Caption: This summer, millions of eyes will be watching Rio de Janeiro, as the 2016 Summer Olympics descend on the Brazilian city.It s at the Jewish Museum of New York until September 18, and it represents recognition at last of the tremendous influence Marx had on modern landscape architecture.Decades later, you can see that influence in, for example, the abandoned rail viaduct in New York City that James Corner Field Operations turned into the vaunted High Line.It sounds ridiculous that in a place like Brazil, that s so blessed with incredible flora and nature, people were importing roses and European species for gardens, Nahson says.The Jewish Museum show, the first comprehensive survey of Burle Marx s work in a quarter century, includes photos of all those parks, as well as paintings, sculptures, textiles, jewelry, ceramics, and works of stained-glass.But the designs live on, as a backdrop for the wheels of speeding Olympian cyclists.

It may be hard to imagine a time before they existed, but Apple's retail stores celebrated their 15th birthday on Thursday.When they first opened, the concept of an Apple Store seemed like a risky proposition — The New York Times called it "an aggressive move during an economic slowdown".At the time, Apple's computer business was doing ok, but the personal computer landscape was still dominated by Windows PCs.The iPod was a success, but in the pre-iPhone days Apple didn't have a lot of money to burn on ventures like retail.Fifteen years and 479 stores later, the bet Apple made paid off.Apple stores generate more revenue per square foot than any other retailer — even jewelry stores.Before they officially opened, Steve Jobs made a video walkthrough of the Tysons Corner, VA store to give folks an idea of what the stores would look like.Some things, including the genius bar and long wooden tables, have remained the same, while the overall layout of the stores has since evolved.The video is a blast from the past, and comes from a time when Apple was still the underdog, trying new things to differentiate themselves from all the other PC makers.
Ivy Ross is the head of Project Aura, Google's secretive wearables branch, but she took an unusual path to become a tech executive.Over the past two decades, Ross' career has included stints in companies ranging from Mattel to Gap Inc., and before that she was an acclaimed jewelry designer with work in the world's foremost museums.In her commencement address at the Fashion Institute of Technology FIT on Thursday, Ross told the new graduates that she was grateful her unorthodox career path taught her fundamental truths.Business Insider caught up with Ross after her speech to distill her story into her top lessons for people still in the early stages of their careers.'Get your ego out of the way so that your heart can be your operating system'Ross began her career designing jewelry using nontraditional metals and innovative techniques.By the time she was 28, in 1983, she had her work in the permanent collections of 12 museums — including the Smithsonian in Washington DC, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Montreal Visual Arts Center — and was the recipient of a De Beers Diamonds International Award.After the 12th museum, her excitement eventually faded.And then I was like, 'Oh my God, if this is what that is, then I'm so glad I understand that now,'" she said.With her ego's craving satisfied, she could then focus on contributing her talents to teams and taking joy in creating things with others, she explained, which in turn brought more satisfaction.Never live according to 5-year plansRoss said she would be incapable of predicting five years ago that she would be heading up a secret Google project, and she prefers it that way.It was actually her early and unexpected success as a designer in her 20s that allowed her to come to the Zen-like realization that "there isn't an end game."I think the ideal career path idea will not get you to the right place," she explained."The idea of tapping into who you are, the essence, will.NOW WATCH: 'Shark Tank' star Daymond John reveals the advantages of being brokeLoading video...
It's a sign that a growing number of PC users are realizing they don't need to spend a thousand bucks or more on a laptop, especially when they're buying a new smartphone every other year.Right now, Chromebooks are essentially just the Chrome web browser running on a laptop.While they have some offline capabilities, you're still mostly limited to what's possible on the web, which is fine for a lot of tasks, but not ideal when you want to work offline or use certain programs.Android apps mean a lot for Chromebooks.It's not just about playing Candy Crush; it opens up a whole new suite of apps to Chromebook users for the first time like Microsoft Office, Photoshop, and better, more capable versions of web apps like Slack or Spotify.But we quickly learned that cheap computers that are just capable enough can draw in a lot of buyers.Access to Android apps will quell any doubts about what a Chromebook can do, and I bet we're about to go through a fundamental shift in the way a lot of people use PCs because of it.Read the original article on Tech Insider.More from Tech Insider:Researchers created a way to print jewelry right on your bodyThere s a way to watch Game of Thrones 3 minutes sooner than everyone elseBMW's new throwback concept car is incredibly stunningA sleep scientist shares 11 easy ways to get a restful night's sleepChromebooks are about to take over and Apple and Microsoft should be worriedNOW WATCH: Chrome has a ton of hidden features — here s how to find and enable themLoading video...

