October 13, 2012 Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online The power of cloaking mechanisms could eventually lead the way for developing more efficient thermoelectric devices and new kinds of electronics. MIT researchers applied the idea of harnessing the cloaking mechanisms developed to shield objects from view, to the movement of electrons. Previous work relied on metamaterials made of artificial materials with unusual properties. The composite structures used for cloaking cause light beams to bend around an object, and then meet on the other side.

Battlefield eLearning and all forms within are normally taken via your desktop computer and either hitting your company’s server with your browser or going to a hosted LMS vendor’s solution. If you wanted to work on creating content, for many people, the route would be and still is creating courses via a desktop based rapid eLearning authoring tool, or via your LMS/LCMS vendor’s tool (hosted or not) or via Dreamweaver or some other type of solution. mLearning aka Mobile Learning is enabling people in theory to take courses via the smart phone or as some vendors have the nerve to include ” cell phones – as in all-inclusive”, or in reality to use mLearning solutions to enable a collaborative or social learning platform or view documents – such as PDFs or word documents on their smart phones in some manner in which people read the docs and then follow steps.

by Maria Popova On the value of unconscious association, or why the best advice is no advice. If this is indeed the year of reading more and writing better , we’ve been right on course with David Ogilvy’s 10 no-bullshit tips , Henry Miller’s 11 commandments , and various invaluable advice from other great writers .

In 1979, a high schooler by the name of Jeff McCord started creating a game on his Commodore PET based on a Dungeons & Dragons campaign he ran previously. It was one of the first computer games to feature randomized dungeons and a “fog of war” that hid parts of the world you hadn’t visited yet, and was eventually published for the Commodore VIC-20 in 1982 as Sword of Fargoal .

The namespace strategy, as the reformation of Artificial Intelligent, as it represents the extentions of aristotelian logic manners as well by its modal values to form the modules, becomes the echos of freedoom, chooses and so many different ways of classifying link designs as a result of enduser interactions.
