Data-fluid teams tackle sports analytics

Data is flowing everywhere, 24/7, from tens of billions of connected devices along the Internet of Things (IoT). But it’s just loose bits of information — albeit with tremendous potential for insight — until it is properly analyzed. Sports is no exception to the arenas that have embraced data analytics.

Something’s in the air: It’s nanoplastic pollution

The tiny bits of plastic that wear off bottles, plastic bags, automotive parts and even cosmetics get into the soil and the water supply. They disrupt chemical cycles, throw off ecosystem health and pollute environments both marine and terrestrial. They eventually also get into the air, where they can damage lungs much more effectively.
