EngagementLed Marketing How Brands Can Deliver More CustomerFocused Journeys in 2019

first_img Today’s technology-driven digital economy has led to there being more opportunities now than ever for marketers to engage with their customers in-the-moment throughout the full customer journey. Marketers and brands don’t need to be ‘journey dictators’, deciding how a journey will pan out before their customers even embark upon it. Today’s technology makes it possible for them to listen and truly hear and understand the intent of their customers as they interact. Through the use of today’s latest technology, brands now have the option and capability to orchestrate context-driven, real-time and ‘live’ journeys at a scale previously unimaginable.With this in mind, it is time to look with fresh eyes at how brands can deliver on customer engagement, and at how brands and marketers can build experiences and more meaningful long-term relationships that meet customer expectations. Ultimately, these days, customers today want to manage their own journey, and it’s up to brands to understand what they need and then deliver value with every interaction, no matter where or when that takes place.Read more: Goldilocks Principle of Marketing: The Need for a Consistent View of the Consumer JourneySeamless customer experiences build relationships  In March 2019, Thunderhead surveyed 4,000 consumers in the US and UK to uncover what consumers expect of brand experiences across the banking, auto, insurance, telco, energy, and retail sectors. Titled Driving The Customer Journey into 2019 and Beyond, the results of Thunderhead’s report were interesting. We found 94% of consumers were frustrated by disjointed experiences and poor customer journeys.When a customer interacts with a brand, he or she is interacting with a collection of different moving parts, including sales and marketing, digital, mobile and e-commerce management, and various backroom functions such as inventory and supply chain management. The problem is that these departments might be optimized for their specific function, but they are sub-optimal at looking at the world through the lens of the customer’s full journey with the brand.The situation is exacerbated by the multiplicity of touchpoints, with around three in five consumers (58%) admitting to having a different experience from the same brand depending on the channel they use. This is an urgent issue that brands are clearly struggling to address. The secret to delivering a quality customer experience is to ensure that the customer doesn’t notice these silos. With almost one-third of customers (31%) still regarding their interactions with brands as merely transactional, there is clearly more than brands can do to build relevant and memorable experiences. Continuity is critical.Customer Loyalty is being challengedConsumers have told us they are no longer willing to put up with poor customer experience and will look elsewhere for products and services if they’re dissatisfied. Two in five of the consumers Thunderhead surveyed (38%) have already taken action and stopped buying from a brand altogether as a result of a bad customer service experience in the last year.This is worrying news for customer retention; consumers are unforgiving and a negative experience can have a direct impact on the size – and profitability – of a brand’s customer base.Indeed, the damage to a brand can go beyond just the loss of a customer. Our survey showed four out of five (82%) disaffected customers will share their views on their experience widely – especially over social media. Of these, 20% said they’d share their thoughts with more than five people, while 7% said they’d share with more than 10. Negative sentiment on social media can spread exponentially, and brands can risk ‘death by social’. It is therefore critical brands ensure every experience is the best they can deliver.Customers are willing to pay a premium for better responses All is not lost, however; if brands are willing to listen, then consumers know what they want. In fact, around a third of customers (35%) are even open to the idea of paying more if the experience is seamless. What consumers want above all else are faster responses, real-time recognition, and an understanding of their context so that the interaction with a brand is easy. Context and customer knowledge clearly matter as demonstrated by the 77% of consumers who said their experience of a brand would be improved if that brand interacted with them via their preferred channel. But brands have to get this interaction right or their customers will punish them.Three in ten consumers (29%) said they’d consider changing to another retailer or provider if they felt comms from a brand to be an invasion of their privacy. And one in five said they’d consider changing if they received no communication at all. That said, more than three quarters (77%) admitted they’d feel more positive about a brand if it engaged in an ongoing conversation that was beneficial to them, as opposed to simply trying to sell them something.What’s more, should customers see these communications as representing genuinely better value and service, they’re far more likely to be willing to share personal information in return – particularly in exchange for loyalty programs, time-saving opportunities, and priority customer services. Striking the right balance in terms of both the frequency and content of customer interaction is a tricky business. It is important to think of it as a conversation. There is as much to be lost as there is to be gained, depending on how far a brand deviates to either side of what appears to be a fairly thin line.Marketing with customers not at themIn order to create the ideal customer experience, brands must be able to make sense of the wealth of interaction and touchpoint signals in real-time to identify the customer and what it is they’re wanting to do. This requires a change of mind set from the brand; instead of asking what it’s trying to sell, the brand now needs to ask how to serve the customer.This is what we at Thunderhead refer to as an ‘intent-driven’ approach to customer journeys. Unlike the more traditional approach, in which product is pushed to a particular customer segment, intent-driven journeys the customer becomes central, recognizing their individual goals and helping them to meet them at the moment they’re interacting. Using all the available insight and context, the brand can then call upon its mobile communications, sales team, or call operators in order to demonstrate its attentiveness to the customer and their needs and of course treat them like a human being, not a ‘target’.ConclusionThe role of the customer journey has now been elevated from delivering planned actions to fostering relationships. We must ensure that these relationships are driven by the customer. It is time, therefore, that we stopped dictating customer journeys, and started enabling them.Read more: Four Ways To Measure The Always-On Consumer Engagement-Led Marketing: How Brands Can Deliver More Customer-Focused Journeys in 2019 Jason HemingwayJuly 9, 2019, 9:00 pmJuly 9, 2019 customer engagementcustomer experienceCustomer Interactionscustomer journeycustomer loyalty Previous ArticleWhy Gamification Doesn’t Work in B2B Customer SupportNext ArticleRubicon Project Appoints Sarah Harden to Board of Directorslast_img read more

