The Power of Belief - Mindset and Success: Eduardo Briceno at TEDxManhattanBeach | TED-Ed Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports.

Put Down the iPhone and Pickup an ONDU Wooden Pinhole Camera Through his brand ONDU , woodworker Elvis Halilović has been making lensless pinhole cameras for over seven years along with a wide variety of ceramic and structural objects, including kits for geodesic domes . This week the Slovenian designer unveiled a beautifully designed series of pinhole cameras made from wood and held together in part by strong magnets. Forget your camera phone, filters, and “likes,” these tough little lensless film cameras are old school and completely manual, relying on direct exposure of light to film. The cameras come in six different dimensions and film sizes, from the more common Leica 135 format to a 4″ x 5″ film holder camera, and looking at the examples above they really do seem capable of making some beautiful photos. You can learn more over on Kickstarter . (via THEmag )

About CC0 — “No Rights Reserved” CC0 enables scientists, educators, artists and other creators and owners of copyright- or database-protected content to waive those interests in their works and thereby place them as completely as possible in the public domain, so that others may freely build upon, enhance and reuse the works for any purposes without restriction under copyright or database law. In contrast to CC’s licenses that allow copyright holders to choose from a range of permissions while retaining their copyright, CC0 empowers yet another choice altogether – the choice to opt out of copyright and database protection, and the exclusive rights automatically granted to creators – the “no rights reserved” alternative to our licenses. The Problem Dedicating works to the public domain is difficult if not impossible for those wanting to contribute their works for public use before applicable copyright or database protection terms expire. Few if any jurisdictions have a process for doing so easily and reliably. A Solution

El paso del peatón Gustavo MADRID --- Subir y bajar Las ciudades mexicanas contemporáneas se han construido desde la base de la emergencia y no desde la planeación, la reflexión y la conciencia. Este modelo que ha dado lugar a la construcción de urbes que muchas veces superan cualquier lógica y fuerzan a las personas a aplicar razonamientos difíciles de replicar a la hora de tratar de entenderlas. Podemos observar de la Ciudad de México, por años y hasta hoy paradigma de la vida urbana y la planeación de ciudades del país. Y con esto quiero decir que todo lo que allí se hace se replica sí o sí en otros lugares sin un razonamiento reflexivo desde lo local. Uno de los ejemplos que mejor podemos utilizar para denotar esta realidad es el de los mecanismos con que cuentan los peatones para atravesar los llamados ejes viales que organizan el espacio de esa urbe. Quienes habitan las urbes e intentan desplazarse de un lado a otro se ven sometidos a un nivel de estrés tanto emocional como físico.

Wikimedia Commons 7 trampas sociales poco éticas que deberías conocer Soy de los que opinan que el conocimiento es poder, y que hay que denunciar las malas prácticas para que se popularicen y pierdan efectividad, llegando a oídos de la mayoría (sobre todo los inexpertos, los más vulnerables), haciendo posible su identificación y prevenirse ante tales estrategias. Lo que cito a continuación es una subjetiva lista de trucos «sucios» utilizados en Internet para promocionarse y que, en mayor o menor medida, me han llegado a parecer poco éticos por algún motivo. Quiero que quede claro que no se trata de un ranking de las más comunes, ni son las únicas que existen. 1.

NoJPEG Por qué NO DEBES USAR JPEG para tu logo. ¿Alguna vez te preguntaste por qué los diseñadores siempre preguntan por un archivo .EPS? Para avanzar puedes usar las → flechas de tu teclado o las pequeñas flechas azules en la esquina inferior derecha. Česky, Português, Português Brasileiro, Italiano, English, Francais, Galego, Català, Nederlands, Русский, Türkçe. Entonces, tenemos un logo… Y es un archivo en formato JPEG. Por lo tanto, tiene un fondo blanco incorporado. Y eso no es para nada cool. NO queremos un fondo blanco. Porque… ¿Y si queremos usar nuestro logo en un fondo de color? Sí, estamos atorados con ese fondo blanco. ¿Qué pasa si utilizamos un archivo .EPS? ¡Na-da! ¡Pero espera! ¿Qué pasa si agrandamos un archivo JPEG? ¡Se vuelve borroso y horrible! ¿Y si agrandamos un archivo .EPS? ¡Na-da!
