10 rules of photo composition (and why they work) | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

 

n photography, it’s not just what you shoot that counts – the way that you shoot it is crucial, too. Poor photo composition can make a fantastic subject dull, but a well-set scene can create a wonderful image from the most ordinary of situations.

 

With that in mind, we’ve picked our top 10 photo composition ‘rules’ to show you how to transform your images.

Our Ability To Smell Depends On Our Culture | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Common wisdom holds that smell is the least important sense for our species. But that conclusion may be flawed because we've ignored non-Western cultures. New research on a small tribe in southern Thailand challenges that assumption.

How to Buy Ebooks From Anywhere and Still Read Them All in One Place

How to Buy Ebooks From Anywhere and Still Read Them All in One Place | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Most ebook sellers try to lock you into a particular ecosystem. If you don't mind buying from the same company every time, this isn't too bad, but you lose the ability to comparison shop, as well as making it difficult to switch apps. Fortunately, there's a way around this problem.

Talk: Communicating science and technology visually

Data visuals are everywhere, from the most trite like bar charts to the most complex like network graphs, and computer animations and simulations. While the diversity and abundance of data visuals is clearly a result of our technological revolution, data visuals are, above all, the products of people working for other people. This is nowhere more evident than in science and technology, where the safety and well-being of entire populations is at stake. However, once we shift our focus from data visuals to the human element, human and cultural factors take precedence over the visuals and even the science and engineering that warrant the visuals. What factors are those? How do they affect the conceptualization, production, and communication of data visuals? What does this mean for those involved in the practice, research, teaching and learning of science and technology? To answer these questions, I will report on the results of a pilot study the Visualizing STEM Research Synergy Cluster at NMT did with science and technology students. I will relate the results to research in data visualization, science and technology studies (STS), and cultural and human factors. And I will discuss implications of the pilot study for the visual communication of science and technology.

To create for the ages, let's combine art and engineering | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
When Bran Ferren was just 9, his parents took him to see the Pantheon in Rome — and it changed everything. In that moment, he began to understand how the tools of science and engineering become more powerful when combined with art, with design and beauty. Ever since, he's been searching for a convincing modern-day equivalent to Rome's masterpiece. Stay tuned to the end of the talk for his unexpected suggestion.

De la localisation à la délocalisation : enjeux professionnels | Érudit | Meta v55 n4 2010, p. 661-673 |

Comme tout secteur de l’économie concurrentielle, celui de la localisation a subi les effets des délocalisations. Le présent article s’attache à observer les reflets que renvoie une activité professionnelle (la localisation) passée à travers le prisme d’un des faits économiques majeurs de notre temps (la délocalisation) : externalisation, expatriation, internationalisation, mondialisation… Il s’agit, dans un premier temps, de définir précisément ce qu’il faut entendre par localisation, avant d’examiner comment l’exercice concret de cette spécialité s’est trouvé et se trouve bouleversé par son quasi-antonyme. L’analyse critique de ces reflets permet d’identifier les enjeux et les tendances qui sous-tendent ce marché professionnel et leur influence sur celui de la traduction professionnelle dans son ensemble.

Between Ape and Artilect

Between Ape and Artilect | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

During 2010-12, noted AI researcher and long-time Humanity+ Board member Ben Goertzel conducted a series of textual interviews with researchers in various areas of cutting-edge science — artificial general intelligence, nanotechnology, life extension, neurotechnology, collective intelligence, mind uploading, body modification, neuro-spiritual transformation, and more. These interviews were published online in H+ Magazine, and are here gathered together in a single volume. The resulting series of dialogues treats a variety of social, futurological and scientific topics in a way that is accessible to the educated non-scientist, yet also deep and honest to the subtleties of the topics being discussed.

 

Between Ape and Artilect is a must-read if you want the real views, opinions, ideas, muses and arguments of the people creating our future.

Advice From The Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire in History

Advice From The Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire in History | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

I had the opportunity to attend the keynote presentation of Sara Blakely, Founder of Spanx.  In her one-hour talk, Sara highlighted her fascinating journey from launching a start-up with $5000 in savings to becoming the youngest self-made female billionaire in history. Anyone who’s heard Sara’s story knows it’s exhilarating and motivating, but to see her live brings a new dimension to her story.  She’s fresh, exuberant, funny and completely passionate about helping women feel and look their best, and about reforming all of the misguided trends that have kept in women in painful and ill-fitting undergarments over the last 50 years.

The blessing of being a US citizen...create your success. I work with a lot of start-ups and entrepreneurs. The difference between those who succeed and those that don't is fear and no funding. Overcome fear by finding experts you can rely on and spend wisely.

The first 2 sentences of this article sum it all up:

"On average, your readers will only read 28% of the words on a page.

Can you tell your whole story in 2-3 sentences? Probably not."
