The Code / Fundamental Pattern - Nature appears to rely on one core recurring pattern to evolve life at every scale What are some of the ways knowledge of the pattern is being applied? Fan and Propeller Technologies Pax Scientific has patented the application of the phi spiral for translating “nature's flow efficiencies into streamlined design geometries.” The result is more efficient and effective technologies such as fans, turbines, pumps, and more. A small phi-design propeller is able to circulate a million gallon water storage tank in the form of a torus. “New Energy” Devices Many “New Energy” technologies are based on the pattern – they mimic the torus in order to tap energy from the space around us. Philosophy Ashok Gangadean uses the torus to blend the philosophies of East and West, transcending the old worldview where we are all just isolated entities. Non-violent Self Defense The non-violent martial art of Aikido is a philosophy with a physical expression. Aikido means “the way of harmony with life energy.” “Aikido is not a technique to fight and defeat an enemy. Evolve -

Virtual tours - ::. :: photos panoramiques .::       Web-Based Geographical Information System (GIS) for Tourism in Oyo State, Nigeria Tourism is defined by the World Tourism Organization (NSCB, 2004), as the act of traveling for the purpose of recreation and the provision of services for this act. It further explained that a tourist is someone who travels at least eighty kilometers (fifty miles) from home for the purpose of recreation. To a lay-man, tourism could just be the act of visiting other places for the purpose of sight seeing and enjoyment but the activities of tourism are more than that. In another term, Tourism is said to be the activities of people traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes related to the exercise of an activity remunerated from within the place visited. As a service based industry, tourism consists of a number of tangible and intangible elements or components. The climate in Oyo state is equatorial notably with dry and wet seasons with relatively high humidity.

Cosmic Law - The Great Law of Nothingness This familiar symbol for Sunyata was made with a single brush stroke by the old zen master Shibayama. It represents a perfect circle, perfection, that is, within the limitations of the always imperfect material world. It conveys the sense of some-thing emanating from no-thing-ness. It represents the vagina, the gateway of birth into manifestation, and also the first moment of the creation of the universe, the big bang, when every thing emerged from the unformed vacuum point. A popular song a few years ago has the phrase, “Nothing comes from Nothing, Nothing ever will.” Notice that it is the successes in life that most of all need to be erased. Every night we go to sleep, we dream a little, and wake up to a new day, fresh and renewed. Religions are born in the desert where there are no distractions. Robert Frost has a line, “Home is the place where they have to take you in.” This empty place is called in the Sanskrit wisdom texts Nirvana and Sunyata.

Jellyfish | Florida | photos Sharks | Jellyfish | Stingrays | Rip Currents Lightning | Red tide | Water Quality | Gulf Water temperatures Sea Lice | General beach safety Moon Jellyfish Cannonball Jellyfish (aka Cabbagehead) Portuguese Man-of-War Sea Nettle Jellyfish Blue button jellyfish Mushroom cap jellyfish Mauve Stinger (Purple Jellyfish) Box Jellyfish Mesoglea (jellyfish tissue) Jellyfish are common in Florida, but they are not everywhere all of the time. Sometimes, in some locations, a large mass of jellyfish will “invade” the beach. Two jellyfish in particular, the Portuguese Man of War, and the box jellyfish (both pictured above) can give a very painful sting. Many jellyfish have tentacles that trail down from their bodies into the water. Some jellyfish have very weak venom, others have extremely potent venom, which upon sufficient exposure, can result in the death of a human. I am not a jellyfish identification expert and I’m sure you aren’t either, so I recommend that you avoid touching jellyfish.

MayaArch3D A web-based 3D GIS for archaeological research The MayaArch3D Project has built a virtual research environment for the documentation and analysis of complex archaeological sites —specifically, it is a web-based, 3D-GIS that can integrate 3D models of cities, landscapes, and objects with associated, geo-referenced archaeological data. An international, interdisciplinary project This international, interdisciplinary project brings together archaeologists, art historians, and cultural resource managers with experts in geosciences, remote sensing, photogrammetry, 3D modeling, and virtual reality from various institutions in Germany, the US, Italy, and Honduras. Case Study: UNESCO World Heritage site and ancient Maya city of Copan, Honduras The digital collections used to demonstrate the system contain basic information for other ancient Maya cities in Central America, but focus on the archaeology of Honduras and specifically Copan.

16 visites virtuelles de lieux historiques en France (en 3D, 360 degrés) Quels sont les monuments français qui proposent des visites 3D ou 360 degrés ? Le blog de la médiathèque du CDDP de l’Oise dresse une liste de 16 lieux français patrimoniaux à visiter via son ordinateur (voire via un outil connecté mobile) qui offrent ainsi une découverte inédite de monuments, architectures, châteaux, vallées, musées, endroits de batailles, églises et musées reconstitués sous une forme virtuelle avec légendes, apports textuels mais également audio/sonores. On retrouve ainsi des liens directs vers les visites virtuelles de la Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-Paris, la Tour Eiffel, la Grotte de Lascaux, le Château de Versailles, la Ville de Saint-Denis, le Débarquement d’Arromanches… Tous ces projets ont un point commun : ils sont issus de l’Etat, de collectivités territoriales ou d’institutions publiques.
