Nimbits: The Open Source Internet of Things on a Distributed Cloud

Mango Automation | SCADA Software | HMI Software Argot - A language for the Internet of Things. None Project based learning is “ an instructional approach built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation. These activities are designed to answer a question or solve a problem and generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in the everyday world outside the classroom.” taken from PBL Online. Projects and activities are the keys to a better understanding of PBL. Watch this video to learn more about PBL Today however, I am sharing with you a chart Amy Mayer created and posted on her blog on the difference between doing projects and project based learning.

New supplement can repair, rejuvenate muscles in older adults -- ScienceDaily Whey protein supplements aren't just for gym buffs according to new research from McMaster University. When taken on a regular basis, a combination of these and other ingredients in a ready-to-drink formula have been found to greatly improve the physical strength of a growing cohort: senior citizens. The deterioration of muscle mass and strength that is a normal part of aging -known as sarcopenia -- can increase the risk for falls, metabolic disorders and the need for assisted living, say researchers. "Older people who do little to prevent the progression of sarcopenia drift toward a state where they find activities of daily living, like rising from a chair or ascending stairs very difficult or maybe impossible," says lead scientist Stuart Phillips, professor in the Department of Kinesiology and member of McMaster's Institute for Research on Aging. For the study, which was published in the journal PLOS ONE, the research team recruited two groups of men aged 70 and older.

OpenTSDB - A Distributed, Scalable Monitoring System Internet of Things Events IS Research Framework Many software-intensive products and systems on the market today reveal a poor level of usability despite the availability of knowledge about how to develop good usability, namely user-centred design. Improving the status of user-centred design has proved to be a challenge in product development. An effective step to start out on the road to such improvements is to carry out a current state analysis. Our research problem was to learn how to perform an effective current state analysis, i.e. an assessment, of user-centred design processes to provide a basis for improvement action. As the main part of our research, we carried out five experimental assessments in industrial settings during the years 2000 and 2001. The main result of the research is a novel assessment approach. Our theoretical examinations show that different assessment categories can be identified depending on the different foci and purposes of an assessment.

La relatività ristretta di Einstein e le trasformazioni di Lorentz Il 1905 è stato un anno molto importante per la Fisica. Esso ha visto nascere una vera e propria rivoluzione scientifica grazie alla formulazione, da parte di Albert Einstein, della cosiddetta “Teoria della Relatività (ristretta, o speciale)”. Questa teoria - che si è successivamente dimostrata rivoluzionaria - parte dalla generalizzazione delle trasformazioni di coordinate di Galileo, che in Meccanica servono per passare da un sistema di riferimento 1 (in genere fisso) a un altro (in genere mobile): le ricapitoliamo qui, inizialmente a due dimensioni, ossia nel piano cartesiano (x,y). Il calcolo delle formule sarà effettuato per semplicità a una dimensione (coinvolgendo soltanto l’asse x). Supponiamo di essere in un SR fisso Oxy, ossia in un piano cartesiano con origine in O e assi coordinati x e y. Applicazione 1Capire subito “come funzionano” le trasformazioni galileiane è importante e allo stesso tempo semplice. x′ è la coordinata di un punto qualsiasi vista nel SR mobile.

JHipster | MokaByte Introduzione Il termine “JHipster” deriva da “Java Hipster” perché il suo obiettivo iniziale era quello di utilizzare tutti gli strumenti moderni più cool con una forte attenzione sulla produttività degli sviluppatori. JHipster fornisce gli strumenti per generare un progetto con uno stack Java sul lato server basato su Spring e un front-end web evoluto sul lato client con AngularJS e Bootstrap. Che cosa è JHipster JHipster è un code generator, o meglio, un application generator usato per la creazione guidata di una moderna web application basata su Spring Boot e AngularJS. JHipster è inoltre basato sul tool di scaffolding di Yeoman e sfrutta strumenti di build di pacchetti come Gulp, NPM e Bower. Figura 1 – I principali framework e tool utilizzati da JHipster. Installazione di JHipster Le precondizioni per utilizzare JHipster sono le seguenti: utilizzare la versione 8 di Java [4]Git [5]js [6]Maven [7] Dopo avere installato questi tool bisogna lanciare da riga di comando i seguenti comandi.
