Bertie — April 30, I love audio books so I am delighted to discover this site. My niece also loves audio books. I recently started teaching at a primary school teaching french and we have oral reading twice a week. I have been thinking of how I could help the teachers come up with a better way to encourage the children to love reading. This is it… I will get them to use Storynory from now one. I am sure the students and teachers will love it.
Thank you Storynory.

Bertie — May 10, Although this is a poem, I find it to be quite an interesting story with loads of good advice for the children and adults too. I think this is wonderful.

Please continue this site my granddaughters and grandson love it. I loved it!!!!!!!!! This week michal Rosen is coming to visit our school I am so exited!!!! Why has storynory changed? I found this poem quite entertaining. I listened with my three young grandsons before bedtime. Good for expanding the vocabulary! I am a teacher and hope to use storynory for my students to listen and enjoy your poems and stories! Please Reply Back!

My goal is to determine which mangroves and how many mangroves need to be included in marine reserves to safeguard coral reef fish for generations to come. One of the biggest obstacles to protecting coral reef fish is identifying which juvenile nurseries supply the most fish to coral reefs. However, no one knew which of these schools graduated the most students into successful adults.
I am developing a method, using chemical tags in the ear bones of coral reef fish, to identify which juvenile nurseries are supplying fish to the adult populations on coral reefs. Tracking the movements of marine animals has led to incredibly inventive techniques that would make Sherlock Holmes proud. Scientists studying big animals such as whales, sharks, and giant tuna can use sophisticated electronic tags that beam data directly to their offices via satellite as these animals make spectacular ocean migrations.

The fish I study are far too small for that: If I put such tags on a juvenile snapper, it would sink to the bottom like a rock. To find out where my fish have traveled, I need something a little more subtle. Studying biology and chemistry as an undergraduate at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, gave me the idea to approach ecological questions such as fish migration from a chemical perspective. Mangrove swamps contain carbon, oxygen, and sulfur with distinctive stable isotopes—natural, nonharmful variations in elements that act like a unique chemical address.

The chemical makeup of each ring tells us where the fish had been living during that period of time—a fishy chemical address book. Over the past two years, I have been figuring out how to decipher the chemical addresses stored in otoliths using stable isotope chemistry. As it turns out, some of the smallest compounds may tell the biggest stories.
I have used "damned fine", which doesn't feature in the list. Is that OK?

Bellos has used this book, in part, as a means of demolishing received ideas about translation. I am all in favour of demolishing received ideas but, as Gloria Steinem said, the truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

I would have lazily assented to the proposition that a translation is no substitute for the original, but this, as Bellos points out, is a stupid thing to say when you consider that, in fact, a substitute for the original is exactly what a translation is. And if we didn't have translations, then we would, as he points out, have no knowledge of the Bible, the works of Tolstoy, or Planet of the Apes.
People have always been saying daft things about translation. He dismisses as sexist nonsense the old adage, first expressed in French, that translations are like women — if they're beautiful, they're not faithful, and if they're faithful, they're not beautiful; although he doesn't mention the even stupider and more sexist nonsense that Nabokov spouted when he said that women don't make good translators. One of the earliest descriptions of translators is a rather complex-looking collection of cuneiform wedges which means, in Sumerian, "turner"; this Bellos likes, and his meditation on the various words languages use for the concept of translation is itself illuminating.
