How Technology Is Leading Us Into the Imagination Age

"In many ways, the future is unpredictable. A report by the World Economic Forum reveals that almost 65 percent of the jobs elementary school students will be doing in the future do not even exist yet. Combined with technological automation and the disappearance of traditional jobs, this leaves us with a critical question: how can we survive such a world?

The answer may be imagination.

Initially coined by Rita J. King, the imagination age is a theoretical period beyond the information age where creativity and imagination will become the primary creators of economic value. This is driven by technological trends like virtual reality and the rise of digital platforms like YouTube, all of which increase demand for user-generated content and creativity. It is also driven by automation, which will take away a lot of monotonous and routine jobs, leaving more higher-ordered and creative jobs..."

The problem is not the Russians, it’s us. We’re getting played because too many Americans are ill equipped to perform the basic functions of citizenship. A huge percentage of the population can’t tell fact from fiction. A huge percentage is also clueless about the basic laws of the land. Trump is a symptom; the breakdown in this democracy goes beyond the liar in chief.

OnePlus 3 And 3T Get Android 8.0 Update

It's not often that old phones get the latest Android software -- and even some new phones don't even have it yet...like the Galaxy S8 and LG V30. This update will definitely improve the viability of owning a OnePlus 3 or 3T for at least the next year. I love seeing OnePlus really crush it when it comes to software updates now -- they had a history of virtually non-existent software updates. Seems like they upped their game when they launched the OnePlus 3.

The Google Assistant on phones, now in Spanish and Italian

Google Assistant is already available on phones in a number of languages around the world and now we’re adding a few new ones to the roster—Spanish in the U.S., Mexico and Spain as well as Italian in Italy. So now you can say “Ok Google” and ask the Assistant to play your favorite song, tell you about the weather, navigate home and more. Or try something fun and say “¿Ok Google, sabes nadar?”

Our goal is for the Assistant to be available to help you get things done, no matter what language you speak, what device you’re using or what question you’re asking. Today’s update is another step in that direction, as these new languages join English in Australia, Canada, U.S. and U.K.; Portuguese in Brazil; French in Canada and France; German in Germany; Japanese in Japan; and Korean in Korea. These new languages will soon automatically be available on eligible Android phones running Android 6.0 or higher with Google Play Services, and later in the year, they’ll also be available on iPhones.
Ci sentiamo presto.

Three of a kind

Golden langur (Trachypithecus geei)

Bhutan

Three young siblings chilling in the early morning sun in the canopy of a huge tree!

They were part of a sizable group busy with their morning activities and what fun it was watching them! Several newcomers were clinging on to their mums that were grouped in another part of the treetop. A very healthy group indeed and a joy to see that the forest is able to support so many generations and thus a large group of the endangered species.

The adult seemed to be in no hurry to begin foraging, so the young langurs eventually seemed rather impatient. I too was able to observe them in this tree for such a long time that I decided to move on.

Big Falls of the West Fork

I went to chase fall color along the West Fork this weekend and caught this scene at the Big Falls.

Fall colors are happening across north Texas. Our first round has passed and round two is taking off. The next two weeks should be good for the red oaks and Japanese maples.

"It's not just our eyes that play tricks on us, but our ears too. That's the finding of a landmark collaboration that provides new evidence that oscillations, or 'strobes', are a general feature of human perception. While our conscious experience appears to be continuous, the study suggests that perception and attention are intrinsically rhythmic in nature".

#SpaceScience image of the week celebrates #Integral.

ESA’s Integral space #observatory has been orbiting Earth for 15 years, observing the ever-changing, powerful and violent cosmos in #gamma rays, #X-rays and visible light. Studying stars exploding as supernovas, monster black holes and, more recently, even gamma-rays that were associated with gravitational waves, Integral continues to broaden our understanding of the high-energy Universe. This image visualises the orbits of the spacecraft since its launch on 17 October 2002, until October of this year. #SpaceScience
