Spaceship Earth - a 50th Anniversary

In 1966, the London-based political scientist Barbara Ward published a book titled Spaceship Earth (Columbia University Press: New York, 152 pp.).

She wrote at a time when the revolutionary impacts of computers and global communication were becoming evident.

Now, 50 years later, her ideas seem prescient.

"...the process of change is accelerating. Technology and science have become the common mode of human living and are invading every human institution and…

5 Business-Tipps von Illustrator Diane Boyle

1. Glauben Sie an sich und Ihre Talente. Hören Sie auf Kritik, aber wir wollen dich nicht erschrecken.

2. Tragen Sie eine Notebook die ganze Zeit, man weiß nie, wenn eine Idee kommt.

3. Halten Sie Ihre potenziellen Kollegen und Kunden über das Update informiert oder das Portfolio durch Briefe zu senden, aber zaspamte sie nicht. Manchmal "ist weniger mehr"! Immerhin geht es um Spam und so eine Reihe von, wie "…

Conference organizing

Globally there may be thousands of academic conferences, small and large, held around the world each year.

In my own limited experience, most academic conferences are initiated and organised by academic institutions and staff. The larger meetings may involved commercial conference support services and organizing of various kinds, but the commercial services and organizers have not initiated any of the meetings I have attended.

Currently I am involved with preparations for the…

New Year in an ageing country - Japan

I have been living and working in Japan almost continuously since 1990, and have been seeing the again of Japanese society first hand... in my own extended Japanese family, on the streets, and in the local newspapers.

This week, over New Year, I have been at the house of my late parents in-law. After some years of standing empty, the house is being downsized, renovated, and reoccupied by my single sister-in-law. In this family with three sisters, there are just two marriages, and two…

Advice to a member posting a link to g*ost-writing service for students (re - aims of the Research Cooperative)

Dear (Co-op member),

I see that you are using the Research Cooperative to post content that is in some way relevant to the Co-op, while also including links or copy that promote various businesses that I presume are paying you (or an agent) to produce copy.

That's OK so long as the content you post stays relevant, and that the businesses you promote are not ethically contrary to what the Research Cooperative stands for.

In a recent blog post, you included a link to a…

Tips voor studenten

Afstuderen - en heeft de titel van "aanvrager" maakte plaats voor de langverwachte "student" (de betekenis van die gewoon niet de tijd te begrijpen). Je hebt het gedaan! Volwassen leven is begonnen! Hoera! Verwachtingen uitkomen. Wat is het volgende? Het geeft al snel weg naar de vreugde van de kinderen verwarring: wat te doen met het, met deze vrijheid? Alle nieuwe en onbekende (bekennen) zelfs verschrikkelijk ... Auditorium in plaats van klassen, leraren - in plaats van…

It's time to answer why moon rocks contain fewer volatiles than Earth's

Researchers at Southwest Research Institute consolidated dynamical, warm, and compound models of the Moon's arrangement to clarify the relative absence of unstable components in lunar rocks. Lunar shakes nearly look like Earth rocks in numerous regards, however Moon rocks are more drained in unpredictable components like potassium, sodium, and zinc, which have a tendency to have lower breaking points and vaporize…

How has Regulatory Measures Affected the Animal World

Does your heart pain when you see incidents like street dogs getting severely beaten by people or boiling water is being poured on poor cats? Your feelings for these poor animals imply that that you are an animal lover. It is for sure that such scenes might have made you think of approaching the concerned authority so that you could get these people punished. However, the next moment, you might have thought that your efforts would go in vain because nobody cares about animals. But you will…

Famous robots

Many fictional robots have achieved literary and cinematic fame. I am sure the following list should be longer. Please add a comment with your own list!

Why robots? The working kinds that already occupy factories around the world are merely unthinking machines, but there is serious discussion of what might happen if truly thinking robots are invented. The challenge is scientific, ethical, and philosophical all at the same time.

Has anyone produced a philosophical robot, in fact…

Enrol at Philanthropy University to develop strategies for Research Cooperative?

The Research Cooperative has been set up as an NPO but lacks funding to develop effectively and to become a registered, officially recognised NPO.

Our network still appears to attractive to many people, but could be more useful with more activity of various kinds.

So... if any of our members has time and energy, I encourage them to look at the Philanthropy University, which has recently opened shop with a range of free…

Don't tell it all

Look - I managed to keep the number of words down to four even though I could easily make the title much longer.

Longer means more important, right? Especially if all the buzz words and tropes can be included. It's hard for some to resist the grand academic subtitle. Using a long subtitle is a great way to pad the title space.

Here's an example of the full whizz-bang:

"Don't tell it all: Short titles lead to greater interest and academic impact,…
