The Google ecosystem is made for business, and it is time to create a broader map of how the apps all fit together.

Ex Machina, considered.

Great movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYGzRB4Pnq8 (trailer)
Even with its flaws, last year’s Ex Machina perfectly captured the curious relationship between artificial intelligence, God and ego. A tiny change in its closing moments would have given it an intriguing new dimension.

Cats. And math.

Have a great Caturday :D
 
21 cats matching up with the 'Fibonacci Sequence' proves that cats are mathematically purrrfect

"Math is the universal language of the universe, and cats are the universe's purrrfect creations. 

So, it makes purrrfect sense that they fit into the Fibonacci Sequence's Golden Ratio. For those who don't feel like clicking the link - its math stuff.

Trust us on that :)

It's probably crossed your mind before. ​Should​ you optimize for your competitors' branded keywords? How would you even go about it effectively? Well, in today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand explains some carefully strategic and smart ways to optimize for the keywords of a competitor, from determining their worthiness to properly targeting your funnel to using third-party hosted content for maximum amplification.

I've been in and out of VR all weekend, and writing articles on the psychology of these new spaces (about 5 so far).
And today is a Valentines. So here is lovely tune for you.

Also, I  just watched the season episode of Season 1 of Californication - one of the best shows I've seen for character development quickly, and I also remembered this tune: http://martinsherv.com/i8

Here is to a great week ahead. Lots to play for.

"Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.” Read on... 
 
Be My Valentine

“We are capable of loving more than one person at a time,” says Biological anthropologist, Helen Fisher, in a TED talk that raises some questions and answers just as many: https://goo.gl/SGIhN5. Love is something even the least introspective of us have grappled with at some point or another: https://goo.gl/F2vl08. The reason is that we can feel the drive that comes from it while acknowledging the possibility that it may lead us down a path where we could experience a sense of loss and pain, things we are hardwired by nature to avoid.

The sense of helplessness we feel when it comes to love has frequently become the key through which we uncover deeper perspectives: http://goo.gl/2xsBQB. Beyond the fact that countless songs, books, plays and ballads have been written about it, it has also led to a few Jimmy Kimmel moments: http://goo.gl/9mZfvF.

In 2014 “love” was the most common search on Google: https://goo.gl/9UZTEv leading The Guardian to ask five experts to explore different aspects of it: http://goo.gl/sHQnQB.

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.” Says Maria Popova in her popular BRainpickings blog: https://goo.gl/fWuuVk about it. The ancient Greeks who have given us many definitions and more than just a few of the words we use in English to describe things that are deep, when it come to love appeared to have given up, thrown their hands up in the air and chickened out, giving us not one, not two, not three but seven different types of love: http://goo.gl/nZReyn which means that either they could see things deeper and clearer than us (which is possible) or that they took an analyst’s classification tendency a little too far, over-compartmentalizing and giving us perhaps a way out of the many impasses such a strong, complex emotion often places us in.

The five best love songs of all time: https://goo.gl/kvqx7l shows that when it comes to love, we look, in our tunes, for a blend of happiness and sadness, bliss and violence.

When it comes to books most lists unequivocally place Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (https://goo.gl/wF2SEL) at the very top.

Trying to understand how (and why) we fall in love, inevitably, leads down a journey of exploration of the brain inside our heads: http://goo.gl/WNDCfp. Love, it would appear, despite what poets may have said, resides mostly in the brain: https://goo.gl/i3IDmj where it apparently also mutates: http://goo.gl/MHPDDv.

Love, suggest, some will happen to everyone at some point regardless: https://goo.gl/Ts6HKx though that does not mean it will be reciprocated. While culture often dictates how love can be expressed: http://goo.gl/t9cGUd and how it can even be perceived: http://goo.gl/ihOUbe when it comes to how our brains react, it would appear, we are all the same: http://goo.gl/fOoT.

