Syracuse, NY, Nov. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A company led by Syracuse University alumnus that specializes in emergency preparedness and response technology is now helping diverse young men and women realize their dream of a college education.

Commentary: Too much TV money for college football to pause playoffs

The man responsible for guiding the College Football Playoff through a global pandemic sat in his Kansas City area home late Saturday morning, flipped on the Ohio State-Indiana game and ordered himself a plate of nachos for delivery.

On Monday, Bill Hancock will attend the first meeting of the CFP selection committee in Grapevine, Texas, and Saturday was the last chance to gather data before the group comes up with its first top 25. But, like fans across the country, Hancock was met with news of Florida State-Clemson being postponed just hours before the scheduled kickoff because of COVID-19 concerns. Never mind that the Tigers had flown to Tallahassee on Friday with the full intention of shredding the Seminoles.

“Oh man, it’s 2020 isn’t it?” said Hancock, the CFP executive director, when reached by phone. “I know that’s trite, and it’s become jargon, but it’s true, you know? I think

Virgin Galactic Loses More Money, Plans to Sell More Tickets

Shares of space tourism company Virgin Galactic (NYSE: SPCE) are up a strong 13% since reporting earnings last Thursday. This must mean that the company’s results were great, right?

Virgin Galactic Loses More Money, Plans to Sell More Tickets

Well, no. As my fellow Fool Lou Whiteman pointed out at the time, Virgin Galactic actually fell quite a bit short of even Wall Street’s rather low expectations for Q3. Analysts had forecast that Virgin would lose $0.26 per share. It actually lost $0.34 per share — and reported zero revenue for its second straight quarter.

But if “earnings” aren’t the reason that Virgin Galactic stock is rising after earnings, then what is? Let’s dig into the report and see if we can find out.

Didn’t go to college? Here are 20 ways you can still make good money

One of the hottest trends in online marketing these days is online course creation. This is where you create an online course and sell it to people who want to learn about what you know and how your knowledge can fix other people’s problems. Of course, you have to have a related skill that you can teach, but this can be overcome with extensive research. 

Have you taken an online course that you liked? Do you have personal experience to add to the content of the original course? Then you can emulate the course, making sure not to copy it, but to rewrite the material in your own words, based on your own experience with the topic.

Online courses offer a high opportunity, especially with the recent increase in online events. Even if existing resources exist on the internet for free, people will pay for the work you have done

38% of students worry they won’t have money to cover college costs

Jacob Vanderwoude is worried pretty much all the time these days. About Covid-19 affecting his health. About remote classes affecting his grades. About being able to continue affording college. 

A sophomore studying computer engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Vanderwoude tells CNBC Make It that all of his classes are fully remote this semester. And although he lives on campus to ensure a quiet environment, remote learning is proving to be a challenge, Vanderwoude says.

“I feel like I’m getting a much lower quality of an education. In general, it’s just so much harder to focus,” Vanderwoude says. “Sitting in front of the screen for two hours straight, it’s hard to not space out for five minutes. And then if you do, you’re lost for the rest of the lecture.”

On top of that, Vanderwoude says he’s barely able to cover all of his expenses, including his $1,000-per-month rent, books

3-D-printed weather stations could enable more science for less money

An inexpensive monitoring system with 3-D-printed parts and low-cost sensors might not last as long as a commercial one, but it can be just as accurate, researchers found.

Across the United States, weather stations made up of instruments and sensors monitor the conditions that produce our local forecasts, like air temperature, wind speed and precipitation. These systems aren’t just weather monitors, they are also potent tools for research on topics from farming to renewable energy generation.

Commercial weather stations can cost thousands of dollars, limiting both their availability and thus the amount of climate data that can be collected. But the advent of 3-D printing and low-cost sensors have made it possible to build a weather station for a few hundred dollars. Could these inexpensive, homegrown versions perform as well as their pricier counterparts?

The answer is yes—up

Report: NASA Needs More Time, Money to Bring Back Mars Rocks | Science News

By MARCIA DUNN, AP Aerospace Writer

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — NASA is underestimating the amount of time and money it will take to bring Mars rocks back to Earth in the coming decade, an independent panel said Tuesday.

The review board suggested that NASA and the European Space Agency consider bumping the next launches in the sample-return effort from 2026 to 2028, given all the technological challenges. These delays will increase costs, pushing the planning budget to $4 billion or more — $1 billion more than currently envisioned by NASA, the panel noted.

Already more than halfway to Mars, NASA’s Perseverance rover will hunt for the best geologic samples, after landing in February. It’s aiming for Jezero Crater, believed to be an ancient river delta that may have once harbored microscopic life.

Scientists want to analyze these samples in the best labs on Earth, in hopes of ascertaining whether

Theology college charged in alleged $12 million scheme involving fake students and ‘free’ money

A federal indictment alleges that a private theology college based in North Carolina was running a fraudulent scheme to make money from fake student loans.

“It was part of the conspiracy that the conspirators actively recruited fake students to enroll at the Columbus Center,” the indictment states, adding that one of the defendants “told individuals that they could obtain ‘free’ money without doing any schoolwork and without attending any classes” and “assured the prospective students that others would do the course work and all she needed was the student’s personal identifying information.”

Six administrators from the Apex School of Theology — based in Durham, North Carolina, with satellite offices around the region — were charged by a federal grand jury on the counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, and financial aid fraud. Two were also charged with money laundering. 

The Department of Justice stated that the defendants allegedly “engaged in a
