first_imgJamtronica pioneers Lotus had a busy year in 2018, and will continue their momentum with another big year ahead of them. In early December, the band released a brand new album, Frames Per Second, their first studio release since 2016’s Eat the Light. Frames Per Second is a sprawling, all-instrumental 19-track release comprised of a mix of never-before-heard material as well as songs the band had been introducing and road-testing since the release of Eat The Light.Along with the album itself, Lotus released a studio documentary chronicling the recording of Frames Per Second at Rittenhouse Soundworks in Philadelphia. The documentary showcases Lotus in a pure, raw form performing live in the studio, highlighting the band’s ever-evolving style over their 20-year career.As guitarist Mike Rempel told Live For Live Music last year, “When I look at the way my life has unfolded, I mostly just feel gratitude. With all these years under our belt, we’ve been able to cultivate a musical intelligence or intuitive capacity that wasn’t possible in the early years. When we are accessing it, it’s very powerful. That capacity for intuitive musical communication is a result of all those years, and it’s amazing and beautiful and fun.”In April, Lotus will head out on a run of tour dates in support of Frames Per Second. That 8-date jaunt will culminate in a headlining blowout at Morrison, CO’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The five-piece band consisting of Mike Greenfield (drums), Jesse Miller (bass, sampler), Luke Miller (guitar, keys), Mike Rempel (guitar), and Chuck Morris (percussion) has tapped an impressive support lineup for their Red Rocks bash including experimental electronic duo Ghostland Observatory, Denver-native electronic producer Jade Cicada, and Colorado’s own jam favorites Magic Beans.The band’s previous Red Rocks performances have produced some explosively creative results, ultimately pushing the band to release full-show pro-shot video of the magic that ensued at their 2016 and 2017 headlining performances along with some pretty cool behind-the-scenes backstage b-roll.Lotus – “Arupa” / “Umbilical Moonrise” – Red Rocks – 9/16/2017[Video: Lotus]Prior to Lotus’ Red Rocks Amphitheatre show, the band looks forward to throwing down a three-night stand in Brooklyn, NY (4/4, 4/5, 4/6); Harrisburg, PA’s Club XL (4/18); a two-night stint in Washington, D.C. (4/19, 4/20); and an intimate show at Denver’s Summit. The quintet will also make summer festival appearances at Stephentown, NY’s Disc Jam Music Festival and The Peach Music Festival in Scranton, PA.Tickets for the majority of Lotus’ upcoming shows—including their headlining Red Rocks Amphitheatre show on April 27th—are still on sale here, so grab your tickets before it’s too late!For a full list of Lotus’ upcoming tour dates and more information, head to the band’s website.Lotus Upcoming Tour Dates:4/4/2019 – Brooklyn, NY | Brooklyn Bowl4/5/2019 – Brooklyn, NY | Brooklyn Bowl4/6/2019 – Brooklyn, NY | Brooklyn Bowl4/18/2019 – Harrisburg, PA | Club XL4/19/2019 – Washington, DC | 9:30 Club4/20/2019 – Washington, DC | 9:30 Club4/26/2019 – Denver, CO | Summit4/27/2019 – Morrison, CO | Red Rocks Amphitheatre^6/6/2019-6/9/2019 – Stephentown, NY | Disc Jam Music Festival7/25/2019-7/28/2019 – Scranton, PA | The Peach Music Festival^with special guests Ghostland Observatory, Jade Cicada, Magic BeansView Tour Dateslast_img read more

first_img18 April 2007South African social networking site MyVideo is venturing into citizen journalism, with the website offering users R1 000 for submitting “compelling, relevant and exclusive video news content”.The website has started accepting videos made using either video camcorders or cellphone technology since Monday, with editors deciding which videos are good enough for the financial reward.Editors will review each video based on several criteria, the most important of which are exclusive and responsible newsworthiness, together with sufficient video and audio quality.“MyVideo was set up to stimulate the exchange of content and views – and we’ve been happy with some of the content so far, especially the controversial FNB anti-crime advertising and the local Cape Town Flashmob activities,” MyVideo chief executive Rowan Polovin said in a statement.“But we want to encourage actively breaking news as it happens. The better cellphones now make that a reality, as the quality of the content is now good enough to MMS or e-mail to us direct,” Polovin said. “So we think a prize will stimulate guerrilla journos to send content in.”According to the company, much has been made of citizen journalists in the past, but no one has provided any financial incentive to encourage it – until now.Submitted clips will be posted on the site once they have been evaluated, while the selected clip will be placed under the category “breaking news”.