Aspirin could be used to treat patients with severe tuberculosis infection

first_img Source:https://www.centenary.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Media-Release_Aspirin-to-fight-a-global-killer-infection.pdf Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Mar 26 2019Research led by the Centenary Institute in Sydney has found a brand new target for treating drug-resistant tuberculosis; our scientists have uncovered that the tuberculosis bacterium hijacks platelets from the body’s blood clotting system to weaken our immune systems.Tuberculosis is far from eradicated around the world and still infects more than 1,400 people per year in Australia. Antibiotic resistant tuberculosis is particularly deadly and expensive to treat, costing up to $250,000 to treat a single case in Australia. Scientists at the Centenary Institute have been working on new ways to treat tuberculosis by increasing the effectiveness of the immune system.Related StoriesResearchers report promising results of potential reversal agentDrug that looks at Alzheimer’s differently ready for its first in-human testingDiscovery of potent compound in native California shrub may lead to treatment for Alzheimer’sUsing the zebrafish model of tuberculosis, the researchers used fluorescent microscopy to observe the build-up of clots and activation of platelets around sites of infection (see supporting videos https://youtu.be/a4ps1_L4pw8 and https://youtu.be/WJUr-jwx2H4). Senior author and head of the Centenary’s Immune-Vascular Interactions laboratory, Dr Stefan Oehlers, says “the zebrafish gives us literal insight into disease processes by watching cells interacting in real time”.Following their hunch that these platelets were being tricked by the infection into getting in the way of the body’s immune system, the researchers treated infections with anti-platelet drugs, including widely available aspirin, and were able to prevent hijacking and allow the body to control infection better.Dr Elinor Hortle, lead author of the paper published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, and Research Officer in Centenary’s Immune-Vascular Interactions laboratory says “This is the first time that platelets have been found to worsen tuberculosis in an animal model. It opens up the possibility that anti-platelet drugs could be used to help the immune system fight off drug resistant TB”.There are over 1.2 million Australians living with latent tuberculosis, a non-infectious form of TB that puts them at risk of developing the active disease. “Our study provides more crucial evidence that widely available aspirin could be used to treat patients with severe tuberculosis infection and save lives,” says Dr Hortle.​last_img read more

European shares flat Daimlers profit warning knocks auto stocks

first_img(For a live blog on European stocks, type LIVE/ in an Eikon news window) July 12 (Reuters) – European shares were little changed in early trade on Friday, as investors parsed through China trade data that came in at market open, an indicator of global economic growth, while a profit warning from Daimler knocked down auto stocks. China’s yuan-denominated exports rose 6.1% in the first half of this year from a year earlier, while imports increased 1.4%, customs data showed, which resulted in a trade surplus of 1.23 trillion yuan ($178.94 billion) for the first six months. The data comes after a spate of disappointing economic reports from around the globe, which showed that the global economy suffered from a protracted U.S.-China trade war that forced major central banks to take a more accommodative stance. The pan-European stocks benchmark was flat at 0712 GMT with auto stocks down 0.6%. AdvertisementDaimler slipped 2.7% after the luxury carmaker warned investors it expected to swing to a second-quarter loss before interest and taxes of 1.6 billion euros. Healthcare stocks slipped as drugmakers resumed their slide after the White House said it was ditching a key plan to lower U.S. drug prices and raising the possibility of new measures focused on drugmakers.

