Genetic Roulette - The Gamble of our Lives [Video 1h 25min]

Are you and your family on the wrong side of a bet?

When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

 

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves...

Please Explain: What is Changa Tuki? | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

"Take a walk around Petare, Venezeula’s biggest slum, and you’ll soon notice colorful posters at every turn bearing  the words “X-Dimension” in metallic, flame-embossed fonts straight out of your Take a walk around Petare, Venezeula’s biggest slum, and you’ll soon notice colorful posters at every turn bearing the words “X-Dimension” in metallic, flame-embossed fonts straight out of your Microsoft Word ClipArt folder. It’s the name of a popular soundsystem run by local dance music pioneer DJ Yirvin. Locally, it’s known as “La Bestia de Caracas,” (“The Beast of Caracas”).

“For their anniversary party they packed a club with 5,000 people,” relates Francisco Mejia, alias Pacheko, a Venezuelan DJ/producer. “5,000 people! I’ve never had more than a few hundred people come to my parties downtown. These guys are famous in the ghetto and completely ignored by the Venezuelan media. It’s crazy! But in Venezuela, there’s the barrio culture and the middle class culture, and they don’t know anything about each other.”

 

DJ Yirvin is part of an elite group of barrio producers who have been making larger-than-life, speaker rattling, 4×4 dance music in Venezuela since the late 90s, while somehow staying under the radar both in Venezuela and abroad. Since house music arrived and took root here, a constellation of homegrown flavors of dance music have sprung up, including the genres street house, raptor house and hard fusion – collectively known under the umbrella term changa tuki. After over a decade of being ignored, the cheesy yet delicious beats of changa tuki are finally starting to generate interest beyond the barrio, sparked by a new documentary called Quien Quiere Tuki? (Who Wants Tuki?!), produced by Pacheko’s Abstractor collective and video producers Montro Contenidos, as well as a smattering of tuki comps and releases coming out of Europe. And it’s about flipping time.

Bioclimatic House in the Canary Islands, Spain

Bioclimatic House in the Canary Islands, Spain | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

This bioclimatic house, by Estudio José Luis Rodríguez, is a self-sufficient structure integrated into the terrain of the Canary Islands, a landscape characterized by a continuous terracing of the extreme topography.

 

In response to this site, the design features a basalt stone wall that supports a light structure of plywood, galvanized steel walls and glass.

The building's orientation is determined by solar radiation; photovoltaic panels produce electricity, in order to achieve zero carbon emissions. The living area is connected to the outside with a space that is protected from sun and wind, while a wall located in the sleeping area to the north has a high thermal mass for passive temperature control.

The design also aims to reduce its ecological footprint on the use of materials and construction systems by using local materials (basalt wall insulation covered with volcanic lapilli, for example), environmentally certified materials and no harmful elements, such as VOC compounds in synthetic paints and varnishes.

The Rise of EDM | Music Business Journal | Berklee College of Music

The Rise of EDM | Music Business Journal | Berklee College of Music | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

The Rise of EDM by Danny Feinstein and Colin Ramsay

 

Electronic Dance Music (EDM) is surging to the forefront of mainstream tastes. If you have turned on the radio, watched TV, or attended a music festival in the last several years you have likely noticed DJs and producers flooding the market. Acts like Skrillex, Deadmau5, and David Guetta have emerged from the EDM movement and achieved international popularity on an unprecedented level.


EDM has only recently stepped into the spotlight. The genre, however, is hardly young. It began as an underground movement in the 1980s. Similarly to how hip-hop crossed over into the mainstream in the late 1990s and 2000s, EDM is now coming of age, and in a big way. A generation of music fans are shifting their musical gaze from the hip-hop driven popular music that dominated the 2000s, to the polished sounds of house, trance, dubstep, glitch, breaks, and the dozens of other sub-genres that fall under the umbrella of EDM.
It is also important to note the role of social media in catalyzing the growth of EDM. For a genre so inherently tied to technology, the Internet is a natural marketing platform. Tech-savvy producers and DJs unsurprisingly flourish in the online space. Danny Whittle, brand director of dance club Pacha notes, “Our musical genre embraced the Internet, all other genres fought it.”6 As the digital music space continues to expand, EDM arguably harnesses the Internet’s potential more effectively than other genres.


DJs were early adopters of the free music model, recognizing that their low cost of touring made live appearances the more lucrative revenue stream. As a result they won the hearts of legions of fans that most likely would have pirated their music anyways. The strength of the EDM online culture has even led to one of the very few successful alternatives, albeit genre-specific, to iTunes: Beatport. Beatport is a popular music store specifically for DJs that provides digital music formats and music discovery tools.

Santiago Nunez's curator insight, October 8, 2015 9:42 PM

I grew up listen to hip-hop and pop. Early on when EDM was just starting to get popular, that's when I really feel in love with it. Now, not only love to listen to EDM, go to EDM festivals, I love to produce it and make EDM. Believe it or not, EDM is changing the Music Industry.

