What’s a professional learning network?

According to Marc-André Lalande, “a Personal Learning Network is a way of describing the group of people that you connect with to learn their ideas, their questions, their reflections, and their references.”

Of course, your PLN is not limited to online interactions, but their always-on availability makes them powerful.

The home sperm test kit is a quick self-evaluation device for male fertility allowing the detection of the quantity of spermatozoa in a man’s semen. With the spermcheck fertility home test, you can test your chances of having children at home in a few minutes. This test can help to determine whether non-conception during sexual intercourse at the time of ovulation may be due to a lower than average sperm count: because a low sperm concentration may indicate a lower probability of pregnancy.
