Warning: your festive meal could be more damaging than a long-haul flight | George Monbiot | Opinion | The Guardian
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/meat-industry - A kilogramme of beef protein reared on a British hill farm can generate the equivalent of 643kg of carbon dioxide. A kilogramme of lamb protein produced in the same place can generate 749kg. One kilo of protein from either source, in other words, causes more greenhouse gas emissions than a passenger flying from London to New York. //&! http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/23/eat-less-red-meat-and-cycle-more-for-your-and-the-planets-health // [...] I’m not suggesting that you eat no meat or other animal products.

Drought - Bloomberg QuickTake
Thirsty Brazilians are drilling through their basements for water. Iran is short of water from border to border as its lakes and wetlands shrink. Taiwanese chipmakers are searching for alternate water supplies as cities there struggle against a record drought. Droughts in China, India and South Africa have power producers and beverage makers interrupting operations or facing protesters saying don’t take our water. Overpumping in places like California’s Central Valley and the Great Plains’ Ogallala basin has depleted some of the world’s biggest aquifers. Water played a role in instigating civil war in Syria, and scientists suggest that Yemen could collapse as a state over an even more serious lack of water. Egypt and Ethiopia have long bickered over shared Nile River water, while the only thing that Iraq and ISIS agree on is that Turkey is storing too much water from the Euphrates River. Quality is also a vast concern: ...

Food production shocks 'will happen more often because of extreme weather' | Environment | The Guardian
Poorer countries will be hit most by falls in production for major crops but UK and and US will also be exposed to resulting instability, says taskforce [...] [ 5-7% of production shortfall of main staples ] Such a shortfall in production could leave people in developing countries in “an almost untenable position”, with the US and the UK “very much exposed” to the resulting instability and conflict, said co-author Rob Bailey, research director for energy, environment and resources at Chatham House. [...] “The food system is increasingly under pressure because demand is growing and our ability to supply it is much more constrained. On top of that we have climate change affecting where we can grow things. “If we are coping with demand increases by sustainable intensification but then suddenly we have a catastrophic year and lose a significant chunk of the world’s calories, everybody will feel it.” [ global and national security threat ] &! bbc.in/1IQl3ZS

Students 'cannot multi-task with mobiles and study' - BBC News
Researchers found that students sending and receiving messages while studying scored lower test results and were less effective at tasks such as note taking. The study examined how a generation of "voracious texters" might be affected by so many online distractions. It found that when students did not use mobiles, they were better at being able to recall information. [...] The study, Mobile Phones in the Classroom: Examining the Effects of Texting, Twitter, and Message Content on Student Learning, carried out a series of tests with 145 undergraduates. [...] "It is a common occurrence to observe students who are physically present, yet mentally preoccupied by non-course-related material on their mobile devices. "As mobile devices have deeply saturated the college student population, this problem will likely continue to pose a significant obstacle," says the study, by Jeffrey Kuznekoff, Stevie Munz and Scott Titsworth. // life hack = focus 100% without distractions, opp for procrasti

Don’t stop showering, California. Just lay off the burgers & nuts. — Medium
farming in that climate zone with that little water resources. = bad long-term. // https://www.facebook.com/RBReich/posts/979019875443942 - Why did Governor Jerry Brown exempt Big Oil and Big Agriculture from his order this week to cut water consumption by 25 percent? Big Oil uses more than 2 million gallons of fresh water a day in California for fracking, acidizing, and steam injections – nearly 70 million gallons last year alone. Meanwhile, California’s farmers consume 80 percent of the water used in the state and generate only 2 percent of the state’s economic activity. Oddly, the Governor’s order focuses on urban water use, which makes up less than a quarter of the water consumed here. California could save the same amount of water by requiring its farmers to increase water efficiency by 5 percent. & facebook.com/naomi.wolf.author/posts/10153185815179476 &! spiegel.de/fotostrecke/rekord-duerre-kalifornien-muss-wasser-sparen-fotostrecke-125389-10.html

