The new KU staff has settled into things in Lawrence, and the Jayhawks have started to branch out in recruiting.

Bill Self picks second-best KU basketball team after '08 title squad
"The team with the [Morris] twins and with Cole and Sherron [Collins], I mean that was a No. 1-overall seed in the tournament," Self continued, speaking on 2009-10 squad. "Of course we exited early. That had to be up there. But I think the next-best team that we've had is the team when Frank [Mason] was a senior and Devonte' [Graham] was a junior and Josh [Jackson] was a freshman. ...

What America Didn't Understand About Its Longest War - POLITICO
As the United States leaves Afghanistan after 20 years of war, there can be little doubt that we lost the war — or to put it more gently, did not attain our objectives. In recent weeks, the Taliban have advanced across the north of the country. Bereft of U.S. support, the Afghan army and police have reportedly lost more than two dozen districts over the course of a month and are now fighting on the outskirts of key cities such as Kandahar and Mazar-e-Sharif. Senior U.S. officials have warned of a civil war, while intelligence reports are said to forecast the fall of the Afghan government — which the United States has worked to strengthen for two decades — within a year.

Never Put This on Your Meat After Barbecuing, CDC Warns
Cooking raw meat comes with its risks. You may think you've covered all the bases by carefully handling the raw meat separately, but there's another component you might be forgetting. Any juice, marinade, sauce, or other liquid that has touched raw meat should never be put on your food once it's off the barbecue.
