Science reveals truth behind Dinosaurs Died
ANCIENT OCEAN TEMPERATURES MAY FINALLY PROVE HOW DIED
By Victoria Woollaston via WIRED UK


Researchers found two warming spikes that coincide with extinction 'pulses'

A reconstruction of ancient ocean temperatures 66 million years ago has provided evidence to support the idea one of the planet's largest mass extinctions was caused by a combination of volcanic eruptions and an asteroid impact.

Researchers found two abrupt warming spikes in ocean temperatures that coincide with two previously documented extinction "pulses", seen near the end of the Cretaceous Period. The first extinction pulse was tied to massive volcanic eruptions in India, the second to the impact of an asteroid or comet on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. This ultimately led to the demise of the majority of dinosaur species. Read Full article via WIRED UK...

Architecture for the people by the people

by @AlastairParvin at TED


Designer Alastair Parvin presents a simple but provocative idea: "What if, instead of architects creating buildings for those who can afford to commission them, regular citizens could design and build their own houses?" The concept is at the heart of WikiHouse, an open source construction kit that means just about anyone can build a house, anywhere.

"POKÉMON GO" 
New Tech Revolution?

THE APP THAT DISRUPTED ON STREET



Pokémon Go is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic. It was initially released in July 2016 for iOS and Android devices, starting with the U.S. and Australasia, with Asian and European releases to follow.

The game allows players to capture, battle, and train virtual Pokémon who appear throughout the real world. It makes use of GPS and the camera of compatible devices. Although the game is free-to-play, it supports in-app purchases of additional gameplay items. An optional companion Bluetooth wearable device, the Pokémon Go Plus, is planned for future release and will alert users when a Pokémon is nearby. The game received a mixed critical reception. However, it was the most downloaded smartphone app in the U.S. in its first three days of release and was a boon to publisher Nintendo's stock value.
As of July 12, the average daily usage of the app exceeded Snapchat, Tinder, Instagram, and Facebook.

"Columna: Bendita Soledad"




SOCIETY & CREATIVITY
"Bendita Soledad"
COLUMNA DE CARLA GUEIFENBEIN
  via La Tercera en revistamujer.cl

Imagen: HAPPY! por @msanhuezacelsi


En esta gran columna  Carla Guelfenbein reflexiona sobre la soledad más allá de esa visión negativa que le atribuimos comúnmente, ya que  este termino es visto  con temor en la sociedad actual. Relacionándolo a rasgos negativos como el aislamiento,  la falta de empatía y  de compromiso con la comunidad; incluso  es un parámetro usado para evaluar la calidad de vida de los habitantes de una ciudad.

“Una de las instancias que más valoro de mi vida es estar sola. Porque nunca estoy sola. El mundo que llevo adentro, y que va conmigo a donde vaya, aflora en todo su esplendor en soledad” Carla Guelfenbein.

Pero el  aislamiento es muy diferente a una soledad escogida, por esta confusión la soledad suele ser estigmatizada. La soledad en una persona es sinónimo de inadaptación, de rareza, de falta de aptitudes sociales. En esta era en que todo es social se presume que alguien que lleva una vida solitaria es imposible que lo haga por elección, sino porque es incapaz de establecer relaciones con los demás. En cambio "la Sociabilidad" es una de las aptitudes más apreciadas de nuestro tiempo. Lee completa esta columna via La Tercera. . .

"Building Smart Cities starts with Smart People"
INTERVIEW WITH GORDON FULLER
By  Lauren Marinaro via ReadWrite.com





City, enterprise, and startup thought leaders are in the midst of designing the cities of tomorrow, but how do we decide what makes a smart city actually smart?


Perhaps the place to start is not with the latest smart tech, but rather the smart people that understand key problems cities are facing and how connected tech can enable solutions to these problems. We spoke with Gordon Feller, consultant at Cisco HQ and co-founder of @MeetoftheMinds, to see what — to him — makes a smart city, smart. Meeting of the Minds is a global thought leadership network and knowledge sharing platform focused on urban sustainability. The group now convenes 15,000 to 20,000 leaders around the world who want to engage in a dialogue about how to embrace innovation to change the trajectory of the future.

Game of Thrones  & Brexit ¿Qué sucederá?
Por York Perry  via fayerwayer.com


La popular serie de HBO al parecer no tendrá problemas para finalizar su producción, a menos que el fisco británico se invente algo.

 Durante los últimos días se ha generado una alto grado de especulación sobre las consecuencias económicas mundiales que traerá la hecatombe del Brexit, y uno de los rubros donde se puso en duda la estabilidad de la industria era justamente en el sector del entretenimiento, con todas las producciones que de un modo un otro dependían del mercado británico, incluyendo a Game of Thrones.
