Estados Unidos: exhiben la colección más grande de joyas del Titanic


Con motivo del centenario del aniversario de su hundimiento, se realizá una exposición de anillos de diamantes y zafiros, entre otras, que recorrerá tres ciudades

La colección más grande de joyas. Así presentan la exhibición, por primera a vez abierta al público, de las alhajas recuperas del Titanic. En el aniversario por su centenario , las piezas empezaron su recorrido por la ciudad estadounidense de Atlanta, para luego continuar su recorrido por Orlando, Florida, y Las Vegas.

Anillos de diamantes y zafiros, broches, collares, mancuernillas y un reloj de bolsillo hecho de oro son algunas de las perlas que se podrán observar en la muestra. Las piezas fueron recuperadas de un solo bolso de mano hallado durante una misión de exploración y recuperación en 1987.

“El propósito de la exhibición es ilustrar al público sobre la maravilla de la exploración, dijo Alexandra Klingelhofer, vicepresidenta de colecciones para RMS Titanic Inc. Y agregó: “Podemos darles un vistazo de cómo debe haber sido al abrir esto por primera vez y ver, juntos, la bella joyería del periodo eduardiano”.

Los conservadores y curadores han estado estudiando y preservando estas piezas de joyería para tener un mayor conocimiento de la vida individual de los pasajeros.

Social media etiquette for journalists: how the rules have changed


image:

Ever since Facebook and Twitter emerged as key tools for news, journalists and newsrooms have performed a high-wire act: They need to use social media to engage their audience in new and inventive ways, while also maintaining ethical standards.

Achieving that balance has been rocky for many reporters, and several have faced serious consequences for speaking their minds in 140 characters or less.

But some practices that were frowned upon in the early days of social media engagement are no longer verboten, according to top social media editors who participated on the panel “Social Media Debate: Best Practices vs. Bad Habits” at the Online News Association’s 2012 conference in San Francisco. Associated Press social media editor Eric Carvin was the moderator.

Here are the social media points of etiquette that have changed the most in recent years:

The decline of “the view from nowhere”

The notion that journalists should only spit out facts and headlines has been replaced by the idea that it’s acceptable to have a point of view and show some personality.

“If you asked me two years ago, I would [have] said, ‘No, a journalist should not have an opinion on Twitter,’ ” said Niketa Patel, social media product manager for CNN Money. But now her thinking has changed. “We are humans, too. We do have opinions. I think as long as you’re not controversial about it, or you’re not overly trying to make a statement, then I think it’s OK…to have somewhat of an opinion,” she said.

For Liz Heron, social media director at The Wall Street Journal, journalists are at their best on social media when they offer analysis and context instead of just the straight story.

La app NMHMC Harvey fue desarrollada por el Museo Nacional de la Salud y la Medicina de Chicago, EEUU, y permite ver de cerca la neuroanatomía del físico mediante imágenes tomadas durante su autopsia

El cerebro de Einstein, en una aplicación para iPad

Cuando Albert Einstein murió, en 1955, el patólogo Thomas Harvey realizó una autopsia a su cuerpo y removió el cerebro del físico nacido en Alemania para analizarlo en detalle con la esperanza de que le pudiera revelar los secretos detrás de su inteligencia.

Durante el procedimiento, Harvey tomó imágenes del cerebro de Einstein y las plasmó en diversas láminas que hoy están disponibles para los usuarios de iPad por un costo de u$s9.99.

El Museo Nacional de la Salud y la Medicina de Chicago, en los Estados Unidos, es el responsable de desarrollar la aplicación que ya se puede descargar en iTunes. “Creo que Einstein habría estado entusiasmado”, dijo Steve Landers, un consultor del museo, a la agencia AP.

Desarrollan guante que permitirá a personas sordo-ciegas manejar smartphones

El sistema toma como base el alfabeto Lorm o Lormen, un lenguaje que se utiliza en Alemania y otros países europeos y en Estados Unidos que se basa que los interlocutores se tocan las palmas de las manos para presionar puntos concretos que van definiendo las distintas letras del alfabeto. Tomando como base este sistema de comunicación, el Mobile Lorm Glove utiliza un guante en el que se han desplegado una serie de sensores y actuadores que sirven para “traducir” textos a pulsaciones sobre la palma de la mano del usuario y viceversa puesto que el usuario también podrá presionar sobre los sensores y realizar un dictado de texto.

