The bees in Norway are appreciated, so much so that they've been furnished with their own super-highway through major cities.  See the article for the enlightening tips.  Soooo, you want honey on that biscuit?

Why do cities look like neurons?
It's no coincidence. It's the constructal law in action.

Why Hierarchies are Natural, and Inevitable.

"One of the most powerful insights born from the constructal law is that social systems are natural designs that emerge and evolve to facilitate flow of the currents they represent on the landscape. 

The river basin uses its rivulets, streams, and main channels to move water from the plain to the river mouth just as surely as our respiratory system uses tiny alveoli, bronchial tubes, and the trachea to bathe our lungs with oxygen. CEOs use managers and workers to create their company’s products and spread them to their distributors and customers, just as presidents, prime ministers, and dictators use advisers and countless bureaucrats to develop and spread their policies across the land. The main channels may facilitate wider, faster flows than the smaller ones, but all are necessary to bath the entire area with the current."

New presentation on gamification. You can view, download, and share the slides here.
There is growing interest in how gamification – application of game design principles in non-gaming contexts – can be used in business. However, academic research and management practice have paid little attention to the challenges of how to best design, implement, manage, and optimize gamification strategies. To advance understanding of gamification, this article defines what it is and explains how it is prompting managers to think about busines...

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.
