Probation service: Offender supervision to be renationalised - BBC News
The supervision of all offenders on probation in England and Wales is being put back in the public sector after a series of failings with the part-privatisation of the system.

It reverses changes made in 2014 by then Justice Secretary Chris Grayling. The National Audit Office said problems with the part-privatisation had cost taxpayers nearly £500m.

Learning disability 'trapped' in hospitals as NHS target missed - BBC News
Figures for March show that there are at least 2,260 people with learning disabilities or autism staying in hospitals in England - most for around two years, with half being kept in secure wards. [...] But charity Mencap said "hundreds of people with a learning disability who should have been living in the community are still trapped in in-patient settings".

The charity said families were often powerless to get them out and people could be locked up for years on end, instead of being supported in their communities.

'Fat but fit is a big fat myth' - BBC News
[ the thing is, the body is constantly fight - inflamation and immune system, there comes a time in a bodies life when it will give up and cruble under the pressure of ill diet and lifestyle ] They say people who were obese but who had no initial signs of heart disease, diabetes or high cholesterol were not protected from ill health in later life, contradicting previous research.
A summary of their study was discussed at the European Congress on Obesity.
The term "fat but fit" refers to the alluring theory that if people are obese but all their other metabolic factors such as blood pressure and blood sugar are within recommended limits then the extra weight will not be harmful. [...] They found these people who were obese but "metabolically healthy" were at higher risk of developing heart disease, strokes and heart failure than people of normal weight.

Bluthochdruck: Immer mehr Kinder betroffen - Übergewicht die Ursache - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Wir können in westlichen Ländern eine deutliche Zunahme an erhöhten Blutdruckwerten bei übergewichtigen Kindern feststellen" [...] Zwar habe es schon immer Kinder mit einem erhöhten Blutdruck gegeben, etwa aufgrund einer Nierenerkrankung, erklärt Dalla Pozza. Seit einigen Jahren aber kämen immer mehr übergewichtige Kinder wegen höherer Blutdruckwerte zum Kinderkardiologen. Um die gefährliche Entwicklung zu stoppen, müssten vor allem Übergewicht und Fettsucht reduziert werden. [...] [ Spaetfolgen ... Nierenversagen ]

We have entered a new era of conflict, warns new book
In his new book, Irregular War (IB Tauris) , he reflects on Isis, al-Qaida, Boko Haram, Al Shabab, and the Taliban - all separate manifestations, he says, of a new non-state dynamic driving international conflict through asymmetric and hybrid warfare. But their significance is more fundamental. They are part of what Rogers calls “an historical shift towards revolts from the margins”. And such revolts are made more likely by “the widening global socio-economic divide and the onset of climate disruption”. [...] The causes of conflict are many and deep – economic, political, societal, environmental, demographic. [...] “the increasing marginalisation of the majority of the world’s people caused by the workings of the neo-liberal system of international economic activity” which concentrates most of the fruits of economic growth in the hands of a transglobal elite of some 1.5bn people.

Study: Heart attack patients getting younger, fatter
Despite greater awareness of risk factors for heart disease and the need for healthy lifestyle changes, heart attack patients are becoming younger and more obese, according to new research from the Cleveland Clinic. // Google Info Box - The risk of heart attack increases steadily for men after age 45, and the average age of a man having his first heart attack is about 66. About 565,000 men are expected to suffer a heart attack in 2009. Nearly half of those younger than 65 years old who have a heart attack will die within eight years. (7 Dec 2012) // nbcnews.to/1obb39f

Tribe Called Quest star Phife Dawg dies aged 45
The musician had been struggling with ill health and diabetes for several years, and received a kidney transplant from his wife in 2008. [...] News of Phife Dawg's death emerged on Twitter, where producer and broadcaster DJ Chuck Chillout posted an RIP message in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Rolling Stone magazine later confirmed his death, although an official statement has yet to be released. [...] Following the group's dissolution, Phife continued to battle diabetes, reuniting with the group for occasional live shows - partly to help cover the medical costs of his type 2 diabetes (often mis-reported as type 1).
He suffered renal failure in 2008 and received a transplant from his wife - but was back on the waiting list for a kidney four years later. [...] "It's really a sickness," [...] "Like straight-up drugs. I'm just addicted to sugar."

