8 Amazing TV Shows To Watch & How To Start Watching Them

Not only does Beijing offer breathtakingly beautiful scenery, but it also allows you to experience one of the most accessible and traditional forms of Chinese entertainment; acrobatics. China is highly regarded as having some of the most amazing acrobatic shows around the globe, so why not follow the bandwagon and visit one of these amazing shows today with The China Travel Depot.

The tradition of Chinese acrobatics has existed in the culture for over two thousand years and continues today at the country s main training school; Wu Qiao (located in Hebei province) where training begins for students at the age of 5. Some of the most common acts include lion dances or dragon dances (acrobats in hefty costumes dance, roll and jump like lions and dragons), sword swallowing, fire breathing, conjuring and juggling. You may even be treated with a costumed ostrich while the acts prepare their next act.

The Irynsoft Tablet Code-Named VIRTUOSO

While we have made our reputation as being the mobile educational platform for the iPhone and Android phone, we ve always looked to push the bar in new ways. Heavily influenced by our participation in the Kauffman Foundation s Education Ventures Program, we ve taken a dramatic step in the evolution of the company to not only extend our offering to higher fidelity devices, but actually offer these devices directly to our customers. Irynsoft-branded and co-branded tablets will be offered this fall direct to consumers. We see the tablet form factor as one of the most significant innovations in education technology and by partnering with tablet manufacturers to create dedicated devices, we are able to create an affordable alternative for learners to gain access to the wealth of education resources available on the web. In the meantime, as you know, we ve been working on our low-cost educational tablet. Well, I m pleased to say we went code complete at the end of October and are just doing some final testing. We ve already shipped some beta units in September, but we ve improved based on feedback and are really excited with how it looks. We re creating a software-only BYOD Bring Your Own Device version that anyone with an Android Gingerbread device and sufficient screen resolution–we require 800×480 or above) can install on their own. That will be available on the Android Market and Amazon App Store. In addition, we intent to be fully compatible with Kindle Fire, though that device will lack some of the hardware features required to use all of the software. We plan to offer a free version and an extended version for the additional features. Here is a 3+ minute demo of our tablet.

Social Networking Safety Tips

Using social networks only to send bulletins and promote your business is bad form. The first thing you want to do is create an engaging profile. It s often the first thing people notice. Taking the time set up a simple bio page is well worth the effort. If you re over thirty it may be difficult to grasp the personal nature of online networks.

When I went through on-campus recruiting for accounting firms in 1997 it was all about the navy suit and the ability to make vanilla small talk. We were taught to blend. Not anymore. Today

The Facebook :Timeline Now Available Worldwide

Last year we introduced timeline a new kind of profile that lets you highlight the photos posts and life events that help you tell your story. Over the next few weeks, everyone will get timeline. When you get timeline, you ll have 7 days to preview what s there now. This gives you a chance to add or hide whatever you want before anyone else sees it.
You can learn more about these new features by taking the quick tour available at the top of your timeline. If you want to get timeline now, go to the Introducing Timeline page and click “Get Timeline.” Or you can wait until you see an announcement at the top of your home page When you upgrade to timeline, you ll have seven days to review everything that appears on your timeline before anyone else can see it. You can also choose to publish your timeline at any time during the review period. If you decide to wait, your timeline will go live automatically after seven days. Your new timeline will replace your profile, but all your stories and photos will still be there.
If you want to see how your timeline appears to other people, click the gear menu at the top of your timeline and select View As.You can choose to see how your timeline appears to a specific friend or the public.

New iphone & ipad Database Resources..on Facebook

Filemaker set up a handy new online resource for all of its iPad and iPhone database developers pro and amateur alike. Instead of putting it on their own site though, they started up a Facebook page instead. Odd, but perhaps just a sign of the times. Handy probably come to think of it, since most people are checking their FB feeds more than anything else.

Anyhoo, it looks pretty useful. Packed with demos of how developers are creating Filemaker solutions for the iPhone/iPad combo, tips, videos, links, and of course, updates.

Google Gears: Upgrading from a 1950 s Chevy in Cuba

For obvious reasons, people are often assuming that Google Gears Offline. To me this isn t the case. Gears happens to have three initial APIs LocalServer, Database, WorkerPool that can lend themselves to offline work. However, some people are grokking that WorkerPool and even Database are very useful even if your application never goes offline.

Segue: I am really excited to have Brad Neuberg of Dojo, Rojo, and other non-ojo projects fame, working with me at Google. It is a real pleasure to see the group growing, with great new hires such as Joe Gregorio, and others that haven t made it official yet

I was having a chat about Gears with Brad, and he was talking about how he saw it as a way to update the Web in place. He got it.

Transforming Paper and Plastic into a 3D Interactive Experience

The Google Earth API was used as a foundation for StrataLogica to make use of its sophisticated image rendering logic, satellite imagery and access to built-in tools and navigation controls. As an enterprise scale application, we faced some interesting challenges and gained many insights along the way that we d like to share.

Our first task was to prove we could wrap Nystrom s existing educationally focused maps and globes onto Google Earth while retaining the same high quality resolution delivered in their print products.

Achieving acceptable image resolution resulted in file sizes which were much too large. In addition, we needed to deliver an increased level of map content and granularity of images as the user zoomed into the earth. To address these two issues, we created a custom process that takes an Adobe Illustrator file and outputs Superoverlays in accordance with KML 2.1 standards. Using open source Python frameworks, we created a customized solution that outputs Superoverlays with various levels of content.

Our next challenge was to provide support for authoring and maintaining content, in the browser using the Google Earth plugin. All content is authored and maintained in a content management system CMS in much the same way as any dynamic website. One unique difference is that some of the content elements are geo-referenced coordinates that specify the location of content on earth. In the case of placemark balloons, the geo-referenced coordinates identify hotspots on the Nystrom maps which become clickable when the user turns on a setting. The placemark balloons provide supplementary audio, image, video and descriptive content such as the example shown above for the Appalachian Mountains.

Go Mobile with Master Accuracy

Given the rise of Mobile Internet users in past few years it has become quite important to have mobile or lite version of your blog. Mobile users generally do not like to download relatively heavy blog that are made for normal internet connections and web browsers.

There are number of solutions for bloggers for both WordPress & Blogger platforms and I have personally tried a few of them, but I have not been too satisfied Either they are too complex to setup or they are not exactly mobile-friendly.Here at trak.in, we had been using custom mobile blogger solution for past couple of months from Mobstac and were quite satisfied with what they had to offer. However, now Mobstac has gone ahead and launched a platform which allows bloggers to create mobile version of their blog. I got trak.in s mobile version up and running on the new platform in under 5 minutes.
