King Kong swings back to Universal Studios with ferocious 3-D ...
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Over two years ago, a fire ravaged the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot, turning several famous outdoor sets into ashes and apparently setting iconic giant gorilla King Kong free. At least, that's how the fact-meets-fantasy story line goes in "King Kong 360 3-D," an immersive addition to the studio tour opening July 1. Rather than simply move past the real-life blaze that destroyed the theme park's original 30-foot-tall animatronic ape in 2008, the fire has become part of the revamped attraction's mythology, addressed by tour guides and featured in footage broadcast inside the ... market research, surveys and trends
U.S. Approach to Farming Should Change To Meet New Challenges ...
WASHINGTON, June 20, 2010 - U.S. farmers are under pressure to produce more, pollute less, fulfill consumer preferences, and make a living -- all with increasingly scarce natural resources and the uncertain effects of climate change, says a new report from the National Research Council. To help U.S. agriculture evolve to meet these demands, the report concludes, national agricultural policies and research programs should look beyond focusing only on low costs and high production and adopt a holistic perspective to farming that encompasses multiple end goals. "Although farming productivity has increased, nowadays farmers ... market research, surveys and trends

We are an HIV medical research nonprofit that seeks and identifies promising HIV therapies that are not of interest to pharmaceutical comapianies (we can do this because we are driven by mission, not by markets). We currently employee just under 20 people, in a Macintosh technology envrionment.

We have located several foundations and operations that fund technology for operations. Most are for PC environments. Our minimimal needs are for one ...
case studies on the planning of a new non-profit? | LinkedIn ...
I am seeking opinions. I am looking for a good book/case study on the forming of a non-profit. NOT merely the 'legal logistics' -- I'm aware there are plenty of those type guides. I'm more interested in one conceptual level higher. For instance, one has an idea for a potential non-profit, but has never worked in that industry before. How do they plan it? Structure it (again, not just legally/financially)? What options exist? What is really required to start? etc. Everything I've seen seems to start at the legal formation, as if one knows exactly what they are going to do once they're a legal ...