'Groundbreaking' operation to replace woman's heart valves - BBC News
[ premature heart failure, non-congenital/genetic ] A woman who had all four of her heart valves replaced in a "groundbreaking" operation says she know wants to pack in as much as she can. Angela Gardner, 55, from Appleby, in Cumbria, had the operation - which is described as "exceptionally rare" at Newcastle's Freeman Hospital. The operation took eight hours and Professor Stephen Clark said he believed only four cases of this kind had been carried out in the world before. She still has a rare form of terminal cancer, but says the operation has given her more time, possibly another five years, to spend with her five children. //&! high demand overshooting planned resources and services ie Wales - bbc.in/1Qw07dF - not just Wales.

Bubble Machine Timeline: Visual Evidence Of The Fed's "Third Mandate" | Zero Hedge
The problem with rushing to combat any sign of economic or financial market turmoil by resorting immediately to counter-cyclical policies is that the creative destruction that would normally serve to purge speculative excess isn’t allowed to operate and so, misallocated capital is allowed to linger from crisis to crisis, making the next boom and subsequent bust even larger than the last.

The more you pursue happiness, the faster it runs from you | Zach Stafford | Comment is free | The Guardian
Psychologist Iris Mauss at the University of California, Berkley found that the pursuit of happiness might just leave you worse off. “Wanting to be happy can make you less happy,” said Mauss in an interview with livescience.com. “If you explicitly and purposely focus on happiness, that appears to have a self-defeating quality.” [...] In her studies, participants who were not happy would begin blaming themselves for feeling sad. They thought it was an immediate flag for their failure, making these negative feelings even more counter-productive. The people who accepted these negative feelings as normal, however, were much happier in the long run. So, accepting your sadness could actually make you feel good. [...] For Darwin, emotions were very much tied to surviving, which requires more than just happiness. [...] Be open about how you’re feeling, don’t try to hide behind it or conceal it. // &! keeping a diary talking to and about yourself compassionately.

Five years, building a culture, and handing it off. - Laughing Meme
Nothing we know [ about X ] should be assumed to be true. // Technology is the product of the culture that builds it. // If you want to build for the long term, the only guarantee is change. Invest in your people and your ability to ask questions, not your current answers. Your current answers are wrong, or they will be soon. // Software development should be thought of as a cycle of continual learning and improvement rather a progression from start to finish, or a search for correctness. If you aren’t shipping, you aren’t learning. If it slows down shipping, it probably isn’t worth it. Maturity is knowing when to make the trade off and when not to. // You build a culture of learning by optimizing globally not locally. Your improvement, over time, as a team, with shared tools, practices and beliefs is more important than individual pockets of brilliance. And more satisfying.

Survivors | Bothsides of the Table
Failure. To most people it smells. People are afraid of it. It’s like cancer or divorce. When you have it you find you who your true friends are because they’re the ones who double down on helping, on being available, on listening, on understanding. Most people run from failure or disease because they’re hard to handle. Hard to know how to deal with. Awkward. But I am attracted to those who have had severe set-backs in life because it tells you something about the mettle of the person with whom you’re dealing. It reminds me of a famous quote in one of my favorite novel’s “Damage” by Josephine Hart “Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.” [...] closed up shop at the very first hurdle. I wouldn’t work with him again. [...] Honor is what I’m looking for. How you failed is significantly more important than if you failed.

Pando: A good problem to have: Andy Dunn and Phil Libin talk about the difficult decision to fire themselves
At the beginning of your company when you are always a couple of months away from going out of business and every crisis is an existential crisis, because all you’re trying to do is optimize for staying alive. That is the happiest and simplest time in your company… everything else is in the good problem to have category, which is like “Good news, you’re kind of successful that’s why you’re having it. Bad news is it’s more stressful than anything else before.” &! As a founder your instinct is to put something new in the world... you start a company because you are irreverent. You start a company because you want to create something out of nowhere, and the paradox is that if you are successful with that, and then a job evolves from an act of creativity and irreverence. Focus and execution and scaling become equally important as [creativity and irreverence]. You have to ask yourself am I a fit for what the job requires?

