Going Green at the Great Park: Solar Decathlon 2013

Going Green at the Great Park: Solar Decathlon 2013 | Managing the Transition | Scoop.it

For the first time since its inception in 2002, the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon is being held at a location other than the mall in Washington D.C.

The competition challenges collegiate teams to 'design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive', and the twenty projects featured this year do just that by showcasing innovative green building technologies, products and strategies that visitors can incorporate into their own homes.

Zan Chandler's curator insight, September 30, 2013 2:55 PM

Sir Ken Robinson makes some interesting and sometimes controversial pronouncements about the broader education system, including the so-called ADHD epidemic in the US, education systems being based on a factory production model and how children's divergent thinking and capacity for creativity is eroded as they become more educated.

 

If the education system we know today sprang from the enlightenment and industrial age, what shape will our future education system take? How will the information age reshape what we think of as education?

La bio-économie, du passé au futur - Prospective 2100 - 2 octobre 2013 17h30 - aux Mines ParisTech 60 bld St Michel 75006 Paris | Managing the Transition | Scoop.it

"Après deux siècles de règne sans partage des ressources et des énergies fossiles dans les pays riches, nous devons faire face, pour les prochaines décennies, à un contexte nouveau et à des défis sans précédents: croissance de la population mondiale; réchauffement climatique ; épuisement des réserves d’hydrocarbures ; disponibilités en eau et en terres ; suffisance alimentaire …


Il apparaît alors singulièrement que, dans un tel contexte, une mise en valeur efficace et durable des forêts et des terres agricoles, avec la performance et la diversification, en aval, de leurs filières et de leurs produits, sont en facteur commun de beaucoup des solutions qui sont envisageables pour prévenir et pallier, au moins en partie, le tarissement annoncé du carbone fossile, pour limiter le réchauffement climatique et pour faire face aux besoins fondamentaux de nos sociétés."

Abrupt rise of new machine ecology beyond human response time

Society's techno-social systems are becoming ever faster and more computer-orientated. However, far from simply generating faster versions of existing behaviour, we show that this speed-up can generate a new behavioural regime as humans lose the ability to intervene in real time. Analyzing millisecond-scale data for the world's largest and most powerful techno-social system, the global financial market, we uncover an abrupt transition to a new all-machine phase characterized by large numbers of subsecond extreme events. The proliferation of these subsecond events shows an intriguing correlation with the onset of the system-wide financial collapse in 2008. Our findings are consistent with an emerging ecology of competitive machines featuring ‘crowds’ of predatory algorithms, and highlight the need for a new scientific theory of subsecond financial phenomena.

Does telling a story and allowing prospects to handle a product increase sales? And does doing so also mean people will pay more? Yes on both counts. Relying on email isn't going to work so well.


Read this fascinating study (not boring or academic) to understand why. Then go make appointments with prospects armed with stories, visuals, and some sort of experiential demo. Yes, even for services!!

Amazing impact of auditory influence when combined with price.  It provides a whole new twist on sales training and how to potentially improve gross margins.

Yes, Terri, it does! I was really surprised by the findings and enjoyed reading it. I hope people can really apply this to increase their sales.

La résilience des entreprises et des sociétés naît des différences! L'Europe ne sera pas forte en se protégeant de la diversité, mais au contraire, en relevant le défi d'une construction collective qui s'appuie sur les différences. Et pour être efficaces, ces différences ne doivent pas être acquises, mais innées : celui qui n'est pas né ici vient nous apporter la richesse de ce que nous ne sommes pas...

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 24, 2013 11:41 AM

Thanks for the great curation Maria Rachelle.  Starting with my mother, some of the most influential leadership mentors I have had are women.   This research makes a lot of sense to me!

 

Especially the following section:

 

Empathy Is Innovation. While leaders spend considerable time and effort trying to envision markets and pushing out innovation, empathy can often generate simple, yet breakthrough ideas. In her years working as an advocate for charities in Britain and abroad, Anna Pearson noticed a pattern: there were many people who wanted to volunteer — but were too busy (or had schedules too varied) to commit to a cause.

 

To bridge the gap between what volunteers could give and what people need, Anna re-imagined volunteering on a very small scale. Her London-based non-profit Spots of Time connects organizations with people who can give an hour or so at a time, and often at a moment’s notice. The lesson? Anna trained her empathy not just on beneficiaries of charity but also on volunteers. That kindness and sensitivity to others was the catalyst for creativity.
