Field Trips Through Use of Virtual Reality

 Cache   
Eastern Suffolk BOCES technology integration specialist Nikki Fink visited fourth-and fifth-grade students at Frank P. Long Intermediate School, taking them on virtual reality field trips through the use of Google Expedition Virtual Reality. Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction and Accountability Marlon Small explained that the district is exploring the possibility of integrating Google Expedition technology into classrooms in the near future. The technology, which looks like the old-fashioned View Master, is equipped with applications which transport students into various three-dimensional worlds. Use of this technology is paralleled with specific curriculum, such as the study of outer space, animal adaptations and the human respiratory system. “The students are more engaged when they use virtual reality, helping them to recall more information,” Ms. Fink said. “The information is more tangible to the student.” Fourth-grade students visited outer space, where they identified all of the planets and various asteroids. The 360-degree view allowed the students to study identifying factors of each planet and some of their moons, as well as to gain perspective of the planets’ positions to the Sun and Earth. In Camilla Ciervo’s fifth-grade classroom, students gained perspective of the respiratory system using the technology to identify features of the mouth, nose and lungs. The technology even revealed what smoker’s lung looked like.

My virtual reality

 Cache   

Tanya lives with dermatomyositis (a rare disease that causes muscle weakness) and although it hasn’t been formally diagnosed, agoraphobia.

It’s mid-morning and while downing a cup of coffee I run through my schedule for the day. It’s a Friday, so it’s set to be a busy one.

At 6pm, I’m off to Channel 5 to watch Neighbours. 6.30 and it’s a hop-skip-and-a-jump to Channel 4 in time for Hollyoaks. At 7 I’ll swing by ITV to catch up with Emmerdale and Corrie and round the evening off with the BBC and EastEnders. You see, I’m only in my 30s, but the closest I get to a social life these days is watching repeats of Friends and panel shows.

As of writing, I last made it past my front door on 12th April 2010. That’s not a typo. I haven’t hit the wrong key. I really haven’t left the house in 9 years. The last time I reached the front gate, Gordon Brown was still Prime Minister and Kate Middleton was more than a year away from becoming Duchess of Cambridge. It’s led to an isolation that I really can’t put into words. Time just stands still.

I live alone. I don’t have much in the way of family and the only friends I have are avatar pictures and words on a screen. I discovered years ago that there’s only so many times you can cancel on people before they just stop bothering.

It wasn’t always this way. In my younger years I travelled, I had a vibrant social life, I moved across the country on a whim. A quiet night in wasn’t a phrase found in my vocabulary. But as my health deteriorated, the time between outings grew longer. Days turned into weeks, weeks into months and months into years. 9 and a half years to be exact.

Now, I’m in a cage of my own making and some days, the silence can be deafening and even on the rare occasion that someone pops in, I find that after 9 and a half years of hiding in my house, I have absolutely nothing interesting to say.

An open laptop covered in stickers

I’ve learned things about myself though and I’ve learned a lot about the people around me. It was slow at first – a glacial slide towards becoming a social recluse. My more active friends dropped off when I couldn’t keep up. I remember discovering they’d blocked me from seeing photos of their adventures on Facebook and being told it was because they didn’t want me to ‘feel bad’. They obviously meant well but when I began to spend more of my days in bed, I looked on social media as my window to the world, living vicariously through friends who’d shared the same goals as me. Being suddenly shut out of people’s lives was far worse than having to jealously scroll through photos of my friends posing at Chichén Itzá.

Most tips for tackling isolation talk about getting out there, finding groups with similar interests and slowly making friends who can understand and accommodate your circumstances. I have no doubt that works for some, but unless there’s a book club that just happens to regularly congregate on my welcome mat, that’s never going to happen. My ways of coping are much less ambitious and I owe it all to the Internet. You can argue that the internet has done irreparable damage to society, but for me it’s been a lifeline. It’s enabled me to keep in touch with the few friends who stuck around and opened me up to a world of others. I’m part of a few different online communities where I’ve met friends from all walks of life. Some I share interests with (there are fan groups online for just about everything!) Some share my disability, and others are people also stuck at home or facing isolation and loneliness in other ways.

I could never call my situation ideal, but accepting that (for now at least) my support network is ‘virtual’ and that it’s okay to call people I’ve never met in person my friends, has made a huge difference to how isolated I feel. It also means that when I really need to talk, or I’m feeling terribly alone, whatever the time, help is just a few clicks away – and I think that’s pretty great.

Have you found friends online? How often do you find yourself alone? What tips would you give to cope with loneliness and isolation?

