BOSON — wo bombs explod-ed in the crowded streets near theinish line o the Boston Marathonon Monday, killing three peopleand injuring more than 130 in abloody scene o shattered glass andsevered limbs that raised alarmsthat terrorists might have struck again in the U.S.A White House oicial speakingon condition o anonymity becausethe investigation was still unoldingsaid the attack was being treated asan act o terrorism.President Barack Obama vowedthat those responsible will “eel theull weight o justice.A senior U.S. intelligence oi-cial said two other bombs wereound near the end o the 26.2-milecourse in what appeared to be awell-coordinated attack.he twin blasts took place about10 seconds and about 100 yardsapart, knocking spectators and atleast one runner o their eet, shat-tering windows and sending denseplumes o smoke rising over thestreet and through the lutteringnational lags lining the course.Authorities shed no light on amotive or who may have carriedout the bombings, and police saidthey had no suspects in custody.Authorities in Washington saidthere was no immediate claim o responsibility. he FBI took chargeo the investigation.At Massachusetts GeneralHospital, Alisdair Conn, chie o emergency services, said: “his issomething I’ve never seen in my 25 years here ... this amount o carnage in the civilian population.his is what we expect rom war.”Some 23,000 runners took partin the race, one o the world’s oldestand most prestigious marathons.Boston Police CommissionerEdward Davis asked people to stay indoors or go back to their hotelrooms and avoid crowds as bombsquads methodically checked par-cels and bags let along the raceroute. He said investigators didn’tknow whether the bombs were hid-den in mailboxes or trash can, andthat authorities had received “nospeciic intelligence that anythingwas going to happen” at the race.“We still don’t know who didthis or why,” Obama said at theWhite House, adding, “Make nomistake: We will get to the bottomo this.”With scant oicial inorma-tion to guide them, members o Congress said there was little or nodoubt it was an act o terrorism.“We just don’t know whetherit’s oreign or domestic,” said Rep.Michael McCaul, R-exas, chair-man o the House Committee onHomeland Security.he attack may have been timedor maximum carnage: he our-hour mark is typically a crowdedtime near the inish line becauseo the slow-but-steady recreationalrunners completing the race andbecause o all the relatives andriends clustered around to cheerthem on.Te migration o monarch but-teries is a curious mystery o na-ture and leaves many wonderinghow the monarchs know where togo or what to do.In recent years, the depletiono many monarch habitats has ledto concern about their thinningmigrations. Tis spring marks thebeginning o the monarchs’ mi-gration back to the United States.Monarch Watch is a programthat promotes the creation o new monarch buttery habitats as wellas the creation o new ones. Teprogram began in1992 as an edu-cational out-reach pro-gram that engages researchers,students, volunteers and teachers.Orley “Chip” aylor, proessor o ecology and evolutionary biology at the University, has been the di-rector o Monarch Watch or 16years.“Migration is one o our greatmysteries; it’s one o the thingsthat we haven’t solved,” aylorsaid. “As scientists, this is a puzzle,and as private citizens, it’s a mar- vel. We want to see this migrationcontinue because it’s really one o the most magnicent biologicalphenomenon.”An area o concern or thesepopulations is that development,the use o herbicides and otherhuman actors has diminishedhabitats that the butteries rely onduring their migrations.“We’ve got a lot o problemshere in the United States,” aylorsaid. “We’re developing this coun-try at a very rapid pace and paying very little attention to wildlie. Weare losing something like 2.2 mil-lion acres a year o habitat in thiscountry due to development.”I eforts are not supported toprotect and create habitats, themonarch population will declineto extremely low levels. One im-portant actor in the monarch’ssurvival is the milkweed plant.Without it, the butteries are un-able to reproduce. In addition,without nectar rom owers, thebutteries cannot make the mi-gration to Mexico or the winter.“One o the things we’ve triedto do is to initiate a program thatencourages people tocreate more monarch habitats,”aylor said. “Almost everybody,i they own some property andhave a garden, can incorporatea ew milkweed plants into theirgarden.”aylor hopes that MonarchWatch can encourage people totake small steps to help monarchs,such as creating a simple buttery garden that includes milkweed.“Over the years, ewer and ew-er students seem to be connectedwith the outdoors,” aylor said.“We have to appreciate the actthat there are more than humanbeings on this planet. All o thislie around us sustains us, and isimportant or how we unction.”

