AP Interactive visualizes a future of stories that reach beyond text Over the past two years, the Associated Press has nearly doubled the number of interactive graphics it produces each month, jumping from 40 in 2009 to over 70 so far in 2011. On the surface, that increase is logical almost to the point of being unsurprising: The AP, after all, makes a lot of stuff that serves a lot of clients, and the demand for interactives is growing. But while the AP’s Interactive department is pumping out a steady amount of work, it’s what they’re creating — and how they’re creating it — that’s really interesting: from data visualizations to mash-ups of video, maps, and animation that can jump from website to phone to (soon enough) tablet. Often, they’re creating those features against the backdrop of breaking news. Data visualization is “going through a kind of renaissance in journalism,” said Shazna Nessa, director of Interactive for the AP. “It’s integral to everything we do,” Nessa said of the team’s reliance on programmers.
STATE OF TERROR There’s never been such a meticulously organised extremist group. A huge cache of secret documents seized with former IS leaders, Abu Hajjar and Abdul Rahman al-Bilawi, reveal a detailed pyramid hierarchy. At the top is its reclusive and mysterious leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, its self-proclaimed Caliph of the Caliphate. The platform for this unprecedented terror enterprise was carefully laid during the lean years of its predecessor al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). With echoes of modern corporations, IS has even issued annual reports with performance targets containing full details of foreign recruits, assassinations and the tally of “unbelievers” forced to convert. Click on the graphic below to see how IS seized their territory. IS leaders quickly organised their newly conquered territory. Women are only allowed to leave the house for worship or approved work – always accompanied by a man. And the cost of living is high.

FLUG MH17 | Auf der Suche nach der Wahrheit Alltop - Top Politics News Enviar olores por Whatsapp será posible en 2016 con oPhone La tecnología y olor no parecen conceptos llamados a entenderse. Más bien solemos relacionar la tecnología con algo aséptico, frío, neutro. Hasta que ha llegado oPhone, un dispositivo que permite enviar mensajes con olor a través del teléfono móvil o la tableta. Qué pensaría si le llegara una foto al WhatsApp con las lentejas que le ha preparado su madre y que pudiera olerlas; o enviar por correo la imagen del ramo de flores que le ha comprado a su mujer junto con su aroma; o ver en su teléfono una foto de su pequeña hija y percibir su olor a niña recién bañada. Todo esto es posible ya con oPhone, un proyecto en cuyo desarrollo trabaja la empresa marbellí Kibo Studios y que pretende superar las barreras tecnológicas y permitir la comunicación sensitiva a distancia. La labor de Kibo Studios, que comparte inversores con oPhone, radica ahora, según Linares, en "proponer, aportar, sugerir e investigar" para elaborar nuevas ideas de negocio y desarrollar aplicaciones entorno a este invento.
The Wetsuitman A gale was blowing from the south-west as the elderly architect put on his jacket and rubber boots and went to face the elements. Down in the bay, four metre high waves crashed against the cliffs and sent sea spray hundreds of metres across the grazing land at Norway’s southernmost tip. The first thing the architect noticed when he approached the sea was a wetsuit. It lay stretched out on the small patch of grass between the cliffs, right outside the reach of the waves. “That might be useful,” the architect thought. He could smell seaweed and the sea and a faint, sickly scent of something else. The wetsuit was the Triboard brand. Sherriff Kåre Unnhammer from Farsund police station is an authoritative figure with large serious eyes, a big moustache and gold teeth that gleam when he speaks. “This is a peaceful place,” says Unnhammer. He turns to his computer and reads from the log. «When we have so little to go on, we have to turn to DNA profiling to find the answer.» Welcome to the Jungle.
OpEdNews.Com Progressive, Tough Liberal News and Opinion Entrenamientos virtuales de fútbol bastante realistas para rehabilitación y mejora Por @Alvy — 31 de Octubre de 2018 Los británicos de Mi Hiepa Sports llevan tiempo perfeccionando un sistema de realidad virtual para entrenamiento futbolístico del que los vídeos tienen muy buen aspecto; sólo faltaría probarlo a ver las sensaciones. Se trata de unas gafas VR y dos botas llenas de sensores de movimiento en los pies del jugador. A partir de ahí se reconstruye la escena y sucede lo que se ve en las imágenes: se puede chutar el balón y ver lo que sucede gracias a una simulación con física bastante realista. El invento tiene buena pinta porque parece que las reacciones son buenas y rápidas –aunque es sólo un vídeo– y también teniendo en cuenta que no se trata de un entrenamiento físico sino más bien mental y de reacción. Está pensado para jugadores lesionados en rehabilitación, que tienen que recuperarse y practicar, pero sin tener que recibir impactos del balón ni realizar grandes esfuerzos.
Atterwasch - a Scroll-Doc It may not be the end of the world, but it could be the end of Atterwasch, population 241. While Chancellor Angela Merkel has promised her country a future virtually free of fossil fuels, it may seem strange that this village in eastern Germany, and two neighboring ones, are still fighting plans to wipe them, quite literally, off the map. But Germany’s sudden hunger for coal has emerged as the dirty side of Ms. Merkel’s ambitions to shut down the country’s nuclear power plants by 2022 and eventually move Germans mostly to renewable energy...
