NC State linguistics professor Robin Dodsworth tells the story of the decline of the Southern accent. Do you have any guesses as to why it's disappearing? ‪

The traditional Southern accent is disappearing in Raleigh. NC State sociolinguist Robin Dodsworth knows why.

+Fast Company has Raleigh at number 2 on its list of "the next top 10 cities for tech jobs." Reasons for making the cut include a lively tech industry, its historic downtown, affordability and of course, local renowned educational institutions. 

#Raleigh   #technews   #jobs  
Sure, New York and Silicon Valley will always be tech hubs but these other U.S. cities could be home to the next big thing.

+Forbes has #Raleigh  at #3 on its list of "cities creating the most white-collar jobs." What do you think it is about Raleigh that attracts these opportunities? 

#NCState   #jobs   #tech  
Increasingly much of what we call tech is really about business services. Here are the metro areas that are adding the most jobs in what has become America's largest high-wage sector (and perhaps our least understood one).

Researchers from NC State and UNC Chapel Hill have created a "smart insulin patch" for diabetes patients. The patch is no bigger than a penny and covered in microneedles packed with microscopic storage units for insulin and glucose-sensing enzymes that rapidly release their cargo when blood sugar levels get too high. ‪

Researchers have created the first “smart insulin patch” that can detect increases in blood sugar levels and secrete doses of insulin into the bloodstream whenever needed.
