Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432612456

It’s Not Even Possible To Visualize Wealth Inequality!

80 people in the world have as much wealth as 3.6 billion of the poorest citizens of planet Earth. It is so out of whack, we can't even visualize in a way that would communicate the disparity.

{POV} 
This obviously presents food for thought, even if every single one of the 80 people got their wealth through hard work and sweat. Only a slight investigation would show that the aforementioned condition is unmet in more than a few cases, be it because of ill-gotten gains due to illegal means or "legal" means of official corruption we practice here in the US. 

It will be impossible to change official and unofficial corruption - be it in Russia or in the UK or in Argentina. All we should ask the super-rich to do, and this is all we should ask of them, is to force each government to level thepla... more »

"Walled World" - the uneven distribution of population and wealth worldwide. 

73% of the world's income is with 14% of the world's population.

The visualization itself is an interesting way to show an insight. I found the two almost hidden features to be quite nice. 

The hard red lines indicate some of the most heavily policed borders on earth. In context of the contrast between the green and the gray, you realize that’s not an accident.

The yellow dots represent the world's top 50 cities with the highest Quality of Life.

In every good infographic, different people will see different things. What do you see here?

The thing about a good example of visualization of data is that it makes you go: Ah ha!  Or hmmmm. Or omg, is that not crazy!

It is hard to get to. This visualization does that pretty well, and it is so profoundly simple. 

You've heard of the phrase "in dog years", but I doubt you really got it. I mean, really got it. this makes it easier.

Now. Go look at the x axis, find your dog/cat's age. Look at the y-axis. Marvel. Give your dog/cat a big hug. (Be careful with the cat, I'm told they don't like hugs. They accept worship though. : ))

I hope they return the letter to the Church, but how clever and sweet of them to spread the truth!! 

I am delighted with the recent speed with which my fellow Americans have made homosexuality an almost non-issue. Let everyone be happy as they are.

Sucking hope out of humanity / the worst from our worst.

I realize at some level that this is our own fault. If we did not click on these awful links, this thing would fall apart. Just look at "From Around The Web" links. So awful. On an article about space exploration! Zero relevance!!

Taboola and its ilk are benefiting from our low intelligence. One can't blame them. I do blame us for clicking on these types of links. It makes me a little sad that we humans can't see through this click-bait crap and we still click on the links.

It is also disappointing that LA Times, and many, many other sites, are willing to make a cent on this and have their brand take a hit for being just another link farm.

It is very hard to stand out in the auto space. All creativity seems to have been sucked out by a gigantic galactic vacuum. 

But, every once in a while, you see something clever. 

This is one of those times. Can you keep up?

Every branding video you've ever seen...

The reason this works so gloriously well, the reason it is so painful and hilarious to watch, is how profoundly it reflects reality. 

It is amazing that most humans still get tricked (and that most CMOs continue to allocate budget to create this!).

You've seen Calvin a lot here. I do adore Bill Watterson's creation so very much. And now my son, who's inherited my vast CnH comics collection, quotes them to me ad verbatim.  

Here's one from yesterday: "I like maxims that don't encourage behavior modification." :)  At his young age, I don't think he completely gets all the nuance, but he did use it in the perfect situation!

The comic strip below is one of my favorites.

Quantifying Random Acts of Kindness

There are lists where America is #1 where we are not too thrilled, and then there are others on which we are and we should proudly reflect. Being #1 on a list of countries where you'll stop and unselfishly help a stranger is one to be truly proud of. 

The fascinating thing is that propensity to be kind to strangers can be hugely affected by local events. Iraq's ranking is thought to be the result of escalating violence and related to the need and desire to assist others who have been affected. 

Regardless... helping strangers is a wonderful thing. More of us should keep raising the bar every day.

I had an amazing opportunity to record an amazing podcast with Maureen Blandford, the host of Continuum Gaps B2B. We covered key challenges in the B2B space, and how to cover come them. But, what was more fun is that the advice applies just as well to B2C or anyone who wants to conquer digital.

Here's a lovely movie, manages to be a love story and yet bring a lot of deep, complex realities of our world to the fore.

There are some brands you just love because of everything they stand for, and you see a part of your own values in their behaviour. For me, +Patagonia is one of those brands. I just love Patagonia.

Here's one of many examples why. Checkout the text under Choose Shipping Method. How many brands do you know that would do that?

How clichéd can we possibly get? 

I love this wonderful visual analysis of what actually happens in TV shows. I'm confident you'll look at this and smile, or even LOL. But, then you'll realize how true this is, and then you might cry a little.

