When Sports and Tech Collide

Over the past two decades communication devices and the age of computers have transformed the way we view and study sports, and it's not stopping any time soon.
If you're an avid NFL fan like myself, you've probably come to take for granted technologies such as the well-known 1st & Ten system, which has been in use since 1998 (and got its first go with a game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens). It's the tech that lets us see the locations of the line of scrimmage and first down marker by projecting it on television feeds. More recently, you might have heard about some communications issues (conspiracy!) at Gilette Stadium, where opposing teams routinely claim to hear the Patriots' radio broadcast through the headsets and helmets they'd otherwise use to gameplan against their opponents. So to what extent does the advancement of electronics (and wireless technology in particular) find its way into American football, and sports in general? I'll cover a handful of examples here, mostly from football, but also hockey.

American Football - Wireless/RF Technology

In the NFL there is one particularly iconic use of radio electronics to support the game (in contrast to the reported communications issues mentioned earlier). One player on offense and one on defense are allowed to wear helmets outfitted with radios, which allow them to receive voice from the coaching staff on the sidelines. This is usually assigned to the players on the field who call audibles and pre-snap adjustments - always the quarterback on offense, and usually (but not always) one of the middle linebackers on defense. These helmets are clearly marked with a green circle on the back:
Perhaps more impressive than a radio for a player or two to hear from the coach is a development fromZebra Technologies allowing real-time tracking of players via RFID chips implanted into shoulderpads. These chips allow the NFL to track player movement and provide us stats on speed and distance travelled over the course of a game. Now that the system is installed in every NFL stadium, you can expect that more advanced metrics on situational and overall player performance will become available soon.

9 High-Tech Shoes Step Into the Future: Photos

Nike Designer Tim Hatfield recently announced that self-tightening power laces, like the ones seen on Marty McFly’s Air Mag shoes in "Back To The Future Part II," could be arriving as soon as next year. The revelation sent sneaker aficionados into a frenzy, but it also hinted that a radical shift in shoe design is just around the corner.
D'Wayne Edwards, a former shoe design director for Nike’s Jordan Brand and founder of Pensole, a footwear design academy for youth, told DNews he expects big innovations in the coming years. While some shoe companies may capitalize on the "cool factor" of emerging technologies to create gimmicky products, he said "if technology is used in it’s pure form -- to make the human body better or to make the person more in tune with their body, feet or footwear -- then it will only be an enhancement."

'Back To The Future' Power Laces Coming Soon

While there's no shortage of fitness tracking applications for shoes, Edwards foresees even greater advancements coming down the design pipeline -- from 3D-printed shoes and sneakers that tell runners if they over pronate, to soles that stimulate muscles and alert wearers if their back needs adjusting.
But tomorrow's shoe innovations are already starting to appear in today’s high-tech footwear. So click through, try on a pair and see if any are a good fit.

Are you having a virtual relationship?

Psychology of Online Virtual Relationships:

Or, My Best Friend's Name is

Instructions for this Report

The first section discusses the depth of emotions that can be expressed. Generally, there is a perception that deep, emotional relationships cannot exist via an online interaction and that online relationships are restricted by ideas that can be typed, but not expressed otherwise.
The author feels that this notion of a lack of emotional depth in an online relationships is not necessarily true for everyone. He says that with some of his own online relationships, he feels the kind of warmth and caring that he would normally expect from a "real" relationship.

I agree that sometimes, the most fulfilling friendships aren't the face to face kind. I had an unusual experience where I got to see what one of my friendships is like in the online world. I've got a friend, Kevin, whom I knew from high school. We weren't really tight as friends, but we got along really well. Lately, I started emailing him, telling him my guy problems. It's amazing how our friendship has deepened in the last few weeks. We really opened up to each other- he's now telling me his own personal problems. When we actually do see each other, it's like we were always close friends. It all would not have been possible had I not started this online aspect of our friendship.

