Missouri University of Science and Technology gets $300M

Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla announced Monday it has received a gift of $300 million — which it says is the largest single donation to any college in the state.

The gift is from St. Louis businessman Fred Kummer and his wife, June, who are alumni of the school and longtime donors.

The money will start a foundation to support Missouri S&T, establish the Kummer Institute for Student Success, Research and Economic Development, as well as a new school of innovation and entrepreneurship. It also will develop new areas for research, provide numerous scholarships, and fellowships for high-achieving students, university officials said.

Some of the money will go toward expansion, renovation and construction of campus buildings. A new lecture series is to be established, and a shuttle service between S&T and St. Louis is planned to bring students from that metropolitan area to the campus.

Building Strategies To Unlock Growth, Inclusion And Prosperity For Women In Technology

Co-Founder of Women in Cloud. I influence brands and entrepreneurs to unlock economic access through digital strategy and partnerships.

It’s been shown that diverse teams, including those with greater gender diversity, are on average more creative and innovative, and ultimately, they are associated with greater profitability. However, as McKinsey & Company notes, “despite the growing number of voices pushing for gender equality across the United States, and many tech companies stating that diversity is a priority, we are not yet seeing concrete gains in the tech industry.”

Women-led technology businesses face significant barriers when it comes to economic access. In 2018, female technology founders brought in just 2.2% of U.S. venture capital dollars.

While women in the technology sector were behind in the race for economic opportunities before the Covid-19 outbreak, the recent pandemic-related restrictions have had devastating economic and emotional impacts, pushing them even further to the

At least three children have been hospitalized after their fingers were injured by a Muller fan, with one losing a finger to the fan’s blades.

The father of one three-year-old boy related how, in a busy moment just before the Sukkot festival, his son stuck his fingers between the metal mesh of the finger guard. The whirling metal blades literally sliced off his son’s finger. Then, in hospital, he met the parents of other children who had suffered similar injuries.

“This fan has stainless-steel blades and the product insert says that the mesh is especially dense for ‘maximum safety,’” one father related. “My son had to be taken to Tel Hashomer hospital and underwent an operation to reattach his finger. We found two other families there with children with injuries from Muller fans. One little boy suffered a deep cut and had

Amazon’s New Hand Payment Technology Could Change In-Store Shopping Forever

New Amazon technology, introduced at two Amazon Go stores this week, lets shoppers pay for purchases by holding their hands over a scanner. The system, called Amazon One, may herald a new way of identifying yourself and paying for things that could change the way people shop, enter concerts, use public transportation, and many other things.

You’ve probably used a fingerprint scanner or facial recognition to unlock your smartphone. You already know that your voice and your retinas can be used to positively identify you and give you access to your various devices, and possibly to secure government or corporate facilities. Amazon’s new Amazon One technology takes biometrics a step further by allowing shoppers to pay for purchases with a simple scan of their palms.

To stave off privacy concerns, the company says it is encrypting biometric data before storing it in the cloud, and that the data will be

on big promises made by its then-executive chairman and the enthusiasm of small investors.

Now, with the executive chairman gone and shares of the electric truck maker down about 80% from their peak, the company must rely on the strength of its business model. That model attracted auto sector luminaries, big-name investors and industry giants. But it depends on delivering big technological advances and dramatic cost reductions.

Founded in 2015 by Trevor Milton, the company is one of several startups competing to find ways to accelerate the move to clean energy in the auto industry. Nikola has specifically targeted trucks, which have been more challenging because of the weight of batteries needed to power them. While Nikola plans to use batteries at first, Mr. Milton focused on the potential of hydrogen as a source of non-fossil-fuel energy
