The Grammarphobia Blog: Is “to” part of the infinitive?

The Grammarphobia Blog: Is “to” part of the infinitive? | advanced education and social media | Scoop.it
No, to isn't part of the infinitive, and it doesn't accompany every infinitive.

'Matrix'-style effortless learning? Vision scientists demonstrate innovative learning method | advanced education and social media | Scoop.it
It may be possible to use brain technology to learn to play a piano, reduce mental stress or hit a curve ball with little or no conscious effort, new research suggests. It's the kind of thing seen in Hollywood's "Matrix" franchise.

Sign of empathy: Bonobos comfort friends in distress

Sign of empathy: Bonobos comfort friends in distress | advanced education and social media | Scoop.it

Bonobos display consolation behavior, a sign of sensitivity to the emotions of others and the ability to take the perspective of another.

 

Comforting a friend or relative in distress may be a more hard-wired behavior than previously thought, according to a new study of bonobos, which are great apes known for their empathy and close relation to humans and chimpanzees. This provides key evolutionary insight into how critical social skills may develop in humans. The results were published by the journal PLOS One.

 

Researchers from the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Emory University, observed juvenile bonobos at the Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary in the Democratic Republic of Congo engaging in consolation behavior more than their adult counterparts. Juvenile bonobos (3 to 7 years old) are equivalent in age to preschool or elementary school-aged children.

Bonobos are not robotic - but then, they don´t use social media!

The Scoop On Content Curation & Scoop.It | advanced education and social media | Scoop.it

Once Snip.It pulled the plug on the content curation site, thereby pulling the rug out from under the feet of content curators like myself, I began speaking with the fine folks at Scoop.It.

Hi Robin. I know you have infinite curiosity which is a great quality for curators ;-) Just like some other successful companies in our space (HootSuite, SlideShare...), there are multiple reasons for us not to communicate on that in spite of having traction and success. To give you more insights, I would actually argue that growth rates on these numbers are actually more important than the absolute values themselves. Our traffic, usage and revenue are all growing at the same pace and have done x5 in 1 year. More importantly, in spite of being a significant scale with now 6m+ monthly uniques and close to 400,000 professionals and businesses with a Scoop.it account, it doesn't give any signs of slowing down (while we have many opportunities to catch and improvements to make). And without trying to pick on them but just to give a sense of perspective, we're about 20x the size snip.it had before they shut down. This is not to say we'll rest on our laurels: we're committed to make constant improvements to serve our community better and go much further so stay tuned for more updates!

Thanks Guillaume for your kind feedback.

Interesting - scoop.it has been poised as an alternative to snip.it.
