Being Creative With Curated Content

first_img“We’re not databasing all of their content,” he says. “We monitor their website for changes, and what we database is the delta. Anyone can go to a law firm’s website and see how many partners are there. The value is in knowing how that’s different from last week. It’s not relevant unless there’s analysis behind it.”ALM’s analysis is in the aggregate. A customizable dashboard sits behind the news feed that allows users to quantify industry trends with sortable lists. The company added a data visualization component in January with charts and graphs.The Human ElementWhile RivalEdge can be fully automated, there’s value in maintaining a human layer. Categorizing a large portion of any industry en masse would be a challenge for a software program, Iredell says, especially in a segment like legal services that has its own non-standardized jargon.“You have one law firm that’s ‘copyright and patent,’ and another whose practice area is ‘intellectual property,’” he says. “They’re really the same thing, but you’re not going to get a hit when you try to do an apples-to-apples comparison or a Google search on those particular keywords.”ALM editorial staff sifted through about 1,000 practice areas, paring them down to 27 before automating the search process from there. That formula is present throughout RivalEdge. There isn’t an editorial slant to ALM’s curation, but the human element is an integral piece. Editors ultimately determine what gets distributed and databased.ALM also provides a crowdsourcing admin tool for subscribers to request coverage of a specific firm or area of practice. Staff will review and add the request within 24 hours. Close to 20 percent of the 750 firms the platform monitors came this way, Iredell says. SIDEBARCuration: Identifying the right usesZiff Davis uses curation in the more traditional editorial sense, finding and linking to stories across the web from its own homepages, but its managed to improve traffic back to its own sites by leading with original, high-value content.Used primarily by the publisher’s tech-focused b-to-b brands, Ziff Davis has used the PublishThis platform to boost return visits to its sites by 105x.Steve Horowitz, COO of Ziff Davis, attributes that growth directly to the increased volume of content his team is able to put up now.The key to quality growth has been in recognizing how to leverage the platform appropriately. News is usually curated at the bottom of the page on a rapid daily cycle, while enterprise articles sit above, refreshed on more of a weekly basis. In-depth whitepapers are above that, with community posts, “popular” items and promotions alongside.While the numbers are up as a whole, that specificity can make comparisons between the sections difficult. There are a variety of expectations associated with each of those types of stories.“The content is a little too different to say we’re seeing interaction with one more than another,” he says. “We’d expect engagement with [news, articles and whitepapers] to be different.” The argument for content curation has always been one of efficiency. It allows you to cover more ground, in less time.Companies are finding opportunities to get creative with the process though as more media bring some form of curation into their mix and it officially becomes part of a new content troika, along with original and user-generated streams. ALM has had success bringing curation to its legal intelligence database. The company acquired the “listening” platform RivalEdge for an undisclosed amount in September as its first purchase under new CEO Bill Carter.Like a traditional curation service, RivalEdge draws information from the open web and distributes it to a base of readers—a subscriber base of law firms who pay about $20,000 per year, in ALM’s case. Unlike most curation services, ALM records and catalogs that information. They aren’t logging everything though, says Kevin Iredell, vice president of research and continuing education products for ALM, just the changes.last_img read more

Quinhagak Residents Hopeful Hair Samples Will Unlock More Mysteries About Ancestors

