Corporate scholarships for high school senior Printer Friendly Version
Scholarships for college awarded to high school students usually come from colleges themselves or philanthropic sources. One important stakeholder in having a well-educated workforce is corporate America. Companies should sponsor prestigous college scholarships for promising students as they are graduating from high school for a commitment to work for the company for a certain period of time. The military does this effectively through the academies and ROTC. Corporations need to contribute to make a college education and good job seem more glamorous.
Reward: More good students in college who don't have to work too much to stay there.

Suburban Business Units Printer Friendly Version
Suggesting that each suburb in a city should be run as a strategic business unit, with the individual tax collection or a large percentage of it going towards meeting local development needs like education system and unemployment within the same suburb, consequently the more the employement the more the spending budget would increase for the suburb, giving a incentive to the corporator running the suburb to ensure higher employment.
The corporate tax collection from the suburb with a small % retained the rest going to the central pool.
This system could be a prevalent one but from where I come from....we could do with such administration.
Reward: Tell me ways to make it workable

Phone Interface with Laptop Printer Friendly Version
So this morning, I was typing in my long password into my work laptop, reading from my phone's screen, and I thought, "wouldn't it be good if I could just hold up my phone to the laptop and send the password?"
Neither has RFID/NFC so that's not going to happen, unless I could somehow use the phone's camera flash to send data to the laptop's webcam. I could "flash my data" over - maybe so quick my human eye wouldn't see anything but a brief flash.
Maybe I could use this to unlock my laptop too.
The flash could be encrypted in case of interception.
Yes, I know there's Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and there even used to be infrared. But in a corporate environment these are generally not available or permitted.
This would provide another choice. I like choices.
Not sure if this is even physically possible or practical, but here it is. My first idea.
Reward: Yes, the kudos knowing my idea amounted to something would be great, but a free app would be nice too.
