ITAG : Enterprise Architecture Guide The MIT Enterprise Architecture Guide (EAG) documents MIT's architectural principles and goals, the current state of MIT's enterprise architecture, and a future state architectural vision. The EAG also includes information regarding the ITAG architecture review process. Since this document serves to inform developers about available enterprise tools and services, we expect the EAG will be useful to enterprise system developers across the institute. Because this is a constantly evolving document, community feedback will drive future ITAG agendas and thus influence content in future versions. ITAG expects to update the EAG on a quarterly basis.

Hinkley Point EPR Hinkley Point C nuclear power station is a project to construct a 3,200 MW two reactor nuclear power station in Somerset, England that has attracted controversy.[3] On 18 October 2010, the British government announced that Hinkley Point – already the site of the disused Hinkley Point A and the still operational Hinkley Point B power stations – was one of the eight sites it considered suitable for future nuclear power stations.[4] NNB Generation Company, a subsidiary of EDF, submitted an application for development consent to the Infrastructure Planning Commission on 31 October 2011.[5] In October 2013 the government announced that it had approved subsidized feed-in prices for the electricity production of Hinkley Point C.,[1] with the plant scheduled to be completed in 2023 and remain operational for 60 years. A protest group, Stop Hinkley, was formed to campaign for the closure of Hinkley Point B and oppose any expansion at the Hinkley Point site. History[edit]

It’s not an easy decision to make. Whether custom-built or vendor-based, projects can fail. Before making the transition, you should carefully consider the following differences surrounding support, customization and deployment. All things being equal, the primary difference between open source and vendor products is the source of support. Open source support options are “do it yourself.”

To Solve a Social Problem, You Need More Than a Theory — You Need a Randomized Controlled Trial - Wired Science In 1993, after five years of grad school and low-wage postdoctoral research, Michael Kremer got a job as a professor of economics at MIT. With his new salary, he finally had enough money to fund a long-held desire: to return to Kenya’s Western Province, where he had lived for a year after college, teaching in a rural farming community. He wanted to see the place again, reconnect with his host family and other friends he’d made there. A Trace in the Sand, Software Architecture Journal by Ruth Malan April 2014 It's Me Day! Woohoo!
