BTN LiveBIG: Illinois professor sinks his teeth into research

Take a moment and picture in your mind a college biology laboratory… Did you envision a crossbow shooting arrows into ballistics gelatin? Probably not. However, that was the recent setup for Philip Anderson, assistant professor of animal biology at the University of Illinois. Anderson — along with researchers Jeffrey LaCosse from Charles E. Jordan High School in Durham, N.C., and Mark Pankow of North Carolina State University — studied how various creatures in the wild use their fangs, claws, tentacles and other appendages to puncture animals and materials for food and survival. The subject matter may seem bizarre to the

BTN LiveBIG: Penn State student learns at ‘glacial’ pace

It’s an experience that, at first blush, seems ideal for outdoor enthusiasts: Spend your days skiing, rappelling and ice climbing in a wintry wilderness. But there are a handful of downsides … sudden snowstorms and hidden crevasses, for example. Oh, and polar bears. Still, there’s nowhere else Penn State graduate student Kiya Riverman would rather be. She and her colleagues in the Penn State Ice and Climate Exploration (PSICE) are sitting on top of the world — literally — while researching glacial hydrology in Svalbard, a remote chain of islands roughly halfway between the northern coast of Norway and the

BTN LiveBIG: The 'historic' life of baseball's Bud Selig

Allan “Bud” Selig, one of most accomplished alumni in the history of the University of Wisconsin, seems to have done about as much as a person can in one lifetime. He’s served in the U.S. Army. He’s sold cars. He’s owned a professional sports team. He’s been the Commissioner of Major League Baseball — and now, the first-ever Commissioner Emeritus in his “retirement.” And yet, until recently, he felt like his career wasn’t quite complete. Despite all his achievements, he hadn’t fulfilled a longtime dream, one that he brought to Wisconsin’s Madison campus as a freshman back in the early

BTN LiveBIG: Cornhusker couple delivers healthy habits in a box

For Paul and Stephanie Jarrett, there’s no such thing as “too close to home.” The Nebraska natives both graduated from the University of Nebraska, which was also where they met. Now, this husband-and-wife duo runs their own company just two blocks from the Lincoln campus. That company is Bulu Box, a subscription-based business that sends its users monthly boxes containing various samples of supplements, vitamins, nutritious snacks and other products made to improve health in some way. The Jarretts came up with the idea for Bulu Box after running a half-marathon in San Francisco almost four years ago. “We finished

BTN LiveBIG: Buckeyes battling food insecurity

If you took all the children in Ohio who don’t have regular access to food and brought them to Columbus, you would be able to fill Ohio Stadium six times over and still have a line outside. Bruce McPheron, Ohio State’s interim executive vice president and provost, shared that factoid at the inaugural Buckeye Summit in mid-April. More than 600 researchers, students and alumni gathered in Columbus for the day-long dialogue about tackling the issue of food insecurity at home and abroad. Attendees participated in roundtable discussions and listened to presentations from keynote speakers. Additionally, 39 percent of the people

BTN LiveBIG: Portrait of an artist as a Hoosier

Joel Washington has never let go of his dreams, and he hopes that his artwork inspires others to do the same. An employee of Indiana University for 27 years who currently serves as a custodian, Washington has been making artwork since he was a child. The primarily self-taught painter now has pieces hanging all over the Bloomington campus, including a portrait of jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery in the Indiana Memorial Union. Washington originally planned on painting the portrait for himself since he went to school with Montgomery’s kids while growing up in Indianapolis. However, after a request for a new

BTN LiveBIG: Michigan engineers accelerate development of smarter cars

During football and basketball games, BTN LiveBIG will spotlight notable examples of research, innovation and community service from around the conference. In-Game stories will provide more background on these features, and the opportunity to view the videos again. The car gradually moves forward, then picks up a bit of speed before turning left onto a gravel road. It slows down a bit as it passes over a railroad crossing, then makes a few more turns and lane changes as it maneuvers its way into downtown. All of a sudden, a pedestrian darts out into the street from between two parked

BTN LiveBIG: Wisconsin has a way with words

You may not understand the exact meaning of all these words, but give it your beatenest. We’re not going to try to explain everything from a to izzard*. But, if you’re not an aginner**, we promise this won’t be a rantum scoot. You will, of course, be forgiven if you can’t place all of the words and phrases in the preceding paragraph. In fact, if you’re not from the Ozarks circa 1907, you might not know that to give something your “beatenest” is to give it your best effort. Or, if you’ve never taken a trip unbound by destination around

BTN LiveBIG: This Maryland Day, Terps hunger for big impact

Part carnival. Part expo. All fun. It’s Maryland Day, which happens tomorrow at the University of Maryland’s campus in College Park. Along with games, activities and entertainment, Maryland Day features information about a variety of student-run organizations at the university. And Terps Against Hunger, fresh off of its win in Maryland’s annual Do Good Challenge, is looking to make another big splash at the event tomorrow. “[Maryland Day] is an invitation to the community to see what the university’s all about,” said Josh Turskey, a sophomore majoring in architecture and the current vice president of Terps Against Hunger. “We’re opening

BTN LiveBIG: Purdue 'rolls' out new partnership to develop tomorrow's jet engineers

One is known for Neil Armstrong and global engineers. The other is known for powering the world’s aircraft and producing exclusive luxury automobiles. Together, they’re planning to create the jet aircraft of the future. Purdue University’s campus in West Lafayette, Ind., is about 4,000 miles from Rolls-Royce’s global headquarters in London, but the company also maintains major engineering, design and manufacturing operations in Indiana and Virginia. While the geographic and cultural complexities among the two organizations might make a research and development partnership seem problematic, there’s actually a strong foundation for that kind of relationship. For one thing, more than
