Short Walking Breaks May Reverse Negative Effects of Prolonged Sitting

Short Walking Breaks May Reverse Negative Effects of Prolonged Sitting | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Short walking breaks could reverse the adverse effects of prolonged sitting, according to a recent study.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"There is plenty of epidemiological evidence linking sitting time to various chronic diseases and linking breaking sitting time to beneficial cardiovascular effects, but there is very little experimental evidence," Saurabh Thosar, leader of the study, said in a statement. "We have shown that prolonged sitting impairs endothelial function, which is an early marker of cardiovascular disease, and that breaking sitting time prevents the decline in that function."

Get ready for hybrid thinking

Get ready for hybrid thinking | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Two hundred million years ago, our mammal ancestors developed a new brain feature: the neocortex. This stamp-sized piece of tissue (wrapped around a brain the size of a walnut) is the key to what humanity has become. Now, futurist Ray Kurzweil suggests, we should get ready for the next big leap in brain power, as we tap into the computing power in the cloud.

The Maker movement makes its mark

The Maker movement makes its mark | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The next industrial revolution is right around the corner, and it's going to be bigger than the internet—or so says a growing army of hackers, designers, artists, and entrepreneurs. Across the country,
Carlos Fosca's insight:

El “maker movement” es para muchos una subcultura del DIY (Do It Yourself) que está cobrando hoy más que nunca una gran relevancia gracias a tecnologías como la impresión 3D o la manufactura aditiva y que, en mi opinión, vendrá a cambiar radicalmente el mundo entero. La cultura de “hazlo tú mismo” no está más relacionada con artículos de bricolaje, o pequeñas instalaciones domésticas, sino que está incorporando desde el desarrollo de productos muy personalizados con un alto componente de diseño a complejas soluciones tecnológicas que implican la colaboración de muchos expertos reunidos física o virtualmente.

 

Pero el “maker movement” no se queda en el ámbito de la creación de productos o nuevos servicios sino que se constituye en una forma mucho más estimulante de desarrollar aprendizajes en todos los niveles y crear capacidades de emprendimiento como nunca antes se ha pensado.

El “maker movement” es sin duda otro fenómeno disruptivo de nuestra era, quizás más disruptivo que la propia internet, aunque mucho más potenciado a través de este último.

Prosthetic Hand Plans by 3D Print Designers

Prosthetic Hand Plans by 3D Print Designers | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Thingiverse is a universe of things. Download our files and build them with your lasercutter, 3D printer, or CNC.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Esta es una de las cosas extraordinarias que ocurren cuando confluyen una tecnología disruptiva como la impresión 3D y una corriente igualmente disruptiva como es el Open Access, creando así un universo de productos que son compartidos por miles de usuarios para que ellos mismos los puedan fabricar (Do It Yourself). Pero cuando todas estas tendencias se dirigen a mejorar la calidad de vida de las personas, adquieren su máxima relevancia. Este el caso de esta plataforma donde creadores (makers) de todo el mundo han compartido una variedad de planos de prótesis para manos  que pueden ser usadas y fabricadas en cualquier rincón del mundo y que pueden cambiarle la vida (a muy bajo costo) a un niño, joven  o adulto con este tipo de discapacidad.

Los taxistas logran que la justicia alemana prohíba la aplicación Uber

Los taxistas logran que la justicia alemana prohíba la aplicación Uber | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
La compañía, también ilegal en Bélgica, responde que continuará con sus actividades
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Uber, el aplicativo que conecta pasajeros con conductores, bajo la modalidad de "coche compartido", "Mitfahren, "car pooling" ha sido prohibido en Alemania. Un duro golpe para iniciativas que están creciendo en todo el mundo gracias a las facilidades que brinda la tecnología. Sin embargo, las razones del gobierno alemán son igualmente validas debido a que se trata de un sistema de transporte irregular que no tiene los permisos correspondientes y que tampoco ofrece una seguridad ni al conductor ni al pasajero.
