"If you're an old manager, that's your baby. You're going to be very cautious in sacrificing that baby. But if you are a young manager, you come without that vested interest, without that baggage, so you're going to be much more radical in thinking about saying let's ax this brand, let's forget about this technology. Let's make a switch to this new way of doing things."

Perspective change. #f
 
I'm always interested where the various art disciplines intersect. Being a classical music fan, I love these creative images taken of the insides of various instruments. These images make you wonder, "what is this?" They tell a story, are graphically pleasing, are taken from a creative perspective, and appear almost architectural, (if you were a mouse!). They make you think of these instruments in a whole new way? How can you look at things you see every day from a new perspective? See the rest of the beautiful images here: http://www.lostateminor.com/2012/03/31/photographs-taken-inside-of-instruments/

'At some point it will be too difficult for large numbers of displaced workers to move into jobs requiring capabilities that are difficult for most of them to carry out even if they have the time and resources for retraining. When that time comes, the nation will be forced to reconsider the role that paid employment plays in distributing economic goods and services and in providing a meaningful focus for many people’s daily lives.' #fl

Best episode yet...
 
Last week's episode of +COSMOSonTV, entitled "A Light in The Darkness," portrayed the topics of illumination and optics through the stories of famed scientists. COSMOS, which has been critically acclaimed during its first five episodes, makes it clear that the openness of scientific knowledge is vital towards the advancement of our collective understanding of nature.

Neil deGrasse Tyson narrated the story of Joseph Fraunhofer (1787–1826), an abused orphan-turned-scientist whose discoveries are ultimately responsible for the basis of astrophysics -- Tyson’s occupation. Fraunhofer, a German optician, is credited for the discovery of the dark absorption lines found in light spectrums.

If you have yet to hear Fraunhofer's story, it can be viewed on Hulu.

Watch COSMOS: "A Light in The Darkness" here:

I love it when the science is connected to the history, and the history is non western.

Commentary from NASA Watch: 'The authors are utterly confused as to what a "goal", "objective", and "strategy" are and confusingly use the terms interchangeably. It is almost as if they say "it is important that we do what we are doing because we are already doing it".' All too familiar... #l

"Even though economic growth and social progress are correlated, especially for poorer countries, the connection is far from automatic, said Harvard Business School professor Michael Porter" #f
