What the humble bowerbird can teach us about marketing
Why is Apple like the bowerbird? The bowerbird, an inhabitant of Australia and Papua New Guinea is a great marketing metaphor that every business owner would do well to learn from. In fact, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if even the late, great Steve Jobs himself had been secretly influenced by this fascinating avian character. In essence, this little creature has developed a marketing strategy that is as extraordinary as it is helpful to us here in the human world. It has harnessed the power of getting and keeping the attention of the audience it’s seeking. Of course, unlike its human counterparts, its purpose...

To fight diseases of aging, scientist makes aging itself the target
When Dr. Ming Guo says that she wants to reverse the aging process, she ’s not outlining a fantastical quest for the Fountain of Youth.

Researchers show protein controls process that goes awry in Parkinson ’s disease
As scientists work toward finding a cure for Parkinson ’s disease, one line of research that has emerged focuses on mitochondria, the structures within cells that make energy. The health of those structures is maintained through a quality control system that balances two opposite processes: fission — one mitochondrion splitting in two — and fusion — two becoming one.When there ’s a problem with fission, that system is thrown out of balance. The consequences can include neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, and other serious conditions.For years, scientists have known that one particular prote...

The new rules of marketing automation
I’m a big fan of automation, particularly as I hate having to do the same thing twice. I’ll go out of my way to avoid that scenario, which is why when autoresponders and email marketing came along well over a decade ago I decided that it would be a ‘good thing‘ to use them in my other business. They’ve worked well over the years and continue to serve my clients regular doses of useful information that help them make sense of issues they have. They appreciate it and the business benefits. But here’s the thing. I’ve noticed that as the use of this simplest form of marketing automatio...

Bells and Whistles
I love the strange and weird. And the photo’s from travels in unusual sculpture gardens always get my imagination running. The one here is no exception and I’ve called it Bells and Whistles. If you want to see it in situ it’s in the Devon Sculpture Park which also has an amazing tea room! This week you can let your imagination roam free with a flash, micro, or poem that considers what planet something like this might exist on in real life!. You can see my effort on here: Dregand looked across a barren landscape, grass, trees, and shrubs had sprung up like weeds. One small building remained of all that had...
