Learning the ‘Science of Feelings’: Religious Training in Eastern Christian Monasticism: Ethnos: Vol 77, No 2

In Eastern Christianity novitiate is a period of learning to experience the presence of God in one's life and the world. Novices follow the hesychast prayer, a mystical tradition that leads them to an experiential knowledge of God. In this paper, I argue that novitiate should be regarded as a complex learning process involving specific assemblages of contextual, cognitive, body-sensory and emotional aspects. By educating their attention and emotion novices learn to see beyond and within reality and thus discover the potentiality of people and things ‘in the likeness of God’. Religious transmission happens not only through embodied practice and the active acquisition of religious knowledge but, more importantly, through the work of the imagination. Novices' orientation towards the transcendent requires an expansion of the imaginative capacities beyond their ‘routine’ functioning. Imagination could be thus seen as a key cognitive capacity through which they learn to experience God.

Cellular networks - 3GPP etc.
"At the @EnigmaConf EFF panel a few months ago, @JoeBeOne asked a very good question: how we should think about cell networks differently than Internet networks?"

When Everything Clicks | Hidden Brain : NPR Jun 2018
Frisbee coach Martin Levy is a big fan of the clicker. He uses it to train his border collies to perform complex jumps and twirls on the Frisbee field. In 2012, after successfully using a clicker to teach his other Frisbee students — the human ones — he decided to up the stakes, and test it out at his day job: as an orthopedic surgeon.

Science in hand: how art and craft can boost reproducibility - Nature News, Dec 2018
“We — a surgeon, a research nurse and a synthetic chemist — looked beyond science to discover how people steeped in artistic skills might help to close this ‘haptic gap’, the deficit in skills of touch and object manipulation. We have found that craftspeople and performers can work fruitfully alongside scientists to address some of the challenges. We have also discovered striking similarities between the observational skills of an entomologist and an analytical chemist; the dexterity of a jeweller and a microsurgeon; the bodily awareness of a dancer and a space scientist; and the creative skills of a scientific glassblower, a reconstructive surgeon, a potter and a chef.”

2-DAY TRAINING 2: Hacking the IoT with Software Defined Radio « HITBSecConf2016 – Amsterdam
"One of the key attributes of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that it makes heavy use of wireless communications to allow for mobility and easy-of-installation. It is important to note this is not just Wi-Fi, but all manner of other Radio Frequency (RF) protocols: Bluetooth, BTLE, ZigBee, Z-Wave – to name just a few. The increasing ubiquity of such devices and networks promises to make life easier (smart fridges, …), however manufactures often overlook the security in the implementation of this RF communication systems.

This course will teach you the fundamentals of how to use Software Defined Radio (SDR) to analyse, demodulate and decode RF signals used in the wireless IoT, and then how you can perform your own research and penetration testing to test whether a system is secure, or vulnerable to attack."

Measuring adult skills: What can you do? | The Economist Oct 2013
The OECD "has just produced new research on adult literacy, numeracy and problem-solving skills in 22 countries. Finland and Japan came top. The worst performers were Italy and Spain, where over a quarter of adults were rated at below the most basic reading level. The same countries fared poorly in basic maths skills, too: almost a third of grown-ups in Italy, Spain and America showed a poor grasp of numbers, against only one in eight in Finland and the Czech Republic and less than one in ten in Japan (see chart)." "The report notes a link between high performance and more egalitarian societies such as the Nordic ones. Countries with greater social disparities, such as Britain, Germany, France and America, do less well. Well-intentioned plans to boost the brainpower of workforces by pushing more people into universities are now also looking flawed. "