Anti-Angel-Gesetz: Auch die CDU schießt gegen Schäubles Pläne | Gründerszene
Die Lage ist schon jetzt nicht rosig. Die Zahl der Unternehmensgründungen geht zurück – die Liquidationen übersteigen bereits seit 2012 die Neugründungen. Zudem sind die Wagniskapital-Investitionen rückläufig. „Die wenigen Risikokapitalgeber jetzt zusätzlich durch drohende Gewinnbesteuerungen von einer möglichen Investition abzuschrecken, ist äußerst kontraproduktiv“, [...] Das Finanzministerium verteidigt sich. Bei der Reform gehe es darum, ein Steuerschlupfloch zu stopfen, das durch Änderungen bei der Dividendenbesteuerung im Jahr 2013 entstanden sei. Außerdem gebe es weiterhin einen Steuernachlass für Investoren in Startups. [ ja und die grossen konzerne? ] [...] Um den Startup-Standort Deutschland attraktiver zu machen, fordert der CDU-Wirtschaftsrat eine Etablierung von Wachstumsfonds für Startups und einen verbesserten Zugang zu Wagniskapital.

Atari founder Nolan Bushnell on why life is 'a game' - BBC News
After his breakout success in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Mr Bushnell made several missteps that eventually led to some entrepreneurial failures and financial ruin. "When I was 35, I was insufferable. I thought I could do no wrong and I got really sloppy," [...] He chalks the creation of Atari up to a bit of good luck: "I was probably the only electrical engineer that understood television, and understood the coin-operated game business [from the amusement park] in 1969," he says. [...] Mr Bushnell also emphasises that the popularity of Atari's games was primarily due to his ability to find and hire talented, creative workers, including one you may have heard of - Steve Jobs. "I've always valued passionate employees over anything else, [...] But Mr Jobs, like a lot of his earlier employees, had passion and as a result, "was an extremely hard worker". // talks about internal leadership - youtu.be/fxIN9J3Vcv4

Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis says EU deal is a 'new Treaty of Versailles’ | News | The National
THE bailout deal forced upon Greece by its eurozone creditors was dubbed “a new treaty of Versailles” last night by the country’s former finance minister. [...] the deal comes with years of enforced austerity and privatisation of state assets. Yanis Varoufakis, who quit last week after falling out with his European counterparts, spoke of the “politics of humiliation”. He said the lenders were taking revenge on prime minister Alexis Tsipras. “It is an impossible deal,” he added. “A deal that is simply not viable.” [...] “This has nothing to do with economics. It has nothing to do with putting Greece back on the rails towards recovery. This is a new Versailles Treaty that is haunting Europe again, and the prime minister knows it. He knows that he’s damned if he does and he’s damned if he doesn’t.” [...] “It’s not that it didn’t go down well – there was point-blank refusal to engage in economic arguments. Point blank.

risk of failure greater than the chance of success. // Success is not final, failure is not fatal. Courage to move forward, counts. Move every day. None is giving you a free ride/lunch. // achieving 60% of the impossible is better than 100% of the ordinary! // NO TO INCREMENTALISM !!! // there are lots of people that you cant, and we teach conformity and not being a rebel, disruptor & creative. thus we create filters and cynicism. // we are very good at saying no ... no to fear, anxiety, the uncomfortable & the pain (the ability to grow), new experiences, // thus pattern matching. // Failure is not an option. Keep trying till you get it right - figured it out. THE LEARNING CURVE! failure is steepest learning curve (entrepreneurship). Thus everyone needs to be exposed to failure and adopt a growth mindset as child.

Staatsverschuldung als Problem der Generationengerechtigkeit | Lars P. Feld | SWR Tele-Akademie - YouTube
henry paulson and tim geithner said they are in a moral hazard. put it the way to either nationalise (aka the end of American Dream, Failure part of capitalism) or bailout (gov loans and co like TARP). Rather the moral hazard was to either put current and future unborn generation in debt servitude they had nothing to do with and keep criminals private with all its benefits. Or really give a warning shot a privatise banks and end the profligacy of crony capitalism and Wall Streets shareholder value creation only and profit maximisation - without consequences. // and Europe looks towards USA and did the same; made banks whole again (because they were really - TBTF - and would pushed some EU countries into Great Depression/Insolvency. especially France & Belgium where bank liabilities were too big for public balance sheet) and took some of the debt onto its public balance sheet (and gave bailout loans) to be served by current & future unborn generation.

