Clever legislation stops branding on cigarette packets
Australia led the world in mandating plain packaging for tobacco in 2012. It also requires warnings on packs. The warning on the side of this pack says "The toxic chemicals in tobacco smoke can go everywhere that your blood flows, causing harm all over your body". This year the British Medical Journal published results of separate studies on the impact of plain packaging on the public indicating the laws were producing positive health outcomes.

A better way to transport water in developing countries
Wello has researched ways to improve the efficiency of water transport and storage in developing countries to help people who have to walk long distances while carrying buckets of water. Based on their research they developed a prototype for a pushable high-quality plastic container called the WaterWheel. It uses the same principle as the Hippo roller which is currently in use throughout Africa. www.wellowater.org

An important keynote speaker at your event who's a hoax
Rodney Marks is a corporate comedian. He's based in Sydney and performed around the world. His comic hoax routine relates to the Impostor Syndrome. Many people feel unworthy of their senior roles, and are (unjustifiably) fearful of being caught out as frauds. This insecurity is almost never based on a genuine deficit of talent, skills or experience. It's a lack of confidence. When we see a comedy performance by a corporate impostor, we're reminded of the importance of confidence by a confidence trickster in a safe environment and it's great fun. Rodney says his fees are risable! www.comedian.com.au

Why crime in NY declined
IdeaSpies attended the last lecture given by Professor Kenneth Jackson today after 40 years of lectures on history and social sciences at Columbia University. He attributed the decline in crime in NY since the mid 90's to factors such as more aggressive policing, handgun control, an aging population and abortions reducing unwanted children, which should interest other cities concerned about crime rates.
