A New Scorecard Explains How the World Is Getting Better. Really.

A New Scorecard Explains How the World Is Getting Better. Really. | Punk Band Member | Scoop.it
For centuries, optimists and pessimists have argued over the state of the world.

-

For centuries, optimists and pessimists have argued over the state of the world. Pessimists see a world where more people means less food, where rising demand for resources means depletion and war, and, in recent decades, where boosting production capacity means more pollution and global warming. One of the current generation of pessimists’ sacred texts, The Limits to Growth, influences the environmental movement to this day.

 

The optimists, by contrast, cheerfully claim that everything—human health, living standards, environmental quality, and so on—is getting better. Their opponents think of them as  “cornucopian” economists, placing their faith in the market to fix any and all problems.

But, rather than picking facts and stories to fit some grand narrative of decline or progress, we should try to compare across all areas of human existence to see if the world really is doing better or worse. Together with 21 of the world’s top economists, I have tried to do just that, developing a scorecard spanning 150 years. Across 10 areas—including health, education, war, gender, air pollution, climate change, and biodiversity—the economists all answered the same question: What was the relative cost of this problem in every year since 1900, all the way to 2013, with predictions to 2050.

The 4 tips are sound advice.

Tiffany Crosby's curator insight, October 23, 2013 2:26 PM

How resilient are you? Being a small business owner is hard but rewarding work. With the right attitude and proper support structure, you can make a go at it. 

Ciara Turner's curator insight, October 24, 2013 12:29 PM

 

Small business owners will always feel like they have a lot to prove as well a lot to lose. Especially, for the majority of the business owners that life has been devoted to keeping their business afloat. They have invested too much of their time money and effort into their business. According to the article it stress that a business owner MUST have resilience as a leader. They must be able to take on any obstacle that comes their way.

 

With the understanding that they still-fragile economic recovery, the difficulties small businesses face securing funding, and the importance of finding and retaining the right employees, places enormous stress on leaders today. Which is understandable however the business world does not wait on anyone? The competitors feast off of those that show weakness. By developing a true resilient mindset, small business owners can continue growing their business regardless of the obstacles around them.

 

In the article it gave a couple of tips on how to improve business owner’s resilience mindsets. It was four steps; don’t go it alone, accept people help, keep your eye on the goal, maintain a positive outlook.

 

Reach out to other trusted business owner or consultants for ideas and support. Small Business owners need to realize they are not in it alone. Once you have reached out the next step will accept the help that is being offered. It is not a sign of weakness. Business owners should keep their eye and mind on why they started this company to reinsurance themselves when time gets hard. Which can help them keep a positive outlook on any situation that comes up to sufface.  

 

With that being said I think that smaller business should engaged more into the Chapter 9 topic business to business relations. Which chapter touches on a couple key points for this particular article the fact of building and maintaining a relationship with other local businesses. On page 194 in the chapter someone suggested and I quote , " one-one-one discussions, partner advisory councils, surveys, and collaboration. the idea is to understand their issues and help partners grow."   Having an understanding that it is a competition however what a competition is if you have no one to compete with.

 

From a PR stand point I think that having that open minded mind set and such with only help you and your community thrive for better prosperity.

Synaptic Transistor Learns While it Computes,brain-inspired device looks toward highly efficient and fast parallel computing.

Synaptic Transistor Learns While it Computes,brain-inspired device looks toward highly efficient and fast parallel computing. | Punk Band Member | Scoop.it
A new brain inspired device, which learns while it computes, could take parallel computing into a new era of ultra efficient high performance.

It doesn’t take a Watson to realize that even the world’s best supercomputers are staggeringly inefficient and energy-intensive machines.

Our brains have upwards of 86 billion neurons, connected by synapses that not only complete myriad logic circuits; they continuously adapt to stimuli, strengthening some connections while weakening others. We call that process learning, and it enables the kind of rapid, highly efficient computational processes that put Siri and Blue Gene to shame.

Materials scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have now created a new type of transistor that mimics the behavior of a synapse. The novel device simultaneously modulates the flow of information in a circuit and physically adapts to changing signals.

Exploiting unusual properties in modern materials, the synaptic transistor could mark the beginning of a new kind of artificial intelligence: one embedded not in smart algorithms but in the very architecture of a computer. The findings appear in Nature Communications.

Dan Watson and the article / author are right on - teamwork is a critical ingredient to any business' success.  The 6 team mate type discussion is definitely something to consider. 

 

In essence - this also speaks to the power of true Diversity and Inclusion.  D&I is more of a business imperitive than a social cause - as to ignore D & I is to pay lip service to "team work", and "leaves money on the table".  The article through the 6 team mate types speaks to valuing diversity of opinion, style, and background; and inclusion as valuable to a highly performing team.

Vincent Picton's curator insight, August 18, 2014 10:07 AM

I do not necessarily agree with this saying, but I feel that teamwork may lead to success faster.

 

It is true that one person may not be able to complete the jobs that five people could due to lack of skills, but if that person was very skilled they may be able to complete the task, it would just take them longer.

 

This is how I felt sitting with the client in the waiting room.
