Journalism or Press Release? This Tool Will Tell

Journalism or Press Release? This Tool Will Tell | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Each day, we have to weigh the credibility of a piece of information and decide whether to put our faith in it.

The Sunlight Foundation has unveiled a tool that will help us all with this work. "The tool is, essentially, an open-source plagiarism detection engine," web developer Kaitlin Devine explained. It will scan any text (a news article, e.g.) and compare it with a corpus of press releases and Wikipedia entries. If it finds similar language, you'll get a notification of a detected "churn," and you'll be able to take a look at the two sources side by side.

Kids Who Do Chores Are More Successful Adults

Want your kids to grow up to be successful? Make them do chores. When they balk (and trust me: they will probably balk), you can tell them that scientific research supports you.

It sounds great, and it's true--but there is a catch. (We'll get to that in a minute.) For now, the science.

In the Harvard Grant Study, the longest running longitudinal study in history, (spanning 75 years and counting--from 1938 to the present), researchers identified two things that people need in order to be happy and successful:

The first? Love.

The second? Work ethic.

And what's the best way to develop work ethic in young people? Based on the experiences of the 724 high-achievers who were part of the study (including people like future-President Kennedy and Ben Bradlee, the Watergate-era editor of The Washington Post) there's a consensus.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 10, 12:21 AM
Encouraging kids to do chores will empower them for life as successful adults. We tend to pamper children, when we discouraged them from making an odd cup of tea, or perhaps empty their plates into the garbage can before placing them in the sink. Teaching children to wash their plates, lay the table, or even dust or tidy their rooms will go a long way in making them successful adults!

Emotional Intelligence Myth vs. Fact

Emotional Intelligence Myth vs. Fact | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
Is Emotional Intelligence the same as being “nice” or “polite”?

Does Emotional Intelligence just mean you have a lot of empathy?

Is Emotional Intelligence only for women or men who want to “get in touch with their sensitive side”?

After 20+ years of writing and speaking about the science behind Emotional Intelligence and its importance in work settings, I still come across people who believe one or more of these myths about EI. The author of a recent article in Scientific American fell into the “EI is just about empathy” trap. And an article in Harvard Business Review equated being nice with Emotional Intelligence. The assumption that Emotional Intelligence is related to a man’s “inner female” was raised in a comment to one of my posts about the Emotional Self-Awareness competency.

Each of these exemplify misleading stereotypes about Emotional Intelligence. And they equate one narrow slice of these abilities with the whole. But Emotional Intelligence is much more than just being empathic or nice.

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”

I selected this article from Curatti written by Ashley Faulkes because it explains the process of running a blog and then turning it into a business.

 

The story of how one blogger became a businessman.

 

Going From Blogger to Business Owner

 

Starting a blog can involve a lot of learning curves along the way. I agree that content marketers need to fully understand digital marketing in order to be successful in business.

 

Faulkes provides his own perspective on what it takes to run a successful blogging business.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Start by learning as much as you can from leading blogging experts. Then brush up on your digital marketing skills in areas like social media, SEO, and email marketing.

 

  • It is not enough to just have a blog. Your business needs to be running your content, not the other way around. If you lack skills you just need to learn more.

 

  • When attending a conference hang out with a few like-minded individuals who will push you to grow. Read as much as you can about the topic of blogging for business.

Intéressant point de vue sur la façon dont le «Like button» influence nos publications. Pour ma part, je ne pense pas qu'il ait lésé Internet, mais plutôt qu'il ait permis à davantage de monde de s'exprimer facilement. Les personnes réellement engagées continueront à commenter, à échanger sur le sujet. Les «likers» manifeste quant à eux simplement leur centre d'intérêt. Après, la question qui se pose est quelle valeur a ce Like, si on a l'habitude de liker tout ce qui bouge.


 


****
Interesting point of view. In my opinion, I don't think the like button has harmed the Internet, but I think that it has permits more people to easily give their point of view. People actually engaged still comment and discuss on the topic. The "likers" simply show their interest. Afterwards, the question that arises is what value has this Like, if it is used 1000 times a day, to like everything.

