Horses keep the rough low!

Horses keep the rough low!

ST. LUCIA, THE CARIBBEAN

The amazing thing isn't that there are horses grazing on the rough at St. Lucia Golf Resort & Country Club. It's that they always seem to be standing off to the left side of the fairway, about 250 yards out. Call it learned behavior from years of dodging short slices in the opposite direction. A shortage of grazing land makes the borders of the course prime real estate for local ranchers, so they've struck an agreement with the course's management to use their horses to help with grass maintenance—the old-fashioned way. Before the course-construction bubble burst, architects Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman were in the process of making St. Lucia a premier golf destination, with two new courses. But that never materialized, leaving the Caribbean island with only the par-71, 6,685-yard layout. It's worth a round. Just remember to bring some carrots.

'I have a B.A. in cellphones'

tim oliver

A recent study by Baylor University found that college students are spending nearly 9 hours a day on their smartphones. (Or as the cynic would say: What they aren't doing is studying!)

No surprise that texting is by far the activity they spend the most time on. Facebook ranked second.

Smartphone activity varies among the sexes. Women like Pinterest and Instagram. Men prefer games.

Other interesting numbers from the study:

10: avg. number of hours female college students report using their smartphones each day.

105: avg. number of minutes college women say they text each day.

90: number of text 1/3 of survey respondents said they send every day. Some send more. What they aren't doing is making a lot of phone calls. 79% say they make 0-5 calls per day.

The study concludes, "As the functionality of cell-phones continues to expand, addiction to this seemingly indispensable piece of technology becomes an increasingly realistic possibility...cell-phones can lead to dependence (as shown in the present study) and restrictions. Cell-phones have become inextricably woven into our daily lives – an almost invisible driver of modern life."

Or as another researcher wrote, cell-phone use is “possibly the biggest non-drug addiction of the 21 century.”

What does this have to do with the future of print? To be addressed in a future post.

 

 

#hyperlapse is going to be a big hit

tim oliver

Get ready for a rush of fast, time-lapse videos to hit a smart phone near you. Instragram has released Hyperlapse, one of the company's first apps outside of Instagram itself. Free at Apple's app store.....and easy to use.

Took me a few minutes to do my first one.

Prediction: The kids are going to go crazy over this one.
