“The science and engineering has been done, the necessary factories were built, and since the first Death Star was destroyed after completion, those that would be overseeing and building were all safely away.”

WashU financial engineering professor, Zach Feinstein explains how the Empire’s economic system paved the way for fast construction. http://bit.ly/1Ge2eAz #StarWars  #scifi

"I do not know of any other workplace that has their own market. In addition, it makes less of a carbon footprint by only using local items."

WUSM's weekly Farmer's Market offers a range of fresh produce from local vendors, helping members of the community do their grocery shopping at work while also being environmentally-friendly. http://bit.ly/1NSxibU

You can now see an image of the brain fifty times faster. 

Researchers have developed a new method, Photoacoustic Microscopy, to generate a high-speed image of brain oxygenation levels, allowing for better tools to research disease development. http://bit.ly/1xycmDo
These images show fast functional photoacoustic microscopy of the mouse brain. Figure (d) shows a representative x-y projected brain vasculature image through an intact skull. Figure (e) shows a representative enhanced x-z projected brain vasculature image. Figure (f) shows photoacoustic ...

"What piece of advice do you have for students?"
"I would say consistently, the biggest, the most important advice I can give is not to be so afraid. This is a time in your life when you’re coming of age and so many things are uncertain. Its sort of designed that way, so you can learn, and grow into the person that you’ll eventually be when you’re my age. Especially now, there’s so much fear. There’s way more fear about uncertain outcomes than there used to be when I was an undergrad. I think that fear keeps students from exploring, following their passions, from being honest with one another sometimes, or honest with themselves, from making good decisions. You can’t make good decisions when you’re in a fear-based mindset; we’ve measured this. We know this in neuroscience. That would be the biggest advice: try to be become more aware of the ways in which you’re dominated by fear. Try to step out of it. The great thing about this institution is that there are so many resources to help you move from fear to action that is empowered and clearer."

“There is probably no subject more important than the study of food.”

Sustainable agriculture as we know it today can be traced back to the bulletins written by George Washington Carver, an educator dedicated to bettering the lives of poor farmers in the South. http://bit.ly/1BDhwuF

Saving money to aid a better future.

A study conducted by the Center for Social Development in partnership with YouthSave showed that youths tend to save more when taught at a younger age about the benefits of saving. http://bit.ly/1I47mdt

Introduction

The mission of Washington University in St. Louis is the promotion of learning — learning by students and by faculty. Teaching, the transmission of knowledge, is central to our mission, as is research, the creation of new knowledge.

Faculty — composed of scholars, scientists, artists and members of the learned professions — serve society by teaching; by adding to the store of human art, creativity, understanding, and wisdom; and by providing direct services, such as health care.

The university offers more than 90 programs and almost 1,500 courses leading to bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in a broad spectrum of traditional and interdisciplinary fields, with additional opportunities for minor concentrations and individualized programs.
