Impact Of Social Media on Travel And Hospitality | INFOGRAPHIC

Impact Of Social Media on Travel And Hospitality | INFOGRAPHIC | Nov@ | Scoop.it

Social media has had a huge impact on every industry and travel is not excluded. The role of social media now plays a key part in the consumers travel experience; from how they research and book their holiday, on-going engagement while they're travelling to post review.

 

The Travel and Tourism Industry depends heavily on word-of-mouth and the spread of opinions-social networks provide the perfect platform to do this. 

 

Social networking is one of the most powerful forces driving Travel Planning today (PhocusWright), failure to adopt could be fatal.

Working Out Doesn’t Just Make You Stronger, It Makes You Smarter

Working Out Doesn’t Just Make You Stronger, It Makes You Smarter | Nov@ | Scoop.it
We already know the facts: Our country is in the midst of an obesity epidemic. Few American adults exercise enough, and that poor lifestyle choice is getting handed down to our children, who are getting fat at record levels.

 

And all that obesity is affecting our health, causing heart disease, diabetes, and untold other health consequences. But what if the effects aren’t only mental?

 

This new infographic, from OnlineCollegeCourses.com points out that exercise has some great benefits for not just how our body works, but how our brains work, too. It’s clearly important for kids, who need all the brain power they can get for school, but it’s equally important for adults: A fit worker is a fast, efficient worker.

 

First, let’s review the facts. Children--who should be buzzing about with so much energy that we have to ask them not to exercise--aren’t moving around that much anymore. (Ironically, part of the problem is the diminished role of phys ed in many public schools.) Only one in four children get 30 minutes of daily exercise, and by the time they’re teenagers, only 12% are getting their daily recommended amount of physical activity.

I had a bit of time in the morning, so I went for the Temppeliaukio Church or better known as Church in the Rock. This astonishing church was built in 1969 and right into the rock of this hill in Helsinki.

Yet it is still full of natural light which comes in from huge window panels under the copper dome.

Facebook helps doctors with diagnosis

Facebook helps doctors with diagnosis | Nov@ | Scoop.it

Facebook isn’t just for connecting with friends – doctors are finding uses for the social network in diagnosis.

 

Doctors from the Mayo Clinic used the social media site in investigating the stroke of a 56-year-old woman. They published a report about it in the journal BMJ Case Reports.

 

The patient had a clogged artery in her neck that needed to be opened for treatment. This type of stroke, called ischemic, happens because of reduced blood flow to the brain as a result of narrowed or blocked arteries.

 

There are usually two main causes of this blockage: One is trauma, which is more common in young people. The second type comes from risk factors such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The Mayo Clinic patient did not appear to have a history of these risk factors, or a history of trauma.

 

Dr. Manoj Mittal noticed that the woman's right eyelid was droopy and her right pupil was slightly smaller than the left. The doctor asked the woman and her husband if this was abnormal for her; they said they weren’t sure.

 

These symptoms may be associated with injury to a neck artery – in other words, through trauma.

 

“That made me think, if I can establish whether this is new or old, that can help us figure out what was the main cause,” Mittal said.

 

Mittal asked for the patient’s driver’s license, but it was old and torn. He couldn’t clearly see her eyes. The patient didn’t have any other photos with her, or on her phone, but said she had photos on Facebook.

 

The patient showed him several different profile photos from Facebook, giving Mittal recent examples of what she looked like. He discerned that her eyes were more symmetric in the photos – taken within the previous few months – than they were after the stroke.

Based on this information, it appeared more likely that the stroke had happened because of trauma.

 

Although the woman had said she hadn’t experienced any trauma, Mittal then asked if she had been to a chiropractor lately. There is some association between chiropractic manipulation and stroke, although it is not a definitive link and studies have shown contradictory evidence.

 

She had gone to a chiropractor because she had neck stiffness, and had spinal manipulation to treat that, two days before the stroke.

