The world faces a global hunger crisis of unprecedented proportions. We illustrate how to enhance the productivity of the current operations with science.
Digital entertainment innovation has demonstrated powers to complement, enrich and transform education. Certainly language, culture, and fashion have been influenced by the community of artists and their music (sic), but has the trend to incorporate digital platforms served as a pull through for students to become more interested in coding?
In May 1952, the president of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), S. C. Hollister, appointed a committee to look at the state of engineering education in the United States. The 1955 report, now commonly referred to as the Grinter Report, brought about a sea change in the training of engineers and became a foundational document for engineering education.

We took a departure from STEM and education to a topic that is important because of its influence on education. Since many of our children end up in the bleachers and not on the playing field, how can the pressure of commercialism that culture and society embraces be better managed by parents and student athletes?
Climate change is the long-term alteration of temperature and typical weather patterns in a place. Climate change could refer to a particular location or the planet as a whole. Climate change may cause weather patterns to be less predictable. These unexpected weather patterns can make it difficult to maintain and grow crops in regions that rely on farming because expected temperature and rainfall levels can no longer be relied on. Climate change has also been connected with other damaging weather events such as more frequent and more intense hurricanes, floods, downpours, and winter storms.
What are we learning about AI technology and what is holds as its practitioners set our path forward? All these little digital assistants are helping us make purchasing choices, on relationships, who to hire, what to play to call, who to be our friends on Facebook, and who may most likely harm us. We have become desensitized to what algorithms can do if not better understood and managed.
A Message from the Editorial Review Board... Companies, organizations, and universities are recruiting or bringing in consultants to improve Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Are results reactive, or likely to fizzle over time and may harm employees from marginalized groups by affirming currently held norms? Can we anticipate more accountability as tech workers and others demand leaders make good on their promises for more representation, inclusion, and equity within organizations? Will DEI 2.0 do what is needed?
“A just transition for countries dependent on fossil fuels begins with the recognition that we have to get off of fossil fuels and then you commit the resources to help their economy, to help their workers transition to sustainable alternatives,” Carroll Muffett, chief executive at the non-profit Center for International Environmental Law.
Teaching in the United States was once considered a career for men. Then the profession’s gender composition shifted dramatically around the mid-19th century when the country’s public-school system was born. Women now make up the larger share of teachers than they have in decades. Men can play a critical part in improving education systems as more become teachers. How does this affect teaching a more diverse student population and what is being done to achieve more gender and racial diversity?
