Effective states and the media: A research dialogue across disciplines
IDS Event 16 January 2009
James Deane and Gerry Power from the BBC World Service Trust offered a practitioner organisation perspective of media and governance research by describing their perceptions of the research gaps in terms of what they knew a good deal about, what they know quite a bit about and what they know little about. They went on to explain the factors for their ignorance which includes
Police Intern Program Readies Future Officers For Careers
PULLMAN, Wash.-- Students at Washington State University interested in a career in law enforcement have a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience. The WSU Police Intern program allows students to learn the ins

11.948 Power of Place: Media Technology, Youth, and City Design and Development (MIT)
This workshop provides an introduction to urban environmental design and explores the potential of information technology and the Internet to transform public education, city design, and community development in inner-city neighborhoods. Integration of comprehensive ("top-down") and grassroots ("bottom-up") approaches to design and planning is a major theme.
Students will work in a real neighborhood with real people on a real project, putting theory into practice and reflecting on insights gain
Because our power grid can power the future
University of Minnesota researchers are trying to make more energy with less impact on the environment and on our infrastructure. Professor Massoud Amin is a smart grid expert and believes there is a more intelligent way to deliver electricity. If we could power the United States with a smart grid, it would not only save money, it would also boost energy security.
Kling on Knowledge, Power, and Unchecked and Unbalanced
Arnold Kling of EconLog and author of Unchecked and Unbalanced, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the book and the relationship between knowledge and power. In a modern economy, specialization has increased and knowledge is increasingly dispersed. But political power has become more concentrated and fails to exploit the potential for decentralization. Kling discusses these trends and the potential for decentralization of power under different policies.
Enter the world of PowerUp, a free, online, multiplayer game that allows students to experience the excitement and the diversity of modern engineering! Playing the game, students work together in teams to investigate the rich, 3D game environment and learn about the environmental disasters that threaten the game world and its inhabitants. Teacher's guide and lesson plans included.

The New Machiavelli: How to Wield Power in the Modern World
Jonathan Powell, Tony Blair's chief of staff from 1994 to 2007, talks about his new book The New Machiavelli: How to Wield Power in the Modern World. Taking the lessons Machiavelli derived from his experience as an official in fifteenth-century Florence, Powell shows how these lessons can still apply today. Illustrating each of Machiavelli's maxims with a description of events that occurred during Tony Blair's time as Prime Minister, The New Machiavelli is designed to be The Prince for modern ti
Aris Candris: Role of Nuclear Power in an Energy-Constrained World
Carnegie Mellon University's top-ranked College of Engineering launched a new Leadership Speaker Series Oct. 11 by hosting Westinghouse Electric Company CEO Aris Candris (CIT'74, '79), who discussed the role of nuclear power in today's energy-constrained world.
Candris also talked about the factors that are causing the growing need for energy and a comparison of yesterday's and today's nuclear industry. He was joined in the discussion by a panel of Carnegie Mellon energy experts, moderated by
Power Shift: West to East
The world is tilting away from the West to the East, from the United States to China, from the Transatlantic to the Pacific. Or is it? LSE experts with very different answers to these questions will battle it out in an open forum. Professor Michael Cox is Co- Director of LSE IDEAS and Professor of International Relations at LSE. Professor Westad is a professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and an expert on Chinese international affairs.
