Why Americans Are the Weirdest People in the World In the Summer of 1995, a young graduate student in anthropology at UCLA named Joe Henrich traveled to Peru to carry out some fieldwork among the Machiguenga, an indigenous people who live north of Machu Picchu in the Amazon basin. The Machiguenga had traditionally been horticulturalists who lived in single-family, thatch-roofed houses in small hamlets composed of clusters of extended families. For sustenance, they relied on local game and produce from small-scale farming.
learn.knockoutjs.com In this first tutorial you'll experience some of the basics of building a web UI with the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern using knockout.js. You'll learn how to define a UI's appearance using views and declarative bindings, its data and behavior using viewmodels and observables, and how everything stays in sync automatically thanks to Knockout's dependency tracking (even with arbitrary cascading chains of data). Using bindings in the view Raspberry Pi Car Computer Step #1: Display setup for car computer PrevNext I had an Xtron car DVD player for the Ford already fitted (DVD/radio units can be found at xtrons.co.uk for a number of car manufacturers). However you don’t actually need one of these if you can place a TFT screen elsewhere. I found this 7" TFT panel on eBay for about £23 at the SainSpeed store. It can be placed in a headrest or on the dash somewhere as it comes with a stand.
UML 2 Component Diagrams: An Agile Introduction Component diagrams are particularly useful with larger teams. Your initial architectural modeling efforts during cycle 0 should focus on identifying the initial architectural landscape for your system. UML component diagrams are great for doing this as they enable you to model the high-level software components, and more importantly the interfaces to those components. 5 Ways to Make Ajax Calls with jQuery There are at least five ways to make AJAX calls with the jQuery library. For beginners, however, the differences between each can be a bit confusing. In this tutorial, we'll line them up and make a comparison. Additionally. we'll review how to inspect these AJAX calls with Firebug as well. This section is for those who have no idea what AJAX is.
the-thought-father-nobel-prizewinning-psychologist-daniel-kahneman-on-luck-9199162 The 80-year-old Israeli-American is recognised as one of the most influential thinkers alive today. His theories of dual-speed processing and heuristics are to cognitive psychology what Darwin’s theory of evolution was to biology. His talent for describing his findings in clear, illuminating language has earned him a popular following most rock bands would envy. And yet the way he tells it, this impish octagenerian sitting opposite me in the Royal Institution library, almost all of his findings were sheer chance. He was fortunate to survive an early boyhood as part of a Jewish family in occupied France, lucky too that his mother was a “talented gossip” who inspired his fascination for how very strange people are (including the SS officers patrolling their town).
The Component Model The component model illustrates the software components that will be used to build the system. These may be built up from the class model and written from scratch for the new system, or may be brought in from other projects and 3rd party vendors. Components are high level aggregations of smaller software pieces, and provide a 'black box' building block approach to software construction.
Echo Test The first section of this page will let you do an HTML5 WebSocket test against the echo server. The second section walks you through creating a WebSocket application yourself. You can also inspect WebSocket messages using your browser. Try it out This browser supports WebSocket. Getting Started with CSS Shapes For a long time, web designers have been forced to create within the constraints of the rectangle. Most content on the web is still trapped in simple boxes because most creative ventures into non-rectangular layout end in frustration. That is about to change with the introduction of CSS Shapes, available starting with Chrome 37. CSS Shapes allow web designers to wrap content around custom paths, like circles, ellipses and polygons, thus breaking free from the constraints of the rectangle. Shapes can be defined manually or they can be inferred from images. Let's look at a very simple example.
