Heard it through the grapevine...April 2009

At the March 10 Great Conversations event, Pulitzer Prize-winner Seymour Hersh made blog headlines around the world with his assertion that, during the Bush administration, Vice President Cheney’s office oversaw an “executive assassination wing.” The story later popped up on CNN and on Fresh Air. Read Eric Black’s original MinnPost story on Hersh’s appearance, watch a portion of the conversation, or listen to the entire Great Conversations event.

The Great Conversations series continues on April 14 with “Innovative Science,” a conversation between Drs. Doris Taylor, a U researcher and a finalist for TIME magazine’s most influential person of the year, and Patricia Simmons, chair of the University’s Board of Regents.

Education via Twitter? The U is helping Minneapolis’s Roosevelt High School bring tools such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Maps, and more into the classroom. See a UMN News Service video about the program or read the feature article.
