Can You Portmanteau?
I recently read an article in which the word satisficing was used. The word intrigued me. According to the author, satisficing is a combination of sufficing and satisfying. This led me to investigate if there were other words that were made by combining the sounds and meanings of two existing words. I learned that such a composite word is called a portmanteau. I also discovered that there are many portmanteaus that we use on a daily basis, frequently without realizing that's what they are.

Is Neuroplasticity an Effective Leadership Tool?
New thought processes always precede new paradigms. Those new thought processes allow you to see possibilities that once appeared impossible. They only appeared impossible because of the prevailing mindset. That mindset is stored in our brains. Our brains hold information in our neurons. As a rule, neurons do not make up information. They store it, like file cabinets, and retrieve it when needed. This article explores the possibility of creating new paradigms that are not predicated on the information stored in our neurons. It is a relatively new science called neuroplasticity. It may be the key component needed to effectively drive innovation.

Information Feedback Loops In Stock Markets, Investing, Innovation And Mathematical Trends
It seems that no matter how complex our civilization and society gets, we humans are able to cope with the ever changing dynamics, find reason in what seems like chaos and create order out of what appears to be random. We run through our lives making observations, one-after-another, trying to find meaning - sometimes we are able, sometimes not, and sometimes we think we see patterns which may or not be so. Our intuitive minds attempt to make rhyme of reason, but in the end without empirical evidence much of our theories behind how and why things work, or don't work, a certain way cannot be proven, or disproven for that matter.

Ever heard of a 'false metric'? It's the very human act of viewing a relatively unimportant part of a system as though it were a critical indicator of success. For instance, a manager might track the productivity of his staff by ensuring that they all 'clock in on time.' But arriving early is no guarantee of productivity, and measuring it is not the same thing as ensuring the result you're after. Et voila: False metric.

Creative Commons (CC) resources are continuing to increase, from web pages to graphics, to audio and video media. Creative Commons Licensing was started by a Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig to deal with creative works protected by copyright law, including text, audio, pictures and video of any subject, in any format. The words 'Commons' derives from those elements of the environment we all share, seas, rivers, land and air. Today there are also cultural commons including art and historical landmarks, and scientific commons that enable the sharing of critical research, i.e. open access to research critical to advance progress against cancer. And, the EU has called for full open access to scientific research by 2020.

Disruptive 3D Technology Considered
The other day our think tank was discussing the challenges of 3-D printing and how "Capitalism will begin to suffer damage when 3D printing starts to affect the retail distribution chain." Consider if you will that in the future people will be 3D printing at home using carbon composite layering graphene, metallic materials, plastics, ceramic materials, etc. - people don't need to go to a retail store to buy cheap products, they can merely print them in their living room. What about the jobs at the major retailers, what about the management in retail, the buyers, truck drivers, warehouse staff? All those jobs gone?

When It Comes To Technology Grants, Startups Can Offer More Bang For the Buck Than Universities
In reviewing the scientific research grants we give to academia, billions of million dollars a year, I often find it amazing how little we get for all that money spent. No, don't get me wrong, I believe in research, it's just that I wonder if government is the best way to fund innovative pure research science. You see, I find that the amount of government funded research is so vast it is crowding out the private foundations and corporate sponsored research mechanism, which I find completely troubling.

Using Ball Mills in the Energy Industry
In the industry worldwide, there is already some considerable experience in the use of ultra-fine ground coal in energy production - as a cost-effective fuel to replace gas and fuel oil at energy production facilities (in the USA, Germany, and China). The USA has positive experience in using it at a 600 MW unit in North Carolina for firing a boiler powered by ultra-fine ground coal. Ultra-fine ground coal is also being used to power boilers run by the Steinmuller corporation in Germany, for whom a specially-designer unit to exploit the power source was built. The results were very successful. This new technology is low-cost, with a short return-on-investment cycle which will hit break-even in no more than 2 to 3 years. The additional financing costs are in producing the ultra-fine ground coal (the purchase of ball mill machinery) - the additional machinery also has a short investment payback cycle due to the economics of the fuel supply industry.
