Presentation Slide Design - Stop Animations Spoiling Your Presentation | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it

PowerPoint, Keynote, and Skyrocket can create some great visual aids.  Sadly, many presenters have never been taught the principles of presentation slide design.

Generally, the best answer is NO ANIMATIONS.  And almost never any of the sound effects.  More on this on Monday...

A lot are nurses, teachers and construction workers, according to LinkedIn data, who are in high demand elsewhere in the country, says Guy Berger, Linkedin's chief economist.The thing about these three professions is that people in them are usually the last people to leave a town or city, simply because their jobs tend to be the most in demand and therefore the most stable, Berger tells Axios.

It’s Time to Optimize for Google As a Recommendation Engine

It’s Time to Optimize for Google As a Recommendation Engine | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
Ask anyone what Google is and the most likely answer will be that it’s a search engine, which is pretty hard to argue with. The tech giant’s most important platform is called Google Search, where people type in queries and get search results in return.

Pretty conclusive stuff.

Except the nature of search is drastically changing, as Google further integrates machine learning and artificial intelligence into everything it does. We now get personalised search results based on our location, user history and content preferences. We get content recommendations popping up on our phones and alerts for the latest news, sports results and travel updates.

The further Google develops its technology, the less we find ourselves searching. Instead, Google is becoming more of a recommendation engine than a search platform – and marketers need to start optimising for this now.

Sea otter population declines slightly off California coast

Sea otter population declines slightly off California coast | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
The number of sea otters swimming off the California coast this year dwindled by 86 from last year, a 3 percent decline in the animal's population, according to a census released by federal sea otter nose counters.

Hungry sharks, skimpy kelp cover, algae blooms and disease are combining to keep the otters from staging a comeback to population numbers before fur traders practically drove them to extinction in the 19th century.

According to data released Friday by the U.S. Geological Survey, there were 3,186 southern sea otters paddling the Pacific off California.
