12 meses, 12 startups: la historia del emprendedor nómada que inicia un proyecto cada mes

12 meses, 12 startups: la historia del emprendedor nómada que inicia un proyecto cada mes | innovateme | Scoop.it
A este joven holandés le queda todavía un largo camino que recorrer hasta que llegue marzo de 2015: su reto no es otro que crear 12 'startups' en 12 meses.
Lilia Hernández's insight:

El mundo se está convirtiendo en nómada. Estamos en la época en que los emprendedores se vuelven móviles, trabajan desde donde quieren y el tiempo que lo requiera cada proyecto. Suena como una interesante forma de vida. Sin embargo se ve limitada a ciertas disciplinas que permiten esta capacidad de "estar sin estar en todos lados al mismo tiempo". Personas relacionadas con las TI tienen esa suerte. Lamentablemente existimos muchos que no tomamos ese camino, y que nos gusta pertenecer o movernos a otro ritmo y en otras circunstancias. ¿El mundo se está volviendo nómada?

New insights on an ancient plague could improve modern treatments for infections

New insights on an ancient plague could improve modern treatments for infections | innovateme | Scoop.it
While bubonic plague would seem a blight of the past, there have been recent outbreaks in India, Madagascar and the Congo. And it's mode of infection now appears similar to that used by other well-adapted human pathogens, such as the HIV virus.


In their study, the Duke and Duke-NUS researchers set out to determine whether the large swellings that are the signature feature of bubonic plague -- the swollen lymph nodes, or buboes at the neck, underarms and groins of infected patients -- result from the pathogen or as an immune response.


It turns out to be both. "The bacteria actually turn the immune cells against the body," said senior author Soman Abraham, Ph.D. a professor of pathology at Duke and professor of emerging infectious diseases at Duke-NUS. "The bacteria enter the draining lymph node and actually hide undetected in immune cells, notably the dendritic cells and monocytes, where they multiply. Meanwhile, the immune cells send signals to bring in even more recruits, causing the lymph nodes to grow massively and providing a safe haven for microbial multiplication."


The bacteria are then able to travel from lymph node to lymph node within the dendritic cells and monocytes, eventually infiltrating the blood and lungs. From there, the infection can spread through body fluids directly to other people, or via biting insects such as fleas.
Abraham, St. John and colleagues note that there are several potential drug candidates that target the trafficking pathways that the bubonic plague bacteria use. In animal models, the researchers successfully used some of these therapies to prevent the bacteria from reaching systemic infection, markedly improving survival and recovery.


"This work demonstrates that it may be possible to target the trafficking of host immune cells and not the pathogens themselves to effectively treat infection and reduce mortality," St. John said. "In view of the growing emergency of multi-resistant bacteria, this strategy could become very attractive."

Dr Lendy Spires's curator insight, September 11, 2014 11:19 PM


From the eradication of foot binding to foot pedaled water pumps, from the Pill to property rights, innovation can transform women’s lives. Virtuous circles of change can be sparked by women’s use of a seemingly simple technology; a shift in social attitudes about what is possible for women; or increased access for women to economic opportunities, employment, savings and credit.

More than at any other time in history, the world is poised to leverage innovation to improve the lives of poor women and empower them to realize their potential. Innovation and women’s empowerment are rarely discussed within the same context but each has essential value for human progress. Both innovation and gender equality underpin all of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and both require thinking and acting beyond existing, predefined parameters.

Both endeavors require breaking the mold. As the imperative to ensure women’s participation and rights in social, economic and political progress gains urgency, innovation presents a particularly exciting pathway for seizing the present moment and achieving the goals of women’s empowerment and gender equality—goals that have been so difficult to realize in the past. At the most basic level, innovations can benefit women simply by improving their well-being in terms of health, nutrition, income, even life span.

Beyond vital improvements in well-being, innovations can lead to women’s empowerment, securing freedom and resources for women to make decisions, build confidence and act in their own interests. Deeper and truly transformative innovations reshape men’s and women’s roles on a longer-term basis. Examples abound where only yesterday women were immobile, but today move freely, where women were silent but today have a voice, where women were dependent but today are the engines of progress for their families, businesses and communities.

It is well known that innovation and shifting gender roles are each catalytic processes that drive change. But little is known about the connection between innovation and women’s empowerment: How do innovations create long-term, positive shifts in gender relations? This research is the first scholarly assessment of its kind to understand how innovations have improved women’s well-being, empowered women and advanced gender equality. We examine eight catalytic innovations in three domains that intersect areas with the greatest need and most creative entry points for realizing women’s empowerment:
(1) technology use
(2) social norm change and
(3) economic resilience.
