The mystery of Shane Todd: Did US electronic engineer commit suicide – or was he murdered because he knew too many Chinese secrets? - Asia - World The body of Shane Todd was found on 24 June 2012 by his girlfriend in his apartment in Singapore, hanging from a strap attached to a door. A police autopsy said his death was caused by asphyxiation, but his parents believe he was murdered. They said suicide notes purportedly left by their son were faked and the initial police account of the scene bore little relation to what they found when they arrived at the apartment 48 hours after his death. Mr Todd, who was 31 when he died, had joined the Singapore government-backed Institute for Micro Electronics (IME) 18 months earlier and for the final year of his life worked on an IME project to develop an amplifying device, using gallium nitride (GaN), a heat-resistant material with the potential to make superconductors with many possible uses in the civilian and military fields.

Indultos vs. Condenados Prevaricación, malversación y delitos contra el medio ambiente, los más indultados. Aunque no son los más habituales en términos globales, sí son los delitos que, en porcentaje, acumulan el mayor número de medidas de gracia sobre las condenas totales. Análisis por categoría de delito En cada listado de reales decretos de indultos publicado en el BOE destacan, por encima del resto, las medidas de gracia concedidas a condenados por delitos contra la salud pública. En total, de los 10.350 indultados desde 1996, 2.930 habían sido condenados por ese delito. Para muchos jueces, esta es una muestra del uso del indulto como paliativo contra unas penas demasiado severas en estos delitos, que a veces simplemente consisten en el menudeo de drogas.

Cómo reconstruir el futuro Con ser muy grave la crisis económica por la que atraviesa España, con su dramática consecuencia de seis millones de parados y un empeoramiento general del nivel de vida, su importancia palidece si se la compara con la crisis política e institucional que el país afronta, y que se ha agudizado con las crecientes sospechas sobre la financiación irregular del partido en el poder. Coincide esta situación con el final de un ciclo histórico y la apertura de una nueva etapa llena de incertidumbres. Algunas de las cuestiones que se plantean no son exclusiva ni prioritariamente españolas. Se deben al impacto de la globalización o a las dificultades que tienen muchas naciones para adaptarse a las nuevas reglas de juego que esta implica. Las inquietudes en torno al futuro de la Unión Europea y la moneda única forman parte de esos desequilibrios que afectan también a nuestra situación nacional.

From Crowdfunding To Open Access, Startups Are Experimenting With Academic Research These days may well be the next golden age for universities, and startups are leading the way. For institutions that can feel much like their counterparts from a thousand years ago, universities have witnessed breathtaking change in just a handful of years. The development of Massive Open Online Courses by startups like Udacity, Coursera, and others have forced many staid university administrators to consider how technology can transform higher education, particularly in the dissemination of educational content. And while the hype around these startups may have subsided, the change in mindset they have engendered means that their influence will continue well into the future.

Miguel Ángel Martínez-González, el sabio de la dieta mediterránea SE TARDA MENOS de dos minutos en darse cuenta de que el doctor Miguel Ángel Martínez-González predica con el ejemplo. Sube a pie las escaleras de la facultad hasta el segundo piso en el que imparte una clase de bioestadística a futuros médicos, toma el café sin azúcar y, en un menú de restaurante que ofrece como alternativa lentejas, pasta y carne, elige sin dudar las legumbres. Lleva más de dos décadas buscando evidencia científica que apoye las bondades atribuidas por la tradición a la dieta mediterránea. En el pasillo que hay junto a su despacho del campus en Pamplona, donde se desarrolla la entrevista, cuelgan de un corcho los trabajos que su departamento ha publicado recientemente en revistas científicas. “Es el muro de la autoestima”, bromea.

Global Open Access Portal The Global Open Access Portal (GOAP), funded by the Governments of Colombia, Denmark, Norway, and the United States Department of State, presents a current snapshot of the status of Open Access (OA) to scientific information around the world. For countries that have been more successful implementing Open Access, the portal highlights critical success factors and aspects of the enabling environment. For countries and regions that are still in the early stages of Open Access development, the portal identifies key players, potential barriers and opportunities. The Global Open Access Portal is designed to provide the necessary information for policy-makers to learn about the global OA environment and to view their country’s status, and understand where and why Open Access has been most successful.
