Summer schedule for TECH Daily ==> no Tuesday editions

Summertime is a slow news time for academia in general, and for HBCUs in particular. It's also a slow news time for Tech. So the DLL will reduce its schedule of daily publications until the week of August 1, 2016 by combining its Tuesday and Wednesday editions during this time frame. In other words, TECH Daily will only appear on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays ... :-)
