Peter Principle An illustration visualizing the Peter principle The Peter Principle is a concept in management theory in which the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in his or her current role rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence." The principle is named after Laurence J.

Parker - Release Date January 25, 2013 Another box office bomb from hack director Taylor Hackford and failing fledgling movie studio FilmDistrict, (which will ultimately shutter by end of 2014, if not sooner). A thief with a unique code of professional ethics is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew's latest heist. Director Taylor Hackford has had a bouncy 40 year career as a director.
Ice Energy Finds Profits in Thermal Energy Storage Amidst all the batteries, fuel cells, flywheels and other technologies trying to bring energy storage to the building scale, there’s one technology that’s as simple -- well, almost as simple -- as an icebox. Thermal energy storage is its name, and the basic idea has been around since the 1920s. Put a device on your roof that makes ice at night when power’s cheap, then uses that ice during hot days to augment air conditioning operations, and avoid buying expensive peak power.
Hansel And Gretel Witch Hunters Release Date January 25, 2013 In this dark spin on the fairy tale, siblings Hansel and Gretel are a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. Catching up with Hansel and Gretel 15 years after their incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into bounty hunters who hunt witches. Jeremy Renner tries once again to headline a hopeful Hollywood box office blockbuster, of course, also in the requisite 3D. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is one of the worst movies of the past five years, according to Publisher of Wild About Movies, Tim Nasson. He gives the movie a big fat F as a grade. STARRING: Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Peter Stormare, Famke Janssen, Thomas Mann DIRECTED BY: Tommy Wirkola STUDIO: Paramount Pictures RATING: R (For violence, language, adult themes)
The laser-powered bionic eye that gives 576-pixel grayscale vision to the blind After a lot of theorizing, postulating, and non-human trials, it looks like bionic eye implants are finally hitting the market — first in Europe, and hopefully soon in the US. These implants can restore sight to completely blind patients — though only if the blindness is caused by a faulty retina, as in macular degeneration (which millions of old people suffer from), diabetic retinopathy, or other degenerative eye diseases. The first of these implants, Argus II developed by Second Sight, is already available in Europe. For around $115,000, you get a 4-hour operation to install an antenna behind your eye, and a special pair of camera-equipped glasses that send signals to the antenna. The antenna is wired into your retina with around 60 electrodes, creating the equivalent of a 60-pixel display for your brain to interpret. The first users of the Argus II bionic eye report that they can see rough shapes and track the movement of objects, and slowly read large writing.
Die Hard 5 release date, movie poster, trailer, cast The fifth in the 25 year old big screen franchise starring Bruce Willis. Take-no-shit, Yipee-Ki-Yay-Mother-fucker cop John McClane for the first time finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack -- unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes. For once in recent memory a movie studio has made a smart decision; that releasing Die Hard 5, (as they had the previous film in the franchise, Die Hard 4), with a PG-13 rating, would amount to sacrilege to all who are wild about movies.
Black Holes: Incredibly Loud and Extremely Distant This post is the third in a series that accompanies the upcoming publication of my book ‘Gravity’s Engines: How Bubble-Blowing Black Holes Rule Galaxies, Stars, and Life in the Cosmos’ (Scientific American/FSG). In space it’s a good thing that you can’t hear black holes scream. Although some of the most incontrovertible evidence for the existence of supermassive black holes comes from observing their gravitational effect on neighboring stars, there are other even more spectacular clues. The clearest of these were unwittingly seen in extraterrestrial radio signals as far back as the late 1930′s, and then observed with increasing fidelity as better and better technology allowed astronomers to map out the cosmos.
