In addition to these advanced technologies, design practice is also an important point.

Digital Darwinism is, a period in which human evolution and technological advancements are too fast for business organizations to be able to adapt to them. In addition to this, the habits, behaviors, and expectations of human beings keep on changing and it is up to organizations to be able to handle these changes. Designers also need to understand Darwinism and understand its importance. Design refers to the designer’s targeted and planned technical creation and creative activities. The task of design is not only to serve life and business, but also to accompany artistic creation. The birth of a good product is based on user needs to design. The needs of new consumers are not unchanging, and they are changing with the Times. This coincides with the idea of digital Darwinism. Therefore, design practice should be based on the needs of the current user and the competitive environment. If a designer cannot design such a competitive product, it will be eliminated.

Because of the changing times, the design has been completely different. First, to create innovative products and hot style in this era, it is necessary to recognize the changes in the era. The era is a change with at least four spans: from the agrarian age to the industrial age, from the information age to the intelligent age; In the process of change, each change of time makes a huge difference. Now is the beginning of the transition from the industrial age to the information age. In the industrial era, people talked about the product more as a function of the carrier hardware; It comes from the standardization, scale and low cost of the industrial age. All the conditions are derived from the allocation of resources in the industrial age. Therefore, it can be said that in today’s industrial era, products are more about expressing functions to one person. This is our inherent understanding of the product. But in today’s information age, data age, it’s not focusing on functional gadgets; Because functional gadgets are now as common as the rice we eat every day, what people need to buy more is a social function.

The demand for products has changed, new design disciplines have also emerged. For instance, In the 1970s, with the advent of personal computers, computers began to face ordinary consumers. How to design human-computer interface from the perspective of ordinary consumers was put on the agenda, and then interaction, as a new discipline, blossomed in the United States. This is an example. Traditional design cannot meet people’s changing needs and the external environment at that time, so interaction design is born. When it became popular, some traditional and backward majors began to face crisis.

Even in the same era, user’s needs and external environment may change greatly in a few years. In China, Interaction design has been on the rise since 2009. In fact, Interaction design is not a new word. It has existed in American for decades. Why did 2009 suddenly catch on? Because of the mobile Internet. Because in 2009, when China began to have 3G, mobile phones were able to get online quickly. Before this, the mobile Internet is very slow, traffic costs are very high, Chinese mainly access the Internet on the computer. Now, the new change from 2017 to 2018 is service design. After nearly 10 years of development, the solidification of user cognitive form leads to less space for interaction design to extend. The design on the Internet is already saturated, and service design can make the user experience outside the Internet more perfect. So, service design has become a hot spot in China. This phenomenon is the result of the increasingly rapid information age. To gain more advantages in the competition, design is becoming more and more important. Many companies use it as a successful key. The company’s managers and designers know that if you don’t make progress, you will be eliminated. It’s also an example of how digital Darwin influenced design.

For digital Darwinism, some companies simply think that technology can make a difference, but what they really need to understand is why people change, and why their customers and employees change. At this point, design needs to show its role. The design that meets the user demand of digital times, prospective concept, just can be competitive product.

Look for these VISUAL ELEMENTS: visual tools an artist has to make a work of art
1.  Line:  Lines can show outline, imply a third dimension, show direction or movement
2.  Shape and Mass:  Shape refers to 2 dimensions, for instance, a square.  Mass refers to 3 dimensions, for instance, a cube. 
3.  Light:  Light reveals form.  Where is the light source?  What is the range of values, from light to dark, in the art you are reviewing? 
4.  Color:  How does the artist use color in the art object you are reviewing?  Is it the primary colors only?  Is it emotionally soothing or jarring? 
5.  Texture and pattern:   Does the art object you are viewing have actual texture, could you feel it?  Or does it have implied texture, suggesting that it is smooth or rough?  Does it have an overall pattern on the surface?
6.  Space:  If your object is architectural or sculptural, it will have 3 dimensional space.  Try to describe the space.  If your object is two dimensional, how does the artist imply space, for example, through linear perspective, overlapping of objects, smaller or larger objects, or atmospheric perspective?
7.  Time and motion:  Does the art object imply time, for instance, a sunset, or motion, for instance, a sculpture that moves?
Look for these PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN:  the organization of the composition or design of the art work
1.  Unity and Variety:  Unity is a sense of oneness in the art.  Variety maintains interest in art
2.  Balance:  Symmetrical balance occurs when both sides of the art object are similar in size or shape.  Asymmetrical balance occurs when the two sides are quite different in the appearance of the objects in the art.
3.  Emphasis and Subordination:  How does the artist draw your eye to the center of attention of the art object?  How does the artist make the rest of the painting subordinate to the center of interest?
4.  Scale and Proportion:  Scale means size in relation to a standard or “normal” size.  Proportion refers to size relationships between parts of a whole, or between two or more items perceived as a unit.  Sometimes these are deliberately incorrect, as in Hierarchal Scale in the art of antiquity.
5.  Rhythm or repetition:  The repeated use of a color, shape or line to create expression

