The Contemporary Space for the Contemporary Researcher

The Contemporary Space for the Contemporary Researcher | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it

Filipinas Heritage Library is a special library dedicated to books and other materials authored by Filipinos or about the Philippines, with a focus on history and culture. For the past 16 years, it was housed at the Nielsen Tower on the corner of Ayala and Makati Avenues. But in keeping with its pursuit of scholarship and access, it has reopened at its new location at the Ayala Museum. It’s turned a new leaf, so to speak, now establishing itself as ‘a contemporary space for the contemporary researcher.’

Want To Get Promoted? Be A Narcissist

Want To Get Promoted? Be A Narcissist | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
If you think you're better than everyone else, studies show that you're more likely to end up ordering around everybody else.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

group dynamics -  "

Harvard Medical School clinical psychologist Craig Malkin dropped some knowledgeon how to sniff out the narcissist in your midst. While narcissists go by many other names, their tendencies include:

1. INSECURITIES GET PROJECTED NONSTOP - They play hot potato with their sense of smallness, Malkin says. "Narcissists say and do things, subtle or obvious, that make you feel less smart, less accomplished, less competent," he says. "It's as if they're saying, 'I don't want to feel this insecure and small; here, you take the feelings.'"2. EMOTIONS GET HATED ON - Feelings mean you can be touched by friends, colleagues, partners. But to be touched is to be influenced and to be influenced is to have your perfect autonomy undermined--which narcissists hate.3. AND CONTROL IS ALWAYS NEEDED - Narcissists also hate to feel like other people's preferences impact them, since then they're not "fully independent." So rather than express their needs, they maneuver people to suit them.

Yummy money: how the Young Urban Male is set to save the global economy

Yummy money: how the Young Urban Male is set to save the global economy | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Meet the new saviour of the global economy. He has made a ton of cash from the emerging markets and he is not ashamed to spend it… on himself. He spends an inordinate amount of time browsing Mr Porter and Matches.com on his iPad. He never leaves the house without being Instagram-ready in JW Anderson, McQ and Louboutin footwear. He keeps his eyebrows well plucked, his nails well polished and he is most likely on a juice cleanse.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Yummy - " . . .the Yummy, or the Young Urban Male. According to the market analysts at HSBC, this bling-hungry international roustabout is to the 2010s what Yuppie (the young urban professional) was to the Eighties.  -   The fashion industry has been celebrating the rise of male spending for some years now. “Men are the new women” has become a common refrain of the “Menaissance”, which has shifted focus away from the traditional women’s shows.

However, according to the HSBC report, The Rise of the Yummy, we should all be pleased about this new chap. It is his vanity that is restoring global spending, reinflating the emerging markets and reinforcing London’s status as the world shopping capital.

And while the “M” is supposed to stand for “male”, it could just as easily stand for “metrosexual”, for that cliché from 20 years ago is now becoming a commercial reality. The report homes in on affluent young men in Japan and South Korea as the world’s most avid consumers of manbags and guyliner. However, it also points to new money in China. While globally, men only account for 40 per cent of luxury sales, in China, they account for 55 per cent.

What’s more, there is a steady supply of young male millionaires. “And they are getting younger,” says HSBC"

When Youth is Wasted on the Young: The Global Crisis of Youth Unemployment

When Youth is Wasted on the Young: The Global Crisis of Youth Unemployment | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

NEETs =  not in education employment or training

"According to estimates from the International Labour Organization, around 74.5 million young people (i.e. persons between 15 and 24 years of age) were unemployed in 2013. With around 13.1 per cent, the unemployment rate among young people is almost three times that of the adult unemployment rate. Worst hit regions are the Middle East and North Africa, parts of South America and the Caribbean, and Southern Europe. Despite the diverse economic structures in different regions of the world, the employment situation of young people has aggravated problems practically everywhere else, too. The problem becomes even bigger when looking at the so-called NEETs (not in education, employment or training), who are estimated to comprise around 300 million people in the world.

cybercrine - Cybercrime is the second most common type of fraud reported by financial firms, more than double the level across other industries, as criminals turn increasingly to technology as their main weapon against banks, a survey showed.

GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

cybercrime -  Some 45% of financial firms were victims of fraud last year, PwC's 2014 global economic crime survey showed. The survey, based on responses from 1,330 companies in 79 countries, showed theft was responsible for the highest share of economic crime, followed by cybercrime, money laundering, accounting fraud and bribery and corruption.

Colleges Should Teach Religion to Their Students / TheAtlantic.com

Colleges Should Teach Religion to Their Students  /  TheAtlantic.com | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
When students feel adrift, spiritual guidance might help.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

religion, when feeling 'adrift' :

" . . .  all religions, if seriously practiced, do precisely what this “religion” had done for me: They teach you how to live. It is true, of course, that clerics often tell their flocks to believe things that are frankly unbelievable. And some even tell the faithful that if they don’t believe these incredible things they will suffer some harsh penalty, like going to hell. But most clerics of my acquaintance are not very interested in fire and brimstone. Rather, they are interested in making sure those in their care are spiritually fit. The way they do this—and, so far as I know, always have—is to give people a higher purpose and a set of guidelines necessary to pursue that purpose. They bring order to the thoughts and actions of people whose thoughts and actions are naturally disordered. They give people a way of life.  -   It was in this way that I became convinced that college classes in religious practice might help suffering undergraduates learn to live successfully. The classes would at the very least introduce undergraduates to the idea that there were practical ways to alleviate their suffering. They would plant the seed. Even if the students chose not to follow the practice they had learned, their recollection of it would remain in store for the day they would need it. "

Good read form Cindy Howson (@BIScorecard) on BI trends. However, it somewhat shows that BI is facing an innovation crisis : a latercomer in the cloud struggling to reach our mobile devices and to get closer to the lines of businesses with a controlled and wide adoption of data discovery. CIOs urgently need to accelerate on their BI strategy, otherwise they will continue to see BI on the top of their priority list year after year. The good news, as the post shows, is that the technology is ready as an enabler.

South Africa’s own Silicon Valley?

South Africa’s own Silicon Valley? | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Braamfontein is poised for a high tech revolution.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Braamfontein tech hubs - "

The Joburg Centre for Software engineering (JSCE) at the University of Witwatersrand is driving the transformation of Braamfontein into a cutting edge technology precinct.

The idea of the tech hubs is to establish co-working spaces which will offer skills development opportunities, software and hardware design.

“People can come to create and collaborate in technology innovations. Coming out of those collaborations are ideas for new businesses and startups. The tech hubs will also run technology courses and events,” JSCE director Professor Barry Dwolatzky told Moneyweb.

JSCE plans to repurpose existing buildings that are owned by the University of Witwatersrand to host the tech hubs to save costs and “show what can be done with inner city Joburg buildings”.

Braamfontein’s location is favourable to play host, as it is at the heart of the economy and in close proximity to tertiary institutions such as the University of Johannesburg and University of Witwatersrand.

Is Your Board Clueless About Your Top Team?

Is Your Board Clueless About Your Top Team? | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
A recent report from The Conference Board and Stanford Business School suggests that the time is right for asking this question.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

boards, team work : ". . . help their boards gain a stronger grasp of their top teams. Here they are: 


  • 1. Create a talent development program with board involvement. "The development of promising employees should not end with their promotion to a senior management level. As leader of the organization, the CEO has the responsibility to create and implement a development program for direct reports, and the board should ensure that this work is carried out," notes the summary on the Stanford GSB site.
  • 2. Connect talent development with succession. "The talent development program should be formally connected to the CEO succession process, and the progress of individual executives should be reviewed in the context of their potential to assume the CEO position." 
  • 3. Play an active role. "While the CEO is ultimately responsible for the development of his or her direct reports, directors should move beyond interacting with executives 'when circumstances warrant.' They can volunteer to serve as informal mentors or advisors and, with the approval of the CEO, meet periodically with executives in the context of their everyday work environment." 
  • 4. Measure and reward progress. "Companies' succession plans and talent development programs should be benchmarked against those of industry peers. Further, the CEO should be held accountable for the development of his or her direct reports, with talent development included as a key performance indicator (KPI) for his or her executive compensation program."

