An expert roundup is a type of blog post that features contributions by multiple experts. Typically, the host blogger will provide a compelling question or a topic for discussion and reach out to various experts to share their insights.
Because you are mentioning recognised people in the post, you are more likely to get traffic from it. People will see a comment by this blogger or this influencer and be curious to see what they have to say. We all like to answer a question ourselves and see how we match up with the big names and roundup posts are a great way to do this.
Twitter is a recommended source for reaching out to people, according to Search Engine Journal. While email is a great way to chat with someone, you can make that quick, initial intro via Twitter plus you may even get other people offering their opinions to use in the conversation. Something as simple as contacting them and saying you want to include them in your roundup post and asking them to chat if they are interested works well.
The process of making this kind of roundup post has been made much easier by a new plugin called Create by Mediavine. This lets you create lists or how to posts with cards as well as being a recipe plugin. So if you want to create a roundup of the top posts on how to use Instagram for business, for example, you can reach out to bloggers, get a quote then link using Create.
Colour psychology is a useful tool when you are creating (or recreating) a brand for your blog. We make a lot of decisions based on colour and see some colours as positive while others a little more negative. Click to find out which ones are which
Roundup posts bring in a ton of traffic for that reason, and they often bring in a bunch of links as well. If the author delivered what they consider excellent advice, they might link to your post to help get that advice shared. They might also promote it because some of their friends and other influencers they respect are on the list as well.

There are several blog posts by others with these URLs in them, but I wanted to preserve them in my own blog for future generations! Most of these links have come from SharePoint 2010, so if you want them to work in differing versions just add a 14, 15 or 16 after the layouts folder to work in 2010, 2013, 2016 or SharePoint Online.
Transglutaminases play many important roles in the body, as they form covalent crosslinks in complex proteins in connection with blood coagulation, skin-barrier formation, extracellular matrix assembly, and fertilization, endowing the substrate with protection from degradation by proteases (Lorand & Graham, 2003). They also form crosslinks in undigested fragments of gliadin derived from wheat, and sensitivity to certain of these fragments leads to the development of autoantibodies to tissue transglutaminase (Esposito et al., 2002) that inhibit its activity.
Xanthine oxidase (XO) produces uric acid from xanthine and hypoxanthine, which are derived from purines. It is activated by iron, which, as we have seen, is often intractably deficient in association with celiac disease. Impaired XO activity would be expected to drive purines towards other degradation pathways. Adenosine deaminase (ADA), a cytoplasmic enzyme that is involved in the catabolism of purine bases, is elevated in celiac disease, and is therefore a useful diagnostic marker (Cakal et al., 2010). In fact, elevation of ADA is correlated with an increase in several inflammatory conditions. Impaired purine synthesis is expected in the context of cobalamin deficiency as well, because methyl melonlyl CoA mutase depends on catalytic action by cobalamin (Allen et al., 1993). Decreased purine synthesis results in impaired DNA synthesis, which then leads to megaloblastic anemia (Boss, 1985), due to slowed renewal of RBC's from multipotent progenitors, a problem that is compounded by suppressed EPO activity (Bergamaschi et al., 2008), a feature of celiac disease.
A remarkable recent case of a three-month old infant suffering from molybdenum deficiency links several aspects of glyphosate toxicity together, although glyphosate exposure was not considered as a possible cause in this case (Boles et al., 1993). This child presented with microcephaly, developmental delay, severe irritability, and lactic acidosis. Lactic acidosis is a striking feature of intentional glyphosate poisoning induced by drinking Roundup (Zouaoui et al., 2013; Beswick & Millo, 2011), and it suggests impaired oxidative respiration, as is seen in E. coli exposed to glyphosate (Lu et al., 2013). In vitro studies of glyphosate in the formulation Roundup have demonstrated an ability to disrupt oxidative respiration by inducing mitochondrial swelling and inhibiting mitochondrial complexes II and III (Peixoto, 2005). This would explain a massive build-up of lactic acid following ingestion of Roundup, due to a switch to anaerobic metabolism. Glyphosate has also been shown to uncouple mitochondrial phosphorylation in plants (Haderly et al., 1977; Ali & Fletcher, 1977).
Transglutaminase also cross-links proteins in the extracellular matrix, and therefore is important for wound healing, tissue remodeling, and stabilization of the extracellular matrix. Thus, autoimmunity to transglutaminase leads to destabilization of the microvilli lining the small intestines. Transglutaminase has 18 free cysteine residues which are targets for S-nitrosylation. A cysteine residue is also involved in the catalytic active site. A unique Ca2+ dependent mechanism regulates nitrosylation by NO, mediated by CysNO (S-nitrosocysteine). It was shown experimentally that up to 15 cysteines of transglutaminase were nitrosylated by CysNO in the presence of Ca2+, and this inhibited its enzymatic activity (Lai et al., 2001).
The link between autoimmune (type 1) diabetes and autoimmune thyroiditis is likely tied to deficiencies in selenoproteins leading to apoptosis. Diabetic rats produce significantly less glomerular heparan sulfate in the kidneys than controls, and this is associated with increased albuminurea (Jaya et al., 1993). However, children with type-1 diabetes and celiac disease excrete lower levels of albumin than type-1 diabetic children without celiac disease, suggesting a protective role for celiac disease (Gopee et al., 2013). Wheat is a good source of tryptophan, so it is likely that tryptophan-derived serotonin induces the symptoms of diarrhea and nausea associated with wheat ingestion, but, at the same time, transports available sulfate through the vasculature, to help maintain adequate supplies of heparan sulfate to the glomerulus. Thus, the increased metabolism of dietary tryptophan to serotonin observed in association with celiac disease may help ameliorate the sulfate deficiency problem. Glyphosate's interference with CYP enzymes links to impaired bile-acid production in the liver, which in turn impairs sterol-based sulfate transport, placing a higher burden on serotonin for this task.

Here we present a roundup of popular reading apps that can be used with EPUB titles. The summary reviews are based on the detailed accessibility evaluations conducted by and with people with print disabilities. More information on our structured evaluation protocol is given at the end of this article.
Our evaluators liked: Many useful features are provided for people with print disabilities, including screen reader support, several options for visual adjustments and read aloud. The app can be used to open titles on your device, and it also connects directly to the special library services in many countries (you will need an account). The mispronunciation of words by the read-aloud feature can be corrected. There is the option for alt text to be displayed below images. Math content can be read aloud (but not navigated in an advanced manner). An enhanced version of the app is built into the BrailleNote Touch device from Humanware.
Be aware: Continuously reading with a screen reader stops after a few pages due to the way the app displays the title. On Android and Windows hyperlinks are not followed when using a screen reader.
Be aware: Kurzweil 3000 is a paid-for subscription service. A demo version is available. The Mac desktop client offers the best EPUB reading experience. On other platforms there are some things to be aware of: if page navigation is provided by the publisher, this is not supported. The text does not reflow like regular EPUB readers. The font cannot be personalized. Some navigational features such as hyperlinks are lost.
Our evaluators liked: eBooks and audiobooks can be read in the same app. There are several ways to customize the visual presentation, including color themes, line length and spacing. The simple to use built-in dictionary (just highlight a word) may be especially useful for people with specific learning disabilities. 2b1af7f3a8
