Proposal for MIT Global Environment Initiative seeks public comment
As the world’s population continues to expand, our natural resources will become increasingly strained. In an effort to find sustainable solutions for the planet’s growing population while minimizing environmental impacts, MIT’s Environmental Research Council (ERC) has put forward a detailed implementation plan to establish a Global Environmental Initiative to complement the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI). The interdisciplinary, faculty-led council presented the plan to the MIT community last Thursday in a forum held at the Kirsch Auditorium in the Stata Center. Council members outlined an initiative that would bring together MIT’s “core strengths” across campus to help solve the world’s pressing environmental challenges, from mitigating climate change to curbing contamination and maintaining fresh water supplies.

Tutorial to set up PCSX2, the best emulator for PS2
The end of the previous generation of console games and the start of the current one has been heralded by loads of remakes of games less than a decade or so old, the so-called HD re-edits.

Here is a short tutorial to configure it. BIOS and gamepad setup Once you’ve installed the emulator you’ll get a wizard that lets you select the default plugins and the language for the interface. Leave the plugins as they are and click Next till you get to the section for BIOS setup.
