This 23-Year-Old Built and Sold His Startup While in School - Here’s How He Did It

This 23-Year-Old Built and Sold His Startup While in School - Here’s How He Did It | BeBetter | Scoop.it
From the moment Dan Shipper (on the left, above) stepped foot on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus, he knew he wanted to learn how to build a real software business with paying customers and steady revenue. He passed with flying colors last month when he both graduated from school and sold his company Firefly (the first company backed by Dorm Room Fund) to Pegasystems for multiple millions.
Shipper’s success didn’t take anyone by surprise. Targeted early as a technology wunderkind, he was receiving multiple job offers by his sophomore year. He chose to stay in school, he says, because he wasn’t done learning. Now, having seen his first company through an exit, he has a degree and perspective on what makes a real difference for young companies and entrepreneurs.
In this exclusive First Round Review interview, Shipper shares the three tactics that moved the needle the most for him and Firefly, and how beginning founders can get a head start on success.

Spostare una libreria iTunes e iPhoto su un disco esterno

Spostare una libreria iTunes e iPhoto su un disco esterno | BeBetter | Scoop.it

Musica e foto rappresentano una parte importante dell’esperienza multimediale degli utenti Mac. Per questo motivo, però, sono anche i due elementi che, con il passare del tempo, gravano maggiormente sullo spazio disponibile del proprio disco fisso. A maggior ragione, se si considera che i moderni smartphone e le moderne macchine fotografiche scattano foto con risoluzione sempre maggiore e, conseguentemente, con un peso sempre maggiore. Per questo motivo potrebbe essere utile trasferire la propria libreria foto e quella musicale su un disco fisso esterno, in modo da liberare spazio. Ecco come copiare libreria iTunes e iPhoto su dischi esterni in pochi e semplici passaggi.

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic | BeBetter | Scoop.it
As I’ve mentioned before—it is not only important for educators to encourage students to push the technological envelope, but it’s equally essential that we teach them to navigate the digital world in a responsible manner. But in order to do so, we must first become familiar with copyright rules and fair use guidelines ourselves—a task that can seem very daunting and frustrating at times. If you’ve ever used online materials for teaching and learning, then I’m sure you have wondered one or more of the following: Do I need permission to use this image? Can I share this video on my classroom web site? Would it be best for my me and/or my students to create my/their own media? Well, it may not answer all of your burning questions, but the copyright flowchart shown below will surely help with some of the confusion surrounding this very relevant and significant topic.

Sad statistics: 25 Alarming Global Warming Facts | BeBetter | Scoop.it
Global warming is among the most alarming environmental issues that the world faces today. This phenomenon does not simply involve the significant rise in the earth’s temperature but a lot more. The adverse effects of global warming have become more and more apparent since the dawn of the 20th century, with more hurricanes and tropical storms causing massive destruction in different areas around the world, more animal species losing their habitats and becoming extinct, and more people dying because of too much heat. Here are 25 alarming global warming statistics.

How A 'Bunch Of Commies' Are Forcing The Fortune 500 To Stop Destroying Rain Forests, Overfishing, And Burning Fossil Fuels

How A 'Bunch Of Commies' Are Forcing The Fortune 500 To Stop Destroying Rain Forests, Overfishing, And Burning Fossil Fuels | BeBetter | Scoop.it
Where once Greenpeace lobbied government to change policies, they have been far more effective in targeting major global companies such as Unilever, P&G, Kimberly-Clark, Mattel, Nike, McDonalds, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Nestle. They use 'market-based campaigning' - pick an area of concern, identify on-the ground producers who are contributing, follow the supply chain to a multinational corp with a widely known consumer product, suggest they address the issue, and when they do not, launch a multipronged media campaign with beloved animals and climb a building or two. Their catchy social media marketing can destroy years of work building a brand.

You steadily worry and reflect about what is the right path for you and for success?
False!
Don`t find THE path, find joy and fulfillment!

 

Life is not a business plan, a project, a strategy.
Don`t plan your life … live your life, your ideas, your passions.

 

Explore new worlds .. explore unknown activities, new leisure possibilities, new food for thought and new relationships ..


Don`t plan happiness … live happiness!

3 Ways to Deal with In-the-Moment Anxiety

3 Ways to Deal with In-the-Moment Anxiety | BeBetter | Scoop.it
You may have prepared for a stressful situation such as a job interview, an important meeting, or a presentation. But you're still likely to have some anxiety while you're in the situation. That's normal! Here are some things you can try.


Rate your anxiety and watch it ebb and flow. Anxiety is not an all–or–nothing condition; it exists on a continuum. When you're feeling anxious, rate your anxiety on a scale from 0 to 10, with 0 being completely calm and 10 being a state of severe anxiety. For example, say to yourself, “Oh, I'm at a 7 now. I think I'll take a few deep breaths and see what happens to my anxiety level.” After taking a few minutes to focus on your breathing, reassess your level. You'll likely find that your anxiety has decreased, even if only by a point or 2. Realizing that your anxiety level doesn't remain constant can reassure you that you won't remain in a high–anxiety state forever. Approach this task with an attitude of curiosity. Say to yourself, “I wonder what will happen to my anxiety level if I do this…”

In 2013/14, I only used novels in English class and even then only to provide time away from a screen.  Every other class and activity used digital resources and engaged technology to find, sort, contextualize, and share information.   This is a very interesting infographic.

Digital devices are re-shaping the classroom. I've seen some new tools in action.  As educators, we should learn how students are using these new tools and adjust our teaching appropriately.

Dian J Harrison, MSW's curator insight, July 8, 5:09 PM

This definitely speaks to the support that older students will need to be successful in online programs!  For some of these students, the technology learning curve will be steep but doable....... especially if they are used to reading a book in print!

“ What do 3 tons of garbage look like? If you are Angela Haseltine Pozzi, you turn this trash into sculptures that draw attention to the problem of plastic pollution. Unlike other artists that work with plastic beach debris, she doesn't cut everything up into tiny, beautiful pieces so you don't know where this plastic came from - you can see each piece of plastic for what it is - and you know that it was purchased by someone. A jelly fish made of discarded water bottles, a fish made of flip flops, coral made from styrofoam... you get the idea... Each one of us has a hand in creating the plastic pollution that affects every beach in the world.”
