Siddhartha te canta "A la distancia"



A poco más de un año que estrenó su más reciente disco, “Únicos”, el cantautor tapatío Siddhartha sigue con la promoción de su álbum y ahora está lanzando el tercer sencillo de esta placa llamado “A la distancia”, una balada rock con sonidos de antaño que evocan a la nostalgia.

La letra es sobre una pareja que termina su relación, pero la experiencia de haber compartido un momento de sus vidas, la recordarán por siempre. En este momento el músico se encuentra en Baja California Sur donde rodará el videoclip que estará listo en las próximas semanas.

“Este sencillo fue el que la gente de alguna manera eligió a través de los plays, en las redes y la reacción en los conciertos y decidimos hacerle caso al público. Fue un tema que prácticamente no me di cuenta en qué momento lo compuse, fue como entre una canción y otra mientras estábamos en un ensayo, y se me vino la idea a la mente y fue algo que surgió así, muy espontáneo, y así las cosas son buenas, cuando no hay que forzarlas y dan de sí”, comparte en entrevista.

“Únicos” ha sido un disco que le ha permitido a Siddhartha estar de gira por diferentes países de América Latina, pero también naciones como Estados Unidos y España, “hemos hecho como 15 ciudades de Estados Unidos y recorrido lugares de Ecuador, Guatemala y Argentina, ahora en México estamos en el cierre de año, recorriendo de Norte a Sur”.

Siddhartha ha estado componiendo nueva música y recién acaba de producir para una banda tapatía y en junio pasado para Sasha Sokol. “Para 2018 tengo otros proyectos también, continúo con el tour ‘Únicos’… Vamos  a sacar un cuarto sencillo que probablemente sea una versión en vivo y empezará a grabar un nuevo disco”.

Viene al Foro FIL

El domingo 26 de noviembre Siddhartha estará alternando el escenario con el español Xoel López a las 21:00 horas en el Foro Expo en el marco de la Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara (FIL), la entrada es gratuita. “Nosotros vamos a tocar alrededor de las 22:00 horas, para invitar a la gente a que se quede a esa hora. Estoy  emocionado porque es un concierto gratuito para todo el mundo, eso le da mucha oportunidad a gente que de pronto no tiene el recurso (de comprar un boleto)”.

Compartir el escenario con Xoel se debe a que Madrid es el invitado de honor de la FIL, explica Siddhartha que es una buena opción para el público de disfrutar dos propuestas musicales distintas, de momento no se prevé que vayan a colaborar en el escenario. “Acabo de estar en España y esto ha sido como una suerte de intercambio, en julio estuve por allá y varios (de ese país) ahora serán parte del elenco de la FIL, son parte de la escena alternativa entre España y México. No hemos planeado hasta ahora ninguna colaboración (con Xoel) pero tampoco está descartado”, finaliza.

Cam Newton leads Panthers’ reborn run game to win



Denizens of Charlotte were treated to a throwback performance from Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers (7-3) in their 45-21 beatdown of the Miami Dolphins (4-5) in Week 10. Is Carolina’s rejuvenated running game a sign of things to come? Here’s what we learned:

1. The Panthers are cooking with the same recipe that took them to the Super Bowl. After weeks of experimenting with new philosophies and emphasizing certain talent, Carolina has reverted to its most successful formula: Let Cam run. Sell Cam running. Reap the benefits.

For the second straight week, the Panthers mauled the opposition on the ground, this time led by Jonathan Stewart, who was previously floundering at a career-low 2.9 YPC clip. The 30-year-old found his footing against Miami, gashing the flopping Fins for a season-high 110 yards in a throwback performance that inspired his teammates. As Cam put it, “Guys were just sensing that he was kind of down and low, so for him to come out … man, it’s big for not only him, but for everybody else. For him, getting confidence in himself. And for the people who never doubted his talents … for him to come out today was a big deal for us.”


