  • The Australian Shepherd breed shows a unique kaleidoscope of color variety in the coats and eyes. This field guide presents both the common standard colors listed in the ASCA breed standard as well as the common nonstandard colors we see and gives the genetics of each, when known. The Technical section includes a color breeding FAQ, a list of of known loci and their actions, a chart of color nomenclature, and a glossary of genetic terms. The Markings section shows the many interesting markings, modifying genes, patterns of iris pigmentation of the eyes, and some fascinating series of 2 puppies changing colors as they mature, as well as two adults changing color. There is a section on the birth of a pair of identical twin blue merle puppies. There is also a section on visible eye defects. A true self merle is pictured on the red merle page, and some phantom (cryptic) merles have been added. There is also a page showing several dogs that are two colors at once – a somatic mutation. Genetics is a rapidly developing field, and updates will be made as new information and photos become available.

  • When Disney rolls something out, there’s a fanfare of trumpets, a red carpet and sometimes even a glittering burst of fireworks. By contrast, the launch of the Disney Connected Learning program has been as subtle as, oh, say a green screen. Six years ago, Disney began exploring how use its considerable design, entertainment and financial muscle in the “learning” arena. It decided to try to create games that children would find genuinely entertaining that were nonetheless built on legitimate learning “goals.” Over the past two years, it has quietly been refining eight games based on learning objectives in its wildly popular online site for kids, Club Penguin. Several of the games have been hits. “Pufflescape,” for instance, is the second most popular game in Club Penguin. More than 30 million children have played it over the past two years.

  • Imagine walking into a 1,300-year-old Buddhist cave carved from a cliff overlooking a stretch of the ancient Silk Road in Dunhuang, China. You point your flashlight and frescoes showing musicians and bodhisattvas come alive with sound and color. The experience is life-changing. Now imagine doing all that in a room in a museum thousands of miles from the Silk Road. When the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, hosted Pure Land: Inside the Mogao Grottoes at Dunhuang last week (shown above), it marked not just a groundbreaking new standard for virtual reality exhibitions, but also a glimpse of what the museum of the future may look like. Where paintings and sculpture fill galleries today, could immersive virtual realities and 3D printed replicas of priceless originals fill the physical (and online) galleries of tomorrow?
