- Tiny insect, big honors. Ken Stewart, Professor Emeritus of biological sciences, was included on Outdoor Life magazine’s list of 25 people who have had a significant impact on hunting and fishing. His research on stoneflies, a critical forage insect for fish, makes him one of the world’s leading authorities on the water insect that is of special interest to trout fishermen. Texas has 30 species of stoneflies, including one that’s named for Stewart.
- Center stage. The North Texas Dancers performed on the main stage with the Black Eyed Peas in the Super Bowl XLV Halftime show. As part of the elite dance group, they wore silver LED-illuminated costumes with cubes atop their heads. February’s mega-production had a record-breaking audience of an estimated 111 million viewers worldwide.
