Extensive Archive of Avant-Garde & Modernist Magazines (1890-1939) Now Available Online Having once been involved in the founding of an arts magazine, I have experienced intimately the ways in which such an endeavor can depend upon a community of equals pooling a diversity of skills. The process can be painful: egos compete, certain elements seek to dominate, but the successful product of such a collaborative effort will represent a living community of artists, writers, editors, and other masters of technique who subordinate their individual wills, temporarily, to the will of a collective, creating new gestalt identities from conceptual atoms. As Monoskop---“a wiki for collaborative studies of art, media and the humanities”---points out, “the whole” of an arts magazine, “could become greater than the sum of its parts.” Often when this happens, a publication can serve as the platform or nucleus of an entirely new movement.

Jubilothèque — Fonds Giard The BUPMC preserves in its section Biologie Recherche the library constituted by Alfred Giard (1846-1908), French zoologist who contributed to the dissemination of the idea of the evolution of species in France. The collection exemplifies the research led by the scientist at the Lille Faculty of science, where he first worked, at the Wimereux maritime zoology laboratory, created and funded by his own contribution in 1874, at the Ecole normale supérieure (from 1887), at the chair in history of evolution of organized beings (which he was the first appointed to in 1888) and at the Académie des sciences (1900). The collection shows how difficult was the adoption of the theory of evolution by the French university, but the number of research works in descriptive biology still used in parasitology and marine biology makes it exceed the pure historical interest. The monographs selected for digitization include in particular books by A.

How To Prove Content Marketing ROI For Your Business Content marketing has exploded in the last couple of years. The platforms to create new content, curate existing content, and publish all of it to the right channels have grown and matured. However, in spite of the exponentially higher volume of content that is being churned out by businesses today, the fact remains that the majority of these activities still cannot be directly tied to company bottom lines. Accountability and revenue attribution are the twin gaping holes in this mega-bucket of content that most businesses are racing to build. A report by Marketing Score showed that 6 out of the 10 lowest ranked marketing tools from an accountability perspective happened to be key elements of content marketing. The Rise and Fall of Placebo Medicine I am just getting back from The Amazing Meeting (TAM9 from Outer Space) – it was awesome but I had no time to blog while there. One of the events I participated in at TAM was a panel discussion on placebo medicine. We decided to focus on placebos for our science-based medicine panel because it increasingly looks like this will be the front lines for the next phase of the battle against pseudoscience in medicine. I began the panel discussion by declaring victory, of a sorts. Over the last two decades the public and the scientific community have be told by CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) proponents that we were missing out on many potentially very useful and effective medical treatments simply because they are from other cultures or do not fit into the current scientific paradigm.

Illustrations - Roberto Ziche I haven’t had enough opportunities in my past to do large, high quality illustrations, where every detail is carefully crafted. I did a few DVD and book covers while working with the documentation team, but only a few were using my own models and renderings. Often I was just improving materials, lighting, and composition of existing content created by the book or DVD author. More recently, I did a couple of poster-size images, and really enjoyed it. Since they were not related to any work project, I had the time and freedom to try new techniques, different renderers, and create efficient workflows for very large images.

20 Ways to Reward Repeat Visitors on Your Ecommerce Site Many ecommerce businesses neglect the importance of rewarding their repeat visitors while they strive to drive revenue, increase social mentions, and build a loyal following.
