AEG meeting at the Linda Hall Library
AEG member and UMKC Professor Emeritus Dr. Richard Gentile recently provided a gallery talk of the Paleo Exhibition, presented by the Linda Hall Library, to the Kansas City-Omaha Section of the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists. There were 25 members in attendance to learn about life in the Kansas City area as far back as 300 million years ago.

Their visit was highlighted in the Sept. 1 issue of Hedgehog Express, the library's e-news publication. Dr. Gentile also co-curated the exhibition, along with Eric Ward, vice president for public programs at Linda Hall Library.

The Linda Hall Library is a guardian of the collective intellectual heritage with regard to science, technology and engineering disciplines; a destination for advanced research and scholarship; and a center for public education in the sciences. Additionally, the library's grounds are maintained as an urban arboretum that is open to the public for education and enjoyment.

Los Angeles Times
A proposed state tax credit for earthquake retrofits passed the Senate on Tuesday, clearing a major hurdle for a bill that would ease the burden of strengthening thousands of at-risk buildings across California. The proposal, which passed the state, Senate 37-1, would give property owners a 30 percent tax break on the cost of seismic retrofitting.
