Times Higher Education - News in Brief
Higher education employers have upped their pay offer for next year from 0.25 per cent to 0.4 per cent. The Universities and Colleges Employers Association met with the five higher education unions on 5 May, but there was no agreement on a deal.

The two sides have scheduled an additional meeting for 28 May, after using up the three originally scheduled under the Joint Negotiating ... market research, surveys and trends
With nearly all global organisations using Open Source software today, the industry faces a challenge of properly understanding the development, contribution, and communities instrumental to creating an enterprise-grade Open Source policy and ensuring its successful adoption. At the same time with increasing pressure from funding bodies and institutions to show an increased impact from research activities the sector faces a challenge of matching impact with research objectives. Impact is interpreted in so many ways it can be difficult to understand just what is expected of modern research projects. The use of open source ... market research, surveys and trends

How the Gulf Oil Cleanup Went Wrong
DIFFICULTY IN CLEANUP: Oil cleanup workers try to capture globs of oil that were washing ashore from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on July 1, 2010 in Gulfport, Mississippi. Oil cleanup has been unsuccessful with lack of foreign help, long delays, and poor equipment. (Joe Raedle/Getty Images) “Making it Right,” has been BP’s $50 million advertising slogan in trying to sell America that all will be well and restored in the Gulf one day, just not this year and probably not next year. In the spirit of reassurance, the EPA launched a new website , as if the virtual ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Checking for Programming Cheaters?
I teach programming - primarily Visual Basic (.net now) and another instructor teaches primarily Java. We're interested in (probably purchasing) a program that will look at our student programs and see if they're cheating. By cheating, I mean programs that are too similar to each other. This often happens when one student "shares" a program with other students, who then do a "search/replace" and change variable names... move some code around... perhaps change some comments, and then turn the work in as their own. I would like a program that would work with both Visual Basic and Java (C++ would be nice ...
