Strange Laws Around the World

by Tessa on March 11, 2015

What to know before you go? Travel is the most exciting thing but check out the infographic bellow because you may get in trouble without even knowing you did something wrong. For example: Did you know that in Thailand there is a rule against leaving home without underwear, or that in Minnesota you are not allowed to hang male and female clothes on the same washing line? In Venice, Italy it’s illegal to feed the pigeons and in New Zealand it’s illegal to fly with a rooster in a hot air balloon. Go figure.

10 Healthy Food Options For Fussy Eaters

by Tessa on March 5, 2015

Solving Feeding Problems in Creative Ways
What could you do to make a fussy eater try new food? One way to make meal time enjoyable is to jazz up meal presentation. Fun food designs can help. To try and solve feeding problems, you may want to introduce foods that taste similar to what your child already eats. Don’t force her into trying foods she is not ready to accept. Choose foods that are similar in color, texture, and taste. If your kid loves baked potatoes, follow with potato pot pie, mash, and mash with gravy. If you exhaust all options, it may be time to seek professional help.

Hacks and Data Breaches

by Tessa on March 2, 2015

Hacker Attacks Result in Huge Financial Losses and Dead Game Avatars
Hackers have the capabilities to breach corporations and retail and tech giants such as T-mobile, AOL, Zappos, Adobe, and many others. Hacker attacks are to blame for huge financial losses. But some moves seem quite strange. Three years ago thousands of Warcraft avatars dropped dead all of a sudden. We also have medical records that were kept hostage by hackers. They posted a ransom note to inform the hospital that they would release the records in exchange for an undisclosed amount. Creepy indeed.

26 Facts About Google You Didn’t Know

by Tessa on February 26, 2015

Google: Past Experience and New Frontiers: Klingon was added as an interface language the same year Yahoo offered to buy Google. This (Klingon) is hardly surprising given the fact that Google maintains the world’s largest network of translators. And then, some features become popular while others are not well perceived by users. But there are exceptions. The “I feel lucky” feature is rarely used but surprisingly people wanted to keep it. Certain behaviors and trends are more predictable, however. Google found that email users fall in 6 general categories and Gmail accommodates them all. What a lucky find!

Africans rate AIDS as one of the greatest threads while people in the Middle East are afraid of ethnic and religious hatred. And some fear that Europe will become Eurabia. Muslim population growth and immigration worry many. Others are concerned that liberal values are forced on ordinary people. They are anti-abortion and anti-gay and support the death penalty. Physician-assisted suicide should be abolished, they say. And it is OK for citizens to bear and keep arms. In other parts of the world like Latin America, people are afraid of nuclear arms. We worry about different things. Real or unreal.

Essential Cheat Sheet for Social Media Images

by Tessa on February 19, 2015

New Rules for Images for Better or Worse
Social networks have changed their rules for images and photos. Instagram, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, and other social media sites have new rules for profile images, image posts, pin sizes, thumbnails, cover images, and what not. Some social media networks scale photos, others require a square format. Network giants such as Facebook and LinkedIn use crowd-censoring strategies to try eliminate or reduce the amount of videos, photos, and images reported as false. This strategy has been adopted to combat fake stories about free products, great promos, conspiracy theories, celeb deaths – you get it! The new rules aren’t so bad after all.

Sundance 2015

by Tessa on February 17, 2015

This infographic offers a glimpse into one of the largest and most important film festivals that features films submitted by independent filmmakers, including shorts, dramatic features, and documentary features.

Growth in Popularity
While the number of accepted films has been fairly constant, more and more films get distribution deals. The goal is to promote the work of independent filmmakers and storytellers and showcase international and domestic films. Sundance brought attention to many films, including 500 Days of Summer, Little Miss Sunshine, Better Luck Tomorrow, In the Bedroom, Super Troopers, and many others. The works of filmmakers such as Edward Burns, James Wan, Steven, Soderbergh, and Thomas Anderson got wider attention thanks to Sundance. Not surprisingly the number of people who worked on features submitted and accepted substantially grew with time. Some 37 countries were represented in 2014. The number of international and domestic films also grew while the number of first-time filmmakers and world premiers remained fairly constant. At the same time, Sundance films became Best Documentary nominees and received Oscar nominations. Sundance has grown from a low-profile event for budget movies to one of the key film festivals. Filmmakers got distributions deals from New Line Cinema, Miramax Films, and other studios. Sundance has become a major event and many festivals are organized in Park City – The Park City Film Music Festival, Tromadance, Lapdance, and others.

Featured Movies, Awards, Programs, and Initiatives
The festival features U.S. and international documentaries, shorts, and documentary premierеs. Special events are also organized such as the Day of the Rain, the Short Film Challenge, and movie screenings. The festival also embraces initiatives such as the Women’s and Diversity Initiatives. The Women’s Initiative seeks to promote female filmmakers and gender equality in US cinema. The initiative also seeks to provide women with knowledge and know-how to empower them to structure, negotiate, and close deals. The Diversity Initiative aims to reach out to and support filmmakers across gender, ethnicity, genre, geographic region, and orientation. A number of workshops are also held. There are also benefit events, special screenings, and labs. The Native Program, for example, aims to support Native American artists and filmmakers. The program features native shops and fellowships. The 2015 Sunday festival also features a number of documentaries and shorts such as Charlie Victor Romeo, Above All Else, Water & Power, Valley Of Saints, and Sweet Dreams. There are other screenings as well such as Utah Community Screenings and Shorts Tour. Movies featured on the festival gathered numerous awards, among which the Documentary Special Jury Award, the Cinematography Award, Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, U.S. Grand Jury Prize, and many others. The economic impact on Utah should be emphasized as well. The economic impact on Utah’s economy has grown substantially – last year alone, the festival brought over $86 million into Utah’s economy. What is more, the festival generates local and state taxes and supports local jobs. Attendance is within capacity with thousands of people spending money on food and lodging.
