Suomalaisten usko oman maan muutoskykyyn oli heikoin Euroopan maista.Asia selviää yritysten ja yhteiskuntien suhteellista kilpailu- ja muutoskykyä mittaavasta tutkimuksesta, joka pohjautuu Suomen Yrittäjien ja ratkaisutoimisto Seedin yhteistyössä tekemään Ravistajat-perustutkimukseen.Vain prosentti suomalaisista vastaajasta uskoi, että yritykset ja yhteiskunta kykenevät muuttumaan ja parantamaan kilpailukykään.Suurimmat ongelmat olivat vastaajien mielestä yhteistyön puute ongelmanratkaisussa ja päätöksenteon hitaus.Vastaajat pitivät suomalaisia muita tutkimusmaita heikompana myös myynnin ja markkinoinnin aktiivisuudessa.Sen sijaan luottamus eli sovitusta kiinni pitäminen oli suomalaisten selkeä vahvuus, kuten ruotsalaisten ja saksalaistenkin.
Chinese smartphone-maker OnePlus has launched its latest flagship mobile, the OnePlus 5, which aims to take-on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 at the top of the handset market.It serves as a replacement for the OnePlus 3T, a smartphone that "managed to undercut the competition on price and beat them on design", The Guardian says.Despite this, the numbering order has jumped a step from three to five, which the Daily Telegraph says is " partly due to the number four being consider an unlucky number by some East Asian nations".The OnePlus 5 is being labelled as the most powerful device the company has made, but can it compete with the South Korean giant's Galaxy S8?The OnePlus 5 is closer in design to the iPhone 7 than the Galaxy S8, with a horizontal dual-lens camera and embedded antenna bands.It also retains the physical home button at the bottom of its 5.5ins full-HD AMOLED (active matrix organic light emitting diode) display, a button relocated from the front to the rear of the device on the Galaxy S8.
"the Growth of the market for 3D printing continues on a global basis with more options in terms of technology and materials, which is driving more investment in 3D printers and a greater utilization of the equipment already installed," says Tim Green, who is the Research Director of Hardcopy Solutions at IDC in the press release.The fastest growing segments were the FFF/FDM and stereolithography, which both increased the number of deliveries in 2016 by 30 per cent.On the income side grew fusion-based 3D printers with almost 40 per cent between 2015 and 2016.The regions that showed the strongest growth were Asia/Pacific region, Eastern europe and the Middle east & Africa.Supply of 3D-printers recovered during the second half of 2016, but fell still for the full year from the previous year.An interesting phenomenon that is mentioned is that a number of chinese producers accounts for a large proportion of the number of deliveries but a small part of the hårdvaruintäkterna, while the phenomenon is vice versa for players like 3D Systems and Stratasys.
It's My Styl, som är en social media-app för tonåringar inom mode och livsstil, grundades av Josephine Eskilsson och Felicia Åkerlind.Två år efter lanseringen har appen i dag 65.000 medlemmar.Nu meddelar duon att de blir en trio – bolaget har plockat in Jessica Baban som ny medgrundare.Hon har en bakgrund som UX & UI designer på kända techbolag som fiskeappen Fishbrain och blodtestappen Werlabs."Jag är grymt exalterad över vad vi kan åstadkomma tillsammans som tre kvinnliga medgrundare inom tech-Sverige", säger Jessica Baban.Grundarna träffades för två år sedan och Josephine Eskilsson menar att Babans kompetens kommer att göra teamet fullständigt.
They have many jobs around the house, such as monitoring humans in the bathroom, knocking stuff off tables to make sure gravity still exists, and most importantly, being our snuggle buddies.While cats might seem perfectly content with being couch potatoes, the reality is they’ve been pulling the long con on humanity for thousands of years.This work allowed the researchers to determine the original phylogeographic structure of cats—or how genetically different cat populations were geographically distributed throughout history—which is something that other archaeological and genetic analyses have not been able to accomplish.“This, in turn, made it possible to reconstruct how cats were moved by humans across time and space, allowing us to prove that cats from two different sources—the Near East during the Neolithic and Egypt during the Classical/Roma era—contributed to the genetic make-up of modern domestic cats,” co-author Claudio Ottoni of the University of Leuven told Gizmodo.The first lines of cats, called IV-A, were originally from southwest Asia, but brought to Europe in about 4400 BC.The second group of cats were African felines called IV-C, found in Egypt over 3,000 years ago.
