Solutions for homelessness are out there and have been tested.  The cost savings is illustrated and the recovered lives then become no longer a drain on governmental services.  Wouldn't you like to see a zero veteran homelessness figure in your community?  What about the mentally or physically challenged or ill?  What about those running from domestic abuse?  The article points to solutions in Ireland and the USA.

The statistics of families that have fragmented are sobering.  The only class of people who have an uptick in families staying together are those white higher income families.  All other family demographic groups have had sharp declines in the number of families who break apart.  Some families reunify with step-parents and merging of step-children, but the number of households with a single parent keep increasing.  Studies have shown that children from single parent families do poorer in school and poorer in higher education, as well as poorer in job prospects when they are out and on their own.  This demographic shift is stacking the decks against youngsters unfairly, but nevertheless, some will overcome the increased odds against them, yet many won't.  The rippled effect of this loss of potential will have effects for all of society.

Taking and broadcasting photos has never been simpler since the internet became part of our lives. And questions relating to the right of personal portrayal have never been asked as much as they are today. #Marc #Isgour, lawyer and lecturer at +Université de Liège (ULg)  , has just published a work which reviews the questions raised on the subject and explores all the facets of the right of personal portrayal.

In the next 10 to 15 years, cities worldwide will be connected virtually in ways many residents haven't even imagined yet.  Many city planners, however, are already planning for the future.  City infrastructures will have to be repaired and rebuilt in smarter grids and sensored for immediate data management by city management.  Some cities are gearing up, others haven't begun to even think about it, but the future will be here sooner than many suspect.  The below article from the Foreign Affairs website illustrates the coming changes.

#cityplanning   #technologyforinfrastructure   #cityfutures   #cityvirtualnetworks   #futuresofcities  
This year signals a major inflection point for the Internet of Everything, which will have a much bigger impact on the world and its cities than the Internet did in its first 20 years. The Internet of Everything is already revolutionizing the way our cities operate, creating a more dynamic global economy and enriching citizens' lives.

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston found a combination of free medications and repeated automated telephone calls sharply cuts smoking rates among discharged patients, compared to patients receiving the standard counseling before leaving the hospital. But the cost for each patient that quits is high. #Science #Business

+Lalrinsanga Fanai You've asked this question in 13 communities. This is considered spam and it shows your lack of commitment to proper engagement. It would be better if you actually demonstrated that you've read about this topic first, by telling us what you know and what you're specifically having trouble with, and then asking for feedback. Your profile says you like to read yet it is filled with homework questions that you spam Communities with. Please note that G+ is not a place for you to get other people to do your homework for you.

CC. +Gary Ray R FYI. Your answer on this question in your community was spot on.

Competitive advantages are temporary, especially in fast changing industries. Is your company fast enough? It depends!
 Research on environmental velocity highlights  "the importance of organizations operating “in time” with their environments and in synchrony across their subunits and activities". (McCarthy et al. 2010: 618) Competitive adva...

As part of Open Access Week 2014, the Scholastica team hosted a recorded panel discussion entitled- "Inside the Editors’ Office: Launching a Sustainable Open Access Journal." 

We were lucky to have three editors at different stages of OA journal development join the discussion: Yale University professor Olav Sorenson, editor of Sociological Science, and University at Buffalo Librarians Amy Vilz and Molly Poremski, editors of The Reading Room: A Journal of Special Collections. Check it out!

New research on entrepreneurship and network multiplexity. Understanding the multiple types of overlapping relationships in a network.
Multiplexity occurs in entrepreneurial networks when flows interact within and across relationships. It defines how these networks function and evolve and cannot be examined by studying network structure or flows separately. Despite the growing recognition of the importance of multiplexity, related research has remained limited and lacks an integrated approach to simultaneously examine structure and flows, thus restricting our understanding of en...

When off the grid, temporarily or long term, here's how to manage washing clothes.
 
The power goes out.  Maybe, just for a couple of weeks, a month or more due to storms or natural disasters, or you've run out of money to pay the electric bill.  How do you get clean clothes for school and work or just everyday use?  Well, I still have a washboard, but here are some off the grid ideas for getting clean clothes no matter where you are.
Right now, we can still rely on modern technology to do all the work for us. But what will happen if SHTF and the grid goes down?
