Într-un orășel din cel mai sărac județ al Europei s-au strâns la protest mai mulți oameni decât în cele mai agitate zile de Piața Universității. Puțină lume din afara Bârladului se aștepta la asta. Televiziunile au ignorat evenimentul până când pe Facebook au început să curgă imagini cu marea de oameni care strigau în fața Primăriei că nu vor să vină americanii să le otrăvească apele.

Ca să se revanșeze, presa a aruncat cu cifre umflate – au fost 5.000 de oameni, 7.000, chiar 10.000! Lumea a reacționat ba exaltat (Revoluția a început la Bârlad!) , ba paranoic (E o manevră murdară pusă la cale de x sau y). Ce s-a întâmplat la Bârlad?! Joi la amiază, pe strada principală prăfuită și plină de gropi abia dacă vezi câțiva oameni moleșiți de soare, târâind câte-o sacoșă. Acum câteva luni, Bârladul s-a trezit că e în prima linie a războiului mondial pentru resurse de energie. Două marșuri pornesc din capetele străzii principale, urmând să se întâlnească în fața primăriei. 1:35 The Pomodoro Technique® What is The Pomodoro Technique? EASY for anyone to use! Improves productivity IMMEDIATELY! FUN to do! Why Pomodoro? The Pomodoro Technique isn’t like any other time-management method on the market today.

For many people, time is an enemy.

Whether it’s a call, a Facebook message, or suddenly realizing you need to change the oil in your car, many distracting thoughts and events come up when you’re at work. Most of us are intimately acquainted with the guilt that comes from procrastinating. Who does the technique work for? These are all ways real folks use the Pomodoro Technique: Motivate yourself to write.Limit distractions.Keep track of how long you’re spending brainstorming / writing / revising.Reduce back and neck pain by walking around during Pomodoro breaks.Draft a book in three weeks.

Fundatia Estuar, cu activitate in domeniul sanatatii mintale, lanseaza www.faraeticheta.org, prima platforma online de locuri de munca dedicate persoanelor cu dizabilitati.

Persoanele aflate in cautarea unui loc de munca isi pot incarca CV-ul pe platforma si pot primi consiliere gratuita, iar angajatorii pot posta posturile disponibile din cadrul companiilor pe care le reprezinta. Conform statisticilor, aproximativ una din sase persoane din populatia apta de munca a Europei a declarat o problema de sanatate de lunga durata sau o dizabilitate. Rata de angajare a persoanelor cu dizabilitati in UE este de aproximativ 50% in comparatie cu 68% pentru restul populatiei. Persoanele cu dizabilitati sunt mai predispuse la excluderea sociala si economica decat celelalte grupuri dezavantajate. Posibilitatea acestor persoane de a gasi un loc de munca este foarte redusa, deoarece angajatorii nu sunt pregatiti pentru a primi si a acorda suport acestei categorii de oameni. 2:18 Episode 92: Passion For Your Work is Overrated. 0:11 Innovation: How the Creative Stay Creative -- How to Inspire Creativity -- Tips for Innovation.

A carbon footprint has historically been defined by Championne as "the total sets of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an organization, event, product or person. "[1] The total carbon footprint cannot be calculated because of the large amount of data required and the fact that carbon dioxide can be produced by natural occurrences. It is for this reason that Wright, Kemp, and Williams, writing in the journal Carbon Management, have suggested a more practicable definition: "A measure of the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) emissions of a defined population, system or activity, considering all relevant sources, sinks and storage within the spatial and temporal boundary of the population, system or activity of interest.

Article, Page 5. The first time Eric Smith laid eyes on Tom Szaky, in April 2005, he felt a shiver of panic. Oh, my God, Smith thought. What have I gotten myself into? There they were, about to meet with Home Depot's global product merchant, John Fuller, a guy who could make or break a young company with a simple yes or no, and Szaky, the founder and CEO of TerraCycle, all of 23 years old at the time, shows up looking as if he's just rolled out of bed after a night of heavy partying--rumpled, unshaven, and dressed in jeans, a sports jacket, a shirt with no collar, and a John Deere baseball cap. This was not what Smith had bargained on.

The director of sales for Philips Lighting, he had set up the meeting as a favor to his former boss and mentor at SC Johnson. Granted, on the telephone Szaky had sounded young, but never did Smith imagine that he'd be walking into the meeting with Ferris Bueller on his day off. "Look," Smith said. "I didn't print out a copy," Szaky said. Smith had reason to be concerned. 0:01 Apartment Therapy | Saving the world, one room at a time. 1:02 Benefit corporation. A benefit corporation or B corporation is a corporate form in the United States designed for for-profit entities that want to consider society and the environment in addition to profit in their decision making process. Benefit corporations differ from traditional corporations in regards to their purpose, accountability and transparency. The purpose of a benefit corporation is to create general public benefit, which is defined as a material positive impact on society and the environment.

