The Subprime Drama Continues, but for How Long?
Almost every day, a new twist seems to appear in the subprime crisis drama. This week, the investment arm of the government of Abu Dhabi announced an infusion of US7.5 billion to acquire a 4.9 percent stake in Citigroup, which has been slammed by enormous losses in the credit market. The announcement came on the heels of a report from Bank of America that the subprime mess is about to get messier as interest rates "reset" -- or rise -- on more than US360 billion worth of adjustable rate subprime

New Approaches to New Markets: How C.K. Prahalad's Bottom of the Pyramid Strategies Are Paying Off
Five years ago, C.K. Prahalad published a book titled, The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid, in which he argues that multinational companies not only can make money selling to the world's poorest, but also that undertaking such efforts is necessary as a way to close the growing gap between rich and poor countries. Key to his argument for targeting the world's poorest is the sheer size of that market -- an estimated four billion people. How has Prahalad's book -- a revised, fifth-anniversary

Laptop classrooms as ‚catalysts of change’? A review of international research on the effects of l
Considering the dynamics of laptop implementation activities in secondary education in German-speaking countries, the lack of broadly-based research activities on the effects and critical success factors of laptop classrooms is remarkable. Particularly since the broad variety of studies that have been conducted in English-speaking nations for more than 20 years has not yet found general recognition. Therefore it is the objective of this paper to give a well-founded review of international resear

Determining the Sources of Delay in a Distributed Learning Environment
In the context of LeGE-WG we expect to see the Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA) being used as a guiding framework for the future deployment of Distributed Learning Environment (DLEs). OGSA is totally service-oriented and it has been known for sometime that Quality of Service (QoS) is key to the success of DLEs. Delay in particular, as experienced by the end user, is one of the key QoS parameters for a DLE. This paper describes techniques for identifying sources of such delay, and a model f

Auburn vs. Clemson (1954)
"The triumph was another team victory for the Plainsmen as they chalked up their fourth win in a row. Hoppy Middleton, with three first half touchdowns, lead the Auburn Tigers to a smashing 27 to 6 decision over Clemson before a Homecoming crowd of 24,000. Although the game was marred by a constant flow of penalties, the Plainsmen left no doubt of their superiority in the minds of Coach Frank Howard's elevens. The Auburn forward wall deserved much credit for the decisiveness of the victory. They

With 114 seconds of fuel left, astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin overrode the computers and manually landed the Eagle.
