Jon Cheetham, large animal surgeon and equine researcher at Cornell is part of a partnership with the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Pittsburg.

Scientists at Cornells College of Veterinary Medicine are partnering with renowned human medicine innovators at the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Pittsburgh to advance healing techniques and technologies for animals and humans.

The McGowan Institute and several College of Veterinary Medicine faculty members work on the potential of regenerative techniques such as tissue engineering, cellular therapies and artificial organ devices in repairing damaged tissues and organs. In the collaboration, professionals from both institutions exchange research, techniques and ideas to advance the science and application of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine across species.

This is a natural partnership, said Jon Cheetham, D.V.M., a large animal surgeon and equine researcher at Cornell. We have expertise in preclinical animal models of human disease and special resources for research like looking at laryngeal function over time in horses on a treadmill or taking MRIs of the temporomandibular joint in pigs. We also have experts in developmental biology. Thats important because aspects of regenerative medicine attempt to mimic the early stages of development, when true regeneration, not just repair, can happen.

The research partnership has already spawned shared grant funding. For example, Cheetham and McGowan co-investigators have just received a three-year National Institutes of Health grant to explore new techniques for improving nerve repair, to heal debilitating nerve injuries in people and restore laryngeal function in people, dogs and horses.

Cornell and McGowan scientists also work together to use regeneration techniques in the meniscus, a jaw joint in which tears can affect chewing and speech.

In August, Stephen Badylak, D.V.M., Ph.D., M.D., deputy director of the McGowan Institute, was the keynote speaker at Cornells daylong 10th Annual Biological and Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program Symposium, explaining to an audience of about 90 students and researchers the science behind his groundbreaking advances in regenerative medicine. Other collaborative activities since 2011, when the partnership began, have included retreats, educational exchanges, continuing education and other research partnerships.

Collaboration between PR and SEO teams can lead to new content, better publicity, and even new business. Here’s how to make it work.

Jetta Productions/Getty

Does your PR team know SEO best practices and vice versa?

PR and SEO teams share a common goal–to increase a brand’s presence in the marketplace–but they take different approaches. As a business grows, it can be easy to silo groups and overlook opportunities for collaboration. Forming stronger ties between these two teams can lead to new content, better publicity and even new business. Working with Julie Perrigan, Rise Interactive’s SEO manager, we outlined three areas for companies to begin their PR and SEO collaboration:

The goal of public relations is to create content, find opportunities to share it and to gain exposure for your organization through media, print and digital efforts. SEO should be a piece of that puzzle, not an afterthought. Creating quality content allows your PR department to promote your company, by providing an easy-to-follow path back to your site through relevant links in your content. But both teams need to share common ground in order to build a website’s authority and brand awareness.

Before your PR team creates or pitches a story, members of both SEO and PR teams should discuss key messages, targeted keywords, distribution tactics and overall goals for each team. Also, both teams should explore the content landscape, then brainstorm, and develop content that sets you apart from the competition.

With Google algorithm updates–such as Panda and Penguin–changing the landscape of SEO, there is a growing need for quality content and links in high-authority sites.

Building ongoing, mutually beneficial relationships can help create a more holistic strategy. PR and SEO both utilize relationships to promote websites and brands. While a PR department makes more personal relationships via phone or in-person, SEO groups can build and foster relationships online. Finding those key influencers within your industry and building relationships to obtain links is where SEO and Link Building is heading. Make certain your PR and SEO departments are sharing their media lists and relationship-building opportunities (both online and offline) with one another.

Relationships are instrumental in building a strong network of brand advocates and will provide the most value for your business. However, if your teams are uncoordinated, it can lessen their credibility and damage new and existing relationships.

Related styles: ROCK: Instrumental Rock, ROCK: Experimental Rock People who are interested in Rage Against the Machine Soundgarden Queens of the Stone Age should consider this download. Details: Jack Grillo and Ricardo Hernandez aren't really your typical rock band. They both have day jobs – as video game sound effects designers, and began their collaboration on the LEGENDARY Original Soundtrack from a number of “right place / right time” circumstances. LEGENDARY (aka Pandora) began production back in 2005 at Spark Unlimited (Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty). During the earliest phases of production, it was clear to Jack that the musical score should be based on the sound of a heavy rock band. The basic storyline (man vs. myth in a modern setting) seemed like it could have been written by one of the classic 70's heavy metal bands like Black Sabbath or Judas Priest. As this concept of the basic musical direction was forming, Jack also believed that he was the ideal person to write and produce it. Jack grew up playing guitar and bass along with all the 70's and 80's Metal records he could get his hands on, played in a number of garage bands through high school and college, but has really devoted his career to sound design. Since 2000, Jack has designed and managed the sound production for some of the …From:TomHodgesMasterViews:0 0ratingsTime:00:13More inPeople Blogs

Over the last year, many debates have raged about whether SEOs should start referring to themselves as inbound marketers or a number of other broader disciplines. Many long-time members of the great church of SEO consider the very thought of calling themselves something different almost treasonous at first.

After stewing watching our industry evolve at its most rapid clip ever over the past year, a clear truth has emerged: the only way to consistently win at SEO todayand over the long runis to create high-quality content.

This isnt just the theory of one SEO, inbound marketer, or agency. Many have written about this subject.

In February of 2012, Andy Betts artfully predicted this shift in his article Future of SEO: Change, Convergence, Collaboration.

Like it or not, SEO has changed and its future relies upon a complex relationship with content marketing, social media, and collaborative technology.

Googleschanges over recent years, such asCaffeine andGoogle Panda updates, are mostly concerned with content and relevancy issues. GooglesSSL changes are driving many SEOs to change and adapt the way they work with a renewed focus on quality content, social media signals, and technology.

Yahoo and Bing have also moved away from technical SEO in favor of content marketing and social media.

It is telling that, despite the fact that this was written almost nine months ago, there many who still cling to the old ways of doing and measuring things.

Why?

Because, high-quality content is never easy to create, and its not cheap.

The-Dream has weighed in on rap's obsession with the Illuminati, claiming if it did exist, long-rumoured members like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rihanna wouldn't be allowed to join.

According to the 'Umbrella' hitmaker, critics simply use Illuminati theories to take undermine the hard work successful artists put in.

Talking to The Life Files TV, The-Dream said: “Pretty funny, 'cause nobody really wants to give you credit for where you at.”

The producer also insists black people would never be allowed the chance to join such a supposedly powerful organisation in the first place.

“It's a 'higher' power and they just happened to give it to the black people, yeah right. Whatever,” the 34-year-old scoffed. “If there was an Illuminati, they wouldn't let black people in.”

The long-time Rihanna collaborator recently defended her decision to duet with Chris Brown on the remixes to Birthday Cake and Turn Up the Music, saying 'it's just music'.
