Transit and Training Crucial to Connecting Unemployed with Jobs

spatial_skills_cover_cropped.jpg

According to a new University of Minnesota study, the mismatch between unemployed workers and job vacancies is a serious problem in the Twin Cities region and it appears to have worsened since the turn of the millennium. The biggest concentrations of unemployed workers lack fast or frequent transit service to some of the richest concentrations of job vacancies, particularly vacancies in the south and southwest metro.

How America’s Electric Utilities Can Speed Recovery From Cyber-Induced Blackouts

A new study by Johns Hopkins APL/Dr. Paul Stockton, “Superstorm Sandy: Implications for Designing a Post-Cyber Attack Power Restoration System,” examines the novel challenges of a cyber attack, and explores how utilities can ramp up the progress they are already making against increasingly severe cyber threats.

In Emergencies, Should You Trust a Robot?

In emergencies, people may trust robots too much for their own safety, a new study suggests. In a mock building fire, test subjects followed instructions from an “Emergency Guide Robot” even after the machine had proven itself unreliable – and after some participants were told that robot had broken down.

Study: California Blowout Led to Largest U.S. Methane Release Ever

The Aliso Canyon natural gas well blowout, first reported on Oct. 23, 2015, released over 100,000 tons of the powerful greenhouse gas methane before the well was sealed on Feb. 11, according to the first study of the accident published today in the journal Science. The results confirm that Aliso Canyon is the largest methane leak in U.S. history.

Urban Sprawl Stunts Upward Mobility, U Study Finds

2_SanJose.jpeg

A recent study by University of Utah Department of City & Metropolitan Planning professor Reid Ewing and his colleagues in Utah, Texas and Louisiana, tested the relationship between urban sprawl and upward mobility for metropolitan areas in the United States. The study examined potential pathways through which sprawl may have an effect on mobility and uses mathematical models to account for both direct and indirect effects of sprawl on upward mobility.