Doctors had already treated the patient for the stroke before the Facebook revelation, but it’s important to know the cause for the purposes of preventing a second stroke, Mittal said.

 

“If we did not know that she had any trauma or anything, it’s very hard to explain why she had a stroke,” Mittal said. “Once you why the stroke happened, it’s more comfort for the patient.”

 

Because of the early intervention she received, the patient had a good outcome, and was discharged after five days in the hospital, Mittal said. When she first came to the ICU, she had slurred speech, droopiness of the face and complete paralysis of the left side of the face. But after hospitalization, the paralysis had gone away, although she still had some symptoms.

 

Younger patients always do better for a stroke, and timing is crucial, Mittal said. She got IV medication within two hours of the onset of her stroke, and intervention was done relatively quickly. When a blood vessel is blocked in the brain, the chances of recovery are higher the quicker the person gets to the hospital.

The infographic from Open-Site.org illustrates just a few of the many ways the Internet has brought information directly to the people in recent years. Some of the points that jumped out at us include:

 

In 2012, there have been 10 million signatures on online petitions compared to only 3 million emails sent to Congress.

 

People on the east coast read tweets about an Earthquake 30 seconds before feeling it.

 

There are now more connected devices than people on the Earth.

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View | Nov@ | Scoop.it

What does it mean when you say 21st century learning? This post lists nine characteristics of 21st century learning and provides a rationale. What makes this notable is "the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the 'classic' approach to 'good learning' than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore."

The nine characteristics are in the diagram above and listed below:

Learner-centered, Media-driven, Personalized, Tranfer-by-Design, Visibly Relevant, Data-Rich, Adaptable, Interdependent and Diverse.

Initiatives populaires : civisme ou fardeau ?

Initiatives populaires : civisme ou fardeau ? | Nov@ | Scoop.it

« Ces initiatives populaires ne sont que des calmants qui occultent la réalité. Elles ne pourront pas régler nos problèmes quotidiens », dit Ahmad Ziyad, ingénieur, refusant l’appel lancé par l’un de ses voisins afin de l’accompagner lui, ses enfants et d’autres gens pour nettoyer les rues de leur quartier. Ziyad, à l’instar d’autres citoyens, a remarqué qu’il était devenu de plus en plus fréquent de voir des groupes de jeunes ramasser les ordures et nettoyer les rues.On les voit partout. Ils attirent les regards et sont repérables grâce à leurs t-shirts sur lesquels est imprimé le slogan de leur parti politique ou le nom du mouvement auquel ils appartiennent. Certains portent des gilets de couleur phosphorescente, d’autres arrivent en groupes, sont des employés dans des entreprises et sont transportés par des minibus.

Il s’agit de personnes répondant aux appels lancés par l’Etat et à l’initiative intitulée « Une patrie propre ». Une initiative qui encourage les citoyens à jouer un rôle actif et à participer au nettoyage des rues dans tous les gouvernorats d’Egypte.

En effet, la propreté figure parmi les cinq promesses avancées par le président élu et qui, d’après lui, devraient être réalisées durant les 100 premiers jours de son mandat.

Mais, une fois sa promesse annoncée, le Parti Liberté et justice, bras politique de la confrérie des Frères musulmans, et auquel appartient Morsi, n’a pas tardé à lancer cette initiative pour inciter le peuple à agir. Objectif : mobiliser le peuple pour aider le président à réaliser ses promesses.

World's smallest Smart glucose meter for the mobile phones get CE approval | Nov@ | Scoop.it
Philosys, a company based in New York City, received European CE Mark approval for its Gmate SMART glucose meter, an iPhone/iPad attachment that is the world’s smallest glucometer. The meter uses the iOS device via the headset jack as the interface to display results and track readings. It would seem that the same glucometer should also be compatible with other smartphones as long as an appropriate app is developed.

Philosys is currently looking to partner with cell phone firms to help distribute the Gmate SMART and hopes to have it’s device available to European customers by the end of the year.
