I have seen many people write and complain about Twitter and I am one of them too. Yes! There are so many robots on Twitter but if you can get past that fact and managed to get lucky after some time and engage a few people then you might find out how to use Twitter more effectively. I had an experience of a powerful Retweet several months ago that I believe sent hundreds of people to my website to see a particular page that was extremely useful to website owners. What I believe happened is enough people got to see it and someone who does not even use Twitter managed to somehow find out about the page and they posted a link from their blog to my website. When I checked my website statistics later on I found that some unknown person was linking to me. This was amazing because I really believe it was because of Twitter. Although using Twitter will not necessarily help your website in search engine ranking it is definitely a powerful tool that we can use to engage people that we might never of have the chance to engage before. I made the following media presentation to show people who was going on during that day when I got the Retweet. The video is kind of dreamy in a way but that is how I like to imagine things and I believe that sometimes we can impart knowledge to others through very simple audio and visual. I hope you like it.

The next video is also about Retweet but in this video the Retweet manages to accomplish a task. Lets say that you wanted something to happen and you were lucky enough to get enough people to Retweet your message so that it was going out of this world into space. Of course the Tweet is not going into space but it is spreading through cyberspace and I thought that the following video might help people to understand the power or should I say the "potential" of Twitter even more.

I believe that it is a good thing to have a Twitter account for security purposes as well. If you ever had a problem and needed to contact a whole bunch of people you knew (or even slightly knew) for some immediate response or help .. for whatever reason, then Twitter is for you!

Some people say that Squidoo is just a blog. I don't agree with that at all. I like Squidoo and have written about it in several places. There is something very different about the Squidoo mechanism and it has to do with education. Whoever designed the Squidoo system are brilliant people, not just because of their programming ability but also because they know that there are a lot of people who need help building their own channel. Are you curious about Squidoo? I made the following video for you if you are!

If you get to know some of the people on Squidoo you will find out that many of them gained the courage to write and add content to the Squidoo network because of the way Squidoo encouraged them. There is something called "professional writing" which is part of what some blogs are about but the internet was not designed just for professional writers. No! The idea of the WWW (world wide web) is to connect people from all over the world so that they can exchange information and ideas. This means that writing will involve people from all walks of life including the arts, science, entertainment, sports and even children. Do you know what I found to be the most powerful evidence that Squidoo is the right place for newbies who want to improve their writing? It began by seeing a mere child able to complete a web page on Squidoo almost all by herself. Do you want to know what was the second thing about Squidoo that moved me even more? Well, it was the fact that adult Squids took the time to thank her for her contributions by posting a reply in her comment section. They knew that she was a mere child and needed all the encouragement that she could get. This showed to me that there are some people on Squidoo who are real and sensitive to the needs of others. You will not find this on a lot of other networks and that is probably why there are lots of people who are staying with Squidoo. I don't think that many of the hardcore Squidders stay on Squidoo for the money. I think that a lot of them like the high quality interaction and respect that people give to each other on the network.

If you need more reasons to sign up with Squidoo then you can visit my website where I have some information on how to use Squidoo. If you found this page and managed to sign up with Squidoo and make your first lens, then let me know about it on the Squidoo network. You can find "whoisbid" on Squidoo and send me a message. I will be thrilled to find out that someone joined Squidoo because of something that I wrote on Blogger.

I don't want to ruin your Squidoo experience but I can tell you a little bit about it if you have been a person who wanted to make webpages but really found it difficult to know just how much you should be doing and where you should stop. The Squidoo system will allow you to make almost any kind of web page that you want but they also kind of know just how much content you will need as a minimum. They have a module system where they are kind of holding you by the hand in the beginning and teaching you about the need to upload a certain amount. You can also make money on Squidoo but I am not an expert on that topic. I have not joined Squidoo to make money from it but there are people on Squidoo who have learned to make money.

Some people are writing about leaving Squidoo, leaving HubPages, leaving Blogger and Wordpress for various reasons and I have read some of those blogs but when it comes to Squidoo I cannot find the justification for leaving the Squidoo network not only from a personal perspective but also from a technical one too.

If you are looking for something a little bit different and a place to get a lot of quality support then I recommend that you first join Squidoo before going to other places. Using Squidoo might also be a great preparation for you if you intent to make your own websites later on. They give you the feel for it... and if you make a few lenses (lenses in Squidoo are articles) then you will be able to feel the rhythm.

I am not the only person who likes Squidoo and in fact there are some people who love Squidoo and almost worship it. I don't think that I will be going that far but here is a video giving you proof that some of them have fallen in love with the Squids! Well.. this lady wrote about Bumble Bees and believe it or not she got her lens featured. There are lots of people love nature on Squidoo.. I will let you decide for yourself if Squidoo is for you and the best way to find out is to give it a try this week.

Most people already knew about Lady Gaga but I only started to become interested in "Lady Gaga" more recently. Somehow I found myself listening to her music. Wow! Do you know what happened after that? Well, I am now a fan of Lady Gaga and think that some of her music is fantastic! I also like her videos. I have even been watching people who have been inspired by Lady Gaga Nail Art and find it fascinating that so many artists have been affected and influenced by her. Take a look at the next video to see what I mean.

Can you see the kind of effort that was produced simply because of Lady Gaga? This means that this Lady not only has energy herself but she is also spreading her energy everywhere! I am sure that plenty of people like Lady Gaga just like me and you are going to visit this page and appreciate something unique that has been put together by one of her fans!

