USAV mourns passing of Dave Williams
Team USA
USA Volleyball is deeply saddened to confirm the passing of Dave Williams, its managing director of beach programs. Williams, a native of Brilliant, Ohio, and resident of Hermosa Beach, Calif., died May 14 with his family by his side in a Southern California hospital after a short battle with cancer. He was 55. "USA Volleyball has lost a wonderful employee, a wonderful human being and a dear friend with Dave's passing today," said USA Volleyball CEO Doug Beal. "I am having a terribly hard time digesting and accepting that Dave will not grace us with his wit, energy, passion and love of life anymore."

Vikings stadium will sport a clear roof
Finance & Commerce
The new Minnesota Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis won't have a retractable roof. But it will be flooded with light in a glass- and zinc-framed structure with a two-sided sloped roof resembling an ice shelf on a frozen lake. Bryan Trubey, principal at Dallas-based HKS, showed off renderings and videos of a stadium interior and concourses that will be bathed in light. Half of the roof will be made of transparent ethylene tetrafluoroethylene, or ETFE — a lightweight polymer best known for its use in the "Water Cube" aquatics center built for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Stadiums and entertainment venues across the nation routinely rely on low-paid, part-time security guards with spotty training and even criminal convictions.

Santa Clara stadium security to benefit from new hi-tech police communications
KPIX-TV
Santa Clara police will soon be armed with the latest communication technology in the law enforcement field.