Todo este flujo de caracteres se enviaría a un dispositivo móvil mediante una conexión Bluetooth y, por ejemplo, en el caso de recibir un mensaje SMS en el terminal, el sistema se lo traduciría al usuario usando el lenguaje Lorm a través de este guante.

Un proyecto muy interesante que, además, permite de abrir el acceso a la tecnología a mucha más gente.

Entendemos por accesibilidad el grado en el que cualquier persona puede usar un sistema o acceder a un servicio independientemente de sus capacidades técnicas, cognitivas o físicas y para poder extender el uso de los dispositivos tecnológicos a todo el mundo es necesario desarrollar sistemas adaptados a personas que padecen algún tipo de discapacidad. Democratizar el acceso a la tecnología es algo en lo que los fabricantes e investigadores tienen mucho que aportar y, por ejemplo, el eyeCan de Samsung del que hablamos hace unas semanas cumplía esta función. En Alemania, un equipo de investigación de la Universidad de Arte de Berlín ha puesto el foco en desarrollar un sistema que permita a las personas sordo-ciegas manejar su smartphone y poder escribir en él para lo cual han desarrolladoun sistema táctil que tiene como elemento principal un guante.

Mobile Lorm Glove, que es como se llama este sistema, es un proyecto desarrollado en el Laboratorio de Investigación en Diseño por Tom Bieling, Ulrike Gollner y Gesche Joost con el que esperan que las personas sordo-ciegas puedan leer y escribir en tabletas y smartphonesy, con el tiempo, poder acceder al contenido de libros electrónicos.

Information is free. Knowledge is not.

Knowledge is something else entirely. It’s what you get when you combine information with analysis and experience. Knowledge is information distilled down to actions. It can and should cost you money, or time, or something else. If you want real analysis of the news you just grabbed from the Associated Press, for example, you might go to the New York Times and pay (at least after 10 views). To learn AdWords tricks that can actually help you profit, you’ll buy a book, pay for a seminar or hire a consultant.
You must pay for knowledge in money or effort. If you don’t understand this, you’re going to fail.

In business, everyone keeps confusing information with knowledge. It’s a fatal mistake: Information may get you started, but knowledge is what separates winners from losers.

Information is ones and zeros. It’s raw data, or a list of facts. It’s instructions on filling out a business license, or the instructions Google provides when you sign up for Adwords. The obvious stuff. You can often acquire information for free: Go to the Associated Press for raw, un-analyzed news. Or read a ‘how to’ on building your own car. Leer más “Information is free.

Here Are The Early Contenders For Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi’s Job


Kim Bhasinhttp://www.businessinsider.com

PepsiCo continued its management shakeup today in a move that is likely paving the way for a successor to embattled CEO Indra Nooyireports the AP.indra nooyiThe company has been stagnant over the past five years, and lately it has been trying to mix things up internally to get it jump-started. For instance, it completely revamped its marketing wing last year, bringing in big-name hires like Brad Jakeman, former CMO of Blizzard Activision.

And all throughout, Nooyi has been getting slammed by both the media and Pepsi investors alike.

This latest move shows that Pepsi is “deepen[ing] its management bench,” says Martinne Geller at Reuters. One of these executives is likely being groomed to be Nooyi’s successor after she steps down or is forced out.

Here are the four most likely internal candidates for the CEO job, according to Geller’s report>>> Leer más “Here Are The Early Contenders For Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi’s Job”

FDA Approves New Suppliers to Ease Cancer Drug Shortages

“We have made real progress … We believe that (suppliers) will be able to meet the demands of patients in the U.S. market” for the two drugs indefinitely, FDA Dr. Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview. “It’s a huge relief for us.”

The FDA increasingly has been able to prevent drug shortages, mainly due to a sixfold increase in manufacturers voluntarily notifying the FDA when they anticipate shortages, Hamburg said.

