We are all self-promoters but there is a way to do it and a way not to do it. Usually when you do it wrong, you get your hands slapped. That is a service afforded to the newbies who are feeling the system out. Sometimes the vets need a reawakening, too. :)

MyKLogica's curator insight, March 21, 2014 2:07 PM

Personalmente, los denomino de formas diferentes, "Gestión" y "Curación" de contenidos, puesto que aunque en la gestión no se aporta el valor diferencial del punto de vista del curador, aún así es una gran labor la de seleccionar buen contenido y ayudar en su difusión.


Personally I call them differently as content "management" and "curation"; as though with management we haven´t the added value of the personal point of view of the curator, still it is a great job to find and select good, quality content.

Barbara Hart Radisavljevic's curator insight, March 26, 2014 7:13 PM

Quality content curation takes time. It takes time to read sources before promoting them.

The world’s languages, in 7 maps and charts

The world’s languages, in 7 maps and charts | Real Estate | Scoop.it

Caitlyn Christiansen's curator insight, May 26, 2015 10:35 AM

The world is extremely diverse in its spread of native languages. Yet only a handful are commonly spoken by the majority of the world, about 2/3. Over half of the world's languages are expected to go extinct because of the extreme diversity and the minimal distribution which means that in some places almost every person speaks a completely different language and many are dying as their last speakers do not pass it on to their children.

 

This article is relates to cultural patterns and processes through the geographic spread of languages around the globe and the increasing acculturation that causes the loss of many of these languages in our increasingly globalized world.

Michael Amberg's curator insight, May 26, 2015 10:35 PM

Its interesting to see just how many people speak the languages we speak everyday, and to see just how many people DONT speak it.

Shane C Cook's curator insight, May 27, 2015 5:34 AM

It is amazing to see all main languages in perspective to the world. Mandarine holding the top spot with 1.39 Billion surprises me but at the same time doesn't. There are 1.3 billion people living there in the first place.

RD House keeps naturally cool inside a Dominican Republic hillside | GizMag.com

RD House keeps naturally cool inside a Dominican Republic hillside | GizMag.com | Real Estate | Scoop.it

Cave homes, pit houses and other part or fully-underground dwellings all offer benefits in energy efficiency when compared to typical above-ground homes, thanks to natural insulating properties that help to maintain a near-constant interior temperature. Architectural firm Vasho made use of the same principle to keep RD House cool by partially burying it within a steep Dominican Republic hillside.Completed in 2013, RD House has a total floor space of 500 sq m (5,381 sq ft), and was a challenging project to bring about, requiring extensive waterproofing of the rear areas of the home, plus the laborious (and environmentally-destructive) process of excavating large quantities of rock. Much of the rock removed was however later re-used as a construction material.The home's rear sections come into direct contact with the hillside, so are naturally kept a constantly cool temperature by the huge volume of rock. The forward areas and balconies also feature ample natural sunlight and outdoor areas.RD House boasts extensive home automation, allowing fine control of lighting, entertainment devices, jacuzzi, and related amenities. It also contains a water treatment plant for the re-use of grey water, while multiple green roofs serve the dual purpose of helping the home blend into the hillside, and providing a degree of solar insulation.Click headline to read more and view pix gallery--
