Question of the Day
MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County Zoo is welcoming its first western lowland gorilla born at the zoo since 1992.
The zoo announced Thursday that the baby gorilla, named Kassiu, was born March 19 to 13-year-old mother Naku and 27-year-old father Cassius.
Kassiu is the first offspring of both Naku and Cassius. Zoo officials say both the mother and baby are doing well.
The zoo’s animal care staff is fairly certain the infant is a female but hasn’t had a chance to get a detailed look yet.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1rG5M7Vhttp://bit.ly/1rG5M7V ) reports the baby joins three adult female and three adult male gorillas at the zoo.

SOMERS, Wis. (AP) - The University of Wisconsin-Parkside says the personal data of thousands of students may have been exposed due to a hacker attack on the school’s server.
The school notified students Thursday. Potentially at risk are the names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and Social Security numbers of students who were admitted or enrolled at the university since fall of 2010.
The Journal Times (http://bit.ly/1jaVKaKhttp://bit.ly/1jaVKaK ) reports the total number of students affected could be as high as 15,000.
Campus Technology Services staff doing routine maintenance discovered earlier this month that computer hackers had installed a virus on a university server.
University officials are notifying students so they can take steps to protect their identity and monitor their credit reports and financial statements.
