A FIELD OF DANDELIONS

Originally posted on MY WALL:

Walk with dandelions

Our yard was full of dandelions .

The bees were in paradise –
they buzzed from flower to flower
and  savored  an endless sea of nectar.

My feet adored the sunbeams
shooting from the ground
glowing golden under the setting sun.

Laughter rent the air
while children  puffed on the silken globes
sending  clouds of gossamer
sailing and disappearing into forever.

Innocence and beauty
if capable of being touched
were all over our yard
but then they had to be mowed
for they did not belong.

golden dandelions

From ghostly moors to the longest stretch of continuous coastline in Britain, the county of Cornwall is a mysterious and legendary place, home to the famously haunted Jamaica Inn on Bodwin Moor, memorialized by Daphne du Maurier. Du Maurier also set her famous short story The Birds, later adapted by Alfred Hitchcock, and her novel Rebecca in Cornwall, which was her home. This ancient Celtic nation, of the same blood as the Welsh and the Bretons, is also the birthplace of the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. It is renowned for splendid gardens, such as the Lost Gardens of Heligan, once the personal gardens of the Tremayne family, and the Eden Project, a philanthropic greenhouse garden built in an old clay mine. These gardens are more than wonderful places to grow plants; they are playgrounds for the…

Innovation: not just about ideas in a lab, it’s now open and collaborative

by Nitin Dahad

The term ‘innovation’ has become so common in daily language that it is easy for policymakers to forget what it actually means as it covers so many different aspects of the economic growth agenda.  In the past innovation might have been about ground-breaking new research, technology, or processes developed in a lab where engineers or scientists sat in a well-partitioned division that focused on ‘blue-sky’ thinking.

But now innovation is different. Companies don’t invest in such departments, but instead might acquire innovative ideas or companies. Today we have ‘open innovation’, and it is often more collaborative. The latter was demonstrated well in an experiment last week conducted at the Long Term Care Revolution Live event in London, hosted by a bank in the city of London and organized by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, in conjunction with the Digital Health & Care Institute.

Journalism Vs Development In Technology

Originally posted on Mar Lynn the Petite Potato says...:

The advancement of communication technology, such as the internet which has allowed quick and easy access to news and information online has potentially affected traditional media. The ability to report instantly, as well as technology convergence in gadgets that has allowed photos and videos to be spread almost immediately is something which traditional media largely lacks. Despite that, traditional media and the advance technology both aims for the same thing in journalism, which is to report and inform.

In this digital era, research has suggest that technology impacted journalism in terms of performance, content, structure and relationship of the organization and public (Pavlik, 2000). Being said, innovation is not always a threat that can’t be fixed. John V Pavlik suggested four principles that can act as a guideline for ensuring the innovation of journalism in news media continued to be viable in todays’ technology (Pavlik J. V., 2013).

Firstly, research is vital…

The surprisingly simple way Utah solved chronic homelessness and saved millions

The story of how Utah solved chronic homelessness begins in 2003, inside a cavernous Las Vegas banquet hall populated by droves of suits. The problem at hand was seemingly intractable. The number of chronic homeless had surged since the early 1970s. And related costs were soaring. A University of Pennsylvania study had just showed New York City was dropping a staggering $40,500 in annual costs on every homeless person with mental problems, who account for many of the chronically homeless. So that day, as officials spit-balled ideas, a social researcher named Sam Tsemberis stood to deliver what he framed as a surprisingly simple, cost-effective method of ending chronic homelessness.

Give homes to the homeless.

Tsemberis’ research, conducted here in the District and in New York City, showed this wouldn’t just…

Internet of Things: The Next Era of Computing Innovations

It was a perfect evening for barbeque. We had a few friends over for dinner, and I had bought really nice rib-eye steaks for the occasion. I heated the grill to 400F and slapped on the steaks. Five minutes later, I opened the grill to flip the steaks and…NO GAS! ARGH! I was so upset with myself. With tail tucked, I excused myself to buy gas, but on the way, a thought occurred to me, “Why didn’t the gas cylinder tell me that it needed a refill?” Where is the Internet of Things when you really need it?Internet of Things

I am sure some entrepreneur is already working on this idea. This is not a futuristic dream. Soon my gas distributor will know when my cylinder is about to run out, and he will replace it with a new one without me lifting a finger. Needs like this, from everyday conveniences to…
