Med tanke på hur mycket din Linkedin-profil kan betyda för karriären är det verkligen värt att lägga lite möda på att få den bra.Här är sex tips på hur du lyckas med den viktiga sammanfattningen.Det räcker inte att ha en profil – det är till och med så att en intetsägande eller ofullständig profil gör mer skada än nytta, skriver, karriärcoach och Linkedinexpert, i tidningen Forbes.Sammanfattningen är en av de viktigaste komponenterna för att skapa en lockande profil.Blanda inte ihop det med erfarenhetssektionen där du beskriver vad du gör och allt fantastiskt du har åstadkommit tidigare.Sammanfattningen ska förmedla dina värderingar, passioner och styrkor för att ge en bild av vem du är och vad du har att ge.

Archaeologists have unlocked the secrets of an amazing 1,500-year-old altar discovered at a Maya temple deep in the Guatemalan jungle.The ornately carved altar was discovered in 2017 at the Maya site of La Corona, located in the Petén jungle near the Mexico border.When it was first found, the altar was encased in the roots of a tree in a collapsed temple.It took a year to painstakingly pry the massive stone slab from the roots, fully excavate it and move it to Guatemala City, where it was presented earlier week at a museum.Made of limestone, the altar depicts the image of the previously unknown king Chak Took Ich’aak carrying a double-headed serpent effigy.Two local gods are shown emerging from the snake.

Didn’t get your fill of Amazon news among the 70 or so announcements at today’s Alexa event?Good news, Audible’s got something to add to the deluge.The Amazon-owned audiobook site just announced the availability of its Apple Watch app.The offering brings pretty much what you’d expect.You can listen to audiobooks and manage your library directly from the small screen.It’s a pretty logical next step for the service, given the focus Apple has put on smartwatch audio, between last year’s addition of an LTE version of the watch, and the recent announcement of a native Podcasting app for the platform.

It sounds like something George R. R. Martin might cook up in the next Game of Thrones book: Ice Volcanoes.New research suggests the dwarf planet Ceres, the largest celestial body in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, is home to dozens of volcanoes that spew water ice and gases known as "cryomagma".In 2015, NASA's Dawn spacecraft entered orbit around Ceres and started taking images.The probe gave scientists the most comprehensive look at Ceres yet, revealing its cratered surface and a volcano stretching 2.5 miles into the sky they dubbed "Ahuna Mons".Research in 2016 suggested that Ahuna Mons was a geological phenomena known as a "cryovolcano".The latest research, published online Monday in Nature Astronomy, suggests Ahuna Mons isn't just an extremely (sorry) anomaly.

Amazon is experimenting with a new tool called Scout designed to help shoppers better figure out what they want to buy in a more visual fashion, according to a report from CNBC, which first spotted Scout live on Amazon’s site.Using a combination of imagery, a thumbs up and down voting mechanism, and machine learning technology, Scout offers an almost Pinterest-like way of browsing Amazon products, then refining recommendations through user input.Currently, the site lets you search for furniture, kitchen, dining products, home décor, patio items, lighting, and bedding, as well as women’s shoes.In time, Amazon will add more products like clothing and handbags, it said.While Amazon.com today has just about any product you could want, finding items you like when you only have a vague idea of what you want can be more difficult.For example, if you’re looking for a dresser, or a new comforter, or deck chairs, you’re often stuck scrolling down through a long list of matching results that aren’t at all customized to your particular tastes.

Space lasers are not just the domain of evil supervillains -- they can help scientists map the Earth too.On Saturday, NASA will launch the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) into orbit, which carries a giant space laser known as the Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS).ATLAS will enable NASA to create detailed pictures of the planet as the satellite zooms overhead.Every second, the six-beam laser will fire 10,000 pulses from space at the Earth and then record how long it takes until the laser pulse bounces off the land.Around 20 photons leave ATLAS with every pulse and by measuring the travel time for a photon to leave the laser and return, scientists will get incredibly accurate measurements on the height of the planet's features.The technology will enable scientists to describe the features of the Earth and take accurate measurements of glaciers, ice sheets and sea ice.

Kontroverserna kring de ofrivilliga graviditeterna har fått Läkemedelsverket att utreda den svenska p-appen Natural Cycles.Mycket har stått på spel.Natural Cycles är ett av Europas hetaste digitala vårdbolag och lockat till sig hela 345 Mkr i riskkapital sedan starten.Tidigare i veckan kunde Di Digital berätta att Läkemedelsverket ställt hemliga krav på bolaget för att godkänna appen som ett preventivmedel.Bland annat skulle dessa förändringar "minska risken för fel" bland användarna.Mer konkret innebär det att Natural Cycles med större tydlighet måste meddela att 7 av 100 kvinnor som använder appen blir oönskat gravida varje år.

And so far, that philosophy has served his young indie studio well.Arribas founded Numantian in 2013 after saving enough money to leave his IT career behind.He immediately began work on Lords of Xulima, a fantasy role-playing game that’s an homage to RPG classics like Ultima and Might & Magic (a genre that quickly fell out of favor after its heyday in the ‘90s).Released on PC in 2014 after getting funded through Kickstarter, Lords of Xulima was able to find a passionate audience.While Arribas is happy with how Lords of Xulima turned out, he said it was also “a real training ground on every aspect of game development.” He and the rest of the studio — with six people in the core team, along with 30 others working in various capacities — were determined to use that experience and expertise to make their next game even better.With that in mind, the studio started work on They Are Billions, an RTS that combines intricate planning with an inventive steampunk setting and an army of zombies that can destroy your civilization at a moment’s notice.

