They iterate and test ideas quickly so that when failure happens, it happens fast, and they can refine and try again.We asked the daters what they’ve learned from failure: Innovators look outward.In each round, innovation leaders were seated at tables in pairs for their “dates.” Summit attendees got to be voyeurs, listening in on the conversations of their choice to learn how they could bring innovation to their cities.Here are some highlights: Innovators do not start with solutions.The Weill Cornell Medical College Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC), headed by Julianne Imperato-Mc Ginley, took a novel approach to overcoming the challenge of forming scientific relationships: We organized a "speed networking" event that brought together researchers from CTSC's institutions--Weill Cornell Medical College, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Hospital for Special Surgery, Hunter College, and Cornell University--and from three New York-area community hospitals.Our so-called Translational Research Bazaar, which took place in October, used a format popularized by speed dating: Two groups of people--in this case, basic scientists and clinical/translational researchers--sit on opposite sides of a table and chat for a few minutes until a bell rings, signaling that it's time to move on and strike up a new conversation.This process continues until everyone in one group has met everyone in the other group.The goal, for translational research as for dating, is to find a match.
Word has gotten out: Other institutions and organizations have contacted us hoping to learn how to run their own events.
JSU offers a scenic 125-acre campus with tree-lined walkways and a plaza in the heart of Jackson - five minutes from downtown.
Students enjoy a rich academic and social life enhanced by the vibrant atmosphere of an urban university in a capital city.
Based on these factors, Jackson topped the list with 153 wind events since January 2006 and a max wind speed of 99 mph giving it a Core Logic ranking of 95.
Springfield, Mo., was second on the list with 128 wind events and a max wind speed of 97 mph, followed by Boston with 121 wind events. 4 with 116 wind events, and Shreveport, La., was No. According to the catastrophe modeling firm, Chicago, which is well known by its nickname “The Windy City,” actually came in at No. Below is a complete list of the top 10 windiest cities between January 2006 and June 2015, according to Core Logic.
