Bigbrand logos that you should look more closely at

first_imgChina could be the biggest loser from the Saudi Arabia oil attack A BRAND’S LOGO speaks to customers on many levels – whether we realise it or not.There’s the initial recognisability factor—if a logo is too complex or unrelated to its brand, it risks being glanced over without communicating its brand’s message. For that reason, modern logos tend to err on the side of boldness and simplicity.But a closer look at many logos reveals more subtle marketing tactics.You may have noticed the subliminal features of some of these designs in the past. But have you looked hard enough to see them all?1. FedExThe FedEx logo hides an arrow in its negative space (between the ‘E’ and the ‘X’. Even a glance inspires thoughts of efficiency and forward motion.2. VaioThis logo for Sony’s computers represents the brand’s integration of analog and digital technology. The ‘VA’ is designed as an analog waveform, the ‘IO’ is binary code. Clever lads.3. Baskin RobbinsThis logo, introduced in 2005, cleverly uses the company’s initials to advertise its number of ice cream flavours (31).4. Le Tour de France See how smoggy downtown LA was the day before Trump is expected to demolish California’s attempts to tackle auto emissions 16-year-old Greta Thunberg met with Obama and chided senators, saying they’re not trying hard enough to fight climate change center_img Slightly more abstract than the other examples, the Tour de France logo contains a well-integrated biker.5. TobleroneSee the dancing bear in the mountain? The design is a tribute to the Swiss town where the chocolate was developed.6. Milwaukee BrewersCan you see the baseball glove?7. AmazonThe cleverness of this logo is twofold. The arrow points from a to z, referring to all that is available on Amazon.com, and it doubles as a satisfied smile (with dimple).8. Sun MicrosystemsBefore it was bought by Oracle, Sun was a major computer manufacturer. Its logo is a perfect ambigram; it can be read from any direction. (Note also that the graphic doesn’t actually include an S, merely artfully arranged u’s and n’s.)9. Coca-ColaThe soda brand’s latest campaign in Denmark points out something you may have missed; the Danish flag (with a bulge) embedded in the white script.9 famous logo changes in 2012 that you may not have noticedHere’s how much the world’s most iconic logos cost companies to design themGALLERY: 20 company logos from before they were famous 10 things in tech you need to know today last_img read more

IMF admits errors in Greek program

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram An internal review of the Greek bailout program by the International Monetary Fund has found that the organization made serious errors during the last three years and that the European Commission’s decision making was also suspect.The report is due to be published on Thursday but extracts were leaked by the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday. According to the report, the IMF admitted that it underestimated the recessionary impact of the fiscal policies Greece was asked to implement as part of the bailouts, the first of which was agreed in May 2010. “The fiscal targets became even more ambitious once the downturn exceeded expectations,” the report said.However, it acknowledges that more funds would have been needed if the macroeconomic projections had been accurate.“While earlier adjustment of the targets could have tempered the contraction, the program would have then required additional financing,” the document said, according to the Wall Street Journal.The report also highlights the errors made in projecting the country’s debt and suggests that Greece should not have qualified for further loans due to doubts about the sustainability of its debt.The Fund, however, described the bailout as a “holding operation” that gave the rest of the eurozone time to protect itself from any negative consequences of the crisis in Greece.The IMF also highlights problems in coordination with the other troika members, particularly the European Commission, which “tended to draw up policy positions by consensus… and had no experience with crisis management.” The Washington-based body also accuses Brussels of not being “able to contribute much to identifying growth-enhancing structural reforms.”The Fund suggests that the restructuring of Greece’s enormous debt, which was carried out in March 2012, should have been carried out much earlier but that it would have been difficult to get other eurozone members to agree because some of their banks held a considerable amount of Greek government bonds.The report also criticizes Greek governments for failing to progress convincingly enough with structural reforms and not spreading the burden of fiscal adjustment evenly across society, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Eau lAfrique va échouer à remplir les objectifs du millénaire selon lOnu