Two-headed animals aren't so unusual to come across, especially in livestock or domesticated animals, but finding them in the ocean is indeed a rarity.However last month, fisherman working in the North Sea off the coast of the Netherlands came across a two-headed porpoise in their nets and snapped a few photos of the oddity.The crew then threw it back into the ocean, worried that it might be illegal to keep, even though it was already dead.The photos show that the conjoined porpoise has one tail, one dorsal fin, two pectoral fins and, most remarkably, two fully grown heads (referred to as parapagus dicephalus) complete with two sets of eyes and two blowholes.A team of Dutch biologists from the Natural History Museum Rotterdam, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research and Wageningen Marine Research found the photos so fascinating that they published a case study earlier this month about the discovery."The first case of conjoined twin harbour porpoises Phocoena phocoena (Mammalia, Cetacea)" (PDF) was published in Deinsea, the online journal of the Natural History Museum Rotterdam.
I cruise through immigration at Changi Airport, scanning my passport and thumb without breaking stride.Through the Grab ride-hailing app, I can call a Robocar, one of the first public trials to bring self-driving cars directly to consumers.The Housing and Development Board (HDB) is testing internet-of-things devices in government-built housing developments, including smart lighting, pneumatic waste-collection and sensors to monitor elderly people who have fallen.Incubator spaces, government contract incentives and coding programmes entice startups and entrepreneurs.In Singapore, it's called Smart Nation, a master plan for development to make the "little red dot" a global technology leader.If there's anything that Britain might learn from its fellow island nation, it's that a smart plan cannot quell deep-seated anxiety about a tenuous future
(Reuters) — President Donald Trump will meet with the chief executives of technology companies including Apple and Amazon.com on Monday as the White House looks to the private sector for help in cutting government waste and improving services.White House officials said on a conference call on Friday that the administration believed there was an “economic opportunity” to save up to $1 trillion over 10 years by significantly cutting government information technology costs, reducing government costs through improved IT, leveraging government buying power and cutting fraud across government agencies.The meeting with nearly 20 chief executives comes as the White House pushes to shrink government, cut federal employees and eliminate regulations.Many business executives are eager to work with the new administration as they face numerous regulatory and other policy issues.He signed a separate order in March to overhaul the federal government and tapped son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner to lead a White House Office of American Innovation to leverage business ideas and potentially privatize some government functions.Others planning to attend include Alphabet Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Chairman John Doerr and the chief executives of Microsoft, IBM, Mastercard, Intel, Qualcomm, Oracle and Adobe Systems, a White House official said on Sunday.
Agile practices (often referred to as “Agile”) emphasize continual delivery of smaller portions of work over projects with larger interconnected tasks that may span weeks or months (which is traditionally called waterfall-style management).A scrum team working on content, for example, might begin a two-week sprint committing to creating a new infographic or data sheet.Daily stand-up meeting: Team members stand in a circle for 15 minutes or so every morning to discuss the scrum team’s accomplished tasks, focus areas, and blockers that may hinder them from finishing their assigned sprint work.If you’re considering adopting Agile on your team, even if you’re looking simply to streamline processes within your marketing team, you’ll want to avoid these four Agile marketing mistakes that our team made:We called ourselves Agile without doing our homework.Don’t come into work one Monday and announce that you’re “going Agile” as I did.
While Microsoft's Surface Laptop might look the goods, once you get inside the thing, well, it reveals its uglier, less repairable side.As iFixit recently discovered, if something inside the portable PC goes bang, you'll almost certainly have to get a complete new one.Forget about screws, the Surface Laptop is almost entirely held together by glue and clips.The iFixit folks spent most of their time with a Stanley knife, tweezers and guitar pick in hand, rather than a Torx or Phillips-head.The guts of the device aren't much better.Forget about removing or replacing any of the components; once you've taken something out, good luck getting it back in.
Lacovara and his team had stumbled across a two-metre-long femur, the leg bone of one of the largest land dinosaurs ever discovered.The findings marked the beginning of a four-year excavation, which unearthed 145 bones from a 26-metre-long skeleton.Lacovara christened the dinosaur Dreadnoughtus schrani, which means "fears nothing"."It's mind-boggling to lie in the desert next to a femur that's two metres long and imagine the creature that was attached," says the 55-year-old."My wife says when I'm looking for my keys in the morning that I study big dinosaurs because I can't find anything smaller," he jokes.Case in point: the Dreadnoughtus, a 65-tonne herbivorous titanosaur, which probably roamed South America about 77 million years ago.