Thanks to such notice, the agency prevented 195 drug shortages in 2011, mostly late in the year after President Obama issued an executive order giving FDA additional powers to address the shortages. Between that order on Oct. 31 and this week, the agency has prevented a total of 114 drug shortages.

Hamburg said that when FDA’s much-expanded drug shortages team is notified about impending shortages and contacts other manufacturers, those companies have been “very responsive” as FDA worked with them on finding ways to boost production.

In the latest case, the FDA said it has temporarily allowed importation of an alternative to Doxil called Lipodox, made by Sun Pharma Global FZE. The Indian drugmaker is already known to the agency, and its factory and the production line for Lipodox have been inspected.

The FDA approved another supplier for a preservative-free version of methotrexate, a crucial drug for children with a type of leukemia called ALL and for high-dose treatment of bone cancer.

Federal regulators said Tuesday that they’ve approved new suppliers for two crucial cancer drugs, easing critical shortages — at least for the time being — that have left patients and parents frightened about missing life-saving treatments.

The news brings a light at the end of the tunnel for some patients, but not for thousands of others, given that there are currently 283 separate drugs in short supply or totally unavailable in this country.

On Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration said it will temporarily allow importation of a replacement drug for Doxil, a drug for ovarian and other cancers that hasn’t been available for new patients for months.

The agency also has approved another supplier for a preservative-free version of methotrexate, a crucial drug for children with a type of leukemia called ALL and for high-dose treatment of bone cancer. The version with preservatives can be toxic or cause paralysis in children and other patients getting the drug either via injections into spinal cord fluid or at very high doses.

The FDA also has approved the release of a batch manufactured by Ben Venue Laboratories Inc., shortly before it closed several factories at its complex in Bedford, Ohio, due to serious quality problems. That closing is what turned the on-again, off-again methotrexate shortage that began in late 2008 into a crisis almost overnight, with fears that patients would begin missing treatments as soon as the end of this month.

Why The New York Times eliminated its social media editor position

Helping journalists effectively use social media

When Preston became social media editor a year and a half ago, she was criticized for not having a background in it. It helped, she said, to have a small group of Times journalists who were already well-versed in Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites.

While some journalists at the Times were already using those sites, there wasn’t a newsroom-wide understanding of why the tools mattered. “At the beginning there was some resistance among my colleagues about using these tools,” Preston said. “What did I hear at the very beginning? ‘Twitter is all about what people are having for lunch.’ Now, no one says that anymore.”

As social media editor, Preston met regularly with section editors and reporters to demonstrate how they could use social media tools not just to promote content but to build communities and attract new audiences. Now, Times staffers regularly use social media to publish real-time news and updates for breaking stories and live events. Some departments, she said, have started using Facebook to help seed communities around areas of content.

Preston pointed to two projects that were especially critical in helping the Times realize social media’s potential. In her memo to Abramson, she said the Times’ Moment in Time interactive showed those in the newsroom how social media can be used as a powerful crowdsourcing tool. And the Fort Hood shootings showed the Times the value in using Twitter to get information from people at the scene of a breaking news story.

Earlier this week, New York Times Social Media Editor Jennifer Preston tweeted that she would be returning to reporting full-time. The news made me wonder: What would this mean for social media at the Times?

Preston told me by phone that the Times plans to eliminate her position in early 2011 and shift social media responsibilities to Aron Pilhofer‘s interactive news team. When her current job ends, Preston will begin covering social media as a Times reporter.

The move is part of the Times’ efforts to more fully integrate its print and digital operations. It’s also an acknowledgment that social media needs to be — and is already — a shared responsibility.

“Social media can’t belong to one person; it needs to be part of everyone’s job,” Preston said. “It has to be integrated into the existing editorial process and production process. I’m convinced that’s the only way we’re going to crack the engagement nut.”

Preston expressed these sentiments in a memo to News Managing Editor Jill Abramson last August and made the case that the job of a social media evangelist was no longer needed. She said she believed that Times’ reporters and editors really understood the value of social media for reporting, delivering real-time news updates and engaging with users.

