台灣台北2016年8月19日電 /美通社/ -- 由台灣中央研究院主辦的國際學術組織太平洋鄰里協會 (PNC),本週在洛杉磯蓋蒂中心召開2016年會,會議主題為數據能建構實境嗎  會中幼兒教育平板廠商 Kizi Lab 提出大數據研究報告,探討幼兒學習效率與學科之間的關聯性及其應用。

鑑於多數家長並非教育專家,也無法有效地從浩瀚的網路世界,幫小孩找齊優質的數位教材和教育遊戲,供小孩自主學習。 從2012年起,台北數位集團旗下的公司 -- Kizi Lab 開始規劃幼兒課綱,並依課綱設計一系列的教育遊戲和數位內容,並建立跨 App 的大數據收集平台,記錄小孩學習過程的一舉一動,再進行數據分析,了解小孩的學習行為。目前 Kizi Lab 公司已經透過其推出的 Kizi Pad 幼兒教育平板,收集到近百萬小時幼兒學習過程的數據,家長可得知自己的小孩把時間花在學習哪些類型的知識、學習時間的比例學習成效如何等

透過此次研討會,Kizi Lab 的幼教顧問湯梓辰博士,分享了許多大數據分析的成果。例如:英文與中文等科目,其學習效率與年齡沒有太大的關係,因此,學習是愈早愈好且多多益善。有些科目,如:數學和科學,則需循序漸進。但研究發現,提前學習數學等科目對小孩而言並沒有任何困難,的確可以讓小孩該方面的能力超越同齡小孩。整體而言,小孩學什麼內容和年齡沒有太大關係,只要順序對了小孩就可以學會超齡的東西。這與「等小孩長大了再學就好」的傳統觀點,有些出入,小孩的確可以贏在起跑線上。Kizipad 利用多元的數據分析,了解使用者的行為與學習的相關性,得到與會各國的數據學者與教育專家的關注及肯定。

Heat, or cold, for your low back hot and cold ankle wrap pain? Is there a way of knowing when cold will work better for healing the cause of back pain, versus hot treatment? Is hot treatment better than cold for low back pain, or vice versa? First of all, the vast majority of low back pain will go away on its own, says Kaixuan Liu, MD, PhD, nationally distinguished leader in endoscopic spine surgery; chief surgeon at Atlantic Spinal Care in Edison, N.J.

 

One's body gets clean and you may obtain restored power. Lean meats, knee heating support just about the most crucial organs, which performs very important role throughout digestion, additionally receives flushed. In addition, it cleans the intestines. When you have great deal of water jointly, all drinking water will not will get absorbed and also goes in the intestines exactly where it creates force as well as pushes your feces. Practicing water therapy for couple of weeks would help eliminate lots of irregularity troubles.

 

Fact 3: far infrared heat wraps Heat helps. If you're experiencing neck pain at night, try placing a soft and flexible heating pad on the affected area. This should provide you with quick relief from neck pain. If you don't have a heating pad, you can improvise by filling sock with rice or barley and then warming it in the oven. Heat therapy works by loosening the taut muscles in your neck, which are probably causing the pain.

 

Heating Pads are flexible that can go anywhere in your body. This means you get effective treatment exactly where you need it, as it's needed. Applying heat therapy for 2030 minutes relating to the spine can soothe pain brought on by muscle spasms and fatigue. The usual Heat Wrap applied by using a gentle massage in the lumbar region provides instant lower back pain relief. Determined by several different options. Moist Pads are an absorbent sponge for moist heat and has an convenient on/off switch. Some pads also provide three different heat settings.

 

Ice or heat for low back pain? For acute inflammation, go with ice, says Dr. Liu. He explains, "The cold shrinks the small blood vessels in the area, which keeps blood and other fluids from flooding to the injury site, thus decreasing swelling. It also slows nerve impulses in the area, which interrupts the transmission of pain messages, and numbs the area much like a local anesthetic." Also, cold aids in reducing tissue damage that acute inflammation can cause.

 

If you have a torn muscle you can also see your doctor who might be able to help you by prescribing you muscle relaxant medications. The muscle relaxant medications will not generally make the inflammation go away, but it will help relax the muscle that is torn to help it heal faster. Muscle relaxation medications are generally good in helping alleviate some of the pain because it will encourage blood flow to the muscles which increases the oxygen in the blood stream and will help with the overall stiffness and soreness of the affected torn muscle. You do need a prescription to get muscle relaxant medications, but it really does help you if you are in pain or you need something in order to help you sleep or move around due to the soreness of the torn muscle. As with a lot of prescriptions, you should always use caution when driving or operating machinery due to the muscle relaxants causing dizziness and drowsiness.

