Debunking Myths About Worker Passion - Forbes

Debunking Myths About Worker Passion - Forbes | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“The key message from our work is that workers of all types and in all locations have the potential to be passionate – it’s not limited to a privileged few,” concludes John Hagel, c0-chairman Deloitte Center For The Edge. “Rather than just focusing on recruiting more passionate workers, the big opportunity is to look at the existing workforce and create environments that can tap into, nurture and amplify the passion of every worker already on the job. Without the right work environments, efforts to recruit additional passionate workers will likely be undermined as those new workers become frustrated in environments that do not support passion.”

Debunking six myths about open access scientific publishing | P2P Foundation

Debunking six myths about open access scientific publishing | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Open access delivered by journals is called “gold” open access and open access delivered by repositories is called “green” open access. The myth asserts that all open access is gold , even for peer-reviewed articles. It has been false since the birth of open access, and yet it remains a tenacious and widespread misconception. Today most open access in medicine and biomedicine is gold, but in every other field it’s mostly green.

When Bad Things Happen to Good Robots

When Bad Things Happen to Good Robots | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

On May 10th of this year, an unfortunate message appeared on the blog of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute’s Kermedic Trench Expedition. Nereus, the hybrid autonomous and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) capable of diving to some of the deepest locations on earth, was lost. As the crew was completing a productive two-hour dive, the camera feed abruptly went black and communication was lost. The team waited throughout the night for signs of life, until floating pieces of debris confirmed their worst fears. Nereus had imploded under pressure. As the crew noted in their message, this type of equipment failure is always a risk when you’re working in the deep ocean. The hadal zone is unforgiving and unmerciful.

Arnold Kuijpers, executive vice president of the Dutch co-operative bank Rabobank, tackled the issue of his bank’s damaging LIBOR scandal head-on in comments made to delegates at the International Summit of Cooperatives in Quebec.  The illegal manipulation of the inter-bank rate cost Rabobank a regulatory fine of almost USD $1 billion last year and also forced the bank’s then chairman to fall on his sword.

For better or worse, Twitter and Facebook are the guardians of free speech now - Gigaom

For better or worse, Twitter and Facebook are the guardians of free speech now - Gigaom | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

One of the most famous free-speech cases in U.S. history, the one that allowed publishers to live without fear of being bankrupted by a libel or defamation suit, involved a newspaper — namely the New York Times, which was sued in 1964 by an Alabama legislator named Sullivan. But any protection free speech gets in the future is more likely to come from TwitterFacebook and Google than it is from the Times, according to a recent essay in the Harvard Law Review.

Framed Democracy

Framed Democracy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In the last six months we have heard much about the mandate the Australian government believes it has for a variety of its policies and actions. But, is that mandate real? Have the public really empowered the government with the right to enact any legislation it believes is appropriate? Does a mandate exist if the promises before the election are different to acts, policies and proposed legislation after the election?
