    This video just has a few thoughts I had during and following a talk with mum the other day.. Quick Note: This is not meant to cause offence to anyone and their religious beliefs, this video is based purely upon my own beliefs as an atheist. I would welcome any comments on this video wether you agree with me or not :) Afterthought: This isn't meant to be a list of the people I love, it's just a random selection of some of the hundreds of people I love; if you're not in the video I still love you; I probably haven't taken a photo of you in the last week though lol

      • Primum non forgetful


        from omphalos / Added

        This is a film about memory loss in old age. The title of the film ‘Primum non forgetful’ explores part of our Hippocratic Oath when it comes to the medical approach to memory loss. Primum non nocere, as stated by Hippocrates, translates as: first, above all, do no harm. This film, Primum non forgetful, argues that we have lost sight of the range of reasons behind forgetfulness in age. This film is presented in two parts: the first part will explore the current drive and seemingly universal imperative to diagnose dementia early. Increasingly this determination is effectively translating into widespread cognitive screening of our elderly. Whilst it remains important to tackle the delayed diagnosis of dementia the film will close by suggesting potential harms of the urge to diagnose earlier and earlier.

          Speaker: Raphael Ronen, Commercialization Manager, The Innovations Group (TIG) Within universities and research institutions there are no shortage of good ideas; but not all of those ideas make commercial sense. In this lecture, we explore what makes a technology worthwhile commercializing. We also touch on some of the lessons we can take from the university setting and apply to any start-up technology.

              What is infant circumcision? Why is the practice common in U.S. hospitals and not in other countries? What does it remove and how does that affect the child? Does scientific data suggest that circumcision has benefits? What are the potential complications? How does it affect sexuality? Is it a medical procedure or a social surgery? If it's unnecessary surgery, what about contemporary bioethics principles? Through both a review of scientific literature and a discussion of the human cost of the procedure, this presentation explores these questions from the perspectives of the child, the adult survivor, the parent, and the practitioner. Ryan McAllister, PhD, is a parent, a biophysicist, an Assistant Professor of Physics and Oncology at Georgetown University, and also a volunteer who supports parents and families. Over the last 10 years he has been studying the medicalization of childbirth in U.S. hospitals. The slides, supplementary material, references and a copy of the video can be downloaded here: http://physics.georgetown.edu/~rmca/Elephant_in_the_Hospital/ NOTE: This presentation includes some graphic slides necessary to present the procedure and anatomy being discussed.

              • lose/lose

                Lose/Lose is a video-game with real life consequences. Each alien in the game is created based on a random file on the players computer. If the player kills the alien, the file it is based on is deleted. If the players ship is destroyed, the application itself is deleted. Although touching aliens will cause the player to lose the game, and killing aliens awards points, the aliens will never actually fire at the player. This calls into question the player's mission, which is never explicitly stated, only hinted at through classic game mechanics. Is the player supposed to be an aggressor? Or merely an observer, traversing through a dangerous land? Why do we assume that because we are given a weapon an awarded for using it, that doing so is right? By way of exploring what it means to kill in a video-game, Lose/Lose broaches bigger questions. As technology grows, our understanding of it diminishes, yet, at the same time, it becomes increasingly important in our lives. At what point does our virtual data become as important to us as physical possessions? If we have reached that point already, what real objects do we value less than our data? What implications does trusting something so important to something we understand so poorly have? There is an online scoreboard which is viewable at http://www.stfj.net/art/2009/loselose/ the game can also be downloaded at that link The code for generating the aliens appearances was pillaged from a project I collaborated on with David Wicks in 2009 : thingsiam.com that we developed for Domani Studios : http://domanistudios.com/ audio from gratisvibes.com more of my work at stfj.net

                      Truthful Honesty is the 7th Mental Perfection. Like the moon remains in its fixed orbit around the earth, even so should one stay and stick with the truth, thereby insisting on honesty. This guarantee induces trust, confidence and assured certainty in the mind, as well as in the society. You can play with your drama, but not with your karma.. http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/Truth_Triumphs.htm http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/IV/Not_Deceiving.htm http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/What_is_Right_Speech.htm http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/III/Optimal_Observance_IV.htm
