Centers - Advanced Academic ProgramsAdvanced Academic Programs Center for Advanced Governmental Studies The Johns Hopkins University Center for Advanced Governmental Studies encompasses a broad set of programs and initiatives designed to enhance understanding of the role, function, and impact of government. Based at the Johns Hopkins Washington, DC Center in Dupont Circle, the Center for Advanced Governmental Studies serves as a forum for policy discussions and provides a venue for unbiased efforts to expand knowledge of the various governmental components, how they interact, and how they comply with their mandated accountability in administering the affairs of state.

Food security News, Research and Analysis - The Conversation Division between the have and have nots is likely to widen – and food is one area where many will go without. Climate change is affecting all regions of the globe. But some places, such as Africa, are more vulnerable than others. With most of the world's potential farmland already in use, it may be time to start foraging. Little is known about how parasitic plants live side-by-side with their hosts. Tools for Reading and Editing Exif Data of Photographs Most digital camera record and save EXIF data with every photograph. Learn about tools that can help you view and edit Exif tags of your photographs. When you capture a photograph with your digital camera, the camera will not only store the current date and time into the image file but even the camera settings. The information that is recorded by the camera into the photograph may include details about the camera model itself, the lens that was used, shutter speed, aperture, focal length and so on.
Stacking Problems (a generalized Tower of Hanoi) — a note by Eddie The Head In this note we will discuss a few ways to efficiently stack a collection of elements having a few constraints in mind. It consists of three pegs fastened to a stand, and of eight circular discs of wood or cardboard each of which has a hole in the middle so that a peg can be put through it. These discs are of different radii, and initially they are placed all on one peg, so that the biggest is at the bottom, and the radii of the successive discs decrease as we ascend: thus the smallest disc is at the top. This arrangement is called the Tower. The problem is to shift the discs from one peg to another in such a way that a disc shall never rest on one smaller than itself, and finally to transfer the tower (i.e. all the discs in their proper order) from the peg on which they initially rested to one of the other pegs. Let denote the number of ways to transfer n disks from the source tower to the destination tower.
Terrorism News, Research and Analysis - The Conversation The new head of Oxford university says it did but while some took post-tragedy patriotism too far, others were pursuing an old agenda. A war of words is being waged on social media by terrorist groups trying to recruit Australian teenagers to join the fight in the Middle East. Quizzed about last week's sensational cabinet leak, Tony Abbott says people around Parliament House want to focus on "process but the public want the government to focus on "outcomes". Elementary Techniques used in the IMO (International Mathematical Olympiad) - Invariants — a note by Anqi Li This will be quite a long introduction, so please bear with me. Invariants Part Note: I assume the reader has familiarised himself with Introduction to Invariance Principle Invariants are particularly useful in analysis of games, transformations and questions of the like. Basically, the main motivation behind applying the invariance principle is to find something that does not change, when something is repeated, whence the important usage of this in algorithms. Quoting Problem-Solving Strategies, here is a non-exhausted list to keep in mind when applying invariance.
Sustainable food supply chains: what we can learn from Greece and Ethiopia Poverty is definitely not some bucolic ideal that we should romanticise. It is ugly, brutal and should be fought against. But there are lessons from the poor that we, in affluent (and frequently complacent) urban Australia, appear to have forgotten. It might do us well to re-learn some of them. When asked last week to consider my views on the so-called “potato revolution” in Greece, the first thing that came to my mind was how sad it is that it takes financial hardship and deprivation to point people back to sensible, rational and sustainable approaches to food and their communities. The potato revolution is a shift back to direct relationships between farmers and consumers brought on by the Greek recession and the imposed austerity measures that have left many ordinary people unemployed or on dramatically shrunken incomes while prices remain high.
