High temperatures coupled with stress can be a deadly combination. Just in time for the start of the University’s academic session, the U.Va. Police Department installed 13 life-saving automated external defibrillators in their fleet of patrol cars. The devices, which were purchased for $21,759, deliver an electrical shock to a malfunctioning heart in the event of a cardiac arrest. (Aug. 19)

NFL players return to Grounds, greet fans
Two of U.Va.’s top National Football League alumni drew a crowd of about 75 to the University Bookstore on July 14 for an autograph session. Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Farrior (far right), the runner-up for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year last season, and New Orleans Saints starting quarterback Aaron Brooks (foreground) participated at the invitation of their former Cavalier teammate Chris Harrison, himself a former NFL player. Harrison co-owns a Nextel cellular telephone franchise, and the event kicked off a new business partnership with the bookstore. (July 19)