Sprung by deft blocking from flourishing fill-in Ed Dickson and fellow tailback Christian McCaffrey, Carolina’s run game, with a season-best 294 yards, paced a balanced effort from an offense which compiled a franchise-record 548 total yards on Monday night, an offense that has thrived since Kelvin Benjamin‘s exodus. (McCaffrey, in an understated role, scored two touchdowns and put Kiko Alonso on skates twice.) Ron Rivera has given up on the Smother-Cam-in-Bubble-Wrap Strategy — a preseason pipe dream, in retrospect — and instead is emphasizing run-pass options for his still dangerous QB. To no one’s surprise, defenses continue to bite, allowing for plays like Cam’s game-wrecking 69-yard scamper. According to him, Carolina’s record evening is just the beginning.

“I feel as if we’re still scratching the surface with our potential and things that we can do as a whole in this offense,” Newton told reporters. “We still left a lot of plays out there. We’ll get them corrected. … That’s just some of the certain things that we’re capable of.”

2. Against a competent Dolphins secondary, Newton had his best game through the air (254 yards, 4 TD) since Benjamin left for Buffalo. Cam’s replacement receivers, Russell Shepard and Curtis Samuel, did little to help their quarterback, dropping by my count at least four easy balls. But Newton found his security blankets downfield in his taller targets, Dickson and Devin Funchess, the latter of whom, in the eyes of interim GM Marty Hurney, made Benjamin expendable. So far, ’twas a good assessment. Funchess reeled in two scores (one bubble-screen scamper, one back-shoulder haul) and 92 yards. Dickson played Greg Olsen‘s role to perfection, tallying a score of his own. (Dare I sarcastically suggest: Kelvin who?)


3. Miami’s three-loss march through national television is mercifully over. Blessed be the fruit. Regardless of who’s been under center, the Dolphins have failed to develop an identity or rhythm on offense more than halfway through the season, a trend that continued on Monday night. Cutler fell into his same psychological trappings, throwing aimless heaves off his back foot and ill-advised balls into traffic. The quarterback’s interception to Luke Kuechly with less than a minute go in the first half, in the shadow of his own goal post no less, was, yes, an athletic play from the All-Pro linebacker and a questionable play call, but also just poor decision-making that tripled Miami’s halftime deficit. On defense, the return of safety T.J. McDonald did nothing to inspire a listless Dolphins defense that was dominated at the point of attack from the first snap. The 4-5 Fins have a shot in the mediocre AFC, but, if we’re being honest, they could easily be 0-9 or 1-8.

4. Those with short memories probably crowned the New Orleans Saints as the class of the NFC after their demolition of the Bills in Buffalo on Sunday. News flash to the sheeple: The Panthers are just a half game behind the Saints … for the lead in the NFC South. That’s how crowded and complicated this NFC playoff race is shaping up to be. Atlanta, at 5-4, is still in contention, but the conference’s two hottest ground games reside in Charlotte and New Orleans. A Week 13 super showdown in the Superdome looms.

¿Quién es la modelo que conquistó a Diego Luna?


La historia empieza así: en 2013 se dio la separación entre Diego Luna con su ex esposa Camila Sodi; dos años después, en 2015, Suki Waterhouse terminó su relación con el actor Bradley Cooper. A partir del rodaje de la película “Bad Batch”, Luna y Waterhouse están juntos.

A dos años de relación, la pareja ha demostrado que ni la distancia ni la edad es un impedimento para el amor. Pero, ¿quién es Suki Waterhouse?

Es una actriz y modelo británica que nació el 5 de enero del 1992 en Londres, Inglaterra. Hija de un cirujano plástico llamado Norman Waterhouse y de una enfermera.

Actualmente tiene 25 años de edad, 12 años menos que Luna. Comenzó su carrera de modelaje a los 16 años, y a los 19 protagonizó su primera campaña comercial de lencería.

Su fama ascendió cuando actuó en un capítulo de la serie “Material Girl” y en películas como “Love, Rosie”, “Rachel” y “Pusher”.

Ha sido la imagen de marcas como Redken y Burberry; además, ha modelado para H&M, Swatch y Tommy Hilfiger, por mencionar algunos.

Entre otras cosas, la modelo británica también es fotógrafa y ha expuesto su trabajo en galerías de Londres a lado Reggie Yates de Imogen Morris Clarke.

