Causes of the Cambrian Explosion

Many hypotheses have been invoked to explain the rapid diversification of animal species in the early Cambrian (541 million to 515 million years ago), ranging from starbursts in the Milky Way to intrinsic genomic reorganization and developmental patterning. Recent hypotheses for the Cambrian explosion fall into three main categories: developmental/genetic, ecologic, and abiotic/environmental, with geochemical hypotheses forming an abundant and distinctive subset of the last (1). Most of these hypotheses have been posited as stand-alone processes that were the main cause of the explosion, yet many of them are tightly interlinked and codependent. The rapid diversification of animals in the early Cambrian is likely to have been the result of a complex interplay of biotic and abiotic processes.

"Primer" Technologies For Enhancing 21st Century Citizenship

"Primer" Technologies For Enhancing 21st Century Citizenship | EerstehulpSEO | Scoop.it

What technologies could make the most difference? We must have new ways for citizens to self-organize, both in normal life and (especially) during crises, when normal channels may collapse, or else get taken over by the authorities for their own use. All this might require is a slight change -- or set of additions -- in the programming of the sophisticated little radio communications devices that we all carry in our pockets, nowadays.

For Teenage Brains, the Importance of Continuing to Learn Deeply

For Teenage Brains, the Importance of Continuing to Learn Deeply | EerstehulpSEO | Scoop.it
It used to be that neuroscientists thought smart people were all alike. But now they think that some very smart people retain the ability to learn rapidly, like a child, well into adolescence.

 

“Until adolescence there are lots of new connections being made between neurons to store patterns and information collected from the environment,” Brant says.

 

The brain adds many synapses in the cortex. This comes at a time when the brain is especially responsive to learning. This is typically followed by cortical pruning in adolescence, as the brain shifts from hyperlearning mode.

Hewitt agrees: “The developing brain is a much more flexible organ than the mature brain.”

 

Learning doesn’t stop at adolescence, of course, but the “sensitive period” — where the brain is hyperlearning mode — does appear to come to an end. Learning new things gets harder.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 3, 3:47 PM

Other than the actual product, there is no difference between these bootleggers and the illegal drug trade in the US. Even when they said that people that drink the alcohol get arrested, there is no difference. In the US we put heroin addicts in jail every day. Also, in the US the illegal drug trade is very lucrative, but also very dangerous.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 4, 5:48 PM

Alcohol bootleggers have been getting shutdown by the police force. Without this service, the bootleggers would be out of business and probably in jail. This is like prohibition in the U.S. and those who sold alcohol were fined and also arrested. The same thing is happening here where the bootleggers are trying to make huge money by selling something thats outlawed.

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, September 10, 11:36 AM

Interesting to see this happening in other areas of the world besides the United States during the times of prohibition.  If there is a will there is a way.

Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web

Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web | EerstehulpSEO | Scoop.it

"Jonah Peretti, a co-founder of Huffington Post and CEO of Buzzfeed, said at PandoMonthly tonight in New York that he doesn’t care about SEO anymore. He views it as a broken system that optimizes for robots, not humans." Erin Griffith reports on Pandodaily.


“Media and content are human businesses, and it’s a problem for humans to give so much power to Google, which is a robot” he said.


Without saying Google is Skynet and evil, more and more people now see the flaws compared to what information networks like Twitter can produce (not saying the latter is perfect either). His conclusion is that you shouldn't care about SEO anymore but I think there's an even more compelling reason to move to Curation. Google is increasingly taking social signals into account so that Social is becoming the new SEO no matter which angle you take it from:

- whether because your audience will find you first on social networks

- whether because your content will be well positioned in Search results because human curators will pick it up (and therefore Google too).


The debate whether SEO still matters or not is not important. What's relevant is that great content that please human genuine interests will surface more than it used to thanks to the work of human curators.

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation | EerstehulpSEO | Scoop.it

In the guest post published by Jeff Bullas' blog, Intervistato.com's Maria Petrescu interviews Scoop.it's co-founder Marc Rougier after giving her own insights on why curation is a much needed trend.

 

"Online content curation is a hot trend as business owners and professionals realize that content is vital to add value to their customers and prospects. The trend was already evident in 2011 but 2012 saw an outright explosion of the phenomenon. Also important is delivering and sharing that content on your social media networks." she writes.

 

She comes back with Marc on the background behind Scoop.it: "The founders were literally in love with social media, but had no time to produce content. They had already been working on another platform, where they published content organized in topics. People loved it, but after a while they felt the growing need of getting content that was more specific, based on their single interests."

 

Plus other interesting insights and a video of the interview. Check it out!

