Page flip to keep up with the links I found elsewhere and need to check out more closely…

Science Toys – “Make toys at home with common household materials, often in only a few minutes, that demonstrate fascinating scientific principles.”

Die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie, “leicht verständlich erzählt als Bildergeschichte – eine kleine Einführung in die Ideen Albert Einsteins”.

NY Times: A German Voyager’s Bold Vision for Tibet’s Blind. (No registration required; this is a mirror on Heidi Connal‘s site.) Sabriye Tenberken is a German who studied Tibetology in spite of being blind. She developed a Braille alphabet for Tibetan and has started a project to teach blind children in Tibet. I recently read her book My Path Leads to Tibet: The Inspiring Story of How One Young Blind Woman Brought Hope to the Blind Children of Tibet (deutscher Titel: Mein Weg führt nach Tibet – die blinden Kinder von Lhasa).
