Usually, I post to the Student Listserv, but a staff member recently informed me that Staff are interested in knowing what students like to talk about and where they get their news. Here is my all time favorite that is popular in corners around campus.

Check out the Morning Brew. It’s free… and includes all of the business news you need, from Wall Street to Silicon Valley, straight to your inbox every morning. Best five minutes to start your day.

Why should you be interested? Keeping up with business news gives you an edge articulating in your network, keeping you relevant and informed of the implications that changes across industries have on each other. The Morning Brew also just happens to have the right amount of tongue in cheek humor to start a great day!

Here’s a free subscription, just for you: morningbrew.com/?kid=3ca948 (Copy/Paste to your browser)

Additional questions or interest in the Morning Brew? Reach out to Onyx Bengston at O_Bengston@ColoradoCollege.edu

You may have heard of Google’s computer program AlphaGo that plays the board game GO and beat a human Go master. Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes? How does a computer program make decisions? Come to one or both of the fearless Friday talks hosted by the math& CS department this week and find out!
On Friday March 9th at 12pm in Tutt science lecture hall(122) we will have a talk titled Artificial Intelligence Algorithms:What Are They And How They Work.

Wednesday, March 14th, 12-2 p.m.
RSVP at tinyurl.com/y8nkwdpu
This is a two-hour lunch-time session geared for both faculty and staff. In the first hour CC grants professionals Tess Powers, Ina Remus and Laura Hines will describe their respective roles on campus and how they serve as resources for the CC community. They will highlight some of the ways the CC community continues to benefit from grants awarded years ago as well as share information on some of the College’s most recent grants. The first hour will conclude with a “Top 10”-style countdown of some of the more common myths of the grants world. In the second hour, attendees will be invited to break into smaller groups to discuss projects/ideas/collaborations that might be suitable for an external grant; this is an opportunity to start brainstorming both for individual projects as well as for possible institutional efforts. Attendees will then spend some time exploring the College’s grants database, Pivot. Anyone with a general interest in grants is welcome – there is no expectation that you will apply for a grant as a result of this session.
