Etiquette - Manners | Cultural Studies | Scoop.it

In 2414-2375 BC, Ptahhotep wrote The Maxims of Ptahhotep. The Maxims are conformist precepts extolling such civil virtues as:

 

 

 

 

- TruthfulnessSelf-control

- Kindness towards one's fellow beings

- Learning by listening to everybody

- Knowing that human knowledge is never perfect

- Avoiding open conflict wherever possible should not be considered weakness

- The importance of justice and morality

 

Some of the maxims refer to one's behaviour when in the presence of the great, how to choose the right master and how to serve him. Others teach the correct way to lead through openness and kindness. Greed is the base of all evil and should be guarded against, while generosity towards family and friends is praiseworthy. From: Ancient Egypt encyclopedia

 

Confucius (551–479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher whose philosophy emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity.

Pinterest Is Gaining Ground on Facebook and Twitter for News | Cultural Studies | Scoop.it

Pinterest, a platform more traditionally known for retail, food and travel-related postings, is gaining ground in the news category.

 

When it comes to sharing news online, Facebook and Twitter get most of the attention. Pinterest, a platform more traditionally known for retail, food and travel-related postings, is gaining ground in the news category as well.

 

A new study from Gigya, a social login provider for many media companies, including ABC, NBC, and FOX, found that 20% of all "media/publishing"-related content shared to social networks in Q3 was shared on Pinterest.

 Surprised that Pinterest is showing results as a news channel, but it's a welcome tactic for the PR toolbox.

Big Idea 2014: Big Data vs. Big Dreamers

Big Idea 2014: Big Data vs. Big Dreamers | Cultural Studies | Scoop.it

Friedrich A. Hayek, the 1974 Nobel Prize winner in economics, believed the human mind could not see its own advance; the future is unpredictable, and we simply cannot know now what still remains to be known.

 

Change and creativity always take us by surprise. If it didn’t, we wouldn’t need it, because we could simply plan on it and incorporate it into our existing strategies and processes.

 SO TRUE! 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 28, 2013 3:02 PM
