    Hotel Rwanda tackles one of the most dreadfully ugly events in recent history. I believe that this conflict in the 90’s marked one of the bloodiest chapters in African History. Based on a true story, director Terry George’s war-time drama is set in Rwanda’s capital city of Kigah during 1994 civil genocide. Rwanda erupted with genocidal rage after the country’s Hutu president was assassinated. The Hutus blamed the murder on the hated Tutsi minority and took up firearms and murdered many of their Tutsi neighbors. The political situation was about to explode. Two ethnic groups, the Tutsis and the Hutus had been turned against each other by the white Belgian settlers, who literally measured skin tone and nose width to elevate the Tutsis to preferred positions. In a few months, more than one million Tutsi men, women and children were harshly murdered while United Nations peacekeepers stood by, powerless to step in and help them. When the Hutu (the largest of the three ethnic groups in Rwanda) majority starts massacring the Tutsi (one of three native peoples of the nations in Rwanda) population, Paul Rusesabagina played by Don Cheadle, the Hutu manager of a luxury hotel goes out of his way to save the Tutsi people because his wife is one of them. Rusesabagina is a Hutus and a very successful businessman who makes powerful connections throughout the movie to protect the lives of his loved ones. His position enables him to meet wealthy and powerful people, such as General Bizimungu who later became notorious in leading the genocide of Tutsis. It was arduous for Paul Rusesabagina to help the Tutsi that were being harassed and beaten frequently because the Americans and European governments quickly removed their own people, leaving the threatened Tutsis to fend for themselves. Paul provided shelter for these people in his hotel and did what it took for him to keep them protected from the chaos that was going on outside the hotel’s…

These collaborative tools initially found favour among groups that were jointly creating complex documents such as standards and manuals. However, as the technology has evolved, and the ease of use of the wiki sites increased, they have started to be used to retain best practice in a form that allows it to be annotated by others. For example, engineers in one manufacturing company are using a wiki to store and share knowledge about the operation and maintenance of conveyor belts. In another example, an oil company is using the knowledge of experienced operators to build a wiki on the subject of bitumen production. Bitumen production is a tricky process, which requires considerable operator experience. This latter wiki is being updated from the results of learning interviews.…

    Cave Story is a freeware platform-adventure video game released in 2004 for the PC. It was developed over five years by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya (pictured) in his free time. Cave Story features 2D platform mechanics and pays homage to the classic games that the author played in his youth, such as Metroid. The game focuses on an amnesiac protagonist who awakens in a cave. Through his explorations, he discovers a plot by the Doctor, a megalomaniac who intends to force the inhabitants of the cave to fight for him in his bid to conquer the world. The protagonist is thrust into the position of savior as he endeavours to defeat the Doctor. After its initial self-published release, Cave Story slowly gained popularity on the Internet. It received wide critical acclaim for its compelling story and gameplay. Independent developer Nicalis worked with Amaya to port the game to WiiWare and DSiWare in 2010. An enhanced version, Cave Story+, was released for Steam in November 2011, with a Nintendo 3DS release in October 2012. A 3D remake of the game, titled Cave Story 3D, was developed by Nicalis and published by NIS America for the Nintendo 3DS in November 2011. (Full article...)…

    Abstract This paper provides empirical evidence on the relationship between trading volumes, volatility and bid-ask spreads in foreign exchange markets. It uses a new data set that includes daily data on trading volumes for the dollar exchange rates of seven currencies from emerging market countries. The sample period is 1 January 1998 to 30 June 1999. The results are broadly consistent with the findings of the literature that used futures volumes as proxies for total foreign exchange trading. I find that in most cases unexpected trading volumes and volatility are positively correlated, suggesting that both are driven by the arrival of public information, as predicted by the mixture of distributions hypothesis. I also find that the correlation…
