    Education. Education. Education. – Jay White for NC House (District 83)

    – You often hear that in buying a home, what matters most is location, location, location. Well, I’m here to paraphrase that statement to what matters most to each and every one of us is education, education, education. Teachers, you matter to me. Our three children, Addison, Bo and Jason went through the public school system here in Cabarrus County. Addison and Bo graduated from J.M. Robinson High School and Jason, from Central Cabarrus. Addison is now a 1st grade teacher and Darci, my wife, she’s a tutor at a Title I School, Wolf Meadow. During this campaign, you all have been gracious with your ideas and your thoughts. Many…

    Teaching rural and remote – QUT education graduate Emily Craven

    I think what I would say to someone who is considering Mt. Isa or a remote community is, to just do it.

Genuinely, the best thing I have ever done. Hi, my name is Emily Craven and I am a QUT graduate in Education and I now teach full time at Spinifex State College in Mount Isa.

    Tyranny comes home: How the ‘boomerang effect’ impacts civilian life in the U.S. | Abigail Blanco

    So what a lot of people don’t think about with respect to foreign intervention is the idea that the tools and processes that are developed as a part of foreign intervention can come to be used domestically.

    A.I. & Machine Learning: Investing in Tech on Wall Street (w/ Hari Krishnan & Vasant Dhar)

    HARI KRISHNAN: My name is Hari Krishnan. I’m a fund manager at Doherty Advisors, and I’ve been on this station before talking about ETFs and dangers in the VIX and the VIX markets. It’s a pleasure to introduce Vasant Dhar, who is a founder of SCT Capital, one of the first machine learning hedge funds in existence, a professor at the Stern School of Business at NYU, and a director of the PhD program in the Center for Data Science, also at NYU. It would be interesting for me at least to know how you got started in machine learning, and how you got started in finance, two apparently disparate…
