But what pollution, how much and where is it coming from? Those are murky questions that may soon be cleared up with the help of a super high-tech computer modeling system run by Florida International University.

The modeling technology, which can generate simulations in just a few minutes as opposed to days, promises to help scientists and government agencies understand how pollutants like phosphorus and nitrogen are transported through canals into the bay, and the harmful effects they create.

Knowing how water and pollution circulates is crucial to any project to improve water quality in Miami’s backyard paradise, said Henry Briceno, a professor at the Institute of Environment at Florida International University (FIU).

“What we need is a way to assess

2020 Is America’s High-Tech Election

Everyone has been calling this presidential election historic. But it may be historic for another reason that the pundits and the media are missing. In 2020 we have reached a tipping point in determining how and where America will face the challenge of winning the high-tech frontier, and building its leadership in the technologies that will shape the 21st century. 

Whoever leads the next administration will be duty bound to make sure these advanced technologies work to America’s favor, and serve our national interest as well as the interests of our allies. In the end, what’s at stake is ensuring that the technologies that power our world, and that will shape future worlds, serve the cause of freedom not tyranny. 

Above all, that means making sure that the United States and its allies, and not China, win that high-tech war for the future.  

At the basic level, that means
