Join us for this live webinar on Thursday, September 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern.The face-to-face B2B sales process of the past — the many phone calls, the gratuitous lunches, the exhausting trade shows, followed by more phone calls — has been transformed by the digital landscape.The number of touchpoints and opportunities that now exist to intercept prospects and turn them into viable leads is unprecedented.That doesn’t mean lead generation has become easy.It takes a healthy mix of art and science to succeed in a hyper-competitive, crowded space.And it takes a well-honed knowledge of all the available channels and how they can compliment one another.
the UN climate summit in Morocco in Marrakech, the convening of the state signed the meeting at the conclusion of the statement, which calls for global warming anti-work to be more topical than ever.the climate conference, whose purpose was to accelerate the development of the Paris climate agreement the executive, ended between Friday and Saturday night in Morocco in Marrakech.the Paris agreement was last Friday, has been ratified by 111 states.the statement stresses that the climate of momentumista of no return, as "the driving states in addition to the science, business and global action at all levels".This can be considered as an indirect message to the Us presidential election winning Donald Trump, which is, inter alia, called climate change the chinese invention as a hoax.the Marrakesh meeting, under the published studies according to the different countries by emissions reduction commitments are not enough to make global warming stop would be Paris agreement in accordance with the objectives under two degrees above pre-industrial levels.
Finnish science is in stable condition as well as the world average, occurs in the Finnish academy of Science space 2016 -report.for Example, the number of scientific publications per capita in many OECD countries compared with the highest, and Finnish researchers ' international co-publications share has clearly grown in recent years.in the Years 2011-2014 international co-publications was more than half, when in the early 1990s, the number was 27 percent.the number of Scientific publications over the last ten years elevated a little bit, but other research-intensive countries are, however, progressed the fastest.according to the Report of Finland of the above were, for example, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark.University research expenditures last year were 1.45 billion euros, of which more than half of universities basic funding.
the Chair getting up is good for your health, says exercise science Arto pesola's dissertation research.Last week Friday at the university of Jyväskylä väitellyn according to the study, it is particularly profitable to rise from a chair up, because often also actively exercise enthusiasts people sit most of the day."the Smallest muscle activity has been proposed to prevent adverse health effects, with long-term passivity of the cause.a Brisk increased exercise to everyday life can be tricky, but already standing triple muscle activity for sitting compared to", Pesola said the university's website.the Study involved office workers the muscles were examined at the beginning of the passive on the job nearly 80% and free-time more than 60%.the Study utilized the individual counseling helped to decrease the muscular inactivity per day of 37 minutes and a long passive period of the duration also became shorter.
the highest trained of unemployment turned last year at the end of the decline.the membership of the unemployment survey, for example engineers and business administration graduates, the employment situation improved, while the master of law, unemployment increased.at the end of February a higher education were unemployed had a total of 47 071, a decline from last year was 4.5%.the Engineers were unemployed, 10.2 percent last year, fewer graduates are 6.3% less, master of philosophy (hum.)2.6% less, and diploma-engineers 9.2% less than in the previous year.the number of Unemployed persons increased further legal science master's degree for which had unemployment of 14.7 percent over last year.
p The NHS has a rotten reputation when it comes to technology.At Davos in January last year, NHS England CEO Simon Stevens announced seven innovation testbeds that will take a different approach to tackling the impending health crisis.Two of the testbeds focused on Internet of Thingstechnology, with Surrey and Borders partnership NHS Foundation Trust using smart devices to help people with dementia stay at home longer and West of England's Academic Health Science Network developing a diabetes digital coach.The other five testbeds weren't as prescriptive: in North East London and in Lancashire and Cumbria, testbeds were looking to support older people with dementia; Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale NHS was working with Google's Verily on prediction and prevention techniques; Sheffield was looking to help people with diabetes, hypertension and other long-term condition treat themselves at home; and the Birmingham and Solihull project was developing tools for managing mental health.That's only expected to increase as demographics skew older, with the number of people 75 or older up by 89 per cent since the mid 1970s.As long term illnesses affect more people – as of 2013, there were 3.2 million people with diabetes – that's expected to increase to four million within the decade.
We looked at the big picture and distilled the 2016 Exponential Manufacturing conference into the four big themes we saw emerge during the event.Dale Doughtry, CEO and founder of Maker MediaCrowdfunding platforms are fueling the entry of these low-cost machines, like the Makerarm, which raised nearly half a million dollars on Kickstarter, and is the first complete digital fabrication robotic arm that mounts to a desktop.Robotics expert and director of Columbia University s Creative Machine Labs, Hod Lipson, projected how these advances in AI and robotics will converge to create fully resilient and adaptive cloud-connected factories in the future.Shree Bose took this route with Piper, a computer kit for kids to learn engineering through the game Minecraft and the grand prize winner of Google s Global Science Fair.Bose said she only built one scrappy prototype of Piper before beginning the Kickstarter campaign.Hagel said the economy is splitting into two parts—products and services are fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces, while the platforms knitting them together are getting bigger.
