This holiday season, give the gift of the future...

For family and friends in Utah: If you don’t have a college savings account for your kids, now is a great time to open one. When you open an account with the Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP) at uesp.org beginning November 25 and by December 30, 2011, enter promotion code 1112HOL, and contribute at least $25, Zions Bank will match the first $25 you contribute to your account. To qualify for the match, you and the beneficiary must both be new to UESP, and you both must be Utah residents.

This year, 55 Ph.D. theses with names like “Carbon Nanotube Growth on Challenging Substrates” or “Cosmological Simulations of Galactic Disc Assembly” were turned into experimental dance by their authors, videotaped and then judged.

Go, watch, be amazed.
