Aggression on the streets

Would you interfere if you see aggression on the street?

More often we see people with a public task have to deal with intimidation, aggression and violence. Because of this the police, conductors, ambulance staff and others can’t carry their work out. Can these people in threatening situations count on YOU? How more people intervene at aggression, the safer the streets will be.

How can you help with aggression on the street?

  • Ask others for help and addresses together the perpetrator
  • Call 112
  • Stay with the victim
  • Make pictures and be a witness in this case.

East Meets West

We all love with infographics — what an elegant way to depict complex concepts with brilliant simplicity. We also have a longtime love affair with social psychology, some of which deals with the fascinating cultural differences between Eastern and Western mentality — from the individualistic tendencies of the West versus the pluralism of Asian societies, to how differently Westerners and Easterners read the emotions of others. Designer Yang Liu’s ingenious East Meets West infographic series, tackling everything from differences in self-perception to evolution of transportation.

She was born in China but living in Germany since she was 14, Liu has a unique grip of this cultural duality — and she channels it with great wit and eloquent minimalism in graphics that say so much by showing so little.

Lifestyle: Independent vs. dependent

Chinese superstitions – 迷信

A few a days ago I read an article in the Chinese news paper. The story was about “Why are Chinese so superstitious?“. Reading this article make me thing about the people (family and friends) around me. From those group the Chinese people are the most superstitious and me? I am a person who is sober from nature and not superstitious at all.

For many Chinese, superstition is just a question of hedging your bets just in case there’s something to it – rather like the traditional Chinese habit of subscribing to as many religions as possible.

For example: Everyone should refrain from using foul language and bad or unlucky words. Negative terms and the word “four”, sounding like the word for death, are not to be uttered. There are buildings without the 4th of the 14th floor. Number 14th is even worse, it means “dead for sure”. On the other hand number 8 is the luckiest number, because it sounds like the Chinese word “prosper”. It’s like Friday the 13th. Everyone accepted this, but why….?????? I don’t know…Do you know the answer?

Here is a list of some classic Chinese superstitions:

  • Shooting off firecrackers on Chinese New Year’s Eve is the Chinese way of sending out the old year and welcoming in the new.
  • The house should be cleaned before New Year’s Day.
  • Sweeping or dusting should not be done on New Year’s Day for fear that good fortune will be swept away, which if you think about it does make some sense.
  • Don’t build your house facing the north.
  • It is bad luck if your door or gate directly faces a road.

There still a lot….it will take ages to finish the list…Leave a comment if you have some superstitions that’s belong in the list above.

Rolltop – My future laptop

Will Rolltop this be my future laptop?

The device of the flexible display allows a new concept in notebook design growing out of the traditional bookformed laptop into unfurling and convolving portable computer. By virtue of the OLED-Display technology and a multi touch screen the utility of a laptop computer with its weight of a mini-notebook and screen size of 13 inch easily transforms into the graphics tablet, which with its 17-inch flat screen can be also used as a primary monitor. On top of everything else all computer utilities from power supply through the holding belt to an interactive pen are integrated in Rolltop. This is really an all-in-one gadget.

I think it’s a nice Idea, a foldable laptop but why don’t just put the hardware into the cylinder you’ve got there instead of making it into a speaker.. and make 5 small speakers come off the product. That way you’ll be able to set up your own 5.1 sound system, with only the subwoofer integrated in the cylinder and a thinner screen.

Is this really possible?