Apple and Samsung are tremendous rivals.Even if they finally managed to settle their long-running patent dispute this June and continue to do other forms of business, they're still duking it out in ads and new device announcements as they strive to eat one another's lunch.So it'd be a little weird if Samsung were to save Apple from losing loads of money in its home country of South Korea, no?And yet that's a distinct possibility, according to statements from South Korea's Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) reported by at least two Korean publications today.You see, Apple has been one of several companies under investigation by MOTIE's Korean Trade Commission for potentially violating the patents of South Korean university KAIST's licensing arm for what's known as FinFET semiconductor technology.It's one of the breakthroughs in recent decades that allowed semiconductors to continue to shrink in size (and thus let chips increase in speed and complexity).

When IBM announced a free online blockchain course for Indian students in June, it probably didn’t anticipate the response it would get.The inaugural edition of the course – titled “Blockchain Architecture Design and Use Cases” – has seen more than 21,000 registrations.In fact, the course has proved to be so popular that it can barely keep up with the demand.In an email sent to course participants today, the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) revealed that the unexpected interest in the course has created a backlog of registrations on IBM’s website.The cause is students trying to sign up for the IBM blockchain starter program as part of their coursework.Hard Fork has since obtained a copy of the email, here is what it said:

I knew from the day I started at Facebook that I would have to make a choice.I was five months pregnant and raising two young boys.It meant working during my commute, coming home to feed the kids and put them to sleep, then falling into bed.During my four months’ maternity leave—standard policy at Facebook—I envisioned caring for a baby alongside a full-time job.I could work a few days from home, taking breaks to nurse, video conferencing while she napped, making up the extra hours after I put all three kids to sleep.In mid-July, with the heartache of a break-up, I sent my resignation letter.

Microsoft has sent out invites for an October 2 event in New York City, exactly a week before Google will host its hardware event in the same city.Updates to hardware are expected, but we have reason to believe a Surface Phone announcement is highly unlikely.The event invite itself is very vague.The only tagline is “A moment of your time.” followed by the date and time (October 2 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern) and the address (Industria Studios at 775 Washington Street).The event will be similar to last year’s, where Microsoft unveiled the Surface Book 2.While hardware was the main attraction, the company did make a point to talk about how its Surface line ties in with its broader software and services vision.

Chocolate Factory cuts characters from address bar for the sake of brevity (yeah right)Google Chrome has suddenly stopped displaying www.and m. in website addresses in its URL bar, confusing the heck out of some netizens.The move is apparently to cut down on unneeded "trivial" characters that normies and techies alike shouldn't, according to the browser's developers, need to worry about in 2018.The more cynically minded reckon, perhaps correctly, that this is the first step in Google switching up the way Chrome displays URLs, such as hiding the fact that a webpage is served using Google's site-gobbling AMP system.Starting with version 69.0.3497.81 out this week, users who type in a website address with the www.

Support for some Windows 10 releases is being extended, and the company is offering new services to help detect and address compatibility issues should they arise.Microsoft has settled on two annual feature updates (the "Semi-Annual Channel," SAC) to Windows 10, one finalized in March (and delivered in April) and the other finalized in September (and delivered in October).Initially, the company promised 18 months of support for each feature update, a policy that would allow customers to defer deployment of feature updates or even skip some updates entirely.Going forward, the September releases are going to see even longer support periods; for Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education, each September release will receive 30 months of servicing.In principle, an organization that stuck to the September releases could go two years between feature updates.Customers of Windows 10 Home, Pro, and Pro for Workstations will continue to receive only 18 months of updates for both March and September releases.

The road to House of Cards season 6 has been a long and winding one.After series lead Kevin Spacey was dropped by Netflix following sexual misconduct allegations, we weren’t even sure if the show would continue for a 6th season.After announcing that season 6 will be the last for House of Cards and briefly suspending production, Netflix revealed that Robin Wright will lead the show without any involvement from Spacey.While the preceding seasons seemed to set up Wright’s move into the role of series lead rather nicely, fans have been wondering how the show writers are going to explain away the absence of Spacey’s character Frank Underwood.We no longer have to guess, as a new teaser for the final season tells us just what’s happened to Frank in the time between seasons 5 and 6.If you want to go into season 6 completely unspoiled, it’s probably best that you stop reading here.

Rochester, MN, September 4, 2018 - There is a strong seasonal pattern in seeking cardiovascular health information on Google, with higher search activity during winter months, according to a new study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.Investigators also found that US states with higher deaths from cardiovascular disease (CVD) have higher CVD-related search volumes compared with regions with lower CVD mortality.By integrating artificial intelligence in healthcare research, the data generated by online cardiovascular health searches could be leveraged in the future to estimate disease activity in the community."By showing that seasonal and geographic interest in seeking CVD health information correlates with findings in real-world data, we show that Internet search-query data could potentially provide real-time information on CVD in the community," explains lead investigator Nilay Kumar, MD, of the Division of Hospital Medicine, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, WI, USA.CVD is the number one cause of death worldwide, and more than 600,000 people die from CVD in the United States every year.To address these two questions, investigators obtained data from Google Trends, which is a repository of online search query data made publicly available by Google.
