Atlanta, Dec 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) —
Atlanta, Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Cecil B. Day School of Hospitality Administration at Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business has received a $2 million endowment from Deen Day Sanders to establish an immersion program in memory of her late husband, Days Inns founder and school namesake, Cecil B. Day, Sr.

The endowment will be used to develop the Cecil B. Day Immersion Program to provide graduate and undergraduate hospitality students semester-long experiential learning opportunities tailored to their specific career aspirations. The majority of the gift will be used to provide scholarships and academic aid to make it possible for students of all backgrounds to participate.

Whether studying domestically or abroad, participants will take part in signature experiences that demonstrate internationally renowned examples

Researchers at the University of Basel and Ruhr-Universität Bochum have realized quantum dots—tiny semiconductor nanostructures—that emit light close to the red part of the spectrum with ultra-low background noise. Quantum dots might one day constitute the basis for quantum computers; the light particles, also called photons, would then serve as information carriers. Quantum dots with adequate optical properties had previously only been obtained for photons with wavelengths in the near-infrared range. Now, the researchers have succeeded in creating low-noise states at wavelengths between 700 and 800 nanometres, i.e. close to the visible red range. This would, for example, enable coupling to other photonic systems. They outline their findings in the journal Nature Communications from 21 September 2020.


Different wavelengths required

Systems for quantum communication require photons of different wavelengths. For communication over long distances, the main

As progress in traditional computing slows, new forms of computing are coming to the forefront. At Penn State, a team of engineers is attempting to pioneer a type of computing that mimics the efficiency of the brain’s neural networks while exploiting the brain’s analog nature.


Modern computing is digital, made up of two states, on-off or one and zero. An analog computer, like the brain, has many possible states. It is the difference between flipping a light switch on or off and turning a dimmer switch to varying amounts of lighting.

Neuromorphic or brain-inspired computing has been studied for more than 40 years, according to Saptarshi Das, the team leader and Penn State assistant professor of engineering science and mechanics. What’s new is that as the limits of digital computing have been reached, the need for high-speed image

Syracuse University’s Newhouse School establishes scholarship fund in memory of late dean …

Syracuse, NY, Oct. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mark J. Lodato, dean of the  S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications  at Syracuse University, today announced the establishment of the Lorraine Branham Scholarship Fund.  

Used primarily to recruit and support Newhouse students from socioeconomically disadvantaged populations and other underrepresented groups, the fund will provide under-resourced, talented students the opportunity to attend Syracuse University and the Newhouse School debt-free.  

The fund is named in honor of late Newhouse dean Lorraine Branham, who died in April 2019. “Lorraine was a champion of access to higher education, and I’m confident this new multimillion-dollar investment would make her proud,” says Lodato.  

This new fund will supplement the Lorraine E. Branham Endowed Scholarship for Newhouse students from underrepresented populations, which was created in Branham’s memory by alumni and friends following her death. 

Through the new fund, as many as 10 scholarships will be awarded each
