Iscritto al Registro Pubblico della Stampa del Tribunale di Bari in data 25/02/2003  
De Leonardis: “Ancora ambiguo l’atteggiamento del Governo nei confronti dei pescatori di Manfredonia”  

“L’assenza del ministro Galan all’incontro di ieri al Ministero per le Politiche agricole per la richiesta della concessione di una deroga al regolamento comunitario che limita pesantemente la pesca del bianchetto e del rossetto, è l’ennesimo indice della scarsa attenzione finora riservata dal governo nazionale a forte trazione leghista ai problemi e alle emergenze, alle istanze provenienti dal nostro territorio”.
Lo sostiene in una nota il Consigliere regionale e presidente della settima Commissione Affari Istituzionali, Giannicola De Leonardis che continua comunque a sollecitare una soluzione di compromesso, con un’azione congiunta a livello istituzionale, Regione Puglia in primis, “per permettere ai pescatori di Manfredonia e a quanti operano nell’indotto almeno di limitare i danni per la stagione in corso, in attesa dell’elaborazione di un analitico dossier da spedire in tempi brevi a Bruxelles, per arrivare alla revisione di un regolamento fortemente penalizzante per un comparto trainante per l’economia di un’intera comunità”.
“Non si tratta di avallare delle irregolarità e di giustificare il mancato rispetto di norme vincolanti, così come successo con la vicenda del mancato rispetto delle quote latte da parte degli allevatori del nord – sottolinea l’esponente Udc - ma di rivedere l’intera politica comunitaria in materia attraverso una visione d’insieme e un’azione che deve prevedere invece uno sforzo comune e unità d’intenti, superando contrapposizioni legate all’appartenenza a schieramenti differenti e riconoscendo piena legittimità al Mezzogiorno d’Italia e in particolare alle aree che versano nelle posizioni più critiche”.
“Le conclusioni dell’incontro, nonostante le premesse, lasciano però spazio a un moderato ottimismo: tocca adesso a Regione e Governo fare la propria parte e fino in fondo – conclude De Leonardis - per non abbandonare al loro destino numerose famiglie e scongiurare ripercussioni drammatiche sia sul piano sociale che economico”./comunicato

SOSTIENILO INSIEME CON BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI  Bernardo Bertolucci, promotore della serata di raccolta fondi per il Nepal, sul set di Piccolo Buddha

In seguito ai terremoti che hanno colpito il Nepal, abbiamo ricevuto una richiesta di aiuto da parte della Fondazione Rarahil e dell'alpinista Fausto De Stefani: sono numerose le famiglie che hanno perso la loro casa e, in questo periodo in cui sta iniziando la stagione dei monsoni, un tetto e un riparo sono necessità che diventato ancor più urgenti. Per questo motivo, un nostro team sta per partire per il Nepal per portare tende agli sfollati di Kirtipur, una città a pochi chilometri dalla capitale Katmandu, e nel frattempo farà una valutazione delle necessità mediche per capire come intervenire su questo fronte.

I fondi necessari per l'acquisto e l'invio delle tende verranno raccolti grazie all'iniziativa "Bernardo Bertolucci per il Nepal", a cui siete tutti invitati giovedì 28 maggio.

Per chi può, l'appuntamento è a Roma, presso la sala Santa Cecilia dell’Auditorium di Roma, dove sarà possibile rivedere sul grande schermo il film "Piccolo Buddha": insieme al regista, saranno presenti sul palco Cecilia Strada, presidente di Emergency, Patrizia Bisi, coordinatrice per l'Italia del progetto "Children Village", altro beneficiario della serata, e il protagonista del film Keanu Reeves. I biglietti saranno acquistabili al costo di 50 e 100 euro in prevendita sul sito dell’Auditorium: www.auditorium.com.

Sarà possibile seguire la serata e partecipare alla raccolta fondi anche da casa: la diretta dell'evento verrà trasmessa in streaming su MYMOVIESLIVE - Nuovo Cinema Repubblica e si potrà seguire con un'offerta libera a partire da 3 euro.

Il Punto - 22 Maggio 

Dopo sette anni di crisi e di manovre, la spesa pubblica è o non è diminuita? Bisogna vedere bene i numeri. Gli investimenti pubblici sono scesi dal 5 per cento del Pil a circa il 3. La spesa per i dipendenti pubblici e per il back office dei ministeri è poco sopra al livello del 2007. Solo la spesa sociale – per quattro quinti, pensioni - è cresciuta di quattro punti fino al 21 per cento del Pil. Poi, dopo la decisione della Consulta, il dossier pensioni torna sul tavolo del governo. Che vuole consentire di andare in pensione prima ma con meno soldi. La riforma piace a imprese e sindacati ma farebbe crescere la spesa previdenziale. Sulle spalle dei giovani.
Come mettere l’insegnante giusto al posto giusto? Non certo con l’attuale sistema basato sull’illusione che, a parità di punteggio in graduatoria, tutti siano uguali e adatti a qualsiasi posto. La #buonascuola parte dal giusto principio che qualcuno sia responsabile di selezionare. Ma dovrà essere a sua volta valutato. Dopo le polemiche sui test Invalsi, l’Anvur sperimenta sui laureandi più bravi un sistema di valutazione - il Teco – che certifica su base volontaria le capacità trasversali (lettura, problem solving), le competenze richieste dalle imprese. Tanti dettagli da mettere a punto.
Al centro dell’ennesimo scandalo del calcioscommesse, la Lega pro (l’ex Serie C). È il terreno ideale per lo sviluppo di fenomeni malavitosi perché la maggior parte delle società ha i conti disastrati. Ci vogliono una governance migliore e trasparente accanto a sanzioni sportive severissime per chi falsa le partite.
Si cerca di rilanciare il prestito vitalizio ipotecario. Permette a proprietari anziani un finanziamento garantito dalla casa. Dovrebbe contribuire a rilanciare la domanda. Ma le condizioni sono onerose, convenienti per pochi.

