Spotlight On Technology: The ‘T’ In Stem

Experts agree that STEM jobs are essential to a growing economy and vital to our nation’s competitiveness. Technology, or computer-related occupations, make up 49% of overall STEM employment and are expected to grow at a much stronger rate compared to overall employment over the next several years. ¬†Demand for these workers is being driven by the increased need for businesses, government and other organizations to design, adopt and leverage the latest technologies. ¬†While workers in these fields should possess strong problem-solving, analytical and communication skills, these occupations also offer great opportunities for individuals that want to push the boundaries of technology by using their imagination and creativity.

Elephants In The Room: How The Republican Convention Works

From August 27-30, about 2,286 delegates and 2,125 “alternate” delgates from across the United States gathered in Tampa, Florida, to formally nominate the Republican Party’s candidate for the 2012 presidential election.

They were joined by some 15,000 journalists and media operatives around the globe, each attempting to scrutinise every nuance of this political spectacular, from before the curtain raises until the red, white and blue balloons fall from the rafters at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

The event, with all its glitz and glamour, focused on drumming up enthusiasm for the party’s electoral ticket, with dozens of aggrandising speeches trumpeting the finer points of Republican policy, and demonising those of President Obama’s Democratic Party.

It is the world’s biggest pep rally, leaving voters and party activist fire up in the hope of winning debates, from the water cooler to national TV, and winning votes when the US heads to the polls on November 6.