“We are continually striving to be both innovative and responsible with the services we offer to our subscribers,” Polovin said. “With these new features we are not only showcasing MyVideo but also South Africa.”Jude Mathurine, head of the New Media Lab at Rhodes University, told Business Day on Tuesday that the strategy would sill have to prove itself, as he was not sure it was the best way to attract user-generated content.“If you look at some of the news sites such as Sunday Times and Mail & Guardian that are already attracting user-generated content, it would be difficult for MyVideo to compete,” he said.He further told the paper that it might make more sense for the site to attract the bizarre, crazy and shocking type of content that keeps viewers coming back for more, as opposed to news content that was typically difficult to create.Polovin told Business Day that the company would steer clear of the legal implications of running a news site by having trained editors screen all submitted content before it is made live.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Microsoft just released a major update to Bing Maps. Bing Maps now offers draggable routes that are computed dynamically, a zoom bar, embeddable maps, smarter command parsing and a redesigned interface. The new version of Bing Maps also loads faster. Microsoft now hosts the service in 7 data centers around the world and the Bing team has brought the size of the default Bing Maps home page down from 678kb to 484kb. Just like Google Maps, Bing Maps now also understands more complex queries like “Bellevue, WA to Space Needle.” Draggable RoutesDraggable routes are nothing new, of course. Google Maps has offered this feature for quite a while. Compared to Google Maps, the Microsoft implementation of this feature is slightly more difficult to use. Google Maps always displays a little button on a route that moves relative to the user’s cursor. On Bing Maps, users have to be more precise when it comes to grabbing a point on their route where they want to deviate from the computed route. Still, this is a welcome addition to Bing Maps.

The best feature here is the ability to customize these embeds. Users can select different sizes, whether to display a static or draggable map, as well as different map styles (road map vs. satellite imagery). Bing Maps also generates a link to the map that can be shared by email.View Larger MapDriving DirectionsView Bird’s EyeAs Google continues to enhance its mapping products and now even produces its own map data in the US, Bing Maps and others will have to stay on their toes. This update to Bing Maps mostly brings Microsoft back on par with Google with regards to features. Bing always offered a number of features that Google didn’t offer, including high-resolution aerial photos, and a Google Earth-like 3D view with 3D models in the browser. Currently, however, Google is adding more features (like traffic for more roads) and improving its maps at a faster rate than anybody else and it will be interesting to see if Microsoft will be able to keep up with this pace.last_img read more

We have 28 players and it’s impossible to use all of them. I think 25 is the right number,” the Italian said.”We have a lot of offensive midfielders and we have only [N’Golo] Kante as a defensive midfielder, so it’s not easy now for the midfield to have the right balance.” last_img read more

first_imgWALLINGFORD, Conn. — It’s 1 o’clock on a Wednesday afternoon in Wallingford, Connecticut, and about 20 children are watching a screen at the front of the room as they take turns navigating challenges and collecting virtual currency to unlock powers, outfits and pets for their characters.The game they’re playing has some similarities to the online battle game “Fortnite.” But the kids aren’t fighting one another — they’re racking up points for participation and good behaviour in their classroom at Dag Hammarskjold Middle School, where their teacher is presenting a home economics lesson with help from Classcraft, a fantasy-themed educational program.