Entrepreneur Elon Musk: Why It's Important to Pinch Pennies on the Road to Riches
Superpreneur seems like a better label for Elon Musk. At 38, he has already been a co-founder of PayPal, which sold for $1.5 billion, and SpaceX, which aims to commercialize the launching of payloads into orbit. He is also an initial investor in electric-car pioneer Tesla Motors and solar energy company SolarCity, which sells and services solar energy equipment. In the second half of a two-part interview, arranged by Wharton Entrepreneurial Programs, he tells Knowledge@Wharton the story of his e

Eastman Jazz: Two Ways to the Same Stage
Each spring, two of the big bands at Eastman, the Eastman Jazz Ensemble and the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble, put together a split concert that they perform in Kilbourn Hall. While the two bands have a similar makeup in terms of the size of the group and the instruments, they each take a very different approach to the music that they will play on the very same stage. While the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble is known for playing newer music, the approach of ensemble director Dave Rivello is a rather tra

Theatrical production in the Wash, Pomona College
Student actors perform on a makeshift stage with a white canopy in Blanchard Park on Wash Day, 1901. A tent set off to one side likely serves as a dressing room. A small removable placard next to the tent indicates a scene location. On the left side of the stage, a group of actors in dark robes and hats are gathered around a man in tights seated on a dais. In the center, a woman dressed all in white holds a basket. Behind her, a group of similarly attired actors are seated on the ground.
Theory-based support for mobile language learning: noticing and recording
This paper considers the issue of 'noticing' in second language acquisition, and argues for the potential of handheld devices to: (i) support language learners in noticing and recording noticed features 'on the spot', to help them develop their second language system; (ii) help language teachers better understand the specific difficulties of individuals or those from a particular language background; and (iii) facilitate data collection by applied linguistics researchers, which can be fed back i

Research on early brain development and early childhood demonstrates that the experiences children have and the attachments they form early in life have a long-lasting impact on their later development and learning. The link between high quality early childhood experiences and positive child outcomes is well documented. Quality child care is comprised of the combination of classroom environment and caregiver interaction. While there are measurement tools that adequately assess the environment of

In the predominately white Southern university where I teach, African American students make up 26% of the incoming freshman population, reflecting the racial demographics of the state. Although the visible majority, white students benefit from racial privilege that seems invisible, at least to them. I am i
