Today The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease published results from the first study of LSD's therapeutic potential in humans to appear in more than four decades. The controlled, double-blind study, which was conducted in Switzerland under the direction of Swiss psychiatrist Peter Gasser, measured the impact of LSD-assisted psychotherapy on 12 people with life-threatening diseases (mainly terminal cancer). "The study was a success in the sense that we did not have any noteworthy adverse effects," Gasser says. "All participants reported a personal benefit from the treatment, and the effects were stable over time."

Distributed Optimization over Random Networks Ilan Lobel and Asu Ozdaglar Allerton Conference September 2008 Operations Research Center and Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA MIT Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems 1 Motivation • Increasing interest in distributed control and coordination of networks consisting of multiple autonomous agents • Motivated by many emerging networking applications, such as ad hoc wireless communication networks and sensor networks, characterized by: – Lack of centralized control and access to information – Randomly varying connectivity • Control algorithms for such networks should be: – Completely distributed relying on local information – Robust against changes in the network topology MIT Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems 2 Multi-Agent Optimization Problem Goal: Develop a general computational model for cooperatively optimizing a global system objective through local interactions and computations in a multi-agent system with randomly varying connectivity • Global objective is a combination of individual agent performance measures...
SURVEY OF RESERVE MANAGERS: LESSONS FROM THE CRISIS Aideen Morahan and Christian Mulder © 201 International Monetary Fund WP/ IMF Working Paper Monetary and Capital Markets Department SURVEY OF RESERVE MANAGERS: LESSONS FROM THE CRISIS Prepared by Aideen Morahan and Christian Mulder1 Authorized for distribution by Ghiath Shabsigh May 2013 This Working Paper should not be reported as representing the views of the IMF. The views expressed in this Working Paper are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent those of the IMF or IMF policy. Working Papers describe research in progress by the author(s) and are published to elicit comments and to further debate. Abstract This paper reports in detail on a survey that was circulated to reserve managing central banks of IMF member countries in April 2012. The survey aims to gain further insight into how reserve managers have reacted to the crisis to date. The survey also aims to understand how reserve managers arrive at their strategic asset allocation and how they operate their risk management frameworks in practice. Some of the key themes that emerge from the survey include potential procyclical and counter cyclical behavior by reserve managers, increased focus placed on returns and wide variability across countries in how the currency composition of reserves is derived.

THE EUROPEAN CRISIS MANAGEMENT LABORATORY CRISIS TOOLS & METHODS Researching ICT Technologies to support Crisis Room functionalities • Benchmarking software tools • Testing in-house software • Situation Awareness, Early Warning, Command and Control Training and Capacity Building Activities • Specific training: best use of Crisis Room Technologies • GIS Systems and Crisis Rooms • Tsunami Decision Support Systems for Early Warning Centres Backup for European Commission Crisis Rooms • Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC) of the Community Humanitarian Office (DG ECHO) • Directorate General for Home Affairs (DG-HOME) Crisis Room Design • JRC Crisis Room • Haiti Civil Protection • DG-ECHO Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC) www.jrc.ec.europa.eu The European Crisis Management Laboratory acts as a research, development and test facility for ICT focused solutions which integrates devices, systems, models and relevant information sources to support crisis management needs, such as threats analysis, situational awareness, early warning, reponse and coordination, and collaborative decision making. The Laboratory allows distributed crisis management training across relevant services of the European Commission, as well as with partners in the EU Member States and others engaged in crisis management, thereby enhancing their awareness and confidence in the application of technological solutions to strengthen their functions in crisis management.
Lord Monckton, UK -- Christopher, Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, was Special Advisor to Margaret Thatcher as UK Prime Minister from 1982 to 1986, and gave policy advice on technical issues such as warship hydrodynamics (his work led to his appointment as the youngest Trustee of the Hales Trophy for the Blue Riband of the Atlantic), psephological modeling (predicting the result of the 1983 General Election to within one seat), embryological research, hydrogeology (leading to the award of major financial assistance to a Commonwealth country for the construction of a very successful hydroelectric scheme), public-service investment analysis (leading to savings of tens of billions of pounds), public welfare modeling (his model of the UK tax and benefit system was, at the time, more detailed than the Treasury's economic model, and led to a major simplification of the housing benefit system), and epidemiological analysis. On leaving 10 Downing Street, he established a successful specialist consultancy company, giving technical advice to corporations and governments. His two articles in the Sunday Telegraph late in 2006 debunking the climate-change "consensus" received more hits to the

The financial crisis of late 2008 and the global recession which has followed is a topic of great interest to researchers, businesspeople, policymakers and the public. This bibliography is an introductory guide to some of the material available to researchers via the British Library’s print, sound and electronic resources. It also provides links to important UK-based research centres, collections and archives, plus useful websites, portals and other bibliographies. It covers resources for studying the causes of the current crisis, the events as they unfolded, and the impact on people, industry, trade and jobs. One of the most interesting aspects is how similar the current crisis is to previous events such as the South Sea Bubble, the Baring Crisis of 1890, and the Wall Street Crash of 1929. The recession is international, and so we have included sources of international statistics and information. However, the main focus of this bibliography is on the situation in the United Kingdom. It has been written by Sally Halper, Lead Content Specialist – Business & Management at the British Library. Comments or suggestions about the bibliography or the Library’s collections are welcome, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org All book cover images are reproduced under licence from Bowker Syndetics.
