Raise the cheer! 

It certainly looks like our Penn State University Nittany Lion mascot rocked the MascotInsider Favorite Mascot of the Year contest.

In fact, it looks like he rocked ALL CATEGORIES, but we’re waiting for confirmation.

Thanks, Tumblrs, for your support. 

We are told it is National Lipstick Day.
Scientifically speaking, have you considered what is in lipstick, how often it is applied, how much is eaten and what effect it could have on you?

Hmmmm… It’s worth some research. Let us know what you discover??

Had to share this. Very dramatic; yes?

Jordan Gaines Lewis from our last post was a TED@NYC star too. Bet you wish you were a researcher like her! Here’s a recap of what she covered at TED@NYC posted by Tedstaff, July 9, 2014.

WHY TIME FLIES – Why does time seem to fly on some occasions and to creep by interminably on others?  That is the focus of Jordan Gaines Lewis’ neuroscience PhD research.
Cross-cultural studies told us five key things that make time fly:
A lack of memorable events (think high school homecoming).
Time becoming short relative to how long you’ve lived.
Actual biological signals within your body.
A focus on boring routines.
Stress, because perceiving there to be too little time actually makes it seem like there’s even less of it.
Armed with this information, ways to slow time down are actually quite simple.
Vary your routine.
Make plans for the future.
Make a conscious effort to savor each moment.

Using only 10% of our brain?! Really?

By this Friday, July 25,

vote for the NIttany Lion mascot of Penn State University

as your favorite college mascot,

  • because he does one-armed pushups.
  • because he is fun AND SMART.
  • because you want to show Penn State some love.

Do you have a picture of the Nittany Lion to share??

Will the car decide correctly? Hit a pedestrian or potentially harm the driver?Is there a right answer? 
“At some point, a car will be built that will make a decision of whether or not it has to save the passenger or kill the person outside the vehicle,” says Penn Stater Sean Brennan.
“If you hit the pedestrian, they’ll almost certainly be killed. If you swerve to avoid them, the car could go over a cliff and kill the driver.”
Sean challenges his students to think about these types of dilemmas. As future programmers, they’ll need to answer those unsolvable questions before they input decision-making algorithms into consumer vehicles.