Before she joined Google in 2014 to work as head of its secretive wearables division, Ivy Ross worked at companies as varied as toy giant Mattel and clothing conglomerate Gap, Inc.And before that, Ross was a jewelry designer whose work was placed in the permanent collections of some of the world's foremost museums.It was her unorthodox path, though, that has taught her fundamental truths about setting your career path, she told new graduates in a commencement address at the Fashion Institute of Technology last Thursday.We spoke with about her speech's main points after she gave it.Ross explained that her résumé may look eclectic, but the thread running through it is that each job she took allowed her to to be true to her identity as a creator, and to simultaneously offer and extract value.Before taking a new job, she asked herself two questions: "What am I going to learn?""These two questions allow anyone to avoid what Ross considers to be the traps of five-year plans, which she believes are especially troublesome for 20-somethings beginning their careers.After she achieved an unexpected level of success with her jewelry in her 20s, she realized that the joy that comes with your ego's satisfaction is fleeting, and that "there isn't an end game," she said."Five years ago, Ross said, she never could have predicted that she'd be heading up the secret Project Aura at Google, but her two questions have allowed her to be both flexible and true to herself."I think the ideal career path idea will not get you to the right place," she explained."The idea of tapping into who you are, the essence, will.NOW WATCH: A world champion public speaker gave us his top 3 presentation tipsLoading video...
Conventional wisdom among the experts states that the Internet of Things IoT is the next great technological revolution, one the likes of which we haven t seen since the internet itself was first introduced.There s a great deal of excitement surrounding the IoT, and many businesses both big and small are trying to get out ahead of the trend.We ve already seen wearable fitness devices gain traction, and smart home appliances aren t far behind.All signs point to the Internet of Things exploding onto the market in a wide variety of ways.Considering the estimates that there will be tens of billions of web-connected devices by the next decade, the IoT is about as close to a thing to being an inevitability, right?Maybe not.For all the positivity surrounding IoT predictions, the Internet of Things is far from a sure thing.In fact, it could just as well die before ever getting a real chance among consumers.Related Article: The Shocking Truth: Why Every Company Is a Technology CompanyBig Data DependenceOf course, the very idea that the IoT could end up failing sounds like a fantastical notion.The big question is, will that actually be the case?Wary ConsumersIt s no secret that consumers have become much more wary about privacy and security issues involving the Internet in the past few years.If that fear is present for our usual web activities, it s only expected to grow as the Internet of Things expands.Just think of all the devices that are or could be part of the IoT: jewelry, toasters, clothing, cars, traffic lights, thermostats, washing machines, and so much more.Now imagine every single one of those devices is collecting data on the user.Related Article: Is Silicon Valley Still the World's Top Technology Hub?Businesses may use that data for perfectly practical and sensible reasons, but how comfortable will consumers be knowing potentially sensitive information will be in the hands of faceless companies?But it s important to continue to view it as anything but a guaranteed success.

But as these guys show in the video, there s a significant amount of platinum on the curbside just waiting to be collected and extracted.Of course, mining it will take a bit of sweeping and a lot of chemistry.Basic math tells us that this wastage adds up over time, particularly along high volume stretches of road such as highways.After putting it through a number of tests and chemical processes, the two were able to confirm that you can find platinum by the side of the road, and all that seemingly useless dirt actually contains some very valuable ore.Platinum, which is used in everything from catalytic converters and lab equipment through to thermometers and jewelry, is one of the rarer elements in the Earth s crust.Only a few hundred tons are produced annually, making it an major precious metal commodity.
