Rob Wile:  "An unidentified individual or group responsible for uploading videos that simply show a woman opening Disney toys made an estimated $4.9 million last year, more than any other channel for 2014, according to OpenSlate, a video analytics platform that analyzes ad-supported content on YouTube."

Critical Thinking and Modern Japan: Conflict in the Discourse of Government and Business

Abstract:  This paper examines the public discourses of Japanese government and business interests on the subject of critical thinking within education. It begins by examining the dilemma critical thinking can pose to states and organisations with the emphasis it places on reasoned nonconformity. While nonconformity can be important in a post-industrial business context where fresh ideas and innovation provide the impetus for profit, it can also pose potential difficulties for organisational stability, as people choose to reject established ways of thinking or behaving. In twenty-first century Japan, this dilemma can clearly be seen in public policy statements made on education. On the one hand, the impact of globalised competition has led to a demand from government and business circles for a new kind of graduate, able to exercise independent judgement skills unbound by conventional thinking. On the other hand, they also express fears that the increasing individualism displayed by young people is threatening the social order and leading Japan towards an undesirable future. Their apparent solution to this dilemma is the re-introduction of patriotic and moral education, aimed at reaffirming the pre-war values of social duty and national solidarity.

Top Tech Trends & People of 2012 (Focus on New Media Communications)

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

 

P.S. There are some typos and honest mistakes in this textbook, but I am comfortable sharing it as is. I am excited to redesign it for next semester.

Ken

Cake, Coffee and Death

Cake, Coffee and Death | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

There is a quiet revolution going on in terms of attitudes towards death. What had become, until relatively recently, a taboo topic is starting to enjoy greater coverage and understanding with movements such as Death Cafés, of which more later, encouraging engagement with all its varied aspects. And as attitudes change, so too does the marketing of those companies which cater to consumers’ needs around death.

 

Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "Death Cafés, events for discussing mortality while also celebrating life, are creating new opportunities for people and businesses. By Ashley Gage and Megan Mooney."

Ezra Klein and Media Companies as Cults of Personality

Ezra Klein and Media Companies as Cults of Personality | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
One of the biggest pet theories in media is that individual rock stars can create their own businesses out of sheer force of personality (and their own talent).The hypothesis will be put to the test
Sharrock's insight:

little known fact: "In life sciences, for example, many of the best big-money medical breakthroughs are develop by upstarts who buy the intellectual property from big companies who can't use it or focus on it. The difference is, however, that the big companies in that sector will then partner, fund and happily acquire these companies - supporting the growth of innovation in that sector."

Semiconductor firm Qualcomm's revolutionary color display technology is rooted in the microstructures of the Morpho butterfly's wings.
