Why Business Leaders Should Act More like Artists - John Maeda - Harvard Business Review

Why Business Leaders Should Act More like Artists - John Maeda - Harvard Business Review | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
"Stereotypes abound about artists: they range from the mild ("they have fuschia-colored hair"), to the absurd ("they starve,"), to the disturbed ("they do things like uncontrollably peeing in the fireplace as depicted in the popular movie Pollock."). Granted I know artists with wild-colored hair and others who are certainly struggling to make ends meet, but they all choose to use the restroom. I've also met artists who are quite plain-looking and plain-acting CEOs, lawyers, stockbrokers, and scientists..."

Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online

Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

I had the chance to talk with a class of college undergraduates (real, live people in an actual classroom) a few weeks ago and one of the topics that came up made me re-examine a common problem for online teachers– cheating.

 

Academic cheating is nothing new but the impact it has on online education seems easier, and more widespread, than in face-to-face classrooms. This is a gut feeling, and the research suggests cheating and plagiarism are widespread in every educational environment, at any age, across every culture.

 

(Those of us in direct, live contact with smiling students are fooling ourselves to think classroom cheating is less prevalent, or that we can somehow catch evil-doers more easily in person.) I’ve written about ways to prevent online cheating here at On Teaching Online before, here.

"Monopsony vs. Monopoly: The Economic Battlefield of the NBA Lockout
By David Berri

With the NBA away, sports fans are looking for something to satisfy their need to watch teams strive for victory.  Well, why not take a look at the teams competing in the lockout?
Okay, maybe this is a contest only a sports economist could love. But while it may not appeal to everyone, the labor dispute is still best thought of as a contest between two teams. 


The first team is the NBA owners. The owners are the dominant buyer in the world market for elite basketball talent, so they have substantial monopsony power. In the other corner are the players, who are currently trying to disband their union. This union gave the players monopoly power in the sale of elite basketball talent (more specifically, in helping to determine the conditions under which individual players would sell their services). When a monopsony meets a monopoly on the economic battlefield, the outcome is determined by bargaining. And in that case, bargaining power – or what we call leverage – means everything..."

Reading a book versus a screen: Different reading devices, different modes of reading? | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

The study analyzed the differences in reading from various kinds of media (e-book, tablet PC, paper) in two sample groups, young and elderly adults. Each participant read various texts with different levels of complexity on an e-book reader (Kindle 3), on a tablet PC (iPad), and on paper. The reading behavior and the participants' corresponding neural processes were assessed by means of concurrent measures of eye movements (eye tracking) and electrophysiological brain activity (EEG). The criteria that were taken into account and analyzed were changes in the theta frequency band power, reading behavior, text comprehension, and information recall as well as the participants' preferences for the respective medium.

What are end-of-period-adjustments in accounting? ◄Click here | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

End-of-period-adjustments in accounting are journal entries made to the accounts of a business prior to the preparation and distribution of the financial statements for a given accounting period. End-of-period adjustments ensure that the these financial statements reflect the true financial position and performance of a business by allocating to the appropriate period the income earned and expenses incurred. End-of-period adjustments are also known as year-end-adjustments, adjusting-journal-entries and balance-day-adjustments. End-of-period-adjustments apply the matching principle of accounting which include accruals, deferrals and asset value adjustments.
