High Tech School Of Future

Friday, September 29, 2006

Philadelphia has opened a public high school where students work on wireless laptops, teachers eschew traditional subjects for real-world topics and parents can track their child's work on the Internet. Called "The School of the Future" and created with help from software giant Microsoft, it is believed to be the first in the world to combine innovative teaching methods with the latest technology, all housed in an environmentally friendly building. The school, which cost the school district $63 million to build, is free and has no entrance exams. The idea for the school was born in September 2003, when Philadelphia public school district CEO Paul Valis met with Microsoft executives. The two parties discussed working together on formulating the high-tech school of the future so that it could be a template for other areas around the country. The school came to fruition this year.

Student still sit in classrooms, but lessons rely heavily on information found on the Internet and on interactive software. Students will be allowed to learn at their own pace. Homework is done on computer and sent to the teacher for grading and parents can access the school's network to read teacher feedback on their child's progress. Students -- who are called "learners" -- use smart cards to register attendance. classroom furniture is on wheels to allow for group work in varying configurations.

Each student has been provided a Gateway laptop computer with wireless Internet access. And every classroom has interactive Whiteboards - large, electronic writing surfaces that communicate with computers and take the place of old-fashioned blackboards. The students command their own wireless laptops for school and home use and are connected to the school's centralized high-tech network for learning and administration. Teachers, or "educators," rather than using blackboards, have interactive "smart boards" that allow teachers to zoom in and out, write or draw, and even link to the Internet.

Bill Gates' House Tour

Wednesday, September 20, 2006

Take a virtual tour of the Bill Gates Mansion where he stays with his family.

The Bill Gates family lives in the exclusive suburb of Medina, Washington, in a huge earth-sheltered home in the side of a hill overlooking Lake Washington.

Billionaire Bill Gates home is a very modern 21st century house in the "Pacific lodge" style, with advanced electronic systems everywhere. In one respect though it is more like an 18th or 19th century mansion: it has a large private library with a domed reading room. While it does have a classic flavour, the home has many unique qualities.

Lights would automatically come on when you came home. Speakers would be hidden beneath the wallpaper to allow music to follow you from room to room. Portable touch pads would control everything from the TV sets to the temperature and the lights, which would brighten or dim to fit the occasion or to match the outdoor light.

Visitors to Bill Gates House are surveyed and given a microchip upon entrance. This small chip sends signals throughout the house, and a given room's temperature and other conditions will change according to preset user preferences. According to King County public records, as of 2002, the total assessed value of the property (land and house) is $113 million, and the annual property tax is just over $1 million.

According to the National Association of Home Builders, the median American house size is slightly more than 2,000 square feet. Microsoft founder William Gates III house is more than 30 times that size.

Bill Gates House Address: 1835 73rd Ave NE, Medina, WA 98039

Nissan Urge: The Concept Car

This year's British Motorshow is by far the best in recent memory. Following awkward shows at Birmingham and Earl's Court, the Excel centre at London's Docklands lends itself extremely well to this new role. The unique waterside venue, coupled with the UK's exceptional weather have combined to make this one of the best motor show venues worldwide.

Nissan brought their 'Urge' concept to the party following its unveiling at the beginning of the year. The unfortunately named concept is good fun to look at and incorporates all the DNA of a small Nissan whilst still looking bold and fresh. The Urge's aesthetic was inspired by motorcycle styling and materials whilst the interior transforms into an Xbox gaming station when parked

Web Insult

Tuesday, September 19, 2006

If you ever have the need to insult someone but don't really want them to get mad at you, you need Web Insult. Apart from being a transient amusement, Web Insult insults people in a Monty Python-esk' style. And if they do get mad at you (after they figured out what you were talking about) you can be miles away already.There are four insult styles to choose from: Modern, Shakespearean, Arabian and Mediterranean. Here are some examples:
You undisciplined sliver of wild belly-button fluff.
You lost eruption of hairy lizard droppings.
You congealed accumulation of fresh cooking fat.
May emergency medical technicians eat each other's belly-button fluff on your lawn.

Some Interesting facts about Bill Gates

1. Bill Gates earns US$250 every SECOND, that's about US$20
Million a DAY and US$7.8 Billion a YEAR!

2. If he drops a thousand dollar, he won't even bother to pick
it up b'coz the 4 seconds he picks it, he would've already earned
it back.

3. The US National debt is about 5.62 trillion, if
Bill Gates were to pay the debt by himself; he will finish it in
less then 10 years.

4. He can donate US$15 to everyone on earth but still be left
with US$5 Million for his pocket money.

5. Michael Jordan is the highest paid athlete in US.
If he doesn't drink and eat, and keeps up his annual income i.e.
US$30 Million, he'll have to wait for 277 years to become as
rich as Bill Gates is now.

6. If Bill Gates was a country, he would be the 37th richest
country on earth.

7. If you change all of Bill Gate's money to US$1 notes, you can
make a road from earth to moon, 14 times back and forth. But you
have to make that road non-stop for 1,400 years, and use a total
of 713 BOEING 747 planes to transport all the money.

8. Bill Gates is 40 this year. If we assume that he will live
for another 35 years, he has to spend US$6.78 Million per day to
finish all his money before he can go to heaven.

Last but not the least:

If Microsoft Windows' users can claim US$1 for every time their
computers hang because of Microsoft Windows, Bill Gates will be
bankrupt in 3 years!

Strange Vehicles

Friday, September 15, 2006

Large, well-known manufacturers are responsible for a large portion of unusual vehicles. In attempts to further the boundaries of vehicle design these manufacturers often produce outrageous concepts, some enter production, others are confined to the history books. Small manufacturing companies attempting to get in the vehicle market regularly produce strange, but effective vehicles in order to corner their own section of the competitive vehicle market.And sometimes an eccentric with time and money on their hands creates a personal masterpiece.

Boutique Cars

Tuesday, September 05, 2006

Famous for hosting the wildest, most forward-thinking products in the automotive world, the Geneva Motor Show has always been a haven for the avant-garde and futuristic. The 2005 show did not disappoint in this regard, as the big players in the car industry showed off their new toys -- cars that, for the most part, look like they belong in a science-fiction film.
In addition to the Fords, Hondas and Toyotas of the world, the Geneva Motor Show is also a venue for the projects that smaller carmakers are working on. These companies, often referred to as boutique carmakers, usually produce extremely small fleets, and market only to the very specific demographic that has the gall, and the wealth, to drive such rarities.

1- 2005 Laraki Fulgara

Estimated price: $555,750

The brainchild of Casablanca-based manufacturer Laraki, the Fulgura is only one of two beautiful specimens produced by this boutique carmaker. Laraki has stated that one of their missions is to design some of the most innovative cars in the world, and they certainly achieved this feat with the Fulgura. With its aggressive nose, sleek headlights and a large skirt kit, this car looks like a Lamborghini Murcielago on steroids. Just as with our favorite ladies, however, all the action is at the back , where the Fulgura's abrupt behind is highlighted by six cool-looking taillights and a centered dual-exhaust setup.

Under the hood, a twin turbo V12 engine pushes to a maximum of 680 horsepower, propelling the Fulgura from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds. A 2,700 mm wheelbase and recent refinements to its handling allow the six-speed Fulgura to follow the winding streets of its native Morocco with ease, without having to forgo speed.

Cool feature: A sleek, lightweight, carbon-fiber body lets the Fulgura fly that much faster on the road.
