Campus Pools Set To Close, Re-Open

Penn State’s pools at the Natatorium and the White Building will be closed for about a week in a rollout-style schedule starting on March 23rd. The pools will be emptied in order to install a new drain system in accordance with Federal Legislation.The full schedule is as follows:

Pool: Indoor Nat Close Date: March 23, 2009 Open Date: March 30, 2009
Pool: White Building Close Date: March 30, 2009 Open Date: April 6, 2009
Pool: Outdoor Nat Close Date: April 1, 2009 Open Date: April 8, 2009

Under H.R. 1721 (Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act), all public pools are required to install a new kind of drain to prevent deaths, especially among children. The Act [summary found here], which was passed by the House of Representatives in October of 2007, was never actually made into a law. The proposed legislation was on the Senate calendar for future vote, but since Sessions of Congress last a mere two years, all unreviewed legislation is cleared from the agenda when a new Congress takes office. According the the Library of Congress, the Sponsor(s) can opt to reintroduce the bill in the new Congressional Session.

You can call 814-865-3884 or 814-865-1433 for more information on this topic or to check the status of a particular pool.

Question of the Day: Sweet Mobile Apps

AT&T is sponsoring a pretty cool competition in which entrants can win $10,000 cash in scholarship money for creating a mobile device application. Teams of up to four people can enter a custom-built application for the purpose of e-learning.  The rules state that the “innovating e-learning mobile app” should be functional across multiple platforms. Submissions are due by September 15, 2010 and so far there are only ten teams signed up. So my question for you is:

If you could develop a mobile device application, what would it do?
