Ces 20 photos révèlent les attentes de voyage versus la réalité Ces jours-ci, la majorité des gens ne portent pas de verres fumés colorés, ils choisissent plutôt un filtre Instagram. Afficher le texte complet C’est pourquoi voyager est devenu si décevant – où sont ces plages paradisiaques que vous avez vu sur le web? Ce serait mieux si nous pouvions seulement lire à propos de ces lieux exotiques et nous les imaginer; maintenant, ruinée par Instagram, la réalité ne sera plus jamais à la hauteur de vos attentes.

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. 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. Research shows that cutting migration to the level Thomson suggests would cost the federal budget about $600 million in the first year.

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”.

Cellulaire plus meurtrier que l'alcool au volant Québec — Des musulmans canadiens demandent à Ottawa de faire du 29 janvier une journée nationale contre l’islamophobie, comme il a fait du 6 décembre une journée contre la violence faite aux femmes après la tuerie de l’École polytechnique. La requête a été envoyée hier sous la forme d’une lettre au bureau du premier ministre par le Conseil national des musulmans canadiens (CNMC). Elle est appuyée par plus de 80 organisations, dont la Grande Mosquée de Québec, où un attentat a fait six morts le 29 janvier dernier. « Cette date ne doit pas être oubliée. Elle doit faire date. « Ce serait une bonne chose que l’on se souvienne. Dans la lettre envoyée à Justin Trudeau, le Conseil national des musulmans canadiens note que cette journée est d’autant nécessaire qu’il y a « une montée des groupes extrémistes […] qui cherchent à provoquer une division haineuse entre les Canadiens et les citoyens musulmans ». M. Appel à Philippe Couillard « J’espère qu’on n’en fera pas de la politique.

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. 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. En 1984, il part se consacrer à son autre bébé, Canal+, et délègue pendant dix ans l’opérationnel à un directeur général, Jean-Jacques Augier, à qui il demande aussi de "coacher" son fils, qui prend la succession en 1997.

Public push for pet-friendly housing Démocratie, es-tu lasse? | Jean-Simon Gagné | Chroniques Pourcentage des votes obtenus en février 2017 par le président du Turkménistan, Gourbangouly Berdymoukhamedov. En l’absence d’opposition, la mégalomanie du président ne connaît guère de limites. Faut-il évoquer la statue de 21 mètres à son effigie qui a surgi au centre de la capitale? Reste que les dictateurs à l’image de l’ami turkmène se font rares. Quelques années plus tôt, au Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe (photo) avait eu bien du mal à expliquer comment 116 195 électeurs âgés de plus de 100 ans étaient soudain apparus sur les listes électorales, à la veille des élections. (20) Comme le disait si bien l’écrivain anglais Tom Stoppard : «La démocratie, ce n’est pas le vote. À l’époque, une blague se moque de la cruauté extrême du dictateur irakien. Sources :1.

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. Some taxi drivers will commit blatant acts of violence on drivers from the competition. The government will turn a blind eye and in all likelihood the Ministry of the Interior will put forward corporatist measures that favor the interests of the taxi industry, forcing the Ministry of the Economy to fail French entrepreneurs again. France will send yet another deplorable signal to foreign investors, who will look for opportunities elsewhere and leave promising French startups without the funds needed for growth. This transportation battle between the taxi industry and radical innovators is too often seen as pitting the mighty Uber against incumbent players.
