Note to our readers: Recently, Google/blogspot seems on occasion to be attaching links to key words in our blog that lead to ads for goods and services that have nothing to do with the story. So unless we say it's a link to something, it was put there by some computer. Example: We might use the word "student" in an article referring to some campus or UC event. If the word is highlighted as a link, it will probably take you to an ad for some trade school.
UPDATE: The links referred to above seem to have disappeared for now. Whether they will reappear or just appear sometimes is unknown. Again, we don't control this matter but when we add links, there is typically a reference in our posting.
