New Music Video Keeps Holocaust Memories Alive - Music Three quarters of a century has passed since the German invasion of Poland began World War II. As time progresses, the number of people who can recount their personal experiences during the Holocaust grows smaller and smaller, while the number of people who deny the Holocaust continues to increase. Much of today’s youth, raised in the age of technology such as Facebook, Twitter and smart phones, has little patience for large volumes of history, yet the memories of those six million Jews who perished at the hands of Nazi murderers during World War II must be kept alive. Having recognized the challenge of keeping the Holocaust alive in today’s day and age, composer, writer and producer Cecelia Margulies has teamed up with producer and director Danny Finkelman and created "Rainbow in the Night," a new music video which brings the Holocaust to life.
Out Of The Blue Until the current period or until the last 30 years, it was conventional wisdom, both in science and theology, we're alone in the universe; a single repository of life anywhere in the known universe. Well, no one believes that anymore. Out of the Blue presents unexplained cases from around the world, investigates 50 years of official contradictions and denials, and puts forth possible reasons for secrecy. The film also examines scientific theories regarding interstellar travel and discusses the current movement for official disclosure on the subject of UFOs - a subject that has been considered by most government officials to be unworthy of serious investigation. UFOs and the Military - In 1964, former U.S. Air Force Lt. Signal Detection Theory The starting point for signal detection theory is that nearly all reasoning and decision making takes place in the presence of some uncertainty. Signal detection theory provides a precise language and graphic notation for analyzing decision making in the presence of uncertainty. The general approach of signal detection theory has direct application for us in terms of sensory experiments. But it also offers a way to analyze many different kinds of decision problems.

Iron Man - The Real Iron Man Suit For the Stan Winston Studio IRON MAN team, the biggest challenge was to create suits that retained their well-known comic book proportions while still allowing Robert Downey Jr. and his stuntmen to perform with minimal discomfort and maximum range of motion. Shane Mahan, 25 year SWS FX supervisor and co-founder of Legacy Effects said, “For Robert to be in the Mark III suit was a culmination of a great many steps because we had to take a design that is non-human in some of its proportions and fit actors and stuntmen into it.” To add to the complexity of the job, Mahan added, "We were forced to reverse-engineer the suit because we didn’t have Robert’s body cast to build the suit over joint-for-joint, measurement-for-measurement. The digital build and design of the suit was 95 percent complete before Robert was even cast in the film."

Globalization What is Globalization? Globalization means the coming together of different societies and economies via cross border flow of ideas, finances, capital, information, technologies, goods and services. The cross border assimilation can be social, economic, cultural, or political. But most of the people fear cultural and social assimilation as they believe this would have a negative impact on the existing culture of their society. Globalization therefore has mostly narrowed down to economic integration and this mainly happens through three channels; flow of finance, trade of goods and services and capital movement. Globalization is a term that includes a wide range of social and economic variations.
