Also: Of the thousands of ways robots can be used today, teaching them to play soccer may not seem to be one of the best ones; but this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM tells you how a research program at USF's College of Engineering that culminates in a match between two teams of robots built out of Legos is increasing knowledge while drawing new students to the subject.

police officer St. Petersburg Mayor's Race
This week we're taking a serious look at the state of crime in our area. We'll ask local law enforcement to weigh in on the trends they're seeing, and discuss ways we can all avoid becoming victims. And we'll take a look at the relationship between education and crime. Then Larry Elliston introduces us to a former convict who turned his life around and hopes to inspire others to do the same.
Also: A couple of weeks ago, 10 St. Petersburg residents were vying to be the city’s next mayor. Now, that list has only two names on it. The winner will inherit a list of unresolved issues, like deciding the future of downtown -- including BayWalk and the Pier -- and whether to build a new baseball stadium. We’ll meet the candidates and find out what they think, this week.
