Cranfield School of Management

History: Management has been part of Cranfield University since the Fifties. Founded on an old RAF site as the first postgraduate college of aeronautics, when it decided its students needed management training. It grew out of industrial need, not ivory towers.

Professor Donna Lamping

Upon graduating with a doctorate in psychology from Harvard in the early 1980s, Donna Lamping, who died on 8 June, made great efforts to convince sceptical doctors of the need to take into account not only the duration of life when evaluating the efficiency of care and chemotherapy, but also pain and the quality of life. At this time, Donna had no idea that 30 years later she herself would be faced with this issue. When Donna developed questionnaires to obtain a measure of pain and discomfort by patients, she did not know that she would one day find herself in the waiting room of a prominent doctor where she would fill out one of said documents as a patient.

And Noel Meade, for one, surely deserves to be taken at his word, after working Pandorama at Leopardstown yesterday morning.

Professor Christopher Freeman: Influential economist whose radical

The economist and science policy adviser Chris Freeman was one of the most original and influential economists of the late 20th century who combined the radical political outlook that inspired him (he refused government honours) with advising unashamedly pro-capitalist governments on technological policy.

Bigger than Beck's: Jon Stewart's rally eclipses Fox News pundit's

There were an estimated 215,000 different interpretations of what just happened. As the throngs who attended Saturday's enormous "Rally to Restore Sanity" dispersed, there was no agreement on whether it had been a powerful answer to the Tea Party rallies that upturned politics last year, a popular uprising against the media, or just a hilarious free show by two of the hottest comedians in America.