La spesa pubblica? Ecco dove si è già tagliato
22.05.15
Massimo Bordignon

Non è vero che non si è fatto nulla sulla spesa pubblica. Pesanti sono stati gli interventi sugli investimenti, l’impiego pubblico e gli acquisti di beni e servizi. Ma la dinamica della spesa pensionistica continua a essere eccessiva. Anche prima della sentenza della Consulta. Il dilemma della flessibilità in uscita
22.05.15
Vincenzo Galasso 

Il governo ha affrontato con prontezza la questione della rivalutazione delle pensioni dopo la sentenza della Consulta. Più complessa è la partita della flessibilità in uscita. Che certo darebbe alcuni vantaggi ai lavoratori. Ma aumenterebbe la spesa pensionistica, almeno in un primo momento. Come mettere il professore giusto nella scuola giusta
22.05.15
Michele Pellizzari

La critica più forte alla “buona scuola” è la centralità del preside nella selezione dei docenti. Oggi, le assunzioni si fondano sul principio implicito che tutti gli abilitati in una classe di concorso possano insegnare ovunque con successo. Ma non è così. Il grado di discrezionalità da accettare. Anche l’università ha il suo Invalsi, si chiama Teco
22.05.15
Maria De Paola

Il test Teco è rivolto agli studenti universitari che stanno concludendo il loro ciclo di studi. Mira a valutare competenze generaliste e trasversali. Difficile, però, considerarlo uno strumento di valutazione della qualità dell’offerta didattica degli atenei. Come evitare il clima di sospetto. L'eterno ritorno del calcioscommesse
21.05.15
Fausto Panunzi

Il calcioscommesse è estremamente difficile da debellare, come la cronaca degli ultimi anni mostra. E non solo in Italia. Gli antidoti proposti in questi giorni sono illusori. E anche un ricambio ai vertici del calcio servirebbe a poco. Un fenomeno con cui convivere? Certamente non va ignorato.
Prestito vitalizio ipotecario: perché lo chiedono in pochi
21.05.15
Raffaele Lungarella

Torna il prestito vitalizio ipotecario. Permette a proprietari anziani di ricevere un finanziamento garantito da un’ipoteca di primo grado sulla loro abitazione. Lo strumento dovrebbe rilanciare la domanda interna. Ma il prestito ha condizioni onerose ed è conveniente solo per pochi.

E' uscito il nuovo numero di CorCom - 2236 - CorCom - Economia digitale e Innovazione CorCom CorCom    n° 1741 del 22 Maggio 2015       Direttore responsabile: Gildo Campesato       EDITORIALE         Scoreboard Italia Al di là della polemica su come realizzare le reti Ngn e su chi poserà i network ottici, si sottovaluta che è sui servizi che si gioca la competitività di un Paese. Intanto l'Italia arranca nel digital scoreboard Ue, e le farebbe bene guardare oltre i confini nazionali         TOP STORIES         Italia digitale, è quasi giro di boa: cosa manca alla svolta buona? Con la strategia per la Crescita digitale e il piano banda ultralarga il governo punta a portare il nostro Paese ai vertici europei. Ma l'azione di Palazzo Chigi rischia di arenarsi su due ostacoli storici: dispersione delle risorse e governance inadeguata. Ce la faranno Renzi e Madia a superarli?         Madia: "La PA sarà più semplice, digitale cuore della riforma" Il ministro spiega a CorCom come raggiungerà gli obiettivi dell'Agenda digitale italiana: “Non solo progetti digitali. La strategia del governo cambierà il modo di lavorare dei dipendenti pubblici e anche quello di fruire dei servizi”         Barberis: "Integrare i servizi per avvicinare l'utente alla PA online" Il consigliere per l'Innovazione di Matteo Renzi: "Gli italiani sono disposti a dialogare online con lo Stato. Ma i servizi sono discontinui: così la domanda viene scoraggiata. Italia Login è a un punto di sviluppo avanzato. Primi progetti dopo l'estate"         Spid, senza business model il sistema rischia di incagliarsi Moriondo: "Momento cruciale. Riconoscere le identità già attive". Perego: "Si deve capire quale sarà per i privati il modello di ricavo a fronte dei costi per fornire le identità"         Fuggetta: "Agid ha bisogno di una sponda politica solida" L'amministratore delegato di Cefriel: "Oggi la tempestività può essere anche più importante dei costi. Per arrivare alla trasformazione digitale del Paese è imprescindibile semplificare il percorso delle decisioni"         Mini trinceee, la svolta di Delrio: "Dossier strategico" Manca ancora la possibilità di riempire le mini-fessure per i cavi con materiali innovativi. Il regolamento che dovrebbe sbloccare lo scavo tecnologico è stato finora contrastato da diverse lobby. Eppure è in grado di tagliare i costi e accelerare i tempi del piano per la banda ultralarga         Avenia: "Il nuovo regolamento scavi accelererà il piano banda larga" Il presidente di Asstel: il nuovo provvedimento che dovrebbe bloccare l'utilizzo delle tecniche della minitrincea con riempimenti innovativi sarebbe in grado di abbassare del 30% i costi per la posa dei cavi per l'Internet veloce         Italia digitale, Nasi (Bocconi): "Cambiare la governance" Il direttore Area Public Management and Policy della Sda Bocconi: "Serve una guida unica, il modello sia Us Digital Service"         Comella (Privacy): "La centralizzazione aumenterà la sicurezza" Parla il responsabile Tecnologie digitali e sicurezza informatica del Garante: "Finora troppa dispersione negli investimenti"         Aiuti alle zone nere? Attenti ai paletti Ue Il piano del Governo per il finanziamento della banda ultralarga non sarebbe compatibile con la disciplina comunitaria in materia di aiuti di Stato         Profilazione, anima del commercio Data protection, il Garante italiano raccoglie le sfide interpretative che la tecnologie pone al diritto         Data retention, in Europa c'è chi dice sì e chi dice no Anche la Slovacchia dichiara illegittima la conservazione di dati da parte degli operatori di Tlc. Si infoltisce il gruppo dei Paesi che rinunciano alla memoria dopo la sentenza della Corte di Giustizia Ue.