first_imgKYUK reporters visited the Nunalleq archeological site in August. KYUK’s Shane Iverson and Charles Enoch contributed to this report. The Nunalleq archeological dig near Quinhagak in August, 2014. (Photo by Charles Enoch, KYUK – Bethel)An archaeological dig near Quinhagak, in Southwest Alaska, contributed the largest set of genetic samples for a groundbreaking DNA study of Arctic indigenous people released this summer.Download AudioThe study answers longstanding questions about migrations of the ancient Alaska Native people, on the state’s west coast and the local people hope to learn even more about their own ancestors.The project, called Nunalleq, meaning ‘old village’, is located five miles outside Quinhagak. Dr. Rick Knecht is an ararchaeologist with the University of Aberdeen in Scotland who manages the dig. He says permafrost at the ancient Yup’ik village of Araliq, preserved artifacts up to 700-years-old made of wood and leather that normally would have disintegrated.Knecht says that most sites in the Lower 48 provide just ‘stones and bones’, but at the Araliq site they get, “Things like utensils that people used in their daily lives. We get bentwood bowls and scoops. We get ul’us with the handles still on them. We get grass baskets for example, complete grass baskets and woven mats. We’re getting things like weapons and kayak parts, masks and artwork, things that you normally just see in museums. And these all date from between about 1400 and 1600 AD.”And hundreds of hair samples Knecht says, likely clippings from haircuts were also preserved at the site. Some of those clippings contributed to the study of indigenous Alaskans that was featured in the journal, Science, this summer.“We contributed about 33 hair samples to the study and I think that’s more than any of the sites were able to produce. Just because of the extraordinary preservation here,” Knecht said. Dr. Rick Knecht at the Nunalleq dig site. (Photo courtesy of the University of Aberdeen)There were 169 samples analyzed in the study. The study, led by a group of Danish researchers revealed that the modern Inuit people, including those in Alaska are descended from the Thule, who developed around 700-hundred years ago, replacing an earlier population, the Paleo-Eskimos. The genetic evidence shows there was very little interbreeding, and that the Thule are the ancestors of the Yup’ik and Inupiat people living on Alaska’s west coast today.“We don’t know the origins of that, of what we call the Thule population or the Neo-Eskimos. But we do know that both in the archaeological evidence, both the artifacts and the genetics look very much alike, surprisingly so, on the two ends of the Arctic, which is the largest indigenous territory of any group in the world,” Knecht said.Knecht says the donation of the hair clippings from the Araliq site was the sole contribution for the study from Alaska.Warren Jones is the President of the village corporation in Quinhagak, Qanirtuuq Inc. He says they agreed to work with the archaeologists because they want to learn more about the people who they believe may be their ancestors.“The archaeologists know what they’re doing. And everything they dig out is going to be brought back to us. So it will be back here for our future, children, generations. Now our future kids, grandkids they’ll be able to see what our ancestors lived, how they lived, what they used, the tools they made. All the little stories are coming alive,” said Jones. Warren Jones talking to Quinhagak elder Paul Beebe. (Photo courtesy of Jacqueline Cleveland)Jones says the corporation is interested in comparing the DNA of the ancient people of Araliq with the modern residents of Quinhagak.“We might get to see who was related to the people of Araliq, that’s pretty cool,” said Jones.Jones says the corporation in Quinhagak eventually wants to develop ecotourism around the archaeological site, but rapid erosion at the site has made getting artifacts out a priority.Knecht says it requires a certain level of trust for Native people to allow genetic material to be released for studies, and the over the past five years of the project researchers from the University of Aberdeen and Native people in Quinhagak have built that trust.The project is funded by Qanirtuuq Inc. and through a $1.8 million grant from the UK-based Arts and Humanities Research Council.last_img read more

Baltimore 15 Minimum Wage on HoldFor Now

Council chair Bernard C. ”Jack” Young had just started a roll call vote on the bill when the bill’s sponsor, Mary Pat Clarke (District 14), stood to request that the legislation be sent back to committee.After the council meeting ended, Clarke explained to reporters that she had recently been contacted by the National League of the Blind and Disabled with concerns about the bill. She wanted to ensure the group had sufficient time to work through their issues with city council.But Clarke was also under no illusions about the uncertainty surrounding the bill’s chances for passage given the current city council. “The City Council is still divided,” said Young who unsuccessfully sought a compromise of $11.50 an hour.Clarke and City Council Labor Committee Chair, Robert Curran did not rule out waiting until the new Council session starts in December to re-introduce the legislation.last_img read more

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 5 min read Can you actually have a state “minister of artificial intelligence”? Yes: The United Arab Emirates has actually appointed one.Related: 5 Ways to Make AI Work for Your OrganizationHe is State Minister of AI Omar bin Sultan Al Olama. And, during an interview, he told me he is confident about the future of artificial intelligence in his desert nation and the civic benefits that will emerge from these advancements.Certainly, it’s common knowledge that the UAE is leading developments in artificial intelligence; and other governments are taking notice. Dubai is not only the home of the upcoming World Government Summit but also the nucleus of innovative projects, like the hyperloop located in a “Mars Science City,” and projects involving flying cars, jetpacks and renewable energy.In our interview, Olama spoke about the cutting-edge technologies he believes will launch the country, and possibly the world, into a golden age of technology.Where to beginWhere does a 27-year-old begin, in his effort to pioneer a new government system dedicated entirely to AI? Olama said he’s positive that artificial intelligence will prove an opportunity for the UAE rather than a challenge.”The second mandate,” Olama continued, “is to create the right ecosystem, to ensure that we can create homegrown talent that leads the discussion and development in the field of A.I. while also attracting the best of talent to the UAE from around the world.”Furthermore, my responsibilities include the advancement of adoption of AI technologies and systems in the government in ways that improve the lives of citizens, increase the efficiency of government, create a better and safer environment and give the UAE a competitive edge.”Olama also emphaized global communication about AI: He’s expected to stimulate the global discussion rregarding this technology, while also specifying the indicators governments need to look at so that future potentially catastrophic outcomes are averted.A voice for youth in the U.A.E.’s governmentIn this context, Olama’s ministry has been planning revolutionary projects to create a better life for its citizens — projects that support the development of locally born and bred AI systems. The ministry is working with local government to provide training data for these systems and to encourage other governments to follow in the technological advances the U.A.E. is creating.Related: Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg Are Arguing About AI — But They’re Both Missing the PointThe minister further commented on the actual launch of the AI Ministry, noting its focus on “sectors that . . .in the past might not have been obvious sectors for us regionally or globally. From airlines and airports to shipping ports to aluminum production, the UAE has always been at the forefront of making the most out of advantages,” the minister said.”Another fact is the agility of our government,” he added. “Our leadership has seen an importance in giving youth a voice of their own.Creating the ministry has strengthened this goal, whereby youth can see their own age group reprsented in the UAE cabinet. This “was a pioneering step that many countries and international organizations applaud,” Olama said. “Establishing a position for minister of state for AI came as a direct decision based on the opportunities and challenges that A.I. was forecasted to have on governments around the world.”Olama said he’s excited about the monumental opportunities for other governments and AI. There’s potential for growth, he said, in improved education, preventive health care and safer roads and cities, along with great economic advantages. The U.A.E.’s ministry has a broad opportunity to create groundbreaking opportunities to change the world, and capitalize on global advancement, he said.”The growth and rise of nations in the past was seen through two variables: talent and resources,” Olama said. “The more talent that a country has, the more that it can create; and the more that it can develop, and the more resources that the country has, the more it can deploy and the faster it can develop.”Now, imagine: If the number of talent is bigger in a country compared to another, the advantage of that country over the other is much wider. It is much more probable that Country X can create a talent pool of 30 million people out of its 1.4 billion population, compared to Country Y for example, which has a population of around 40 million.”Now, what if the number of a country’s population did not matter as much because it can leverage digital and artificial talent through AI? What if we had one system that can outsmart a thousand Nobel laureates and can help invent and create? We would no longer need to focus on quantity; we would look to focus on the development of this system. Similar systems can be deployed to continuously improve education and the methods of delivering knowledge to students; it can help develop cures for incurable diseases while also supporting in preventing illness.”The upcoming SummitSo, what can be expected from this year’s Summit in regards to future AI projects? Olama was confident about the summit’s aim to bring together a group of the best thinkers and pioneers, even as actions are already being successfully implemented in the AI field. Collaborating with foreign governments to increase awareness and understanding is another goal, he said.Related: Five Issues UAE Businesses Need To Be Prepared For In 2017″There will also be unique and inspiring showcases of AI and its impact on the lives of citizens and governments through the Museum of the Future Showcase at this year’s World Government Summit,” Olama said.Global personalities expeted to attend, the minister said, include Sebastian Thrun, Mark Ribert, Jaan Tallinn and Nick Bostrom.last_img read more

