Coercive Reconciliation: Stabilise, Normalise, Exit Aboriginal Australia
On 21 June 2007 Prime Minister John Howard and Minister for Indigenous Affairs Mal Brough declared a ‘national emergency’ in relation to child sexual abuse in the Northern Territory. In an unprecedented set of actions, the Commonwealth has taken direct control of communities, overriding the authority of both the NT Government and local community organisations in the name of creating safe and healthy environments for children. In this public lecture, Dr Hinkson, Professor Behrendt, Ms

He has published 15 books of poetry and now shares his creative wisdom in this thoughtful exploratio
Don’t Mention It: How ‘Undiscussables’ Can Undermine an Organization
Recent high-profile scandals at Penn State, MF Global Holdings, Olympus and elsewhere raise questions about why organizations often fail to address significant internal problems that at best impede performance, and at worst could have devastating effects. In hindsight, especially to observers, it is clear what should have been done. But for employees, exposing such problems is more complicated than telling right from wrong, say experts at Wharton and elsewhere.Author(s):
Officers value preparation Penn State training offers
Do you know someone who always has your back -- someone you can rely on to show you the ropes? For many county sheriff departments across the state, Penn State takes on that role. Scott Henry, a deputy in the Berks County Sheriff's Department, points out how Penn State's Deputy Sheriff Academy, the only program of its kind in Pennsylvania, teaches deputies effective ways to protect the public.

Mixing Domains: Architecture plus Software Engineering
Software engineering is a multidisciplinary area of knowledge combining competence in computation with at least one other area of expertise, typically in the domain of the applications being created. A course offering for students of engineering, architecture and software engineering at Carnegie Mellon illustrates the challenges and opportunities of cross-domain instruction. These include ontology, problem taxonomies, and instruction strategies.

Exploring Complex Forms in Nature Through Mathematical Modeling: a Case on Turritella Terebra
Changing paradigm of nature-architecture relationship has being directly affected from developing science and technologies as well as from the impact of biomimetic inventions in various man made designs. Our perception of forms and structures are also shifting through use of computational techniques. From this aspect, mathematical models can be considered as the first step to analyze the complex forms and structures in nature. In this paper it is aimed to initiate a platform in architecture whic

Colleagues from both academia and business were present on 27 January 2011 for Lawrence Bailey's guest lecture on Market Segmentation, Qualitative Research and Conversations Across the Garden Wall. The garden wall of the lecture's title was Lawrence's metaphor for the potential divide between the two sectors. The lecture reflected Lawrence's career-long wish to get qualitative researchers in the commercial world to talk to their counterparts in the academic world, and vice versa. He discusse

This course is designed for students particularly concerned with the practical problems of operating in large formal organizations, either from an operational or a research perspective. It will focus, as the title suggests, upon different forms of economic organizations and institutions in advanced and developing industrial societies and the theories (and theoretical perspectives) which might help us to understand them.
The virtual design studio (VDS) points to a new way of practicing and teaching architectural design. As a new phenomenon, little research has been done to evaluate design collaboration and multimedia usage in a distributed workplace like the virtual design studio. Our research provides empirical data on how students actually use multiple media during architectural collaborative design.
Thousands of Bahraini's demonstrated outside the Saudi embassy after Saudi troops rolled into the country
Speaker(s): Daniel Finkelstein | To mark the completion of the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre, the first brand new building on campus for more than 40 years, the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the LSE Students’ Union have organised a series of ‘in conversation’ events with some of the School's distinguished alumni. These events will take place in the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre and will be open to LSE students, alumni and staff. This event will see Daniel Finkels
Clap your hands and sing along to this fresh take on a traditional singalong. The multicultural version of this early learner encourages action and imagination. The song ends with saying hello in many different languages. Words appear on the screen and each word is highlighted as it is sung. Young students will enjoy the colorful illustrations and repetition. (2:57)
