Archaeology program connects the past and present

first_imgCategories:Campus CommunityAcademics Published: July 21, 2016 For Patrick Cruz, studying archaeological sites in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico this summer was a way to hone his skills.But the trip also allowed Cruz, a CU Boulder archaeology graduate student, to retrace the journey his Tewa ancestors made centuries ago.“My interest in the subject matter is very personal,” said Cruz. “I am interested in how Tewa peoples arrived, how they adapted to their new landscape, what social changes took place, what material and social traits survived the migrations from Colorado to New Mexico and what didn’t.”Cruz was one of 13 undergraduate and graduate students who participated in CU Boulder’s archaeological field school in June, led by CU Boulder anthropology assistant professor Scott Ortman. Students began the month-long program excavating an ancient pueblo site in the Ute Mountain Ute reservation in Colorado and then traveled to the Pueblo of Pojoaque in New Mexico, where they worked alongside tribal members of all ages identifying pottery, mapping sites, collecting data and learning about native traditions and history.To read the full story, visit the Office for Outreach and Engagement website.Photo: CU Boulder archaeology students Samantha Linford, Kaitlyn Davis and Patrick Cruz at an ancestral site in northern New Mexico.center_img Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more

Irish Prime Minister Re-Registers as Medical Practitioner So He Can Join the COVID-19 Response Team

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreCitizens and news outlets around the world are praising Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar for re-registering as a doctor with the national health service in order to offer an extra hand in fighting the novel coronavirus outbreaks.Prior to going into politics and being removed from the medical register in 2013, Varadkar reportedly spent seven years working as a junior doctor at St. James’s Hospital and Connolly Hospital in Dublin.Trained as a general practitioner, Varadkar rejoined the medical register in March so he could offer up his services to the country’s Health Service Executive once a week. According to Irish broadcaster RTE, part of the prime minister’s work will involve conducting phone assessments in order to free up the work load of hospital front line workers.RELATED: Doctor Left Crying After Officer Pulls Her Over For Speeding But Gives Her Face Masks Instead of a Ticket“Many of his family and friends are working in the health service. He wanted to help out even in a small way,” said a government spokesperson.Euronews goes on to say that Varadkar may be the first European Union leader to personally offer his assistance to medical workers fighting the COVID-19 outbreaks.This is just one of many positive stories and updates that are coming out of the COVID-19 news coverage this week.

Fifth Minority Mentoring Picnic set for November

first_img September 1, 2008 Regular News Fifth Minority Mentoring Picnic set for November Fifth Minority Mentoring Picnic set for November Mark your calendars for November 1 and join more than 1,500 lawyers, judges, minority law school students, guests, and family members for the Fifth Minority Mentoring Picnic in Hialeah. Held at the Amelia Earhart Park, 401 E. 65th Street, close to Miami International Airport, the picnic’s purpose is to match minority law students with mentors. Students wear “Need Mentor” stickers and lawyers sport “Need Mentee” stickers to help find each other, while rubbing elbows with Supreme Court justices, Bar Bar leaders, and other legal luminaries. The picnic begins at noon and lasts until 4 p.m. The tradition continues as students are expected to arrive from all Florida law schools and leave with one or two mentors they can call on for inspiration and guidance. Picnic organizer John Kozyak, a Miami lawyer, helps introduce students to mentors and follows up with students after the picnic is over. Come hungry, as the picnic features an international feast, including Jamaican jerk chicken, Cuban paella and arroz con pollo, Haitian curry goat, and plenty of barbecue, burgers, and hot dogs. “This is a real family event and children love the activities,” Kozyak said, where the fun includes rock-climbing, volleyball, and kayaking. A large number of voluntary bar associations are participating. The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, Association of Corporate Counsel, Greenberg Traurig, Bilzin Sumberg, Florida Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company, and Kozyak Tropin & Thorckmorton are among the platinium sponsors. For directions to Amelia Earhart Park, to RSVP, and to see photos from past picnics, go to http://www.kttlaw.com/picnic. If you have specific questions, e-mail Kozyak at [email protected] or call him at 305-377-0654. (Park admission is $5 per car and car-pooling is strongly encouraged.)last_img read more

Powered by Firework Reports in Italy suggest Serie A champions Juventus are pursuing SL Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix, and funds for this immensely expensive transfer are to be generated at the expense of Dybala. The Argentine is all set to be sold off in the summer in order to aid the signing of the highly prized midfielder.Advertisement With Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey already Turin-bound in the summer, Juve aim to bolster an already impressive midfield with the addition of the highly rated and high in demand SL Benfica midfield wonderkid Joao Felix this summer.The Portuguese midfielder has impressed this season and clubs including Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona, alongside the Serie A champions were interested in signing Felix.Advertisement However, Italian news agency Tuttosport report that the Bianconerri are taking advanced steps to lure the 19-year old midfield sensation to Italy, and his massive €100m price will be generated by selling Argentina international Paulo Dybala at the end of the season.Dybala, who has so far scored 10 times in 37 appearances, dropped down the pecking order under Massimiliano Allegri recently, and is said to be sold in the region of €100m, in order to fund the move.Advertisement Felix scored an impressive hat-trick in Benfica’s 4-2 win against Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday, taking his tally to 15 goals and 7 assists in 36 games overall.Read also:-Wizkid Felix Joao receives random nudes but ends up rejecting them!

