COLOMBIA, tierra de luz (land of light) consists of a series of symbolic acts of support for victims of violence and displacement in different parts of Colombia, through the media of photography and art. It is a voice that confronts the silence surrounding those who have been affected and marginalized by the armed conflict for more than half a century.
Sponsored/led by DUSP/EPP Energy Efficiency Strategy Project, with support from:
· NStar Electric and Gas – Efficiency program

MIT Water Night will showcase around 40 posters on water-related topics. This is a great opportunity to network with MIT students and faculty in water-related field, as well as professionals from water industry. Furthermore, 2013 is the International Year of Water Cooperation and March 22nd is World Water Day. You will learn more about “water cooperation and World Water Day” at the event.
Excess journey time (EJT), the difference between actual passenger journey times and journey times implied by the published timetable, strikes a useful balance between the passenger's and operator's perspectives of public transport service quality. Using smartcard data, this paper tried to characterize transit service quality with EJT under heterogeneous incidence behavior (arrival at boarding stations). A rigorous framework was established for analyzing EJT, in particular for reasoning about passenger’ journey time standards as implied by varying incidence behavior.
Application of Intellignet Transportation System (ITS) to improve public transit operation, planning and management.

Better Jobs, Pay and Work Lives for Women: A Policy Agenda
The US Dept of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge is an effort to reduce the energy use of commercial buildings by 20% by 2020 by catalyzing private-sector investment and innovation. DOE and its “Challenge Partners” are developing replicable solutions to the barriers faced by building owners as they adopt energy efficient practices in their commercial building stocks.
We are building geo-spatial technologies, that enable students to explore their city with the purpose of collecting data they bring back to the formal classroom and use as part of their mathematics lessons. This place-based orientation helps students connect their everyday and school mathematical thinking. Researchers are investigating the impact of place-based learning on students' attitudes, beliefs, and self-concepts about mathematics in urban schools.This project is done in partnership with Brooklyn College and the Center for Urban Pedagogy
In partnership with University of Nairobi and Groupshot and Columbia University's Center for Sustainable Urban Development MIT’s Civic Data and Design Project is working toward standardizing and opening transit data for Nairobi’s Matatus — the informal and de facto city bus system. Building on past Kenyan-based digital mapping efforts and open source transit software, the group will produce a comprehensive framework for collecting, opening and mapping Matatu transportation data toward a mobile and equitable Nairobi.
