Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, January 27, 2014 4:33 PM

Where you can and can not plant vegetables can become a major issue in communities that want to maintain their "reputations". While some gardeners plant crops where they can get the most sun and access to supplies, neighbors and neighborhoods, such as that in Miami Shores, do not always approve of planting in the front yard. This story focuses on a woman's need to garden for food and the shift into "turf-wars."

This seems like fun. The NodeJS package shp2stl by Doug McCune lets you convert a shapefile to a 3-D model, which can then send to your favorite 3-D printer (because you know we all have at least two of them lying around). Assuming you have NodeJS setup, simply point the package to your shapefile, specify which attribute to use for height, and presto changeo there's your 3-D model.

35 maps that explain how America is a nation of immigrants

35 maps that explain how America is a nation of immigrants | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Take a tour through America's immigrant heritage — at its most and least welcoming

 

American politicians, and Americans themselves, love to call themselves "a nation of immigrants": a place where everyone's family has, at some point, chosen to come to seek freedom or a better life. America has managed to maintain that self-image through the forced migration of millions of African slaves, restrictive immigration laws based on fears of "inferior" races, and nativist movements that encouraged immigrants to assimilate or simply leave.

But while the reality of America's immigrant heritage is more complicated than the myth, it's still a fundamental truth of the country's history. It's impossible to understand the country today without knowing who's been kept out, who's been let in, and how they've been treated once they arrive.

Jason Schneider's curator insight, January 27, 2:52 PM

As a former New Yorker myself, I find map 34 to be interesting. It's unusual how Staten Island doesn't have any Italian immigrants being that Staten Island contains a town called little Italy. I'm not surprised that many immigrants are all sorts of different races because New York City is right overseas from Europe and Western Asia. However, I don't understand why there are a lot of Chinese immigrants in New York, New York because if China were to go overseas to the United States, their closet state would be California. One map that I thought was pretty accurate was the first map. I thought it was accurate because most foreign immigrants were not scattered around the United States. For example, the most of the Mexican immigrants were mostly in the southwestern region of the United States obviously because Mexico is southwest of the United States. Also, many African-American immigrants were in the southeastern area of the United States and it makes sense because I did some research on Georgia and I found out that Georgia has many different ethnic groups. The most popular ethnic group would be African-Americans.

Norka McAlister's curator insight, January 27, 7:52 PM

 It is very impress on how immigrants has been change the shape of America in the past century. As an immigrant, America has been the protecting motherland and offering a lot of opportunities and better quality life. However, immigrants also has been contributed to America in different ways such as workforce with different cultural and values. In the past century, the theme of immigration has been like roller coaster in terms of legal, political and demographic aspects. Just like other immigrant, the Statue of Liberty brings a lot tourists and contribute to America for the tourist industry, immigrants have grown in population and cities over the past decades and has been change America in different ways. European, Asian, African, Hispanic have added a lot of values to America in terms of grown population and changing the shape of different cities. Immigrants have contributed to the history and change the contour of this country.

Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.

Robots embrace Ubuntu as it invades the internet of things | David Meyer | GigaOM Tech News

Robots embrace Ubuntu as it invades the internet of things | David Meyer | GigaOM Tech News | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

Canonical has revealed what I reckon is its biggest announcement in years: Ubuntu is about to invade the internet of things with a minimal version of the Linux distribution that it hopes will provide a standardized platform for connected devices from drones to home hubs.

“Snappy” Ubuntu Core came out of Canonical‘s mobile efforts (which are yet to go anywhere) and was made available on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and the Google Cloud Platform at the end of 2014. Now it’s available for smart devices, and Canonical has already got players such as the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), drone outfit Erle Robotics and connected hub maker NinjaBlocks on board.

Unlike traditional, package-based Ubuntu for servers and desktops, the extensible Core keeps apps and each part of the OS securely isolated from one another, and it allows for “transactional updates” — they only need to include the difference between the old and new version, allowing for easy upgrading and rolling-back if needed. In the cloud, Canonical is pushing Ubuntu Core as ideal for Docker and other containerized apps.
