No Time for the Academic Entrepreneur | Xconomy
The recurring question I hear from so many people in business is: “Why aren’t more startups generated by the university system?” It’s not an easy question, certainly not one to be solved in a single blog post. As I considered the many facets of academia that influence the actions of its researchers such as government policies, university culture, funding agency metrics and so forth, I realized that the obstacles and challenges faced by professors are similar to those of most any startup. Academic scientists must in fact be entrepreneurial minded in order to maintain the funding they need to not only ... market research, surveys and trends
Dear Mr. President: Immigration Reform Won't Be Enough To Stop The ...
In a speech at the American University last Thursday, President Obama highlighted the incredible economic rewards that America has gained from its immigrants. He spoke of new waves of immigrants—from places like Ireland, Italy, Poland, and China—challenging the generations before them, and consequently being subjected to “rank discrimination and ugly stereotypes”.  Yet the immigrants kept coming to America. That’s because it was the only land of opportunity. The President wants lawmakers to fix the immigration system so that America can remain globally competitive. But I don’t think it’s that simple. America is no longer the ... market research, surveys and trends


Local News | UW: Hard course ahead for funding | Seattle Times ...
There's a joke going around the University of Washington campus: Once, the UW was a state university. Then it became a state-supported university. Now it's just a university in a state. With President Mark Emmert announcing last Tuesday he's leaving to take the top job at the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the UW's next president will step onto a campus that has seen its state funding slashed by one-third in the past 15 months. For the first time, students are paying for a greater share of their education than taxpayers. With more cuts likely, UW's next president will lead an institution that ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Despite Pledge to Curtail Corporate Earmarks, Politicians Pursue Them
This March, House Appropriations Committee chairman David Obey pledged to stop colleagues from steering millions of dollars in no-bid contracts to businesses, a controversial practice used by politicians to please constituents and boost pet projects, and which sometimes benefits campaign donors. Restricting so-called corporate earmarks, declared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , would help end the “culture of corruption” in Washington by limiting the influence of lobbyists while ensuring that companies “no longer reap the rewards” from special favors. In a joint statement that grabbed headlines – even though it applied only to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Question: Glycerine usage in chemical production - for Bobbie
Looking for glycerine usage in chemical production. Some chemical producers have change processes to use glycerine as a route. This takes advantage of the cheap glyceirne on the market. I am looking for actual production of chemicals using glycerine and any planned conversions to this route. I have found that propylene glycol also called 1,2 propanediol (Degussa) and epichlorohydrin (Solvay) are two examples of companies that have actually converted and commercially produce using glyerine as a feedstock. Can you identify any others? I think 1,3 propanediol is a possibility as is ethanol though I haven't looked too ...
