    U biology professor Jim Ehleringer was named to the National Academy of Sciences, bringing the U's total to 12. This is a tremendous honor for Dr. Ehleringer and for the U.

    A New Way to Nip AIDS in the Bud

    When new AIDS virus particles bud from an infected cell, an enzyme named protease activates to help the viruses mature and infect more cells. That’s why modern AIDS drugs control the disease by inhibiting protease.

    Now, University of Utah researchers found a way to turn protease into a double-edged sword: They showed that if they delay the budding of new HIV particles, protease itself will destroy the virus instead of helping it spread. They say that might lead, in about a decade, to new kinds of AIDS drugs with fewer side effects. ...

    This is interesting. The associate dean of academic affairs and research at BYU's law school moves to the U's law school.

    Good for her. A big step up!

    She probably wanted to do some legal research for someone other than the sutherland institute.

    With a name like RonNell Andersen Jones I knew she must have Utah origins, by the way.

    And...eight of the programs ranked above Utah have athletics budgets over $100 million.

    Looks like they used political speechwriting pros at first, then Melania involved someone with no such experience. Amateur hour. Would never happen on an organized presidential campaign at this level.

    I think people are still trying to verify if this person even exists. Still waiting for Donald Baron to return their calls.

    This is pretty cool.

    Mormon leader Thomas S. Monson attends ceremony naming historic Utah building in his honor

    The U. now owns the old LDS Business College building on South Temple and it will be called the Thomas S. Monson Center:

    http://www.sltrib.com/lifestyle/fait...monson-attends

    For nearly half a century, the historic Wall Mansion, at 411 E. South Temple in Salt Lake City, was home to LDS Business College. The overhauled building now becomes the Thomas S. Monson Center, the U.'s "embassy to the community" and home to the school's Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute.
    That's fitting, President Henry B. Eyring, Monson's first counselor in the LDS Church's governing First Presidency, said in a short speech. "Just as President Monson has reached out to people from every background and walk of life, this center will draw individuals and organizations from the local and global community to engage their minds and hearts in creating ideas and programs that change lives, communities and nations for the better."

    My wife attended the ceremony. She said pres. Eyeing talked about how much Pres Monson loved his "beloved " U of U and esp. the bus school. I didn't know this, but he apparently thought in the business school for several years at least

    Love this.


    As Monson exited the event to get into his car, he waved to the crowd and, in an ode to the U. fight song, said to all within earshot: "I am a Utah man, sir."
    “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
