AlphaKnowledge : The joy of innocence and complete... AlphaKnowledge: Christopher Donohue: A sweet lesson on patience. This post falls outside of my normal business oriented content. Yet this is a lovely story that should be shared, which falls within my core philosophies: be kind, be loyal, be helpful and contribute. There is so much niceness in the world, but it goes unreported usually. A sweet lesson on patience. A NYC Taxi driver wrote: I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After a long pause, the door opened. By her side was a small nylon suitcase. There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. 'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb. She kept thanking me for my kindness. 'Oh, you're such a good boy, she said. 'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly.. 'Oh, I don't mind,' she said. I looked in the rear-view mirror. 'What route would you like me to take?' For the next two hours, we drove through the city.

Alpha Knowledge: Christopher Donohue: How long will it take to make sustainable change? This is a deviation from my usual type of posts, but the way we treat Earth and the biodiversity is a growing passion and concern of mine. How long will it take for governments, organisations, farmers and individuals to move away from elements that are harmful to our ecosystem? The authors, led by Chensheng (Alex) Lu, associate professor of environmental exposure biology in the Department of Environmental Health (Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH)), writes that the new research provides “convincing evidence” of the link between imidacloprid and CCD.

My question is how long will it take governments and organisations to either ban or limit usage then phase out the offending insecticide. Have you seen great examples of governments or organisations making great, yet swift change that has been beneficial to the environment?

The 10 best home projects on Kickstarter now | Spaces One of the best aspects of being the editor of Yahoo! Homes is learning about new and groundbreaking designs that aren't (yet) household fixtures. I saw lots of them at the Dwell on Design show in June and at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair a month earlier. But design shows aren't the only place to see some of the most inspiring innovations: They're just a few clicks away on Kickstarter. I've rounded up my recent favorites. Here are Yahoo! 1. I've got one word for you: snaps. The creators of Smart Bedding estimate you'll save a month of your life with their Smart Bedding, because the task of making the bed is reduced from 90 seconds to "about two seconds." Now, many readers are probably asking right now: Couldn't I just attach snaps to my own sheets and comforters and save myself some money? But wouldn't it be nice to see this become the new standard in bedding, so you don't have to do it yourself? 2. Admit it. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Kickstarter