Secret’s death will encourage VCs to make more investments like Secret | PandoDaily
Secret’s collapse is a Harvard Business Case Study in loss mitigation. [...] VC’s are going to start flocking even harder to big-risk-big-reward deals now. Why? Because they aren’t that risky at all any more. Startups that fail quickly may now return as much as 80-90% of their capital to investors. [...] the gravity of Byttow’s decision to return the capital should not be understated. VC’s like Peter Thiel* have long advocated to take the biggest risks possible, noting that a very small percentage of deals return the majority of capital. That argument is now strengthened. So, going forward, I think there could be three major trends that emerge from the Secret story: (1) VC’s are going to start pressuring their struggling portfolio companies to return the capital rather than die a slow, pivot-filled death. (2) This will create more culture of loss mitigation, which will then encourage said VC’s to take more risk with potential breakout hits.

Moonshots (huge problems, radical solutions*, breakthrough technology* = Google X) + maniacal focus of a Start-up. The last two sometimes can create blind spots, miss the obvious. // Don't build lonely MVP's. But don't push it to the press that sees it, and the user, as a finished product. Call it 'Alpha, so jenky.' "You will never get the right answer sitting in a conference room." // Learning from failure is much more data and insight than learning from success, and achieving success without constraints (trust fund kinds (straight white privileged male) out of Stanford working at a unicorn w a 100k-130k pay-check). A Start-up with constraints and inevitable non-death but near death failures is by principle accelerated learning. unComparable experience.

Vinod Khosla (Khosla Ventures) - Accepting Failure - YouTube
willingness to fail, enables the ability to succeed. success matters. failure is inconsequential! yet, people don't do X because they are afraid of failure. fear of failure restricts people what they can do, achieve, is a limiter. most people are limited by what they think they can do, not by what they can do. sure, its not that simple, but it is more true than it is not true. what is the worst case scenario of failure? you go back to a day job with worth of business experience of an MBA. as soon as you accept the willingness to fail - you can start do things, that actually matter. if you dont accept it ie afraid of the heart ache, the bottomless pit in your stomach ... you wont try things that are material. (there are more reasons to do a start-up (or join a young start-up w traction) are overweighting the reasons to stay in your day/corporate job. don't mind failing, but if you succeed - it better be consequential (aim big, impact, affecting peoples life). &! youtu.be/MLtw31CGTHc

Ballet star Tamara Rojo says modern children lack discipline - BBC News
The principal dancer at the English National Ballet says many of today's pupils lack the discipline to succeed. Tamara Rojo told Radio Times magazine that children were often praised for quick results rather than hard work. "We live in a society that rewards fast success based on little talent or commitment, which is transient and a dangerous place to be," she said. "Do we want to promote instant success and instant failure, or do we want to promote self-esteem and hard work?"

Debatte über Germanwings-Absturz: Dem Chaos eine Chance - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Ein ebenso großes Tabu wie das Versagen deutscher Technik ist das Versagen des deutschen Gemüts. Psychische Erkrankungen wie Depressionen oder bipolare Störungen, unter denen offenbar Andreas Lubitz litt, gelten in unserer auf volle Funktionalität geeichten deutschen Gesellschaft als unerträglich. Mögen Zeitschriften und TV-Magazine in letzter Zeit noch so empathisch über Phänomene wie Burn-out berichten - die Realität fällt hinter diesen Erkenntnisstand weit zurück. [...] Wer Fehler macht, wer Schwäche zeigt, gilt als stigmatisiert - er wird zum Sonderling. Im Spätkapitalismus hat längst das Individuum selbst diese Konformisierung vom Staat und von den Unternehmen übernommen; wir sind uns selbst unser größter Schinder. [...] Philosoph Michel Foucault nannte diesen Effekt "Selbsttechnologie": Der Einzelne sieht sich selbst in einer Art Bringschuld gegenüber dem System. [...] Heinz Bude - "Gesellschaft der Angst" [...] Heute denkt man: Ich bin, der ich sein könnte"

BBC Sport - Rory McIlroy: Masters meltdown 'most important day of career'
The 25-year-old Northern Irishman led by four shots going into the last day at Augusta but dropped six in three holes and ended up carding an 80. "I learned so much about myself and what I needed to do the next time I got into that position," he said. [...] And he believes that experience four years ago makes him better equipped to handle the pressure. "If I had not had the whole unravelling, if I had just made a couple of bogeys coming down the stretch and lost by one, I would not have learned as much," added McIlroy in an interview with BBC Sport . "Luckily, it did not take me long to get into a position like that again when I was leading a major and I was able to get over the line quite comfortably. "It was a huge learning curve for me and I needed it, and thankfully I have been able to move on to bigger and better things. "Looking back on what happened in 2011, it doesn't seem as bad when you have four majors on your mantelpiece."

