Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world. Director Pete Docter said they wanted the film to remain complex and emotional while making sense with the foreign audience's culture. Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', โ€œWe learned that some of our content wouldnโ€™t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, โ€˜Whatโ€™s gross to you?โ€™ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.โ€ In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,โ€œWe offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that theyโ€™d be hockey fans.โ€ Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying โ€˜itโ€™s a shortcut.โ€™ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.โ€ Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?

The Best Way To Live: Tiny Houses
Tiny Houses have become the latest craze for younger people looking to spend most of their time outside, enjoying nature. Buying a house is expensive and can take up so much space on land you would rather use to garden, farm, hunt, or just enjoy as natural as it comes. Which is why tiny houses are becoming HUGE (see what I did there). With prices usually around $40,00 for an entire (sometimes) portable house, couples or solo land owners are finding it much easier to be able to afford an actual place of their own. And yes they can be portable! The main thing you pay for with your tiny house is land, so when you want to head out just hitch up your house, by another plot of land, and plop yourself down. Its like having an RV but way more....homey. Tiny Houses are defined as livable houses under 400 sqft Small Houses are defined as livable houses under 1000 soft Both are pretty tiny, but when done right can be amazing! Check out these pictures of Tiny Houses and try not to head straight to the bank! Here is a tiny house that has some style! The point of these houses are to embrace being in the outdoors which is why some houses have outside add ons. This house is doing things right with an added hot tub! Small and Tiny Houses can look amazing and way more spacious with huge windows. These windows also help you still connect with nature, even when you are indoors. Told you some houses can be portable! Not feeling where you live anymore? Just hook your house up to a truck and you can be across the country in a day. With tiny houses you can get creative with the design. Some even look like a hobbits houses which is really cool! Not all tiny houses need to be made out of wood! There are a ton of modern tiny houses that are perfect for a couple that needs minimal space! On the inside the main goal is to go up! Most things are stacked so that there is ample room but still an uncluttered space. The bed is usually a loft which helps leave tons of room for the downstairs living area. Proof that tall people can still have tiny houses! This man is pretty tall yet looks completely comfortable in his little house. Tiny and small houses aren't for everyone. They can get cramped, especially when its time to cook dinner, but for those outdoorsy people who hate being stuck indoors, tiny houses offer the perfect solution. Why waste money on a house you don't care about, or force yourself to live in an apartment that is in a town or city? Tiny houses can give the nature lovers a place of their own to live, connect with nature, and limit their carbon footprint. And that is AWESOME. Check out this very informative and funny video about living in tiny homes and how it can and will save you time and stress in the long run!
Japan's New Temporary Tattoos Detect A Common Food Allergy.
Food allergies are no joke. As many of you might know, being allergic to foods like nuts, eggs, and wheat flour can cause a range of extremely dangerous symptoms, ranging from itching and nausea to even painful swelling of the throat and airways. Japan has been taking a pretty impressive proactive stance for early allergy detection - and the method they've employed to get the job done might really surprise you! These 'ukiyo-e'-inspired temporary tattoos have been specially created to indicate whether or not the wearer is allergic to soba. Soba, a staple noodle popularly enjoyed in the country, is made from buckwheat, the top food-related allergen among children in East Asia - with the strongest reactions resulting in anaphylactic shock. If the wearer is not allergic, the tattoo will remain a black-and-white design. If the wearer has an allergy, sudden red detailing will appear. And, differently from a traditional allergy test, this indication does not result in burning or itching skin. The tattoos are currently being used by the 230 Soba Street Promotion Association, a Hokkaido-based group of soba noodle restaurateurs along the region's popular foodie destination, Route 230. They hope that this kind of technology will catch on and encourage similar products to be made for other common food allergies. Would you rock one of these tattoos? Let me know in the comments below what you think of this story, and for more strange but true developments in the name of science, follow my Weird Science collection!
