Cam Newton Goes Quiet, Storms Out Of Press Conference After Super Bowl Loss

Justin Bieber showed up on stage at the party I was at last night, danced, grabbed three girls from the crowd and left
PIRatE Lab's insight:

This is exactly how to NOT communicate.  It goes without saying that such behavior would guarantee you never get that interview/job.  Apparently when you get paid 10s of millions a year, you can act like a spoiled 5 year old...but you guys don't have that luxury.

 

Be professional.  Always!

Galaxy of cover songs

Galaxy of cover songs | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it

The panorama view shows the 50 top songs as individual planetary systems with the original work as the sun. Each planet represents a version of the song and it’s appearance indicates characteristics including genre, popularity, tempo, valence, energy, and speechiness. The radius of its orbit around the sun shows the years between the publication dates. This view allows you to compare the structure and density of the constellation of different songs from a high-level perspective.

PIRatE Lab's insight:

This is really cool.  I'm just thinking of all the crazy cool visualization stuff you could do for ecological systems, field methods, etc.

Game: Guess the correlation

Game: Guess the correlation | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it

Guess the Correlation is a straightforward game where you do just that, and it's surprisingly fun. You get a scatterplot and you guess the correlation coefficient. That's it. If you're off by too much, you lose a life, and if you're almost spot on, you gain a life. If you're somewhat right, you get a coin. Bonus points for streaks of correct guesses.

Have at it.

PIRatE Lab's insight:

Several of my students could use some more help with suggestions for searching for specific references.  I therefore popped off this screencast for my capstone students so they might be more effective in searching for particular references over the break.  Others might find it useful too.

 

I created one screencast that goes into some basics of Google Searching, etc. but spent the lion share of my time in an overview of ResearchGate.  ResearchGate is a relatively new social media platform that seems to be increasingly useful for both finding pdfs of articles as well as for connecting you with new, relevant research publications.  I think it will be particularly useful for our students just starting out on the hunt and seeking to deepen their scholarly understanding of a given topic/field.

The longer screencast is here: https://youtu.be/rhbLWZbRJVM

The excerpt with just the ResearchGate intro/overview is here:  https://youtu.be/lO331ix_EVk

Imaginary Geographies

Imaginary Geographies | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
This fabulous 1927 map shows some of the key reasons why the movie industry flourished in Los Angeles–California’s physical geography is incredibly diverse. As the industry was emerging in the first half of the 20th century, they didn’t have massive budgets to travel the world to give their locations a great degree of geographic accuracy it their set locations. Southern California was the ideal home base for a wide range of locations that could physically approximate so many environments and ecosystems. This cost saving strategy had more than economic ramifications; this strategy reinforced many spatial (and cultural) stereotypes in the movies that powerfully influenced how people conceptualized what these places were like. These geographies of cinematic imagination, created for economic purposes, shape our regional perceptions.
