Genre : Education
Case study: How PepsiCo innovates its packaging to make it increasingly sustainable, minimizing PepsiCo’s impact on the environment

According to the U.S. EPA, in most parts of the developed world, packaging constitutes as much as one-third of the nonindustrial solid waste stream. As consumption increases with higher living standards, more countries are seeing significant growth in their packaging waste. While most packaging is recyclable, recycling rates remain lower than expected.

Abstract

Packaging materials represent a significant portion of PepsiCo’s supply chain spend. Reducing the amount of packaging used for PepsiCo products both helps to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and reduces costs for the company. PepsiCo is also constantly working to design more recyclable packaging to increase recycling rates globally. After measuring a

2 The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe - Dr. Steven Novella, Bob Novella, Cara Santa Maria, Jay Novella & Evan Bernstein
Auteur : Dr. Steven Novella, Bob Novella, Cara Santa Maria, Jay Novella & Evan Bernstein
Genre : Essays
An all-encompassing guide to skeptical thinking from podcast host and academic neurologist at Yale University School of Medicine Steven Novella and his SGU co-hosts, which Richard Wiseman calls "the perfect primer for anyone who wants to separate fact from fiction."

It is intimidating to realize that we live in a world overflowing with misinformation, bias, myths, deception, and flawed knowledge. There really are no ultimate authority figures-no one has the secret, and there is no place to look up the definitive answers to our questions (not even Google).
Luckily, The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe is your map through this maze of modern life. Here Dr. Steven Novella-along with Bob Novella, Cara Santa Maria, Jay Novella, and Evan Bernstein-will explain the tenets of skeptical thinking and debunk some of the biggest scientific myths, fallacies, and conspi

3 Sensitive Is the New Strong - Anita Moorjani
Auteur : Anita Moorjani
Genre : Self-Improvement
The New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me returns with an inspirational guide for sensitive people looking to fully harness their gifts of intuition and empathy in today’s harsh world.

International speaker, cancer survivor, and author of Dying to Be Me Anita Moorjani astounded fans across the globe with her New York Times bestselling book about overcoming cancer and her life-changing near-death experience. Now she returns with Sensitive Is the New Strong, a powerful, heartfelt book on harnessing and fostering empathic gifts in today’s difficult, fear-based world.

Empaths not only sense other people’s emotions, but also absorb them—sometimes to their own disadvantage, often leading to overwhelming sensory overload and feelings of confusion or low self-esteem. Their willingness to help and please

5 The Increasingly United States - Daniel J. Hopkins
Auteur : Daniel J. Hopkins
Genre : Politics & Current Events
In a campaign for state or local office these days, you’re as likely today to hear accusations that an opponent advanced Obamacare or supported Donald Trump as you are to hear about issues affecting the state or local community. This is because American political behavior has become substantially more nationalized. American voters are far more engaged with and knowledgeable about what’s happening in Washington, DC, than in similar messages whether they are in the South, the Northeast, or the Midwest. Gone are the days when all politics was local.

With The Increasingly United States, Daniel J. Hopkins explores this trend and its implications for the American political system. The change is significant in part because it works against a key rationale of America’s federalist system, which was built on the assumption that citizens would be more strongly attached to th

Flowers
6 Black Flowers, White Lies - Yvonne Ventresca
Auteur : Yvonne Ventresca
Genre : Crime & Mystery
Her father died before she was born, but Ella Benton knows they have a supernatural connection. Since her mother discourages these beliefs, Ella keeps her cemetery visits secret. But she may not be the only one with secrets. Ella’s mother might be lying about how Dad died sixteen years ago. Newfound evidence points to his death in a psychiatric hospital, not as a result of a tragic car accident as her mother always claimed. After a lifetime of just the two of them, Mom suddenly feels like a stranger.

