According to the infographic produced by Westminster Bridge Student Accommodation (WBSA), if you don’t organize and review your notes within the first 9 hours, 60% of what you have learned will be forgotten. Writing down and reviewing your notes is important because you may not have any ideas how to apply what you have learned at the point when you receive the information. Reflecting on them later may be more effective…

Commentary by Dr. Whitesel: “Bentley University, the Waltham, Massachusetts school known for the rigor of its management programs, has produced an engaging free slideshow of infographics about the Millennial generation. The information is presented in a way that makes for easy utilization in presentations. Some of the more interesting findings are that two significant factors for Millennial job satisfaction is advancement opportunity and organizational ethics. To quote the author, ‘they want to do well, while doing good’.”

A couple of months ago, I put together a graphic showing the political positions of American churches and religions. My analysis was based on Pew’s 2007 Religious Landscape survey, which included more than 35,000 people.
My work received a lot of attention. One of the most fascinating pieces of the graph was the position of people who belonged mainline churches. Despite the liberal positions of clergy and church leaders, mainline Protestants are some of the most conservative on economic issues. Mainline Protestants favored a smaller government that provided fewer services. The mainline churches could be described as “libertarian” because they also favored a government that stayed out of policies protecting morality.
Evangelicals held about the same position on economics, but they were much more conservative on the role of government in protecting traditional morality. Black Protestants, too, were conservative on social issues. They were much more supportive a larger government on economics.
Dan Olson and Ben Pratt of Purdue University crunched a different set of numbers but came up with remarkably similar results. They presented some of their results at the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion meetings last week…

“CIOs who are focused on IT-driven business innovation tend to have six traits in common, according to new research by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services. These CIOs are helping their companies achieve significant business benefits and, in turn, are surging ahead of their competitors.
The HBR research – pulled from surveys of more than 400 business leaders around the world – found that companies pursuing IT-enabled business innovation as a core strategy are fundamentally changing how they engage with customers, launch new products, and more.
To learn more about these six behaviors, download the full report: Business Transformation and the CIO Role.”

Do Bible Haters Now Equal Bible Lovers? American Bible Society Thinks So
“The number of Americans who read Scripture at least four times a week and believe that it is the inspired word of God has fallen to just under 1 in 5, according to new research from the American Bible Society (ABS).
The same percentage of Americans (19 percent) are now ‘antagonistic’ toward the Bible, reading it less than once per month and believing it is a book of teachings written by men that contain stories and advice.
Thus, the ‘percentage of Scripture haters now equals Scripture lovers,’ notes the [original] press release for the 2014 edition of ABS’s annual State of the Bible report, conducted by Barna Group. The main reason: millennials.”

Global Religious Diversity
by Pew Research, 4/4/14
“Several years ago, the Pew Research Center produced estimates of the religious makeup of more than 200 countries and territories, which it published in the 2012 report “The Global Religious Landscape.” The effort was part of the Pew-Templeton Global Religious Futures project, which analyzes religious change and its impact on societies around the world. As part of the next phase of this project, Pew Research has produced an index that ranks each country by its level of religious diversity.”
