  • A more engaging movie experience depends on sitting closer to the screen. But how close is close? The answer varies by screen size. The same viewing distance that is “close” for a 70-foot screen is “far” for a 20-foot screen. To account for screens of different sizes, we need a special way to measure viewing distance. That’s why engineers consider viewing distance as a multiple of Picture Height (PH). Based on widely-accepted measures for the threshold of visual acuity, 2K presentation will satisfy audience members with 20/20 vision who sit at distances of 3.

  • Since 1980, the principal form of crop loss assistance in the United States has been provided through the Federal Crop Insurance Program. The Federal Crop Insurance Act of 1980 was intended to replace disaster programs with a subsidized insurance program that farmers could depend on in the event of crop losses. Crop insurance was seen as preferable to disaster assistance because it was less costly and hence could be provided to more producers, was less likely to encourage moral hazard, and less likely to encourage producers to plant crops on marginal lands.

  • These talks are really helpful to show you the competition among Ph.D. graduates, and they may also give you an idea of the recent research topics in economics.
