Paolo Woods: “Nouvelles Russes” documents career women in Russia in 2006 and 2007 (PHOTOS). Paolo Woods/Institute The photographer Paolo Woods began a career as a photojournalist, in his words, “rather late.” He isn’t in a rush to catch up, though he has rapidly built a portfolio of fascinating and deeply researched projects around the world including Iran, China, Afghanistan, and Russia. Woods worked in the fine art world (he ran a gallery in Florence, Italy) before dedicating himself to photojournalism in 1998.

E-learning for primary school teachers - Unite IT: The e-Inclusion Network in Europe The e-learning is the use of new multimedia technologies and the Internet to improve the quality of learning by facilitating access to resources and services as well as remote exchanges and collaboration. Also we can say that e-learning is an online access to learning resources, anywhere and anytime. The e-learning has its advantages and disadvantages.

Customer Loyalty: Is It an Attitude Or a Behavior? The people who've tried to define customer loyalty have usually approached it from one of two different directions - attitudinal and behavioral. Although each of these directions is valid, they have different implications and lead to very different prescriptions for businesses. (This is analogous, but I don't think it is precisely aligned, with Estaban Kolsky's distinction between "emotional" and "intellectual" loyalty.) The attitudinal definition of loyalty implies that loyalty is a state of mind. By this definition, a customer is "loyal" to a brand or a company if they have a positive, preferential attitude toward it. They like the company, its products or its brands, and they therefore prefer to buy from it, rather than from the company's competitors.

Shards of Turquoise Ice Jut Out of the World's Largest Lake Lake Baikal, located in the southern part of eastern Siberia in Russia, is an incredible natural wonder of the world that one can only hope to visit at least once in their lifetime. It's not just the oldest freshwater lake on Earth, at 20 to 25 million years old, it's also one of the largest and deepest, holding an astounding one-fifth of the world's freshwater. In the winter, for about five months or from January to May, the lake freezes over but the water is so clear that, from the surface, you can see an astounding 130 feet below you. A photographic worthy natural phenomenon occurs around a very specific time of year, March. Wind, temperature differences, frost and sun in the ice crust cause cracks and ice hummocks to form.

The customer rarely buys what the company thinks it's selling him Clayton Christensen classifies sustaining innovations as those that continue to improve a product or service, and move it up and up and up along the customer's need. Often, sustaining innovations achieve a quality far in excess of what most customers actually need, and as quality improves, price and margin improve as well. In fact, Christensen says, competition in sustaining innovations has a tendency to increase the price of the product (in contrast to the common economic wisdom that competition reduces prices). However, at some point below this level of high product quality and innovation, there are disruptive technologies that will always chip away at the higher end products. He had a table showing different companies that had created innovative products at one time, then been successively replaced by cheaper products always moving up up up in this sustaining innovation trend. He told a story about Flextronics, a company that supplied small circuit boards to Compaq.

Using Twitter for Professional Development The term “professional development” conjures up thoughts of travel, conference fees, arranging substitutes, and loss of precious instructional time. But does it have to entail all that? Actually, no. Change Comes in Waves One of Saffo's most interesting perspectives is that innovation moves in phases. New scientific discoveries come in waves, and following these discoveries you have new technological applications that change everything. Chemistry innovations in the very early part of the 20th Century led to new giant companies like IG Farben and others. Then physics, in the second or third decade, and then electronics (or IT), in the 1950s.
