Why Daydreaming Isn’t a Waste of Time

first_imgKQED Public Radio:Parents and teachers expend a lot of energy getting kids to pay attention, concentrate, and focus on the task in front of them. What adults don’t do, according to University of Southern California education professor Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, is teach children the value of the more diffuse mental activity that characterizes our inner lives: daydreaming, remembering, reflecting.Yet this kind of introspection is crucial to our mental health, to our relationships, and to our emotional and moral development. And it promotes the skill parents and teachers care so much about: the capacity to focus on the world outside our heads.Read the whole story: KQED Public Radio More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Penumpang Keluhkan Ada ‘Kamera Tersembunyi’ di Layar Hiburan Singapore Airlines

first_imgSumber: News.com.au Jika Anda merupakan tipe orang yang selalu menutupi kamera di komputer atau laptop dengan menggunakan selotip – seperti yang dilakukan Mark Zuckerberg, maka Anda mungkin tidak akan terlalu senang jika Anda menemukan sebuah kamera ‘tersembunyi’ di layar yang terletak di belakang bangku penumpang di sebuah penerbangan. Sudah barang tentu perasaan seperti dimata-matai akan senantiasa mendampingi perjalanan Anda hingga sampai di terminal bandara yang Anda tuju.Baca Juga: Terima Airbus A350-900ULR, Singapore Airlines Siap Terbang ke New Jersey Non-StopYa, gambaran peristiwa di atas ternyata dialami oleh maskapai asal negeri tetangga, Singapore Airlines, dimana flag carrier Singapura tersebut mendapat keluhan dari sejumlah penumpang terkait kehadiran kamera pada layar di belakang bangku penumpang ini. Sebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman digitaltrends.com (19/2/2019), pihak Singapore Airlines menjelaskan bahwa kamera tersebut terhubung dengan sejumlah perangkat perekaman atau pengambilan gambar apapun. Penjelasan Singapore Airlines tersebut dilontarkan setelah seorang penumpang layanan tersebut mengunggah cuitan – lengkap dengan beberapa foto dan mengunggahnya ke jejaring sosial Twitter. Adalah Vitaly Kamluk, seorang pengguna Twitter yang mengunggah cuitan tersebut, dan tidak lupa ia juga me-mention akun Twitter resmi Singapore Airlines, @SingaporeAir dalam cuitannya tersebut.“Saya baru saja menemukan sebuah sensor yang seolah menatap saya dari bagian belakang bangku yang berada di depan saya. Adakah penjelasan lebih lanjut mengenai benda yang menyerupai sebuah kamera ini? Apakah @SingaporeAir bisa memberikan klarifikasi terkait hal ini?” tulis Vitaly Kamluk di Twitter pada Minggu (17/2/2019).Menanggapi cuitan dari Vitaly tersebut, pihak Singapore Airlines menegaskan bahwa pihaknya tidak pernah menggunakan kamera tersebut dan tidak memiliki rencana untuk mengaktifkannya. Anggota dari aliansi penerbangan Star Alliance ini juga menjelaskan bahwa kamera tersebut sudah ada sejak pertama kali pesawat terkait datang, alias tidak ada permintaan khusus dari Singapore Airlines untuk menambahkan fitur tersebut.Sementara itu menurut situs berita Singapura, The Strait Times, sistem hiburan dalam penerbangan yang dimaksud dibuat hasil kerja sama Panasonic dan perusahaan transportasi dan teknologi Thales, dan telah dipasang pada pesawat Airbus A350/A380, Boeing 777-300ER, dan Boeing 787-10, dimana totalnya ada 84 unit pesawat yang memiliki kamera tidak aktif tersebut.Baca Juga: Jaga Kesehatan Penumpang di Penerbangan Jarak Jauh, Singapore Airlines Gandeng Canyon RanchDampak dari kejadian ini adalah penumpang banyak yang khawatir karena mungkin saja data visual mereka ‘diambil’ oleh pihak maskapai selama mereka mengudara.Kendati pihak Singapore Airlines telah menegaskan bahwa kamera tersebut tidaklah aktif, namun satu langkah preventif yang bisa Anda lakukan jika kebetulan Anda hendak mengudara menggunakan Singapore Airlines dalam waktu dekat ini adalah, siapkan selotip untuk menutup kamera tersebut.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more

Google’s New Mobile Photo-Sharing App Groups Images By Theme

first_imgRelated Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Photovine, Google’s answer to the mobile photo-sharing craze, went live in the iTunes App Store today.The app, which is only available on iOS to start, puts a somewhat unique spin on social photo publishing by grouping images into common themes, or “vines.” Vine topics can be straight-forward, such as the currently popular “Cutest Dog” vine, or it can leave a little more room for creativity, like “Things I Love About Summer” or “What’s Going On Here?”Photovine foregoes the artistic, vintage-style filters of popular photo apps like Instagram and Hipstamatic and instead focuses on this thematic grouping of photos. Think of the role photo-tagging plays on a service like Instagram, but pull that feature foward and make it central to the way the app works and you have the concept of “vines.” You can start by browsing vines and finding ones you want to contribute to or by simply snapping a photo from within the app and then searching for a vine by name before you post it. Once published, your photo will be displayed publicly both within that vine and from your profile. The app’s interface is rather nicely designed, even if it does bear a striking resemblance to the UI of Piictu, another photo-sharing app. If the design doesn’t remind you of Google’s usual aesthetic, that’s because the app came from the team at Slide, a social startup they acquired last year. john paul titlow 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Google#Photo Sharing Services#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Big Ten suspends Coleman

The Big Ten suspended Ohio State senior safety Kurt Coleman on Monday for one game after a helmet-to-helmet hit in the final minute of Saturday’s 30-0 victory over Illinois.Coleman, a team captain, was flagged for a personal foul after an illegal hit on Illini backup quarterback Eddie McGee.“Obviously, we will abide by the one-game suspension from the Big Ten Conference, but we feel as if there was poor judgment throughout,” said Director of Athletics Gene Smith and coach Jim Tressel in a statement.After a four-yard rush, McGee was wrapped up by linebackers Tom Ingham and Andrew Sweat before Coleman entered the action.The Big Ten prohibits helmet-to-helmet contact, and the league said Coleman targeted a defenseless player, a motion that Smith and Tressel disagreed with.“We concur that Kurt’s hit was late and a result of poor judgment; he was thus penalized and removed from the game by his coaches,” they said in the statement. “We do not agree that it was ‘pre-meditated’ or that he was ‘targeting a defenseless’ player.”The Big Ten can review any questionable offense, and since Coleman wasn’t ejected from Saturday’s game, his suspension signals that the referees viewed the play differently, Smith and Tressel said. “The decision to suspend points to the Conference office’s feeling as if there was poor judgment by the game officials for their decision not to eject at the time,” they said.Though they don’t agree with the penalty, Smith and Tressel said they will abide by the final ruling.“In our estimation, the final ‘poor judgment’ is in levying a one-game suspension in this particular case,” they said. “We will abide by the decision, learn from it, and move forward.”Coleman is second on the Buckeye defense with 29 tackles. Senior Anderson Russell, who lost his starting job to Jermale Hines two weeks ago, is expected to start in Coleman’s place on Saturday.University officials declined to comment further on the suspension. read more