He also addresses the issue of adopting a false online identity and why he believes they are healthy. Within us, he says are a variety of aspects that ordinarily are not expressed. By adopting online identities that contradict with our true gender, age, and so on, we are just letting those other aspects out.
In addition, there also seems to be a system online which gives more favor to females. Females are more likely to be helped out, or felt sorry for, or taken in and protected than are males. This may only serve to encourage men to adopt female online identities.
Later in the piece, the topic shifts to the importance of proximity in relationships. The author felt that physical closeness to the person they were relating to was very important. It seems that being there, where the person can be seen, touched, and observed, conveys that the person is more genuine, sincere, and adds a physical dimension to one otherwise restricted to words on a screen.

I'm okay with the idea of inventing a false identity for online relationships. What you see isn't always what you get, and in an arena where it is so easy to create an identity, the Internet will be filled with people pretending to be someone else. It's a good way of putting yourself at a distance from the relationship, which gives a person a sense of control over the relationship.

The next topic in this issue is of expectations. In order to totally understand a situation, you must first have an idea of what is expected of the situation. These expectations need to be realistic and based on something real.
The example of the two women who would go to bars and tell made-up stories about themselves is a good example. Other people who would hear their stories had the expectation that the women were telling them the truth. This is a realistic expectation, as people don't usually believe that they are being misled in these situations.
This discussion of expectations is extended into the topic of chat rooms which use avatars. Initially, the author felt that his online persona was a fictional character, someone who ceased to exist when the computer was turned off. He quickly realized, though, that others did not always share his approach to the online experience when another person fell in love with his online persona. The other person expected that his personality and approach to the online environment was what he presented and similar to her own, that he took it as seriously as she did.

I would never expect that what I'm being told is the truth. Maybe some people are hurt by the idea that someone who doesn't know them would lie to them, but not me. I might lie about a few things myself. Of course, when an online relationship progresses to the point that you find yourself falling in love, I think the parties involved should take a step back and think, "What do I really know about this person?" If the answer is nothing, then I think that the relationship should not enter reality and should stay virtual.

This leads to the problem of what really lies behind online identities. We all have heard many stories where a man will leave his wife and family for an online love, only to discover that she is really very different from what she led him to believe. Tied up in these scenarios are issues of honesty, acceptance, deceit, and feelings of betrayal. Often, reality disappoints fantasy.
The following section is statistics about the growth and usage of the Internet. What they add up to is that the number of people getting online is increasing every year and the growth is expected to rise. Also, as time goes by, "nettiquette" will be widespread, and phenomena such as flaming and "inappropriate" romance s will decrease. wrote that people with different expectations of online relationships will behave in ways that show their differing expectations. For example, those who prefer to keep virtual relationships in the fantasy world may just frequent MOOs or MUDs, while those who want to meet someone in real life may visit sites specifically designed to get people together.
Still, he wrote, common sense is important when it comes to online relationships. It's important that people remember that people they meet online aren't always sincere and genuine. An indicator to the kind of person you're dealing with could be where you met them. If the environment makes you suspicious or wary of them, it's a good idea to pay attention to that sense of caution. Of course, not everyone has bad intentions, but personal safety should be a prime consideration when forging online relationships.
He also believes that as the younger generations gets online, they will become more savvy about online relationships and they won't have the kinds of problems that we are experiencing. He believes that they will be able to discern the good people (with good intentions) from those who have bad intentions.

I agree. The next generation will learn a lot from our mistakes, or at least I hope they will.

Among the G7 responses, it seemed that it was agreed that while virtual relationships are acceptable and even cool, they should not progress past a certain point. Most prefer to keep online relationships online, for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the whole idea is just more entertaining if it is kept online, or maybe because the uncertainty of what the person is really like. Most were also reluctant to invest too much emotional commitment to virtual relationships.
The next topic is Internet dependency. People have gotten so involved in their online life that it causes them a great deal of distress when an online relationship experiences a falling out, or if the online acquaintance does not participate in online activities anymore. Many of these people experience along with their online dependency, such as bipolar disorder, and OCD.
The last sections detailed how personal some online relationships became for some users. One guy had a friend who met his girlfriend online. Another experienced a great spiritual connection with a group of people online. Others wrestled with the Asian ideas of shame and embarrassment, and why their fears of looking foolish prevented them from being themselves online.

