Hospitals using social media: 90 percent. Those devoting full time staff to it: 15 percent.
 
Great new info on how hospitals are using social media. Check out the new Mindset Digital-Ohio Hospital Association study, A healthy dose of social media. http://ow.ly/iK4HK

Just for +Bethany R, Episode 2 in "Clouds are Weird."

Lenticular clouds

Are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally aligned perpendicular to the wind direction. Where stable moist air flows over a mountain or a range of mountains, a series of large-scale standing waves may form on the downwind side. If the temperature at the crest of the wave drops to the dew point, moisture in the air may condense to form lenticular clouds. Pilots of powered aircraft tend to avoid flying near lenticular clouds, but glider pilots actively seek them out. These clouds have been offered as an explanation for some Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings... ( :

Remember that whole "information wants to be free" nonsense? Paul Mason brings it back, in the close of an speech that hits on Orwell, Facebook, and Machiavelli in 12 pages. Just click already, trust me.

Dear Google Plus:

While I thought this was a neat picture from the +The Muppets, I was rather disappointed that you asked me if I'd like to turn on "Find My Face" when I clicked on it.

That is all,
Rob

I started this article figuring it was your standard paint-by-numbers Kindle v. iPad screed without any consideration of the future of the tech or the economics of a successful product. My apologies to @mattalexand for being completely wrong.
In November I reviewed the Kindle Touch, and I was a fan. Jim linked to my review and simply said: 'I still don’t get the Kindle.' Honestly, as simple as...

Back in May, I wrote about some fascinating research on how seeing a face radically changes where readers look. Tomorrow, I'll be going over this in a training on Pinterest and Google.

It begins. The entire nation of Kiribati isin talks to move to Fiji, because of rising sea levels
The low-lying Pacific nation of Kiribati is negotiating to buy land in Fiji so it can relocate islanders under threat from rising sea levels.

Morning Glory Clouds Over Australia

What causes these long, strange clouds? No one is sure. A rare type of cloud known as a Morning Glory cloud can stretch 1,000 kilometers long and occur at altitudes up to two kilometers high. Although similar roll clouds have been seen at specific places across the world, the ones over Burketown, Queensland Australia occur predictably every spring. Long, horizontal, circulating tubes of air might form when flowing, moist, cooling air encounters an inversion layer, an atmospheric layer where air temperature atypically increases with height. These tubes and surrounding air could cause dangerous turbulence for airplanes when clear. Morning Glory clouds can reportedly achieve an airspeed of 60 kilometers per hour over a surface with little discernible wind. On this picture, photographer Mick Petroff photographed some Morning Glory clouds from his airplane near the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia.

Finally winning the battle against my own personal rhinovirus infestation.

Prompts two thoughts:
1) Incredible how finely evolved that little bit of RNA must be.

2) No. In fact it's not incredible. It's inevitable. The little bugger never would have made it to me if he wasn't quite so talented.

At this point, the rest of us are all coming in (to our new office!) most days but I guarantee +Debra Jasper and +Betsy Hubbard would hear listen to a pitch on that.

This makes the case that:
1) There were two job implosions. First, the firing of a guy whose job was funded by the boom (in factories/housing/government/financial wizardry). Second, everybody else.

2) Folks in group one are in for a rough ride.

3) Folks in group two aren't. Really. Check it. This group has completely rebounded. Congratulations.

4) Finding a place for everybody else involves entire sectors of people switching industries. Not skills. Not willingness to work. Not luck.

5) Hold on to your hats, this ain't going to be pretty.
