USF is joining the ranks of Yale, Johns Hopkins and UCLA by taking part in the National Institute of Health's three-point-two billion dollar "National Children's Study." The study will follow 100-thousand children around the country from before birth to the age of 21 to see the effect the interaction of genes and the environment has on their health.

The long contest for president is over and the 111th Congress is nearly set. In Florida, the next state Legislature is decided and voters have amended the state's constitution several more times. Now attention turns to moving our communities, our state and our nation forward. We take some time this week on Florida Matters to visit again with two names you'll remember from their reports as delegates to the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. And we'll get some analysis about what the election results mean for the Bay area and for Florida.
Elsa Moravek was born in Argentina in 1935. That year her father, originally from Prague, was selling arms in South America and befriended Albert Goering, selling arms for Germany. Several years later, these men would work from Romania with resistance groups to aid those fleeing the Nazis in Europe. Elsa recently spoke with her husband about her father's experience during this time, and her father's alliance with Goering.
