Folkrörelse ska få alla att surfa Minns ni nykterhets- och frikyrkorörelsen? Nu har tiden kommit för internetrörelsen. Det tycker Jan Gulliksen, som uppmanar alla nätanvändare att hjälpa en icke surfande vän ut på nätet. Jan Gulliksen ska hjälpa it-minister Anna-Karin Hatt att se till att vi svenskar blir bäst i världen på att ”utnyttja digitaliseringens möjligheter”. Därför drömmer han om att få i gång en ny folkrörelse. – En dag räcker ofta för att få upp intresset. Folkrörelsetankarna har inte konkretiserats fullt ut ännu. De flesta svenskar är redan flitiga nätanvändare. – Men bakom ett ointresse kan också finnas okunskap och rädsla för ny teknik. En surfplatta kan vara ett sätt att minska it-rädslan, tror Jan Gulliksen, som visat den för sin svärmor som blivit förtjust. Ulla Lanner, 75 år, har artros och ogillar smarta mobiler med små knappar. – Jag skulle nog kunna tänka mig att använda en sådan här, säger hon. Kommissionen har valt ut ett stort antal indikatorer, som ska användas som underlag för jämförelsen.

Expositions virtuelles sur l'océan, l'Arctique et la biodiversité marine The Tara Expeditions Foundation organizes expeditions to study and understand the impact of climate change and the ecological crisis on our oceans. French private initiative (non-profit), the Tara Foundation has been working since 2003 in favor of the environment and research thanks to a mythical boat, Tara, cut for extreme conditions. The Tara Foundation also acts concretely to strengthen the environmental awareness of the general public and young people, in particular through the Tara Junior device, and encourages politicians to act on environmental issues. With this in mind, Google France has been accompanying and supporting the Tara Expéditions Foundation since March 2017, in order to raise public awareness of ocean issues and to put science at the service of their protection. With the help of indoor Street View online visitors will be able to virtually discover the scientific schooner.

Do senior citizens prefer laptops or iPads? Answered by Senior.Housing.Advisor Thursday Apr 5th 2012 There is not a correct answer to this question because it really depends on the senior. Many seniors are up to date with technology these days, but there are some who prefer to stay away from it. Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether to purchase a laptop or iPad for a senior citizen: Does the senior citizen have keyboard skills? What is the senior's need for the device? How much does the senior move the device around? How much storage space does the senior need? Here are a few other features you should consider: Battery Life: The iPad can have up to 10 hours of life where as a laptop ranges from about 2-4 hours. Ports, Slots, and Drives: The iPad does not have a direct USB port, MicroSD slot, or CD drive. Apps: The iPad has access to the App Store and has many apps that are great for seniors. Multitasking: A laptop allows for high-level multitasking and high speed processing where as the iPad lacks in this area.