Tyanna Kimarri Holmes's curator insight, March 13, 10:02 PM

EDM music ( also known as Dubstep) has risen in the past four years. I used to call Dubstep techno music, but Dubstep has transpired way beyond the 80’s techno and 70’s disco. This new genre has opened the door for many DJ’s. Not only have Dj’s made a comeback, but they have made a revolution. Skrillex, David Guetta, Diplo ( famous EDM DJ’s) really know how to throw a party and show everyone a good time. With EDM music comes a lot of knowledge. It is more than just playing with turntables and dropping “sick” beats. You have to know all of the equipment, how to mix music, when to add the bass drop, and so much more. With Skrillex, David Guetta, and Diplo you would not know these things, because they make it look easy.

Internet of food: Arduino-based, urban aquaponics in Oakland

It's called aquaponics- a gardening system that combines hydroponics (water-based planting) and aquaculture (fish farming). It's been hailed as the future of farming: it uses less water (up to 90% less than traditional gardening), doesn't attract soil-based bugs and produces two types of produce (both plants and fish).


Aquaponics has become popular in recent years among urban gardeners and DIY tinkerers, but Maundu- who is trained in industrial robotics- has taken the agricultural craft one step further and made his gardens smart. Using sensors (to detect water level, pH and temperature), microprocessors (mostly the open-source Arduino microcontroller), relay cards, clouds and social media networks (Twitter and Facebook), Maundu has programmed his gardens to tweet when there's a problem (i.e. not enough water) or when there's news (i.e. an over-abundance of food to share).
Maundu himself ran from agriculture in his native Kenya- where he saw it as a struggle for land, water and resources. This changed when he realized he could farm without soil and with little water via aquaponics and that he could apply his robotics background to farming.

 

Today he runs Kijani Grows ("Kijani" is Swahili for green), a small startup that designs and sells custom aquaponics systems for growing food and attempts to explore new frontiers of computer-controlled gardening. Maundu believes that by putting gardens online, especially in places like West Oakland (where his solar-powered gardens are totally off the grid), it's the only way to make sure that farming remains viable to the next generation of urban youth.

TrustCloud gives you the confidence to make smart decisions in the Sharing Economy.

 

It’s a movement as dramatic as the Industrial Revolution: the consumer experience is rapidly evolving, with sharing becoming a more fulfilling experience than owning. Strangers can now leverage technology and access an exploding number of sites to share cars, rooms, items and tasks.

 

The Sharing Economy, also called Collaborative Consumption, connects people to their communities, saves money, and is environmentally-conscious. Learn more about Collaborative Consumption here.

 

TrustCloud provides a tool to build and maintain portable Trust between strangers and sharing sites, simplifying and improving the Sharing Economy experience and shaping its evolution.

 

"The notion of connecting trustworthy strangers is an untapped market. Social, mobile and location technologies are coming together to make efficiency and trust. Technology creates the social glue for trust to form between strangers."
Rachel Botsman, Wired 2011

 

Some Definitions:

 

Collaborative Consumption (aka The Sharing Economy)
A term coined by Rachel Botsman used to describe an economic model based on sharing, swapping, bartering, trading or renting access to products as opposed to ownership.

 

Data Vapor
The traces left online of activities and behaviors on social networks and sharing sites.

 

Federated Identity
The means of linking a person’s electronic identity and attributes, stored across multiple social networks and sites.

Jodhpur - India's Blue City

Jodhpur - India's Blue City | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

DB: The aesthetics of architecture within a society not only reveal the communities interpretation of what is considered beautiful or pleasing in appearance but also differentiates between what is considered sacred or important. The symbolic significance of aesthetics in colors, designs and a place of residence can be indicative of socioeconomic standing is within society and what the community values.  Jodhpur, India is well known for the beautiful wave of blue houses that dominate the landscape of a rather dry region. However, it is believed that these blue houses originally were the result of ancient caste traditions. 

 

Brahmins (who were at the very top of the caste system) housed themselves in these “Brahmin Blue” homes to distinguish themselves from the members of other castes. Now that the Indian government officially prohibits the caste system, the use of the color blue has become more widespread. Yet Jodhpur is one of the only cities in India that stands steadfast to its widespread aesthetics obsession with the color blue which is making it increasingly unique, creating a new sense of communal solidarity among its residence.

 

Questions to Consider: How has color influenced the cultural geography of this area?  How are the aesthetics of this community symbolic of India’s traditional past, present and possible future?

Alec Castagno's curator insight, December 17, 2014 11:27 PM

The blue color shows how traditional Hindu society has influenced the overall aesthetic of the area. Because the blue signified the elite class of the society, everyone took to the color and the entire city reflects its popularity. The fact that almost every building in the city is painted the same color shows how dominant the Hindu society and culture was.
