The Star-Spangled Banner: The Flag that Inspired the National Anthem

On September 14, 1814, U.S. soldiers at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry raised a huge American flag to celebrate a crucial victory over British forces during the War of 1812. The sight of those “broad stripes and bright stars” inspired Francis Scott Key to write a song that eventually became the United States national anthem. Key’s words gave new significance to a national symbol and started a tradition through which generations of Americans have invested the flag with their own meanings and memories.

This tutorial will help the young learners to understand the process of breathing. The learners will be able to visualize that when we take in the air, the lungs expand and when we breathe out, the air leaves the lungs and they return to the resting state.

Easily Sign Documents In Your Browser or On Your Tablet

The other day I received an email from a reader who was looking for a way to digitally sign documents. My suggestion was to try Hello Sign. Hello Sign is a service that allows you to digitally sign documents. Hello Sign can be used in your web browser, on your iPhone, on your iPad, and on your Android tablet.

On your computer you can use Hello Sign to record your signature by using your mouse or by importing a picture of your signature. Then whenever you need to sign a document just upload it to Hello Sign and apply your stored signature. You can email your newly signed document directly from Hello Sign. Alternatively you can use the Hello Sign Chrome app or the Hello Sign Gmail plug-in.

On your iPhone, iPad, or Android device you can use Hello Sign by selecting a document or by taking a picture of a document. I tried it out on my iPad and was impressed by how easy it was to use. I just opened the app, logged into my Hello Sign account, and snapped a picture of a document. After the picture was captured I had the option to apply a stored signature or sign the document using my finger on my iPad’s screen.
