STEM Education Needs a Makeover

from BDPA Foundation Blog by Wayne Hicks

Faye Anderson lays out a compelling argument for the makeover that needs to take place in science, technology education and math (STEM) education if America hopes to win the future. I encourage you to check out her blog post.

Do you agree with her analysis? What STEM education changes would you like to see made in BDPA at local or national level?

How Google Increased Your Gmail Security

from Clark Thought Leadership by Julius Clark

In January of 2010, Google made HTTPS encryption a default security setting for Gmail users email session via a webpage. (See Link Below)

This was a positive move, because it greatly reduces the risk of someone eavesdropping on your communications with Gmail. Gmail users privacy was increased significantly, which will cause a reduction in personal information breaches.
Note: Now this enhanced security can be defeated if you are using a computer that has malware that can steal your keystrokes or clicking on unfamiliar links on websites and in email that can hijack your computer and use the HTTPS security to protect their misdeeds.

Behind the Scenes of My Interview With Keisha Jordan

Posted by MartyBLOGs

Dare to be different. Change your life with an "actionist” attitude.

Our final project assignment for my DC489 "The Big Picture” class was to interview a person in the field of entertainment. I organized my project by prospecting my LinkedIn connections list for potential interview candidates. I specifically researched some of the artists that I have reached out to via social media and found a couple of candidates with interesting profiles whose careers I wanted to know more about. Senior Art director Keisha Jordan of Common Ground Marketing was one of those who responded.

A couple of things stood out about Keisha. First, her artsy profile picture caught my attention. Instead of a head shot she uses a hand sketch of her face as her profile picture on LinkedIn. That instantly made her stand out from pretty much everyone else on my list (See why you should never leave your profile picture space blank?). It was proof enough to me that she was a serious artist so she was an immediate candidate. The other factor was that we could talk shop about the digital tools we use for our different artistic pursuits. Here’s the interview. Take a look and I’ll continue on the other side.