Fehler-Kultur: Angst, einen Fehler zu machen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Generation der 40-Jährigen lähmt sich selbst - aus Angst vor Fehlern. Doch daran ist sie nicht alleine schuld: Die Fehlerkultur in Deutschland ist beängstigend. [...] Soziologe Heinz Bude die Fehlerkultur der Generation um die 40 - er nennt sie "Generation null Fehler". Im Interview mit SPIEGEL ONLINE beschreibt er sie als Perfektionisten, die überall brillieren wollen: In der Familie, in der Beziehung im Beruf. Doch damit überfordern viele sich selbst. Nicht selten führe dieser Weg in die Depression. [...] Er beschreibt in seinem aktuellen Buch "Gesellschaft der Angst" ein Phänomen, das komplexer ist als diese platte Schuldzuweisung. [...] Arbeit spielt für die Gesellschaft eine große Rolle, und es gibt viele Wirtschaftstheoretiker und Praktiker, die in deutschen Unternehmen eine andere Kultur im Umgang mit dem Misslingen fordern. Fehler, so ihr Ausgangspunkt, sind in unserer Wissensgesellschaft ein wichtiger Wettbewerbsfaktor. [...] bit.ly/1s476CP & !!! youtu.be/iKHTawgyKWQ

The Case For Intelligent Failure To Invent The Future | TechCrunch
The future will not be like the past. The future will be built by those who will take risks and action to invent the world they want. [...] Over the years, I have developed great skepticism toward so-called experts and pontificators who seem authoritative in forecasting and create an illusion of knowing based on very little actual expertise. [...] I have experienced the power of doers, the chaotic and naïve world of optimistic entrepreneurs who just try things, admit mistakes, fail, learn, iterate, try again and find solutions – often out of necessity. Accepting, even encouraging, the right kind of failure is the best way to discover the solution to our problems and close the resource gap. Learning by engaging, iterating and persisting, rather than pursuing academic studies or writing papers, seem to be the major drivers of change. [...] The biggest risk we can take is to not take any risks at all. [...] we need the impossible to bridge our resource gap.

Cultural Realities Of Latin American Entrepreneurship | TechCrunch
// In Latin America, the fundamental cultural impediment to creating a sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystem is lack of individual risk-taking. While this is true at the entrepreneurial level, it is not a crucial element due to other factors compensating – primarily the attraction of the Silicon Valley lifestyle. However, this is not true in the investor layer, and thus a crucial piece of the infrastructure – the post-startup financing – is severely underdeveloped. The cultural factors here are clear: lack of comfort with technology, group decision-making, long decision-making cycles, desire for control and severe discomfort with failure result in an anemic investment community.

Deutschland und seine Gründer – ein gestörtes Verhältnis - WSJ Tech - WSJ
Leider aber schwang in der Reportage auch das mit, was in der deutschen Gesellschaft allgemein verbreitet ist: Eine Skepsis gegenüber dem Internet und insbesondere allen, die damit auch noch Geld verdienen wollen. [...] [D]ie etablierte Wirtschaftspresse in Deutschland tut sich häufig noch schwer damit, die Start-up-Ökonomie zu begreifen. Als in einem Artikel über den abflauenden Berliner Start-up-Hype in einem großen deutschen Wirtschaftsmagazin der Satz „Selbst vor Pleiten ist die Berliner Internet-Community nicht mehr gefeit“ fiel, sorgte das in Deutschlands Start-up-Szene für kollektives Kopfschütteln. Pleiten gehören zu jeder Start-up-Ökonomie dazu, ebenso wie große Verluste in der Wachstumsphase. Ohne Pleiten, Risiko und Verluste entstehen weder Googles noch Facebooks. In der ZDF-Reportage war leider auch wieder die Art von deutscher Überskepsis deutlich zu sehen, die mit dazu beiträgt, dass allzu schnell aus Deutschland wohl auch keine Facebooks oder Googles zu erwarten sind.
