Earth’s Water 

Fresh Water
Limited, scarce
Drinking, irrigating, cooking
On Earth only 3% of our H2O is fresh and 97% is salty
Shipping, fishing, sailing
Abundant, plentiful
Salt Water

Homemade light diffuser


When I read to students using the document camera and projector there is a glare from the fluorescent lights on the pages. If I turn off the lights I cannot see the words. Looking into the issue I found I could buy light diffusers for $35.00 per light. So I made one myself by laminating tissue paper and using double-sided duct tape to stick it to the lights. The width of the laminator is the right size (2 feet) and I ran a two four-foot lengths. The only problem is I used green and blue, so now under the lights my gray hair looks green!
