Too Hot to Handle: Io and Enceladus

first_imgTwo moons in the solar system are turning up the heat on beliefs that they could be billions of years old.Jupiter’s Io: The most volcanic body in the solar system, Io, continues to stump planetary scientists.  “A new study finds that the pattern of heat coming from volcanoes on Io’s surface disposes of the generally-accepted model of internal heating,” announced a Science Daily article (see JPL press release) summarizing new findings published in Icarus.  “The heat pouring out of Io’s hundreds of erupting volcanoes indicates a complex, multi-layer source.”  Further reading suggests that tidal heating remains insufficient to account for the volcanic activity.  “The fascinating thing about the distribution of the heat flow is that it is not in keeping with the current preferred model of tidal heating of Io at relatively shallow depths,” said Ashley Davies.  One good puzzle deserves another: “Instead, the main thermal emission occurs about 40 degrees eastward of its expected positions.”  So is the heating deep or shallow?  Both, said Dennis Matson of JPL.    Then the team really poured the heat on:A mystery has also emerged. The team found that active volcanoes accounted for only about 60 percent of Io’s heat. This component mostly emanates from flat-floored volcanic craters called paterae, a common feature on Io. But where is the “missing” 40 percent? “We are investigating the possibility that there are many smaller volcanoes that are hard, but not impossible, to detect,” said Veeder. “We are now puzzling over the observed pattern of heat flow.“These findings show that Matson and his JPL colleagues have made little progress explaining how Io’s volcanoes could last for billions of years since our first story on Creation-Evolution Headlines 12 years ago (see 8/16/2000).Saturn’s Enceladus:  Saturn’s geyser moon Enceladus (a.k.a. Cold Faithful) continues to baffle planetary scientists who need to keep the activity going billions of years (see photo gallery on PhysOrg from Cassini’s 19th flyby May 3).  Now, as reported by New Scientist, PhysOrg and other media outlets, the geysers produce a plasma unlike anything seen before: tiny dust grains that pick up negative ions from water molecules pumped out the geysers.  Moreover,  “It seems that Enceladus provides most of the plasma in the magnetic bubble, or magnetosphere, surrounding Saturn,” an astonishing influence for an Arizona-diameter moon to have over billions of cubic miles. Has this been going on for 4.5 billion years?  Planetologists are typically reluctant to invoke special conditions that allow phenomena to commence near the time humans became available to observe them.Observers of planetary scientist psychology are sure to notice two conditioned responses peculiar to that sub-population of Homo sapiens: (1) an eagerness to connect any mention of water with life, and (2) a reluctance to discuss the age implications of small active bodies like Io and Enceladus.  Peculiar, indeed.

Facebook At Work: Helpful or a Hazard?

