Collective intelligence - Wikipedia
Types of collective intelligence Collective intelligence is shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration, collective efforts, and competition of many individuals and appears in consensus decision making. The term appears in sociobiology, political science and in context of mass peer review and crowdsourcing applications. It may involve consensus, social capital and formalisms such as voting systems, social media and other means of quantifying mass activity. Collective IQ is a measure of collective intelligence, although it is often used interchangeably with the term collective intelligence. Collective intelligence strongly contributes to the shift of knowledge and power from the individual to the collective. History[edit] Dimensions[edit] Howard Bloom has discussed mass behavior—collective behavior from the level of quarks to the level of bacterial, plant, animal, and human societies.

Going Within - The Door To Higher Consciousness - In5D Esoteric, Metaphysical, and Spiritual Database : In5D Esoteric, Metaphysical, and Spiritual Database by Michelle Walling, CHLC What does it mean to go within? This question is on the mind of most people who are awakening to the multidimensionality of this reality. Many people have different experiences but there is one similar thread that all people need to know about. The meaning of going within The term “going within” is the method by which we discover who we truly are. To go within simply means to be with yourself, to listen to yourself and your higher self, and to feel yourself by calming the mind and clearing the clutter; allowing more space for your higher thoughts to enter your being.~ Michelle Walling How do I go within? Going within has been tied to the term meditation, and while this is an excellent way of doing this, there are also other ways that may not be actually termed “meditation”. DaydreamingDriving (happens naturally but not the best time to remove your focus!) The next thing to add is intention. . As you practice this, you may or may not see things.

untitled Le changement de culture d’une Organisation est une opération complexe, multiforme qui nécessite pas mal d’énergie : en cela le terme de Transformation me va mieux et sonne plus juste. Cette transformation peut évidemment s’approcher sous différents angles… le hacking est l’un d’entre eux, une forme différente, détournée voire même virale, ultra pertinente quand il s’agit de changer, d’améliorer, ces éléments culturels du quotidien. Le syndrôme de la réunionite ! Comme vous pouvez le constater quotidiennement, la « réunion » est un symbole culturel très fort, voir même devenir une véritable passion ! Donc si vos réunions constituent de vraies sources d’insatisfaction ou sont synonymes de perte de temps, du genre : Tiens si on faisait une « petite » réunion pour régler ça ! 15 minutes en retard… c’est le ¼ d’heure bordelais (spécialité d’où je viens… !! Cette réunion va encore durer une éternité…pourvu qu’on finisse à l’heure! Hacker vos réunions ! Comment? Ce que j’ai pu observer 13 mai 2015

SOAP Characteristics[edit] SOAP can form the foundation layer of a web services protocol stack, providing a basic messaging framework upon which web services can be built. This XML-based protocol consists of three parts: an envelope, which defines what is in the message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of application-defined datatypes, and a convention for representing procedure calls and responses. SOAP has three major characteristics: extensibility (security and WS-routing are among the extensions under development), neutrality (SOAP can be used over any transport protocol such as HTTP, SMTP, TCP, UDP, or JMS), and independence (SOAP allows for any programming model). As an example of how SOAP procedures can be used, a SOAP message could be sent to a web site that has web services enabled, such as a real-estate price database, with the parameters needed for a search.

Antisocial Personality Disorder Antisocial personality disorder is best understood within the context of the broader category of personality disorders. A personality disorder is an enduring pattern of personal experience and behavior that deviates noticeably from the expectations of the individual's culture, is pervasive and inflexible, has an onset in adolescence or early adulthood, is stable over time, and leads to personal distress or impairment. Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others. The diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder is not given to individuals under the age of 18 but is given only if there is a history of some symptoms of conduct disorder before age 15. The symptoms of antisocial personality disorder can vary in severity. People with this illness may seem charming on the surface, but they are likely to be irritable and aggressive as well as irresponsible.

'Making Derry the star of the show will be a delight' By Brendan McDaid – 31 October 2012 Dermot McLaughlin spoke as he took up his new role as project director for Derry’s City of Culture year yesterday. Mr McLaughlin said he only found out he was moving back to Derry for a year-long secondment within the past few weeks. He revealed that the Strategic Investment Board in Northern Ireland had approached the chairman of the Temple Bar Cultural Trust, where he is chief executive, and asked to borrow him. It also approached the Trust’s main shareholder, Dublin City Council. He said: "It’s a big change for me. "My board and shareholders were 100% supportive and positive. Speaking about his return he said: "It is great to be back here. "This is an opportunity I would never have dreamed of having, not just to come back here but to come back in a way that is productive and relevant and helpful for my own town. "The upgrade in the physical fabric of the city is absolutely marvellous. Mr McLaughlin was born in Ernest Street in Rosemount.

Sudbury Valley School and Unschoolers: We Are Closer Than You Think — John Holt GWS The divisive nature of our culture and politics has made everything hard to discuss without falling into absolutist positions, but I was particularly disappointed when I read Dan Greenberg’s essay “Let’s Be Clear: Sudbury Valley Schools and Unschooling Have NOTHING in Common.” Greenberg writes: This essay has been prompted by a feeling of frustration that has finally led me to sit down and face an unpleasant reality: too many people think we are basically an ‘un-schooling’ institution with some sort of added twist. Greenberg’s frustration being associated with unschooling is hard for me to understand because, though unschooling is not a school and Sudbury Valley is a school, there are many common denominators in our motives and goals. I met and spoke with Dan Greenberg several times over the years and he was quite clear that he thinks homeschooling makes parents and children too dependent on each other (“When will they learn to leave mommy?”)

Ecological Cognition: A new dynamic for human-computer interaction Rating scales for depression - Wikipedia A depression rating scale is a psychiatric measuring instrument having descriptive words and phrases that indicate the severity of depression for a time period.[1] When used, an observer may make judgements and rate a person at a specified scale level with respect to identified characteristics. Rather than being used to diagnose depression, a depression rating scale may be used to assign a score to a person's behaviour where that score may be used to determine whether that person should be evaluated more thoroughly for a depressive disorder diagnosis.[1] Several rating scales are used for this purpose.[1] Scales completed by researchers[edit] Some depression rating scales are completed by researchers. For example, the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale includes 21 questions with between 3 and 5 possible responses which increase in severity. The clinician must choose the possible responses to each question by interviewing the patient and by observing the patient's symptoms. Usefulness[edit]
