What power supply will I need for this instructable?

I'm currently working on the instructable below and am having powers deciding what type of power supply I need to run it smoothly. I have found a number of LiPo boards and batteries, but all only run up to around 3.7V. Please could someone recommend a website or shop within the UK where I may be able to purchase a suitable power source? I notice from the schematic on the following page that this may need to be at least 5V to be successful. https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Lilypad-Interactive-Passion-Sensing-Scarf/step4/Infrared-Emitter-and-Phototransistor/ Kind regards, Andrew.

How do I connect the phototransistor and emitter in this tutorial?

Hi, I'm currently working through the above tutorial and am struggling with setting up the Phototransistor and Emitter. There is a circuit diagam on the third page of the tutorial but I cannot work out how to connect the Emitter and Phototransistor to the rest of the circuit. If anyone could advise me further I'd be very grateful. Kind regards, KugarWeb.

I am very passionate about cooking!

I was always very found of cooking everything about it amazes me and I get very curious and eager to mix and match the ingredients and make something good about it as I belong to an Indian family we love spices and cury and specially non-veg but in USA we dont get all spices which we need so we bring the available ones and try to make something of it which taste like hometown and reminds us of our hometown. My parents love cooking too and when I was 5 my dad told me observation is the best key to be a good cook you first observe how me and your mommy makes the food and then go and try to make some and I was fully into those words after few years my mommy gave me the permission to use kitchen I always tried making something which my parents loved and I started cooking more often and got better by time. It might take some time to be a perfectionist not saying that I'm a one but it will be worthy.If this post is helpful to you in any way I appreciate it alot.

Elefanternas passion för matematik och naturvetenskap - Edublogs

Http://isabellica.edublogs.org/2013/03/09/elefanternas-passion-for-matematik-och-naturvetenskap/ UB studenter att göra lärande mer hands-on, tillämpliga för pre-collegiate studenter Den endast lärande hinder Lavone Rodolph stött på gymnasiet försökte kombinera vad han lärt sig i klassrummet med det verkliga livet, sade han. Då var utbildning ibland immateriella bortom tjäna ett betyg. “Om jag lära ett koncept i klass, fysik eller kemi, ibland jag inte visste hur jag skulle använda det i mitt personliga liv eller jag visste inte nytta av lärande det än passerar en test,” sade Rodolph. Rodolph-nu en doktorand i datateknik – försöker förbättra lärandet för studenter vid sitt alma mater, Hutchinson Central teknisk högstadium i Downtown Buffalo, så de inte behöver möta den samma problem som han gjorde. Rodolph arbetar med tvärvetenskaplig vetenskap och teknik partnerskap (ISEP), ett femårigt program som leds av UB. Dess huvudsakliga fokus är att förbättra upplevelsebaserat lärande i naturvetenskap, teknik, teknik och matematik fält (STEM) för studenter i Buffalo offentliga skolor. Forskning har visat att en betydande andel − − 33 procent av barnen börjar tappa intresset för vetenskap så unga som 8 år. Av middle school ökar andelen till nästan hälften av dessa barn, enligt National Center for STEM grundutbildning. ISEP syftar till nytändning i en passion för vetenskap och andra STEM ämnen genom att erbjuda mitten och gymnasieelever en mer praktisk, tvärvetenskapligt förhållningssätt till lärande. Det innebär planering studiebesök att stärka förståelsen av lärande material och utformning laboratorieförsök som illustrerar abstrakta begrepp. Dessa aktiviteter gör lärande STEM ämnen kul, ett mål som Rodolph anser vara högsta prioritet för ISEP. “Huvudmålet är nr 1, att göra något kul STEM fält på högstadiet nivå,” sade Rodolph. “Sätt från högstadiet nivå, de vill fortsätta det på gymnasienivå. Och igen, målet på gymnasienivå är att göra det roligt och utmanande, så från gymnasienivå, de kan fullfölja ett STEM fält på kollegial nivå.” Som en examen assistent, har Rodolph hjälpt med samordna lärare i flera projekt. Dessa inkluderar undervisning Android-programmering, instruera eleverna på att skapa kol-dioxid-drivna racecars och planerar en resa till Buffalo Museum of Science att se hur DNA kan användas i rättsmedicinska undersökningar. Sedan starten 2005 har expanderat ISEP från två pilotskolor till 12 hög-behov mitten och gymnasier. Under 2011 fick det $9,8 miljoner euro i finansiering från National Science Foundation (NSF). − och andra stödjande partner som arbetar med tre viktiga partner − Buffalo offentliga skolor, Buffalo State College och buffel Museum of Science Roswell Park Cancer Institute, ISEP syftar till att uppnå sitt mål att förbättra elevernas lärande genom att samla resurserna. Lärarutbildningen är en stor del av ISEP’S plan. För att bättre förbereda lärare att göra STEM utbildning mer relevant för eleverna, kan ISEP och dess partner lärare att bli studenterna själva. Under somrarna, lärare utveckla deras professionella kompetens genom att arbeta med UB doktorander och tillägna sig färdigheter inom forskning och utredning undervisning. Under läsåret, både akademiker och studenter hjälper lärare utforma och genomföra mer hands-on lärande i klassrummet. “[ISEP] mål är att ge lärarna en ökad professionalisering, öka utbildning lärarna själva, så de kan få sin utbildning tillbaka till skolor och skapa bestående fördelar för studenter, säger Phillip Tucciarone, en junior kemiteknik stora. Han har varit involverad i ISEP för tre terminer och designar främst och genomför “hands-on laborationer” samordna lärare. ISEP har gjort framsteg sedan dess tillkomst, enligt UB News Center. För exempelvis studenter i ISEP klassrum på Native American Magnet School, en av de två pilot skolorna, har varit ungefär “30 procent mer sannolikt än distriktet jämnåriga att uppnå kompetens på den åttonde klass stat vetenskap examen”, enligt UB News Center. Innan sådan förbättring, var Native American Magnet School på listan skolor Under registrering granskning (SURR). SURR skolor är lågpresterande skolor som inte uppfyller statliga normer, enligt New York utbildning utrikesdepartementets hemsida. Native American Magnet School kan vara stängda, sade Joseph Gardella, chef för ISEP och John och Frances Larkin professor i kemi vid UB, via e-post. Native American Magnet School togs bort från listan i 2009, fyra år efter det blev inblandad i ISEP. Se skolans akademiska förbättring bland åttonde klassare har varit en av de många minnesvärda upplevelser för Gardella.

