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.

Either way, they create unnecessary complexity, strife, and worst of all stress.

 

Studies have long shown that stress can have a lasting, negative impact on the brain. Exposure to even a few days of stress compromises the effectiveness of neurons in the hippocampus—an important brain area responsible for reasoning and memory. Weeks of stress cause reversible damage to neuronal dendrites (the small “arms” that brain cells use to communicate with each other), and months of stress can permanently destroy neurons. Stress is a formidable threat to your success—when stress gets out of control, your brain and your performance suffer.

There's a Better Way to Teach Critical Thinking: 9 Rules of Thumb

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 22, 12:03 PM

I suspect critical thinking predates the Ancient Greeks. Without critical thinking, humans might not have gotten to that point in history. A great take away from the article is the importance of questioning. A second take away, perhaps hidden away, is the importance of questioning what we think critical thinking is and is not and engaging in conversations.

The survey will be disseminated in the top 10 Internet languages.

 

Co-researcher duties will include collecting data from the questionnaires answered, analyzing the data, communicating the findings, and providing language-specific support to the project activities. This collaboration will be divided into three stages:

1) survey development (October 2014); 
2) survey dissemination (from November 2014 to January 2015);
3) survey data analysis (from February to June 2015).

 

It is essential for collaborators to be able to work as part of a team, have Office software skills, have working knowledge of English and (preferably) be native speakers of one of the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian or Spanish.

Collaborating with VISTAC is a good opportunity for developing research experience, networking and enhancing your quantitative data analysis techniques.

 

Parties interested should send the following by October 15, 2014 to Marta Pacheco Pinto at egma@sapo.pt.

 

Short bionote (max. 250 words), containing your name, affiliation, contact, and specification of language skills, as well as mentioning main research interests, projects and, if any, selected publications.

Seeing Is Believing: Visual vs. Linear Content | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

"In order for our learners to see how designing information changes how it is viewed, the students this year placed their visual infographics side-by-side with their linear notes to see the transformation. It was the “ah ha” moment, when they could examine how the delivery of content mattered and how the deliberate choices in font hierarchy, color selection, and placement changed the way others perceived the ideas."

Event registry | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Event Registry [1, 2] is a system that can analyze news articles and identify in them mentioned world events. The system is able to identify groups of articles that describe the same event. It can identify groups of articles in different languages that describe the same event and represent them as a single event. From articles in each event it can then extract event's core information, such as event location, date, who is involved and what is it about. Extracted information is stored in a database. A user interface is available that allows users to search for events using extensive search options, to visualize and aggregate the search results, to inspect individual events and to identify related events.

The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

8 Ways to Be Happy and Productive in Your Home Office

8 Ways to Be Happy and Productive in Your Home Office | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Working from home is everyone's dream, right? If that's true, then why did 60 percent of the employees who participated in a Stanford University work-from-home experiment opt to go back to corporate HQ?

 

The 2013 study offered a sampling of employees in the air travel and hotel booking industry an opportunity to work from home for nine months. Surprisingly, many of them had a very lonely experience. After only a few months, 50 percent of the volunteers and 10 percent of the non-volunteer group asked to return to their cubicles.

 

Loneliness and lack of social interaction were cited as the No. 1 reason for abandoning home offices, but these aren't the only drawbacks. How can you have your cake and eat it, too? Because I've successfully worked from home for nearly 16 years, I consider myself an expert on the topic.
