Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A Rutgers University dean who took part in the search for a new athletic director says she’s “mystified” and “dumbfounded” that a search firm didn’t find red flags about the woman who was chosen for the job.
It’s been reported this week that volleyball players complained to the University of Tennessee that Julie Hermann humiliated them and mentally abused them when she was their coach in the 1990s.
Hermann is slated to take over next month at an athletic department recovering from revelations that a former basketball coach used anti-gay slurs and pushed and kicked players during practices.
School of Management and Labor Relations Dean Susan Schurman says it’s the job of a search firm to find problems like that in job candidates’ past.
The university has stood behind Hermann.

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.

NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
