After a 15-year hiatus, concerts are returning to Folsom Field. This morning, AEG Live announced that Dead & Company (three of the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, touring with John Mayer and others) will play two shows at Folsom Field on July 2 and 3. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, while various pre-sale opportunities will start Tuesday. See http://bit.ly/1QmKl4P for more details.

While events such as this create significant economic opportunities for city businesses and sales tax revenue, we recognize that there will be traffic and noise impacts on the city and neighbors near Folsom Field. The university is working with concert promoters to ensure that this concert is a positive experience for not only concertgoers, but also for the community at large.

In the ever-escalating evolutionary battle with drug-resistant bacteria, humans may soon have a leg up thanks to adaptive, light-activated nanotherapy developed by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Salmonella, E. Coli and Staphylococcus infect some 2 million people and kill at least 23,000 people in the United States each year. Efforts to thwart these so-called “superbugs” have consistently fallen short due to the bacteria’s ability to rapidly adapt and develop immunity to common antibiotics such as penicillin.

New research from CU-Boulder, however, suggests that the solution to this big global problem might be to think small—very small.

In a season of post-holiday gym memberships, an unusually star-deprived black hole at the site of two merged galaxies is showing that these massive gravitational voids can shed weight too.

The recently discovered black hole, which does not have the expected number of stars surrounding it, could provide new insight into black hole evolution and behavior, according to recently published research from the University of Colorado Boulder.

Today we remember University of Colorado Boulder alumni Ellison Onizuka and Kalpana Chawla, astronauts who died in NASA space shuttle accidents 17 years apart.

Onizuka, a member of the Challenger crew, received his bachelor’s and masters’ degree from the Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES) in 1969. Chawla, a member of the Columbia crew, received her doctorate from AES in 1988.

A ceremony will take place on campus at 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 30 to honor these Forever Buffs.

Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder, in collaboration with UC Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), have developed a groundbreaking microprocessor chip that uses light, rather than electricity, to transfer data at rapid speeds while consuming minute amounts of energy. 

“Light based integrated circuits could lead to radical changes in computing and network chip architecture in applications ranging from smartphones to supercomputers to large data centers, something computer architects have already begun work on in anticipation of the arrival of this technology,” said Miloš Popović, an assistant professor in CU-Boulder’s Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering and a co-corresponding author of the study.

Patty Limerick, faculty director of the Center of the American West, seizes every opportunity to demonstrate the value of the humanities. As an influential historian of the American West, she tries to help in the resolution of contemporary dilemmas and conflicts by applying a combination of historical perspective and humor.

The recipient of frequent recognition for these approaches, including a MacArthur Fellowship, she is adding two additional honors announced today to the list: member of the advisory board for the National Endowment for the Humanities and Colorado State Historian.

Your gut affects your health in more ways than one.

The human gut harbors a teeming menagerie of over 100 trillion microorganisms, and researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have discovered that exercising early in life can alter that microbial community for the better, promoting healthier brain and metabolic activity over the course of a lifetime.

The recently published research indicates that there may be a window of opportunity during early human development to optimize the chances of better lifelong health.

Education is not a new passion for senior anthropology major Kirsten Grafa. An active participant and a student employee with the CU Boulder Volunteer Resource Center (VRC),Grafa is regularly involved in projects centered on youth empowerment and advocacy. When she graduates this spring, she will put her experience to the test as a middle school English teacher at an inner-city school in Philadelphia with Teach For America.

"Starting your first day as a teacher is terrifying," she said. "It's a big responsibility; it's all a learning process. I’m excited to see the ability I could potentially have in the classroom, especially with special education needs."

Water managers in Colorado and the West scrambling to meet the growing demand for increasingly scarce water supplies caused by large populations far from water resources, climate change and drought need to focus more effort on conserving water, including addressing reservoir evaporation, say University of Colorado Boulder researchers.

While reducing water consumption has been successful in places like Denver and much of California, the loss of water from reservoir evaporation is an issue already affecting the growing population of the West, said CU-Boulder Associate Professor Katja Friedrich. The reservoir water loss is becoming even more important as broad uncertainties in precipitation projected by climate change and early snowmelt require more reservoir storage, she said.

I am sick and tired of the school prioritizing sports over academics. So many academic buildings are built way off campus while the sports complexes are being built in center campus. Honestly, if their sports teams were good I would be more willing to have a 35 minute plus walk to class. Sadly, the sports teams absolutely suck, which means I am walking that extra distance to east campus for absolutely nothing!

What a beautiful campus and community. We visited the school to check it out for my daughter, she fell in love and it has moved to the top of her wish list. My only worry for her is the size and the increased chance she will just become another number.

If you are looking to study engineering I do not recommend this University, the reason being a) Most professors are too busy to help you. b) The University tells you to go through study groups for success (I do not like study groups I am sorry). c) If you prefer learning on your own and understanding everything, then this University does not advocate that (connected to b). d) T.A and L.A are of no help or 0 help. e) Online homework is annoying (this is one of the few universities I know that give that).

I'm currently considering entering the Architectural Engineering program UC has to offer. Prior to this, I've done some of my studies in Tempe, Arizona at Arizona State University. I plan to transfer my credits once I've received instate tuition and enroll into the Spring of 2016! ASU has great programs as well, however for me, I need something new. I'm hopeful that UC can enhance my college experience.
