advertisement advertisement The year 2012 is not only the Year of the Dragon, it also marks 30 years since In Search of Excellence was published.

They do not need to think before they react; the reaction comes automatically.If you are a scalper who holds a position for a few seconds to a maximum of a few minutes, your reaction has to be automatic.

In prior discussions about smart cities, including the global rankings I published on Co.Exist a few weeks ago, I believe many of us have under-emphasized the importance of cities in creating an enabling environment for emerging technology companies. advertisement advertisement This was a key issue addressed at the first-ever Cities Summit held in Vancouver earlier this month. Mayors of 35 cities around the world joined with executives and consultants in an intense day and a half of panels discussing open cities, digital cities, urban laboratories, smart-city financing, and startup cities. One of the most interesting conversations was about “Startup Cities.” Nanci Klein of San Jose spoke about the five different industrial areas that the city is promoting, as well as the role of the city in supporting the local startup community.

Sujata AnandanEven as a question mark hangs over whether the Shiv Sena will be able to form a government in Maharashtra, or the state goes under President’s Rule, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has a tough task ahead of him.With the governor now inviting the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), the third-largest party in the newly-elected assembly, to try its hand at government formation, the Sena's future is dependent on NCP chief Sharad Pawar's generosity either which way.Close The Congress which had intense consultations about supporting the Shiv Sena throughout November 11, has lobbed the ball in Pawar's court and is likely to follow his advice in toto on government formation.