During these feuds, the worms emit one of the loudest sounds in the ocean, according to a new study. The source of the underwater hullabaloo is a nearly transparent segmented worm called the Leocratides kimuraorum, which lives inside sponges 279 to 554 feet (85 to 169 meters) deep off the coast of Japan. [The 12 Weirdest Animal Discoveries]Advertisement These wigglies are just a tad more than an inch (29 millimeters) long and have lengthy tentacles and a big mouth (literally). These seemingly quiet creatures revealed their true nature under the spotlight in the lab. A group of researchers used an instrument called a hydrophone to record 15 pops that were emitted from three kimuraorums as they were fighting. In a marine feud researchers dub “mouth-fighting,” the worms approached each other headfirst with their mouths open. During such encounters, the worms’ pharynx muscles expand rapidly, creating a cavitation bubble that collapses and produces a loud “pop” while the worms launch into each other. The researchers found that these pops can reach 157 decibels in the water (which is a different measurement than decibels in the air). From right next to the water tank, the pops sounded like humans snapping their fingers, lead author Goto Ryutaro, an assitant professor at Kyoto University told Live Science. “Though they probably sound louder if you hear them in the water.” The worms are as loud as snapping shrimps, which are one of the biggest noisemakers in the ocean, the authors wrote. What’s more, they found that these worms did not make any noise when simply disturbed, they only did so when they were fighting. They “may use mouth-fighting to defend territory or living chambers from other worms,” the authors wrote July 8 in the journal Current Biology. “A loud pop may be a byproduct of the rapid mouth attack, but it may also aid intraspecific communication.” A loud noise could somehow determine the victor of the fight or even reveal the whereabouts of nearby worms, they wrote.

The Marshall Islands Are 10 Times More Radioactive Than Chernobyl

first_img 10 Times HBO’s ‘Chernobyl’ Got the Science Wrong These findings are important because “measuring the radioactive contamination of the crater sediment is a first step in assessing the overall impact of nuclear weapons testing on the ocean ecosystems,” the researchers wrote in the study. In the third study, the researchers tested more than 200 fruits — mostly coconuts and pandanus — on 11 of the islands from four different atolls in the northern Marshall Islands. Cesium-137 levels didn’t look good for a sizeable chunk of the fruits on Bikini and Rongelap atolls, which had radioactivity levels higher than those deemed safe by several countries and international organizations, the researchers found. More work is needed to educate people living on the Marshall Islands about these dangers. Moreover, these findings and future research can shed light on whether it’s safe for the Marshallese people to resettle or harvest food on some of these islands, the researchers said. The researchers tested coconuts and pandanus fruit (shown here) for radioactivity on 11 of the islands.

When testing the soil for plutonium-239 and -240, the researchers found that some of the islands had levels that were between 10 and 1,000 times higher than those on Fukushima (where an earthquake and tsunami led to the meltdown of nuclear reactors) and about 10 times higher than levels in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. The researchers took only a limited number of soil samples, meaning a more comprehensive survey is needed, they said. Regardless, they were surprised that neither national governments nor international organizations had “any further guidance on permissible plutonium levels in the soil,” even though levels in the Marshall Islands were high, the researchers wrote in the study.

