UCLA researchers discover that the sleeping brain behaves as if it's remembering something

UCLA researchers discover that the sleeping brain behaves as if it's remembering something | academia and research | Scoop.it

UCLA researchers have for the first time measured the activity of a brain region known to be involved in learning, memory and Alzheimer's disease during sleep. They discovered that this part of the brain behaves as if it's remembering something, even under anesthesia, a finding that counters conventional theories about memory consolidation during sleep.

Escape From Economics

Escape From Economics | academia and research | Scoop.it

The problem with reading a book to learn economics that is taught in the universities and practiced in Washington is that economics is now a highly formalized subject based on abstract models and assumptions and has been mathematized.

How Social Media Can Affect Your B2B Lead Generation [INFOGRAPHIC] | Business 2 Community | academia and research | Scoop.it

Many people think that b2b lead generation is leagues away in terms of helpfulness with regards to social media.

 

With this infographic that has given to use by Online MBA, there has been a recorded 66% percent of online users that are connected to at least one social media platform on the World Wide Web.

 

The use of these websites have steadily increased over the past 10 years in either personal or business reasons.


But the question is, who are the 66%?

4 Myths of Social Media Marketing

4 Myths of Social Media Marketing | academia and research | Scoop.it

"Social media marketing is the shiny new toy. Businesses were provided tools that they could use themselves to promote their business.

 

Coca Cola changed its marketing strategy from creative excellence to content excellence.

They had realized that social media was able to spread their content and ideas with velocity and the crowd could create and share more stories on social networks than they could ever hope to buy.

 

The democratization of marketing was now evident.

 

Here the 4 Myths of Social Media Marketing:

 

Myth #1. It’s Simple

There are many myths about social media marketing but the biggest one by far is that it is easy and can be done by an intern at lunch time.

 

Myth #2. It’s Free

Planning , creating content, optimizing for search, publishing to multiple platforms takes time. Time is money.

 

Enterprise class tools are not free. Participating on Facebook may cost nothing and tweeting is free but the content and eco-sytem to support a sustained social media marketing effort requires budget and commitment. Professional videos still cost money to produce and edit.

 

 

Myth #3. It’s Just Facebook

Many organisations think that because Facebook dominates the social media numbers game with nearly one billion users, that it is the only social media network to consider in a social media marketing strategy.

Facebook only allows less than 15% of your updates to appear in your Facebook followers timelines through its “Edge Rank” algorithms.

 

 

Myth #4. Social Media is the “Silver Bullet”

Social media is not your marketing saviour.

Remember to continue to optimize your online properties for search engines.

 

Being found on Google is still a “must do”. If you aren’t doing this then you need to reconsider some of your marketing budget priorities. Social media marketing advertising is still only $5 billion and search engine marketing spend is 10 times larger at $50 billiuon plus because it works".

Pam Warhurst: How we can eat our landscapes | Video on TED.com #vegetabletourism!

TED Talks What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course.

http://www.ted.com/talks/pam_warhurst_how_we_can_eat_our_landscapes.html ;

What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course. With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells at the TEDSalon the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community.

Pam Warhurst cofounded Incredible Edible, an initiative in Todmorden, England dedicated to growing food locally by planting on unused land throughout the community. Full bio »

  There's so many people that don't really recognize a vegetable unless it's in a bit of plastic with an instruction packet on the top.” (Pam Warhurst)