The Bible Belt: America's Most Medicated Region.

This is so weird. These are not the most heavily populated states, yet they use an outsized amount of prescription drugs. And they are all clustered right there (Vermont and Maine being exceptions in top 10). 

Are we (California, NY, CO, NC etc.) just living healthier lifestyles? Why are we not hooked on prescription drugs? What do you think is up?

What would the world look like if we re-sized each country in proportion to its population? Pretty darn crazy!

Canada is reduced to a line. Greenland is gone! You'll never think of Russia the same way again. Madagascar was a surprise. 

Check out the contrast between Australia and Papua province (and Australians are FREAKED OUT about immigrants overrunning their country!).

Hong Kong and Singapore are bigger than Mongolia and New Zealand. China and India you expect. But check out Greater Delhi, bigger than many countries, and  Mexico City!

Some parts are reassuring. South America is pretty much like... South America. 

I hope the map gives each country a bit of context around its place, literally, in the world.

Año Nuevo State Park is just off Santa Cruz, CA, is the site of the largest breeding colonies for northern Elephant Seals. The males are fourteen to sixteen feet long and weigh up to 2.5 tons (!). Their violent battles to establish dominance are pretty legendary. And on sand, they can move at 8 miles per hour (the best we can do is six!). For someone so heavy, it is pretty amazing to see them move.

It is a lovely place to visit. Not just to see the Elephant Seals, but nature in general. Below are some pictures from our trip yesterday. If you are in the area, you should definitely consider visiting.

I worry a lot about this tradeoff. David Cameron is not a loon (ok he has clearly exhibited recently that in this area he is). Other leaders and countries are saying/doing this. And we are simply accepting it. Sad.

First, let's this this out of the way. If you make just $3,650, you are in the 50% wealthiest people in the world! And if you make $77,000 in assets to make the top 10% of the richest people in the world. How cool is that!

It does not take a lot be be in the 1% now, see graph below. Hence all the obsession about the top 0.1% (just 80 people who have as much money as 3.6 billion - nine zeros there - of Earth's inhabitants).

Cost of living as ranked by the Consumer Price Index throws up a lot of surprises, both in the green and the pink!

CPI takes into account the cost of groceries, transportation, restaurants and utilities, each containing a number of variables.

The data below is a relative indicator of a country's living costs as compared to New York. So, for instance, if a country has a CPI of 70, on average it enjoys 30% cheaper living costs compared to New York.

Surprises in Green: Venezuela (that high), France (that low!). Pink: All so surprising, except Philippines and India!

What are you surprised by?

Way, way, way too much wisdom from +Thomas Baekdal in this post! Please read!!

150 years ago, the western world's discrimination of women was largely how it still is in some parts of the world. As in treating women as if they were minors.

In the UK, in the late-1800, for instance, women were only supposed to get married and have kids. If they failed to do that, their job opportunities were basically to become servants or work at nurseries. Even Queen Victoria wrote, in 1870, 'Let women be what God intended, a helpmate for man, but with totally different duties and vocations'.

Of course, it wasn’t just in the UK, all western nations discriminated this way.

So I can only imagine how much of a stir it created when, in 1902, these trading cards (see below) were published with women having real jobs. Like being a journalist, a lawyer, a doctor, having a military career, getting an education, or participating in sports. It was called 'Women of the Future'. (http://goo.gl/MDKLpl)

I wonder if some Christian believers threatened this publisher for going against the will of their religion, as well.

Thankfully, this was 100 years ago. Today, we (well, most of the world anyway) live in more enlightened times. And I personally can't wait until we, in another 100 years, will finally have a world where we are free from the shackles of religious movements and their archaic beliefs. Beliefs that are based on discrimination and intolerance towards people who are somehow not like them.

The good thing is that, from a trend perspective, there is no doubt about where we are heading. We are moving further and further away from these 'dark ages'. 

There are many good things about religion as well. It gives people hope. It provides a moral baseline (for some things, anyway), and it is largely a social movement. Those are all things that we should keep. 

But all major religions are also based on a basis of intolerance and disrespect (only one way of life, commanded by god). And it is this basis that some people use to justify their discrimination and sometimes violent actions.

I don’t mind that people are religious. That’s their right as a citizen of a free world. And if that gives them positivity, I’m all in support of that. But I do mind when the belief of one person is used to discriminate and disrespect another. I also mind when this belief is used to force people into ignorance (in order to keep them subservient). Like, in a few parts of the world, where women are not allowed to get an education, or where that education is based on teachings that we can prove are wrong.

