Paisley Express – Daily Record Online

A year of hard work in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths have just paid off for a Paisley school.

Brediland Primary has been rewarded with a full STEM Nation Award.

The effort included working in the class, at home, meeting Education Secretary John Swinney (pictured below) and even principal teacher David Rigmand jetting off to Portugal to attend a European presentation.

The award was one of just 19 made by Education Scotland,

The project involves the entire 206 school roll in the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths.

Mr Rigmand – seen below presenting in Lisbon – said: “I think the whole school now knows the importance of these subjects while at school and to finally get jobs.

By Anna Irrera, Reuters Arianna O’Dell, a 30-year-old entrepreneur and songwriter based in New York City, had a tumultuous four-year journey in cryptocurrency before selling her investments in February. During her rollercoaster ride, bitcoin prices swung from under $1,000 to nearly $20,000. O’Dell may not have made optimal decisions about when to buy or sell, and missed out on the recent rally – but says she doesn’t regret that.

‘Dangal’ star Fatima Sana Shaikh on ’90s- The New Indian Express

By PTI

NEW DELHI: There is a certain romance and sweetness to the 1990s that was free from the hassles of social media overdrive, believes “Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari” actor Fatima Sana Shaikh for whom playing hide-and-seek with her friends is the most memorable part of the bygone era.

Shaikh, who stars in the ’90s-set comedy “Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari”, said the information explosion of the digital age is in stark contrast to the slower, less corrupt decade which saw the arrival of Internet.

“There was technological development at that time but it was not corrupted. There was no social media bullying. Technology was very new, so everything appeared sweet and romantic.

“There were telephones, there was no instant messaging like today. We did not used to get hassled by technology then. Now we look for a detox,” the 28-year-old actor told PTI in an interview.

Josh Leatherman, chief marketing officer for Service Express, says leadership is often more about asking than telling, and by staying true to that principle, his company has been able to successfully navigate the challenges presented by the coronavirus.

“Our leaders did not begin the quarantine by telling employees what we needed from them,” explained Leatherman, whose company earned the No. 1 spot among midsize companies in the Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces competition. “We asked our employees what they needed from us and then responded to their needs. That question made all the difference.”

Based in Grand Rapids, Service Express maintains servers and mainframes for companies across 18 states. But during the pandemic, Leatherman said Service Express also was deeply committed

Apple Expanding ‘Express’ Retail Store Setup That Offers Safer Purchase Options

Apple is planning to expand a new “Express” store format that will make it easier and safer for customers to purchase new Apple devices, including the iPhone 12 lineup, reports Reuters.

The Express store format features a wall built around the front of the main Apple Store with temporary sales counters that are protected by plexiglass, similar to a bank. There are shelves of accessories behind store employees, and customers can pick up items at stores after ordering online, or talk with Apple’s staff for help.

Apple has been using curbside pickup in some areas where there are serious coronavirus outbreaks, but Apple’s retail chief Deirdre O’Brien told Reuters that curbside pickup doesn’t work well in shopping malls and downtown shopping centers where the “curb” is far from the store location.

For these situations, the Express format is preferred.