Expedition Titan uses mixed reality to turn Saturn’s mysterious moon into a thrill rideIt's doubtful anyone alive today will get to ride through the ice volcanoes of Saturn's largest moon — but you can do the next best thing at Seattle's Pacific Science Center, thanks to a mixed-reality experience called Expedition Titan.

Retailers Wooing Holiday Shoppers Try AI On for Size

What if e-commerce retailers could use technology to replicate the role of the in-store sales associate, providing people at home with the type of personal attention that really drives sales? Technology vendors are working feverishly to make that a reality. Using artificial intelligence and voice assistants, like Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home, and Siri, online retailers are beginning to imagine a world where shoppers can ask their voice companions for recommendations on product fit or gift suggestions in specific price ranges. There may even be a time, not too far in the future, when shoppers can get personal feedback during try-ons inside their own closets, thanks to “smart” mirrors and other virtual reality technology.

Some Innovations in Gaming

While it is true that the main purpose of video games is entertainment, they have grown to be so much more. The advancement in technology that has occurred because people wanted to make more immersive and enjoyable games has opened many productive pathways for human-machine interaction. As of right now, the budget of the video game industry is on par and sometimes even more than the TV or film industry, despite being not so mainstream as the latter. Now, let us take a look at some of the examples of how some developments or events in video games aided the advancement in the real world.

Cognitive and Social Benefits

Despite people calling video games a waste of time, there has been credible research on how video games improve the social skills, and memory for people; this effect is even more beneficial for those who have some sort of limitation. Examples of this can be games improving the memory for the elderly who have Alzheimer’s disease, gaming can enable children with autism to make new friends and if you want to find the most effective way to relieve stress then games will help you in that regard. More research has found out that playing online video games improves how people work together in groups to achieve a single objective, it increases their leadership skills and how dedicated they should be to their respective roles. It helps with young adults with their everyday stress, depression and increases their empathy. Also, young girls who are fond of gaming are three times more likely to pursue a degree in the STEM fields.

Microsoft’s Adaptive Controllers

This innovative device was developed by the company with the help of an idea by a veteran gamer who had mobility problems. The development of the controller started out as a part project of two hackathons organized by Microsoft with the central focus for being something that will help gamers with disabilities. The design of the controller includes two large programmable buttons and 19 jacks that offer connectivity to various devices for gaming on either your Xbox or gaming PC. Microsoft is planning to use these adaptive controllers in rehab centers so that the elderly who have limited mobility are able to play video games again, this helps in activities that will focus on therapeutic aid and improve things like hand-eye coordination, muscle memory, and social interaction.

Detecting Alzheimer’s Disease

Sea Hero Quest is a VR game that has been designed in a way that could detect signs of Alzheimer’s Disease in players. The game has the players navigating and controlling a boat where they would have to pass it through a series of checkpoints before they could reach the final destinations. However, the memory comes into play here as the checkpoints are shown on a map that is only revealed to the player at the starting of their journey. After they have observed the points, they will have to rely on their memory of where the checkpoints could be to get through. The game was developed by people from Germany’s Deutsche Telekom, Glitchers (a game studio) and several universities across Europe. It allowed identification of early symptoms of diseases or conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s that the conventional medical tests weren’t able to detect.

Training with Virtual Reality

A major development of how training and meetings could be conducted for a business is the implementation of Virtual Reality (VR). The Oculus for Business is part of a major update designed for this purpose, it comes with a new suite that will help the employees learn and make use of VR at work. Businesses, startups, and various organizations have been keen to make use of this interactive technology because of the major advantages it offers, these include the convenience of travel, meaning that you would need to go out and drive to the office if you could just conduct a meeting from your home and another advantage is how the workers could be trained in various skills. An example of this could be with the surgeons, where VR would speed up their ability to learn procedures without taking up so many resources, other companies that use VR to train skills are Walmart and NFL.

Realistic Dildo It the Orthodox and Roman Catholic Church especially that have come down hard on Masonry. I think an active Mason is not suppose to participate in Mass. There have been several bulls or edicts condemning us. As a sexual person, you have every right to be able to safely express yourself and be able to masturbate.Also, please keep in mind that everyone masturbates differently. Because our bodies are so different, something that might feel good to one person might not feel so awesome for someone else. It's all about what feels good to you and what you enjoy.

