Purdue Names First Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fellow

Purdue Engineering names first Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fellow, Yung-Hsiang Lu, professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been named the first Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fellow in Purdue University’s College of Engineering. 

A Purdue University professor and innovator who works to inspire the next generation of technology leaders has been named the first Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fellow for the College of Engineering.

Yung-Hsiang Lu, a professor of electrical and computer engineering, has developed several patented technologies and helped his students start their own companies. He is a Purdue Faculty Scholar, Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and Distinguished Scientist of the Association for Computing Machinery.

We move our discoveries in the lab out to the world for impact through patents and commercialization opportunities, Lu said. This new role provides me with a great opportunity to help connect members of our engineering family with resources to move their technologies and research to communities and people in need.

Lu’s appointment comes as the College of Engineering has put a new emphasis on the importance of faculty innovation and commercialization. These entrepreneurial activities can be documented in the formal tenure review process.

Yung is the perfect fit for this position to help connect our College of Engineering with the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship and resources to support entrepreneurship and commercialization, said Wayne Chen, associate dean for research and innovation in the College of Engineering and Reilly Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Materials Engineering. We want to further develop our culture of support for faculty and students who take their research and lab work to the world through patents and startups.

Lu will collaborate with the Purdue Foundry, an entrepreneurship and commercialization hub, and the Purdue for Life Foundation. He has advised several student teams that won business plan competitions and helped a company obtain two Small Business Innovation Research grants.

Everett Berry, a Purdue alumnus who, with Lu, co-founded a company called Perceive, said he remembers fondly the professor’s belief in the ability of undergraduate innovators.

Having seen Silicon Valley inside and out by this point, I know Dr. Lu embodies the best of the entrepreneurial instinct that we celebrate, Berry said. He was my first, and still strongest, inspiration for building hard technology.

Another alumnus and former member of Lu’s research team, Zohar Kapach, started a company called Oqullo. He said Lu helped him realize his love for computer engineering and the opportunities to grow an entrepreneurial career in the field.

I continue to apply my experiences working with Dr. Lu to my daily research work, Kapach said. I was able to apply the knowledge I gained from working with him to raise a substantial seed fund.

Lu continues to work with the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization to patent inventions. This office operates one of the most comprehensive technology transfer programs among leading research universities in the U.S.

First Public Health Insurance Option For Nevadans Passed

USofCare on Assembly Passage of Nevada Public Option to Make Health Care More Accessible and Affordable

United States of Care’s Liz Hagan, Director of Policy Solutions, issued the following statement today in response to the Nevada Assembly’s passage of SB 420, a bill to create a public health insurance option in Nevada:

“Today is a day of great progress and promise for Nevadans, as the Assembly has now joined the state Senate in passing a public insurance option (SB 420). This critical legislation will significantly reduce both the cost of health coverage and the number of Nevada residents forced to go without health insurance because they can’t afford it.

“The Silver State ranks 49th overall in state health system performance and it’s one of the least-insured states despite having expanded Medicaid. The pandemic has shone a light on many of the longstanding shortcomings in Nevada’s health care system and has made all too clear that people need dependable coverage that is with them through life’s changes, like losing a job or starting their own business.

“The number of people without insurance is especially high among Hispanic/Latino Nevadans, over 20% of whom are uninsured. The approved legislation goes a long way towards increasing access to coverage options that people can depend on and afford — all while helping to reduce disparities. We look forward to the governor signing this legislation into law, which will make the Silver State the second in the nation to enact a public option and will be a national model for expanding access to equitable, quality, affordable health care.”

Air Italy launches direct San Francisco-Milan service

SFO becomes 4th US destination served and 2nd in California. New San Francisco-Milan service comes one week after inauguration of direct flights from LAX. LAX and SFO to be joined by first direct service from Canada when Toronto- Milan is launched on May 6th

It is a great pleasure to add San Francisco to our network as it is sure to be a success with both our leisure and business travellers. “San Francisco is undoubtedly one of the world’s great cities. Famous as being the gateway to Silicon Valley and the Napa wine region, the city has undoubtedly always been a catalyst for many social, cultural and economic developments since its foundation. “Our home Italy similarly needs little introduction – and we are extremely excited to open this new direct gateway to all that Milan and the beautiful Italy have to offer. “From the fashion capital of Milan to the amazing beaches and islands in the south, Italy has an endless range of options for our many tourists, always accompanied of course by the great Italian food.” The new flights San Francisco-Milan service operates four times weekly (Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Tuesday) with Air Italy’s new Airbus 330-200 offering 24 seats in Business and 228 in Economy class.

Three Top Tips on Buying Your First Car

As soon as you pass your driving test, all you want to do is get out on the roads in your very own car. As exciting as this time may be, however, it’s still highly beneficial to exercise a bit of caution and patience. When it comes to buying your first motor there’s nothing smart about rushing in– doing so will see you face more problems further down the road.

Exercising caution doesn’t mean being inactive when it comes to finding the perfect car for you, though. You should still be proactive at this time, and you should still try to set up your life as a driver in the most fruitful way possible. To find three top tips on how to buy your first car in the right way, read on.

