DID YOU KNOW?
Cartography Lab Creates Last Maps
New "Tree Walk" maps are now available for free at the Henderson Museum and Heritage Center. The maps list 64 trees in the Historic District area of the Boulder campus. Memorials & Public Art of the CU Boulder Campus Historic District maps soon will be available, listing 75 sites around campus. These are the last two maps in the Heritage Map Series, created by the cartography lab in the Department of Geography as a parting gift to the university. The lab closed June 16 due to budget cuts. For more information visit the Department of Geography Cartography Lab.
Spam is a growing problem. As you wade through and delete unwanted email, it might surprise you to know that you're not even seeing the vast majority of unwanted messages that get delivered to the campus each day. Because of the filtering and aggressive blocking of known spammers and messages containing viruses and worms, more than 80 percent of messages sent to campus email users each day are never even delivered to campus inboxes. In fact, ITS currently blocks more than 30 million hosts and rejects more than one million messages per day. For more information visit the ITS web site.
"What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas"
We've all heard that famous line, promoting Las Vegas tourism. Did you know that it was co-created by School of Journalism and Mass Communication alum Jason Hoff (2000)? He and partner Jeff Candido penned the famous line, which is credited with boosting Las Vegas tourism. Hoff currently works for BBDO New York, creating advertisements for Pepsi, G.E. and eBay. He hopes to someday run his own advertising agency. Information courtesy of the SJMC newsletter, Bylines.