Mental 'map' and 'compass' are two separate systems, researchers say

Posted: 21 May 2015 06:06 PM PDT

In a new study in mice, researchers have shown that mental 'map' and 'compass' systems work independently. A cue that unambiguously provided both types of information allowed the mice to determine their location but not the direction they were facing.

Mood instability common to mental health disorders, associated with poor outcomes

Posted: 21 May 2015 06:06 PM PDT

Mood instability occurs in a wide range of mental disorders, and is not exclusive to affective conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder, new research confirms. The research also found that mood instability was associated with poorer clinical outcomes.

Smoking, drug abuse could more than triple annual ER visits

Posted: 21 May 2015 01:05 PM PDT

Smokers are four times more likely than non-smokers to become frequent visitors of emergency rooms, according to findings uncovered by a preliminary study by an emergency room utilization researcher. Also, substance abuse and psychiatric illness could triple annual ER visits.

Protein seen 'quaking' after chemical bond breaks

Posted: 21 May 2015 01:04 PM PDT

Significant cost savings found in pediatric telemedicine consults

Posted: 21 May 2015 12:18 PM PDT

A comprehensive study has been completed to determine whether pediatric telemedicine consultations with rural emergency departments save money compared to telephone consults.

Lowly 'new girl' chimps form stronger female bonds

Posted: 21 May 2015 12:18 PM PDT

Low-ranking 'new girl' chimpanzees seek out other gal pals with similar status, finds a new study. The results are based on 38 years' worth of daily records for 53 adult females in Gombe National Park, Tanzania, where Jane Goodall first started studying chimpanzees in the 1960s. The researchers are still working out whether the low-ranking pairs are true buddies, friends of convenience, or merely acquaintances.

Savannahs slow climate change, experts say

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:41 AM PDT

Tropical rainforests have long been considered the Earth's lungs, sequestering large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and thereby slowing down the increasing greenhouse effect and associated human-made climate change. Scientists in a global research project now show that the vast extensions of semi-arid landscapes occupying the transition zone between rainforest and desert dominate the ongoing increase in carbon sequestration by ecosystems globally, as well as large fluctuations between wet and dry years. This is a major rearrangement of planetary functions.

Obese teens' brains unusually susceptible to food commercials, study finds

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:41 AM PDT

TV food commercials disproportionately stimulate the brains of overweight teenagers, including the regions that control pleasure, taste and -- most surprisingly -- the mouth, suggesting they mentally simulate unhealthy eating habits that make it difficult to lose weight later in life.

New model predicts fish population response to dams, other ecological factors

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:40 AM PDT

Researchers have developed a model to assess how dams affect the viability of sea-run fish species that need to pass dams as they use both fresh and marine waters during their lifetimes. The aim is to test how varying passage efficiency at dams related to survival rates for these species, using a model of endangered Atlantic salmon as a case study.

Flames fan lasting fallout from Chernobyl

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:40 AM PDT

In the years following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, forest fires billowed plumes of contaminated smoke, carrying radioactive particles throughout Europe on the wind. Now, researchers fear that a shift to a hotter, drier climate in Eastern Europe could increase the frequency of these fires.

Seismic signals used to track above-ground explosions

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:40 AM PDT

Researchers have determined that a tunnel bomb explosion by Syrian rebels was less than 60 tons as claimed by sources. Using seismic stations in Turkey, the scientists created a method to determine source characteristics of near earth surface explosions. They found the above-ground tunnel bomb blast under the Wadi al-Deif Army Base near Aleppo last spring was likely not as large as originally estimated and was closer to 40 tons.

For pollock surveys in Alaska, things are looking up

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:40 AM PDT

Scientists have turned their view of the nation's largest fishery upside down with upward-facing sonar systems that are mounted to the seafloor and monitor the passage of fish above. They just completed their first experimental deployment of the new system, and the data, though upside down, looked great. In the future, these systems might augment traditional, ship-based acoustic surveys.

New chemical technology boosts potency of targeted cancer therapy

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:40 AM PDT

A new chemical technology uses cancer cells' own protein-degrading machinery to destroy, rather than merely inhibit, cancer proteins. Researchers developed the strategy as a way to develop inhibitors of "undruggable" proteins and overcome drug resistance, a common shortcoming of targeted therapies. Resistance arises when tumors that originally responded to a particular therapy manage to circumvent the drug's effects and resume their growth.

Epstein-Barr virus co-infection may boost malaria mortality in childhood

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:40 AM PDT

Malaria researchers are calling attention to a trouble-maker whose effects may be underappreciated: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Their experiments with mice show that co-infection with a virus closely related to EBV can make a survivable malaria parasite infection lethal.

Intuitive control of robotic arm using thoughts alone

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:40 AM PDT

Through a clinical collaboration between Caltech, Keck Medicine of USC and Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, a 34-year-old paralyzed man is the first person in the world to have a neural prosthetic device implanted in a region of the brain where intentions are made, giving him the ability to perform a fluid hand-shaking gesture, drink a beverage, and even play 'rock, paper, scissors,' using a robotic arm.

Scientists have observed a sudden increase of ice loss in a previously stable region of Antarctica. The ice loss in the region is so large that it causes small changes in the gravity field of the Earth.

Partly human yeast show a common ancestor's lasting legacy

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:39 AM PDT

Despite a billion years of evolution separating humans from the baker's yeast in their refrigerators, hundreds of genes from an ancestor that the two species have in common live on nearly unchanged in them both, say biologists. The team created thriving strains of genetically engineered yeast using human genes and found that certain groups of genes are surprisingly stable over evolutionary time.

