evil tobacco: a csr assumption up in smoke?
challenges an unwritten rule of corporate social responsibility (CSR): tobacco companies need not apply.  However, reflection on the trends shaping the next generation of CSR and its associated discipline, socially responsible investing (SRI), raises a slightly uncomfortable question: maybe a socially responsible tobacco company isn’t an oxymoron after all.

Crowdfunding News and the “News Mutual Fund”
I’ve been looking lately at some of the “crowdfunding” models for journalism, in which audience members donate money to specific stories whose production they want to support. Here’s my idea for a “news mutual fund” – a concept slightly different from the crowdfunding models I’ve seen so far. One well-known crowdfunding project for journalism is Spot.Us .

Nez Perce Oppose Oil-Gear Shipments Through Idaho
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Nez Perce tribe in north-central Idaho said Friday it doesn't want 200 over-sized loads of oil-field equipment traveling a reservation highway en route to an oil sands project in Canada.
