Data are becoming essential for marketing and PR pros.

They’re not the only communications pros under pressure to use more measurement in PR and marketing efforts, and technology companies are responding to data overload with apps to help marketers make sense of the numbers.

Here are five ways data can enhance your brand’s marketing strategies:

Wireless electronic implants deliver antibiotics, then harmlessly dissolve

Wireless electronic implants deliver antibiotics, then harmlessly dissolve | geeky and fun social media news | Scoop.it

Imagine an electronic implant that delivers a drug when triggered by a remote wireless signal — then harmlessly dissolves (no post-surgical infection concerns, no fuss, no muss) within minutes or weeks. That’s what researchers at Tufts University and the  University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana have demonstrated* in mice, using a resistor (as a source of heat for releasing drug and help dissolving the implant) and a power-receiving coil made of magnesium deposited onto a silk protein”pocket” that also protects the electronics and controls its dissolution time. There have been other implantable medical devices, but they typically use non-degradable materials that have limited operational lifetimes and must eventually be removed or replaced — requiring more surgery.


Devices were implanted in vivo in S. aureus-infected tissue and activated by a wireless transmitter for two sets of 10-minute heat treatments. Tissue collected from the mice 24 hours after treatment showed no sign of infection, and surrounding tissues were found to be normal. Devices completely dissolved after 15 days, and magnesium levels at the implant site and surrounding areas were comparable to levels typically found in the body. The researchers also conducted in vitro experiments in which similar remotely controlled devices released the antibiotic ampicillin to kill E. coli and S. aureus bacteria. The wireless activation of the devices was found to enhance antibiotic release without reducing antibiotic activity.


The research was published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Early Edition the week of November 24–28, 2014. and was supported by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.

On this Thanksgiving, I want to remind this community that geospatial skills can be used to help othersWant to see geographic knowledge and geospatial skills in action?  Crowd-sourced mapping is increasingly an important resource during an emergency.  Poorer places are often not as well mapped out by the commercial cartographic organizations and these are oftentimes the places that are hardest hit by natural disasters.  Relief agencies depend on mapping platforms to handle the logistics of administering aid and assessing the extent of the damage and rely on these crowd-sourced data sets made by people like you and me.

Apple Turns A Pencil Into A Jaw-Dropping Presentation

Apple Turns A Pencil Into A Jaw-Dropping Presentation | geeky and fun social media news | Scoop.it

In the introduction of the iPad Air 2 Apple presentation designers created a great example of using a simple visual to tell a complex story.

 

Some people might use the excuse, “We use PowerPoint in my company and it’s not as elegant as Apple Keynote.” Maybe it’s the story—or a lack of one—that’s the problem!

 

I asked Cory to re-create the Apple pencil slide a second time in PowerPoint. You can see it here. It’s simple and clean. Corporate America doesn’t have a PowerPoint problem; it has a storytelling problem.  Learn to tell a story and use visual comparisons to bring the story alive....
