Admissions officials at Dartmouth University's Tuck School of Business are seeking candidates who "have a habit of niceness," says Luke Anthony Pena, executive director of admissions and financial aid at Tuck. Applicants are asked to answer an essay question outlining how they have helped others to succeed, and include references who can vouch for their niceness.
Salary packages for graduates from the top six Indian Institutes of Management in the past hiring season were an average of 121% higher than the overall average for graduates from all schools in the country, a recent survey finds. The data also show the most lucrative fields for IIM graduates were in technology, marketing and consulting.
A Global Executive MBA degree in Pharmaceutical Management has been launched through a partnership between Ahmedabad University and the Rady School of Management at the University of California at San Diego. The program is designed to teach business skills to professionals working in pharmaceutical and allied industries.
A 76 million-year-old spiked dinosaur skull found in Utah belongs to a new species of ankylosaur, according to findings published online by PeerJ. The herbivore is likely descended from dinosaurs that came to North America from Asia at a time of low sea levels, researchers say.
HaloSat has begun its mission to map the gas encircling the Milky Way, and it may help find matter that scientists say is missing from the universe. The tiny satellite will measure X-rays produced by the extremely hot gas to determine the shape of the galaxy's halo, which could indicate whether it is hiding any of the missing matter.
Many creatures that inhabit endangered shallow reefs likely won't find refuge in deep-water, or mesophotic, reefs because they would have difficulty adapting to the colder, darker conditions, according to findings published in Science. Researchers say that mesophotic reefs also face similar ecological threats as shallow ones.
Scientists have created six detailed images of Saturn's moon Titan from data the Cassini space probe obtained over 13 years. "[T]his new collection of images is by far the best representation of how the globe of Titan might appear to the casual observer if it weren't for the moon's hazy atmosphere, and it likely will not be superseded for some time to come," NASA officials said.
The slowing of the Gulf Stream could lead to higher temperatures around the world, according to a study published in Nature. Researchers examined the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation over the past seven decades and noted patterns that suggest Earth could be experiencing a similar warming period as it did from 1975 to 1998.
Scientists at the New York Stem Cell Foundation Research Institute have developed a process called Segmental Additive Tissue Engineering, in which personalized bone grafts are engineered from stem cells, and CEO Susan Solomon says the technique may eventually be used to heal bone injuries caused by osteoporosis, osteonecrosis, cancer, trauma and other conditions. Martina Sladkova, first author of a paper on the technique published in Scientific Reports, says small segments of bone are engineered and combined to create grafts of different sizes and shapes.