dog dildo The Healthland blog over at Time magazine is wondering, today, if a new "Viagra condom" will encourage safer sex. No, there is no actual Viagra or generic equivalent in these new wonder condoms they are lined with a vasodilating gel, which increases blood flow to the penis and helps maintain erection. But unlike the blue pill, the CSD500 (catchy name, huh?) is not designed for men who have erectile dysfunction; rather, it's meant for men who have trouble keeping erections specifically while using a condom.. dog dildo

dog dildo The straps are pretty adjustable, though you can't slide the placement of the leg straps, you can only adjust their length. And the waistband seems like it should be two pieces instead of one so each side of the waistband would be adjustable; I like symmetry and it's hard to feel symmetrical in this harness! The O ring is stretchy, so it will fit a lot of different toys, but also seems like if something had a small flange, it might come loose, which would be really inconvenient. I have other, sturdier O rings on hand, and I changed mine out, because the O ring is attached by four individual snaps.. dog dildo

sex toys In "Blockers," Leslie Mann plays Lisa, the single mom of a high school senior named Julie (Kathryn Newton), a vivacious teenager who, as the movie opens, announces a newfound goal of losing her virginity on prom night. Julie's best friends Kayla (Geraldine Viswanathan) and Sam (Gideon Adlon) quickly warm to the plan, agreeing that, as with everything else in their lives, they'll take the leap together or at least at the same time. When Lisa spies the trio's texts on Julie's laptop, she and the other girls' dads played by John Cena and Ike Barinholtz embark on an anxiety fueled, hysterically pitched mission to scuttle the young women's plans, invading the kids' prom night like a battalion of helicopter parents humming "Ride of the Valkyries.". sex toys

Adult Toys Which may as well be pointless because that just divides the nation harder.Politically speaking Trump is dead in the water. The midterms really highlighted that. He won recover from it. It's much more open, and has always been so since the beginning. We talk much more, and have more open, frank discussions about everything, including sexual health, what we like, what might not feel so good, that we should get tested again.I am thinking condoms, used with a more mature outlook (I can't keep hating myself for one mistake for the rest of my life, even if I do regret it!) and buying EC to keep at home incase the condom splits, might be the best option vibrators, due to my concerns about infections and hormonal interferance? I also worry about the build up of hormones in my body can it really be good to take the pill for years on end? etc.He gets tested regularly due to the nature of his work (laboratory based), and I was tested in my last relationship (clear) and am going to be tested again soon. He's also going to be tested again to be sure.I'm sorry this is such a mammoth post, but I think it's important I consider the options. Adult Toys

sex toys Virginity isn't physical or medical: it's a cultural or personal idea. Different people who subscribe to the idea of virginity will tend to define it in different ways, and with any of those definitions, there may or may not be anything physically different between a person who does or does not consider themselves to be a virgin. A good doctor whose job is to be the advocate for their patient, not their patient's parent should make that clear, and also make clear that what your mother has going on is a family issue, not a doctor's.. sex toys

wholesale dildos It wouldn bother me. Why would I begrudge my mom the same kind of pleasure I frequently indulge myself in? I offered to buy her a toy on more than one occasion but she more modest and conservative than I am so she either really isn interested or just really isn interested in discussing it with me.I know she had sex because I exist, and I know she has sex with her current boyfriend because it comes up every now and then, so if I were to find out she masturbated, it wouldn surprise me at all.

Realistic Dildo All things considered, while I don't feel like this sounds like a healthy relationship to be in, if you are going to choose to stay in it vibrators, I feel his getting therapy of his own and both of you having it together, as well, needs to be an absolute requirement. I also think his acknowledging these behaviors ARE abusive and need to be changes ASAP is, too. If both those things don't happen, at best I see things continuing like this, and at worst vibrators, escalating to more or other kinds of abuse.. Realistic Dildo

dildo My problem is, my mom seems to think I her angelic, virginal teenager. (I one of five kids) She doesn know I dating or that I not a virgin. Before I go away to college, I like to come clean to her. These threats now come after we will not respond to your threats of suicide and needing me to stop your seizures, which I never saw physical documented proof you even had or took medication for. So these new claims that I'm harboring your stuff is bull. They are sex toys. dildo

dildos If you are not well, it does not mean you have to rush to the doctor immediately. A lot of information regarding minor illnesses and ailments can be found on the web. But one should not wait for things to get out of hands before consulting a doctor, as he is the one with the best advice and a proper prescription for your infirmity.. dildos

wholesale sex toys The only way I could see this working is if they introduced a whole new continent to the game were these high levels exclusively applied. So for example, the bosses and mobs would be much stronger here and you could only use high end combat equipment/potions while on this continent. When returning to the rest of the game, your 120s would have similar combat stats to 99s and the equipment/potions couldn be used (or would be set to tier 92 stats). wholesale sex toys

sex toys Why? Are we just a society full of vow breakers, who don put much integrity into our words? The statistics say one in two people will break their vows because of issues like infidelity, abuse, sex and money, however, if you look deeper, you see that those are just symptoms of a cause that was present way before the marriage, engagement, and even the dating. The real problem starts when we are single, and continues to wreak havoc as we create relationships. The real culprit? You. sex toys

