Vi behöver en ny generation nationalekonomer, skriver Johnny Kellner, klimat- och energistrateg.Finanssektorn måste ta hänsyn till att havsnivåerna stiger och att extremsituationer med översvämningar och skogsbränder blir mer vanliga även i Sverige.Redan i dag har vi problem med kraftiga erosionsskador vid södra Sveriges kuster.Torkan i Afrika som blir allt värre kommer enligt internationella organisationen för migration (IOM) dramatiskt att öka andelen klimatflyktingar när människor inte längre kan försörja sig i sina hemländer eftersom jorden blir obrukbar.En konsekvens av denna utveckling är att kostnader för immigrationen ökar, att energikostnaderna och försäkringskostnaderna riskerar att öka i takt med att konsekvenserna och skadorna blir större.Enbart under byggprocessen svarar byggsektorn för 15-18 procent av Sveriges totala årliga utsläpp av klimatgaser på 54 miljoner ton.
Andy Rubin's Essential Products has slipped right back into hot water.Keyssa, a wireless technology company backed by iPod co-creator Tony Faddell, is suing Essential, founded by Android cocreator Rubin, in a lawsuit filed on Monday that alleges the company stole trade secrets, according to Reuters.Keyssa alleges that Essential for 10 months considered using the company's wireless tech for its first phone, the Essential Phone, before opting to use a competitor, SiBEAM.During that 10 month period, Essential was educated by Keyssa engineers on the technology, and went on the use that information despite not partnering with the Faddell-backed company.This information amounts to trade secrets, Keyessa says, and Essential breached a nondisclosure agreement by using it.The practical application was the Essential Phone's wireless connector, which attaches to a 360-camera accessory.
‘Good things come to those who don’t wait’ proclaims the Wall Street Journal, which features an impatient, ambitious businesswoman growing up in its latest spot.The ad begins with her birth – too eager to enter the world, she appears in the back of a taxi outside the emergency room.As a child she’s quick to walk and explore, and shows an entrepreneurial spirit at the lemonade stand early on.A copy of the Wall Street Journal is in her adult hand as she runs for a train in heels, which she ditches for flats and the publication’s app as she begins her own business as the film concludes.The line encourages us to ‘Read Ambitiously’, accompanied by the hashtag DontWait.The spot was directed by Ozark filmmaker Ellen Kuras and was devised by The & Partnership.
Huawei is thinking big with the Mate 10 - and we're not just talking about that 5.9in screen.The glass-and-metal sandwich is powered by an all-new Kirin 970 CPU, which has a separate AI brain built to absolutely chew through tricky neural network tasks like machine learning and image recognition.Sounds complicated and futuristic, right?You'll notice the difference when you break out the twin Leica-branded rear cameras, though: the Mate 10 should recognise specific scenes like food, sunsets, selfies and plants almost instantly, tweaking shot settings on the fly to get jaw-droppingly good snaps without diving into manual mode.All this runs on top of Android 8 Oreo and the latest version of Huawei's EMUI, while a colossal 4000mAh battery should keep you juiced up for up to two days at a time.The Mate 10 isn't actually heading to the UK - we'll get the Mate 10 Pro instead, which kicks things up another notch.
The director and co-writer of 2015's indie hit Tangerine was struggling to find the right actress for his follow-up, The Florida Project, about the hard-luck denizens living in an Orlando-outskirts motel.Thanks to Tangerine's critical success, Baker could easily have landed an established performer to play Halley, the impoverished but timber-tough single mom whose financial desperation leads to some calamitous decisions."But I was concerned that the audience was going to be taken out of it every time they saw a recognizable face in this role, because of her struggles.And I love bringing fresh faces to the screen."The casting call he needed, it turned out, would come from his smartphone.One day, while browsing Instagram, Baker inadvertently landed on the feed of Bria Vinaite, a New York-based clothing designer and pot-lover whose posts channeled Halley's hard-won carefree spirit.

