By Diana LaMattina Staff writer A motorcyclist traveling about 100 mph died Saturday afternoon after he collided with a car in Camillus, according to the Onondaga County Sheriffs Office. Douglas Tracy, 21, of Camillus, was pronounced dead at the scene. His 2004 Suzuki motorcycle was split in half. The front tire and handle bars were about 10 feet in front of the car, while the rest of the bike was off to the side. Another motorcyclist, Adam Wells, 21, of Camillus, was traveling near Tracy on a 2002 Suzuki motorcycle, also going about 100 mph, deputies said. He was seriously injured when he struck the same car at about p.m. at the intersection of West Genesee Street and Winding Way. Wells was in serious condition after undergoing surgery at University Hos- pital Saturday night, said nursing su- pervisors. Here's how the crash happened, according to Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin Walsh: Three motorcyclists riding west on West Genesee Street were doing stunts at a red light at the corner of Vanida Road. A Camillus police officer saw them and turned onto West Genesee Street with his lights and sirens on. Two cars between the police officer and the motorcyclists pulled over.

Today, universities push family-friendly policies as one way to lure more female scientists to their cant puses. Schools also are coordinating efforts to boost the number of female candidates for faculty positions. Schools are also trying to extend the pipeline down the road with programs that entice high school girls to consider math and science careers and mentor women who choose science or engineering majors when they reach college.
