Multicultural teams – curse or blessing? With this provocative question, Lianne Roembke presents in a rather drastic manner the spectrum of the possible outcomes of multicultural teamwork. What makes this remark so powerful is that it applies not only to missionaries (as originally implied by the author), but to any groups which may include members from several cultures or nations: diplomats, soldiers, consultants, marketers, sportspeople, flight attendants, scientists, or engineers. Indeed, managing multicultural teams can be a tightrope walk: on the one hand, when not handled properly, such teams can turn into extremely irksome stumbling blocks for a company or a project.

Transformation – sometimes it takes seconds, and sometimes it takes hundreds of millions of years. The transformation of our earth over the last 600 million years of its 4.5 billion year history would have been spectacular to see – supercontinents breaking up; tectonic plates drifting, crashing, and tossing up mountain ranges towards the skies; ice ages coming and going; massive volcanic events; sea level rising and falling; and explosions of life followed by mass extinction events.
The ground under our feet is the historical record that geoscientists analyze to reconstruct this history – and FME® is an invaluable tool for one such group of scientists. Neftex Petroleum Consultants Ltd., based in the U.K., specializes in the collation, integration, and interpretation of large – often global – geoscience datasets, mapping the layers under the Earth’s surface that represent these major historical events…

A Studies about Single-Case Research Designs
Single-case research designs are a diverse and powerful set of procedures useful for demonstrating causal relations among clinical phenomena. Although such designs are flexible, efficient, and have been used to make key advances since the earliest days of psychological science, they are currently extremely underused by psychological scientists and clinicians. We review the historical and theoretical foundations of single-case research designs, including case studies, quasi-experimental designs, and experimental designs used in single-case or small-group studies.
We also summarize the methodological requirements, primary design options, and challenges and limitations of each approach. Recent examples of each design are provided to illustrate the usefulness of these valuable—albeit somewhat forsaken—research methods for scientific and clinical advancement. keep reading…
A Study on Sustainable Social-Ecological Systems: An Impossibility?
Abstract: Given rapid changes in large-scale human and biophysical processes—carbon emissions, population increase and migrations, over harvesting and pollution leading to loss of species—scientists are worried that many of the social-ecological systems existing today may collapse by the end of the 21st century. Is this an exaggerated worry? The thesis I will present is that the negative prognosis will indeed occur in many parts of the world if we do not worry a great deal about these processes and their consequences.
More important than simply worrying, however, is the development of a strong diagnostic method for analyzing the diversity of processes and the multiplicity of potential social and biophysical solutions that are needed to cope effectively with these varied processes. Past efforts to impose simple solutions to these complex problems have frequently led to worse outcomes than the problems addressed.. Read more on Sustainable Social-Ecological Systems..
Most people — including scientists and politicians — now recognize that a serious energy crisis looms in our future. Human populations use an enormous amount of energy, and as the population grows and standards of living increase, we will require even more. Unfortunately, the energy sources currently available to us all have major drawbacks in the long term. Read more…
Case Study of Eagle Genomics
Taverna, an open source workﬂow management system developed by the myGrid computer science group at The University of Manchester,is the most widely adopted open source work ﬂow productin scientiﬁc informatics. It allows scientists to easily design and execute a series of computational-or data-manipulation steps -workﬂows -that analyses their data sets intuitively and effciently. Such experimentation is a key element of biological research,transforming research data into knowledge.
Tavernaenables scientists with limited computing knowledge,technical resources and/or support to construct highly complex analyses of public and private data and computational resources,usingast and ardWindows,UNIX or Mac OSX computer. Ithas been adopted by over 350 organisations worldwide, including NASA, and – although academic researchers and consortia are its traditional user-base – commercial organisations were becoming increasingly interested overrecent years.
Case Study about Cost-Beneﬁt Analysis: Regulations to Lower the Level of Sulphur in Gasoline
Abstract: The Canadian Cost-Benefit Analysis Guide: Regulatory Proposals, sets out the general methodology and analytical steps to perform a cost-benefit analysis of proposed regulatory changes. To make the Guide operational, this case study has been prepared following the analytical approach recommended by the Guide. In 1994 the sulphur content of Canadian gasoline was found to be high and varied widely across the country. Scientists and health experts have found evidence that emissions of pollutants from vehicles cause considerable harm to the health of Canadians and to the environment.
Introduction: The Canadian Regulatory Analysis Guide lays out the general methodology and analytical steps to perform a cost-benefit analysis of proposed regulatory changes. To make the Guide operational, this case study has been prepared following the analytical approach recommended by the Guide. The case study first identifies the alternative options and then a cost-benefit analysis is carried out to evaluate the alternatives. The report also provides a summary table to present the main findings of the analysis.

Abstract: Genetic Engineering (GE) is a controversial issue, with environmentalists, scientists, public interest groups, and governments debating the safety and viability of GE. The case traces the growth and development of GE and attempts to analyze the benefits and drawbacks of GE and Genetically Modified (GM) crops and animals. It also discusses the general public opinion and government legislations on GM foods. The case ends with a brief discussion on recent developments concerning GM crops. Click here to read more…
Students 2 Science operates a large modern chemistry laboratory for the sole purpose of hosting Middle and High School students. Students work side by side with local scientists and operate sophisticated laboratory instruments like spectrophotometers and chromatographs. The students acquire an increased excitement and enthusiasm for studying science (STEM). We make science less intimidating, so that more students will want to peruse STEM related careers. Students 2 Science is supported by generous donations from Corporations, Foundations and Individual Donors. We needed a good way to keep track of our donors, volunteers and Grant applications.
