Age of Coronavirus: Grading Our Social Distance Through Smartphones

A very interesting post featuring Professor William Staples, among others, from the University about using smartphone data to grade social distancing.

A company named Unacast is tapping location data from mobile phones to track our social distancing efforts during the coronavirus outbreak.

The University of Kansas

During the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Kansas’ motto “Ad astra per aspera,” Latin for “To the stars through difficulties,” seems more poignant than ever. John James Ingalls, who coined the motto in 1861, said, “The aspiration of Kansas is to reach the unattainable; its dream is the realization of the impossible.“ 🌻

Today is the statewide tornado drill. Every building has instructions posted in a central location (and usually most stairwells) on where to go to stay safe in the event of severe weather.

This is a test. This is only a test.

With the beginning signs of spring all around, Laurie White, the ISB Facility Manager, is not only keeping safety a priority in the labs but also preparing occupants for building evacuations and the threat of severe weather. To coincide with KU's test of the emergency alert system today, Laurie showed the occupants where the safest and potentially most dangerous places are to be in ISB in the event of a tornado.

Thank you, Laurie, as it's always a good reminder with the severe weather season almost here!