BMC Plant Biology | Abstract | Construction of a high-density genetic map for sesame based on large scale marker development by specific length amplified fragment (SLAF) sequencing

Background: The genetics and molecular biology of sesame has only recently begun to be studied even though sesame is an important oil seed crop. A high-density genetic map for sesame has not been published yet due to a lack of sufficient molecular markers. Specific length amplified fragment sequencing (SLAF-seq) is a recently developed high-resolution strategy for large-scale de novo SNP discovery and genotyping. SLAF-seq was employed in this study to obtain sufficient markers to construct a high-density genetic map for sesame. Results: In total, 28.21 Gb of data containing 201,488,285 pair-end reads was obtained after sequencing. The average coverage for each SLAF marker was 23.48-fold in the male parent, 23.38-fold in the female parent, and 14.46-fold average in each F2 individual. In total, 71,793 high-quality SLAFs were detected of which 3,673 SLAFs were polymorphic and 1,272 of the polymorphic markers met the requirements for use in the construction of a genetic map. The final map included 1,233 markers on the 15 linkage groups (LGs) and was 1,474.87 cM in length with an average distance of 1.20 cM between adjacent markers. To our knowledge, this map is the densest genetic linkage map to date for sesame. 'SNP_only' markers accounted for 87.51% of the markers on the map. A total of 205 markers on the map showed significant (P < 0.05) segregation distortion. Conclusions: We report here the first high-density genetic map for sesame. The map was constructed using an F2 population and the SLAF-seq approach, which allowed the efficient development of a large number of polymorphic markers in a short time. Results of this study will not only provide a platform for gene/QTL fine mapping, map-based gene isolation, and molecular breeding for sesame, but will also serve as a reference for positioning sequence scaffolds on a physical map, to assist in the process of assembling the sesame genome sequence.

Old Company, New Internet: How Glenn Street and Mascots.com got into Social Media | EerstehulpSEO | Scoop.it

When Glenn started his company 25 years ago, the Internet wasn't very popular. As time went on and the Internet became increasingly available, though, he realized that it was the perfect tool for a small business like his - one with limited marketing dollars and a global clientele.

After creating his website, mascots.com, Glenn realized how much easier it was for him and his company to be found. In recent hears, Street and his team found value in social media. They began sharing content including information about their mascots as well as entertaining pictures and videos to spread the word about their success.

Glenn found Scoop.it while perusing articles on Mashable. He was drawn in by the concept and thought it could be an interesting addition to his social media efforts.

The intriguing aspect of Glenn's business is that it is entertainment-based. He finds that most of the content he finds on Scoop.it related to his field is entertaining to a very broad audience. Although it is always related to mascots and street characters, who doesn't love watching a giant animal do crazy things on the Internet?

Street used to find this content using Google Alerts and reviewing all of it before posting it to Twitter, Facebook, etc. Now, with Scoop.it, he has all of his content in one place and is able to go through it and feed it directly to his networks. He has found this is a great way to create good looking content and increase his SEO.

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | EerstehulpSEO | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.

 

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.

 

As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.

 

Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.

 

Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.

 

In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand.

You Need Start Thinking Like A Media Company To Guide The Future Of Digital Business

You Need Start Thinking Like A Media Company To Guide The Future Of Digital Business | EerstehulpSEO | Scoop.it

In this article by Lee Odden on Online Marketing Blog, he introduces the next book by Michael Brito, SVP at Edelman, and the author of "Your Brand, The Next Media Company".
The article caught my attention since many points are relevant for my topic and for human content curators.

Here is some excerpts:
"Now more than ever, we need trusted sources of insight and leadership to guide the future of digital business.

Whether you work for a large brand, small business or just a consultant, you need start thinking like a media company. And the answer is right in plain sight:
- There is a content and media surplus in the market place and consumers have an attention deficit.
- Consumer’s lives’ are dynamic and unpredictable, making it impossible for any brand to reach them consistently.
- All consumers are influential, despite their Klout scores and are aiding their peers down the purchase funnel.

"What exactly is a media company?"
They have five characteristics that you should adopt when thinking overall about content marketing or content strategy.

1. Storytelling: Media companies tell stories...
2. Content: Media companies are content machines with an “always on” mentality...
3. Relevance: Media companies provide relevant content all the time to someone, somewhere...
4. Ubiquity: Media companies are everywhere. They dominate the search engine results and their content is shared daily across social media channels...
5. Agility: Media companies move quickly...

Brito also provides technology reviews of content platforms like Newscred, Contently, Compendium, Outbrain and real-time monitoring dashboards like Social Flow and the Dachis Group Real-time Marketing Platform that will help facilitate this transition..."
