This course examines several aspects of the global capital markets, including private and public financial intermediaries, domestic and global security markets, organized exchanges for stock and bond securities trading, and capitalization structure. We will also learn the mechanics of the buy-side/sell-side, the role of investment bankers and brokers, the underwriting process, various types of financial securities and derivatives, and other topics that are timely to today’s global markets.

This video discusses the history of Thanksgiving, its traditions and celebrations. Colonists, Native Americans, puritans, Abraham Lincoln, parades, football, turkeys, turducken, and family are all topics discussed. Very thorough and offers great details about Thanksgiving. (Running Time 9:17)
Esta asignatura ofrece una perspectiva global de los fundamentos biológicos en los que se basan las técnicas de computación biológica. También se realiza un análisis detallado de las técnicas de computación evolutiva y su utilización para resolver problemas dentro del campo de la Inteligencia Artificial y se describe la manera en que ciertos paradigmas biológicos han sido utilizados para diseñar métodos de resolución de problemas.
The aim of this report is to synthesise the Capital work over the last two years, identifying the most promising strands for development in educational technology as well as the circumstances that need to be created to take up these opportunities. Importantly, this report structures the work in order to communicate findings as clearly as possible for a wide audience of researchers, policy makers and education leaders.,Year 3 final report: Shaping Contexts to realise the potential of technologies
The aim of the Service Engineering Laboratory is to explore the concepts of network based services by carrying out practical laboratory work that allows deeper understanding of the requirements and best practices for network services. Students will carry out practical work on protocols and service provision in wireless networks.
Students develop an understanding of visible air pollutants with an incomplete combustion demonstration, a "smog in a jar" demonstration, building simple particulate matter collectors, and exploration of engineering roles related to air pollution. In an associated literacy activity, students learn basic marketing concepts and techniques, and the principles of comparative analysis, while creating an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. Note: You may want to set up the activities for Air Pollution
This dissertation will analyze Salinger’s three main protagonists, Holden Caulfield, Sergeant X, and Seymour Glass, who could not endure the pain of living a spiritual life in America and achieved symbolic or physical death at the end of their stories. It will challenge existential critic William Wiegand, who uses Kierkegaard’s concept of “Angst.” This dissertation acknowledges Wiegand’s use of the concept of “Angst,” but it opposes his conclusion because it is not acceptable from
This paper analyses the specifics and the tendencies in building the knowledge society as well as the role of the universities in this process. Some European policies and programs dedicated to the new role of the universities in realizing the Lisbon Strategy are analysed as well. It is emphasized on the importance of integration of the knowledge triangle (education, research and innovation) into a research university and on the urgent need to re-design the university activities according to
Developing a pattern language is a non-trivial problem. A critical requirement is a method to support pattern writers with abstraction, so as they can produce generalised patterns. In this paper, we address this issue by developing a structured process of generalisation. It is important that this process is initiated through engaging participants in identifying initial patterns, i.e. directly dealing with the 'cold-start' problem. We have found that short case study descriptions provide a produc
Currently, combined community/content environments gain increasing importance in different areas of life, ranging from private to educational to corporate contexts. However, since they are still a novel achievement it is not so clear how they should be organised in order to their successful operation. For gaining a deeper insight in what makes such an environment work, the authors systematically analysed two public environments by evaluating user data and an online questionnaire covering the fol
This paper describes the development and implementation of learning and teaching experiment to encourage the use of e-portfolio in language learning courses and also the integration of English courses with professional studies of engineering students. This is an ongoing project which is annually developed and improved based on student feedback the focus being on collaborative and communicative language learning. New learning environments, such as learning platforms, e.g. R5 Generation, Skype and
The aim of this paper is to present the development and implementation of an interactive environment via WEB for the training of non-centralized technician teams that work with the maintenance of ambient monitoring equipment. The case presented here is concerned to the network of Pluviologgers installed in the State of Santa Catarina, Brazil. The tools used for the construction of the WEB environment and, also, the requirements are detailed. The methodology and the techniques presented in this c
Provides an understanding of the complex and challenging public health issue of food security and in a world where one billion people are under-nourished while another billion are overweight.
This unique training addresses the institutional culture of five responder groups: law enforcement, EMS, fire, public health, and private security in an attempt at fostering understanding among these groups.
In this extended abstract we outline a Web-based learning approach for e-Business integration issues. We present a virtual toolbox, including an advisable open source tool and Web Service Application Programming Interfaces (WS APIs). By applying a collaborative learning model and by incorporating Web 2.0 features such as Web services, operating with the SOAP protocol, we were able to increase the motivational background as well as the learning success of our students significantly.
Provides students with a basic understanding of the science of demography and health implications of major population issues in the contemporary world.
