List on eBay?[smooth=id:169;]The truth is, you have decided you don’t really want to deal with those options, or you’ve tried them all. The people at the yard sale offered $5 for something you marked $100 (which you spent $500 for originally), they showed up at 6 a.m. when you specifically advertised not before 8 a.m., and after all of the fun you had to drag the remaining items back into the garage.When you put something on Craigslist, you got some very strange calls, a little scary, or none at all.

Amazing Insects Defy Evolution

first_imgTwo recent articles about insects call for the ring buoy on the H.M.S. Darwin.  The first is about fossil amber from India, reported by the BBC News.  “We have complete, three-dimensionally preserved specimens that are 52 million years old,” one of the discoverers announced with astonishment, “and you can handle them almost like living ones.”  The insects are so perfectly preserved they look like they could crawl out if released from their gooey prison.    Several things about the discovery challenge conventional evolutionary wisdom.  One is that they contradict the theory of endemism, the notion that organisms living in isolation will tend to become more unique.  The insects found resemble those from other parts of the world.  Gondwana and Laurasia were supposed to have drifted apart slowly for 100 million years, but here in the Indian amber, the diversity of insects resembles specimens from Asia, Africa, and even South America.  “This means that, despite millions of years in isolation in the ocean, the region was a lot more biologically diverse that previously believed.”  To rescue the theory, the team envisioned insects flying long distances or drifting on ocean currents.    Another challenge from these fossils is that rain forests were not supposed to exist in this region 50 million years ago.  Finding evidence of a tropical environment twice as old as previously thought, the team had to say that they hadn’t found such environments before because “fossil deposits are simply very uncommon in tropical regions.”  A photo with the article shows where the amber samples were found in lignite mines in western India.    New Scientist also reported the story, underscoring the falsifying evidence that calls for theory revision: “India spent tens of millions of years as an island before colliding with Asia.  Yet the fossil record contains no evidence that unique species evolved on the subcontinent during this time, so India may not have been as isolated as it seemed to be.”    Living insects defy evolution, too.  The Guardian wrote a fascinating article about honeybees’ computational abilities.  “Bees can solve complex mathematical problems which keep computers busy for days, research has shown.”  One well-known puzzle, the so-called “traveling salesman” or “Chinese postman” problem, tries to solve for the optimal route between a number of points.  If computers had to calculate every route and then try to solve for the shortest one, it could take days.  “Bees,” however, “manage to reach the same solution using a brain the size of a grass seed.”  This is, in fact, their specialty: “Foraging bees solve travelling salesman problems every day.  They visit flowers at multiple locations and, because bees use lots of energy to fly, they find a route which keeps flying to a minimum.”  It’s unclear whether bees use a heuristic algorithm (by which computers could converge on solutions more rapidly, too), but the bee succeeds somehow, and with dramatically smaller hardware.  A team at the University of London thinks humans could learn from honeybees how to solve such problems more efficiently.  “Despite their tiny brains bees are capable of extraordinary feats of behaviour,” a researcher remarked, daring not explain how evolution could have produced a brain the size of a grass seed that can challenge our best computers.Darwinism is like the patient who has more bandages than skin, or the traveling salesman that lost money on every sale but thought he could make it up in volume.  In either case, the outcome will not be pretty.  Time for a body transplant and a new product.(Visited 116 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

