Global central bankers, stuck at zero, unite in plea for help from governments
Central bankers in charge of the vast bulk of the world's economy delved deep into the weeds of money markets and interest rates over a three-day conference here, and emerged with a common plea to their colleagues in the rest of government: please help

Mired in a world of low growth, low inflation and low interest rates, officials from the Federal Reserve, Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank said their efforts to bolster the economy through monetary policy may falter unless elected leaders stepped forward with bold measures. These would range from immigration reform in Japan to structural changes to boost productivity and growth in the U.S. and Europe.

Without that, they said, it would be hard to convince markets and households that things will get better, and encourage the shift in mood many economists feel are needed to improve economic performance worldwide. During a Saturday session at the symposium, such a slump in expectations about inflation and about other aspects of the economy was cited as a central problem complicating central banks’ efforts to reach inflation targets and dimming prospects in Japan and Europe.

USA Cycling gets a cognitive advantage.

Since their last trip to the podium this spring, American cyclists in the Women’s Team Pursuit have been taking precious seconds off their times by training with an IBM Cloud cognitive solution.

Each team member’s anaerobic muscle capacity and wattage output is tracked in real time through sensors, along with cyclist sequencing and track locations. The program then analyzes the data to help them make game-changing pacing and switching decisions, and provides feedback to the riders’ eyewear. It’s been one small part of USA Cycling’s performance improvement in 2016 – congrats Sarah, Chloe, Ruth, Kelly and Jennifer!

Will a merged Tesla-SolarCity put a solar-powered battery in every home?

by W. Rocky Newman

One year ago Tesla Motors announced plans to build its Gigafactory to produce huge numbers of batteries, giving life to the old saying, “if you want something done right, do it yourself.”

By making electric car batteries that Tesla used to buy from others, CEO Elon Musk adopted a strategy made famous by Henry Ford – build a vertically integrated company that controls the many stages of production. By integrating “backward” into its supply chain, Musk is betting Tesla can improve the performance and lower the costs of batteries for its vehicles.

Now, Musk wants Tesla to acquire SolarCity for similar reasons, but with a slightly different twist.

I found inspiring words by Malcolm X, “ There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time.”

Adversity is essential in life. It helps to bring appreciation for the sun to have clouds block its view.
