Study finds wealth to be best predictor of college access

first_imgA family that owns a summer home might have better access to college than a family that earns a combined six-figure income, according to a study released last weekend at the American Educational Association’s annual meeting in New Orleans.The study, titled “The Differential Impact of Wealth vs. Income in the College-Going Process,” was written by Su Jin Jez, an assistant professor of public policy and administration at California State University Sacramento, and reveals wealth to be the most important predictor of college access.Wealth is defined as the accumulation of a family’s income and assets, such as homes and investments.“Wealth and income affect the college choice process differently, with wealth consistently being more significant in predicting the college-choice outcomes,” Jez writes in her study.  “The impact of wealth persists even after controlling for academic achievement, habitus, social capital and cultural capital.”The study reports that of the wealthiest 10 percent of Americans, 25 percent have obtained a bachelors degree, while only 16 percent of the top 10 percent of income earners hold a bachelors degree. Nine percent of the entire population has a bachelors degree.The process leading up to a student’s final college decision is two-pronged, according to Tom McWhorter, executive director of financial aid at USC. First, educational preparation and culture, among other factors, define which universities applicants have access to. Secondly, financial resources often dictate what universities students apply to and ultimately attend.“After access, which includes educational background, comes choice, which is what makes the most sense for a student, where cost is the most important factor,” McWhorter said.USC recognizes wealth prevents many students from gaining access to the university, and has therefore developed a comprehensive method for evaluating the amount of need-based financial aid students receive.Many universities assess a family’s income, some assets and allowance for living and retirement expenses, when allocating financial aid resources. This information is submitted as part of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.USC, however, also requires financial aid applicants to submit a College Scholarship Services form, which discloses assets and other expenses not accounted for in the federal calculation.“To distribute funds for need-based grants in the fairest way possible, we will consider all income and assets that may not be considered in the federal calculation,” McWhorter said. “We may ask a family to contribute more of their resources because of their comparative financial strength, which may not come from income alone.”USC’s methodology of distributing need-based financial aid based on the total wealth should guide other universities to make college more accesible to all Americans, according to Jez’s study.“Policy makers looking to level the playing field and make college more accessible to all American’s must address wealth’s impact on the college-going process, instead of merely focusing on issues of income,” Jez writes.Some schools like the University of Chicago and Yale University participate in CSS, but other schools, such as UCLA, do not.The study goes on to report that only 2 percent of the wealthiest 10 percent of Americans have not completed high school or earned their GED, however, approximately 8 percent of the top 10 percent of income earners have not graduated from high school or earned their GED.Of the 10 percent of young Americans with the least family wealth, 34 percent have not completed high school or earned a GED, while 26 percent of the bottom 10 percent of income earners have not graduated from high school or earned a GED.last_img read more

