KU alumnus follows 'new doors' from law career to crime writing

No, he publishes under Joel Goldman. It looks like the library does have some of his titles in its catalog:

New service allows people to feed KU parking meters from their smartphones, no coins needed

Actually, those 40-minute meters won't be affected, Hultine said. This is only for the long-term meters, which counts those out. Those short-term meters will still be left the same, to keep them clear for drop-offs, etc. Around 225 of the 277 meters on campus are long-term meters, she said.

Thanks,

New service allows people to feed KU parking meters from their smartphones, no coins needed

Well, plans aren't to allow metered parking anywhere — just in that one lot by the football stadium, and possibly in more lots in the future if the service is used widely. Hultine said she wasn't sure how it would impact Parking and Transit's revenue, and the idea is to make it easier for visitors or people without permits to park.

Thanks,

KU professor says phones, cars shouldn't mix

If I can chime in: Hiring spouses together is a pretty common practice in higher education. They call it "spousal accomodation." Here's a story about it from a while back:

KU geographers win defense grant to study Central American communities

Well, if you look at this topics page:

http://minerva.dtic.mil/topics.html

It looks like the DoD is researching broader questions about global topics that could be applied to a lot of different places — in this case, what might make indigenous groups more or less susceptible to poverty, violence, etc. For instance, Herlihy said, it may have been helpful for the U.S. to have a deeper understanding of groups such as the Kurds in Iraq.

Thanks,

Student residents forced out of KU apartment building because of drought-related damage

Not yet. But that's something else you might want to watch for in the KU Today section in August.

Student residents forced out of KU apartment building because of drought-related damage

During a chat about KU's master planning process for a story in our KU Today edition (coming in August!), Modig did say the Stouffer Place complex is one area of campus that could be used better as things become more crowded. He mentioned the possibility of replacing them with a denser development with more stories, rather than the 25 different two-story buildings that are there now. That would open up space for other development in that area. Not to mention at least some of them are quite old — this building in question was built in the 1950s, according to that engineering report.

Thanks,

Decisions on KU budget cuts now in hands of deans, other leaders

A correction, and sorry if this wasn't clear from the story: Only four of those 31 slots KUMC has announced it will lose are residencies. The rest are student spots.

Thanks,
