One day he may be negotiating with the president of a corporation, and the next he is sitting on a dirt floor talking with villagers about the importance of saving tigers.He spoke with Knowledge@
27 Sep 2010: Energy Market Consequences of an Emerging U.S. Carbon Management Policy
Emerging energy and climate policies in the United States are accelerating the pace of technological changes and prompting calls for alternative energy and stricter energy efficiency measures. These trends raise questions about the future demand for fossil fuels, such that some energy-producing nations are reluctant to invest heavily in the expansion of production capacity. The abundance of shale gas resources in North America could allow the United States to utilize more gas in its energy mix a
13 Oct 2010: Civic Scientist Lecture - Robert F. Curl Jr., Ph.D., and Sir Harry W. Kroto, Ph.D
The Civic Scientist lectures are a series of talks by leading scientists from around the country who have influenced public policy. The series seeks to expose scientists and future scientists to the notion that their roles extend beyond the laboratory. It also gives the Houston community an opportunity to hear leading scientists discuss their fields and careers, with the goal of promoting science and technology as a public priority worthy of federal, state and local funding.

Planning, Policy and Design 132: Sustainability II
The purpose of this course is to investigate the challenges of implementing sustainability in a variety of contexts from the perspectives of climate change, energy use, natural resource use, and ecosystems/land use. While we are doing this through lectures and discussions, students will be carrying out individual and team research projects that involve applying the logic of sustainable design. This year’s theme for the research projects is “climate sensitive sustainable design.”

Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 3. Inventing Notations
We learn how to foster and appreciate students notations for their richness and creativity. We also look at some of the possibilities that early work in creating notation systems might open up for students as they move on toward algebra.,15 min. Pizzas in the Classroom In Englewood, New Jersey, Blanche Young, who attended the summer workshop, tries out one of the problems with her fourth-grade students. Later, she meets with Arthur Powell to discuss the lesson. 5 min. New Brunswick, New Jersey

Working with dilemmas
Dilemmas are part of the fabric of organisational and individual life; these are often presented as the choice between two (or more) equally compelling propositions. In this study unit you will focus on how to address dilemmas effectively. In particular, you will explore the extent to which dilemmas are or should be treated as choices between two extremes, and how the response to and resolution of dilemmas can move beyond binary choices to the reconciliation of opposites.
