Reïki Why Google Plus Hangouts is the Killer App: Docs Google Plus got a bunch of new features today, many of them involving Hangouts, the video chat feature. This is not the only social network with video chat in town, but Hangouts always had some stand-out features. First of all, they can be public, so anyone can see one in their stream and join in, which is a very honest interpretation of the word "social." They also support two-way chat for up to 10 people, which can be chaotic, but often in a fun way. Today's update brought Hangouts to mobile devices, and it added "On Air" mode to allow users to broadcast to the public (once On Air opens to everyone, that is). Making Stuff Together With screensharing and a shared sketchpad, and especially with Docs, Google Plus is now a platform for making stuff together, face-to-face. Plus for the Enterprise? So, does that mean enterprise collaboration suites like Citrix or WebEx are in danger? Would you use Google Plus Hangouts for work?

13 Signs You Are Deficient In Magnesium And How To Fix It Every organ in your body, and especially your muscles and heart, needs magnesium to function properly. In fact, magnesium is involved in more than 300 biochemical processes. That’s a pretty tall order, so you definitely want to be sure you are getting all you require. But there’s a good chance you are actually deficient in magnesium. Why do I say that? The reason why most people are deficient in magnesium has a great deal to do with diet. Other reasons you could be deficient in magnesium include older age (absorption declines with age), use of certain medications (e.g., diuretics, antacids, insulin, corticosteroids, certain antibiotics), and gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohn’s disease or leaky gut.

Use Gmail, Docs, Google Calendar Offline With the Chrome App Last week Google launched the Offline Google Mail Chrome App. The app which is available for free in the Chrome Web Store will allow you to read and respond to messages in Gmail even if you don't have an Internet connection. When you get to a place where you do have an Internet connection your messages will be sent. Items in your Google Docs and Google Calendar accounts can also be viewed offline now. Unfortunately, Google still hasn't made it possible for you to create new content in those services without an Internet connection. Hopefully that will appear soon. Applications for Education When I read about the new Google Mail Chrome App I immediately thought of my students who spend close to an hour on a school bus each morning and afternoon.

Il kireji, di Hiroyuki Fukuda e Valeria Simonova-Cecon – CINQUESETTECINQUE Il kireji (切れ字), o “carattere che taglia”, si potrebbe definire uno speciale “strumento” letterario impiegato nello haiku. Un kireji è un termine che non possiede un significato vero e proprio, ma accompagna una parola, mettendola in particolare rilievo. Da un punto di vista stilistico, un kireji (usato solamente nella lingua poetica scritta e mai nel parlato) conferisce al componimento un certo tenore nobile, alto, propriamente poetico. Un kireji, posto all’interno di un verso, lo rende quasi automaticamente “gradevole” da un punto di vista letterario. Per esempio, è proprio dall’uso dei kireji che si differenziano gli haiku veri e propri dai cosiddetti bungei senryū, che a volte, sia dal punto di vista del contenuto che dello stile, possono avvicinarsi molto agli haiku. Dal punto di vista grammaticale e ritmico, un kireji crea una cesura (se si trova all’interno del verso) ossia una pausa (se posto alla fine di un verso, non tagliandolo). 松島や ああ松島や 松島や (松尾芭蕉) ah, Matsushima!