[PDF] The digital talent gap: Developing skills for today's digital organizations

[PDF] The digital talent gap: Developing skills for today's digital organizations | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
The shortage of digital skills in the current marketplace is unprecedented. It is estimated that over 4.4 million IT jobs will be created around Big Data by 2015; however, only a third of these new jobs will be filled. Martha Lane Fox, the UK’s digital inclusion champion, believes over 16 million people in the UK lack the basic digital skills to fully benefit from the Internet. Even Millenials are a matter of concern. In a survey comprising over 800 middle to upper management executives from over 50 industries, nearly one in five Millenials in the modern workplace are perceived to be lacking in analytical skills.
 
The reasons driving this skills shortage are not hard to identify. The usage of mobile, social and analytical tools is permeating the length and breadth of every function across the organization. Unlike the past, the impact of these digital technologies and tools is felt not just in the IT department. This means that the magnitude of training and re-skilling thatis required is enormous. Moreover, each new technology cycle has brought forth new requirements and these cycles are increasingly getting shorter. Employees must now refresh their skills more frequently if they wish to stay relevant in this rapidly changing digital environment. The head of India R&D Labs of software firm SAP succinctly states: “The shelf life of a software engineer today is no more than that of a cricketer – about 15 years. The 20-year-old guys provide me more value than the 35-year-olds do.
 
Organizations are beginning to recognize the magnitude of the problem. Our own research with the MIT Center for Digital Business has revealed that 77% of companies considered missing digital skills as the key hurdle to their digital transformation. Digital leaders or ‘Digirati’ a are already investing in digital skills and reaping significant benefits in comparison to other companies (see Figure 1). On average, ‘Digirati’ are
26% more profitable than their industry competitors.
 
This skills shortage is creating a ‘war for talent’, where companies have to compete for the best talent with new categories of players. Unlike in the past, the hunt for the best talent is no more limited to localized skills in certain departments. In this case, the talent war is manifest across the entire organization. The important questions are: Do organizations include digital skills as a key component in their workforce plans? Are HR departments equipped and skilled to bring innovative solutions to bridge the digital skills gap? How are Digiratis developing digital skills?

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, March 14, 8:21 AM
Team building games offer students fun opportunities to hone critical skills for success in the modern workplace. Students (and future employees!) that value teamwork are more motivated and creative. They’re also better at problem solving and communicating with one another and have a higher level of trust. We already know students love working in groups. Why not make a game of it?
Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, March 18, 12:10 AM
Critical thinking is the most important skill to develop, since in these times of information at hand, we cannot believe everything we see, read, and hear, and that is why it is important to develop this ability as it allows us to be alert and question everything that comes from these means of information. Is a skill that moves a student from concrete ideas to abstract and inferred concepts. Critical thinking allows us to analyze outcomes, compare ideas, identify parallels, sequence events, synthesize information and draw conclusions from a given body of knowledge. Whether it is the proof behind a mathematics formula or an implied tone in an essay, critical thinking skills enable students to solve problems in the real world and on exams in school. Meghan Moll (2014) suggests five tools to develop the critical thinking skills necessary for success on every high school or college test and assignment. 1. Brain games: Recently, websites dedicated to training your brain have enjoyed increased popularity. Lumosity, for example, provides games that aid in improving memory and problem-solving. From timed matching games to order sequence memorization, websites like this can aid in cognition and the ability to ask, "What is the next step?" This skill is critical to learning how to approach complex problems on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. Rather than playing time-wasting games when you have a lull in your day, search online for brain teasers and peruse the plethora of brain games at your fingertips. 2. Logic puzzles: Before the Internet, puzzles intended to exercise your brain were published in books. Collections of crossword puzzles, logic problems, riddles, sudoku, word problems and word searches can be found at your local bookstore or library. The puzzles in these books are a wonderful strategy to activate different parts of your brain for a round or two of mental gymnastics, and many collections even discuss what each puzzle is meant to target within the mind. 3. Board games: This suggestion may seem strange at first, but do not balk. Choose board games that require more than luck – namely, strategy – for players to win. Any game where players must carefully consider their next move, recognize patterns and remember details will aid in honing critical thinking skills. Certain games like Rubik’s Cube are single-player, while others involve multiple people. Checkers, chess and Mastermind are two-player games that challenge you to plan several steps ahead. Games like Boggle and Scrabble require analyzing information quickly and formulating words, while Clue and Risk test and strengthen your ability to anticipate and react to others’ moves, as well as infer motives. 4. Journaling: Daily reflection – such as maintaining a journal – is a simple way to revisit your day, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to explore ideas. Writing encourages you to expand upon your thoughts and form connections. A journal forces you to slow down and focus on just one or two ideas at a time, which hectic schedules don't otherwise allow. Use your journal to record important ideas and questions and narratives about your life. 5. Book clubs: Students who read for understanding find it far easier to think critically than those who rush to finish. Analyzing a book requires you to delve deeper and ponder complex questions. When reading, think about why the book was written the way it was, what motivates certain characters, and how plot developments may be symbols of foreshadowing. Locate a book club to hone these skills. You will read works you otherwise may not have, and you will learn to examine character development, plot, symbolism and a whole host of other features.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it helps you improve your visual marketing with shareable infographics.