With the end o the school yeararound the corner, both employ-ers and students are preparingor summer internships. Whethermajoring in business, journalism,graphic design or engineering,there are opportunities or any student, said Erin Wolram, assis-tant director o career networksat the University Career Center.Here are 10 tips students shouldknow beore diving into theirinternships.
1. It’s not too late to apply 
Although the prime time toapply or an internship is January through mid-April, companiesare still hiring, Wolram said.Students can cold-call companiesor ind postings on the KU CareerConnection website. Even locally,Debbie Snyder, senior humanresource consultant at newspaperpublisher he World Company,said the Lawrence Journal-Worldis still hiring or a couple internsor its news department.
2. naIl the IntervIew 
During an interview, Wolramsaid students should use pastexperiences to explain theirskills and abilities or the job.Additionally, she said, researchingthe background o the company shows your level o interest in apotential employer.“Let your employer know why you’re interested in an opportuni-ty in their organization,” Wolramsaid.Regardless o whether you’reoered a position, Wolram said,always send a personal thank-younote or email ater an interview.
3. Dress for success 
Wolram recommends wearinga suit to an interview, but shesaid business casual is acceptedin most industries. At he WorldCompany, business casual is thedress code or interns and regularemployees alike.“Employees are expected tomaintain an appropriate appear-ance that is business-like, neat andclean and as determined by therequirements o the area in whichthe employee works,” Snyder said.
4. Don’t be afraID to move 
While many internships areavailable in the Lawrence orKansas City areas, others may require temporarily relocating.Ater accepting an oer to work as a hardware engineering internor Microsot, Joseph Sandt, asenior rom Kansas City, Mo.,realized he would have to move toSeattle or the summer. In Sandt’scase, the company has arrangedhis housing near the oice.“he only Microsot campusdoing hardware engineering is inSeattle,” Sandt said. “For the jobI’m doing, moving to headquar-ters is necessary.”
5. act professIonally 
Besides dressing as a proes-sional, students should alsoremember to act the part.“You only get one chance tomake a good impression,” Snydersaid. “Attitude speaks loud andclear, so come in with a positiveattitude.”As or knowing how to reer toyour boss, Snyder said many man-agers will introduce themselves by their preerred name.“I recommend asking yourboss how they would preer to beaddressed, i still unclear,” Snydersaid.
6. be prepareD to Do real work 
he days o interns doingmenial tasks such as iling paper-work or getting coee or theirsuperiors are over, said DavidByrd-Stadler, director o employ-er relations & MBA career ser- vices at the University’s School o Business.“Many companies will hireinterns to work on special projectsor to perorm the same or simi-lar duties as regular employees,”Snyder said.
7. Don’t be afraID to speak up 
Even though students may beinterns, their ideas are still val-ued.“Interns can provide a reshperspective, new ideas and tech-nology to the company,” Snydersaid. “Interns and employees bothhave an opportunity to shareinormation and learn rom oneanother.”
8. treat the InternshIp lIke a three-month IntervIew 
Despite internships being tem-porary positions, Byrd-Stadlersaid many companies are lookingor uture ull-time employees.“Internships have become thisreal-world experience or stu-dents and an eight-to-12-week interview or the company,” Byrd-Stadler said.
9. work at a place you lIke 
While Byrd-Stadler recom-mends applying or internshipsconsistent with a students’ degree,he also suggests applying any-where a student interested inworking.“In a lot o places, a collegedegree is essential, but there’s nospeciic major they need,” Byrd-Stadler said.
10. learn what you Don’t want to Do 
Kylie Sheehy, a senior romDetroit, learned a lot rom hermechanical engineering intern-ship at MarkWest Energy in ulsa,Okla., last summer. She realizedshe wanted a job where she coulduse her communication skills— which was not a part o herexperience — especially now thatshe is preparing to graduate andsearch or a ull-time position.“I ound doing standard engi-neering work draining,” Sheehy said. “Because o the experience, Idecided I wanted to go into engi-neering sales.”

KU Students or Justice in theMiddle East (KU SJME) heldtheir rst “Justice Caé,” an eve-ning lled with social commen-tary by students and perormers,Monday evening in the Woodruf Auditorium o the Kansas Union.“Justice Caé is an event nighto spoken word and slam poetry,”said Salman Husain, a sopho-more rom Wichita and the eventcoordinator or KU SJME. “Temain ocus is about social justiceand solidarity. We had a lineupo student perormers rom di-erent backgrounds to talk abouttheir lie experiences.Mugabi Byenkya, a junior,started of his poem with a shrillscream to emphasize the emo-tions and struggles o what livingin ear o oppression is like.Stanisha “Nisha” Lott, knownby her stage name, Nisha Star,used reestyle to convey her emo-tions in her perormance.“Swallow your pride and digestthis knowledge; higher educationisn’t just college. Stop saying youcome rom nothing because youcome rom something,” Lott said.Te eatured artist was re-nowned spoken-word poet RemiKanazi, a Palestinian-Americanbased in New York City whospoke about oppression in hisperormance.KU SJME is a new organizationon campus. Its goal is to empha-size the perspectives o social jus-tice not only in the Middle East,but across the world.“Tere are problems that areuniversal to all humans acrossevery border,” Husain said. “Wewant to build coalitions and rep-resent all diferent walks o lie.”Over the last three weeks, KUSJME has been promoting theevent. Te group partnered withthe Black Student Union, the His-panic American Leadership Or-ganization and other student co-alitions ocused on social issues.Husain hopes that the eventwill be even bigger next year andthat students who attend will beindividually inspired to makechanges in their lives that afectthe society around them.

CHICAGO — Far-ung amily members, co-workers and riendsrantically used social media, cell-phones and even a “people nder”website Monday to try to learn theate o participants and spectatorsat the Boston Marathon, where twopeople were killed and dozens in- jured aer a pair o bombs explod-ed near the nish line o one o theworld’s great races.Te search was made more di-cult because heavy cellphone usecaused slow and delayed service.In an age connected by everythingdigital, the hours aer the blastsproduced a tense silence.At the race, 51-year-old JulieJeske o Bismarck, N.D., had n-ished about 15 minutes beore theexplosions and was getting oodabout two blocks away when sheheard two loud booms. She imme-diately tried to call her parents, butcould not place the call. A riendwas able to post on Facebook thatthey were OK, but reaching herparents was another worry.“I wasn’t able to call and I elt sobad,” Jeske said. “When I was -nally able to reach them, my momsaid she was just absolutely besidehersel with ear.”im Apuzzo o Seattle said hespent an agonizing 10 minutesrantically trying to call his girl-riend, Quinn Schweizer, who waswatching the marathon with herriends at the nish line. But whenhe kept getting a recording sayingthere was no service, he started toworry.Finally, she was able to call himto say she was sae.Google stepped in to help am-ily and riends nd their lovedones, setting up a site called GooglePerson Finder that allows users toenter inormation about someonewho was there. A ew hours aerthe explosion, the site indicated itwas tracking 3,600 records.
Major cities increase security after tragedy
