"George Michael: 20 Essential Songs"



 MUSIC & CREATIVITY

BY Christopher R. Weingarten et al. via Rolling Stone


George Michael, was an English singer, songwriter, and record producer who rose to fame as a member of the music duo Wham! He was best known for his work in the 1980s and 1990s; and sold more than 100 million records worldwide. In the early hours of 25 December 2016, Michael, aged 53, was found dead in bed at his Oxfordshire home.The best of the pop icon's hits, duets and reinventions... Revisit 20 essential George Michael songs, from his days in Wham! to his late-period dance singles.


Following his early-Eighties breakthrough with Wham!, George Michael swiftly transitioned from teenage pretty boy to outspoken pop force. "I think it says something for the power of the music," he told Rolling Stone after the release of his smash 1987 solo debut, Faith, "that I've managed to change the perception of what I do to the degree that I have in this short a time. Because it's something that a lot of people thought wasn't possible." In the years that followed, the singer-songwriter would go on to collaborate with idols such as Aretha Franklin and Elton John, and confront social and sexual taboos in increasingly bold fashion on four Number One albums and a lengthy string of Top 10 singles. Here are 20 of the Michael's best, from Wham!'s breakthrough up through his final U.S. hit.

  CREATIVITY & LIFE

  DAN GILBERT AT TED TALKS




Dan Gilbert, author of "Stumbling on Happiness," challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our "psychological immune system" lets us feel truly happy even when things don’t go as planned.

Harvard psychologist Dan Gilbert says our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong — a premise he supports with intriguing research, and explains in his accessible and unexpectedly funny book, Stumbling on Happiness. Dan Gilbert  asks why are we happy? Watch now this great talk...

"INK MASTER" Lesson in Feminist Strategy




CULTURE & DISRUPT
 "INK  MASTER"
Lesson in Feminist Strategy
BY EMILY DREYFUSS VIA WIRED.COM


HOW INK MASTER BECAME AN UNEXPECTED LESSON IN FEMINIST STRATEGY: America didn’t get its first woman president this year. That title went to a reality TV star instead. But on reality TV tonight, odds are that America will get its first woman Ink Master—contestants Kelly Doty and Ryan Ashley Malarkey are two of the three finalists. And if it happens, it will very likely be because the women on the show took a hint from the Obama administration.

 
This season #INKMASTER went from TV’s most masculine reality shows to the home of a Feminist uprising... The women on the Spike TV show formed an alliance that systematically worked to highlight each other’s strengths and pack the finale with as many women as possible. It was an example of “amplification,” which holds that women can help each other’s voices be heard in masculine environments by supporting and highlighting each other. The tactic recently made headlines when the women of President Obama’s cabinet told the world they employed it to have their voices heard in the White House. Ironically, that kind of amplification was exactly what Hillary Clinton didn’t receive. READ FULL ARTICLE VIA WIRED.COM

"Synthetic Photosynthesis?"

 
 
SCIENCE & DISRUPT
Synthetic Photosynthesis?
BY DOM GALEONSARAH VIA FUTURISM.COM

 New Tech Recycles Carbon Dioxide Faster Than Plants...   A team of researchers managed to make a synthetic pathway that converts CO2 into organic compounds faster than plants.  In order to find an enzyme to improve CO2 fixation, the researchers carefully selected 17 enzymatic compounds from nine organisms.

Everyone knows the role of photosynthesis in absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2). While there isn’t any doubt that plants are doing their job, there’s simply just too much CO2 for the plants to absorb and “fix.” Plus a main enzyme involved in the process doesn’t work that fast. A team of researchers led by Thomas Schwander may be able to help.

"8 Definiciones de Innovación Social"





CREATIVITY & DISRUPT
"8 Definiciones de Innovación Social"
POR CAMILA ORTEGA VIA YOUNGMARKETING.CO

social-innovationLa innovación social ha dejado de ser una alternativa para convertirse en una prioridad en la agenda de fundaciones, organizaciones y compañías. La integración de la innovación, la tecnología y la detección y solución de problemáticas sociales han permitido mejorar la calidad de vida de cientos de personas alrededor del mundo, gracias al desarrollo de proyectos que son sostenibles en el tiempo, que no solo se preocupan por ‘apagar incendios’, sino que además tienen el potencial de transformar la cultura de una comunidad e incluso una ciudad completa en el futuro.

 
De acuerdo con la Stanford Graduate School of Business "Innovación Social" es una solución nueva a un problema social la cual es más efectiva, eficiente, sustentable o justa que la solución actual cuyo valor agregado aporta principalmente a la sociedad como un todo en lugar de únicamente a los individuos. Para Murray et. al. 2008, innovación social se define como nuevas ideas (productos, servicios y modelos) que simultáneamente satisface necesidades sociales y crean nuevas relaciones de colaboración.  Pero estas definiciones no solo se oyen muy técnicas y académicas, sino que carecen de esa pasión y calle que tienen los emprendedores sociales que buscan
cambiar al mundo, impactando positivamente a la sociedad y al medio ambiente...   Por eso en este articulo 8 relevantes innovadores sociales de América nos responden  la pregunta :   ¿QUE ES LA INNOVACIÓN SOCIAL?
