Tariffs and Trade Wars
One of the key ingredients to maintaining a positive global marketplace is collegial trade between countries. Many partnerships are strong and create a win-win situation for all concerned parties. But, there are still many countries who cannot come to an agreement about the ratio of imports to exports between the nations. These disagreements can escalate into imposed tariffs and the beginnings of a trade war. So why should we be concerned about tariffs and trade wars? Here's what you need to know.
 
Content Insider #588 - VR4
Want to get into movies? Work hard, work long and have just a little bit of luck. Or if you were thinking of something a little easier, little faster; catch one of the growing library of really good VR films - short or long - and experience it up close and personal, very personal. If you want to produce your own VR film well the good cameras are still "a little" expensive, Nvidia's eye-popping gen 8 card makes it easier and better, and if you want to push the envelope see how you look as a hologram. VR/AR/MR are coming together as an exciting option to 4K/8K/HDR films. Choices...choices...choices
 
Industrial Air Pollution Clean-Up Is On Its Way In 2018
Since 1955, the United States government has recognized the need for legislation to clean up air pollution. Subsequent revisions to the initial legislation strengthened the laws regarding allowable amounts of car emissions, factory smog, and other sources of air pollution. Now, in 2018, it isn't just legislation and governments fighting air pollution. Private inventors, corporations, and other organizations are harnessing the technology that can aid in cleaning our air all over the world, along with recognizing that some advances in technology are creating more air pollution and combating it with air filter and filtration systems, dust collectors, industrial vacuums, industrial blowers, air compressors, vacuum pumps and many other products.

Pending China Tariffs Having A Chilling Effect On Spot Pe Prices On Resins For Plastic Molding Manufacturers And Companies
Plastic processes differ greatly in both the way they form plastic products and in the shape and structural integrity of the products they manufacture. Plastic molding processes vary greatly in cost. High end plastic molding processes, such as rotational molding and injection molding, provide precision three dimensional plastic parts with structural integrity and impact resistance few other processes or materials can provide. On the other end of the spectrum, blow molding and dip molding processes offer very affordable options for long runs and mass production of containers and household commodity items. A wide range of plastic materials are molded through these processes, although some processes are more effective with certain polymers than others.

2D vs 3D Animation - Which Should You Choose?
There are quite a few elements to consider when tackling a video project for marketing and advertising purposes. A video project requires a script, voiceover, character development, themes and movement. Whether it's for a game, marketing or entertainment, animation is a great and creative way to bring a story to life. While animation is a top choice for video development, it requires a few extra elements to consider, such as deciding between 2D and 3D animation. For those who don't have much video production experience, it can be difficult to decipher which animation method will yield better results. But believe it or not, there's a time and a place for each one.
 
3 Reasons Why You Need to Embrace AR in Your Workflow
The year 2017 marked a new development in my work as the mobile team manager at Vectorworks, Inc. - one that perfectly aligned with a new trend in the AEC industries. Apple just introduced its ARKit to complement the new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X models. This platform allowed developers to create Augmented Reality (AR) applications that integrated live images from a device's camera with dynamic 3D models developed by the user.
 
How Artificial Intelligence Is Projected To Influence The Automotive Industry
Artificial intelligence and data science are two main technologies that forms the processes of the automotive. Since 2017, Udacity selected a group of 18 talented engineers (out of hundreds of applicants) to form the Self-Racing Cars team Udacity offer the first self-driving Nanodegree program. The program was Built in partnership with Uber, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Nvidia. After a huge success, Udacity introduced another Nanodegree program for the beginners. At last, MIT and university introduced their courses in the automotive industry.
 
Bogdan Darev, Filmmaker and VR Pioneer
It is quite baffling that the film industry continues to stubbornly offer super hero and fantasy entertainment which continue to promote division and resolution of conflict by violence. The industry fails to capitalize on cinema's inherent gift to teach, nurture and unite. I say all of this because I passionately feel that the emergence of VR allows for us to explore new uncharted territories where greed has not yet corrupted and bankrupted the spirit of innovation and expression.
 
Critical Driver Shortage Affecting U.S. Trucking Industry
If you're in the trucking industry, you know you have a problem. You don't have enough drivers, trucks cost a lot and training is even worse when you consider the accidents you could have prevented or when you have trucks against the fence and no driver to carry the freight. Well, what about the solution you might say? There is one, if we are willing to get into the modern era. The trucking industry doesn't have enough drivers and we will need to hire nearly 900,000 new operators over the next decade just to maintain the current workforce. Well, if I was trying to attract new drivers, I would look to the driver group under 21 years of age - I can attract them by using what they are used to using, simulation and virtual reality (VR).

Technology Trends Expected to Revolutionize the Medical Industry by 2020
Each century throughout human history has brought significant advancement in the medical industry. For example, life expectancy in the past century has extended by approximately 25 years. The shift is attributed to the development of the cardiac pacemaker, smallpox eradication, and penicillin. Technology could enable researchers to carry out partial human brain transplant, repair the cardiovascular system, and use genetic engineering to alter the human DNA. In the future, advancements in research, computer technology, and design will change how we access health care. For example, computer technology will allow for health insurance comparison and reduce doctor visits significantly. Here are some of the tech advancements that will revolutionize healthcare by 2020.
