Mark Madsen of WattIQ: “Learn to be comfortable with uncertainty”

Learn to be comfortable with uncertainty. It is alright to not know the answer or know what will happen next. Much of the stress we experience comes from worrying about things that haven’t happened yet, and the life of an entrepreneur is filled with enough uncertainty that it will harm you if you can’t let it go.

Focus on digital humanities: Initiatives bring technology to diverse disciplines

When you think of medieval literature, you might think of crackling sheets of parchment with the blood-black handwriting of scribes, interspersed with brightly colored drawings. You probably don’t think about software or coding. But technological tools and computational methods are playing an increasing role in the analysis, teaching, and preservation...

Observing Oxidation at the Atomic Level with Guangwen Zhou

For more than 100 years, scientists have studied chemical reactions in which elements combine with oxygen to form oxides. Traditionally, studies on oxides relied on ex situ characterization, which captures changes after a reaction has occurred. But today, instruments capable of monitoring dynamic processes as they happen in real time and under reaction conditions are providing new insights into oxidation at the atomic scale. Several of these in situ and operando instruments exist at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Since 2010, Guangwen Zhou—a professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department, interim director of the Materials Science and Engineering Program, associator director for the Institute for Materials Research, and principal investigator of the Surface and Interface Laboratory at Binghamton University, State University of New York (SUNY)—has been performing in situ and operando microscopy and spectroscopy in the CFN Electron Microscopy, Proximal Probes, and Theory and Computation Facilities to understand the fundamental mechanisms of oxidation. Prior to joining Binghamton faculty in 2007, Zhou was a research assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh, postdoctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory, and research associate at Beijing Laboratory of Electron Microscopy at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He received a PhD in materials science from the University of Pittsburgh, a master’s degree in physics from Beijing University of Technology, and a bachelor’s degree in physics from Xiangtan University. Over his career, Zhou has published more than 200 journal papers and received several awards, including the National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Award and the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities.

WesternU joins nationwide effort to optimize medication and vaccination use process

Today, Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) announced that it is joining the RAPID Alliance Medications 360 Study, with a goal of transforming how medications and vaccines are delivered in the U.S. from 2022-2031. The RAPID Alliance is a multi-stakeholder research consortium founded in the University of Louisville Center for Health Organization Transformation (CHOT), a National Science Foundation-funded research center.

Strict COVID-19 policies in Democrat-led states worked, new research found. Republican-led states saw more illness.

Democrat-led states had stricter COVID-19 responses and better health outcomes, a new study found. States with stricter COVID-19 rules saw 8% fewer cases, on average, than models would have predicted. The results show that politics shouldn't influence public-health policy, researchers say. After nearly two years of politically charged battles over...
