Tune in St. Patrick's Day at noon for a special encore airing of our session with Kilt The Messenger. In early 2009, in a dimly lit, smoke filled bar on the East Coast of Florida, Kilt the Messenger powered up their guitars, struck in their bagpipes and introduced a small crowd to a brand of indie punk rock, the likes of which few had heard before.

 Dogs suffering from heartworms are, in fact, infested by the organism Dirofilaria immitis, a parasitic nematode (roundworm) commonly referred to as the heartworm. The severity of this disease is directly dependent upon the number of worms present in the body, the duration of the infestation, and the response of the host (the infested dog is the host).

In a long career, Arturo Toscanini played cello under Giuseppe Verdi's baton at La Scala and conducted the NBC Symphony Orchestra in the age of high fidelity music recording. In between, he led the New York Philharmonic, just missed one of the great maritime disasters of all time, conducted Wagner at the Bayreuth Festival, got beaten up by the Fascists, and worked with several of the great voices of the operatic stage. We celebrate his 150th birthday this month, and we'll spend a couple of hours with the maestro this week up in the attic.

Florida Tech's President T. Dwayne McCay is working with faculty and staff to identify the 5 Pillars the University will focus on to maintain and improve the level of excellence at Florida Tech.
