GIANT SEA SCORPION

Paul Selden, the Gulf-Hedberg Distinguished Professor of Geology, was quoted in a recent article on NewScientist.com about the discovery of the remains of an ancient giant sea scorpion. “They were the top predators at the time,” Selden said of the 2.5 meter long creatures who roamed the ocean floor roughly 390 million years ago. The creature has long been extinct, but some scientists think it led to modern land scorpions, though others believe it to be an “evolutionary dead end.”

NATURAL NOTICE

MarketFresh, KU Dining Services’ new offering of organic and all-natural snacks, soups, salads and produce, received mention in a recent issue of the National Association of College and University Food Service’s newsletter. “The addition of MarketFresh to KU Dining Services’ growing portfolio of high-end offerings is an exciting one,” said Nona Golledge, director of Dining Services. “Our customers are aware of — and appreciate — organic, all-natural products, and we are happy to now offer such a variety in one place.”

MEDIA SALVAGE JOB

Diana Carlin, professor of communications studies, was quoted in a recent Los Angeles Times article about President George W. Bush’s recent off-the-record meetings with media to preview White House speeches and other topics. Bush “doesn’t have a lot of time to salvage his administration, and the media is the conduit for how the rest of us view him,” Carlin said.