first_imgGuide to Performing Bulk Email Verification sarah perez A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… It seems we’re always going back and forth on the subject of Facebook’s usefulness at work. Some would argue that Facebook is no longer just a time-wasting application for poking people and throwing sheep – it’s a critical part of their daily communications with co-workers, colleagues, and others within their industry. In fact, earlier this month, we reported on a study that showed the growing acceptance of social networking applications in the workplace. The study noted that nearly half of I.T. professionals now saw Facebook as one of the apps that had business value. Yet today, there’s new information being released that seems to say something different about the state of social networking applications in the workplace. According to Nucleus Research, Facebook causes a 1.5% decrease in employee productivity. Facebook at Work = Lost Productivity?According to the Nucleus Research survey, employers are losing 1.5 workers per 100 in employee productivity to the supposed time-wasting activity known as “Facebooking.” To reach that number, the company surveyed a random sampling of 237 office workers. The findings revealed that nearly two-thirds of those who visit Facebook do so during business hours and they stay on the site for an average of minutes per day when they do. Despite what you’ve heard touted about the necessity of Facebook in today’s business world, those responding to this survey overwhelmingly admitted they didn’t see any business reason for using the site. In total, 87% of respondents basically said their time on Facebook at work had no business-related purpose. Of course, given the small sample size of this survey, it’s hard to form any definitive conclusions…although that hasn’t stopped Nucleus Research from doing so. They’re suggesting that companies “evaluate their Facebook policies and the cost to the organization…as today blocking Facebook may actually result in a 1.5 percent gain in productivity.” A Second OpinionWe think that Nucleus Research isn’t seeing the bigger picture here, so we’d like to counter their research with some findings from the University of Melbourne. U of M professor Dr. Brent Coker also surveyed a small sample of office workers (300 to be exact) and came to a rather different conclusion. He found that people who took small breaks between tasks were 9% more productive than their colleagues who did not. “It gives them a chance to reset their concentration,” says Coker. That means that companies who block access to social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook are actually inadvertently decreasing employee productivity. Besides, we hate to break the news to Nucleus Research, but employees have always found ways to take these sorts of small mental breaks at work. Before social networks – heck, before computers, even – workers would typically gather around the water cooler for some mindless banter. Others take cigarette breaks, head to the vending machines, or stop by a co-worker’s office for chit-chat as they make their way through the office. Employees don’t need Facebook to goof off, you see. But out of all the ways to take a break at work, Facebook really seems to be the least offensive – especially if the employee has built up a work-related network of friends and colleagues on the site. Who knows? They might even find themselves chatting about work while on Facebook!At the end of the day, though, this isn’t a simple black or white issue. Sometimes using Facebook may be productive for employees, sometimes it’s not. Either way, the knee-jerk reaction from organizations shouldn’t be to simply block access to the social network. Perhaps businesses should just focus on rewarding the employees who perform their jobs well and disciplining those who don’t do their work? That seems like a more reasonable way to stimulate employee productivity, don’t you agree? Tags:#Facebook#Trends#web last_img read more

