Dutch studio Raw Color's prismatic visual research experiments | Communication design | Scoop.it
Paper shredders and desk fans are some of the more banal things Raw Color turns into head-turning visual installations for its experimental research around colour. The Dutch design studio, led by Christoph Brach and Daniera ter Haar, has been invited to stage a solo show at The Aram Gallery for London Design Festival (opening 19 September) which promises a look at their cross-disciplinary approach. Here, the pair discuss choosing colours like flavours, and how they use self-initiated projects to support their client work.

How DNA could store all the world’s data and more

How DNA could store all the world’s data and more | Communication design | Scoop.it
Modern archiving technology cannot keep up with the growing tsunami of bits. But nature may hold an answer to that problem already.

 

For Nick Goldman, the idea of encoding data in DNA started out as a joke. It was Wednesday 16 February 2011, and Goldman was at a hotel in Hamburg, Germany, talking with some of his fellow bioinformaticians about how they could afford to store the reams of genome sequences and other data the world was throwing at them. He remembers the scientists getting so frustrated by the expense and limitations of conventional computing technology that they started kidding about sci-fi alternatives. “We thought, 'What's to stop us using DNA to store information?'”

LEARN

It’s no longer enough for teachers to get a credential and then sit back and teach the same content year after year.

 

Richardson says to be part of modern learning, teachers need to actively educate themselves about the context students live in and how they can improve as educators.

“There’s never been a more amazing time to be a learner,” Richardson said. “How are we in education not running towards that in our own personal lives and embracing that?”

It’s not just about connecting on Twitter with other educators or asking for professional development about technology. If teachers are waiting for a planned PD about something they are probably already stuck. “You have to have the disposition of an eight-year old to find your own learning,” Richardson said.

Goldilocks zone alone not sufficient for search of habitable planets

Goldilocks zone alone not sufficient for search of habitable planets | Communication design | Scoop.it

For decades, it has been thought that the key factor in determining whether a planet can support life was its distance from its sun. In our solar system, for instance, Venus is too close to the sun and Mars is too far, but Earth is just right. That distance is what scientists refer to as the "habitable zone," or the "Goldilocks zone."

It also was thought that planets were able to self-regulate their internal temperature via mantle convection—the underground shifting of rocks caused by internal heating and cooling. A planet might start out too cold or too hot, but it would eventually settle into the right temperature.

A new study, appearing in the journal Science Advances, suggests that simply being in the habitable zone isn't sufficient to support life. A planet also must start with an internal temperature that is just right.

A Fascinating Film About the Last Day of Hot Metal Typesetting at the New York Times

A Fascinating Film About the Last Day of Hot Metal Typesetting at the New York Times | Communication design | Scoop.it

On July 2, 1978 the New York Times made a significant technological leap when they scuttled the last of 60 manually-operated linotype machines to usher in the era of digital and photographic typesetting. When working at 100% efficiency with an experienced operator the Linotype machines could produce 14 lines per minute cast on the spot from hot lead. That number would increase to 1,000 lines per minute the very next day using an array of computers and digital storage.

China is preparing to unveil the world's largest telescope which is due to be put into operation at the end of September.  Construction of the Five Hundred Meter Apeture Spherical Telescope, or FAST, has entered its final phase in Pingtang County, China's Guizhou province, reports the People's Daily Online.  The giant dish, which took five years to build, is the size of 30 football fields, measuring 1,640 feet in diameter. The Chinese authority relocated 8,000 residents from the area to make room for the ambitious equipment, built to boost the global hunt for extra-terrestrial life.
