We live in a time when inequality is increasing.  A smaller and smaller % of the population holds the majority of wealth in the world.

Sea levels are rising and recent research tells us the impact will happen more quickly than originally stated. This infographic shares information on how the sea level has risen over the last 140 years and how much it is predicted to rise by the end of the century. It also shares information on the two main reasons this is taking place. This infographic would be appropriate to share with students studying climate change/global warming.

12 tips for producing a killer news release | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

...Rob Nance, director of content marketing at Inovautus Consulting in Boulder, Colorado, said that if there’s any doubt that journalists and others will care about a press release, then you shouldn’t send it. Nance recalled that when he was working at an online media company covering the accounting business, he received a press release from an accounting firm announcing that it had a new sidewalk in front of its building. 

“Funny, yes, but it’s not news or timely, useful information,” Nance said. “It’s a game of quality over quantity with press releases.” 

Here are 12 tips that will help ensure your releases win the battle of quality over quantity....

How Much Energy Is Appropriate For Media Interviews? | Mr. Media Training | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

After concluding on-camera practice interviews with our clients, I often ask them to rate how much energy they thought they had, on a scale of 1 to 10. “Oh, around an eight or nine,” the trainees usually guess. “That was probably a bit over-the-top, right?”


I then ask the other people in the room to rate their colleagues’ energy during the interview. They usually rate it a 4 or 5. The trainee is always shocked....

Now that Google Keep is out, how does it compare against note taking juggernaut Evernote?

 

From the moment Google Keep was accidentally leaked, it looked like Google was building an Evernote clone. In the wake of the official release, its name, announcement video and aspects of the user interface all evoke a certain Evernote-like quality.

Seth's Blog: Thirty years of projects

Seth's Blog: Thirty years of projects | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

There's a difference between signing on to someone else's project and starting your own. The impresario mindset of initiation and improvisation are at the heart of the project. It's yours, you own it. Might as well do something you're proud of, and something that matters, because it's your gig.

 

Over time, the project world has changed. Thanks to digital tools, it's cheaper than ever to build and launch something based on content. Distribution is far faster and cheaper as well. We used to need a publishing partner or a partner with a platform (a record label, a media company...) to get the word out; now, in many cases, this adds time and hassle without creating sufficient benefit. Because it's easier to launch, we can spend more time focusing on what the audience wants, as opposed to merely pleasing (and pitching) the middleman. On the other hand, that makes it a lot harder to dig in and create, because there isn't that moment where someone says, "yep, I'll publish it..."

 

For me, the trick is not to represent the client, or the publisher, or the merchant. The trick is to represent the project, to speak up for the project, to turn it into what it needs to be. And over the years, I've found the each project gets just a little more personal than the one that came before....