Take a tour of Instructables!

There's so much cool stuff here, I thought people (new and old) might enjoy a guided tour. Instructables is a web-based documentation platform where passionate people share what they do and how they do it, and learn from and collaborate with others. These awesome people make it all happen. The seeds of Instructables germinated at the MIT Media Lab as the future founders of Squid Labs built places to share their projects and help others; more history is here. Instructables is the combination of a number of things. First, there are the Instructables themselves. These are step-by-step descriptions of things people want to share. They are educational, inspirational, and often replicable. The Dachshund Wheel chair is my favorite. A passionate user shared something close to his heart, and has had a positive impact on many lives.There's the whimsical: Magnetic Acrylic Rubik's Cube. And, of course, the whimsical inspired by the whimsical: Magnetic Rubik's Dice Cube. And, the plain ridiculous: How to Get a Free Yacht and its complete saga. A cornerstone of what makes Instructables great is the comments. People ask questions, give praise, or offer improvements; this sets up a conversation between the project author and the community. Check out this cookie recipe where the author responds to a question about substitutions for someone who wants cookies now.Many of the best Instructables have won one of our contests: Show Your Heart Valentine's Day Contest, Holiday Homemade Gifts contest, Take Thanksgiving to the Next Level contest, Halloween Project contest, and The Magnet Challenge. Instructables has a lively forum for opinion and discussion. Really smart and talented people hang out here. Have a look at a forum topic on water tunnel testing complete with Reynold's number equations.Finally, what really makes Instructables great is the community surrounding it. These are passionate people that want to share what they did and how they did it. In recognition of this, Instructables won the 2006 Wired Rave Award for industrial design. Instructables gave power to the individuals so they could positively impact the world. Also, check out some of the news articles about Instructables.

