Video about the Dutch Safety Board’s investigation into the causes of the crash of flight MH17 on 17 July 2014 in the eastern part of Ukraine and the Board’s investigation into flying over conflict zones.
Quite neat to see that the fuselage was reconstructed with the shards an pieces found. Do note that this analysis points out the cause of the crash, not the one responsible for the crash.
The aforementioned Sad Topographies reminded me of The Jefferson Grid, an Instagram account curating a list of areal photos depicting a grid with cells the size of one square mile each, spread throughout the United States.
Looking from the window seat on a long plane flight, you might have noticed that large swaths of the United States are divided into a latticework of farms, towns and forests. The cells of that grid, each one mile to a side, are the visible result of a land planning system first proposed by Thomas Jefferson more than two centuries ago.
In this paper, we present an augmented reality coloring book App in which children color characters in a printed coloring book and inspect their work using a mobile device. The drawing is detected and tracked, and the video stream is augmented with an animated 3-D version of the character that is textured according to the child’s coloring.
Copying text to the clipboard shouldn’t be hard. It shouldn’t require dozens of steps to configure or hundreds of KBs to load. But most of all, it shouldn’t depend on Flash or any bloated framework. That’s why clipboard.js exists.
Great to see that this is possible without Flash, but must admit that I’m not too fond of the API and how to use it. For example the name data-clipboard-target is wrong, as it’s the source, not the target. On a sidenote I’m looking forward to the Clipboard API and events spec 😉
The viewport is set incorrectly when the viewport meta tag is specified with initial-scale=1 or width=device-width, and the page contains an element (e.g. div tag) that is wider than the desired viewport’s boundary.
In the screenshot above (courtesy @RWD) you can see that the off-screen menu actually appears on-screen in iOS9. Apple changed how iOS9 responds to width=device-width as it, according to them, got abused too much.
To fix this, append shrink-to-fit=no to your viewport meta tag, as such:
