As brands are increasingly measured by the #CX  of their consumers, their reliance on BPO and IT Services firms for security raises some interesting challenges as they look to (re)create #digital   #trust  both within their internal partners and throughout the market.

Something to think about, from +Bhupesh Shah...
 
"Although many men with #depression and #suicidal thoughts want help, pressure to conform to traditional masculine ideals can make reaching out difficult. Web-based tools such as the Men's Depression Help Yourself website (http://www.mensdepressionhelpyourself.ubc.ca/) play a role in destigmatizing men's experiences with depression and provide an anonymous way for men to get help." http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/48856.html #NotAlone #usguys")
Men's Depression. Depression can affect men at any time in their life. Though depression is diagnosed less often in men compared to women, suicide is completed by many more men than women. Reasons for this can include men's reluctance to talk about or seek professional help for their depression.

Fighting #suicide: A global, local crisis that takes a life every 40 sec. It requires us to change the way we listen, continually broaden our understanding, and adapt our own behavior to help others. 

#notalone #usguys
Depression is a global crisis, and every 40 seconds a life is lost to suicide. This post is part of a month-long series on suicide, written by friends of Sam

The 'Pillars of Creation' or the 'Pillars of Destruction' (or perhaps the 'Three Fingers of God')?

An amazing update to an already iconic photo from the Eagle Nebula (M16).

NASA has come out with a new image that could become one of its most iconic ever.

Has 15min of Fame been replaced with 15sec of attention?
 
Have you found that the decreasing consumer attention span calls for marketing with “snackable content"?

Introduction
Fred is currently developing 2020F, a global community to help identify, track and find ways to minimize risk/maximize opportunity of disruptive events that shape our global community.

His experience includes analyzing businesses, markets and products, figuring out what makes them work, or fail, and developing creative solutions to encourage them to work better.