This is not the only place I have written about Lady Gaga. No! It is not just on my website where you will find me praising Lady Gaga. You can also take a look at Lady Gaga Power and Lady Gaga Popularity which gives you all the evidence you need to know that I could be her fan for real!

I am going to make a video list of some of her popular stuff for fans who are passing through this page and want to be able to listen to some of her best stuff on a list.

Let's start with Alejandro shall we? I am going to tell you what moves me about this production as well!

I guess teenagers are going to know more about the way that a Latino should be pronouncing this word .. yes.. it is "ALEHANDRO" and do you know what is so amazing about it to me? The question we need to ask is whether or not it is really Lady Gaga performing in this video. If it is Lady Gaga, then she has certainly been able to re-invent herself. Take a closer look at the blond star and how she has put that heavy eye liner on so well. Later on you see her dressed like a Star Wars Beauty Queen. I can't find any other words to describe this and you have to see how she has used colour in such an imaginative way. Of course she also appears in Black and White which reminds us that she also has something called "Style" - that is the impression the switching from colors to black and white had on me!

Now we have to move to "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga and I bet there are tons of people who have heard this song but are unfamiliar with the video.

What is it about this song that makes it so easy to remember? Well, it is RA-RA-RA -AH- AH... and the way it has been done gives it that brand feeling. What is the brand?  Can't you see that she has turned Baby's words "GAGA" ..into something that is rocking the world?  It is not GAGA-GOOGOO but RAMA- AH-AH-AH ... and millions of young people know this very well. This song is unforgettable and do you want to know what the best part of the video is for me? It is 1.25 where she gives that look with the oversized eyes. Don't you know that she just won millions of teenage girls in Japan with that look? Come on folks! Lady Gaga is no fool! She is not just an artist but a marketeer extraodinaire! No wonder she has the greatest number of followers on Twitter . Do you know that the Google and Facebook Twitter accounts combined cannot keep up with the Lady Gaga Twitter Following? I wonder how valuable Gaga has just made Twitter?

Yes! Lady Gaga is making money for everyone and didn't you know that she had something to do with Google Chrome? I could write about that too but I think it is best to jump to the next video where Lady Gaga is a BIG GIRL NOW.. and you better believe it! She is also endorsing "New Kids on the Block" and Oh My! How lucky they are to be associated with GAGA-LA-LA-LA!

There are a lot of people who might not of seen the video above where she out shines New Kids on the Block and steals the show. Yes! Gaga you are definitely a big girl now!


There are plenty of people who are not familiar with the term "Anemometer" but if you ask them about "Wind Meters" it is not difficult for them to know what you are talking about. Of course the scientific and engineering community have to know what an Anemometer is but there are still people who might be interested to know a little bit more. This is why it is probably a good idea to write about this wind instrument and the different types of Anemometers

A good place to start would be with  "cup anemometers " which are very common and popular with meteorological experts who do scientific studies on the weather. The following video presentation is a modern day tribute to the Inventor. If you are interested to know what he looked like you might enjoy the tribute and the music which was designed to bring honor to this great man of science.

The Doctor's first models were using 4 cups but now it is more common to use 3. It is amazing that so much time has passed since it was first invented and it's popularity still remains. There are engineers who simply love this type of instrument and will select it when given the choice. Manufacturers all over the world offer different designs depending on the application and necessary precision requirements and some even make the cups out of stainless steel.

Sometimes you will see that making a simple version of this wind instrument is something that teachers will do for their students. If you are interested in making your own home made 3 or 4 cup anemometer for a practical demonstration and a lot of fun ,then the following video gives some excellent instructions.


All you will need are some paper cups, scissors, some lengths of cardboard, plastic sealant or plasticine, some pins, a stapling device and something to colour the final product. If you do this then it is highly likely that the children who involve themselves in this activity will never forget you and the word "Anemometer" Remembering a long name like John Thomas Romney Robinson might be a bit more difficult and I guess he would not mind if we simply refer to him as "Dr. Robinson- the inventor of the cup anemometer.

Grown ups also want to get involved in building their own anemometer but this is for more serious reasons. Of course you can always buy one and save a lot of time and energy but some people enjoy being involved in building their own weather stations. It is most likely that a lot of these people are also trying to harness wind power to save on costs by producing their own electricity. The following video gives a good example of what people can do to have some fun and hopefully save some cash. It is amazing what you can do with a bicycle wheel and a bit of ingenuity.


Believe it or not, wind is actually related to the sun's energy. Yes ! The uneven heat on the earth's surface, the fact that the surfaces are uneven and earth rotation all combine to make wind. Wind can be affected by the terrain water, plants and trees too!  If you are interested in making your own wind turbine there are wind and water power programs offered by several governmental institutions.


What is the Combined Science IGCSE? If you are from the United States it may not be relevant. This is a topic for people who have been following a UK Type Education System.  First of all I need to ask my readers if they have an inquisitive mind. You don't need to be terribly inquisitive but are there questions in your mind about how things work?  There are going to be students who will be faced with a problem of choosing whether or not to pursue science at around the age of 16 but I think that if you have any sort of questions about science but you don't necessarily want to become a scientist then this is a great course for you. Forget about the technical meaning of IGCSE because the terms keep changing all the time. If you are losing me then watch "She Blinded Me with Science" by Thomas Dolby first so that you can get into the mood!

I know that the screen capture for the blinding science video is not very impressive and the film is a bit old but it should be able to do the job!
