  • Complacency is dangerous, especially in a rapidly changing world. For decades, Japanese bankers were complacent with a rapidly growing economy and with cozy relationships with government bureaucrats who pursued policies that virtually eliminated traditional banking risks. Rapid economic growth, for instance, provided a steady flow of deposits, which in turn financed corporate expansion. Rapid economic growth fur- ther fueled corporate profits and asset inflation that made the repayment of loans almost...

  • Psychiatric diagnosis requires doctors to make judgements based on their understanding of their patients’ mental states and emotional processes, and relate these to a ‘normal’ or ‘healthy standard’. Clearly this exercise is (at the very least) much more difficult where doctor and patient do not share a language, a set of concepts around the nature of mind and emotion, and an understanding of what behaviours fall within and without each others’ cultural norms.

  • In the aftermath of World War II, the United States enjoyed an easy preeminence in the world economy. Neither the US education system, nor the US tax system, nor American savings habits were criticized on grounds of international competitiveness. During the 1980s, however, Americans took notice of their faults as Japan and the European Union both seemed destined to challenge US preeminence. For different reasons neither Japan nor the European Union prospered during the 1990s but the US economy thrived on a technology boom.

  • Works of art are inscribed by the artist on the surface of reality not for their own sake. They are created in order to produce in the spectator those precisely modulated feelings whose constituent elements are represented by the letters, words and sentences of the aesthetic alphabet. We go out of our way to experience such modified feelings, both positive and negative, because they can stand in for genuine phenomena in such a way that, in being contemplated, they give rise to genuine and subtle pleasure. This pleasure has the advantage that it is in a certain sense cut...

  • At the global level, the relationship between population and environ- mental impact is not easy to test in a way that leads to reliable and non- spurious estimates. This is because of the lack of data on environmental degradation covering a sufficiently large number of countries over a suffi- ciently large period of time. It is for this reason that studies have tended to focus on CO2 emissions and energy use, for which cross-country and time- series data are available.

  • Themore recent research of Sapp and Tiwari (2004), however, argues that the smart money effect documented in prior studies is an artifact of these studies’ failure to account for themomentumfactor in stock returns. Their argument can be synthesized as follows. Stocks that perform well tend to continue doing well (Jegadeesh and Titman (1993)). Investors tend to put their money into ex post best-performing funds. These funds necessarily have disproportionate hold- ings of ex post best-performing stocks.

  • Today the term big data draws a lot of attention, but behind the hype there's a simple story. For decades, companies have been making business decisions based on transactional data stored in relational databases. Beyond that critical data, however, is a potential treasure trove of non-traditional, less structured data: weblogs, social media, email, sensors, and photographs that can be mined for useful information. Decreases in the cost of both storage and compute power have made it feasible to collect this data - which would have been thrown away only a few years ago.

  • In the military, you cannot fight a battle without ammunition, guns, food and transport. This is an aspect of logistics. Similarly, you cannot run a project without certain requirements, e.g. you cannot develop a curriculum without a budget, subject experts, students to benefit from the curriculum, and so forth. Project Risks Project risks are the anticipated and unanticipated obstacles that might arise in the course of a given project. A risk analysis is conducted in order to isolate the most likely ones, and involves answering the question: “What could go wrong?” ...

  • While one doubts that works of art are ever deeply prized for their aesthetic qualities alone, it is probably true that in Western societies, and in others with highly developed art traditions, aesthetic notions are most perfectly manifested in works of art, and are given their most refined expression in that type of discourse known as the philosophy of art. But the aesthetic notions so manifested and refined are those of members of the art world, not necessarily those of the general population.

  • In this paper we study the question, whether the technique of botnet tracking can be extended to analyze and mitigate P2P based botnets. Roughly speaking, we adapt the three steps of botnet tracking in the following way using Storm Worm as a case study: In the first step, we must get hold of a copy of the bot binary. In the case of this botnet, we use spam traps to col- lect Storm Worm generated spam and client side honeypots to simulate the infection process.

  • The principle underlying the development of the ACT derives from the work of E. F. Lindquist (1901–1978). Lindquist, a pioneer in educational measurement and a cofounder of ACT, devoted much of his professional life to demonstrating that the best way to gauge students’ readiness for college is to measure as directly as possible their mastery of the knowledge and skills required for success in college studies. The tests of educational development in the ACT measure a broad range of educationally significant knowledge and skills.

  • Therefore we need to work with government and business if we are to live within the means of one planet. Reducing our Ecological Footprint personally and across UK institutions is not only better for the planet, but reduces our reliance on other countries, increases our energy security and saves money. The UK government was the first in the world to commit to enshrine in law a 60% cut in carbon emissions by 2050. However, we will need an 80% reduction, as the scientific evidence continues to show.

  • Financial capability involves knowledge and skills, but attempts to improve these may not lead to better outcomes. What people choose to know and what they do with their knowledge may primarily depend on their intrinsic psychological attributes. Behavioural economics has identified a collection of deep seated cognitive biases that influence decisions in both financial and non-financial contexts. There is considerable evidence that these factors are present, though how widespread they are remains controversial.