Funan, formerly the Funan DigitaLife Mall, a specialist in consumer electronics, has commissioned a visual identity to capture the exciting variety of experiences on offer through the visualisation of Funan’s six ‘passion clusters’: Fit, Play, Craft, Taste, Chic and Tech, when it reopens.The mall will feature an exciting mixed-use development with co-living, co-working and retail components; a theatre, cinema, gym and fitness facilities; and a space for local designers and makers to hold workshops and promote their craft.The rebranding, which is being handled by independent brand design agency Design Bridge, will see the agency tasked to create a bold graphic language to represent each cluster.For example, a grey and silver pattern inspired by strands of DNA and code represents ‘Tech’ and a graphic referencing pulse and heart rate monitors has been created for ‘Fit’.The individual graphics provide a distinctive identity to different areas within Funan and help consumers navigate the exciting array of possibilities and opportunities inside.When taken together, the full collection of patterns and colour-ways expresses the rich diversity of Funan’s offering as a whole.
Around lunchtime, the station ran a segment about Russian troll farms buying ads through Google and Facebook.As the radio station dug into how Russian operatives used social platforms to influence U.S. politics, it name-checked Google’s DoubleClick ad exchange.Severin escaped the city bustle on her trip, but despite being within walking distance of canyons and waterfalls, she could not avoid ad tech.Similar to how Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album catapulted grunge from having a devoted underground following to topping Billboard charts, the Russian ad scandal is opening the general public’s eyes to the mechanisms underlying digital advertising.Online ad targeting used to be the sole purview of advertising trade magazines, but thanks to the Russian ad scandal, it has become the topic du jour for news outlets ranging from New York City tabloids to “The Rachel Maddow Show.” The story has even reached alt-weeklies in Idaho and CafeMom forums.Stories about how Russian operatives bought digital ads in the U.S. have branched into popular culture because several factors converged simultaneously to make the topic acutely newsworthy.

Ironworks Patents LLC is a patent-enforcement company formed earlier this year, with no apparent business other than filing lawsuits over patents.It's a business model that's now decades old, and companies that engage in it are often derided as "patent trolls."Yet Ironworks isn't your everyday patent enforcer.The company has inherited a patent portfolio belonging to MobileMedia Ideas LLC, which has already proven its value.On Friday, Ironworks filed a new lawsuit seeking to ensure it has the rights to collect royalties for all later iPhone models—from the iPhone 4S all the way up to the still-not-shipped iPhone X.Corporate paperwork filed with the Illinois Secretary of State indicates that Ironworks is controlled by David Ruder, a Chicago attorney who has spent his career in patent monetization.
Veep Pence calls for Luna to become stepping stone for farther missions, constant US presence in low-Earth orbitThe United States' National Space Council Policy has met for the first time in 25 years and issued a new “Policy for Future American Leadership in Space”.The Council was revived by president Donald Trump in a June 2017 executive order, after it stopped operating in 1993.Re-establishing the Council was a Trump policy.The Council met for the first time last week and vice-president Mike Pence's remarks painted a picture of the US's current space efforts as lacking focus and having fallen behind other nations' efforts.He therefore outlined a policy “for America to maintain a constant commercial, human presence in low-Earth orbit”.

Truphone, a mobile company based out of London that made a name for itself through low-cost international mobile voice and data plans, is taking a very big step forward in a strategy to catapult itself into the future of communications: the company has picked up a massive £255 million ($339 million), funding that it will use to retire its debt and double down on providing data connectivity for connected devices beyond mobile phones.This investment is being done as a rights issue, an issue of shares to existing shareholders at a special price: in this case, Minden and Vollin Holdings, two investment firms with ties to Roman Abramovich, the Russian oligarch who also owns the football club Chelsea among other things.Truphone’s CEO Ralph Steffens told TechCrunch that the round values Truphone at £370 million ($491 million).This is not large premium compared to Truphone’s last reported round and is far less than the total the company has raised in its life: In 2013 Truphone raised £75 million at a £300 million valuation, and to date, it raised just under $600 million.A large part of today’s investment, Steffens said, was being made to pay down Truphone’s debt and go forward with a clean slate.The company has been around since 2006 (I’m guessing it may have outlasted the statute of limitations on being called a “startup”) and in the last three to four years specifically has racked up about £239 million in debt, Steffens said, as it was expanding its business.
Directors on Uber's board will reportedly vote on Tuesday on reforms that would limit the power of the ride-hailing company's former CEO Kalanick.As well as deciding whether to reshape the Uber's governance, the board will also vote on whether to sell $10 billion of stock to Japanese internet giant SoftBank, according to Bloomberg, which quoted two people familiar with the matter.The vote would come in the midst of a particularly difficult year for the company.Last month, London's transport regulator refused to renew the company's licence to operate in the city due to safety concerns.Uber has also struggled throughout 2017 with ongoing internal drama at the highest levels.Kalanick, who resigned in June but remains on the company's board, appointed two new members on Friday, which was "a complete surprise" to the other directors.
