Be a Torchbearer for God -- Be a Torchbearer for God November 25, 1999 Johannesburg, S. Africa (In Sepedi). Episode 1699, Air Date: 10 May 2011. Script *Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to experience the enlightening wisdom of the Supreme Master Ching Hai. @Thank you, thank you. You call me "Master," but you are all "Master." You just forget, just forget. When we are united, when we remember the unity of the universe, which includes ourselves, then we remember that we are one with God, one with the all-pervasive Intelligence. And when we have forgotten this, then we have forgotten everything. And we try to remember that through different means, like prayers, scriptures, yogas, meditation. All these are good. All these are good for us. One day we will truly remember that we are all masters. There is no one in this room or anywhere else who is not a master because we cannot be separated from the Master, who is all-pervasive, and we are in that pervasiveness, and we are one with that, and that's the only thing we are made of. There is nothing else that's made up our beings except God-essence, except the greatest things that we call Truth, Wisdom, God, Goddess, Buddha - name whatever you like to call this Greatest Being in the universe, which is even one with us, with every one of us. That's why at the time of death, the so-called ourselves, or the body, just lays flat on the ground, or anywhere, and doesn't move, because that essence of all movement, of all activities, has chosen ...
America's First Amendment Twilight Zone A narrated presentation by Adam Thierer, Senior Fellow, Progress & Freedom Foundation, regarding the peculiar way First Amendment protections are currently applied to various media in America. Thierer shows that, at least as the law stands today, the First Amendment is a house divided; a veritable jurisprudential Twilight Zone in which identical words and images are being regulated in completely different ways depending on the mode of transmission. He explains why this situation should not (and cannot) stand, and why we should strive for a consistent First Amendment standard for the Information Age.

Multi-Touch Table Augmented with Computer Vision A Frustrated Total Internal Reflection touch table's input was augmented with computer vision skin detection input. Independently multi-touch and skin tracking data sources have been shown to be useful for achieving successful projected surface virtual interactions. However, we suggest that by synchronizing these data sources allows for greater tracking robustness. Additionally, by tracking both touch and spatial locations of the user's hands surface behaviors are more fully taken advantage of facilitating the table's pervasiveness.
Energy Management for the Pervasive Technology that Changes the World Henry Tirri, Senior Vice President and Head of Nokia Research Abstract One of the most pervasive technologies in the world especially for the developing communities comes in the form of mobile communication devices and associated services. For billions of people across the world, primary access to communication networks, including Internet, comes through their mobile phones - not from personal computers or fixed landlines telephony. This pervasive communication technology is on its way to fundamentally change social networking in local communities and dramatically improving education for remote schools. The same pervasive technology combined with sensor technologies is revolutionizing fieldwork in health care and agriculture for rural areas. In addition for the 3B people in the world that do not have a bank account pervasiveness of the mobile devices allows widening financial services like never before. These developments will lead to an increase in information and communication traffic, and by some predictions the communication industrys contribution to the global carbon footprint is forecast to double over the next ten years. While incremental approaches to reducing energy consumption are possible, they will ultimately fail to keep pace. We are interested in a more ambitious and holistic solution that is required to achieve targets in the long term and address the growing demand for energy driven by dramatic increases in the number of users, new usage patterns, and the ...
Influence The Psychology Of Persuasion Robert Cialdini His most recent work, Yes! 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to be Persuasive (ISBN 978-184668-016-8), co-authored with Dr. Noah Goldstein and Steve J. Martin, provides insights on how to apply the science of persuasion to be more effective at influencing others at work and in personal situations. Yes! is a New York Times, USA Today, & Wall Street Journal Best Seller. Six "Weapons of Influence" Cialdini defines six "weapons of influence": Reciprocity - People tend to return a favor, thus the pervasiveness of free samples in marketing. In his conferences, he often uses the example of Ethiopia providing thousands of dollars in humanitarian aid to Mexico just after the 1985 earthquake, despite Ethiopia suffering from a crippling famine and civil war at the time. Ethiopia had been reciprocating for the diplomatic support Mexico provided when Italy invaded Ethiopia in 1935. Commitment and Consistency - If people commit, orally or in writing, to an idea or goal, they are more likely to honor that commitment. Even if the original incentive or motivation is removed after they have already agreed, they will continue to honor the agreement. For example, in car sales, suddenly raising the price at the last moment works because the buyer has already decided to buy. See cognitive dissonance. Social Proof - People will do things that they see other people are doing. For example, in one experiment, one or more confederates would look up into the sky; bystanders would then look up into ...
CERIAS Security: Quantitative Risk Assessment of Software Security and Privacy 1/6 Clip 1/6 Speaker: Mehmet Sahinoglu · Auburn University at Montgomery, AL The need for information security is undeniable and self-evident. The pervasiveness of this critical topic requires primarily risk assessment and management through quantitative means. To conduct an assessment; repeated security probes, surveys, and input data measurements must be taken and verified toward the goal of risk mitigation with minimal cost. One can evaluate risk using a probabilistically accurate statistical estimation scheme in a quantitative security meter (SM) model that mimics the events of the breach of security. An empirical study using Java code is presented and its accuracy is veriﬁed by discrete-event or Monte Carlo simulations. The design improves as more data are collected and updated. Practical aspects of the SM are presented with a real-world example as related to a PC user and a risk-management scenario using the Game Theory approach for optimal cost mitigation results.