Antes de iniciar su relación con Diego Luna tuvo varios romances con personajes como Luke Pritchard, vocalista de The Kooks, Miles Kane de la agrupación Last Shadow Puppets y el actor estadounidense Bradley Cooper.

En 2015 marcó una breve tendencia, pues en una entrevista para la revista US Weekly afirmó que para lograr una textura y volumen para su cabellera lo enjuagaba con Coca Cola.

Después de esto, muchas jóvenes comenzaron a utilizar esta táctica y compartieron sus resultados a través de YouTube.

Bitcoin price swings translates into big volumes

  • Bitcoin,
    the red-hot digital currency known for its volatile price, was
    on a wild ride this weekend.
  • Bitcoin crashed more than 25% from its all-time high of
    $7,721 set Wednesday to a low of $5,617 per coin on Sunday,
    according to data from cryptocurrency watcher
    CoinDesk. 
  • Bitcoin cash, on the other hand, propelled to a
    record-high of $2,500 early Sunday morning.
  • Trading volumes on Sunday peaked at over $26 billion,
    according to cryptocurrency data site CoinMarketCap.com.
  • That’s higher than the 5-day average trading volume for
    some US equity exchanges.

Bitcoin, the red-hot digital currency, had a wild weekend and
that appears to have translated into record-breaking trading
volumes across the cryptocurrency market.

Bitcoin crashed more than 25% from Wednesday’s all-time high to a
low of $5,617 Sunday. Bitcoin cash, the rival clone of bitcoin,
witnessed an impressive rally that propelled the coin to a
record-high of $2,500 early Sunday morning.

The 24-hour trading volumes for cryptocurrencies reached a record
above $26 billion on Sunday, according to data site CoinMarketCap.com, the
highest ever.

To put that in perspective, that is higher than the 5-day average
trading volumes for two US stock exchanges. Both IEX, the upstart
exchange based in New York, and the Chicago Stock Exchange
averaged less than $10 billion in trading each day for the last
five days, according to data by Cboe Global
Markets
.

IEX saw $7.8 billion worth of shares exchange on its venue,
whereas CHX witness $3.1 billion in trading volumes.

New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, on the other hand, saw more
than $50 billion worth of shares exchange daily on average over
the last 5 trading days.

Still, the record cryptocurrency volumes over the weekend
indicate the growing interest in the red-hot market, which until
very recently has rarely witnessed daily trading volumes over $10
billion.

In an October 16 note to clients, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
said cryptocurrencies present
a $1.6 billion opportunity for Wall Street
. The figure was
based on the assumption that cryptocurrency volumes end up
at about 10% of current fiat currency trading volumes.
Here’s the bank:

“The FX market is highly liquid. For example, spot FX volumes
were $1.65tr as of the most recent BIT Triennial survey in April
2016. If these volumes were to materialize, with the same
relationship between spot market and futures, and the same
revenue per contract, the revenue pool would be about $1.6bn.”

Already, exchange giants Cboe and CME are looking to capitalize
on the nascent space. They have both announced they are preparing
to launch
bitcoin futures products in the near term
.

Higher volumes, according to Bank of America, could help
legitimize cryptocurrencies across Wall Street, which still
remains widely skeptical of their credibility.

Many top Wall Streeters have derided bitcoin, for instance, as a
vehicle used mainly by criminals.


In an interview with Bloomberg News
, Larry Fink, the head of
the largest investor in the world, BlackRock said the explosive
growth of bitcoin points to “how much money laundering is being
done in the world.”

And JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon once said bitcoin was only useful
for murderers and drug dealers.

VIDEO: Una tarántula lucha hasta la muerte por su vida contra una avispa de la mitad de su tamaño



Una familia estadounidense filmó la lucha a muerte entre una gran tarántula y una avispa de la mitad de su tamaño. En el video, publicado en YouTube, se ve como esta “avispa de las arañas”, que caza específicamente arácnidos y es propia del desierto de Sonora (EE. UU.), pica a su oponente repetidamente, hasta dejarla paralizada e indefensa.

