Viime vuosien taloudellisessa myllerryksessä moni keski-iän ylittänyt työntekijä on menettänyt työnsä oltuaan saman työnantajan palveluksessa jopa vuosikymmeniä.Nykypäivän hakumetodit saattavat tuntua etäisiltä, eikä sosiaalisen median käyttö työnhaussa ole välttämättä millään lailla tuttu asia.”Olen huomannut, että varttuneemmilla ihmisillä on iso kynnys liittyä someen, kun he eivät oikein tiedä, että ketkä ne tiedot näkevät ja mitä tietoja henkilöstä on löydettävissä”, kertoo Drama Queen Communicationsin Digitaalisen markkinoinnin konsultti Miikka Virtanen.”Profiilin perustiedot kannattaa laittaa aina heti ensimmäisenä kuntoon, eli hyvä ja selkeä profiilikuva ja profiilin otsikko.Lisäksi kannattaa lisätä sijainti ja toimiala missä on ennen työskennellyt tai haluaa työskennellä, se parantaa löydettävyyttä.”Virtanen suosittelee laittamaan myös edellisen työpaikan sekä esittelytekstin, mikä on tavallaan henkilökohtainen hissipuhe.

With the exploding Note 7 battery fiasco, Samsung inadvertently did something that’s increasingly difficult these days: It made smartphones interesting for a flickering moment.Besides the intriguing mournful saga of the Note 7, whose embarrassing recall cost the company billions, Samsung also set up a dramatic release narrative for the Galaxy S8.This wasn’t just another smartphone—this was a make-or-break device charged with saving a company in the throes of an existential crisis.A smartphone that screams at the void—yikes!Ultimately, what makes the S8 a winner isn’t any of the assistant smart features that manufacturers have been pushing hard over the last few years—in fact Samsung’s entrant here, Bixby, falls short.Though LG released a similarly bezel-less device earlier this year, it suffered from an excess of simplicity.

(Perhaps they’ll all be candidates someday for Netflix’s very welcome reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000.)How about an underrated Steven Spielberg movie?Nonetheless, this is the story of a little English orphan girl, Sophie (Ruby Barnhill, also delightful), who spots the giant and is taken back to the enchanted world of giants, where she learns that her captor is a good fellow at odds with his neighbors, the nasty, meat-eaters.Lazarus is an Australian now playing a black man, and has had his skin surgically darkened, speaking in character all the time.Touchstone Pictures and Warner Bros. PicturesThe Prestige (2006) is Christopher Nolan’s fifth feature, and his first after garnering millions of fans with his reboot of the Batman franchise, and it has quite a bit to do with the generally held opinion that he is an unalloyed genius.

Not about the fogies — they’re still afraid of self-driving electric cars — but about the kids.DTO surveyed 158,000 visitors to its site in early April 2017 and asked them just four questions about electric cars, autonomous vehicles, and brands that are innovating in these spaces.DTO, by the way, is a site that lets people study for their driving test online, so many of the respondents don’t have a car yet themselves.(But some do, because they’re adding a motorcycle endorsement to an existing license.)In the next question, about 30% said they’d be very or extremely concerned about riding in a self-driving car.There were a couple of interesting things about this answer, though.

On Thursday, MasterCard announced a “next generation biometric card” which embeds fingerprint recognition into debit cards.That may not be good news.The card requires customers to place their thumb on an embedded chip while it’s placed in card readers.Customers will still have to enter their PIN, but the transaction won’t be approved unless both the number and the thumbprint match.So even if you lose a debit card with the PIN 1234, thieves wouldn’t be able to use the card.MasterCard is piloting the feature across Europe, Asia, and South Africa, and expects to have a full rollout by the end of the year.

Sometimes admitting you're wrong can be cathartic.In Verizon's case, it was a chance to get past its denial that unlimited data plans are, in fact, a thing people want.On numerous occasions, the company shut the door on the idea of bringing back an unlimited data plan.In an ad blitz in January, Verizon suggested customers were better off on its 5 gigabyte plan instead."At the end of the day, people don't need unlimited plans," former Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo said in a September interview.AT and Sprint also touted their own all-you-can-eat options.

