How Bosses Waste Their Employees’ Time. Brain Lab Works - Coding the future. Japan has found a ‘semi-infinite’ deposit of rare earth minerals, enough to supply the world for centuries to come. Deep sea mud off the coast of Japan contains enough rare earth metals to supply the world for centuries to come, a new study reveals.

Japan has found a ‘semi-infinite’ deposit of rare earth minerals, enough to supply the world for centuries to come

The study published this week in Scientific Reports says the deposit, which lies within the Japanese exclusive economic zone, contains 16 million tons of rare-earth oxides, enough to meet the demand for yttrium for 780 years, europium for 620 years, terbium for 420 years and dysprosium for 730 years. The deposit “has the potential to supply these metals on a semi-infinite basis to the world,” the study said. Rare earth elements are used extensively in technology such as smart phones, electric and hybrid cars, rechargeable batteries and screen display panels. The find could be a game changer for major electronics manufacturer Japan which has been at the mercy of the world’s largest supplier China. In 2010, China cut its export quotas on rare earth minerals by 40 per cent and prices soared.

It’s very exciting to see one of our projects, Root Solutions, featured for the cool work that they are doing, and what better place to be featured than on the Story of Stuff Project blog?

Root Solutions and the Story of Stuff

Root Solutions is dedicated to providing conservationists and policy makers with tools and resources informed by the proven methods of behavioral science, allowing them to create more effective campaigns, polices and strategies that reflect how people process information and make decisions. With techniques like, “green nudges,” people can be motivated to use behavior that is both good for them and good for the environment. The project is the brainchild of Nya Van Leuvan and Rod Fujita, who met at the Environmental Defense Fund where they led the introduction of decision science to their colleagues. Read more about how behavioral science can improve conservation outcomes at the Root Solutions website and on the Story of Stuff blog! A Cognitive Trick for Solving Problems Creatively. Many experts argue that creative thinking requires people to challenge their preconceptions and assumptions about the way the world works.

A Cognitive Trick for Solving Problems Creatively

One common claim, for example, is that the mental shortcuts we all rely on to solve problems get in the way of creative thinking. How can you innovate if your thinking is anchored in past experience? But I’m not sure that questioning biases from your past experience and assumptions is the best path to creative problem solving — it simply does not seem to fit well with how the mind actually works. The role of thinking processes in decision making was made prominent by Daniel Kahneman and the late Amos Tversky, whose Nobel Prize–winning research argues that economic decision makers are subject to deeply held cognitive biases. Blue Ocean Strategy. Blue Ocean Strategy is a marketing theory from a book published in 2005 which was written by W.

Blue Ocean Strategy

Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne, professors at INSEAD and co-directors of the INSEAD Blue Ocean Strategy Institute. Based on a study of 150 strategic moves spanning more than a hundred years and thirty industries, Kim & Mauborgne argue that companies can succeed by creating "blue oceans" of uncontested market space, as opposed to "red oceans" where competitors fight for dominance, the analogy being that an ocean full of vicious competition turns red with blood.

They assert that these strategic moves create a leap in value for the company, its buyers, and its employees while unlocking new demand and making the competition irrelevant. The book presents analytical frameworks and tools to foster an organization's ability to systematically create and capture blue oceans.[1] The expanded edition of Blue Ocean Strategy was published in February, 2015. Utility and Consumer Data: A New Source of Power in the Energy Internet of Things.

We are living through what you could call the era of the electricity dilemma.

Utility and Consumer Data: A New Source of Power in the Energy Internet of Things

On one hand, electricity remains a driving force of economic development. On the other hand, electrical infrastructure is not only extremely expensive, but its continued reliance on fossil fuel sources is one of the major contributors to carbon pollution. More than 1.3 billion people still aren’t connected to the grid, largely because of the cost and complexity of the process. Nevertheless, electric power generation is expected to grow by 93 percent by 2040, and the vast majority of that growth will occur in non-OECD nations. Ch2ref2a. Sci-Hub: removing barriers in the way of science. Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Energy Points.

Before being acquired in 2015, Energy Points was a privately held source energy intelligence company.

Energy Points

Its SaaS platform,now in use by Lux Research, measures energy use from its source through the site of consumption. By measuring what is known as "source energy," the company is able to convert all energy sources, including water, electricity, fuels, and materials, into a single common unit.[2] History[edit] Energy Points was founded in May 2011 by Dr. Consumption Management. In an average IT enterprise, 15 percent of servers aren’t backed up, while 16 percent of Windows assets lack anti-virus protection.

“Book-to-floor” gaps — or the difference between contracted and actual assets — average 14 percent and PC baseline estimates are typically 8 percent off.* Even more worrying, many CIOs aren’t aware they have a problem. When it comes to their deployment of enterprise IT assets, they don’t always know what they don’t know. Consumption Management from ISG Governance Services employs proven IT intelligence tools to validate consumption of resources, verify backups and anti-virus protection and identify redundant and unused assets. By reconciling contracted assets against those actually in the enterprise, Consumption Management ensures billing accuracy and reduces invoicing errors.

The result: reduced cost and risk and enhanced operational compliance. List of Greek mythological figures. List of knowledge deities.
