this article was about bumblebees brains and how quickly they learn which routes are the most efficient ones to take so they use less energy getting nectar.

 

i didn't know that bees could learn quickly

The Complete Guide to Global Social Media Marketing | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

Social media is a great way to connect with your audience and have a two-way conversation. But it can be easy to forget that not everyone who finds your social media pages will speak your language, or be able to relate to your region’s latest trends.

The Social Economy: Unlocking Value and Productivity Through Social Technologies

The Social Economy: Unlocking Value and Productivity Through Social Technologies | Social Mercor | Scoop.it
The Social Economy: Unlocking Value and Productivity Through Social Technologies
- McKinsey Global Institute (MGI).
- Summarized for you by John Twohig

 

This report shows what a tremendous advantages social technologies can bring to businesses:

Product Development
- Co-Create Products
- Derive Customer Insights

 

Operations and Distribution
- Leverage social to forecast and monitor
- Use social to distribute business processes

 

Sales and Marketing
- Derive customer insights
- Use social technologies for marketing, communication and interaction
- Generate and foster sales leads
- Social commerce

 

Customer service
- Provide customer care via social platforms
- Enterprise wide levers, social as organisational technology
- Use social technology to improve intra-or-inter organisational collaboration and communication
- Use social technology to match talent to tasks

 

Reading that list you would wonder how the hell companies are dithering, the whole business cycle can now be effectively carried out via social technologies across all sectors of enterprise, both inside and outside the organisations.

 

The following are examples of social collaboration for business:

 

Cost reduction
- Working from home
- Social platform-based resource center for business critical

 

documents and knowledge sharing
- Sharing document with clients in the development stage of a project, saving turnaround time

Eliminate emails

Forecasting Market Demands

...

 

Conclusion
Businesses large and small can benefit from the disruptive influence of social technology. This report leaves you in no doubt about that. The savings to business across the four sectors MGI have covered in this report is put at between $900 Billion and $1.3 Trillion per year if the Social Business Model (SBM) is adopted. It is the ROI of online and as the Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts said some time ago, if you don’t have an SBM you will not have a business in five years.

 

This post is only skimming the report, there are also examples of how social is saving lives, helping people stay safe in Hurricanes. I will cover that in more detail at a later date. Can CEO’s and the C-Suite in general continue to ignore the Social Platforms and the Social Business Model? On the evidence of this report I don’t believe so, come join the most disruptive technology in the worlds history, sure mistakes will be made, but isn’t that part of the fun?

New material may replace silicon - Norwegian researchers make semiconductors from graphene

New material may replace silicon - Norwegian researchers make semiconductors from graphene | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

The method involves growing semiconductor-nanowires on graphene. To achieve this, researchers “bomb” the graphene surface with gallium atoms and arsenic molecules, thereby creating a network of minute nanowires. The result is a one-micrometre thick hybrid material which acts as a semiconductor. By comparison, the silicon semiconductors in use today are several hundred times thicker. The semiconductors’ ability to conduct electricity may be affected by temperature, light or the addition of other atoms.

 

Graphene is the thinnest material known, and at the same time one of the strongest. It consists of a single layer of carbon atoms and is both pliable and transparent. The material conducts electricity and heat very effectively. And perhaps most importantly, it is very inexpensive to produce.

 

“Given that it’s possible to make semiconductors out of graphene instead of silicon, we can make semiconductor components that are both cheaper and more effective than the ones currently on the market,” explains Helge Weman of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Dr Weman is behind the breakthrough discovery along with Professor Bjørn-Ove Fimland.

 

“A material comprising a pliable base that is also transparent opens up a world of opportunities, one we have barely touched the surface of,” says Dr Weman. “This may bring about a revolution in the production of solar cells and LED components. Windows in traditional houses could double as solar panels or a TV screen. Mobile phone screens could be wrapped around the wrist like a watch. In short, the potential is tremendous.”

Three parents, one baby -- Ethnic debate over 'three-person in-vitro fertilization (IVF)'

Three parents, one baby -- Ethnic debate over 'three-person in-vitro fertilization (IVF)' | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

The technique could be used to prevent debilitating and fatal "mitochondrial" diseases, which are passed down only from mother to child. However, the resulting baby would contain genetic information from three people - two parents and a donor woman. Ministers could change the law to make the technique legal after the results of the consultation are known.

