You are cordially invited to celebrate the marriage of Ms. Polly Peachum, the flower of Soho and only daughter of the notorious King of the Beggars, to Captain Macheath, a.k.a. Mack the Knife, the most wanted man in London. Entertainment for the evening shall include a variety of bawdy songs, shameful caterwauling, trilling sopranos, moving ballads, earnest pleas, rousing escapes, unexpected twists, saucy brothels, dirty jokes and at least one public hanging.
Innovation is a buzzword with remarkable contemporary currency, one frequently instrumentalized in the constant search for new technologies, means of production, market adaptations, scientiﬁc discoveries and social changes. With its more insidious applications in mind, a number of recent academic discussions – from visual culture studies and the global art history to the history of science and media archaeology – have come to treat the paradigm with caution, even scepticism.
Isolated attempts to curb the growing obesity pandemic are doomed to fail to reach their potential, according to recent research from the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University.
It seems that a number of people want to be scientists, or at least in the sense of ostensibly adding credibility to their respective field of work.

On March 21st, the McGill HEC Montreal EMBA program organised an event to celebrate its 5th anniversary. Participants from five alumni classes and the current class joined together for the first time as one group and discussed with an energy and openness you’d expect from people who have known each other for years. The EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal was the common thread and common language which made that possible. Fully 60% of the alumni took part in the day’s activities, confirming the strong link they feel to the program and the network it has created.
