That’s language-learning success.
That’s Rosetta Stone.

No translation or memorization required.

The most effective way to learn a new language is to be surrounded by it. When you were an infant, your parents taught you this way, by intuitively associating words with images. That’s the ultimate language lab, but most language-learning programs completely ignore this.

Think about all of the ways you’ve tried to learn a language: classes at school, tapes and cassettes, even software that uses your native language as a base for your next one. What do they all have in common? Translation and memorization.

Instead of taking a “direct flight” from your brain to your new language, translation and memorization connects you to your old language. You always have to “fly” from your brain, to your native tongue … and then translate what you’ve memorized to communicate.

That might work for a few words, but what happens when you get to a sentence or phrase? When you have to change tenses? You’re going to make a lot of “connecting flights.” That’s why those other methods are so frustrating … and why they fail.

Enter Dynamic Immersion.
This method encourages you to think like a baby. You’ll pair words with vivid, real-life images and make connections between things you know and the new language. Soon, you’ll be thinking in a new language, stringing words together into phrases that you create.

Innovative technology.
Rosetta Stone places this Dynamic Immersion method at the core of a suite of software that works with you to develop your skills. The simple, intuitive interface helps to keep you engaged in the solution, while advanced speech recognition technology makes certain that you’re speaking correctly and accurately. Best of all, Rosetta Stone never leaves you behind. You’ll only move forward when you’re ready, when you’ve become comfortable and confident.

Communicate and connect with the world: Level 1, 2 & 3 Set.
Rosetta Stone Level 1, 2 & 3 Set will take you on a journey from the basics to a whole new level of sophistication.

The Hand: How Its Use Shapes the Brain, Language, and Human Culture

The Hand: How Its Use Shapes the Brain, Language, and Human Culture

“The human hand is so beautifully formed, its actions are so powerful, so free and yet so delicate that there is no thought of its complexity as an instrument; we use it as we draw our breath, unconsciously.” With these words written in 1833, Sir Charles Bell expressed the central theme of some of the most far-reaching and exciting research being done in science today. For humans, the lifelong apprenticeship with the hand begins at birth. We are guided by our hands, and we are indelibly shaped by the knowledge that comes to us through our use of them.

The Hand delineates the ways in which our hands have shaped our development–cognitive, emotional, linguistic, and psychological–in light of the most recent research being done in anthropology, neuroscience, linguistics, and psychology. How did structural changes in the hand prepare human ancestors for increased use of tools and for our own remarkable ability to design and manufacture them? Is human language rooted in speech, or are its deepest roots to be found in the gestures that made communal hunting and manufacture possible? Is early childhood experience in reaching and grasping the secret of the human brain’s unique capacity to redefine intelligence with each new generation in every culture and society?

Frank Wilson’s inquiry incorporates the experiences and insights of jugglers, surgeons, musicians, puppeteers, and car mechanics. His fascinating book illuminates how our hands influence learning and how we, in turn, use our hands to leave our personal stamp on the world.The hand is, among other things, a complex symbol, representing both the creative and the prosaic. This blending of the spiritual and the mundane is what makes the hand unique, as it in turn makes us unique among animals. Neurologist Frank R. Wilson has taken on a heroic task: to explain the hand on both of these levels and to show us how we use these marvelous instruments to find and create meaning in our lives.

Anthropology, neuroscience, music, and puppetry all figure prominently in The Hand, which effortlessly guides the reader through its million-year biography. Brains and thumbs growing and changing to accommodate each other, discovering tools and language together, kicked us out of the monkey house for good. While there is still controversy over whether we are the brainiest animals on the planet, it is abundantly clear that we are the handiest.

This manipulative ability is our greatest strength and our most terrible flaw. Without hands we would have no Louvre but also no nerve gas. But, Wilson says, our situation is more complex. Our access to far greater means to achieve our ends gives us a greater hunger for meaning. We long to use our hands to satisfy our needs–whether spiritual or down-to-earth. This creation of meaning from nothing may be our greatest achievement. In the end, The Hand is brightly optimistic, showing that our reach truly does exceed our grasp. –Rob Lightner

This is a big fake – Questa è una foto fasulla

This is a big fake – Questa è una foto fasulla
how to use usenet
Image by funadium

Following a discussion on the Usenet group it.arti.fotografia.digitale about the use of fake stars in photos, I made this image.
This is how I make it:
– I took a not particularly interesting photo of a sunrise in Cervo (Imperia, Liguria – Italy) I shot last summer – the photo is made looking East
– from kstars, the free astronomy program available by default in Linux, I took a 2560 × 960 screenshot, looking North, showing just stars with a magniture 3 or less (the lesser the bigger: magnitude is inverse)
– with the Gimp filter "Sample Colorizing" (see this tutorial) I give stars a natural color, because Kstars has its own "symbolic" colors to indicate the stars temperature
– the stars can’t be static, so I duplicate the stars layer and added to it a motion blur filter, 3 pixels long, and some light gaussian blur
– over the panorama I placed the two stars layers in screen mode, resized to have the same width of the photo

The result is terrific, but it’s a fake: the Northern Star became a Eastern Star
BTW, it took me more time to write this text than to make the fake photo.
Now I’m curious to see how many people will post a praising comment without to read this description 🙂


Seguendo una discussione sul gruppo Usenet it.arti.fotografia.digitale a proposito dell’uso di stelle fasulle nelle foto, ho realizzato quest’immagine.
Ecco come ho fatto:
– ho preso una foto non particolarmente interessante scattata all’alba a Cervo (IM) la scorsa estate – la foto è fatta guardando a est.
– da kstars il programma gratis di astronomia disponibile di serie su Linux, ho preso una schermata da 2560 × 960 pixel, guardando a nord, visualizzando solo stelle con magnitudine 3 o inferiore (la magnitudine è inversa: stelle con magnitudine bassa sono più luminose)
– con il fitro Gimp "Colorazione a campione" (vedere questo tutorial) ho dato alle stelle un colore più naturale, perché Kstars ha i suoi colori "simbolici" per indicare la temperatura delle stelle
– le stelle non possono essere statiche, così ho duplicato il livello delle stelle ed aggiunto un po’ di sfocatura movimento, lunga 3 pixel, e un po’ di sfocatura gaussiana
– sopra il panorama ho piazzato i due livelli di stelle, in modo scherma, ridimensionati alle stesse dimensioni della foto

Il risultato è sorprendente, ma è fasullo: la Stella Polare è diventata la Stella Popolare
A proposito, mi è occorso più tempo per scrivere questo testo che per fare la foto tarocca.
Ora sono curioso di vedere quanta gente posterà un commento elogiativo senza leggere questa descrizione 🙂
