"All week, I participated in a discussion about Stephen King. And I cannot believe the number of people who were bashing the guy. He has written 50 books–EVERY ONE OF THEM A BESTSELLER. Best guestimates are he brings in at least 40 million a year. And when he can write a book like 11/22/63 that can move me to melancholy for the better part of a day AND a week later still has me thinking about it, then I say the whole lot are out to lunch, jealous, little people of no concern. This man is a great story teller. He HAS to be, to accomplish what he has done."

North Carolina mom sentenced to jail for baptizing her own daughter: ‘I’m scared…’

North Carolina mom sentenced to jail for baptizing her own daughter: ‘I’m scared…’ | Culture in the States | Scoop.it
You read that headline correctly. A North Carolina mother was sentenced to seven days in jail this week for baptizing her own daughter.

Woah, what??
According to the Charlotte Observer, Kendra Stocks reported to the Mecklenburg County jail on Friday to begin her seven-day sentence after being held in contempt of court. The Observer described the matter as "a head-on collision between matters of church and state."

The reason for Stocks' jailing? Because she baptized her daughter without the consent of the father, Paul Schaaf.

The case goes all the back to August 2016 when a judge granted Schaaf full-custody of the young girl. That meant Schaaf got the final-say on decisions concerning religion. But just one day after the judge's decision, Stocks had her daughter baptized in private — without telling Schaaf.

Schaaf only learned about the baptism after he saw pictures on Facebook, according to WSOC-TV. He then lodged a complaint against Stocks.

Pallab Kakoti's curator insight, July 4, 2014 5:31 PM

The use of social media platforms by sales people to generate leads and convert them into successful B2B conversions to generate revenue is summed as the concept of social selling. It’s an approach that leverages the use of various social media tools to filter targeted information based on locations, business verticals & social media profiles. The process enables sales professionals to post social updates, tweets & messages on the social media domain from their personal accounts to build their credibility as industry experts.

Some may see conversion as an online transaction, others as a sign up or an upgrade to a paid plan. Conversion objectives vary and are therefore crucial to define the attributes for different referrers & social networks. Determine the original referrer as the first touch attribution where they first heard & saw the social content or was it the referrer of the visit where the story was seen and where the actual conversion occurred as the last touch attribution.
