Mick D Kirkov's insight:

This way you'll learn how to compare anything to THE sex and be nevermore short on analogies, associations, nevermore empty before the blank sheet. Just write, if nothing else comes to mind, compare it to sex, and THE interest is guaranteed. ROTFLMAO

LinkedIn strengthens and extends your existing network of trusted contacts. LinkedIn is a networking tool that helps you discover inside connections to recommended job candidates, industry experts and business partners.
Mick D Kirkov's insight:

With Netflix jumping into original programming it was just a matter of time before other online giants followed suit. Amazon Studios is accepting original scripts free for possible development.

Writing for marketing is also writing, maybe (copy-)writing. Nevertheless, the style is other: 5 steps instead of gazillion, that's impressive!

The Digital Classrooms Project - Online Video

Sharing ideas from my digital book at: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/digital-classrooms-online-video

Via Nik Peachey
Mick D Kirkov's insight:

You know, the most expensive things for a state are still

1) the education

2) the health care

 

If somehow new media can help, it goes here upon trillions of $$$ that could be saved. Like e.g. in using LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/edu/?trk=nav_responsive_sub_nav_edu instead of or parallel with another education. 


Montse Delgado, Manager at Open Education Challenge asked: What is the role of virtual reality applications in the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) era? - Can virtual and augmented reality applications deliver the missing ingredients for profound, effective learning in distance education? What is the role of virtual reality applications in the MOOC era? CALL FOR PAPERS! http://www.openeducationeuropa.eu/en/elearning_papers/call_for_papers     (open to Apr 27 2014). Spread the word!

 

Those saved could be put f.ex. in measures by people against Earth Warming that is, for the time being still ignored. But its revenge lets us notice it, that's in cash. No matter if the losses are in Venezia, N.Y. or in New Orleans, on north or south pole.

Internet Dipendenza: un cattivo utilizzo del web può sviluppare dipendenza

Internet Dipendenza: un cattivo utilizzo del web può sviluppare dipendenza | Writing mag | Scoop.it

Per la globalizzazione e l’ampia disponibilità delle risorse, Internet è diventato uno strumento che aiuta e migliora il benessere dell’individuo. Resta aperto il dibattito su ciò che rende problematico l'utilizzo di Internet e in particolare lo sviluppo di dipendenze comportamentali legate al web. Alcuni ricercatori sud africani hanno condotto uno studio per indagare la prevalenza della dipendenza da Internet (Internet Addiction o IA) tra gli adolescenti e determinare se si tratta di un disturbo distinto dalle altre forme di dipendenza comportamentale.

Ludopatia: in una revisione italiana, il ruolo dei gestori nella prevenzione e gestione dei giocatori problematici

Ludopatia: in una revisione italiana, il ruolo dei gestori nella prevenzione e gestione dei giocatori problematici | Writing mag | Scoop.it

I gestori di sale gioco e di locali nei quali siano presenti macchine da gioco sembrano avere poca consapevolezza dei problemi legati al gioco d’azzardo e del loro ruolo nel supportare i giocatori rispetto a modalità di gioco meno rischiose o nel prevenire comportamenti rischiosi in soggetti con tendenze problematiche.
E’ quanto emerge da una revisione della letteratura, italiana e internazionale, effettuata da un team di ricerca italiano, completata dall’analisi dei fattori soggettivi e delle componenti sociali, e delle relative rappresentazioni, che interagiscono nell’evoluzione del fenomeno del GAP presso la popolazione. Dall’analisi dei dati raccolti, emerge che la maggior parte degli studi si concentra sui lavoratori del settore del gioco d’azzardo e sui rischi da essi corsi, ma in pochi casi la ricerca focalizza la propria attenzione sulle strategie messe in atto per individuare e fronteggiare modalità di gioco d’azzardo patologico tra i clienti dei locali. Inoltre, nella letteratura internazionale, sono emersi pochi studi sugli esercizi non esclusivamente dedicati al gioco d’azzardo, all’interno dei quali opera personale generalmente non specializzato, mentre negli studi realizzati a livello nazionale si osserva una maggiore focalizzazione su queste tipologie di locali.
In conclusione, dunque, gli autori della revisione, sottolineano la necessità, emersa dall’analisi di quanto raccolto, di intraprendere azioni sulla formazione degli operatori e sulla regolamentazione del gioco.
