3D CSS Box Model

I know this’ll be a bit geeky for many of you, but as a webdesigner, I end up trying to explain concepts like margin, padding, etc. all the time. It’s not always the easiest to grasp, especially trying to understand how they all go together. Thanks to John Hicks of HicksDesign, this 3-D model of the concept should make matters much easier.

Adversity? Disabled? Don’t think so.

Brilliant talk, especially for those of you who are teachers/coaches/athletes/parents. And while she doesn’t show them in this video, Aimee has some amazing legs…

Mullins was born with fibular hemimelia (missing fibula bones) and, as a result, had both of her legs amputated below the knee when she was a year old. She is a graduate of Parkland High School in Allentown and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
While attending Georgetown University, she competed against able-bodied athletes in NCAA Division I track and field events. She competed in the Paralympics in 1996 in Atlanta, in which she ran the 100-meter dash in 17.01 seconds and jumped 3.14 meters in the long-jump.
Also while at Georgetown, Mullins won a place on the Foreign Affairs internship program, working at The Pentagon. She also makes appearances as a motivational speaker, and is a fashion model and actress. (from Wikipedia)
