DINOSAUR DANCE FLOOR:

The KU journal Palaios recently published an article that has been cited in nearly 700 newspapers, Web sites and other publications. The article describes preservation of a 190-million-year-old trampled surface, described as a “dinosaur dance floor” in Jurassic sandstone along the Arizona-Utah border. Published by KU, the authors also cited research by KU faculty members in the article.

ICH BIN EIN OBAMA:

German newspaper Tegernseer Zeitung turned to William D. Keel, professor of Germanic languages and literatures, for his take on Obama’s election. Keel was asked why Kansas, birthplace of his mother, voted for John McCain. Keel noted Obama was not seen as a regional candidate and he noted that Obama won Douglas County with 69 percent. Admitting his disappointment in the results as a Republican, Keel ended with the Bavarian idiom: "schau ma moi" — "let's wait and see" how Obama does. Keel directs KU's summer institute in nearby Holzkirchen.