4 real estate technology trends that consumers demand this 2019
From virtual on-demand tours to automated marketing, here we tell you what your customers want to see and what they want to interact with. Buying a home at Blue world city can be a tedious process. Before the internet age, buyers contacted a real estate consultant, made an appointment to visit him, looked at the listing of houses, and made appointments to visit houses one by one. But with the advantages of digital tools, real estate businesses have seen significant impacts on traditional ways of running the business. Buyers and sellers can now view virtual home tours, access real estate advisers through apps, instant messaging or social media, and securely sign papers online, so the buying and selling process becomes more simple and transparent. Currently, the buying and selling process is not only easier and faster, but also the information is much more accessible than ever before. Now, no matter what role you play in the sale, these four technologies will play an important role. Mobile technology It is clear that mobile technology has had a significant impact on the way people search for homes to buy. The days when real estate advisers published their listings in the newspaper are behind us. Today's shoppers search for homes that are potential to buy from their smartphone at dinner time. Plus, they are better informed and demand a friendlier experience with better online search features and personalized alerts. You will also see continuous advances in learning machinery that will deliver better search results. Similar to user experiences on Google and Amazon, real estate sites seek not to be left behind by making recommendations that go beyond the number of rooms or the price range (similar to matching preferences used by Blue Group of Companies) . Mobile real estate technology will move from recommendations based on data entered on forms and websites, to image-recognizing software that uses text, or other fingerprints to recommend properties. On-demand virtual tours Today we live in a world where the interaction between the physical and the digital is increasing. The purchase of items online has been progressing from deliveries after two days to deliveries the same day of purchase or with the possibility of picking them up at a certain place. In addition, you can have some electronic devices, such as your refrigerator, order for you with the help of Alexa and Amazon, or through buttons that can be used to order detergent or cat food when you need it. With this level of access to on-demand services, there is no doubt that consumers will expect to see virtual on-demand tours in the real estate industry. Don't be surprised if you start to see an increase in virtual tour technology such as augmented reality, virtual reality, and drone-captured tours. Although virtual tours will not replace in-house samples of houses, it will help the buyer save time and better segment potential purchase options. Virtual reality and drone-guided tours give potential buyers a full 360-degree tour and provide the customer with a better sensory experience of the property that cannot be captured in images. While augmented reality offers views that can help the buyer see houses under construction and "walk" in them with their own home furnishings. Lately, a trend has come onto the market to help buyers enjoy instant home tours through apps that call the real estate consultant to a home on the market. We will also see more apps for smartphones that will offer 3D images of the interior of the houses, allowing potential buyers to customize the colors and furniture. Automation Marketing automation like scheduling of social media posts or automated email campaigns increases efficiency by decreasing the time it takes to distribute marketing content. However, this is only the beginning of what can be automated. Every day more and more tasks that require the human touch will be automated to give real estate consultants greater flexibility and efficiency. We will see that automation will continue to impact the real estate industry with software that will better search for the power of information gathering, giving real estate advisers the power to close deals faster and spend more time serving customer needs. Many of these technologies have embedded dashboards that show real-time performance metrics on both sides of the transaction. This not only means better customer service for the consumer, but also a better overall experience for all parties. More and more realtors are turning to automation to produce a pricing and valuation station rather than manually. Computer-generated pricing information offers a more scientific approach than the real estate advisor's instinct by bringing transparency to the transaction and speeding up the negotiation. Artificial intelligence The use of artificial intelligence, or applications that can mimic human learning and decision-making through data analysis, has been embedded in all industries that use the internet to interact with their consumers. The real estate industry is no exception. We first saw AI enter with chatbots who can have a conversation with visitors to a website to pre-qualify leads and answer frequently asked questions. Now, instead of working with a real estate consultant who has a list of multiple homes, sellers can search for companies that use artificial intelligence to analyze thousands of data that are used to make ads on social networks and websites aimed at consumers. who have been identified as potential buyers. These internet ads are sent en masse to individuals who appear to be potential buyers. When clicks hit ads, the algorithm decrypts matches between consumer profiles and then converts that information into new ads to search for new entries based on those patterns. Artificial intelligence can also help real estate advisers predict the closing price of a listing and estimate when it will close, helping to take the guesswork out of price. Predictive technology used in this way ensures a better marketing strategy and faster closure.
Mobile Phone Photography with Dima Gavrysh
If anyone tells you that a real photographer can't use a mobile phone camera to take pictures, tell them they are wrong. Any device that captures an image can be used in photography, and any of these devices can create (subjectively) beautiful imagery. Dima Gavrysh is a photographer who has mastered the use of his mobile phone camera in his work. Dima has been embedded with the US Army in Afghanistan documenting and creating projects such as Soldiers of Zerok and Inshallah (pictured). He approaches the subject matter of war with an outstanding ability to capture the tension and charge of the experience with an artist's eye. Dima has produced many compelling series involving this subject in collaboration with charitable organizations such as Doctors Without Borders. Dima's project Inshallah explores the romanticization of war that intertwines with his personal experiences growing up in Ukraine. Here is was Dima says about the project: "Inshallah (God willing in Arabic) is a project that explores the Soviet and American occupations of Afghanistan, and draws on my childhood fantasies that romanticize the military and intertwine with my past and present personal conflicts I create a dark fairytale filled with my fears and dreams, based on my fascination with the armyโ€™s strength and order, set on the front lines of what has become Americaโ€™s longest running war in history. Mesmerized by the complexity of the Afghan chaos, I strive to better comprehend my personal relationship to these wars: two empires, two mentalities, same battlefield, twelve years apart.."
