Stephen Dale I've been following Dion Hinchcliffe for many years as well. You're fortunate to have met him in London. You bring up a very good point about monitoring our every move. As you say, there is a price we will pay one way or another for privacy and time will tell how this will all shake out in the end. I'd love to connect with you again, it's been a while. As you can see I launched Curatti and we've been very well received. Hope things are going well with you, let's catch up soon.

Sound good Jan. I have been following Curatti since you launched - it's one of my top sources for news/content. Think we should arrange a Skype call sometime - unless you plan to visit London, in which case lunch is on me!

Before you start your innovation project, your 20time, your Idea Farming, you are going to watch this video. BEFORE you watch the video have students take out paper and pen so that you don’t ruin the mood after the video with five minutes of students searching for paper.

Science Says You Shouldn't Work More Than This Number of Hours a Week

Science Says You Shouldn't Work More Than This Number of Hours a Week | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Do you work more than 40 hours a week? If you're an entrepreneur or small business owner, it's hard not to, but all that extra time in the workplace isn't necessarily a good thing. After a certain point, it can be counterproductive and even hazardous to your health, so it's imperative to know when to say no to more hours. 

 

Various organizations and independent researchers have looked at the physical, mental, emotional, and social effects of working beyond the standard 40 hours a week. Notable findings include the following:

Working more than 10 hours a day is associated with a 60 percent jump in risk of cardiovascular issues.10 percent of those working 50 to 60 hours report relationship problems; the rate increases to 30 percent for those working more than 60 hours.Working more than 40 hours a week is associated with increased alcohol and tobacco consumption, as well as unhealthy weight gain in men and depression in women.

In order to comply with the impending DOL overtime rule change, business owners are going to have to start carefully tracking employee hours. Compliance isn't optional ... and could present a major upheaval, depending on your industry.

 

Turns out, there might be a silver lining in restricting employee hours. According to research sourced by Inc., workers who put in more than 40 hours per week are not only less productive, but also at greater risk for a host of stress-related illnesses.

 

Keep headaches at bay, for both business owners and their employees, by implementing a time and money saving system for monitoring regular and overtime hours.

How to Use Short Videos for Brand Marketing — Medium

How to Use Short Videos for Brand Marketing — Medium | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
Without ever getting into YouTube, you can do short videos on several social media sites. On Vine, they last six seconds, Instagram they are 15 seconds, and on Google+, LinkedIn, and Facebook the videos can be as long as 2–3 minutes. Once videos are created, they can also be pinned on Pinterest.


You don’t need expensive camera equipment, though it will add to the quality if you do use something different than you smartphone camera. It should do a decent job until you have the funds to invest in something better. Short videos are like a dessert or snack, just enough to satisfy and not so much that in the middle you’ve had enough and are trying to figure out how to end it sooner rather than later. And getting the story or information visually is almost always preferred to reading about it.

Your Startup's Pitch Needs Only These 10 Slides - Marketing and Entrepreneurship - Medium
Guy Kawasaki shares the layout for a perfect pitch.
Pitching your startup to investors just might be the most nerve-wracking aspect of starting your new business — well, besides the prospect of losing your shirt.


I get it. The last thing you want to do when you’re sleep-deprived and edgy and suffering startup angst is pitch it over… and over… and over again. It’s actually a pretty helpless feeling, asking strangers to decide on the fate of your new venture. If it’s your first or second venture, there can be a real learning curve, too. It takes time and feedback to get it right.
Presentation guru Guy Kawasaki has put together an infographic that can help make your pitch both more effective and less painful....

6 of the best web tools for creating Digital Portfolios | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
Digital portfolios are an important part of the learning process that takes place in class. The pedagogic importance of digital portfolios is well documented in the teaching literature. Students use them for a variety of educational purposes such as to document their learning, showcase their academic accomplishments, reflect on the learning process, develop self-assessment skills. Digital portfolios are also an essential source of learning meta-data that teachers can use to evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching methodologies. Based on insights gleaned from students portfolios, teachers can re-purpose their courses and curriculum design in such a way that targets students emerging needs.
