HP is once again on board as the official technology sponsor for Panorama. The experiential activations all leverage the use of HP technology to create immersive interactivity for festival guests.“HP is excited to continue its reinvention journey with Panorama.

Upon squeezing through any of the multitude of openings you are immediately bombarded with LED balloons whirling in a powerful vortex of wind. The balloons swirl around the shimmering space, flowing up to the apex and back down. Persons enter and exit in games of hide and seek with their friends as they toss balloons around and play like children among the most technologically advanced balloon drop ever.Infinite Wild by Smooth TechnologyInfinite Wild is a solar-powered installation in which viewers find themselves surrounded by nature-inspired art. Flowing colors transport them on a journey through seasons, environments, and living animations. Sixty thousand LEDs dangle like vines around them as a mirrored ceiling and floor platform extends the image into infinity. Participants are invited in by a cooling mist that provides a much-needed respite from the mid-day sun. While strolling through this living jungle of LED vines, they can also be presented an opportunity to fill reusable water bottles, encouraging sustainability.As Above, So Below by Kate RaudenbushA transformative gathering space inspired by the fractal geometry of Sierpinski icosahedrons. It welcomes all to contemplate the humbling potential of their existence that occupies the here and now, and the infinitely large and infinitely small worlds that lie beyond their awareness, waiting to be discovered.(hy·per·sub·tle) by SuperbrightLook around with your phone’s camera.

Professor honored for work on climate change consensus

first_img Related Professor’s novella imagines a world done in by climate change Destination: Doom Harvard Professor of the History of Science Naomi Oreskes will be awarded the sixth annual Stephen H. Schneider Award for Outstanding Climate Science Communication, Climate One at the Commonwealth Club announced today.The award is given to a natural or social scientist who has made extraordinary scientific contributions and communicated that knowledge to a broad public in a clear and compelling fashion. It was established in honor of Stephen Henry Schneider, one of the founding fathers of climatology, who died in 2010.“I’m deeply honored to receive this award named after Stephen Schneider,” said Oreskes. “As Steve understood, communication is not just about the facts, it’s about conveying the meaning and significance of those facts — and this is what I have tried to do for climate science.” “Professor Naomi Oreskes is one of the world’s pre-eminent historians of science,” said award juror Ben Santer, a climate researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. “Her 2004 Science paper helped to quantify, for the first time, the broad scientific consensus on climate change. Her recent research unmasked the forces behind denial of human effects on climate and improved our chances of having a responsible, science-based discussion of climate change solutions.”Juror Cristine Russell, senior fellow in Harvard’s Environment and Natural Resources Program, praised Oreskes’ communication prowess: “Her defining work has had a significant impact on public understanding of human-caused climate change. Her masterful, 2010 popular book, ‘Merchants of Doubt’ [with co-author Erik M. Conway], and the subsequent documentary film drew widespread media attention to the ideological and industrial efforts by climate denialists to undermine climate science.”Oreskes has primarily been interested in the problem of anthropogenic climate change, with a particular interest in understanding scientific consensus and dissent. She is the co-founder of the Climate Accountability Institute and is investigating the ethical and legal obligations of the individuals and groups that have attempted to discredit the scientific evidence of anthropogenic climate change.She will receive the award in San Francisco on Dec. 15. The award is presented by Climate One, a project of The Commonwealth Club of California.last_img read more

