McCook Daily Gazette
Commissioners consider cleaning
out attic
Tuesday, April 20, 2004
Connie Jo Discoe
Red Willow County commissioners and Assessor Sandra Kotschwar discussed the courthouse's "overloaded, almost unsafe upstairs" during the commissioners' regular meeting Monday morning. Kotschwar told commissioners her office has state regulations decreeing what records she can throw out and what she has to keep forever. What she must keep forever can be sent to Lincoln for storage by the Nebraska Records Management Division, Kotschwar said.

For the record
by Darlene J. Taylor
STAFF WRITER
CLARKSBURG -- Efforts to salvage records at the Harrison County Courthouse have
moved to the point that preservation workers are almost ready to catalog documents.
A $30,000 grant from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History will be used
to re-inventory the records. The Harrison County Commission kicked in another
$10,000 so the records -- dating as far back as 1784 -- can be bar coded at the same
time.

Notasulga council loosens public
records access policy
The Associated Press
April 20, 2004
The city council has amended its policy that limited access to public records to two
hours a month, opting for a one-hour-a-day rule that requires an appointment and a
"valid reason" to inspect city documents.
The council's 3-1 vote Monday did away with a policy adopted in February that
was described by critics as the most restrictive in Alabama.

Student tests University's exam confidentiality rules
Profs, students differ on views
By MATTHEW HUNT
Published , April 19, 2004, 06:00:01 AM EDT
A University decision that forced a professor to give one of his students a copy of
a test prompted differing views among students, administrators and professors
concerning the University policy.
Rod Dishman, a professor in the school of Health and Human Performance, said
he plans to appeal the University's exam policy, and added that allowing a student
to request copies of examinations could potentially threaten academic freedom.

Sony Debuts 25-GB Blu-Ray Paper Disc
By Jay Lyman

04/16/04 1:40 PM PT
The key to the paper disc technology lies in the ability to print in fine detail with Blu-Ray's blue
laser, according to Sony senior general manager of optical system development Masanobu
Yamamoto. "Since the Blu-Ray Disc does not require laser light to travel through the substrate, we
were able to develop this paper disc," he said.

Re-inventing note-taking
The transcribing business is ancient, conservative, vital A Markham firm bets technology
will transform it
M. COREY GOLDMAN
It was only a matter of time before technology caught up with the transcription business. The image of the prim and proper lady typing on a stenograph machine or mouthing words into a tape recorder is jarring in the age of high-speed Internet.
Markham-based Voice IQ is looking to make that image seem even more obsolescent with software and Internet-based services that allow everything from traffic-court proceedings to legal depositions to House of Commons debates to be digitally recorded, transcribed by humans and filed electronically, ready for retrieval at the stroke of a few keys.

Particle physicists rescue rare vinyl recordings

Classic audio recordings preserved on a warped and damaged
records could yet be rescued for future generations using an
optical analysis technique originally developed to keep track of
subatomic particles.
Many rare vinyl recordings exist in libraries around the world. In
the British Library's National Sound Archive there are more than
a million old vinyl records. But even running a needle across
some of these old records can damage them severely.

Safe, Fast-Drying and Said to
Douse Fires
By CLAUDIA H. DEUTSCH
Published: April 19, 2004
Anyone who has dealt with waterlogged books or shorted-out computers after a fire knows that dousing flames can be as damaging as the conflagration itself.
But now Tyco International claims that it has a fire suppression system that will make the cleanup a snap. The system, called Sapphire, relies on Novec 1230, a fluorine-based chemical made by 3M. The National Fire Protection Association, association that writes and publishes national fire standards, has deemed Novec to be as effective as existing chemical and gas fire suppressants, without contributing to global warming or depletion of the ozone layer.