 

Visual graphics can be both fun and informative for your niche audience.

 

Create Infographics That Grow Your Following Online

 

People are drawn to appealing content that grabs their attention right away. I agree that infographics can help attract more subscribers and followers.

 

Gilbert shows you how to create graphics that audiences are more willing to share.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Find out what is on the minds of your target market the most before designing your infographic. Make sure the content is both timely and relevant.

 

  • Focus on a specific group inside your niche and appeal to their pressing problems and needs. Make good on what your title promises to them.

 

  • If you have a study or a lot of data put it into a fun infographic. This is a great way to turn boring content into something interesting.

From timed matching games to order sequence memorization, websites like this can aid in cognition and the ability to ask, "What is the next step?" This skill is critical to learning how to approach complex problems on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. Rather than playing time-wasting games when you have a lull in your day, search online for brain teasers and peruse the plethora of brain games at your fingertips. 2. Logic puzzles: Before the Internet, puzzles intended to exercise your brain were published in books. Collections of crossword puzzles, logic problems, riddles, sudoku, word problems and word searches can be found at your local bookstore or library. The puzzles in these books are a wonderful strategy to activate different parts of your brain for a round or two of mental gymnastics, and many collections even discuss what each puzzle is meant to target within the mind. 3. Board games: This suggestion may seem strange at first, but do not balk. Choose board games that require more than luck – namely, strategy – for players to win. Any game where players must carefully consider their next move, recognize patterns and remember details will aid in honing critical thinking skills. Certain games like Rubik’s Cube are single-player, while others involve multiple people. Checkers, chess and Mastermind are two-player games that challenge you to plan several steps ahead. Games like Boggle and Scrabble require analyzing information quickly and formulating words, while Clue and Risk test and strengthen your ability to anticipate and react to others’ moves, as well as infer motives. 4. Journaling: Daily reflection – such as maintaining a journal – is a simple way to revisit your day, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to explore ideas. Writing encourages you to expand upon your thoughts and form connections. A journal forces you to slow down and focus on just one or two ideas at a time, which hectic schedules don't otherwise allow. Use your journal to record important ideas and questions and narratives about your life. 5. Book clubs: Students who read for understanding find it far easier to think critically than those who rush to finish. Analyzing a book requires you to delve deeper and ponder complex questions. When reading, think about why the book was written the way it was, what motivates certain characters, and how plot developments may be symbols of foreshadowing. Locate a book club to hone these skills. You will read works you otherwise may not have, and you will learn to examine character development, plot, symbolism and a whole host of other features.

Most people concentrate on blockchain in the context of currency, but there are many other possible uses, such as identity management. Any way you look at it, however, this genie is out of the bottle, and has the potential to be bigger than the Internet.
