MFA Design and Technology: Studio-Based Master’s

The expansive nature of the MFA Design and Technology program attracts students of diverse backgrounds. Bootcamp is an experience unique to the MFA DT program at Parsons and has, over the years, become a rite of passage into the program. Instruction is divided into three units-Design, Web, and Code-taught by second-year MFA DT students who have earned teaching fellowships. As a pre-enrollment program, Bootcamp carries 0 credits, which means that it does not qualify for regular financial aid but does allow the program to be offered at a fraction of what an equivalent credit-bearing program would cost. You’ll also become familiar with the city and the school that are home to MFA DT. Though the experience is considerably different from that of an academic semester, Bootcamp will give you a taste of the culture that defines MFA Design and Technology and prepare you to dive headfirst into your studies.

Reasearch Paper: Technology

Of the many reasons for America’s prosperity, technology played one of the most vital parts in bringing the great economic and cultural prosperity that America experienced during the 1920s. The radio became an instant success among the American public. Radio advertisements quickly followed the outburst of radio popularity. According to Stevenson, radio advertising did not help the American public to become more open-minded. Even though radio had brought the nation together as a whole, it also had the unfortunate side effect of making people of the 1920s more close-minded, ignorant, and disillusioned.

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit from a group of drivers challenging a new Seattle law that will allow ride-hailing drivers to unionize, according to Geekwire. The judge also lifted an injunction on the law that stemmed from a similar lawsuit. Why it matters: As independent contractors, drivers for services like Uber and Lyft can’t unionize and bargain collectively. The companies have resisted most labor regulations or restrictions when it comes to drivers, including benefits and fingerprinting requirements. Uber unsuccessfully tried to challenge the law earlier this year. The lawsuit was filed by a group of drivers who claimed that “Seattle’s law violates federal labor law as well as their First Amendment rights of free speech and freedom of association by forcing them to unionize and pay dues,” as Geekwire notes. The ride-hailing companies will now have to hand over contact information for their drivers so that labor organizations that want to potentially represent them can contact them to garner support for a union vote. “The original ordinance passed by the City Council was never about benefiting drivers, but about helping Teamsters and taxi companies,” said Uber Pacific Northwest general manager Brooke Steger. “Lyft continues to believe this ordinance could undermine the flexibility of drivers to choose when, where and for how long they drive – the very things that make Lyft so attractive to drivers and useful for passengers,” said Lyft in a statement. The story has been updated with a statement from Uber.
