FastCompany’s predictions for the news stories of 2016

It’s that time of year when we look back in review and ahead in anticipation. At TomorrowToday, we don’t often indulge in the headline grabbing short-term predictions so popular in the media as one year changes over to the next, but this list from Fast Company caught my eye. I think I agree with most of it (although it’s very US focused). Read the full story here – it’s worth the read.

The Issues That Will Shape the World in 2016, by Fast Company magazine

PS, if you want to look back at 2015, I believe it will be listed as one of the greatest twelve month periods in science history. Check out this video, and then get lost in this YouTube search.