California has about one year of water left | Hacker News
As difficult as it may be to face, the simple fact is that California is running out of water — and the problem started before our current drought. NASA data reveal that total water storage in California has been in steady decline since at least 2002, when satellite-based monitoring began, although groundwater depletion has been going on since the early 20th century. How was Exide allowed to pollute for so long and endanger so many people? How was Exide allowed to pollute for so long and endanger so many people? Right now the state has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought like this one (let alone a 20-plus-year mega-drought), except, apparently, staying in emergency mode and praying for rain. &! bit.ly/1xlusTL - California Is Drilling for Water That Fell to Earth 20,000 Years Ago &! bit.ly/1GUZuXy

How Uber’s Autonomous Cars Will Destroy 10 Million Jobs And Reshape The Economy by 2025 « CBS San Francisco
[The 2nd Industrial Revolution enabled by Moore's Law from 2000-2030/50: autonomous cars, software eats the world, marketplaces, share economy, automation, robotics, AI/augmented reality, local - just in time manufacturing via 3D printing, renewable energy and 100% recycling of everything.] The transition is already beginning to happen. Elon Musk, Tesla Motor’s CEO, says that their 2015 models will be able to self-drive 90 percent of the time.1 And the major automakers aren’t far behind – according to Bloomberg News, GM’s 2017 models will feature “technology that takes control of steering, acceleration and braking at highway speeds of 70 miles per hour or in stop-and-go congested traffic.”2 Both Google3 and Tesla4 predict that fully-autonomous cars – what Musk describes as “true autonomous driving where you could literally get in the car, go to sleep and wake up at your destination” – will be available to the public by 2020.

If you must eat meat, save it for Christmas | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian
From chickens pumped with antibiotics to the environmental devastation caused by production, we need to realise we are not fed with happy farm animals // George Monbiot admits he got it wrong to soften his position on meat-eating a few years ago. Whilst he is still not quite calling for the world to go vegan (yet!), he does highlight the utter madness of our meat-obsessed culture and the negative effect it has on animals, ourselves and the world around us.

NASA: We're sending humans to Mars | Hacker News
It's not a matter of public/private indeed, it's a matter of size. The bigger an organization, the more dis-aligned individual and collective incentives become. In a start-up you can't afford to harm the enterprise in order to further your own interest: if you act parasitically you'll kill your host almost immediately. In a big company, you won't make a meaningful difference, neither positively nor negatively, so you may as well serve your own interests, irrespective of their effect on the whole company. Corollary: people who want to play corporate politics concentrate in big companies, because that's where you can do it with relative impunity. Big private companies offset this competitive disadvantage through economy of scales and/or lobbying; public services do it through taxes and monopolies. NASA isn't inefficient because it's public, but because it's huge. // &! on a different note. improving NHS by managed market approach!? offering choice = competition, w care&quality standards.

Marketplaces Are Eating Firms | TechCrunch
The simple reason for this cost savings is the reduction in overhead. Freelance labor marketplaces don’t have middle layers of managers and other support staff, they have independent contractors rather than employees, and they don’t have the cost of office space. The cost savings are dramatic. Turnaround time and quality are also key service attributes that marketplaces are providing. Uber is the greatest example of a marketplace delivering a step change improvement in turnaround time. With scale, marketplaces have the ability to understand supply and demand and ensure that the right resources are available at the right time. All of this can be done automatically in marketplaces versus manually in firms. [...] I believe the top firms in any industry will continue to thrive for decades to come, but there will be an overall shrinking of the bottom and middle tiers of firms as they yield to well-run marketplaces. - bit.ly/1tppJx3

Uber Hires Uber-Lobbyist For European Expansion - Digits - WSJ
The company hired Mark MacGann, the former head of government affairs and public advocacy for exchange group NYSE Euronext in Brussels. MacGann updated his LinkedIn profile to include the new job, and confirmed the appointment in a message to the Journal. MacGann, a 20-year lobbying veteran, has been appointed head of public policy for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He left NYSE Euronext in May after four years at the firm. MacGann’s appointment comes after Uber hired David Plouffe, a key strategist behind president Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns. The firm’s chief executive Travis Kalanick said in a blog post in August that Plouffe had been hired to oversee global policy, communications and branding at Uber.

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.