Some of these tests happened in the Marshall Islands, a chain of islands between Hawaii and the Philippines that was then a district of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands and was run by the U.S. on behalf of the United Nations. The first two bombs, called Able and Baker, were tested on Bikini Atoll in 1946 and kicked off a 12-year period of nuclear testing on the Bikini and Enewetak atolls, during which the U.S. tested 67 nuclear weapons. The first-ever hydrogen bomb test, with the code name Ivy Mike, was tested on Enewetak in 1951. The U.S. conducted its largest hydrogen bomb test on Bikini Atoll — the 1954 Castle Bravo bomb, which was more than 1,000 times more powerful than Little Boy, the uranium weapon that decimated Hiroshima. In addition to contaminating the Bikini and Enewetak atolls, nuclear fallout from the tests also rained down on and sickened people living on Rongelap and Utirik atolls (also part of the Marshall Islands), the researchers said. In 2016, a team of researchers from Columbia University in New York published a study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on the background gamma radiation in three of the northern Marshall atolls: Enewetak, Bikini and Rongelap. The researchers found that radiation levels on Bikini were higher than previously reported, so they decided to do more in-depth studies on radioactivity in the islands. (Nuclear weapons are one source that releases gamma-rays, which are like energetic X-rays.) More fallout Now, that same team has written three new studies, published online yesterday (July 15) in the journal PNAS, on four of the atolls in the northern Marshall islands: Bikini, Enewetak, Rongelap and Utirik. External gamma radiation levels were significantly elevated on Bikini Atoll, on Enjebi Island in Enewetak Atoll and on Naen Island in Rongelap Atoll, compared with an island in the southern Marshall Islands that the scientists used as a control, the researchers found. The levels on Bikini and Naen islands were so high, they surpassed the maximum exposure limit that the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands agreed to in the 1990s, the researchers said. (On a side note, bikini swimsuits weren’t named after the island because of its tropicality, but because the French designer wanted the two-piece swimsuit to be “explosive,” just like the bomb tested there, said one of the study’s senior scientists, Ivana Nikolic-Hughes, director of the K1 Project at the Center for Nuclear Studies and a senior lecturer of chemistry at Columbia University.) [Flying Saucers to Mind Control: 22 Declassified Military & CIA Secrets] The researchers also found that the islands of Runit and Enjebi in Enewetak Atoll, as well as on Bikini and Naen islands, had high concentrations of certain radioactive isotopes in the soil. (An isotope is an element with a different number of neutrons in its nucleus.) These four islands had radioactive plutonium levels that were higher than those found in Fukushima and Chernobyl, the researchers found. “What was surprising was just how high the external gamma radiation was for Naen, which is the outer island for Rongelap Atoll,” Nikolic-Hughes told Live Science. “It was populated during the Bravo test … [the people there] were then moved, moved back and moved again. It’s quite a dreadful history of what happened to Rongelapese people.” In their second study, the researchers worked with professional divers, who collected 130 soil samples from the Castle Bravo Crater at Bikini Atoll. The level of some of the isotopes — plutonium-239 and -240, americium-241 and bismuth-207 — was an order of magnitude higher than levels found on other Marshall Islands, the researchers found.

Three newborn kittens found dead with legs bound by rope among abandoned

first_imgThree newborn kittens were found dead with their legs bound by rope at a refuse collection point in a northern Hong Kong village on Friday, prompting a police investigation into animal cruelty.The trio were among a litter of five abandoned on Shek Tong Tsuen off Yau Shin Street in Yuen Long.One of the two surviving domestic shorthair cats, which were taken to the Wan Chai headquarters of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) for treatment, later died. Nation 22 May 2019 Miri launches major anti-animal cruelty campaign The case, reported by businessman Cheung Chi-yeung, 44, past midnight on Thursday after he heard the squeals of the kittens, was the second local incident of animal cruelty in a week. AdChoices广告Officers are investigating and no arrests have been made.Cheung found one of the surviving cats attempting to crawl out of a plastic bag at the bottom of a massive rubbish bin.“Inside the bag, there was another surviving kitten and three dead cats with their legs tied together with rope,” he said, adding that he believed the animals were found less than 12 hours after they were abandoned.Police hunt suspected poisoner after four dogs die and three fall illCheung, who is an animal-lover and keeps about 20 abandoned dogs at home in the same village, condemned the person behind the case of the kittens. “This gives the animals no chance to live,” he said.Officers were called in soon after 12.30am when Cheung made an emergency call.According to police, three dead cats were found at the scene and the two surviving animals were picked up by SPCA staff. Police are treating the case as cruelty to animals.An SPCA spokeswoman said one of the surviving cats later died at its Wan Chai headquarters.She said the dead bodies would be sent to the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department to determine the cause of death.It was the second report of animal cruelty in the city this week. On Wednesday, four of seven dogs suspected to have been poisoned died at a house in Tai Po Tin village off Ping Che Road, Ta Kwu Ling. The three surviving dogs were being treated at the SCPA headquarters.Three months ago, the carcasses of least 10 dogs and cats in various stages of decay were found in an animal shelter in the same district.Opinion: As a pet-loving city, Hong Kong should step up efforts against animal abuseOfficers also discovered nearly 100 malnourished animals in the shelter. Police arrested a 62-year-old man in charge of the site for animal cruelty.A spate of dog deaths last year led to more than 50,000 people petitioning the government to crack down on animal cruelty.At least nine dogs suspected to have been poisoned died in Tai Po and Fanling in a week in April last year. Six among the group died after their owners walked them at Wah Ming Estate in Fanling.In Hong Kong, cruelty to animals carries a maximum penalty of three years in jail and a fine of up to HK$200,000 (US$25,600).For the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2019.