"What can we learn from software engineering and why?" NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE School of Computing CSSEMINAR TITLE : "What can we learn from software engineering and why?" SPEAKER : Prof. Mehdi Jazayeri University of Lugano Switzerland TIME : April 23, 2010, 10:00am - 12:00pm, Fri VENUE : LT34, SoC1, Level 3 School of Computing, National University of Singapore Chaired by Dr Jarzabek, Stanislaw (firstname.lastname@example.org) ABSTRACT: Software is critical to the working of our modern society. Software is pervasive, it works, it is invisible, it just seems to run things well and stay out of the way. This is not by accident. Over time, software engineers have developed techniques for creating functioning software that is efficient and dependable. Software is so smoothly woven into our machines and services that despite its pervasiveness, most people do not even realize its presence in the devices and services they use. Software engineering is about understanding problems and implementing solutions that will work now and forever, economically, reliably, and efficiently. Software engineers have developed an approach and a way of thinking to tackle problems and look for near-perfect solutions. Unfortunately, this attitude does not make them popular with managers, who would prefer a less perfect solution that is delivered on time and at less cost. The approach does not make them popular with other computer scientists (eg computational scientists) who just want to get the software running and get the results out, never mind ...
Yoga Stretches for Flexibility & Balance -- Food & nutrition play a huge role in your ability to stretch deeply. By supplementing specific nutrients and practicing a specific series of postures, it's possible to naturally double your flexibility in less than 1 month. I have a free e-course that'll get you started. Click the URL above. INSPIRING YOGA QUOTES "I did not come to yoga to stretch. I came to live." Maya Breuer "Practicing asanas began to teach me about myself. The body is such a great school of learning. It makes you pay attention." Lilias Folan "The challenge, and the opportunity, that Yoga presents to us is the possibility of breaking the conditioning cycle. We do this by becoming aware of the depth and pervasiveness of our patterns and, at the same time, by working to change them. And true transformation begins at the moment that we become aware of our actual condition." Gary Kraftsow "What I want to say is that there is a strong relationship between yoga on the mat and yoga off the mat. I've really come to believe that the energy accumulated in practice has a lot to do with my ability to get clarity about the reality of things." John Friend http "People sometimes ask me what difference practice has made in my life. The answer is it's changed everything for me. And, in a funny way, it's changed nothing." Lama Surya Das "The most profound benefit of yoga and meditation for me has been a natural relaxing into my life. Obstacles are not so scary. I am more fluid, more curious ...
Pervasive Pesticides and Our Children Little is known about the exposure of infants to pesticides, despite their vulnerability and evidence of widespread dietary exposure among older children and adults. A new research project to be carried out in Thailand will test new, improved methods for measuring pesticides in breast milk and infant formula. Here project lead Anne Riederer, assistant researcher in the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University, talks about the pervasiveness of chemicals and how we might detect them in infants. Related Video What Thailand Can Teach Us About Pesticides Background Although the breast milk testing method will be pilot-tested on samples collected from a cohort of women in Thailand, it should have broad applications in the US Because these chemicals are widely distributed in the food supply, all US infants are potentially expose. A valid method for measuring these compounds in breast milk and infant formula would have a major impact on our ability to evaluate pesticide exposures in early life, contributing to an improved understanding of their longer-term health effects. This research project is funded by a grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Hawaii stereotypes in the streets of NYC Princeton writing seminar investigating globalization, specifically how we develop ideas about other places/people. In this video, people's stereotypes of Hawaii give insight into the biases of the media and the carelessness with which people rely on these superficial interpretations done by the media when constructing our vision of the world. Of course most of these people realize they're probably wrong (in fact most laugh when hearing themselves out loud), but this video demonstrates the pervasiveness of the media in creating stereotypes and should challenge viewers to at least realize they hold stereotypes and that they should consciously avoid relying on these when meeting new people, visiting foreign places etc. This video is not meant to look down on those that hold stereotypes, but to recognize that stereotypes are used by all.
Usher: Enabling Quality Data Collection on Mobile Phones Usher: Enabling Quality Data Collection on Mobile Phones Kuang Chen, Ph.D Student, EECS, UC Berkeley Abstract: Recently, the Director General of the World Health Organization likened the lack of quality health information in low income countries to a "gathering storm", saying, "to make people count, we first need to be able to count." All over the world, the pervasiveness of cellular networks is enabling mobile-based data collection. Community health workers armed with commodity phones are starting to visit the most rural and isolated places to promote health and gather data in mobile forms. Among their challenges, data quality ranks high: a recent study found that mobile-based data quality was ten-times worse than dictation to a human operator. In this talk, we will present an overview of Usher, a system to address this challenge. Usher automates form design, filling, and data quality assurance for mobile phones and other non-traditional data entry settings. Rather than relying on domain experts, Usher learns a probabilistic model over form questions using existing form data. Usher then applies this model at every step of the data entry process to ensure high quality. Before entry, it induces a form layout that captures the most important data values of a form instance as quickly as possible. During entry, it dynamically adapts the form to the values being entered, and provides real-time feedback to guide the data enterer toward more likely values, and to avoid errors ...

