Ships passing in the night
A ship that conducts a voyage of scientific discovery is never merely a vehicle, any more than a telescope is merely a vehicle that transports images of heavenly new worlds to an observer. IU Home Pages takes you today on a voyage of discovery, featuring IU researchers involved in the diverse fields of archaeology, geography, geology, underwater studies, and the history and philosophy of science.

International Education Week Nov. 13-17
Immigrant populations in the state of Indiana have increased 10 percent in the past decade, with a concurrent 70 percent increase in the number of language minority K-12 students. Through IU’s International Studies for Indiana Schools project, school children will have the opportunity to learn more about other countries and cultures through a series of interactive videos to be broadcast next week from the School of Education in Bloomington. ISIS was developed in conjunction with IU’s Office of International Programs world area centers, the Center for Research on Learning and Technology, and Vision Athena network, a project of Indiana’ Corporation for Educational Communications. And read, too, about other events planned on IU’s campuses to commemorat Iternational Education Week.

White River green space transported ‘back to the future’
A team of IUPUI environmental scientists are transforming an urban riverbank near downtown Indianapolis into the green space it was in the 19th century. Through an initiative of the Center for Earth and Environmental Science, a strip of the eastern bank of the White River soon will be alive with the canopies of cottonwoods, sycamores and green ash, above a field of wildflowers and other native flowering plants. The ribbon of riverbank flood plain also will yield new scientific data that will guide the way riverbanks are restored to a natural state throughout the Mississippi River Valley and across the United States.

Groundskeepers on all IU campuses have enjoyed unseasonably warm weather as they’ve performed their tasks. Will snow blower replace rakes in the not-too-distant future? A Hoosier rule of thumb: if it’s basketball season, the flakes can begin flying at any moment. The Hoosiers play Pepperdine Thursday (Nov. 14) in the pre-season National Invitational Tournament (NIT).