Can a viral co-infection impair immunity against Plasmodium and turn malaria lethal?

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:39 AM PDT

It is known that infections with certain viruses can weaken the immune response to another pathogen. A new study reports provocative findings in mice that infection with the mouse equivalent of Epstein-Barr virus can turn infections with certain parasites that cause malaria in mice (which are normally quickly suppressed by the immune system) into a lethal disease.

Proteins may slow memory loss in people with Alzheimer's

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:38 AM PDT

Certain proteins may slow the devastating memory loss caused by Alzheimer’s disease, according to a groundbreaking new study. The researchers found evidence that an elevated presence of a protein called neuronal pentraxin-2 may slow cognitive decline and reduce brain atrophy in people with Alzheimer's disease.

Mosquito sex-determining gene could help fight dengue fever

Posted: 21 May 2015 11:38 AM PDT

A gene responsible for sex determination in mosquitoes that can transmit yellow fever, dengue, and chikungunya viruses has been identified by researchers. Only female mosquitoes bite because they need blood for developing eggs, and researchers believe that a higher ratio of males could reduce disease transmission.

Cutting e-waste: Device will self-destruct when heated

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:37 AM PDT

Where do electronics go when they die? Most devices are laid to eternal rest in landfills. But what if they just dissolved away, or broke down to their molecular components so that the material could be recycled? Researchers have developed heat-triggered self-destructing electronic devices, a step toward greatly reducing electronic waste and boosting sustainability in device manufacturing. They also developed a radio-controlled trigger that could remotely activate self-destruction on demand.

Genetic maps help conservation managers maintain healthy bears

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:37 AM PDT

The finding is based on an analysis of tumor samples from 150 men with metastatic prostate cancer that no longer responded to standard hormone-blocking therapy.

Scientists unveil prostate cancer's 'Rosetta Stone'

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:37 AM PDT

Almost 90 percent of men with advanced prostate cancer carry genetic mutations in their tumors that could be targeted by either existing or new cancer drugs, a landmark new study reveals. Scientists now have created a comprehensive map of the genetic mutations within lethal prostate cancers that have spread around the body, in a paper being hailed as the disease's 'Rosetta Stone.'

New biotechnology for high efficiency purification of live human cells

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:36 AM PDT

Cell therapies require a purification step that isolates the desired cell types from contaminating cells. Normally cell surface receptors are used as markers to distinguish cell types, but undesired cell types also show these receptors, compromising purification. Evidence suggests microRNA may be a better marker.

Fossil of 425-million-year-old parasite with host discovered in England

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:36 AM PDT

Scientists have discovered a new species of fossil in England -- and identified it as an ancient parasitic intruder. The fossil species -- a 'tongue worm', which has a worm-like body and a head and two pairs of limbs -- is actually a parasite whose representatives today live internally in the respiratory system of a host, which it enters when it is eaten.

Memories influence choice of food

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:36 AM PDT

The stronger our memory is of a certain food, the more likely we are to choose it -- even if it is the more unattractive option. Psychologists conducted a study on how memory influences our choices by offering various foods and using scans to track brain activity. The researchers were able to show that the influence of memory is mediated by increasing communication between the relevant brain areas.

Researchers discover molecular approach to promote cancer cell death

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:36 AM PDT

Lung cancer researchers have discovered a novel strategy to exploit apoptosis, a form of programmed cell death, for the treatment of lung cancer. The protein Bcl-2 is a known target for cancer treatment since it allows cancer cells to evade cell death via apoptosis.

Thunder god vine used in traditional Chinese medicine is a potential obesity treatment

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:36 AM PDT

An extract from the thunder god vine, which has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine, reduces food intake and causes up to a 45 percent decrease in body weight in obese mice. The weight-loss compound, called Celastrol, produces its potent effects by enhancing the action of an appetite-suppressing hormone called leptin. The findings are an early indicator that Celastrol could be developed into a drug for the treatment of obesity.

Why you need one vaccine for measles and many for the flu

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:36 AM PDT

While the influenza virus mutates constantly and requires a yearly shot that offers a certain percentage of protection, old reliable measles needs only a two-dose vaccine during childhood for lifelong immunity. A new study has an explanation: The surface proteins that the measles virus uses to enter cells are ineffective if they suffer any mutation, meaning that any changes to the virus come at a major cost.

Our bond with dogs may go back more than 27,000 years

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:36 AM PDT

Dogs' special relationship to humans may go back 27,000 to 40,000 years, according to genomic analysis of an ancient Taimyr wolf bone. Earlier genome-based estimates have suggested that the ancestors of modern-day dogs diverged from wolves no more than 16,000 years ago, after the last Ice Age.

One-of-a-kind star discovered, nicknamed 'Nasty'

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:35 AM PDT

Astronomers have spent decades trying to determine the oddball behavior of an aging star nicknamed "Nasty 1" residing in our Milky Way galaxy. Looking at the star using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers had expected to see a bipolar outflow of twin lobes of gas from the star. The astronomers were surprised, however, to find a pancake-shaped disk of gas encircling the star. The vast disk is nearly 1,000 times the diameter of our solar system.

Compound has potential for treating rheumatoid arthritis

Posted: 21 May 2015 09:11 AM PDT

A new study outlines a chemical compound with potential for treating rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects an estimated 1.3 million people in the world. Characterized by stiff, swollen joints, it's a progressive disease that occurs when the body's immune system attacks its own cells. Inflammation in the lining of the joints leads to loss of bone and cartilage. People who have rheumatoid arthritis lose mobility and joint function without adequate treatment.

Snacking on protein can improve appetite control, diet quality in teens

Posted: 21 May 2015 09:10 AM PDT

Although eating high-protein, afternoon snacks can aid appetite control in adults, little information exists to guide parents on what types of snacks might benefit their adolescent children. Now, researchers have found that afternoon snacking, particularly on high-protein-soy foods, reduces afternoon appetite, delays subsequent eating and reduces unhealthy evening snacking in teenagers.

