Philip Zimbardo: The Secret Powers of Time (Animated)
Bio Philip Zimbardo Philip Zimbardo is internationally recognized as a leading "voice and face of contemporary psychology" through his widely seen PBS-TV series, "Discovering Psychology," his media appearances, best-selling trade books on shyness, and his classic research, The Stanford Prison Experiment. Zimbardo has been a Stanford University professor since 1968 (now an Emeritus Professor), having taught previously at Yale, NYU, and Columbia University. He continues teaching graduate students at the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology, and at the Naval Post Graduate School (Monterey). He has been given numerous awards and honors as an educator, researcher, writer, and service to the profession. His current research interests continue in the domain of social psychology, with a broad emphasis on everything interesting to study from shyness to time perspective, madness, cults, vandalism, political psychology, torture, terrorism, and evil.

PlayBook and iPad2, an unexpected conversation. March 19, 2011 - By Mike Hepples I had an awesome experience yesterday, having the unexpected delight of having one of our readers reach out and email me for my thoughts on a Tablet purchase. This first email ended up turning into an entire lengthy conversation, and I asked her for her permission to post it, so that others might benefit. Her questions were so perceptive, she had me arguing both sides of the PlayBook vs iPad decision with some serious discussions on the pros and cons of each. It is extremely hard to give advice to someone on what to purchase when it comes to technology, we all tend to have our own bias.

London Gets First Electrified Roads That Charge EV's Wirelessly It's no secret that toxic, heavy, and expensive batteries are the Achilles' heel of electric vehicles. But that's all about to change. Just yesterday we were talking about a super-lightweight car that draws its power from the road itself , but today we discover that it's not just a concept.

5 Great Science Books to Expand Your Mind From the dynamics of social networks to market bubbles, science has a lot to say about the world of technology. One of the great discoveries of modern science was the realization of how interconnected the world is. The deterministic, Newtonian view of a clockwork Universe was replaced by the much more dynamic, uncertain and entangled world of Quantum Mechanics.

Ground Zero II Have you ever wondered what would happen if a nuclear bomb goes off in your city? With Google's Maps framework and a bit of Javascript, you can see the outcome. And it doesn't look good. Now with Nuclear Fallout, Wind and Pressure Just what you need to be safe in these turbulent times: enter the address of that boss, teacher, colleague or loved one; select a weapon and a damage map mode. By clicking repeatedly on "Fallout" you can change the wind direction at the moment of the explosion.

Natural Swimming Ponds Ditch The Chemicals natural-swimming-pool-2 – Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World This gorgeous swimming pool isn’t a typical chlorine-filled watering hole–it’s actually a natural swimming pond that relies on plants to filter the water. (Don’t worry, you’re not swimming among the plants and stepping in squishy mud; the plant regeneration area is kept separate from the swimming area.) Even if you already have a swimming pool, you can enjoy the benefits of a chemical-free pond and relaxing natural environment using the structure you already have with a few design changes. Natural swimming ponds are already quite popular in Europe and are gaining interest in the US.

Sprword.com - Spread the Word Real Scientific Evidence of Controlled Implosion "The preconceived notion of NIST is that there's no evidence for explosives, as in there is no point in looking. That is the most unscientific thing which you can possibly think of. Not to look because you don't expect to find evidence and in fact the evidence is overwhelming. Columbia Engineers Prove Graphene is Strongest Material July 21, 2008 Columbia Engineers Prove Graphene is the Strongest Material Research scientists at Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science have achieved a breakthrough by proving that the carbon material graphene is the strongest material ever measured. Graphene holds great promise for the development of nano-scale devices and equipment. It consists of a single layer of graphite atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, similar to a honeycomb. As a two-dimensional material, every atom is exposed to the surface.

Marked for Life: Tattoo Matching Software to Identify Suspects (4/15/2010) When a criminal's face is masked, police have to search for other identifying markers. Many law enforcement agencies and correctional facilities keep a database of tattoos and scars that can be used to identify disguised suspects captured on surveillance cameras. However, searching a computerized tattoo database isn't as simple as flipping through a few photographs. Most databases catalogue thousands of images using text-based descriptions and have text-based search functions.

The Possible Discovery of the Higgs Will Shake the Foundations of Physics We are all aware that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the most powerful machine on planet earth and not yet operating at its full capacity. Since 2008, scientists at the CERN physics lab have slowing been increasing the intensity of the particle beams, with each time seeming to break its previous record. It was but a few days ago that the LHC lit up the headlines once again for breaking a world record of beam intensity previously achieved by Fermi's Tevatron in Batavia, Ill. In 2010, the Fermi Tevatron set the record for a beam intensity of 4.024 x 1032cm-2s-1 and the LHC recently broke that record on April 22nd at around midnight Geneva time by reaching a luminosity of 4.67 x 1032cm-2s-1. As a result of these high energy collisions, billions of points of data are being crunched and is a tremendous success for the CERN physics lab. As the intensity of the beams is increased, the hopes of scientists around the world is also being increased.
