Greenpeace reveals Indonesia's forests at risk as multiple companies claim rights to same land​
Collusion between private sector and government exacerbating problems, says corruption official. Indonesia’s palm oil, mining and logging industries are enmeshed in a cat’s cradle of overlapping land claims and corruption that are hampering attempts to stop deforestation and fires, newly released maps reveal. [...] many officials exchange land rights to raise money for election campaigns or to curry influence with powerful business owners, and bribes for concessions are commonplace. &!

TTIP bringt Rekordzahl von Gegnern auf die Straße
&! - TTIP hat aber noch eine ganz andere Dimension. Es verfestigt den Ansatz der westlichen Welt als Closed Shop. Damit wird die Kluft gegenüber Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländern verstärkt, die nicht nur bei diesem Abkommen außen vor bleiben. Das ist gerade angesichts der aktuellen „Flüchtlingskrise“ ein Ansatz den man überdenken sollte. Wer Fluchtursachen bekämpfen und die Situation in den Heimatländern der Flüchtlinge verbessern will, kann nicht gleichzeitig Abkommen wie TTIP befürworten. Vielmehr müssen wir den Blick auf eine gerechtere Weltordnung richten und genau dafür steht TTIP nicht.

Cancer virus discovery helped by delayed flight - BBC News
Epstein Barr virus // Wikipedia - It is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis (glandular fever). It is also associated with particular forms of cancer, such as Hodgkin's lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma, gastric cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and conditions associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), such as hairy leukoplakia and central nervous system lymphomas. There is evidence that infection with EBV is associated with a higher risk of certain autoimmune diseases, especially dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. Some 200,000 cancer cases per year are thought to be attributable to EBV. //&! //&! Multiple Sclerosis and Autoimmune Diseases: The Impact of Diet - John McDougall, MD - - ITS THE FOOD!

Recorded Webinar: The Dietary Treatment of Cancer - YouTube
High-fat high-protein diets promote cancer. even vegetable fats. and both together is great environment for tumors. // thus 80/10/10 started by Doug Graham. and supported by T Collin Campbell in Whole to focus 80/10/10 macros in a Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet. // But Dr Greger also showed / talked about one study in his videos, that even people threatened with death, are unlikely to change their diet, even if recommended by their treating physician. It's a case by case. Patient Compliance. WHY? Because people grew und and still live in an environment that is rigged against their health.

VC Stewart Alsop: How I pissed off Steve Jobs - YouTube
Steve Job's last big gig was designing and figuring out the Apple TV, where TV is an app and the Device, what is known as TV is a super-size iMac. A Personal Computer. Plus they probably will make the iPad and Apple TV / iTV connect to each other so you can use the iPas and iPhone as 2nd Screen and do social media and surfing and sharing while watching TV. // Google acquisition of Nest Lab is also talent acquisition - Tony Fadell - a former Apple Execs. But he is a Product Guy and those are valuable, and Apple competed with Google for Nest Labs and thus Tony Fadell. Larry Page needs Fadell to improve Google's product line and future products and teach other Googlers 'product development, management and how to think about it correctly.' >> Android, Nexus, Google Chrome, Google Glasses, Google Car, Google ChromeCast. The big things that bring in the money. // // bn dollar companies have an asshole at their helm, that one that steps on people to get his way, get things done, rolling.

How Facebook May Save Elevation Partners
And then, there’s Palm again. It’s 20% of the fund and has the ability to make or break it. Back in October when Palm was trading at $18 a share, Elevation had one of the best IRRs in the business. Palm isn’t looking good in the smart phone wars thanks to some crucial execution mistakes when there was already little room for error. These mistakes include announcing the Pre months before it was available, launching with Sprint and botching its Verizon roll-out. Not exactly inspiring moves for a company making its comeback.

That said, the idea that Palm will go to zero being pushed by some of the many people shorting the stock is a stretch. The company has six quarters of revenue in the bank and even if it cant compete in the smart phone market, it’s an easy acquisition target. Palms strength has always been its software, and that’s the precise weakness of most handset vendors who aren’t named Apple. Will Palm be the win Elevation was hoping for? No. But that doesnt mean it’s worthless.