Personalized care during eye visits didn't lower HbA1c levels for diabetics

Posted: 21 May 2015 09:10 AM PDT

Providing personalized education and risk assessment for patients with diabetes when they visit the ophthalmologist did not improve glycemic control as measured by hemoglobin A1c levels compared with patients who received usual care, according to a study.

Pliability, elasticity of skin increase following wrinkle treatment with Botox

Posted: 21 May 2015 09:10 AM PDT

Human skin has three biomechanical features: strength, pliability (the ability to stretch) and elasticity (the ability to recoil). As people age, these properties change and the loss of skin elasticity appears to be the most prominent. Now researchers report that skin pliability and elasticity improved after treatment with onabotulinum toxin (Botox) for mild facial wrinkles, and the effect lasted for up to four months.

Injury rates from wearing high-heeled shoes have doubled

Posted: 21 May 2015 09:09 AM PDT

New research shows that high-heeled-shoe-related injuries doubled between 2002 and 2012. The frequency and severity of those injuries were sufficient to make the investigators suggest that wearing the appropriate shoes for the appropriate occasion and being aware of one's surroundings are good ideas.

Blood to feeling: Scientists turn adult human blood cells into neurons

Posted: 21 May 2015 09:09 AM PDT

Stem cell scientists can now directly convert adult human blood cells to both central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) neurons as well as neurons in the peripheral nervous system (rest of the body) that are responsible for pain, temperature and itch perception. This means that how a person's nervous system cells react and respond to stimuli, can be determined from his blood.

Symbiosis turns messy in 13-year cicadas

Posted: 21 May 2015 07:49 AM PDT

Bacteria that live in the guts of cicadas have split into many separate but interdependent species in a strange evolutionary phenomenon that leaves them reliant on a bloated genome, a new paper has found.

Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes' quest for fire

Posted: 21 May 2015 07:49 AM PDT

The eastern diamondback rattlesnake has lost 97 percent of its habitat since becoming an American icon on the Revolutionary-era 'Don't Tread on Me' flag. New research demonstrates the critical nature of one element of the diamondback's home range, pine savanna. For conservationists seeking surrogate habitats for the now-rare species' dwindling population, the results underscore the need for prescribed fire management to maintain the open-canopy forest and its ecosystem.

Hiding your true colors may make you feel morally tainted

Posted: 21 May 2015 07:49 AM PDT

The advice, whether from Shakespeare or a modern self-help guru, is common: Be true to yourself. New research suggests that this drive for authenticity -- living in accordance with our sense of self, emotions, and values -- may be so fundamental that we actually feel immoral and impure when we violate our true sense of self. This sense of impurity, in turn, may lead us to engage in cleansing or charitable behaviors as a way of clearing our conscience.

Brain tumors: Millimeter by millimeter towards a better prognosis

Posted: 21 May 2015 07:49 AM PDT

A method known as navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) has been gaining importance in neurosurgery for some time now. Among other applications, it is used to map brain tumors before an operation and to test whether important regions of the brain, for example motor and language areas, are affected. Doctors have now shown that preoperative nTMS analysis of motor areas improves the prognosis of patients with malignant brain tumors.

Field study shows how a GM crop can have diminishing success at fighting off insect pest

Posted: 21 May 2015 07:49 AM PDT

A new study finds the toxin in a widely used genetically modified (GM) crop is having little impact on the crop pest corn earworm -- which is consistent with predictions made almost 20 years ago that were largely ignored. The study may be a signal to pay closer attention to warning signs about the development of resistance in agricultural pests to GM crops.

Odds are that chronic gamblers are often also depressed

Posted: 21 May 2015 07:48 AM PDT

If a young man is a chronic gambler, the chances are extremely high that he also suffers from depression, finds a study that is is the first to investigate the extent to which gambling and depression develop hand-in-hand from the teenage years to early adulthood.

Shape-shifting plastic developed

Posted: 21 May 2015 07:47 AM PDT

Researchers have developed a process to make a thermoset that can be reshaped and reused. The new plastic is a shape-memory polymer, so named because the material can “remember” its original shape and return to it after being deformed with heat or other forces.

Imbue Tea Infuser Brews Using Magnets

Posted: 21 May 2015 06:30 PM PDT

Imbue tea magnetic tea infuser

Many tea drinkers will tell you that for superior flavor, the best option is loose leaf tea.

Unfortunately, the drawback to using loose leaf is the mess involved with brewing it. This is especially true if you are away from home.

But a group of Western Washington University students have created a product they believe will make brewing loose leaf tea on the go easy and mess free.

The group has dubbed their creation Imbue, the magnetic tea infusing vessel. It’s a travel mug crafted from shatter-resistant borosilicate glass with a magnetic bamboo lid and stainless steel strainer. The magnetic Imbue tea infuser also comes with a removable natural fabric sleeve with a no-slip suede lining

The group claims the stainless steel strainer magnetically connects to the lid with ease. No need to twist the infuser into place or fumble with clamps. Once the strainer is in place, tea is brewed by flipping Imbue upside down.

After an initial small production run that sold out at the first showing, the group has decided to go big and start production on a large scale. To get things going, Imbue is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter. The campaign met its goal the first day and has now raised more than $154,000 in pledges.

For more information on Imbue check out the Kickstarter video below.

According to the Imbue Kickstarter page, money raised will go to more than just production:

“Our Kickstarter campaign will not only enable us to produce the highest quality product possible, but also help support the WWU student chapter of IDSA, Industrial Design Society of America. IDSA provides opportunities by putting on design events, educating students with guest speakers, and arranging job shadows with different design firms around the country.”

Instead of going an entirely different route, the team behind the Imbue tea infuser seeks to simplify and refine the infusion method. The infuser’s combination of glass, wood, and stainless steel adds to Imbue’s appeal, particularly with the trendy coffee shop crowd.

