Can China innovate? This is certainly one of the big business questions of the age. Sceptics point to the proliferation of copycat business models as evidence that Chinese companies cannot create for themselves. But the naysayers exaggerate: in certain sectors, China is now taking a global lead http://econ.st/1JTYubP
“YEAH, the Chinese can take a test, but…they’re not terribly imaginative. They’re not entrepreneurial. They don’t innovate—that’s why...

With fanfare, NASA released the first batch of mesmerizing close-up images of the dwarf planet and its moons.

In the wake of Charleston killings, here is a question to ponder:
Ethenic Minorities are disproportionately victimized by gun crimes. Then Why Is NAACP Not Comdeming Gun Ownership?!
A new study is the first to examine firearm-related fatalities by ethnicity, race and state

+Mark Wilber Good research Mark.  Thank you.  
I read the communication.  It is like most other moderate and progressive recommendations;  i.e., fairly general, and non specific particularly when it comes to ethnic groups most effected by it.  

Moreover, even though they refer to age groups, they do not call for age restrictions for owning a gun -- with the exceptions of those in the military, or part of a police force.  Currently, there is a flimsy 18 year age limit, if you buy the gun from a gun store.  The age limit of 21 will reduce crimes by over 25%.

Anyway, we both have to get back to work.  But I think NAACP can do a lot more reaching out to people of color, asking them to by disavow guns and gun ownership.  
Cheers, E

A dramatic video has captured the behaviour of cytotoxic T cells – the body’s ‘serial killers’ – as they hunt down and eliminate cancer cells before moving on to their next target.

Brilliant!  Wonder if it can turn into a new form of low level safe clean energy.  Nonetheless, brilliant.
Cleo Loi was an undergraduate when she made a startling discovery. Her story shows how brilliance, dedication and imagination drive science.

Actually according an article in ERE, (unstructured and unplanned) interview based hiring has worse odds.  66% of the time, they are considered failures. See http://www.ere.net/2009/10/26/five-ugly-numbers-that-you-cant-ignore-its-time-to-calculate-hiring-failures/ 
 
Why #Hiring Odds Are The Same As Flipping A Coin http://bit.ly/1HLiZnf #Recruiting #HR
Decades of research into the effectiveness of employment interviews has shown one consistent result: we are terrible at conducting them. Our ability to predict success from a typical unstructured job interview is roughly the same as flipping a coin. A round up of 85 years of research by leadership scholars showed that unstructured interviews were ranked so low in effectiveness that they only explained 14% of an employee’s performance.

"... nickel-iron oxide is a world-record performing material that can catalyze both the hydrogen and the oxygen reaction," Cui said. "No other catalyst can do this with such great performance."
Stanford scientists have developed a cheap and efficient way to extract clean-burning hydrogen fuel from water 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

I love HBR.  Even when they get it wrong.  It is 99% waste of time, but only on FB.

Here one can helplessly sit in absolute awe and soul crushing envy and hopelessly wonder the stupidifyingly obvious question: "... duhhhh... what was in that water?!"  :-)
Now that's what I call a social network!
Thanks for my good friend Kevin Knuth who shared earlier.

I for one cannot wait.
For those people who are afraid of their privacy being violated, ohhh please!  Where have been going lately? ;-) Facebook reads your browser history;  now that is something to be outraged about.  Then again... :-)

Driverless cars and smart cities is more than just safer cities with less accidents.  It is about more efficient, more eco friendly, more productive cities.

I CAN NOT WAIT!  Oh God, please please please, get me a driverless car for Father's day.

Regular Falafel and Chicken Shwarma are my favorites. Very casual place. Think of it as Michelin Rated food with In and Out type atmosphere :-) Now the minor issues. It gets really crowded, but they are very good at serving people quickly. The seating is outside, but it is covered. The parking lot is super small, but there is a parking in the shopping mall across the street. There is a high school near by. Again, I suggest getting there at non-rush hours. Also the meat section is a zoo with numbers being called out randomly. All in all it is really worth it.

Legandary or amazing does not begin to describe this place. Fred and his team took care of everything; from the car rental to insurance, to making sure I get the best deal. The fellows at Enterprise knew Legend and Fred, and called him the best. They are right around the corner. Showed my car to my mechanic Dennis, told him the total cost. Shook his head and said he has to use it for his wife's car :-)

Great Sushi. Very small place, and no reservations. Everything we ordered was great.

Strongly recommend flaming trout. Had white out roll too, and it was 4.5 Star. The place is popular and the wait on Friday night was about an hour. Too bad this App does not allow you to label your photos! 😞

This is for Carnivores. Get their combination plates. You are pretty much fed for a week. Ask for Extra sauce.

Thief and CHEATS. This is a really Horrid Place. There is a good reason the parking lot is empty! STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY. The food is OK at best, but over priced. The service is horrible. To add insult to injury, these jerks cheat you on your bill. They target the travelers on the CalTrain. STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY.

This place used to be a great local vegitarian place. But the service has gone to dogs! Three times I took food home and the containers were half or less full, the bread was cold and the manager was a snoothy jerk. On top of it, the quality and freshness of the food has gone down. They own the Madras store a few doors down, and that is always bad news. What is old and going rotten goes into the restaurant food. I am never going back.