Karen y Matthew Perry se encontraban de excursión con sus hijos, Cash y Cadence. Uno de los chicos se interesó por lo que estaba sucediendo, procedió a filmarlo y además comentó cada percance de la batalla que presenció.

Se trata de un tipo peculiar de avispas que suelen cazar y luego paralizar a las arañas para depositar sus huevos en ellas.

A simple and effective UX research tool


Card sorting is a design research tool that helps you design your product (e.g., a website, an app) so users can more easily find what they want. Card sorting is usually used near the beginning of the design process, and can be used to guide the design of the navigation menu and the overall structure (information architecture) of the product.

Why Card Sorting?

Card sorting is effective and simple. There are many reasons to use it:

  • Easy to conduct (can be set up by anyone!)
  • Inexpensive (can be done with just paper and pens!)
  • Quick (can see patterns from as little as 5 card sorts!)
  • Powerful insights and results (can reveal a lot about how users think!)

Card sorting is all about bridging the gap between how a user understands the subject and how a website or app can match that understanding and present information or functionality to users in a way that’s easy to find.

How does Card Sorting work?

The process of a card sort is exactly what it sounds like — participants (ideally, people who would normally use the website or app) categorize things written on cards into different groups that just simply make sense to them. The cards contain either content or functionality that the website or app would have.

Card sorts can be open or closed:

Card sorts can also be team or individual:

Card sorting can return valuable insights using any combination of open vs. closed and team vs. individual, so don’t let scheduling or other logistical challenges stop you from giving it a try!

Learning from Card Sorting

Last week, I led a Boltmade Session (free community tech workshops hosted by Boltmade) to explore these concepts. We had a lot of fun learning and discussing how card sorting can be used as an effective UX research tool, and also performing a couple of card sorts ourselves.

Activity #1: Museum Sort (an open, team sort)

With the first activity, we were able to get a sense of what a real participant would experience in a card sort. In teams of 2 or 3, everyone sorted a set of 54 cards that had been pre-printed with the names of museum exhibits such as Chinese Architecture, Terry Fox, and Bronze Age. Because this was an open card sort, teams also had to generate their own categories to put cards under.

Many good discussions and questions came up during the sort:

  • How should cards be sorted? By chronology? By subject? By type of exhibit?
  • Where should Kid’s Zone go, since it doesn’t quite fit with anything else?
  • Should World War I be categorized under World History or under Canada? Who is the museum for, and what does the exhibit actually cover?

All of these struggles and debates about which cards to group together are perfectly normal during a card sort, as there is no one right answer. These discussions that happen during the activity of sorting are very useful when working on a proposed design; much of it might have been missed if we had only looked at the final outcome of the sort.

Key takeaway: The process of card sorting and the reasonings that come out of it are as valuable as the product of the groupings that are generated as a result.

Activity #2: Website Sort (a closed, individual sort)

In our second activity, we saw how a card sort done individually and online is different from a team, in-person sort. We also saw how a closed card sort can be used to improve an existing site.

Using a tool called OptimalSort, we sorted content from the website for Banff National Park into predefined categories that were taken from the existing website. This card sort was very easy to analyze because the online tool did all the work automatically. At a glance, it was easy to see that some content on the existing site didn’t match our expectations. For example, most of us grouped Top 10 Things to Do into the Activitiescategory, but on the actual website it is under Visitor Information, where few of us placed it.

We speculated that Top 10 had been placed under Visitor Informationbecause website visitors are likely to explore that section and thus be more likely to discover it. Interestingly, on the current website, there are no sub-categories under Activities. Card sorting results suggest that either the website navigation structure should be reconsidered, or alternatively, the Activities section could be removed so that users don’t try to find activity information under it when it’s not actually there.

Key takeaways: Card sorting results should not be taken at face value as the final answer. It is one data source to consider, and should be triangulated with other information, criteria, and informed intuition when creating a proposed design. Follow-up evaluation such as usability testing is also important.

Card Sorting Key Points

  • Card sorting is simple and effective
  • The discussion that happens during a card sort is just as or sometimes even more valuable than the actual outcome of the card sort
  • The results of a card sort are a great data point, but should be considered along with other research and informed intuition
