Business Seminars: Complelexity Symposium – Co-sponsered by Santa Fe Institute, LSE and EXYSTENCE 25/26 March 04, London
Posted by Eve Mitleton-Kelly on Thursday, January 29, 2004


Exystence Project NewsComplexity Science and 21st Century Issues

The Santa Fe Institute, USA, the European Commission and the London School of Economics and Political Science are co-sponsoring a 2-day Symposium to celebrate 20 years of complexity research at the SFI as well as the work being done by European scientists as part of the European Complex Systems Network of Excellence known as ‘Exystence’, which is funded by the Future Emerging Technologies section of the European Commission. The hosts are the Complexity Research Programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

The Symposium aims to bring this work to the attention of the business community and government and to thus open up a necessary dialogue between academia, business and government. We are therefore inviting senior business professionals and government officials, together with academics to join us at this momentous meeting.

Programme and application form are available here

Topical workshops: Topical Workshop “Barriers to Business”, Budapest, June 11-12, 04
Posted by Gerard Weisbuch on Monday, January 05, 2004


Exystence Project NewsExploring Why Complexity Science Cannot Yet be Routinely Effectively Used in the Real World of Business. Budapest, Hungary, June 11-12, 2004.

Workshop Organizers: John Casti, Gabor Vattay, Gerard Weisbuch.

Goals of the Workshop: To discuss the difficulties and the opportunities for the use of the concepts, tools, and methods of complexity science for solving real-world business problems. For the most part, the workshop will examine the barriers—theoretical, technological, psychological, social—to the use of complex systems ideas in dealing with questions in business. For this reason, the workshop participants should mostly be people who have been actively engaged in the attempt to employ these ideas in business, not simply academics interested in possibly using complexity science for theoretical exercises.

Using Olive Oil For Skin Care

If you have decided to incorporate more natural ingredients into your health and beauty regimen, you may consider using olive oil for skin care. Not only is it one of the most versatile oils you can use for your overall care, but it is also commonly found. Olive oil can be used on a daily basis and is especially ideal for those who have sensitive skin and cannot use harsh and abrasive products made with chemicals. In fact, olive oil can be used on its own as a cleanser and moisturizer.

However, you can combine olive oil with other organic ingredients to create other products that can help you with your health and beauty goals. For instance, olive oil with sugar and scented oil can make a decent skin scrub. You may also combine it with honey to cleanse and moisturize the skin. Olive oil with sugar or salt alone is not only a good exfoliant but also a good way to fight skin conditions such as acne and blackheads. With so many uses for olive oil, you can find recipes that are geared toward helping you fight whatever skin problems you face whether it is simply dry skin or a condition like psoriasis.