Facebook Home Could Be a Pain, Unless You Really Love Facebook

first_imgFacebook allowed the press to look at both the HTC First as well as phones running the Home software following the press event. While many weren’t allowed to touch the phone, product managers encouraged me to play around with the downloadable Home app running on a Galaxy S3. I also tested the First, albeit briefly.Home Feels Like HomeHome interjects itself from the first moment you pick up your phone. On the unlock screen, Home displays the first entry in what Facebook calls its Cover Feed: full-screen, vertically-oriented photos with text from a status message overlaid. Swiping left and right brings up new entries.You can think of Cover Feed as an Instapaper-like view of your News Feed, emphasizing photos and status messages. You won’t see video, group posts, or even ads — yet. But Facebook promises almost monthly updates, so plan on additional features to be added in the future. Who wants to bet that ads will one day be one of those additions?Hey! Apps! Nope, they’re shortcuts.Clearly, this “home” slice of “Home” is the easiest to use, and the most enjoyable. Even if you have a just a few seconds, you can quickly swipe left and right to bring up new updates, double-tap an image to Like it, and add a comment by clicking the icon at the bottom of the screen. Sliding from image to image was effortless, at least on both the First and the Note II.Note that this is Facebook’s domain: there are no widgets, no app shortcuts, and no Google search bar at the top of the screen. If you want those, you’ll have to work for it.Home also displays a small, circular icon at the bottom of the screen with an image of your face inside it, as a starting point for further navigation. If you want to launch a Web browser, swipe right; swipe left to launch Facebook Messenger, and swipe up to access your “apps”.Swiping right brings up the stock Web browser — no problems there. Swiping left brings up Messenger, where you can text and message your friends. If you’re on a cellular connection, those Messages will be sent via SMS, which highlights them in blue. (Or so the product-demo person at the event told me. No, I don’t see why it couldn’t send Facebook messages via cellular data, either.)But Facebook Home also includes both notifications and something called “Chat Heads,” which can follow you from app to app. If you happen to be listening to Spotify, for example, and your friend pings you, their “head” — a circular icon with their picture — shows up and you can begin chatting. You can engage in multiple conversations with different friends via different “tabs,” each keyed to a chat head.Messenger looks the same.Home also sends you notifications for friends who Like your posts, which will pop up on your screen. Home has a nifty trick for dismissing them all at once: just hold down your finger on the screen, and they’ll converge like hungry fish. They then can be “thrown” off of the screen. “Chat Heads”I suppose some may be nonplussed by chat and notification icons popping up randomly, but most Facebook addicts will probably love these features. It’s when you bring apps into the equation that things get a little awkward.You Can Log Off, But You Can (Almost) Never LeaveWhy? Because accessing other apps implies that you want to look away from Facebook. Facebook doesn’t want you to leave; part of the value Facebook ascribes to itself is its engagement with the user. When you swipe up to access apps, you don’t really access “apps” — a small window of “shortcuts” to the apps themselves appear. And at the top of the window is the familiar “status” and “photo” shortcuts.In other words, you haven’t actually left Home; you’re just in its antechamber.Home does allow you to access your full list of apps, arranged alphabetically. At the very bottom is a “More” icon. Clicking that takes you back to your home screen — except this time, you’re within the Android/TouchWiz/HTC Sense environment. Congratulations — you’ve escaped.As you might have figured out, Home wants to monopolize your attention, so that any other function your phone wishes to perform — such as notifying you of an email, for example — gets treated as an intrusion.Options screen.No E-Mail For You!This is where experience on phones like the HTC First diverge from phones built around the Home app. The First notifies users of incoming emails (or Google Talk requests, as I saw) via notifications. On a phone which uses a Home app, the Android status bar at the top of the screen does the same thing, before being banished by Home. Functionally, it’s almost the same thing. But inside Home, you tend to forget about the “outside world” of Android.This, to me, feels like the “catch” of Facebook Home. Chief executive Mark Zuckerberg was asked whether he felt that Google would tolerate Home, since it essentially domnates the screen real estate that Google has traditionally regarded as its own.It’s “theoretically possible,” Zuckerberg said, that Google would go back on its “promise of openness”. Zuckerberg also described Apple as a partner, but iOS as a “very controlled environment” — the implication being that Home on top of iOS is a pipe dream.Google representatives said that they consider Home to be a “launcher,” a way of recasting Google’s Android. Does it bury Google content to the point that it’s hidden? I think so. So far, it doesn’t matter: “The Android platform has spurred the development of hundreds of different types of devices,” Google said in a statement. “This latest device demonstrates the openness and flexibility that has made Android so popular.”But it’s significant, I think, that Facebook has already shown that its mobile apps can be downloaded outside the Google Play store. If in fact Google tries to ban Facebook, Facebook may be able to pursue alternative means of distribution. Should you download Home? Absolutely. You’ll need to most recent updates to Facebook and Messenger to do so. But make sure that when you launch Home, you choose the option to run Home once, to try it out. Home will blow you away the first time you use it, but I think its appeal will wane for all but the most social users. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Facebook#mobile Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces markhachman Facebook Home is something we’ve never seen before. It’s far more than just an app and beyond just a skin, but something less than an operating system. It doesn’t replace Google’s Android. It’s not a skin like Samsung’s TouchWiz. But installing it will radically transform your Android phone — and not necessarily for the better.What Home boils down to is this: if you’re obsessed with Facebook, Home is for you. But if you’d like to use your Android phone for something else — like checking email, for example — you’ll probably find Home more trouble than it’s worth.Facebook launched Home at a press event on Thursday. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, described it as a way to redesign the phone for “people first,” rather than the apps that dominate the rest of the smartphone universe.If you’d like to try out Home, you have two options: wait until April 12 and download it from Google Play, or buy the HTC First for $99, the first phone with Home embedded within it. If you choose to download, be aware that Home will only run on the HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and Note 2, and the forthcoming HTC One and Galaxy S4, Facebook said.

