香港天文台自今天(2011年8月23日)起增加透過天文台「微博」賬戶和天文台「Twitter」賬戶提供地震信息。
當中包括經天文台分析的世界各地強度達6.0級或以上的地震消息,和市民大眾關心的本地有感地震信息。
天文台現時在「微博」和「Twitter」上除了提供地震信息外,還提供實時天氣警告、惡劣天氣相關的報告、天文台的最新消息和動態等。

Starting from today (23 August 2011), the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) enhances its service by delivering earthquake messages to the Weibo and Twitter accounts of the HKO.
The earthquake messages include those of worldwide earthquakes of magnitude 6.0 or above as analyzed by the HKO, and locally felt earthquakes that are of interest to the public.
In addition to the earthquake messages, the HKO currently delivers via its Weibo and Twitter accounts the real-time weather warnings, weather reports related to hazardous weather, as well as news and sidelights of the HKO.

為進一步加強「我的天文台」天氣服務給流動用戶,天文台於 2011年3月10日推出「我的天文台」iPhone 新版本。
To further enhance the "MyObservatory" weather services for people on the move, the Hong Kong Observatory launched a new iPhone version of "MyObservatory" on 10 March 2011.

 

 

MyObservatory for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on the iTunes App Store
「我的天文台」於香港境內提供定點天氣服務。
若可查詢位置,此應用程式會顯示最接近用戶位置的氣象站所提供的天氣資料。當中包括溫度、相對濕度、雨量、風向、風速及天氣照片等等。
若不能取得用戶所在位置,或用戶鄰近的氣象站沒有數據提供時,此應用程式會使用天文台總部及天星碼頭氣象站的資料代替。於這些情況下,天氣資料會用灰色顯示。
“MyObservatory” provides location-specific weather service in Hong Kong.
If the application is allowed to determine your location, weather information including temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, wind direction and speed, as well as weather photograph collected from nearby weather stations will be displayed.
If user’s location could not be obtained, or data is not available from nearby weather station, weather information of the HKO headquarters as well as Star Ferry weather station will be displayed instead. In such circumstances, the information will be displayed in grey colour.
請注意,由 iPhone 估算的位置可能與實際位置有差別。同時,由於氣象站與用戶可能位處不同高度,以及地形上的差異,所以「我的天文台」顯示的天氣資料可能與你所在地的天氣情況有分別。
Please note that the estimated location provided by the mobile phone may be deviated from your actual location. Meanwhile, owing to the dissimilarity in altitude and topography between your location and the reporting weather station, weather information displayed may be different from the actual conditions.
「我的天文台」版本 3.0 支援透過推播服務接收天氣警告。由於推播服務是 Apple 提供的一項服務,香港天文台並不保證用戶能透過推播接收到天氣警告提示。
The “MyObservatory” supports the reception of weather warnings through Push Notification Service in version 3.0. As Push Notification is a service provided by Apple, the Hong Kong Observatory does not guarantee the successful reception of weather warning alerts through Push Notification.

More Employers Screening Candidates via Social Networking Sites

2009-08-23 22:42 by siu sir
瀏覽:738

45% of employers reported in a June 2009 CareerBuilder survey that they use social networking sites to screen potential employees, compared to only 22% of employers last year. 11% of employers plan to start using social networking sites for the screening process. More than 2,600 hiring managers participated in the survey.

Of those who conduct online searches/background checks of job candidates, 29% use Facebook, 26% use LinkedIn and 21% use MySpace. One-in-ten (11%) search blogs while 7% follow candidates on Twitter.

 

Here are five tips for job seekers to keep a positive image online:

1. Clean up digital dirt before you begin your job search.
Remove any photos, content and links that can work against you in an employer’s eyes.

2. Consider creating your own professional group
 on sites like Facebook or BrightFuse.com. It’s a great way to establish relationships with leaders, recruiters and potential referrals.

3. Keep gripes offline.
Keep the content you post focused on positive things, whether it’s related to professional or personal information. Make sure to highlight specific accomplishments inside and outside of work.

4. Be selective about whom you accept as friends.
Don’t forget others can see your friends when they search for you. Monitor comments made by others and consider using the "block comments" feature. Even better, set your profile to "private" so only designated friends can view it.

5. If you’re still employed, don’t mention your job search
 in your Tweets or status updates. There are multiple examples of people who have gotten fired as a result of doing this. In addition, a potential employer might assume that if you’re willing to search for a new job on your current company’s time, why wouldn’t you do so on theirs?

Tweet = Pointless Babble ?

2009-08-19 00:32 by siu sir
瀏覽:3,064

A while back we embarked on a study that evolved after a having a debate in the office as to how people are using and consuming Twitter. Some felt it was their source of news and articles, others felt it was just a bunch of self-promotion with very few folks actually paying attention. But mostly, many people still perceive Twitter as just mindless babble of people telling you what they are doing minute-by-minute; as if you care they are eating a sandwich at the moment.

So we took 2,000 tweets from the public timeline (in English and in the US) over a 2-week period from 11:00a to 5:00p (CST) and captured tweets in half-hour increments. Then we categorized them into 6 buckets:

News, Spam, Self-Promotion, Pointless Babble, Conversational and Pass-Along Value.

Results
The results were interesting. As you may have guessed, Pointless Babble won with 40.55% of the total tweets captured; however, Conversational was a very close second at 37.55%, and Pass-Along Value was third (albeit a distant third) at 8.7% of the tweets captured.
