The 10 Laws of Visual Content Marketing - Updated  | Noticias generales | Scoop.it
When we published the new laws of visual content in March 2015, brands were just waking up to the power of visual content. Unfortunately, far too many good brands were getting it wrong. Yes, they were experimenting and learning through trial and error, but we wanted to remove the guesswork. So, we put together the …

Objectives of the call

As part of the project “Smart Factories in new EU Member States” the European Commission is looking for organisations to take on the role of a “Digital Innovation Hub” (DIH) in EU13 Member States . At least 30 DIHs from 8 countries will be selected to take part in a training programme, which will be managed by PwC and Oxford University Innovation (Oxentia).   

The DIHs should, after having gone through the training programme, be an important pillar for the digitisation of the industry in the selected countries and regions, where at the moment companies (especially those from traditional industrial sectors and SMEs) are investing less in digital technologies than in other parts of Europe or in other sectors.
 

Why apply?

The 30 DIHs that will be selected will participate in a programme which will help them to (further) develop their business plan. The programme will provide training, workshops and mentoring on business development skills and on sustainable activities (including identification of funding opportunities). It will be based on best practices identified by other Digital Innovation Hubs in Europe capitalising on PwC and Oxford University’s state-of-the-art knowledge and experience.

How Eratosthenes calculated the Earth's circumference

"In the mid-20th century we began launching satellites into space that would help us determine the exact circumference of the Earth: 40,030 km. But over 2000 years earlier, a man in Ancient Greece came up with nearly the exact same figure using just a stick and his brain."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 1, 2016 1:19 PM

Eratosthenes is often referred to as the "father of geography" for creating meridians and parallels on his maps to organize global information, classifying climatic zones, and as shown in the video, calculating the circumference of the Earth. Plus, he coined the terms so he gets the credit. If you have never pondered the meaning of the word "geometry," the accomplishments of Eratosthenes will certainly show that the mathematical prowess was at the heart of expanding our collective geographic knowledge (additionally, here is a retro Carl Sagan in a video clip from Cosmos that inspired this clip).

Geographic Calibrations

Geographic Calibrations | Noticias generales | Scoop.it

"Occasionally we need to be reminded that the concepts of distance and area are important to the day-to-day understanding of breaking news stories, as well as many of our daily personal decisions. Although modern communications and transportation have reduced the roles of distance and area in some activities, by no means has it eliminated the utility of these concepts."

We tend to forget how easy it is to compare the sizes and distances, especially when considering the move form 3D to 2D. Something to consider when reading and interpreting maps.

Jason Wilhelm's curator insight, May 22, 2014 12:35 PM

A central theme of geography is place and the spacial organization of it. The USA is an extremely large area and its citizens often don't recognize this fact. Manifest destiny was a concept that stated that it was an American's duty to expand into the frontier to further the dominion of the American government. This imperialistic tendency ended when the US reached the Atlantic Ocean, but the land conquered was vast. Many countries in the world can fit many times over into the continental United States, but the citizens of the states take this fact for granted. This article serves as a needed reminder of this fact, and helps people put America's spacial consumption into perspective.

Zavier Lineberger's curator insight, March 29, 3:38 PM
(Middle East) Using modern technology, archaeologists have discovered a new monument hidden underground in Petra. The find, dated around 150 B.C., is thought to be a ceremonial site with two platforms, pottery. columns, and a staircase carved out of stone. It is amazing that there are still new finds like this in the 21st century, but the history of the Middle East is so incredibly old, with so many extinct civilizations, that archaeologists will probably keep making new breakthroughs.

WHAT MEPs GET IN SALARY AND EXPENSES

Jon Olaizola's insight:

Parliamentarians cost a total of € 781 million paid by 500 million EU citizens. In the 28 EU countries, a total of 8,336 parliamentarians are discharging their parliamentary mandate: 7,584 parliamentarians in the national parliaments of their respective countries and now 751 MEPs in the Strasbourg EU Parliament. Taking their salaries as a base, parliamentarians cost a total of € 781 million paid by 500 million EU citizens – overall €  620 million in their national parliaments plus  € 160 million per year for the EU Parliament.

An average monthly salary and other allowances of € 17,827 is received by an MEP equal to € 213,924 a year including base salary and additional extras such as allowances, attendance fees and travel expenses. In addition, the costs for offices and staff for the plenary members of the European Parliament make up an amount of up to €  21,209 per month or up to € 254,508  per year.

One MEP comes into receiving € 1,069,622  during the 5-year legislative session adding up outlined allowances . This amount, taken as a basis, means that a parliamentarian in the European Parliament meanwhile earns 878 percent more than a normal citizens (€ 21,844 gross per year) – Euro crisis aside.

Reviews for highway projects took an average of two years in the 1970s; by 2011, they were up to eight years. The 1956 law authorizing the interstate highway system was 29 pages. Thelaw remaking the welfare system in 1996 was 251 pages. In this new century, statutes run a thousand pages or longer. The Volcker Rule to regulate proprietary trading — just one part of the massive Dodd-Frank law — is more than 950 pages.
