News Roundup

In Kenya, a faculty strike has shut down 5 of the 6 public universities (coverage is in The Chronicle of Higher Education; subscription required).

Finally, the GSOC Journal reported yesterday that the Chemistry action last month has paid off, with about 100 grad employees finally getting their expected pay instead of having to wait for May to receive it.
