Just came across this site that I think you would really like.It is not some new site selling something, but rather it is part of the "Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative" – the European Commission’s new flagship programme working on building a more democratic, inclusive and resilient internet. The NGI “hopes to empower everyone to take active control in shaping the future: the internet does not just belong to those who hold power today, but to all of us.”It's a beautiful site. An interactive timeline charts the past (eg: "Wikipedia founded in 2001") and the future (eg: "2039 we run out of lithium and can’t make new smartphones.")It also has lots of interesting articles including an interview with Oobah Butler, who famously got a completely fake restaurant to the top spot on TripAdvisor, who shows the flaws in the systems that influence us.It got me thinking about such things as "what happens when your language isn’t supported by apps, websites, and keyboards?"

I am so pleased to say that Brigitte's site is now live. Her work is amazing, Brigitte herself is absolutely lovely to work with. The gorgeous imagery is showcased in a fluid fashion that is easy to access for busy directors and agents.
Well, back to work after one of our busiest summers...

Just launched a site for the Actors’ Benevolent Fund, which has been working to support London actors and stage managers experiencing hardship due to injury, illness or old age - for the past 135 years. This charity is almost as old as Canada!
Over it’s long history, it has been bequeathed many original costume illustrations, pieces of art and writings from some of the most renowned artists in the industry. Much of this will appear in the Archive section of the site, finally being available to the public for the first time.
The site also features a History page that tells its story. It is a good read, as it is quite eventful!
We are grateful to work for such an amazing organisation.
Have a nice Easter Long Weekend! As you know, we have just had one of our busiest few months here at MOTHandRUST London, which has been great, but I do look forward to getting back to sharing news more regularly.
21 April 2017Hi MLE,
We just launched a new site and brand for the Kavli NDI Institute!
The Kavli Foundation is dedicated to advancing science for the benefit of humanity, promoting public understanding of scientific research, and supporting scientists and their work.
Much like the Nobel Prize, the Kavli Prize is a prestigious prize awarded every year for advances in astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience, and is honoured by the US President at an Oval Office reception.
The Kavli Foundation is also actively involved in establishing research institutes at the best universities across the globe (e.g., MIT, Cambridge, Tokyo). Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore was one of the most recently awarded an institute, and the Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute was launched this year.
In the last 25 years there has been an incredible expansion of knowledge regarding the molecular components of the brain, the development of remarkable new technologies to measure, image and manipulate the brain, as well as dramatic enhancement in computational capacities that give us the ability to define the structure, function and malleability of discrete brain circuits. One daunting aspect of this extraordinary opportunity in brain research is the sheer volume, variety, and complexity of modern neuroscientific data.
Neuroscience still lacks effective tools for managing these massively large data sets. Kavli NDI researchers are filling this gap by finding new ways to organize, analyze, and extract meaning from neurodata. They plan to lead the transformation toward big data-driven neuroscience and in so doing accelerate the pace of discovery.
Answering the questions that are most important is no longer achievable by a single individual or lab, or even by a single department or center. Rather, novel insights will come from establishing deep, long-lasting, transdisciplinary collaborations that combine the efforts of scientists with diverse expertise to understand the emergent behaviors of systems as complex as the human brain.
The Kavli NDI mission is to advance neuroscience discovery by uniting neuroscience, engineering and computational data science to understand the structure and function of the brain.
14 October 2016Hi MLE,Today in London, a project as ambitious in scope as the Human Genome Project was announced: the Human Cell Atlas.This would describe every cell in the human body (approx 35 trillion of them) in a vast atlas that could transform researchers' understanding of human development and disease. If successful, it could impact almost every aspect of biology and medicine in the decades to come.This will be a global effort, that will likely take over a decade to complete, convened buy Wellcome and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the UK and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.“The Human Cell Atlas is the most exciting initiative to come out of the life science community in a long time. In sickness and in health, cells are the fundamental units of life, and only by knowing our cells will we be able to fully comprehend the mechanisms of human disease.”- Prof Sten Linnarsson, Professor of Molecular Systems Biology from the Karolinska InstituteMOTHandRUST was honoured to be involved in the branding and site:Suzan