Learning Lifestyle

Here's how I describe Instructables in 10 seconds: The world's biggest Show & Tell, where people share what they do and how they do it. I've found this to be the best way to quickly introduce new people to the site and give them a sense of what's there. The phrase "Show & Tell" reminds people about the best part of grade school: there's entertainment, inspiration, and usually some unexpected, surprising, and most importantly fun learning.Instructables falls into a broad category I've started calling the "Learning Lifestyle" - it's the way creative, curious people approach life. Just like a grade school Show & Tell, a Learning Lifestyle can be entertaining, inspirational, and educational. The best kind of education is serendipitous -- you simply keep your eyes open to opportunities, and are excited and surprised by what you find. The Instructables community lives the Learning Lifestyle. We have Instructables on subjects our community is passionate about, and because people's passions are so diverse, the Instructables they produce are inherently entertaining, inspiring, and surprising. It's great when someone can search the site and find a specific useful project, but I absolutely love it when someone is inspired by the projects on Instructables to create -- and share! -- their own projects. The Learning Lifestyle is all about inspiring viral creativity.So, the next time your run into someone else with a Learning Lifestyle (usually easy to spot; I always find them to be the most interesting people at parties), invite them to join you at the World's Biggest Show and Tell.

Do you cook mostly or all vegetarian food? What are your tips for staying balanced?

Was anyone else raised eating meat, then switched to mostly or all vegetarian cooking? Any tips for how to shop, filling meals, and how to avoid eating too much starch and sugar (pasta & fruit)? I'm thinking about limiting how much meat I eat, but I'm curious how to switch out of a meat-and-potatoes model I'm accustomed to from childhood. I love a good salad, have an enthusiastic passion for bean dishes, and have access to good vegetables. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Does your partner / spouse get annoyed by your constant making and tinkering?

I find that whenever I start working on a new project I can get rather passionate and excited about it. This usually results in me getting a little carried away with the making process (typically spending every spare minute I have working on the "next big thing"). It sometimes gets on my girlfriends nerves and you could say she becomes a bit of a "workshop widow". I'm just wondering how everyone else manages with their work / making / life balance. Looking for your stories and experiences (any tips would also be appreciated!). I've tried getting her involved in some of my projects, but that's easier said than done!

Help with what concrete to use for an usu ( aka a giant mortar)?

I've never worked with concrete before but I have a burning passion to make an usu which is more or less a giant mortar about 1 1/2 foot deep and 2 feet wide in the inside diameter that uses giant mallets as a pestles to pound sweet rice into mochi. What I need to know is what kind concrete will be able to hold up to hot steaming rice and constant impact with wooden mallets without cracking or chipping. My idea is to cut a garbage can down to the height I need and to use a styrofoam mold that are the diamentions of the hole I need. Do I need some kind of release agent or will the water evaporating from the concrete shrink it enough to allow the styrofoam to be taken out?

DELAY MY RADIO!

I love baseball.  I want to watch the World Series on TV, but I don't want to listen to the TV announcers.  I want to listen to the radio broadcast instead.*  Problem is, the "live" TV arrives 1-2 seconds after the radio.  Which means I hear about the deep flyball to left before I see it. And that takes the fun out of watching the game. So, I'm wondering if I can add an adjustable delay to the sound from my radio, to sync up with the picture.  I can sacrifice a boom box or other radio for this if nec. Or some other solution? (I can record both and sync 'em up later using video editing software, but that's not practical). * for baseball fans:  it's the choice between the Buck/McCarver team (perfectly boring & perfectly obnoxious) and Jon Miller/Joe Morgan radio team (passionate and fun).

Comment posting time and counting

I know I have mentioned this before but anyway: When I look at forum topics or the question section I only see a huge mess with the replies. There is no order of any sort that makes sense at all. One reply is a week old, the one after a year and the next only a few hours. Trying to sort this into something related to time or postings is next to impossible at the user end. Especially topics with a lot of replies suffer from this on a regular base and for me it really is a pain trying to sort the replies somehow. I am a passionate user of "normal" forums and used to be able to see postings in the right order of posting insteaf of a big mess. Therefor I would really appreciate at least a button to sort the replies by time and in relation to quotes and direct replies. I mean how hard can it be to provide this instead of the chaos we see instead?

