Characteristics of College Graduates, with a Focus on Veterans
In 2017, roughly 3.7 million college graduates had served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces, with nearly 250,000 currently serving. The total number of college graduates in the United States younger than 76 years exceeded 61 million, with more than 48 million of these graduates employed. Nearly half (44%) of employed college graduates had earned their highest degree in a science and engineering (S&E) field or an S&E-related field.

The Opportunity & Need for a Nuanced View of Prehospital Information
On the final day of the 2018 North Carolina EMS Expo, Stephen J. Howell, NRP, the EMS captain and coordinator at New Hanover Regional EMS, gave a talk audaciously titled “How Data Drives Success.” Having seen many such presentations over the years—many of which have fallen short of innovative or anything more than platitudes about the “need” to chart patient care for legal coverage, and a pining, fruitless, frankly overblown and never-really-explained desire to gain unfettered access to hospital-side electronic health records—I was curious.

Neo-colonial attitudes to security in war-torn nations out-of-date and unhelpful
(University of Kent) Developed countries imposing their own Security Sector Reform (SSR) processes onto nations recovering from war often rely on entrenched colonial attitudes with no guarantee of success. Research led by the University of Kent looked at the Democratic Republic Congo and Nepal contrasting their outcomes and examining the reasons for success or failure of SSR policies based on Europe. They question whether the systems work in their countries of origin where statistics show ongoing institutional racism. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

Evidence for Majorana bound states in an iron-based superconductor
The search for Majorana bound states (MBSs) has been fueled by the prospect of using their non-Abelian statistics for robust quantum computation. Two-dimensional superconducting topological materials have been predicted to host MBSs as zero-energy modes in vortex cores. By using scanning tunneling spectroscopy on the superconducting Dirac surface state of the iron-based superconductor FeTe0.55Se0.45, we observed a sharp zero-bias peak inside a vortex core that does not split when moving away from the vortex center. The evolution of the peak under varying magnetic field, temperature, and tunneling barrier is consistent with...

Making Injection Molding More Efficient
When it comes to injection molding, traditional manufacturing methods involve a very calculated process that requires molders to re-validate parts every time a mold is going to run in a different machine. This has become a major design headache for device makers, especially for those creating high-precision devices. This re-validation requirement was costing device manufacturers millions of dollars every year and would often lead to weeks or even months of machine downtime. This would often result in lost revenues for both the molders and original equipment manufacturers. That is until recently, when a group of medical dev...

American Women Are Having Fewer Kids —and Having Them Later in Life, Report Says
American women are having fewer children than in years past, and having them later in life, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). The U.S.’ total fertility rate — or the estimated number of lifetime births expected from a group of 1,000 women — hit its most recent peak in 2007, the report says. But in the decade following, fertility rates fell, while the average age of first-time mothers rose, according to the data. These trends are happening all over the U.S., but especially in cities — and gulfs between urban...
