Angajatii Canon lucreaza in iad

You might think your job sucks, but at least your boss wasn't insane enough to remove all the chairs and install security so an alarm goes off if you don't walk fast enough.

The president of Canon Electronics, Hisashi Sakamaki, is also the author of a book proposing some of the same measures he takes with his own company. His theory is that forcing employees to stand not only saves money but increases productivity and enhances employee relationships.
UNIFORMELE! Nimeni nu observa uniformele?
Nu mai vreau sa folosesc camere Canon... sau imprimante.

Perceptia impresionismului


The sun is set against the dawn, the orange color against the gray and the vibrant force of the sun against its motionless surroundings. To many spectators, the sun undulates or pulsates slightly. Why is this so? The sun is nearly the same luminance as the grayish clouds. Notice how the sun nearly disappears if you remove the color.
The sun is perceived differently is different parts of our mind. To the more primitive subdivisions of our brain, the sun is nearly invisible. But to the primate subdivision, the sun appears normal. Thus, there is an inconsistency between our perception of the sun in the primitive and primate portions of our brain.

Campanie Sony-Ericsson Satio - telefon cu 12 Megapixeli

A fost odata ca niciodata Sony Ericsson care vroia sa promoveze noul telefon cu o camera de 12 Megapixeli. La alte telefoane facusera reclame cu tehnica, imagini speciale si orgii de graphic design. Totusi de data asta le trebuia ceva mai eficient. Asa ca au decis ei sa faca toate materialele promotionale pozand cu telefonul. In fond vroiau sa evidentieze functiile nu telefonul. Si asa au facut...

Ah si e si o gagica cam dezbracata in toate pozele... that never hurts.

Gripa porcina H1N1 in Romania

(negru - morti, rosu - infectati, portocaliu - suspect)
Virusul A (H1N1) a fost identificat la o persoană din Bucureşti. Este vorba de o femeie de 30 de ani care s-a întors pe 23 mai de la New York şi a fost internată la Institutul Matei Balş. Se pare că femeia a intrat deja în contact cu aproximativ 40 de persoane.

Cat valoreaza identitatea ta

cybercrime experts Steve Santorelli and Levi Gundert introduced me to a sprawling criminal underworld so large and pervasive that no one can control it.

This underworld is surprisingly easy to access. It consists of a network of online chatrooms and web forums where stolen information is openly traded, along with off-the-shelf software tools needed to pull off just about every kind of online scam going. "This is an economy that is worth billions of dollars," says Dean Turner of the security company Symantec in Calgary, Canada. "It's highly organised. Everything that criminals need is available for sale."

It was not always like this. In the early days, criminal hacking required advanced technical skills. But organised crime has moved in and the black market has become a service economy where anybody can buy a career in cybercrime.

As soon as Santorelli and Gundert log me onto a chatroom, messages start to appear.

Blossoming Flower

greek firm petra architects have designed 'blossoming dubai' for their proposal for
the zaabeel park tall emblem structure competition.

they based their design on the form of a blossoming flower. the tower is equipped
with two elevators running on spiral rails (spiral of the most simple geometry turning
135 degrees while ascending 138 meters). these lifts ascend from lower ground floor
(where the visitors enter) to the cafeteria level and the viewing platform above.
apart from the previously mentioned elevators that can cover all visitor access
(including disabled access), there are also two staircases fitted in the spiraling elements
of the building. the latter can be used on an emergency case.

Oh da... deabia astept sa vad cum se comporta la un incendiu
Adevarul e ca e din cele mai decente propuneri de la concursul asta.

Casele de lux antebelice ale rusilor


Inainte ca rusii sa reprezinte arhetipul bogatasului snob care nu stie decat sa copieze prost ce vede prin reviste si inainte de glorioasa epoca rosie (la care incearca sa se intoarca) nobilii rusi aveau propriul stil. Isi pastrau identitatea culturala la toate nivelurile si asta se reflecta si in casele lor. In ciuda tehnologiei de constructii din caramida de la acea vreme rusii preferau sa isi construiasca casele din lemn si sa adopte un stil arhitectural unic. Chiar daca nu va place este interesant.

Vor sa scoata sigla ministerului de pe diplome


"Putem sa scoatem sigla Ministerului Educatiei, Cercetarii si Inovarii de pe toate diplomele pe care astazi invatamantul superior le elibereaza. Scoatem sigla si universitatea iti asuma integral responsabilitatea pentru diploma pe care o da.

In aceste conditii universitatile private ajung la acelasi nivel cu cele de stat. Incantator nu?

Scandal la Eiffel tower competition


recently 'phyte', a 380m mobile tower was announced as the winner of a competition held by
the fondation societe tour eiffel. however the designer nicolas mouret was later stripped
of his prize because he is not officially an architect.

'gus eiffel, who was an engineer and not an architect, must have flipped over in his grave. but even he couldn't change the rules of the competition that carries his name.'

Nicolas Mouret e impacat dar voi ce parere aveti? Nu ar trebui sa isi pastreze premiul?

Reverse vending machine

The pitch: these boxes, fashioned like regular ol' vending machines, will eat, clean and smush your recyclable empties, rewarding you for your good deed with coupons, cash credit or vouchers for nearby stores. Your good deed, of course, was that you a) recycled a plastic bottle and b) watched a targeted advertisement on the machine's LCD screen. As of last week, they've been deployed in a few locations in Envirobank's native Australia, but only on a trial basis.

Ma intreb cat de bine ar merge la noi asa ceva.

Human substitute

University as we know it

The dirty secret of higher education is that without underpaid graduate students to help in laboratories and with teaching, universities couldn’t conduct research or even instruct their growing undergraduate populations. That’s one of the main reasons we still encourage people to enroll in doctoral programs. It is simply cheaper to provide graduate students with modest stipends and adjuncts than it is to hire full-time professors.

In other words, young people enroll in graduate programs, work hard for subsistence pay and assume huge debt burdens, all because of the illusory promise of faculty appointments. But their economical presence, coupled with the intransigence of tenure, ensures that there will always be too many candidates for too few openings.