Venue: Twickenham Date: 10 November Kick-off: 15:00 GMT

Watch Rugby 2018 Live Streaming Free 

Coverage: Radio commentary on BBC Radio 5 live (build-up from 14:30) and  live text commentary on BBC Sport website. Highlights on BBC Two at  19:30 GMT.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen says England’s New Zealand-born flanker  Brad Shields will find it “tough” playing against his native country on  Saturday.

Shields played for New Zealand Under-20s but ended his hopes of a  senior cap when he opted to play for England, who he qualifies for  through his parents.

“He is going to be going out facing the haka, facing a team that he has always wanted to play for,” said Hansen.

“It will tug at his heartstrings, you wouldn’t be human if it didn’t.”

Shields, who won the IRB Junior World Championships in 2011 with New  Zealand’s age-grade team, said earlier this week that “there are going  to be some emotions, there is no hiding from that”.

Hansen found going up against his native New Zealand “pretty raw”  when he worked as Wales coach between 2002 and 2004, but backed Shields  to keep his emotions in check.

“I think he’ll find it tough, but he is a quality man and a good rugby player so he will deal with it in his own way,” he added

[BOXING-FREE]**Usyk Vs Bellew Full Fight Live Streaming & UK TV Channel

Week after week, we’re getting more hyped about the Virginia Cavaliers football team. It took some time, as the early season schedule didn’t really give the team a chance to exceed expectations. But this team is getting better with experience, and they’re playing some outstanding football right now. On top of that, they’re fun to watch. The offense is fun, with run-pass-options and enough deep passes to keep the defense honest. The defense is fun with talented CBs playing a lot of man coverage and talented OLBs gunning for the QB.

Virginia is ranked for the first time since 2011, and has a real shot at winning the ACC Coastal Division. Sure, that doesn’t mean much considering how poor the division is. Even so, getting a chance to play in the ACC Championship Game would be a major accomplishment for a team that was picked dead last in the conference by the media in the pre-season.

This week, No. 23 Virginia takes on the Pitt Panthers in a Friday primetime game. Virginia played two Friday night games last season as they went to Boise State and hosted Virginia Tech. The weather prediction is for rain at kickoff, though that may taper off as the game continues.

The game takes place at Scott Stadium, kickoff time is 7:30 Eastern on Friday night. It will be televised by ESPN2. Let’s get on to the matchups.

Virginia on Offense

As I discussed last week, Virginia’s offense had fallen in the national ranks over the past few weeks, but it wasn’t really because the offense was bad, it was because they were facing better defenses. UNC’s defense isn’t great, and Virginia gashed them for 425 yards.

That was just the third most yards the Hoos have had this season, but it was the first time that Virginia has had over 200 yards rushing and 200 yards passing in a game since 2014. It was also the most yards Virginia has had against an ACC foe since facing Duke in 2015.

After last week, UNC’s defense ranks 82nd in the S&P ratings. Pitt’s ranks 98th. The Panthers are coming off a 54-45 win over Duke. Duke had 619 total yards in a game that was at Pitt. At home the previous week against Virginia, that same Duke offense had just 320 yards. Yeah, the Pitt defense isn’t very good. They’ve played in a few shootouts, which doesn’t help, but they’ve also been blown out a couple of times.

They rank 93rd nationally in pass defense and in pass efficiency defense, which is bad. They also rank 97th in rush defense, which is worse. The Panthers run a standard 4-3 defense. They call the weak-side LB “Money” and the strong-side LB “Star”. This is not a young or inexperienced defense. They ranked 75th in defensive S&P last year, so you’d expect them to improve after that, but they have gone the other way.

They aren’t bad at generating QB pressure, tied (with Virginia, among others) for 67th nationally in sacks. They aren’t bad at generating turnovers either, tied for 50th (Virginia is just one TO ahead of them). Where they really struggle is getting off the field. They rank 117th in 3rd down defense, giving up 47% conversions. That’s a scary proposition against Virginia, who rank 12th nationally in 3rd down conversions, also at 47%. If Virginia converts 47% of their 3rd downs, there’s a good chance that they end up on top.

