If you are actively curating content as a business strategy, you are sitting on a great source of guidance to help you pick good topics. Of course you’ll monitor success of your own content over time. But there’s more. You should keep tabs on a wider range of content to expand your purview.
A well-known computer scientist parachuted from a balloon near the top of the stratosphere on Friday, falling faster than the speed of sound and breaking the world altitude record set just two years ago.
The jump was made by Alan Eustace, 57, a senior vice president at Google. At dawn he was lifted by a balloon filled with 35,000 cubic feet of helium, from an abandoned runway at the airport here.
For a little over two hours, the balloon ascended at speeds up to 1,600 feet per minute to an altitude of 135,908 feet, more than 25 miles. Mr. Eustace dangled underneath in a specially designed spacesuit with an elaborate life-support system. He returned to earth just 15 minutes after starting his fall.
“It was amazing,” he said. “It was beautiful. You could see the darkness of space and you could see the layers of atmosphere, which I had never seen before.”
Mr. Eustace cut himself loose from the balloon with the aid of a small explosive device and plummeted toward the earth at a speeds that peaked at more than 800 miles per hour, setting off a small sonic boom heard by observers on the ground.

Gartner released last week its latest Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies. Last year, big data reigned supreme, at what Gartner calls the “peak of inflated expectations.” But now big data has moved down the “trough of disillusionment,” replaced by the Internet of Things at the top of the hype cycle.

Search marketers have always understood and appreciated the incredible ranking power behind social media properties. Sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter always had an impressive ability to rank highly in Google for extremely competitive terms due to their strong domain authority.
But while it is great to capture that high ranking position, it often presented a challenge when it came to actually driving that traffic back to the brand site. It was either a challenge due to the ability to place prominent gateway links on the social property pages itself, or there was really no purpose or logical reason to send the user to an additional page.
Take YouTube, for example. The video site is a great property for capturing “how to” and instructional queries; however, the only way to get the viewer to your brand site is via an overlay on the video or a link inside the description. Furthermore, the searcher’s actual query – e.g. “how to remove grass stains” — is often already answered in the video itself, thus eliminating the need for further research (or a visit to the website).
VIDEOIsrael and its supporters are always keen to assert two points to the international community when defending the reputation of the Zionist state. First, they like to boast that it is the only democracy in the Middle East.
To my non-Australian followers I recommend this heart wrenching documentaryabout what is perceived to be “the lucky country”. It is a sobering look at the treatment towards our nations First People, and the ongoing mistreatment that occurs today. Despite having an awareness of these issues having grown up in the Northern Territory, a place where Aboriginal people are segregated in gated communities in Darwin, I still felt a great sense of shame and sadness being confronted with these images and stories of those within our community being controlled by racist policies of successive and present Governments.
