Delaware Higher Education Ofﬁce As part of the Delaware Department of Education, the Delaware Higher Education Ofﬁce (DHEO) works to ensure that postsecondary education is accessible and affordable for Delaware residents by providing information and ﬁnancial assistance to students and their families. We administer 23 state-sponsored ﬁnancial aid programs, which include grants, scholarships, regional contracts, and professional incentive programs. Last year, 2,114 Delaware residents were awarded $4,252,800 through these programs. As a member of the Southern Regional Education board, Delaware is able to provide additional tuition savings for its residents through the Academic Common Market (ACM), a tuition-savings agreement among 15 southern states. ACM students attending college last year saved an average of $12,800 in tuition costs, totaling more than $1,340,000 in savings for the year. Since joining SREB in 1998, Delaware families have saved over $11,600,000 through the ACM program. To increase educational opportunities for Delawareans, DHEO works with state ofﬁcials to develop new ﬁnancial assistance programs. Twenty programs have been introduced since 1997: • Academic Common Market • Critical Need Scholarship • Delaware College Investment Plan • Delaware Institute for Dental Education & Research (DIDER) / Temple University Partnership • Delaware SEED Scholarship Program • Delaware State Loan Repayment Plan for Health Professionals • Delaware Teacher Corps • Democracy Project D.C. Fellows Program • Michael C. Ferguson Achievement Award • Governor’s Education Grant for Working Adults • Governor’s Education Grant for Unemployed Adults • Charles L.

Data is collected on enrollment, ﬁnancial aid, ﬁnance, and trends to meet state and federal mandates, regional contractual agreements, and national data...

ReThink911 Launches Global Public Awareness Campaign for 12th Anniversary of 9/11 The ReThink911 Campaign, sponsored by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, is a global public awareness campaign launched this week in an effort to spark a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. On a 54-foot-tall Times Square billboard and a variety of transit and outdoor advertising in Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Sydney and London, accompanied by citizen activist events all over the world, the campaign poses the question, “Did you know a 3rd tower fell on 9/11?” To this day, many people are not aware that a third skyscraper, 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, mysteriously collapsed in seven seconds a few hours after the World Trade Center Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Many reputable and credentialed technical professionals challenge the official report on this building’s collapse by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The ReThink911 campaign calls for a new investigation to answer questions about the collapse of Building 7 and the Twin Towers 12 years ago. “The official story of what happened at Ground Zero simply cannot be true,” said Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Founder Richard Gage. “More than 2,000 professional architects and engineers, along with family members of victims and thousands of concerned citizens, believe a truly independent investigation is...
F O L L O W I N G THE DEATH of Osama Bin Laden, many American young people across the country gathered on street comers and in front of the White House, some celebrating with chants of "U-S-A" and others singing the national anthem. Press coverage of the youthñil celebrators, many of them part of Generation Y or the Millennial Generation, renamed these young people the "9/11 Generation."' Newspaper accounts following Bin Laden's demise discuss him as "the common evil" that the Millennial Generation faced in much the same way as their grandparents had faced Hitler.2 One student remarks that Bin Laden's death is "the defining moment" of his generation.^ Nine-eleven, it appears, is a memorable moment for this generation. Over nine years earlier, on September 11, 2001,1 was also concemed about how young people would come to understand what came to be called "9/11." After spending the moming of September 11, 2001 watching television as the Twin Towers in New York collapsed, I arrived on campus to teach my lower-division history class, and was immediately informed that classes were cancelled for the day because of the "evil attacks." Since I regularly tell my students that "evil" is not a useful analytic term for the writing and understanding of history, I devised a questionnaire for my History 101 students to assess their understanding of the event."

Can a subcompact car dream of bigger things ? Some cars just dream bigger than others. Take Hyundai Accent. While it’s typically cross-shopped with sub-compacts like Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris, here’s the real story: Accent actually has more interior room than those cars’ larger siblings, Civic and Corolla. Accent is big on safety, too: Its long list of standard safety features includes a supplemental restraint system that keeps six airbags on guard to help protect you. Power? It’s got more horsepower than Toyota Yaris. Yet for all of its oversized accomplishments, Accent still sips fuel like a subcompact, with an EPA estimated rating of up to 36 miles per gallon (which bests the Honda Fit).1 And it’s backed by America’s Best Warranty, with a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and five years of 24-hour roadside assistance.2 Of course, there is one thing you’ll find out about the Hyundai Accent that’s not very big at all: Its sticker price.
