Ending Overfishing: incredible 3D animation work.

Despite an increased awareness of overfishing, the majority of people still know very little about the scale of the destruction being wrought on the oceans. This film presents an unquestionable case for why overfishing needs to end and shows that there is still an opportunity for change.

Through reform of the EU‘s Common Fisheries Policy, fisheries ministers and members of the European Parliament can end overfishing. But only if you pressure them."

 

"Where this film really succeeds for us is in its incredible 3D animation work. What could normally feel like a lecture becomes an entertaining work of art. The film was originally produced in German and, only recently, translated to English.

While there is no obvious call-to-action, it certainly does make you think about your food choices."

Lyrics on TTPod

TTPod is basically a Chinese music player for smartphones..It  is just like any other music player and comes with bagful of features to impress you....

 

One  feature that I love about TTPod is the ability to sing along with the lyrics right in front of me..... The interesting thing with TTPod is that the lyrics fetched auto-scroll with the song while its playing, and thus it’s easier to sing along.

 

Furthermore, the lyrics are not limited to the app itself, you can view them on top of most of the other applications. Whether you are composing an email or texting someone while listening to music, the lyrics will be there in front like a teleprompter. So let’s see how to use these features in the app......

The Rise of Artificial Intelligence | Off Book | PBS Digital Studios

                                             

 PBSoffbook  The Rise of Artificial Intelligence | Off Book | PBS Digital Studios.       

"Artificial intelligence is an ever evolving goal for researchers, and the object of endless fascination for writers, filmmakers, and the general public. But despite our best science fiction visions, creating digital intelligence is incredibly difficult. The universe is a very complicated place, and humans have had millions of years to evolve the ability to navigate and make sense of it.

 

Contemporary attempts to create AI have us looking more at how our own brains work to see how a computer could simulate the core activities that create our intelligence.

 

No matter how we get there, it is certain that artificial intelligence will have tremendous impact on our society and economy, and lead us down a path towards evolving our own definitions of humanity."

13 great rap songs that celebrate the role of parks in city life and the history of hip hop.

13 great rap songs that celebrate the role of parks in city life and the history of hip hop. | Brainfriendly motivating comprehension resources for ESL EFL learners | Scoop.it

Here are 13 great rap songs that celebrate the role of parks in city life and the history of hip hop.

"

Hip hop was born in an apartment building in the Bronx, but it grew up in New York City’s parks. In the 1970s and ’80s, DJs would steal electricity from street lamps to power their speakers, plug in two turntables and a microphone, and throw a jam. Amateur rappers gathered for freestyle sessions in parks, most famously Manhattan’s Union Square.

 

Susie CagleJoin Grist as we explore the wild landscapes of our cities.

 

The essence of living in a dense urban area is trading private space for public space. City-dwellers don’t have sprawling suburban lawns, or often even a backyard.

 

But they do have access to great public and semi-public places: sidewalks, stoops, and, most importantly, parks. Parks are also where people without big houses, and people who are too young or too poor to gather in bars, go to party. And hip hop is party music, invented by DJs and MCs mixing records and making up rhymes to entertain the crowd.

 

So it’s natural that an intensely urban art form such as hip hop was nurtured in the parks. Hip hop is filled with nostalgia for the days of park jams, before the era of aggressive policing under the “broken windows” theory led to
