Pearson - Always Learning. This Looks Like A Regular Departures Board — Until You Look Closely. Click image to Zoom Yep, do you see what is on the departure boards in Waterloo Station in London? Instead of having train times, the human rights organization Amnesty International displayed the names of people imprisoned because of their race, sexual orientation, religion, or political views; the date of their "departure" at the hands of state authorities; and destinations on their journey of injustice, torture, and denial of human rights.

Amnesty International told me the project cost nothing, and what's even better is that they did it on Mother's Day, when thousands of people were heading home to be with their families — they will be reminded just how lucky they are to be going home at all. As people texted to add their support for the campaign, their names appeared on the huge screens. League of Intrapreneurs. Davidson Institute. Artalks - About.

Social isolation a critical issue facing our elderly. Tuesday, 21 June 2011 The University of Adelaide will lead an Australian-first study to reduce social isolation among older people, identified as one of the most serious mental and physical health risks facing the nation. Chief Investigator Professor Andrew Beer and a team of researchers have been awarded $348,151 by the Australian Research Council to look at the most effective programs to combat social isolation in an ageing society, where divorce, lower marriage rates and reduced fertility are contributing to a critical health issue. "Social isolation is equivalent to the health effects of smoking 15 cigarettes a day or consuming more than six alcoholic drinks daily," Professor Beer says.

"It is more harmful than not exercising and twice as harmful as obesity. " Professor Beer is the Director of the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Adelaide. The results of the study are expected in mid 2014. Content Strategy for Professionals: Engaging Audiences for Your Organization. About the Course Why Content Strategy is essential for professionals in any organization – business, non-profit, or government: Content Strategy is a conversation that provides thought-leadership. It starts a “conversation” with users and stakeholders inside and outside an organization.

Conversations are the natural way people think about complex issues. Conversations also enable people to develop “stories,” which lead to understanding and helpful mental pictures. Content Strategy practitioners are at all levels of the best enterprises – in all departments and sectors from the top leader to the newcomer in the ranks. In this complex information age, forward-thinking employees know that if they and their organizations are to thrive, they need to go beyond their job descriptions. Content Strategy is similar to the best examples of journalism, but it is done by non-journalism organizations.
