Good tools can help deal with the overwhelm in content management. I find it helps to capture content at the point when you read. If not, it is typically lost forever in the fast moving internet.

We're all like @Brian Fanzo running out of time and trying to have more impact. These are great ways to save time on content sourcing which should help:

- your social media efforts by finding content to engage your audience,

- your content marketing efforts through value-adding content curation,

- your content creation efforts by informing your creative process (hint: you should write what these tools don't find as nobody wrote it yet).


Bonus benefit: if you start sharing with your team, it will also ensure everybody's more aligned and in sync with your industry.

There is a lot of good practices here to implement. I had to read it three times to absorb just half of it. I'm a slow learner, but if you need to put some gas in your Content Curation to boost your numbers of readers then this list will help. I have a few days or weeks ahead of me to put this all into action.

FAA's drone restrictions lead to new lawsuits from universities and business groups

FAA's drone restrictions lead to new lawsuits from universities and business groups | Unmanned Aerial Systems | Scoop.it
The FAA is trying to crack down on consumer drones, but it’s on shaky legal ground. Three new lawsuits from business owners, universities and the Academy of Model Aeronautics highlight its tenuous position.

. . . 

n administrative judge has already overturned the FAA’s attempt to fine a photographer $10,000, citing the agency’s lack of legal authority to impose it. The FAA’s June “guidelines” appear to suffer from the same problem — the agency issued them without the backing of a formal rule-making process.

. . . 

Meanwhile, stories about drones — good and bad — continue to be popular news items. This summer, for instance, a drone operator was hailed as a hero for using his drone to help a search and rescue team locate a missing 82-year-old man. Less popular was a tourist who crashed his drone into an iconic hot spring in Yellowstone National Park, and then asked to retrieve it.

Epic is a word that gets thrown around way too often, but in the case of Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests it is justified. Yesterday, Facebook user "Nero Chan" captured on camera 100,000 people standing up against China for their right to a representative government. His edited footage on Facebook already has over 800,000 views, and a longer, music-free version on Youtube has more than 225,000 views.

Eye in the sky now in reach of farmers

Eye in the sky now in reach of farmers | Unmanned Aerial Systems | Scoop.it

Drones can give you the big picture of a field, a small one of seed row spacing, or even check on the cowsWant a bird’s-eye view of your crop, find stray steers, or safely monitor a cow calving on pasture?It’s getting easier and cheaper to do with a wide array of drones on the market, says Rejean Picard, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development’s (MAFRD) farm production adviser in Somerset.Once almost exclusively used by soldiers and spies, drones could be the next new agricultural innovation to “take off” — pun intended.Picard is experimenting this summer with a camera-equipped ’copter drone.“I think it will become a pretty useful unit,” for both farmers and crop consultants,” he said during an MAFRD webinar June 12. “Because it’s not necessarily a very high cost and it can be used right through the whole season I think it has some really good potential.”In an interview later Picard said drones won’t eliminate the need for farmers to walk their fields.“It provides a good first overview that can identify areas that need closer attention,” he said.Drones start at less than $1,000 and go up to tens of thousands of dollars.More expensive fixed-wing drones can be programmed to fly over a specific area and have geo-referencing software and can take near-infrared (NIR) images, used to assess vegetative growth. But in many applications drones are cheaper than hiring a manned aircraft or buying satellite images, Picard said. More expensive drones can be used to map fields, assess crop development and compare against maps generated by combine yield monitors.The four-propeller, battery-powered DGI Phantom 2 drone Picard flies costs around $700, but adding a gimbal (a pivoted support that allows the rotation of an object about a single axis) and GroPro still and video camera brought the price to $2,500. It also includes a seven-inch screen that allows the pilot to see live what the camera sees. Picard said that helps because once the drone gets farther away, it’s hard to know if it’s flying towards or away from the pilot.From the Grainews website: Robots take to the field Easy to manoeuvreThe ’copter drone is relatively easy to manoeuvre and can fly several hundred feet high or inches from the ground. It can also hover — a nice feature when the operator wants to take a close look at a part of the field.“It can hover a couple of feet off the ground, take a picture and then you can upload it to your computer,” Picard said. “I think you could even do plant counts if you know the seed row spacing.”Flying the drone takes practice, he said. Picard has had a couple of rough landings resulting in damaged propellers, but they are relatively inexpensive to replace.Picard’s ’copter drone has GPS and a compass, which he said helps keep it stable, even under relatively windy conditions.The 12-megapixel GroPro camera can look forward or straight down. While the wide-angle lens captures a big area, it also distorts the view, making it difficult to piece pictures of a field together to get a composite view.Crop monitoring and assessment are the obvious uses for drones.“It can be used for scouting various stages of the crop at various heights,” Picard said. “A crop like canola at full flower is hard to walk through. The same with corn or sunflowers when they get much taller. Then you can hardly see beyond the first few rows so this would potentially give us access to see the whole field and even parts of the field because we can hover down to those areas. It could help us identify areas of concern or damage from hail, spray drift, diseases or insects.”Hail damage is often difficult to assess from the ground, but an aerial view provides “the big picture.”It’s a quick way to check a crop and it’s non-invasive — something of increasing importance as farmers try to keep visitors from introducing pests to their land.Aerial pictures also provide a historical record of a field.Picard’s ’copter can fly for 20 to 25 minutes up to 1.3 kilometres from the operator.Crop scouting is an obvious use for drones, but it’s not hard to think of more, including checking cows and fences.“If a cow was having a calf (on pasture) you could check what’s going on without disturbing the whole herd,” Picard said. “There’s an element of safety. You never know when an animal (during birthing) will turn on you. It’s one less time you’d have to be exposed to that risk.”In addition to being a useful tool, there’s no denying it’s also fun to fly the drone, he said.“I expect drones could turn up on a lot of farmers’ Christmas wish lists this year.”No licences are required to operate recreational drones, which presumably would include those farmers would fly on their own property, according to information posted on the federal Office of the Privacy Commissioner’s website. However, drones, or unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) operated for civil or commercial purposes are only authorized to fly with a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) issued by Transport Canada.“Canada’s privacy laws will, and do apply to UAVs deployed by public or private-sector organizations to collect and/or use personal information about citizens,” the website says.RESPONDName (required)

Police use drones to help clear traffic accidents

Police use drones to help clear traffic accidents | Unmanned Aerial Systems | Scoop.it

High-tech drones have entered the modern lexicon. Hobbyists are playing with small toy versions. Pilots are complaining about them entering their airspace, putting commercial jets at risk. Even e-commerce giant Amazon is trying to figure out how to use drones to make deliveries.

But the drones, made by Aeryon Labs Inc. in a small facility in north Waterloo, are the high-end version used by military, companies and police forces, with the aim of being easy to use, with simple training.

With a price tag ranging from $65,000 up to $120,000, depending on the bells and whistles, they are considered critical equipment for investigators, researchers and soldiers alike.

Drones Are Being Tested in the Fight Against a Tuberculosis

Drones Are Being Tested in the Fight Against a Tuberculosis | Unmanned Aerial Systems | Scoop.it
The centuries-old disease is crippling communities in one of the world's most untamed wildernesses. Now unmanned aerial vehicles could bring treatment to the country's far-flung reaches.

Drones have been trialled by Medecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to combat a centuries-old disease that has crippled communities in one of the most untamed wildernesses on earth.

Papua New Guinea is experiencing an epidemic rate of a disease that most Western countries overcame long ago. Tuberculosis (TB) kills one Papua New Guinean every two hours, and with 15,000 new infections a year, health authorities are struggling to contain the disease as it rages through the remote reaches of the island nation.