(Image: Mathiba Molefe)Mathiba MolefeDespite the cold weather on Sunday morning 26 March, We, the People Walk event got off to a lively start with people of all ages and nationalities arriving at Constitution Hill.Brand South Africa together with Constitution Hill and a host of other stakeholders including the Gauteng Legislature, City of Johannesburg, the Anti-Racism Network South Africa (ARN SA) and SAFM, brought the fourth annual We, The People Walk event to life.This partnership forms part of Brand South Africa’s ongoing effort to promote the nation brand along with its values of constitutional awareness, unity and ubuntu.“Today is very significant for us as the custodians of the nation brand,” said Toni Gumede, the strategic relationship manager for government at Brand South Africa.“The values of the nation brand include tolerance, and that is what today is about. It also includes unity in diversity.”People of all ages and Nationality converged on Constitution hill to encourage constitutionalism in all who call South Africa their home. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)The walk, a demonstration of unity amongst all that live in South Africa, was aimed at promoting tolerance amongst everyone who calls the country their home and serves as a call to eliminate xenophobia.“Today we want to stand together and say, we affirm this constitutionalism and that everybody has a part to play,” Gumede explained.Following a quick warm-up and opening remarks by MC and actor, Sello Maake Ka-Ncube, the crowd set off on a walk through Johannesburg’s inner city.People then branched off on the various routes: a one kilometre, a five kilometre or an eight kilometre for those felt like taking in more of the city’s scenery.This year’s walk was the fourth instalment of the annual event and was attended by more than 2 000 people looking to celebrate diversity and to promote tolerance amongst everyone living in South Africa.People brave chilly weather on Sunday 26 March 2017 at Constitution Hill to take part in We, the People Walk event. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Jeanny Morulane, the general manager of marketing and communications at Constitution Hill, said that she was very pleased by the number of people who attended the event.“This is a very important event,” Morulane said. “Because we’re remembering our Constitution, we’re celebrating our Constitution at a very relevant space here at Constitution Hill.“We were very pleased with the turnout. It was a mix, a representation of all of South Africa, all races, all colours, all nationalities. So it was a really nice gathering for everyone.“It’s showing that our democracy is indeed getting firmer.”South Africa’s Constitution, considered by many as one of the most progressive in the world, values freedom of choice and encourages us all to strive for greatness while respecting and valuing cultural and linguistic diversity.In order for South Africa, and indeed Africa as a whole, to fulfil its extraordinary potential we all need to come together and work towards a common goal. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Stand up and be counted  “It’s about you, it’s about myself, it’s about your neighbour, it’s about every single person playing their part to do the right thing,” Gumede said.“Today is really about doing the right thing and embracing that which is the foundation, not only of our democracy, but the foundation on which the South Africa of today was built.”In order for South Africa, and indeed Africa as a whole, to fulfil its extraordinary potential we all need to come together and work towards a common goal.It is for this reason that Brand South Africa calls on everybody living in South Africa to play their part in maintaining a society that values the rights of those who call the country their home.“Unity becomes more meaningful and more powerful when we acknowledge our differences,” Morulane said.“Our differences are what make us such a beautiful collective.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

How To Succeed In Wearable Tech—Lessons From GoPro And Pebble

first_imgFred Armisen’s brilliant Saturday Night Live sketch of a tech reporter covering Google Glass pokes fun at the device, spawning other comedy videos that underscore the limitations of using it to record objects, people and events. “Google Glass doesn’t lend itself well to the world of GoPro, which is all about versatility,” Woodman argued. Mesh Into People’s LivesEric Migicovsky (featured, above) knows a thing or two about versatility. His Pebble e-paper smartwatch features an intentionally simple design intended to let its apps shine. The approach worked. Pebble was widely reported as Kickstarter’s most successful campaign, and the device’s popularity is largely credited for sparking the current race to make our wrists smart. See also: Why My Pebble Smartwatch Beats Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, Hands DownNot that Migicovsky intends to position the Pebble as a smartphone killer. “The best computer you have is the one sitting in your pocket,” he said. “Pebble and smartwatches should be things that take advantage of that. They should also take advantage of other devices [sitting around your house].”Interesting sentiment—especially since the smartwatch category’s newest entrant, the Galaxy Gear, comes from a company that makes everything from mobile devices and TVs to refrigerators. But there are a few obstacles standing in Samsung’s way, and those are exactly what Migicovsky wanted to call out.  Tags:#Arm Race#digital cameras#Eric Migicovsky#GoPro#mobile#Nicholas Woodman#Pebble#smartwatch#Wearable Computing The pre-release Google Glass can only dream of such achievements at this point. (Though Glass has made its bones with at least one extreme stunt of its own.) Maybe that’s why Woodman—who made Forbes’ billionaires list earlier this year—isn’t sweating over his would-be wearable tech competitor. Woodman also notes that Glass can only record from one vantage point. “Devices like Glass will do a terrific job of capturing the first-person perspective,” he said. But that’s just one of numerous possibilities, he added. Since GoPro mounts practically anywhere, it can record from numerous vantage points—whether lashed onto a boat in the ocean, a race car driver’s dashboard or a stratospheric skydiver.  adriana lee Related Posts “[A smartwatch] needs to mesh into your life; it needs to have a long battery life; and it needs to not be annoying,” he explained. “It needs to just work in your life.” Although Pebble has faced its own share of criticisms over late shipping on certain models, those jeers aren’t inherent product flaws. Meanwhile, the chief complaints about the Galaxy Gear so far revolve around dismal battery life and a chunky girth that could get in users’ way.“These [are] overspec’ed machines,” he continued, “but no one has really thought about how they fit into your life.” That’s what he thinks separates the Pebble. “It just works. That’s the experience we really want to encourage.” TechCrunch Disrupt images by Madeleine Weiss for ReadWrite. Fred Armisen photo screencapped from YouTube video by Doug Cody.

