Daniel Watson's curator insight, June 12, 7:59 AM

    

Many small business owners don't see themselves as entrepreneurs, but If they are to grow and develop their businesses, they need to think and at times act as entrepreneurs.


When a small business owner opens themselves up to considering themselves as being entrepreneurial, they also open the doors to taking on advice aimed at entrepreneurs, advice they may previously have ignored.


This excellent article, written by an experienced successful entrepreneur, offers 17 tips any small business owner can take on board and apply to help their business to grow successfully.

Alain Theriault MBA's curator insight, June 18, 3:42 PM

many good tips in there, but for me
# 3 as feedback, nothing more
# 12 for being productive instead of busy
#16 for the sense of purpose that will carry you through...

are the ones that usually require more  "work"

I'm often being asked "how do I learn to think more strategically?'. Some great tips in this article.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 30, 6:32 PM
(This one is a gem) 7.  Set aside time for forward thinking

My never-ending daily task list can distract me from putting focus on forward thinking. I know I need to dedicate at least one day each month to planning ahead. By simply scheduling this personal appointment for yourself, you’ll be impressed with how many new ideas you can create. Try setting up time during this specified day to meet with your team or others outside of your team to brainstorm even greater ideas for both the short and long-term.

4twenty2's curator insight, May 1, 10:26 AM

Out of all these Tips I think the last one is the most important.  

 

Set aside Time for Forward Thinking

 

This is often the biggest challenge people have, finding time to break out of the routine, be innovative, creative and forward thinking.

Stephen Dale I've been following Dion Hinchcliffe for many years as well. You're fortunate to have met him in London. You bring up a very good point about monitoring our every move. As you say, there is a price we will pay one way or another for privacy and time will tell how this will all shake out in the end. I'd love to connect with you again, it's been a while. As you can see I launched Curatti and we've been very well received. Hope things are going well with you, let's catch up soon.

Genome Data Could Lead to Cancer Cures

Genome Data Could Lead to Cancer Cures | NYL - News YOU Like | Scoop.it

Scientists are cataloging the DNA of exceptional survivors for study,

 

Jan Crisitello, a 70-year-old grandmother of four, was diagnosed in 2002 with stage 4 melanoma, which kills the vast majority of its victims within five years. Although chemotherapy helped her make it past the five-year mark, by 2007 the cancer was growing again. Desperate, she joined a 29-patient trial of a drug being developed by Pfizer (PFE). The drug was a failure for almost all of the patients, and Pfizer spokeswoman Sally Beatty says it has been “deprioritized for further development.” For Crisitello, the drug worked, and her cancer is in full remission. Now oncologists are studying her DNA to determine how her genome may have made her unusually responsive to the drug. “I feel very fortunate,” she says. “It would make me feel good if they found out why and could replicate that for other people.”


So far, about 100 exceptional responders have been identified by researchers poring through roughly a decade’s worth of clinical trials, says Barbara Conley, associate director of the NCI’s cancer diagnosis program. Starting in June, she says, the institute will urge researchers and doctors nationwide to send in clinical data on these patients. “We want to cast a broad net,” Conley says. “The key is, can you find another patient with the same kind of abnormality, and will they respond?”

 

In a study presented in early April at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in San Diego, researchers analyzed the case of a 57-year-old woman with advanced thyroid cancer whose tumor “melted away” during a drug trial and didn’t start growing again for 18 months, according to the study’s lead author, Dana-Farber instructor Nikhil Wagle. Although the rare, aggressive disease kills most victims within five months, an analysis of the patient’s genes showed that a mutation made her tumor responsive to Novartis’s (NVS) Afinitor, a drug typically used to treat kidney or breast cancer. Researchers plan to conduct further trials with thyroid cancer patients who have similar genetic mutations, Wagle says.

 

One of the first exceptional responders to have her genome sequenced has a similar mutation and saw her bladder cancer go into complete remission after she took Afinitor, says David Solit, director of the Center for Molecular Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering. He’s been seeking out surprising cases of cancer recovery ever since, trying to identify drugs that would be effective against diseases for which they weren’t intended. “I meet with clinical teams and often see these patients who have dramatic results to compounds not moving forward because they failed in a population,” Solit says. “These are mysteries we’ve always tried to solve, but we didn’t have the tools until now to figure out the variation of responses in patients.”

 

The challenge is to find a drug that even an ideal patient won’t develop a resistance to, says Lecia Sequist, an oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. People with advanced melanoma such as Crisitello are usually prescribed ipilimumab, a drug sold by Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) under the name Yervoy, but only 1 in 5 patients benefits from it, says Crisitello’s doctor, Lynn Schuchter. “While we’ve made huge advances in immunotherapy in recent years,” says Schuchter, the chief of hematology-oncology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, “we are still in the dark ages as to who should get the drug and why they are benefiting.”

Virtual reality: the 1990s technology set to change the design world

Virtual reality: the 1990s technology set to change the design world | NYL - News YOU Like | Scoop.it
As Facebook buys Oculus and Sony reveals its own VR device, Dezeen investigates what the resurgence of this old school technology means for designers.


Oculus VR was already big before Facebook bought the virtual reality headset maker for $2 billion. "Oculus has the potential to be the most social platform ever," said Mark Zuckerberg in a call to Facebook's investors, while his announcement post painted a picture of the world donning headsets to watch tennis, study in classrooms and consult with doctors.

Facebook sees Oculus Rift as a chance to profoundly transform communication, and to the gaming industry it's a generational leap in electronic entertainment. But there's more to virtual reality. It's as much a creative tool for designers and architects, as it is a new medium for designers to explore, and a close and personal way of experiencing the creations of others...

Broad patches of purple coincide with a lesser amount of photographs, while smaller clusters of yellow reveal the locations where people can't seem to put their cameras down.
