Rodale Unveils New Digital Template With Preventioncom Relaunch

first_img Prevention’s new clean design is clearly built with the mobile user in mind. On a desktop there are two highly visual columns above the fold and, below the fold, the content is reorganized into a single column with an endless scroll. Users can navigate the site with a hamburger menu that drills into eight content categories or through a horizontal nav of what are presumably the brand’s most popular categories. On a phone everything is organized into a single column with the hamburger menu acting as the only navigation tool. Lifestyle publisher Rodale introduced its first new website rollout this year with Prevention.com and says that it’s the beginning of more to come. Additionally, the company has partnered with Outbrain to integrate its discovery platform to create a more personalized user experience. Rodale purports that its portfolio of sites, which also includes Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Runner’s World and Bicycling, attract more than 50 million monthly unique visitors, with prevention accounting for more than 12 million alone in January. What’s more, this site will serve as the prototype for all future relaunches.center_img Display ad units seem to dominate the monetization model, with little to no evidence of sponsored content. But on a mobile device, advertisers will likely favor the viewability of the units because they are seamlessly integrated with content.last_img read more

Can you spot the Mars rover on this wild Red Planet landscape

first_img 0 Mars rovers NASA Space Enlarge ImageTry to spot the Mars rover in this view from orbit. NASA/JPL/University of Arizona NASA’s Curiosity rover loves to send selfies and close-up looks at fascinating rocks and even its own hole-y wheels. But sometimes it gets to pose for a portrait from far, far away. Conditions were just right at the end of May for NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft to capture a snapshot of Curiosity working away in an area called Woodland Bay, part of the intriguing “clay-bearing unit.” The enhanced-color image comes from the MRO’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera, which is operated by the University of Arizona in Tucson. If you’re having trouble spotting the rover, check out NASA’s cropped version of the image that highlights its location.hirisecuriosity2Enlarge ImageThat bluish spec is the Curiosity rover. NASA/JPL-Caltech A close look at the rover shows a bright spot in the upper left-hand corner. This is likely the rover’s “head,” which includes a suite of instruments on the end of a mast. The sun was hitting the rover just right. “Mirror-like reflections off smooth surfaces show up as especially bright spots in HiRISE images,” said NASA in a release on Friday. The clay-rich area Curiosity is exploring now is one of the big reasons NASA chose Curiosity’s landing site in Gale Crater. The rover is studying the history of water on Mars and looking for signs of microbial life, past or present. 41 weird objects seen on Mars, explained Spotting NASA machines on Mars is a bit of hobby for the MRO HiRISE team, which showed us both the InSight lander and the now-defunct Opportunity rover last year. Curiosity is NASA’s only working rover on Mars at the moment, but that’s scheduled to change when the Mars 2020 rover gets its own crack at the Red Planet in 2021. The MRO should be there to keep an eye on Mars’ new visitor.
