M As: Not necessarily the best way to grow your company
There are several good ways to grow a company, but only about a third of firms actively use all the methods available to them, and this narrow focus widens the corporate gap between success and failure significantly.
That’s according to a 10-year global study of 162 telecom companies conducted by Laurence Capron, INSEAD strategy professor, and Will Mitchell, a professor at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

Internet Scout Project
The Water Environment Federation offers hands-on activities in pdf format covering a wide range of the important water-related environmental topics. Educators can find materials for students from kindergarten through high school dealing with the characteristics of floodplains and wetlands, water cycles, pollution, and so much more. Each activity clearly lays out a plan for the teachers including advanced preparation, background materials, a list of terms, the actual procedure, and a follow-up. T
Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer uses a series of probes to build upon Emily's idea that wind and rain can break down rock to find her idea of where the broken down pieces of rock go. The segment shows that the interviewer has identified that Emily has some correct ideas about the role of water and wind but struggles with where the material and what size, gets deposited.
Diagnostic et aide dans un environnement d'apprentissage ouvert : Un exemple en chimie, SCHNAPS
Cet article présente la conception et la réalisation d'un environnement ouvert pour l'apprentissage de la résolution de problèmes en chimie. Trois questions principales y sont étudiées : les outils mis à la disposition de l'élève, l'analyse de son activité et les aides que le système est en mesure de lui apporter. La conception de ces trois composantes de l'environnement s'appuie sur des analyses préalables des difficultés rencontrées, des formes de résolution des élèves et des
Understanding learning cultures in community based further education: working together towards enhan
Our project – Understanding and Enhancing Learning Cultures in Community-Based Further Education – aims to achieve an enhancement of the student experience in community based further education (FE) through a deeper shared understanding of learning cultures in this setting. This paper provides an outline of the project, an update on progress so far, and reports on our approach to the analysis of the data and initial outcomes of the first phase of fieldwork. Running through all of these elem
Metamorphosis — Stories of Change
The goal of this activity is for students to learn how to tell a story in order to make a complex topic (such as global warming or ozone holes) easier for a reader to grasp. Students realize that the narrative impulse underlies even scientific and technical writing and gain a better understanding of the role of myth as a “science” of imagination that helps us to gain insight into human motivation.
Students learn how a bill becomes law in the U.S. Congress and research legislation related to global warming.
Students will learn the difference between global, prevailing and local winds. In this activity, students will make a wind vane out of paper, a straw and a soda bottle and use it to measure wind direction over time. Finally, they will analyze their data to draw conclusions about the prevailing winds in their area.
Dripping Wet or Dry as a Bone?
Students use a sponge and water model to explore the concept of relative humidity and create a percent scale.
Rose Bowl : can a football team score 11 points in a game?
This activity uses the history of the Rose Bowl football tournament to examine numerical combinations. It asks the student how many different ways a football team can end a game with 11 points, something that has never happened in Rose Bowl history. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, also considers possible numerical combinations for playing darts and introduces the concept of a perfect number. It suggests that students mak
Putt-putt golf : can you make a hole-in-one?
This activity opens with an animation of a miniature golf course that shows how a player would make a hole-in-one by bouncing the golf ball off the wall of the course. Given that the angle of incidence will be equal to the angle of reflection, students are challenged to determine the point along the wall where the ball should be aimed. This activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains how the method of reflecting is used by astr
Superspace: One Thousand and One Lessons in Supersymmetry
We introduce superfields in chapter 2 for the simpler world of three spacetime dimensions, where superfields are very similar to ordinary fields. We skip the discussion of nonsuperspace topics (background fields, gravity, etc.) which are covered in following chapters, and concentrate on a pedagogical treatment of superspace. We return to four dimensions in chapter 3, where we describe how supersymmetry is represented on superfields, and discuss all general properties of free superfields (and the

The Meaning of Translational Research and Why It Matters
Translational research means different things to different people, but it seems important to almost everyone. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has made translational research a priority, forming centers of translational research at its institutes and launching the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program in 2006. With 24 CTSA-funded academic centers already established, other universities are transforming themselves to compete for upcoming CTSA grants. By 2012, the NIH expe
