Why I Teach Online

Why I Teach Online | Communication design | Scoop.it
Having the option to work remotely and asynchronously was a godsend. I figured my online students would have no idea if I were moderating online discussions or grading papers while sitting next to a spouse hooked up to an Oxaliplatin IV. During this family crisis, I knew I would miss being in the same room with students, and the instantaneous give-and-take of a physical classroom. I only ever envisioned online teaching as a short-term reassignment.

My online career allows me to be a primary caregiver for my loved one. This aspect of the work wasn't what I'd anticipated. In the end it was a God send.

All the talk of digital disruption turning incumbents into dinosaurs and unicorns into masters of entirely new domains might lead you to think this is already an old narrative — so 2016. In fact, digitization has barely started, and neither has the accompanying upheaval. Digital technologies and processes have penetrated only about 35% of the…

The World’s Most Powerful Women In Tech

The World’s Most Powerful Women In Tech | Communication design | Scoop.it

There was a time in history when only men were given the chance to control almost everything in the society. They held leadership positions. They made important family decisions. They earned the respect of everyone in the community.

Today, we have seen that women are gradually stepping up. In fact, we have seen a lot of women on the top post of their country’s governments. The same thing is true in the tech industry. This used to be a male-dominated area. Until now, men make up a huge percentage of the workforce. The good thing is that we can now see powerful women as tech industry leaders.

The fight for gender equality continues, especially now. It is just great to see that we are now moving positively forward. The society has evolved in many ways. We can now entrust women leadership positions that were deprived of them in the past.

The reason why we have such a drastic change in society is also because women have proven that they are worth it. They have shown that they can do whatever men can. Today, you can take leadership positions not because of your gender, but because of your capabilities.

If you are undeniably great, promotion is just around the corner. For these women on top positions of tech industries, they have shown that they have the right skills to rise above the top in the tech world. They have also shown exemplary leadership skills.

These women are truly inspiring. If you want to be inspired more, go ahead and take a look at the infographic below. It contains information about women who hold top positions in various companies. You can learn from their stories and be amazed at how they have come so far in their chosen career.

Whole-body vibration may be as effective as regular exercise

Whole-body vibration may be as effective as regular exercise | Communication design | Scoop.it

If you’re overweight and find it challenging to exercise regularly, now there’s good news: A less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration (WBV) can mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of regular exercise — at least in mice — according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s journal Endocrinology.

 

Lack of exercise is contributing to the obesity and diabetes epidemics, according to the researchers. These disorders can also increase the risk of bone fractures. Physical activity can help to decrease this risk and reduce the negative metabolic effects of these conditions.

After the ISS: Big Plans for Commercial Space Habitats

After the ISS: Big Plans for Commercial Space Habitats | Communication design | Scoop.it

Have you ever dreamt of living in outer space? Since the development of spaceflight, the off-Earth lifestyle has been limited to the select few aboard the International Space Station. For nearly 19 years, the station has played host to rotating teams of highly-trained international astronauts.

 

The ISS, however, may be nearing the end of its tenure in low-Earth orbit.1 While the U.S., Russia, Europe, Canada and Japan have all extended their involvement in ISS operations until 2024,2 the venerable space station may be facing decommission shortly thereafter. This doesn’t mean that we’re abandoning the idea of living in space—in fact, because of they way they are exiting, it signals precisely the opposite.

 

Soon, orbiting living spaces will no longer be the exclusive domain of agency-affiliated astronauts. Like so much in space, habitats are going commercial. By the 2020’s, NASA’s intention is to transition low-Earth orbit to the private sector—in terms of both supply and demand.3

Your family tree might contain a few curious revelations. It might alert you to the existence of long-lost third cousins. It might tell you your 10-times-great-grandfather once bought a chunk of Brooklyn. It might reveal that you have royal blood. But when family trees includes millions of people—maybe even tens of millions of people—then we’re beyond the realm of individual stories.
