Eastman School Alumnus Mitch Miller Dies at 99
Legendary conductor Mitch Miller '32E died Saturday, July 31, in New York City after a short illness. He was 99. “Mitch Miller will be remembered as an American original," said Douglas Lowry, dean of the Eastman School. "He was musically opinionated and passionate. He had an extraordinary intuition for the essence of music, a nose for talent, and a breadth of musical experience that spanned classical to pop." A best-selling recording artist, Miller was best known as the creator of the popular television series Sing Along with Mitch.

Purple Light Means Go, Ultraviolet Light Means Stop
A new membrane developed at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics blocks gas from flowing through it when one color of light is shined on its surface, and permits gas to flow through when another color of light is used. It is the first time that scientists have developed a membrane that can be controlled in this way by light.

Women Attracted to Men in Red, Research Shows
Simply wearing the color red or being framed in the rosy hue makes a man more attractive and sexually desirable to women, according to a series of studies by researchers at Rochester and other institutions. And women are unaware of the arousing effect.

Virtual Private Network Provides Secure Connection
University IT advises faculty and staff who need to access e-mail or other University restricted resources from off campus to use Virtual Private Network (VPN), which provides a secure connection between an off-campus computer and University resources.
