Immersion: a people-centric view of your email life

1. What do you mean by 'secure login'? Will Immersion be able to see my password? Immersion uses a technology called OAuth to authorize users via a Google website. The email address and password that you enter is not visible to Immersion since the login page is controlled completely by Google. Once Google verifies your credentials, Immersion is informed about that, and you are then given the choice by Google to allow/deny Immersion access to your email data.

[Impressive Dataviz] Reshaping New York - Interactive Feature Loading Celebrating the Waterfront New buildings constructed during Mr. Bloomberg's tenure as mayor. Celebrating the Waterfront Creative Commons Resources for Classroom Teachers Posted by Bill Ferriter on Sunday, 09/08/2013 If your students are using images, video, or music in the final products that they are producing for your class, then it is INCREDIBLY important that you introduce them to the Creative Commons -- an organization that is helping to redefine copyright laws. With a self-described goal to "save the world from failed sharing," the Creative Commons organization has developed a set of licenses that content creators can use when sharing the work. While every Creative Commons license requires that attribution to be given to the original owner of a piece of content, every license also details the ways that content can be used by others WITHOUT having to ask for permission in advance. That makes Creative Commons content perfect for use in classroom projects.

Blackstone TL1600 2013 - TopTenREVIEWS It is easy to get caught up in the cinema moment with a home theater speaker system like the Blackstone TL1600 from Polk Audio. This 5.1 package includes four small satellite speakers, a center-channel speaker and a subwoofer that work together to create immersive surround sound. Polk Audio really delivers by putting an emphasis on design and craftsmanship. Bass fanatics may feel somewhat underwhelmed by the frequency range of 40-22,000Hz, but the subwoofer redeems itself with an exceptionally well-blended sound. You won't think about how low the subwoofer can (or can’t) go when you are watching a good movie. You won't even remember the subwoofer is there.

» Beyond Tag Clouds: TagArcs for Wordpress Tag Visualization (part I) Beyond Tag Clouds: TagArcs for WordPress Tag Visualization Tag clouds are very use­ful to vi­sua­lize the most fre­quently used tags on a web­site, e.g. a blog. This is done by stee­ring at­ten­tion through em­pha­si­zed words whose font size, co­lor or po­si­tion stands out. But not­hing can be found out about tem­po­ral re­la­tion of a tag's posts. For me this be­came evi­dently on my own tag cloud (see left) which still ra­tes 'Lima' at the lea­ding po­si­tion whe­reas the re­la­ted ar­ti­cles are more then three years old. More un­for­t­u­na­tely is the mis­sing re­la­tion to other tags.

No link between prenatal mercury exposure and autism-like behaviors found The potential impact of exposure to low levels of mercury on the developing brain -- specifically by women consuming fish during pregnancy -- has long been the source of concern and some have argued that the chemical may be responsible for behavioral disorders such as autism. However, a new study that draws upon more than 30 years of research in the Republic of Seychelles reports that there is no association between pre-natal mercury exposure and autism-like behaviors. "This study shows no evidence of a correlation between low level mercury exposure and autism spectrum-like behaviors among children whose mothers ate, on average, up to 12 meals of fish each week during pregnancy," said Edwin van Wijngaarden, Ph.D., an associate professor in the University of Rochester Medical Center's (URMC) Department of Public Health Sciences and lead author of the study which appears online today in the journal Epidemiology.
