No one can read the future in tea leaves, but at Revolution, we know that you can see where markets are headed by paying attention to which companies are fulfilling unmet consumer demand. Market sectors, after all, are made up of individuals expressing their desires through their purchases.
The most successful companies are those that understand what is missing from the market and then deliver a consistently excellent product. Revolution believes in the visionaries who launch and lead these companies – and we give them tools to enhance and accelerate their success.
For example, Revolution recently launched Revolution Health Group, a leading consumer-centric health company founded to transform how people improve their health by putting consumers at the center of the health system, with better choices, more convenience and more control. The cornerstone of Revolution Health is RevolutionHealth.com, a free, comprehensive health and medical information site, specifically designed with the Family's Chief Medical Officer - women and other caregivers - in mind.

DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need.
Here's how it works: public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.
Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school.
You'll get photos of your project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If you give over $100, you'll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.
At DonorsChoose.org, you can give as little as $1 and get the same level of choice, transparency, and feedback that is traditionally reserved for someone who gives millions. We call it citizen philanthropy.

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK, TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Program, the new TEDx community program, this year's TEDIndia Conference and the annual TED Prize.
The annual conferences in Long Beach and Oxford bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).
On TED.com, we make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free. More than 500 TEDTalks are now available, with more added each week. All of the talks feature closed captions in English, and many feature subtitles in various languages. These videos are released under a Creative Commons license, so they can be freely shared and reposted.

Our mission: Spreading ideas.
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we're building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other. This site, launched April 2007, is an ever-evolving work in progress, and you're an important part of it. Have an idea? We want to hear from you.
The TED Conference, held annually in Long Beach, is still the heart of TED. More than a thousand people now attend -- indeed, the event sells out a year in advance -- and the content has expanded to include science, business, the arts and the global issues facing our world. Over four days, 50 speakers each take an 18-minute slot, and there are many shorter pieces of content, including music, performance and comedy. There are no breakout groups. Everyone shares the same experience. It shouldn't work, but it does. It works because all of knowledge is connected. Every so often it makes sense to emerge from the trenches we dig for a living, and ascend to a 30,000-foot view, where we see, to our astonishment, an intricately interconnected whole.
TEDGlobal is TED's twin conference. It was held in Oxford, UK, in 2005, and then in Arusha, Tanzania, in 2007. TEDGlobal is now held annually in Oxford, starting July 2009. The themes of the global conference are slightly more international in nature, but the full TED format is maintained.
TEDActive features a live simulcast of the Long Beach conference, in fabulous Palm Springs, with an emphasis on connection, conversation and creation.
TEDIndia was held in November 2009 in Mysore, India, celebrating and exploring the beckoning future of South Asia.
The TED Prize is designed to leverage the TED Community's exceptional array of talent and resources. It is awarded annually to three exceptional individuals who each receive $100,000 and, much more important, the granting of "One Wish to Change the World." After several months of preparation, they unveil their wish at an award ceremony held during the TED Conference. These wishes have led to collaborative initiatives with far-reaching impact.
TEDTalks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at TED with the world. Under the moniker "ideas worth spreading," talks were released online. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. Indeed, the reaction was so enthusiastic that the entire TED website has been reengineered around TEDTalks, with the goal of giving everyone on-demand access to the world's most inspiring voices.
The TED Open Translation Project brings TEDTalks beyond the English-speaking world by offering subtitles, interactive transcripts and the ability for any talk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. We launched the project with more than 250 translations, 50 languages and 100 volunteer translators. It's an ambitious project (generously supported by our sponsor Nokia) that radically enhances the accessibility of the talks -- for the hearing-impaired, for whose who speak English as a second language, for search engines (which can now index the full transcript of a talk), and of course for the vast audience of non-English speakers worldwide.
Today, TED is therefore best thought of as a global community. It's a community welcoming people from every discipline and culture who have just two things in common: they seek a deeper understanding of the world, and they hope to turn that understanding into a better future for us all.

A dozen years after the breakthrough debut of Jagged Little Pill, an album which earned four Grammys, sold 30 million records and spawned a dedicated worldwide fan base, Alanis Morissette remains not only an enduringly popular artist, but one whose success stems from a fierce commitment to authenticity and, to an equal extent, vulnerability. Both of these traits enable her to climb to new ground on her new Maverick/Reprise album, Flavors of Entanglement.
Her current collaborator is British electronica producer Guy Sigsworth (Bjork, Imogen Heap), who co-wrote the music with Morissette and produced the album. Nearly two dozen songs were born from writing sessions in London and Los Angeles and eleven were selected for the final cut of Flavors of Entanglement. While hewing to a familiar process creating songs as snapshots of her life Morissette found cathartic support during a big transition in her life. "I often write in retrospect, but this time all was written in real time," she says. "These songs served as an outlet and marking of this massively growthful time."