first_imgEau : l’Afrique va échouer à remplir les objectifs du millénaire selon l’OnuSelon le Programme des Nations unies pour l’environnement (PNUE), la plupart des pays africains vont échouer à remplir les objectifs du millénaire fixés par l’Onu. Seulement huit des 53 pays du continent devraient réussir à réduire de moitié le pourcentage de leur population sans accès à un système d’épuration des eaux, d’ici 2015.L’Algérie, le Maroc, la Tunisie, la Libye, le Botswana, l’Angola, l’Afrique du Sud et l’Egypte seront les seuls qui parviendront à remplir les objectifs du millénaire sur l’eau, s’inquiète le PNUE.Selon l’AFP, seulement 242 millions de personnes en Afrique sur plus d’un milliard avaient accès à un système d’épuration des eaux en 2006, et les objectifs du millénaire arrêtés en 2000 par l’Onu impliqueraient que 370 millions de personnes supplémentaires en bénéficient d’ici 2015.En revanche, la situation est un peu meilleure concernant l’accès à l’eau potable, même si “à présent, seulement 26 des 53 pays du continent africain sont sur les rails pour atteindre cet objectif”, relève le PNUE. En Afrique, 341 millions de personnes n’avaient pas accès à une eau potable en 2006. Selon le PNUE, les progrès restent “insuffisants par rapport à la croissance démographique” du continent.L’AFP rappelle que l’Afrique abrite 15% de la population mondiale mais seulement 9% des réserves d’eau.Le 28 novembre 2010 à 12:01 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

La Google TV débarquera en France à la rentrée

first_imgLa Google TV débarquera en France à la rentréeLe géant de Mountain View prépare activement l’arrivée de son service de vidéos à la demande (VoD) dans l’hexagone. Alors qu’elle peine à démarrer outre-Atlantique, la Google TV devrait être lancée au mois de septembre prochain en France.S’il n’a pas rencontré le succès escompté aux Etats-Unis, Google n’abandonne pas son service de VoD et le lancera dans quelques mois en France. Selon les Echos, c’est en septembre que la Google TV devrait débarquer dans l’hexagone.À lire aussiÉquinoxe du Printemps : pourquoi tombe-t-il le 20 mars ?Elle différera du service proposé en outre-Atlantique par les boîtiers qui permettront d’y accéder. Aux Etats-Unis, le service de vidéos à la demande du géant de Mountain View est disponible depuis un téléviseur connecté, mais en France, les consommateurs n’auront pas besoin de changer de télé puisque la Google TV sera proposée via deux box commercialisées par Sony, affirme le quotidien. Le premier boîtier devrait être “un simple décodeur et sera commercialisé autour de 200 euros”, tandis que le second, qui embarquera un lecteur Blu-Ray, sera vendu environ 300 euros. Connectées à leur téléviseur, les box fonctionnant sous Android offriront un accès à YouTube comme aux contenus du service Google Play.Reste désormais à accomplir la dernière et la plus difficile étape avant le lancement de la Google TV : négocier avec des chaînes de télévisions peu enthousiastes à l’idée de voir le géant de Mountain View arriver sur le marché de la TV connectée. Elles craignent de perdre le contrôle de leurs contenus, mais aussi de se voir lier à des programmes et services sans leur consentement.Le 2 avril 2012 à 21:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Nappe de pétrole dans le golfe du Mexique

first_imgNappe de pétrole dans le golfe du MexiqueLe groupe pétrolier anglo-néerlandais Shell a révélé hier qu’une “légère” nappe d’hydrocarbure avait été détectée dans une zone du golfe du Mexique. Toutefois, pour l’heure, aucune fuite n’a été détectée.Dans un communiqué, la société anglo-néerlandaise Shell révèle avoir observé une “légère” nappe d’hydrocarbure à 210 kilomètres au sud-est de La Nouvelle-Orléans en Louisiane. Cette remarque intervient après que l’agence américaine de protection de l’environnement (BSEE) a remarqué la nappe mercredi à 17H30 GMT. Le groupe pétrolier en a alors été immédiatement informé. Shell aurait averti les gardes-côtes américains plus de quatre heures plus tard (21H45).À lire aussiDes scientifiques mettent au point une technique révolutionnaire pour débarrasser les océans du plastiqueCeux-ci ont annoncé avoir dépêché un hélicoptère et des experts pour enquêter sur cette nappe de seize kilomètres de long sur 1,6 kilomètre de large, rapporte TV5monde. L’origine de la nappe et “les causes sont pour l’heure inconnues”, ont indiqué les garde-côtes dans un communiqué, précisant prendre “la chose très au sérieux et prendre toutes les mesures possibles de pollution”.Pourtant Shell a indiqué qu’une inspection de ses installations avait montré que ses “activités sont normales dans la zone, sans aucun signe de fuite”. “Il n’y a aucun problème de contrôle de nos puits liés à nos opérations dans la zone”, a ajouté le groupe pétrolier, selon lequel la nappe est estimée à six barils, soit un peu moins d’un millier de litres.Le 13 avril 2012 à 13:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Test your film prowess with textless movie posters

