I don't dream in numbers, but if I did, I'm pretty sure it'd look a lot like this. In Nature by Numbers , a short movie by Cristobal Vila , inspired by, well, numbers and nature, Vila animates the natural existence of Fibonacci sequences, the golden ratio, and Delaunay triangulation. Watch it. Even if you don't know what those three things are, the video will rock your socks off. Don't forget to catch shots from the process too: [via infosthetics ]
IT Forecast | Feature 5 Higher Ed Tech Trends To Watch in 2011 There's no doubt that students have become more mobile in terms of the technology they're using, and colleges seem determined to keep up with that trend. David Stoloff, a professor in Eastern Connecticut State University's education department, said the Willimantic, CT school has embraced the notion of "laptops and mobile devices in class" to the point where it's implemented interactive portfolio assessment technology to help maximize the trend.
If you want to know how old you really are, look at the media you use rather than the generation you were born into. Generational labels are important in the discussion of the changing workforce. For example, we need to understand who is pushing for change and who is criticizing change in order to understand how to create workplace bridges.
The most successful executives and business leaders challenge conventional wisdom, don't put up with BS, and certainly don't base anything important on popular myths. Neither should you. Last month, popular blogger Penelope Trunk made a case for "Why Gen Y Is Better at Your Job Than You Are."
There is much talk (chatter) about 21st century skills – even OECD is trying to define what those skills for “jobs that have not yet been created, using technologies that have not yet been invented, to solve problems that cannot be foreseen”. This statement is silly. It is my main critique with the emotional-feel-good message of Ken Robinson’s focus on creativity . First, we need to get over the view that our generation is astonishingly unique.
If you spend enough time online, it’s surprising how much most websites start to look alike. Sure, there are variations, but to a large extent, web design is pretty standardized. Swap out the graphics or color scheme and you can make almost any website look similar to almost any other website.
Some people can overcome traumatic experiences, while others are less resilient, developing psychiatric conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Why such variation? Researchers at a symposium held at the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) meeting in Amsterdam this summer tried to tease out some of the reasons.
If you're trying to break into a Windows computer—whether you've forgotten your password or are hatching a more sinster plan—you have quite a few options. Here's how to do it, and how to keep your own computer protected. There are a few methods to breaking into a computer, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Whether we like it or not, human life is subject to the universal laws of physics. My day, for example, starts with a demonstration of Newton’s First Law of Motion. It states, “Every body continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line…” “…unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it.”

How long does it take to get a new course approved? In planning for the first offering of a newly proposed course, please be aware that the review and approval of a proposal is a multi-step process that may take up to a year and is not complete until the course is officially listed in e-Campus by Enrollment Services. Complete proposals must be received 14 days in advance of the CAC/Graduate Council meetings to be assured of inclusion on the agenda. New course proposals must be fully approved by the appropriate review committee, the Senate, and the President before they can be scheduled by Enrollment Services. Approved new courses will be added to the Course Schedule up to the start of the semester in which they are to be first offered. However, if approved after the February Faculty Senate meeting, they will not appear in the subsequent URI catalog.