The Beatles - Yellow Submarine Movie - 5/10 The dialogue is littered with puns, double entendres, and Beatles in-jokes, many scripted by poet Roger McGough. "Blue Meanies" is sometimes used as a slang term for the police, although many viewers will have missed this (see List of slang terms for police officers). The term "Blue Meanies" is actually a metaphor for bad people in government and corporations, who force their wills on good people (Pepperlanders), and deplete and ruin the natural environment, resources, colour and landscape. They are uncaring about their destructive ways and will do whatever necessary to crush those who oppose them. This negative view of corporations may also be reflected by many of the Blue Meanies having Mickey Mouse ears, reflecting a negative commerical pervasiveness of Disney Corporation, or alternatively an in-joke reference to Fantasia (described above). The imagery, character names, and vocalisations also include numerous in-jokes, such as the character Max being blue and having a German accent, possibly being a reference to the 1966 movie "The Blue Max", who also refers to escaping to Argentina, as some ***s had done.

Black History: Lost, Stolen, or Strayed (clip) Did you know that the first open-heart surgery was performed by a black doctor, Daniel Hale Williams? Not many people did in 1968, the year this eye-opening film, narrated by Bill Cosby, was first released. Many still don't today. "Black History: Lost, Stolen or Strayed" reviews the numerous contributions of African-Americans to the development of the United States. From the perspective of the turbulent late 1960s, the fact that their positive roles had not generally been taught as part of American history, coupled with the pervasiveness of derogatory stereotypes, was evidence of how black people had long been victims of negative attitudes and ignorance. Viewing this film today offers students and adults an opportunity to explore their own perspectives — to examine how things have changed in their lives and those of their parents, as well as how troubling stereotypes still persist four decades later. 54 minutes, color and b/w.

An American Self-Portrait - NIN A video showcasing Chris Jordans fantastic work. ---------------------------- The pervasiveness of our consumerism holds a seductive kind of mob mentality. Collectively we are committing a vast and unsustainable act of taking, but we each are anonymous and no one is in charge or accountable for the consequences. I fear that in this process we are doing irreparable harm to our planet and to our individual spirits. As an American consumer myself, I am in no position to finger wag; but I do know that when we reflect on a difficult question in the absence of an answer, our attention can turn inward, and in that space may exist the possibility of some evolution of thought or action. So my hope is that these photographs can serve as portals to a kind of cultural self-inquiry. It may not be the most comfortable terrain, but I have heard it said that in risking self-awareness, at least we know that we are awake. Chris Jordan Music by NIN
Derrick Jenson, Q&A opening highlights UofA September 16, 2009 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia : Derrick Jensen (born December 19, 1960) is an American author and environmental activist living in Crescent City, California. Jensen has published several books questioning and critiquing contemporary society and its values, including A Language Older Than Words, The Culture of Make Believe, and Endgame. He holds a BS in Mineral Engineering Physics from the Colorado School of Mines and an MFA in Creative Writing from Eastern Washington University. He has also taught creative writing at Pelican Bay State Prison and Eastern Washington University. Jensen is often labeled an anarcho-primitivist, by which is meant he concludes that civilization is inherently unsustainable and based on violence. He argues that the modern industrial economy is fundamentally at odds with healthy relationships, the natural environment, and indigenous peoples. He concludes that the very pervasiveness of these behaviors indicates that they are diagnostic symptoms of the greater problem of civilization itself. Accordingly, he exhorts readers and audiences to help bring an end to industrial civilization. This has led to creation of resistance groups such as Fertile Ground.