Xabi Alonso: Spain Ahead of Other Teams in Russia

first_imgHow well do you think Julen Lopetegui (he was sacked a day before the World Cup started) is doing with Spain?I think he’s doing really, really well. He’s got things very clear in his head. He’s been able to tell his players very clearly what he wants, and that’s essential. If you can’t do that, then you’re probably not going to achieve your objectives. The national team has got a lot going for it in that respect.Do you see any similarities between this Spain side and the one that won the World Cup and two European titles?The idea of taking the game to the opposition is still there, of controlling the game, passing the ball around and not being so direct. Yes, I would say it’s still pretty much the same. Lopetegui’s Spain has very close ties with the things that make Spanish football strong. It’s based on intelligence, the ability to read matches, and technical quality. That’s what sets us apart from other teams.And then there are the tactical nuances and the flexibility you need for different games because football’s getting increasingly complex and you have to know how to adapt. You try to take the initiative but there are times in matches when you have to play a different way and not make all the running.Aside from talent, what was the secret of the success of that trophy-winning Spain side?Team spirit is vital, that sense of everyone fighting together to achieve a very important objective. You have to all get on. If you don’t, then it can really wear you down. But it very much looks to me as if the current team has got that too. And then there’s the blend of seasoned veterans who still have big contributions to make with players who’ve shown lots of enthusiasm and desire since coming in. That’s a very positive thing too.The 23-man squad for Russia 2018 has generated less debate than many others in recent years. What alternatives does it offer when it comes to opening up opposition defences?There are players who are better at finding space between the lines, players who like to get round the outside or who can cause a lot of damage when given space to work in, like Diego Costa and Marco Asensio. I think this Spain side has more ways of playing than we did. In our case, if we weren’t close to the opposition penalty box, then we found it harder to hurt them.Looking ahead to the group phase, Spain will have to take the initiative, even with Portugal, who I think are going to sit back and wait. Sometimes you have to go and play a different way, though, and having players who have something else to offer is crucial.La Roja are among the favourites for the title. How do you think they will do and which other teams are in with a chance?I’m not just saying it, but I would put them among the favourites because I don’t see any side that’s better than Spain right now. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the games though. Germany are another of the big favourites. They’re a very strong side and they’re always there or thereabouts. The way they’ve been playing, it would be a massive surprise if they don’t make the semis, because they’re the champions and because of the new generation who’ve come into the team. Brazil are also right in there. I think those three are above the rest. Then there’s Argentina, France and maybe a surprise or two. Why not?For the first time in many years you’ll be watching the World Cup as a fan. Have you got anything planned?I like to watch big games with the people I usually watch matches with. And I’ll probably go to the Final. I have already got my ticket; all I need now is for Spain to get there (laughs).Spain remains unbeaten in over 20 matches after the country’s elimination from EURO 2016 in the last 16 at the hands of Italy, the defending champions began their World Cup campaign with a 3-3 draw with Portugal on June 15.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram He played in and won everything there was to win with some of Europe’s biggest clubs and with the Spanish national team, where he was a prominent member of the golden generation that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup hosted by South Africa and UEFA EURO 2008 and 2012. In his first season since hanging up his boots, Xabi Alonso has been putting his time to good use, having just completed a coaching courseYou have been out of football for a year now. How has it gone?Pretty well. The fact is my pace of life has really changed. It was a decision I gave a lot of thought to, so while I do miss it, I’m coping with it well.What made you do your coaching badges? Has it given you a better understanding of the coaches you had in your career?When you do a course like this you move away from the person you have always been and you get closer to the person you want to become. And that’s good. I have always tried to understand the job and how complex it is to be a coach, which has nothing to do with being a footballer.You realise all the things you have to prepare and that when the time comes to get it all across you have to summarise it and be as efficient as possible. That might be where part of the secret lies. And then there’s team management, psychology, and personal relationships, which are almost more important in a way.last_img read more

