An Unusual Group of Student Journalists Steps Up

by Administrator on Sep 30, 2011

National experts on admissions and financial aid said the policy was the first of its kind. Seton Hall officials said they hoped it would provide clarity and certainty up front to the most desirable applicants, easing the weeks and months of stress that admitted students face as they wait to hear how much financial aid they might get from different campuses. “The primary motivation has been that as we go through what looks like a double-dip recession, we wanted to help our students,” Seton Hall’s president, Gabriel Esteban, said of the new approach. But in addition, he said, “it probably will help us in attracting a certain quality of students.” To qualify for the discount, which would equal about two-thirds of this year’s $31,440 tuition (room, board and other fees add about $13,000 to the total annual bill), students must graduate in the top 10 percent of their high school classes and have a combined score of at least 1,200 on their math and reading SATs — but no less than 550 on ...

Dear Web Font Providers

by Administrator on Oct 2, 2013

When you buy something, I bet you want it to work. Heck, even if you use something for free — maybe borrowed from a friend — I bet you want it to work. No one prefers hiking boots that are too tight (or too loose), a car that shimmies when you drive faster than 40 miles an hour, or a kitchen knife that can’t cut a tomato. Continue reading →

How Your Product Can Benefit From User Feedback

by Administrator on Sep 17, 2014

Like many great ideas, ours was born of a problem. When I was a graduate student at MIT, I sat next to a classmate who is visually impaired. He would whisper to me to ask the time, even though he wore a watch — which prompted me to wonder how the blind tell time. I later learned from my classmate that he had a talking watch that announced the time out loud when he pressed a button, but he rarely used it in public because he found it disruptive and embarrassing. After that conversation with my classmate, I went home and Googled "watch for the blind". I couldn’t believe what I saw. Continue reading →

Consumer Satisfaction With TV, ISP Providers Falls Further

Consumer Satisfaction With TV, ISP Providers Falls Further

by Administrator on Dec 11, 2014

Most of us couldn't imagine life without our cable or satellite TV, high-speed Internet access and wireless communications. They've become basic utilities, and we pay handsomely for them. Yet, we aren't very satisfied with the service we get. According to the latest American Customer Satisfaction Index, customer satisfaction with subscription TV (cable, satellite and fiber optic service) and Internet service providers continues to decline. Satisfaction with pay TV fell 4.4 percent, to an ACSI score of 65 (on a 100-point scale), while ISPs -- which include many of the same companies -- dropped 3.1 percent to 63. These are the lowest scores of all 43 industries tracked by ACSI. "Customers question the value proposition of both, as consumers pay for more than they need in terms of subscription TV, and get less than they want in terms of Internet speeds and reliability," said Claes Fornell, ACSI chairman and founder. The survey finds that customers are much more ... Continue reading →

GPS eye for slippery trucks

GPS eye for slippery trucks

by Administrator on Dec 11, 2014

NEW DELHI: Oil marketing companies (OMCs), including IOC, BPCL and HPCL, have been instructed to install global positioning system (GPS) to monitor the movement of tank trucks from the depots to retail outlets in a bid to check adulteration. Further, the government is targeting complete automation of all retail outlets selling more than 200 kilolitres (KL) per month by March '07. An aggressive strategy has been chalked out to tackle the menace of petroleum adulteration, which according to recent government estimates is worth over Rs 15,000 crore. A slew of measures, including adoption of Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) for petrol and diesel, BIS certification and third-party inspections, installation of micro-processor controlled state-of-the-art dispensing machines and introduction of gas chromatography test for testing petrol and diesel have been suggested. The OMCs have been asked to complete third-party certification of all retail outlets selling more than 100 KL per ... Continue reading →

GPS, a must have for companies

GPS, a must have for companies

by Administrator on Dec 11, 2014

Just a few years ago, every one said it was unnecessary; that customers didn't want it, and that even if they wanted it, they weren't willing to pay for it, and to top it all, it was too expensive. Everyone thought the technology needed to be adapted. Not any more. We're talking about GPS, or Global Positioning Systems. This system is used to accurately pinpoint the location of a vehicle or entity on the surface of the earth, whether on sea or land or air. A typical GPS system consists of over 24 satellites at around 22,000 km above the earth, a transponder-receiver on the ground unit, and a GSM, or the cellular network on the ground. The idea is triangulation: signals sent from the satellites are collated, analysed for distance and location in the ground unit and bounced off to the cellular network by sms. Digitised maps can be superimposed to get the location of the truck. GPS is already being used for purposes as diverse as vehicle tracking, to earthquake and water ... Continue reading →
