Where Grameen Bank meets e-Bay in an African marketplace (and everyone wins)
While share prices have been falling and banks have been offering measly interest rates, MYC4 investors have been earning an average gross interest rate of 12.9 per cent a year from investments made from the comfort of their home. Too good to be true? According to Mads Kjaer, CEO of the online marketplace MYC4, “investors set the interest rate themselves and bid for it, and many hard-core investors realise even much higher yields.”
Avian Phylogenomics Consortium report details origins of bird species
By: nsf In a landmark study that researched the origins of bird species, evolutionary biologists have made discoveries about the age of birds, and the genomic relationships among modern birds. The genomes of modern birds tell a story: today's winged rulers of the skies emerged and evolved after the mass extinction that wiped out dinosaurs and almost everything else 66 million years ago. That story is now coming to light, thanks to an international collaboration that has been underway for four ye
The Battle of Russia Pt. 9 of 9
The Battle of Russia from the War Classics Collection. "Here we discover Russia's valiant resistance to invasion throughout its history and how that strength of character was key to their determination to prevail against the seemingly unstoppable forces of Nazi Germany in the bloodiest battles of World War II. The film is a wonderful compilation of authentic newsreel footage from both the US Signal Corps and various Soviet resources."
1.2 MOS structures Carefully designed metal–oxide–semiconductor (MOS) structures are a common building block in digital electronics, primarily intended to form part of a transistor-based switch. However, throughout the active regions of a microelectronic chip there will be secondary MOS structures that arise because metal tracks are insulated from the semiconductor substrate by a layer of oxide; equally careful design is necessary to ensure that these do not form part of a switch. The acronym is a mixture o

WebEx's Diane Davidson: 'We Defined a Community Ecosystem'
When Google bought YouTube recently for $1.65 billion, the world of business sat up to take serious notice of social networks. Today, many companies are looking into how they can tap into -- or develop -- communities as a way to make better decisions and increase profits. Jon Spector, a former Wharton vice dean and now CEO of the Conference Board, spoke with participants at the Community 2.0 conference in Las Vegas earlier this year to explore how companies are trying to harness communities to r
Looking for a Company to Run? Search Funds Could Be the Answer
For those entrepreneurs who want to run a company but prefer to skip the start-up stage, search funds offer a possible alternative. A specialized form of private equity first launched in the mid-1980s, search funds are becoming increasingly popular -- and their supporters claim they can offer investors attractive returns and business owners a compelling exit strategy. What does this trend in private equity mean for investors, and for small businesses that might be acquisition targets for these f

Un modèle d’élève par l’analyse statistique implicative. Prise en compte du contexte algébri
Le modèle d’élève que nous construisons cherche à donner une représentation fine des compétences cognitives des élèves dans le domaine de l’algèbre. Il se fonde sur les micro-actions enregistrées dans le micromonde Aplusix. Ces actions étant de niveau très fin, nous devons reconstruire les connaissances à un niveau plus abstrait : non pas une action isolée mais un ensemble d’actions « similaires » apparaissant dans un même contexte. Nous utilisons pour cela l’analyse sta
