For athletes in certain sports, access to real, practical training can very much depend on the season. Take beach volleyball, for example. Or alpine racing. For the first, you'll need summer. For the second, typically winter is best.
We can all agree that growing our own fruits and vegetables is a great way to save money and maintain a healthy diet. So why isn't gardening more popular?
In the latest rankings from U.S. News & World Report, released January 10, 2017, the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering maintained its spot in the top twenty-five schools in the country in the categories of Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs and Best Online Graduate Computer...
On September 12, 2008, a Metrolink commuter train and a freight train collided in Los Angeles, California, killing twenty-five people and injuring many more. A month later, President George W. Bush singed into law the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008.
Johns Hopkins Engineering recently launched a new master's degree program in data science that students can complete online.
The curriculum blends computer science and applied mathematics, and prepares students to analyze relationships in complicated data sets. To earn the master's degree, students will complete ten courses in subjects like data visualization, cloud computing, and statistical models.
Satellites placed in geostationary Earth orbits are necessary for everything from financial transactions to weather forecasting.
As a quick definition, GEOs are the orbits that hover above the equator. They move in sync with the Earth's rotation. So when an object (i.e., a man-made satellite) is placed into a GEO, it appears motionless to those of us here on the ground.
Incidents involving roadside and under-road improvised explosive devices remain a serious threat. As the operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have shown, IED blasts often result in horrific injuries, fatalities, and damages to military vehicles.
Johns Hopkins Engineering recently launched a new master's degree program in financial mathematics that can be completed online.