Of course, this isn't just about religion. We have the very same problem within many of the nationalist movements around the world (something that is unfortunately increasing). These nationalist might not be based on religion, but they are based on the same disrespect and intolerance towards anything outside what they define as "the right culture".

They will go on about 'what it means to be [insert your country]'. They will spend a tremendous time defining the national food, the national music, the national sport, and so forth. And they will campaign and sometimes legislate against any culture that doesn't fit their views. 

This is as bad as these religious movements. There is no difference between intolerance based on religion and intolerance based on nationalism. Both are founded on the idea that one group of people think they should have the right to demand the culture and beliefs of another. And that, somehow, their beliefs are superior which gives them the right to discriminate and disrespect anyone outside it.

It doesn't matter if it's disrespect towards women, sex, race, or culture.

Thankfully, all of this seems to be solving itself in the future. It is just taking a long time.___Way, way, way too much wisdom from +Thomas Baekdal in this post! Please read!!

The sad part is this is how local TV news has been in the US for the longest time, and now it seems that has infected all news (Print, Cable TV, Web, everything!). The only way to sell seems to be to keep us in a constant state of OMG, YOU ARE GOING TO DIE!

Temperature scales, and what they really communicate!

I'm biased, I grew up with the metric system and do adore it. I'm glad that except for when I'm in the US and Liberia, I'm set. Beyond that, did you know why each of these scales are different? 

Here's some cool context to impress your kids with (source: http://goo.gl/nj1zR8):

Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate).

Fahrenheit was designed around humans.

Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.

Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.

Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.

So.

Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

It’s Not Even Possible To Visualize Wealth Inequality!

80 people in the world have as much wealth as 3.6 billion of the poorest citizens of planet Earth. It is so out of whack, we can't even visualize in a way that would communicate the disparity.

{POV} 
This obviously presents food for thought, even if every single one of the 80 people got their wealth through hard work and sweat. Only a slight investigation would show that the aforementioned condition is unmet in more than a few cases, be it because of ill-gotten gains due to illegal means or "legal" means of official corruption we practice here in the US.

It will be impossible to change official and unofficial corruption - be it in Russia or in the UK or in Argentina. All we should ask the super-rich to do, and this is all we should ask of them, is to force each government to level the playing field for the poorest of the poor. Use their super-rich influence, to force politicians to create better schools, to put programs in place to give skills training, to create daycare so poor moms who want to go to work to raise their family can, and all other things like this.

The other day on NPR a Republican politician from Dakota made a passionate case for how the poor are "taking advantage of the government generosity". He was talking about eliminating programs put in place to give support to families making less than $16,000 per year. $16k. Per Year! Meanwhile, this joker, in his official political capacity had and has been voting for millions upon millions in tax breaks for already profitable corporations.

That is all I ask. Help stop this garbage, super-rich. You have the power and the influence. Find this guy, spank him, and spank others like him into seeing sanity.

Super-rich, this will be good for you. The more consumers we move into the middle-class, the more consumers you will have for your products and services. Help the poor, only via forcing governments to level the playing field and not by giving the poor money from your bank accounts.

Enjoy! Then, shed at least some tears for all of us flyers!

The very first sources I started paying for was The New York Times. I read the online version, was a fan of the Op-Ed team and the International coverage. Yesterday I cancelled my account.

The straw that broke the camel's back was their cowardice, and fig-leaf explanations, for not publishing the new Charlie Hebdo cover (my pov:  http://goo.gl/PvDOpP).  Margaret Sullivan the Public Editor of NYT agrees with me: http://goo.gl/GS9hlP

The straw that broke the camel's back was their cowardice, and fig-leaf explanations, for not publishing the new Charlie Hebdo cover (my pov:  http://goo.gl/PvDOpP).  Margaret Sullivan the Public Editor of NYT agrees with me: http://goo.gl/GS9hlP

Other cowardly publications made the same call, but I do believe that the NYT has a higher responsibility. "All the News That's Fit to Print", right?

But this was the last straw. 

There was one other thing I was intensely frustrated with NYT for. They would not call torture torture. Years after it was proven it was absolutely torture, they kept using Enhanced Interrogation techniques. For someone with that much influence, that was a shameful abdication of duty. 

The difference, I hope, between us and the terrorists is that we are brave enough to take a critical look at our behavior, be brutal about identifying our mistakes and proceeding to correct them. The NYT (and all it's Enhanced Interrogation ilk) impedes that process.

