Using Art To Bring Scientific Concepts To Life

By: Yasmen Refaat

Sometimes the grand ideas behind science's most important and intriguing concepts are so abstract they can be difficult to understand. One of the main goals of the International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge, sponsored by the journal Science and the National Science Foundation, is to help bring these scientific concepts to life through stunning visualizations.

The photographs, illustrations, video, and interactive graphics submitted by the contest's participants are meant to help us understand both the beauty and the science behind life's many secrets. This gallery shows just a few of the winners, which were announced Friday.

The Stand Up Meeting

By: Aya Raafat

Everyday when I start my working day, I've a call for a stand up meeting .. what ever we do.. this gives the team members a push to commit to some tasks for the day to finish it by the end of it.
 Every morning, gather the development team in the same area. That area could be a hallway, a meeting room or whatever space is available for standing. No chairs allowed.

The meeting should be over in under 10-15 minutes. The agenda is : 
  • What I Accomplished Yesterday
  • What I plan to accomplish today
  • What issues are blocking progress
