The 70/20/10 Model for SEO & Content Excellence

The 70/20/10 Model for SEO & Content Excellence | Performance Studies | Scoop.it
SEO professionals should adopt ways of thinking about content that people want, rather than gaming the system with content that works. We all know that what “works” changes from month to month, year to year. In the long-term, true success should hinge on how well you intuit what readers want – and why not give it to them?

 

And so, more than anything else, I want to encourage you to use the 70/20/10 model.

Theatre For Education

Theatre For Education | Performance Studies | Scoop.it

Our schools— especially our urban schools, where children face chasms of inequity— must prepare students to be artists. Not to produce a generation of painters and poets, but instead to equip our young people with the artist's palate: imagination, confidence, empathy, and tolerance. Participating in a school play allows students to find their voice, to experience joy in learning, and to work together toward a common goal. When students attend the theatre, they encounter the world in a new way— they question, reflect, and feel. Picasso said, "art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life". Our cities are dusty. Artistic experiences wash away the dust and allow our children to find their authentic selves.

This edition of Exposed is a little different than those I’ve done in the past. Why? Because it has a theme. You might know I'm producing an event at the end of August called the Women’s Music Summit.

Houston Ballet says hello to Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo | Life | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

Houston Ballet says hello to Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo | Life | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle | Performance Studies | Scoop.it

Jorma Elo loves tutus and classical music, but what he does with them can make your head spin. It's not just that bodies jut at odd angles unexpectedly or limbs shiver like quicksilver. A unique dynamic emerges in the fast pacing, along with a dark sense of humanity.
That's made Elo, a native of Finland, one of the ballet world's hottest talents in pretty short order.

Funding for public broadcasting has been under attack from the right for decades. In this clip from 1969, the late Fred Rogers — the creator of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” — gives an impassioned defense of federal funding for PBS. At the time President Nixon wanted to cut a federal grant to PBS in half.

Folklore Economics within cultural production | Cultural ... | Performance Studies | Scoop.it

Folklore studies is not secondary to economic development, it is central. Recently, two scholars provided differing accounts of contemporary capitlism and interesting they both used the same name Capitalism 3.0. The first account by Peter Barnes argued that capitalism as a production of surplus capital was being replaced by another form of capitalims that takes place in the commons and that contemporary developments must be horizontal, that is on a community model but over larger special zones. This approach includes what Lawrence Lessig called “The Commons” what Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri called “The Common Wealth” and what Peter Linebaugh called the “Magna Carta manifesto”. Each of these approached, based upon a Marxist reading of capital urged for a reorientation of priorities towards the commons – the social world – something that folklorists know much about. In fact it is remarkable how easily it is to replace commons with folk. I’m not suggesting however that is what we should do.
