    Meet Bessie and Sadie Delany. At ages 101 and 103, these resilient African-American sisters have lived through historic events, such as the Civil Rights Movement, Jim Crow laws and women's suffrage. These cultural pioneers never married, stating "we were too smart, too independent for most men" and pursued education and careers during a time when it was unheard of to do so. Their endearing stories are humorous and historical as they invite the audience into their home for an evening of memories in this touching, biographical, two-person play, starring real-life sisters Camille Metoyer Moten and Lanette Metoyer Moore.

    We have all seen it before, the email that makes us do a double-take. It is real? Then, before we know it we have allowed our computer to be compromised by Phishing.

    Phishing is a term that is used to describe the process of tricking a user to give information that would otherwise be unknown. An example usually involves a password reset, or asking for account information of some kind.

    It can also be used to trick a user to click a link, which then takes a user to a malicious web site.

    The Nebraska Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), together with the National Science Foundation, sponsors the Nebraska Engineering, Science, and Technology Internship Program (NESTIP). NESTIP supports placement of student interns in businesses. This cost-share program is intended to facilitate technology transfer between Nebraska higher education and businesses and to encourage applied research that benefits state industries.

    Any business with a location in Nebraska is eligible to participate in NESTIP. Any science, technology, engineering, or math student enrolled in a degree program in one of Nebraska's accredited four-year colleges or universities is eligible. Undergraduate students must have completed at least 65 credit hours to be eligible.

    NESTIP cost-share may not exceed one half of the student's salary and related FICA taxes. The business must provide at least one half of the student's salary and related taxes. The student's salary is determined by the business, but the total NESTIP subsidy will not exceed $5,000 per student per six-month funding period, and a student's salary may be funded for only two consecutive funding periods (totaling twelve months) with the same business. NESTIP cost-share may only be used for student salary and related taxes.

    Please visit the Nebraska EPSCoR web site (https://epscor.nebraska.edu) for all requirements and application forms. Applications are accepted on a continuing basis but early submission is encouraged.
