L'urgence de ralentir - YouTube

Comment, dans un monde où l’accélération s’impose en règle, des initiatives émergent pour redonner sens au temps et inventer de nouveaux modèles pérennes ? "...

 

"Course suicidaire et inconsciente", selon Edgar Morin, l'accélération financière et technologique, déconnectée du rythme de l’homme, mène notre système à l'épuisement et vers des catastrophes tout à la fois écologiques, économiques et sociales. Mais alors que des algorithmes accentuent de manière exponentielle la spéculation financière hors de tout contrôle, aux quatre coins de la planète des citoyens refusent de se soumettre aux diktats de l'urgence et de l’immédiateté, pour redonner sens au temps. En Europe, aux États-Unis, en Amérique Latine ou encore en Inde, Philippe Borrel (Un monde sans humains ?) est allé à la découverte de ces initiatives, individuelles et collectives, qui proposent des alternatives basées sur d’autres paradigmes.

Reprendre le contrôle

Au Rajasthan, le Barefoot College fondé par Bunker Roy recrute des femmes de milieux ruraux pour les former à l'ingénierie solaire ; les villes de Romans-sur-Isère et de Bristol ont mis en place une monnaie locale pour résister à la toute-puissance des banques ; à Ithaca, au nord de New York, des coopératives font leur preuve pour relocaliser l'économie... À rebours du "train fou" du modèle dominant, ces alternatives citoyennes, qui rejoignent les analyses de philosophes, sociologues, économistes et scientifiques, pourraient bien être les pionnières du monde de demain. Autant de gestes qui remettent l’homme au cœur du système.

Robin Good's curator insight, August 27, 4:03 AM



MonitorBook is a new free web app which allows you to track changes to any piece of content on any web page available online. 


MonitorBook is very easy to use. You just install the bookmarklet available in the Instruction section of the site and then as soon as you are on a page where you want to track changes to something, you click the bookmarklet and then select the piece of content on the page that you want to track. That's it.

If you go back to your web account on MonitorBook you will find inside the section called Trackings the page element you have selected to track and any possible changes that have happened to it.


I look forward to see RSS output and more advanced options to decide every how long to check and what to report.


Handy for anyone needing to keep a page under tabs though without an alerting system the key benefit may be lost.


Free to use.


Pro version available.
Pricing info: https://monitorbook.com/#pricing

Breakthrough in light sources for new quantum technology

Breakthrough in light sources for new quantum technology | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Copenhagen, Denmark (SPX) Sep 01, 2014 -

Electronic circuits are based on electrons, but one of the most promising technologies for future quantum circuits are photonic circuits, i.e. circuits based on light (photons) instead of electrons. First, it is necessary to be able to create a stream of single photons and control their direction.

Researchers around the world have made all sorts of attempts to achieve this control, but now scientists at the Niels Bohr Institute have succeeded in creating a steady stream of photons emitted one at a time and in a particular direction. The breakthrough has been published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

The Park Slope Food Coop is a member-owned and operated food store-- an alternative to commercial profit-oriented business. As members, we contribute our labor: working together builds trust through cooperation and teamwork and enables us to keep prices as low as possible within the context of our values and principles. Only members may shop, and we share responsibilities and benefits equally. We strive to be a responsible and ethical employer and neighbor. We are a buying agent for our members and not a selling agent for any industry. We are a part of and support the cooperative movement. We offer a diversity of products with an emphasis on organic, minimally processed and healthful foods. We seek to avoid products that depend on the exploitation of others. We support non-toxic, sustainable agriculture. 

We respect the environment. We strive to reduce the impact of our lifestyles on the world we share with other species and future generations. We prefer to buy from local, earth-friendly producers. We recycle. We try to lead by example, educating ourselves and others about health and nutrition, cooperation and the environment. 

We are committed to diversity and equality. We oppose discrimination in any form. We strive to make the Coop welcoming and accessible to all and to respect the opinions, needs and concerns of every member. We seek to maximize participation at every level, from policy making to running the store. 

We welcome all who respect these values.

Booming electric car sales under fire in Norway

Booming electric car sales under fire in Norway | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Ministers in Norway -- a major and rich oil-producing country -- are under increasing public pressure to reduce perks and tax breaks for booming electric car sales.

"It's become a problem," said Erik Haugstad, a bus driver in the Oslo region who complains about the numerous electric cars clogging bus lanes, which they have the right to use in Norway.

The cars are also exempt from urban toll payments or fees at public parking spaces, where they can recharge batteries without cost.

But above all, they are exempt from Norway's sky high sales taxes and VAT.

Tapping Brainwaves: Will Our Brains Soon Be Hackable?

Tapping Brainwaves: Will Our Brains Soon Be Hackable? | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

It’s 2035. As you head out for work, you’re sure to grab your BSH – Brain Security Hat - before heading off to work. The hat has become part of the cultural image of anyone who works in a field with sensitive, proprietary information; as it protects your brain against brain hackers.

Does that sound like the opening scene of some dystopian science fiction novel? Well, considering recent developments in brainwave sensing technologies, the idea of a future where a person’s brain can be hacked is a worthy one to consider.

Why?  Because the concept of “sensing” brainwaves is fast becoming a mainstream activity in modern society. EEG technology has been around for years, but what is the nature of that brain activity, and the electrical signature at the scalp that it produces?

If metal electrodes can detect them, then why couldn’t a remote device as well? What could those signals tell someone about what you are doing, thinking, or what your intentions are? In this article, we’ll talk to a board certified neurologist, an information systems expert, and a former CIA neuroscientist, to better understand whether there could be a future threat where hackers may one day attempt to remotely “hack” into your brain.

New Statesman | What the jihadists who bought “Islam for Dummies” on Amazon tell us about radicalisation | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Pretending that the danger comes only from the devout could cost lives.

 

Can you guess which books the wannabe jihadists Yusuf Sarwar and Mohammed Ahmed ordered online from Amazon before they set out from Birmingham to fight in Syria last May? A copy of Milestones by the Egyptian Islamist Sayyid Qutb? No. How about Messages to the World: the Statements of Osama Bin Laden? Guess again. Wait, The Anarchist Cookbook, right? Wrong.

Sarwar and Ahmed, both of whom pleaded guilty to terrorism offences last month, purchased Islam for Dummies and The Koran for Dummies. You could not ask for better evidence to bolster the argument that the 1,400-year-old Islamic faith has little to do with the modern jihadist movement. The swivel-eyed young men who take sadistic pleasure in bombings and beheadings may try to justify their violence with recourse to religious rhetoric – think the killers of Lee Rigby screaming “Allahu Akbar” at their trial; think of Islamic State beheading the photojournalist James Foley as part of its “holy war” – but religious fervour isn’t what motivates most of them.

Den digitala valutan Bitcoin utmanar de traditionella pengarna som regleras av stater världen över. Bitcoinvalutan har minskat i värde rejält på senare tid, och samtidigt som den förbjudits i vissa länder, har det blivit allt tystare kring Bitcoin bland medierna. Men enligt forskare är det här bara början på de digitala valutornas utveckling och troligen kommer bitcoinsystemet utvecklas till något bortom en vanlig valuta.