When a handprint much like the one Ella left on her father’s tombstone mysteriously appears on the bathroom mirror, at first she wonders if Dad is warning her of danger as he did once before. If it’s not a warning, could her new too-good-to-be-true boyfriend be responsible for the strange occurrences? Or maybe it’s the grieving building superintendent whose dead daughter s

Disgracefully
7 Growing Old Disgracefully - Rohan Candappa
Auteur : Rohan Candappa
Genre : Humor
Does your mother think it's really charming to talk to every rose bush on the street? Has your father taken up obsessive fundraising for a donkey sanctuary on retirement? Does he collect elastic bands because 'you never know when you'll need one'? Do your parents make jokes about sheltered housing? Have they guessed that you've already sent off for the brochures? Do they seem to be having too much fun for a couple with two fake hips, a pacemaker and three steel pins between them? Then you need Rohan Candappa.

The man who bought you The Little Book of Stress, The Little Book of Wrong Shui and The Autobiography of a One Year Old has hit the nail on the head once more. Full of wit and wisdom, Rohan will give you a much needed laugh in the face of your parents' increasingly barmy behaviour. Just one thing, you'll probably find your parents have bought it too.

Dreadfuls
8 The Penny Dreadfuls - Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley & Oscar Wilde
Auteur : Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley & Oscar Wilde
Genre : Short Stories
Blood, gore, murder, and sin—Victorian literature’s darkest horrors await you.

The penny dreadfuls were cheap nineteenth-century English stories that featured gothic, lurid, disturbing, and tantalizing content. These horror serials cost a penny per issue, hence their name: penny dreadfuls. The penny dreadfuls often paid homage to—and even inspired—many of the more famous narratives of the horror genre.

This book pairs three obscure yet influential penny dreadfuls with three of the most notorious literary giants of the nineteenth century: Dracula, Frankenstein, and Dorian Gray, all in one authentic collection of the best Victorian gothic horror ever written. Originally published at a time when dramatic scientific discoveries sparked a cultural fixation on the paranormal, these stories remain timeless in their uncanny ability to prey upon our primal fea

Bosnian
Chronicle
9 Bosnian Chronicle - Ivo Andric
Auteur : Ivo Andric
Genre : Historical
Set in the town of Travnik, Bosnian Chronicle presents the struggle for supremacy in a region that stubbornly refuses to submit to any outsider. The era is Napoleonic and the novel, both in its historical scope and psychological subtlety, Tolstoyan. In its portrayal of conflict and fierce ethnic loyalties, the story is also eerily relevant. Ottoman viziers, French consuls, and Austrian plenipotentiaries are consumed by an endless game of diplomacy and double-dealing: expansive and courtly face-to-face, brooding and scheming behind closed doors. As they have for centuries, the Bosnians themselves observe and endure the machinations of greater powers that vie, futilely, to absorb them. Ivo Andric's masterwork is imbued with the richness and complexity of a region that has brought so much tragedy to our century and known so little peace.

11 Building The Good Society - Lloyd J. Dumas
Auteur : Lloyd J. Dumas
Genre : Economics
In many countries, society seems to be going off the rails. Economies are mired in widening and deepening inequality while the polity has deteriorated into a state of permanent hyper-partisan confrontation. Compromise and pragmatism seem a thing of the past. The central value of fairness has been cast aside. An individual's freedom and prosperity increasingly appear to depend not on personal and social commitments to the fundamental institutions of market economy and political democracy, but rather on whether his or her side dominates in the struggle for power. Leading political economist Lloyd J. Dumas presents a pragmatic alternative view of a society that is capable of maximizing individual freedoms and producing sustained prosperity while preserving socially responsible behavior. In six interconnected essays, he investigates how to secure political freedom and sustainable democracy w

Genre : Politics & Current Events
Emerging and Readily Available Technologies and National Security is a study on the ethical, legal, and societal issues relating to the research on, development of, and use of rapidly changing technologies with low barriers of entry that have potential military application, such as information technologies, synthetic biology, and nanotechnology. The report also considers the ethical issues associated with robotics and autonomous systems, prosthetics and human enhancement, and cyber weapons. These technologies are characterized by readily available knowledge access, technological advancements that can take place in months instead of years, the blurring of lines between basic research and applied research, and a high uncertainty about how the future trajectories of these technologies will evolve and what applications will be possible.