gay sex toys What is the difference between war games and board games?The main difference of war gaming and board games is in the miniatures and complex conflicts able to be created. While regular board games contain a handful of pieces, war games use a literal host of miniatures and scenery to create massive battles and danger zones. Board games have only a few players but the only limit on games of this scale is how big of a table you use.. gay sex toys

wholesale vibrators I love the whole mini dress type of look it has. The red piece in the center adds to the slimming appearance. This item WAS available at Eden Fantasys in: Small, Medium, Large, 1x/2x and 3x/4x. As the intensity is increased, the vibe starts rotating in different patterns and increasing/decreasing with interesting patterns. I am much more used to vibes that simply go up and down on the intensity scale, and not with different patterns and intensity. I found it very difficult to narrow down the specific settings I enjoyed.. wholesale vibrators

dildo Niagara on the Lake is perhaps best known for the Shaw Festival, a live theater festival that runs from April through December; and if you go during that time, you have a selection of 13 plays to choose from. But even if you not into theater (or wine), there still plenty more to do.

wholesale dildos Why is this happening now?The states in question, whose legislatures are dominated by the Republican Party, have pursued years of tax cuts and cuts to public services. Teachers, parents and students have noticed the impact of budget cuts on the classroom, whether it is a four day school week in rural Oklahoma or canceled drama classes in Tulsa.

animal dildo This set is really adorable. I own the pink/yellow set and the colors are cute as hell together. They're not quite as vibrant as shown in the promo picture vibrators, but they're still pretty bright and work well together. In /r/clashroyale the person(s) responsible for the /u/clashroyale account make like a couple of comments each month, half of them being "we are working on it" while the other half consists of compliments for users artworks.Like, wtf? Supercell creates a "Dear Community, We Do Care" post, in which hundreds of people ask questions regarding the update and they simply abandoned their own post the second they published it? Like vibrators, hundreds of these questions remain unanswered while the next day "Drew" congratulates another user for his artwork.As I said, this is not supposed to be a rant in any way, but I really curious on why the "Community Manager" actually isn managing the community and why content creators such as CWA deliver more answers to open questions than Supercell does.This is especially weird considering that they closed their official Supercell forum for Clash Royale, so they can "focus" on Reddit. Can really spot the focus here thoughThe Clash Royale team has a bad habit of shutting the community out. The official Clash Royale forums were shut down about a year ago (none of the other Supercell game forums were) because one of the previous community managers preferred Reddit and never looked at the forums animal dildo.

In Fabric
Tuesday, December 3rd, 2:00 P.M.
3131 S. Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007
FREE ADMISSION. OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. RSVPs REQUIRED.

A lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband, visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown—which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path.

From acclaimed horror director Peter Strickland (the singular auteur behind the sumptuous sadomasochistic romance The Duke of Burgundy and auditory giallo-homage Berberian Sound Studio) comes a truly nightmarish film, at turns frightening, seductive, and darkly humorous. Channeling voyeuristic fantasies of high fashion and bloodshed, In Fabric is Strickland’s most twisted and brilliantly original vision yet.

Artificial intelligence is spreading into health care, often as software or a computer program capable of learning from large amounts of data and making predictions to guide care or help patients.

It already detects an eye disease tied to diabetes and does other behind-the-scenes work like helping doctors interpret MRI scans and other imaging tests for some forms of cancer.

Now, parts of the health system are starting to use it directly with patients. During some clinic and telemedicine appointments, AI-powered software asks patients initial questions about their symptoms that physicians or nurses normally pose.
And an AI program featuring a talking image of the Greek philosopher Aristotle is starting to help University of Southern California students cope with stress...

The team that developed Ellie also has put together a newer AI-based program to help students manage stress and stay healthy.

Ask Ari is making its debut at USC this semester to give students easy access to advice on dealing with loneliness, getting better sleep or handling other complications that crop up in college life.

Multi-Scale Structure Control for Advanced Functional Materials, Dec 5

 Cache   
Abstract: Economic growth demands better products; hence, better materials. Specifically, product space in energy, defense, aerospace, and automotive industries requires materials that are multi-functional, lightweight, reliable, and tough. In addition, environmental regulations require sustainability. Comprehensive optimization of these requirements is possible through multi-scale structure control in multi-material systems. In this talk, I will discuss how we can control structure from nano-to-macro-scale using additive manufacturing and solution synthesis routes. Examples from hierarchical composites and ceramics will be provided with a design perspective. The use of kHz-range vibrations in local three-dimensional structure control will be introduced. Our recent work showed that vibration-assisted fused filament fabrication (VA-FFF) technique enhanced strength, toughness, and reliability of short-fiber-reinforced composites. We also reported improved mechanical, electrical, and optical properties in polymers via quantum dots and nano-scale structure control. The mechanistic origins of the toughness and reliability increases in additively manufactured biomimetic porous materials will be detailed. I will describe machine learning and high-throughput approaches towards the discovery of new electro-active material systems for the next-generation product innovation. In addition, the discussion will include evidence-based engineering education approaches and problems. For example, sustainable innovation of better products is strongly correlated to creativity at individual level, but how can we cultivate creative engineers? I will exemplify the use of virtual reality and artificial intelligence education approaches to enhance creativity and diversity.