first_imgMovie posters are a lost art. Most of the responsibilities nowadays have gone to computers and marketing companies, with some notable exceptions. To have an iconic movie poster is something only reserved for an iconic movie. Sometimes the poster is the only thing you remember.There’s something to be said about a poster that, even without the text identifying it, is still instantly recognizable, whether it’s due to the characters or the imagery.Textless movie posters are all over the internet. Imgur user Bones55 recently reposted a large collection of around 80 (and they’re alphabetically ordered, thank God), but the images have been going around for ages. There are immense archives with thousands of textless movie posters on forums across the internet and every once in a while, a select few get uploaded to Reddit.Coincidentally, many of the posters in the collection were designed by Drew Struzan, who’s best known for creating the iconic, vintage-inspired posters from the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises.You can go through the archives and, without looking at the captions, guess which films they belong to. I’ve included 12 below that you can work on identifying. They also make for a good rotating collection of phone backgrounds.You can view the full collection on Imgur.last_img read more

Oldest Ever Galaxies Discovered Outside Milky Way

first_imgStay on target Scientists Discover Possible Interstellar VisitorWater Vapor Detected on Potentially ‘Habitable’ Planet Physicists have uncovered some of the very first galaxies that formed in our Universe.Data collected by academics from the Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC) at Durham University and Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics suggest that a number of known galaxies are more than 13 billion years old.“Finding some of the very first galaxies that formed in our Universe orbiting the Milky Way’s own backyard is the astronomical equivalent of finding the remains of the first humans that inhabited the Earth,” Carlos Frenk, director of Durham University’s ICC, said in a statement. “It is hugely exciting.AdChoices广告Here’s something they don’t teach you in history class: When the Universe was about 380,000 years old, the first hydrogen atoms formed and collected into clouds that cooled and settled into “halos” of dark matter.That cooling phase, known as the “cosmic dark ages,” lasted about 100 million years, at which point the halo gas became unstable and formed stars—the first ever galaxies. Among them: Segue-1, Bootes I, Tucana II, and Ursa Major I.Based on that knowledge, the team identified two populations of satellite galaxies circling the Milky Way. One is very faint, composed of nebulae created during the cosmic dark ages. The other is slightly brighter, made of galaxies formed hundreds of millions of years later.“A decade ago, the faintest galaxies in the vicinity of the Milky Way would have gone under the radar,” according to Sownak Bose, a former Ph.D. student at the ICC, now a research fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.“With the increasing sensitivity of present and future galaxy censuses,” he continued, “a whole new trove of the tiniest galaxies has come into the light, allowing us to test theoretical models in new regimes.”The findings are detailed in a paper published this week by The Astrophysical Journal.The science of space continues to captivate, as astronomers make exciting discoveries about the early Solar System and life beyond Earth.

County Council District 1 race Mutual respect tensions tangle

first_imgClark County Councilor Jeanne Stewart pushed back against a suggestion that the county wasn’t doing enough to address homelessness during an interview of candidates running for her position by The Columbian Editorial Board.During the interview, Temple Lentz, one of her Democratic opponents, remarked that the issue of homelessness is treated as a problem facing the city of Vancouver rather than the whole region. She suggested that the county should consider going to the voters with a housing and homelessness levy similar to what the city of Vancouver did in 2016.“What I’d like to see the county do is be a more active partner rather than sort of holding the line and saying, ‘We’re doing what we’re supposed to do,’ ” said Lentz. “It’s clearly not enough.”“Well, I’m disappointed to hear a claim that the county isn’t doing anything or isn’t doing enough,” shot back Stewart, who stressed the need to address substance abuse disorders, mental illness and other root causes of homelessness. She also said the county is considering how to direct extra money in the county’s mental health sales tax fund.“There’s limited things that the county can do,” said former state Rep. Jim Moeller, the other Democrat in the race. He suggested that the county could adopt zoning changes to address the issue. He also highlighted his career as a chemical dependency counselor at Kaiser Permanente, which he said gave him insights into people’s struggles.last_img read more

