NSA Reportedly Broke Privacy Rules Thousands Of Times Per Year

NSA Reportedly Broke Privacy Rules Thousands Of Times Per Year | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON -- The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

 

Most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by law and executive order.


They range from significant violations of law to typographical errors that resulted in unintended interception of U.S. emails and telephone calls, the Post said, citing an internal audit and other top-secret documents provided it earlier this summer from NSA leaker Edward Snowden, a former systems analyst with the agency.

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Though universities are rushing to embrace online courses, true education requires one mind engaging with another.

 

Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves.

 

Just as coaching requires individual attention, education, at its core, requires one mind engaging with another, in real time: listening, understanding, correcting, modeling, suggesting, prodding, denying, affirming, and critiquing thoughts and their expression.

“Education is a kind of dynamic movement where improvements are based on the specific ability and competences of teachers. Turning our classical liceo into a modern liceo, using instruments to improve innovation and teaching, is our main goal. […] Our students go from absorbing lessons like a sponge into actors that play a real role in a cooperative technologically-supported class.”

This article effected me in the way of how I learn best. I am an audible learner but i also like to have a hard book to flip the pages of and look back on, instead of having to switch screens . Part of me has an aversion to reading long articles/stories/content online because in a textbook, i can use post-it notes, fold over pages, and flip back and forth easily. It is great that they are trying to make everything uniform with teachers and students, but not everyone learns the same or enjoys staring at a screen for countless hours in order to finish their homework. The internet is also a huge distraction.

The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.

 

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

Of course they aren't. They are the raw material that come together and result in learning styles. I've got to read this :)
Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 3:18 AM
Read it. I've always found Gardner's MI theory interesting - because it's a great equalizer - when I was growing up logical-mathematical intelligence (in Gardner's terminology) was given the highest importance - art, music, sports etc. were considered talents/gifts - and not intelligences. Gardner made them more respectable by calling them intelligences. This is why I too can call myself intelligent today - visually and spatially intelligent. Ahem!

Brain-penetrating nanoparticle attacks deadly tumors

 

(Nanowerk News) Scientists have developed a new approach for treating a deadly brain cancer that strikes 15,000 in the United States annually and for which there is no effective long-term therapy. The researchers, from Yale and Johns Hopkins, have shown that the approach extends the lives of laboratory animals and are preparing to seek government approval for a human clinical trial.

 

“We wanted to make a system that would penetrate into the brain and deliver drugs to a greater volume of tissue,” said Mark Saltzman, a biomedical engineer at Yale and principal investigator of the research. “Drugs have to get to tumor cells in order to work, and they have to be the right drugs.
