Unlike the term " intergovernmental organization ", the term "non-governmental organization" has no generally agreed legal definition. In many jurisdictions, these types of organization are called "civil society ...

- Bishop Hill blog - Fiona Fox on the Hockey Stick
website. The thrust of the piece is that sceptics should be ignored. Nothing new there, I hear you say. However, her argument includes this take on the Hockey Stick. That said, I suspect the other defence of 'balance' is that it is 'entertaining'. Most producers don't bother to hide their utter disdain when I suggest that having two scientists who look like they may agree would make for an equally entertaining debate. But I mean it. Anyone who reads Fred Pearce's brilliant new book on the UEA (University of East Anglia) emails can testify that the really interesting disputes about ... market research, surveys and trends

VIEW: Tenuous too much —Gulmina Bilal Ahmad
No two countries or alliances anywhere in the world have identical motives. One forms an alliance based on points of cooperation not of divergence. Why is that taken as evidence of �tenuous� relations? This week, the operative word has been tenuous. While briefing the Senate Committee in the US, General David Petraeus declared that in his opinion the security situation in Afghanistan is �tenuous�. The flimsiness of the situation, which the word tenuous refers to, was also on the mind of Pakistani-origin defence analyst Shuja Nawaz. Mr Shuja Nawaz is the director of the South Asian Centre of the Atlantic Council who this week ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How do we convince buyers of the benefits of changes in ...
With e-procurement leading best value supply, what is the best way of convincing risk avers buyers to move outside of the box and invest in suitable systems? The problems that I have encountered relate to electronic tendering and reverse auctions and I have deliberately posted this question in the section dealing with the Public Sector. I see the problem being that to follow our strict public procurement rules buyers can wind the handle and do whatever they have historically done without any risk as the process is well known and accepted. To step outside of the box and encompass other methods of procurement is a potential risk ...