1. Sort out the financial aspects of the venture

Before you do anything else in your car-buying venture, you need to work out your budget as well as how much you are willing to spend. This is essential because it’ll stop your spending from spiraling out of control, no it’ll help you avoid paying too little and then having to face any buying regrets further down the line.

You also have to take future running costs into account. It’s no good just factoring the cost of the car into your financial plans. You also have to deliberate insuring the vehicle, getting it taxed, getting it tested, and then having work done to it to ensure it is roadworthy.

Something else that you must consider is how you are going to pay for your car. Are you able to buy the car outright, or will you be going down the financing route? Regarding the latter, if you wish to take out a car loan to cover your bill, then you should check out the best auto loans at Crediful.com. Doing so will help you make the most informed decision on the matter possible.

2. Be scrupulous when it comes to checking your chosen car

You may think that you have found the perfect car for you, but that might not necessarily be the case. Any vehicle can be made to look and sound good on the outside, but you cannot commit to anything until you’ve meticulously checked that your chosen car is in good working order. That means checking to ensure that the quality of your car is in keeping with its age, its model, and the number of miles it has to run; this means ensuring that the car can carry out all functions and purposes expected of it; and this means it matches its descriptions exactly. If you can’t perform these tests yourself, then have a trusted mechanic carry them out for you. Only then will any underlying problems with the car be unearthed, and only when these troubles are unearthed can you stop them from becoming actual headaches of yours.

If you want your first car to truly help you in your quest to grow as a driver, then it needs to be in full working order. Taking the above advice is the first step, but there is something else that you must do: take it for a spin. Only when you get behind the wheel yourself can you get a feel for the car’s capabilities. When you take it for a ride, you should test the clutch and the brakes to ensure they do not feel worn, you should head to a road where you can hit at least 60mph to ensure it is capable of high-speed driving, and you should make sure that the steering wheel does not vibrate while you drive.

3. Don’t trust everybody’s advice

As an inexperienced car owner, you will experience plenty of people sticking their nose into your car-buying business. The family members and friends of yours who own their own cars will try to give you an insight into car buying — their advice might come with the best of intentions, but they don’t know your situation quite like you do. There will even be car dealers out there who try to push you towards certain buys — the advice they give will be very much designed to sway you towards lining their pockets. This all means that the only person that you can really trust in this situation is yourself, and you’re the only one who can bring about the best results for you.

 

Your first car will always remain a favorite of yours, even after many years (and cars) have gone by. Be sure you invest in a car that’ll last for many years so that you do not have to worry about further expenses.

NAWAS Release New Track: “She Knows”

Just today, Louisiana-bred, Nashville-based trio NAWAS release a new track “She Knows” vial all digital partners. It is available to stream and download HERE.

The sleek, soulful track was written by NAWAS and produced by Grammy Producer of the Year nominee John Hill (Portugal, The Man, Demi Lovato)

“She Knows” is the first new music from NAWAS since the band released its debut EP Trouble last year, which followed in the wake of their well-received singles “Wrong,” “So Low,” “Make It Work,” and “Who Are You.”

“‘She Knows’ is a new direction for us as a band. After touring last year and receiving so much encouragement and support from fans and listeners, we were excited to get back in the studio and work with John Hill, who brought out new musical elements in us that fit our desires perfectly,” says front man Jake Nawas.

Brilliantly mashing up elements of electronic music, hip-hop, and R&B, NAWAS sound is built around Jake Nawas, shape-shifting vocals, Ben McDaniel’s crystalling guitar work, and Joey Gonzales powerful yet minimalist drumming. Bringing rule-breaking originality to their silken production, NAWAS push the limits of pop with daring and darkly charged lyrics that lend each track an unforgettable depth.

A video for “She Knows” will be released in the coming weeks, followed by more new music throughout the fall.

What critics are saying about NAWAS:

“‘So Low’ is beautifully produced with smooth beats and an R&B-esque tempo. The direct, contemplative lyrics are delivered in (Jake Nawas) bewitchingly androgynous falsetto”FADER

“(NAWAS is) primed and ready to rattle speaker systems.”EARMILK

“‘Wrong’ is a dense, sparkly track featuring heavy bass and fluid guitar riffs that find the medium & between Prince’s androgynous melodies and Calvin Harris’ euphoric bangers.”SPIN

“‘Who Are You’ is as inspired as it is excitingly new. Front-man Jake Nawas’ androgynous singing is on fire on this track, and the instrumentals backing him up are as epic as they are illustrious. ‘Who Are You’ is exactly what you’d want from a fun summer song.”BAEBLE

Multi-platinum recording artist, DEV is set to release her sophomore album, I Only See You When I’m Dreamin’ (IOSYWID) September 8, which is available for pre-order now HERE! Fans who pre-order the album will receive two new songs, the sassy-sweet “All I Wanna Do,” and the female anthem “Come At Me.” This will mark DEV’s first album to be released simultaneously to retail and streaming platforms. With a crew of collaborators that include Sarah Hudson (Katy Perry, Halsey, Rita Ora), MNDR, Marko Penn and producers Sam Sumser, Ritual, Isaac Valens and Mike Mac, the album finds Dev reclaiming her bass-heavy hip-pop beats that shot her to chart stardom, but with a reinvigorated sense of singer-songwriter swagger.

