Many Strategies Fail Because They’re Not Actually Strategies hbr.org Oct. 3, 2022, 4:59 p.m.
Many strategy execution processes fail because “new strategies” are often not strategies at all. A real strategy involves a clear set of choices that define what the firm is going to do and what it’s not going to do. Many strategies fail to get implemented because they do not represent such a set of clear choices. And many so-called strategies are in fact goals. “We want to be the number one or number two in all the markets in which we operate” is one of those. It does not tell you what you are going to do; all it does is tell you what you hope the outcome will be. But you’ll still need a strategy to achieve it. Another reason why many implementation efforts fail is that executives see it as a pure top-down, two-step process: “The strategy is made; now we implement it.” That’s unlikely to work. A successful strategy execution process is seldom a one-way trickle-down cascade of decisions.

Une encre à base de sang de personnes homosexuelles pour la bonne cause creapills.com Oct. 3, 2022, 10:33 a.m.
Face à la pénurie nationale de don du sang que subissent les États-Unis, l’artiste Stuart Semple a souhaité dénoncer l’injustice qui interdit aux hommes homosexuels de faire don de leur sang d’après une mesure établie par la FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Pour cela, il a imaginé une collection d’encre, peinture et de fournitures à base de vrai sang donné par des hommes homosexuels.

Are there really no new ideas in the world? Has everything been done, said and created — and are now just being recycled? This model takes that question and turns it on its head by leveraging the world’s vast body of knowledge to become more innovative. Idea Sex is the process of finding unusual combinations between established ideas or mental models to create something new and unique as a result.
Intrapreneurship Rising www.nutanix.com Oct. 3, 2022, 10:20 a.m.
The paradox of being an ambidextrous leader is in balancing the need for your company to be agile and fast in getting products and services to market with the realization that your innovation ventures will probably have a long time horizon. In this way, ambidextrous leaders are like venture capitalists. They have to invest in multiple bets over time, knowing that it could take five to ten years for one of them to mature and hit its growth stride.

‘Silent’ Ion-Propulsion Drone Advances Towards Commercial Use For Deliveries designtaxi.com Sept. 26, 2022, 10:03 a.m.
Air particles are ionized by two interconnected boards within the flying device. These boards, meant to generate high-powered electric fields, can turn oxygen and nitrogen into electrons to produce positive charges. These positively charged ions are then cast downwards to create a wind tunnel that can thrust the Silent Ventus into the air. The company claims its “Air Thruster” system can push its unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) 150% higher into the air than other systems.

3D nanoprinting using semiconductor quantum dots to create optoelectrical materials nano-magazine.com Sept. 19, 2022, 9:02 p.m.
A team of researchers from Tsinghua University, working with a colleague from Jilin University, has developed a new 3D nanoprinting technique that uses semiconducting quantum dots. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their new technique and provides examples of resulting 3D objects. Jia-Ahn Pan and Dmitri Talapin with the University of Chicago provide a Perspective piece in the same journal issue regarding more versatile 3D printing devices and the work done by the team on this new effort.
Innovation for Flexible/Stretchable Printed Electronics, Nano/Micro-printing for Semiconductors Application www.semicontaiwan.org Sept. 14, 2022, 5:22 p.m.
Miniaturization is a must today, but so is the demand for small series production. However, the price of physical deposition methods being important, the use of nano printing is essential. It is in this sense that the company Hummink was created. Hummink makes it possible to carry out printings of any type of ink (conductive, dielectric, quantum) from 100 nm to 50 µm.

3D nanoprinting using semiconductor quantum dots to create optoelectrical materials phys.org Sept. 12, 2022, 12:57 p.m.
The use of 3D printing to make three-dimensional objects has expanded greatly over the past decade, leading to new products and faster ways to create demonstration objects. But, as the researchers with this new effort note, 3D printers primarily use materials based on polymers, limiting the type of products that can be made. Manufacturers say they would buy 3D printers capable of printing products with optical or electronic properties. In this new effort, the researchers in China have taken a big step in that direction.

Ancient engineers may have built pyramids using hidden landscape- here's how interestingengineering.com Sept. 2, 2022, 6:21 p.m.
In light of the research, archaeologists have suggested that perhaps the pyramids were built by Egyptian pyramid workers who put to good use the Nile's annual floods. These ancient engineers could have built canals and harbors designed so that floods acted as hydraulic elevators for lifting building materials.
