The Cockroach Beatbox
By dissecting a cockroach ... yes, live on stage ... TED Fellow and
neuroscientist Greg Gage shows how brains receive and deliver electric impulses -- and how legs can respond. (Launching a series on Awesome Nature) "The Cockroach Beatbox" was animated by the TED-Ed Animation Team (Jeremiah Dickey, Biljana Labovic, Celeste Lai, Kari Mulholland and Franz Palomares). (06:15)
Africa: The next frontier for investors?
Africa’s murky image deters some investors, but those already there say the prospects are bright and there is money to be made.
Are you creating value for your firm?
It’s a tough world out there and only firms that succeed in creating value will survive in the long-term. The key is to focus on what your customers really want.
A new paradigm for sustainable growth
Many companies are pushing financial performance and sidelining environmental and social objectives.
Dream your way to success
It’s not all about business plans and spreadsheets and getting to the next goal. The picture of real success is at least partly in your mind.

Chris Schommer-Pries: Dualizability in Low Dimensional Higher Category Theory (Part 1)
Chris Schommer-Pries (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Abstract: The cobordism hypothesis establishes a powerful relationship between extended topological field theories taking values in a symmetric monoidal higher category and objects in that higher category with various kinds of duality. In this setting an extended topological field theory is a higher categorical extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms which allows for topological bordisms to be decomposed along submanifolds of arbitrary c
Daniel Berwick-Evans: Spaces of field theories and the topology of manifolds
Daniel Berwick-Evans, University of California-Berkeley Abstract: We will explain a way in which geometric field theories can be used to study the topology of manifolds. After setting up the main players as defined by Stolz and Teichner, we'll focus attention on dimensional reduction and quantization. The former allows us to extract numerical invariants whereas the latter can be used to produce a linear approximation (in the sense of Goodwillie calculus) that builds a cohomology theory out of
Joseph Hirsh: Deformations with noncommutative parameters
Joseph Hirsh, City University of New York Abstract: In this talk I will describe the classical yoga of deformation theory---that commutative moduli problems are locally described by dgLie algebras---and provide some examples. Then, importing tools from operad theory, most notably Koszul Duality, I will describe a generalization that classifies the local structure of noncommutative moduli problems. I will conclude by describing some ongoing work to exploit the relationship between noncommutati

Introduction Much of what is most important about management is interpersonal, how we deal with others. Awareness of our own and others’ interpersonal skills can help us enormously in dealing with the work tasks we are responsible for. This unit is from our archive and is an adapted extract from Understanding management (Y159) which is no longer taught by The Open University. If you want to study formally with us, you may wish to explore other courses we offer in

"I Was More of a Citizen": A Puerto Rican Garment Worker Describes Discrimination in the 1920s
We generally think of Puerto Rican migration to the U.S. mainland as largely a post-World War II phenomenon, since more than 800,000 Puerto Ricans came to the United States between 1940 and 1969. But immigration actually started much earlier in the century; between 1915 and 1930 more than 50,000 Puerto Rican migrants headed for the United States--especially New York City. The new immigrants faced a mixed reception, particularly from immigrants from other countries. In this interview for the radi
