RESEARCHERS FIND EVIDENCE OF WARMING CLIMATE IN OHIO
Summer nights in Ohio aren't cooling off as much as they used to - it's likely
a sign of climatic warming across the state, researchers say. Jeffrey Rogers,
OSU professor of geography led the new study, which found that average summer
nighttime low temperatures in Ohio have risen by about 1.7 degrees Celsius
(about 3 degrees Fahrenheit) since the 1960s. The change is due to the heat
and humidity - coupled with increased cloudiness at night.

TO PROTECT PRIVACY RIGHTS, KEY/CARD ELIMINATES USE OF SSN
Given the concern surrounding privacy and identify theft, the Key/Card Control
Center has eliminated the use of Social Security Numbers as a means of identification.
As of Monday (10/1), Facilities Operations and Development has upgraded the
three systems - Lenel, MDI and Keystone - that manage card access and brass
keys to utilize alternative forms of identification. It is no longer necessary
to provide SSN when requesting card access and brass keys. Faculty and staff
will use their OSU employee ID and students will need to provide their name.#
as an identifier. For Key Card/Control Center information, visit http://fod.osu.edu/kccc/.