million from Allen while supplementing this philanthropy with federal grants Allen didn’t appear at today’s unveiling But in response to a reporter’s question about why he was captivated by the cell Jones pointed to its intricate machinery which from 10000 feet up isn’t all that different than the brain’s “The issue of complexity is one” Allen keeps coming back to he said A little-noticed clause in the 2011 spending bill signed into law last week cuts off funding for a host of scientific exchanges between the United States and China Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) a fierce opponent of the Chinese government and chair of a key appropriations panel inserted two sentences into the legislation that prohibits any joint scientific activity between the two nations that involves NASA or is coordinated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) White House officials say that they are still reviewing the language On the surface it appears to apply only to those two entities and the bill extends only for the rest of the 2011 fiscal year which ends on 30 September But that still cuts a wide swath And Wolf makes it clear that he would like to permanently shut down all collaborations between the two governments "We don’t want to give them the opportunity to take advantage of our technology and we have nothing to gain from dealing with them" says Wolf "And frankly it boils down to a moral issue Would you have a bilateral program with Stalin" The language in the spending bill says that no government funds can be used by NASA or OSTP "to develop design plan promulgate implement or execute a bilateral policy program order or contract of any kind to participate collaborate or coordinate bilaterally in any way with China or any Chinese-owned company" It also prevents any NASA facility from hosting "official Chinese visitors" Wolf says that he singled out NASA because China’s space program although nominally independent "is run by the People’s Liberation Army" But the inclusion of OSTP is meant to cast a much bigger net he adds "It addresses everything the entire bilateral relationship on science and technology with respect to NASA and everything that involves OSTP" he says "It’s the whole ball of wax" In January the two countries signed an extension of a 1979 agreement on science and technology cooperation that has spawned dozens of projects sponsored by several US agencies and their Chinese counterparts A fact sheet accompanying the 19 January event at the White House between presidential science advisor John Holdren and Chinese science minister Wan Gang cites cooperative research covering "fisheries earth and atmospheric sciences basic research in physics and chemistry energy agriculture civil industrial technology geology health and disaster relief" In November 2006 the National Science Foundation (NSF) opened an office in Beijing to foster such research collaborations for example and in November 2009 the two countries announced what may be the largest single joint activity: a $150-million Clean Energy Research Center with matching contributions from the US Department of Energy and China’s Ministry of Science and Technology and its National Energy Administration Wolf has long criticized China’s suppression of religious and minority leaders and political dissidents as well as its policies toward Tibet He’s also used his position as chairman of the House spending panel on Commerce Justice and Science-which funds NASA NSF the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as well as the Justice and Commerce departments-to berate federal agencies on their vulnerability to cyberterrorism Earlier this year for example NSF’s Inspector General described a recent 2010 attack on NSF computers that ironically affected grant applications to its Office of Cyber Infrastructure "China is spying against us and every US government agency has been hit by cyberattacks" says Wolf in explaining why he opposes any collaboration with the Chinese government "They are stealing technology from every major US company They have taken technology from NASA and they have hit the NSF computers You name the company and the Chinese are trying to get its secrets" Although Wolf says that ban is confined to activities funded by the Chinese government or government-owned companies he says that "maybe next year we’ll include NGOs [non-governmental organizations]" He adds that anyone who thinks the Chinese NGOs can operate independently of the government "is really nave" bringing together cell biologistscom Village Fire Chief David Foster told TIME a gospel singer and family friend 1994 nothing has changed Listen to the full Science
