Students often make use of free materials and resources on the Internet for school projects and personal online websites. Often, they may mix different online materials to derive new content and share the derived works with friends. This guide shares with students what they need to know about Creative Commons licenses when using free online resources created by others and when sharing works created by the students.
Ever want to edit some photos or images in a photoshop-esque manner but without Photoshop itself ? Here's my ongoing list of online photo/image editing tools you can explore. My primary criteria for including a site in this list is that it must have a free version of its tools.
My Lars' Rating (Score:1 to 5) method:
These are all the (known) planets in our solar system. The first planet nearest to the Sun is Mercury at 70 million kilometers from the Sun - light takes about 3.8s to travel from the Sun to reach Mercury.
The second nearest planet is Venus at 108 million kilometers away. Earth is the "third rock" from the Sun at 150 million kilometers and light takes 8.3s to reach us from the Sun.
The furthest planet is the eight planet from the Sun is Neptune at 45 billion kilometers away; sunlight takes about 40 minutes to reach Neptune from the Sun. This list currently exclude dwarf planets, such as Pluto, in our solar system.
The top 50 countries by smartphone users have a combined total of 2.7 billion smartphone users or 42.33% of their combined population.
Asia's top 3 countries by smartphone users are :
This data is derived from Newzoo's 2018 study of the top 50 countries/markets by smartphone users and penetration (refer to URL below). According to Newzoo, a smartphone user is defined as anyone using a smartphone at least once a month. These numbers come from Newzoo's annual Global Mobile Market Report and are derived based on considerations of a country's economic progression, demography, online population and inequality.
Hi mates, this is the continuation of my ratings on online stock media sites - focusing on vectors here.
In this Lars' Rating for stock vectors sites, I use a simple methodology that rates sites higher if they provide a "free" collection to user and if they use clear, public copyright licenses like Creative Commons for the use of the "free" collection.
Lars' Rating Method for Stock Vector Sites:
Buzz me if you want to let me know of any stock vector sites that i missed !
Ongoing stuff - Here's my RAW list of compilation of online coding resources for kids. In no particular order at the moment. I will find time to properly review them. IF i do review, I will arrange these sites by suitabel age groups, such as 5 - 8 or 9 - 12. Meanwhile, see if they are helpful for you.
As part of my daily tasks, I am tracking major forums for emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine/Deep Learning, Blockchain, Smart Cities, Wearables, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Robotics, Cybersecurity and others.
Here's my compilation of related events, exhibitions and conferences globally in these categories for 2019, ranked by visitorship. These are the major global events for emerging technologies. Combined, the top 10 events receive more than 1 million visitors.
With the exception of Hannover Messe and Mobile World Congress as European events. the remaining eight tech shows are all located in Asia. Note: The visitorship data is obtained from 2018/2017 data sources (refer to references below).
Here are several graphical UIs for MongoDB. I was searching for and experimenting with several MongoDB GUIs. My personal preference goes to Studio 3T for its clear, clean and intuitive interface.
In using Studio 3T, it is immediately clear how to go from beginning to finally listing all the collections in your database. However, my only problem with Studio 3T is that there is supposed to be a free personal-use license but the software does not make it clear how the personal-use license can be activated, so it keeps reminding you that you are still using a trial version that needs to be purchased.
The term "Internet of Things" was coined by Kevin Ashton in 1999, but it was not until the year 2008 that IoT began to emerge as a force of growth and adoption, coupled with the explosive growth of mobile devices and rapidly decreasing costs of sensors and networks. It was then that major tech conferences and exhibitions began incorporating IoT elements into their show content.
Fast forward to 2018, the world is now spoilt for choice in terms of IoT conferences and exhibitions. Today, there are evidently a lot of IoT events happening every week around the world. In this list, I have sought to cover the better publicized and established IoT conferences and exhibitions.
For the purpose of this list, I consider shows that have IoT as their primary agenda and exclude other shows, however major, that cover IoT but not as a primary theme. From this calendar, we can observe that IoT has gained mainstream awareness and acceptance worldwide, with major shows now scheduled in every region and continent throughout the year of 2019.
The planet with the most satellite moons is Saturn with 62 moons! Titan, Saturn's largest moon, and the second-largest in the Solar System, is larger than the planet Mercury, although less massive, and is the only moon in the Solar System to have a substantial atmosphere.
Uranus has 27 moons, while Neptune has 14 moons. We should also note that Venus and Mercury has no moons in their orbit. Of course, as we all know, Earth has but one moon. This list currently exclude dwarf planets, such as Pluto, in our solar system.