 

Torn muscles can also be helped by using a ice and heat therapy. Ice and heat are often encouraged after the initial tear and for a few days after the torn muscle occurred. When you use ice therapy, the recommended time is using the ice at 20 minute intervals several different times throughout the day. The ice therapy can be done as many times a day as you would like or have, as long as you remember 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. The ice can help increase blood flow which will help aide in the healing process and can also reduce swelling and inflammation to the affected torn muscle. Heat therapy can always be used in helping increase blood flow and help reduce damaged cells. Ice and heat is a technique that has been around for many years and can help reduce the inflammation caused by infection and other medical conditions such as a torn muscle.


HDMI and Gaming Consoles: Good Match or Not Worth It?

image from www.whichbetter.net

In the world of gaming there are 2 different consoles that offer the use of HDMI. Let’s take a look at how to use an HDMI cable on these consoles, and whether it’s worth the price or change-over hassle.

Playstation 3
The Playstation 3 is the only gaming console on the market that can support the full use of 1080p HD. This is because they have a built in blu-ray player which allows you to watch 1080p video. So is there a reason to use HDMI cables over component cables? The truth is that HDMI cables are going to provide a slightly better image than a component cable. This is based on the fact that the PS3 generates all its images in a digital format. A component cable has to convert the analog signal to a digital signal and loses some of the quality in the process. If you do choose to go with an HDMI cable for your PS3 we would suggest a high speed cable based on the fact that standard cables do not support 1080p HD.

Xbox 360
The Xbox 360 follows the same rules, when it comes to analog conversion, as the Playstation 3. If you are looking for that little extra boost in image quality, the HDMI cable is going to win out over the typical component connections. However, the Xbox 360 can only support up to 720p HD, so the quakity loss in conversion is not as big a factor as it is with the PS3. If you do choose to go with an HDMI cable we would suggest you use a standard speed cable over a high performance one, based on the fact that Xbox 360 can only support 720p HD.

When you compare apples to apples, there is a slight advantage in using an HDMI cable over component cables and that is due to the overall conversion issue. The main problem with HDMI cables is that in the past there have been some minor issues with them being used on gaming systems. PS3 and Xbox 360 both had to bring out additional downloads and firmware updates to fix video and audio HDMI issues. This is a concern because there is always the chance of the same thing happening with future gaming consoles. Odds are, though, that there won’t be future issues like we have seen with PS3 and Xbox, but only time will tell. 


Can I use a USB Cable Modem For My Game Console?

Question:

Can I use a USB Cable Modem for my game console?

Answer:

Yes. If you don't have an Ethernet hub or router, then you may consider using a USB cable modem. This cable modem converts the broadband signal into data understandable to your game console or other wired device and vice-versa. For game console connection, if you have a cable modem that connects directly to your machine via USB, then you will need a second network card to connect to the game console. Note that if you have a USB Ethernet adapter for use with your Cable Uplink you can use any of the other configurations since a USB Ethernet adapter is basically just a type of network card. An additional card is ONLY needed if your Cable Modem connects directly to your machine via USB (no network cable).

How to Find the Most Suitable Desk Lamp for Your Reading

Desk lamp

       There are various kinds of desk lamps which are manufactured in many different ways. Choose one that fits the type of task you will perform at your work space is very important. Before you curl up in bed with a good book or sharpen your pencil to do the crossword puzzle in the Sunday newspaper, make sure you have enough light so that your eyes don't strain. Different lamps are optimal for reading, office work, hobbies and other tasks that require good light to cut down on eyestrain. The best position for a reading lamp is above and slightly behind your head.

       Most desk lamps provide a task light that points downward onto your work surface. A desk lamp with gooseneck has multiple joints and can be bent in any direction. Some types can be attached to an adjacent wall or clamped to any available surface. Use this kind of lamp for fine work that requires a task light that can be brought as close as necessary to avoid eye strain.

       Besides the selection of lamps, the light source and type is also very crucial. First of all, natural light can be provided by the sun. You may think its light is already sufficient for reading; however, it’s better for you to turn on anther light to have enough illumination. Secondly, mood light is suitable for activities such as TV watching, eating and conversation. It is usually placed around the room on end table. One thing should be noticed is that this kind of light is not good for reading, for its lighting direction can’t be adjusted. Finally, task light provides illumination for specific tasks like reading. On the contrary to table lamps, task lights can be adjusted to shine directly on your reading material. Task lights often use gooseneck as fixtures because of its flexibility.
