Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to Dr. Bruce Korf from the department of Genomics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham about the challenges of maintaining privacy in the information age.

We’ll also visit a school in the northeast that has been getting along quite well without a principal…and we’ll spend an academic minute making you want to scream.