13 Assessing the Impacts of Changes in the Information Technology R&D Ecosystem - Committee on Assessing the Impacts of Changes in the Information Technology R & D Ecosystem: Retaining Leadership in an Increasingly Global Environment
Auteur : Committee on Assessing the Impacts of Changes in the Information Technology R & D Ecosystem: Retaining Leadership in an Increasingly Global Environment
Genre : Computers
The U.S. information technology (IT) research and development (R&D) ecosystem was the envy of the world in 1995. However, this position of leadership is not a birthright, and it is now under pressure. In recent years, the rapid globalization of markets, labor pools, and capital flows have encouraged many strong national competitors. During the same period, national policies have not sufficiently buttressed the ecosystem, or have generated side effects that have reduced its effectiveness. As a result, the U.S. position in IT leadership today has materially eroded compared with that of prior decades, and the nation risks ceding IT leadership to other nations within a generation.

Assessing the Impacts of Changes in the Information Technology R&D Ecosystem calls for a recommitment to providing the resources needed to fuel U.S. IT innovation, to removing important

14 Building Novel Connections in an Increasingly Standardized World (Feature ARTICLE) - Teacher Librarian
Auteur : Teacher Librarian
Genre : Education
The practice of making decisions about what is worth teaching is as old as schooling itself, and despite the pressure educators feel today, there is little reason for most of them to increase the time, energy, and concern spent on addressing changes in standards. Understanding the motivations that drive the development of standards can help educators (especially progressives and constructivists) continue the work of building rich and deep student knowledge and ability, while also meeting educational goals imposed by increasingly remote external bodies. Librarians not only face the same goal of justifying their work developing student knowledge and ability in light of new standards, but are also increasingly well-placed to help their fellow educators through collaboration centered on those standards that call upon students to access, interpret, and connect information drawn from divers

Auteur : Financial Management (UK)
Genre : Industries & Professions
Austrian Peter Loscher, the first non-German to head engineering giant Siemens, is one of a new breed of chief executives behind a worldwide crackdown on bribery and corruption. Loscher took over when the previous board quit in the wake of a scandal that cost the company [euro]2.5bn in fines and fees. Since then, he has transformed the way it tackles bribery and corruption. He has provided fresh leadership and set out new anti-corruption regulations, while the compliance team has grown from 170 to nearly 600 to ensure the company's rules are adhered to.

16 Critical Minerals and Emerging Technologies: The Federal Government Can Help Ensure That the Nation Has Sufficient and Reliable Supplies of Critical Materials Used Increasingly in Industry and Defense (Critical Minerals) (Report) - Issues in Science and Technology
Auteur : Issues in Science and Technology
Genre : Engineering
The periodic table is under siege. Or at least that is what one might imagine after hearing some of the cries of alarm that have begun echoing across the United States. We hear that the latest cell phones, electric vehicles, or critical weapons systems might no longer be feasible because some element that most people have never heard of is in short supply or being hoarded by another country. Among the alarms issued in just the first few months of 2010, The New Yorker published an essay on lithium supplies (which may be essential for batteries in electric vehicles) and the potentially critical role of Bolivia as a supplier in the future. The Atlantic published an article on China's activities in Africa to secure--even "lock up"--primary commodities needed by its growing manufacturing sector.

19 Sustainability and Evolution, or why life becomes increasingly complex: The Interaction Theory - Michael J. Ruf
Auteur : Michael J. Ruf
Genre : Life Sciences
Thanks to new, improving experimental techniques, modern biology is discovering a steadily growing body of new facts and data about the living nature. A good example of this advancement is the decryption of the complete genome of a rapidly increasing number of organisms, including humans. Regardless of these impressive results, however, there are still no satisfying answers to very basic questions of biology, such as "What is life?" and "Why does matter organize into biological forms that become more complex in the course of evolution?".

