Science magazine features article on fired UA prof
[news] A University of Arizona controversy surrounding fired researcher Marguerite Kay has drawn national attention in the scientific community. Science magazine, the publication of the American Association for Advancement of Science, featured a three-page article on Kay's case in last week's issue, entitled "The Misconduct Case That Won't Go Away."

Set for success
[news]
Elvina Clark tells the story well. The 5-foot-6 defensive specialist was walking through a mall in Farmington, N.M. when a young child came up to her. "She asked me, 'Are you Elvina Clark for the Arizona volleyball team?'" Clark said. "I was amazed that she knew who I was. It was then that I realized that I was sort of looked up to by other Native Americans."

Stealing our Rights
[news] What's happening to the Tucson City Council? Why have the city's elected representatives once again decided to trample on their constituents' rights? In April, the council passed a restaurant smoking ban, forcing eateries to comply with costly and restrictive regulations. The ban, which took effect in October, has already alienated prominent local businesses and resulted in bad blood between the city council and many Tucson residents.

The Flecktones bring unique sound to Tucson
[news] How many musicians have been nominated for Grammy awards in jazz, pop, country, bluegrass, spoken word, Christian, world music and composition categories? Which video is the only one ever played on VH1, CMT, and BET simultaneously? Who has performed with Dave Matthews, Jerry Garcia, Spinal Tap, Phish and the Chieftains? All these questions can be answered in one name - Bela Fleck.

Quotable:
"Kay's case has been used as the epitome of things that go wrong. It's going to stay in the national spotlight."

-Carol Bernstein, president of the American Association of University Professors. Bernstein was commenting about the firing of former UA researcher Marguerite Kay, who was dismissed in May after a UA committee found that she falsified her research on Alzheimer‚s disease.
