Computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming systems. In a short period of time — in some cases, a span of just a couple of years — we’ve gone from marveling at these devices to demanding that companies make them better, faster, more portable. Research from a team of scientists at the University of Nebraska could give the people what they want, and then some. Their work has the potential to significantly improve the speed, capacity and dependability of device memory through the use of what are called “ferroelectric tunnel junctions.” As explained by Dr. Alexei Gruverman, a Nebraska physics professor and co-author
Another week is in the books, and it was another opportunity for Wisconsin to prove its case as the Big Ten's runaway leader.
After Indiana beat Minnesota on Sunday night, Indiana coach Tom Crean met with reporters as he usually does. But this time he had a special friend attend the session with him. Bloomington native Brian Jones is an Indiana Hoosiers basketball fan and suffers from ALS. He is on a ventilator and in hospice care. “Brian Jones is a model of perseverance,” Crean told the room. Crean visited Jones a few weeks ago and spoke about how much Jones inspires him. Watch it all in the video in this post. Indiana beat Minnesota, 90-71, behind a school-record 18 3-pointers, including six by James

Coaching, no doubt, is frustrating and stressful. It’s nothing compared to watching your son coach. At least, that’s the indication Doug Collins gave during the Iowa-Northwestern game Sunday afternoon. Collins, the former NBA coach and father of Northwestern coach Chris Collins, was a nervous wreck in the final moments of regulation, and the BTN cameras caught much of it. Collins couldn’t sit still. At times, he couldn’t even watch, putting his head in his hands. So is the life of the father of a coach whose team has no shortage of agonizing defeats this Big Ten season. Those were Collins’
Indiana beat Minnesota 90-71 to cap off a busy day of Big Ten hoops Sunday. James Blackmon Jr. had 24 points and seven rebounds for the Hoosiers, who made school-record 18 3-pointers.
Nebraska's Terran Petteway said Friday he hasn't been himself on the basketball court lately because he's worried about his mother, who is undergoing treatment for cancer in Texas.
Penn State coach Pat Chambers continues to have issues with Big Ten officiating. Following Saturday night’s 76-73 loss vs. No. 19 Maryland, Chambers was irate about an offensive foul called with 1:50 left in a game. The Terrapins led, 70-68, when Penn State center Jordan Dickerson set a screen and appeared to be pulled down by Maryland forward Evan Smotrycz. However, officials whistled Dickerson for an offensive foul–his fifth of the game. Maryland subsequently scored on a layup to push its lead to four. “That was the worst call I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” Chambers said after the
Every Big Ten school has produced leaders who have reached the pinnacle of their professions, whether business, government, science and technology, medicine or education. High Profile takes a look at how these alums rose to the top of their field. From policy debates to plane crashes, Dave McConnell has been voice of record in the Beltway for decades. Since 1965, McConnell has worked for Washington’s Top News (WTOP) radio station. Starting out as a general field reporter, he’s been the station’s congressional correspondent since 1981, and today he’s the only person on the radio doing that full-time. It’s somewhat surprising,
There were so many puns following Denzel Valentine's game-winning triple in the final seconds to lift Michigan State past No. 21 Ohio State on Sunday, and rightfully so.