Die EM bleibt frei empfangbar – Telekom-TV-Chef Michael Schuld im Video-Interview.

 Cache   
TV-Taktik: Die Deutsche Telekom will bei der Europameisterschaft 2024 dem König Fußball ein digitales Krönchen aufsetzen. Auf der Bühne des Kongresses Total Video von "Horizont" gibt der neue TV-Chef Michael Schuld Einblicke in die Möglichkeiten. So kann er sich vorstellen, dass in gut vier Jahren mehr als heute Augmented und Virtual Reality zum Einsatz kommen und die Zuschauer nicht mehr nur auf großen Screens, sondern über AR-Brillen das Spiel verfolgen. Das fängt bei digital eingeblendeten Zusatzinformationen an und geht bis zu Brillen, die den TV-Screen ersetzen könnten. Eine Gefahr, dass das Fußball-Turnier im Pay-TV verschwindet, sieht Schuld nicht: "Kein Deutscher muss Angst haben, dass er die Spiele der Deutschen nicht sehen kann, oder dass die WM nicht mehr im freien Fernsehen empfangbar ist", das sei schon vom Rundfunkstaatsvertrag her nicht möglich, so Schuld. Außerdem spricht der Telekom-Manager im Bühnen-Interview über wirksame Werbung: Das müsse relevanter, guter Content sein, der unterhält und auch verkauft. An die Wirksamkeit klassischer Werbung glaubt Schuld dagegen nicht mehr. Und er erklärt die Ambitionen des Konzerns als TV-Plattform. Mit MagentaTV und seinen Eigenproduktionen will Schuld den klassischen Sendern und Streaming-Anbietern keine Konkurrenz machen, "das steht uns gar nicht zu". Viel mehr will der Dienst Sendern und VoD-Anbietern eine neutrale Plattform bieten.

[ Recent Exhibitions ]Digitized Traditional Artistry

 Cache   
  With rapid development of technology, digital culture has become an inevitable element in social, cultural, artistic, and economic dimensions. The application of “digitization” transforms the existed achievement of traditional arts through various digital technologies for the purposes of archiving or exhibiting. In recent years, art galleries, museums, and private institutions around the world have all strived for digital archiving, exhibition and promotion; regardless of formats, the interdisciplinary integration of traditional arts and contemporary digital technologies has made media technology a unique creative medium, which utilizes the interactive and participatory nature of digitalization for production, exhibition, archiving, and display. From the perspectives of technology, aesthetics, and related concepts, digital media technologies have become kinds of “visual interpretive programs.” As for how to represent the images of traditional cultural arts? In what formats? How do the chosen formats of representation connect with exhibition designs of museums? What hidden meanings are added to important information and images? When creators integrate technological images into existing formats of works, how do they give traditional cultural products deeper meanings, so that the cultural products and other elements of exhibitions fuse to create perfect proportions? These are all important topics in contemporary digital translation.
 
The combination of contemporary arts and culture and the development of digital technology brings transcending changes to the originally one-on-one relationship of artistic creation between “the creator and created.” “Re-creation” is the reinterpretation of existing works of art; in addition to manifesting the transformation of traditional cultural arts into contemporary cultural spirit, re-creation is really the self-actualizing process from perception, interpretation, to creation of art. In Taiwan, in terms of technological translation, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) has allocated significant R&D budget to focus on the execution of digital humanities projects, and achieved great results. Furthermore, in the area of cultural conservation, the MOST has also invested substantial resources to promote the conservation of works of traditional art, and strives to consolidate two major domains of culture and technology to build the foundation of social education and promotion. Thus, traditional artworks are converted through digital technology for display, archiving, and value-added utilization, bringing closer learners (viewers) and artworks in the age of technology, enhancing co-participation and social interaction, and conducting participatory “content delivery” through the expansion of interactive information. Domestic and overseas digital archiving and display, as well as means of presentation where digital technologies are applied on archived works, can be categorized into eight major types: archived works as techno-arts, online display of archived works, interactive display, augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, 3D scanning combined with 3D printing, and immersive projection. Applying different display technologies on different cultural artifacts signify the unique characteristics of diverse display technologies and applications. In light of the rapid development of digital technologies, the MOST has supported domestic innovative R&D and research projects of digital technology through research programs and digital humanities programs over the years, hoping to demonstrate the expressiveness of converting traditional culture and folk arts through contemporary technologies, and to explore the textual meaning and temporal significance of these creative practices of techno-arts through related studies.
 