It doesn’t help that Pitt has lost their starting MLB, Quintin Wirginis, for the season. Then again, it’s not like they were crushing it before he was injured. He was the leading tackler, and despite missing two games, is still second. The leading tackler now is FS Damar Hamlin. Wirginis is also second in sacks and

E-commerce with wordpress

Make a wordpress website 

see details at instruction 

PROJECT: E-commerce with WordPress (Virtual Storefront)

PROJECT: E-commerce with WordPress (Virtual Storefront)

This project is worth 100 points and 20% of your final grade. It is estimated to require at least 6 – 8 hours of working time.

ADVANCED WORDPRESS

In the last project, we became familiar with WordPress as a content management system. We selected themes, applied color schemes, created pages, and changed the way our sites behaved, mostly using the WordPress Dashboard. Conveniently, wordpress.com provided free and easy hosting for our project sites. For our final project, we need to delve a bit further into the inner workings of WordPress. We’ll be using a free web hosting service (provided by the Department of Advertising + Public Relations) to install and run our own version of WordPress, and then we will use some plugins to further customize functionality. We discussed these options briefly in introducing the midterm project.

The major difference between using wordpress.com and using our own web host is that wordpress.com places restrictions on using some features of WordPress, like plugins and custom stylesheets. When we use our own hosting service, we have access to the full menu of WordPress features. Specifically, we will be using the WooCommerce plugin to manage our websites’ shopping cart capabilities.

ABSTRACT

In this project, you and up to two classmates will build a small-scale e-commerce website for a fictitious business using WordPress. In any case of working in teams, only one version of the project is necessary. (All group members contribute to one project on one hosting account.) Your fictitious business must have a name, and can serve any purpose or sell any real or fictional product you wish. You are encouraged to be creative and implement an overarching design theme in your virtual storefront. Usually, this type of site would include 5 main elements:

• An attractive and compelling design
• Information about the business
• A clear catalog of available products and/or services • A shopping cart/checkout area
• A way to contact the business

Your e-commerce website will need at least 5 pages (you may modify page names):

· Homepage (containing your business’ name/logo and other content of your choosing) 


· About Us (containing a short paragraph describing your business and the products or 
services it offers – a mission statement perhaps) 


· Products/Services (containing a well-executed catalogue of products or services available 
for purchase) 


· Checkout (containing your customers’ shopping cart information) 


· Contact Us (containing a form by which to contact your business online) 


PROJECT PROCEDURE

This procedure is not intended as a step-by-step guide. It is provided as-is. You are expected to extrapolate upon your knowledge to complete some steps. You may of course feel free to ask via email, D2L, or office hours any questions you may have.

Note : if you are working with a group, only one group member should complete step 1.

1. Determine whether you will work alone or with a group. If the latter, you will need to know the names and email addresses of your fellow group members. You will also need to know the desired name of your fictitious business for this step. ONE member of the group: Visit https://goo.gl/forms/Rrj6ZPtq9bKixH0d2 and complete the form. 


2. After you complete the form, your WordPress hosting account will be set up within 24 hoursYou and your group members will receive an email with details about the account and how to access it. Follow the instructions in the email to get to your WordPress Dashboard. 


3. From here, you should be familiar with the WordPress Dashboard. Use the settings under “Appearance” to customize the look and feel of your site, as in the previous project. You can feel free to use WordPress’ free themes and widgets, or your own custom styles.
Remember that your site should offer an attractive and compelling design. You are encouraged to use a theme that is optimized for WooCommerce, which is our e-commerce plugin. (Hint: https://goo.gl/5Gq0yM) 


4. Use the WordPress Dashboard to create your homepage, “About Us” page, and your “Contact Us” page.

1. A note on the “Contact Us” page: Our new installation of WordPress will not contain the convenient contact form creator that we used in our previous project. To include a contact form, download, install, and activate (see step 6.1 for how) WordPress’ Contact Form plugin from https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-plugin/. 


2. You should see a new option called “BWS Panel” appear in the left-side menu in your WordPress Dashboard. Go to BWS Panel > Contact Form. 


3. To use the form: Open your Contact page for editing in the Dashboard. A new button, “Add BWS Shortcode” should be present near the formatting options above the main content area. Click the button to paste the shortcode onto your page. This bit of shortcode acts as a placeholder (like the forms and galleries from the previous project), and will display your form on the page in the browser. 


5. Download the WooCommerce plugin from https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce/, or by searching for “WooCommerce” under Plugins > Add New. 


6. Use the WordPress Dashboard to install and activate your new plugin.

1. If you downloaded the plugin from wordpress.org: Plugins > Add New > Upload; choose 
the WooCommerce .zip file you just downloaded. Click “Install Now,” then “Activate Plugin.” 