Chat Rooms
In my research, I found and was able to participate in only chat rooms. This is what I found.
People log in to different chat rooms, each different in its topic of discussion. Some talk about sports, others, music, and so on. They give themselves a name. I used my middle name. As soon as I joined in the General chat room, I was bombarded with questions as to what I looked like, my age, where I was from, what kinds of things I liked, etc. If my likes corresponded with someone else's, we talked about those things.
People in that chat room I visited were very friendly. I felt some of their questions were a bit nosy, and there were some obnoxious people who made suggestive remarks, but aside from that, there were no negatives about this experience. I think people who go to chat rooms just like talking to and meeting new people. Maybe they're expanding their horizons by meeting people online, or maybe they just prefer to meet people in this kind of environment, rather than real life. And when they find someone who has things in common with them, it just gives them incentive to come back again. I started to feel as though this approach to meeting people had a few good benefits. In what other situation can you gracefully exit quickly if you don't like the people there? I also liked that you could invent yourself to others, and that you weren't really judged based on a physical appearance.

I see the future of human online relationships as a microcosm of society today. Online, people with similar interests and philosophies gather, and by discussion, or other forms of communication, they basically further their interests and philosophies. They may extend that to keep in touch regularly, or decide to meet face to face. In enough people are involved, they may even form virtual communities. But on the downside, there are still the same weirdos and nutties that haunt the offline world. I see the people online as a slice of the general population, diverse as ever. It's this diversity that makes the Internet so interesting.
I do think, though, that some people had expectations that the Internet could be a place where the negatives of society (racism, porn, etc.) could be barred from entering. To me, this is an unrealistic expectation. With access to the web as free as it is, and as easy as it is to put up web pages of one's own, there is no way we can totally filter the contents of the web. It would only be possible if there were some form of control over the web. But to many people, this smells of censorship, and it makes the web less appealing. The web could be sanitized, but at the expense of people's interest in it. It is not a worthwhile trade.

For future generations, I advise that expectations of what you find on the web be kept in check. Don't enter virtual relationships unless you're sure its what you want. This advice applies to platonic as well as romantic relationships. Don't be completely naive to the online world. But on the flip side, it's a good idea to forge online relationships with optimism. To make this a little simpler, I guess you can say that virtual relationships should be handled the way you would a real world relationship: careful of weird people, but still open to the experience.

Everyone Should Learn The Mindset Of Productive People

We all know people who just seem to get things done; but have you ever noticed that productive people tend to be happier and more well-rounded too?
The skills that achievers use to help them complete tasks, hit deadlines, and finish projects are the same skills that can help you become a happier, more balanced individual in every part of your life.
Everyone should aspire to build a productive mindset. Here are eight tips to improve both your productivity and your life:

Be Solution-focused

If you focus too long on a problem, it can really start to bog you down. You can end up going around in circles, feeling more and more frustrated and worried about the pickle you’re in, rather than doing anything to fix what’s wrong. Productive individuals take one good look at the problem and then immediately move on to search for solutions. Focusing on finding answers helps you feel more in control and gets you out of the problem more quickly. Finding solutions helps you accomplish things, and the sense of pride you get from that can make you feel happier too.

Put Down Boundaries

If you’re always saying ‘yes’ to people or going out of your way to accommodate others while neglecting your own needs and goals, you’re unlikely to meet your own targets, and you’re likely to end up feeling resentful and bitter. Learning to say ‘no’ to things that don’t serve you frees up your own time and promotes a feeling of self-respect. There’s nothing wrong with helping others or giving your time and attention to them, but you must only do so when it doesn’t cross your own boundaries or eat into what you need to do. Choose what and who you say ‘yes’ to carefully at home and at work.

Have a Healthy Routine

Some of the most productive people in the world swear by similar morning routines. Rising early to have an exercise session, a protein-rich breakfast, and a spot of meditation feature in many particularly productive people’s mornings from big business owners to presidents. Having a good start to the day gives you all sorts of benefits, including a clearer head, a healthier body, a better mood, and more focus.

