How underground sensors in Texas will help NASA predict drought and floods
KUT-FM via KWBU-FM
Dr. Todd Caldwell and his team have dug a pit and they’re connecting wires and setting up a tripod monitoring station, but they’ve run into some trouble. "You see the sensors have about a 15 centimeter-long tine that’s thin metal, and we have to push those into the clay when it’s dry. This is kind of set up like a concert," Caldwell says. "So, we have to push really hard to get them in, so we’re struggling a bit right now…" The tines measure the how much water is in the soil. That information travels on buried wires to the tripod. It gathers more data. The monitors will be used to reveal more about global weather patterns as well.

Combined with the fact that the Pew Research Center reported in 2010 that 58 percent of U.S. Internet users research products and services online, it’s easy to see why having a branded content strategy is important. Unfortunately, a lot of the content being created today is — well, terrible. It’s being put out without targeting, without strategy, and without quality control.
