Erica Dhawan - Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence
Connectional Intelligence unlocks the 21st century secrets of success for “getting big things done,” regardless of who you are, where you live, your education, or what you do.

1 Capturing the oil industry

The oil industry is perhaps the archetypal globalised industry. Dominated by a few multi-national companies, it is highly centralised at the level of corporate power but, like corporations, investment and trade in the oil industry are also highly mobile. The long reach of the global oil economy is a consequence of the distance between the location of significant oil reserves and the location of the major markets for oil. The reserves of oil currently expected to last more than fifty years are

1 Evolution versus creation: science and non-science

Science aims to extend our understanding of natural phenomena through testing of explanatory hypotheses by reference to hard evidence. It is not concerned with ideas that cannot be tested in this way, such as subjective opinions (for example, what is good or evil, beautiful or ugly) or religious beliefs (about, say, 'the meaning of life' and the existence of gods or spirits), though we will return to ideas like this at the end of this free course. The remit of science was eloquently summarise

The author of more than twenty books, Berengarten has been something of a maverick in contemporary British poetry.

Modernism in China: Architectural Visions and Revolutions
China’s development and speculation about its future impact on the world are stimulating considerable attention in design-related disciplines internationally. This process has already encouraged various forms of cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary dialogue that will inevitably enrich our understanding of design and improve our responses to future design-related problems.

3.4 Penetration depth

The characteristic length, λ, associated with the decay of the magnetic field at the surface of a superconductor is known as the penetration depth, and it depends on the number density ns of superconducting electrons.

We can estimate a value for λ by assuming that all of the free electrons are superconducting. If we set ns = 1029 m−3, a typical free electron density in a metal, then we find that
