As the Sun Sets…

Time flies… especially when you’re in front of a computer screen. It was a great experience to be a part of the CT101 course.

I had a great time working on my site: I started this projected because of my personal journey in spirituality. For the most part I’ve kept my site within shades of blue because of my fondness of the ocean. (Even my user name CHILDofAGUA)

The site was separated into various categories that could give a further understanding about Lukumi. I thought to provide a history section, so users to access content about where it comes from and how it changed over time. Which lead me to create a section that could house different interviews I would gather from elders who wanted to share their stories with me. I added a vocabuarly section to help the user experience through all the content.

UPDATE: I actually changed my theme around to Sydney after the last class prevention. Added 2 new pictures that went better with my site and allowed for longer time before the header photos slide away. I changed the welcome page to speak about the site and its purpose.

I am looking forward to using the site next semester for online discussions about spirituality.



Imagine Google Translate in your hear.

New York is sometime considered a mecca of the evolution of the world! This New York based company: waverlylabs is running a pilot of wearable technology which translates a language of a speaker to the users native language. No need for a translator because the wearable device translates in realtime. The device will be available next year for $410 according to Futurism. This is part of the continued moving trend of companies developing wearable technology. I believe this is the steps society is moving closer to becoming more robot like within time. Something like straight out of a science fiction novel. The clip below introduces what the wearable technology is like:

A Small Bird Just Decided the next President

Bernie Sanders campaign just experience an endorsement from Mother Nature when during a political campaign rally in Portland, Oregon on March 24, 2016. In the Youtube Clip below, the democratic presidential nominee hopeful Bernie Sanders is interrupted by a sparrow. The audience began clapping when they noticed the little bird fly onto the stage, but the audience loses it at 0:33 of the clip when the sparrow actually flies closer to Sanders and lands on his podium. The media and Sanders supporters alike have seen this moment as a sign from the Universe… Bernie Sanders will be the next President of the United States of America.

March Madness brings Lunar Eclipse!

March 23rd, 2016 brought to us one of the astonishing wonders of our solar system, Lunar Eclipse. It will be visible from North and South America as well as Most of Asia. Though it will not be as special as the 4 consecutive blood moon eclipses we had over the past 2 years. This lunar eclipse lasted for 4 hours and 15 minutes around 7:47 am EDT. The next lunar eclipse will not be until August 18, 2016 and the next solar eclipse will be on September 1, 2016.
