The 21 New Rules of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 21 New Rules of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC] | Open Mind & Open Heart | Scoop.it

"In this new world of Internet marketing, it's not about being "optimized," but being "easy to find." That sounds like a subtle difference, but it couldn't be more profound.

 

One has to do with page tags, keywords, and trying to manipulate incoming links; the other is about generating interesting ideas, starting discussions, and being a prominent voice in your market or industry. It's the difference between screaming nonsense through a microphone and having journalists come to you for an expert opinion.

 

This infographic sets out the 21 NEW rules of content marketing that every modern marketer should know. If you want to maintain a high search engine ranking and use content to keep targeted buyers coming to you, this is information you can't afford to skip".

This article explains how people come up with the statistics that they can for each player. Using spatial thinking anaylsts can figure out where a player is best on the field. Where players "sweet spots" are on the field or where a player is most effective when playing. It is crazy how people even thought of this.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 6, 2013 7:48 PM

Many young citizens are accusing the Turkish government of becoming increasingly authoritarian and have taken to the streets as they fear that their secular society will follow more traditional Islamic values (just last week, the sale of alcohol was outlawed).  Over 1,700 have been arrested in 67 cities in these protests in the last few days.

Inhalable chemo-carrying nanoparticles target lung cancer directly

Inhalable chemo-carrying nanoparticles target lung cancer directly | Open Mind & Open Heart | Scoop.it

U.S. researchers have developed a novel lung cancer treatment that uses nanoparticles to deliver an inhaled form of chemotherapy.

 

The scientists from Oregon State University, Rutgers University in New Jersey and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey developed "nanostructured lipid nanocarriers" that find cancer cells in the lung, attach to them and deliver drugs locally. With the inhaled substance, the patient receives an unadulterated form of the cancer drug compared with conventional intravenous administration, which can accumulate in other organs such as the liver or kidneys with toxic effects.

 

What's more, the nanoparticle comes with a bundle of small interfering RNA, siRNA, which helps silence certain genes to make the cancer cells more vulnerable to the drugs. Overall, the study showed 83% of the drug reaching its target in the lungs as opposed to 23% with the traditional approach, according to the article published in the Journal of Controlled Release.

 

"A drug delivery system that can be inhaled is a much more efficient approach, targeting just the cancer cells as much as possible," said co-author Oleh Taratula. "Other chemotherapeutic approaches only tend to suppress tumors, but this system appears to eliminate it."

 

The team has applied for a patent for the delivery platform, but human clinical trials will have to await further testing.

Yale scientists develop video-rate nanoscopy to peer deep into a cell in real time

Yale scientists develop video-rate nanoscopy to peer deep into a cell in real time | Open Mind & Open Heart | Scoop.it

A dream of scientists has been to visualize details of structures within our cells in real time, a breakthrough that would greatly aid in the study of their function.  However, even the best of current microscopes can take minutes to recreate images of the internal machinery of cells at a usable resolution.

Thanks to a technical tour de force, Yale University researchers can now generate accurate images of sub-cellular structures in milliseconds rather than minutes.

 

This image of microtubules, which act as a cellular scaffolding, was captured in just 33 milliseconds. “We can now see research come to life and tackle complex questions or conditions which require hundreds of images, something we have not been able to do before,” said Joerg Bewersdorf, assistant professor of cell biology and biomedical engineering and senior author of the research, published in the journal Nature Methods.

Graphene Paint to Power our Homes?

Graphene Paint to Power our Homes? | Open Mind & Open Heart | Scoop.it
Scientists from the University of Manchester have discovered a material which combines graphene, a one-atom thick layer of graphite, with the transition metal dichalcogenides.

 

Something straight out of a science fiction film is fastly becoming an exciting reality as scientists from the University of Manchester have discovered a material which combines graphene, a one-atom thick layer of graphite, with the transition metal dichalcogenides. The material is thin and flexible, and it can absorb sunlight to produce electricity at the same rates of existing solar panels. This could be potentially used to coat the outside of buildings to generate power required to run appliances inside.

 

The material is composed of transition metal dichalcogenides layers sandwiched between the two outer layers of graphene. The graphene acts as an extremely efficient conductive layer, and the TMDC acts as a very sensitive light absorber.

 

Researchers have found that the 'light absorption characteristic' of the material can be increased when the graphene layer is sprinkled with gold particles. The material has a quantum efficiency of 30%.

 

Researchers believe that entire buildings could be powered by coating their exposed surfaces with the panels. Further, the energy produced by the panels could be used to alter the transparency and reflectivity of windows and fixtures.

 

This type of graphene material could be used to form on the outside of the buildings to generate power required to run the appliances inside. It is flexible and easy to use.

 

Not only can graphene paint be used to power objects, the material will also be able to chaneg color.

 

Researchers also believe that the graphene base substance has the ability to create a new generation of hand-held devices such as smartphones that can be powered using sunlight. These devices can be made ultra-thin, transparent and flexible.

 

Research suggests that there can be a high level of optimism regarding the development of graphene in the near future.

 

They hope that the material can be used for a wide range of industrial and day-to-day applications, providing potential technological breakthroughs in the areas, right from electronics to telecommunications and energy generation.
