In Performance for Pay? The Relation Between CEO Incentive Compensation and Future Stock Price Performance , a paper from U of Utah business-school professors, the relationship between executive performance and executive pay is intensively investigated.
Artur Coelho's insight:
e por cá ainda gostam de se pronunciar, dizendo que vivemos acima das possibilidades, que aguentamos aguentamos, e somos uns preguiçosos: "The longer a CEO is in office, the worse his performance becomes, because he is able to pack the board with friendly cronies who keep hiking his pay and overlooking his underperformance."
There are lots of fun ways to watch machines show-off: see them play massive Jenga games; ooh and aah as they draw peens and portraits; or, in the case of Carrara Robotics, check out a wire-saw saturated with diamond dust slice through a chunk of marble like it it's absolutely nothing.
An 1862 monograph by pioneering French neurologist Guillaume-Benjamin-Amand Duchenne de Boulogne (1806-1875) is full of disturbing photos of human subjects. Using electrodes, the scientist triggered muscular contractions in their faces. You know, for science.
Reports have surfaced of a professor with a mania for self-examination. His line of inquiry, however, is not of the Socratic philosophical sort. An expert in computer science, he is collecting data on his bodily functions. To improve his diet (and reduce his weight) he tracks what he eats down to the calorie. He straps sensors to his body to measure his caloric burn while exercising. Unsettlingly, it has been reported, the professor “is deep into the biochemistry of his feces . . .
Fully armed NATO and Russian aircraft keep having encounters as the tension between both powers increase. These photos were taken yesterday by RAF Eurofighters over Baltic airspace. They intercepted four SU-27 Flanker fighters and a Tupolev Tu22 Backfire bombers, among others.

danah boyd points out that when kids conduct their social lives in commercial spaces, it's not because they don't care about selling out; it's because they have no other option: "In a world where they have limited physical mobility and few places to go, they’re deeply appreciative of any space that will accept them."
boyd's extensive fieldwork with teens (documented in her must-read book It's Complicated) backstops her opinion.
Artur Coelho's insight:
At the same time, we tell teens and kids that they can't walk to school alone, can't play in the park alone, can't venture into town alone to shop or congregate, because of theDaily Mail-fed terror of sexual predators (who are overwhelmingly not strangers in parks, but relatives, teachers, clergy, coaches, and other authority figures in our kids' lives).
Then, when kids turn to the only place where they can be social without being feared or feared for -- the corporate-owned social spaces of the net -- we damn them for having no sense of authenticity and being uncritical serfs in commercial seigneuries."
From Prague to Paris to Tokyo to London, Enig Hui has traveled all over the world and captured stunning photos of the underground metro system. While the Malaysia native also documents urban scenes and beautiful landscapes, his images of subways and trains across the globe are particularly striking, evoking a strong sense of drama in their extreme symmetry and contrast. Whether the train platforms are eerily empty or bustling with commuters, Hui's incredible photos capture the essence of living in the modern concrete jungle, with a classic film aesthetic that complements the gritty energy of urban life. With a keen eye for patterns, balance, and careful framing, the photographer manages to transform the metro—a staple of sprawling metropolises—into stark works of art that embody the city's vitality.