B’ville girls volleyball adds another sectional Class AA title

first_imgPerhaps it was to create an extra challenge that, a year ago, the Section III girls volleyball Class AA championship match was moved to Fayetteville-Manlius, so as to give the reigning champions of Baldwinsville an extra hurdle should F-M rise to challenge them.In 2018, that didn’t prove a big obstacle – and it didn’t this time, either.With another of its comprehensive efforts, the Bees knocked off the Hornets in three sets Friday night to once again capture the sectional title and maintain a perfect record with its 16th victory in a row. Having gone on the road to defeat no. 2 seed Cicero-North Syracuse in the semifinals two nights earlier, F-M’s presence in the final meant a large, loud home crowd to counter the big traveling contingent of B’ville partisans.And the Hornets did start well, seizing a 6-4 lead in the opening set. It would also have a 5-4 edge in the second set and a 6-5 advantage early in the third set. None of those leads lasted for long.As it turned out, the first set was the toughest. Despite not trailing after it went up 8-7, B’ville found it difficult to put F-M away, the margin 17-15 late and then, even when it looked comfortable, the Hornets fought off three set points. But once the Bees took that set 25-21, things got easier. A 6-0 run early in the second set erased that 5-4 deficit and B’ville kept adding to the margin, serving well and providing plenty of power at the net that F-M could not contain.The 25-14 win in the second was followed by a third set where the Hornets again hung around for a while, only trailing 17-15 before four consecutive points ignited a closing 8-2 spurt and an ultimate 25-17 victory.Rileigh Kimball dominated at the net, piling up 19 kills to go with six digs and four aces, while Jenna Garvey’s fine all-around effort included 22 assists, six kills and four digs. Freshman Kyrah Wilbur was a top front-line presence, too, thanks to her five kills and four blocks.Summer McClintic had 15 assists, to go with three assists, five kills and two digs. Sophia Kordas notched eight kills and three digs as Brooke Clute got eight digs.B’ville’s last opportunity to play in front of a home crowd at Baker High School Gym came in last Tuesday night’s sectional AA semifinal, when it put away no. 4 seed West Genesee in three sets.The 25-10, 25-13, 25-14 rout of the Wildcats featured the Bees’ usual mix of power and precision, with Garvey at the forefront as she got 15 assists, plus seven digs and three aces.Wilbur and Kordas had four kills apiece, while Kimball mixed in three kills, five digs and six assists. Megan Brecht added four digs and Maddy Shuler had two kills as Jenna Wallace had two aces.On Thursday night, the Baldwinsville boys volleyball team looked to avenge two regular-season defeats to no. 2 seed Liverpool in Thursday’s semifinal, played at C-NS, and almost did so in an epic five-set battle.The first set hinted at the long night ahead, but the 25-23 defeat did not faze the Bees because, in the second set, it withstood several set points while missing on many of its own chances before finally pulling it out 32-30.They continued to go back and forth, Liverpool pulling out the third set 25-21, but B’ville taking the third set 25-22, so the season hung on a fifth-set race to 15 points.Only by the slightest 15-13 margin did the Warriors prevail and end the Bees’ season, this despite some fine individual performances.Aidan Priest finished with 21 kills, while Ben Stisser had 15 kills and five aces, plus a pair of blocks. Adam Lobdell added six kills as Carter Healey dished out 43 assists, plus four digs, two aces and two blocks.Quinn Moore led Liverpool with 29 assists, 16 digs, two kills, two aces and two blocks. Anthony Pezzino finished with 12 kills and 12 digs, while Jagger Alberici picked up 27 digs.Now B’ville will face Section II champion Niskayuna in next Saturday’s Class AA regional final at 11 a.m. at Jamesville-DeWitt. Kimball said her team is quite hungry to make a return to the state final four (set for Nov. 23-24 in Glens Falls) after regional defeats to Shenendehowa each of the last three years.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img Tags: Baldwinsvillevolleyballlast_img read more

When will parts of Palm Beach County open up?

first_imgPalm Beach County officials are busy working on a strategy in collaboration with the Department of Health to open parts of the county.But when will that be?Palm Beach County leaders said last week that plans to reopen non-essential businesses will come in phases, but it won’t happen until the county reaches its peak of cases.Palm Beach County Vice Mayor Robert Weinroth is giving residents some insight into the county’s plans.In a Facebook post this week, Weinroth said they have identified a recent downward trend in hospitalization and coronavirus cases, which support the county beginning to slowly reopen in a “measured and phased approach.”Weinroth said the county’s effort to flatten the curve have been working over the last 30 days.“In the month, we have done that. We have seen a real result,” said Weinroth.He said the next phase the next phase, known as Phase 2, would slowly reopen parts of the county where people can still maintain CDC guidelines.“We have to do this with the idea that people have free will, and just because we open up a venue doesn’t mean you have to go,” said Weinroth.He says the proposed strategy in Phase 2 begins with reviewing relaxing restrictions to the following locations:1) Natural Areas and Parks2) Boat Ramps, Marinas and other water activities3) Golfing and Golf Courses4) BeachesThe vice mayor said the county is developing work groups that are meeting this week to “finalize the proposed rules, regulations and enforcement associated with the partial reopening of these areas.”On Thursday, Weinroth said an update will come from the county either Friday or early next week on when the public can see an actual plan for loosening some of the stay-at-home order restrictions.A key model used by White House said social distancing measures should continue into May or June for much of the country. The model shows Florida should be among the last state to lift so-called “stay-at-home” orders.“I think this is something that is best left at a local level,” said Weiroth in regard to the model used by the White House.Weinroth said it’s hard to lump all of Florida together with the difference in coronanvirus numbers from county-to-county.He said Palm Beach County has been working closely with the health department and other experts on how to safely take action.“It is not so easy just turning on a switch,” said Weinroth.last_img read more
