"That's why you would like diigo. You can search your bookmarks. You can annotate them also and search these.So, I annotate them with how I used them in class and then it makes it easy to find. I'm sure there are other services. "

"I just create folders to organize the type of bookmarked source...Student Resources, Teacher Resources, Sci Videos, etc.  Even then, I need to remember to scour a folder when I'm scratching my head over a topic."

Microbe vs. mineral - A life and death struggle in the desert

Full Text:

Although the bursts of rainbow colors in this photograph are mesmerizing, microbes fight for their lives in the background. Zach, a chemist, snapped this image of a salt sample he collected in a hot, arid valley near Death Valley National Park in California. He crushed the salt, placed it under a microscope slide and added a drop of water. Suddenly a slew of microbes came to life as the salt crystals dissolved. Then when the water started evaporating, he took a picture. The colors come from light passing through the growing crystals, which act like prisms.
