They also don't take a lot of power. Lab Director Dr. Michael Wicks says they only need the power equivalent to 1/100th of a Christmas tree bulb.</p> Wed, 18 Jun 2014 18:00:00 +0000 Ann Thompson 28075 at http://wvxu.org New UD lab proves this is not your grandfather's radar Flyers' NCAA run a PR boon for Dayton http://wvxu.org/post/flyers-ncaa-run-pr-boon-dayton <p></p><p>The Dayton Flyers' Men's NCAA basketball tournament run brought in more than just good press for the University of Dayton.</p><p>A <a href="http://daytonohio.gov/Documents/Flyers%20NCAA%202014%20Publicity%20Value.pdf" target="_blank">study</a> commissioned by two Dayton City Commissioners finds the team's unexpected success generated increased publicity for the city as well.</p><p></p> Wed, 07 May 2014 19:50:19 +0000 Tana Weingartner 26435 at http://wvxu.org Flyers' NCAA run a PR boon for Dayton Liquid Assets: Digging deep for water quality http://wvxu.org/post/liquid-assets-digging-deep-water-quality <p></p><p>Each day people from Lima to Cincinnati get their drinking water from an underground river known as the Great Miami Buried Valley Aquifer.