The Interaction Theory by Michael J. Ruf assumes that this unsatisfying situation is not simply the consequence that certain experimental data are still missing. The lack of explanation of what life is actually and why simple molecules evolve into complex organisms rather reflects an existing conceptual problem that can only be

20 K-12 Online Education is Increasingly Hybrid Learning - Michael B. Horn
Auteur : Michael B. Horn
Genre : Education
Over the last decade, growth in K-12 online learning has exploded. Online enrollments--any instance of a student taking a half-semester course--have soared, and the total number of students taking online courses, either part time or full time, has climbed rapidly (Adkins, 2009; Picciano & Seaman, 2009; Watson, Gemin, Ryan, & Wicks, 2009). The growth has been so rapid in high school that in the book Disrupting Class, the authors project that by 2019, 50% of all high school courses will be online. Ambient Insight projects that by 2014, 10.5 million pre-K-12 students will attend classes online (Christensen, Horn, & Johnson, 2008; Adkins, 2009).

21 Communalist and Dispersionist Approaches to American Jewish History in an Increasingly Post-Jewish Era (Essay) - American Jewish History
Auteur : American Jewish History
Genre : Social Science
About fifty years ago there came to a head an often animated controversy over whether the federal census of 1960 should include religious categories. The census had changed its character from decade to decade, but had always counted people by what were then called, and by the Census Bureau today are still called, "races." Never had the federal census counted people by religion. In the middle 1950s, a time when religious identity was especially popular among Americans--this was, after all, the era of Will Herberg's Protestant-Catholic-Jew (1955), which powerfully reinforced the idea that religious rather than racial or class identities were what really mattered in the United States--the adding of religion to the census had wide appeal. The Eisenhower administration, which participated heavily in the Cold War sloganeering that contrasted "godless communism" to the godly United States, look

Auteur : Ximena Ortiz
Genre : Politics & Current Events
DESPITE A CHANGE of presidents, America remains mired in economic, institutional, and cultural purgatory, with Obama's exalted oratory circling the stratosphere like a taunt. Angry nationalism shouts down prudence. Disproportionate military spending threatens economic wellbeing. Industry has its hand so deep in the government's purse that private enterprise is becoming public property. The currency falters, the infrastructure crumbles. And a supine media, once a watchdog of the powerful, happily licks the strongman's hand.

Genre : Business & Personal Finance
This paper examines the consequences of heightened capital mobility and of the integration of developing economies in increasingly globalized markets for the exchange rate regimes of the industrial, developing, and transition economies. It builds upon previous studies by IMF staff on various aspects of the exchange rate arrangements of member countries, consistent with the IMF's role of surveillance over its members' exchange rate policies.

24 Improving Spent - Fuel Storage at Nuclear Reactors: Storing Spent Radioactive Fuel in Dry Form Rather Than in Increasingly Jammed Cooling Pools Is Much Safer, And Can He Done with Already Available Funds (Nuclear WASTE STORAGE) - Issues in Science and Technology
Auteur : Issues in Science and Technology
Genre : Engineering
The nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan, which began with an earthquake in March 2011 and continues today, is casting a spotlight on nuclear reactors in the United States. At the Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant, at least one of the pools used for storing spent nuclear fuel--indeed, the pool holding the largest amount of spent fuel--has leaked and remains vulnerable. Because U.S. nuclear plants also use cooling pools for storing spent fuel, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) formed a task force to assess what happened at the stricken facility and identify lessons for the U.S. nuclear industry. In a July 2011 report, the NRC placed upgrading the safety of storage pools at reactor stations high on its list of recommendations. But history and scientific evidence suggest that although useful, improving pool safety will not be enough. Efforts are needed to store more spent fuel in d

