When Engaging with Your Stakeholders Is Worth Its Weight in Gold
Given two gold mines with the same amount of gold in the ground, the same cost of extraction and the same worldwide demand, why is one mine valued 10 times more than the other? Because one has local support and the other doesn't, argues Wharton professor Witold Henisz. In a new research paper, Henisz and his colleagues show how cooperating with, rather than antagonizing, external stakeholders generates sustainable shareholder value for companies around the world.Author(s):

War Is "a Blessing, Not a Curse": The Case for Why We Must Fight
In 1917, voices were raised outside Congress on both sides of the issue of American involvement in the European war. Shortly before President Woodrow Wilson's call for war on April 2, 1917, the editors of a conservative magazine, the North American Review , laid out the basic arguments for U.S. participation. Fundamentally, they saw the war as a struggle between democracy and barbarism. Similar statements and speeches--as well as more coercive measures--gradually captured the public discourse.

Synthesis and characterization of the properties of Ti3SiC2/SiC and Ti3SiC2/TiC composites
In 1996, the ternary compound titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) was for the first timesynthesized as a single-phase, fully dense compound. Its characterization revealed aunique combination of properties. For its high fracture toughness, low hardness toelastic modulus ratio and excellent damage tolerance, it was dubbed a soft ceramic. Italso displayed good thermal shock and oxidation resistance. In this work, thereinforcement of this material with silicon carbide and titanium carbide particles w

Information at Early Design Stages
This paper concentrates on information at the early stages of the design process. However those do not concern all the information regarding the task available to the designer or the already existing solutions, but the information generated by the designer during the process of problem solving. The creative nature of architectural design and the lack of complete information during the process determine the role and the place of the information system in the design. It is necessary that the infor

21L.703 Studies in Drama: Theater and Science in a Time of War (MIT)
This course explores the creation (and creativity) of the modern scientific and cultural world through study of western Europe in the 17th century, the age of Descartes and Newton, Shakespeare, Rembrandt and Molière. The class compares period thinking to present-day debates about the scientific method, art, religion, and society. This team-taught, interdisciplinary subject draws on a wide range of literary, dramatic, historical, and scientific texts and images, and involves theatrical exp

Material & Space: Synthesis Strategies based on Evolutionary Developmental Biology
A material system can be defined as a set of self-organized materials, defining a certain spatial arrangement. In architecture, this material arrangement acts as a threshold for space, though space often only appears as a by-product of the material organization. Treating space as a resulting, therefore secondary, independent product minimizes the capacity to generate architecture that is astutely aware of concerns of functionality, environment and energy. An effective arrangement of material can

Lecture by Tom Strala
Presented by the Furniture Program at California College of the Arts, this lecture was filmed on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, in Timken Lecture Hall on the San Francisco campus. Tom Strala is an architect who builds no houses, but rather tables, chairs, and lamps. Strala creates pieces with the idea that items for the home -- including basic necessities such as furniture and lighting -- should be designed with the intent that they are a work of sculptural art. Based in Switzerland, he consider
