What a work of art!
It might not be a Stradivarius, but the violin you see above is pretty impressive on its own merits. For starters, it's 3D printed and only has two strin

A very cool Volvo creation for the other drivers on the road. 
Volvo has created a temporary spray that makes bicyclists visible when in the line of car headlights during those perilous nighttime hours.

Checking out this site, now- I actually referenced Inayatullah a few years ago and just rediscovered his work. 
Futures studies, scenarios, and analysis of global social, environmental, and cultural issues by Sohail Inayatullah, Ivana Milojevic and the world's leading futurists are featured on this site. Articles, reports, interviews and PDF downloads comprise the massive content on this site.

Seems as if all of that misogynist trolling might have been for naught

Wow- IBM, back on the map. #technology #AI
We haven't talked about Numenta since an HP exec left to join the company in 2011, because, well, it's been keeping a pretty low-profile existence. Now,

Hello everyone. Wikipedia is looking for ideas to address their gender-gap. I submitted a 'grant-proposal' to create an awareness campaign on campus about a) how faculty could use Wikipedia to develop student search, research, and citation capabilities, and b) how students can use Wikipedia in their scholarship and to become contributors to a shared history.
If you like the idea, please endorse- which will increase our chances of winning the grant. There is also a space for feedback, if you'd like to contribute some other ideas toward this project. There are only 15 days left in this Inspire Campaign. 
Thanks!

§Project idea[edit]. §What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]. While information literacy is being targeted by accrediting bodies, these accrediting bodies have yet to recognize digital literacy skills. Therefor, many colleges are late to address these skills on campuses.

Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Student, Higher Education Administrator, TEDxBuffalo
Introduction
I am currently working on my Ph.D. My focus has shifted from studying just DIY learning to looking at the many disruptions that are affecting higher education today. I still love to discuss DIY and informal learning (such as MOOCs) and alternative forms of credit (such as Open Badges). When I’m not thinking about the future of higher education, you can find me buried in school work or helping to put on TEDxBuffalo.

Maurice came highly recommended from a friend. I brought in 3 skirts and 3 pairs of pants. The pants were nice Calvin Klein pants that were part of suits. They needed to be hemmed and I asked that they be taken in at the bottom. The skirts, on the other hand, needed to be completely reconstructed. Wow- I am still amazed at the job Maurice did. The one skirt that I bought in Scotland on a whim was high wasted and really unflattering. I haven't worn it in 4 years and would have never worn it again, unless this work was done to it. Now, I cannot wait to wear it! The other skirts were given to me by a friend who used to wear them in her youth. They were also a high-wasted style and he did an amazing job fitting them to me. The pants look AMAZING. I really love a skinny, more tailored pant leg, and he was able to work miracles with these pants. I will be back!!

I have had several messages here, and after finding Brittany, this is the only place that I will go for a message now, unless I am traveling. Joie is also fabulous. I highly recommend a deep tissue. I originally thought it was just for athletes, but it is also for people who spend most of their time slumped over a computer.

I absolutely loved my stay at Kingsgate. I can't get over how friendly the staff was- like everyone (the front desk was so helpful, my shuttle driver told us about some awesome spots in the city, such fun bartenders!, and I had fun conversations with my housekeeper daily). I stayed for 9 days for my residency and the food and service was amazing at every event. Everything was always so clean, they have great food options, and a lovely outdoor area outback. Great workout facility too! (with passes to the UofCincy gyms as well) I highly recommend your stay here!

I have never had the problems with service some people are reporting in. This is a downtown Buffalo diner. The decor isn't fancy, the people aren't nice until you get to know them and they get to know you, and the food is outstanding. I happen to love the little waitress who waits on us, then again, I am there quite a few times a year. :)
