By comparison, we know far less about how computing and new media shaped (and were shaped by) the historical and cultural experiences of Asia, Africa, the former Soviet Union, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Moreover, only very recently has scholarship on computing and new media begun to engage meaningfully with questions of gender, culture, language, ethnicity, and class.
Writing about the Philip Johnson Glass House recently, I was reminded of another famous little art house — Brooklyn-based artist Tom Fruin’s “Kolonihavehus.” But take note: this house is not made of glass.

Year-to-date through July, over 0 billion of merger-and-acquisition (M&A) activity has been announced in the U. Should acquiring-company shareholders expect to benefit? In this study we show that, among Russell 3000 firms with acquisitions greater than 5% of acquirer enterprise value, post-M&A acquirer returns have underperformed peers in general.
A number of deal-related and fundamental attributes can be used to separate the ‘good’ from the ‘bad’ (and, sometimes, the really ugly). Introduction The academic literature on M&A is vast but comes to few definitive conclusions.
Although nearly all studies agree that M&A creates value for target-company shareholders, studies on post-M&A results for acquirers have no such unanimity.
