BCLA Open Notebook Science and the Library
This is my April 19, 2007 presentation at the British Columbia Library Association Conference on Open Access. There was only time to do a brief introduction about trends in openness in education and research and how that might affect the needs of scientists in publishing and finding information. I also showed a few screenshots of UsefulChem near the end.

Reduction in junior doctors hours will be beneficial
A study by Franco Cappuccio, Professor of cardiovascular medicine and epidemiology at Warwick Medical School, has shown for the first time that the planned reduction in junior doctors hours will not compromise patient safety and suggests the reduction will actually improve patient care.
The biology of the 21st Century
Professor Denis Noble, who was a pioneer in the field of systems biology building the first working mathematical model of the heart and has been given an honorary degree at Warwick, talks about how the future study of biology will change in the 21st Century.
3.A27 Case Studies in Forensic Metallurgy (MIT)
TV programs such as "Law and Order" show how forensic experts are called upon to give testimony that often determines the outcome of court cases. Engineers are one class of expert who can help display evidence in a new light to solve cases. In this seminar you will be part of the problem-solving process, working through both previously solved and unsolved cases. Each week we will investigate cases, from the facts that make up each side to the potential evidence we can use as engineers to expose
Video: The New Paradigm for Financial Markets: The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What It Means
In the midst of the worst financial upheaval since the Great Depression, George Soros explores the origins of the crisis and its implications for the future. Soros, whose breadth of experience in financial markets is unrivalled, places the current crisis in the context of decades of study of how individuals and institutions handle the boom and bust cycles that now dominate global economic activity. 'This is a once in lifetime moment', says Soros in characterising the scale of financial distress
Heidegger's Being and Time - Fall 2007
Heidegger's Being and Time - Fall 2007. One of the most important philosophical works of the twentieth century, Being and Time is both a systematization of the existential insights of Kierkegaard and Nietzsche and a radicalization of Husserl's phenomenological account of intentionality. What results is an original interpretation of the human condition leading to an account of the nature and limitations of philosophical and scientific theory. This account has important implications for all those
A knowledge-based model for developing location strategies in a DSS for retail planning
Most DSS for retail planning are based on impact assessment models to support the evaluation of plan scenario's. This paper introduces a complementary knowledge-based model to support also the earlier stage of formulating plan scenario's. An analysis of the retail planning problem reveals the main lines of the strategies adopted by most Dutch planners and retailers to achieve their goals. A basic strategy that seems to be appropriate in most problem contexts is formulated in the form of a set of

14.03 Intermediate Applied Microeconomics (MIT)
This class presents microeconomic theory and applications of consumer and producer behavior and welfare analysis at an intermediate level. In addition to standard competitive models, we study deviations due to externalities, asymmetric information, and imperfect rationality.

15.968 The Sociology of Strategy (MIT)
This seminar provides an introduction to scholarship in a growing research community: the sociologists and sociologically-inclined organization theorists who study issues that relate, at least in a broad sense, to the interdisciplinary field of inquiry that is known as "strategy" or "strategic management" research. The course is not designed to survey the field of strategy. Rather, the focus is on getting a closer understanding of the recent work by sociologists and sociologically-oriented organ

Added Value: Implementation of User Requirements in City Simulators
The following contribution discusses the possible consequences of the concept of City Simulators and Digital City Models, which can be obtained from a previously conducted user inquiry in an Urban Planning Department. At the core of the examination are the additional benefit (added value) and the increasing acceptance of digital planning techniques by its users which can be made possible by the implementation of user requirements in City Simulators. Various experiments for cooperative planning i