“All I Wanna Do” prompts the familiar Dev-like bounce, while lyrically the track ventures into Minaj-worthy raunch, but it’s Dev’s vocals and harmonies that shine through the sass. “The balance of how bouncy it is, but with how sexy and girly the lyrics and melody are fit really well,” Dev says of the track. “Usually a lot of male driven songs will usually be like ‘I wanna F you!’ so this will be so fun to perform from my point of view.” The additional release, “Come at Me” is somewhat of a yin to “All I Wanna Do”’s yang. Lyrically, Dev urges a “don’t-take-any-BS” attitude over a highly catchy melody.

In it’s entirety, IOSYWID, serves as ode to Dev’s past—the good, the bad, the fun and the sad. Inspired by dreams and thoughts about those who she has since lost touch with, the vibe of the album radiates a theme of self-reflection from her current perspective. Dev takes listeners on a full-circle journey from late night sexting (“Drunk Texting” – OUT Thursday 8/4!) to piano-laden heartbreak (“Alone Again”)

This full-length album follows Dev’s break-out 2012 debut album, The Night the Sun Came Up, which features the platinum “In the Dark,” and landed her critical acclaim, spots on influential end-of-year lists, numerous brand syncs and commercial success. In 2013 and 2014 she released two complimenting EPs, Bittersweet July Part I and Bittersweet July Part II. 2016 saw the release and success of “#1” f/ Nef the Pharoah, which peaked at #15 on the rhythmic radio chart. With over 350M video views, a Billboard #1 hit, multi-platinum & gold certified song successes, and countless collaborations, IOSYWID promises to propel Dev as the sleek, speak-sing, pop pioneer of her generation.

Q&A’s

 

Tell us about your new album. How did it come together? Who did you work with?

  • My new album! It’s called I Only See You When I’m Dreamin’ and I had an awesome opportunity to work with a bunch of different people on this project. Amazing artists, writers and producers. Everyone involved in this album helped to push me out of my comfort zones and create everything I could’ve wanted. I had such a specific vision for this project. I was having vivid dreams of someone who I no longer speak to and these songs reflect that person and specific moments of my past. I’m so happy with the overall outcome and I’m so excited for everyone to listen!! Shout out to Marko Penn, Isaac Valens, The 87’s, MNDR & Rey Reel

—Do you have a favorite track or tracks on the album? Why?

I love them all for different reasons! There’s some slaps, some with more emotional vibes and even a couple voice notes from people close to me. It was a process of gathering these songs over the course of two years so they’re all special to me. 

 

—It’s been 5 years since your debut album. Since then you’ve put out some mixtape EPs and singles. Why the long gap in between LPs?   

  • Honestly, the timing never felt right to release album 2 until now. I had been through a lawsuit for a year and a half where I couldn’t release music, my daughter was born with a gnarly birth defect that had us living in and out of the hospital, I never stopped touring and I was in the studio a bunch, so everything felt very intense for a few years. I needed to keep living, experiencing and finally come around to putting together songs that felt right. I had the opportunity coming off of having successful songs in the past to be true to myself and be patient. And one day the list of songs came together, the title and I knew it was right!

—How have you changed since your debut album? Musically and personally?

  • I’ve grown up a bit since my first project. I’ve grown more aware and appreciative of life and opportunity. I still love to pop bottles though lol! But I think the lessons I’ve learned in the past 5 years have been crucial to me becoming the BEST ME & I’m getting there. 

—How do you think your fans will react to this new body of music? And do you feel like it’s different from the previous music you’ve put out?    

  • I hope they’ll love it! I hope it makes them happy and want to have a good time! I think this project isn’t as “dancey” if you will – as my first project, but the core of who I am is still very present. Times have changed and music continues to change, so there’s obvious differences, but it’s still allllllll me!

 

—Can fans expect to see you on tour soon?

  • Yes! I’ll be announcing dates very soon! I can’t wait to get back on the road. 

 
—Any fun stories from the studio you can share?

  • So many fun times recording this project! I’ll never forget the night I was working on ‘come at me’ and when I was finished we opened all the doors to the outside are and played it super loud and I remember feeling infinite. All of a sudden all the crazy shit I went through in the past 5 years didn’t matter/we’re okay. I felt strong. I’m sure the neighbors hated that I played it 100 times haha but I couldn’t help it. It was awesome. That feeling is why I make music, it’s pretty indescribable. 

—What are the most important lessons you have learned on your journey in the music industry?

  • The most important lessons: stay true to yourself, no one else can ever be you even if they try! Surround yourself with the right people, people who believe in you even when you might slightly question yourself. Work hard and then work even harder. And live in the moment! Music is a magical thing. 

—Any particular people you’d like to collaborate with in the future?  

  • Robyn. Karen O. Nelly Furtado. Gwen Stefani. Flume. Mnek. Mo. I don’t know I’m a fan of so many people! 

—Describe the sound of the new album.

  •  It’s light. Wild. Fun. Top down on an unexpected road trip type album.
