How curiosity changes our brains Participants in the study were asked to rate how curious they were to find out the answer to a specific trivia question, such as: “What does the term ‘dinosaur’ actually mean?” The participants were then placed in an MRI machine that measures brain activity, based on changes in blood flow when the brain is performing certain tasks. The participants saw the trivia question again followed by the image of a person’s face and were asked to make a specific decision about the person. Finally, they were shown the answer to the trivia question, in the dinosaur case “terrible lizard.” After the MRI scan the participants completed a surprise test on the answers to the trivia questions and also on their ability to recognize the faces shown during the scan.

Psychedelic sixties The White Rabbit in Wonderland (East Totem West, 1967) Art By Joe McHugh Nick Mason David Gilmour Richard Wright The Doors/Jim Kweskin Jug Band, June 9 & 10, 1967 - Fillmore Auditorium Art by Bonnie MacLean. Rosemary’s Baby (1968) Ex-Apple engineers write a killer app for artists that turns iPad into a professional graphics tablet Former Apple engineers Matt Ronge and Giovanni Donelli have created an absolutely amazing software solution called Astropad which magically turns your iPad into a professional graphics tablet for your Mac. The iOS application talks to the Mac client via Wi-Fi or USB which then translates your stylus strokes on the tablet into corresponding actions in virtually any Mac app such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Pixelmator and many more. Drawing on your Mac with your iPad works with most pressure sensitive styluses on the market. Your stylus strokes are transferred to the Mac in a silky-smooth sixty frames per second, thanks to a proprietary technology called Liquid that provides nearly three times more fluid responsiveness than Apple’s AirPlay. “For the first 6 months of development we had no idea whether we could build the technology to allow the level of image quality and performance suitable for the most demanding artists and designers,” developers said. But they’ve delivered.

Creative Commons Resources for Classroom Teachers Posted by Bill Ferriter on Sunday, 09/08/2013 If your students are using images, video, or music in the final products that they are producing for your class, then it is INCREDIBLY important that you introduce them to the Creative Commons -- an organization that is helping to redefine copyright laws. With a self-described goal to "save the world from failed sharing," the Creative Commons organization has developed a set of licenses that content creators can use when sharing the work. While every Creative Commons license requires that attribution to be given to the original owner of a piece of content, every license also details the ways that content can be used by others WITHOUT having to ask for permission in advance. That makes Creative Commons content perfect for use in classroom projects. Students can find engaging images, videos and music clips to enhance their work AND respect the ownership rights of content creators all at the same time.