Thumbtack is an online marketplace that helps connect all types of local service providers — think painters, wedding photographers, plumbers, tutors, therapists, and more — with potential clients. It works like this: People in need of a service provider provide Thumbtack with a summary of the work they need done or the type of service they’re looking for. Thumbtack then analyzes that request, and sources relevant local service providers who can then provide bids on the project. Thumbtack makes money by charging service providers a small fee for each bid. >> [Amazon is launching same offering, and Thumptack is a vertical for Google Search. Period. Just like indeed.com is a Vertical Search for Jobs than one could also do on a GENERALISED search engine like Google. Search is about knowing what to look for, key words. What is when the user doesn't know the keywords for things he is looking for? Shazam!]

Wenn in Ländern wie Indien die aufstrebende Mittelschicht ihre Ernährung auf Non-Veg umstellt und damit der westlich inspirierte Fleischkonsum so populär wird wie es in Deutschland derzeit der Fleischverzicht ist, was ist dann gewonnen? Der Autor des TAZ-Artikels konstatiert:"Aber wer sich besser ernähren und eine Welt fördern will, in der Tiere weniger leiden müssen, darf es nur als ersten Schritt betrachten, wenn er kein Fleisch mehr auf den Teller legt. Wenn das nachhaltig bleiben soll, dann führt leider kein Weg an einem Veganismus vorbei, der politisch gedacht wird und über den eigenen Tellerrand hinausgeht"

Bill Gurley schools NYU professor: Uber will be 25x bigger than you think | PandoDaily
[ + long tail use cases and cases that seem in retrospect obvious but currently are foggy (ie owning a car in the city for ppl a luxury good), car ownership deemed inefficient/waste of money; when car is used only ~5% during the day and there are clearly cheaper and if not even more convenient options of daily transportation on offer. ] Gurley, who is one of the smartest and most articulate figures in all of venture capital (and who just happens to be an early Uber investor and board member) laid out a more than 4,500-word argument for why Damodaran underestimated the Uber opportunity by no less than a factor of 25. The Benchmark Capital partner was diplomatic, apologetic even, but that made his dismantling of the professor’s reasoning no less thorough.

Commentary: Uber’s $18.2B Valuation Is a Head Scratcher - Digits - WSJ
That’s a worthy mission, but the wrinkle is that Uber is entering what is essentially a frictionless market (for both drivers and riders) in which its services are a commodity. The company’s phenomenal growth so far (we don’t know the actual numbers, but doubling in revenue every 6 months is what Kalanick claims) has been built on the back of low-hanging fruit — expansion into new cities, particularly where taxi availability is low — and levels of dissatisfaction among taxi drivers that may be temporal. (When I asked drivers who had a particular loyalty to Lyft why they liked the company, they said they felt it treated them better in general.) In both respects, Uber’s growth is reminiscent of Groupon, and we know what happened to them.

Net Neutrality and the Idea of America : The New Yorker
In “The Frontier in American History,” the historian Frederick Jackson Turner argued that it was frontiers that created the essential aspects of American democracy. Life on the frontier, he wrote, was what developed “the courageous determination to break new paths” and “indifference to the dogma that because an institution or a condition exists, it must remain.” The debate over net neutrality, by this reckoning, is a classic debate over the closing of a frontier. The fear is that industrial consolidation, as it has before, will diminish opportunities for the new, idealistic, and optimistic, leaving behind the established, tested, and cynical. It would be the lapse into plutocracy that Turner and others feared.

Franchise redux: The professionalization of the sharing economy has deep implications | PandoDaily
But for all Airbnb and Uber’s much deserved “disruptive” acclaim, these businesses have older roots than the hype cycle suggests. According to conventional wisdom, Airbnb and Uber enable “regular individuals” to make a few extra bucks renting out an extra bedroom or giving fellow travelers a ride. They unlock a new class of assets, where fellow consumers share in collaborative consumption. In fact, while these businesses nailed rapidly changing consumer preferences  –  buying services at time of usage, rather than owning assets fits the post-recession, Millennial sensibility of the moment –  the supply side of their businesses does not match the narrative. Supply in these marketplaces is increasingly delivered by entrepreneurial, small business owners, not fellow consumers. Uber and Airbnb are best understood as reimagined franchise operations that leverage mobile data, the social graph, and continuous feedback loops to deliver a better consumer experience.

As a cherry on top, it slashed its rates 20 percent in all markets after wrapping up the Series D.
