Web Designer’s Arsenal: a Collection of Free Useful Websites

Web Designer’s Arsenal: a Collection of Free Useful Websites | Global Insights | Scoop.it

 

A designers are always lacking materials to create a design. Even if time is running out, it’s better to exceed the deadline than do the bad job. The musician has musical instruments to give the world to hear the sounds that play in his head; an artist has a brush, paint and easel to paint a picture that he has in mind, but what about the web designer? A designer has a set of favourite websites with free useful stuff in his bookmarks.

 

This web designer’s arsenal helps him to win a fight with hard-to-pleased clients and implement all the amazing ideas in order to create a truly great design.

 

Today I’m going to share with you a collection of free useful websites from my own bookmarks. Of course, I often use a Google search to find some stuff i need. However, why can’t you go to the particular website and know that you will find needed things there for sure. Today’s collection is not just ordinary freebies. To be honest, I spent a lot of time to collect all those websites and all of them have helped me to create really good design at one time. So, take a look at them, choose and download.

Where Do You Stand on Social Media Censorship?

The Economist want's to know where you stand on Social Media Censorship:

 

Option 1:

Authoritarian governments often shut down social networks. If democracies do the same, they can hardly preach to dictators.Rescue services increasingly rely on social networks for real-time information during emergencies. Any restrictions could cost lives.Nobody supports blanket censorship for books, films or the press any more. Social media are no different in principle from other media.

 

Option 2:

Social media can be used to organise mass violence: instant messaging services fuelled the London riots.False rumours can spread like wildfire and sow panic. Tweets about gunmen attacking schools in Mexico allegedly led to 26 car crashes.Parents can choose to block adult websites on a child’s computer, but they can’t currently block pornography on a social network.

Deborah McNelis's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:26 PM

Children need the opportuntiy for imaginative play to develop the highest thinking areas of the brain responsible for self regulation and executive function.

Tess Sorensen's comment, April 6, 2013 3:34 PM
"Play is created by children, not adults." Adults, learn to step back and let the children lead. Do not ever think that you are only a teacher, you must remember to be a learner also.

Childhood stimulation is key to brain development, study finds

Childhood stimulation is key to brain development, study finds | Global Insights | Scoop.it

Twenty-year research project shows that most critical aspect of cortex development in late teens was stimulation aged four.

 

An early childhood surrounded by books and educational toys will leave positive fingerprints on a person's brain well into their late teens, a two-decade-long research study has shown.

 

Scientists found that the more mental stimulation a child gets around the age of four, the more developed the parts of their brains dedicated to language and cognition will be in the decades ahead.

 

It is known that childhood experience influences brain development but the only evidence scientists have had for this has usually come from extreme cases such as children who had been abused or suffered trauma. Martha Farah, director of the centre for neuroscience and society at the University of Pennsylvania, who led the latest study, wanted to find out how a normal range of experiences in childhood might influence the development of the brain.

 

Farah took data from surveys of home life and brain scans of 64 participants carried out over the course of 20 years. Her results, presented on Sunday at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in New Orleans, showed that cognitive stimulation from parents at the age of four was the key factor in predicting the development of several parts of the cortex – the layer of grey matter on the outside of the brain – 15 years later.

Evolution of Compassion

Evolution of Compassion | Global Insights | Scoop.it

Compassion like love has a spectrum and has a number of stages and levels. The general term learned in society about compassion is somehow different from a more expanded version of it. And also it differs from society to society and the modernity of it.

 

In general, compassion is viewed as a deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the desire to alleviate the pain. Here, compassion is a form of emotion, a feeling that is acting and flowing. An active emotion can be used both as a positive force and a negative one.

Storytelling Illustrations Show the Beauty of Childhood

Storytelling Illustrations Show the Beauty of Childhood | Global Insights | Scoop.it

Durban, South-Africa based illustrator Colwyn Thomas creates some of the most beautiful illustrations of childhood we've ever seen. He begins each design as a pencil drawing and then converts it into vector lines. Finally, he adds colors in Photoshop, using scanned in textures such as coffee stains or various papers until he achieves his desired look.

 

The first illustration in this post is called The Whale. When asked by Empty Kingdom what he wanted its viewers to take away from it he said, "The relationship between the wild and man is an important one for me. I occasionally work as a guide in a big five wilderness area and there are encounters one has there, with the game, with the place itself, that give me a clear sense of being something other than human. As if there was something to define ourselves as first, before we classified ourselves as human. There’s such wonder and humility in finding your self a part of the world as opposed to an observer of it. So in The Whale it’s not so much a whale and a little human making separate observations of one another, but two…creatures sharing a moment."