“It’s actually a lot of fun,” said 13-year-old Caiden McManus. “The pets — that’s my favourite thing to do. To train the pets, you gain as many gold pieces as possible so you can get the new outfits and stuff.”Peek inside your average classroom these days, and you’re likely to see teachers using apps, websites and software that borrow elements from video games to connect with students living technology-infused lives. By all accounts, they’re fun to use, and studies have found that some can be effective. But there is also skepticism about how often students who use them are better educated, or just better entertained.Dag Hammarskjold consumer sciences teacher Gianna Gurga said she had been looking for a way to get more out of her students. Students have been more motivated and performed better in her classes since she began using Classcraft in spring 2017, she said, and she has signed up a handful of other teachers in the school.“My kids are so addicted to it in the best way possible,” Gurga said.In one session, the classroom filled with suspenseful music as Gurga began rapid-fire questioning. With each correct answer, chosen from multiple choices on the screen, students gained points that could be used for avatar upgrades, privileges like listening to music in class, and a competition against other classrooms. The available characters — warriors, mages and healers — each have different powers and must collaborate to succeed.Points are awarded for class participation as well as good behaviour, but the kids can also be penalized, as was the case for one of Gurga’s seventh-graders who told a classmate to “shut up.”A middle school in New York City, Quest to Learn, was the first public school to fully embrace game-based learning when it opened nearly a decade ago. The Manhattan school, developed by game theorists with the Institute of Play, has been closely followed since by researchers hoping for hard evidence of results from technology-inspired gamification.In the last school year, 43 per cent of Quest to Learn’s students were up to state standards on the state English test, compared to 41 per cent citywide, and 29 per cent of its students met state standards on the state math test, compared to 33 per cent citywide. But advocates say standardized testing alone does not tell the story. Outside studies have shown growth in soft skills such as collaboration, creative thinking and empathy, according to Ross Flatt, director of programs and partnerships for the Institute of Play, a non-profit studio that uses game design principles to develop new learning experiences.To help educators identify programs with promise, the Johns Hopkins University Center for Research and Reform in Education launched a website that rates math and learning programs based on how they meet evidence standards for effectiveness under federal education law. The centre’s director, Robert Slavin, said there are some programs that have shown positive impacts but on average improvements are small.“When people talk about technology transforming everything, it may in the future, but it’s not there yet,” Slavin said.Some question whether the graphics, videos and sounds in so many programs are doing harm by teaching students to pursue the rewards.“Part of life is figuring out how to learn to love things and how to persevere in things even when it’s not extrinsically motivated,” said Christopher Devers, an education researcher at Johns Hopkins who said his review of the evidence suggests that on balance, games-based approaches tend to influence students in negative ways.One of the better known programs, DreamBox, teaches math by offering a series of problems that can grow increasingly challenging as the student enters correct answers. The program, which began as an app for consumers, entered the school market in 2011 and last year had 2.6 million student users. The company charges a fee of $7,500 per school building per year.DreamBox CEO Jessie Woolley-Wilson said the program is intended as an aid for teachers who can’t be expected to personalize learning for two dozen students simultaneously.“Let’s figure out a way to support a way to deliver the best teaching, and allow the learning guardian to get back to art of teaching,” she said. “Technology can deliver that math personalization in a way that can give the learning guardian actionable insights.”In Groton, Connecticut, early users of DreamBox reported anecdotal evidence of improved outcomes and schools are now using it district-wide. In Heather Dalton’s fifth-grade classroom at the Charles Barnum Elementary School, students spent the first half of a recent class working individually on DreamBox with headphones on. Information about their level of mastery of fractions was sent to Dalton’s laptop, but the students were most excited about the short video-game rewards they received between levels and the coins they gathered for upgrades to their avatars.“There’s a lot of learning,” Dalton said, “but it feels like a game to the kids.”Michael Melia, The Associated Presslast_img read more
