Tools for making webpages (web sites).
- (blog) Posts – more timely, often shorter, specific to one topic. Have categories and tags.
- Pages – often more long-term. Could be more lengthy. (Pages do not have categories or tags.)
- Can use blocks or not use blocks
- To edit, append /wp-admin (there is more than one editing environment)
- Uses Blocks (blocks of code, of information on the webpage)
- Uses pages (no posts yet)
Good article on instrumental and relational understanding.
Focus on Relational Understanding
Benjamin Bloom published his taxonomy in 1956. In 2001, the categories were revised. Synthesis was taken out and Creating put in (among other smaller changes).
Erik Francis points out (article link below) the importance for learner to synthesize and puts it back in. Creating is kept. Now there are 7 levels of understanding.

I got a smart watch for Christmas. It has a ‘compass’ that also shows my longitude, latitude, altitude, and the Atmospheric Pressure in hPA.
So I studied up on the units for Atmospheric Pressure. Disclaimer: This is crude. I want to get some numbers I can remember.
Pa is an SI unit for atmospheric pressure. It means Pascal. One Pascal is 1 Newton per square meter. hPa is hectopascal. 1 hPa = 100 Pa
The ‘Imperial’ (English) unit would be PSI (pounds per square inch). BTW, 1 PSI is quite a bit, but 1 Pascal isn’t much.
Often the weather person on television give the atmospheric pressure in inches of Mercury (inHg).
1 inHg = 33.9 hPa
.02953 inHg = 1 hPa
Low, Regular, and High Pressure
1000 hPa (29.5 inHg) is low pressure.
1010 hPa (29.8 inHg) is ‘regular’ pressure.
1040 hPa (30.7 inHg) is high pressure.
The key is which direction is the barometric pressure going (rising or decreasing).