 

About one in 200 children are born with faulty mitochondria - the tiny power stations which provide energy to every cell in the body. Most show little or no symptoms, but in the severest cases the cells of the body are starved of energy. It can lead to muscle weakness, blindness, heart failure and in some cases can be fatal. Mitochondria are passed on from the mother's egg to the child - the father does not pass on mitochondria through his sperm. The idea to prevent this is to add a healthy woman's mitochondria into the mix.

 

Two main techniques have been shown to work in the laboratory, by using a donor embryo or a donor egg. However, mitochondria contain their own genes in their own set of DNA. It means any babies produced would contain genetic material from three people. The vast majority would come from the mother and father, but also mitochondrial DNA from the donor woman.

This would be a permanent form of genetic modification, which would be passed down through the generations.

10 Inspiring Quotes From Mashable's Social Good Summit - Transition into the Networked World!

10 Inspiring Quotes From Mashable's Social Good Summit - Transition into the Networked World! | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

@ eco-Nable [Social Good Summit]: 10 Inspiring Quotes From Mashable's Social Good Summit

Transition into the Networked World!
 

The Social Good Summit hosted dozens of professionals who all had something to say about social good.

Mashable‘s three-day Social Good Summit united global leaders and innovators to speak about how technology can grow and improve our lives as we transition into a networked world.

From Sept. 22-24 we brought you live video, tweets and updates on the dialogues of professionals and activists:

1. Mira Sorvino
“More is spent in a single month [in the U.S.] fighting the war on drugs than all monies ever expended domestically or internationally fighting slavery from its inception. Per month, we spend more on the drug war than we ever have trying to free slaves.” — Mira Sorvino, actress and U.N. goodwill ambassador


2. Forest Whitaker
“We have to not just open our eyes to what’s going on in other places; we need to open our eyes to what’s going on right in front of us.” —Forest Whitaker, artist and UNESCO goodwill ambassador

 

3. Brooke Loughrin
“Water issues are directly connected to women’s issues. When I was working in India, I met girls who said, 'I’d love to go to school, but I spend four to five hours a day looking for water.'" — Brooke Loughrin, U.S. youth observer for the United Nations

 

4. John Nesbit
“Ninety percent of the world’s population is covered by a mobile signal. Fifty percent of people in sub-saharan Africa own cellphones — there’s more on the African continent than in the U.S.” — John Nesbit, CEO of Medic Mobile

 

5. Joe Trippi
“If you knew how much information the campaigns had on you, you’d turn off your machines. And I mean that literally.” — Joe Trippi, political strategist

 

6. Claire Diaz-Ortiz
“You always hear the phrase ‘advocacy starts at home.’ In reality, with all the power we have to connect, it really means at home — where you’re sitting. It’s about doing what you can from where you are. We’re fortunate to have these tools to let you distill your message to make sure you’re getting out what you want to say and create a call to action.” — Claire Diaz-Ortiz, lead social innovator at Twitter

 

7. Jimmy Wales

“The Internet is allowing for us to really experience people in some of the most distant places in the world — as other people just like us. So get to know people, seek out bloggers from a country you’re kind of curious about. It’s about building empathy and breaking through to the point of recognizing people as people.” — Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia

 

8. Hillary Clinton
"We are living at a moment when anyone can be a diplomat. All you have to do is hit SEND." — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

 

9. Todd Park
“It’s about turning government into a platform for open innovation. Data by itself is useless. I can’t feed my baby daughter data, as much as I’d love to, because I love data. It’s only useful if you apply it to create an actual public benefit.” — Todd Park, U.S. chief technology officer

 

 

10. Nicholas Kristof
“One thing the humanitarian world doesn’t do well is marketing. As a journalist, I get pitched every day by companies that have new products. Meanwhile, you have issues like clean water, literacy for girls, female empowerment. People flinch at the idea of marketing these because marketing sounds like something only companies do.” — Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist
