Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 18, 2013 5:49 PM

This NPR article highlighted this video and research that shows that a basic understanding of climate change is missing in our society (which opens up room for naysayers to think that all opinions are equally valid in a scientific discussion).

Expert's comment, December 18, 2013 7:27 PM
hmm.
Anhony DeSimone's curator insight, December 19, 2013 9:17 AM

This video shoes us how climate change works in the most basic understanding. The video shows how global warming works and what exactly it does. It also shows how the climate changes effect the earth and the importance of understanding the  climate.

The Power of "I Don't Know" - Edutopia

The Power of "I Don't Know" - Edutopia | profile | Scoop.it
The role of teaching has evolved. No longer are we the carriers of knowledge, giving it to students and assessing if they can repeat facts successfully. We are, instead, tasked with teaching students how to find answers themselves.

And it all starts with a simple three-word phrase: I don't know.

While no amount of money can ever bring back a child, this settlement will hopefully provide some financial resources to the family and encourage the City of Novato to take further measures to make their streets safer for cyclists.

Value-Based Marketing: Sources of Content Inspiration

Value-Based Marketing: Sources of Content Inspiration | profile | Scoop.it

...But what’s a business owner or a content marketer to do if they’re supposed to come up with great content, and they don’t know where to start?

 

Everyone knows that content is the key to turning a lead into a buyer.

 

Each lead reads through your content and takes away something that they find useful. If your content isn’t valuable to them, they’re less likely to pay attention to your brand and what you have to say. No amount of SEO, keyword lacing, or fancy gimmicks can replace high-quality content.

 

So where can you find some inspiration for your content? Here are some ideas....

14 Amazingly Free Stock Photo Websites

14 Amazingly Free Stock Photo Websites | profile | Scoop.it

If you've ever tried searching for free stock photos on the Internet, you probably know what a ridiculous hassle it can be.

As a general rule, free stock photos are extremely difficult to find. A huge portion of the stock photo market is owned by professional companies like Shutterstock and 123RF, who charge $20 or more for a single photo. Even when you can find free stock photos, most are low resolution, watermarked, blurry and, at best, uninspired.

Lucky for you, there are a few ways to access high-quality stock photos without any hassle or significant cost.

Here's a lovingly curated list of the world's best free stock photo websites for designers, business owners and anyone else...

Images are important to use throughout a websites content but finding great photos can eat-up a lot of time.  Images help attract reader attention by breaking up text and providing visualization.  Adding images will improve also your SEO if a targeted keyword is included into the alt text.  I found the fourteen websites listed above to be extremely useful resources, which I will definitely be of use in the near future!

China has used various means to eliminate minority groups' cultural identity, and human rights groups argue that this ban on Ramadan is no different (children and government employees are banned from fasting, allegedly for health and safety concerns).  Ethnic Uyghurs speak a Turkic language are more culturally connected to Cental Asia than East Asia.  Predominantly Muslim, the Uyghurs are defying some of the more controversial laws that they feel single them out."
