New Zealand 2012 - Day 2

We stayed at the Shotover Top 10 Holiday Park that is located here:

The place is beautiful and is very convenient if you use own transport. It's easy to get to Coronet Peak by using NZSki bus from there or from the Coronet Peak Hotel which is further up the hill.
Little issue will be to buy tickets to the NZSki bus. Tickets are not sold by Shotover Top 10 Holiday Park and you will need to buy it in Queenstown or at the following hotels: Coronet Peak Hotel, Shotover Lodge.
Here's the link to mountain bus details: http://www.nzski.com/guides/2011/queenstown/snowline.jsp
It's very convenient even if you travel with children and don't hire a car or don't have your own transport.

Energy Business Case - Coal Mine in West Virginia

Situation Coal in Africa: An opportunity is available to invest in a coal mine in West Virginia. The mine’s value is less than in past years because of actual and anticipated restrictions on coal-fired power generation in the United States. However, the mine has a chance to sell its coal on contract to a public utility in West Africa. The utility is working through the World Bank for financing to build a number of coal-fired power plants. If they obtain World Bank financing, then a customer for the coal mine is assured, at least for the duration of the contracts. The power plants will employ the best current technology for burning coal, which exceeds all current air quality standards for the region. However, the power plants will not be designed to attempt carbon capture. The area of Africa the plants will serve suffers from extreme energy poverty, with some of the lowest per capita energy consumption in the world.

Mastering The Multitasking

There is usually two distinct perspectives on multi-tasking:

1. Multitasking is counterproductive. We get distracted by multiple tasks that all get our way and fight for our scarce attention, time and resources. This leads to a common fallacy that if you do multiple activities “at a time” you are not doing good work in any of those.

2. Multitasking is a way of getting many things done in a short period of time or in a long run.

Indeed it can be either a disaster or a great helper depending on how it is used and practiced.

Most recent research shows that we don’t do multiple tasks purely in parallel or simultaneously. That means we don’t purely multi-task, but switch between tasks and execute them one at a time, but by spending very small timeframes on each task.

A good example from the history is a story about Julius Caesar capabilities in that area. Plutarch writes, “Caesar disciplined himself so far as to be able to dictate letters from on horseback, and to give directions to two w…