2. If you chose to find the plugin by searching from the Dashboard:

1. When you find WooCommerce in your search (it should have a purple/white icon that says “woo” and be first in line when you search for WooCommerce), click the button that says “Install Now.” 

2. When the installation is complete, the Install Now button is replaced with a button that says “Activate.” Click Activate. 


3. Optionally, follow the steps in the WooCommerce setup to apply some basic settings to your storefront. You can always return to this or change these settings later.
1. A note on Payment options: for now, the easiest way to set up payments is to

choose the option for “Cash on Delivery” during the WooCommerce setup. Setting up other methods requires PayPal or bank accounts via other websites (more on this later).

7. You should notice two new options in the left-side menu in your WordPress Dashboard: WooCommerce and Products. You can use the Products menu to add products to your store, manage prices and sales, categorize your products, etc. Add at least 10 products to your virtual storefront. You should include product images where applicable. 


8. Periodically, visit your website outside the Dashboard to see what it looks like (from the black menu bar at the top of the Dashboard, mouseover the name of your website in the left corner, then select “Visit Site” – you may wish to do this in a new tab so that you can easily switch back to the Dashboard and make changes) 


1. If your site or certain parts of it are looking rough, you may need to select a different

theme.

9. Optionally, use Appearance > Widgets to clean up your website’s Widget Area. By default, 
it sometimes includes a lot of features that can clutter the look of your site or get in the way of other design elements. It’s safe to remove things like “Recent posts,” “Recent comments,” “Archives,” and “Categories.” Generally, it’s handy for your site to have a search feature. The “meta” options provide you the link to log into the Dashboard from your website – also handy to keep around. 


10. Optionally, use Appearance > Menus to create a customized version of your site’s menu. Background info: WordPress will usually create a default menu based on your existing pages, which it will display in your theme’s menu location. If you create a custom menu, in most themes you should set your new menu as the “primary menu.” It will then replace the original default version on your website. 


1. Note: Your website must NOT use a “hamburger menu” by default when it is being displayed on a non-mobile screen (Figure 1, below). Some themes use this form of collapsible menu by default at all screen sizes. Collapsing hamburger menus should only be used when your website is being displayed on a mobile-sized screen. On larger screens, they are less intuitive and have the effect of “hiding” your navigation menu from visitors, making it more difficult to browse your website. If your website is using a hamburger menu at larger screen sizes, you must either figure out a way to disable this behavior (some themes have the option), or you must select a different theme.

11. Social Media Integration

1. For this aspect of the project, you may choose to use Facebook OR Twitter. You may 
incorporate both, but this is not necessary. In both cases, the relevant plugin pages 
contain FAQ, troubleshooting, and screenshots detailing how to use them in WordPress. 


2. Facebook

1. Log into Facebook and create a Facebook Page for your fictitious business. It’s an easy, quick form to fill out. You should see the “Pages” in the left-hand menu near the top of your newsfeed page. If you go to this page, you’ll see a “Create Page” button. 


2. Add at least one photo and make at least one post on your new Page. 


3. Download and install the Simple Facebook Plugin from https://wordpress.org/ 
plugins/simple-facebook-plugin/ 


4. Use Appearance > Widgets to add the SFP widget to your website’s widget area (so it will display on all pages). Alternatively, you may use the [sfp-page-plugin] shortcode to include the widget in one specific location on a page of your site. 


3. Twitter

1. Think of a relevant and simple hashtag to use for your fictitious business. 


2. Ask group members, friends, and classmates to generate a few tweets using your 
hashtag – think of it as a PR stunt for your business! Alternatively or in addition, you may create a Twitter profile for your business and simply include the feed from this profile in your “Sources.” (see below) 


3. Download and install the Twitter plugin from https://wordpress.org/plugins/twitter- tweets/ 


4. Use Appearance > Widgets to add the Twitter Tweets widget to your website’s widget area. Adjust the appearance of the widget to fit your site’s design. 


12. Continue to adjust and improve your site’s appearance based on what you learned in the previous project. Remove the “blog” and set a static Home page (unless a blogroll would be conducive to your business). Order your pages appropriately. You can use http:// quirktools.com/screenfly/ to see how your website will look on different devices and screen sizes. 


13. Polish the look and feel of your site and prepare to receive constructive feedback from peers at the December 4, 2018 – 6:00 PM meeting. Your project must be finished and you must present it at the meeting in order to receive credit. You then have the remainder of the week to make changes and adjustments based on feedback received at the meeting. Your project will be due for submission at midnight on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 11:59pm.