26 The Inner Testimony of the Spirit: Locating the Coherent Center of E. Y. Mullins's Theology: Critics from Disparate Theological Perspectives Increasingly Find the Theology of E. Y. Mullins Inadequate for Contemporary Baptists (Edgar Young Mullins) (Essay) - Baptist History and Heritage
Auteur : Baptist History and Heritage
Genre : History
Conservative Baptist scholars have argued that Mullins's emphasis on subjective Christian experience undermines the primacy and authority of the Bible and that his emphasis on human freedom compromises the older Southern Baptist adherence to God's sovereign grace in salvation. (1) Criticism of Mullins also comes from more moderate Baptists concerned with the degree of individualism expressed in his theology. (2) "Communitarian" Baptists, in particular, contend that Mullins's theology is less representative of a healthy Christian theology than of Enlightenment individualism. Mullins's modernist conception of the competent soul lacks awareness of "the sort of community and spiritual formation that are necessary to initiate and sustain converted souls in the Christian life." (3) These criticisms attempt to expose weaknesses, but a stronger objection, if true, raises considerable doubt about

28 Necessary Corrections: To Straighten an Increasingly Misnamed 'Orthodoxy' - Dean Helm
Auteur : Dean Helm
Genre : Bible Studies
After years of studying the Hebrew and Christian scriptures I have always been puzzled by the "connect" between the two, and, the "disconnect" between them and the Christianity we know today. The disconnect can be summed up in one question: When did the message stop being the message of Jesus and become Jesus the messenger? The message of the canon seems very different from the message taught by philosophers and theologians who came after the canon was closed. So I began to explore the Bible and the legacy left by thinkers of other traditions to answer the question – “What did the Ancients learn that they would like to pass on to us today?”
All of those to whom I try to listen lived and wrote in similar times to ours with a similar need as we have. I think we need to listen to their wisdom. There are some corrections we need to make to bring our thinking in line with what they

Doctors concluded they could save her life only if they aborted the 11-week-old fetus she was carrying; the patient agreed.

31 U.S. Policy in the Israeli-Palestinian Dispute: Peace Agreement Resulting in an Independent Palestinian State Increasingly Unlikely, History of the Peace Process, Influence of Hard-Line Factions - Progressive Management
Auteur : Progressive Management
Genre : Middle East
This late 2017 report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. The purpose of this thesis is to examine why a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority that would result in an independent Palestinian state appears increasingly unlikely. The thesis explores the history of the peace process with particular emphasis on the role played by the United States in attempting to fashion an agreement that guaranteed an independent Palestinian state. The results of the thesis suggest a historical path dependency and the power of spoilers in the peace process. Also important has been the nature of U.S. support for Israel, the lack of a truly representative Palestinian body, and the increased influence of more hard-line political parties within Israel and Palestine in recent decades. All these factors have shaped the process and made th

Denise Oakley Wonders How Suppliers will Face up to the Challenge (Supply Chain Design) - Supply Chain Europe
Auteur : Supply Chain Europe
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
In business and industry, it seems we have reached a tipping point. A pundit in the US has suggested that this is all to do with the 'rule of three'--the idea that a maximum of three giant, global players will come to dominate most industries. Whether this is true or not, it is beyond dispute that the balance of power has shifted from suppliers to their customers. The top 500 retailers and manufacturers in the world have got larger, and their leverage and buying power have increased accordingly. Suppliers find themselves having to dance to the customer's increasingly complex tune. Across sectors as diverse as automotive and retail, this elite group of very large customers is looking to their supply chains to help protect and extend their current positions of market strength. More and more of these super-customers are adopting highly customized supply chain models. For example, they are d

"There is no physician that lives in South Dakota that will perform elective abortion procedures," said Sedor, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota. "The doctors all come in from out of state just one day a week. And if you live in the western part of the state, you have to drive five to six hours to get to the only abortion center in the state. This law just makes it even more inaccessible."

