From Airplanes to Art-Origami

As early as the second century, people in China were busy beginning an art form that is consistently gaining in popularity all over the world. Most of us think of origami as strictly part of the Japanese culture. However, the art of “folding paper” also dates back to Germany, Spain and especially China. Today, though it is definitely the Japanese icon that has developed into the modern art form we know and love.

Even Orville and Wilbur Wright could have been involved in the childhood tradition of making paper airplanes! This would be a form of origami at it’s simplest. The evolvement of this cultural icon is phenomenal to say the least. The Japanese crane or “tsuru” has become the symbol for peace in many countries.

The Future of Education is Here

One hundred years ago the process of providing basic instruction, teaching a skill, or learning a language was conducted in a specific place at a specific time. Science has changed the entire model and completely redefined the educational process. Today, one can study Spanish for an hour with an electronic tutor, learn to change a pee trap under the sink the next hour and attend a lecture in Moscow the following hour. None of these learning experiences require planning and they can also be paused due to data recording and on-demand viewing.

What is needed is the common technology present in most American homes. he opportunity to earn virtually any level of education without leaving his or her home. Attending online classes with laptops allows tremendous flexibility and expands the opportunities to learn to thousands of individuals who could not participate in traditional classroom instruction. Science has created learning environments that rival traditional classrooms in many ways by providing stored lectures, multimedia instruction and searchable electronic texts. These tremendous enhancements make knowledge available to nearly every American and present an opportunity to usher in a new era of a highly educated citizenry capable of understanding the most complex concepts.

Science continues its push to stretch the boundaries of education by expanding the types of knowledge available. Where once only basic concepts could be taught via electronic broadcasts, today there are almost limitless subjects one can choose to pursue. Indeed, without the breakthroughs provided in communication, storage and transmission the educational model could be the same today as it was in the era of the one room schoolhouse. Private schools Melbourne could be a start point for your future education and brochure printing is a good way for students to enhance pocket money flow.

Future School

The classrooms of today are quite different from those of decades past. While their parents sat at desks watching a teacher write notes on a chalkboard, today’s students can watch their teacher’s lessons projected onto a screen directly from the teacher’s computer. Such technology is being used with greater frequency in classrooms as the districts are making room in their budgets for the materials. As technology becomes more readily available, the schools of the future will likely embrace it even more.

The schools of the future will see students interact more with their teacher and possibly other classrooms. Right now, the technology is being tested in some districts which provides the students with a remote they can use to answer the questions projected onto a screen. The teacher can get the real time results from the entire classroom for the answer to a problem. That way he is better able to determine if the whole class is grasping the concept, and if not, who needs additional help.

Already many schools have computer labs, but the schools of the future will have laptop computers in every classroom for every student. Perhaps these could even be built into the desktops with touch screens which will connect the student’s computer directly to the teacher’s. This technology could allow the teacher to more closely monitor all the students’ work from his desk.

The possibilities are endless for the schools of the future, and only technology and time will tell what is on the horizon for education.

True Or False – Aliens Review

Unidentified flying object (UFO), represent any observed phenomenon in the air which can not be determined. The term was coined in 1952 by the U.S. Air Force introduced to refer to a separate class of observations that remain unexplained chronic. The investigation is called ufology. Most UFOs later turn out to be ordinary natural phenomena or artificial light.

Since the late 40 years of the twentieth century the term UFO used as such, especially after Roswell accident, in an official press release was denounced as an observation balloon. Much later in the year 1990 , brought the U.S. Air Force in response to a letter written by Steven H. Schiff and directed to the GAO (Government Accounting Office), a new report in which he announced that the creatures which were found at the crash were actually weather balloons test dummies. These dummies were only developed in the year 1950, several years after the crash. The term flying saucer came into use after the description by the American businessman and pilot Kenneth Arnold of foreign objects that he saw at June 24, 1947.

What is Future Discovery

History and activities of the futures discovery group

Most people in the world today would pay a fortune to discover what if anything the future can unlock for them. Many have consulted fortunetellers while others dive into spirituality in a quest to uncover the future. Despite all this, people are still disillusioned while others have decided to work with what they can see here and now. Futures discovery group may provide the answers to these questions.

Tropical Forest Carbon Storage

New NASA Map Reveals Patterns Of Tropical Forest Carbon Storage

WASHINGTON — A NASA-led research team has used a variety of NASA satellite data to create the most precise map ever produced depicting the amount and location of carbon stored in Earth’s tropical forests. The data are expected to provide a baseline for ongoing carbon monitoring and research and serve as a useful resource for managing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

The new map, created from ground- and space-based data, shows for the first time the distribution of carbon stored in forests across more than 75 tropical countries. Most of that carbon is stored in the extensive forests of Latin America.

“This is a benchmark map that can be used as a basis for comparison in the future when the forest cover and its carbon stock change,” said Sassan Saatchi of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., who led the research. “The map shows not only the amount of carbon stored in the forest, but also the accuracy of the estimate.” The study was published May 30 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Is 2012 the year that the world will end?

The year 2012 has finally arrived. On December 21 at 21.12 o’clock, will, according to many people who believe the Mayan calendar, the world in its current form, perish. Why do many people believe that the world on that day will change a major? It is the ‘guilt’ of the Mayan Indian population, which has been extinct for ages.
2012 is the year that the world will end or at least the earth will endure a big change. The cyclical calendar of the Maya Tzolkin dates from a distant past. There you can read that the time ends in 2012. Then there is a new Sun On December 21, 2012 at 21.12 hours will begin. Although the recently was discovered that time can last as late in the year 2208 or 2220. There would be a mathematical error.

Future Today

It’s hard to believe that in the last eight years, no real progress was made on the advance of stem cell research. Preliminary tests and experiments have already shown what amazing things can be done with stem cells if given the chance. From repairing someone’s central nervous system to regrowing organs for transplant, the subject truly does seem like it is straight out of a science fiction movie from the future.

Although the technology is still in its most premature form, stem cells have the potential to become one of the most important aspects of the medical community. The possibilities seem to know no bounds and could repair an astounding number of people who suffer from injuries and conditions that there are no known cures for.

Possibilities Of Time Travel

Nikola Tesla was tuned into the energy that creates matter. His achievements and inventions, especially the AC motor had a dramatic impact on the 20th century, but he seemed to be more interested in understanding antigravity, invisibility and developing a method to travel through time. Most of Tesla’s ideas were never made public, but they have been used by the government and others to develop new weapons that use radio frequency and particle beams as their source of energy.