Yahoo reported revenues of $1.33bn for the Q1 of 2017, representing a jump of 22.1%, with the company reporting its anticipated planned sale to Verizon Wireless would close by the end of the second quarter this year.Revenues beat earlier analyst expectations, with revenues from both its Mavens operations ($529m) and non-Mavens operations ($742m) both up significantly compared to the year-ago period (see chart below) although the total cost of revenue ($494m) also up significantly compared to 12 months earlier when that number came in at $228m.Revenue from mobile devices was also up significantly from $260m during the opening quarter of 2016, to $412m in Q1 this year, with Yahoo noting that this increase was facilitated by its doubling the number of users enrolled in Yahoo Account Key during the last quarter, thus allowing users to more easily sign in to their Yahoo account using their mobile phone.However, not every area of the business saw increases, with search revenues tumbling from $492m 12 months ago, to $475m in Q1 this year, and display ad revenues seeing a 2% decrease year-over-year coming in at $456m for the period.In a statement, Marissa Mayer, chief executive of Yahoo, said: "As we enter our final quarter as an independent company, we are committed to finishing strong and planning for the best possible integration with Verizon.With the transaction anticipated to complete in June, I've never been more proud of the improvements we've made to the business and the value we've delivered to our shareholders."

The meeting resulted in a pledge: a plan to counter cyberattacks against the U.S. within 90 days of taking office."The United States, our government, out of a list of 17 in terms of industries is the worst ... in terms of protection."A day later, he appointed former New York City mayor and early supporter Rudolph Giuliani as a informal advisor on cybersecurity.A day after that, he again repeated the 90-day pledge in a tweet: "My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!"Despite a rocky start to Trump's time in office, the cybersecurity plan didn't appear to be suffering.Drafts of an executive order were being passed around Washington and refined, signs that the issue was active in the White House.

Netflix is supercharging its investment in stand-up comedy, and Dave Chappelle’s first of three new specials was the streaming giant’s most-viewed comedy special of all time.Netflix “stepped up” its investment in comedy by releasing a whopping 17 stand-up comedy specials this quarter, including a pair by Chappelle.“Early results are promising,” Netflix wrote in a letter to shareholders Monday.“The triumphant return of a comedy legend in Dave Chappelle: Collection 1 was our most viewed comedy special ever.We are also finding this to be true in international markets as well, with comedian Gad Elmaleh’s Gad Gone Wild, a breakout hit in France last quarter.”Why is Netflix going after comedy so aggressively?“There’s always been an interest in stand-up comedy,” Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos said on the earnings call Monday.“It was actually back in our early original content days and the red envelope entertainment, it’s all we did was produce original stand-up comedy and acquired documentaries and foreign language films.Always had good luck with it, just on a very small scale.And the format lends itself really well to what we’re doing … it’s uncensored, it’s commercial free, and that allows for a lot of creative freedom.

Almost invariably, the most glorious combination is going to a primary school and talking specifically about volcanoes, because kids always ask the best, madcap questions.Uninhibited by the idea that certain questions are perceived by society as “silly,” they tend to throw anything at me that suddenly appears in their creative minds.What happens if you drop a nuclear bomb into a volcano, some ask.A few query whether or not eruptions on other moons or planets reach us here on Earth.Several adults have asked me the same question, actually, although I suspect a few would be loath to admit that they had.As you probably know, volcanoes erupt when the pressure of the internal source of magma increases to such a level that the surrounding rock keeping it underground fragments, and ultimately collapses.

To most people, memes are just silly pictures overlaid with some text, designed to evoke a visceral reaction.But on a deeper level, the meme is a vessel for transmitting the current beliefs, opinions, and thoughts of our culture.We analyzed data from Priceonomics customer Me.me, a search engine that's indexed practically every meme ever produced and made the text on the images searchable.To answer these questions, we poured through our database of memes, analyzing keywords (the text that appears on the memes).We took all of our keywords, limited to those which appeared at least 10,000 times in memes as of January 2017 and manually sorted through them, removing the boring stuff (prepositions, pronouns, etc.).Below, are the keywords that increased the most in usage.

Monitoring crops is hard work.This Tarzan-inspired robot aims to make it easier by traversing wires to get a better view of what's happening.Tarzan is lord of the jungle, but according to some fascinating work being done by a team at Georgia Institute of Technology, he may also be lord of our robotics labs — and perhaps our farms, too.That’s because the team has developed Tarzan the Robot, a robot capable of traversing a high-wire in a manner not dissimilar to the way Edgar Rice Burroughs’ hero swings through the trees.The energy-efficient robot’s unusual form of locomotion was actually modeled on the movement of sloths, and is designed in such a way that it might one day be able to benefit from its high-flying position by being powered directly by the sun.Unlike a lot of innovative robotics projects, however, the team behind this particular robot isn’t just developing it for open-ended research.
