It’s almost daily….a news blast from Rice University about a research project by students there, and not social studies, these are projects of engineering, design, nanotechnology, chemistry, projects that have viability in the marketplace.  On Houston’s Morning News Matt Patrick talked to one of the students working on what they’re dubbing the Jedi putter. Every golfer is going to want one of those.

It also grabbed my interest that Rice students have solved a problem for Waste Management, Inc. , a matter of  dumpsters.  Manufactured in Asia, the bulky dumpster shapes, allow for only 8 per shipping container.  That’s freight for a lot of empty space.  The Rice team redesigned fully-functional dumpsters and now 42 will fit in a single shipping container. No empty space there or in those students’ heads.