While the trendy and aesthetic design makes Imbue desirable to look at, it’s the magnetic lid that lends the Imbue tea infuser its functionality. It’s an innovative design that could cut down on the mess and frustrations of brewing loose leaf tea.

Currently, you can pre-order the Imbue tea infuser for $29. That’s not a bad price for a product like this on Kickstarter. There is no expected shipping date listed on the Imbue campaign page, though.

ReTargeter Creator Aims to Replace CRM with New Immediately App

Posted: 21 May 2015 04:30 PM PDT

immediately app

Arjun Arora, creator of ReTargeter, which presents highly targeted ads to consumers, moved on quickly after selling his six-year-old startup this past March. And now a new app called Immediately is his new gig.

The Immediately app is designed to integrate deeply with Gmail and Salesforce to help salespeople better manage their workflow. It does so by providing the ability to monitor leads and log phone calls. It also notifies users when recipients open emails, among other things.

The startup is located at 2 Mint Plaza in San Francisco.

“I joined as a late co-founder,” Arora told Small Business Trends in an exclusive interview.

He first met co-founders CTO James Mock and CEO Branko Cerny in October 2013 when the two were just starting out.

“Two brilliant young first-time founders had gotten the company to a great place and it made sense for me to join and help take the company to a new level,” he said. “When I was ready to get back into operating I happened to reconnect and it all made sense.”

Replacing CRM?

Mock and Branko initially focused their efforts on an email organizer app but later decided to focus specifically on sales with Immediately. The platform aims for nothing less than to replace the CRM concept with a mobile program that is “data-driven” and “highly automated.”

It’s deeply invested in “becoming the one product that a sales rep wants to use day in and day out,” Arora noted on Immediately’s website.

Noting that more than 70 percent of lost deals happen due to slow reaction time, the program aims to fix that by freeing up salespeople to focus more on the selling process itself.

The Immediately app has gotten kudos from the likes of Peter Kazanjy, Monster’s Vice President of Products and Technology, who said:

“Two things are important in sales: activity and timing. Immediately gives you both. The ability to react in real time to a prospect with a logged call or a templated, instrumented email is game changing.”

The Immediately app has also gotten funding. Cofounder Cerny told TechCrunch that Immediately had raised $2 million in funding and was working with pilot customers, including Tapsense, UserVoice, NatureBox, Spark Central, New Relic and ZenPayroll.

Immediately’s investors include Streamlined Ventures, Maiden Lane, Galvanize VC, Queensbridge, Friendster and Nuzzel founder Jonathan Abrams, TalentBin co-founder Peter Kazanjy, EdgeSpring co-founder Ryan Lange, and HootSuite CEO Ryan Holmes.

Before Immediately

Arora’s earlier company ReTargeter was purchased  for an undisclosed price in late March by Sellpoints, which distributes media content for manufacturers.

“It started as a business partnership and turned into an acquisition,” Arora told Small Business Trends. “It started as a solution that their clients could use and to help them win more business and then turn it into an acquisition.”

The acquisition benefits SellPoints by enabling it to combine its massive collection of consumer data with ReTargeter’s ad network to bolster and expand efforts to reach online shoppers.

Productivity is imperative in your small business. It leads directly to profitability.

But productivity means different things to different people.

Certainly it involves effectively managing your team and workforce. It includes things like effective time management and good communications and collaboration with your team too.

But today it’s also about leveraging the powerful technologies available to all small businesses.

It’s about technologies like the cloud.

The cloud gives you a convenient place to store important files and projects. It allows you to then easily share these files with your team and clients. And it provides automatic backup of all work. (Imagine no more need to email important documents to team members or carefully track revisions.)

Want to measure how cloud technology is improving the productivity in your business?

Calculate the saved man hours in manual data entry and other activities. Estimate the money saved on automating further activities; simply calculate how much time each of these activities takes and multiply this by an hourly rate. Implement integration between cloud apps, a way of saving even more time for your employees. Finally, calculate what you’ll save in software maintenance costs.

All of these factors contribute to what might be called a more “dynamic” business — one that is productive, grows and uses its money wisely and efficiently.

Want to learn more?

Join us for the Microsoft “How to Grow a Dynamic Business” Chat from 12 noon to 1 p.m. PST (3 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST) Thursday, May 28, 2015 on Twitter.

How The Face of Tipping is Changing Due to Technology — Are You Prepared?

Posted: 21 May 2015 12:30 PM PDT

tipping for services

Today’s newer payment apps and platforms can be pre-programmed for certain tipping amounts and seem to be resulting in higher tips for wait staff, cab drivers, and others.

For some entrepreneurs, this is good news. Even restaurateurs can benefit from their wait staff getting higher tips. Big tips tend to lead to happier employees, which generally fuels better customer service. And happier customers are willing to tip more.

Use of these new payment platforms has even spread beyond restaurants into other industries. Customers use them to pay and drop heftier tips at beauty salons, in taxicabs and anywhere else tipping applies.

Some of the key payment platforms include PayPal, Square, Breadcrumb, and Apple Pay. Even Facebook has debuted a new payment feature. These apps and platforms are designed to make paying simpler. But they’ve also impacted tipping.

Tech research firm Software Advice recently issued a new report in which it noted that digital platforms have helped fuel an increase in tipping because they ease the whole payment process.

Sometimes the act of tipping may be influenced by the simple design of the mobile payment system itself.

For example, a recent Iowa State study cites how one mobile payment company influences consumers to tip. Per the study:

“Upon swiping their credit or debit card, consumers then need to choose among … preloaded tip amounts (15 percent, 20 percent, 25 percent), or to enter their customized tip amount, or decide not to tip at all.”

The interface itself is credited for raising “the proportion of tipping by 38 percent.”