Business leaders who have opted to wait out a tech jobs hiring crunch to fill or add positions in their organization may want to consider getting off the sidelines.When a talent shortage article is published, it s likely that some people in the audience will roll their eyes and think that they each know a half-dozen talented IT professionals who are either under-employed or unemployed.Analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics by corporate advisory and strategy firm CEB shows that by 2020, the U.S. could have 1.4 million open computing jobs.Eóin O Toole, co-founder and managing partner of recruiter Arete Partners, notes that when employers turn up their noses at night school and online certificate programs, they exacerbate the problem.That may mean encouraging people with backgrounds not typical of those in science, technology, engineering and math.Programs aimed at adults are bringing people into STEM careers from seemingly unlikely backgrounds.
Hey so I recently applied to many internships and surprisingly this company called me back saying they want an interview on Sunday.Most of their team consists of 24-28 year olds and Im only 18.Its a paid internship and you get to travel and stuff.I currently work at a tutoring place and I used to help my dad w/ customers at his shop.Also my major isnt even business, its computer science so thats why Im surprised.Anyways do you have any tips on what I should know abut marketing ,etc.
Scientists track British genetic adaptation over 2,000 yearsNew research by geneticists working with data from the UK10K Project to study the genomes of 10,000 Britons has for the first time detailed exactly how the genetic traits of the people of the British Isles have evolved over the past 2,000 years Nature .Lockheed Martin plans Mars orbital lab for 2028Later today, Lockheed Martin is set to unveil details about its planned Mars Base Camp: a laboratory that will house six astronauts in orbit about Mars, which the company hopes to have in place by 2028 Popular Science .The system uses cameras, acoustic and radio frequency sensors to monitor stadia and business premises that could be at risk of unwanted drone activity.The camera connector just fits on the right-hand side of the Zero's board in what Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton calls "dumb luck."Produced by Bruno Wu and producer Larry Kasanoff's Threshold Global Studios, Kasanoff says that it's an ensemble piece with a Chinese cast; the first part of a trilogy that's "not at all what you think; it will be a cool surprise."Book now for WIRED MoneyWIRED Money showcases the innovative thinkers who are re-imagining the financial sector.
Ten years ago, he said, most researchers worked with a high-end PC and hoped there was enough disk space to run their applications.Now, Howard says, you run your compute and have your data stored in a national facility, you get more compute than you have in the local environment, and then you pull your results back across the network.As someone whose history stretches back to Australia's early Internet, with involvement in early OpenFlow developments, and three-and-a-half years after the NCI first investigated OpenStack, Howard has an insider's view of OpenStack's effectiveness today.That's a big thing for the NCI, because its scientific HPC is characterised by very big but relatively short-lived data flows, a large number of users, and facilities all over the country.The drive to commodity into networking equipment, vendors offering low-cost switches, all combined with an SDN control plane, offer significant savings, he said, but it's the sophistication that's demonstrated the importance of SDN to the NCI.Rather than being a painfully difficult environment to use, Howard said, the NCI's attention with OpenStack has been trying to balance which features we make available at what time, how we take advantage of those features, and how to train the researchers to take the best advantage of that environment.
The search engine compares the semantic language – the real meaning of the content – in the documents to reveal unseen patterns and connections in fractions of a second.I saw a demo of the platform in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and it has a lot of interesting potential.Omnity s basic search is still free, but its subscription packages and special information databases start at $100.The specialized information that Omnity is offering includes Securities and Exchange Commission filings and records, patents, Library of Congress data, court precedents and legal records, scientific journals, pharmaceutical and biomedical trials, financial reports, and U.S. Congress reports and legal history.Discovering unexpected connections between diverse knowledge domains reveals unique insights that sharpen focus and drive innovation.We created Omnity to help scientists, engineers, medical professionals, lawyers and financial people cope with the explosion of data and knowledge that is happening in every field of study.Omnity is designed to be powerful yet easy to use, and is priced so that organizations large and small can access this transformative technology.Unlike conventional search, Omnity said it can find related documents even when they do not cite or link to one another.The company is offering introductory pricing of its commercial service in five tiers, with the first month free for all paid tiers:
Flights are getting cheaper this year, but prices vary depending on your destination.To figure out whether a flight is actually a good deal, Luiz Maykot, a data science analyst for Adobe, came up with a simple formula.The formula is pretty straightforward: multiply the trip s round-trip miles by $0.032, then add $230.Maykot explains how he came up with the formula:I calculated the average price paid by everyone in the data sample, based on how many days in advance they purchased their tickets up to 300 days in advance .Put simply, the number you crunch gives you a general idea of what the majority of flight prices have been in recent years.MarketWatch explains the formula in a little more detail and also includes a calculator to help you do the math, so check out the full post at the link below.
