Michael A. Lombardi, a metrologist in the Time and Frequency Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colo., takes the case. In today's world, the most widely used numeral system is decimal (base 10), a system that probably originated because it made it easy for humans to count using their fingers. The civilizations that first divided the day into smaller parts, however, used different numeral systems, specifically duodecimal (base 12) and sexagesimal (base 60). Thanks to documented evidence of the Egyptians' use of sundials, most historians credit them with being the first civilization to divide the day into smaller parts. Without artificial light, humans of this time period regarded sunlit and dark periods as two opposing realms rather than as part of the same day. Once both the light and dark hours were divided into 12 parts, the concept of a 24-hour day was in place. References Time's Pendulum. Why is a minute divided into 60 seconds, an hour into 60 minutes, yet there are only 24 hours in a day? Why is a minute divided into 60 seconds, an hour into 60 minutes, yet there are only 24 hours in a day?

Sound familiar? While that laundry list of impending doom could be aimed at our era, it's actually a description of the world 3,000 years ago. 1177 B.C. is, for Cline, a milepost. The question that haunts Eric Cline is why. "The world of the Late Bronze Age and ours today have more similarities than one might expect, particularly in terms of relationships, both at the personal level and at the state level. What followed were drought, scarcity and desperation.

Social Field

The Blind Spot: Uncovering the Grammar of the Social Field | Otto Scharmer The Blind Spot: Uncovering the Grammar of the Social Field | Otto Scharmer This post is a bit longer than usual. But if you are interested in the invisible dimension of leading profound social change -- and in a blend of action science and consciousness to illuminate that blind spot -- it may be worth the read. My father is a farmer. As one of the pioneers of bio-dynamic farming in Germany, he devotes all his attention to cultivating the quality of the soil in his fields. That's exactly what I find myself doing today, though in a very different type of field. When people experience a transformational social shift, they notice a profound change in the atmosphere, in the texture of the social field. Today, in most social systems, we collectively produce results that no one wants. The intention of this paper is to uncover the grammar of the social field -- the key variables that make it possible for the operating logics and modes (states and stages) of a social field to shift.

An Animated Introduction to Michel Foucault, "Philosopher of Power" An Animated Introduction to Michel Foucault, "Philosopher of Power" Do you still need a working knowledge of the ideas of Michel Foucault to hold your own on the cocktail party circuit? Probably not, but the ideas themselves, should you bring them up there, remain as fascinating as ever. But how, apart from entering (or re-entering) grad school, to get started learning about them? Just look above: Alain de Botton’s School of Life has produced a handy eight-minute primer on the life and thought of the controversial “20th-century French philosopher and historian who spent his career forensically criticizing the power of the modern bourgeois capitalist state.” Perhaps that sounds like a parody of the activity of a French philosopher, but if you watch, you’ll find highlighted elements of Foucault’s grand intellectual project still relevant to us today. Once the School of Life has got you briefed on this wealthy altar boy (!)

Sembra che basti cliccare su “pubblica questa pagina” per poter dire: anche la mia azienda è sui social, in particolare su Facebook. Oggi è successo esattamente questo. Abbiamo cliccato su “pubblica” e la pagina è andata online. Poi, torni nel tuo ufficio e ti siedi a riflettere sulla strada che hai percorso e ti rendi conto che una pagina su Facebook non un touch points digitale, un “luogo web”, è una scelta, grave, di cui l’azienda si assume la responsabilità e di cui tu, come “head of”, sei protagonista e vittima potenziale, contemporaneamente. Perché grave? Così ripensi a quando il direttore ti aveva chiamato per dirti “da ora sei il capo dei Social Network. E arrivi alla parte creativa: come scriviamo i post, con che tono di voce, con che “segno grafico”. Poi le storie. Poi ti chiedi cosa succede se qualcuno ti attacca.

Come in una sorta di crasi del destino, come se in un dato momento le corrispondenze tra le cose diventassero immediatamente evidenti, son successe in queste ore due cose lontane e distinte, ma l’una fatta apposta per esaltare l’altra. Da una parte l’esempio positivo, una volta tanto battente bandiera italiana: Eni apre la propria pagina Facebook. Sarebbe un peccato mortale non pensare al progetto come a qualcosa di assolutamente storico, e tra poche righe sarà oltremodo chiaro il perché. Dall’altra c’è l’esempio negativo, una volta tanto battente bandiera tedesca: la Volkswagen cade nel più torbido degli scandali e si dimostra inoltre del tutto incapace di affrontare la cosa dal punto di vista comunicativo. Sceglie, quindi, di trincerarsi dietro il silenzio mentre le proprie azioni crollano in borsa trascinandosi i listini di tutta Europa. Le due vicende si sono sfiorate e si sono guardate negli occhi, cercando di specchiarsi in qualche modo. Eni apre al dialogo I contenuti Eni apre la propria pagina Facebook
Imagine you’re on Star Wars’ social media team. Representing one of the biggest, most recognizable brands in the world, you’ve gotta be on point all the time. Quick! Mark Zuckerberg just said “I love Star Wars.” in response to the new trailer. Don’t mess this up. What do you do? No. Star Wars’ Facebook Team’s perfect response: To anyone who doesn’t care, its an acknowledgement that, yeah, sure everyone loves Star Wars. But to the people who’ve seen Empire a few dozen too many times… it’s the perfect response. Need a recap?

E-commerce, terreno inexplorado en México El mercado de e-commerce tiene un valor potencial de 160,000 mdp en espera de que alguien lo aproveche. El uso intensivo de los smartphone es un factor que podría activar las compras y romper con la vieja idea de que Internet es poco confiable. Por Luis Rodríguez Munguía En 2011, un grupo de emprendedores, encabezados por Felipe Martínez Vaca, vio la oportunidad de ponerle precio a una idea para explotar el e-commerce a través del business intelligence. Martínez Vaca busca tomar esta gran oportunidad y cambiar las ventas por internet.

El content marketing es un elemento clave en las estrategias de mercadotecnia de las marcas que se vuelcan a construir piezas que comuniquen contenidos que les permitan llegar a su público meta enfocados a reforzar su engagement. Algunos datos que constatan su relevancia es que tan sólo durante 2015, el 25 por ciento del presupuesto destinado a publicidad se orientó a iniciativas de marketing de contenidos, revela un informe de MarketingProfs. Una tendencia que parece crecer, ya que de acuerdo con proyecciones de Genwords, se estima que para el presente año el 62 por ciento de las empresas y responsables del marketing incrementarán recursos y acciones relacionadas con este tipo estrategias. ¿Por qué esta tendencia? Esto es debido a que la competencia ya no sólo existe entre marcas nacionales e internacionales, ahora la evolución a nuevas dinámicas de comunicación con las redes sociales y el mobile motivan a nuevos productores de contenido: los consumidores. 1. 2. 3. 4. 4 casos que demuestran el por qué es bueno para las marcas hacer content marketing