In a post on TechCrunch, researcher Nir Eyal presents at least one supposition as to the reason why, explaining:

“For one, digital interfaces make it just as easy to tip as to not tip — a marked change from the way we used to pay in the past. When cash was king, anyone not wanting to give a tip could easily leave the money and dash. ‘Whoops, my bad!’ However, with a digital payment system the transaction isn’t complete until the buyer makes an explicit tipping choice. Clicking on the ‘No Tip’ button is suddenly its own decision. This additional step makes all the difference to those who may have previously avoided taking care of their server.”

The Software Advice report further notes some factors that might influence customer tipping. Here are some examples:

Forty-one percent of respondents said proximity to a server or cashier increased the likelihood they would leave a tip. Eighty-six percent preferred using an iPad to enter a tip themselves instead of having a server do it. However, 35 percent of female respondents said they would be likely to leave a higher tip if the server were to input it for them.

If you wish to encourage tipping of your employees or staff, consider some of the possibilities these new tends present:

Promote the availability of mobile payments as an option in your business. Consider signage that encourages gratuities and think about ways to promote tipping via your mobile presence and marketing.

Public Relations for Small Businesses — Does That Exist?

Posted: 21 May 2015 10:00 AM PDT

matthew bird

There’s an overabundance of public relations agencies and despite their high costs — or maybe because of them — they’re not trusted. If you do hire one, you’ll get no guarantees.

There are 29 million businesses in the U.S., but fewer than one percent are represented by PR agencies.

“When you come from the agency world, you know where inefficiencies, mistrust, and disconnects with the non-PR world come from,” said Matthew Bird in an interview with Small Business. Bird is a digital media industry veteran who intends to shake up the industry he worked most of his life in.

In contrast to PR, large retailers are an example of a trusted sector. People gravitate to stores with buyer-friendly return policies and prices, such as 1-800-FLOWERS.

Consumers have certain expectations when they buy from chains and franchises, thanks to standardization in quality control and sourced products, among other things.

With this in mind, Bird wants America to get familiar with a concept he calls “fractional PR” and a new franchise model.  His new company 1-800-PublicRelations Inc. allows small and medium sized businesses to get the highest level of PR service (“Tier 1″, in industry parlance), but on an a la carte basis. Businesses getting a la carte services from the franchise would get “what they request, nothing more, nothing less, and everybody’s happy,” he added.

What’s Different Compared to PR Agencies?

In old PR models, clients could burn through retainers quickly and without much to show for it. In the franchise model, if services aren’t needed, loss of investment is a non-issue. Clients only pay for the services they use.

“The majority of businesses want this type of transaction-based, low-risk model,” Bird added. In 2014, their first year of business, more than 290 companies used 1-800-PublicRelations, Inc.

The company is using cloud-based tech to parse and sort PR teams and coordinate efficiency and revenue sharing. One benefit of the franchise is that if a franchisee feels under-equipped to execute on a specific deliverable, he or she can reach out and revenue share with other franchisees, working together as one company to honor a client request which might have been beyond the scope of just one.

“When you see an industry about to change, it’s because a precipice has been reached,” Bird said “A lot of companies are frustrated with PR and IR agencies because they’re not getting the value they were expecting.”

What’s PR Good For, Anyway?

PR agencies operate on a few basic foundations. On one side, there’s research, consulting, strategic messaging and branding. Many agencies are strong on these, but then there’s an execution side, which many agencies aren’t great at.

Smaller agencies, often called “PR boutiques”, are typically started by ex-employees of larger firms striking out on their own, but with the support systems, infrastructure and other aspects common in a large agency go away, making boutique or solo PR execution a nightmare in many cases.

Buying new technologies and learning special cloud functions are examples of challenges Bird’s franchisees (regardless of tier) won’t need to spend time or energy on, because the corporate side would provide continuity and stability on the backend. This allows the franchisees to focus on account management and fulfilling customer requests, such as media bookings and content development.

Is This the Future of Small Business Public Relations?

Maybe.

There are big players in the PR world today, but lately, even they’ve been questioning what their future is going to look like. Trends are changing and there’s a growing need to serve small businesses, and to gain their trust for the long haul.

Boutique PR companies by themselves haven’t been the solution. Many boutiques and big agency initiatives offer isolated strengths and tout them as unique selling propositions. But isolated strengths are not cohesive solutions, even if tech-based. One ironic pain point is that there’s a wealth of technology to execute social media and content marketing plans, yet for PR’s workflow, there’s no cohesive glue or protocol to leverage it all.

“When you have a lot of technology, you need a fleet of people to manage it too,” Bird said. “Our idea is to streamline what’s important and what’s not important, and to consolidate traditional and digital pieces of PR in one turnkey solution. Everyone wins.”

Why Customer Experience Matters Now More Than Ever

Posted: 21 May 2015 05:00 AM PDT

Why Customer Experience Matters

On May 19, 2001, Apple Inc. officially opened its first two retail stores in Tysons Corner, Virginia, and Glendale, California.

The initial public opinion was along the lines of Apple being scoffed at and written off by critics as doomed from the start. But unfortunately for the critics, Apple’s retail operation would go on to become one of the most successful retail brands in existence, boasting the highest sales per-square-foot at $4,551.

What made Apple’s retail operation so valuable? Why did it succeed where others, most notably Gateway, had failed? The single biggest reason was the customer experience.

“The stores offered a much better way to deliver the product than being in the back of a Best Buy,” said Andrew Neff, an analyst at Bear Stearns & Co. Inc.

Whether your business is sales or service, there are valuable lessons that can still be learned from Apple’s underdog beginnings about why customer experience matters.

Why We’re Still Singing Their Praises

The first step when learning from Apple, or any other successful company, is to recognize the need to do so. Every business has one, unfortunately. This is often where companies experience their biggest missteps and flubs, especially in the B2B sector.

For far too long, companies and executives have been slow to adopt the principles of B2C marketing, coasting on their reputations or the status of the B2B market in general.

But it’s a growing world, and marketing strategies are evolving faster than ever before. As the phrase goes, you either adapt or you die.