I was only paying the NYT $20 per month. I don't think they will miss it. But I do feel a little better not supporting them. And, since they are so terrible that they won't let me cancel online, I made sure after a 14 min hold when I did get the lady on the phone that she noted on my cancellation that it was because of the Charlie Hebdo story.___

Beyond the Tech Trends: A CES 2015 Recap!

This is such a great video. In two minutes it covers the three things I'm most excited when it comes to, what I call, Connected Human Marketing. (And you'll see how excited in the video!)

Here are the three things: 

1. The "Internet of Things" is officially a thing
2. Mobile shapes the "Internet of Me"
3. Personalization is paramount

My lovely peers at Google have also posted a more indepth article on these three here: http://goo.gl/CdBDvf

The article itself is great, but perhaps my favourite part is that it ends with the four questions your business should be asking to see if you are ready for 2015/16:

1. Are we there for customers in the moments they need us?

4. Can we reimagine our business to create breakthroughs?

This is literally every goat in the United States!

Ok, so some of them might have been eaten since the census was done. But how amazing is it that we, USDA, managed to count every single goat in the country! When was the last time we counted, literally, every single instance of something?

Now that we are on the subject... from the article: http://goo.gl/PGc4rG .... Nearly 80 percent of America's goats are raised for meat. Sixteen percent are raised for milk, with the remaining 6 percent is comprised of Angora goats raised for mohair.

My favorite goats in the world are the Alpine Ibex. Their mountain climbing capabilities (including sheer vertical walls!) are incredible. See: http://goo.gl/FjBH8Y

Do you have a favorite?

How much interest do you think there is in the next cover of Charlie Hebdo? And is it the duty of any story on the next cover to show what it is, if the cover is already out?

I believe there is a lot of interest. I believe it is the duty to show it.

Yet. The story on the BBC says what's on the cover, but does not show it. They go so far as to not even link to other places in the story where I can see it! http://goo.gl/JTdTC8

Have the killers won by this capitulation by the BBC? 

The BBC is not alone in this strategy. Here's the Daily Mail, http://goo.gl/2cEtzn . Here's the "we are the voice of the nation" New York Times: http://goo.gl/Q5BPsF

Here's the The Age in Australia: http://goo.gl/LA4Awv UK's Telegraph: http://goo.gl/fllEiF The Guardian: http://goo.gl/U8Rwsj

NPR does not show it, but links to it in in paragraph one. http://goo.gl/JgDqOX

Kudos for the Wall Street Journal for being a US site where I could see the cover: http://goo.gl/Tn5Ga4

I feel that we should not be needlessly provocative. (This cover is not.) But there is legitimate interest in so many people of so many religious in so many places around the world to see how this magazine would respond. 

These "great" "well respected" news sources are behaving shamefully. They capitulated by not including it in the story. They simply gave in. 

Even if they decided to capitulate, why not at least, like NPR above at least link to it so that the reader can find it if they want?___

The Complete Digital Analytics Ecosystem: How To Win Big: http://goo.gl/Rwjgbr  [Incomplete picture below! :)]

My new post seeks to decomplexify a world that looks insanely complicated at first glance, the work of digital data. While a lot of hard work and perserverence, and good choices, are required to win, the world itself is simple to understand.

Along with sharing what the core elements of the ecosystem are, I outline the key inputs and the outputs from the ecosystem. But, wait, that's not all! I also share the three phases winners can follow, and in each phase the specific order in which you should execute your strategy.

But,wait, there's more! The post closes with the expectations you should have as to how long it should take your team to execute each of the three phases.

Top 20 airports in the world: Intl Passengers. Dubai's the winner!

Given all else going on in the world, you might not think that Dubai would beat London and take the crown for the biggest. Or that New York (USA! USA! USA!) would rank #17. 

As someone who flies a lot (I crossed a million miles just on United last year), the big surprises for me were Incheon and Istanbul. I did not realize they handled that much traffic. I was surprised LAX is not even in the top 30!

International passengers represent a huge revenue stream, even as transit passengers at the airports. Once they enter the countries they are even bigger spenders. I wish that we, US, figured out a way to balance security and warmth to benefit citizens of other countries and our own economic factors.

Just 55 years ago Ruby Bridges, six years after (!) Brown vs. BOE, became the first black girl to attend a white elementary school in the deep south - escorted by US Federal Marshals. 

There was a massive crowd of white people throwing things and shouting "two, four, six, eight, we don't want to integrate!" 

Not weird white people. Not outliers of society. Normal every day white people. Expressing their superiority over N**** and N****.  That is the scary part. How normal people thought all this was ok and even their right.

People pulled their kids out of school that day (500 kids!). All teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. Barbara Henry was the only person who agreed to teach Ruby. And for over a year taught Ruby alone.

