Students IM libraries to ask questions, get infoALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Two Lehigh Valley universities are using instant messaging technology as the latest way for students to ask questions and get information from the college library. At Moravian College in Bethlehem, students can send a question from their home or dorm through America Online's instant messenger. A librarian on duty at Reeves Library will respond within minutes.

Lehigh University also has an InstantService, which allows librarians to send journal articles or Web pages to students over the chat medium. Moravian librarian Wendy Juniper says the technology is a way to engage students and connect with them through a medium that is familiar to them. She says library officials see them chatting on A-I-M with their friends on the library computers all the time. Juniper said the library staff figured that would be easier than teaching students how to use a new program. --- Information from The Morning Call, http //www.mcall.com 2005 Associated Press.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) _ City officials are considering whether to
expand its smoking ban on city property beyond the current
regulations, which apply only to City Hall.
City-owned parks and buildings could go smoke-free next year,
according to the city health bureau.
Councilman Gordon Mowrer is pushing an initiative to make all
buildings in Bethlehem smoke-free but health bureau officials see a
smoking ban on city property as more feasible.

PHILADELPHIA, Dec 02, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Philadelphia chapter
of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) awarded Toplin
Publimmer programmes. We have also offered summer
programme at St Hughes College in Oxford, England and field trips to
various destinations in Europe and in the Gulf," Dr. Suhair added.

Starting with a class of 120 students in three majors in 1999, the
college now has close to 600 students in five majors. It targets at
least 200 more students for enrolment for the coming academic year.
"There is a lot of interest in the community in our college and what
it offers. The success of our programmes is also related to the fact
that our majors were chosen after a feasibility study in the community
and survey among high school students as well as among prospective
employers as to what fields they most need skilled professionals in,"
she explained. "All our graduates have gone on to higher studies or
are hired in challenging positions with excellent salaries, often
before they graduated from college," she added.

Last March, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued its
first-ever restrictions on mercury emissions from coal-fired power
plants. The new regulations, long opposed by the power industry, which
feared the expense of control devices, order a 23 percent cut by 2010
and a nearly 69 percent reduction by 2018.

But meeting these goals may not be as costly and difficult as first
thought, if research results from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa.,
can be applied. In tests at three East Coast power plants, flue-gas
emissions of mercury have been slashed by as much as 70 percent
without depressing plant performance or boosting fuel costs.

U.S. power plants spew 40 tons of mercury yearly.

The system under testing changes the operation within the boiler to
promote the oxidation of mercury in the flue gas so that it can be
absorbed in the fly ash. When oxidized in this way, the mercury can be
readily captured by common pollution control equipment, such as
scrubbers or filters.

One of the developers of the system, Carlos Romero of Lehigh's Energy
Research Center, estimates that such a system could save a 250 MW
coal-fired power plant as much as $2 million a year in mercury control
costs.

The research will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal
Fuel.
