A study by the National Fire Protection Association found that from 2013 to 2017, U.S. fire departments responded to an average of more than 354,000 structure fires each year that caused thousands of deaths and injuries.

Further, the U.S. Fire Administration has seen an increase of fire related deaths since 2008. If anything, this shows the sheer importance of those working in the fire safety and security integration fields having the resources needed to innovate on a daily basis.

Our buildings, whether residential or commercial, need to be able to effectively signal danger to occupants so that we begin to see a decline in injuries or […]

Software & Tech Companies are Facing a Crisis

By |December 12th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

The technical skills gap in the U.S. has left more than 700,000 jobs unfilled in our country that, if filled, could potentially pour billions of dollars back into the U.S. economy.

The problem is twofold. On the one hand, businesses are using technology at a rate that we’ve never seen before in our country. This is great news for U.S. businesses and their ability to meet client needs and innovate on a larger scale. However, the rapid increase in tech usage is being met with dramatically low numbers of STEM graduates—leaving absent the talent needed to innovate in order to compete with our foreign competitors.

This dynamic shift certainly does pose a threat to our country, but […]

Automation has been a prime topic in our nation’s political discourse in recent years. As the common doom-and-gloom narrative goes, the rise of automation and corresponding technologies such as AI, robotics, and the internet of things will spell the end of work as we know it, leading to the disruption of labor markets and the displacement of millions of workers.

There is some measure of truth in these predictions, with numerous studies highlighting specific jobs and skill sets that will be automated out of existence. According to a study from the McKinsey Global Institute, occupations that perform “physical activities in highly structured and predictable work environments” (i.e., clerical work, retail, physical labor, etc.) are the most susceptible to automation – and the disappearance of these jobs […]

Published in Des Moines Register

The education system in America still ranks among the middle of the pack globally, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math – the “STEM” fields. 2020 candidates from both parties must seize on the opportunity to show American voters the importance of improving our education system, and the dramatic positive impact this change can bring.

The number of presidential candidates continues to dwindle for the 2020 election, but the issues debated remain the same: Medicare for all, the economy and national security. And although our education system is being discussed in terms of higher education and its costs, a key problem facing our nation’s ability to […]
