The Google of the Ocean

Published: November-27-2016       Author: Binyamin Zirman

While ships have been sailing the oceans for millennia, until very recently it was literally impossible to know a vessel’s location once it sailed past the range of the radar screen, about 30 miles off shores. The $1 trillion global business of shipping raw materials and finished goods by rail, ship, or plane has lagged most of the modern economy in both transparency and speed, largely skipping the digital overhaul most other industries have undergone. The last “wild west” frontier,... Read more

Published: November-06-2016       Author: Ezra Berman

Roughly five years ago, the social media industry was about to undergo an industry-altering change, a change that many Yeshiva University students would view as for the better. In September of 2011, Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy became famous for creating Snapchat, a revolutionary social media app which allows users to send a disappearing image.

What-er (Water) you doing?

Published: November-06-2016       Author: Binyamin Zirman

Thousands have lived without love, but no one can survive without water. Water is such an essential part of our world (around 70-75 percent of the world is water), our bodies (roughly 70 percent of an adult’s body is made up of water), and our lives (a person can live about a month without food, but only about a week without water).
