New Horizons - Summiting the Solar System: Part 1

Summiting the Solar System is a story of exploration at its most ambitious and extreme.

On January 1, 2019, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flies by a small Kuiper Belt Object known scientifically as 2014 MU69, but nicknamed Ultima Thule. Ultima is four billion miles from Earth, and will be the most ancient and most distant world ever explored close up. It is expected to offer discoveries about the origin and evolution of our solar system. Chosen by the team and the public, the nickname honors the mythical land beyond the edges of the known world.

But Summiting is much more than the story of a sophisticated, plutonium-fueled robotic spacecraft exploring far from the Sun. The New Horizons mission is powered as much by the passions of a small team of humans—men and women, scientists and engineers—for whom pushing the frontiers of the known, climbing the very peaks of the possible, has been the dream of many decades.

Most prevalent during the Great Depression, hobos were nomads who roamed the United States taking work wherever they could. In their extensive travels, hobos learned to leave notes for each other, giving information about places to camp, where to find a meal, or dangers that lay ahead. This unique Hobo Code was known to the brotherhood of freight train riders and used by all to keep the community of traveling workers safe, fed and in work.

Life as a hobo was difficult and dangerous. These vagabonds developed their own secret pictographic language to help other hobos to food, water and work or to direct them away from dangerous situations. The Hobo Code is a fascinating system of symbols understood among the hobo community. Because hobos weren't typically welcomed (and were often illiterate), messages left for others in the community had to be easy for hobos to read but look like little more than random markings to everyone else to maintain an element of secrecy. Scrawled in places where hobos were likely to convene, the purpose of the code was not only to help other hobos find what they needed, but to keep the entire lifestyle possible for everyone.

Each movement of this piece is based on one of these symbols and, just like those resourceful hobos, makes use of very limited materials. All activity is centered on a single bass drum. Other items utilized include steel plates, rubber balls, and a paper bag containing 3 lbs of loose buckshot.

Steven Snowden creates music for a diverse array of settings including theater, dance, film, multimedia installations, and the concert stage. He has focused much of his recent work on interdisciplinary collaboration and remains active as a performer in both acoustic and electronic mediums. Raised in rural Southwest Missouri, Snowden began composition studies in 2002, received his Masters degree in composition at the University of Colorado and DMA at the University of Texas at Austin. He is a co-founder/director of the Fast Forward Austin new music organization and his works have been performed by many outstanding ensembles at numerous festivals and concert series across five continents.

He has recently received awards and fellowships from the Aspen Music Festival, the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, the Austin Critics' Table, Copland House, ISCM World Music Days, Future Places Portugal, MACRO, IC 2013, The Mizzou New Music International Composers Festival and the ASCAP Morton Gould Awards among others. He was also the recipient of a 2012-2013 Fulbright Grant to Portugal in music composition/technology where he researched the augmentation of interactive motion tracking systems for use in large-scale interdisciplinary collaborations. He's currently a visiting professor and composer in residence at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

Formed in 2009, line upon line percussion is committed to seeking new ways for percussion instruments to advance contemporary music. To date, the ensemble has commissioned and premiered 8 new works for percussion with 13 additional works currently in the collaborative process. In 2011, the Austin-based trio released a disc of commissioned, homegrown music and premiered their award winning project, seeing times are not hidden, a site-specific work for custom chimes. April 2013 brought the North American premiere of Hugues Dufourt's massive, evening-length masterpiece, Erewhon.

After nominations in 2011 and 2012, the trio was named Best Ensemble by the Austin Critics' Table in 2013. The Austinist called line upon line the premier new music percussion ensemble in Texas and the South.

line upon line maintains educational and outreach roles with the Austin Chamber Music Center and has performed and taught at numerous academic institutions around the United States. November 2012 marked their first appearance at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention. The group has previously performed at the Fusebox Festival, SXSW, Fast Forward Austin, the Victoria Bach Festival and the International Festival-Institute at Round Top.

Sex for Grades: undercover inside Nigerian and Ghanaian universities - BBC Africa Eye documentary

Universities in Nigeria and Ghana have been plagued by stories of sexual harassment by lecturers and professors for decades. Allegations include a wide array of abuses, from blackmailing students for sex in exchange for marks and admission to lewd comments and grooming.

After gathering dozens of testimonies, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana to capture footage of the sexual harassment.

Reporter Kiki Mordi, who knows first-hand how devastating sexual harassment can be, reveals what happens behind the closed doors of some of West Africa’s most prestigious universities.

Further information and support for anyone affected by sexual assault can be found through the BBC Action Line:

Smart Skirting Board ®

Smart Skirting Board ® - Created and developed by: V.M.S. Fernandes, Lisbon Portugal, S. Pedro Residence. Teresa Tupholme, M.Psych., Lisbon Portugal, Uroclínica. J.P. Marujo, PhD, Lisbon Portugal, Unitranspessoal.

Purpose To create a wooden skirting board that ensures a more active surveillance of the elderly, as well as, the prevention of wheelchair accidents. Essentially this is an innovative tool that stimulates the visual, auditory and tactile senses of dementia patients providing cognitive stimulation that will delay the progression of dementia. By means of a light device in the Snoezelen system which is built into the skirting board, brain stimulation is achieved, improving the elderly person's attention span, memory, mood, verbal skills and concentration and helping them to relax, ultimately providing the elderly person with a means to cope with challenges of daily life (Staal, 2004). The skirting boards position and measurements have been carefully designed to prevent accidents, to allow for the installation of the technology and for easier access of the user. Method This skirting board has a width of 15cm and a height of 20-30 cm; and has been placed above the ankle line (8-12cm above ground level). These specific measurements facilitate the user's movement without the wheelchair's hand rims touching the wall, thus preventing damage to the walls and simultaneously avoiding possible injury to the user's hands. In addition to protecting the wheelchair user, these specific skirting board measurements have been designed to accommodate all the installed technology; the Snoezelen System, CD Player, Video Camera, Microphone and Motion Detectors, (Fig. 1). A non-scientific assessment of the skirting board has been carried out with formal health caretakers who have reported an improvement in the elderly person's responses to daily life challenges and an enhanced level of their well-being and will to live. Results & Discussion Advantages of this innovative skirting board include; prevention of hand injuries, protection of the walls from wheelchair damage; direct and permanent contact with the user and easy application without damage to the walls. The system has been equipped with a voice device that allows for a conversation to take place in real time, as well as, a video camera that allows for motion detection inside the room and also protects the individual's privacy considering it is 15 cm above ground level. It allows the caretaker to monitor the elderly. Moreover, the evening presence light on the skirting board ensures that when the elderly person wakes up at night he/she does not feel disorientated. The skirting board also has an in-built music system for the elderly person to hear the radio and a CD player which enables him to listen to relaxation CDS with voice instruction and music designed to promote reminiscence, intended to stimulate memories and is equipped with one or more energy points which may be used for charging electronic equipment, such as mobile phones. The skirting board is equipped with a Snoezelen system, placed at the top, which reflects various colors on the walls, providing moments of pleasure and relaxation to the elderly. Relaxing music has been added in digital form. This skirting board has been created with two types of sensors, one that monitors movement in the room and another that provides warning of the entry/exit of the individual from the room. When triggered, the latter activates a red light in the entry/exit point of the room, as well as a call bell. This equipment may be fully or partially controlled by the elderly person, depending on his/her psychomotor status and may be placed in any type of housing for the elderly or in private homes.
