The #health #film that health #organizations don't want you to see!
A #surprising, and at times #hilarious, #investigative #documentary that will be an #eye-opener for everyone concerned about a nation’s health and how #big #business #influences it.’

2016 may not have been the year of the #Linux desktop, but it surely is the year of #FOSS umbrella #organizations. It is an odd coincidence that at the same time three so different organizations have popped up in #Europe:

Three new FOSS umbrella organizations in Europe

Last year, three new umbrella organizations for free and open-source
software (and hardware) projects emerged in Europe. Their aim is to
cater to the needs of the community by providing a legal entity for
projects to join, leaving the projects free to focus on technical and community
tasks. These organizations
(Public Software CIC, [The Commons Conservancy],
and the Center for the Cultivation of Technology)
will take on the overhead of actually running a
legal entity themselves.

This #map uses #opensource #data, curated by the #CarterCenter and integrated and analyzed in #Palantir, to show how the #conflict in #Syria has evolved over #time.

Learn more about the Syria Conflict #Mapping #Project and the Carter Center's data-driven approach to supporting humanitarian #organizations and #mediators.

This is a great #source to get an #overview about the conflict. The contrast between the time the data starts and ends is pretty impressive (the so called #IS, #IslamicState shrank down immensly).

#Organizations are often run according to “the superchicken model,” where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn’t what drives the most high-achieving teams. #Business #leader #MargaretHeffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every #coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results. It's a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader. Because as #Heffernan points out: “Companies don’t have ideas. Only people do.”

It basically consists of a combination of democracy and meritocracy. Democracy in order to maximize the participation of all members. Meritocracy in order to give those who do a better job and have a better history of conduct more weight in decisions (aiming at excellence and seeking to avoid destructive behavior). As a result of this combination, each member will have a "karma" or “rating” in each department or team of the organization, which means that members will have more or less vote weigh... mehr anzeigen

Stopwar: Exposed: Stop the War Coalition is target of US program to track and kill activists

Despite the claim the program is focusing on Muslim extremism, included on the Pentagon-funded list are non-Muslim organizations oppositional to US and British foreign policies. There is a error in this exposure of the Pentagon program to track activists. The Stop the War Coalition is not and never has been run by the Socialist Workers' Party (SWP).
