World's Most Popular TED Speaker, Ken Robinson, Shares 5 Secrets Of Giving A Great Speech | André Fiuza | Scoop.it

How do you take a presentation from good to great?

Preparation, confidence, and the ability to relax, Ken Robinson told Business Insider in an interview at this week’s World Business Forum in New York. Eight years ago, Robinson gave a TED Talk on how schools stifle creativity. It has since been watched more than 28 million times, making it the most popular TED Talk ever.

We asked Robinson to share his top secrets for giving a compelling speech. Here’s what he said.

Foreign students flocking to Boston - The Boston Globe

Foreign students flocking to Boston - The Boston Globe | André Fiuza | Scoop.it
“ Greater Boston is among the top destinations in the country for foreign students, whose spending on tuition and living expenses pumps hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy, according to a report released Friday. The Boston metropolitan area ranks third in the number of foreign students studying at local colleges, behind New York and Los Angeles, and second only to New York in the amount they spend on tuition, according to the report, by the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank and the Wall Street bank JP Morgan Chase & Co. Between 2008 and 2012, foreign students in the Boston area spent $1.8 billion on college tuitions, according to the report. They also spent $933 million on living costs, such as rent.”

Graphene nanoribbons could be the savior of Moore’s Law

Graphene nanoribbons could be the savior of Moore’s Law | André Fiuza | Scoop.it

With each new generation of microchips, transistors are being placed closer and closer together. This can only go on so long before there’s no more room to improve, or something revolutionary has to come along to change everything. One of the materials that might be the basis of that revolution is none other than graphene. Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley are hot on the trail of a form of so-called nanoribbon graphene that could increase the density of transistors on a computer chip by as much as 10,000 times.

Moore's law may continue ... 

 

Yaroslav Writtle's curator insight, February 18, 2014 6:44 AM

Interesting stuff - wonder what could this mean for computing capacity 10 years down the line?

Benjamin Rees's curator insight, March 27, 2015 8:06 AM

For the past few decades, the concept of Moore's Law has proven to be relatively accurate in saying that the density of transistors able to be placed on an integrated circuit roughly doubles every two years. However, as transistors are manufactured to be placed increasingly close together, it can be foreseen that there will soon be no more room for improvement using current methods and materials. Recent developments in graphene technology may allow for more spatially efficient  circuits in the future, thereby continuing this trend of doubling transistor density.
