It might be a little difficult to recall life without web search giant Google, Inc., but the Mountain View, Calif.-based corporation popped up on the tech scene just 14 years ago—and hasn’t looked back. Since founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin met at Stanford University in 1995 to filing for incorporation as Google, Inc. (initially called BackRub) to claim its first investment of $100,000 in 1998, the robust brand has expanded to include more than 70 offices in over 40 countries around the globe. While September 4, 1998 marks the day Google filed the incorporation papers, in recent years, Sept. 27 is the day Google has chosen to celebrate its inception. In honor of the popular search engine’s 14th birthday, BlackEnterprise.com has compiled a list of Google’s most historic moments. –Janel Martinez

The social media analytics company Klout announced on Tuesday they were rolling out a new scoring system, ditching the former 100-variables rating system and replacing it with one containing over 400 metrics, according to Mashable. The San Francisco-based tech company stirred up some controversy with their old scoring system, which many argued didn’t measure one’s “true influence.” (Case in point, Justin Bieber’s score trumping that of President Barack Obama’s until the recent change.)  Now, Klout looks at over 12 billion bits of data each day across the seven social networking sites it looks at, which is 12 times greater than previously analyzed. With the new algorithm measuring real-world influence and the unveiling of “Klout Moments,” Mashable details what you need to know about the changes:

Office ethics and fashion choices can be tricky topics on their own. Put them together and it can easily create a major problem. Dressing for the office doesn’t have to be all work and no play. The key is finding that balance, and making sure that you’re sending the  right message. “Overall, one should really be concerned with how they  present themselves and how they represent the brand, meaning whoever you  work for,” says Shawn Outler, a Macy’s vice president.

BlackEnterprise.com spoke further with Outler to get insight on the top office attire vices and how not to commit professional style offenses. ---Dominique Hobdy

Exposing Students to STEM Earlier 

The lack of black people in technology stems from the lack of STEM education. While America doesn’t produce a great number of white scientists, mathematicians and engineers, the disparity hits African Americans a lot stronger. African Americans received just 7 % of all STEM bachelor's degrees, 4 % of master's degrees, and 2 % of PhDs in 2009, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Thankfully, several extra-curricular programs like Black Girls Code are dedicated to teaching children and young adults from underrepresented communities. 

With this initiative promising to focus on youth at the beginning of their educational careers, students will become exposed to all that STEM has to offer in the classroom.