You want to seem as informed and relatable as possible, just like you would for an interview.You have virtually everything that you need to know at your fingertips with LinkedIn, so might as well put it to good use.First, you want to read their profile thoroughlyThis doesn’t mean skimming all the way through to see what places or skills you may have, but reading everything in depth.See if you have anything in common - maybe you share similar endorsements, worked in a similar field, took similar classes back in college; all of these small similarities can be leveraged within a meeting to make you relatable.(And worth noting, some of the tools LinkedIn added in their recent refresh actually highlight key talking points and factors in common for you, making it even easier to identify these key commonalities.)
Estonia became yesterday the first country in the EU where robots are now legal will be able to deliver the goods to the estonians in the future.Starship Technologies, a company that for the past two years developed a rolling robot designed for supplies, writing on Twitter that the Estonian parliament approved the proposal to allow robotleveranser in the country, with the numbers 86 - 0.the Robots will be used for delivery may not be more than a metre high and 1.2 metres long.the Robots must also be painted in a certain way, white areas both front and rear, and must also be fitted with reflectors and lights if they will run in the dark.IN the united states, both the states of Virginia and Idaho agreed to leveransrobotar allowed to drive on their streets when they deliver stuff.

A new restaurant experience that uses visual mapping and 3D projections to tell a story on the dinner table is coming to the UK later this year.When you go to a restaurant, it’s unlikely you’ll actually get to meet the chef cooking your food – and preparation is generally kept behind closed doors.But a new dining concept called Dinner Time Story brings a miniature chef to life on your dinner table, all through the magic of visual mapping.By mapping your dining table and the objects on it (e.g.Guests can watch as the whimsical Le Petit Chef prepares your meal – which is replaced with real food at the end, we should add – as the below video shows:“Unlike many other dining shows, we have created our story around the food,” explains Nadine Beshir, Dinner Time Story’s producer.

The children in the 'Biggest Unboxing Surprise EVER!!'video series don't get what they bargained for.In fact, they get a pretty tough but enlightening life lesson.In the series, three unsuspecting children unbox what they think are the latest and greatest toys.But when the contents are revealed – a positive pregnancy test, an ammunition belt and a pick axe with rubble – the children are shocked and confused.Released to commemorate International Children’s Day and in conjunction with Save the Children’s first annual End of Childhood Report "Stolen Childhoods," the videos take a hard look at the events – or childhood “enders” – such as adolescent pregnancy, extreme violence and child labor that rob one in four children worldwide of their childhood.
When it first happened, many of us were a little dismissive.In her introductory video, Sarkeesian -- clad in a paisley hoodie and hoop earrings -- sits on a lime-green couch and talks into the camera as she touts the virtues of video games, such as improving hand-eye coordination, multitasking and enhancing players' cognitive abilities.Considering the increasingly central role video games play in our society, Sarkeesian said she planned to create a series of five videos to look at how women are portrayed, from the damsel in distress to the sexy sidekick to the villainess and beyond.Sarkeesian hoped to raise $6,000 over the next month to help pay for her project.An army of hateful trolls woke up, found each other online and launched a crusade of harassment, targeting not only Sarkeesian but anyone else who questioned their view of how the gaming world should be.Brianna Wu, co-founder of indie game development studio Giant Spacekat, had to hire personal security after she became a target for speaking out.
Automation has already caused job losses in a number of industries, and computer scientists reckon there’s a lot more to come.If you have friends going through medical schools graduating with a degree in radiology, I think they have a perfectly fine five-year career as a radiologistCouriers have found themselves among the first in the firing line as delivery firms and online retailers increasingly turn to new technologies.E-commerce giants Amazon and Alibaba have already started automating deliveries to shorten the time taken for small packages to reach their destination, while Beijing-based JD.com wants to deploy heavy-load drones to carry cargo weighing over a ton.If your job requires carrying out repetitive tasks, the chances are it may be taken over by machines or algorithms in five to 10 years’ time.Technology companies Google and Baidu have invested heavily in self-driving vehicles, which could leave millions of jobs in the dust.