Associated Press recognise bloggers as a news source

In a letter to its members last week, Associated Press made the announcement that bloggers should be cited as a news source. This is a significant move from the AP, given that they have a history of not exactly ‘getting on’ with bloggers. Given that such a large news organisation has made a point of recognising bloggers as a viable news source, which they should have done a long time ago, it has much wider implications on how bloggers affect the news agenda and overall news industry. We’ve already seen some developments in this area, such as publishers employing bloggers on the ground, but I think this goes one further than that.

The announcement has served to recognise the work that bloggers put into breaking and reporting stories. But interestingly they make a point of saying that they must credit information where it occured from a website, so you would hope that this would cover Twitter as well, given that so many stories break on here. The details aren’t clear on quite what this attribution would look like (is it the website or the individual that’s credited?) but this is definitely a positive and exciting move.

3137862 9f18e67024 Associated Press recognise bloggers as a news sourceImportantly this has implications for the individual blogger opposed to blogs overall. Even though the AP states that attribution to a blogger or other source doesn’t have to occur at the start of a story, it still means valuable visibility for bloggers in front of a wide audience. If you’re a blogger that breaks news then this has huge implications on how high up the news chain you could get. Instead of just having to go out and find stories yourself, if you get in front of the right people, it could  mean that bloggers are approached with the right information and maybe even given exclusives ahead of traditional publications. This may be looking a bit too far into the future, but the possibility for this can certainly be seen now.

Are AP slow off the mark?

I don’t want to risk downplaying the significance of the move from AP, but you could very well argue that they’re actually a bit late to the game with their most recent change. In ‘The Source Cycle‘, an analysis of articles from the New York Times & Washington Post over 6 years finds that blogs are increasingly referenced as a credible news source. And this was carried out in 2008. It’s when you look at it in this context that you realise just how much work is still to be done when it comes to recognising bloggers and importantly growing the area overall. AP is a huge news agency yet only now are they making this change.

As exciting as this announcement is, we must question who is looking after the blogger’s rights and how can they make a living from their blog? It’s one thing to attribute them as a news source, but you would hope that this change from AP may well affect the blogosphere overall and we may start to see more bloggers employed by news organisations who recognise the collective power of bloggers in regional areas. This is where bloggers’ ability to influence and set the news agenda really starts coming in to play and can change the traditional news industry.

Relevence, relationships and the ridiculous dominate opening day of We Media ‘10

and Suzanne McBride

Almost nothing may have been invented yet, We Media founders Dale Peskin and Andrew Nachison like to say.

But that doesn’t mean that a lot of people aren’t trying.

On Wednesday, the first full day of the 2010 We Media Conference at the University of Miami, “Game Changers” like Byron Reece, chief innovation officer of Demand Media, were celebrated and challenged to help define the approach of the Digital Renaissance.

“The Internet is becoming increasingly self corrective with the ability to determine between right and wrong, what’s good and bad,” said Reece. “Nobody saw the Internet coming. When new technologies come out, the only frame of reference people have are the technologies they are replacing.

“People are willing to help people on the Internet and get nothing in return.”

The anonymous — and not so anonymous — community of the Internet was a feature of the first of the two-day conference, which included a discussion on the changing face of news with Tom Curley, CEO of the Associated Press, and Alberto Ibarguen, CEO of the Knight Foundation, moderated by John Hockenberry, host of “The Takeaway.”

A pair of morning sessions, however, provided a sharp contrast between Newser founder Michael Wolff and Tom Stites, founder of the Banyan Project, which emphasizes relational journalism to strengthen democracy.

“Journalism needs to serve a huge, ill-served public and encourage deeper civic engagement,” said Stites. “This journalism would be more relevant to the public it serves to make sounder life decisions.

“We need to stretch boundaries and enlarge the discourse. The future of journalism discourse is what is important. What are the problems that democracy demands we pursue?”

Wolff’s approach is not as grand, however.

“Journalism is not a public service, not a public good. Journalism is not social work,” said Wolff, emphasizing the community theme. “When it’s healthiest, it’s about having a relationship with your readers. You’re trying to find what people want. That sends you in directions that are both profane and ridiculous. Leer más “Relevence, relationships and the ridiculous dominate opening day of We Media ‘10”
