A South Jersey football coach claims he was fired because he didn’t have enough white players on his roster.
Camden Catholic High School informed Nick Strom on Friday that his contract as a history teacher would not be renewed for next year. Strom was asked to resign from his posts as head football and golf coach and was fired Monday night.
Strom says he was directed by Camden Catholic’s president Mary Whipkey to give white players more time on the field in order to “connect with the school’s alumni.” Whipkey denied this however, saying she never discussed race with him.
Strom’s attorney confirmed his client learned in a letter Friday that he was being let go for violating campus dress code, confronting a fellow teacher in front of students and leaving class early to prepare for golf practice. Some parents at the school are outraged over the firing and are planning a private meeting Tuesday night to discuss it.
Blockchain is the biggest buzzword of the year. However, we are just now beginning to see what silly creative ways will this technology be applied. The newest example from China is a blockchain-based toothbrush by Shenzhen-based 32Teeth, currently crowdfunding the project through the JD Finance platform.
The company aims to make your teeth really clean by applying not only blockchain technology, but also facial recognition, sensors, and big data. If the company delivers its promise, the toothbrush is likely to become a favorite among OCD suffererssuperheroes. The toothbrush app offers precise identification of 16 tooth surface cleanliness levels, analyzes users’ brushing activity data, and offers a powerful intelligent reminder. It even has AR function which gives you an inside look (literally) into how you brush your teeth.
Researchers have developed an ultrathin and flexible membrane, less than a thousandth of a millimeter thick, that can be placed onto a contact lens, enabling the wearer to essentially shoot lasers from their eyes.
The membrane, which was developed by scientists from the University of St Andrews in Scotland, is made from an organic semiconducting polymer—a broad class of materials that consist of many repeated chains of molecular units. It emits very low-powered laser light when illuminated by another laser.
Each membrane is able to produce a unique “barcode”—a well-defined series of laser beams in the form of sharp lines. This could have applications in identification technology as a kind of wearable security tag, according to the researchers.
