among colleges, the rich get richer, while black colleges lack


recently, cornell university announced a tremendous gift from a family that has a 120-year relationship with the institution. this gift of $150 million is targeted toward cornell’s recently revamped business school and is the largest gift in the history of this venerable institution. of the sum, $100 million alone will go to an endowment to help the new college of business achieve its “highest ambitions.” put that news alongside the findings of a recent study by a team of economists. among other things, they learned that some colleges enroll more students from the top 1% of the economy than from the bottom 60%. thirty-eight colleges and universities in the united states had more students from families earning $630,000 per year or more than they did from families earning less than $65,000

how brands can benefit from the bias of 'moral licensing'


"all truly great thoughts are conceived by walking." or so said the half-crazed philosopher, friedrich nietzsche. brian wansink took that one step further and conceived a great advertising thought while getting others to go walking.wansink, professor of psychology at cornell university, recruited 56 subjects to walk a mile route. half were told to test an mp3 player as they walked, stopping off at six places along the route to monitor sound quality. the other half were told the walk was exercise, and asked to monitor energy levels at the same set places. after the walk they returned their results, collected payment and were told they were free to go. before they left they were invited to an all-you-can eat buffet the university had laid on.unbeknown to them this was the real experiment. ..

prospects for life on trappist-1 keep getting better as new study suggest wideni


less than a week ago, the citizens of earth were introduced (technically, re-introduced) to a star system 39 light years away hosting seven earth-sized exoplanets, three of which lie squarely in the habitable zone. as if that wasn't exciting enough, researchers are now suggesting that a fourth of the trappist-1 planets might be habitable too, if we stretch our imaginations a bit.new models out of cornell university suggest that the so-called habitable zone, where rocky planets can support liquid water and perhaps life, might be larger than previously assumed, if we consider volcanic hydrogen (h2) as a potential climate-warming greenhouse gas. not only could planets whose atmospheres are warmed by h2 (instead of co2) remain habitable in more distant orbits, certain fingerprints of lif...

hydrogen volcanoes might boost planets’ potential for life


volcanoes that belch hydrogen could bump up the number of potentially habitable planets in the universe.ramses ramirez and lisa kaltenegger, both of cornell university, modeled the atmospheres of planets blemished with hydrogen-spewing volcanoes. these gaseous eruptions could warm planets and ultimately widen a star’s habitable zone, the region where liquid water can exist on a planet’s surface, by about 30 to 60 percent, researchers report in the march 1 astrophysical journal letters. that would be like extending the outer edge of the sun’s habitable zone from about 254 million kilometers — just beyond mars’ orbit — to 359 million kilometers, or roughly to the asteroid belt between mars and jupiter.exoplanets that astronomers had previously thought too cold to support life mig...

sean spicer wore his flag pin upside-down, twitter had a field day


should we be concerned? white house press secretary sean spicer wore his flag pin upside-down during a press conference on friday, march 10, and twitter had a field day.according to cornell university law school’s official site, an american flag flown or displayed upside-down is usually a signal of distress.

robots could soon cooperate on surveillance


for instance, a robot might detect a suspicious person racing through a crowd. the team could follow this person wherever they go, using a planning feature to determine which cameras are needed and where robots need to go to get a better look.there's a lot of work still to be done. cornell has yet to finish a system that it can test, let alone put it into service. however, it would likely be useful for far more than building security. the us office of naval research is backing the project, and there's hopes that the navy could use this to coordinate drones. no matter how this gets used, it's reasonable to say that automatons won't be lone wolves for too much longer.
