Mini games on web for learning MindMeister Urgent Evoke - A crash course in changing the world. Mob justice - Salon “Satine,” an 18-year-old college sophomore who lives in Oregon, pretends to be a 13- to 15-year-old girl in Yahoo’s regional chat rooms. Her modus operandi: “I make up an alias on Yahoo chat. I find a picture from somewhere, usually a porn site. Many of her conversations with random guys in the chat room turn raunchy, ranging from threesomes to oral sex: “One of them liked to be a submissive, and he wanted a 14-year-old girl to be his dominatrix,” says a disgusted Satine, who says that she when she was actually 13 years old, an older friend molested her. In the chats, Satine encourages her targets to try to arrange to meet her in person for sex; she told one 20-year-old who thought she was 15 that she wanted to lose her virginity, and gushed to a 21-year-old that she was looking for “some fun” — “the kind that involves the naughty parts of my body.” sweet_as_kandy_15 (11:51:10 PM): so, what would you do with my naughty parts?
Send Google Calendar Alerts to Any Cell Phone Jonah Langlieb asked how to send Google Calendar notifications to any cell phone. The problem with a calendar on a desktop computer--even one that keeps its data in the cloud--is that you need a connected web browser to access it. A one-hour reminder that you have a 7:00 appointment won't do much good if you're away from your computer at 6:00. If you use Google Calendar and have an Android phone or tablet, this is no big deal. Syncing Google Calendar with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch isn't much trouble, either. But you can also set up Google Calendar so that it will text appointment reminders to any cellphone--smart or dumb. Here's how to set up Google Calendar for any phone: In Google Calendar, click the tool icon in the upper-right corner (if you see more than one, you want the one in the black band). To be notified by phone of a particular appointment, go that that appointment's Edit event screen. Contributing Editor Lincoln Spector writes about technology and cinema.

El juego neuroeducativo: del cogito al moveo ergo sum - VIU La palabra juego procede del latín “iocum, ludus-ludere” referida a un concepto lúdico y divertido; el juego es una actividad natural, placentera y espontánea que contribuye al desarrollo integral físico, cognitivo y socio-emocional del niño. Así, el juego estimula la creatividad y la curiosidad, el deseo de superación, la autoconfianza, ofrece oportunidades para expresar sentimientos e interiorizar normas de comportamiento social (Forés y Ligioiz, 2009), en definitiva, el juego es una necesidad filogenética (biológica) que favorece la adaptación ontogenética (evolutiva). Por ello, el período de dependencia e inmadurez en el ser humano es mucho más prolongado que en cualquier otra especie, lo que correlaciona con una mayor flexibilidad y complejidad cognitiva. En conclusión, seguramente “El error de Descartes” se produjo en una palabra, ya que en vez de cogito quiso decir moveo ergo sum, como se comprueba en el siguiente vídeo.
