The Daily Word in APD, melanoma and kindness

A USA Today article published yesterday quoted Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden recognizing "a systemic failure in ... ability to track employee misconduct." Eden went to say, "I believe there are people on the force who shouldn't be on the force.'' But Eden told USA Today that police union contracts make it difficult to enforce retroactive discipline within bounds of a union contract, stating "Yes, we may be stuck with them."

Today Albuquerque Police Officers Association President Stephanie Lopez told KOAT that she initially felt disappointed and angered that Eden would represent officers in this light. But Lopez and Eden have since talked and are now on the same page.

SolaranRX Inc. has licensed a groundbreaking method for diagnosing and treating melanoma. The process was developed by UNM Pharmaceutical Sciences and DermatologyAssociate Professor Dr. Yubin Miao. The technology involves a peptide that binds to melanoma cells which can be infused with imaging and therapeutic radionuclides to assess and treat melanoma.

Outfitted in full gear, Albuquerque firefighters climbed stairs 110 stories today in honor of those lost in the 9/11 terror attacks.

Starting next week Alaska Airlines will offer nonstop daily flights from Albuquerque to Seattle.

On this day of remembrance, a quote by Vonnegutian protagonist Eliot Rosewater seems appropriate: "Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of babies: God damn it, you've got to be kind."

The Daily Word in Waffle House splurges, totally real hoverboards and Justin Bieber's junk

Sometimes, it pays off to be bad at your job. Just ask Mae Keane, whose boss told her to use her lips to sharpen the point of a radioactive paint brush. She refused, got fired and, unlike many of her more cooperative coworkers who died in the 1920s, lived to be 107.

PHOTOS

An Education Without Borders

Winning photograph speaks volumes

Winning photo by UNM art education graduate student Junfu Han
Winning photo by UNM art education graduate student Junfu Han

An older Latina woman stands clutching a telephone pole painted with colors of the American flag in a border town of the Southwestern United States. She’s expressionless except for a squinting of her dark eyes during the midday sun. Her gaze is slightly off camera and a silver cross is half hidden under her blouse. Her left wrist is bandaged, yet she doesn’t seem broken. Rather, she's solid and stoic with an unassuming strength. The author of this photograph is Junfu Han, a UNM Art Education graduate student and the winner of the 1st Annual International Education Week photo contest.

During the week of Nov. 11, UNM’s Global Education Office hosted International Education Week, and unlike previous years, this year’s event included the photo contest. The week focuses on the benefits of studying abroad and celebrates the diversity of UNM students. Photographers entered the contest, whose theme was “International Experiences,” with portraits, landscapes, architecture, street photography, abstract or experimental pictures. Han’s striking composition of the Latina woman in the Chihuahuita community in El Paso, TX was declared the winner with its portrayal of American mythos and Mexican experiences on the border.
