T he backlash after the heady Arab revolutions of 2011. The rumblings of war with nuclear-aspiring Iran. The bloody persistence of Bashar al-Assad in civil war-torn Syria. Not to mention a Europe mired in its biggest crisis since World War II and an American presidential campaign that distracted and depressed in equal measure. If ever there were a year for Big Ideas, and a frustration at not hearing them from our leaders, 2012 was it. Which made it all the more rewarding -- if even more challenging than usual -- to identify this year's Foreign Policy Global Thinkers.

The Arab Spring and the Chinese Autumn Yu Hua is a Chinese author whose first collection of essays in English, “China in Ten Words,” was just published. This essay, like the book (both unpublished in China), was translated by Allan Barr. This article originally appeared in the “Los Angeles Times.” When the young Mao Tse-tung agitated for revolution, he found a vivid way to get his point across to an uneducated audience: He picked up a single chopstick and snapped it in two.
Most organisations do not practice what they preach when it comes to partnerships and collaborations. Andrew Armour FRSA asks why this paradox exists and how can it be overcome. The latest General Electric Innovation Barometer found that 80 percent of top executives agree their organisations need to innovate differently and 86 percent say that partnerships and collaboration are the key to this. Yet there is a ‘partnership paradox’: only 21 percent are practicing what they preach. A year earlier the 2011 Barometer highlighted the importance of local small businesses, local community and partnerships as the key elements of innovation.
Heartland Documents Reveal Fringe Denial Group Plans to Pursue Koch Money, Dupe Children and Cultivate RevkinRacing around the internet are some internal documents that appear to be from the Heartland Institute, a relatively obscure hard-core anti-science think tank.

States around the country, including Texas, Ohio, Missouri and North Carolina are poised to cut back on government support for clean energy... read more
The words ‘European directive’ are usually enough to make all but the most dedicated policy observer yawn and fall asleep. While most of us were busy preparing for Christmas, though, the European Commission published something different which should make us sit up and take notice. The public procurement reform proposals have the potential to create a defining moment in the sector’s role in public service delivery. The proposals include a dedicated chapter on social services procurement.
A segunda edição da campanha, intitulada "Operação Censos Sénior", realiza-se em todo o país, entre domingo e 29 de fevereiro, e tem como principal objetivo atualizar os dados existentes relativamente aos idosos que vivem sozinhos ou isolados, segundo a GNR. Aquela força de segurança adianta que do registo consta a identificação de cada idoso, idade, contacto e identificação dos familiares mais próximos. O porta-voz da GNR, tenente-coronel Pedro Costa Lima, disse à agência Lusa que os idosos identificados ficam registados e localizados através de GPS pelos militares da GNR, permitindo no futuro, como em situações de catástrofes, saber onde se encontram. A operação, que se realizou pela primeira vez no ano passado, permitiu identificar 15.596 idosos que vivem sozinhos ou isolados. Segundo os dados enviados à Lusa, Santarém, Porto, Castelo Branco, Bragança, Braga, Vila Real e Aveiro são os distritos com mais casos, mais de mil em cada um deles.
