9 Tools to Help Live-Stream Your Newsroom

That’s the oft-heard lament in newsrooms. More and more traditional journalists recognize the benefits of blogging and social media, but many just can’t figure out how to add them to their existing workload.

So now, for example, brainstorming can be done with a wiki-like tool, and notes from a meeting or background research can become a blog post. I call this approach “live-streaming the newsroom.” Below is an overview of the tools we used and discussed during the workshop. Tools for (Almost) Instantaneous Blogging Mindmaps In preparing the project, I published a MindMeister mindmap that charted out various social media tools. Mindset Related. My RSS Feeds.

Careful shoppers and leaner store shelves will be the norm as retail recovers in 2010, and that state of affairs could last a while, according to a new study. The annual Global Powers of Retailing 2010 report by consultants Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu forecasts stores will see sales recover in the short term.

But it also warns retailers face a tougher environment during the next decade that will force changes in how and what they sell. %%DynaPub-Enhancement class="enhancement contentType-HTML Content fragmentId-1 payloadId-61603 alignment-right size-small"%% Retailers will have a good year in 2010 "not a great year, but pretty good," said Ira Kalish, director of global economics for Deloitte Research.

Predictions about how well the 5,800-room mixed-use project will attract new customers to Las Vegas are a bit more dour, though. In a report looking at projections for 2010, CB Richard Ellis casino consultant Jacob Oberman, for instance, predicts that Strip gaming and nongaming revenues will increase 3 percent to 7 percent next year, but 70 percent to 90 percent of CityCenter's initial revenues will come at the expense of other Strip properties.

"It is difficult to make a case that CityCenter will not have at least some dilutive effect on the market," Oberman's report said. RGE Monitor.
