Mary Robinson - Reflections about Respects Business Leaders Initiative BLICC and BLIHR. BLIHR-4-Final-report.pdf. Moderne ledelse er livsfarlig - Djøfbladet. Moderne ledelse er skræmmende effektiv til at gøre os sindssygt motiverede. Men ikke til at gøre os bedre til at løse vores opgaver. For den psykologiserer. Det vil sige, at den gør vores egen indre tilstand til forklaringen på stress, pres og fiasko. Og så stiller vi ikke længere spørgsmålstegn ved ledelsens måde at lede på.

Eller ved de ressourcer, vi har til at løse opgaven. Det er den uhyggelige slagside ved den tilsyneladende demokratiske ledelsesform, der hersker i de moderne kontorer. I hvert fald ifølge ledelsesrådgiver Christian Ørsteds nye bog ’Livsfarlig ledelse – forstå de psykologiske mekanismer, der styrer dit arbejdsliv’. Målrettet den højtuddannede videnmedarbejder Bogen er et opgør med performancekulturen og de falskt flade magtstrukturer, hvor lederen er mere ’ven’ end chef, som i stedet for klare beskeder og faglig sparring coacher deres medarbejdere.

Selv understreger bogens forfatter Christian Ørsted, at titlen er ’livsfarlig ledelse’ – ikke ’livsfarlige ledere’. Moderne ledelse er livsfarlig - Djøfbladet. Bradley Manning trial: 10 revelations from Wikileaks documents on Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Europe. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, center, is escorted as he leaves a military court at Fort Meade, Md., on Monday. Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images In 2010, Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was detained in Iraq on suspicion of passing classified U.S. government documents to WikiLeaks. On Monday, after more than three years in military jail, his trial finally began at Fort Meade, Md. The 25-year-old intelligence analyst admitted earlier this year to passing documents to the whistle-blowing website, though he denies the charge of “aiding the enemy,” an offense that carries a life sentence or the death penalty.

Below is a list of 10 revelations disclosed by Manning’s leaked documents that offer insight into the breadth and scope of what he revealed, help explain his motivation for leaking, and provide context for the ongoing trial. Manning’s trial is expected to last through the summer. Edward Snowden: the whistleblower behind the NSA surveillance revelations. The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.

Edward Snowden: the whistleblower behind the NSA surveillance revelations

Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell. The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. "I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong," he said. Snowden will go down in history as one of America's most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. Despite his determination to be publicly unveiled, he repeatedly insisted that he wants to avoid the media spotlight.

A matter of principle.

För fria fackliga organisationer globalt. The Story of Human Rights. Global Population Of 10 Billion By 2100? – Not So Fast. With urbanization and education, global fertility rates could dip below replacement level by 2100 NEW YORK: By UN calculations, on October 31, the world’s population will hit 7 billion, twice the total 44 years ago and triple the population 66 years ago.

Global Population Of 10 Billion By 2100? – Not So Fast

As the costs and benefits of this historic demographic milestone are debated in scientific journals and the popular media, a central question is in the minds of many: Will world population double or triple again, or could it peak in the near future and even decline? The state of the world will depend largely on the answer to this question. Barring a cataclysmic global mortality disaster decimating humanity, world population depends largely on fertility in the coming decades. If women on average have slightly more than two children, then the world population eventually stabilizes. One possible scenario – unlikely, yet instructive – is the fertility rates of countries remaining unchanged at current levels. Här finns världens befolkning.
