  • As a people, we want to believe that we can learn, change, and master whatever comes our way. The ability to ‘‘pull ourselves up by our bootstraps’’ has long been one of our most treasured workplace traits. We have continually wanted to reinvent ourselves at the organizational and employee levels, which speaks to our longstanding ability to adapt to stressful changes.

  • Under a BAU scenario, the stock of greenhouse gases could more than treble by the end of the century, giving at least a 50% risk of exceeding 5°C global average temperature change during the following decades. This would take humans into unknown territory. An illustration of the scale of such an increase is that we are now only around 5°C warmer than in the last ice age. Such changes would transform the physical geography of the world. A radical change in the physical geography of the world must have powerful implications for the...

  • Global security and world order are threatened as never before by myriad sources of instability. Foremost is the collapse of macroeconomic stability and fiscal certainty. Next, possibly, is the lack of concord among the powers of the world, with Russian, Chinese, and American competition and mutual suspicion preventing the confident resolution of a number of outstanding and intractable subsidiary issues. Some of those concern the spread of nuclear weapon capacity and the resilience of terror and terroristic movements...

  • There is no unique definition among investors of what green investing entails. However, for the purpose of this paper, „green‟ investments refer broadly to low carbon and climate resilient investments made in companies, projects and financial instruments that operate primarily in the renewable energy, clean technology, environmental technology or sustainability related markets as well as those investments that are climate change specific.

  • After decades of exponential increase in computing power per dollar, the HEC community faces great challenges in creating the hardware, software, and systems to achieve and exploit the next few orders of magnitude increase in HEC capability expected by 2020. These challenges include developing applications and system architectures that effectively utilize billion-fold concurrency, reducing the energy per computation by orders of magnitude, achieving system resilience at extreme scales, and enabling future revolutions in simulation and big-data-enabled science and technology. ...

  • The data center is home to the computational power, storage, and applications necessary to support an enterprise business. The data center infrastructure is central to the IT architecture, from which all content is sourced or passes through. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered.

  • XML is a text-based markup language that has taken the programming world by storm. More powerful than HTML yet less demanding than SGML, XML has proven itself to be flexible and resilient. XML is the perfect tool for formatting documents with even the smallest bit of complexity, from Web pages to legal contracts to books. However, XML has also proven itself to be indispensable for organizing and conveying other sorts of data as well, thus its central role in web services like SOAP and XML-RPC.

  • Transitioning to a low carbon and climate resilient economy, and more broadly „greening growth‟ will require shifting significant amounts of capital from fossil fuels and resource-intensive and polluting technologies to newer, clean technology and infrastructure. The appropriate investment landscape will also need to be supported by policy to drive additional capital towards „greening‟ or accelerated phase-out of long-lived black assets such as coal-fired power plants, refineries, buildings and energy infrastructure.
