Shooting, editing and broadcasting a film seems easier today thanks to digital technology... But if access to technology is easier, getting funding is not. How does an independent filmmaker make his project come true on a small budget? Coming up in the next edition of Generation Y.

After a whirlwind tour of different kinds of networks, this talk explains how 'reaction networks' - first introduced in chemistry - can be used in evolutionary game theory.  In chemical reactions, free energy always decreases: this is a version of the 2nd law of thermodynamics.   In certain classes of evolutionary games, evolution tends to increase ‘fitness’, and/or lead the players to a ‘Nash equilibrium’.  All these facts are related!

"Cotton crimes campaign stop #H_and_M being complicit in #Cotton_Crimes
This year, yet again, hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children in #Uzbekistan were forced to work harvesting cotton. Activists who spoke out were arbitrarily detained and threatened. This modern-day #slavery is no secret to clothing retailers, and many have signed a pledge to refuse to buy cotton made in Uzbekistan as a result.

Despite pledging to not to source Uzbek cotton, the global retailer H&M is refusing to take steps that would guarantee no companies in its supply chain profit from slavery in Uzbekistan. Even worse, H&M reportedly had business links with International, a company that explicitly deals in cotton from Uzbekistan.

Whilst forced labour is used to grow and harvest cotton in many countries, Uzbekistan is the only country where it is the government that organises and benefits from this practice. Schools are often closed during plantings and harvests so children can be forced into the fields. Adults are told that if they do not participate in the harvest they risk losing their jobs. The government reportedly earns around US$1 billion from revenue from the sale of cotton. None of the profits are returned to farmers or local communities. Those forced into the field receive little, if any, pay."

Phys. Org. reported "(The world is more at risk as persistent economic weakness saps our ability to tackle environmental challenges,) warned the WEF, which each year hosts a massive get-together of decision makers and activists at the Swiss mountain resort in Davos. In its Global Risks 2013 report, based on a survey of more than 1,000 experts from industry, government, academia and civil society, WEF pointed out that crises and austerity measures were severely testing the global economic system. At the same time, it stressed, the world faced rising global temperatures and more extreme weather like catastrophic flooding in China and Hurricane Sandy, which slammed into the East Coast of the United States in late October. The acute social and economic difficulties are making the world more reluctant to address more long-term threats like climate change, while natural disasters wreak serious havoc on many economies, the report cautioned".

In the next few weeks two projects competing in the Future Emerging Technologies (FETs) tranche of big funding from the European Research Council will be decided. Each of the two will receive 1billion Euros to continue their research. The idea is to have big science projects in Europe that have the potential to radically change our world for the better.

Six projects are competing, and all look like they have a lot of potential. Which is your favourite?
