Today, cryptography has moved beyond the realm of dilettantes and soldiers to become a sophisticated scientific art—combining mathematics, physics, computer science, and electrical engineering. It not only protects messages, but it also safeguards our privacy.

DRAWS Attention!!!: Art History 6th graders studied Michelangelo. Most of the students had heard of Michelangelo, well... OK, I admit, they had heard of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Students were really excited to learn that all of the Ninja turtles were named after famous artists. After discussing turtles, we were ready to talk about the artist. Before we began this project we spent one class talking about the Sistine Chapel and how Michelangelo spent 4 years painting on the ceiling. U.S. and World Maps and Puzzles - Free Maps That Teach Maps that Teach take advantage of the fact that geography is spatial. They also utilize the way kids learn best, by actively participating in their learning; learning by doing. As students assemble the maps, they build a permanent mental picture of their world. From Maps that Teach, a student will learn about the continents and where they are in relation to each other; the countries of the world, their capitals and major cultural landmarks, physical features; what is far and what is near. For the United States, students will learn the states, their capitals, major physical features, and important historic routes that established connections between parts of the country. Students need more than a rote memorization of state names and capitals in order to make U.S. geography meaningful.

Universal Everything / Radiohead – Polyfauna An experimental collaboration between Radiohead, Nigel Godrich, Stanley Donwood and Universal Everything The studio was commissioned to develop Polyfauna as a free, exploratory audiovisual app, born out of Radiohead’s The King of Limbs sessions and the sketchbooks of Stanley Donwood. Set to a lunar calendar, the mysterious, immersive app is brought to life through touch and offers a unique and different set of experiences and encounters each time it’s used. A pioneering new collision between digital art and the world of apps, the collaboration sees the creation of abstracted, expanded and exploded versions of audio and visual work by the band. Inviting the user into an immersive, expansive world of primitive life, weather, sunsets, mountains and forests, Polyfauna comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious.

March RSA Hack Hits Lockheed, Remote Systems Breached A March attack on RSA's SecurID authentication service has possibly claimed its first big victim: Lockheed Martin. According to a source speaking to Reuters, unknown hackers have broken into Lockheed Martin's security systems by using duplicate SecurID tokens to spoof legitimate authentications into the network. These SecurID tokens are analogous to Blizzard's World of Warcraft Authenticators: Tiny little keyfobs that display an ever-changing code one must enter to log into a protected service. Lockheed hasn't issued comment on alleged breach itself, leading only to speculation as to what data, if any, those breaching the company's network were able to acquire.
