in that they can be easily transformed to other kinds of energy sources that can serve a particular useful purpose. This difference vis a vis energy in natural sciences can lead to some confusion, because energy resources are not conserved in nature in the same way as energy is conserved in the context of physics. The actual energy content is always conserved, but when it is converted into heat for example, it usually becomes less useful to society, and thus appears to have been used up . Energy consumption in kilograms of oil equivalent (kgoe) per person per year per country (2001 data). Darker tones indicate larger consumption ...

Schools have usually been slower than businesses in adopting computer use. However, personal computers are becoming commonplace in the school environment (Picciano, 1994). Individual computers have been visible in classrooms and on school secretary's desk for some time.

Failing to Keep Up With the Information Revolution — Central ...
During 2001-2002, I was a Scholar-in-Residence at the Sherman Kent Center for Intelligence Analysis, the “think tank” attached to the CIA’s training center for analysts.  The CIA has long used such scholars as expert analysts, but the Kent Cen­ter wanted to try something new:  using an outside scholar to study the process of analysis itself.  In particular, I was charged with look­ing at how the Directorate of Intelligence (DI) uses information technology (IT), and how it might use this technology more effectively. My approach was to watch as many DI analysts as practical and ask them how they performed their ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Surviving Email Overload
Employees now spend over 40 percent of their workday on e-mail--and consider more than a third of that time a waste, according to a new survey from Cohesive Knowledge Solutions (CKS). What's more, companies are bleeding big bucks--some $300 billion a year--in lost productivity and profits. The good news? You're neither hopeless--nor helpless.

We recommend four low-tech, high-impact strategies: > Get fewer e-mails. The best way to get less is to send less. How? Cut the ...
Managing a Business: technology management, dramatic innovations ...
When we look back at the 1990s, from the perspective of say 2008, the nature of the forces currently in train will have presumably become clearer. We may conceivably conclude from that vantage point that, at the turn of the millennium, the WORLD  economy was experiencing a once-in-a-century acceleration of innovation, which propelled forward productivity, output, corporate profits, and stock prices at a pace not seen in generations, if ever. .
