Reality Check For The Tech Sector
With the rise of the internet, and companies’ ability to become not just transnational but supranational, active everywhere yet arguing that their responsibilities belong nowhere, attitudes have changed. Apple’s row with the FBI over access to a locked iPhone that belonged to the employer of one of the San Bernardino killers is just the latest example of technology businesses discovering that nothing they now do is without consequences.

Even Amazon Will Be Swallowed Up
The most successful firms are merely small boats bobbing on the surface of a great and treacherous ocean. Others will take their place as new markets open. It will happen to Intel. It will happen to Amazon, too. And when it does, it’s unlikely to be a result of a lax corporate culture or employees who weren’t prepared to work weekends.

Teenagers Need Social Skills, Not Social Networks
Adolescents who want to get ahead at work need to spend a bit less time on their smartphones and get an awful lot better at studying the codes that come in flesh. They need to read the eyes, the frowns, the corners of a mouth. They need to read the set of a shoulder and a jaw. They need to know when a colleague needs a kind word or some quiet to get on with a deadline. They need to know that when the boss’s face goes red, you can’t just swipe left and move on.

Today's UK Sinkhole Is In Lanarkshire
A group of homeowners were forced to evacuate their homes after a massive sinkhole appeared in their street overnight.   
The enormous hole suddenly developed just yards from the front doors of three detached properties in Plains, Lanarkshire.
The crater covers a large section of road and is estimated to be 30ft wide and 10ft deep.

Today's UK Sinkhole Is In Redruth
If you go back to 1750, the Redruth area was completely different - there were dozens of engine houses and hundreds of shafts in the area, which probably looked a bit like a desert. 'As mines closed, many put very large bits of timber across shafts and backfilled them, thinking this would be safe. Gradually all evidence of the engine houses and covered shafts went and we and builders before us assumed there was nothing there - apart from on the old maps of course. 'The old maps often clearly detail the layout of various mines and where shafts are. It is these maps which mean the difference between buying a house which might fall down a hole, or one which sits on firm ground.

Fukushima Clean-Up Is Taking Forty Years
Removal of nuclear fuel from power plant that suffered triple meltdown following 2011 tsunami could take 40 years or more. Radioactive fuel in three reactors melted down after the tsunami knocked out the plant’s cooling system on 11 March 2011. Tepco is persisting with the government’s roadmap for the Fukushima cleanup, which envisions fuel removal to begin in 2021 and end between 30 and 40 years later, at an estimated cost of almost $20bn (£14bn).

Today's UK Sinkhole Is In Aylesbury
The hole, which is more than six feet deep, appeared in front of a house in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in November when home owner Emma James was mowing the lawn and felt the ground was spongy. The 45-year-old said: “It was giving way as I was standing on it and there was clearly a little hole there so we got a shovel to move the grass roots and it just caved in. "It was a bit scary and we all jumped back but when we looked down we couldn't see anything.

Yahoo Core Valued At $1 billion
Since 1997, there have been more than 120 smaller companies that Yahoo acquired to fuel Yahoo's growth. The company's reported transactions were purchased for a total of about $17 billion, and it divested about $1 billion, meaning that Yahoo gobbled up about $16 billion in new ideas and fresh talent without much apparent gain. And that's not even counting the acquisitions without reported transaction costs. Even with more than $30 billion in ownership of Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, the market is valuing the full company at about $28 billion as of earlier this week. If we factor out those stakes (after taxes) and the company's cash, the core of the company is apparently only worth a little over $1 billion.

The Digital Marketing Funnel
Every industry and every company is different. It's important to report what matters to others in your company, not just what shows how awesome social media is. Does your product team look for feedback and feature requests? Collect it on social. Do you put on in-person events? Report on attendance and sentiment and show off photos and video.

Twitter Has Seen User Growth Stall
In tech, where many companies don’t make profits under traditional accounting measures, the promise of ever-growing popularity is a company’s main selling point to investors and employees. And without investors or employees, there isn’t much of a start-up. Even if some startups were a hit with the plugged-in and early adopters, many of the services appear to have hit a ceiling.

Is India’s $3.60 Smartphone Too Good To Be True?
On Wednesday evening a virtually unknown Indian company launched the "world's cheapest smartphone", named Freedom 251, for 251 rupees ($3.6; £2.50), in Delhi. The handset, from Ringing Bells, a company less than a year old and based in Noida near the capital, Delhi, is a 3G smartphone with specifications similar to phones at least 15 times more expensive. On Thursday, it opened its website freedom251.com for pre-orders with payments due in full in advance - the phone would be sold online over a five-day window. Deliveries are promised by June.

France Paving With Solar Panels
France is paving 621 miles of road with solar panels over the next five years, with the goal of providing cheap, renewable energy to five million people. Five years have been spent on developing solar panels that are only about a quarter of an inch thick and are hardy enough to stand up to heavy highway traffic without breaking or making the roads more slippery.

Marketing Agencies Downsizing Every Year
Despite the decrease in marketing agency fees, marketing agencies are being asked to carry more and more of the marketing burden.

Oil’s slump to a 12-year low is ripping through markets. Just on Wednesday, Royal Dutch Shell Plc said profit may drop at least 42 percent in the fourth quarter. The difference between yields on 10-year notes and similar-maturity Treasury Inflation Protected Securities, a gauge of expectations for consumer prices, shrank as much as three basis points to 1.37 percentage points, the narrowest since May 2009.

Management Consultants' Advice To The Empire
In order to meet the emerging threat; a few counter-measures
Fix the basics - Quick wins:

- Fit shields to TIE fighters. The cost-benefit analysis shows that having a ship that can take more than one hit would outweigh the costs within 1 hour of combat [show that benchmark vs Millennium Falcon: something like >200 hits without exploding]

- Offer free eye tests to all stormtroopers equipped with blasters

- Leverage fear of Emperor/Vader: studies of timelines on projects show that they have a powerful effect on completion rate -- let's work out how to scale this

Europe In 2016: Terror Fears, Migration, Politics
The European Union is bitterly divided and likely to remain so. Geopolitical tensions and terror threats aren't expected to abate. And the migrant surge will continue to cause political and social challenges. But it could also be the year Europe's sluggish economy turns around.

13 Things To Create Your Dream Coaching Business
As it is the start of a new year, Jennifer has been reflecting on what has unfolded in business. She created a list of the 13 things she did (and continues to do) that helped her create the business of her dreams:

1. I ALWAYS believed in myself.

Even when things were not going 'right' (aka... how will I pay this bill tomorrow?), I still had a deep knowing this was my path and that I would find a way (and I always did). I knew that the universe would provide for me because I was capable.

Italy's Booming Solar Energy Market
In Italy, the price of solar power can now compete with other sources of energy.
