Pawtucket learning center champions equity through arts, sports, and technology

Question: When was ASTRO founded and what is its mission?

My cousin Michael and I founded ASTRO in 2014. Our mission is to champion equity among diverse populations by innovating health-promoting programs that improve the way people live, learn, work, and play.

Q: On Oct. 5, the Social Enterprise Greenhouse announced that it was providing ASTRO with a $25,000 loan. What will you use the money for?

Funds acquired through this loan will provide working capital for ASTRO to expand our operations and offer day care services to adult populations. We originally started out in adult services, but the community need that took precedence was providing a safe place for kids to be during the out-of-school time, and this is where we have focused the majority of our efforts over the years.

Now that many adults have been displaced from their day programs due to COVID-19 restrictions on numbers, there

Army’s ground combat center is developing new methods, formations for the next war

The focus of the Army is ground combat and the way the Army fights is through fire and maneuver.

So, it makes sense that the job of figuring out where technological advances, doctrine and tactics meet would be at the epicenter of innovations in ground combat — the Maneuver Center of Excellence in Columbus, Ga.

To see how the center brings those ideas together in a fast-changing force, Army Times talked with Maj. Gen. Patrick Donahoe, commander of MCOE, ahead of this year’s virtual Association of the U.S. Army Annual Meeting and Exposition, which begins Oct. 13.

While tech gets the headlines and cool videos, it’s how that technology is implemented by the service that makes the difference, Donahoe argued.

Some of that can produce fairly large-scale changes, and so soldiers are likely to see a rethinking of formations, such as the brigade combat team, that have been around for

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice held a news conference on Friday along with Virgin Airlines founder Sir Richard Branson to announce a partnership to bring the Virgin Hyperloop Certification Center to Tucker County in West Virginia.

Hyperloop is a theoretical transportation system originally proposed by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. The idea was to create a high-speed transportation system to send a podlike capsule levitating along a rail inside a low-pressure tube at speeds of more than 600 miles per hour.

The proposal sparked a wave of companies and innovators working to make this technology a reality, with Virgin Hyperloop being one of the biggest investors. A fully functional hyperloop system is still a long way from coming to

Public safety takes center stage in national debate over technology usage by fire trucks, ambulances

Smith said one intersection in his area recently got a traffic signal upgrade. The intersection is near a truck stop where large semi trucks wait at the light. By taking control of the traffic signal, firefighters are able to help clear the intersection of obstacles before they arrive.

“When I grab control of that light, not only does it turn green for me, but it turns green for them. It stops all other lanes of traffic and allows them to clear through the intersection, get in single file and move over to the side,” he said. “I’ve seen that happen numerous times since the implementation of that traffic control device at that intersection.”

In Atlanta, there are plans to deploy connected vehicle technology to more than 1,000 intersections. Transportation officials in Maryland have launched several projects in busy areas.

Retired Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel wrote to FCC on behalf

Nvidia Promises The Pervasiveness Of AI And A New Data Center Architecture

Just after coming off two major industry announcements – the introduction of the highest performing consumer graphic cards and the proposed acquisition of Arm – Nvidia launched its largest virtual Graphics Technology Conference (GTC) on October 5, 2020. Unlike the spring 2020 GTC, which was changed to a virtual conference at the last moment due to COVID-19, this one resembled a more traditional GTC with the kickoff by CEO Jenson Huang revealing a flurry of product and technology announcements. Dressed in his trademark leather jacket and standing in the middle of his kitchen (again), Mr. Huang provided a glimpse into Nvidia’s new solutions for the data center, edge AI, healthcare, and a new suite of collaborative tools.

There were two key areas of focus for this GTC – the growing pervasiveness of AI and a proposed change

(Reuters) – Nvidia Corp on Monday laid out a multi-year plan to create a new kind of chip for data centers, aimed at siphoning off more functions from its chief rival Intel Corp . Models with limited features will debut in months, while full-fledged versions are planned within two years, Nvidia said in a press briefing. Server companies such as Dell Technologies and Lenovo Group Ltd plan to integrate them into their machines, it added.

Nvidia chips have long been used to improve video game graphics, but in recent years they have helped to speed up artificial intelligence tasks such as image recognition. The chips typically sit alongside an Intel central processor, offloading some of the computing work.

Nvidia is now seeking to grab more tasks with its proposed series of “data
