Communications over the world wide doesnt depend on sytax or eloquence or rethoric or articulation but on the emotional context in which the message is being heard.
People can only hear you when they are moving toward you and they are not likely to when your wordss are pursuing them
Even the choices words lose their powe when they are used to overpower.
Attitudes are the real figures of speech '-Friedman

How To Predict Future Management Trends

If you look at how political and business management trends have evolved over the past few thousand years, you can get a sense of where they will end up in the future. Notice how they have moved from a one-person (typically male) "dictatorship" a few thousand years ago to today's form of team collaboration headed by a leader.
Today's management styles are a mixture of past and present. As an example, there is the Donald Trump method of management with roots in the "my way or the highway" past- a single leader dictates the course to follow.
Then there's the Richard Branson method of management where the leader asks openly for creative ideas from all the team members or employees, because it is generally agreed that "two heads are better than one". The system is open, each member has their role, and it is managed closely by a leader.
And then there's today's form of open collaboration that is close to the future management trend wherein each member has a unique talent, and after some deliberation on an issue that's guided by a leader, a team consensus is made as to the course of action, and a leader helps to guide the solution.
So slowly we can see how we are integrating more ideas and suggestions into the decision-making and management process. Management itself is beginning to open up.
So what is the next step for future management trends? What is the future of management?

Viral Management is Next for our Future Management Trends

Like a weed, the answers will come naturally and quickly, and they will hit everyone around the same time. It will be like a virus infecting the team. So each person will have natural buy-in without needing to twist any arms. It's called… Viral Management.
What we're beginning to see in some businesses that will become the norm in the future is that you'll have a management team, and each team or group member will have their own role. So they'll each have a different role on the team, but you won't have so much a leader - a person who's leading everybody else.
Management teams in the future management trends will have a very strong goal among them; they'll know each other extremely well, and they'll have a deep understanding about energy.
And what you'll find will happen- and I'm sure that many management teams find it happening to some extend already- is that they will all get the same idea, the same message, at the same time. So nobody in the team will have to say, "This is what we're going to do."
They will simply come to the same natural conclusion at around the same time. This will be common in management in the future, because we are beginning to see it now on a small scale. It won't happen like with consensus, where everybody agrees verbally what is going to be done.
So it's like they're just all connecting to the same message because they have a shared goal, which is in fact the goal of the company.
When you have a very cohesive group with very strong energy between the people and one very clear shared goal, this is the kind of thing that can happen.
I can see books being written about the hottest of the future management trends, Viral Management. Because it is a much more powerful and positive model of management than anything that we have at the moment. It naturally creates a win-win for each team member as well as for the project's goal.
But can this be taught to a person? Can a team learn how to better connect to the message that will bring cohesion, inspiration, and action?
Now let's take this a step further. Each team member gets ideas. Everyone gets ideas. But where do ideas come from and how will they be treated in the future?

Intel’s New Communication Platform Boosts Content Processing Capacity Up to 100 Gbps !INTEL ´S NEWS communication-platform-boosts-content-processing-capacity-up-to-100-gbps

Intel makes a full range of processors for mobile computing, desktop computer and server applications. Most of the processors have different capabilities. These differences come in the number of processing cores they have, the features that they have enabled, and the speeds at which they run. The system bus frequency is the speed at which the processor chip communicates with the rest of the computer.

System Buses

  • A computer contains many built-in components. These components have to communicate with each other to function properly. Any delay in this communication slows down a computer. Some of the components of a computer are the processor, memory, cache and storage. A bus is a channel that exchanges information among multiple components and devices. Computer components use access points on the bus to become part of the bus system. This allows these components to send and receive information from other devices. A computer uses different types of buses, including the peripheral controller interface, accelerated graphics port and backside bus.

Bus Speed

  • Speed is a critical component of all computer processors. A slow computer can decrease your productivity by making your work less efficient. The speed of the bus determines the number of bits of information that your computer’s processor can send. The width of the bus directly affects the speed of a computer, and the wider the bus the more information a computer can process in a given time. A bus is, therefore, similar to a highway with multiple lanes. The more lanes the highway has, the less congestion you will typically experience.

