Kuvat Margit Mannila Olen käyttänyt Canvas-mallia muutamissa yhteydessä ja havainnut, että muutkin tekevät niin. Aloitin jälleen tammikuun alussa tutkimustyöhön liittyvän kurssin pitämisen ja kävin katsomassa, joskos aiheeseen liittyen joku olisi ehtinyt mallintamaan tutkimuksen tekemisestä oman canvas-mallin. Ja niitähän löytyi. Kuvan lähde tästä linkistä (16.1.2019). Tieteellisiä artikkeleja hakusanalla reserch model canvas (16.1.2019) löytyy oheisesta linkistä.  ...

Yesterday I found from an antiquarian bookshop a biography of Herbert Spencer written by Otto Gaupp in 1911 (the language used in this Finnish translation from German is touchingly old-fashioned). The book (which I'm still reading) raises Spencer as one of the greatest philosophers who has ever been alive. And for good reason, as it was actually him, not Darwin, who should be considered the father of evolutionism. At his time Spencer was widely respected as a versatile genius, but today his...

To those of us who love strange literature, Rukhnama is doubtless a gem. It is the sequel to the Bible and the Qur´an written by the dictator of Turkmenistan, President Saparmurat "Turkmenbashi" (the leader of all Turkmens) Niyazov. Available in various different languages at the website of the government of Turkmenistan, it must be one of the most bizarre pieces of literature written in the past few hundred years. While I do not wish to dwell on the contents of this extraordinary book, there...

What I should be doing is the final assignment for the course in the basics of university pedagogy. What I am doing is this. I hope writing this blog will clarify my thoughts enough to be able to finish the actual assignment. I have been teaching undergraduates now and then for more than ten years. Mostly I have had one or two course in an academic year, often a parallel course to a university one in the open university. I think my first courses were pretty straightforward - I did it as I had...

BBC News , a bastion of political correctness, has gone out of its way and published the following article : Does diversity make us unhappy? By Mark Easton Home editor, BBC News It is an uncomfortable conclusion from happiness research data perhaps - but multicultural communities tend to be less trusting and less happy. Research by the Home Office suggests that the more ethnically diverse an area is, the less people are likely to trust each other. The Commission for Racial Equality has also...

According to the south-Swedish newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad , Sverigedemokraterna is popular among youth , or, as the researcher suggets, it might just be a sign of teenage rebellion. Here are some excerpts from the article: "Every other ninth-grader does not know what party they would vote for in the parliamentary elections, or if they would vote at all, shows the extensive opinion research. At the same time the Sweden Democrats are enjoying great support. They became the most popular party...

I was reading today my favourite blog. I haven't read it for a while and through it I found a couple of new interesting blogs. I got to laugh many times when reading them. Why couldn't I try this also. And because I'm far away from my native country, I thought, I could keep contact to my friends this way (many flies at the same time...). I'm lazy to write otherwise. So what happened today... Once upon a time there was a little girl, or sometimes I would wish it that I would never had grown...

Dear friends, Evidence is emerging that traces swine flu to giant factory pig farms that are dirty, dangerous, and inhumane. Sign the petition to the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization to investigate and regulate these threats to our health: No-one yet knows whether swine flu will become a global pandemic, but it is becoming clear where it came from – most likely a giant pig factory farm run by an American multinational corporation in Veracruz, Mexico.(1)...

I´ve studied several aspects regarding oil in recent years, and I have come to believe that the Peak Oil theory is, to a certain extent at least, a necessary part of explaining what is happening in the world today. Today I have, however, read articles that cast significant doubt on the whole Peak Oil idea, as well as much more. According to the Texan Gas Resources Coproration´s website , the whole idea that oil is a fossil fuel has been proven wrong a long time ago, and the Russians, who are...

From the corner of the world -

Today I have been busy with observing people. That's actually a fun thing to do. Probably I have done it more than I know because I when I was leaning out of my kitchen window this morning after my morning cup of tea, I realised that I even know where some passer-bys live!? Scary, huh? A tanned man in black clothes was walking in the street with his small shopping bag, probably heading towards the store that had just opened for the day. He lives on the corner opposite our house - I know it...

The Real Encyclopedia -

One month ago, I received an e-mail from a restaurant in Northern Poland. The subject of the mail was the Kebab animal. The owner of the restaurant wanted to know where is the Kebab animal from and how should you feed it. This time the research has taken some time and I haven´t been able to write an answer before I was completely sure of every detail. Because of this question, I had to travel to southern Turkey and live there two weeks with nomads. Answer comes here: PART III: THE ORIGIN AND...

