By 2050, an expected rise in the world’s population will drive the need for a 60% increase in agricultural production. Precision agriculture, which uses data-driven technologies, is highly likely to become the norm. ESRI reports precision agriculture first came about in the 1980s, but the practice’s efficient resource distribution and increase in production will be instrumental to the farming industry.
Long before the coronavirus made it necessary to shift from the traditional classroom to remote learning, distance learning was both a concept and a practice in K-12 education. Throughout its early 1900s introduction using instructional films and radio programs to its current set of online tools, remote learning has maintained the goal of delivering instruction into students’ homes. Although K-12 remote learning can facilitate teaching when in-person instruction is not feasible, many have expressed concerns over its effectiveness as a full-time substitute.

Our Loup City, Nebraska store team recently facilitated the donation of homemade cinnamon rolls and iced coffee to healthcare workers at Rose Lane Nursing Home.

The delivery was coordinated with Rose Lane’s Director of Nursing, Andrea Obermiller.
School districts in rural communities can face significant challenges in the age of the digital classroom. Education Dive reports that four percent of public schools do not have high-speed or broadband internet connections. The majority of these schools are in rural communities. While four percent does not sound substantial, the problem is compounded by the fact that many of these schools’ students do not have broadband internet access at home.
More consumers are becoming concerned about the security of their data, especially personal information that is exchanged with businesses. The percentage of consumers who believe that they’ve lost the ability to control how their data is collected and used has been in the 80th percentile since 1999, according to Deloitte Insights. That figure spiked as high as 90 percent in 2014.
At Viaero, our goal is to provide our customers with a personalized experience, something our competitors don’t often do to the same extent. Bill Kubic, one of the top members of our e-commerce sales team believes this personalized experience makes a significant difference. He says “Viaero really sends the message that we value you. A big company saying that is a big deal.”
Two situations present the opportunity to place children in danger every day, according to Cora Linker, Director of Supply Chain Operations for Viaero Wireless. The first is placing them in a car and the second is exposing them to what’s on the internet. While smartphones are only one of the ways kids can get access to the internet, phones pose a real risk of being exposed to inappropriate and harmful content.
