Heard on the Hill: E-textbook programs gain traction in other universities; KU prof's mass extinction theory getting new attention; Student Union Activities accepting submissions for film contest

Barclay and (Mis)-informed -
there is ZERO evidence of a world-wide flood. While the gamma-ray burst is intriguing, there is still a lot of good science to do. However, to outright dismiss it would be premature.

Kansas expected to have hand in developing national science curriculum standards

Homechanger - there are. Archeopteryx, Tiktaalic are a couple of the most famous, but take a visit to the basement of Dyche Hall. You'll see others.

KU wants to make "Jayhawk Generations" tuition waiver permanent

That's the all-in cost of attending. Room, board, etc The Generations reduction is only on tuition. In-state tuition $3037/semester; Non-resident $10,340/semester. So yes, it's triple.

KU wants to make "Jayhawk Generations" tuition waiver permanent

My kid is one of the 123 and it sure helped make the dream of another generation wearing the Crimson and Blue a reality. All the neighboring states offer similar programs. What's the problem with bringing bright kids that should have a better than average chance of graduating to Kansas vs. Missouri?

Kansas Rep. Tom Sloan agrees to back X-fish as state's official fossil

I'd have rather seen the Pteranodon as the state fossil since it's found in Kansas too and has more recognition than Xiphactinus. That being said, the X-fish is a cool choice too. Kansas is the best place in the world to find fossils like this and it's nice to see the recognition when they list the "State this and State that".

It can be, has been, worse for KU football

In those past losing streaks, if I recall, there were some ranked teams. This time, we've been killed by mediocre Baylor, KSU and T A&M. Not quite the Sooners and Huskers of the Big 8.

Man seeks buyer for prehistoric fish fossil found in Kansas

this fish was found in the Niobrara Chalk, not in shale. I agree soft tissue can be preserved in the proper environs, but this isn't one.

Man seeks buyer for prehistoric fish fossil found in Kansas

I thought the same thing Chuck. I noticed he says this is the largest Cretaceous fish assembled. It's a big one, for sure, but I have a 17 footer in my basement.

Man seeks buyer for prehistoric fish fossil found in Kansas

This should get interesting. He's the guy that tried to sell a fish to the state for millions of dollar. His statement that he found soft tissue is telling since he's a young earth creationist. You don't find soft tissue preservation in the chalk of Kansas. Scales and skin impressions, but not soft tissue. There's more to this story - mark my words.

Here's his funny website: spearofjesus.com
