Investing in unknown stocks could yield higher returns
By betting on stocks that lack media coverage, investors may be doing themselves a favour, according to a new research paper co-authored by INSEAD Assistant Finance Professor Lily Hua Fang and Associate Professor of Finance Joel Peress.
Playing China’s internet market
Bring up a social networking service with 500 million members and you’d likely think of the massively popular Facebook.

There’s more. One click can take you to QQ, an instant messaging (IM) service, or to QQ Games, an online gaming portal, or to

The Worm Factory 360 is a home composting solution for your kitchen and household waste. Although this video was obviously made to promote the purchase of the Worm Factory 360, it does a very nice job of describing the basic process of how composting works. The video could also be used as inspiration to brainstorm and design new models for a successful compost bin. Run time 03:05.
The Introductory Economics course is a collection of online experiments and related on-line workbooks which can be used by individual learners or to supplement an instructor lead course. In each experiment a student is an active participant attempting to make deals with other traders in a market. After each experiment, the data the students generated is stored and the student will use this data to complete an online workbook. The workbook guides the student through the analysis and much of the e
The National Science Foundation-funded Center for Innovative Learning Technologies (CILT) is designed to be a national resource for stimulating research and development of technology- enabled solutions to critical problems in K-14 science, math, engineering and technology learning. The Center, launched at the end $1997, is organized around four themes identg5ed as areas where research is likely to result in major gains in teaching and learning, and sponsors research across disciplines and instit
In Part II, we will lay out a plan for an educational Web server that goes beyond what is currently available, providing a truly vital and useful resource for classroom learning. Finally, we will describe current plans for the CoVis Geosciences Web Server, an educational Web resource designed according to the plans outlined in this article.,web document
This paper reports findings from the Economic and Social Research Council-funded InterActive Education Project, in which teachers, researchers and teacher educators have worked together to develop, perform, and evaluate secondary school science department-based ‘Subject Design Initiatives’. Drawing on notions from sociocultural theory, we have focused on ‘cultural tools’ as material and symbolic mediators of learning. In the Subject Design Initiatives teachers are seen as central to lear
Government funding of educational research has reached a critical stage. The view of those close to the purse strings seems to be that educational research has become increasingly irrelevant to policy development. Consequently, in a political climate of best value for money, the allocation of funding for research now tends to be accompanied by criteria which require, for example, engagement with users, measured impact and knowledge transformation. The extensive Teaching and Learning Research Pro

The Early Years Transitions and Special Educational Needs (EYTSEN) project builds on the work of the Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) project, a major longitudinal study of a national sample of young children's progress and development through pre-school and into primary school until the end of Key Stage 1 (age 3+ to 7 years). Both the EPPE and EYTSEN research studies are funded by the Department of Education and Skills (DfES). The EYTSEN study explores evidence of possible sp
"The triumph was another team victory for the Plainsmen as they chalked up their fourth win in a row. Hoppy Middleton, with three first half touchdowns, lead the Auburn Tigers to a smashing 27 to 6 decision over Clemson before a Homecoming crowd of 24,000. Although the game was marred by a constant flow of penalties, the Plainsmen left no doubt of their superiority in the minds of Coach Frank Howard's elevens. The Auburn forward wall deserved much credit for the decisiveness of the victory. They
Objectives. We assessed whether population rates of mammography screening, and their changes over time, were associated with improvements in breast cancer stage at diagnosis and whether the strength of this association varied by race/ethnicity. Methods. We analyzed state cancer registry data linked to socioeconomic characteristics of patients’ areas of residence for 1990–1998 time trends in the likelihood of early stage diagnosis. We appended each cancer registry record with matching subgro
Students develop their estimation skills while evaluating their television-watching habits and draw conclusions about the influence of television in their lives.