Engine trouble blamed for fatal Kasilof plane crash

first_imgAn initial report finds that engine trouble was likely to blame for a fatal plane crash in Kasilof last month.A loss of engine power is being blamed for an August plane crash near Cohoe Loop Road in Kasilof that killed two local residents. The National Transportation Safety Board released an initial report last week about the Aug. 22 crash of a Cessna 180 that killed pilot Brian Nolan, 69, and passenger Peter Lahndt, 57, both of Kasilof.Weather at the time of the crash was mild, with clear skies, light winds from the northwest at 8 knots, and visibility to 10 miles.The reports states that a homeowner standing on his deck overlooking Cook Inlet at about 8:20 p.m. saw the Cessna flying low along the beach then climb to about 300 feet, about 100 feet above treeline. The homeowner reports hearing a reduction in engine power as the nose of the plane leveled out of the climb, followed by a sound that was consistent with an engine misfiring. The plane descended into a tree-covered area just over the bluff and the homeowner then heard what sounded like the plane crashing into the trees.Another person in the area also told NTSB investigators that he heard noises that sounded like the engine sputtering right before the crash.The plane burst into flames immediately upon impact. At the time, Clint Johnson, Alaska NTSB chief, said that the blaze made the crash not survivable. Investigators at the site Aug. 23 reported that the fire had incinerated the fuselage and left wing of the plane.NTSB will examine the plane’s frame and its engine, a Continental Motors 0-470 series, before making its final report.Nolan was well known to radio stations across Alaska, as he constructed, serviced and installed antennae throughout the state, first with Southcentral Communications, which he co-founded in 1977, and later with Nolan Brothers, founded in 2002. He is survived by his wife, two kids and two grandkids.Lahndt was raised and still lived on the family homestead in Kasilof. He owned and operated Kasilof Construction Company. He leaves behind his wife, three kids and seven grandkids.last_img read more

He grew up in Soldotna and now works as a Youth Advocate for the Kenaitze Indian Tribe’s Yaghanen Youth Center in Soldotna.“This meat was hung – it develops a crust on it. So right now we are stripping it off so we can butcher this meat and give it to our elders,” Evanoff said as he carefully stripped the outside layer off a large, burgundy leg of moose.This past weekend the group of young men went hunting on the Kenai through the Center and they were successful.Evanoff showed 15-year-old Wally James how to peel a piece of white tendon off the meat.James is a freshman at Kenai Central High School. Yup’ik and originally from Russian Mission, he moved to Kenai last year. He has been moose hunting before.“It reminds me of when I go hunting and fishing in my hometown with my sister and family,” James said.Standing in the large warehouse-like building surrounded by seven young men butchering meat at four tables, Yaghanen Youth Center administrator Michael Bernard said it’s not just about putting food in the freezer.“The concept is that we are providing a safe, positive atmosphere where young people can come and learn that it is okay to be substance free,” Bernard said.Yaghanen is a prevention and early intervention organization that provides a safe environment for youth.The harvest and processing of the moose, Bernard said, is also a way to convey critical, traditional values to young men.“The activities that we do have a cultural relevance to them. We are touching on several if not many of the cultural values, the hard work, sharing, teamwork and providing for our elders,” Bernard said.Moose is a traditional food for Kenaitze Indians. The camp is free and open to all young men in the community –Native and non-Native alike.The young men receive training on gun safety, knife-handling, butchering and food handling. They also learned about moose natural history and how to build survival shelters.Bernard said they try to schedule the camps during school vacations and are working with the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District to allow students to earn elective credit for attending the camps.Gideon Collver is a junior at Soldotna High School. The 16-year-old is not Alaska Native and says he had never gone moose hunting before. He says the best part was being in the woods and learning about respect for the animal.“Kind of an inward respect. Treating it with respect,” Collver said. “We were all fairly silent when we got it. Seeing that it had given its life so that we could have food. It gave me more respect for the Dena’ina and how their survival depended on something else’s death.”Kenaitze tribal member Sandy Wilson is a Youth Advocate at the Yaghanen Youth Center. She says the camp is also about building pride and confidence.“Teaching our culture makes them proud of who they are and teaches them where they come from and so when we teach our culture it gives them a sense of pride,” Wilson said.Wilson is also the mother of several children involved in programs at the youth center.Her oldest son, 23-year-old Jonathan Wilson started attending activities at the youth center when he was in sixth grade.  Now he’s a mentor in the program.“I’m the oldest of eight and all of them are coming up through this program, so it is kind of something for me to watch them grow,” Wilson said.In Kenai, at the tribe’s senior center, the young men deliver the meat to elders.Kathleen Zaukar, originally from Sleetmute, has lived Kenai for several years. She says she does not have any moose meat in the freezer this year and she is happy to have some freshly-delivered from the young men.“I got me a kidney,” Zaukar said.A delicacy that Zaukar said she will eat fried.“And it’s great that they teach them how to do that. Because that’s our culture, and if we don’t have our culture anymore then we don’t got nothing,” said Zaukar.Next time, Zaukar said she’s putting in a request for moose ribs — her favorite.In addition to the moose camp, Yaghanen Youth Center hosts a fish camp, an archaeology camp, a science camp and a construction camp. They also have after school programs that prepare students for Native youth Olympics and that teach archery, native dance and drumming. All the camps and programs are open to Native and non-Native students alike.