The Business Case for Paying Service Workers More  / TheAtlanticcities.com | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
MIT's Zeynep Ton explains the theory behind the Good Jobs Strategy.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Richard Florida interviews Zeynep Ton- "Too many service companies — and too many Americans, for that matter — buy into the line of thinking that the only way for restaurants, retail, and other service companies to profit is to pay the lowest possible wages. As she explains, “in service industries, succeeding at the expense of employees and at the expense of customers often go together.”

But it doesn’t have to be that way. The world’s leading high-performance manufacturing companies already pay their workers more in return for tapping their knowledge and ideas to improve processes. Ton shows that even in supposedly low-skill service sector work, higher wages are the key to greater employee engagement, better customer service, higher productivity, and a better bottom line."

How can you use the latest discoveries in brain science to improve your life? Here are some techniques.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

train your brain - " Lower your stress level by managing your thoughts -  There is ample research proving that your brain cannot tell the difference between a real and imagined threat; the physical response is the same. In  Mystic Cool: A Proven Approach to Transcend Stress, Achieve Optimal Brain Function, and Maximize Your Creative Intelligence, Don Joseph Goewey provides a powerful tool—called the Clear Button—to thwart fearful thoughts and stop the escalating stress. This 10-second strategy works because it creates a distraction from the primitive brain where fear resides. Care to test it out? Follow these steps.

  1. Imagine that there is a button in the center of your left palm; imagine that this button, when pressed, will send a signal to your brain to stop the fearful thinking.
  2. Press the button with your right hand as you become aware of your breath.
  3. Take three easy breaths counting them out.
  4. Imagine a different color for each number.
  5. As you exhale, relax in the present moment.

Parker J. Palmer, founder of the Center for Courage and Renewal once said, “Science requires an engagement with the world, a live encounter between the knower and the known.” In other words, knowing is not enough. We do ourselves and others a great disservice when we don’t decide to act on the gift of knowledge. It’s the difference between hording information and developing wisdom.

Psychology of Space: What Should Business Look, Smell and Feel Like?

Psychology of Space: What Should Business Look, Smell and Feel Like? | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
How does your workplace feel to you? The spaces we occupy shape who we are and and how we behave, which directly influences our psychological well-being and creative performance -- and the success of business.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Recently, Google released its plans for a new London headquarters, set to open in 2016, which will occupy a space of one million square feet and house an outdoor swimming pool, a full-length indoor football field, a climbing wall and a roof garden — showing that the search engine giant takes its spaces seriously.

Googlers will have all their recreation needs met at work. They’ll be able to ride their bicycles into the building’s bike storage room, take a shower in the on-site facilities and ride around the building on micro-scooters. There will also be plenty of wide open space to use for networking and collaborating with others, in addition to the open-plan desk space to work autonomously.

The new Google space will provide more flexibility and room for relaxation and enjoyment — a way to create contented and happy employees who will perform better and stick with the company longer.

Creating a cultural hearth drives connection

Handbag economics: The ideology of austerity

from Mary Mellor Handbag economics is the common sense of our age.  Public sectors are like households, they must live within their means, balance their books, cut their coat according to their clo...
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Economics - "

According to handbag economics there is only one breadwinner in the economy, the private sector. Only the private sector can determine the size of the public household budget. In this gendered analogy, the public-housewife must not ask for more house-keeping, or borrow more, to make ends meet. Most emphatically, the public-housewife must not set up a printing press in the back room to create her own money.

There is a shed, though, at the end of the garden beyond her reach.  This shed has a printing press and every time the private sector-breadwinner runs out of funds he asks the gardener-central banker to crank it up. Despite this, handbag economics denies that the public household should have any access to this money, even though it has a monopoly on producing coin and its garden shed has the monopoly on producing banknotes. Handbag economics, in any case, has its own money supply, debt.

New money as debt is created through the banking system. Anyone with half an idea can ask to have new numbers credited to their bank account on which they can draw. Preferably though, it should be a big idea like betting on the value of sterling, buying a chemist chain, or smaller bets like buying a football club. Mortgages are another great way to increase money supply through debt, particularly if prices are rising and houses are changing hands quickly
