Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin There is no shortage of cheap Bluetooth speakers from manufacturers that you’d never see on store shelves in North America, but far fewer that make a play for the high end wireless speaker market. It’s difficult to get consumers to part with big money on a speaker that doesn’t carry a familiar name. China’s Trettitre is giving it a go with the $699.99 TreSound1, a sample of which was sent to me by distributor Linsoul Audio . Premium – But Polarizing – Design The TreSound1 has a very unusual appearance, one that draws immediate attention. Trettitre says it incorporates a “mountain” design. To me it looks like a warhead. It’s not just the form factor that makes the design polarizing; the controls take minimalism to an extreme. There are no buttons to mar its surface. On/off and volume control is accomplished by twisting the metal end of the cone, with no option for pausing or skipping tracks. The very tip is an LED that … [Read more...] about Review: Trettitre TreSound1 Wireless Speaker

Student Engagement Matters More Than Attendance; Why Don’t Schools Track It?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The importance of engagement in both workplace and educational success has been well illustrated over the last 20 years by the analytics company Gallup. Even though tracking engagement throughout the day can be quickly done in the traditional classroom, schools remain focused on attendance. But why should they when mental presence, more than physical presence, is the necessary precondition for learning? There is data supporting the importance of engagement engagement. In a meta-analysis of decades of corporate engagement data, Gallup found that high engagement consistently leads to more positive outcomes, such as higher productivity, lower absenteeism, higher quality work, and higher job satisfaction. Likewise, with in grades 5 to 12, Gallup found engaged students are 2.5 times more likely to say they do well in school and are 4.5 times more hopeful about their futures than their disengaged peers. Engagement correlates … [Read more...] about Student Engagement Matters More Than Attendance; Why Don’t Schools Track It?

Amazon, Other Retailers Revisit Free Shipping Amid Rising Costs
(CTN News) – Amazon and other online retailers are scrambling to make free shipping work. In addition to charging for faster service, they’re raising minimum purchase requirements and shifting more costs to consumers who are struggling. Free delivery is going away, says Ken Morris, managing partner at Cambridge Retail Advisors. According to Morris, many retailers are starting to charge for better seating, luggage transportation, and frequent flyer points. Free shipping raises retailer prices. Despite this, product inflation and soaring shipping costs make the service unsustainable. The company underwrote its package delivery costs with pricey prime subscriptions and fat profits from other businesses. Amazon made other retailers follow, even though they didn’t have Amazon’s advantages. Retail margins are shrinking and shipping rates are skyrocketing for United Parcel Service, FedEx, and the US Postal Service, so e-commerce companies that offer free shipping are … [Read more...] about Amazon, Other Retailers Revisit Free Shipping Amid Rising Costs

And how much these two guys purportedly despise each other. Benavidez vs. Plant is one of the most anticipated fights of the year, and partially, it’s because there seems to be true hatred between the two. Here’s everything you need to know about David Benavidez vs. Caleb Plant, including the odds, their records and a prediction on who will win. Benavidez is one of the best super middleweights around.

ChatGPT: Is SEO – As We Know It – Dead?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin ChatGPT has taken the world by storm. Many have asked if it is the new way to do a search. This question is intriguing given the potentially massive impact on the search engine business space and the competitive elements therein. However, that is not the question I ask - in this article - I explore a related question - if you have a business that has relied on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for traffic and relevance, where does the ChatGPT leave you? Chat vs Search There is a fundamental user intent difference between chat and classic search (regardless of who is providing the facility). Classic search returns multiple answers, ordered in the manner the search algorithm believes is most relevant to the query. Search results can go into many pages. A Chatbot returns one or more answers (but often one), and more than one answer is often returned when the question asks for multiple options. Both approaches are provided … [Read more...] about ChatGPT: Is SEO – As We Know It – Dead?