Streamline your Life

You might marvel at how much productive people seem to get done in a day, but what you’ll usually find is that they’ve set things up in a way that makes it easier for them to succeed. Whether it’s putting automated systems in place, delegating, or just having all the necessary tools ready to hand, productive people have a head-start because they’ve simplified and streamlined their processes. If you invest a little time in decluttering, preparing, and organising, you’ll not only save yourself time in the long-run, but you’ll save yourself stress and headaches. And you’ll have much more time to do the things you really value later on.

Look at the Bigger Picture

Productive people don’t get distracted because they’ve always got the bigger picture in mind. They don’t think about a report as a piece of administration or see a spreadsheet as a list of numbers ‒- instead they view these things as necessary steps to achieve their goals. And beyond that, they’ll know why this particular goal is of value to them and how it will enhance their life overall. Whether it’s to make money, to gain security, or to revolutionise the world, productive people see tasks as vital cogs in the greater machinery of their project and their life. Whenever you need to do anything important, bear in mind how good it will make you feel to do it or how it will enhance your well-being. Focusing on these positive things allows you to stay motivated and happy at home and at work.

Be Positive About Yourself

People who don’t get things done are often waylaid by their own lack of self-belief. If you don’t think you’re capable of achieving anything, why even try? Productive people put their best foot forward and don’t allow negative self-talk to steer them away from their goals. Not only does a healthy sense of self-efficacy help you focus and achieve more, but respecting your unique skills, qualities and strengths will make you feel happier too. It’s really a self-fulfilling prophecy — if you pep talk yourself, you’ll probably find that you’ve got much more to cheer about because you’re more likely to perform better when you have a positive focus.

Know Nothing Has to Be Perfect

If you tried to be perfect in everything you did, you’d never ever get anything done. Perfection is an impossible marker, and trying to live up to it just leaves you feeling frustrated and depressed. Productive people focus on doing their very best, but don’t allow a few flaws to delay their dreams or stop their progress. Not only does letting go of perfectionism allow you to get more done, it also takes the pressure off you, letting you enjoy what you are doing and have more fun with it.

Respect Time

If you really thought about what’s precious in life, you’d realise that time is one of the most valuable commodities — it’s one that we only get a certain amount of, and once it’s gone, we can’t get it back. Productive people know the value of time and have a healthy respect for it, which is partly why they are able to stay so focused. You’d find it far less tempting to play Candy Crush if you knew it was your last day on Earth. Respect the time that you have in the world and it’ll be easier to live your life to the fullest, cherishing and enjoying every moment.

Video: Inescapable “Smart Bullets” Developed by DARPA for the US Military

\Cassius Methyl
May 4, 2015
(ANTIMEDIA) The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is arguably one of the most terrifying limbs of the US Government. Every week they announce progress on some outlandish new weapon. Though surely they want enemies to be terrified, the technology should not be taken lightly.
This time, they say they are in the late stages of developing bullets you can’t dodge — ‘smart bullets’ that will hit a target even if its aim is off. These smart bullets are .50 caliber rounds equipped with optical sensors.
In February, DARPA says they “passed their most successful round of live-fire tests to date”. The tests concluded that the shooter “repeatedly hit moving and evading targets”. The rounds take sharp turns in mid-air to hit targets in any situation.
DARPA’s statement continued, “Additionally, a novice shooter using the system for the first time hit a moving target.” The smart bullet program has been named EXACTO, an acronym for “Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance”.
“True to DARPA’s mission, EXACTO has demonstrated what was once thought impossible: the continuous guidance of a small-caliber bullet to target,” said DARPA’s program manager Jerome Dunn.
Jerome Dunn apparently believes DARPA’s mission is to arm this government with power the world has never seen, with no regard for  consequences.
“This live-fire demonstration from a standard rifle showed that EXACTO is able to hit moving and evading targets with extreme accuracy at sniper ranges unachievable with traditional rounds. Fitting EXACTO’s guidance capabilities into a small .50-caliber size is a major breakthrough and opens the door to what could be possible in future guided projectiles across all calibers,” Dunn continued.
Here is an animation of how the rounds work.

