How to Avoid Financial Crises in the Future
Lots of people did many stupid things for us to get into the current financial mess. Now, the government is stepping up efforts to impose stricter financial regulations to ensure that such things do not happen in future. Will more regulation work? If history is any guide, the answer is no. Over the last 100 years, we've had a financial crisis every 15-20 years. Every time one took place, the government would step in and impose more regulation - only for another crisis to occur 15-20 years later.
6.011 Introduction to Communication, Control, and Signal Processing (MIT)
This course examines signals, systems and inference as unifying themes in communication, control and signal processing. Topics include input-output and state-space models of linear systems driven by deterministic and random signals; time- and transform-domain representations in discrete and continuous time; group delay; state feedback and observers; probabilistic models; stochastic processes, correlation functions, power spectra, spectral factorization; least-mean square error estimation; Wiener

The Impact of Three Cognitive Functions on Digital Media Aided Architectural Ideation: A Proposed In
From a cognitivist perspective the architectural design seen as an iterative process of search for an ?acceptable? solution from initial design assumptions (Simon 1974) requires representation. These representation which may be internal (mental/cognitive activities) and external (sketches 3D models) are essential to any creative act and in all phases of the design process since they constitute a projection of the architect?s thought and know-how.
Communication in the Implementation of a Metacognitive Strategy for Learning to Design
This paper describes an instructional communication strategy that makes use of time-based media techniques (story boarding and animation) in order to empower design studios with means to promote their students? awareness on the acquisition of metacognitive knowledge and skills. This paper highlights the importance of including the communication of the design processes in the evaluation of learning outcomes. Moreover, the paper proposes that the students should be made constantly aware of their d
Applying object-oriented analysis to the integration of design and construction
This paper implements an Object Oriented Analysis technique to model information related to design and construction. In a previous study, an approach to integrate design and construction processes based upon information analysis and modelling has been proposed. By breaking down the project's vast information into groups of related information, construction related problems have been identified and then traced back too their relevant design processes. This paper models this process using a relati

A Tale of Two Colonies At Thanksgiving, Americans recall their blessings around bountiful meals, with imagery going back to the Pilgrims, especially Plymouth Colony's 1623 Thanksgiving. But little attention is paid to what allows that bounty to be created — capitalism — though Jamestown and Plymouth both illustrate that lesson. Reflections restricted to our current bounty

What's the cause of psychological distress in people with cancer? Emily Banks
Professor Emily Banks gives this lecture 'Is psychological distress in people living with cancer related to the diagnosis, treatment or their level of disability?' at The Australian National University on 18 November 2010. It is widely accepted that people living with a diagnosis of cancer experience higher levels of psychological distress than the general population. However, cancer is a heterogeneous condition and recent evidence suggests that, although high levels of psychological distress a
