Amphibians are small vertebrates that need water, or a moist environment, to survive. The species in this group include frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. All can breathe and absorb water through their very thin skin. Amphibians also have special skin glands that produce useful proteins.

Hippopotamus
The hippopotamus, also called the hippo, common hippopotamus, or river hippopotamus, is a large semiaquatic mammal native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus. Its name comes from the ancient Greek for "river horse"

Nope. Amphibians are anything that lives in water and on land. It can be a critter or it can be a vehicle or almost anything. Anything amphibious is an amphibian.

Frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts use lungs.

No debating awards but did get one for teaching.

I was never on the debate team. Never won any debates.

I did once upon a time get an award for teaching. 1989.

A small minority among the TA's, including myself, received "Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor" awards from a rinky dink little school called the University of California at Berkeley.

Let's see... 1999. An actual teacher in college, but not a real professor.

Almost no teaching positions at community colleges want a biogeochemist.

So, I was an adjunct faculty freeway flyer at two community colleges.

They let a biogeochemist teach chemistry, environmental science, and natural history.

One of them was a tiny Native American tribal college.

Barely a hundred students total. Nice small classes for intimate discussion.

On weekends there I got to teach entirely in Spanish to a different group of students.

The other one was HUGE. The single most ethnically diverse community college in all the United States, with a student population the size of small town.

But I never won any debates.

So, I figure a person should choose to do the things that they are best at.

squeal over's sock:No debating awards but did get one for teaching.

Those who can, do. Those who cannot, have no choice but to seek tenure at a university.

Getting an award for "teaching" is getting an award for one's inability to be good enough at anything else in order to be competitive.

squeal over's sock:I did once upon a time get an award for teaching. 1989.

A small minority among the TA's, including myself, received "Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor" awards from a rinky dink little school called the University of California at Berkeley.

Berkeley is thoroughly Marxist. They HATE the idea of competition because none of the faculty are competent at anything and they have no intention of training any of their students to be competitive ... so they hand out awards for everything superficial like they are the Special Olympics. The grad student next to you probably got the "Amazing Graduate Student" ribbon and the one behind him probably got the "Best Swagger" award.

squeal over's sock:Let's see... 1999. An actual teacher in college, but not a real professor.

So, you were officially not competitive in anything in 1999. Check.

squeal over's sock:Almost no teaching positions at community colleges want a biogeochemist.

... because that's a religious title, not an academic discipline.

You don't know any science, and you are trying to sell yourself as knowing science. The best you can do is to invent a religion and pretend that it is "thettled thienth."

Of course nobody want's to hire anyone whose only credential is that he really, really , really believes that his WACKY religion is falsifiable science.

squeal over's sock:So, I was an adjunct faculty freeway flyer at two community colleges.

They were apparently desperate as well. All the competent people were out competing in their disciplines and being successful.

squeal over's sock:One of them was a tiny Native American tribal college.

I can see that. Probably not accredited.

squeal over's sock:On weekends there I got to teach entirely in Spanish to a different group of students.

I've done that ... but it was in standardized business processes at NATO for Spanish officers. It turns out that they have their own technical terms for things and I amplified my vocabulary substantially.

squeal over's sock:The other one was HUGE. The single most ethnically diverse community college in all the United States, with a student population the size of small town.

So, not the brightest bulbs in the pack but the most diverse in physical appearance. Got it.

squeal over's sock:So, I figure a person should choose to do the things that they are best at.

You are good at speaking to people who have wide-ranging physical appearances. Yay!

Google "Cyclical Continuum of Elemental Properties"

The Native American students just weren't getting it the first time, when it was time for the lecture about the Periodic Table of Elements.

The same presentation had been effective enough at the other community college.

But the puzzled looks, and the multiple questions revealed they weren't seeing the continuity.

The cultural bias of doing a lot of reading, starting at the top left, going across to the right, and then ASSUMING the continuity to the left end of the next line down.

The table was arranged like written text.

So, I started to draw a big spiral on the white board with hydrogen at the center.

That's when I got to see a bunch of students at once all get that delighted look of understanding.

The lecture went fine after that.

A few years later I started working on one at home that could be used as a teaching tool.

You can see it with five words entered into Google.

Chemistry teachers use it as a teaching tool.

Another special moment with those students came in the Natural History class.

When it was time for the lecture about Evolutionary Biology, they got it a whole lot faster than the students at the other college.

I think I was just a sentence or to into it.

I said, "All living organisms, every animal, plant, fungus, and microorganism are blood relatives descended from a single common ancestor."

That delighted look was already on everyone's face.

They had never been taught this before as science, but they knew it well as a fundamental truth known for generations.

An amphibian is any of a group of cold-blooded vertebrate animals (as frogs and toads) that have gills and live in water as larvae but breathe air as adults. Since alligators do not have gills they are not amphibians.

Periodic Table versus Cyclical Continuum of Elemental Properties.

The Periodic Table of Elements was invented by two different scientists in two different countries at about the same time, without either of them knowing the other had done it too.

They both had the same disadvantage.

Arranged in tabular form like lines of written text, they showed alkali metals (sodium, potassium, etc.) at the far left, and the noble gases (helium, neon, etc.) at the far right.

This created the visual appearance that alkali metals and noble gases were at the opposite extremes of a gradient or spectrum.

