Ontario, Ca—October 14, 2015– Benignant De Eagle Foundation is committed to increase education opportunities in S.T.E.M education for young women. Benignant De Eagle Foundation was founded by Onyema B. Ajuogu, a young woman who understands firsthand how education can positively impact one’s life. Onyema is a passionate woman who has dedicated her life to helping young women further their education and to finding the resources necessary for them to achieve their education goals. The Benignant De Eagle is founded on the fundamental belief that giving a high-quality education to the women of developing nations will bring about immense and powerful change.
- The primary goal is to impact girls and young women worldwide; helping girls and young women from developing nations to receive western-style education, to encouraging S.T.E.M. education around the world. Benignant De Eagle strives to achieve this goal by focusing on six primary goals.
- To bring young women from third world countries to Western schools and universities to study science, technology, engineering and math.
- To encourage and inspire hope in young women and girls in developing countries to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM fields) by hosting STEM workshops which will foster their interest to pursue post-secondary education in STEM fields.
- To be a catalyst for change in how the culture of developing countries views the role of women in the workplace and in society in general.
- To harness the power of education to empower women in developing nations to drive fundamental change in the status of all women in their homelands.
To create supplementary programs that support our students and encourage women to view science, technology, engineering and math as a tool to lift themselves up from poverty and deprivation and help them forge their destinies.
Their first event is November 18, 2015, at National Press Club in Washington DC. Richard Lui, an anchor from MSNBC News, will be honored. Before joining MSNBC, Lui spent five years at CNN Worldwide, most recently with CNN Headline News as the solo anchor of the ten a.m. hour of “Morning Express.” He also led the network’s morning political reporting throughout the 2008 presidential election. Lui anchored and reported on all of CNN Worldwide’s English-language networks including CNN US, CNN International, and HLN.

Baltimore Hacker Space is Crowdfunding
This non-profit technology educational facility is home to many great projects. Projects that people can’t work on at home ( not everyone has a garage). It has been member funded in the past and provided tools and training for anyone wanting to build something special. Their expenses recently went up. Here is what happened in their words. “Recently, our landlord “discovered” a number water bills that he’d missed over the past two years, and he’s passing that expense on to us. So we’ve run the numbers, and our $5,000 goal will keep us financially stable and allow us to focus on community outreach for the next two years. As a 501(c)3 charity, we work to promote growth and learning in our community by providing people a place to learn and work in a positive and collaborative environment. We are sustained by our membership dues. However, we do open up all of our classes and events to non-members. We try to provide at least 2-3 days per week where non-members can come in and work with our facilities.”
It’s all about helping a community resource stay a community resource. You can sponsor a go-cart. You can get T-shirts and even book some time in the shop to work on your ideas. You can have a storm trooper visit you or even pick up a years membership.

International Parcel Couriers Predict That Deliveries Will Start To Track-Down Customers
2015 may well be the year that parcel deliveries go straight to customers or their Cars.
New progresses in GPS and mobile phone tech means parcel deliveries can now be made straight to consumers or right into the boot of their vehicle. The technology that enables your sat-nav, can also be used to direct people and a delivery straight to you. Everything from nutrition to clothing will be able to be delivered to your exact journey’s end. If you’re located in a city, the service might not be just same day delivery, but same hour delivery.
Some firms in the UK already use GPS to deliver parcels such as mislaid keys or laundry to a specific address, within periods being considerably less than an hour at some locations. However, couriers will be able to deliver to the right to the kerb anywhere you are. The same tech that controls Apps such as Find My Phone or Maps on your smartphone can be used to find consumers, so long as they have their phone or Smartwatch on them at the time. This means that there’s no need to postpone what you’re doing or be at a specific place so shoppers can carry on with their day without interruption.
If customers don’t wish their parcel to be delivered directly to them, then their car is also an option. Pick-up locations have proved to be an accepted substitute to home delivery, but, even more suitably, your car could well be a locker on the move, and on wheels. The owner doesn’t really need to be with it to take delivery either. Volvo’s Roam Delivery facility has been trialled magnificently in Sweden in combination with an online grocery supplier and a third party distribution firm. Shopper’s items were delivered right to their own car, which is located in the same way as mentioned above, via GPS, and unlocked and locked again through technology.
The UK seems to now be leading the way with direct deliveries to your car. When customers sign up for the deal a tiny signal transmitter is fixed to their vehicle. This is then used to locate the car and unlock/lock it remotely when the delivery lands. The firm can even track patterns of parking behaviour so as to plan parcel deliveries accordingly. Some people may be worried about security but all the data is time limited and the tracing can be turned off at any time. This kind of service is predicted catch on, with shares in companies rising sharply for those that provide this service. In time hopefully it will spread to international parcel delivery too.
