Oct. 9 - Euro zone politicians need to face up to the bloc's crisis and fix it says Alastair Campbell, communications director to former UK prime minister Tony Blair.
Commonsense Reasoning, as a field of Artificial Intelligence, aims to provide solutions for the simulation of forms of reasoning that people naturally do in order to solve problems in real world scenarios, which typically have been difficult to tackle with techniques based on traditional mathematical approaches. In particular, in this field there have been proposed forms of knowledge representation and inference mechanisms in order to simulate, among others, default reasoning, spatial reasoning,
On the Foundations of Quantitative Information Flow
To achieve food security in a changing climate, the global community must operate within three limits: the quantity of food that can be produced under a given climate; the quantity needed by a growing and changing population; and the effect of food production on the climate. At present the planet operates outside that safe space, as witnessed by the enormous number of people who are undernourished. If current trends in population growth, diets, crop yields and climate change continue, the world
The scenario sounds like a low-budget movie from the 1970s: Humongous snakes are on the loose, eating everything in sight. But this is real -- a problem that Auburn University and its canines are helping to combat. Auburn researchers used detection dogs in the Everglades National Park to find Burmese pythons during a recent study on ways to manage and eradicate these nonnative, invasive snakes, which are eating native wildlife, mostly mammals and birds. http://ocm.auburn.edu/featured_story/pyt
This is the trailer for the book Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. "August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?" (01:33)

This is an intermediate workshop designed for students who have a basic understanding of the principles of theatrical design and who want a more intensive study of costume design and the psychology of clothing. Students develop designs that emerge through a process of character analysis, based on the script and directorial concept. Period research, design, and rendering skills are fostered through practical exercises. Instruction in basic costume construction, including drafting and draping, pro
After the Qing dynasty was overthrown in 1912, the country was faced with finding new leadership. Finally, on October 1st, 1949 – after years of fighting – Mao Zedong declared the People’s Republic of China. His communist regime sought to stamp out traditions and cultural symbols of the times that came before, and most importantly wanted to unite the country under a communism. Successes and failures followed, but ultimately China became the world’s fastest-growing economy
In this weekâs episode, EOL fellow Rosario CastaĂąeda takes us to the back rooms of Harvardâs Museum of Comparative Zoology, searching through dozens of jars of pickled anole lizards to see the traces of evolution in action. These faded specimens donât much resemble these vivid animals in life, as they skitter along branches and tree trunks in their native tropics. But to the trained eye, they're revealing secrets. Ari Daniel Shapiro reports.
This video (15:17) gives several conjugations of the word: comprendre (to understand). After the native speaker says each phrase one time, he says "Repetez", allowing the viewer to repeat the phrase. Good for beginning French language-learners or for review.
