Be Mine: A Brief History of Valentine's Day Marketing

Be Mine: A Brief History of Valentine's Day Marketing | pumping society with stuff on a sleepness night | Scoop.it

When I was in grade school, Valentine’s Day was one of my favorite holidays. There were cards. There was the possibility that your crush actually liked you back. And, there was the chocolate -- so, so much chocolate.

 

Little did I know that the roots of this holiday bore little-to-no resemblance to my childhood experience of it. We were never taught that Valentine's Day actually originated with an arguably gruesome ancient festival, where there was no chocolate or exchange of cute, red-and-pink cards.

 

But love it or hate it, those are the types of things we associate with the holiday today. After all, there's a reason why roughly 114 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year -- it's what's become expected of us. So how the heck did we get from an ancient Roman festival, to a holiday that compels many of us to spend no less than $147 on celebrating it? That story, it turns out, is thousands of years old -- but we'll try to condense it....

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 16, 2015 6:08 AM

The greatest problem with the use of electricity for propulsion is storage. How do you store electric current efficiently and in sufficient amounts. Lithium Ion batteries are efficient, at least better than lead acid batteries, but then even they have disadvantages - even their efficiency deteriorates over a period of time! The second greatest biggest problem is that the the electricity being used to charge the batteries might not be green after all and it might itself have a huge carbon foot-print thus making the use of electricity for propulsion a contributor to global warming. If the Tesla Battery can address both of the above mentioned problems then I would hail it as one of the most versatile inventions of the twenty-first century!

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:10 AM

Will #fossil fuels disappear now? It won't be that easy, but certainly a huge step in the right direction.

France recruits eagles to take down drones

France recruits eagles to take down drones | pumping society with stuff on a sleepness night | Scoop.it

The French air force has some new feathered recruits. Eagles are being trained to bring down remote-controlled drones that enter urban airspace where they aren't permitted to fly.

The training for the eagles starts before birth. The birds are placed on top of drones while still in their shells and kept there after hatching. The birds are trained to see the drones as prey and receive meat as a reward for bringing down a drone. 

The use of eagles was prompted after drones flew over a French presidential palace in 2015 and sensitive military sites in 2016.

The French aren't the first to add eagles to their arsenal. Dutch police have also trained eagles to snatch drones from the sky....

The Psychology of What Makes a Great Story

The Psychology of What Makes a Great Story | pumping society with stuff on a sleepness night | Scoop.it

"The great writer's gift to a reader is to make him a better writer."

 

“Stories,” Neil Gaiman asserted in his wonderful lecture on what makes stories last, “are genuinely symbiotic organisms that we live with, that allow human beings to advance.” But what is the natural selection of these organisms — what makes the ones that endure fit for survival? What, in other words, makes a great story?
