Using a 360 survey can help make the work place a peaceful environment. When working in large companies issues can go unnoticed and can develop into larger problems because they are not being addressed. By taking frequent surveys these problems can be caught and solved quickly.
When a supervisor finds that his department may not be running as smoothly as hoped for it may be time to pull out the 360 review. By asking all the employees that are members of the department to participate and also having members of higher management to participate and the supervisor themselves should take the survey.Read More
New NASA Map Reveals Patterns Of Tropical Forest Carbon Storage
WASHINGTON — A NASA-led research team has used a variety of NASA satellite data to create the most precise map ever produced depicting the amount and location of carbon stored in Earth’s tropical forests. The data are expected to provide a baseline for ongoing carbon monitoring and research and serve as a useful resource for managing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
The new map, created from ground- and space-based data, shows for the first time the distribution of carbon stored in forests across more than 75 tropical countries. Most of that carbon is stored in the extensive forests of Latin America.
“This is a benchmark map that can be used as a basis for comparison in the future when the forest cover and its carbon stock change,” said Sassan Saatchi of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., who led the research. “The map shows not only the amount of carbon stored in the forest, but also the accuracy of the estimate.” The study was published May 30 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Read More
It’s hard to believe that in the last eight years, no real progress was made on the advance of stem cell research. Preliminary tests and experiments have already shown what amazing things can be done with stem cells if given the chance. From repairing someone’s central nervous system to regrowing organs for transplant, the subject truly does seem like it is straight out of a science fiction movie from the future.
Although the technology is still in its most premature form, stem cells have the potential to become one of the most important aspects of the medical community. The possibilities seem to know no bounds and could repair an astounding number of people who suffer from injuries and conditions that there are no known cures for.Read More
Watch this video about what the world will be like in 2030. Are we on our way?
Space tourism is a term employed to mean ordinary people purchasing tickets for travelling to and from the space. A lot of people find this notion fascinating. A huge number of professional studies have been carried out on the subject in recent years. It’s currently clear that set up of commercial space tourism is a real target for business.
The first step will be short-orbital fights because they are easier as compared to getting to orbit. However, the technical knowledge for making orbiting hotel accommodation and passenger launch vehicles is available, and there is a huge unsatisfied demand. Market researchers have shown that a lot of people majorly in advanced economies would welcome a trip to space if there is a possibility. This provides a large scope for minimizing space travel costs by large-scale operations such as airlines. The major obstacle is conservatism of the industry presently.Read More

History and activities of the futures discovery group
Most people in the world today would pay a fortune to discover what if anything the future can unlock for them. Many have consulted fortunetellers while others dive into spirituality in a quest to uncover the future. Despite all this, people are still disillusioned while others have decided to work with what they can see here and now. Futures discovery group may provide the answers to these questions.Read More
Choosing the best smartphone for business requires a great deal of consideration. A business owner will want to choose a device that enhances his or her productivity. An owner should be able to complete a majority of the same tasks on the smartphone as he or she can complete on a desktop terminal. The key is to find something almost identical to a full-fledged unit, but small enough to carry around to various locations. Before any businessperson chooses a smartphone device, he or she should consider several features.Read More
We know no one’s hanging out around the house anymore nowadays. Everyone’s active, but so is your satellite. In a way, you’re the satellite with the way streaming has gone from the hands of Internet based outlets to satellite programming providers.
Satellite media isn’t making a comeback, it’s already taken over the way people get their information on the go with outlets like http://www.direct.tv/ delivering content to mobile devices on command. Now, anyone can get their programming fix at anytime and anyplace.
Who needs to stream a viral video when you can stream your favorite movie or TV show? How about that football game you don’t want to miss that just so happens to be on at the same time as the neighbor kid’s birthday? If the party’s not streaming to your hand held mobile device the game sure is.Read More
The Solar System consists of the Sun and those celestial objects bound to it by gravity, all of which were formed from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago. Of the many objects that orbit the Sun, most of the mass is contained within eight relatively solitary planets[e] whose orbits
are almost circular and lie within a nearly flat disc called the ecliptic plane. The four smaller inner planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, also called the terrestrial planets, are primarily composed of rock and metal. The four outer planets, the gas giants, are substantially more massive than the terrestrials. The two largest, Jupiter and Saturn, are composed mainly of hydrogen and helium; the two outermost planets, Uranus and Neptune, are composed largely of ices, such as water, ammonia and methane, and are often referred to separately as “ice giants”.Read More