Her penchant for eclecticism, whether musical, spiritual or otherwise, brought new sounds and styles into this latest effort, her first original studio album in four years. Eastern percussion and strings blend with electronic hues in the opening track, "Citizen of the Planet," a poetic narrative of her life story and transnational perspective. Morissette's yin/yang view of the microcosmic self being evidenced in the macrocosmic world extends to lead single "Underneath," which reflects the quote: "don't try to carpet the world just wear slippers."
While deconstructing human behavior in the jarring "Versions of Violence," Morissette offers a more personal take on being on the receiving end of crazy-making behavior with songs such as the hard-driving "Straitjacket," the hauntingly beautiful lost-love lament of "Torch," the clear declaration of "Moratorium," the hypnotic ebb and flow of "Tapes," and grateful in the aspirational "In Praise of the Vulnerable Man." Morissette explores the often cyclical nature of learning in tracks such as the pensive, rock bottom-capturing "Not As We," and the ecstatic freedom of "Giggling Again for No Reason," before wrapping with the Phoenix-rising closure of "Incomplete."
"There's not another artistmale or femalewho can take you on the kind of emotional journey that Alanis can," says Sigsworth. "She has this ginormous, super-massive, planet-eating emotional range. She goes all the way-10 on the Richter Scale-and we're at the epicenter with her as she sings whole worlds into existence. She can be raging and hostile, distraught and desolately heartbroken, glowingly nostalgic, sensual, breezy and self-deprecating-all in one album."
Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, and Germany, Alanis Morissette began playing piano at the age of six, started to write songs at the age of nine and discovered a love of words and dance at an early age. At 11 she joined the cast of "You Can't Do That On Television," a popular children's television program. She used some of the money she made on that show to start a record company with a friend and fund an independent single called "Fate Stay With Me." At fourteen, Morissette signed a publishing contract and eventually a record deal with MCA Canada, releasing the album Alanis in 1991, which went platinum and for which she won Canada's Juno Award for Most Promising Female Artist. Her follow-up album, Now Is The Time, was released the following year.
It was 1994, when Morissette came to the U.S. and began working with producer Glen Ballard, that she found her own voice as a singer-songwriter. "I was 19 when I first felt that writing was a channeled experience. That has a lot to do with where I was at then, having met Glen, moving from Canada and moving away from any preconceived notions of how songs 'should' be written. It was the beginning of a new way to approach songwriting altogether," she explains, "I was old enough to be able to write autobiographically and stand by the philosophical subject matter in my songs."
The result of their collaboration was Jagged Little Pill (Maverick Records), an emotionally raw collection of songs that introduced Morissette to the world and broke countless records worldwide. With heavy-rotation singles like "You Oughta Know," "Head Over Feet," "Hand in My Pocket" and "Ironic," it became the best-selling debut album by a female artist in the U.S., and the highest-selling debut album worldwide. Jagged Little Pill won four Grammys in all, including Album of the Year and Best Rock Album, and Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for "You Oughta Know." A fifth Grammy for Best Music Video Long-Form was bestowed upon Morissette for her music documentary: Jagged Little Pill Live. Morissette hauled in two more Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for the string-laden rock ballad "Uninvited", written for the Wim Wenders remake of City of Angels which hit #1 on Billboard's Top 40 Mainstream chart.
Her next album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with record-setting first-week sales of nearly 470,000 copies. The Grammy-nominated single "Thank U" also reached #1 on the Adult Top 40 chart and #2 on Top 40 Mainstream. The MTV acoustic forum "Unplugged" yielded Alanis Unplugged in 1999.
Throughout the first half of the new decade, Alanis Morissette continued evidencing that she was an artist with something to say, and she would say it in her own distinct way. In 2002 Under Rug Swept debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, its single "Hands Clean" reaching #3 on the Adult Top 40 chart. Two years later came So-Called Chaos, whose single "Everything" became an Adult Top 40 mainstay and "Eight Easy Steps" became a club hit as a dance mix. Morissette celebrated the ten-year anniversary of her breakthrough album with 2005's Jagged Little Pill Acoustic. In November of that year, The Collection amassed a best-of anthology with 17 tracks that delivered favorites from previous albums as well as a well-received cover of Seal's "Crazy" (an interesting foreshadowing, as it was originally co-written and produced by her future Flavors of Entanglement collaborator Guy Sigsworth).
Achieving success as a recording and performing artist, Morissette has lent her talents to other albums and forums. She's been a guest vocalist on Ringo Starr's cover of "Drift Away" on his album Vertical Man, "Don't Drink the Water" and "Spoon" on the Dave Matthews Band album Before These Crowded Streets and other CDs. She wrote "Still" for the soundtrack of the controversial film Dogma and, after steadfast offerings by director Kevin Smith, agreed to play the role of God.
