Get Started with Video Captioning : A Beginner's Guide to Making Video Accessible: A Beginner's Guide to Making Video Accessible

By: Patrick Joseph Besong

Have a video that you need to make accessible, but don't have a clue how to start? This book will get you up and running in no time. It will show you how in layman's language how to go about the task of closed captioning your videos, what the different formats are, what software to use, and will also go over the basic style guidelines in creating captioned videos....

Captioning video not only makes video accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing, but there are other compelling reasons for it as well. These are also good talking points to convince others of the need to caption video. • Captioned videos have better user retention of the video content. • The video’s transcripts are searchable, so you will get better Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which may give you a leg up on your competition. • Captioned video also opens your market reach to a whole new segment of paying customers - the deaf! • It’s the law. Many videos that are provided to the public must be captioned either due to federal communication law, or merely a company’s policy regarding accessibility. • Language learning relies heavily on captioned video. • If the viewer is in a noisy area and does not have access to headphones, the captions can be read while watching the video. • Similarly, if the viewer does not have headphones and cannot turn up the volume due to the need to keep noise to a minimum (like in a library or nursery), the captions are there to provide what is being spoken....

The Warp Drive : Hyper-fast Travel Within General Relativity

By: Miguel Alcubierre

It is shown how, within the framework of general relativity and without the introduction of wormholes, it is possible to modify a spacetime in a way that allows a spaceship to travel with an arbitrarily large speed. By a purely local expansion of spacetime behind the spaceship and an opposite contraction in front of it, motion faster than the speed of light as seen by observers outside the disturbed region is possible. The resulting distortion is reminiscent of the "warp drive" of science fiction. However, just as it happens with wormholes, exotic matter will be needed in order to generate a distortion of spacetime like the one discussed here....

Comment créer et Optimiser son profil Google+ : Pour plus de visibilité, Volume 1: Pour plus de visibilité

By: Noel NGUESSAN; Noel NGUESSAN, Editor

Le lancement du concept de Google AuthorShip apporte encore plus d’intérêt au profil Google+. Et ce, dans la mesure où il permet à Google de mettre plus en valeur et de favoriser le profil Google+ de chaque auteur identifié sur ses pages de résultats. C’est d’ailleurs ce qu’a récemment confirmé Eric Schmidt, Président du Conseil d’Administration de Google. Par conséquent, bien optimiser son profil permet de tirer avantage de cette faveur que Google compte accorder aux auteurs ayant créé un profil Google+ et l’ayant lié à tous leurs contenus. Découvrez donc dans cet eBook gratuit comment vous y prendre pour réussir l’optimisation de votre profil Google+ qui va de plus en plus influencer votre classement sur le moteur Google....

Google+ est le réseau social de Google lancé en juin 2011 et qui compterait plus de 550 millions d'utilisateurs dont 345 millions d'actifs au dernier pointage. On pourrait penser qu'avec Google+, Google essaie de concurrencer Facebook sur son propre terrain en espérant, bien sûr, prendre sa place de leader dans ce créneau. Mais, en fait, ce n'est pas vraiment la place de leader qui intéresse réellement Google. Même si cela ne lui déplairait pas d'occuper cette place. La raison principale pour laquelle Google a lancé Google+ réside surtout dans la récupération des données personnelles des internautes. Car, avoir plus de données de ses utilisateurs, c'est bien entendu pouvoir fournir des résultats personnalisés et surtout pouvoir vendre de la publicité très ciblée à chacun d'eux. Google envisage donc, avec Google+, de changer le monde de l'internet en profondeur. Et pour ce faire, il lui faut plus de données personnelles, une meilleure identification des individus et plus d'intégration de tous ses services. Google+ n'est pas encore un produit fini comme l'ont été Buzz ou Orkut. Mais, il bel et bien un projet de Goo...

Wright Flyer Paper : How Small Is Too Small?; Technology into 2035, Vol. 46

By: Major Paul E. Kladitis, USAF

The Department of Defense (DOD) anticipates the realization of biomimetic bird and two-inch, insect-sized systems within the 2015–47 period. Although robot systems of one millimeter or smaller are not explicitly specified in current DOD and Air Force technology road maps, the technological aims towards this size can be clearly inferred from official documents. This research assesses the likelihood of, and barriers to, the realization of true microrobots and nanorobots (defined as submillimeter-sized robots of micro-meter and nanometer proportions, respectively) that can perform in military applications by 2035. This research finds that the realization of true microrobots for military applications by 2035 is unlikely, except for a single case of microrobots....

Build-to-shelve Prototyping : Undercutting Doctrinal Development

By: Lieutenant Colonel Donald “Bud” Vazquez, USAF

I submit there are two ways we can use limited numbers of prototype systems to ensure we learn relevant tactical lessons before we have to fight:(1) capitalizing on interactive computing technologies to better develop requirements and tactics throughout the system life cycle and (2) changing our concept of prototypes from the buying of one or two “experimental”items to procuring entire “prototypical” units....

Preventing Catastrophe : US Policy Options for Management of Nuclear Weapons in South Asia

By: Lieutenant Colonel Martin J. Wojtysiak,USAF

In Preventing Catastrophe: US Policy Options for Management of Nuclear Weapons in South Asia, Lt Col Martin J. “Marty” Wojtysiak, USAF, proposes a response to the dangerous proliferation of nuclear weapons in India and Pakistan. This paper highlights the threat in “The Nuclear Catastrophe of 2005,” a gripping projection of the worstcase scenario on the current realities of the Indian subcontinent. Written a year after the “catastrophe,” it vividly describes the events leading up to the disaster as well as the grim aftermath of a South Asian nuclear war. The remainder of the paper looks at US regional objectives and suggests how they might be achieved. The author proposes a regional proliferation regime that realistically addresses the threat and moves the United States to a pragmatic approach to manage and limit the ongoing proliferation in South Asia....

China in Space : Civilian and Military Developments

By: Colonel David J. Thompson, USAF; Lieutenant Colonel William R. Morris, USAF

Col Thompson, in his concentrated focus on China’s military space applications, examines PRC ground, space, counterspace, and space policy aspects. His principal findings: China has plans to construct a new launch site in the deep south; PRC telemetry, tracking and com-mand capacities are improving; China has the ability to conduct limited intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions from space; the PRC is pursuing a counterspace capability most likely using satellite jammers and anti-satellites (possibly parasitic or nano-satellites). Col Thompson concludes that while China’s space program does not now constitute a global threat, the PRC is pursuing space capabilities that will increase its regional influence, and deny an adversary certain uses of space....

China as Peer Competitor? : Trends in Nuclear Weapons, Space, and Information Warfare

By: Lieutenant Colonel Kathryn L. Gauthier, USAF

In China as Peer Competitor? Trends in Nuclear Weapons, Space, and Information Warfare Lt Col Kathryn L. Gauthier analyzes the potential for China to emerge as a peer competitor of the United States in the coming decades. First, she examines two traditional pillars of national strength— China’s status as a nuclear weapons state and as a space power. Second, she then explores China’s growing focus on information warfare (IW) as a means to wage asymmetric warfare against a technologically advanced adversary. Third, the author carefully examines the status of the three programs, highlights areas of concern and potential conflict with the United States, and analyzes the implications of these issues for the United States....
