College costs aren’t the real issue, higher-ed experts tell Bates symposium

Everyone knows that the big story about higher education is that costs are out of control. That story sets the tone for media coverage of higher education, and it's the story that keeps parents awake at night. And it's wrong.

Physicist Childress among 'spin doctors' making quantum discovery

Tuesday, October 11, 2011 2:54 pm

While physicists have been able for decades to measure the spin state of a single atom in a vacuum, previous techniques for measuring the spin of a single electron or nucleus in a solid state disturb surrounding spins. Now researchers including Lilian Childress, assistant professor of physics at Bates, have developed a way to measure spin that avoids this problem.

On an October day that could have passed for August, Bates marked the 25th anniversary of its Olin Arts Center with a family arts festival. And while the attractions included a marching band, popcorn, balloon animals and juggling, the festivity was much more than just another day at the circus. The headliners, avant-garde marching band Asphalt Orchestra and the New Vaudeville act Two, managed both to honor the long traditions they represent and to show them in a new light.