More recently Morissette appeared in the Cole Porter biopic De-Lovely and performed the classic "Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)," also contributing the song "Wunderkind" to the soundtrack of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (earning a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song). As well as the aforementioned song entitled "Uninvited", written for City of Angels, she contributed songs for the movies Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks II, The Break-Up and The Devil Wears Prada; on screen her other acting work includes roles on HBO's "Sex and the City" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" along with a three-episode arc on FX's "Nip/Tuck." On stage, Morissette starred in The Vagina Monologues and in the off-Broadway play, (in both New York and London) The Exonerated as death row inmate Sunny Jacobs. She recently completed her first lead film role as "Sylvia" in the film adaptation of Philip K Dick's novel Radio Free Albemuth.
She delivered one of the most memorable performances of her career last year with a riotous parody of the Black Eyed Peas' hit "My Humps." Entertainment Weekly lauded the YouTube sensation, which has been viewed more than 13.5 million times to date, as one of the top downloads of '07 and praised Alanis for "revisiting the age-old question, 'What you gonna do with all that ass, all that ass inside them jeans?'"
Among a breadth of charity work, Morissette especially finds time to support environmental causes and organizations, such as Reverb, a non-profit that helps musicians and music fans to achieve environmental sustainability through carbon-neutral initiatives. Morissette was one of the first artists to have her "Feast on Scraps" CD and DVD materials on recycled paper. Initially she paid for this out of her own pocket, but now it's becoming an industry standard. Her passions also include women's issues and artists' rights on behalf of which she has written several articles as well as spoken to congress.
A dozen years after the world was first turned on to Alanis Morissette, a more mature artist remains committed to her creative path and a strong desire to help others on theirs. "I live to HEAL ruptures and bridge the human and the divine aspects of life, and I hope that by sharing my own experiences through speaking, writing and art, I can support people in their personal journeys, wherever they may be at," she explains. "The initial writing is for me, and the sharing of it is my offering to others to make these songs and writings their own. For people to derive comfort, inspiration, validation or self-definition in accordance to what I write or how I live...this is my service."
Google Street View logs WiFi networks, Mac addresses
Google's roving Street View spycam may blur your face, but it's got your number. The Street View service is under fire in Germany for scanning private WLAN networks, and recording users' unique Mac (Media Access Control) addresses, as the car trundles along.
Germany's Federal Commissioner for Data Protection Peter Schaar says he's "horrified" by the discovery.
"I am appalled… I call upon Google to delete previously unlawfully collected personal data on the wireless network immediately and stop the rides for Street View," according to German broadcaster ARD.

Peter Mel, born November 24, 1969 in Santa Cruz, California, is a professional surf boarder. Mel began his surfing life in Capitola, California before moving on to Santa Cruz. His father, John, who started the family business, Freeline Surf Design, the same year Pete was born, John made his boards over the years and gradually brought his son under his shaping wing. In the shadow of Steamer Lane locals Vince Collier, Kevin Reed and especially Richard Schmidt, Mel rose quickly through the line-up ranks with an unprecedented crop of young surfers. He idolized Schmidt for his casual demeanor on land and his bravery in larger surf. Like Schmidt, he would spend many winters in Hawaii, enjoying the less-restrictive conditions and developing his signature style, not to mention a taste for the big stuff.
Throughout the ’90s, Mel found moderate success on the domestic and ASP World Tour Qualifying Series, before finally finding his niche during California’s El Nino winter of 1997-98. At the age of 29, when most pros are hanging up their jerseys and looking hard for careers in the surfing industry, Mel was really just coming into his own.
Peter Mel at Mavericks.jpg
Known in Santa Cruz as the “Condor” for his extreme wingspan (A nickname Mel was less than fond of) , Pete was a shoo-in to claim the $50,000 Billabong XXL Big-Wave Challenge, for paddling into the winter’s biggest wave, but this was not to be and pete ended up just short of the honor that year. Mel finished eighth in the 1998 Surfer Magazine Reader’s Poll Awards and established himself as California’s premier big-wave rider. Today, Mel continues to shape and help run Freeline Surf Shop, the family business in Santa Cruz. As a shaper, he sees new materials as being the wave of the future. “With shaping,” he admits, “there’s not much more you can do, but the materials are going to get far lighter and stronger.” He has also acknowledges the limitations of paddle-in surfing and jumped directly to the forefront of the tow-in frenzy during the end of the 90's. On October 28, 1999, at Mavericks, he was towed into the biggest wave ever ridden on the West Coast. He still chases surf around the world, but chooses to spend most of his time focusing on his family and riding Mavericks, just an hour up the road. Mel lives on the East Side of Santa Cruz in the Pleasure Point area and is currently married with two children.