Crytek had Crysis 3 ready to launch on Wii U

first_imgAt the beginning of January we learned that Crytek was more than willing to port Crysis 3 over to the Wii U hardware. Ultimately they didn’t because EA and Nintendo decided it just wasn’t worth it from a business perspective. Both publisher and platform holder didn’t think the game would sell enough to warrant the cost of publishing.Two months on from that and Crytek president Cevat Yerli has revealed that they actually had the game running on the Wii U before it got canceled. Not only that, but the developer was “very close to launching it” according to Yerli.His comments were made during an interview with GamesBeat where he went on to say there was no business support from EA or Nintendo for the game. There was also no way for Crytek to self-publish the game as they don’t hold the rights–EA does.So to be clear, both Nintendo and EA rejected a game that was already running on the hardware and ready to launch, is an established series that is guaranteed to sell units, and is currently topping the sales charts on other competing platforms.What possible reason is there not to release that game? Did they think it wouldn’t even make back the cost of producing the discs and marketing? Or was it a case that they decided Wii U owners were not the type of audience that would be interested in buying the FPS?Whatever the case, it seems likely that if Nintendo is happy to make such a decision for Crysis 3, then other games in the same genre could meet a similar fate.last_img read more

Researchers measure Brazil nut effect in reduced gravity

Right: Acceleration profile of the infeed slide and the attached experiment container for an experiment with gamb = gMars. Credit: arXiv:1304.0569 [cond-mat.soft] Citation: Researchers measure Brazil nut effect in reduced gravity (2013, April 9) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-04-brazil-nut-effect-gravity.html (Phys.org) —A combined team of researchers from the Technical University of Braunschweig in Germany and Kobe University in Japan has determined that the Brazil nut effect is less pronounced as gravity is reduced. The team describes tests they undertook both in the lab and as part of a simulated reduced gravity environment aboard an airplane in their paper they’ve uploaded to the preprint server arXiv, and the results they found after analyzing their observations. Nut-cracking monkeys use shapes to strategize their use of tools © 2013 Phys.orgcenter_img Journal information: arXiv The Brazil nut effect comes from the real world where the largest nuts in a can of mixed nuts—quite often Brazil nuts—tend to rise to the top of the container that holds them during transport. This occurs as the can is shaken—smaller nuts work their way down into smaller open areas, forcing larger nuts to rise towards the surface. The effect has been well studied under normal gravity conditions on Earth, but until now no one has thought to see how it might hold up under conditions such as those that are found on Mars or the Moon.To find out, the researchers conducted experiments using glass beads rather than nuts—first in the lab, then aboard an A300 Airbus that was repeatedly allowed to descend rapidly enough to counteract the normal pull of gravity. In each case, large 8mm glass beads were put first in a container, followed by smaller 1mm glass beads. As different gravity conditions were met, the containers were shaken and the bead movement inside video recorded.In analyzing the video, the researchers found that as gravity was decreased, the Brazil nut effect was reduced as well. The larger glass beads were more easily able to make their way to the top of the container under normal Earth gravity conditions than they were under reduced gravity conditions that simulated those found on the Moon and on Mars. They noted also that the change was roughly linear.This research effort was not simply for curiosity’s sake—gaining a better understanding of the Brazil nut effect on other bodies under different gravity conditions will likely help scientists gain a better understanding of their underlying structure and could help with such future projects as mining expeditions. The researchers note that other factors could also come into play with the Brazil nut effect in other environments, such as cohesion between particles that could impact the outcome. More research will have to be done to find out if that is the case. More information: Granular convection and the Brazil nut effect in reduced gravity, arXiv:1304.0569 [cond-mat.soft] arxiv.org/abs/1304.0569AbstractWe present laboratory experiments of a vertically vibrated granular medium consisting of 1 mm diameter glass beads with embedded 8 mm diameter intruder glass beads. The experiments were performed in the laboratory as well as in a parabolic flight under reduced-gravity conditions (on Martian and Lunar gravity levels). We measured the mean rise velocity of the large glass beads and present its dependence on the fill height of the sample containers, the excitation acceleration, and the ambient gravity level. We find that the rise velocity scales in the same manner for all three gravity regimes and roughly linearly with gravity.Via TechnologyReview This document is subject to copyright.
