Robots are poised to eliminate millions of jobs over the coming decades. We have to address the coming epidemic of "technological unemployment" if we're to avoid crippling levels of poverty and societal collapse. Here's how a guaranteed basic income will help — and why it's absolutely inevitable.

QUOTE: The idea of a guaranteed basic income, also referred to as unconditional or universal basic income, is starting to gain traction in many parts of the world, both in developed and developing nations. It's actually a very simple idea: Everyone in society receives a single basic income to provide for a comfortable living whether they choose to work or not. Importantly, it's only intended to be enough for a person to survive on. 

QUOTE: ...we may have little choice but to implement it. Given the ever-increasing concentration of wealth and the frightening prospect of technological unemployment, it will be required to prevent complete social and economic collapse. It's not a question of if, but how soon.

Norway has been named the world's best place to be a mother in an annual report released by Save the Children. The rating system takes into consideration factors such as the overall health and well-being of both mothers and children: http://bit.ly/1g79Zji
Norway is the best place to be a mother, researchers say. Find out what they're doing right!

The map provides a level of detail previously unavailable, as it is the first ever to collect data published by all of Europe’s municipalities. The results are impressively comprehensive and reveal a few surprises.

The longer a language-learner spends on the hobby, and the greater the numbers of languages studied, the harder a simple question becomes: “How many languages do you speak?” The more languages one has studied and the more experience one has, the more the answer feels like “none!” http://econ.st/1KJfnCG

I love the combination of good cheese, bread and wine

The “French Paradox” has long been a source of wonder for us fat-assed Americans. How the hell are the Frenchies eating a high-fat, decidedly un-Paleo diet laden with bread, Brie, and Bourdeaux, and still maintaining an obesity rate that, despite growing in recent years, is dwarfed by those of the US and UK?

Good news: cheese might actually alter your gut bacteria to create a compound that improves metabolism and combats obesity. Bring on the Brie.

The Dutch have become so much taller in such a short period that scientists chalk most of it up to their changing environment. As the Netherlands developed, it became one of the world’s largest producers and consumers of cheese and milk. An increasingly egalitarian distribution of wealth and universal access to health care may also have helped.

I am descended from Vikingr that were 6.5 feet, my father from 'Normans' 5' 6" [ 1.68m ] my mothers ancient Irish 5' [ 1.52m ] and my 5' 10" [ 1.78m ] my son will be 6' easy.

Look to Japan for a generation of 6 foot kids!


The 'big answer' is tribal. If you have 4 real seasons [ the med does not ] your genome will develop faster....

...a weird thing I've spotted.

Why you should hire a French person

Individual French are very good at getting on with people in multinational organisations. France is a mix of Northern and Southern Europe in one nation. They sometimes bemoan this, but perhaps it explains why there are so many French in senior management in global businesses – they combine a rules based, quantitative culture, with some of that “Latin charm” that we Anglo-Saxons are so envious of.

I doubt most French believe they´re the reincarnation of Napoleon or de Gaule, but yeah... there are always exceptions... ;)

The Netherlands as a country is no stranger to less traditional work environments - it has the highest proportion of part time workers in the EU, 46.1 per cent. However, Utrecht's experiment with welfare is expected to be the first of its kind in the country.

I love maps, and I just found out about the following website. It´s still in Beta, and some functionalities are in Alpha, but I believe the idea is fantastic.

Very interesting piece on Emotional Intelligence

The mixed model has five key areas:

Self awareness: Self-awareness involves knowing your own feelings. This includes having an accurate assessment of what you’re capable of, when you need help, and what your emotional triggers are.Self-management: This involves being able to keep your emotions in check when they become disruptive. Self-management involves being able to control outbursts, calmly discussing disagreements, and avoiding activities that undermine you like extended self-pity or panic.Motivation: Everyone is motivated to action by rewards like money or status. Goleman’s model, however, refers to motivation for the sake of personal joy, curiosity, or the satisfaction of being productive.Empathy: While the three previous categories refer to a person’s internal emotions, this one deals with the emotions of others. Empathy is the skill and practice of reading the emotions of others and responding appropriately.Social skills: This category involves the application of empathy as well as negotiating the needs of others with your own. This can include finding common ground with others, managing others in a work environment, and being persuasive.
You’re taught about history, science, and math when you’re growing up. Most of us, however, aren’t taught how to identify or deal with our own emotions, or the emotions of others. These skills can be valuable, but you’ll never get them in a classroom.

I personally agree with the EU, however, Google´s response is very interesting

Competition online is thriving — despite what many of the complainants in this case allege. Indeed if you look at shopping, it’s clear that there’s a ton of competition (including from Amazon and eBay) that has not been harmed by Google’s own shopping service. Just look at the following graphs compiled using comScore data:

An internal memo highlights the "very strong case" Google plans for its defense.

To ensure that a high linguistic level is achieved, every IBL student travels abroad for one semester in the second year to follow a study programme abroad, and one semester in the third year to carry out a work placement abroad; therefore at least two compulsory semesters abroad during the entire study programme.
