the science of things

“The need for thoughtful understanding is a required standard for posterity, especially in terms of infrastructure, health, and humanity.” To quote our publisher, Charles Warner, “If your politics get in the way of science and facts, well, that’s your problem.” The pursuit of truth is the clearest endeavor of science. What is out there? What is it made of, and will we be there one day to touch it? As we move on from the election and reorder our priorities for 2021, I hope we all remember, and especially our incumbent governments and corporations, to consider the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics of every policy decision in the new year. There should be no law created, factory-built, or roadway paved until the science behind every decision is not only understood but obeyed. Should…

THE MORE THINGS CHANGE; THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME. New President, new tech, new gaming content, same old COVID-19. At the end of the summer, Dr. Anthony Fauci predicted a second wave of the virus was inevitable. In fact, The Washington Post reported in late October the U.S. hit an all-time high in new coronavirus cases, exceeding 80,000 in a day for the first time. While the pandemic remains an underlying narrative to everything we do, the surge in responsive technologies during the crisis is a testament to the human spirit to adapt and overcome. In the future, there will be other pandemics, maybe even other bouts with dreaded COVID-19, but we will not stop working, playing, or getting on with the business of living. We will persevere. Remote work and education…

by the numbers

Since 2017, there has been a steady growth in online school attendance for students enrolled in post-secondary institutions. Each year, the spike in online platforms influences the market’s academic and employment strategies. Before the COVID-19 pandemic placed an even greater emphasis on innovating effective, distance technologies, two-year colleges and traditional brick-and-mortar universities were already expanding their curriculums to include virtual options. At their best, universities should not only prepare working professionals for the contemporary market, they should also resemble it in every function. As employees transition to online business for the long haul, so too, are educational institutions around the world.…

the virtual season

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues and in-person events are being shelved into next year, the birth of the virtual venue has quickly become a growing commodity. Not only to stave off further infections, the online event has also become an effective cost-cutting tool for companies around the world. No more travel costs. No more logistical nightmares. The headache of travel and the financial limitations on businesses and their executives may soon become a thing of the past. Some of last quarter’s most prominent virtual events included: CEDIA Expo This premier trade event spearheaded one of the industry’s first completely virtual trade shows for the custom integration and design communities. The event took place Sept. 15-17 and saw 7,600 trade professionals come together to connect and discuss topics facing the industry this year and next. There…

The Ice Melter The more scientists learn about Antarctica, the grimmer the predictions. Data compiled by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research shows sea levels around the world will rise about two and a half meters as the Antarctic ice sheet continues to melt. Although scientists expect the sheet of ice to be around for a few more centuries, there is an expiration date now as the global average temperature continues to rise. Researchers concluded that melting will likely take place over a long period but may be irreversible because of the way the ice cap is expected to melt. While the ice sheet has looked relatively the same for the last 34 million years, scientists from the Potsdam Institute say its future form will be decided within our lifetime. The Plastic Pig By…

astronaut cady coleman on spacesuits, stem, and inclusive education

The National Science Foundation reports 80% of jobs available in the coming years will require math and science skills. Despite this need, estimates say less than a third of high school graduates test ready for higher education in science, and less than half are considered prepared for college-level math courses. Unequal access and outcomes compound this shortfall. A 2013 report by the U.S. Census Bureau found that although women make up nearly half of the American workforce, they represent only 26% of STEM workers. Similarly, African Americans account for only 6% and Hispanics for only 7% of professionals employed in STEM-related jobs. I recently hosted an online fireside chat with retired astronaut and Dent board member Dr. Cady Coleman, who has dedicated her time and experience to help draw women and minorities…
