APDN's Technology Could Prevent Cheating on Standardized Tests

Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (APDN-OTC.BB) announced today that it was invited by the Chairman of the New York Senate Higher Education Committee to speak about APDN’s digitalDNA™ technology to assist in blocking cheating on standardized tests, such as the SAT college entrance exam. Dr. James Hayward, President and CEO of Applied DNA Sciences, Inc., is expected to discuss how the Company’s digitalDNA technology can aid in preventing cheating.

This comes on the heels of a scandal discovered last November when dozens of individuals were arrested on Long Island—largely from Long Island's North Shore schools—and paid to take the SAT test for others. At least four test-takers have been accused of accepting cash payments of between $500 to $3,600.

Nanotechnology & the Built Environment

Posted by Karen Goldfarb

January 6, 2012 at 3:23 PM

Worldwide population growth, continued geopolitical conflict in oil-producing regions, volatile energy prices, and heightened concerns of climate change are fueling demands for energy efficiency—specifically for products that can cut energy consumption and costs, reduce dependence on oil, and reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other harmful greenhouse gases. According to Inc. Magazine, commercial and residential buildings account for nearly 40% of energy used in the U.S., with an estimated 52% of CO2 emissions tied specifically to the built environment. Thus, “greening up” the U.S.’s buildings, roads, and other infrastructure represents a big challenge and, concurrently, a big opportunity going forward that we here at Crystal Research Associates are excited to watch.

But the greening of America is not the only trend that we expect to impact U.S. building in the coming years. In parallel with a global movement toward more energy-efficient, sustainable products, much of the infrastructure in the U.S. is reaching the end of its lifecycle, necessitating either repair or new, improved construction. These needs for both greening up U.S. infrastructure as well as for retrofitting the existing built environment are being achieved throughnanotechnology, which is shaping up to become a driving force for innovation and sustainability in the 21st century and beyond. Nanotechnology enables new approaches to solving many of today’s social, economic, environmental, and infrastructure concerns, and in doing so, is changing the landscape of virtually every aspect of the built environment. The potential benefits of energy-saving, ecofriendly, nano-based materials are considerable. Fueled by an array of such startups and new technologies, the global market for green building materials to date has become a $156 billion industry per year.
