'Whodunnit' awareness test: How many changes can you spot? The clip initially appears to be a scene from a cliched murder mystery, with a trench coat–wearing detective interviewing the maid, butler and lady of the house over the death of Lord Smithe, who lies sprawled on the drawing room floor. But the sketch is merely the premise for a test designed to show just how bad we are at noticing things that we're not looking for – including on the roads. After the detective names the killer the scene is replayed, this time filmed from a camera that captures all the film crew's out-of-shot manoeuvrings.

Designers in residence Kortrijk Antonio: A real good result! Mixing casein based glue with arabic gum it appears to be a really good idea. The material I got it’s hard and compact as it should be and after sanding it the surface looks really nice. LIFT architects - Home - [Andrew Payne] It has been entirely too long since I last posted but that should change over the coming weeks as I've been working on some really amazing projects. To kick things off, I thought I'd share a one week project that I developed to create a dimple halftone pattern on a surface using a custom build Grasshopper definition which writes the all of the G-code (for a ShopBot CNC mill) in real-time. I'll talk more about the fabrication setup below, but first... a little about the concept.

When I was learning to be a manual machinist, people used to say, "Budget as much for tooling as you do the machine." Danged if they weren't right. In fact, if you wanted to be well tooled up (and what machinist wouldn't?)

Data Science Jobs Board Data Analytics Associate Carlisle & Company · Concord, MA posted 2 days ago Junior Business Analyst – Sales & Marketing trivago · Düsseldorf posted 3 days ago Robotic Building While, architecture and architectural production are increasingly incorporating aspects of non-human agency employing data, information, and knowledge contained within the (worldwide) network connecting electronic devices, the relevant question for the future is not whether robotic building may be implemented, but how robotic systems may be incorporated into building processes and physically built environments in order to serve and improve everyday life; how these systems may offer solutions for energy-efficient building, demand-driven production and operation, and efficient use of resources. The RB session of the GSM #3 symposium aims to answer this question by critically reflecting on the achievements of the last decades in applications of robotics in architecture and furthermore outlining potential future developments and their societal implications.

Who is the perfect interim manager? The question 'What's the blueprint for the ideal senior interim HR professional?' provokes a similarly complicated answer. It's a wish list dependent on the job to be done, the company, the culture, the economic climate, the timeframe, possibly even the weather. But just as the pie is common to all of Sally's idiosyncratic dessert options, there are characteristics that all successful HR interims - those who come into a business temporarily, often to manage a change - share. "Any interim manager has to effect change in a very short space of time - a much more accelerated period than if they were permanent," says Doug Baird, MD of interim provider Interim Partners.
