Social Media Guru #socialmedia
The problem with the term “social media guru” is that it has become meaningless. What does it mean, exactly? That you know how to tweet? That you have a high Klout score? That you know what hashtags are and you know which Instagram filters work best?
Once in a while, I get introduced by people as a “social media guru.” I know they mean well when they do that; perhaps they even intend to compliment me when they say it. But that title—”soci…

Colour Emotion Guide #socialmedia
The psychology of colour as it relates to persuasion is one of the most interesting, and most controversial, aspects of marketing. The reason is that most of today’s conversations on colours and persuasion consist of hunches, anecdotal evidence and advertisers blowing smoke about colours and the mind.

Nuclear Watchdog To Re-Check Olkiluoto #energy
The Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) is demanding that energy utility TVO carry out new tests of the durability of the pressure vessel planned for the Olkiluoto 3 nuclear reactor. This follows a recent discovery by French officials of inconsistencies in the mechanical toughness of a vessel made for a similar reactor, also being built by the French company Areva.
STUK does not expect the extra checks to slow down construction of the long-delayed Olkiluoto 3 unit.

Britain's Low Paid Workers #economy
Despite 74.4% of the British in work, wages are depressed because of one million young new workers, 4.78 million non-UK born working people, 75,000 over-65 workers and tougher government benefit rules.
Weaker unions and lower inflation have coincided with a structural change that has resulted in an increased supply of labour

With this growing reserve army of labour, employers have been under no immediate pressure to offer higher pay even when the economy has been growing.

Beyond failure to target, some companies are too "salesy" too fast, fail to track what works in their campaigns and have poor ads or landing pages.

Alstom's Third New Bribery Charge #bribery
A new bribery charge adds to a sprawling case against several UK subsidiaries of the French conglomerate’s transport and power divisions for allegedly paying bribes around the world to secure government contracts. Alstom is facing a third criminal trial in the UK after British fraud prosecutors charged one of its subsidiaries with further bribery offences, this time involving contracts in Hungary.

French Nuclear Fault Frightens Investors #energy
A second investigation has been ordered into the quality of the steel used to make a 50ft-high safety casing, or “pressure vessel”, which encloses the new reactor at Flamanville, near Cherbourg. If the steel proves to be defective, the completion of the prototype EPR plant – already behind schedule and nearly three times over budget – could be delayed for several years. The fault could undermine the already fragile finances of the French state-owned nuclear construction company Areva. It could also scare off the Chinese state investors who are supposed to cover part of the cost of the Hinkley project.
A “very serious” fault has been discovered in a French nuclear power station which is at the heart of David Cameron’s strategy to “keep the lights on” in Britain in the next decade.

the   Irish sea,  is full of  nuclear  waste, washes over to   Ireland, due to  spills from  Sellafield  'cumbria.     When the  Russian plant , blew up,  the lake district  got  all of the fallout no one could eat the sheep, drink the milk, play on the grass, we were only  told this around a month after  the disaster. That  meant for the  first few weeks, no one was told.     When i worked in  LOndon,,  a scientist  told me,,,, they had been  given   iodine tablets to take,,,,,, what did the people of  Cumbria  get  nothing, they had not been told.   Cumbria is the place that needs the work,, so  people  put up with  it as an every day risk,   not only that   is   the  Nuclear  PLant,, lies on a fault line,,, and an  Earthquake  happened a  around  fifteen years  ago,,,,  beware, for  if Sellafield  goes so do most of   Europe

GE Liquidates USA's 7th Largest Bank #energy
GE's CEO may find it easier than expected to liquidate in 36 months America’s seventh-largest bank, with $500 billion of assets. What may prove harder is convincing the world that the rest of GE—which runs from lamps to locomotives via medical scanners, oil-drilling equipment, nuclear reactors, jet engines, water-treatment plants and all manner of other electrical and mechanical gear—still deserves to exist.
But no more adventures in finance SPEAKING just a month ago, one of the men who lost the struggle to become boss of General Electric (GE) in 2001 grumbled that the...

GE Capital relies on wholesale borrowing markets to finance itself. It had a third of a trillion dollars of debt at the latest count. Shareholders despair of its 8% return on equity.
