15.431 Entrepreneurial Finance (MIT)
This class examines the elements of entrepreneurial finance, focusing on technology-based start-up ventures, and the early stages of company development. It addresses key questions which challenge all entrepreneurs: how much money can and should be raised; when should it be raised and from whom; what is a reasonable valuation of the company; and how funding should be structured. The subject aims to prepare students for these decisions, both as entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
21W.785 Communicating in Cyberspace (MIT)
This class covers the analysis, design, implementation and testing of various forms of digital communication based on group collaboration. Students are encouraged to think about the Web and other new digital interactive media not just in terms of technology but also broader issues such as language (verbal and visual), design, information architecture, communication and community. Students work in small groups on a semester-long project of their choice.
Slavery and the American Revolution - Part 4
Video that uses Alfred and Ruth Blumrosen's Slave Nation: How Slavery United the Colonies & Sparked the American Revolution. The video covers Lord Mansfield's decision that released James Somerset from slavery in England and its repercussions in British Colonial America as the "13 original" colonies headed down a path toward revolution and independence. (Teacher-made video)
Cu 70, Zn 30 (wt%), slow cooling - annealing twins
This sample was cooled slowly and contains equiaxed α grains that form in order to minimise their surface energy. Within these grains there is evidence of twinning. Annealing twins have formed during recrystallisation.
Incommensurately modulated perovskite based oxide
The micrograph shows incommensurately modulated perovskite based oxide - Nd4SrTi5O17, viewed along the  direction.
STAR methodology-based learning about construction accidents and their prevention
This paper presents the results of a feasibility study concerning the application of STAR-methodology-basedmachine learning to construction accidents and their prevention. A ten-stage knowledge acquisition process is presented and its individual stages described. Knowledge about construction accidents was acquired using a collection of 225 examples, based on actual accidents records. Inductive learning with a system based on the STAR-methodology was employed. This system was used in both the gen
Rochester Youth Year Fellows reflect on their year of service
An AmeriCorps* VISTA program housed in the Rochester Center for Community Leadership, the Rochester Youth Year fellowship places talented, recent graduates of Rochester-area colleges (including the University of Rochester) in youth-based community organizations for one year in order to create or expand initiatives that address the various challenges facing youth and families in Rochester.
Dell’s Diversification Strategy: ‘A Day Late and a Dollar Short?’
It has been a battle of the balance sheets as rivals Dell and Hewlett-Packard continue to wrangle over who will win the right to acquire 3PAR, a little known data storage company. While the 3PAR bidding war, which HP is expected to win, is part of Dell's ongoing ambition to get a bigger foothold in high-margin enterprise technology services, the $53 billion company has also been chasing consumers with lackluster products. As one expert asks: "Dell sees the need for diversification, but does it s
Qualitative contribution of a vr-system to architectural design: Why we failed?
The paper exposes the development of a Virtual-Reality system for modeling timber structures, and evaluations with students about its contribution to the architectural project.
Quantitative models for early prediction of software development success: a practitioner’s perspec
This study investigated some of the early non-technical components of the software development process from the perspective of project success. The causal relationships among these components, as well as their relationship to software practitionersâ overall perception of project success, were depicted through a Bayesian Belief Network. Components related to sponsor/management, customer/users and requirements management. Data was gathered through a survey of practitioners. This research is imp
Ni-Superalloy, as-extruded microstructure
Micrograph shows a fully recrystallized microstructure containing many equiaxed grains and γ' precipitates. In addition to this there are also several carbides and borides (seen as white). There is evidence of misorientation between adjacent grains, demonstrated by the large degree of contrast. View schematic diagram of γ' microstructure
Experimentation is the fourth step of the scientific method. Science experiments are necessary to test hypotheses and to form accurate conclusions based on real world results. All branches of science conduct experiments. The video is in lecture format with an instructor in front of a dry erase board. Run time 05:20.
HST.720 Physiology of the Ear (MIT)
Topics for this course are based primarily on reading and discussions of original research literature that cover the analysis as well as the underlying physical and physiological mechanisms of acoustic signals in the auditory periphery. Topics include the acoustics, mechanics, and hydrodynamics of sound transmission; the biophysical basis for cochlear amplification; the physiology of hair-cell transduction and synaptic transmission; efferent feedback control; the analysis and coding of simple an
The week ahead
June 17 - The focus next week will be on the FOMC meeting and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's statement, just as QE2 is supposed to wind down.
UCL's new campus in Qatar
Professor Michael Worton: Vice-Provost (Academic and International) announces UCL's plans to open a new campus in Qatar. UCL's programme there will consist of archaeology, cultural heritage and museum studies. The campus will be based within Education City, alongside a handful of other world-class university satellite campuses, and run in partnership with the Qatar Foundation and the Qatar Museums Authority. http://www.ucl.ac.uk/vice-provost/worton/ http://www.qf.org.qa/ http://www.qma.com.qa/e