And there were those pesky lanthanides and actinides.

Just to make it fit on one page, they had to put these 30 elements somewhere else.

This creates the visual appearance that there is another spectrum or gradient that is somehow separate from the main body of elements.

They knew that in reality the two groups (alkali metals and halogens) are right next to each other along a continuum of properties, and attempted to display it in different ways.

A flat spiral display with hydrogen at the center, such as the Cyclical Continuum of Elemental Properties, was the first. More than a century and a half before I "invented" it.

One of the two original inventors also made a three dimensional conical figure.

Hydrogen was at the top of the cone, the heaviest elements at the bottom, and a spiral line descended around the cone from top to bottom.

But they lacked a lot of information, such as what were the unique properties of the lanthanides and actinides, and many elements had not been discovered yet.

But the incomplete Periodic Table actually enabled them to PREDICT some of the elements yet to be discovered.

And the difference between iodine and tellurium also revealed something interesting.

Tellurium, Te, and iodine, I, were almost equally heavy.

Tellurium has average atomic mass 127.6, where iodine has 126.9.

Iodine is not as heavy as tellurium, but its chemical properties were like the other halogens (fluorine, chlorine, etc.).

Iodine has atomic number 53, where tellurium is 52.

The heavier element has lower atomic number.

They couldn't arrange the table strictly according to weight, because tellurium was nothing like the halogens in its properties.

So they arranged it according to PROPERTIES rather than weight, and put tellurium ahead of iodine along the continuum.

What the Cyclical Continuum of Elemental Properties has that those first spiral displays more than a century and a half ago did not was newer information that could be displayed visually.

The width of the colored arcs, for each group of elements, represents which electron orbitals are responsible for the distinguishing chemical properties of each group.

The broadest arcs are for those whose characteristic properties arise from electrons is "s" or "p" orbitals. Intermediate width arcs are for those whose identifying properties arise from electrons in "d" orbitals. And the narrowest arcs are for those groups whose distinguishing properties arise from electrons in "f" orbitals.

Wrong again. That is only an arbitrary, and poorly selected, label adopted by you and some others. In English, an amphibian is anything (noun) that has the quality of being amphibious (adjective).

You are incorrect until you fall in line with the English language. You don't get to pick and choose when English applies.

Since alligators are obviously amphibious, they are amphibians. You don't get a say in the matter.

Polar bears are amphibians as well. There is no denying it. You saw the images I posted.

After the first batch ran out, I never got around to getting more made.

Chemistry teachers and chemistry students bought them all up.

Perfectionist plans to improve it got in the way.

Element #112, copernecium, had been officially recognized, and I wanted to include it.

I also wanted to put in a new column to the far left indicating "Periods" for the Periodic Table part of it.

You hit the nail on the head as to why I am not on the government payroll.

Now let's talk about how you always OBEY what you are told, even when it's wrong.

At some point, someone told you to ignore the English language and to deny that virtually all amphibious animals are amphibians.

Who, exactly, are you OBEYING when you do that? Are you on the government payroll? Do your moraines know this?

People who actually understand chemistry love the picture.

Others who simply enjoy the beauty of patterns in the universe love it too.

Trolls who have joined the Culto de Religion Anti Cientifica are afraid to even look at it.

Don't be afraid. Let me walk you through the hard stuff.

I'm more of a teacher than a debater.

Real science teachers in the real world love my shit.

Google "Cyclical Continuum of Elemental Properties"

The Native American students just weren't getting it the first time, when it was time for the lecture about the Periodic Table of Elements.

The same presentation had been effective enough at the other community college.

But the puzzled looks, and the multiple questions revealed they weren't seeing the continuity.

The cultural bias of doing a lot of reading, starting at the top left, going across to the right, and then ASSUMING the continuity to the left end of the next line down.

The table was arranged like written text.

So, I started to draw a big spiral on the white board with hydrogen at the center.

That's when I got to see a bunch of students at once all get that delighted look of understanding.

The lecture went fine after that.

A few years later I started working on one at home that could be used as a teaching tool.

You can see it with five words entered into Google.

Chemistry teachers use it as a teaching tool.

Another special moment with those students came in the Natural History class.

When it was time for the lecture about Evolutionary Biology, they got it a whole lot faster than the students at the other college.

I think I was just a sentence or to into it.

I said, "All living organisms, every animal, plant, fungus, and microorganism are blood relatives descended from a single common ancestor."

That delighted look was already on everyone's face.

They had never been taught this before as science, but they knew it well as a fundamental truth known for generations.

Imagine the difficulty of the biology instructor.

A student is stubbornly insisting that alligators are amphibians.

He won't shut up about it.

According to this sub average student's definition, driftwood is an amphibian.

An amphibian with a three stage life cycle. Born on land, goes out to sea later in life, then completes its life cycle by returning to be on land.

What can a teacher do when the student is unteachable?

"all English speakers understand that all amphibious animals are amphibians.",
There's Toad the Wet Sprocket (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12bM1CqHoBY) and amphibians. We know that an amphibian absorbs oxygen through its skin. What we don't know is if Toad the Wet Sprocket does.
And is it the breathable skin of the amphibian that separates it from both fish and mammalian species? It's skin absorbs oxygen in the water while not filtering water like a fish. Kind of basic information everyone knows.
