Joel Myers, a #PennState #meteorology alumnus, launched AccuWeather in 1962 with one client and turned it into a weather-forecasting juggernaut with revenue of more than $100 million. Some of the world's largest companies are clients now, but it took him a decade to convince businesses that buying his forecasts was a worthwhile investment.

Joel Myers succeeded in turning the weather into big business with AccuWeather.

The research team led by David Weiss at Penn State University performed a specific single quantum operation on individual atoms in a P-S-U pattern on three separate planes stacked within a cube-shaped arrangement. The team then used light beams to selectively sweep away all the atoms that were not targeted for that operation.

#Science #computers #PennStateResearch
The era of quantum computers is one step closer as a result of research published in the current issue of the journal Science. The research team has devised and demonstrated a new way to pack a lot more quantum computing power into a much smaller space and with much greater control than ever before. The research advance, using a 3-dimensional array of atoms in quantum states called quantum bits -- or qubits -- was made by David S. Weiss, professo...

Penn State Behrend #supermileage team exceeds 2,500 MPG
There is some risk with this engine. Maybe it works, or maybe it blows up.

Penn State Behrend's team placed second at the Society of Automotive Engineers' International Supermileage Challenge, traveling 2,528 miles on a single gallon of high-octane gasoline. "You cannot believe how excited we were after our first run," club president Tyler Dorsch said.

On Thursday, June 23, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of a race-conscious post-secondary admissions policy at the University of Texas at Austin.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, considered to be the swing vote, joined Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor, in a 4-3 decision that affirmed the constitutionality of the race-conscious policy and the university’s compelling interest in the educational benefits of a diverse student body.

The concept of recorded live television is what guided Cody Goddard, multimedia specialist for the College of Arts and Architecture’s e-Learning Institute at Penn State, to develop a “new and improved” format for faculty to record #lectures for online courses. http://ow.ly/WVk8301rIUi
Live television. If you’re on the East Coast, you probably don't see the exact moment the stars are dancing or the American idols are singing, but you do watch a recording of their live performance. That concept of recorded live television is what guided Cody Goddard, multimedia specialist for the College of Arts and Architecture’s e-Learning Institute, to develop a “new and improved” format for faculty to record lectures for online courses.

Penn State Brandywine has not only shown initiative in the Green Paws program, but has been working to gain certification as a pollinator garden. Read more about how this #PennState campus is working toward being a #sustainable campus. http://ow.ly/zIlq301L6MJ
Last summer, the Penn State Brandywine Vairo Library staff enrolled in the Green Paws program. Green Paws is a certification program designed to help offices at either University Park or other Commonwealth Campuses to be more sustainable.

“In the solar industry, you typically see people measuring the power potential of sunlight, which is important for energy production,” says Jeffrey Brownson, associate professor of #energy and #mineral #engineering at Penn State. “But very few people are using sunlight for information, and this baseline data could help improve a number of industries. If you can start collecting the right information, you can use it to inform crop yields, assess fire risk of sloped surfaces such as mountains, and predict home heating patterns and solar energy generation.” http://ow.ly/feAy301B9Fd
#PennStateResearch #Meteorology #sustainability #sunlight
Penn State researchers have created an artificially intelligent device that uses bug-like features to collect information from sunlight that could be used to improve solar energy conversion technologies, landscape architecture, farming, and other industries.

Linda M. Collins, director of The Methodology Center at Penn State, and Marya Gwadz, New York University Rory Meyers College of #Nursing Senior Research Scientist, have received a five-year $5.8 million grant to design an intervention to increase engagement with treatment among African-American/black and Hispanic people living with HIV. They are using a pioneering engineering-inspired framework- the Multiphase Optimization Strategy (MOST) -- developed by Collins.

An intervention to increase engagement with treatment among African-American/black and Hispanic people living with HIV has been funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a part of the National Institutes of Health. The study will target people who are neither taking antiretroviral therapy nor consistently engaged in HIV primary care.

After a successful inaugural semester, the Penn State Hollywood Program will expand by more than 40 percent during the 2016-17 academic year, allowing 17 College of Communications students to complete #internships and coursework while living in Los Angeles from January to May. http://ow.ly/IECE301rJqP
After a successful inaugural semester, the Penn State Hollywood Program will return in 2017 with even more opportunities for students to complete internships on location in Los Angeles.

“Schools and classrooms are very structured, and when summer comes around, things can become a lot less routine. This is typically the case whether the child is with a parent, grandparent, babysitter or at a summer camp,” said Dr. Timothy Zeiger, a clinical psychologist at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. http://ow.ly/8Kbc301rJ9O #Research #health #school #anxiety
Change can be hard for many people. For kids — who often thrive on routine and predictability — the transition from school year to summer and into a new academic year can bring uncertainty that can trigger anxiety and behavioral problems.

Great place if you want to do research in gravity: I'm a graduate student in the gravity group and believe that it was a great choice to come here. Beside the excellent research, State College is a nice town (maybe a bit small) and has almost everything one can wish for - due to its size everything is also nearby. The Penn State Campus is really pretty and sometimes I just go to the Aboretum to think about my research.

PSU. High quality education comparable to Ivy League, but without the Ivy League price. Proud of my alma mater.

Building is one of the centers of Penn State. It has a lot of history and is a must-see if you come visit PSU. You won't be disappointed.

I never received admission letter (whether accepted or not) for IST PHD, and when I contacted graduate school I never got any response either. Seems like a great place to study

Big university in a small town, plenty of opportunities and resources for everyone. If you take full advantage and get involved it will certainly be an unforgettable experience. The university gets smaller the more you join clubs and activities and make them your own.
