Myanmar police Thursday said they will conduct DNA tests on soldiers and residents in a northern village where two young teachers were murdered in a crime that has sparked widespread public anger. "We have collected hair samples of 25 soldiers who were on duty that night as well as from 10 villagers," lieutenant San Lwin of Shan state police force told AFP. The samples have been sent to the capital Naypyidaw for DNA testing to check against strands of hair found in the hands of both the deceased women, he added. Maran Lu Ra, 20, and Tangbau Hkawn Nan Tsin, 21, were volunteer teachers at IDP camps near the border town of Muse in Shan, parts of which have also been wracked by conflict between Myanmar's army and ethnic minority rebels in recent years.
“Everyone should have an opportunity to participate in higher education.”
With those words, Michael K. Young, President of the University of Washington, opens a new video from his institution’s AccessComputing Project, IT Accessibility: What Campus Leaders Have to Say. Developed with support from the National Science Foundation, this video presents university presidents, chief information officers, and other higher education leaders who stress the importance to higher education of accessibility for persons with disabilities, and of having campus technology environments that support it.
“When we were doing our studies for the National Academies, the typical first response of university presidents or CFOs or provosts was to say: ‘I understand things are changing very rapidly, but I'll ask my CIO to take care of it. The CIO usually can.’ We would then ask: ‘Suppose you wake up in the morning and come in to your office and nothing works anymore. You can't access e-mail. All of your course systems have collapsed. Who fixes the problem?’ They begin to scratch their heads, and pretty soon it's like the five phases of grief. They start off with denial and anger, move through bargaining and depression, and finally reach acceptance.” — James J. Duderstadt, Change and the Research University

For a number of years I have worked with standard medical school admissions as well as BS/MD admissions. This has mainly been through referrals from other counselors that knew I did medical school admissions.