A sameness that does not appear to change much when we compare traditional ways of finding love: http://goo.gl/rDhFnX with the modern age love for apps that kinda help us out in the task (and sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun): https://goo.gl/fwa7np.

There is a small suggestion that today we are having a harder time finding love (http://goo.gl/8bQYhh) than, say, Jane Austen’s days (http://goo.gl/PgNZui) – or maybe not (http://goo.gl/DIvtCN) which is why her work has been so enduring: https://goo.gl/mylmIb.

The real question of course, for us, has to be: “Can we find love online?” – No! says Marie Claire to its readers: http://goo.gl/y0nKl2 - you shouldn’t even try. Yes! Advise the founders of PKCupid (perhaps predictably) but you have to be real - https://goo.gl/7G7Doq.

As a person who’s seen hundreds of relationships develop and flourish from an online connection, and a sizable percentage end up in marriage I know that we are at our most likeliest to find love when we are ourselves in a social media environment that doesn’t have us looking, necessarily, for love.

Social media has inevitably had its effect here (http://goo.gl/YkbFUv) just like it has had its effect on everything else that has to do with human connection and human emotions.

What is however perhaps the most uplifting of all about all this is that irrespective of who we are, what we believe in, how we were raised or what we want to do, love functions inside us the same way. We are all prone to it and capable of being just as ‘crazy’ or ‘stupid’ from it as when 10th century Arab philosopher and poet Omar Khayyam (https://goo.gl/1j9lYZ) said:

It’s too bad if a heart lacks fire,
and is deprived of the light
of a heart ablaze.
The day on which you are
without passionate love
is the most wasted day of your life.

We love, perhaps, because through it we feel totally alive.

So, today of all days, cookies, chocolate donuts, croissants and chocolate cake are in order but they must be heart shaped and don’t forget, without coffee we are only halfway there. Have an awesome Sunday, wherever you are.

Estou de acordo que há diferentes tipos de amor ! .......o de Deus ...... o dos pais .....o dos filhos ..... o do companheiro ......o de um amigo verdadeiro ....... o da natureza ..... etc.....etc...... MAS ......se acontecer que , sendo felizes no casamento , tendo a felicidade de encontrar a nossa alma gémea , e se por acaso surgisse uma atração por outra suposta alma gémea de alguém dentro das nossas relações , seria OBRIGATÓRIO DE BOM SENSO afastarmo-nos enquanto é tempo ! ...... e porque não dizer ao nosso companheiro (a) que não queremos mais conviver com determinada pessoa , ou dizer o porquê verdadeiro ou dizer que não gosta de tal companhia ! ..... pois o coração dividido para dois amores iguais ia dar problemas graves ! .....Não acredito muito que possam aparecer duas ALMAS GÉMEAS SIMULTÂNEAMENTE ....já uma é difícil de encontrar , muito menos duas ! .......

Understanding What We Need to Do

The moment we understand something it gives us a natural competitive edge. We are suddenly in a position to use our better understanding to benefit. Semantic search is no different. My post on Machine Learning: https://goo.gl/pdWXRN laid out some of the basics behind the cutting-edge developments associated with semantic search.

Classification (http://goo.gl/NrWsj5) and Validation (http://goo.gl/LhkXuF) are the two areas where the machine learning breakthroughs are being applied.

So, how do we benefit? How does the average webmaster with a site to promote and a business to run benefit from it? Well for a start you need to make sure that the information you pump out helps with Classification making use hashtags, Ontology structure and thematic linking. Concepts that are explained simply and practically in SEO Help (http://goo.gl/VIdKTe).

Then you need to make sure that the amount of information you pump out and the breadcrumb trails created by our digital footprints remain consistent and granular. Again, a concept covered in SEO Help.

The activities that need to be taken in order to benefit from semantic search are straightforward, logical and should be part of your overall integrated digital marketign strategy.

Google is apparently working on a virtual reality headset that, unlike its Cardboard platform, will have no need for a smartphone -- or a high-powered PC or gaming console, for that matter.
