10 years later, Eric Chason releases memoir to remember daughter Lillian

In the 28 days that former UNC student Lillian Chason spent in the hospital battling the H1N1 flu, her father kept a journal. He planned to tell her all about it once she got better. Now, 10 years after Chason's death, her father has adapted that journal into a memoir with stories of her childhood, which he will read at Flyleaf Books on Jan. 29.

The odd traditions of the Nacirema: Was MLK a communist?

"My hypothesis on why Naciremans often omit Dr. King’s dissenting opinion on capitalism is due to a fear of its implications. Indeed, there has been significant progress within, and cooperation among, Nacireman tribes since the '60s. However, there is still much more that needs to be done."

From the '60s to today, UNC continues growing its relationship with NASA

UNC has had a strong relationship with NASA for over 50 years. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin trained at Morehead Planetarium before embarking on the Apollo 11 mission, and now, the University still provides valuable research, education, experts and more to NASA. One of these experts is Dr. Stephan Moll, a UNC blood research expert who helped NASA flight surgeons treat an astronaut who had a blood clot in space. NASA also shows substantial interest in connecting with UNC students, and the relationship between the agency and the University is continuing to grow.