Writing for CMO, McorpCX CEO Michael Hinshaw highlighted the dangers of solely sticking with B2B or B2C marketing strategies:

“Whether B2B or B2C, if you don’t start rethinking customer experience, you’re sunk. Sooner or later, an Apple or Amazon-like organization — or some other nimble, innovative firm — will come at your industry from the side and totally change the rules you’ve been playing by for years.”

He then went on to discuss his conversation with a senior executive of a large technology firm that was in the process of changing its approach to its customers because their expectations had evolved over the past ten years. What passed for customer service 10 years ago was no longer satisfactory. Often, these expectations are influenced by companies outside the traditional B2B market.

For example, in another article titled “Did You Know You’re Competing With Apple?” Mr. Hinshaw continues to make his case.

In the last few years, we’ve seen that the ways customers interact with and think of companies — and the experiences they expect in return — is changing. In some cases, dramatically.

Across the board, we’ve seen that customers aren’t just comparing the experience of dealing with you to the best in your industry — which they are, of course — but they’re comparing you against the best experiences in the world.

If Apple can make my mobile computing experience easy, why can’t you? If Virgin America can let me tailor my in-air experience (delivering food, music, movies, television when and how I want it) why can’t other airlines? If Amazon can get me books — heck, anything — in two days for little or no cost, or Zappos will take 10 pairs of shoes back – and pay for the shipping — why can’t you?”

What is it about Apple, as well as these other companies, that doesn’t just rethink the customer experience but break the mold entirely?

It’s Actually More Than “Just Showing Up”

First and foremost is the focus on customer service.

Specifically speaking, this does not mean just showing up will cut it, nor does it mean giving in to every whim. More than either of those things, it simply means that a certain amount of listening is required to get the experience just right.

Again, let’s take a look at what Apple does. Any iPhone, iPad or Mac user will happily tell you their experience of taking a device to an Apple Store, sitting at the Genius Bar and having the device repaired or replaced (oftentimes it’s done for free) and often with little regard to whether the device is still under warranty.

Why?

Because — and here’s the kicker — Apple has made the conscious decision to focus on customer happiness rather than profit.

The end result? As Steve Denning writes for Forbes, “Apple has grasped that making money is the result of the firm’s actions, not the goal.”

Don’t Hoard the Knowledge

Most likely, we’ve all seen the television show Hoarders (and if you haven’t, consider yourself lucky). It’s shocking to see how some are actually putting their own lives in danger for the sake of holding onto their belongings.

Unfortunately, many organizations do this same thing in their own way, and it’s not any prettier when viewing it from the perspective of the customer.

It gets even more worrisome when put in terms of the dollar amount. According to this recent article from Forbes, “Fortune 500 companies lose roughly “$31.5 billion a year by failing to share knowledge” (Babcock, 2004, p. 46), a very scary figure in this global economy filled with turbulence and change.”

That’s why a hallmark factor of the Apple Retail experience is the educational value. Throughout any given day, Apple Stores offer free in-house workshops to help individuals learn how to use their devices.

Whether it’s the basics of Mac OS X, getting the most from your iPhone or how to edit and enhance your photos, there’s a workshop you can sign up for.

Again, Apple has realized that the customer experience is about far more than the bottom line: it’s about helping customers gain the most benefit from the products and services they buy.

Refrain From Getting Too “Salesy”

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who’s visited an Apple Store and experienced a hard sell.

It’s not uncommon to experience the exact opposite — to show up thinking you need a certain model computer, phone or iPad only to have the sales staff point you in the direction of a less expensive configuration that will serve you just as well.

Mike Myatt put this in very plain terms in a recent Forbes article:

“I hear complaint upon complaint that companies just don’t have money to spend, and that nobody is buying. If you’re experiencing this type of reaction from your customer, it’s not because they don’t have money to spend, it’s because you’re selling and not adding value. It’s because you’re talking and not listening.”

This type of market response is the exact reason why Apple is actually giving their customers a voice, empowering them with knowledge and listening to what they have to say when it comes to product development and company decision-making.

The markets talk, and if your share is dwindling, consider that this might be the very reason why.

The Bottom Line

When you take these factors into consideration, what do they add up to? Customers who consistently rank among the most loyal in the world.

Why?

Because the company that has earned their loyalty has done so by focusing on meeting their needs first, educating them and not taking advantage of them with hardline, up-selling tactics. The end result is a great lesson about why customer experience matters — and customers who will gladly pay a premium to be treated well.

Sneak Peek: New Google AdWords Search Query Report

Posted: 21 May 2015 02:30 AM PDT

google adwords search query report

The Google Adwords Search Query report is one of the most valuable functions available in the AdWords interface. Unfortunately, it isn’t the easiest report to access, as Google decided to bury it under four contextual menus — but it looks like that has changed. It appears that Google is testing a new layout for the Search Query report, and it’s about time.

Google AdWords Search Query Report: Old vs. New

To access the old Google Adwords Search Query report, you had to jump through quite a lot of hoops. The report was hidden under Keywords > Details > Search Terms > All — not exactly the most straightforward process, especially if you’re not intimately familiar with the AdWords interface:

google adwords search query report

However, as WordStream’s Caleb Hutchings noticed (thanks for the tip, Caleb!), the Search Query report seems to have a new layout:

google adwords search query report

Caleb pointed out that Google appears to have removed the hidden search queries from the “Details” tab, and made them separate tabs on the Keywords page. The negative keyword data has also been moved from below the fold on the Keywords tab, and is now accessible from the new tab.

Although the new Google Adwords Search Query report layout seems to have removed the ability to examine search queries for singular keywords, I think the new layout is a major improvement. It’s a lot more intuitive to access, and it just makes more sense.

We haven’t been able to recreate the new layout in all of our accounts, so it seems that the test is being restricted to a limited beta test at present. I imagine that the new layout will be rolled out to all AdWords advertisers before long, though.

Have you seen the new Google Adwords Search Query report layout in the wild? What do you think?
