“Isle of Dogs” tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies to Trash Island in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots.

Statistics show that YouTube is now the second most popular social networking site; with 1.5 billion users just behind Facebook’s 2.1 billion. These figures provided by DreamGrow show that video content is leading the way far beyond static photography – even Facebook timelines are now filled with video.
Even the world’s most popular photo-sharing platform, Instagram, has just 800 million users; around half the volume of YouTube’s. Tellingly, Instagram is also filled with moving pictures, via its hugely popular Stories and Boomerang add-ons, plus video-snippet sharing capabilities on its regular grid.
So – it’s safe to say that video is the internet’s most engaging and engaged-with content. Does your website reflect this? If not, you need to act now. Here’s all the reasons why you should bring your site and therefore your business up-to-date, before the latest upgrade of the digital age renders you obsolete.
It’s vital for SEO
Google is always watching – and it sees that people love watching video. We humans are arguably lazy creatures, who will always prefer to be explained to rather than attempt to read and understand things ourselves. This is a primary reason for YouTube’s meteoric rise, and therefore why people choose to visit sites with high video content. Search engines register that people stay on pages much longer where videos are present, and voila – sites featuring lots of videos are bumped up to top spots in search results. We all know by now that top rankings equal more visits and more business. What does this mean? You guessed it. Your site needs video, front and centre.
Stand out from the crowd
Having said this, there are still hundreds of thousands of sites that have not cottoned on to this trend. Getting ahead of the crowd now by creating video content for your site willContinue Reading

Why Technologies Are Essential
We could spend considerably less time on searching for the needed information or writing an essay. Saved hours could be spent on, say, learning more about other countries and cultures at home, communicating with people who are very far away from us, and using loads of other opportunities.

The world is changing, developing every day. And our future may seem a scene from a fantastic movie. But the predictions are that we do not need to use our imagination in order to find out what our future will look like. What’s more, we can try to foresee it without any witchcraft.
Visualization: Make Your Thoughts Visible
Nowadays, scientists are trying to see human thoughts on special screens. Although these experiments are not very successful now, researchers are sure that the gadgets visualizing our thinking may exist in the near future, and it would become a usual thing, just like as a smartphone for each of us today.
And such device would change the whole media market of the planet.
How Does It Work?
Such neurocomputer interface would be able to “read” human thoughts and transmit them to the monitor of a computer. It may be difficult to believe in that, but people in the 18th century did not believe in smartphones and Facetime, so you can draw a conclusion.