The official Coldplay website, featuring all the latest news, gigs, blogs, interviews, pictures and videos.
Coldplay are a British alternative rock band. Formed in London in 1997, the group comprises Chris Martin (lead vocals, keyboards, guitar), Jonny Buckland (lead guitar), Guy Berryman (bass guitar), and Will Champion (drums, backing vocals, other instruments).
Coldplay's early material was compared to acts such as Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, U2, and Travis. They achieved worldwide fame with the release of the single "Yellow", followed by their debut album, Parachutes (2000), which was nominated for the Mercury Prize. The band's second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), won multiple awards, including NME's Album of the Year. Their next release, X&Y (2005), received a slightly less enthusiastic yet still generally positive reception. The band's fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008), was produced by Brian Eno and released again to largely favourable reviews, earning several Grammy nominations and wins. Coldplay have sold over 50 million records worldwide.
Since the release of Parachutes, Coldplay have drawn influence from other sources, including Echo & the Bunnymen, Kate Bush, George Harrison and Muse on A Rush of Blood to the Head, Johnny Cash and Kraftwerk for X&Y and Blur, Arcade Fire and My Bloody Valentine on Viva la Vida.Coldplay have been an active supporter of various social and political causes, such as Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign and Amnesty International. The group have also performed at various charity projects such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, Sound Relief, Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief, and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
When The Little Stevies released their debut EP ‘Grow Up’ in 2006, it wasn’t without a sense of irony. Their first national release marked their 22nd year as an artistic unit – even if the first three of these were spent in diapers.
Founding members, sisters Sibylla and Bethany and their life-long friend Robin, did indeed grow up together, the offspring of two musical families whose members once formed part of an ARIA-winning pop band in the 1970s. It’s their long history of collaboration coupled with their relatively young age that makes their sound unique: exquisite three-part harmonies that soar above terrific pop melodies and catchy guitar hooks. Since 2008, their sound’s been expanded and matured by the band’s newest member, multi-instrumentalist Josh Barber on drums and percussion.
Over the last four years The Little Stevies have built up a reputation across Australia as an exceptional live act and attracted an army of loyal fans won over by their honest charm, witty banter and, not least of all, unique song-writing. Their lyrics are a mixture of the personal and the profound, each song a story that audiences are always keen to hear retold.
In 2009 The Little Stevies released their debut album Love Your Band. On the back of this widely praised work, the band have gone from strength to strength, wowing festival audiences, selling out major venues and, more recently, being invited to showcase at the International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, Tennessee in February 2010. The music video for 'Sunshower', the first single from Love Your Band, has been nominated for an Inside Film Award, and the band recently released a short film to accompany their latest single 'Dink You', featuring the band circumnavigating the globe by bike.

Born in New Zealand, I have the dubious honour of being the first independent artist to achieve play-listing on New Zealand national radio with an original track. I moved to the UK in 2000 to pursue my music following very positive reviews in Sound on Sound and The Mix....however life took over.
In 2009 I finally returned to the studio, recording my second album, BlindSight, with Swedish producer, Milton. The story of how we met involves me falling down the stairs outside his bar the night of his 30th Birthday.....his first image of me was bruised and bleeding with shredded stockings! I like to make an unforgettable entrance...
I started writing when I was 13, after my original present of a pony was exchanged for a guitar following incompatibility issues (Psych 101, the reason for my fear of falling!) Writing has always been cathartic for me, my music the best way to express whatever it is Life is taking me through at the time.
While I play both guitar and piano, I am really more of a 'functional guitarist'. Fortunately I'm being joined by some very talented musicians in the creation of BlindSight, which is scheduled for release in March 2010.
Meanwhile please join me on Twitter (Follow Me On Twitter) and FaceBook (Join Me on FaceBook ) for latest updates and videos from the studio.
(April 22) -- From climate change to increased global air pollution, numerous challenges face the planet. But on the 40th anniversary Earth Day, AOL News asked two leading voices on the environment to reflect on the greatest triumphs of the past few decades.
MicroPlace’s mission is to help alleviate global poverty by enabling everyday people to make investments in the world’s working poor.
Our idea is simple.
Microfinance institutions around the world have discovered an effective way to help the world’s working poor lift themselves out of poverty. These organizations need capital to expand and reach more of the working poor. At the same time, millions of everyday people here in the United States are looking for ways to make investments that yield a financial return while making a positive impact on the world. MicroPlace simply connects investors with microfinance institutions looking for funds.
The result: more microfinance in the world, satisfied investors, and above all, fewer people living in poverty.
