In many ways, this includes several questions such as: Why did these works achieve the fame and influence they achieved? How do they present what it means to be a human being? How do they describe the role of a member of a family, community, tradition, social class, gender? How do they distinguish between proper and improper behavior? How do they characterize the members

THE ACCELERATING EVOLUTION OF CAPITALISM | Chris Meyer
Like every species, capitalists and their environment—the economy--co-evolve. A century ago, as the business sector began to deploy industrial technology, the economic system developed new features like limited liability corporations, labor unions, anti-trust laws, consumer attitudes, cost accounting systems, and mass market values.

Create a Staging .NET Backend for Testing and Developing Azure Mobile Services | Windows Store Devel

Debugging on your Live Service is bad!  For instance if you are breaking in the debugger while one of your users is trying to get data, that call will likely timeout.  Also it is difficult to isolate an issue if multiple unplanned requests are coming into your service.  If you have some things you need to test or debug with your .NET backend, you can easily publish your .NET Backend code to a 'Staging' service to do your debugging.
