Line segments in the golden ratio In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities.

The figure on the right illustrates the geometric relationship. Expressed algebraically, for quantities a and b with a > b > 0, The golden ratio is also called the golden section (Latin: sectio aurea) or golden mean.[1][2][3] Other names include extreme and mean ratio,[4] medial section, divine proportion, divine section (Latin: sectio divina), golden proportion, golden cut,[5] and golden number.[6][7][8] Some twentieth-century artists and architects, including Le Corbusier and Dalí, have proportioned their works to approximate the golden ratio—especially in the form of the golden rectangle, in which the ratio of the longer side to the shorter is the golden ratio—believing this proportion to be aesthetically pleasing (see Applications and observations below). Calculation Therefore, Multiplying by φ gives and History.

Seeing the sounds of the sea - Image 1. 12:07 01 February 2010 The songs of whales and dolphins can be beautiful to the ear. Now acoustics engineer Mark Fischer has created a way to make them visually pleasing too. What's more, his technique captures more information about the sound than traditional ways of visualising whalesong.

Image 1 of 10 Humpback whale call This is Fischer's representation of the low-frequency moans and cries of a humpback whale's mating song, with the time axis running anticlockwise. The sound for this graph was recorded in Hawaii.

The artist whose work now gets a canvas Rembrandt could never have imagined is a substitute teacher from Allentown, Pa., who has made art for over 30 years but never had the backing of a major museum or gallery. Her creation will loom over Times Square because she won an online contest in which users of a Web site gave her more votes than 35,000 competitors. The site,, is not a charity but a business, one that hopes to make a profit identifying artistic talent and connecting it to an audience.

Investors are pouring millions into it and similar start-ups and social networks like and, which cater to the growing cadre of people who consider themselves creative and think there’s a market for their work outside the network of galleries and dealers who dominate the commerce in art and design.

Users and founders of these sites talk not only about making money but also about democratizing culture. Artists Wanted also has deep cultural connections. 10 Steps To Designing An Amazing Infographic. Information can be useful—and even beautiful—but only when it’s presented well. In an age of information overload, any guidance through the clutter comes as a welcome relief. That’s one reason for the recent popularity of information graphics. Infographics are visual designs that help to explain complicated data in a simple way (mental-health emergencies at Burning Man, anyone?).

But how are they created? What can we learn from the designer’s process? Over the last decade, Hyperakt has come to specialize in this type of design, and we’ve found a process that works for us. 1. Sifting through data is where it all begins. 2. While it’s tempting to read only the highlighted facts and skim the rest, this shortcut tends to result in more time wasted later. 3. What starts as boring data will become a boring infographic unless a great story can be found. 4. As a story emerges from the data at hand, it’s time to stop for a reality check. The truth in information takes experience to uncover. 5. Our Future Mobility Now. Software Downloads. Bell Labs offers several software applications for download and use under limited license.

IBM's Big Data Challenge: A Telescope That Generates More Data Than the Whole Internet. There's a massive telescope on the drawing board that hasn't even started construction yet, but when it's finished in 2024, it'll generate more data in a single day than the entire Internet. For scientists to ensure they'll be able to handle all that raw information, they need to start working on new computing technologies now. Fortunately, IBM is on it. The computing giant is collaborating with ASTRON (the Netherlands Institute of Radio Astronomy) to develop the next-generation computer tech needed to handle the colossal amount of data captured by the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), a new radio telescope that will spread sensing equipment over a span 3,000 kilometers wide, or about the width of the continental U.S.A.

"One of the goals is to search what happened at the time of the Big Bang, 13 billion years ago," IBM researcher Ronanld Luijten told Mashable. "We need to figure out what technology needs to be chosen in order to build this large antenna. " Science. Xerox NoteTaker. El Xerox NoteTaker probablemente fue la primera computadora portable. Se desarrolló en el Xerox PARC de Palo Alto, California, en 1976.

