Afternoon Roundup

Written by

A few items from here, there, and everywhere:

-Columbia’s duPont Broadcast News Awards were announced January 13 and are being presented on campus today. Perhaps predictably, the most awards went to PBS, with NBC the only major network to win an award. What, no love for Katie?

-Columbia medical researchers, working with doctors from B.U. and the University of Toronto, have discovered a gene that has been connected to Alzheimer’s. Congratulate the next med student you see getting a coffee in Strokos.

-And while Maggie Gyllenhall CC ’98 was nominated for a Golden Globe (she lost Monday night to Helen Mirren), her brother Jake (a Columbia dropout) has starred in the latest Saturday Night Live video to make the rounds on the Internet. After seeing this, you might understand the rumor that he was rejected from the Varsity Show.
