Graham Watson's curator insight, October 9, 11:01 AM
I thought I'd put this here - he has returned. The BBC's Kamal Ahmed returns to blogging with a look at the work of Richard Thaler, in the light of him winning the Nobel Economics Prize. As a cursory introduction, it gives a flavour of his work and his comment on how he's going to spend the £845,000 prize is apt for a behavioural economist.

Climate Code Red: 9 significant scientific findings too recent to be included in the new IPCC report

Climate Code Red: 9 significant scientific findings too recent to be included in the new IPCC report | THEIR STORY | Scoop.it

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) releases its landmark synthesis report today (Nov 2nd). The report—which summarizes findings released in Assessment Reports over the past year—underscores three major facts about climate change: It’s happening now, it’s already affecting communities and ecosystems around the world, and the most dangerous impacts can still be avoided if we act now.

The IPCC reports, released roughly every six years, are the most comprehensive, authoritative consensus on climate change among scientific experts. However, the cut-off date for literature for each Assessment Report was in 2013 , so it’s worth taking stock of recent scientific advancements and climate-related events that have occurred since then.

Here we discuss research highlights around four areas: sea level rise, extreme weather and climate events, ecosystems, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and temperature. While by no means comprehensive, these findings illustrate how the trends documented in the IPCC continue to take a toll and in some cases, may be underestimated.

Is The World About To Take A “Gold Shower?”

Is The World About To Take A “Gold Shower?” | THEIR STORY | Scoop.it
The 1944 Bretton Woods international monetary system as it has developed to the present is become, honestly said, the greatest hindrance to world peace and prosperity. Now China, increasingly backed by Russia—the two great Eurasian nations—are taking decisive steps to create a very viable alternative to the tyranny of the US dollar over the world trade and finance. Wall Street and Washington are not amused, but they are powerless to stop it…Now, ironically, two of the foreign economies that allowed the dollar an artificial life extension beyond 1989—Russia and China—are carefully unveiling that most feared alternative, a viable, gold-backed international currency and potentially, several similar currencies that can displace the unjust hegemonic role of the dollar today.

ReGenUC's curator insight, November 27, 2014 5:59 PM

We have mixed feelings about this one. On the surface, it's a pretty good example of non-sensational reporting that challenges the usual stereotypes (typefied by the 'Faces of Meth' campaign).  However, it appears to be using identifiable photos of someone who reportedly attempted suicide recently and might (as a result of this article) be exposed to a variety of stressors.
