Can the military academies compete with Stanford and Harvard in venture? Two veterans are raising $50M to find out

Soldier-entrepreneurs are unfortunately still a rare breed in Silicon Valley, despite the region’s origins in Cold War defense spending. While the courage and perseverance required to fight in an overseas battlefield (or the office bureaucracy on base) would seem a perfect fit for the travails of the founder, the reality is that the journey from solider to CEO is a long and arduous transition. A couple of organizations have popped up over the years to make the leap easier. For instance, Patriot ...

Rich Archbold: The Buchfuhrers — celebrating Father’s Day as doctor team

When Julia Buchfuhrer was growing up, she had a special bond with her father, Mark Buchfuhrer, but, hard as he tried, he could not persuade her to become a doctor like he was. ‘No way, no way,” she told her dad. She was interested in other things, like maybe being a marine biologist. But her dad persisted. He finally got his wish when his daughter decided to go to medical school and become a doctor, but that wasn’t the end of the story. Julia Buchfuhrer graduated from med school at Western Unive...

"The Mark of Policing: Race and Criminal Records"

The title of this post is the title of authored by Eisha Jain published in the Stanford Law Review Online. Here is its abstract: This Essay argues that racial reckoning in policing should include a racial reckoning in the use of criminal records.  Arrests alone — regardless of whether they result in convictions — create criminal records.  Yet because the literature on criminal records most often focuses on prisoner reentry and on the consequences of criminal conviction, it is easy to overlook...

Graphene 'camera' captures real-time electrical activity of beating heart

Scientists today track electrical signals and voltage changes in neurons and muscle cells by labeling individual cells or probing with electrodes. UC Berkeley and Stanford scientists have developed a new type of sensor that employs a sheet of graphene to get a continuous measure of electric field in these tissues. Electric fields change graphene's reflectance. The physicists found a way to amplify and measure the changes caused by action potentials in a beating embryonic chicken heart.

Biden follows Trump’s mistaken lead on tariffs

There is a surprising commonality between the trade policies of Presidents Joe Biden and Donald Trump. In June 2020, President Trump ordered an investigation into the digital services taxes that several countries had imposed on foreign companies providing services over the internet. President Biden continued this investigation; and this month, it concluded with the announcement that 25% tariffs would be imposed on certain products from Austria, India, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and the UK. However, t...

Soccer: Carli Lloyd scores quick goal and US women defeat Jamaica

HOUSTON (AP) — Carli Lloyd scored 24 seconds into the game and the U.S. women’s national team went on to defeat Jamaica 4-0 on Sunday night in the Summer Series. The U.S. women are undefeated in 41 straight matches, the third longest streak in team history. The team is undefeated in 55 games on American soil.

Pandemic restrictions will largely vanish this week. Politics? Or science?

At the stroke of midnight on June 15, the spell will break. Masks can fall. Churches and gyms and movie theaters can fill up. We’ll finally be able to tell a smile from a scowl, and sales of lip balm — and, perhaps, breath mints — will surely rise. As California stands on the precipice of normalcy after more than a year of pandemic drama and trauma, some worry. Are we really ready? Is the state that valiantly vowed to follow the science really following the science? Juliana Ibaraki, a junior ...

Shrinking to survive: Bacteria adapt to a lifestyle in flux

E. coli adapt to survive sudden starvation. Biologists from Washington University in St. Louis and Stanford showed that when E. coli cells lack nutrients, the cytoplasm becomes more dense as its volume decreases, probably because of water loss. At the same time, the periplasm increases in volume as the inner membrane pulls away from the outer membrane.

Whicker: College football’s playoff expansion confounds

The most engaging, involving and dramatic regular seasons in sports will disappear in 2026. No longer will you begin your Saturday by flipping on the TV at 9 a.m. and watch the dominoes fall until 11 p.m., from Columbus to Gainesville to Norman to Eugene. No longer will every game count. Consistency will be shelved. Health will be devalued. And, in all likelihood, the end of the road will feature the same crimson, orange and scarlet suspects. The College Football Playoff has totally erased what ...

College Football Playoff on brink of expansion: Proposal calls for 12-team event that would be a blessing for the Pac-12

One of the greatest challenges facing Pac-12 football is on the verge of being swept out of the way. The College Football Playoff will expand to 12 teams — and provide much easier access for the Pac-12 champion — if a subcommittee’s proposal is formally adopted later this month by the university presidents that oversee the CFP. (Washington State’s Kirk Schulz is the Pac-12 representative on the CFP’s board of managers.) The timing of the long-awaited expansion has not been determined. The CFP wi...

When Walmart comes knocking

As I’m typing this, I’ve just finished my second panel for our big TC Sessions: Mobility event. The write-ups will be ready in time for next week’s roundup, but a couple of things worth thinking about in the meantime. The first is partnerships with big companies like Walmart. I get the sense that Walmart really loves to play the field when it comes to partnering with small tech startups. And honestly, why not, right? There’s a lot of upside and relatively little downside. At the end of the day, ...

‘In the Heights’ Screenwriter Quiara Alegría Hudes on Killing Her Darlings and Fighting to Ensure Authenticity [Interview]

Long before Quiara Alegría Hudes wrote the screenplay for the new movie musical In the Heights, she wrote the book for…well, the stage musical In the Heights, sharing duties with songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda. But a lot happened between those projects. She’s kept busy. She’s written more plays, more musicals. She wrote a children’s book. She won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play Water by the Spoonful. Not asking her back to shepherd her Tony Award-winning Broadway musical about lif...

How Technology Can Link Teachers, Students, and Parents

We all want to see our children thrive, both academically and emotionally. Parents are eager to understand how to support their children’s learning and nurture their relationships with their children, yet many do not receive the guidance and support they need to do so effectively. This is especially true for parents from historically underserved communities. There is a great opportunity and need for resources that equitably build parents’ capacity to support their children’s success, while als...

UC Irvine baseball doomed by rough start in season-ending loss to Stanford

No matter how good a baseball team might be, it is very hard to win after spotting a talented opponent a seven-run lead in the first inning. That was UC Irvine’s reality on Monday night against Stanford in the championship game of the four-team Stanford Regional of the NCAA tournament. The Cardinal pounced on the Anteaters for seven runs and eight hits before the Anteaters had a chance to grab a bat and held on for an 11-8 win. The loss ends UCI’s season at 43-18, with a Big West Conference reco...