Intrepid now accepting applications for mystery trip into the unknown

Intrepid now accepting applications for mystery trip into the unknown

first_img Share NEW YORK – Do you have what it takes to travel ‘blind’ on a mystery trip? Ten intrepid travellers will soon find out.Intrepid Travel is calling for applications for a one-off ‘Uncharted Expedition’ that will see 10 travellers take a 2,200-mile trip into the unknown. Featuring towns and villages that can’t be found on Google Maps, the 22-day expedition traverses a route that Intrepid has never travelled before.The only known variables about the trip are the start and end points: Astana, Kazakhstan and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, respectively. Other than that, participants will be going in blind with only small hints of what’s to come.Intrepid Travel co-founder Darrell Wade says this ‘mystery’ trip is unlikely to appeal to anyone but the most courageous travellers.“You won’t know where you’re going, what you’ll see, where you’ll stay or what you’ll be eating. There’ll be long travel days, intermittent electricity and Wi-Fi, a few cold showers and a few treats along the way though, including fermented mare milk,” he said. “But it’s going to be a real adventure. One day you could be hiking through the world’s most remote and breathtaking landscapes, the next soothing your aching muscles in a sauna in the middle of nowhere.”More news:  Venice to ban cruise ships from city centre starting next monthThe expedition, which will depart on June 30, 2019, will coincide with the company’s 30th anniversary.“When we first started out and we wanted to go somewhere new, we’d place a classified ad in the newspaper calling for intrepid people to join us on research trips,” added Wade. “Thirty years later, we go to more than 120 countries and we still get a thrill out of discovering new places with our most curious travellers.”The Uncharted Expedition is part of Intrepid Travel’s Expeditions range, a style of tours that the company still uses to discover new destinations and test new trip ideas. Participants will be asked to provide feedback, which will determine if the tour is added to Intrepid’s 2020 Expeditions offering.The Uncharted Expedition is available from today, at US$5,650 per person, excluding flights. Space is strictly limited to one departure only. For more details or to apply go to https://www.intrepidtravel.com/us/uncharted-expedition.

Kazakh court jails opposition politician

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Observers have described the trial as politically motivated and designed to stifle robust opposition in the authoritarian ex-Soviet nation.Kazakhstan, a vast and energy-rich Central Asian nation positioned between Russia and China into which U.S. and other international businesses have invested billions of dollars, is eager to be embraced as a modernizing state. Still, 72-year old President Nursultan Nazarbayev has shown no desire to loosen his two decade-long grip over the country.The charges relate to clashes in mid-December in the town of Zhanaozen between local people and police that followed a seven-month occupation of the central square by striking oil laborers. At least 14 people died when police opened fire on rioters.Alga’s property is also to be confiscated, effectively leading to the abolition of the authorities’ most robust critic.Speaking in an interview on state television on the eve of the verdict, Nazarbayev described the bloody culmination of the labor dispute in Zhanaozen as the result of “malicious people taking advantage of the situation.”Rights activists say the timing of his remarks underlines a lack of judicial independence in Kazakhstan. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis How men can have a healthy 2019 Comments   Share   MOSCOW (AP) – A court in Kazakhstan has sentenced a vocal opposition leader to 7 1/2 years in prison for allegedly seeking to overthrow the government, ending a trial that has undermined the Central Asian nation’s claims to being an emerging democracy.A judge in the city of Atyrau ruled that unregistered Alga party leader Vladimir Kozlov incited oil workers to violence in a remote western province as part of a plot hatched together with an exiled businessman and government foe, the politician’s wife Aliya Turusbekova said.

Kozlov argues he was performing activism common in any nation that aspires to inoculate itself against social unrest.Observers have noted that the real target of the trial was likely businessman Mukhtar Ablyazov, a self-exiled Nazarbayev foe. Prosecutors described Ablyazov in their indictment against Kozlov as the head of an extremist, criminal conspiracy bent on “seizing power by inciting civil strife and hatred.”Kozlov and Ablyazov have been political allies for more than a decade and consulted regularly over political strategy.Ablyazov is wanted by Kazakhstan authorities on charges of siphoning off billions of dollars from BTA Bank, which is based in the country’s business capital, Almaty.
