On the other hand, any personality-revealing tidbits you do want to add can still show off who you are and what you care about. Dont: Include A Headshot (Or Pictures In General) Unless you work in select entertainment industries, like as acting or modeling, where your physical appearance is tied to the job, headshots or any other images of yourself are a no-go. Similar to protected class information, this needlessly opens you up to discrimination. And while it may sound like an obvious dont, the temptation to share images might be greater than it was a generation ago, before LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram existed. But even if those profiles are all public, its still best to leave headshots out of your application materials. Wait until the interview for them to see what you look like. Dont: Touch On Politics, Religion, Or Anything Controversial Hot-button issues are also to be avoided, unless youre applying for a position in political advocacy or some other cause-related work.

'Guess we shouldn't be too surprised that the what's going to be world's largest factory...continues to get larger. Tesla's Gigafactory, a gleaming white structure amid the muted browns surrounding Reno, Nevada, seems to be coming along, according to photos snapped by NM Group, a company that describes itself as specializing in " surveying and mapping , asset modeling and management, and engineering." SEE ALSO: Elon Musk posts image that may or may not be secret tunnel project The group was recently mapping the area for potential power lines on behalf of an electricity company, according to Tim Hustwayte, a senior client manager based in the United Kingdom. The route took them close to the Gigafactory, and they got some shots that appear to show the factory having bulked up since Tesla's battery cell began rolling off production lines at the start of the year.

When the first wooden mechanical models created by Ukrainian startup Ugears went on sale, they were an immediate hit with adult model-makers all over the world, while their “little helpers” could only watch. But now kids as old as five can take up the absorbing hobby of modeling, with a range of Ugearswooden models designed for kids now available. The new products, called Ugears4kids, are aimed at the eco toys market niche, while the main product line remains in the 14+ age group. To make the toys safer for children to assemble, Ugears4kids models dont use toothpicks to hold parts together, as in the adult models. There are fewer parts too: while a model from the main line can have from 50 to 450 parts, the models for kids have from eight to 23 parts. The line for kids has 20 different models so far, including a helicopter, a bear, a clock, and a windmill.

The Los Angeles Lakers placed a healthy Timofey Mozgov on ice in mid-March, a fact that speaks volumes about their center problem. The giant Russian hadn't played much for a month prior to that. L.A. signed the leviathan to a four-year $64 million bonanza last summer. He's not horrible, but he's also not the future. The reasoning for the shutdown was to give younger players a better chance to grow. Ivica Zubac has been the major recipient of the decision. At 7'1", the second-round rookie is a whole lot quicker and lighter than Mozgov , and is a better shot-blocker as well. During a Lakers Voices chat with host Mike Trudell , the 20-year-old said he's modeling his game after Marc Gasol . Maybe that will all pan out. Also shoring up the front line is third-year backup Tarik Black, who has plenty of hustle but a limited offensive repertoire. Meanwhile, starting power forward Julius Randle often shifts to the 5 in small-ball lineups.

Children learn in all sorts of ways: one of them that works well involves role modeling, that is, doing creative efforts together; so teach them one on one, or form a group; your child’s desires must be taken into account

We tested our theory by modeling it and estimating its efficiency for different facet orientation and different seasons, said Dr. Schmidt. We find that the observed activity is coherent with our prediction. Also we simulated it in the lab in order validate the principle. Basically, they found that in rough and boulder-strewn terrain on Mars (where shadows are cast that can cause temperature differences in small sections of soil) this process could result in the formation of dark streaks along slopes. Not only were their results consistent with observered RSLs in some areas, but they also explained how they could form without the need for liquid water or CO² frost (dry ice) activity. Simulation of the 100 meter-long recurring slope lineae detected on the Hale crater, produced by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (University of Arizona).

In October of 1969, a LIFE Magazine cover story explored a noteworthy change underway in the fashion business: women of color were not only more visible than ever as models, but they were also taking charge behind the scenes. In one of the first salvos of a conversation that is still very much ongoing about how to bring diversity to the fashion world, and why that matters the women featured in the story were working toward a future where, as the director of one agency put it, a model agency gets a call for a brunette and can just send over a black girl. At the time, though progress was still being made, black models still made less than white models simply because they got less work, and per LIFE in 1968 less than 10% of all TV commercials in the U.S. involved any black people at all. And yet, for those on the front lines of change, it was an exciting time at least that was the experience for Charlene Dash, then 20, one of the models featured in the story (and seen in slides six and seven above).

One of the general fears with digital fabrication and robotics is that they will wipe away human artistry. But that will never happen as long as people like Stefanie Pender exist. Pender, who has degrees from both RISD and Cornell, gained proficiency in glassmaking through traditional apprenticeships; she's also well-versed in industrial robotics, programming and all things CNC. After becoming an Artist in Residence at the digital fabrication playground that is Autodesk's Pier 9, she had the opportunity to combine her specialties in a novel way. Here's what happens when you have a curiosity-driven, manually-skilled, technical-minded, boundary-pushing artist that has been granted the resources to create her own digital tools: Embodied Automation from Pier 9 on Vimeo. Pender has an Instructable on her Glass Fused Filament Deposition Modeling Process here .

"We are creating a very primitive brain of an insect, a dragonfly," Bar-Nahum said. "It wakes up, sees the world and doesn't really know where it is. But it has goals to capture the other drone, and it's planning a path in the world and knows how to move through the world." The Interceptor must pack computing power and sophisticated software into that tiny drone brain. Unlike the emerging driverless car, it has to understand its environment without the benefit of an internet connection to a massive mapping database. "My background is in physics, and it's all about modeling the world" with math, Bar-Nahum said. "What we do in this lowly startup that looks to be a normal, military 'take 'em down' kind of company is build machines that can model the world." The business model is challenging too. Currently, only law enforcement officials have the authority to interfere with another drone's flight.
