Kirkwood students pledge not to text and drive

Wednesday, 18 September 2013 07:51 Published in Local News

"It can wait." That's the message at Kirkwood High School where students are getting a crash course in the dangers of distracted driving.

The entire student body at Kirkwood High School is taking a pledge today not to text and drive as part of a national campaign. 16-year-old Gabe Masi went through the texting-and-driving obstacle course set up in the Kirkwood parking lot. He offers this advice to other teens who might be texting in the car.

"Never do it. I definitely learned my lesson today," said Masi. "A pedestrian could be a friend, it could be a family member. You never know what could happen."

According to AT&T, 78% of student drivers say they're not likely to text and drive if a friend tells them it's wrong or stupid. 90% say they'd stop if a friend in the car asked them to.

Mizzou researchers find genome that protect soybeans

Monday, 16 September 2013 09:56 Published in Local News

Researchers from the University of Missouri are making strides to help protect the valuable soybean crop. Scientists at Mizzou, the University of Georgia, and the Beijing Genome Institute have identified two genes can help defend soybeans from the root-knot nematode parasite, which causes more than $50 million of annual yield loss. The research was funded by the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Counsil. The United States is the world's largest producer of soybeans, growing roughly 33% of the world's supply.
