Demand for MBAs Continue to Rise

Despite the recent turmoil, the economy is growing at a steady rate. More jobs are being created as companies are expanding domestically and to new markets. Most of these newly created jobs are mid- to top-level management jobs that require specific sets of skills and expertise. Filling these jobs are not always easy, especially since companies have specific needs and requirements to meet as well.

The steady shift has sparked an increase in the number of professionals going back to school. Companies have started giving incentives to employees who are willing to spend the extra time to pursue a business degree, particularly an MBA.

More Courses and Programs

The education landscape is more than ready to meet this increasing demand. Top universities such as Rutgers Online are making their online courses available to more students. These courses are fully accredited and require students to meet the same standards as their offline colleagues. This means graduates can be expected to have the required skills and knowledge to perform well in the job market.

Researchers can predict terrorist behaviors with more than 90 percent accuracy

Government agencies cannot always use social media and telecommunication to uncover the intentions of terrorists as terrorists are now more careful in utilizing these technologies for planning and preparing for attacks. A new framework developed by researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York is able to understand future terrorist behaviors by recognizing patterns in past attacks.

Researchers at Binghamton have proposed a comprehensive new framework, the Networked Pattern Recognition (NEPAR) Framework, by defining the useful patterns of attacks to understand behaviors, to analyze patterns and connections in terrorist activity, to predict terrorists’ future moves, and finally, to prevent and detect potential terrorist behaviors.

‘Good’ bacteria is possible solution to rampant inflammation seen in bowel diseases

Beneficial bacteria may be the key to helping to reverse a cycle of gut inflammation seen in certain inflammatory bowel diseases, University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have found.

In a study published in journal Nature Immunology, researchers led by Jenny P.Y. Ting, PhD, Lineberger member and the William R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Genetics, describe how inflammation can go unchecked in the absence of a certain inflammation inhibitor called NLRP12. In a harmful feedback loop, this inflammation can upset the balance of bacteria living in the gut – part of the community of micro-organisms in the human body known as the microbiome. They found in preclinical models that certain types of “bad” bacteria were more abundant, while there were lower levels of beneficial bugs in the absence of NLRP12. That led to even more inflammation in their models.
