Ethical media design for kids is a great idea, and it’s having a moment. Two weeks ago, a group of academics, researchers and content developers gathered in Helsinki for a “talkoot,” a Finnish concept where a group works intensively in a concentrated time toward a single goal. In this case, it was to draft a design guide for kids media, rooted in rights and ethics.
There’s a long history of technology outpacing our ability to think through its implications. It’s matched only by the long history of panics over how those new technologies change children’s lives and learning. (And sometimes even “rewire their brains.”)This tension between opportunity and caution has been central to the Children’s Global Media Summit this week in Manchester.
The Genius of Play, a movement to raise awareness about the benefits of play, has posed the question, “how much of kids’ playtime should involve screens?” Watch and see that all the parents in their Play Talk video about screen time get it completely right. How can that be?
@CharlesPPierce Was there in 1981 for the Fleadh Cheoil. Didn't know about it until an Irish friend suggested we attend. Asked how to spell "fleadh cheoil," he spelled it and added, "just the way it sounds."
@bjornjeffery@christianevejlo Very pathetic. As to your original Q, I'm privileged (using that word very intentionally) to be a high-level FF & so to get to board early, whether up front or in back. I like to know I can stow my (one appropriately sized) bag, arrange my stuff, and settle in w/paper/book/phone.
@christianevejlo@bjornjeffery I'm on a Facebook group of American Airlines' highest-level frequent flyers, and those folks are absolutely **obsessed** with their "PDB" (pre-departure beverage). Nothing makes them complain more than not getting one. 🙄
@WhiteHouse@Cabinet Let's see ... which were they? The one who spent $31k on a table? The one who spent $139k on doors? The one who spent $100k on air travel? The one who's never visited an at-risk school? The one whose dementia sets in after 11 am? #Infrastructure#scammers#morons
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
