A Writing Studies MA produces digital compositions:
I continue to think a great deal about how new media has grown the possibilities of our collective academic work. As the director of a Masters in Writing Studies Program at Kean University, I often reckon with how our traditional forms of scholarship are merely one reference point when considering how to produce and create new knowledge. As a result, I have for some time been a proponent of a more expansive sense of what writing might entail in t...

Communication between minds separated by distance is possible
Telepathy is the transmission of information from one person to another without using any of our known sensory channels or physical interaction. A brain -to -brain communication study organized by Harvard Medical School last year has revealed that human brains can “talk” directly to one another despite being physically separated by thousands of miles.

Conducted by a group of robotics engineers and neuroscientists from across the globe, the study proves that information can be transmitted between two human brains through leveraging different passageways to the mind.

The group of participants that took part in the study was between 28 and 50 in age. Electrodes were attached to one person’s scalp on the sending end, to monitor brain currents and were then hooked up to a computer that interpreted the signal. On the receiving end subjects were tasked with interpreting the message using the computer-brain interface. When the messages were sent, the receivers experienced brain stimulation; flashes of light in their peripheral vision and they were able to decipher simple messages.

This study represents only a small step toward engineering telepathy, which might take years - or decades - to perfect. Ultimately, the goal is to remove the computer middleman from the transmission equation and allow direct brain- to -brain communication between people.

Think twice about joining a sorority. Will your student loan cover it?
 
Don't join a sorority before you read this article
Looking to join a sorority? You’ll need time and money to spare. And don’t be late for meetings and events (there’s a fine for that).

This looks awesome!
This giant and eye-catching bed is designed by OGE Group that looks alike a bird's nest, of which the wooden nest is filled with comfortable egg-shaped pillows. The modern and unique birdsnest is not only furniture, also a playground for your living room.