3DSignals decipher machine maintenance with sound analytics

first_img5 Industries Destined for Technological Disruption Electronic Design is Utilizing AI-Enabled Solu… One of the most compelling aspects of industrial IoT is the ability of sensor technology to solve problems that have plagued traditional industries for years if not decades. One such problem is machine maintenance and repairs. Up until recently, such maintenance was typically time-consuming, costly and limited by the challenge of finding appropriately skilled workers.A start-up that is successfully responding to these challenges through a combination of  IoT and machine learning is Israeli company, 3DSignals.I spoke to Amnon Shenfeld, co-founder, and CEO to learn more. I’m always curious to learn how people get the idea for their start-up. For Shenfeld, it started with a simple train journey:“I was riding a train in England between Cambridge and London, when suddenly the train made this terrible noise. I was trying to figure out if this was the end… but then a few seconds later if it was gone and everything was back to normal. My first thought was, I wonder if the train engineer was sitting here in this carriage, would he be able to say if the noise was normal or not and if it was a problem with the bearings, a problem with the suspension, maybe something on the tracks that the train hit, or if this is just one of the dynamic sounds that the train makes? These trains are pretty long, so I guess it’s very difficult to analyze all the different noises they make in the repair/maintenance garage. So I wondered if they let train engineers drive the trains in the garage to monitor how they sound, as this is a very clear way to understand what is going on.”Shenfeld has a background in deep learning and he explained, “I was pretty sure I could train a neural network to recognize these sounds in order to report them automatically and classify them, then (and with some verifications by experts), build a system based on sounds that would add a lot of significant information regarding the condition of machines.”With an idea that just wouldn’t quit, Shenfeld initiated a field trip, with a bunch of friends from various disciplines: machine learning, mathematics, electrical engineering, to a local steel plant.“We asked the staff, what fails here often? One of the answers was saw blades, they were cutting through steel profiles and beams, and as a result, they would frequently have breakdowns. They told us something pretty amazing: ‘we have 50% efficiency and we’re very proud of it because in the steel industry it is considered a lot,’” he said.He added that now “we’re software people, and we were shocked because if you invest all this money in electricity, manpower, equipment, physical space, you would probably want to get more than 50% uptime. They said before they took over the business they were doing 20%, and one of their main pain points was blade failures that they couldn’t predict; they would spend at least 20 minutes on each blade replacement and they would have on average 3 per day per production line.“So we’re talking about more than an hour a day per machine spent replacing saw blades, not to mention any residual impacts on the machines if the blades shatters. They tried existing monitoring technologies (e.g. current, temperature) to no avail,” he said.Shenfeld thought he and his friends could help and the impetus to create 3DSignals was raring to go.Disrupting the preventive maintenance cycleMachine maintenance is traditionally a laborious process that requires sending a physical person around each factory/plant/workplace to inspect individual machines, typically on a set schedule. It traditionally relies on an engineer to identify anomalies, and respond accordingly.As Shenfeld explained, “People used to rely on acoustics a lot, for example in their cars, (to see if it sounded) normal or was sounding a bit strange. In the same way, a technician that can hear a pump can tell you which one is working well or not.”Indeed, 3DSignals is the first IoT company to utilize sensor tech to monitor machines through sound. Their system can extend to a range of machines “based on the knowledge of how similar machines are supposed to sound and also learning the very specific sound acoustics of specific machines.This is very similar to the human process, if you were to talk to a maintenance engineer that monitors a group of machines, he knows what is normal or not for each machine and this system emulates this behavior with a neural network, in other words, deep learning.”This all leads to increased efficiency in maintenance and the ability to predict problems so that an engineer can respond as needed rather than only within a pre-existing preventive maintenance time frame.3DSignals system is accompanied by an easy to use platform and cloud which means that “The sound samples can even be sent to the manufacturer of the motor, pump, valve, giving them back this very natural knowledge.” It has a natural affinity with the energy industry, he said, where “they’re having so many turbines spinning with no people next to them…They come for their routine maintenance to fix a pump, then notice an entirely different piece of equipment is failing due to how it sounds. They didn’t have any other method before us.”Sound tech has largely been researched in academia for voice recognition, particularly in deep learning and algorithms. As Shenfeld notes, “We’re on the cutting edge of developing software and algorithms and developing automated hearing. It’s very exciting.”Even Elon Musk relied on a mystery sound to try and solve the Space X Falcon 9 explosion:Shenfeld explains that in presenting his idea to companies he asked rooms full of suited staff “Would you know how your machine is working by the sound? I never get a no.” With a technology that has a natural affinity with a range of sectors from mining to agriculture to automated cars, this won’t be the first time you hear about 3DSignals.

