Super Slow Motion Video Flying Hair

Thu April 14, 2011

Lilly Donaldson – Flying Hair from Mutant Jukebox on Vimeo.

Recording video using a fast frame rate and then playing it back at normal frame rate results in slow motion video. It used to be that only pros and their fancy video cameras could capture such motion but today’s digital cameras are increasingly able to do so. In this video, the woman’s slow motion flying hair almost makes her look like the fabled Medusa.

Time To Steer Clear Of Online Dangers

Tue April 12, 2011

Online attitudes should mirror real life behaviour

By James Galpin, McAfee Canada

Most Canadians make a concerted effort to protect themselves so they avoid threats such as thefts, car accidents and physical attacks. They take fewer precautions, however, when it comes to steering clear of the many dangers that exist online.

Perhaps they believe there isn’t much cause for alarm. This notion can be quickly dispelled with a look at some of the latest data. A recent survey from Netlingo.com indicates that 44 per cent of teens with online profiles on social networking sites report having been contacted online by a stranger. Adults clearly have their own threats to worry about as well; according to Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2010 Identity Fraud Survey Report, the number of identity fraud victims last year totaled more than 11 million in the United States alone.

LightWedge Verso e-reader Accessories Now In Canada

Tue April 12, 2011

Verso e-reader Arc Light

Verso e-reader Arc Light

Gentec to distribute innovative line of Verso™ e-reader accessories from LightWedge

TORONTO, ON., April 12, 2011 – Gentec International is pleased to announce a new Canadian distribution agreement with LightWedge LLC for its line of Verso™ e-reader accessories. Designed to illuminate, protect, and personalize your e-reader, the innovative product line includes lights, protective cases, and unique covers, and is compatible with many popular brands, including Kobo, Kindle, and Sony.

Because most e-readers are not backlit, Verso™ lights offer readers an ideal lighting solution that is as stylish as it is functional. The Arc Light features a USB rechargeable battery (offering up to 15 hours of light on a single charge) and patent-pending cuffs designed to slide onto your e-reader and stay in place. The light’s curved arm glides up into the “on” position, casting bright, even light without any adjustment. The patent-pending Wrap Light light features a rechargeable battery and interchangeable cuffs designed to securely fit onto most e-readers to provide hours of bright, even light. The Clip Light attaches to your e-reader or e-reader cover, casting an even pool of LED light without any “hot spots” that can accelerate eye fatigue. Reflection or glare from the screen can easily be eliminated by adjusting the flexible neck.

The World Viewed Thru Wikipedia’s Articles

Tue April 12, 2011

Wikipedia World View

Wikipedia World View

Who does not know or refer to Wikipedia today? Articles cover all sorts of topics — in fact, whatever interest their authors. Many articles have references to historic events. When Gareth Llyod and Tom Martin cross-referenced the historic events with their coordinates, a dynamic visualization of Wikipedia’s view of world history emerged: empires fall, wars break out and continents are discovered.

They pulled out 424,000 Wikipedia articles with coordinates and 35,000 references to events, cross-referenced them to produce about 15,000 events with locations. When they map the results over time, you get “A history of the world in 100 seconds.”

Tibethan Portrait

Phil Borges - Tibetan Portrait

Phil Borges - Tibetan Portrait

Phil Borges devotes his photography to the welfare of indigenous and tribal people, capturing the richness and value of the cultures.

“I want the viewer to see these people as individuals, to know their names and a bit of their history, not just to view them as an anonymous part of some remote ethnic or tribal group.”

The Tibetan Portrait exhibit and book were created to bring attention to the oppression of a deeply spiritual culture by a more powerful nation state. I saw the Tibetan conflict as another example in a repeating pattern of cultural genocide against indigenous people–a pattern that unfortunately continues to this day.