Therefore, the focus of this curatorial project is on the interwoven dimensions of “research projects of the MOST” and “achievements of display technologies and applications,” in order to depict “the co-constructed and fused picture through intervention of contemporary digital technologies in traditional folk arts” under the theme of “Digitized Traditional Artistry.” In other words, this exhibition targets relative research projects funded by the MOST to focus on research outcomes and related discussions, and sets representation of “traditional folk arts” through different digital technologies as the motif to re-examine how artists in recent years have enhanced Taiwan’s contemporary digital humanities and pluralistic looks of techno-culture through research and practical-based projects.

 Cache   
Chinese regulators have announced new rules governing video and audio content online, including a ban on the publishing and distribution of "fake news" created with technologies such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality. From a report: Any use of AI or virtual reality also needs to be clearly marked in a prominent manner and failure to follow the rules could be considered a criminal offense, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) said on its website. The rules, effective Jan. 1, were published publicly on its website on Friday after being issued to online video and audio service providers last week. In particular, the CAC highlighted potential problems caused by deepfake technology, which uses AI to create hyper-realistic videos where a person appears to say or do something they did not. Deepfake technology could "endanger national security, disrupt social stability, disrupt social order and infringe upon the legitimate rights and interests of others," according to a transcript of a press briefing published on the CAC's website.

Interactive Geology Project

 Cache   
Based at the University of Colorado Boulder, the Interactive Geology Project offers visitors dozens of fascinating 3D animated videos that "illustrate basic principles of geology in entertaining and accessible ways." Several videos are highlighted on the main page, and the Video Library provides access to all of the project's content. This includes A Brief History of Colorado Through Time, a 25-minute movie showing Colorado's geologic evolution over the past 540 million years, as well as short clips showing (for example) cross-sections of various igneous intrusions and the geologic history of erosion along Colorado's Front Range. The most recent addition (as of this write-up) is a seven-minute video demonstrating their first foray into virtual reality, depicting what is now the city of Boulder at three different times near the end of the Cretaceous period. While the project's videos focus on locations in Colorado, they will be of interest to anyone curious about geologic history, and many are well-suited for classroom use. The Interactive Geology Project was founded in 2002 by Paul Weimer, a professor of geological sciences and the director of CU Boulder's Energy and Minerals Applied Research Center, and it has had an ongoing collaboration with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science since 2013.

Augmented Reality-based Visual Assisstant Tool for Climate Change Communications - visAR

 Cache   

Beskrivning

För att bättre kunna kommunicera potentiella klimatförändringar och bidra till ett hållbart samhälle, behöver konsekvenser av dessa förändringar konkretiseras för de aktörer som berörs, inklusive medborgare som kan påverkas. Försök att uppnå detta har gjorts genom användning av visuella hjälpverktyg. Dock är dagens visuella verktyg vilka presenterar klimatförändringar på global och regional skala inte tillräckliga för en effektiv, ändamålsenlig kommunikation. Nyligen genomförda studier inom området visar att det finns ett stort behov av nya visuella hjälpmedel som stödjer kommunikation av klimateffekter på lokal nivå, och inbegriper hög interaktion med den verkliga världen.

I detta projekt kommer vi att utveckla och utvärdera ett visuellt hjälpmedel som bygger på ”Augmented Reality” (AR)-teknik för att tillfredsställa nämnda behov. AR-tekniken gör det möjligt för användare att använda sin smartphone-kamera för att få en bild av det verkliga landskapet, och sedan projicera en bild/karta över t.ex. potentiell översvämning på grund av skyfall eller havsnivåhöjning på den verkliga världen, för att därigenom visualisera hur framtida klimatförändringar kan komma att påverka en viss plats. Projektet kommer att utveckla ett AR-baserat visualiserings- och stödsystem för kommunikation av klimatpåverkan (VisAR).

Det bör noteras att Augmented Reality (AR) är något annat än Virtual Reality (VR), som är ett annat mycket populärt verktyg idag. Medan AR länkar simuleringsmaterial med den verkliga världen simulerar VR händelser i en virtuell miljö som inte behöver vara verklig.

