Too Many Interruptions at Work?

It's discouraging to put in a busy 10-hour day, yet feel that you haven't accomplished anything. From constant e-mails and phone calls to coworkers with quick questions that take all morning, it sometimes seems like the single most prominent part of work is interruption. Well, you're right, probably more so than you realize. Gloria Mark, Ph.D., associate professor at the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, a Calit2 academic affiliate and a leading expert on work, researched workplace interruptions and came to a fascinating conclusion: We don't have work days -- we have work minutes that last all day.

Converting Light Wavelengths within Fiber

Fiber-optic networks zip billions of bits of information across the world every day, using light with a wavelength of 1,550 nanometers, which is well suited for snaking through kilometers of glassy fiber. And, because telecommunications uses this wavelength, many important devices, such as light sources, amplifiers, switches, and light detectors, are fine-tuned for that wavelength. The research group, led by Stojan Radic, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of California in San Diego (UCSD), showed that wavelengths of light between 1,541 and 1,560 nanometers could be used to generate visible green light with wavelengths between 515 and 585 nanometers -- all within the confines of an optical fiber. Their results were presented last month at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference in Anaheim, CA.

"UCSD is home to a number of sophisticated resources that carry out computational or statistical analysis and other kinds of quantitative research. We just need to bring our varied and dispersed talents together," he said. "For example, UCSD recently launched the Information Theory and Applications Center, based at Calit2. Its faculty members are developing methodologies to understand how signals can be received and sent using wireless technologies, and are using sophisticated computational techniques to decipher the signals. Those people have extensive math and statistical skills that, if applied to a problem in, for example, medical imaging or genomics could result in major advances to the field."

You Call Yourself a Manager? Well, You're Not Alone

Managers now make up 10 percent of the U.S. IT workforce, up from less than 7 percent in 2000, and manager jobs outnumber those in categories such as IT support specialist and network or data-communications administrator. Business-process outsourcing of functions such as human resources and accounting may actually increase IT-management payrolls, since some companies assign an IT manager to help administer these types of outsourced services, according to Ken Kraemer, UC Irvine information sciences professor and Calit2 academic affiliate.

FBI Checking Prints in Death Row Cases

The FBI is reviewing the cases of all state and federal prisoners scheduled for execution to determine whether bureau fingerprint examiners made errors that led to death sentences. The move comes amid increased attention to fingerprint analysis. Fingerprints, long thought to be unique to individuals, have been used in U.S. courts since the early 1900s. But critics such as Simon Cole, a professor of criminology at the University of California, Irvine, say fingerprinting is not backed by sufficient scientific research.
