| By: Lorian Hopcus
The average distribution firm carries between 10 and 30 percent more inventory than needed. The result? Millions of dollars are wasted that could be reinvested in competitive processes like new services or new product offerings. Distributors are facing forces of change that range from nontraditional competitors like Amazon who have superior technology, human capital and customer experience. Changing the way one goes to market requires new ways of thinking, innovative business models and creative leadership.

Most people might think of computer storage, like an external hard drive or flash drive, as something static that you can leave sitting somewhere indefinitely without issue. In reality, that’s not the case. For instance, data is stored in flash drives by capturing electrons in cells, and over time those electrons can escape for a variety of reasons, creating errors in the data or corrupting the data altogether. Dr. Anxiao (Andrew) Jiang, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, said even the ambient room temperature can affect data storage.

NSSPI researchers examine novel solutions to the problem of reprocessing used nuclear fuel

March 8, 2018
| By: Kelley Ragusa
The U.S. has produced more than 70,000 metric tons of used nuclear fuel over the past 60 years from nuclear power generation and there are no large-scale reprocessing methods. Andrew Wilcox and his advisor Dr. Jonathan Burns, an associate research scientist at the Center for Nuclear Security Science & Policy Initiatives are working to explore a simple reprocessing technique called co-crystallization to separate these elements, which could be reused as fuel, from the remaining used nuclear fuel.