Aunque sólo se construyeron diez prototipos y nunca entró en producción, como otros inventos de ese laboratorio, tuvo una gran influencia en el diseño del Osborne 1 (el primer portable comercial) y el Compaq Portable (la primera computadora compatible IBM PC y también la primera computadora personal portable). El NoteTaker fue desarrollado por un equipo que incluía a Adele Goldberg, Douglas Fairbairn, y Larry Tesler. Se vio muy influenciado por las investigación previa de Alan Kay, que previamente desarrolló el proyecto Dynabook. Mientras que el Dynabook era un concepto de ordenador transportable imposible de implementar con la tecnología existente entonces, el NoteTaker fue pensado para para demostrar que podía hacerse.

Xerox PARC. Entrada del edificio del Xerox PARC en Palo Alto (California). Xerox PARC (Palo Alto Research Center, ‘centro de investigación de Palo Alto’) es una empresa de investigación y desarrollo, propiedad de Xerox Corporation. Con sede en Palo Alto (California, EE.UU.), fue fundado en 1970 inicialmente como una división de investigación. Desde entonces ha sido reconocida mundialmente por sus contribuciones e importantes desarrollos en la industria del hardware y software, siendo el creador de algunos de los estándares actuales más comúnmente usados. En su momento, Xerox llegó a invertir más de 100 millones de dólares en diversos proyectos que aunque no llegaran a rentabilizar sus esfuerzos en algunos de sus productos, se convirtieron en la principal fuente de inspiración de las nuevas tecnologías de los años setenta y buena parte de los ochenta. Xerox formó El Palo Alto Research Center Incorporated como una subsidiaria de propiedad total en 2002.

Ficod cuenta con una artista conceptual que resume en imágenes el contenido de cada una de las sesiones plenarias. Dibujar ya no es cosa de niños. Los dibujos permiten solucionar muchos problemas del mundo business o grabar mejor los conceptos de ponencias, presentaciones o reuniones de negocios. Este último punto es el que está teniendo su demostración práctica en Ficod. En la feria de contenidos digitales que hoy termina en Madrid no todo el mundo pinta… aunque los dibujos de una persona sirven para todos. Heather Willems, una artista neoyorkina, se sitúa en una esquina del escenario de cada una de las sesiones plenarias de Ficod para ir creando en una inmensa pizarra blanca un compendio de imágenes que sintentizan lo que el ponente está intentando transmitir.

Miembro del Foro Económico Mundial, dirige programas de investigación y educación, y es consultor de diversos gobiernos. Su idea fundamental es que a pesar de la crisis hay espacio para el optimismo. "En todos los rincones del mundo y en todos los sectores, un nuevo modelo de innovación económica y social está arrasando.

La gente con dinamismo, pasión y pericia toma ventaja de las nuevas herramientas web". Esto no es sólo una crisis económica, estamos ante unmomento de cambio histórico: la era industrial y todas sus instituciones se han quedado sin energía. ¿No salva nada? Periódicos, universidades, corporaciones, gobiernos, educación, sistemas de salud, red de energías..., todo está basado en modelos de la era industrial, y están fallando. Ha habido otras crisis. Y todas nuestras instituciones están todavía en el modelo industrial... Ya. Analytics. By Rick Singer Ever since Augusta National Golf Club hosted its first Invitational event in 1934, a commitment to history and tradition has permeated the fabric of the Masters Tournament, which begins play this week. While the Masters has delivered many thrilling, magical moments among the Georgia pines of the Augusta National golf course, many people may not be aware of the Tournament’s unwavering dedication to enriching the game of golf.

From playing 18 holes on each of the Tournament’s four days — instead of 36 holes on the third and final day, which was the standard 80 years ago — to introducing the first cumulative over/under scoring method, the Masters has consistently established innovative practices that became and remain standards in the sport.

Big Society Network | unleashing social energy. Big Society. The Big Society was the flagship policy idea of the 2010 UK Conservative Party general election manifesto. It now forms part of the legislative programme of the Conservative – Liberal Democrat Coalition Agreement.[1] The stated aim is to create a climate that empowers local people and communities, building a "big society" that will take power away from politicians and give it to people.[2] While some have responded to the policy favourably, its aims have been queried and disputed by other commentators.

The Big Society concept applies to domestic policy in England only. These policy areas are devolved in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and are therefore the responsibilities of respectively the Northern Ireland Executive, the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government in those countries. Background[edit] It is supported by a Big Society Network, which says it "exists to generate, develop and showcase new ideas to help people to come together in their neighbourhoods to do good things.
