Commentary: Gray is the new blonde-not!Restricted Content

Tawn Parent
Photos of four area university presidents graced the cover of The Indianapolis Star's Sunday arts and entertainment section back in March. They were all female. My first reaction was, "Isn't it cool that women are reaching the highest echelon of higher ed?" My second reaction was, "Why don't any of them have gray hair?" Well, surely some of them do, since at that time their ages ranged from 59-66. It just doesn't show. I was surprised. If there is a...

RETURN ON TECHNOLOGY: Web conferences have come a long way, babyRestricted Content

October 27, 2008
Tim Altom
I can change my mind. It's painful, like yanking off my right arm for a slightly upgraded replacement. But it happens. For a long time, I resisted holding Web conferences. As the name implies, Web conferences are held over the Web, rather than in person. For years, most of the ones I'd been in were videoconferences with grainy, slowly updated images of talking heads where it was difficult even to know who was speaking. I didn't like the document-centric online...

SPORTS: Tony Dungy is much more than a football coachRestricted Content

October 27, 2008
Bill Benner
Of this, that and the other: It was my pleasure to co-moderate (with IBJ's Anthony Schoettle) last week's IBJ "Power Breakfast" featuring Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy. This was the third year I'd shared the stage with Dungy, the Super Bowl-winning coach who most of us know by now is also a best-selling author, a man of deep faith, and a committed social activist, the latter best exemplified by his involvement with his mentoring program, All-Pro Dads. A Westin Hotel...

Martin professor's ouster sparks student protests

October 27, 2008
Scott Olson
Martin University students upset over the firing of a popular professor are staging protests over the direction the school has taken under new President Algeania Freeman. Freeman in January replaced the Rev. Boniface Hardin, a Benedictine monk who founded the inner-city school 30 years ago. She since has roiled many faculty members and students by letting go employees-many times without reason, they contend-as part of a strategy to cut costs. IBJ reported their concerns in July. But the Oct. 20...

IU seeking funding to help alleviate doctor shortage: Medical school wants extra $5 million from Legislature to tackle projected shortfall of 1,300 physicians by 2025Restricted Content

October 20, 2008
Scott Olson
An acute physician shortage in Indiana is driving a request for an additional $5 million in annual funding to expand enrollment at the state's only medical school. The Indiana University School of Medicine's Physician Workforce Task Force conducted a study in 2006 that found the state already had 3,500 fewer physicians than it should. Indiana had 12,534 doctors in 2005-a number that remains relatively flat because the medical school churns out the same number of graduates each year. Over the...

VOICES FROM THE INDUSTRY: Worksite wellness encourages steps to healthier firmRestricted Content

October 20, 2008
Patrick J.
Over the past several years, employers have seen a movement from traditional PPO health plans to consumer-driven health plans, by implementing qualified high-deductible plans such as health savings accounts. This shift has been viewed by most to have initially lowered overall employer and employee cost, but more importantly, it has gotten the employee more involved in their health care choices. Fortunately, consumer-driven health care plans are not the only answer in reducing employer costs. According to the Towers Perrin 2008...

My sister-in-law is a deputy county prosecutor in Michigan. By all accounts, she's good at her job. But that may not matter. You see, my sisterin-law's boss is up for re-election next month. And because his job is on the line, so is hers. So in addition to her day job, my sister-in-law has been working nights and weekends on the campaign. My sister-in-law is passionate about putting away bad guys. She'd like to keep doing it. But it's not...

IP law illuminates growing field for women: Increase mirrors rising number of Internet companies and inventionsRestricted Content

Della Pacheco
But more than a century later, women are protecting more than their own assets-they're increasingly looking out for the intellectual property of business owners large and small. One of the hottest practice groups within law firms today, intellectual property law falls into four basic areas: copyrights, trademarks, patents and publicity rights. With the exception of patent law, which requires a background in science or engineering, no specialized undergraduate degree is required. Gary Roberts, dean and the Gerald L. Bepko professor...

Bumpy road ahead for truck-driving schools?: Slowing freight and federal standards could hurt prospects and raise costsRestricted Content

October 13, 2008
Chris O\'malley
With a driver shortage as bad as the freight industry says, one might think operating a truck-driving school would be a license to print money. But proposed federal rules to toughen training standards and, lately, a fishtailing economy could bring a shakeout among schools. There are even rumblings that a few big carriers that contract with driving schools are poised to eliminate tuition reimbursement as they sweat out the economic downturn. "We're going to start losing schools," predicted John Priest,...

Clearing up cloudy cases: Growing list of insurers, attorneys turn to television reporter Nicholson to shed light on weather eventsRestricted Content

If someone slips and falls in a parking lot, was it the fault of the property owner because he didn't plow, or was the snow not deep enough in that area to prove a duty to plow? If a child darts in front of a car at dusk, were the conditions at that moment in the day enough for the driver to be able to see the child? Should the driver legally have had his or her headlights on, and...

Firm off to a FAST start: Investors backing company's kidney assessment technologyRestricted Content

FAST Diagnostics quickly is becoming one of the more promising companies in Indiana University's efforts to commercialize its discoveries. Incorporated in November 2006, it is developing a method to measure kidney function faster and more accurately than existing techniques can. While FAST represents speed, the name actually stands for functional assessment and surveillance technology. The fledgling firm so far has attracted more than $4 million from investors, including $2 million from the state's 21st Century Fund. BioCrossroads, Rose Hulman Ventures...

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
