TL;DR: In this paper, the authors proposed a model of entrepreneurial potential based on a social psychology perspective, which draws on cognition-based literature on intentions and theory and Albert Shapero's model of the entrepreneurial event, and builds on two previous models.
Abstract: Offers a model of entrepreneurial potential based on a social psychology perspective; the approach is a process-based, theory-driven micro-model. The model draws on cognition-based literature on intentions and theory and Albert Shapero's model of the entrepreneurial event, and builds on two previous models. In Ajzen's theory of planned behavior, three key attitudes predict intentions: attitude toward the act, social norms, and perceived behavior control. In Shapero's model, human behavior is governed by inertia until it is interrupted or displaced; the choice of resultant behavior (i.e., entrepreneurial event) depends on credibility of alternatives and some propensity to act (which constitute potential), which exist prior to the displacement. The proposed model has three major components: (1) perceived venture desirability, which comprises "attitude toward the act" and social norms; (2) perceived venture feasibility, which is a person's perceived ability to execute some target behavior; and (3) propensity to act. The first two components create credibility, which when combined with the third create potential. Potential coupled with interruption or displacement creates the intention. Some prescriptions for public policy are offered. Public policies must foster environments congenial to creating potential entrepreneurs; policies must increase the perceived feasibility and desirability for entrepreneurs; and they must support the general perception that entrepreneurial activity is both desirable and feasible. For corporations, individuals must perceive positive outcomes for internal venturing, plus intrinsic rewards and supportive culture; management must show commitment to risk-taking and innovation. In all, creating perceived feasibility is paramount. (TNM)

TL;DR: The potential for entrepreneurship must be identified before there can be entrepreneurship, whether in a community seeking to develop or in a large organization seeking to innovate as mentioned in this paper, and there must be an incentive for entrepreneurship.

TL;DR: A high-quality draft sequence of the N. crassa genome is reported, suggesting that RIP has had a profound impact on genome evolution, greatly slowing the creation of new genes through genomic duplication and resulting in a genome with an unusually low proportion of closely related genes.
Abstract: Neurospora crassa is a central organism in the history of twentieth-century genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology. Here, we report a high-quality draft sequence of the N. crassa genome. The approximately 40-megabase genome encodes about 10,000 protein-coding genes—more than twice as many as in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe and only about 25% fewer than in the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster. Analysis of the gene set yields insights into unexpected aspects of Neurospora biology including the identification of genes potentially associated with red light photobiology, genes implicated in secondary metabolism, and important differences in Ca21 signalling as compared with plants and animals. Neurospora possesses the widest array of genome defence mechanisms known for any eukaryotic organism, including a process unique to fungi called repeat-induced point mutation (RIP). Genome analysis suggests that RIP has had a profound impact on genome evolution, greatly slowing the creation of new genes through genomic duplication and resulting in a genome with an unusually low proportion of closely related genes.

TL;DR: For example, this paper investigated the career expectations and priorities of members of the "millennial" generation (born in or after 1980) and explored differences among this cohort related to demographic factors (i.e., gender, race, and year of study) and academic performance.
Abstract: This study investigated the career expectations and priorities of members of the “millennial” generation (born in or after 1980) and explored differences among this cohort related to demographic factors (i.e., gender, race, and year of study) and academic performance. Data were obtained from a national survey of millennial undergraduate university students from across Canada (N = 23,413). Data were analyzed using various multivariate techniques to assess the impacts of demographic variables and academic achievement on career expectations and priorities. Millennials placed the greatest importance on individualistic aspects of a job. They had realistic expectations of their first job and salary but were seeking rapid advancement and the development of new skills, while also ensuring a meaningful and satisfying life outside of work. Our results suggest that Millennials’ expectations and values vary by gender, visible minority status, GPA, and year of study, but these variables explain only a small proportion of variance. Changing North American demographics have created a crisis in organizations as they strive to recruit and retain the millennial generation, who purportedly hold values, attitudes, and expectations that are significantly different from those of the generations of workers that preceded them. A better understanding of the Millennials’ career expectations and priorities helps employers to create job offerings and work environments that are more likely to engage and retain millennial workers. This is a large-sample study that provides benchmark results for the millennial generation, which can be compared to results from other generational cohorts, and to millennial cohorts in the future as they progress through their life-cycle. This is one of the few studies that examines demographic heterogeneity within the millennial cohort.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a framework for a customer-centric approach to sustainability, which recasts the sustainability metric to emphasize the outcomes of business actions measured holistically in terms of environmental, personal and economic well-being of the consumer.
Abstract: How effectively business deals with the challenges of sustainability will define its success for decades to come. Current sustainability strategies have three major deficiencies: they do not directly focus on the customer, they do not recognize the looming threats from rising global over-consumption, and they do not take a holistic approach. We present a framework for a customer-centric approach to sustainability. This approach recasts the sustainability metric to emphasize the outcomes of business actions measured holistically in term of environmental, personal and economic well-being of the consumer. We introduce the concept of mindful consumption (MC) as the guiding principle in this approach. MC is premised on a consumer mindset of caring for self, for community, and for nature, that translates behaviorally into tempering the self-defeating excesses associated with acquisitive, repetitive and aspirational consumption. We also make the business case for fostering mindful consumption, and illustrate how the marketing function can be harnessed to successfully implement the customer-centric approach to sustainability.