Report authors call on gov.UK, business to up their spendLeaving the EU could mean UK universities lose a whopping £1bn research funding, according to report released by Digital Science today.Their data showed the UK was the fifth-largest producer of science and technical articles behind USA, China, Japan and Germany, despite receiving just 1.63 per cent from public and private sectors in research.Figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development reveal that investment from UK companies contribute only 1.06 per cent of GDP toward research and development.This is below the average of many European countries and is almost 80 per cent lower than the R investment made by German businesses.Should the UK vote to leave next month, the report stresses that significant political efforts will need to be made to plug the funding gap and avoid long-term damage to the research and education sector .Ridley said that some of the biggest scientific organisations including The European Space Agency, The European Molecular Biology Organisation and CERN, were not EU-membership exclusive and was unfair if the EU parliament held the power to decide how money was spent.
All Images: NASA/JHUAPL/SwRIPluto may be long gone, but NASA s New Horizons spacecraft is by no means finished with the outer solar system.For the second time, New Horizons has observed 1994 JR1, a 90-mile wide Kuiper Belt Object KBO that orbits over 3 billion miles from the sun.Here was JR1 back in November:And here it is last month, from a distance of just 69 million miles:The latest observations allowed the New Horizons science team to start fleshing out a portrait of the lonely space rock.We can now pinpoint the location of JR1 to within 600 miles, giving us our most precise KBO orbit to date.Indeed, these are our first tantalizing glimpses of a mysterious realm whose existence astronomers only learned of a few decades ago.You can think of the Kuiper Belt as a vast cryobank, filled with primordial chunks of rock that have not been touched or transformed since the birth of the solar system.
When James Young lost an arm and a part of a leg in an accident on his morning commute, he thought his love of playing video games was over.But after spotting an advert he began to work with prosthetics designers to create a unique limb that looks like something straight out of a science fiction movie.
Microsoft says it has a long history with the UK and hints future investment could be affected if country votes to leave the EUMicrosoft says it wants the UK to vote to remain in the European Union In the upcoming referendum on 23 June, suggesting it would be less likely to invest in the event of a Brexit .Read More: Michael Van der Bel s IT LifeMicrosoft in the EUmichle van der belMicrosoft opened its first international office in the UK in 1982 and now has 5,000 employees working in support, marketing, gaming, communications, cybersecurity and computer science research and recently opened a global centre of excellence for artificial intelligence.At key moments in our international growth we have specifically chosen to invest in our capabilities here in the UK.Indeed, one third have no plan in place to cope with a Brexit, which could cause compliance and recruitment issues.The majority support the UK s membership because it makes the country more attractive to international investment, makes the UK more globally competitive and gives it a more favourable trading relationship with other members.A vote to remain is a vote to ensure the UK voice is at the heart of policies that support the UK s most innovative sector to continue to grow and create jobs.
He wrote on his website: "This summer, my recommended reading list has a good dose of books with science and math at their core.Seveneves by Neal StephensonCredit: Neal StephensonLuckily for most, the first book on the list isn't lines and lines of code or an in-depth look at difficult maths problems - it's an interesting-looking science-fiction novel.The Vital Question by Nick LaneCredit: AmazonWell, The Telegraph's book critics certainly think this is one you should pick up - they gave it four stars.Even if the details of Nick s work turn out to be wrong, I suspect his focus on energy will be seen as an important contribution to our understanding of where we come from."Today, of course, Japan is intensely interesting to anyone who follows global economics.Those questions are at the heart of this series of dialogues between Ryoichi, an economist who died in 2013, and his son Hiroshi, founder of the Internet company Rakuten.
Spraying the wheat crops with pesticide could be a thing of the past if EU gets current with scienceIn a rebuke to the EU, and environmental activists worldwide, the biggest scientific metastudy yet conducted of genetically modified foods concludes they re good for human health and the environment.The National Academics of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, an advisory body of scientists, finds no evidence of risks over conventional crops, and huge benefits in the shape of increased yields in poor countries, and healthier crops.More resilient GM foods reduce reliance on pesticides.Since then, it s merely tried to strangle them by heavy regulation, giving member states the right to impose their own obstacles in the shape of temporary bans so much for single market harmonisation .Paul Dacre s Frankenfoods campaign, and the media s promotion of work by the now discredited scientist Árpád Pusztai were instrumental in fuelling revulsion against GM crops.Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore now promotes vitamin A-fortified blindness-fighting Golden Rice, which Western NGOs are attempting to restrict in the countries that most need it.
From science fiction to economics, entrepreneurism to human history, it's a solid batch of choices, with something to keep all minds occupied during a beach break or long flight.Five thousand years later and their progeny form seven distinct races and they must journey to an alien: Earth.People figure out that in two years a cataclysmic meteor shower will wipe out all life on Earth, so the world unites on a plan to keep humanity going by launching as many spacecraft as possible into orbit.Even if the details of Nick s work turn out to be wrong, I suspect his focus on energy will be seen as an important contribution to our understanding of where we come from."As founder and CEO of Rakuten, one of the world's largest Internet companies, author Hiroshi Mikitani brings an entrepreneur's perspective to bear on the country's economic stagnation.Today, of course, Japan is intensely interesting to anyone who follows global economics.
