#links# Kansas just beat a top 15 team - so why are fans so disappointed in its performance? Sometimes it's shocking to see how a screenwriter changes your favorite novel for the big screen. I remember reading To Kill A Mockingbird" and being surprised to find out that Arthur 'Boo' Radley talked to the children. They changed this in the screenplay and I believe not having him speak throughout the story created a mystery that added much to the movie's appeal. I can see how fans of the novel could be a little perplexed at what Stanley Kubrick did but you must admit he did an unbelievable job and Stephen King really couldn't say much about the alterations as he gave his permission to the director Warner Brothers chose to film it.

Launched at SC07, the Broader Engagement Program provides a number of opportunities and activities to help broaden the engagement of individuals from around the globe, in groups and disciplines that traditionally have been underrepresented in high performance computing or at the SC Conference series. Grants will be available to support participation in the SC08 Technical Program. In addition to complimentary conference registration, grant recipients will be reimbursed for their SC08 lodging and transportation expenses, up to an agreed upon amount. Applications are encouraged from those in all computing-related disciplines, including those with backgrounds in research, education and industry. Primary consideration will be given to applicants from groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in high performance computing, such as African-Americans, Hispanics, indigenous people and women.
