The University at Albany has named its new athletic director. Mark Benson was introduced at a campus press conference Wednesday morning. Formerly assistant vice president for athletic development at Old Dominion, Benson replaces the retiring Lee McElroy, who stepped aside in June after 14 years. The SUNY school opened a new football stadium last year. Its football team now plays in the Colonial Athletic Association, which Old Dominion competed in before leaving for Conference USA.

Karen Hitchcock: Removal Of College of Nanoscale Sciences A No-Win Decision

On July 16th, the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York voted to separate CNSE, the College of Nanoscale Sciences and Engineering, from its university, the University at Albany. Many opinions have been voiced, both pro and con, since the possibility of such a split was “leaked” this past March. As the president of UAlbany when the nanotechnology initiative was begun and moved through critical phases in its growth, I have expressed my opinion regarding this decision in a recent interview with The Business Review. Indeed, an editorial expanding on my deep concerns will appear tomorrow in the August 8th edition of this same publication.

Rick Mathews, National Center for Security and Preparedness - "Death Rays" And Homegrown Terror

Rick Mathews

"Death ray" - it’s a phrase you would most likely expect to see across the top of a pulp sci-fi comic book from the 1950s – but this week it graced the front pages of some newspapers in their coverage of a case of domestic terrorism home-grown in New York’s Capital District.

On Thursday a federal magistrate in Albany ruled that 49-year-old Glendon Scott Crawford and 54-year-old Eric J. Feight are a threat and should remain jailed. 

The men are accused of trying to build a portable x-ray weapon to sicken Muslims and enemies of Israel.

Susannah Sheffer, Project Director at Murder Victims' Families for Human Rights at SUNY Albany

  Susannah Sheffer, Project Director at Murder Victims' Families for Human Rights, will be speaking tonight at SUNY Albany’s School of Criminal Justice about her new book: Fighting for Their Lives: Inside the Experience of Capital Defense Attorneys.

The book tackles such questions as: How do attorneys who represent clients facing the death penalty cope with the stress and trauma of their work? Through conversations with twenty of the most experienced and dedicated post-conviction capital defenders in the United States.

What it is like for these capital defenders in their last visits or phone calls with clients who are about to be taken to the execution chamber? Or the next mornings, in their lives with their families, in their dreams and flashbacks and moments alone in the car?

Today’s event is at 5:30 at Husted Hall Amphitheatre.
