The cult of efficiency by Janice Gross Stein( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the marketplace of society, efficiency is often used as a code word to advance political agendas. But efficiency alone is not enough to give us what we think we want. Schools are closed, hospitals are reorganized in the name of efficiency, but the results are far from what we desire. Janice Gross Stein argues that the public good demands that we go beyond the cult of efficiency to talk about accountability and choice. As examples she examines public education and universal healthcare as flash points in the debate and argues that the future depends on whether we as citizens can establish new standards of accountability and choice for public service. A new culture of choice must become the axis around which the public conversation about public goods will take place

The universe within from quantum to cosmos by Neil Turok( Recording )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Every technology we rely on today was created by the human mind, seeking to understand the universe around us. Scientific knowledge is our most precious possession, and our future will be shaped by the breakthroughs to come. In this personal, visionary, and fascinating work, Neil Turok, Director of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, explores the transformative scientific discoveries of the past three centuries - from classical mechanics, to the nature of light, to the bizarre world of the quantum and the evolution of the cosmos. Each new discovery has, over time, yielded new technologies causing paradigm shifts in the organization of society. Now, he argues, we are on the cusp of another major transformation: the coming quantum revolution that will supplant our current digital age. Facing this brave new world, Turok calls for creatively re-inventing the way advanced knowledge is developed and shared, and opening access to the vast, untapped pools of intellectual talent in the developing world
