Jadomycins are unique angucycline polyketides produced by Streptomyces venezuelae soil bacteria under specific nutrient and environmental conditions. Their unique structural complexity and biological activities have engendered extensive study of the jadomycin class of natural compounds in terms of biological activity, biosynthesis, and synthesis.

Robin Good: If you are interested i understanding how most people utilize and move between the use of their smartphone or tablet, to their desktops or TV screens and viceversa, this elegantly illustrated feature by Google, will definitely provide you with some new insight and some relevant data.
"Today 90% of our media consumption occurs in front of a screen. As consumers balance their time between smartphones, tablets, PCs and Televisions, they are learning to use these devices together to achieve their goals."
"...some insights from our latest research:
-> 90% of consumers begin a task on one device and then complete it on another device.
-> Smartphones are by far the most common starting point for this sequential activity.
-> TV no longer commands our full attention.
-> TV strategy should be closely aligned and integrated with the marketing strategies for digital devices.
In essence: "While consumers are using more than one device simultaneously, content viewed on one device can trigger specific behavior on the other.

It's no surprise that social media consumes a good amount of our time, and it's perfectly fine when you have nothing else to do, but when you are at work its a big no-no.
This infographic illustrates just how distracting social media can be in the workforce. According to a study conducted by Microsoft, social media causes an average of four interruptions per hour. Also, over 40% of disrupted tasks were not immediately resumed.
So how much are all these interruptions going to cost the economy? A whopping $650 billion dollars a year is lost due to interruptions (aka Facebook).
It all makes sense though, with over 1 billion Facebook posts per day, 62 billion emails sent every day, and 400 million tweets per day, it's understandable why people are gettin distracted. Many businesses are taking matters into their own hands and blocking social sites on their networks so employees cannot view them. However, if you just unplug every once in a while and wait until after work to check your Facebook or Twitter, your productivity will increase and your boss will be happier...

Excerpted from article:
"Every day, thousands of new pages are created on Wikipedia, requiring hundreds of volunteer editors to check them for quality — a process called “New Page Patrol.” To help these patrollers do their important work, we are pleased to announce the launch of Page Curation, a new suite of tools for reviewing articles on Wikipedia.
Page Curation aims to improve that page patrol experience by making it faster and easier to review new pages, using two integrated tools:
1) New Pages Feed lets you quickly see what new pages have just been created on Wikipedia. Helpful information is provided for each new page, including possible issues and whether or not the page has been reviewed. The feed can be sorted by date, or filtered by a variety of criteria, so you can easily find articles to review by type, or even by user name.
A number of patrollers have already started using Page Curation, and we hope that more curators will adopt this new toolkit over time..."
