Today is #AutismAwarenessDay.  This is a good post that describes #Autism.
 
What is autism?
Autism is a developmental disability that causes problems with social skills and communication. Autism can be mild or severe. It is different for every person. Autism is also known as autism spectrum disorders.

What are some signs or symptoms of autism?
Children with autism may have problems with communication, social skills, and reacting to the world around them. Not all behaviors will exist in every child. A diagnosis should be made by the child's doctor or other professional with experience in working with children with autism.
Possible signs and symptoms are outlined below.

Communication:
Not speaking or very limited speech
Loss of words the child was previously able to say
Difficulty expressing basic wants and needs
Poor vocabulary development
Problems following directions or finding objects that are named
Repeating what is said (echolalia)
Problems answering questions
Speech that sounds different (e.g., "robotic" speech or speech that is high-pitched)

Social skills:
Poor eye contact with people or objects
Poor play skills (pretend or social play)
Being overly focused on a topic or objects that interest them
Problems making friends
Crying, becoming angry, giggling, or laughing for no known reason or at the wrong time
Disliking being touched or held

Reacting to the world around them:
Rocking, hand flapping or other movements (self-stimulating movements)
Not paying attention to things the child sees or hears
Problems dealing with changes in routine
Using objects in unusual ways
Unusual attachments to objects
No fear of real dangers
Being either very sensitive or not sensitive enough to touch, light, or sounds (e.g., disliking loud sounds or only responding when sounds are very loud; also called a sensory integration disorder)
Feeding difficulties (accepting only select foods, refusing certain food textures)

How is autism diagnosed?
It is important to have your child evaluated by professionals who know about autism. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs), typically as part of a team, may diagnose autism. The team might include pediatricians, neurologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and developmental specialists, among others. SLPs play a key role because problems with social skills and communication are often the first symptoms of autism. SLPs should be consulted early in the evaluation process. There are a number of tests and observational checklists available to evaluate children with developmental problems. The most important information, however, comes from parents and caregivers who know the child best and can tell the SLP and others all about the child's behavior.

An article about iCan House and its recent fundraiser, which is headed by +Kim Shufran.

The iCanHouse is a non-profit in Winston Salem, NC that helps people with mid-to-high functioning Autism.

Spritz is pretty cool. http://www.spritzinc.com/
 
This new software enhancement just blew my mind. It actually works. I can read and digest information at 600 words per minute, and it takes up such little screen space you could add it almost anywhere. I think I have just entered the matrix. Try the demo yourself! Really! http://www.spritzinc.com/ #Spritz   #Reading   #Fast

Chromecast works with Linux (unofficially)
#chromecast #linux
 
Yay, Chromecast from Chrome on Linux.

1. Install the chrome extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-cast/boadgeojelhgndaghljhdicfkmllpafd/related?hl=en

2. # iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 32768:61000 -j ACCEPT

et voila. They tell me it's not officially supported etc, but works a charm.

p.s. I know, I know, you all have Macbooks ;/

Stayed here over a dozen nights. Service, cleanliness, etc are consistently great. Sofa bed in suite is terrible. Everything else is good or great.
