Terrapower, a startup funded in part by Nathan Myhrvold and Bill Gates, is moving closer to building a new type of nuclear reactor called a traveling wave reactor that runs on an abundant form of uranium.
British actor John Cleese is best known for his comedic talent as one of the founding members of Monty Python , which makes his intellectual insights on the origin of creativity particularly fascinating. This talk from the 2009 Creativity World Forum in Germany is part critique of modernity’s hustle-and-bustle, part handbook for creating the right conditions for creativity. “We get our ideas from what I’m going to call for a moment our unconscious — the part of our mind that goes on working, for example, when we’re asleep.
Based on a 25-hectare site in east London, the London Sustainable Industries Park -- as depicted in this CGI image -- hopes to lay the foundations for a cleaner and profitable future for businesses and residents of Dagenham. The design of the park also incorporates tree planting and swales which help mitigate local water and air pollution, as this architect's image shows.

O Brasil recicla apenas 13% do que é jogado fora, segundo dados de 2010 do Compromisso Empresarial para Reciclagem (Cempre) . E você? Sabe o quanto recicla?
Tratamento Biológico, Compacto e Modular de Esgoto Sanitário - Mizumo Trata o esgoto no local onde é gerado e o transforma em água tratada e desinfectada, que pode ser devolvida sem risco ao meio ambiente ou reaproveitada, economizando água potável para fins mais nobres. Do modelo Family ao Tower, tratam de 1.600 L a 400.000 L por dia de esgoto doméstico. Isto significa aproximadamente de 10 a 2.500 moradores fixos, ou de 10 a 8.000 funcionários. Por ser modular (multiplicação de ETEs), o sistema não possui restrição quanto ao volume a ser tratado. Aplicações:

Caros amigos este post está em construção.Segue as percepções sobre a discussão global da nova educação no VI Encontro Internacional Educarede 2011 em Madri #FT_EIE11 A palestra de abertura foi de Ferran Adrian e seu centro de inovação Vivemos uma crise de valores morais, a saida é a educação global tudo o que é novo é esquisito por natureza.

INSEAD and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO, a specialized agency of the United Nations) co-publish The Global Innovation Index (GII) since 2012. This year in its fifth edition, the GII was previously published by INSEAD. The GII recognizes the key role of innovation as a driver of economic growth and prosperity and acknowledges the need for a broad horizontal vision of innovation that is applicable to both developed and emerging economies, with the inclusion of indicators that go beyond the traditional measures of innovation (such as the level of research and development in a given country). The GII has evolved into a valuable benchmarking tool to facilitate public-private dialogue, whereby policymakers, business leaders and other stakeholders can evaluate progress on a continual basis.

A regra dos três R’s – Reduzir, Reutilizar e Reciclar talvez seja, para a maioria das pessoas, a melhor referência para a prática do consumo consciente . O que muita gente não sabe, porém, é que nessa regra a ordem dos fatores altera – e muito – o resultado atingido . Por que se fala tanto do último dos R’s – Reciclar –, e tão pouco dos dois primeiros? É claro que a prática da reciclagem é muito importante , pois ao enterrarmos em aterros sanitários materiais passíveis de serem reaproveitados no ciclo produtivo, estamos enterrando parte dos recursos naturais finitos que estão disponíveis para nosso consumo.
Oregon Manifest , a nonprofit located in Portland, has been running a competition over the last few months in which students and pro teams work to create a next-generation city bike. This isn’t about speed (like the McLaren Venge ) or concept design (like the Vienna Bike ), but rather about creating a bike that provides the maximum amount of utility for someone looking to ditch their automobile. These innovation-from-competition events are really blowing up; there have been lots lately aimed at creating everything from mega-efficient cars to electrically-powered aircraft . This one had 34 entrants who mostly had some variation of a cargo bike with electric assist, but they all varied in execution. I have to agree with the people’s choice, though, a collaboration between IDEO and Rock Lobster (pictured). You can see the other winners here (I like the campus bike and the two-seater), but the Faraday , as the IDEO-Rock Lobster bike is called, really just hit me right in my future bone.
What is a Social Entrepreneur? Social entrepreneurs drive social innovation and transformation in various fields including education, health, environment and enterprise development. They pursue poverty alleviation goals with entrepreneurial zeal, business methods and the courage to innovate and overcome traditional practices.

A social entrepreneur is a leader or pragmatic visionary who: Achieves large scale, systemic and sustainable social change through a new invention, a different approach, a more rigorous application of known technologies or strategies, or a combination of these.
@casher:Hey buddy,SixthSense ? device is in a concept stage,it is not fully developed.We should appreciate the inventor Pranav who not only developed this but also released as open source.Since it is in an initial or starting stage,pranav and his teams would be on the development side and might be real busy.Some over there in MIT Teams or voluntary documentation team has to be set up to provide documentations and so those people who cannot understand what to do with all the information currently available to them has either wait or learn by themselves,after all invention has already been done ,the oly thing is running it.Do it,make error and do post,people will love to help and also come up with ideas.But some people has lots of question like ....where can i download the code ?(Even though link is out there) etc...I think this being a software engineering project with a new concept,the people should have some knowledge about computer hardwares like connecting devices,running programs.
