Sealed With Love
Her clients include Tiffany & Company, Estée Lauder, The New Yorker and others, but this month, her heart was with the U.S. Postal Service.
Alumna Elizabeth Q. Cassetti designed this year's limited edition Love stamp.
"Cut Paper Heart" was inspired by folk art traditions. Cassetti — whose portfolio includes hundreds of valentines — finds inspiration in many forms, including Andrew Carnegie.

Want to improve a young child's early number skills? Break out the board games.
A study co-published by CMU Professor Robert Siegler finds that parents can make a small change in playing board games with numbered spaces to increase children's learning.
It's all in the counting method.
The findings were published shortly after CMU launched the Simon Initiative to accelerate the use of learning science and technology to improve student learning.

Walt Disney Imagineering
Imagine magical, whispering trees in Thailand and Peru that allow people to talk to each other half a world apart.
This idea, part of a project titled "Antipode," earned CMU students the top prize in a Walt Disney Imagineering competition.
Teams were tasked with selecting large, densely populated urban areas and designing an experience for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.
The CMU students proposed a two-week cultural exchange festival unfolding simultaneously in Bangkok, Thailand, and Lima, Peru, where trees serve as portals between the two cities.

Yahoo and CMU have announced a five-year, $10 million partnership.
Called Project InMind, it will allow CMU researchers to use Yahoo's real-world data as they develop personalized mobile applications.
InMind will use artificial intelligence techniques to automatically learn the needs and preferences of its users, enabling it to anticipate what information mobile users need and to provide that information when and where they need it.
