What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
The Wescolite Student Newspaper Around Campus October 6, 2004 3 On The Rocks Campus Installs New Emergency Phones By Scott Day The Department of Environmental Sci ences and Program in Mathematics kicked off \On the Rocks” on September 20, with a presentation by Dr. Craig Zaspel titled \Nanomagnets and high-density information storage.\ \On the Rocks\ is a forum for the presen tation of topics of interest to the scientific community. Led by a different lecturer at each seminar, the series features presenta tions by University of Montana-Western fac ulty, students and local scientists.. The seminars, held Monday evenings at 4:15 pm in Block Hall Room 311, run ap proximately one hour and are followed by a question and answer session and an informal discussion. On Monday, October 4, Dr. Morrow pre sented the second seminar of the season titled \UM Western Undergraduates Curing Dis ease: Exciting Biomedical Research Oppor tunities Arrive in Dillon!.\ He discussed his research on cell biology of a patho genic yeast and the benefits of undergradu ate research. The remaining \On the Rocks\ semi nars are scheduled for the following dates: Oct. 25— Brandon Day and Emily Smith, students, \Internship Talk\ Oct. 29 - Dr. Laurie Hennerman, fac ulty, \Research Talk / Invasive species/ insects\ Nov. 15— Lynette Kemp, MT Dept, of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, Lewis & Clark Caverns, \Bats\ Dec. 6— Eli McIntosh, student, \In ternship Talk\ Dec. 13—Dale Salois, student, \The Return of the Swift Fox to the Blackfeet Reservation\ Two emergency phones were installed on the University of Montana-Western campus this past summer to provide students and faculty 24-hour security assistance. The emergency phones, located on bright blue freestanding poles, were installed outside of Main Hall and between the Student Union Building and the Swysgood Technology Center. The phones are connected to a local 911 dispatch and when activated provide the caller assis tance within 7 seconds. Following the replacement of on-campus pay phones with courtesy phones, ITS purchased the emergency phones and poles at a cost of $4000. Facility Services donated the time and man power required for the installation. Each emergency phone is equipped with a large red button that when activated dials a local 911 operator. The security phone poles are also equipped with a flashing strobe light to direct security to the location of the caller. ITS has plans to install additional phones on the campus to provide students convenient access to emergency assistance. As with any alarm system, there is potential that a student may trigger the alarm as a prank. The policy regarding misuse of the emergency phones is similar to the policy outlined in the UM-W Student Handbook: “Misuse of any fire equipment, starting fires, setting off false alarms, or failing to evacuate and/or hindering in the evacuation of others will result in disciplinary action and possible criminal action.” By Scott Calhoun F a s t F r i e n d l y a n d R e l i a b l e !