People pulled their kids out of school that day (500 kids!). All teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. Barbara Henry was the only person who agreed to teach Ruby. And for over a year taught Ruby alone.

Ruby was a brave girl. Her mom deserves an astonishing amount of credit for deciding to send Ruby to the school and sticking with it even has her entire family suffered. Big props to all of them, AND the white people who continued to send their kids to the school, who helped the Bridges family.

There is almost no one who would read Ruby's story today and not think it was all so despicable and racist and many other things. There is almost no one who is not filled with outrage at what people believed then and how terribly they acted.

And yet, today so many continue to discriminate. A majority in many states and countries!

Take gay rights. The passion you see expressed in this three min short movie against Ruby, http://goo.gl/ns09Qg, is the same you see so often in protests against gay rights. Or we are against other religious. Or reproductive choices. Or so many other things.

Why don't we see that 50 years from now (or 5 years from now) people watching our religious/sex/origin/skin color/gender protestations will think of us as being just as awful, bigoted, and despicable as those people who protested against Ruby?

I am deeply proud of the progress our country has made. I hope that we will see our bigotry not in a rear-view mirror but right when we express it, right when we trample on the rights of another human. It is harder to see it in the moment. But I pray that we do.

#lifelibertyandthepursuitofhappiness  

PS: Please watch, and show your kids, this brief three min clip: http://goo.gl/ns09Qg And here's a short Wikipedia page on Ruby, absolutely worth a read: http://goo.gl/qk4ozd

Worldwide Ad Spending: Global shift in dollars to digital and mobile?

This is a lovely tool from the folks at eMarketer. You can create your own table to understand where the money is moving from 2014 to 2018 (that last data point might purely be speculative).

At the very minimum it is good for two sets of decisions:

1. How are you as a company evolving if this is where the world is anticipated to go? Time to update your awful mobile existence?

2. Where should you as a Marketer invest in marketing learning skills so you continue to achieve professional success, and what country you might want to work in (11 are included in the data).

Play with it here: http://www.emarketer.com/adspendtool  
Update: The picture below erroneously says 2104 and 2106 instead of 2014 and 2016. My mistake, not eMarketer's.

How politicians are unlike America

Are our representatives, really representative? Not really. They are stunningly less likely to be Black, or Hispanic. Quite unlikely to be female. A bit more likely to be White and gloriously more likely to be Lawyers!

Now here's the amazing bit... The 114th Congress starts as one of the more diverse in American history. They are 80 percent white, 80 percent male and 92 percent Christian. 

So... progress. : )

Two thoughts though.

The cynic in me believes that it does not matter what their makeup is, these guys, and it is mostly guys, are in the pockets of Big Business and Big Personal Money. Does it really matter if they are representative? Second, if we ignore that, I don't think we will ever get to proportional representation, but can White Male Lawyers really legislate what is good for all of us?more »

Do we shop at Whole Foods simply because the produce is so exquisitely displayed? And we pay a premium?

[For this, and other stories in pictures, follow along on my Instagram: http://goo.gl/NoFeHn]

I think there is something to that. Look at it! Everything so perfectly symmetrical and lovely. There was a sprinkling of mist on all the veggies, drawing out the color and freshness. 

For an engineer, me, all this organization definitely had an impact. It looks good, it shows people care deeply about the food, they went into extra trouble, it must be all good (and it was!).

What a great way to get someone to pay a premium. 

It is not a strategy that would work for every product/market/segment. But so few businesses seem to understand this. A missed opportunity.

Trending Articles on Fast Company, do you see a trend?

That's about 50 or so tips to "definitely make your 2015 glorious!" Can anyone absorb that much? Are there that many different things to fix? Is this simply people having too much free time during their vacation?

And I love the quick-fix aspect of it. "17 Small" AND just to make sure you read the article "totally doable" AND just to emphasize how little you have to change they are just "tweaks."  

Humanity rejoice! All you need is tweaks! : )

While not totally surprising, this is still a surprising if you think about how we worked just a few years ago: For most office workers now, life on the job means life online.
Email tops the most important tools for online workers (what, no Snapchat!). I'm surprised the Internet comes in second (would be first for me). 

I'm shocked Landline Phone is #3. I don't even have one in my office, and can't recall talking to anyone on the phone in the last few months for work!

That is probably an indication that this was a good survey, good sampling of people, and that my work life, and likely yours, is an outlier.

I suspect cell and landlines will flip in 2015, or 2016 max.

Raise your hand if you are surprised Social sites rank last. No hands? :)