SXSW Discussions: 7 Tips on How to Develop a Digital Docuseries

first_imgThe creators of a taco travel docuseries set to appear on a new PBS YouTube channel discuss how to develop projects for digital audiences.All images via Taco Journalism.Let’s be honest. SXSW, the annual interactive, film, and music festival is really, truly only about one thing: tacos. The festival is hosted in Austin, Texas, where tacos are serious business. One crew of taco lovers has set out to produce the world’s greatest taco docu-series The Tacos of Texas, based on the popular book by the same title.Speaking during a panel discussion at SXSW about the state of digital docuseries and how the crew got one off the ground (which will stream on Indie Lens Storycast, a recently launched YouTube channel in partnership with PBS Digital Studios), producer and cohost Mando Rayo and director Dennis Burnett offered these seven tips on how to develop a modern docuseries in the age of digital distribution.1. Build Your Audience Beforehand“So ‘Tacos of Texas’ actually began many years before out of a blog called ‘Taco Journalism’ which we started in Austin, Texas. The project, which was just friends sharing favorite taco spots around town eventually took off and even spawned a couple of books before the thought of a docuseries even began.” —Mando RayoFor their Tacos of Texas project, Burnett and Rayo, along with co-producer and cohost Jarod Neece, spent years organically developing an audience. As taco-lovers from near and far joined their community, the brand grew as demand changed and other digital options developed. By the time a docuseries was even on the table, an eager audience was already waiting (which was great for investors).2. Bring a Community With You“Early on, we found that people on our blog wanted to do more than just read about tacos, they wanted to engage with the journey. When we set up our tour across the state, we were actually able to put together the ‘Texas Taco Council’ where people would help connect us with great taco places, people and stories.” —Mando RayoIt’s not just getting people engaged that matters, Rayo and Burnett explain. It’s about finding a way for people to be a part of the team and the journey. It also helps when people in your community have their own networks and channels to share, connect, and promote your project at every stage.3. Be Open to Sponsors (But Don’t Wait for Them!)“We were lucky to find some sponsors to help us along the way. We had a Chevy Taco Truck (which we actually slept in more than a few times on our journey), which was a huge boost. But while we were lucky, we also were always just as prepared to just go in shoot.” —Dennis BurnettTake it from a fellow Texan: traveling around the Lone Star state is not a simple task. It takes time, gas, and resources to go from El Paso to Corpus Christi, so sponsorship is a no-brainer. But, as Rayo and Burnett state, their energy came from their passion and the idea; they had no intention of sitting back and waiting to hit a certain dollar amount before they took off.4. All Thriller No Filler“It’s a challenge to figure out what to include and what not to include in digital content like this. In our case, our episodes needed to be around 7 minutes each. Which means we want to tell a quick story in an entertaining way that still feels true.” —Dennis BurnettTraditional documentaries are often 90-minute+ features, or they might parts of series totaling several hours. However, bite-sized content is becoming the norm for online and digital audiences. For filmmakers like Burnett, who doesn’t come from a traditional documentary background, it takes embracing everything you can to make things engaging — like quick pacing, smash sequences, and creative cuts.5. Have an Adaptable Crew“While our team was small, it was also very adaptable as all of us had to wear many hats. Our key grip, Robert Gomez, also doubled as your on-set photographer helping to set a shot then taking 35mm behind-the-scenes photos” —Dennis BurnettFor the Tacos of Texas project, the team consisted of seven individuals: two onscreen hosts, four crew members (who all filled various roles) and one producer. Many digital filmmakers today have multi-faceted skill-sets like this, which is a huge part of digital production work (wherein everyone is equally capable in almost every department).6. Adapt On the Fly“When we were in San Antonio, we were covering a couple of puffy taco places. One was a straightforward shoot where they gave us a lot of time and access; however, the other was very limited and strict on where and how much we could shoot, so we had to adapt on the fly.” —Dennis BurnettOn directing his team, Burnett stresses structure with spontaneity. While it’s important to have a backbone for production, it’s just as important to adjust on the fly to any situation. In the cutthroat world of competing puffy taco stands in Texas, that means you’re either ready to shoot from the moment you arrive or you’re left in the dust.7. Millennial-Friendly Content“One of the big goals and focuses of Indie Lens Storycast is on making content which is unique and sincere, but also millennial-friendly. Which to us means making things that are fun, youthful, and not necessarily following the rules of traditional filmmaking.” —Dennis BurnettBurnett is quick to point out that he does not come from an academic background. Tacos of Texas is a great example of finding a way to produce content that people want — content they are already familiar with from blog posts, GIFs, and short video clips that adheres to the tenets of documentary storytelling while being entirely different and new.For more tips and tricks for docu-series filmmaking, check out some of these articles.12 Video Editing Tips for Cutting a DocumentaryDon’t Blink: A New Age of Micro-Documentary Filmmaking is DawningInnovative Production Tips from the Filmmakers of SXSWlast_img read more
