A Defense of the LMS (and a case for the future of Social Learning)
For some time now, I’ve seen a growing negativity toward LMS solutions by a pretty wide group folks in our space.  Many of whom I really respoect.  I see it in blog posts, comments, posts, LrnChat discussions, and all sorts of places.  90% of this negativity seems to be directed at the formal nature of LMS, the percieved lack of flexibility, or the lack of learner “control.”  In just about every case, the argument seems to be that “social” or “informal” will fix all this — social platforms like Jive or Sharepoint or maybe just loosely joined collections of social apps, like ... market research, surveys and trends

The Global Health Regime
Despite medical advances and improvements in sanitation, water supply, nutrition, housing, and education, poor health continues to plague many countries in the world today. Infectious diseases kill approximately fifteen million people each year, and more than four million die from AIDS, malaria, or tuberculosis alone. A disproportionate share of this suffering occurs in developing countries. New threats, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and recombinant flu strains, continue to arise. Meanwhile, health conditions traditional to wealthier nations�including tobacco consumption, obesity, and diabetes�are increasingly ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

which follows Friday's City Paper item on Fenty administration efforts to find funding for the controversial Peaceoholics. Klopott reports that DYRS is "expected to soon give a $400,000 no-bid contract" to the group. "[F]ounder Ron Moten told The Examiner that DYRS is making up for the $400,000 in work Peaceoholics performed over two months last fall after the council canceled its contracts," he writes, adding that ousted chief Marc Schindler resisted sending more money to the group and that one of its former board members is now a top DYRS official. However, reality might not be so dramatic: The Post ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Small businesses should be able to hire the workers they need, without thought to benefits and perks that larger companies can afford. Eventually, as companies grow, to attract higher caliber talent, they will have to offer higher caliber benefits and coverage.