More Adults Than Ever on Social Networks

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The share of adult internet users who are involved in social networking online has more than quadrupled in the past four years in the U.S. In 2005, only 8% of adults had a social network profile. As of December 2008, that number was 35%. What motivates those in older generations to go online? Is it the opportunity to professionally network with their colleagues? The answer may surprise you.More Adults Than EverA majority of teens, percentage wise, join social networks, but it’s the adults that still make up the bulk of these web sites. That’s because adults make up a larger proportion of the U.S. population than teens, reports Pew Internet & American Life Project. So the 65% of online teens actually represents fewer users than the 35% of adults who participate online. Of course, out of that 35%, the adults that tend to join social networks still skews younger: 75% of those 18-24 use these networks, but only 7% of the adults 65+ do. It’s Not About Professional Networking After AllYou may think that many adults have joined the online trend mainly to network professionally with others in their field. However, that turns out not to be true. Instead adults, like teens, are there to socialize with their friends and people they already know. Nearly nine in ten social network users (89%) say they use the networks to stay in touch with friends, and 57% say they use it to make plans with friends. Under half (49%) use the sites to make new friends. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Surprisingly, those on social networks for professional purposes are not as common as you may have thought. Only 6% of adults use LinkedIn, the online social network dedicated to professional networking, but 72% use other social networks (50% use MySpace, 22% use Facebook) for both professional and personal networking purposes. The most interesting finding is that less than a third of social network users are using them for professional purposes, regardless of which site they use. More Tidbits: DemographicsSome other findings confirm what we’ve heard before about social networks: MySpace users are more likely to be women, Hispanic, black, and have a high school education or some college experience. The median age is 27. Facebook users are more likely to be male and have a college degree. The median age there is 26. LinkedIn, however, tends to be comprised of more older, white men with a college degree and median age of 40. The prevalence of men on these networks could be explained by the fact that men are more likely than women to have two or more online profiles (54% vs. 47%).What It All MeansIt appears that the trend of using social networking sites for professional purposes is not quite as common as we may have thought. Although there are portions of the population both young and old that do so, it isn’t the main reason people join social networks. It’s more common for people to go online to use the networks as they were originally intended – to socialize. That’s not a bad thing, we suppose, but it will be interesting to see what this means for sites like LinkedIn, whose main purpose is to cater to the professional crowd.We’ve already seen LinkedIn attempt to expand their network in new ways not too long ago. Just this past year, we’ve watched as LinkedIn added LinkedIn applications, an effort to make their network more interesting and dynamic. They also added helpful features for business-minded folks like the events section, which debuted last November. But it was only a month ago that the company brought in a new CEO, or rather, an old one – the company founder Reid Hoffman. Perhaps that means LinkedIn is planning to shake up their site and make it more relevant and popular among online users than it is today.

QTF Appoints Shuker as Chairman

first_imgQueensland Touch Football (QTF) has appointed Mr Gavin Shuker as Chairman of the QTF Board following the recent resignation of Ian Haig from the role.Mr Shuker was identified as the logical candidate to continue the work undertaken by the Board over the past year under Haig’s leadership.Shuker has a significant history with the sport as an elite player and coach; captaining both the Queensland and Australian Men’s Open teams in the past as well as most recently leading the Australian Men’s 30’s team to victory at the FIT World Cup.“QTF is undergoing some change at the moment, as we have done for the last couple of years and the opportunity to be a part of the ongoing transformation is exciting. I am looking forward to the challenges that lie in front of us,” Shuker stated following his appointment.QTF CEO Jamie O’Connor said he was equally excited by the appointment and the prospect of working with the new Chairman and noted the different approach that Mr Shuker would bring to the role.“Gavin will bring a different skill set to the position to what the organisation has had previously. His background in the sport is practically incomparable but it is his unique view, his business sense and ability to develop relationships that are his greatest strengths I believe,” O’Connor said.Shuker will take the chair ahead of this weekend’s QTF Board meeting.For more information contact QTF CEO Jamie O’Connor on 0419 574 052.Related Filesqtf_appoints_shuker_as_chairman-pdfRelated LinksQTF Chairman Announcedlast_img read more
