Shaffer Since the dawn of VHS and the birth of the rental industry, the direct-to-video film has existed. This fresh new world more or less replaced the second-run theatrical grindhouse market dominated by Roger Corman and other filmmakers and producers like him. Human Research Protections FAQs Related to Informed Consent The HHS regulations at 45 CFR part 46 for the protection of human subjects in research require that an investigator obtain the legally effective informed consent of the subject or the subject’s legally authorized representative, unless (1) the research is exempt under 45 CFR 46.101(b); (2) the IRB finds and documents that informed consent can be waived (45 CFR 46.116(c) or (d)); or (3) the IRB finds and documents that the research meets the requirements of the HHS Secretarial waiver under 45 CFR 46.101(i) that permits a waiver of the general requirements for obtaining informed consent in a limited class of research in emergency settings. When informed consent is required, it must be sought prospectively, and documented to the extent required under HHS regulations at 45 CFR 46.117. [Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations at 21 CFR part 50 may also apply if the research involves a clinical investigation regulated by FDA.]

Travel Search: Up Close and Personal Last week, over 200 online marketers met in the Emerald City of Seattle for the first ever SES Travel Edition Conference. On top of the online travel industry growing at a rate of 20 to 22 percent year-over-year, travel meta search is growing even faster than the rest of the industry, and is eroding market share from the OTAs (online travel agents) such as Expedia Orbitz, and Travelocity, among others. Accordingly, direct bookings (airlines, hotels, cruises, car rentals, etc.) are increasing and account for almost 60 percent of all online travel bookings, thanks to the increase in referrals directly from travel search engines.

Crowdfunding Conservation: 10 Inspiring Projects Crowdfunding relies on the collective effort of tens, hundreds or thousands of individuals – each contributing a small amount of money – to make something happen. It’s already been used to make a giant spider robot, attempt to build a Death Star and all sorts of other high tech kind of things; So why not conservation? Crowdfunding conservation is for me, just another cracking example of Citizen Science. Sometimes people don’t have the time, know-how, or desire to get involved with conservation at home or abroad, but they want to do something – and so crowdfunding can provide the answer. So, how about using it for conservation? Well, here’s 10 great projects aiming to crowdfund conservation.

Playlist: William S. Burroughs On the occasion of what would have been William Burroughs’ 100th birthday, we present a selection of movies about one of the 20th century’s greatest authors. Need examples of William Burroughs’ lasting cultural influence? Look no further than the Fandor library; we have a handful of films devoted to the storied literary figure—great viewing for both the serious Burroughs fan as well as the uninitiated curious about the inimitable iconoclast’s life and work. Consider this modest tribute a tip of the hat to a truly original individual whose impact on the cultural discourse continues unabated. Also today on Keyframe, Robert Avila dives deeper into each of these films, “plumbing the depths” of Burroughs’ legacy:William Burroughs at 100 (February 5, 2014) 1.

Dear Student: No, I Won’t Change the Grade You Deserve You’ve all heard the trope: Children today grow up believing it’s their effort that matters. Everyone gets a trophy, and everyone deserves to be praised just for showing up. As one author put it: “Parents have moved from feeling they should give their children everything they need, to giving them everything they want.” You can debate how much truth there is here. But plenty of professors have told me that when many of their students get to college, they lug into the classroom a sense of academic entitlement—a belief that their papers and exams should be graded on how hard they’ve worked, not how well they’ve mastered the material. When they don’t receive the grades they think they deserve, many take the matter up with the graders.

Syria: The shaping of a nation, then and now In the early 20th century, Syria was part of a region redrawn by outside forces. Today the 3-year-old uprising against the government of President Bashar al-Assad is generating the outlines of zones of control that could result in the partitioning of the country. The modern map of the Middle East was created by Europeans less than a century ago. Today, the conflict in Syria is calling into question the viability of those borders, which were frequently drawn with little regard for local communities.
