Magnetic fields are everywhere- you just can’t see them*.
Here we introduce some basic and inexpensive visual tools, as varied as iron filings and Arduino, pre-school toys and OpenGL, for getting to know your local fields. It’s not exhaustive, but might provide you with some useful starting points for your own exploration.
(*Unless you count the magnetic fieldAinside those photons that you use to see things.)
David Carlson of the David Report has released a new trend look at the state of a full design world. Design contamination has taken over an expertise that is barely 100 years old; new products are simply the variations of old themes- (conceptual design, new articulations of the same, design signatures and design as art).
However if we are able to get back to using aging products and making design matter in a lifecycle, there is a cleaner horizon.
Designer Naoto Fukasawa: "I understand that myArole is about enhancing our living…. I've become moreAattached to the current life, and have started considering the betterment of our lives in a reality where we allAbelong, rather than predicting what could happen".
We need new storytellers:
Fred Alan Wolf - The Dreaming Universe (1994):A"Aboriginals believe in two forms of time: two parallelAstreams of activity. One is the daily objective activity,Athe other is an infinite spiritual cycle, called dreamtime,Amore real than reality itself…".
Carlson poses a great question, how do we A"change old habits and not to perpetuate the sales argument that the main role of designAis added value."

HONG KONG- A bell rang out in the auction world late last month when Christie’s formally announced that world-renowned auctioneer Francois Curiel, a 40-year Christie’s veteran and leading jewelry expert, would be appointed president of the company’s Asia operation and director of its international jewelry department. Charming and driven, Curiel seems the perfect candidate to lead Christie’s expansion in the region given his success developing the auction house in New York (where he launched jewelry sales in 1977) and then Paris (where, as chairman of Christie’s France, he initiated a vast program of auctions in 2001). His arrival in Hong Kong is a clear indication of just how valuable Asia and particularly Mainland China has now become to the world’s leading auction houses. During his first week on the job, I sat down with Curiel in his Hong Kong office to talk about his formidable history with Christie’s, his plans for their future in Asia, and the Vivid Pink, the record-smashing diamond he sold at Christie’s in Hong Kong last fall.
In a hope to boost enlisted troops morale, the Air Force has reinstated the Good Conduct Medal. The Air Force is building upon their legacy of being a disciplined, high-tech, comfortable and highly volunteered arm of service, and adding to their already well liked "chest candy" of awards.
The Marines who give out the fewest medals and see the greatest amount of combat, have trouble seeing the benefit of adding another medal to their cache of fatigue add-ons.
Does the honor do more than just separate the well-behaved from the trouble makers or does it motivate personel to be like those stationed beside them?
You know how sometimes you just don’t know how to say it? Ninjas looking for chic ways to tell that special somebody "I love you" needn’t look any further. Nothing makes the statement (or pops the question) like a $16 acrylic promise ring from by:AMT (Alissia Melka-Teichroew’s design company). The rings come in different colors, and by all accounts are pretty fly. MNP learned about these things via A Glimpse of Glamour, a blog run by a friend of ours whom, by all accounts, is a definite authority on ill rings. Here’s an excerpt from the kid herself:
my sister lissy wears very little jewelry, but one accessory
that she can always be counted on wearing is her promise ring.
unlike traditional pre.engagement rings, lissy’s ring(s)
come from gum ball machines, souvenir shops and arcades.
they never cost more than a few dollars at most,
and often become mis.shapen or rusty over time.
but the sentiment behind each new ring remains the same.
lissy says that she does not want her boyfriend spending any
money on jewelry for her unless it’s her future diamond,
and i think that is a very lovely justification!
Well ain’t that just too damned cute? They also have a goofy little ring-a-day set (pictured below). Go check out the AGoG blog to get your acrylic bling on.
