The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering has launched a program with Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University (BVDU) that will bring master’s students from India to the joint school.
“Their students complete the coursework for their M.Tech degree at BVDU, and a small number will come to JSNN to perform their research for their degree,” said Dr. Jim Ryan, JSNN dean.
“The program is very competitive, and the students who will come to JSNN are of the highest caliber. We expect four to arrive in January.”
Some of the students may have an opportunity to stay at the JSNN for their doctoral degrees, Ryan said.
If you’re a reporter in North Carolina, a good story about hog waste is always a winner. Our state has a lot of hogs, and, once you get near a bunch of them, you don’t necessarily need your sense of sight to find them.
We’ve already seen some news coverage of Dr. Ellie Fini and her technology to use hog manure as a source for the binder used in asphalt. In addition to usefully disposing of the hog waste, it would also reduce the amount of more expensive petroleum-derived binder needed in asphalt production. Now News 14, the local Time Warner Cable news channel, checks in with this video report on Fini’s research.

“Lou Donaldson has been a major force not just as a musician but also as a scout for new talent for the Blue Note label.”
— Rocco Landesman, chairman, National Endowment for the Arts
It’s a big year for one of the all-time great Aggie musicians. This month, alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson will receive the state of North Carolina’s highest civilian honor, the North Carolina Award. Previously, he was named a 2013 NEA Jazz Master, the nation’s highest jazz honor.
From the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources announcement of this year’s award recipients:
One of the most popular alto saxophonists to record for the famed Blue Note label, Stanly County native Lou Donaldson has played and recorded with jazz legends. He grew up in Badin, attended N.C. A&T State University, and was drafted into the Navy in 1945 where he played with the Great Lakes Navy Band. In the 1950s, several musicians were first recorded with Donaldson, including Horace Silver, Donald Byrd, and Curtis Fuller. He played with Art Blakely, Milt Jackson and Clark Terry, and on the milestone live recording, A Night at Birdland. His most successful albums are Blues Walk, Lush Life, and Alligator Bugaloo. He has toured in the U.S., Europe and Japan, and in 1996 was inducted into the International Jazz Hall of Fame, and was declared a 2013 Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts. At 85-years-old, he still plays locally in New York where he lives.
He and the five other honorees will receive their awards Tuesday October 30 at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh.