Auteur : Issues in Science and Technology
Genre : Engineering
Colorful fruits and vegetables piled to overflowing at a farmers market or in the produce aisle readily come to mind when we think about farming and food production. Such images run counter to those of environmental destruction and chronic hunger and seem disconnected from the challenges of climate change, energy use, and biodiversity loss. Agriculture, though, has been identified as the greatest threat to biodiversity and ecosystem function of any human activity. And because of factors including climate change, rising energy costs, and land degradation, the number of "urgently hungry" people, now estimated at roughly 1 billion, is at its highest level ever. More troubling, agriculture-related problems will probably worsen as the human population expands--that is, unless we reshape agriculture. The disconnect between popular images of farming and its less rosy reality stems from the f

36 Financial Literacy Explicated: The Case for a Clearer Definition in an Increasingly Complex Economy (Report) - Journal of Consumer Affairs
Auteur : Journal of Consumer Affairs
Genre : Marketing & Sales
This study explicates the concept of financial literacy, which has blossomed in use this century. Scholars, policy officials, financial experts and consumer advocates have used the phrase loosely to describe the knowledge, skills, confidence and motivation necessary to effectively manage money. As a result, financial literacy has varying conceptual definitions in existing research, as well as diverse operational definitions and values. This study dissects the differing financial literacy definitions and measures, urging researchers toward common ground. A clearer definition should improve future research, in turn helping consumers better understand and adapt to changing life events and an increasingly complex economy. **********

37 The Business Attorney's Guide to (C)Opyright Law: As Copyright Interests Grow Increasingly Valuable, Businesses That Fail to Protect Their Creative Works - Or be Mindful of the Issues Affecting Their Rights - Run High Legal Risks - Illinois Bar Journal
Auteur : Illinois Bar Journal
Genre : Law
Your business clients and their employees create works every day that are eligible for federal copyright protection--catalogs, advertisements, drawings, designs, programs, brochures, logos, and more. For many clients, these works are among their most valuable assets. While many businesses recognize the importance of obtaining federal registrations for their trademarks, their other creative work is left unregistered. Surprisingly, the number of copyright claims received by the United States Copyright Office has decreased every year since 2004. (1) By contrast, the number of trademark applications filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office has increased every year during that span. (2)

Chaotic
38 Jounce: Crafting a Resilient Life in an Increasingly Chaotic World - Jim Brosseau
Auteur : Jim Brosseau
Genre : Medical
Jounce is an actual physics term – it’s the fourth derivative of position over time. Although the word is seldom encountered in science class, we all experience jounce as we live our lives: being jerked around in several directions at once. From a traffic ticket to bad news from your doctor to a global catastrophe, the sources of jounce are all around us.
This book is about how to handle being jounced. For the author, what began six years ago as an angry response to a personal catastrophe has evolved into an appreciation for the journey he has indeed been on all his life, and a heightened awareness of how to continue that life with intention.
As we work to craft a fulfilled life and a lasting legacy, it is daunting to deal with the growing concern about where our world and our place in it are headed, when only some factors are within our control. For most of us, it remains

40 Necessary Corrections - R. Dean Helm
Auteur : R. Dean Helm
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
After years of studying the Hebrew and Christian scriptures I have always been puzzled by the "connect" between the two, and, the "disconnect" between them and the Christianity we know today. The disconnect can be summed up in one question: When did the message stop being the message of Jesus and become Jesus the messenger? The message of the canon seems very different from the message taught by philosophers and theologians who came after the canon was closed. So I began to explore the Bible and the legacy left by thinkers of other traditions to answer the question –  “What did the Ancients learn that they would like to pass on to us today?” 

All of those to whom I try to listen lived and wrote in similar times to ours with a similar need as we have. I think we need to listen to their wisdom.  There are some corrections we need to make to bring our

46 The Power of Change - National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
Auteur : National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
Genre : Science & Nature
Electricity, supplied reliably and affordably, is foundational to the U.S. economy and is utterly indispensable to modern society. However, emissions resulting from many forms of electricity generation create environmental risks that could have significant negative economic, security, and human health consequences. Large-scale installation of cleaner power generation has been generally hampered because greener technologies are more expensive than the technologies that currently produce most of our power. Rather than trade affordability and reliability for low emissions, is there a way to balance all three?
The Power of Change: Innovation for Development and Deployment of Increasingly Clean Energy Technologies considers how to speed up innovations that would dramatically improve the performance and lower the cost of currently available technologies while also developing new a
