Welcome to our annual celebration of business innovators who dare to think differently. They're the ones taking risks and discovering surprising new solutions to old problems. This year, they tell you exactly how they do what they do.
Χάρη σε μια αποσπασματική μετάφραση του άρθρου: "Scientists Now Know: We're Not From Here!", (δυστυχώς δίχως αναφορά στην ανωτέρω πηγή του πρωτότυπου άρθρου του Dan Eden για το Viewzone) μου δίνεται η ευκαιρία να αναφερθώ σε αυτή τη σχετικά πρόσφατη επιστημονική θεώρηση του κόσμου μας, που πάει πίσω στο 1994... και μοιάζει να δίνει νόημα ακόμη και στην λήξη του ημερολογίου των Μάγια...
The best moments at TED have often come from unexpected places. But this year, we’re pushing that to an entirely new level. We’re staging a global talent search to bring together the most remarkable lineup in TED’s history. A series of public auditions in cities around the world will reveal voices, talents and ideas that delight and surprise. As a result, at least half of our TED2013 program will literally be crowd-sourced through what we’re calling the TED2013 Worldwide Auditions.
Public auditions will be happening in 14 countries on six continents — in Amsterdam, Bangalore, Doha, Johannesburg, London, Nairobi, New York, São Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Tokyo, Tunis and Vancouver — between April and June 2012. The auditions will be official TED events, and we’ve tapped local TEDx organizers in each city to produce.
Online audition applications, which include the option to upload a short video, will be available for each city at least two months before the audition. From those submissions, TED will invite 30 of the best applicants to each audition, where speakers will have 3-6 minutes to deliver a proposed talk in English. Anyone – with the exception of those who have already spoken at an official TED Conference or have a talk on TED.com – is eligible to apply to auditions in his or her nearest city. In some exceptional cases, TED will contribute to travel costs.

I’m not sure if we’ll see a universal currency in our lifetime, and if we do it will probably be in a digital form. Either way, hopefully it will be as thoughtful as this design, a literal interpretation of Benjamin Franklin’s famous phrase, “Time is Money.” Each coin and bill in the series represent a universally understood segment of time and serve as a reminder that time really is the most valuable commodity.
Google+ is a lot more fun when you’ve been added into relevant circles.
Sure, it’s great to be added into hundreds of circles because you’ll get more visibility for your posts, but it’s more important (in the long run) to get added into relevant circles by people who care about what you’re posting.
You see, by networking with people who share your interests will lead to more meaningful interactions for you inside Google+.
Here are 8 tips to help you get into relevant circles today . . .
The American Association of Pediatrics recommends that parents permit their kids only one to two hours of "screen time" per day—a limit that includes television, movies, video games, and Internet. Despite that advice, many parents will admit that their children spend much more time “plugged in.” A consortium of European researchers including Simone Kühn, from Belgium’s Ghent University, and Jürgen Gallinat from Germany’s Charité Medicine, wanted to see if frequent video gaming resulted in any particular changes to the brain.
