"INK MASTER" Lesson in Feminist Strategy

 "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?
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"
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?

"Meaningful Silence"
SARAH ÀLAINN AT TEDXUTOKYO



Each of us holds a vision shaped by experiences. Our experiences, indelible, personal, and vivid, change the vision of the present, of the past, and for the future. It is those experiences that develop that vision into something more tangible. Because it’s not what vision is, but what vision does.


Sarah Àlainn explains in this amazing talk the importance of "meaningful silence", which is often neglected in our daily life. Silence is not just "non-existence" of sound, but it can also be an essential part of music or any piece of art that brings us a hightened aethetic experience. Sydney raised, Japan based multi-instrumental artist and singer Sarah Àlainn has been making waves over in the Japanese music scene.
