Global Brains: Knowledge and Competencies for the 21st Century
Owing to the recent forces of globalization, the world is a very different place than it was just two decades ago. The world-wide movements toward trade deregulation, privatization, and the lowering of tariff barriers, coupled with the information revolution, has made obsolete many of the more traditional ways of thinking and behaving. If we are to succeed in this new, fast-paced, diverse, and complex global economy, we will need to equip ourselves with new skills and new understandings. We need to be more competent than ever before. But more than that, we need to develop a new mindset for this changing world, which Ferraro calls “global brains.” More ...

Navigate the Noise: Investing in the New Age of Media and Hype
Transform today's surplus of investment information into a high-level investment strategy. In an investment climate characterized by rapidly increasing access to information, it has become a real problem to sort out the legitimate financial advice, grounded in traditional analysis, from the constant stream of useless information, or "noise."

(from Coriolanus) Kenneth Gross explores Shakespeare's deep fascination with dangerous and disorderly forms of speaking--especially rumor, slander, insult, vituperation, and curse--and through them offers a vision of the work of words in his plays. Coriolanus's taunts or Lear's curses force us to think not just about how Shakespeare's characters speak, but also about how they hear, overhear, and mishear what is spoken, how rumor becomes tragic knowledge for Hamlet, or opens Othello to fantastic jealousies. Gross also shows how Shakespeare's preoccupation with "noisy" speech echoed and transformed a broader cultural obsession with the perils of rumor, slander, and libel in Renaissance England. More ...