Orpheus Music meets Business Part 1/4 The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Presents: Music Meets Business. DVD. Directed by Ayelet Heller. [Germany]: EuroArts Music International, 2005. 2051837. $16.99. The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, established in Boston in 1972 was founded by cellist, Julian Fifer, with the intent of creating a professional ensemble that performed professionally without a conductor. That did not mean however that its performances were without leadership. The leadership was planned from the start to be internal and shared by all players. Within a given composition, leadership roles are dictated by the music, giving more weight to those performers whose musical roles are more substantial. This model, based on the standard performing mode for chamber music, has precedent in Baroque performance practice, where the keyboard player (generally a harpsichordist) conducted from the instrument, all the while taking part in the music making. In the Classical era, Mozart performed most of his piano concertos in this manner as well. Still, the pervasiveness and steadfast intent of Orpheus's conductorless band of 20--25 musicians over the last 33 years makes this chamber orchestra unique. The numerous Grammy winning CDs and DVDs the group has produced and their yearly concert seasons and tours attest to their success and popularity. Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Presents: Music Meets Business, a film by Ayelet Heller, presents the "Orpheus Process" and how its adaptation might influence the management styles of ...
HILLARY CAUGHT ON VIDEO Putting hillary on the couch seems to be the preoccupation of every armchair shrink extant and no wonder. The clinton psyche is awash with profound and intractable dysfunction. But it is precisely this teeming derangement that renders such efforts futile; that is to say, the very pervasiveness of clinton dysfunction is what precludes ever making a differential diagnosis in the first place. No matter. To precisely categorize clinton dysfunction is almost beside the point. Anyone still sentient after 14-to-15 years of clinton exposure already knows the clintons are mentally unfit; and this is all we really need to know as they position themselves for their final assault. We come to bury the clintons, not to cure them. Which brings us to the rape of Juanita Broaddrick. Mentally fit people do not rape. And either the clintons raped Juanita Broaddrick or they did not. And with all due respect to Susan Estrich, the statute of limitations here is irrelevant. This is not about taking away the clintons' liberty. This is about taking away their license. "When liberty becomes license, dictatorship is near." (Will Durant)
FEAR FACTORY Interview Evil G. of recently sat down with Burton C. Bell of the legendary FEAR FACTORY, currently on their headlining tour, "Fear Campaign Tour 2010," in the US supporting "Mechanize" their latest album which was released on February 9, 2010. Evil G. discusses with Burton the bands rejuvenation and excitement with the return of Dino Cazares, and their first LA performance, in quite sometime, at the 2nd annual Revolver Magazine's Golden Gods Awards. Burton also talks about the social consciousness of FEAR FACTORY material and how much thought is placed in their music and even videos which are filled with imagery and social statements. He comments on how well Dino and he connect when writing and have a natural chemistry that brings the life to the band and the return of a sound that fans have come to expect from FEAR FACTORY, pre-"Archetype" and "Transgression." Burton reveals the bands live show song choices and albums and songs they tend to avoid. Finally he talks about the hard times in the music business these days, the importance of the live shows and the struggle bands go through especially with the pervasiveness of illegal downloading or in Burton's own words, "stealing." All this plus exclusive live band performance footage.

Criminals, terrorists, and nation-state actors are making full use of the Internet to further their own ends. The solution does not rest solely with better efforts to detect and block intrusion attempts. Law enforcement and the private sector must work together to find and stop those responsible.

Black Women: Я U Raising Mules or Men? I will be 50 next year and have seen and read many things. I am not generalizing. This is not 30-40% of Black women. Just 50-70%. The pervasiveness of this term was none existent when I was growing up. It was not until the late 60's and early 70's that you started hearing this term because so many women were having to raise families on their own as illegitimacy began to take a foot hold on the black community. Single motherhood coupled with Government welfare helped to perpetuate a normalcy of fatherless households. To hide this stigma, the banner was worn. Pre-welfare, Men were in the household because they were the bread winners. With the advent of women being able to get a check and not work, men began to move out of the household to allow for the money to be received. "Sticking it to the man". Later, that became a way of life. A man would several families and many would brag about how many women and children he had all across town. With that, boys grew not into men like my Father and Grandfathers, but they grew into the bums we see today. And welfare queens produced more and more breeders who view men as paychecks and not as Fathers. The term SBW denotes more of a "I can pay my bills without the Father being there. Just send me a check".