In an era when dependency over ‘mobile objects’ is at peak, the challenges of faster data processing and robust network infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges for the industry. And, Chip maker Intel has decided to hold the bull by the horns by not only addressing the complex data-processing more effectively but also trying to satisfying the need of cloud computing environment which will be inevitable in next few years. Intel has introduced the new communication platform - code-named “Crystal Forest” – that empowers the systems, which are under tremendous pressure to address & serve to heavy data-transmission demand, sitting largely in Telecom and Data Center Infra.
With absolute no security concerns, Crystal Forest justifies itself as one of the bests communication platform for faster content processing, responsive cloud computing environment with the transaction speed of up to 100 Gbps. Intel has tried to achieve the benchmark by reducing software dependencies and consolidating packets, application and control processing in Crystal Forest that results in faster and responsive data handling mechanism.
As the internet traffic is spiking up with each passing day, the biggest challenge for service and infrastructure providers is to match the demand without compromising the security and performance. However, they don’t have any cushion to demand more from customers due to immensely growing competition, said R.K. Hiremane – Regional Director, Data Center and Connected Systems Product Marketing, Intel (Asia-Pacific).
The demand of data is bound to grow due to explosive growth in mobile industry. There are 7 Billion connected devices available in 2012 and the number is expected to reach by 15 Billion by 2015. And, with the sizable penetration of 4G LTE, it’s clear that industry needs an effective and highly responsive system in place immediately, he added.

The bioethanol global marketAn Opportunity for Europe?

Ethanol : Ethanol, pure concentrated ethyl alcohol in bottleEthanol : Abstract word cloud for Food energy with related tags and terms Stock PhotoEthanol : New Ethanol Distilation Plant Under Construction
The bioethanol global market crisis will create a strong price increase of the product for the next year and maybe more. This is due to a number of factors affecting the two main world producers: Brazil and the United States. This situation, however, offers a number of opportunities for ethanol projects in Europe, as we’ll show below.
In Brazil, the last three sugarcane crops were close to catastrophic. This year for example, excessive rains in April generated a one-month delay in the start of the harvest period, as the crop cannot be harvested on wet ground since the harvesting machines tend to root it out. That meant a 41% decrease in the amount of cane harvested, the end result being more than fourteen ethanol plants shutting down and several foreign companies selling their facilities. Among these we find the Spanish Abengoa and French Total: the first sold two of its three ethanol plants and the second is selling 53% of its shares of another located in the state of Minas Gerais.
The problem is worsened by the strong international capital inflow in Brazil which allowed a large number of people to finally purchase a car. This led to a considerable increase in fuel use which could not be matched by the local ethanol production (in Brazil almost all cars are flex: this mean they operate with ethanol and gasoline) due to the aforementioned production problems. This created a rather odd situation where Brazil was being forced to import ethanol from the US to cover for its short term needs, but even that did not solve the problem.
This meant that the Brazilian oil company Petrobras was forced to import gasoline again, something I had stopped doing back in 2010 when ethanol use in Brazil actually became larger than gasoline. To make things worse, Dilma Rousseff’s government demanded that gasoline to be sold at subsidized prices in order to prevent inflation. The end effect was that the oil company showed the world's second worst result for the second quarter of 2012 and that the local ethanol market sank even further due to the public's preference for ethanol compared to gasoline due to the latter offering higher mileage (ethanol has 76% of the power of gasoline) and the fact Brazil does not allow diesel cars.
In America, the problem is a little different. The country is facing a disastrous corn harvest due to the worst drought since 1956, and its production is expected to fall by over 15%: the worst for the last seventeen years. To make matters worse, corn is edible and thus suffers from a strong “food x fuel” agenda. And never mind that the varieties used for fuel are not really edible: all of its opponents claim that using corn as fuel will create world famine. Moreover, if we consider that 4 in 10 bushels of corn produced in the US end up as ethanol and that the Renewable Fuels Standard requires 13.2 billion gallons of ethanol to be added to gasoline this year, we will see that, unless the country starts to imports it, it simply won’t have it.
Europe has a unique opportunity to produce ethanol for these two markets, which are the largest consumers in the world. In the specific case of Brazil, the import rate of 20% for ethanol ceased to exist a few years ago, and in the case of the US, the so called VEETC (Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit) which created a import tariff of 54 cents per gallon also was cancelled last year.  This means that there is a market basically free of import taxes of a product which is unable to obtain internally at the required amounts.
So, if there is a right moment to pull from that drawer that old ethanol project, this is it, as both the US and Brazil are unable to generate enough feedstock for their ethanol needs due to environmental reasons in the US and underproduction in Brazil. Many times we heard that the biofuel market in Europe is very limited due to several unsuccessful attempts to implement it (like Germany with the E10), and therefore we have seen little investor interest for cellulosic ethanol or first generation ethanol projects. Well, that problem is partially solved: the U.S. government acknowledges that it will take around five years for its corn production to return to normal, and at least until the Olympics you can be certain Brazilians will continue to purchase cars at abnormal high levels, thus keeping the pressure on its already battered ethanol production.
Both Brazil and the US are countries in which ethanol is already a reality and therefore can hardly live without it, especially in the case of Brazil, where all the pumps carry E100 and everyone mixes it regularly with gasoline. So, regardless on the size of the ethanol market in Europe, those 2 ethanol superpowers markets are there for the taking, so if Europe does not take the lead, others such as India, Australia, etc will. Now is the time.
