For the first time, active science researchers to have a unified voice representing them on an EU and international level. Indeed, the two major umbrella researcher representative associations in Europe–namely ICoRSA and Eurodoc–have just signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) in that sense, announced on 19th June 2014. It enables both organisations to act together to represent the interests of researchers at European level. Previously, independent efforts of the two associations to represent the interest of researchers were limited and lacked coordination in defending the interests of the entire research community.
13 of Edward Hopper’s paintings are brought alive by the film, telling the story of a woman, whose thoughts, emotions and contemplations lets us observe an era in American history.
Shirley is a woman in America in the 1930s, ‘40s, ‘50s, and early ‘60s. A woman who would like to influence the course of history with her professional and socio-political involvement. A woman who does not accept the reality of the Depression years, WWII, the McCarthy era, race conflicts and civil rights campaigns as given but rather as generated and adjustable. A woman whose work as an actress has familiarised her with the staging of reality, the questioning and shaping of it; an actress who doesn’t identify her purpose and future with that of solo success or stardom but who strives to give social potency to theatre as part of a collective. A woman who cannot identify with the traditional role model of a wife yet longs to have a life partner. A woman who does not compromise in moments of professional crisis and is not afraid to take on menial jobs to secure her livelihood. A woman who in a moment of private crisis decides to stick with her partner and puts her own professional interest on the back burner. A woman who is infuriated by political repression yet not driven to despair, and who has nothing but disdain for betrayal.
Shirley, an attractive, charismatic, committed, emancipated woman.

The .io domain is a hit, but few startups using it appreciate the associations it carries — a mass expulsion that took place within living memory, and a crucial staging-post for the “War on Terror”.
The .io country code top-level domain is pretty popular right now, particularly among tech startups that want to take advantage of the snappy input/output reference and the relative availability of names — Fusion.io, Wise.io and Import.io are just a few examples. But who benefits from the sale of .io domains? Sadly, not the people who ultimately should.
While .tv brings in millions of dollars each year for the tiny South Pacific island nation of Tuvalu, and .me benefits Montenegro, the people of the British Indian Ocean Territory, or the Chagos Islands, have no such luck. Indeed, profits from the sale of each .io domain flow to the very force that expelled the Chagossian or Ilois people from their equatorial land just a generation or two ago: the British government.
“??Internet of Things?? What?” This is the first reaction I get from my colleagues. They don’t like to hear technical-technological terms and it takes me a while to convince them to think over it. Internet of things is a concept not directly related to education system today but it will be a part of it eventually because it will have a major role in our daily lives.
Let’s start with the definition of “regular” internet. You use it every day for multiple purposes. It’s on your computer, on your mobile device but can you write down a clear definition for it? Please pause for a moment and try it.

When developing Skoog young people with autism were one of the key groups we worked with. The impact of active music creation for these pupils was a powerful driver in our work and one thing that became very clear was that we needed to try and create tools to support them effectively in making their own music.
And this can mean we need to let go of what we think 'should be' happening and let the students do what they want to, what they feel, as Dr John Bidduplh says, "In order to engage musically with people on the autistic spectrum we might have to suspend or even extend our own assumptions about what music really is, how sound is controlled and modified to make music compositions and performances etc."
Students who struggle early on with basic reading and math skills may continue to have a hard time as they progress through school. But many early grade teachers with students struggling in math appear to be more likely to use ineffective teaching methods, according to a new study.
Vice-President of the European Commission Neelie Kroes says it’s important to understand 5G mobile will be more than just the next step beyond today’s 4G networks. “It will also offer totally new possibilities to connect people, and also things – being cars, houses, energy infrastructures. All of them at once, wherever you and they are."
A new video seeks to redefine the phrase "like a girl," as something strong and powerful. It's part of the larger #LikeAGirl campaign by Always, the feminine hygiene brand owned by Procter & Gamble. Award-winning filmmaker Lauren Greenfield, who directed the 2012 documentary, Queen of Versailles, teamed up with Always to illustrate the brand's mission to empower females and attack what Always calls a "the self-esteem crisis" among young girls.
Virtually no foreign government is off-limits for the National Security Agency, which has been authorized to intercept information “concerning” all but four countries, according to top-secret documents.
The United States has long had broad no-spying arrangements with those four countries — Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand — in a group known collectively with the United States as the Five Eyes. But a classified 2010 legal certification and other documents indicate the NSA has been given a far more elastic authority than previously known, one that allows it to intercept through U.S. companies not just the communications of its overseas targets but any communications about its targets as well.
The European Commission has received a deluge of 16,000 applications in the first round of calls for Horizon 2020, its €80 billion research and innovation programme.
“We were over-subscribed by a factor of nine,” said Robert-Jan Smits, director-general of DG Research and Innovation.
