Fortua – You Can Do It With Fortua

January 27, 2016

Fortua – You Can Do It With Fortuna
https://www.fortua.com/

Fortua helps you raise funds and access resources to make your outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle endeavors happen. Theyare bringing people together on one platform, in one ecosystem, to share, learn from each other, support each other, and transform the way outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle endeavors are activated and actualized. Here’s how Fortua works: Campaign creators run campaigns on Fortua to make their endeavors happen. Backers support campaign creators by making financial or non-financial (e.g. gear, supplies, expertise, volunteer time) contributions to their campaigns. In exchange for support, campaign creators share their insights and experiences with their backers as their endeavor unfolds, and they also thank their backers with rewards (or perks) at the end of their endeavor.

DuckDuckGo

January 26, 2016

DuckDuckGo
https://duckduckgo.com/

Most search engines suffer from “search leakage.” In other words, when you search and then click a link, the search terms that you entered are shared with that site, along with your IP Address and other identifying information. The DuckDuckGo search engine, by contrast, redirects your request so that sites do not have access to your search terms. In addition, DuckDuckGo does not save IP address, user agent, or browser cookies during your searches, which means that your private information is better protected. For a more complete description of everything that DuckDuckGo offers, select the About section under the drop down tab on the right hand side of the screen. Meanwhile, searching with the engine is as easy as typing into the text box. All the increased privacy is built into the service. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

The Why Files

The Why Files
http://whyfiles.org/

The Why Files, created and based at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with funding support from the National Science Foundation, will be a boon to any science teacher. Each week the site publishes a new story that digs into “the science behind the news,” providing readers with an erudite overview of the scientific issues that shape our world. Recent topics have included information about possible breakthroughs in the quest for an effective male contraceptive, how warming seas are affecting the cod population, and an expose on “flying” plankton. Educators searching for ways to enrich their lesson plans will want to scout the Archives, which go all the way back to 1999 and cover such topic as Arts & Humanities, Biology, Earth & Space, Environment, Health, and others. Additionally, the Teaching tab is loaded with helpful material, including suggested Why Files that meet the National Science Education Standards and Classroom Activities (discussion questions, quizzes, etc.) on popular topics ranging from tsunamis to the flu vaccine.

Climate Feedback brings the expertise of the scientific community into the world of online climate coverage to provide readers and authors with in-situ feedback about the content’s scientific credibility. Climate Feedback is a project born from the reality that we are at a critical moment in history, one in which important decisions about climate change must be made. It’s a project born from the understanding that in order for our democracies to choose the right courses of action, citizens must have access to scientifically accurate information. And it’s a project born from the belief that it’s the civic duty of scientific professionals to better inform their fellow citizens in their respective areas of expertise.

KeepVid

KeepVid
http://keepvid.com/

The premise of KeepVid could not be simpler. Just copy and paste a link from YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud, DailyMotion, and other supported sites and select Download. The program then downloads the video or audio onto the user’s computer free of charge. While KeepVid is safe and legal, readers will want to be careful about how they use their downloaded content. For instance, downloading the latest Taylor Swift video to one’s computer is legal. However, using that video for profit or any public purpose is usually a violation of copywrite laws. Nevertheless, for readers who would like to download their favorite videos from YouTube and other sites, KeepVid is an excellent resource. This will be Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

Thing-to-Thing Research Group (T2TRG)

January 23, 2016

Thing-to-Thing Research Group (T2TRG)
https://irtf.org/t2trg

The Thing-to-Thing Research Group (T2TRG) will investigate open research issues in turning a true “Internet of Things” into reality, an Internet where low-resource nodes (“things”, “constrained nodes”) can communicate among themselves and with the wider Internet, in order to partake in permissionless innovation. The focus of the T2TRG are on issues that touch opportunities for standardization in the IETF, i.e., it will start at the adaptation layer connecting devices to IP, and end at the application layer with architectures and APIs for communicating and making data and management functions (including security functions) available. A first wave of IoT standards has been completed by the IETF. Consortia are now forming to build infrastructure and industry agreements around those. This generates new requirements for research, based on actual usage of the standards now available. In parallel, W3C has set up an IG (Interest Group) on the Web of Things (WoT); this is operating on a similar timeline as an RG does in the IRTF. A parallel activity associated with the IETF/IRTF can help ensure the common work does not stop at the traditional boundaries of the W3C, but considers networking issues as well. IETF WGs are also active on these topics, but an IRTF RG can provide a more long-term perspective to the collaboration. This will be added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