Picture the implications of armed drones with facial recognition technology, combined with a biometric database of every single American and these new smart bullets. These are all things DARPA has already created or is currently working on.
The power they will have if someone doesn’t stop this is unimaginable. If all goes to plan, DARPA will make the US government all but unstoppable. That’s a frightening prospect considering that studies have show the US government has become an oligarchy. DARPA could eventually enable the US Government to wage any war, destroy any enemy, and do anything else they want as long as they have funding. That’s no exaggeration.
So who will eventually realize that this is an impending danger that cannot be ignored? When will someone try to put a stop to DARPA? Considering the US’ history of turning weapons of war against its own citizens, these questions must be asked.
Please share this with as many people as possible.

Prep for moving to Cambodia

Cambodian “ordinary” visa. For anyone who is considering staying in Cambodia for an extended period of time, the ordinary visa (E class) is the best option. This visa used to be called the business visa but is now called the normal or ordinary visa. It is also valid for 30 days and costs $35.  The difference between the ordinary visa and the tourist visa is that the ordinary one can be extended indefinitely. Be aware that although the “ordinary” visa is often called a “business visa,” it does not confer the right to work in Cambodia. In order to be legally employed, you will need a Cambodia work permit.

Malaria: Prophylaxis is recommended for all areas except Phnom Penh and around Lake Tonle Sap. Lariam (mefloquine), Malarone (atovaquone/proguanil), or doxycycline are the recommended drugs, except for the western provinces of Preah Vihear, Siemreap, Oddar, Meanchey, Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Pailin, Koh Kong, and Pursat, where mefloquine should not be used because of the presence of mefloquine-resistant malaria in the areas near the Thai border.

Hepatitis ARecommended for all travelers
TyphoidRecommended for all travelers
Yellow feverRequired for all travelers greater than one year of age arriving from a yellow-fever-infected area in Africa or the Americas and for travelers who have been in transit more than 12 hours in an airport located in a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. Not recommended otherwise.
Japanese encephalitisFor travelers who may spend a month or more in rural areas and for short-term travelers who may spend substantial time outdoors in rural areas, especially after dusk
Hepatitis BRecommended for all travelers
RabiesFor travelers spending a lot of time outdoors, or at high risk for animal bites, or involved in any activities that might bring them into direct contact with bats
Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)Two doses recommended for all travelers born after 1956, if not previously given
Tetanus-diphtheriaRevaccination recommended every 10 years

7 best places to visit in Cambodia

Tired of Thailand? Give Cambodia a go. Here are seven amazing places you've got to visit.

Tired of Thailand? Want to experience a slice of ancient Southeast Asia? Give Cambodia a go.

It may not have the same Full Moon party reputation of its neighbour, nor the historical notoriety of next-door Vietnam. But don't let that put you off exploring this beautiful country, full of ancient temples and stunning landscapes - and there's plenty of cheap beer!
Having brought us the best of Vietnam, our roving reporter Cat McGloin shares her seven must-see places in Cambodia:

1. Phnom Penh

Cambodia's capital teems with tuk-tuk drivers and street food vendors. Weave through the city, spotting roadside pagodas nestled amongst grand French colonial houses. Why not try a local delicacy, deep fried tarantula? When cocktail hour calls, there's no better place to catch a sundowner and appreciate some colonial grandeur than at the Foreign Correspondence Club on the bank on the Mekong River that runs through the city.

2. The Killing Fields

Just outside Phnom Penh lies one of the largest mass graves sites in Cambodia, where it is estimated over one million Cambodians were executed during the Khmer Rouge regime. The scale of the site, coupled with the tales told over your audio guide, is deeply moving and provides real insight in to the country's violent past, as well as the regime's enduring legacy. You can couple your visit here with a trip to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum by bargaining with a tuk-tuk driver.
