Black macaque takes self-portrait: Monkey borrows photographer's camera By Daily Mail Reporter Created: 10:08 GMT, 4 July 2011 To capture the perfect wildlife image, you usually have to be in exactly the right place at precisely the right time. But in this instance, David Slater wasn’t there at all and he still got a result. Visiting a national park in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, award-winning photographer Mr Slater left his camera unattended for a while. It soon attracted the attention of an inquisitive female from a local group of crested black macaque monkeys, known for their intelligence and dexterity. Fascinated by her reflection in the lens, she then somehow managed to start the camera. Say cheese: The monkeys were intrigued by their reflection in the camera lens You can be in this one too: The monkey even snapped a shot with photographer David Slater in the frame Chimply marvellous: The images taken by the monkeys at a national park in Indonesia are perfect portraits 'The sound got his attention and he kept pressing it

Processing, JSON & The New York Times Processing is my tool of choice for building visualizations for a number of reasons. First, it’s easy to start projects, quick to piece together code and simple to share the results – it’s an ideal rapid-prototyping tool. Second, the wide variety of libraries available mean that it’s easy to plug into data in various formats and process the data into an easily-usable form. Finally, output from Processing sketches can be exported as .TIFFs, .JPGs, .PNGs, .PDFs, .MOVs and more, making the end project easy to deploy. I was reminded of all of these advantages last week when I sat down to build some simple visualizations from the newly-opened New York Times APIs. Here is the link to the source for my New York Times visualization tool: NYTimes.zip (168k) For those of you who are interested in learning a bit more, here is a step-by-step guide to getting a very simple graph visualization working with Processing and the NYT Article Search API. Step One: Set-up So, let’s review: 1. 2. 3. 4. 1. 2.

Social exclusion Social exclusion (also referred to as marginalization) is a concept used in many parts of the world to characterise contemporary forms of social disadvantage and relegation to the fringe of society. It is a term used widely in the United Kingdom and Europe, and was first utilized in France.[1] It is used across disciplines including education, sociology, psychology, politics and economics. Social exclusion refers to processes in which individuals or entire communities of people are systematically blocked from rights, opportunities and resources (e.g. housing, employment, healthcare, civic engagement, democratic participation and due process) that are normally available to members of society and which are key to social integration.[2] The resulting alienation or disenfranchisement is often connected to a person's social class, educational status, relationships in childhood[3] and living standards.

(Un)usual suspects: dans les archives de la police Des scènes de crimes, des photos de gardes à vue, des clichés de “présumé coupable”, nous en avons tous déjà vu. Dans l’imagerie collective surgissent des images de scènes de crimes morbides des portraits de suspects tirant la gueule de face et profil en tenant une plaque, des photos de presse d’accusés devant un tribunal, visage tendus, mains menottées (du moins aux Etats-Unis, comme l’a montré une récente polémique…). Dans tous les cas rien de bien joyeux ni d’artistique. C’était sans compter les archives photo de la police australienne! En effet, entre 1912 et 1964, la police de Sydney a accumulé quelques 130 000 négatifs d’une qualité et d’un esthétisme tout à fait surprenant…. Les clichés, regroupés au Justice & Police Museum, sont présentés par thème en expositions temporaires (“Les Escrocs”, “Mésaventure en voiture”…) Alors pour ceux qui n’ont pas de voyage prévu prochainement à Sydney, voici une petite promenade parmi les (présumés) criminels des années 20.

Getting Started With Generative Art Generative art as defined by Philip Galanter is, “Any art practice where the artist creates a process, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other mechanism, which is then set to motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a complete work of art.” I became a huge fan of generative art after I went to a presentation by Joshua Davis at Adobe Max. His presentation was on his new experimental work, titled “space”. It was a real treat to see how Joshua pushes himself and his work to the next level. After the workshop, I was really inspired to find as many resources as I could on creating generative art. I personally like the idea of generating art inside of Flash with some ActionScript.

Desafio de autoimagem: você é o que acredita ser? Durão ou sensível disfarçado? Brava ou tímida? Sedutor ou apenas um bom tagarela boa praça? Seja para tirar vantagem ou até mesmo por dificuldade de percepção da autoimagem, elas sempre acabam distorcendo, nem que seja um pouquinho, a visão que tem de si mesmas e isso gera certo desconforto quando alguém aponta este descompasso. Áurea explica que a autoimagem é formada de acordo com as referências que recebemos ao longo da vida e pode retratar algum trauma ou distúrbio, dependendo do caso, mas que em geral, as pessoas criam um perfil sem ter total consciência de que estão fazendo isso. "Quando a ideia que a pessoa tem de si mesma é muito distorcida, há algum problema mais sério que pode levar a distúrbios alimentares ou de personalidade, porém, na maioria dos casos são distorções normais que vão se alterando com o passar do tempo e das experiências vividas", diz a especialista.

List of gestures Gestures are a form of nonverbal communication in which visible bodily actions are used to communicate important messages, either in place of speech or together and in parallel with spoken words.[1] Gestures include movement of the hands, face, or other parts of the body. Physical non-verbal communication such as purely expressive displays, proxemics, or displays of joint attention differ from gestures, which communicate specific messages.[1] Gestures are culture-specific and can convey very different meanings in different social or cultural settings.[2] Gesture is distinct from sign language. Although some gestures, such as the ubiquitous act of pointing, differ little from one place to another, most gestures do not have invariable or universal meanings but connote specific meanings in particular cultures. This list includes links to Wikipedia pages that discuss particular gestures, as well as short descriptions of some gestures that do not have their own page. Okay sign Clinton thumb.

BallDroppings" by Josh Nimoy From the Author: BallDroppings has already been implemented in other languages, you can download it for Mac or Windows here: .. it's a musical playtoy that looks like abstract pong. My hope is that i will be able to port enough of it to Javascript, and then use a bit of Flash to manage the sound. The result will be a limited version of BallDroppings that works in the browser. I might also provide instructions on how to begin interacting. Technology:
