Cool toys pic of the day - STEM to STEAM
Apple Watch News
Image by rosefirerising
STEM to STEAM:
stemtosteam.org/

You know I love science stuff, all kinds of science. I crave science
information and news, read about it all the time, subscribe to
journals and magazines, read them aloud to my kids, hang out with
scientists, and even sometimes do my own research. 😉 But when I
started college, I started out in art. Then I was in music. And then
dance. By the time I got around to applying to grad school, I was
determined to go into poetry, and made it as far as being offered a
fellowship. I've noticed over the years than many of the scientists
who I find the most fascinating have some sort of artistic hobby, be
it glass blowing, jewelry design, carving, woodworking, scrimshaw,
playing cello, crafting hand made paper, or who knows. The point is
that these really sophisticated professional scientists are also
deeply engaged with the arts in their lives. When I switched from
studying the arts to studying the sciences, one of my grad school
mentors came to me with a question — "Had I noticed much science in
poetry?" Well, of course I had! And I collected it, too. More
recently, I heard a presentation at Enriching Scholarship about
science faculty working hard to design courses that partner science
students with business and art students for major projects, raving
about the benefits to all of them. Those projects created some pretty
impressive work, too.

So. STEM to STEAM. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering,
and Math. STEAM is all of that, but you add in Art. It was easy to
justify a need for STEM education to promote economic growth, but the
idea that the arts are an important part of the picture has been
mistakenly thought of as frivolous by funders. That needs urgently to
change, and at last is starting to do so.

In their words:
"In this current moment of economic uncertainty, America is once again
turning to innovation as the way to ensure a prosperous future. Yet
innovation remains tightly coupled with Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Math – the STEM subjects. Art + Design are poised to
transform our economy in the 21st century just as Science and
Technology did in the last century. We need to add Art + Design to the
equation — to transform STEM into STEAM."

I'm sold, but in case more would help, here is Representative Bonamici
on the topic.

Congresswoman Bonamici Asks about the Importance of STEAM Education:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU425V3NSkE

There's plenty more where that came from.

STEAM not STEM:
steam-notstem.com/about/

In their words:
"STEM is based on skills generally using the left half of the brain
and thus is logic driven. Much research and data shows that activities
like Arts, which uses the right side of the brain supports and fosters
creativity, which is essential to innovation. Clearly the combination
of superior STEM education combined with Arts education (STEAM) should
provide us with the education system that offers us the best chance
for regaining the innovation leadership essential to the new economy.
The competitors for that leadership, such as China and many other
countries in Asia and Europe, include vigorous Arts curriculum as a
national priority in their public school systems and we must do the
same. The mission is to make the country, its leader and the funding
agencies aware that Arts are not just a “nice” thing to have in the
education systems – but rather they are an essential national priority
to the future of the US in this rapidly changing global economy.
Without that priority the US will slide farther down the list of
economies."

This is one of those examples that has it all. Well, almost all. Open data,
data visualization, social media, apps, censorship, politices, drama,
advocacy, activism, and more.

Dronestream, by Josh Begley, collects public information on US drone
strikes in other countries, and provides a public API to support data
visualization. The data comes from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism,
www.thebureauinvestigates.com/ . That's the open data part.

Here are direct links to the data and the project.

Meanwhile, Josh set up Facebook and Twitter accounts connected with the
project, and started tweeting through the history of the drone strikes,
then livetweeting drone strikes as they happened and were reported in the
news.

Meet Jan Chetnik
Apple Watch News
Image by rikkis_refuge
Jan wears many hats at Rikki's Refuge. As our Public Relations Director and the Team Leader of the Jan Kerri Jean PR Machine she heads up the advertising about our Open Houses, Tours and other events and has been majorly instrumental in enlarging the spotlight on Rikki's Refuge. After all, if you've never heard of Rikki's, you won't be helping us to support the animals.

As our Educational Director she administers the Kind News program, reaching out to classrooms across the nation and the world. Raising the funds to send subscriptions to Kind News, an outstanding monthly Humane Education Magazine. It's only a year to sponsor a classroom. Have a favorite teacher or just want to help a classroom of Jan's choice? Make your donation for education and you can sponsor a whole class room of kids for a full year. We can only make a difference one child at a time. Teach a little kindness to a young one and they have a lifetime to spread it around.

As our Director of Prayers and Goodwill and Warm 'n' Fuzzy Things she keeps the miracles happening and things flowing smoothly at the Refuge. If you don't believe in prayer - just ask Jan to pray for you!!! Let me tell you - it works every time! Thank you Jan !!! At Rikki's Refuge we no longer just believe in miracles - we have come to rely on them.

Jan is also the one you'll meet on a Tour of the Refuge or at an Open House. These events are held once a month and Jan, our Tour Director, is the one who puts them together and pulls them off beautifully. She's that tall dark gorgeous brunette in the Rikki's T and Cap just brimming with excitement to introduce you to all the wonderful critters at Rikki's. Don't miss her next tour January 27th at 1 pm.

Jan hosts either a Tour or an Open House each month at Rikki's Refuge.

There will be 4 Open Houses during 2008. Each time we will be open for four hours with tours leaving every half hour. These events are often filled with special events like nature hikes, magicians (I keep begging for the "Watch the Poop Disappear" trick, but nobody has perfected it yet), artists, bake sales, crafts. You're welcome to come any time during an Open House, and all animal visitation is with tour guides.

The other 8 months of the year feature Tours. Tours last about 2 hours. And there's only one! So be prompt and don't hold up the group!

2008 OPEN HOUSE DATES
Sponsor Appreciation Day / Spring into Animals, Sunday 4/27 from 12-4 pm
Summer with the Animals, Sunday 6/15 from 12-4 pm
Halloween with the Animals, Sunday 10/19

SUNDAY JANUARY 27TH TOUR 1 PM
Participants will gather at the Gift Shoppe and the tour will leave promptly at 1 pm. The gates will open at 12:30. Please be on time as we cannot accommodate late arrivals.

On a tour you can meet the Cows of Bovine Boulevard, the Goats of Capri Corners, the Guinea Pigs of Cavy Castle, the Chickens of Chicken City, the Chukars of Chukar Chalet, the Dogs of Doggy Downs, the Donkeys of Donkey Dale, the Ducks of Ducky Digs, the Emus of Emu Estates, the Cats of Feline Fields, the Cats, Dogs and Rabbits of the 9th Life Retirement, Assisted Living and Psychiatric Center, the Geese of Goosey Gardens, the Guinea Fowl of Guinea Fowl Grounds, the Horses of Horsey Haven, the Mules of Jackass Junction, the Peacocks of Peacock Prowls, the Pheasants of Pheasant Phacility, the Pigeons of Pigeon Palace, the Pigs of Piggy Paradise, the Rabbits of Rabbit Rotunda, the Roosters of Rooster Rounds, the Sheep of Ramsey Residence, the Turkeys of Turkey Terrace and who ever else is staying with us at the time.

You will get to interact with the friendly cats and dogs, feed the pigs (bring apples) and sheep and goats and rabbits (bring carrots) and learn the story of why Rikki's is here and where we are going. You will see what day-to-day life is like at the refuge and you will also be invited to join in our volunteer efforts to build new housing for new animals.

Tours run about two hours and you should wear waterproof shoes, old clothes, long pants, sun lotion, hats, etc; dress for the weather as it's all outdoors and you will get wet, muddy and slobbered on! Warning - lots of prickles and hooves so sandals and shorts aren't recommended. Visit our Gift Shoppe for Official Rikki’s Wear and all kinds of wonderful unique crafts. Bring your camera, you'll get great shots of the excited animals thrilled by your attention.

Admission Donation is one can of cat or dog food per person (please be as generous as most folks and bring a case). We’re sorry, but we must ask that you leave your pets at home, our mascots aren't used to visiting animals and we don’t want a tangle. Children must be supervised by their parent or guardian (no more than 4 under the age of 10 per adult). Remember: animals have built in weaponry (horns, hooves, fangs, claws) which they can and will use, sometimes without warning, so enter at your own risk. Parent or guardian must sign for minors.

Anatomy of Apple Design on Vimeo by Transparent House
Apple Watch News
Image by takuhitofujita
Transparent House used its visualization capabilities to create a tribute to a company they greatly admire on the occasion of the iPad release. The idea was to show a glimpse into the history of this product giant by modeling some of the innovative products they've developed in their 3+ decade history.

The animation was done entirely using 3Ds Max and V-Ray render and took about 10 days to complete. Professionally done 3D visualization is the perfect tool to present concepts or new products in a beautiful, photoreal style, while creating a mood with music and conveying a message, through on-screen text or narration.

This animation was an artistic exercise and not intended for commercial use. The animation is not affiliated with Apple or any third-party companies. We hope this animation will be used mainly as an educational tool for the 3d visualization or/and design industry.

Update: We get a lot of comments and questions on why iMacs or iPods were not shown in the animation. The movie was done on the occasion of release of iPad. We wanted to show the products in Apple history that in our opinion were best related to the nature of the iPad. There were also time limitations - we just couldn' t get every product in.
