History’s Mysteries: Spalding Golf’s Final Countdown

Welcome back to the latest installment of History’s Mysteries. MyGolfSpy is jumping into the DeLorean and taking a 1.21 jiggawatt-fueled look at the long life and quick death of Spalding Golf. Titleist has been the Ball King for so long, it’s hard to remember a time when it wasn’t. Turns out it was just 20 years ago. Throughout the 90s and into the early 2000s, Spalding and Titleist were running neck and neck in golf ball production. Spalding spent over 125 years as a sporting goods giant. As th...

These researchers are driving health equity with Fitbit

Unfortunately, the pandemic has further widened many of these gaps. Still, health equity research in digital health remains limited. To help address these issues, we announced the Fitbit Health Equity Research Initiative earlier this year to help support underrepresented researchers who are early in their careers and working to address health disparities in comm...

Being the Chair

If you have Netflix and interested in the academic world, I recommend The Chair, a six-episode dramatic series starring Sandra Oh as a new English department chair at a "lower tier ivy league university". The series takes many artistic liberties and compresses much in a short time period but gets much about academics right such as the tension between faculty and the administration with the chair caught in the middle, the need to create majors that attract students, faculty past their prime teach...

Logistics startup Stord raises $90M in Kleiner Perkins-led round, becomes a unicorn and acquires a company

When Kleiner Perkins led Stord’s $12.4 million Series A in 2019, its founders were in their early 20s and so passionate about their startup that they each dropped out of their respective schools to focus on growing the business. Fast-forward two years and Stord — an Atlanta-based company that has developed a cloud supply chain — is raising more capital in a round again led by Kleiner Perkins. This time, Stord has raised $90 million in a Series D round of funding at a post-money valuation of $1.1...

As denying climate change becomes impossible, fossil-fuel interests pivot to 'carbon shaming'

Marianne Ayala/Insider Fossil-fuel interests no longer bother denying that climate change is real. So they've pivoted to new tactics, including painting climate advocates as hypocrites. Drawing attention to advocates' non-eco-friendly habits undermines their credibility and distracts from policy changes. See more stories on Insider's business page. After Prince Harry told Oprah Winfrey that climate change and mental health are two of the "most important issues facing the world...

Daddy-O of Stetsasonic: Even After Almost 40 Years I’m as Good a Rapper Now as I’ve Ever Been

I may have mentioned before that I was a college DJ during the time when hip-hop music came of age.  And one of my favorite songs of the era was Sally, by the legendary hip-hop group Stetsasonic.  And years after my college DJ years (but I’m still a DJ…virtually at least) I had the opportunity to moderate a tech panel at Georgia Tech, and one of the panelists was Glenn Bolton, aka Daddy-O … co-founder of Stetsasonic. It was great hearing Daddy-O talk about technology and his experiences i...

How to Choose the Right Stock Photos for Your Blog Posts

Blogging is a crucial aspect of content marketing—but all words, no visuals don’t manage to hook readers to the screen.  You need some great images that complement the content your audience wants and make the blog more interactive.

The suction speed of an elephant's trunk is 330 miles per hour

The way an elephant manipulates its trunk to eat and drink could lead to better robots, researchers say.Elephants dilate their nostrils to create more space in their trunks, allowing them to store up to 5.5 liters (1.45 gallons) of water, according to their new study.They can also suck up three liters (0.79 gallons) per second—a speed 30 times faster than a human sneeze (150 meters per second/330 mph), the researchers found.The researchers wanted to better understand the physics of how elephants...

How an elephant's trunk manipulates air to eat and drink

New research from Georgia Tech finds that elephants dilate their nostrils in order to create more space in their trunks, allowing them to store up to nine liters of water. They can also suck up three liters per second -- a speed 50 times faster than a human sneeze. The findings could inspire different ways to building robots that manipulate air to move or hold things.

Did Earth's early rise in oxygen help multicellular life evolve?

Georgia Tech researchers find that oxygenation of Earth's surface is key to the evolution of large, complex multicellular organisms. If cells can access oxygen, they get a big metabolic benefit. However, when oxygen is scarce, it can't diffuse very far into organisms, so there is an evolutionary incentive for multicellular organisms to be small to ensure most of their cells can still access oxygen.
