Web design 2017 – What to expect from the websites of tomorrow

Age responsive design, De-Linearity and failure mapping are just some of the keywordsyou will come across when searching for the web design trends in 2017.

In order to build the perfect website for your business today, you should look into the web design trends of the future. And as with any development in the IT world, the future is just around the corner! The first fundament you will need to consider is the “mobile first” approach. In 2015, the global amount of those people accessing the WWW via a mobile device overtook those surfing from their desktops. As a result, web designers and marketing agencies changed their tactics from mobile-friendly to mobile-first websites. Not the desktop sets the standards for the design of the site, but mobile devices, like smartphones and tablet computers. Designers first create a “small” version of the website and then convert the lay out and navigation to the big desktops screens. At a first glance, this might look like a step back for the companies presenting their products or services on the internet, but this approach is actually positive. They can only showcase the essence of their core content, making it clearer for the user and thus more effective. FULL POST

Elon Musk’s ‘Matrix-like’ plans to install computers in human brains

Elon Musk

By Mark Ellis

Tesla and Space-X tech mogul Elon Musk has strong opinions about artificial intelligence (AI), suggesting that AI may “summon the demon” that will put humanity at risk or turn us all into the house pets of machines.

He believes AI may be even more dangerous than nuclear weapons.

To fight the perceived dangers, Musk is planning to unveil new computers that can be placed directly in human brains, what some call “neural lace.” The phrase was first conceived by science fiction writer Iain M. Banks and refers to a way of interfacing computers directly with human thoughts.

In a January 25th tweet, Musk confirmed his firm is working on neural lace and he promised to reveal details of their research in February.

Neural lace is essentially a wireless mesh that can serve as an interface between a computing device implanted into the brain and the brain’s biological circuitry. The neural lace could potentially be programmed to control chemicals released by the brain’s neurons, enhancing intelligence, memory, and other functionality. FULL POST

Last man on the moon became convinced of God’s existence

Eugene Cernan

By Mark Ellis

Apollo 17 Astronaut Eugene Cernan – the last man to walk on the surface of the moon – left the earth’s gravitational pull once more as his soul jettisoned into eternity. He was 82.

Cernan died Monday in a Houston hospital surrounded by family members as a result of “ongoing health issues,” according to a statement by his family posted on NASA’s website.

On his last mission to the moon in December 1972 he said he felt like he was looking back at the earth from “God’s front porch,” saying the experience convinced him of the existence of a Creator.

On that mission, Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, a scientist, steered their lunar rover through a valley where they managed to collect 294 pounds of rock and soil samples, the largest quantity astronauts would ever retrieve.

Cernan accidentally tore off one of the rover’s fenders with a rock hammer that protruded from his pocket. Cernan recognized it had to be fixed, and improvised a creative solution using geology maps and duct tape. FULL POST

2017 Intelligent Design Seminars & Top Darwinist Story of 2016

2017 Summer Seminars on Intelligent Design: Opportunity to Join the World of ID Scholarship

Wiki

You can spend hours reading about intelligent design, its arguments and evidence, but there's no substitute for personal interactions with the top scholars in the field. That's especially true for rising scientists and scholars interested in advancing ID-related research themselves.

That's why each year Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture offers the Summer Seminars on Intelligent Design. Intended primarily for college undergraduates (juniors and seniors) and graduate students, the Summer Seminars offer the opportunity to learn from the stars of the ID community -- like Stephen Meyer, Douglas Axe, Michael Behe, Jonathan Wells, Ann Gauger, Richard Sternberg, John West, Paul Nelson, Robert Marks, Scott Minnich, Jay Richards, and more.

The next Seminar will take place in Seattle from July 7 to 15. It is an invaluable chance to take a first step in what might be the beginning of a career in advanced ID research. Many graduates of this program go on to just such promising futures. You'll be hearing from them in due course.

More information is here. The Seminar comprises two tracks, the CSC Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences, and the C.S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society.

Last year the program had fifty participants, the biggest group yet, and diverse in every way. But applying is highly selective. In past years the program has had students from Berkeley, Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge, Ohio State, New York University, the University of Washington -- and around the world: Ghana, Brazil, Italy, Jamaica, Australia, Canada, Norway, China, the United Kingdom, and the Philippines.

There really is no deeper way to explore the science of ID or its relevance to the humanities. See here for reviews from our past students. The deadline is April 4.

Discovery Institute covers room and board, with travel scholarships available based on need.

If you're not a student, Discovery Institute also holds open a small number of spots for professionals, professors and scientists, clergy, and teachers. If you know someone who might be interested and qualified, please spread the word.

Top Darwinist Story of 2016

The cultural buzz over evolution from Darwinist media is uncritically supportive (they ignore the major weaknesses). Evolution News & Views (ENV) offers an alternative. Here is the top ENV story of 2016. It is about December's Royal Society meeting in London. This three-day conference on "New Trends in Evolutionary Biology" did not receive the media attention it deserved. Here's the ENV story about it.

Oh, there were a few reports. Writing for the Huffington Post, science journalist Suzan Mazur complained of a lack of momentousness: "[J]ust what was the point of attracting a distinguished international gathering if the speakers had little new science to present? Why waste everyone's time and money?" On the other hand, a write-up in The Atlantic by Carl Zimmer acknowledged a sense of strain between rival cliques of evolutionists: "Both sides offered their arguments and critiques in a civil way, but sometimes you could sense the tension in the room -- the punctuations of tsk-tsks, eye-rolling, and partisan bursts of applause."

Mild drama notwithstanding, why should anyone care about this meeting? FULL POST
