Berlin’s Tech Scene Offers Hope to Economy – NYTimes.com

 

 

 

 

 

BERLIN — The courtyard of the nightclub Picknick was packed with partygoers dancing, shouting over the music and snapping photographs of one another, by all appearances just another night in this dilettante party capital. But appearances, on this recent Saturday night, were very much deceiving.

Humanising the Enterprise for Greater Efficiency and Effectiveness – Ross Mayfield’s Weblog

[…] Don’t fall into the ROI trap and measure the wrong things just to get the seal of approval. What’s the return on attention, not return on the cost of the system.

Details soon on Italian program

Sviluppo Nucleare Italia, the joint venture of Enel and Edf, will lead the new nuclear renaissance in Italy – probably through a Mankala-type approach in which a consortium of consumers and suppliers which will share the financial burden in exchange for fixed contracts for cheaper energy. The idea is similar to that employed by Teollisudden Voima Oyj in Finland. During the meeting, Enel CEO Fulvio Conti invited the competitors ‘to invest together with us, in order to have a quota’ even though he clarified that Enel would not take leadership roles in the new reactor projects.

U.S. Drops Tariffs on Roquefort – WSJ.com (2009-05-07T17:34:14Z) http://tinyurl.com/df94ou

U.S. Drops Tariffs on Roquefort - WSJ.com
“The European Commission and the U.S. announced a provisional agreement in a lengthy dispute over the European Union’s ban on hormone-treated beef. The deal ends for now the threat of retaliatory duties from the U.S. on EU products ranging from Roquefort cheese from France to Spanish hams and Italian mineral water. And it more than triples the amount of beef from cattle untreated by hormones that the U.S. can export to the EU. But it doesn’t address the main controversy: the U.S. practice of feeding hormones to cattle to make them bigger. The U.S. says beef from hormone-fed cattle is safe to eat. The EU says one of the hormones causes cancer and others pose a health risk.” – lelapin

“When measured in terms of financial gyrations and national employment, 2008 was an absolutely terrible year. When measured in terms of production, the United States economy in 2008 was the best in its history. How the economy can reach new production highs at the same time that jobs disappear and its financial system is in chaos? Given that the disease has such strange symptoms — One has to wonder whether the usual remedies are still appropriate.”
