Abstract:
North Carolina’s Public Television could be one of the best given the state’s wealth, investment in education, and protection from one of the South’s leading universities – but it isn’t. The reasons why the University of North Carolina will not commit to making the TV station one of the best is explored. Programming is currently expanding and the station recently won several awards.

Abstract:
North Carolina State University’s Chancellor Bruce Poulton has resigned after The News & Observer and the NCAA found that the university was not holding athletes to the same academic standards as other students. Poulton is blaming his resignation on Raleigh’s newspaper for targeting him. While some agree, internal NCSU memos and Poulton’s actions suggest a conflict of interest. The money and power associated with a successful sports program seems to have caused Poulton to allow the rules and academic standards to be ignored for athletes.

Abstract:
Cotton is on the comeback trail in North Carolina and other Southern states. High-tech research developed no-iron polyester fabrics that almost brought about cotton's demise, and high-tech research, much of it conducted at the Research Triangle, is contributing to its revival. New fabric blends create a new demand for cotton clothing; new fashion uses are being found; mills are changing to process the fiber more cheaply and effectively; and farm suppliers are selling more equipment to harvest the crop.

Abstract:
Eleven years after enactment of North Carolina’s Natural Death Act, which recognizes the need for limited treatment in certain situations, hospitals are still grappling with how to care for the dying and with the ethical question of when to cease care. Strict hospital policies further complicate the dilemma. Consequently, dying patients often are over-treated, their wishes for limited care overlooked.
