Equitable Structure for Employee Parking

New Equitable Structure for Employee Parking Begins August 1 at UTK:

"Beginning in the fall 2016 semester, the university will begin charging for faculty and staff parking through a tiered, equitable pay structure.
The changes are the result of feedback from employees and research conducted about faculty and staff parking at other large universities.
Employee permits for the 2015-16 academic year expire on July 31. The new pay structure will take effect for permits that begin on August 1.
The new employee payment structure has four cost levels and is based on an employee’s annual compensation.
Here are the levels:
  • $29,999 and under annual compensation will pay $20 per month
  • $30,000 to $59,999 will pay $30 per month
  • $60,000 to $149,999 will pay $35 per month
  • $150,000 and over annual compensation will pay $50 per month
Most faculty and staff will see no change to the price they currently pay, while a substantial number of our staff will begin paying less."

Go Big Orange

Via the Ham Radio forum at

Of course, being from Knoxville, I'm a fan of orange (and white).

And it makes sense that I would like the orange on the TERMN-8R.

I've recently learned about the Eduroam service and I must say it is a cool idea. Basically, a bunch of schools got together to allow wireless access at each other's locations:
"The eduroam initiative started in 2003 within TERENA's Task Force on Mobility, TF-Mobility. The task force created a test bed to demonstrate the feasibility of combining a RADIUS-based infrastructure with 802.1X standard technology to provide roaming network access across research and education networks. The initial test was conducted among five institutions located in the Netherlands, Finland, Portugal, Croatia and the UK. Later, other national research and education networking organisations in Europe embraced the idea and gradually started joining the infrastructure, which was then named eduroam. 
eduroam allows any eduroam-enabled user to get network access at any institution connected to eduroam."
So say, I was a student at the University of Tennessee here in Knoxville. If I were to visit London, I would be able to connect to the LSE's (and many other's) wireless network. That's pretty slick.

Power T

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville is moving away from the UT System logo. The logo incorporates the image of the state.

They will start using the Power T in 2015. This is the same logo that athletics uses today. This seems to be a move to create more of a local, Knoxville identity.

But Coach Butch Jones has been preaching the idea of "One Tennessee" in an effort to lock up recruiting statewide.

TN Governor's Race

He's thrown his hat in the ring. And something will be just like the purity of that apple.

Because we don't have much to cheer for with the current state of our football program, we can focus on our glorious past.

Very cool...
"The release went on to state that “[d]espite being engaged in a heated conference game, both teams set aside their battle to show support for a football player, regardless of which uniform he wore. The act displayed both great sportsmanship by the teams gathered as one support unit as well as the impact that Lattimore had on his sport.”"

wesrucker247 RT @DesertVol: @wesrucker247 It's obvious now the preseason voters were using Roman numerals: II instead of 11 for UT.Sun, Mar 04 13:53:20 from TweetDeck
