Caltech, other colleges drop SAT and ACT from admissions decisions

But Caltech won’t even consider those tests in the selection of its next two entering classes. It is in the vanguard of a small but growing movement to eliminate the ACT and SAT from admission decisions. The immense educational disruptions of the novel coronavirus pandemic, especially shortages of seats at testing centers, have fueled the development.

Others experimenting with this approach include the University of California at Berkeley and some other UC campuses, Reed College in Oregon, the California State University System and Washington State University. Catholic University, in D.C., said this year it will omit test scores in admissions from now on.

These schools are taking a more radical stance than the “test-optional” movement, which allows applicants to choose whether to send scores. Instead, these schools are declaring themselves “test-blind” or “test-free.”

Nikki Kahealani Chun, director of undergraduate admissions for Caltech, said the 2,200-student school in Pasadena has never

Tech Stocks Drop as Trump Virus Test Fuels Swings: Markets Wrap

(Bloomberg) — U.S. stocks slumped in volatile trading as investors weighed the implications of President Donald Trump’s positive test for the coronavirus along with renewed efforts to forge agreement on fiscal stimulus.

The Nasdaq 100 led losses amid declines for tech companies including Apple, Microsoft and Amazon.com. The megacap shares also dragged down the S&P 500 Index, even as most stocks on the gauge gained. A disappointing jobs report that showed less hiring than analysts had estimated underscored the urgency to push through an aid measure, and stocks were pushed around by conflicting signals on the prospects for reaching a compromise in Washington.

Crude oil tumbled for a second day. The yen, often seen as a haven in times of market stress, edged higher amid the increased uncertainty in the runup to the Nov. 3 presidential election. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals rose in after-hours trading after Trump’s doctor said the

  • LINK has plummeted by 51.60% in a little over 45 days.
  • Since September 10, the number of whales holding 1M to 10M LINK tokens has fallen from 54 to 49.

After charting an all-time high of $16.83 on August 16, 2020, the decentralized oracle has dropped to $9.60, as of press time. That’s a 51.60% price in a little over 45 days. This downward fall was triggered by the evening star pattern, which prompted the price to fall in a parallel channel formation. The price has faced repeated rejection at the parallel channel’s upper bound and the SMA 100 in the last five days.

Bungie Confirms ‘Destiny 2’ Is Never Getting A New Engine So We Can Drop That Now

In the wake of a big technical TWAB regarding Destiny 2 this past week, the good old question of the series getting a “new engine” has surfaced again.

Some are interpreting the recent comments about all the changes to the engine as a smokescreen for the fact that yes, Destiny is effectively getting a new engine. Or if not, they’re just preparing to replace the current engine with a new one down the road and these are just temporary patches.

Neither of these things are true. And in fact, Bungie has come out to say explicitly that no, Destiny is never getting a fully new engine.

Computer Aided Detection Market to Grow US$ 1.1 Bn through 2025 Demand Suffers Slight Drop in 2020 Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Sep 25, 2020 (MARKITWIRED via COMTEX) —
Medical imaging has played an important role in the healthcare industry. The prevalence of various chronic conditions among patients has augmented the need for advanced diagnostics, paving the way for computer-aided detection services for debilitating conditions such as cancers. Due to its precise technology, computer-aided detection services are able to detect anomalies in the fledgling stages, allowing patients to undergo timely treatment and prevent further complications. Technological enhancements in the form of nanomaterials, big data analytics and 3D/4D imaging have largely simplified the entire computer-aided detection process, producing highly accurate results.

However, the onset of COVID-19 has dented growth prospects of the market. Imposition of nationwide lockdowns has generated a reduction in the number of hospital visits for preventive care, leading to a dip in medical imaging services for the

The OnePlus 8 is on sale, but that doesn’t make it a good buy right now. 

Angela Lang/CNET

Spanish Mountain Gold: Assessing The Technical Damage After The Drop (OTCMKTS:SPAZF)

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for investors in the gold (GLD) sector as the metal has slid more than 10% off its new all-time highs. Unfortunately, this has transformed the relentless bids under gold juniors into a flood of sell orders, with many explorers falling 25% from their highs. Spanish Mountain Gold (OTCPK:SPAZF) has been one of the hardest-hit names to date, with a 40% correction in barely two months. While this decline has made the valuation more reasonable, it’s left some dents in the technical chart, with strong resistance stacked overhead. Based on the relative weakness vs. peers and an inferior project across many metrics, I continue to see better opportunities elsewhere in the sector.

We’ve seen a sharp fall from grace for Spanish Mountain since August, and the severity of this drop shouldn’t be surprising. The ~ $100 million
