El poder de la "serendipia".

El poder de la "serendipia". | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Carlos Fosca's insight:

La palabra no existe en el Real Diccionario de la Lengua Española, proviene del neologismo anglosajón Serendipity acuñado por Horace Walpole en 1754 a partir de un cuento tradicional persa llamado "Los tres príncipes de Serendip".

 

Una serendipia es un descubirmiento o un hallazgo afortunado e inesperado que se produce cuando se está buscando otra cosa distinta. La serendipia en el ámbito empresarial "implica actualizar nuestro pensamiento para empezar a comprender el impacto y el valor de la casualidad; abrir la perspectiva y ver una oportunidad donde otros sólo ven problemas".

“Roba pero hace obra”: ¿Por qué los peruanos toleramos la corrupción?

“Roba pero hace obra”: ¿Por qué los peruanos toleramos la corrupción? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
41% de los limeños votaría por un candidato que roba siempre y cuando “haga obra”, reveló una reciente encuesta de Datum que ha causado justificada indignación. El problema es que quienes más se indignan son los que propugnan las políticas públicas que más corrupción generan: el estatismo. En efecto, son los intelectuales de izquierda quienes se han constituido –sobre todo desde la caída del régimen fujimorista– en los más enérgicos abanderados de la lucha anticorrupción, algo que puede hablar bien de ellos si son sinceros, pero que sobre todo habla mal de la derecha conservadora (que no tiene empacho en tolerar el robo al contribuyente, pero sí se escandaliza si alguien habla de legalizar la droga o consolidar las libertades sexuales, que no generan daños a terceros). Pero –sin relativizar un ápice la importancia de los valores morales republicanos que exigen menor tolerancia a la mentira, por ejemplo (SE 1436)–, lo cierto es que las indignadas buenas intenciones izquierdistas de nada

Oldest and Youngest Populations

Oldest and Youngest Populations | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"There are 1.2 billion people between the ages of 15 and 24 in the world today — and that means that many countries have populations younger than ever before.  Some believe that this 'youth bulge' helps fuel social unrest — particularly when combined with high levels of youth unemployment.  Youth unemployment is a 'global time bomb,' as long as today’s millennials remain 'hampered by weak economies, discrimination, and inequality of opportunity.'  The world’s 15 youngest countries are all in Africa.  Of the continent’s 200 million young people, about 75 million are unemployed.

On the flip side, an aging population presents a different set of problems: Japan and Germany are tied for the world’s oldest countries, with median ages of 46.1. Germany’s declining birth rate might mean that its population will decrease by 19 percent, shrinking to 66 million by 2060. An aging population has a huge economic impact: in Germany, it has meant a labor shortage, leaving jobs unfilled."
