  Don’t know how you do it: But you do it, dear reader, and once more you’ve cleared the hurdles of a busy workweek and earned another springtime respite. Well played. Let freedom ring: It’s June 14 out there, and to our many readers in Malawi, a very happy (and similarly well-earned) Freedom Day. Here in the States, June 14 is quite the patriotic date also, bringing both Flag Day – commemorating the 1777 adoption…

No. 405: On Farmingdale State’s new feeder, Stony Brook’s super switch and Adelphi’s major minor upgrade

  Cold open: Beware the Ides of March, dear reader – oh, wait, it’s the Ides of May. It only feels like March. But it’s actually May 15 out there, midpoint of the month, two-thirds of the way through spring and halfway home in this latest (chilly) week of socioeconomic innovation. For the record, as of Tuesday afternoon, the Weather Channel was forecasting that high temperatures on Long Island wouldn’t exceed 70 degrees until the…


No. 404: Chembio’s Brazilian breakthrough, fertile ground in Commack and a West Coast cameo – plus, scampi for all!

  Weekend Avenger: Welcome to Friday, dear readers, and now that the “Endgame” spoiler ban is officially lifted, welcome back to everyone previously dusted by the Thanos Snap.

No. 402: A Machiavellian mashup featuring NYIT grants, Farmingdale State fairs and ‘Breezy’ Bob Catell

  You made it: Welcome to Friday, friends, and the finale of another busy workweek. It’s May 3 out there, and as full-blooded advocacy journalists, we’re proud to come to you on World Press Freedom Day, wherein the United Nations recognizes that no democracy is complete without a free and transparent information flow. Creepy and kooky: Here in the States, it’s also the seventh-annual National Paranormal Day. Mysterious: It’s also National Two Different Colored Shoes…


No. 401: Manufacturing optimism, planning to win and crusading in capes – plus, the importance of summer schooling 

  May day! Don’t panic, dear readers – it’s merely the first of May and the midpoint of another busy week of socioeconomic innovation (being Wednesday and all). For the record, with a long (and sometimes dark) history extending back thousands of years, May Day is not all maypoles and pies.