A benefit corporation’s directors operate the business with the same authority as in a traditional corporation, but where in a traditional corporation shareholders with proper standing judge the company's financial performance, here they judge qualitative performance based on the benefit corporation's stated goals. Shareholders in a benefit corporation determine if the benefit corporation has achieved a material positive impact. History[edit] Benefit corporations and corporations contrasted in law[edit] 1:02 Social enterprise. Many commercial enterprises would consider themselves to have social objectives, but commitment to these objectives is motivated by the perception that such commitment will ultimately make the enterprise more financially valuable.

Social enterprises differ in that, inversely, they do not aim to offer any benefit to their investors, except where they believe that doing so will ultimately further their capacity to realize their social and environmental goals. The term has a mixed and contested heritage due to its philanthropic roots in the United States, and cooperative roots in the United Kingdom, European Union and Asia.[3] In the US, the term is associated with 'doing charity by doing trade', rather than 'doing charity while doing trade'.

History and philosophy[edit] Social enterprises are often regarded - erroneously - as non-profit organisations. Social enterprise is characterized by open membership and goals widely considered to be in the community or public interest. Canada[edit] 4:42 Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Mission Statement The driving force behind a company formation and the innovation process is the entrepreneurial act. These dynamic activities are, from a single-economies point of view of great importance. New ideas by emerging companies can be implemented very effectively but also existing companies are challenged to rediscover their worth through innovation to ensure being competitive internationally. The goal of our teaching is to present the students with first-class knowledge in the areas entrepreneurship and innovation.

We orientate ourselves towards leading international universities and business schools. In our course we convey theories, methods and scientific findings. We do not however stop at knowledge communication but shape the student’s entrepreneurial way of thinking and acting with real innovation and founding- projects. With their entrepreneurial profile these students are qualified for a number of career options, the most obvious being establishing ones own business.

2:36 Eligibility « good.bee Holding. People on low incomes have a hard time getting financial services from the banks. This is true the world over. In Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) there is a particular problem of social and financial exclusion due to limited access to banking services. This affects small-scale entrepreneurs, such as farmers and shopkeepers, as well as the social enterprise sector which adopts a business approach to tackle social problems. As a joint venture, ERSTE Foundation and Erste Group launched good.bee in 2008, with the Foundation holding a 40% stake. good.bee’s main areas of business are microbanking and social enterprise finance. It makes financial services more accessible to previously ‘underbanked’ individuals and businesses in CEE. This commitment to banking the many, not the few, is in our very DNA: founded in 1819, the first Austrian savings bank, ERSTE Oesterreichische Spar-Casse, served mainly craftsmen and industrial workers.

2:21 dan vezentan. 0:02 Ken Robinson On The Principles Of Creative Leadership. Sir Ken Robinson is among the world's elite thinkers when it comes to creativity and innovation. The author of Out of Minds: Learning to be Creative, a 10th anniversary edition of which was published in March, and The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, Robinson has dedicated much of his professional life to helping governments, educational systems and businesses understand that creativity is not a fanciful luxury. "Creativity is not some exotic, optional extra. It's a strategic issue," said Robinson while in Cannes where he was invited to speak about the necessity for creativity in innovation. "So what people are faced with is having to think very different about how to run organizations. " Here Robinson talks about making creativity a priority, his disdain for the term creative industries, leadership from the middle, and why in times of economic crisis creativity is an urgent imperative.

April 2001, rev. April 2003 (This article is derived from a talk given at the 2001 Franz Developer Symposium.) In the summer of 1995, my friend Robert Morris and I started a startup called Viaweb.

Our plan was to write software that would let end users build online stores. A lot of people could have been having this idea at the same time, of course, but as far as I know, Viaweb was the first Web-based application. Another unusual thing about this software was that it was written primarily in a programming language called Lisp. The Secret Weapon Eric Raymond has written an essay called "How to Become a Hacker," and in it, among other things, he tells would-be hackers what languages they should learn. Lisp is worth learning for the profound enlightenment experience you will have when you finally get it; that experience will make you a better programmer for the rest of your days, even if you never actually use Lisp itself a lot.

This is the same argument you tend to hear for learning Latin. 1:15 Website Builder | Create a Free Website with Wix.com. 0:00 U T S U M I - Crafts with PET. 1:08 10 Clever Architectural Creations Using Cargo Containers: Shipping Container Homes and Offices. Cargo Architecture: 10 Shipping Container Homes & Offices Article by Urbanist, filed under Offices & Commercial in the Architecture category.

With the green theme growing in popularity across every stretch of the world, more and more people are turning to cargo container homes for green alternatives for office, and even new home, construction. There are countless numbers of empty, unused shipping containers around the world just sitting on the shipping docks and taking up space. The reason for this is that it’s too expensive for a country to ship empty containers back to the their origin in most cases, it’s just cheaper to buy new containers from Asia. The result is an extremely high surplus of empty shipping containers that are just waiting to become someone’s home or office. There are plenty of benefits of to the so-called shipping container architecture model. The world’s first hotel built from recycled shipping containers has popped-up in Uxbridge, West London. 1:07 Entertainment & the Arts | One man's treasure-from-trash is a Centralia tourist attraction. 1:07 Extraordinary Art from Ordinary Objects.
