Should students be allowed to use their laptops or tablets during class and can they be trusted to only use technology for classroom related purposes, or should all devices be banned in the classroom in favor of handwritten notes?

Dorsey, an associate professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy, serves as a chairperson of the college’s Academic Policies Committee, which wanted to help faculty have…

New technology developed by Cornell University students could prevent conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome that are common in the workplace. After spending long hours of the day working in Cornell laboratories, doctoral students Apoorva Kiran and Jason Guss realized the commonality of pain from repetitive motion tasks. That’s where the idea for Orthofit was born. With fellow doctoral student Pankaj Singh, the three started working on their idea to prevent musculoskeletal hand injuries in the workplace. “We know that people are getting injured because of the nature of the work and when we studied it, we realized that carpal tunnel syndrome…

Once they leave here, each will take a test to get their 107 license, the technical term for a drone license.

PULL! Then a bang. The clay pigeon shatters in midair, leaving a small could of dust. Getting behind the 20-gauge shotgun was Miranda Lanzatella’s favorite part of the Seneca County Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Shooting Sports Sampler. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTJ5O54TSUQ&t=5s “I don’t know, I just like shooting bigger stuff,” Lanzatella said with a laugh. She was one of a little more than a dozen youth participants. “So the idea was to introduce multiple disciplines to kids from around the county. We did muzzleloader today, shotgun today, air pistol and air rifle,” Keith Tidball, Assistant Director of the Cornell Cooperative Extension, said. “Many times,…

Posting memories on social media help people remember them, even if the events are less significant than others, researchers at Cornell University have found. Qi Wang, a professor in Cornell’s School of Human Ecology, led the research. Wang instructed participants to keep a diary to record everything that happened to them during the day, whether they had posted about them online and how important the events were to them. A surprise memory test after one week revealed that participants were more likely to remember the events they posted on social media, even if they were less important than other events.…
