Talks for when you want to look at pretty things | Playlist. Now playing You've never seen buildings like this. The stunning bamboo homes built by Elora Hardy and her team in Bali twist, curve and surprise at every turn. They defy convention because the bamboo itself is so enigmatic. No two poles of bamboo are alike, so every home, bridge and bathroom is exquisitely unique. Leo Tolstoy on Finding Meaning in a Meaningless World. By Maria Popova “For man to be able to live he must either not see the infinite, or have such an explanation of the meaning of life as will connect the finite with the infinite.” Shortly after turning fifty, Leo Tolstoy succumbed to a profound spiritual crisis.

With his greatest works behind him, he found his sense of purpose dwindling as his celebrity and public acclaim billowed, sinking into a state of deep depression and melancholia despite having a large estate, good health for his age, a wife who had born him fourteen children, and the promise of eternal literary fame. On the brink of suicide, he made one last grasp at light amidst the darkness of his existence, turning to the world’s great religious and philosophical traditions for answers to the age-old question regarding the meaning of life. He likens the progression of his depression to a serious physical illness — a parallel modern science is rendering increasingly appropriate. Frustrated, Tolstoy answers his own question:

Patent US20110090252 - Markerless augmented reality system and method using projective invariant - Google Patents. Egypt’s Quiet Social Revolution. GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Iyad al-Buzm leaned forward against his lavender desk and tried to sound reassuring. “Gaza is perfectly safe. You can walk anywhere at three in the morning,” said the spokesman for the Hamas-controlled Interior Ministry.

“There is no Islamic State in Gaza.” A few hours later on June 11, sirens went off in the Israeli city of Ashkelon, announcing the third barrage of rockets fired by Palestinian militants in less than two weeks. A group inspired by the Islamic State quickly claimed responsibility and promised more attacks. The rockets in the most recent attack fell short, but two previous rockets cleared the border and landed around Ashkelon.

None caused any damage. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has grown fond of comparing Hamas with the band of jihadis, which now controls much of Iraq and Syria. Lately, though, Hamas is fighting the Islamic State — or at least groups trying to emulate it. So far, neither side is taking the bait. Gen. ARABTERM Technical Dictionary - search. Projektmanagement-Tools | Teamwork ohne Emails – Teil 1 [Tools] | Social Media Labor. Projektmanagement-Tools | Screenshot: An der Uni Stuttgart, sowie an vielen anderen Universitäten, steht für die Studenten in den Fächern Maschinenbau, Fahrzeugtechnik, Mechatronik sowie Technologiemanagement im kommenden Semester eine Projektarbeit an.

Ziel ist es die Kernkompetenzen im wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten und die grundlegenden Erfahrungen im Projektmanagement auszubauen und zu vertiefen. Eine solche Projektarbeit zu organisieren gestaltet sich nicht immer einfach. Insbesondere für den von der Gruppe ernannten Projektleiter. Aufgaben, Projektstruktur, sowie Termine und Zeiterfassung wollen organisiert werden. Wir wollen jedoch nicht einzelne Funktionen der beiden Tools gegenüberstellen, sondern vielmehr die Möglichkeiten aufzeigen und die Funktionalität diskutieren. Dein Workspace Asana arbeitet mit einer projektorientierten Struktur, die sehr übersichtlich aufgebaut ist. Workspaces sind deine Arbeitsoberflächen und somit mit einem Ordner zur vergleichen.

Meme-Gene Coevolution. The 11 Best Psychology and Philosophy Books of 2011. By Maria Popova What it means to be human, how pronouns are secretly shaping our lives, and why we believe. After the year’s best children’s books, art and design books, photography books, science books, history books, and food books, the 2011 best-of series continues with the most compelling, provocative and thought-provoking psychology and philosophy books featured here this year. We spend most of our lives going around believing we are rational, logical beings who make carefully weighted decisions based on objective facts in stable circumstances.

Of course, as both a growing body of research and our own retrospective experience demonstrate, this couldn’t be further from the truth. For the past three years, David McRaney’s cheekily titled yet infinitely intelligent You Are Not So Smart has been one of my favorite smart blogs, tirelessly debunking the many ways in which our minds play tricks on us and the false interpretations we have of those trickeries. Originally featured in November.


Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Notes on overcoming loneliness: Make fewer ‘friends’ Ten years ago we’d never heard of names like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp. And yet today, for many, they are modern pillars of daily communication. Social media has become an omnipresent host to our daily interactions with 72% of all internet users now active on some form of social media. We have an array of social media outlets to suit every kind of action, personality type and human expression- both newsworthy and banal – and our engagement online is increasingly unwavering; we send around 500 million tweets per day and spend on average around 15 hours and 33 minutes a month on Facebook, for example.

Social media has revolutionised the way we disseminate and receive information. According to The Mental Health Foundation in their report 2010 The Lonely Society, 1 in 10 people in the UK often experience loneliness. It is not surprising, then, that the same Mental Health Foundation report found that, 48% of us believe that people are becoming increasing lonelier. Comments.
