How is Content Curation helping Professionals? Where is it evolving to? The Friday Hangout

Guillaume, our CEO & Co-Founder, was invited to the Friday Hangout this morning with Janet Fouts and Steve Farnsworth. Both are strong Social Media experts and have seen many trends: Steve is a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Influencer and Janet started online communities back in the 90's before starting her own consulting practice. 

 

They talked about the role Content Curation has for Social Media Marketing and how it will help social media evolve from the social graph to the interest graph, something key for professionals who tend to have niche long-tail interests.

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, March 20, 5:38 AM

Thinking back, so many important moments in my life didn't happen by luck.  I was always one of those students who had to work hard for my grades, and for anything.

 

The first time I tried out for cheerleading I didn't make the team.  That experience molded the rest of my life, because I realized that in order to achieve my goals I had to commit to practicing harder than others and than anyone believed was necessary.  it was because of the practice that I had the confidence and of course improved skills to make the team the following season.

 

Our lives are built on moments, experiences, and important decisions.  For those of you who are hitting the pavement, and losing hope -- take a step back to determine what you need to adapt, adjust, and revise.

 

Your resume.  Is it repackaged and targeted for the position, industry, and company you are applying for?  Will it make it through the robots to be seen by a human?  Does your resume have direction, and amplify your accomplishments, strengths in both qualitative and quantitative terms>

 

Your Search Strategy:  Are you simply doing what everyone else is doing or are you reaching out to friends, colleagues, groups, networks to let them know what type of positions you are in search of and asking them to pass your resume along to the right person.  Make sure that you continue to adapt your approach.

 

Review the industry and position you are applying for.  If you do your homework, you may find that the position and industry is shrinking and not growing for the geographical area you are seeking.  You have two choices...repackage your skills and experience towards another job/industry or search where the industry is growing and thriving.

 

Interviewing is a skill that you can strengthen and improve.  Sure it takes alot of time.  Of course the rejections are easy.  Remember, when the going gets tough the tough get going. 

 

If any readers have any words of inspiration for our readers...would love to hear from you.  I have talked to many of you in search of jobs, and it is because of you that I do what I do.

 

Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

Medical microrobots to deliver drugs on demand

Medical microrobots to deliver drugs on demand | medical toursim | Scoop.it

Advances in micro- and nanoscale engineering in the medical field have led to the development of various robotic designs that one day will allow a new level of minimally invasive medicine. These micro- and nanorobots will be able to reach a targeted area, provide treatments and therapies for a desired duration, measure the effects and, at the conclusion of the treatment, be removed or degrade without causing adverse effects. Ideally, all these tasks would be automated but they could also be performed under the direct supervision and control of an external user.Several approaches have been explored for the wireless actuation of microrobots. Among these, magnetic fields have been the most widely employed strategy for propulsion because they do not require special environmental properties such as conductivity or transparency (for instance: "Artificial nano swimmers", with a video that shows the controlled motions of particles in a magnetic field).

 

This approach allows for the precise manipulation of magnetic objects toward specific locations, and magnetic fields are biocompatible even at relatively high field strengths (MRI).In a new work, a team of researchers from ETH Zurich and Harvard University (David Mooney's lab) demonstrate that additional intelligence – including sensing and actuation – can be instantiated in these microrobots by selecting appropriate materials and methods for the fabrication process.

 

"Our work combines the design and fabrication of near infrared light (NIR) responsive hydrogel capsules and biocompatible magnetic microgels with a magnetic manipulation system to perform targeted drug and cell delivery tasks, Dr." Mahmut Selman Sakar, a research scientist in Bradley Nelson's Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at ETH Zurich, tells Nanowerk.Reporting their results in the November 4, 2013 online edition of Advanced Materials ("An Integrated Microrobotic Platform for On-Demand, Targeted Therapeutic Interventions"), first-authored by Sakar's co-researcher Stefano Fusco, the team fabricated an untethered, self-folding, soft microrobotic platform, in which different functionalities are integrated to achieve targeted, on-demand delivery of biological agents.

Five Times Stronger Than Steel: Spider Silk Finally Poised For Commercial Entry

Five Times Stronger Than Steel: Spider Silk Finally Poised For Commercial Entry | medical toursim | Scoop.it

There is a scene in the film “Spider-Man 2” where Spider-Man prevents a train full of people from crashing by holding it back with about 10 sets of spider silk ropes each less than half an inch thick. It turns out the scene isn’t just fantasy.

 

“We calculated roughly how thick the fibers were, how many of them he had attached to the walls, how much the locomotive and people weighed, and how fast it appeared to be going,” says Randy Lewis, a professor of biology and biological engineering atUtah State University. “Spider-Man would have been able to stop that train,” says Lewis, a molecular biologist, materials scientist, and chemist who for 25 years has been striving to synthesize spider silk.

 

Despite being a protein, spider silk is by weight five times stronger than steel and three times tougher than Kevlar, a p-aramid fiber from DuPont. Strength is defined as the weight a material can bear, and toughness is the amount of kinetic energy it can absorb without breaking. The silk’s primary structure is its amino acid sequence, mainly consisting of repeated glycine and alanine blocks.

 

Potential applications include cables and bulletproof vests. Spider silk’s antimicrobial properties make it suitable for wound patches. Because the silk is not rejected by the human body, it can be used to manufacture artificial tendons or to coat implants. And its thermal conductivity is similar to that of copper but its mass density is one-seventh of copper’s, making it a potential heat management material.

Is Big Pharma evil? Doctors should share the blame | medical toursim | Scoop.it
We can blame Big Pharma all we want, but the truth is without physicians there is no market.
Sieg Holle's insight:

Take  responsibility for your own health care by intelligent and informed choice?

Despite their limited statistical significance, however, the data are quite intellectually significant. They help us understand that pharmaceuticals don’t cure all, that over-reliance on prescription drugs is quite possibly not only costly but also stunningly ineffective. They help us see that many of the clinical trials touted as “evidence” of a drug’s efficacy are poor indicators of the drug’s impact in real-world situations. Even with cardiovascular disease, where pharmaceutical drugs may have slightly improved aggregate mortality, the costs associated with exceedingly modest gains should give us pause.
