may be able to run it in the next day’s issue. Otherwise, the
deadline for submission is 1:00 p.m. two days before publication.
- Write the text for a general audience; try not to use technical
vocabulary and keep the length to 250 words or less.
- Include graphics (jpegs or gifs) with your submission. High
resolution is not necessary for the web.

more significant revisions are necessary, we will send the revised
