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.

An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments

An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
This book is aimed at newcomers to the field of logical reasoning, particularly those who, to borrow a phrase from Pascal, are so made that they understand best through visuals. I have selected a small set of common errors in reasoning and visualized them using memorable illustrations that are supplemented with lots of examples. The hope is that the reader will learn from these pages some of the most common pitfalls in arguments and be able to identify and avoid them in practice.

Making research more accesible

Making research more accesible | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

NYU Wagner hosts a series of talks as part of the 2014 Henry Hart Rice Urban Policy Forum: Neighborhood Inequality and the New Social Transformation of the American City. Back in April, I attended the talk of Robert Sampson, professor of Social Sciences at Harvard University. Sampson presented results from a longitudinal research study he has been working on in Chicago to learn about crime, disorder, neighborhood effects, and the social structure of that city. The combination of a well-structured narrative and appropriate use of supporting visualisations as slides made the lecture highly engaging and educative. The lecture also evidenced the important role of information design in the communication of a complex subject (e.g. research data and findings), and how a well-developed solution broadens understanding.

How Successful People Handle Toxic People

How Successful People Handle Toxic People | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

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.

Does a set of data make you feel more comfortable? More successful? Then your interpretation of it is likely wrong. In a surprisingly moving talk, Susan Etlinger explains why, as we receive more and more data, we need to deepen our critical thinking skills.

Writing in a Foreign Language - Aliette de Bodard

English isn’t my first language–and not so by a large margin. I started learning English at the beginning of high school, at 11 years or so, but that was school stuff: I didn’t really start practising it on a regular basis until I turned 16, and didn’t start writing in it until about 18. Most…

Seeing Is Believing: Visual vs. Linear Content

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

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.
