In the 1960s, a group of women agreed to undergo the same gruelling tests as the seven male astronauts taking part in Project Mercury. All seasoned pilots with at least a thousand hours of flight experience, they were subjected to several invasive procedures, such as having to swallow a rubber tube so that their stomach acid could be tested, or having their inner ear frozen by iced water to see how they coped with vertigo. Thirteen of the women passed the first phase of testing, three passed the next phase and one, Geraldyn "Jerrie" Cobb, passed Phase III. Yet, despite their sacrifices, none ever went into space. Indeed, it wasn't until Sally Ride flew on a Space Shuttle mission in 1983 that an American woman went into space, 22 years after Alan Shepard became the first American man, and the second man ever, to make that trip in 1963.

Who, what, where, why, when and how are the fundamental questions that journalists are taught to ask when they collect information for a story.When you design and publish infographics, you in essence assume the role of a brand journalist. The following are some questions that can help you synthesize your ideas, taken from the book, The Power of Infographics: Using Pictures to Communicate and Connect with your Audiences , by Mark Smiciklas . Who • Who is the audience for your infographic? As you are distilling your thoughts, keep asking yourself who you are designing the infographic for. The culture of the sector or the general persona of the individuals consuming your content will influencethe type of information you need to visualize or the tone of the infographic.
In ye olden days, you had to routinely dial for assistance in finding the phone number or other information about someone you’re looking to reach. You had to pay bills at your post office, use public telephones, print photographs, and use travel agents. The times, they are a-changing. A lot has changed in the past few decades as you can see in the below infographic!
There were a few strange things about the event I attended in a classroom at the San Francisco branch of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School . Instead of students, the room was filled with Cisco executives, professors, and journalists. There were cameras trained on us from all angles. But most noticeably, the man speaking to us in the front of the room wasn’t really there.
Dmitri Leonov is vice president of growth at Sanebox . Follow him at @dmitri . If you’re like most people with a connection to the internet and a job that requires you interact via email , then you probably know what email hell feels like. The only good news is that you’re not alone.
Email is still the foundation of modern business communication and we use it all day, very day (even weekends and evenings for some). While some are lamenting its use and hailing its demise, the rest of us still use it because everyone we deal with still uses it. And it’s getting worse – we ask our students (the future generations of business leaders?) to use it as their main form of communication too.
The Gmail+1"hack" isn't a new trick and I can't remember when I first tried it, but it still works and it still provides a solution to a problem that a lot of teachers run into when they want their students to use a new web tool. Let's say there's a new service that I want my students to use but my students don't have email addresses that they can use to register for that service. In that case I can quickly generate Gmail addresses for my students by using the Gmail+1 hack. Here's how the Gmail+1 hack works: 1.
Cellphone Use Linked to Selfish Behavior in Smith Marketing Study Though cellphones are usually considered devices that connect people, they may make users less socially minded, finds a recent study from the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business. Marketing professors Anastasiya Pocheptsova and Rosellina Ferraro , with graduate student, Ajay T. Abraham, conducted a series of experiments on test groups of cellphone users.
I had a quick count-up. I’ve got about 40 or 50 username/password combos in my private life (and still more for my work, which thankfully uses a secure password system. Phew.) So when I recently learned that 40% of us would rather scrub a toilet than change a password , whilst I concede that it may depend on the state of the toilet , I’d go along with that.
When the Internet was small and young, file formats were pretty much limited to image types and media file types that the browsers of the time could handle. At the very beginning, text was almost exclusively meant to be presented on the Internet in HTML format, or provided as a file download via FTP protocol. Pictures were JPG or GIF across the board, and sound files were these strangely embedded WAV files and those pathetic electronic MIDI files. The world has moved on, and with it, there are now awesome file formats that are available to you, depending on the purpose that you have for those files.
Detailed images for your screen is never too much. Sometimes the extra pixels could bring unknown happiness to some desktop user. While a dual monitor setup for your workplace maybe critical for productivity or a necessity to most developers and designers alike, there is no harm in dressing up your screen for a dose of inspiration to make your work day a great one. Just take a look at this Dubai city view and imagine your dual screen setup being dressed up with such an astounding wallpaper. Kinda feels like a real cool window view from a high-rise office when you think about it.
