Arusha - born 5ft 7ins tall after mum's 15 month pregnancy - already has a head for heights after the six foot drop to the ground when Rita gave birth standing up.

Stock.xchng - Stock Exchange http://www.sxc.hu/As discussed earlier, there are plenty of images on this site with more lax licensing that doesn’t require attribution.

Too Much Information
We have so much to share with the audience
that we tend to cramp up each slide with text
The audience now has to multitask:
1. listen to the speaker
2. read the slide
1. Speaker is useless: can simply hand out the slides,
at least the audience won’t have to multitask.
(As I am saying this, half of you are reading the slides and
not listening to me.)
2. Multitasking is tiring. What do we do when we are tired?
