Book Launch: The Politics of Business in the Middle East After the Arab Spring [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Steffen Hertog, Professor Giacomo Luciani, Dr Marc Valeri, Dr Khalid AlMezaini | Although most Arab countries remain authoritarian, many have undergone a restructuring of state-society relations. Lower and middle class interest groups have lost ground, while big business has benefited in terms of its integration into policy-making and the opening-up of economic sectors that used to be state-dominated. Arab businesses have also started taking on aspects of public service provision
Finance ministries and development
Dr Philipp Krause gives this public talk titled 'Finance ministries and development'. This video was recorded at the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy on 11 February 2014. What makes a finance ministry capable at doing its job? Is it a strong legal mandate to run public finances as it sees fit?

Los misterios de la Luna (The History Channel) - parte 2 de 3
Durante miles de años, la humanidad ha encontrado consuelo con su presencia. Ha sido un faro para los viajeros nocturnos, un reloj para los agricultores y una guía para los marineros en el mar. Para algunas culturas, ha sido incluso un dios. Es el único cuerpo cósmico que ha sido visitado por seres humanos. A distancia, la luminosidad de la Luna nos ha fascinado desde el principio de los tiempos. Además, un examen más cercano a este faro en la oscuridad

Sonnet 57 Being your slave, what should I do... by William Shakespeare (poetry reading)
If we take what he says at face value, then Will (note the pun, he was very fond of puns) tells his mistress that he is enslaved by his love for her, so when she goes out and leaves him alone for hours on end, he is willing to wait, devotedly and sadly, for her return without ever questioning or even thinking about what she has been doing. There are such relationships: some men go even further and encourage their wives to be unfaithful. It reminds me a French movie I saw a long time ago.

The final of eight sessions in the Economics 101 series, this lecture may be the most concise overview of the core ideas of the Austrian School of Economics. [1:00:11]
One of the key aims of ALPS is to improve the assessment of competence in practice across 16 professions, increasing the confidence of new graduates and their employers. The CIPA tool has been developed to establish measures of new graduate confidence in their ability across a number of areas of professional competence. Initially it is being piloted as a self-rating tool with new graduates with the intention of extending its use by employers of new graduates. The tool offers a way of establishin
Phase 1 of the Lincoln Campus Center concourse renovation at UMass Amherst will start soon, bringing new light and appeal to the ground-floor facility. The $1 million project, set for completion this fall, will be followed by phase 2, a $10 million transformation of the concourse's retail and dining space. The full renovation will be done by summer 2014 to coincide with opening of the adjacent, $85 million New Academic Classroom Building.
Muhammad Yunus explains how any person or any business, large or small, can make a change in the world during his visit to Elon University on April 3, 2012 for A Convocation for Honors.
The XIA Alpha Particle Counter sounds like it belongs in a science fiction movie. In reality it's housed in a clean room operated by SMU's Department of Physics, where SMU physicist Jodi Cooley and her students rely on it as part of their search for dark matter. Cooley is a member of the global scientific consortium called SuperCryogenic Dark Matter Search (SuperCDMS). SuperCDMS is searching for elusive dark matter — the "glue" that represents 90 percent of the matter in our universe but whic
