Facing Illness With Art: 4 Powerful Artworks That Reveal Artists’ Experiences With Breast Cancer

Noble Horvath

Art has long provided a way to explore some of life’s most deeply personal subjects, including sex, intimacy, disease, and death. Over the years, artworks have opened the way for important conversations on such themes, galvanizing viewers and reminding us of all the ways we are connected.  

The highly personal experience of breast cancer has been a topic that artists have addressed in profound ways—beginning at a time when the subject was not yet widely discussed. For many years, lack of information and transparency around the disease left women all over the world without proper knowledge of how to combat it. Countless women succumbed to unnecessary death as a result.

Noble Horvath

The second weekend in October brought unprecedented darkness to Liberty’s campus. A power outage stretched from South Tower to Green Hall at approximately 12 a.m. Friday. The lights eventually came back at around 8:15 that morning, a delay that cancelled the first classes of the day. 

According to Senior Vice President of Facilities Management Charles Spence, the cause of the power outage early Friday morning was due to a failure in the main feeder cable from the Appalachian Electric Power Company (AEP).

The Secret of Progressive Web Apps: Boosting Google Rankings Via Better Customer Experiences

Noble Horvath

At its heart, a progressive web app (PWA) is a website that functions like a native app on a shoppers’ device. Although simple in concept, PWAs have the potential to massively improve a retailer’s operations, from shortening website load times to boosting natural Google search ranking, according to the Progressive Web Apps: The Best Kept Tech ‘Secret’ In Retail session at the 2020 Retail Innovation Conference.

On average, PWAs are 43% faster than traditional
websites, according to data from Salesforce. This acceleration is achieved by
decoupling the business backend from what shoppers see on the frontend. While a
traditional website needs to calculate a response every time a page loads, a
PWA sends its first response in the form a PWA, which is then available on the
user’s device, making subsequent responses much easier.

However, while improved speed is a significant benefit, the
biggest secret of PWAs may
