Park City is a trails mecca – and along with that comes a lot of trail etiquette that needs to be observed to keep safety and enjoyment intact.  That said, the Mtn Trails Foundation addresses concerns that have arisen on a few trails like Mid Mtn and Spiro as these popular trails are seeing construction closures and re-do’s to accommodate heavy trail use.  Lynn Ware Peek has more.

The development of quantum computers has been limited by the ability to increase the number of quantum bits, or qubits, that encode, store and access large amounts of data.  We speak with Dr. Jason Amini of the Georgia Tech Research Institute, about a new device that allows more electrodes to be placed on a chip - an important step that could help increase qubit densities and bring the world one step closer to a quantum computer. 

John Wells and Lynn Ware Peek speak with Sue Armstrong, author of the book, "P53: The Gene that Cracked the Cancer Code."  Her book tells the story of the discovery of a most remarkable gene - p53 - and of medical science's mission to unravel its mysteries to get to the heart of what happens in our cells when they turn cancerous.