Eric Wilhelm and Christy Canida on Popular Mechanics

Check out Christy Canida & Eric Wilhelm on Popular Mechanics website for the article: 25 Makers Who Are Reinventing the American Dream   "More than the work he did at MIT while earning a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, it was his passion for kite surfing that led Wilhelm to create Instructables. Launched in 2005 with his wife, Christy, and colleagues at the design firm Squid Labs, the DIY website quickly became a forum for step-by-step instructions—the kind Wilhelm had been distributing to fans of his handmade boards and sails. The site, which was bought by Autodesk in 2011, now features more than 100,000 user-generated projects in fields from cooking to woodworking to electronics." Check out the video interview with them on Popular Mechanics. Also, Totusmel gets a shout out!

Teaching Artists Wanted for Summer 2015 Program

Arts Place is looking for artist instructors for our Summer 2015 Arts in the Parks program. Arts in the Parks works with children in rural communities across East Central Indiana and West Central Ohio to introduce them to the arts and foster their creativity. Skills taught in past years include ceramics, fiber art, poetry, theatre performance, puppetry, dance, sculpture and so much more. Classes run from early June through the beginning of August at approximately 15 different sites throughout our service area. We are looking for enthusiastic, creative, and accomplished artist instructors who have a passion for sharing their craft with children aged 6-14. Our teaching artists generally have at least a four-year degree in the arts, but significant experience will also be considered. The selected candidates will have sizable input with the Arts in the Parks coordinator on the community arts projects and workshop curriculum. We are seeking instructors who are flexible, love working with children of all ages, can teach art in new and interesting ways, and are passionate about community building. Teaching artists will be contracted for one- to two-week residencies. Our artists are placed with compatible local families in pleasant surroundings.  This is an important part of our residency experience as local families assist the teaching artist in making meaningful connections to the community. Arts Place is a rurally oriented arts council that operates arts centers in Portland, Indiana, Hartford City, Indiana and St. Mary’s, Ohio. It is our mission to foster the creative spirit in anyone. To apply, please send a resume, samples of your work, class samples or community project ideas, and a letter of interest to llane@artsland.org by January 30th, 2014. To inquire about positions and the program prior to applying, contact Lauren Lane at (270) 726-4809 ext. 230 or at llane@artsland.org. Teaching artists typically earn $650 to $1,000 per week based on training, experience, and demand. Supplies will be provided for classes and mileage between class sites is reimbursed. Artists are responsible for their own meals and travel to and from the area.

Inspired by Instructables

I always loved making things, since I was a kid. But I’ve never thought that I would become addicted to making things, well, in this case ‘addiction’ can be considered as something positive! Anyways, I can’t thank instructables enough for everything. Instructables has helped me in improving my crafting skills, becoming more passionate about crafting and becoming more inspired than ever! Ibles getting featured, winning contests, works being appreciated, getting to know awesome makers from all around the world… I was and still am enjoying all of it. But sadly, I’ve seen only 3 or 4 authors in instructables from my country (Bangladesh). They’ve posted a few ibles but they don’t seem to continue. So, one day I decided to open a maker community in my university. My aim was to gather all the makers from every department of my university and build a crazy maker community and last but not least, encourage them to start sharing their ideas in instructables. When I started to tell everyone about it, some were interested, many were confused, a few were not interested and most students liked the idea but didn’t have time or making/crafting skills.  Well, there have been ups and downs but finally… I met a demon (a friend, who thinks that he’s a demon -_- ) and he helped a lot in opening the club. We went through all the formal procedures for opening the club, we named it ‘SUST Crafters’, SUST is the short form of my university name. We’ve requested for a room in the university center to build our workshop. Our summer vacation starts from next week, so we have to wait until the vacation is over to start making things. I’m very glad that finally we have a maker community and I really hope that the members are passionate about making/ crafting. I want to thank instructables for all this, because the maker club in my university never would have happened if it wasn't for instructables ^_^
