Advertisement Supported by ByDavid Yaffe-Bellany July 10, 2019 First, there was the meatless burger. Soon we may have fishless fish. Impossible Foods, the California company behind the meatless Impossible Whopper now available at Burger King, is joining a crowded field of food companies developing alternatives to traditional seafood with plant-based recipes or laboratory techniques that allow scientists to grow fish from cells. So far, much of Impossible’s work has focused on the biochemistry of fish flavor, which can be reproduced using heme, the same protein undergirding its meat formula, according to Pat Brown, the company’s chief executive. Last month, Impossible’s 124-person research and development team, which the company plans to … [Read more...] about The Fish Is Boneless. (Fishless, Too.)
World economic forum when will the future arrive
This column is about the Colorado Springs technology sector. So, let’s discuss housing.Is there enough of it? Is there a roof and a bed for the thousands of tech workers that employers say they need?Look, it’s not as if job hunters are in danger of being turned away at the city limits. If there’s one thing this city knows how to do, it’s plow ground, lay pipe, pave streets, frame houses, lather, rinse, repeat. I won’t make too much of this, but it is striking to see how the tables have turned on tech labor demand and housing stock.Consider the four tech sectors in Colorado Springs with the most job openings. They have 3,100 jobs they want to fill, according to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Economic Forum. Even in a metro area of three-quarters of a million people, that’s a lot of available jobs, even if it is a routine number. Colorado Springs News Colorado among top 10 states ranked by U.S. News & World Report Ellie Mulder … [Read more...] about Where will Colorado Springs tech workers live if they come?
If the boss talks, it’s not countedLAST WEEK, we talked about how failed experiments can result into a successful strategy with a simple approach – repurposing. But when we talk about buzzwords and theories, how will you repurpose or paraphrase something so it creates greater impact to your audience? An excellent example comes from Connecticut-based Rudy Go who was here on a short visit to partner with me in our public workshop on Hoshin Kanri (strategic planning through waste elimination). Rudy, who is often called sensei (teacher) by his clients in Japan and the United States says we can explain employee empowerment and engagement in one simple statement: “If the answer comes from the boss, then it’s not counted.” When explaining that powerful one-liner, Rudy refers to “respect for people” and “continuous improvement” being the two essential elements of The Toyota Way. Unfortunately, they are often ignored by some people managers … [Read more...] about If the boss talks, it’s not counted

By Dominic Gates The Seattle Times Thu., Jan. 24, 2019 Boeing offered a glance at a futuristic alternative to crowded freeways when its prototype autonomous air taxi — essentially a flying car with no driver — lifted off the ground for the first time on a test takeoff. “In one year, we have progressed from a conceptual design to a flying prototype,” said Boeing chief technology officer Greg Hyslop, adding that Boeing will leverage its decades of aviation expertise to create an air mobility technology that’s “safe, innovative and responsible.” Boeing subsidiary Aurora Flight Sciences, a leading developer of innovative aircraft and autonomous systems that Boeing acquired in 2017, designed the electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Its first flight took place Tuesday at Aurora’s headquarters in Manassas, Va. With a range of up to 80 kilometres, the air taxi is 30 feet long and 28 feet wide. Its advanced … [Read more...] about Boeing pilotless air taxi lifts off the ground, but there is no rush to catch a ride
