KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little to step down in summer 2017

In fairness, just getting the TS/SCI process done will take the better part of a year, and that's just how long it takes to find out whether or not you get the clearance. If they want someone quickly, they'll need to hire someone who is already cleared.

Capitol Report: Brownback on higher ed, taxes; and KU's well-connected lobbyist

So.... if life legally begins at conception, does that mean that miscarriage is murder?

Kansas House candidate John Wilson chats on LJWorld.com

I lived in the same scholarship hall with him about ten years ago. He is indeed, quite a nice guy :-). It's a shame I'm not in his district.

KU's ranking drops several notches in latest U.S. News & World Report edition

I read through their methodology in determining the rankings -- they all seem to be pretty superficial (albeit objective) indicators. It seems though that there is nothing in there that really pertains to the quality of instruction. Why they don't include data pertaining to career success post-graduation is beyond me.

Protect computer files: Decide how to back up photos, presentations and more before it's too late

The safe deposit box is for you to put an external hard drive in, not paper, as a low-cost alternative to some of the more expensive online services.

Another good option if you're working with lots of text would be something like GitHub (if you are brave enough to get into git), which maintains complete revision history.

Protect computer files: Decide how to back up photos, presentations and more before it's too late

I'm disappointed that the article doesn't mention the free Dropbox service. Also worth pointing out that using an external hard drive for backups won't help you if your house burns down. To be safe, you need to keep a copy of your most important data off-site, like in a bank safe deposit box or a relative's house.

One last comment: video that autoplays that I can't stop? Mega-fail.

Family wants boy's stolen fair project returned

I'm not sure of a fair in the area with prizes that hand out enough money to be worth it..... Even when i won champion-type ribbons on my projects, the premiums paid out didn't come close to the cost of producing the project. But of course, that's not the point anyway.

Indoor Aquatic Center closed through Aug. 19

Just regular maintenance. They do this at about this time every year.