9 Tips for Stabilizing Handheld Footage

first_imgSometimes you just can’t shoot on a tripod.Heading to the set or into the field without a tripod? Getting beautiful handheld shots can be a difficult challenge – the recent influx of camera stabilizers and Steadicam equipment is a testament to that. Thinking out your approach to handheld shooting and taking several of the approaches listed below can significantly minimize camera shake.1. Use Two HandsOne of the easiest ways to minimize shaky footage is to use two hands instead of one. Even if your camera is too small to be held by two hands, find a way to use both. This can be holding your wrist or simply holding one hand around another. Adding the extra hand will essential take your camera from being on a monopod to a bipod.2. Keep the Camera CloseHolding the camera away from your body will severely increase camera shake. Most people make the mistake of holding the camera like they would if they were taking pictures, near their eyes. But for shooting video you want to hold the camera near your chin and close to your body. By resting your elbows on your chest and holding your arms parallel with your body you can create a “cocoon” that will make your footage more steady. This technique is certainly dependent on where your display screen is relative to your face, but for most DSLRs this should work perfectly.3. Use a WallIf you can, leaning on a wall is a great way to keep your footage steady. By simply putting your weight on a wall you can create a sort of tripod between your two legs and the wall.4. Bend your Knees and FloatWhen moving with your camera the best way to minimize vertical shift due to walking is to think of your camera as a cup instead of a camera. If you apply the same physics of a full cup to your hand held camera you will quickly find the camera shakes much less. Remember to relax!5. Keep Movements SimpleWhile handheld footage does give you the freedom to preform elaborate camera moves, these moves can make your footage incredibly shaky. It is much more advisable to keep your camera moves simple. Unless the shot calls for it, you may get a better result by keeping your camera stationary.6. Move Your AxisArcs make for smoother movement than pivots.When panning and titling try pretending that your camera is rotating around an axis in front of the camera. This will help you avoid the foot shuffling that occurs when you simply rotate in place. In moving your axis you will quickly find more natural and fluid movements. Think of your movements as being arcs rather than pivots.7. Use a Wider LensIt might seem like common sense, but when you are shooting handheld try using a wider lens. While telephoto lenses might offer a shallow depth of field they are incredibly difficult to keep steady, even with an image stabilizer. If you must have a telephoto shot I recommend standing completely still and not moving at all.8. Minimize FocusingAdjusting focus is one of the biggest culprits of shaky footage. Because you have to bring your hand to the front of the camera, focusing completely negates any effort you’re making to stabilize your footage. Try keeping your focusing to a minimum. In most cases I’ve even found that moving my body is much more steady than moving my focus.9. Fix it in PostIt is always better to shoot the footage right on-location instead of fixing it in post, but if you simply can’t get it right on-location there are a few things you can do to fix it in post. Namely, the warp stabilizer built into After Effects and Premiere Pro make it extremely easy to stabilize shaky footage. We’ve traditionally had a lot of success with the Warp Stabilizer, but mileage may vary depending on the shot. Shoot it great on-location, make it perfect in post.Have any other tips for stabilizing handheld footage? Share in the comments below.last_img read more

BJP government has failed beef eaters: Goa Deputy Speaker

first_imgDeputy Speaker of Goa Legislative Assembly and BJP MLA Michael Lobo said on Wednesday that the BJP-led coalition government had failed beef eaters by not making it available in the state and not keeping cow vigilantes in check.“Some so-called cow protectors are standing at the border and blocking the beef that is being brought into Goa. They say that some Gau Rakshaks have thrown phenyl on the beef. The Goa Meat Complex (State abattoir) has been shut. Some people may not like the way I am talking but if we do not want beef to come from Karnataka and Maharashtra, then certified cattle in Goa should be slaughtered at the government meat complex,” Mr. Lobo, MLA from Calangute constituency told the Goa legislative assembly. While respecting the sentiments of the “Gau Rakshaks”, Mr. Lobo said, “There are people in Goa in large numbers, the Christian and Muslim community and others who eat beef. There are tourists who come here to eat beef. You cannot stop that. But now there is a shortage of beef for our feasts,” Mr. Lobo said.Goa on an average consumes around 20-25 tons of beef every day, and in the absence of operations by State’s only mechanised abttoir in Usgao in South Goa, demand is met by importing from neighbouring states by members of local meat traders’ association.Earlier this year, beef traders in the State went on strike alleging harassment by cow vigilante groups. The strike was called off after intervention by the Chief Minister who directed the police to crack down on cow vigilantes.last_img read more