The skydiver had a GoPro body cam strapped on under his visor, recording his first person point of view as he broke the sound barrier.

Gov’t Resolute on Reducing Child Labour

first_img The Ministry of Labour and Social Security is resolute in its efforts to reduce the incidence of child labour in Jamaica, and has committed to raising public awareness on the matter.Data from the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) indicates that more than 16,000 children across the island are engaging in child labour.Director of the Child Labour Unit in the Ministry, Marva Ximinnies has informed that while this figure is dated, as the last national survey on child labour was conducted in 2002, the data shows that the issue requires vigorous attention.Ms. Ximinnies, who was speaking to JIS News, following a capacity-building workshop held at the May Pen Police Station in Clarendon on October 31, said the Ministry is actively working on coordinating a second national survey in an effort to ascertain a more current figure.“We have been negotiating with our international partners, so we are hoping to see that happen early next year,” she informed.Ms. Ximinnies said the Ministry is extremely concerned with the issue of child labour, noting the practice is quite rampant right across the island.“I don’t think any parish is exempt. It is practiced right across the island, because there are certain cultural issues and cultural barriers that would impede the work that we do…fundamentally, as a society, I don’t think we see anything wrong with children working,” she lamented.She revealed that a dipstick survey conducted in the parishes of St. Catherine, Clarendon and St. James found that incidence of child labour was quite high in those regions. A total of 626 vulnerable children between the ages of five to 17 were surveyed.“In Clarendon, we found that there were a little over 200 children engaged in child labour. Of that number, 143 children were not attending school,” Ms. Ximinnies said.She informed that a large number of the children were engaged in domestic labour, while others were involved in agriculture, vending, and the sex industry. Clarendon showed the highest incidence of all the three parishes surveyed.Ms. Ximinnies said the Ministry is keen on tackling the growing problem by strengthening the enforcement capabilities of police officers throughout the country, as well as informing citizens of their responsibilities.“That is why we felt it was important that we move the capacity-building workshops that we have been doing in Kingston and St. Catherine to include the entire island,” she stated.The one-day seminar, which was attended by police officers from the parishes of Clarendon, Manchester and St. Elizabeth, was aimed at training members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) on how to recognise and combat child labour and human trafficking.Similar workshops have been held in Kingston and St. Catherine, while upcoming seminars are scheduled for the parishes of Westmoreland, Hanover and St. James.The training is designed to build the knowledge-base of the police to understand the issue of child labour, as well as the supporting legislation to ensure greater enforcement.It is hoped that existing laws will be used more effectively to combat child labour and trafficking in persons.Child labour is defined by the (ILO) as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development.Global estimates suggest that 168 million children worldwide are engaged in child labour, accounting for almost 11 per cent of the child population as a whole. Story Highlights More than 16,000 children across the island are engaging in child labour. The Ministry is actively working on coordinating a second national survey in an effort to ascertain a more current figure. A dipstick survey conducted in the parishes of St. Catherine, Clarendon and St. James found that incidence of child labour was quite high in those regions. last_img read more