Vertyget kommer att utvecklas och utvärderas genom ett samarbete mellan GIS-Centrum, Institutionen för Naturgeografi och Ekosystemvetenskap och Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet vid Lunds universitet. Fyra kommuner, Botkyrka, Danderyd, Norrköping och Linköping, samt SMHI kommer vidare att involveras för kravanalys, design och test av verktyget. Dessa organisationer, tillsammans med gymnasieelever och medborgare, ingår i gruppen slutanvändare av verktyget, och kommer att delta i utvärderingen av produkten.

But if that still too pricey, or if playing video games on a home computer just isn your bag, 2016 is the year you really ought to take the plunge into the current generation of game consoles. Both Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One have hit their stride with deep catalogues of awesome titles, including upcoming 2016 exclusives, such as Uncharted 4: A Thief End (PS4) and Quantum Break (Xbox One.) Nintendo Wii U also has a great selection of unique games, but with rumours that a new Nintendo console could be released as early as the end of this year, it might make sense to wait for the new hardware or hold out for a price drop on the current machine.. horse dildo

Earning Your Popularity Through Social Media: Can It Truly Drive Traffic to Your Website?

 Cache   
So social media can drive traffic to a website. It's not a big secret. However, not everyone who tries this method succeeds. There are certain techniques that get lost in the excitement of a first appearance in a social media site. And therein lies the problem. With hope, strategy can get pushed in the sidelines. To find out how social media can drive traffic to a website, it's important that the nature of these sites are understood.

What are social media and how do they work?

Social media, by definition, encompasses a wide range of activities. In general, though, these are forms of communication and promotion that uses means of connection and display using different types of social groups. In the internet, these groups can include message boards, forums, blogs, video, audio, podcasts, images and wikis.

Social media can appear as blogs, e-mails, instant messaging, VoIP, vlogs and other sharing functions. They can be used for a variety of functions, such as for reference, image sharing, virtual reality, social networking and file sharing. Some examples of social media sites are Google, MySpace, Digg, Del.icio.us, Wikipedia, YouTube, Flickr and Second Life.

As you can see, social media varies and while their purposes may seem similar, no two always have the same functions. Google, for example, may be used to look for and view videos but it is still not utilized in the same manner as YouTube.

So how do social media drive traffic to a website?

There are several ways social media can drive traffic to a website. These include:

Exposure

A website that makes an appearance in social media is not guaranteed instant popularity but it has the potential to grab attention and drive traffic its way. Let's say a website selling photographic images submits one of its images to a social media site like Flickr.

Provided the image is tagged using targeted and relevant keywords and offer enough quality, it can find its own audience there. If the website owner provided a backlink to the website where the image is sourced, viewers will find their way there through the image. Using just a few strategically placed text or button links, a simple image can drive traffic to a website by getting viewed from a social media site.

Popularity

Social media are known for making superstars of websites and the personalities behind them. Just review the kind of hype people who appeared in videos through YouTube have received. By giving a website a boost and a chance to shine, social media can be used to effectively drive traffic to this site. As more people get to view it, vote for it and recommend it, a website can begin enjoying a surge in popularity. It shouldn?t be long until it starts enjoying a good number of hits.

Relevance

Another way social media can drive traffic to a website is by allowing it to appear due to relevance. Google, for example, lists websites and web pages depending on their relevance. A simple keyword search may produce numerous entries (some even reaching the millions mark), depending on the subject. Since web pages are displayed according to their importance, all a website owner has to do is to ensure that their page appears on the first page of the results list.

A semblance of reliability and respectability

Social media can be quite finicky but it can also be exclusive and protective. People will often gang up on a web page or website that doesn?t deliver on its promise. Conversely, they will also tirelessly promote a website that they like, without even getting paid for it.

Once a website receives the approval from members of a social media, it would have earned respect. Since the site will be viewed as trustworthy and dependable, it's only a matter of time before this results to a good amount of traffic, majority of whom will be a targeted audience.

Welche Entwicklung wird das Internet in 50 Jahren nehmen

 Cache   
Mehrere tausend Teilnehmer spekulieren derzeit über die Gestalt des Internets im Jahre 2069. (TRD/CID) Verglichen mit der Erfindung des Rades ist das Internet extrem jung. Und trotzdem ist das digitale Netz schon weit entwickelt. Wie mag es im Jahr 2069 aussehen? Zu dieser Frage entstehen gerade Prognosen. Jedenfalls finden derzeit Diskussionen darüber im kostenlosen Onlinekurs „Die Technologie, die die Welt veränderte – 50 Jahre Internet“ des Hasso-Plattner-Instituts (HPI) statt. Gut 5.000 Nutzer des Netzes nehmen derzeit daran teil. Im offenen Diskussionsforum des Kurses auf der IT-Lernplattform openHPI sind bereits Hunderte von interessanten Prognosen und Visionen darüber zu finden, welchen Entwicklungspfad das gerade ein halbes Jahrhundert alt gewordene Internet in den kommenden 50 Jahren nehmen dürfte. Zugang bekommt, wer sich online anmeldet unter https://open.hpi.de/courses/internetworking2019. „Die außergewöhnlich hohe Diskutierfreudigkeit bei unserer Mitmach-Aktion hängt mit der Vielzahl an kontroversen und polarisierenden Themen zusammen“, stellt Kursleiter und Institutsdirektor Prof. Christoph Meinel fest.

