By Brett Vito

DENTON -- Anthony Wallace charged through the middle of Iowa's offensive line Saturday and arrived just in time -- meeting a ball skittering across the turf at Kinnick Stadium.

Chasing that fumble in North Texas' game against Iowa was a situation Wallace seemed built to handle against a high-profile opponent on the big stage of a Big Ten venue.

The thick-built 6-foot linebacker was once a top college prospect at Skyline, traits that made him a bit of an odd fit as a public area attendant at the W Dallas-Victory Hotel in 2013.

Majority at UT campus carry forum say: Keep guns out of classroom

By Tom Benning

AUSTIN — A strong majority of speakers at the University of Texas at Austin’s first campus carry forum on Wednesday night voiced concern about the contentious law that will allow licensed Texans to carry concealed handguns in campus buildings.

But since lawmakers didn’t allow public universities to totally opt out of campus carry — as private schools can — many of those opposed to the proposal focused more on imploring school officials to make classrooms and other specific areas gun-free.

“I’m here to say as emphatically as I possibly can: Guns don’t belong in classrooms,” said Joan Neuberger,...

Iron-gallium alloy shows promise as a power-generation device

An alloy first made nearly two decades ago by the U. S. Navy could provide an efficient new way to produce electricity. The material, dubbed Galfenol, consists of iron doped with the metal gallium. In new experiments, researchers from UCLA, the University of North Texas (UNT), and the Air Force Research Laboratories have shown that Galfenol can generate as much as 80 megawatts of instantaneous power per square meter under strong impacts. The team describes the findings, which could lead to the development of wireless impact detectors and other applications, in a paper in the Journal of Applied Physics...