Vihaan työtäni -

I think it's time to make a little update on this blog. The main reason why I haven't been writing for a while is because I still like my current job and my projects. I'm currently doing research at the University for around 10-20 hours a week and I do it just because I enjoy it. I wouldn't have to do it, since I have secured my income a while ago. How did I do it in under a year, you may ask. I saved some money and invested it. I took huge risks and it paid off. I'm still investing into...

I've read few self-help books in my life, mostly because I was bored and couldn't handle anymore the of classics. Then I have browsed a few, just so I could confirm how full of bullshit they are. I mean, look at some of the covers: The Science of Getting Rich, The Greatest Saleman in the World, 4-hour workweek... what the fuck?! Are people so stupid that they actually believe this bullshit? Mostly these books have the same content and only one who's getting rich by following them is the...

Mikä: Pearl Jam - Vs. Ensikosketus: Melko lailla levyn ilmestymisen lähimaastossa, varmaan alkuvuodesta 1994. Kappale taisi olla kaverin kasetilta kuultu, nerokkaasti nimetty ja levyn linjasta hiukan poikkeava "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town". Hankinta: Kasettikopio tuli vaihdettua CD-muotoon vuonna 1997, löytyi käytettynä CD Research-puodista Kalifornian päässä. Tuli kyseisestä kaupasta haalittua aikamoinen läjä muitakin levyjä yhden vuoden aikana. Turhautumista...

Exergame-project just accomplished a prelimiary study of braingaming. Thanks to Amo Oy we got NDS consoles and the games: Big Brain Academy and Brain Training to be utilized in user tests. Our consumer researchers organized group interviews with experts, seniors ( Enter Ry ) and 45+ working age people. The results were very encouraging and rousing! We shall continue more practical research tasks in the fall 2007 hopefully with companies active in the field.

I'll start with the courses of the Fall semester Basic Course in Mathematics C3 The third and final basic math course in the CS program. The first half was pretty much Linear Algebra (matrices, eigenvalues/vectors etc, matrix exponent..) and then using them to solve systems of differential equations. Laplace transform was also introduced as an alternative to solving those problems. not. The first half was a bit scary at first because I had managed to miss the Mathematics 1 for CS program where...

Pienet koulut ja koululaiset -

Englantia tavaavalle Internetin maailma on pullollaan mielenkiintoisia linkkejä koskien pieniä kouluja, lähikouluja, koulutaisteluita, koulukeskusteluja ja erilaisia koulutukseen liittyviä aatteellisia organisaatioita. Maailman merillä on huomioitava se, että esimerkiksi amerikkalaisilla sivustoilla lähestymistapa koulukysymyksiin on hieman erilainen kuin meillä täällä Suomessa. Pääosaa keskusteluissa näyttelevät eri koulujen oppimistulosten (koulukohtaisten pisteiden ja...

One of my icons, Rita Hayworth, who wore her hair very dark, red, and blonde.  So as some of you who are my Facebook friends have the misfortune to know, I have been obsessed with my hair in the last couple of months.  When my hair doesn't feel right, I'm in a state of permanent crisis, resembling a wet cat -- profoundly miserable until my hair is fixed, and hilarious to everyone except myself.   This is me. I've been using henna to intensity for red hair for about the past year, and the...

It finally happened. It’s been knocking on my door for the past 3-4 years and now it broke the door and came crashing in. Burn out, the magic word of the 21 st century. I started to get worried about myself a while ago when I realized that I’ve started skipping school for no apparent reason. I skip at least 3-4 hours a week and it’s not that I was especially tired or anything, I just can’t find the motivation to put on shoes and leave for school. I have also stopped going to the gym...

Julie Allinson ja Elizabeth Harbord kuvaavat artikkelissaan SHERPA to YODL-ING: Digital Mountaineering at York oman yliopistonsa kehitysvaiheita vuodesta 2002 alkaen.  Aluksi perustettiin...

Norpan sekoitus -

With industry suits convinced that the most effective way to expand gaming is by making simpler, less dynamic experiences to appeal to an uninitiated majority, publishers are going bonkers trying to cash in on cheaper games. In fact, for all its Zen-like appeal, Nintendo's Blue Ocean philosophy boils down to a neo-hippie way of saying that they’re embracing the casual market. We didn’t realize that meant re-branding old games, but here we are dealing with Magnetica . Or Puzz Loop . Or Zuma...

In 2007 (January - June) we will continue working with youth but also focus on seniors because 66+ year olds were bring forth interesting notions - weak signals if you prefer - at the consumer study. We will also do networking -- and I would like to urge any one of you (universities and companies) to drop me a line if you are...
