CCSlogotwo.gif
The Cat Care Society (CCS) is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. The announcement is made by Shari Shiffer-Krieger, CCS Executive Director, who says the milestone is being officially commemorated June 5th at Green Gables Country Club with the auction of 17 painted fiberglass cats, each about 28" tall and painted a different theme by local artists.

"Our 30th anniversary art event, 'Tails of the Painted Cats,' has been in progress for more than a year now to raise awareness of our past 30 years of growth and the work going on every day for the cats being helped by our cageless shelter and other related projects in the community," Shiffer-Krieger says.

Industry supporters gathered at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science May 26th to celebrate Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper's signing of The Innovation Reinvestment Act, Senate Bill 47. The announcement is made by Holli Baumunk, President & CEO of the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA), who says the bill was initiated during the 2010-11 legislative session by the CBSA in partnership with the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association (CCIA) and sponsored by Senator Rollie Heath, Representative Cheri Gerou, and Representative Jim Riesberg.

"Colorado's bioscience community is simply thrilled that, beginning in 2014, up to $2 million annually will be added to our state's Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program," Baumunk says.

HBS Prof via Businessweek.com: "'I'm hard-pressed to think of a stronger brand than Oprah'"
ForAGreatReadBrown.jpg
Quoting from Businessweek:
 
"It propelled her show, which drew about 12 million viewers in the U.S. at its peak, through more than 4,500 episodes and some 30,000 guests. She stayed on message as she launched her magazine and produced movies and developed a raft of syndicated television shows including those of Dr. Phil McGraw and Rachael Ray. The brand ultimately made the meticulously manicured entrepreneur very rich, with an estimated fortune of $2.7 billion, according to Forbes. 'I'm hard-pressed to think of a stronger brand than Oprah, and I've studied 200 years of brands,' says Harvard Business School professor Nancy F. Koehn."

Gigaom post: 'Donít Tell Google News Youíre a Blog!'
TakeALookBlue.jpg
Quoting from the posting:

"Google recently rolled out some enhancements to its Google News site, including settings that allow users to say whether they want to see more or less news from “blogs.” But how does the search giant define the term “blog?” After all, the lines between traditional media and the blogosphere have blurred a lot over the past few years, with traditional media entities launching blogs, and some blog sites becoming major media entities. According to Google, it looks at a bunch of different factors the company won’t specify, but the main one is whether a source calls itself a blog or not, just reinforcing the point that drawing a distinction between blogs and non-blogs is a mug’s game when it comes to the news."
