Investors warned that the standing of one of the world’s biggest emerging markets in global indexes could be in jeopardy.
thetechedvocate.orgWhy Professors Shouldn’t Ban SmartphonesSpread the loveAs smartphones have become more common, educators have struggled with the question of what to do with smartphones in the classroom. For K-12 educators, the answer has been to ban smartphones from the classroom completely. College professors have also banned smartphones in increasing numbers. But now there’s some evidence to suggest that banning smartphones in the college classroom isn’t such a good idea.

brooklynstreetart.comPostcards from The Yok & Sheryo in India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia…A unique duo of autonomous Street Artists from different backgrounds and paths somehow have melded themselves into a traveling tornado of tags, throw ups, and theatrics in a style that is theirs alone. The Yok and Sheryo (Perth and Singapore) continue to compliment, push, and pull against and with each other stylistically with a healthy dose of competiveness, inquisition, mutual respect and love for the fantastic and funny. If you take yourself too seriously with this pair, you lose baby, and no fools are suffered. This is badass, serious fun and when combined with lust and wanderlust, it takes you around the world.

Now back in the US after a 10 month tour, lets see some of the new installations and walls that Sheryo and Yok made in their travels around Cambodia, India, Sri Lanka, China, Berlin, and Indonesia. Varuna's vessel (India) We worked with some rad Bollywood set builders and a local fisherman who donated his boat for the installation. We created the installation based off a local folklore story called Varuna & Makara about a Sea God riding a sea creature. The Yok & Sheryo. Varuna's Vessel. India.

After the after after party we managed to get this wall painted - Cambodian Paradise. The Yok & Sheryo. Cambodia. (photo © The Yok & Sheryo) The Yok & Sheryo. Cambodia.

Loved spending a month cruising around Sri Lanka in a tuk tuk looking for waves, says The Yok, and finding elephants, monkeys, turtles, lizards, dodging manic bus drivers, paying off cops. Amazing people, delicious food and a secret pirate village. The Yok & Sheryo. Sri Lanka. (photo © The Yok & Sheryo) The Yok & Sheryo. Sri Lanka. (photo © The Yok & Sheryo) The Yok & Sheryo.

The full artist list also included artist like Remi Rough, M-City, Eko Nugroho, Tarek Benaoum, Zevs, Speak Cryptic, and YZ. The Yok & Sheryo. Singapore. (photo © The Yok & Sheryo) The Yok & Sheryo.
