Take an econometrics course

Environmental Economics

We just added an additional quantitative course to our majors. When students start complaining I'll point them here: The knock that liberal-arts graduates can have a tough time landing a first job is borne out by the data. Yet a new analysis of help-wanted postings for entry-level jobs suggests that those graduates can improve their job prospects markedly by acquiring a small level of proficiency in one of eight specific skill sets, such as social media or data analysis.

Broome Golf Course birding

10,000 Birds

Last week I introduced you to the new bird-watching hut at the Broome Poo Ponds and now I will let you know it is not just about the ponds, but the adjoining Broome Golf Course! The water that is recycled from the Broome Poo Ponds goes towards keeping the Broome Golf Course nice and green year round and not only is this an ideal situation for the people that play golf, but it is also ideal for numerous species of birds. Golf Course birds!

A demand / consumer surplus experiment for your lower level environmental economics course

Environmental Economics

I used VEconLab's demand experiment in my sophomore level introduction to environmental and resource economics course this week: This exercise introduces the notion of demand as a function with "steps" that represent maximum willingness to pay, i.e. the marginal value of consumption. I used it to illustrate demand curves (the course has no prequisite) and consumer surplus.

Friday beer post: all in moderation, of course

Environmental Economics

How this accidental discovery evolved into the first keg party, of course, is still unknown. My favorite archeologists have determined that: We needed beer. Luckily, from time to time, our ancestors, like other animals, would run across fermented fruit or grain and sample it. But evolve it did, perhaps as early as 10,000 years ago. Maybe they got the idea after watching Animal House? Current theory has it that grain was first domesticated for food.

Forget Golf Courses: Subdivisions Draw Residents With Farms

Green (Living) Review

When you picture a housing development in the suburbs, you might imagine golf courses, swimming pools, rows of identical houses. "Golf courses cost millions to build and maintain, and we''re kind of overbuilt on golf courses already," he says. But now, there''s a new model springing up across the country that taps into the local food movement: Farms — complete with livestock, vegetables and fruit trees — are serving as the latest suburban amenity.

"Professor Leaves a MOOC in Mid-Course in Dispute Over Teaching"

Environmental Economics

The professor is a past-president of the Southern Economics Association (here is his vita ): Students regularly drop out of massive open online courses before they come to term. McKenzie, an emeritus professor of enterprise and society at the university’s business school, sent a note to his students announcing that he would no longer be teaching the course, which was about to enter its fifth week. Mr. McKenzie’s microeconomics course, however, will continue—just without him.

Carving a New Course in River Science

Conservancy Talk

But some begin to carve a course into the hillside, capturing other rivulets that work together to erode deeper and deeper channels, ultimately changing the topography of the hillslope. Science doesn’t advance as a unidirectional monolith, like a glacier carving a valley. Rather, it’s more like thousands of tiny rivulets wending their way through the leaf litter and grasses at the top of a hillside.
