Mistrust Threatens Delicate Balance at a Sacred Site in Jerusalem

Mistrust Threatens Delicate Balance at a Sacred Site in Jerusalem | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
A site in the Old City of Jerusalem, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, has been a flash point since the advent of modern Zionism.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 22, 10:37 PM

There has been turmoil and violence in Jerusalem this month; at it's core, much of the fighting has been around the political control of sacred spaces that are seen as critical to both groups' cultural and religious identity.  This particular sacred place is intertwined with both Judaism as well as Islam, and understanding the current round of violence demands that we understand some of the historical geography of religion in Jerusalem.  To explore more about sacred sites in general as a spatial concept, visit this link

Is Content Marketing a Definitive Strategy for SEO Success?

Is Content Marketing a Definitive Strategy for SEO Success? | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) isn’t the same as what it used to be. You just cannot crop up an ugly website, and publish mediocre content, and build a few links and expect to rank well.


A well-crafted website, high-quality content, and thousands of links can fetch you decent number of social shares. But the real problem lies when it comes to scaling all of these.


Building thousands of links is expensive and time consuming. And if you don’t have anything worth sharing on social web, you’ll not receive any social shares unless you buy them from spammy accounts. So how to build those thousands of links and naturally get thousands of shares. All you need to do is, think beyond – build strong content marketing strategy

8 Steps to a Solid Social Media Strategy

8 Steps to a Solid Social Media Strategy | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

In thinking about social media marketing, you have to remove your corporate cap and instead think like a fun party guest, focusing on how you can develop relevant, interesting, enjoyable, and ultimately share-worthy content. From there, a following and uptick in sales are only natural.


What do great party guests have? First of all, they look sharp and presentable. That’s where a good social media page design comes in handy. You don’t want your looks to deter potential fans. Secondly, they are polite and warm. You want your social media messages to have a positive, engaging tone. Thirdly, they illuminate a room with sparkling conversation. They bring a dish to pass or a gift for the host. You can achieve these objectives by crafting thoughtful blog content to share and offering special deals for your social media audience....
