Gambling is inevitable | Casino Net Game

Life itself is probably the biggest gamble and this makes us fall in love with gambling. There is something to it that draws us back closer. Maybe it's the excitement and the fulfillment we feel with every single bet we make.

אין גבול- אפילו הקזינו עלול להעלם, ובמקום מבנה מעושן מלא באורות ואלכוהול, כל אחד יוכל להמר מהבית לבוש בפיג'מה

Time-Space Compression

Time-Space Compression | the disappearance of distance | Scoop.it

miri:david harvey about time- space compression.

 

This expression is also known as ‘time–space convergence’. It is concerned with the impact of new information and communication technologies such as the internet, email and mobile phones on the individual both in the private and public spheres. These technologies have essentially reduced the distances between people and places thus resulting in ‘time-space compression’. It has therefore become easier to move information across space; speeding-up the pace of life while abolishing traditional spatial barriers. Geographer David Harvey (1989) introduced this term in The Condition of Postmodernity, where he makes reference to the concept as “processes that so revolutionize the objective qualities of space and time” (240). He further states that “as spatial barriers diminish so we become much more sensitized to what the world’s spaces contain” (294).

The sun never sets... on the Facebook Empire

The sun never sets... on the Facebook Empire | the disappearance of distance | Scoop.it
How Facebook connections mirror old empires EIGHT years ago Facebook launched as an online social network connecting a small college community from a dorm room at Harvard University.

 

These graphics show how in a post-colonial world, former colonies are still socially intertwined in a cultural network that mirrors the empires of yesteryear. Why are these modern social networks so similar to imperial patterns? What economic explanations are there for these patterns? What is the cultural impact?

e-learning in russia

e-learning in russia | the disappearance of distance | Scoop.it

Russia is the largest country in the world by the territory. The dispersed geography makes training and development a bigger challenge for companies which are present in regions across Russia, for a number of reasons. Different time zones alone can be a challenge. Additionally, regional offices often have limited access to the physical and intellectual recourses available in the central offices which are typically located in big cities (population of more 1 million people). Another challenge is that clients are located in far away districts, and employees can spend a significant amount of time traveling in order to reach them e.g. in far-away regions such as Siberia. This geographic anomaly creates a challenge for organizing training in the traditional understanding, and thus interests me in terms of whether e-learning can provide an effective and efficient means of training and learning delivery
