  • Cyber exercise puts labs to test

    Intense pressure creates diamonds from coal, they say, and for Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory cyber security programs, it’s an apt comparison.

    Fending off thousands of computer attacks from around the world, controlling vast libraries of sensitive information, yet keeping the scientific flow of knowledge moving, cyber teams such as those at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and elsewhere in the government complex feel the squeeze.

  • History of women in NM politics

    In our continuing coverage of New Mexico’s centennial year, we focus today on women in New Mexico politics.
    For the first 10 years of statehood, New Mexico had no women in politics. During that period we were the only state west of the Mississippi not to allow women to vote except for education officials. But with the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, that changed and women began making up for lost time.
    In 1922, two women were elected to statewide office and one to the state House of Representatives. In addition, Adelina “Ninai” Otero Warren won the Republican nomination to Congress but was defeated in the general election.

  • Dizzy on the Syzgy

    If you’re a triskaidekaphobic or paraskevidekatriaphobic, there is little chance you are reading this. You’re more likely hiding under your bed, covering in fear because today is Friday the 13th. Yeah, well, everyone needs a hobby. Having an irrational fear of numbers or dates is as good as anything, I guess.
    I have to admit that I suffer from coulrophobia, a fear of clowns. Well, that’s not exactly true. Actually, I’m afraid of a clown chasing me with a chainsaw while I’m wearing oversized swimming flippers.
    But Friday the 13th holds a special meaning this month (other than the ultimate fear of being chased by 13 clowns all armed with chainsaws). April 13th is Scrabble Day!

    Ealey, a senior for the Hilltoppers, won the 100 meters and the shot put at the Marilyn Sepulveda Meet of Champions Monday. Ealey, the three-time reigning sprint champ and the 2011 state Class 4A shot put champ, picked up wins in both events Monday in what is a mid-season All-Star track meet.
