In his “Unknown Stories of WNY,” WGRZ-TV Daybreak co-anchor Pete Gallivan did a feature story on former Canisius chemistry instructor and DuPont researcher Dr. Joseph Shivers. Shivers will be inducted into the National Inventors’ Hall of Fame on May 3 for his groundbreaking invention of Lycra, generically known as Spandex. Joesph Bieron, PhD, professor emeritus of chemistry was interviewed for the story.

Watch the story here.

The Sun published four short stories by Mick Cochrane, PhD, chair and professor of English. The stories are based on the All-College Honors “Last Lecture” he presented in March 2015.

Cochrane’s lecture was part of a series inspired by Randy Pausch’s book The Last Lecture. Pausch was a computer-science professor at Carnegie Mellon University who, while facing a terminal diagnosis, spoke directly to his students and colleagues about the things that matter most.

The Sun is an national, independent, ad-free magazine that publishes personal essays, short stories, interviews, poetry and photographs which explore the challenges we face in life and the moments when we rise to meet them.
