In the nearly five decades since, the #RubiksCube has become one of the most enduring, beguiling, maddening and absorbing puzzles ever created. More than 350 million cubes have sold globally; if you include knockoffs, the number is far higher. They captivate computer #programmers, #philosophers and #artists. Hundreds of books, promising speed-solving strategies, analyzing cube design principles or exploring their philosophical significance, have been published. The cube came to embody “much more than just a puzzle,” the cognitive scientist Douglas Hofstadter wrote in 1981. “It is an ingenious mechanical #invention, a pastime, a #learning tool, a source of metaphors, an #inspiration.” #ErnoRubik #Budapest #Hungary https://buff.ly/3hM9v1R

“The system they came up with was rather genius. As the planes could carry cargo pallets, the engineers built a series of pallets that had six seats and an aisle, that could be loaded through the cargo door and then rolled down to the cabin into position. For the overhead bins, the crews installed them during the same night and installed at the rear of the five aircraft two permanent toilets.”

I finally found that service in Otter.ai, a free voice recording app that offers automatic transcription. More specifically, according to their “About Us” page, “Otter.ai creates technologies and

    “Disability is in fact the inability to make progress and achievements.

    I plan to conduct my research under the guidance of the expert faculty at UNC Greensboro to ascertain the significance of education in preparing entrepreneurs to conquer challenges that they will face in the future and to design strategies that enable them to do so. While most existing literature seeks to understand how and why entrepreneurs innovate, it has often neglected the role of education and the significance of the environment in which entrepreneurs operate.
