stem leaders of the future, unite!

“Most of us can agree that science is important to help influence our leaders to make informed decisions, yet there is a strange absence of department heads and cabinet appointees within the current administration who have a background or degree in the sciences.” In a culture that’s increasingly skeptical about the merits of science, STEM education is more essential than ever. For this reason, I am honored to present you with the spring edition of Innovation & Tech Today, featuring Genius Junior host and STEM advocate Neil Patrick Harris. But this landmark issue doesn’t stop there, as it also includes a business-focused interview with R&B star Ray J, an insightful discussion on sustainability with actress AnnaSophia Robb, and an in-depth look at the world of comic book creation. While this is…

Jurassic Park: The Prequel In the film Jurassic Park, dinosaurs are revived from mosquitoes trapped in amber, eventually breaking free and causing massive destruction. Since the movie’s release, critics have been quick to point out that this could never happen in real life. Well, we may be on our way to a Jurassic situation as scientists have discovered bugs trapped in amber that drank dinosaur blood, which may very well lead to reviving dinosaurs that will escape and eat many people. Trapped in amber for 99 million years, newly discovered ticks (which were named Deinocroton draculi by scientists) were discovered in part by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Interestingly, this is the very first discovery that dinosaurs had their blood sucked by ticks. The discovery was even named a “paleontologist’s dream”…

the investor’s guide to equal pay

Amazon. Google. Intel. Natasha Lamb has taken them all on. Her goal? Close the gender pay gap.

And her work has not gone unnoticed, as she was considered one of Bloomberg’s “Most Influential People of 2017.” Innovation & Tech Today : How do you go about convincing companies that disclosing and reducing their gender pay gap…

holiday heroes

Not all heroes wear masks and capes. In the case of Holiday Heroes, though, sometimes the party requires it. Holiday Heroes is a Chicago-based nonprofit that works to bring smiles to the faces of ill children. They’ve partnered with hospitals, businesses, and celebrities to help patients escape from their typical days of being treated for critical and chronic illnesses. Their events range from parties with superheroes and visits from celebrities to more hands-on events, such as holiday parties, arts and crafts events, and other fun activities. They attribute at least part of their success to having brought technology into the forefront of their fundraising strategy. Traditional fundraising methods like direct mail campaigns and placing calls to past donors have big overhead costs and long turnaround times between initial contact and donations…
