Save Time and Money With Mobile Devices By Rieva Lesonsky Are you looking for a way to save time, save money and increase productivity at your small business? If so, look no further than your local cellular store, where buying a smartphone and/or tablet could be the fastest way to pump up your business volume. A new survey, the 2014 AT&T-SBE Council Small Business Technology Poll, reports small business owners who use smartphones are saving a collective 1.24 billion hours and $32.3 billion annually. Tablets save entrepreneurs some 754.2 million hours and $19.6 billion a year. Here’s some more of what the survey found: A whopping 94 percent of small business owners use smartphones to conduct business, up from 85 percent last year. More than half of small business owners use mobile applications for business. Tablets are not yet as ubiquitous in business as smartphones, but they have a lot of customer-facing uses. How can mobile devices help your small business?

eBay Bidder Buys 4chan Screenshot, as Art, for $90,000 A screenshot of said screenshot. CNET reports that an eBay customer has bid $90,900 for a screenshot of a post on 4chan. Titled Artwork by Anonymous, the work features a user’s musings on the value of art. “Art used to be something to cherish,” they lament. “Now literally anything could be art. To some, nearly $100,000 might seem like a lot to pay for the screenshot, which was free to take, is easy to duplicate and doesn’t really say anything Marcel Duchamp didn’t already say.

Pantz Woodstock Earth Blog The Patch is created in the gyre of the North Pacific Subtropical Convergence Zone Graphic courtesy of Wikipedia Seven eighths of our planet is covered by water. When you look into an ocean from the shore or from the deck of a ship, particularly in bad weather, you can’t help feeling overwhelmed by its omnipotent, omnipresent, and infinite nature. But now with the introduction of plastic in the 1940’s and 50’s and the massive proliferation of plastics in the 60’s and 70’s, (the genesis of our throwaway disposable plastic society), still increasing today, all of this has changed, in that much of the plastic floats, and will virtually never biodegrade, Just as tar balls from oil spills and pumice from volcanic eruptions are lighter than water and have floated to every corner of the world’s oceans, so too has much of our plastic waste. The north Pacific Garbage Patch and the other four major Gyres on a continuous ocean map Plastics are cheap and convenient man-made polymers.

The real cyborgs - in-depth feature about people merging with machines Ian Burkhart concentrated hard. A thick cable protruded from the crown of his shaven head. A sleeve sprouting wires enveloped his right arm. The 23 - year-old had been paralysed from the neck down since a diving accident four years ago. At first it opened slowly and shakily, as though uncertain who its owner was. The technology that made this possible, Neurobridge, had successfully reconnected Burkhart’s brain with his body. But such milestones are coming thick and fast. A growing cadre of innovators is taking things further, using replacement organs, robotic prosthetics and implants not to restore bodily functions but to alter or enhance them. “This is the frontline of the Human Enhancement Revolution,” wrote the technology author and philosopher Patrick Lin last year. The US military is pouring millions of dollars into projects such as Ekso Bionics’ Human Universal Load Carrier (HULC), an ‘Iron Man’-style wearable exoskeleton that gives soldiers superhuman strength.

Harry Pointer During the 1870s, the Brighton photographer Harry Pointer (1822-1889) became well known for a series of carte-de-visite photographs which featured his pet cats. Pointer began by taking conventional photographs of cats resting, drinking milk or sleeping in a basket, but from around 1870 he specialised in photographing cats in a variety of poses, placing his cats in settings that would create a humorous or appealing picture. Pointer often arranged his cats in unusual poses that mimicked human activities - a cat riding a tricycle, cats roller-skating and even a cat taking a photograph with a camera. Harry Pointer soon realised that even a relatively straight-forward cat photograph could be turned into an amusing or appealing image by adding a written caption. Pointer increased the commercial potential of his cat pictures by adding a written greeting such as "A Happy New Year" or "Very many happy returns of the day". [PHOTO : Courtesy of Philippe Garner]

Θουκυδίδης Το έργο του άσκησε μεγάλη επιρροή σε ιστορικούς και μελετάται ως σήμερα από πολιτικούς επιστήμονες, καθώς θεωρείται ο πατέρας του πολιτικού ρεαλισμού ως προσέγγισης στη μελέτη των διεθνών σχέσεων.[1] Η ζωή του[Επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα] Ο Θουκυδίδης ήταν περίπου 25-30 ετών στην αρχή του Πελοποννησιακού Πολέμου (431 π.Χ.). Αρρώστησε και ο ίδιος κατά τον λοιμό που έπληξε την Αθήνα μεταξύ 430 και 427 π.Χ. εξοντώνοντας το ένα τέταρτο του πληθυσμού της, μεταξύ αυτών και τον Περικλή. Το 424 π.Χ. εκλέχθηκε στρατηγός και ανέλαβε τη διοίκηση επτά πλοίων που αγκυροβολούσαν στη Θάσο, πιθανότατα λόγω των διασυνδέσεών του στην περιοχή. Κατά το χειμώνα του 424/3 π.Χ. ο Σπαρτιάτης στρατηγός Βρασίδας επιτέθηκε στην Αμφίπολη, μια παραλιακή πόλη της Μακεδονίας στα δυτικά της Θάσου, στρατηγικής σημασίας για την Αθηναϊκή Συμμαχία, λόγω της ναυπηγήσιμης ξυλείας που πρόσφερε η περιοχή και επειδή βρισκόταν κοντά στα χρυσωρυχεία του Παγγαίου.

Play Him Off, Keyboard Cat! Petit illustre des cliches hollywoodiens !!! Le petit illustré nouveau est arrivé !!!L’actualité fait que bon, ce n’est pas le principal truc auquel j’ai pensé ce week end, mais le “petit illustré des gros clichés d’hollywood, le Retour” est en librairie depuis jeudi. N’hésitez pas à l’acheter ou le commander chez votre libraire préféré, ou même à la fnac ou Amazon si vous êtes des adorateurs de Satan (ça m’arrive à moi aussi par moment). Par ailleurs, si vous voulez jetez un oeil sur ce que je fais en dehors des clichés, j’ai sorti la BD “Allan BARTE contre les zombies” il y a deux semaines chez Vraoum. Des gros bisous à tous !

The Space and Time of Performance: Foucault’s “Heterotopia” I’ve been rereading Michel Foucault’s “Different Spaces” for a paper I’ve been working on and reading it after having read some of the texts for my performance theory class, I’m finding some interesting new connections. This is part of my favorite part of being a graduate student…rereading something even a few months after first reading it and already being able to form new ideas and connections based on just a few short months of knowledge building. In this piece, Foucault defines “heterotopia,” a term he coins to describe real space that seems somehow out of sync with its surround society. Can the “Academy” be considered a heterotopia? After defining heterotopia, Foucault gives several examples and fundamental principles of these spaces. One of his main examples is the theater, used to explain his third principle of heterotopias: “The heterotopia has the ability to juxtapose in a single real place several emplacements that are incompatible in themselves.
