Family Tree Innovación en Estrategia, Creatividad y Tecnología Posted by Toni Mascaró on Domingo, enero 22, 2012 · 1 Comment La innovación es una palabra muy atractiva que ha sido utilizada en muchas ocasiones de forma indebida. También ha servido como argumento para justificar inversiones millonarias o incluso como excusa para realizar espectaculares campañas de publicidad que trataban de maquillar la mediocridad de muchas organizaciones. No me considero un experto en Innovación pero por lo menos sí que puedo considerarme un apasionado en esta materia y trato de aplicar esta actitud en todo lo que me rodea, desde el ámbito personal al profesional. Podríamos decir que me considero un motivador y agitador alrededor de la Innovación. Pero el objetivo de este post es dar un poco más de luz y ayudar aquellas personas u organizaciones que quieren adoptar la Innovación en su día a día. Así también quiero mostrar mi visión sobre este tema y como lo estamos aplicando en eMascaró. Y según Michael Porter Actitud Innovadora: Aptitud innovadora: Innovación aplicada

Millions Of Dollars Worth Of Supercars Meet Up At This New Jersey Coffee Shop Twice A Month Travis Okulski/Business Insider Every other weekend, our local coffee shop clears out the parking lot for one morning and invites a very different clientele: supercar owners. Informal gatherings like this for owners of rare or interesting cars happen across the country every week. Frequently called Cars and Coffee, it is a chance for car guys (and gals) to lose the formality of shows that are full of pristine machinery that arrived on a flatbed or in a trailer. Every car that is at our local gathering in Chatham, NJ, Cars and Croissants, was driven there under its own power; no garage queens here. While it was chilly, we got out for one last show this past weekend and were incredibly impressed.

The 9 nastiest things in your supermarket 1. "Pink slime" The gross factor: The meat industry likes to call it "lean finely textured beef," but after ABC News ran a story on it, the public just called it what it looks like — pink slime, a mixture of waste meat and fatty parts from higher-quality cuts of beef that have had the fat mechanically removed. Afterwards, it's treated with ammonia gas to kill Salmonella and E. coli bacteria. Then it gets added to ground beef as a filler. Eat this instead: Organic ground beef is prohibited from containing pink slime, per National Organic Program standards, so it's your safest bet. 2. The gross factor: Hankering for a burger? Eat this instead: Look for beef from a local grass-fed beef operation that rotates the animals on fresh grass paddocks regularly, and inquire about medicine use. 3. The gross factor: Sugary and calorie-laden, those convenient instant-oatmeal packets all have one thing in common. 4. Eat this instead: Look for domestic shrimp. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
