Low Risk, High Reward: Why Venture Capital Thrives in the Digital World — Welcome to TheFamily William Janeway’s book, Doing Capitalism in the Innovation Economy, is the Bible when it comes to understanding the digital economy and how it is financed. Of particular interest is an idea about the risks investors are willing to take. Venture capital exists in the digital economy not because it is riskier, but because it is in fact less risky than other parts of the economy when it comes to research and development. Venture capitalists are willing to finance radically innovative companies not because they’ve suddenly embraced the idea of risking everything, but because some traditional risks were eliminated forever by various public and private investments, notably in the technological platform that is the Internet. Technology, really? Contrary to what is widely assumed, technology is not an issue for a digital startup — at least not in its early stages. the Internet itself is a technological infrastructure. As a result, the very word “technology” has become a misnomer. Key takeaway
At The Front Line Of Translational Research And Psychiatry Profile – Julio Lucinio Population Growth | Environmental Damage Australia can cope with population growth. We just need smart planning. My colleague Kelvin Thomson recently issued a "14-point plan for population reform" in which he argued that Australia's environment and infrastructure cannot cope with a population of 35 million by the year 2050, which has been forecast by Treasury. Thomson suggested a cut to the skilled migration intake and a freeze on the family reunion intake (while increasing our refugee intake). Although I agree that concerns about environment and infrastructure are legitimate reasons for questioning population growth, I believe such concerns can be mitigated. Minimal growth should not be our aim. Continued high population growth is an almost uniquely Australian issue. At the turn of the millennium, it seemed Australia might be going down the same path. However, in recent years the trends have reversed. I do not accept that population growth and protecting our environment are incompatible.
Will landlords be forced to accept pets? One company is seeking a law change which would compel landlords and property managers to accept pets in rental properties, something some owners are already doing without their PMs’ knowledge. The annual PETstock Pet Parent Survey interviewed more than 900 pet owners Australia-wide and found around 54 per cent of pet owners believed landlords and property managers should be compelled to allow pets. The survey revealed that while a handful of owners – 8 per cent – admitted their pets had damaged a rental home, 30 per cent ‘strongly agreed’ that landlords should be compelled to accept pets and 24 per cent ‘agreed’. Only 1.5 per cent ‘strongly disagreed’ with the need to change the law. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2.16 million renting families are pet owners, but PETstock has concerns landlords are “reluctant to advertise a property as allowing pets” and many renters fear “they won’t be allowed or [will] have their applications rejected”.

Talking Point: Mental health starts in childhood Children are best not left alone to deal with their mental health issues. Picture: GETTY Source: Getty Images FOR many people in the community, mental health is not readily associated with young children. But good mental health in early childhood lays the foundation for positive mental health and wellbeing now and into the future. Being mentally healthy is vital for learning and for leading a happy, rewarding life. Keeping children healthy and happy involves looking after their mental health as well as their physical health. The ancient Romans said “Mens sana in corpore sano”, which means a healthy mind in a healthy body. And that is critical for children — influencing how children feel about themselves, what they do, what they think, and how they relate to others. Good mental health helps children form positive relationships with others, cope with the ups and downs of life, and generally enjoy their world. Evidence also suggests half of all mental health problems begin before the age of 14.
Derrière la colère des taxis, le système Rousselet Vendredi 6 février, dans un restaurant près de la place de la Bourse, à Paris, Nicolas Rousselet, souriant mais méfiant, a apporté force graphiques et documents. "De toute façon, quoi que je dise, il est devenu à la mode de descendre les taxis !" s’agace-t-il. Ce patron discret de 49 ans dirige le Groupe G7, une affaire familiale bâtie par son père André. Il est intarissable sur l’excellence de ses voitures haut de gamme, avec réseau wi-fi et 4G, mais il se montre beaucoup plus fuyant à propos de son quasi-monopole sur la réservation de taxis à Paris ou le taux de rentabilité extravagant de cette activité. Son système bien huilé et très opaque fonctionne au détriment des Parisiens, de l’emploi, et même, in fine, du métier de chauffeur de taxi. Acquisition secrète Flash-back : quand, en 1981, André Rousselet devient directeur de cabinet du président François Mitterrand, il possède déjà la compagnie G7, développée à partir d’une filiale déficitaire de 150 taxis, reprise en 1960 à Simca.

Public push for pet-friendly housing My Site The latest issue of Always Learning magazine includes the article Working memory and its relationship to learning. In this article, Mimma Mason describes what working memory is and how poor working memory can neagatively impact learning. But it's not all bad news - teaching techniques can help manage working memory issues and training can improve working memory. Read the article online now, then read on to find out how working memory can be improved with Cogmed Working Memory training. Cogmed Working Memory Training is an evidence-based cognitive training program developed by the same neuroscience research team at the Karolinska Institute that established the plasticity of working memory. Since their early work, the effectiveness of Cogmed working memory training has been supported by over 45 studies, in a variety of populations, and by independent researchers, the majority with no affiliation to Cogmed or Pearson. “I’m hearing, looking and remembering now”
Taxi Strike Redux: Is France Failing its Entrepreneurs? — Welcome to TheFamily Urban transportation is a case in point. Next Tuesday (January 26, 2015), French taxi drivers will go on strike to protest the exponential development of private hire services powered by technology. As happened last June, they will paralyse the French capital and make life difficult for tourists. This transportation battle between the taxi industry and radical innovators is too often seen as pitting the mighty Uber against incumbent players. This is also not simply a question of forcing entrepreneurs to comply with regulations. These are intimidatory practices typical of a repressive government, and they’re occurring in France where no judge has ever decided that models such as Heetch’s are illegal under French law. Maintaining order is an obligation of the state.

Land-Use Planning - river, effects, important, system, source, effect, human Land and water resources are essential for farming, grazing, forestry, wildlife, tourism, urban development, transport infrastructure, and other environmental functions. The increasing demand for land, coupled with a limitation in its supplies, is a major cause for more conflicts over land use throughout the world. The Watershed Perspective Each type of land use has a varying effect on the hydrologic cycle , thereby affecting the people and the natural resources on a landscape. A watershed perspective can be used to scientifically study the effect of land uses on water and downstream ecosystems . A watershed acts as a receiver, collector, and conveyer of precipitation on a landscape. Impacts and Benefits of Land Uses Natural vegetation, such as forest cover, is usually the most benign of land uses, with higher infiltration and reduced runoff rates. Farmland continues to be lost to nonagricultural uses as population and development pressures increase. Benefits. Levels and Process.
