EASI: Bringing science and tech to students and teachers | Local News Stories

For over a decade local science teachers have banded together to form the Eastern Arizona Science Initiative. Together, these educators put on annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Math summer camps and provide teacher support.

Paul Anger is the EASI chairperson and one of the creators of the non-profit group in 2008. Anger is also the director for the Eastern Arizona College Discovery Park campus, where the group holds their meetings and multiple youth summer camp activities.

“Teachers meet once a month to go over planning activities to help each other as teachers. A big factor is the extracurricular activities during the summer for the youth,” Anger said. “The idea is Discovery Park will be the hub of science and STEM activity of Graham and Greenlee County.”

Anger said over the years the initiative’s summer STEM camps have grown in popularity. While the cost of attending the three to four-day camps

Slack is experimenting with Instagram-like Stories

Slack Audio Concept
Slack’s Audio concept

Slack

The other experiment is an always-available audio feed that you can toggle on or off in any channel. When enabled, anyone can start a conversation and have people join in if they so choose. According to Slack, this is designed for “ad hoc connections when you need a quick answer or more eyes on a problem.” In other words, these are for unscheduled, spontaneous conversations that might not be important enough for a video call. It’s very reminiscent of the signature feature of Discord, a chat app that operates much like Slack but with more of a focus on gaming.

The aforementioned Slack Connect Direct Message refers to secure direct messaging across organizations. It’s an extension on Slack Connect, a feature announced in June that lets up to 20 companies communicate with each other. Simply share a private link with a trusted partner or customer, and

Tech review: Sony Xperia 1 II is a smartphone for shutterbugs, Reviews News & Top Stories

Sony continues to buck conventional smartphone trends.

Its latest, the Xperia 1 II flagship smartphone (available on Lazada), is taller than usual because of the unusual 21:9 screen aspect ratio it first introduced last year.

The Xperia 1 II also eschews the hole-punch selfie camera and the in-display fingerprint reader – used by almost all smartphone vendors to achieve a near-bezel-less display.

Instead, the Xperia 1 II has relatively thick top and bottom bezels to accommodate its front camera and dual stereo speakers. The phone also has a side-mounted capacitive fingerprint reader.

In addition, you will find a headphone jack, a port that has been removed from most high-end phones. The SIM card tray can be removed without an eject tool and comes with a microSD card slot that lets users expand the phone’s 256GB of built-in storage by up to an additional 1TB.

As a result of having these

Customer Success Stories From The FourKites Conference

Two weeks ago, Chris Cunnane and I joined the FourKites Visibility 2020 conference from the confines of our home offices. The conference offered a clear message of how FourKites is moving forward during the current pandemic, a vision of what is to come, and a number of customer success stories.

First of all, who is FourKites? FourKites is all about near real-time visibility to shipments. FourKites CEO Matt Elenjickal has pointed out that visibility by itself is not enough. “It is one thing to know where the trucks are, but what am I going to do with that data?