Nach dem Eindruck seines Teams überwiegen optimistische Sichtweisen, was die Zukunft des Internets anbetrifft. „Nicht wenige Kursteilnehmer geben aber auch ambivalente Stellungnahmen ab, also sowohl positive als auch negative“, betont der HPI-Direktor. Zu den optimistischen Voraussagen gehören Entwicklungen rund um Künstliche Intelligenz, Robotik, Befehlsausführung durch Gedankensteuerung, „Beamen“, Autonomes Fahren, Implantieren von Geräten/“Cyborgs“ und Augmented und Virtual Reality. Überwiegend in negativer Form besprochen werden laut Meinel mangelnder Datenschutz, ungenügender Schutz der Privatsphäre und...
          

Education Landscape from Brick & Mortar to Click & Mortar

 Cache   
Aindril-De

The education landscape of today and the future is “click and mortar”. It not only appeals to those born in the new millennium or Generation Z as they are fondly referred to, but it also focuses on acquiring skill sets through a virtual medium. The new generation expects educational institutions to provide knowledge through mobile digital devices, platforms and other similar channels. As technology has made it possible for educators to reach a broader spectrum of students, it can safely be predicted that the strongest educational institutions will be the ones whose brand is founded on the “brick and mortar” model with the adoption of virtual education, making them a “click and mortar” as well.

The advent of the “click and mortar” education system has brought several changes with it. These changes, which Elearning has initiated, have sparked a revolution in the way education is imparted and received. The query that comes to mind here is, “What exactly are these changes?”

Elearning has and continues to influence education in three important arenas. First, by easing access to education, Elearning gives students the luxury of learning from within the comfort of their homes by using internet-connected devices like tablets, computers, and smartphones. It is essentially self-paced.

Second, eLearning provides quality education to students. This student- centric mode of learning assures learners of updated knowledge. Online guided discussions with professors and lecturers are a hallmark of eLearning, which allows sharing of expertise where both, the teacher and the student gain simultaneously.

Thirdly, eLearning gives students access to specialized courses that may not be available locally. It enables access to education that is not readily available in certain geographic locations.

It is a fact that the brick and mortar framework is still the mainstay of our education system as there are undeniable advantages to learning in a shared physical space. However, online education is progressively gaining popularity. The autonomy and flexibility that these courses offer make them extremely popular with working professionals and students. The entire eLearning industry landscape is changing rapidly. It is characterized by emerging trends which will be more evident in the future.

Artificial intelligence is emerging as an integral part of the eLearning ecosystem. We see several AI educational solutions coming to the fore. It is predicted that AI can fill the need-gaps in learning and teaching. It is expected to broaden the purview of schools and teachers. For example, Machine Learning, which is a subsection of AI, helps in assessing the ability of the student to answer questions correctly or a student’s performance on a related topic and more.

Microlearning is another trend that is catching up quickly. It is also referred to as bite-sized learning and includes short learning nuggets of 3 to 5 minute duration, designed to meet a specific learning outcome. The accessibility of microlearning on multiple devices like smartphones, desktops, tablets, and laptops combined with their brevity makes them extremely popular in the education system.

The importance of personalized education is slowly sinking in. Personalized attention to each student becomes possible with Elearning. It offers the freedom of customizing the lesson according to the needs of the student. The learners of today want a learning experience that fits their learning speed, personal needs, preferred learning style, and their learning pathway.

With the increasing adoption of edtech in educational institutions and an influx of educational technologies, it is very likely that the future years will see further integration of technologies like Blockchain, Cloud computing, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, ICT (Integrated Co-Teaching) classrooms and Edge Computing in the field of education.

In the age bracket of 5-24 years, India has the world’s largest population of about 500 million. With the paid online subscribers in the edtech sector witnessing a massive surge from 1.6 million in 2016, to almost 6 times more in the current year, the country is set to become the second-largest market for eLearning after the US.

“Click and mortar” education has triggered the concept of blended education where students can enjoy a combination of the traditional “brick and mortar” learning with the benefits of eLearning. This is in fact a boon to the education industry with both students and teachers reaping the best of both worlds.
