Your Smartphone Will Soon Know If You Have Bipolar Disorder

Your Smartphone Will Soon Know If You Have Bipolar Disorder | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
In the United States, 1 in 50 people over the age of 25 have some form of bipolar disorder. In fact, the United States has more cases of bipolar I and II..
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Researchers at the University of Michigan are now testing a new smartphone app for Android, code-named PRIORI, that can help detect if someone is having a bipolar episode. PRIORI is designed to learn over time to monitor a person’s voice and detect subtle changes in mood. A change is a signal that the user might be having either a manic or depressive episode."

Why Statups Should Create Shopify Stores

Why Statups Should Create Shopify Stores | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Startups & Stores
I almost forgot one of my rules (lol). Stores help any website, brand or idea get better faster. There are things you learn creating a store our #startup http://www.curagami.com can't teach.

We have over 30 years of ecommerce experience and creating one Shopify store will, over the course of the 2 - 4 days it takes, teach you half of what we know.

What Creating A Store Teaches Startups

 

* Content and copy writing.

* Webdesign.

* Product categorization, planning and business intelligence (#BI). 

* Social Media.
* Thinking about THEM (your customers).

* Learning to test & validate assumptions.
* Provides a new dimension for B2B and B2C products, companies and tools.

The new "perspective" the last bullet mentions is the gold. Getting out of your head and testing assumptions and ideas IRL (In Real Life) is more valuable than every brainstorm we've ever had.

Brainstorms and past experience create an assumption framework. Creating a store pushing assumptions into the deep end of the pool and they learn to swim fast or drown

Competit3ive Advantage
We work around 6 startups and NONE of them have or are likely to follow my advice to create store. Every startup here in Durham thinks they are selling a THING.

I've learned the hard way the first thing we startups sell is OURSELVES (you & people on your team). Next thing you sell is money making competency. If you know a better way to prove "money making competency" than spending $200 to create a Shopify store be sure to tweet @Curagami and share that idea and trust we will be creating your idea next :).

PS. Will share HackHeadphones.Shopify.com when its live (probably Monday)

Half the Sky Movement is a transmedia initiative that was created to shed light on the struggles of mothers, young girls and their families in countries like Cambodia, Kenya, India, Sierra Leone, and Afghanistan.

 

What makes this initiative so appealing and powerful is how it combines different forms of media to share stories, raise awareness, and find solutions to a host of serious gender-based injustices.

How sniffing rosemary can increase memory by 75%

How sniffing rosemary can increase memory by 75% | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Rosemary has been associated with memory enhancement since ancient times. There are many well known health benefits of the herb rosemary but scientists are now studying its specific effects with regard to memory with outstanding results.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Rosemary essential oil’s role in aromatherapy as an agent that promotes mental clarity was validated by the study of Moss, Cook, Wesnes, and Duckett (2003) in which the inhalation of rosemary essential oil significantly enhanced the performance for overall quality of memory and secondary memory factors of study participants.

More recently, in 2012 a study on 28 older people (average 75 years old) found statistically significant dose-dependent improvements in cognitive performance with doses of dried rosemary leaf powder.

Another study by Mark Moss and Lorraine Oliver at Northumbria University, Newcastle has identified 1,8-cineole (a compound in rosemary) as an agent potentially responsible for cognitive and mood performance.

Further studies by Mark Moss and team have found memory enhancements of up to an amazing 75% from diffusion of rosemary essential oil."
