USA Today By : Alan Siegel

During a taping of the Today show, they began discussing a new email address to which viewers could send feedback.

This flustered the usually unflappable hosts, especially Gumbel, who didn’t know what to make of the “@” symbol. - Referenced Article


How digital collaboration will evolve in 2015  

ZDNet By : Dion Hinchcliffe

Information technology typically changes in leaps and bounds, and for collaboration in digital channels, those changes have been rather turbulent over the last decade.

While the most significant overall trend during this time has been the strategic up-leveling of corporate engagement using the social business model to foster large-scale, high impact corporate communities, the pendulum of innovation has recently swung back to more intimate and close quarters. - Referenced Article


Mike Krzyzewski Earns 1,000th Win  

NY Times By : Staff Reporting

No record was at stake Sunday afternoon. Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski had already taken care of that, eclipsing Bob Knight’s mark for wins by an N.C.A.A. Division I men’s basketball coach, 902, in 2011 and chugging steadily onward.

Still, an announced crowd of 19,812 at Madison Square Garden on Sunday had the chance to see four little digits align to represent one big, round number — and with it, a breakthrough into another echelon of the sport. - Referenced Article

No Actors or Actresses of Color Among Oscar Nominees  

NBC News By : Staff Reporting

This year's lineup of Academy Award nominees for acting is the least racially diverse in 17 years.

All the performers nominated across the four acting categories are white — the first time that's happened since 1998, the year "Titanic" scored the top prize. David Oyelowo, the British-born Nigerian actor who played the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in "Selma," was widely expected to be nominated for Best Actor — but he was shut out.

Bradley Cooper ("American Sniper") and Steve Carrel ("Foxcatcher") nabbed nominations in that column, defying predictions from Oscar pundits. - Referenced Article


Are Girl Scouts losing out as cookie sales enter digital realm?  

CNN By : Staff Reporting

When I was a member of the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York, cookie time was my favorite time of the year, from first grade to 12th grade.

I was the girl who hit up teachers before anyone else had a chance, the co-worker's daughter who showed up in person before it became the norm to pass around the order form.

Camping was fun, but nothing beat the joy of watching my order form fill with names as I went from door to door in my apartment building until I reached the bottom. - Referenced Article
