HL 524 – Ergogenic Issues students are seeking volunteers from the ESU community (administration, faculty, and staff) for an upcoming practical experience project – Dietary and Physical Activity Analysis.

The purpose of this project is to provide our Health Promotion students with experience in analyzing a client's diet and physical activity. The primary goal for our students will be to provide you with an accurate analysis of your current eating habits as well as some suggestions for making improvements to your diet, if any are warranted.  Additionally, your physical activity will be analyzed, simply in terms of caloric expenditure. This will be useful in determining your daily caloric needs which are important if you are wishing to lose or gain weight, or even just remain at your current weight.  

In order to participate in this project, you will simply be required to commit to keeping a Food Diary for seven consecutive days, as well as a simple record of physical activity.

If you are interested, please contact Dr. Paul Luebbers at pluebber@emporia.edu.

HL 524 – Ergogenic Issues students are seeking volunteers from the ESU community (administration, faculty, and staff) for an upcoming practical experience project – Dietary and Physical Activity Analysis.

The purpose of this project is to provide our Health Promotion students with experience in analyzing a clients' diet and physical activity. The primary goal for our students will be to provide you with an accurate analysis of your current eating habits as well as suggestions for making improvements to your diet, if any are warranted.  Additionally, your physical activity will be analyzed, simply in terms of caloric expenditure. This will be useful in determining your daily caloric needs which are important if you are wishing to lose or gain weight, or even just remain at your current weight.  

In order to participate in this project, you will simply be required to commit to keeping a Food Diary for seven consecutive days, as well as a simple record of physical activity.

If you are interested, please contact Dr. Paul Luebbers at pluebber@emporia.edu.

In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff from sun-up to sun-down on October 2 through October 6 following the terrorist shooting at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas that killed at least 50 people and injured hundreds more.

"The purposeful act of terror inflicted upon concert-goers in Las Vegas is an unspeakable demonstration of evil.

The Intensive English Program (IEP) is still seeking at least 10 volunteers to be conversation partners with international students. ​

Conversation partners is a program that pairs international students with fluent English speakers to give the international student a chance to practice conversational English. The program also builds connections within the ESU community.

Conversation partners meet for at least one hour each week for casual conversation. The two partners choose the time and place for their meetings, which means that it's easy to fit the conversation around your normal schedule. Conversation partners are not required to tutor. You just have to have an informal conversation for one hour each week.

Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to be conversation partners. All fluent English speakers are welcome, which means English does not have to be your first language. As long as you are fluent in English, you can be a conversation partner.

To sign up to be a conversation partner or for more information, email iep@emporia.edu or stop by the IEP office in Roosevelt Hall room 113.

The Wichita local section of the American Chemical Society will be meeting at Emporia State University on Friday, October 6, in the PKP room in Memorial Union.  A pasta dinner ($7 students, $11 others) will be served at 6:30 PM, followed by a free presentation by Professor Emeritus Paul Philp from the University of Oklahoma at 7:30 PM.  Dr. Philp will present "The Fracking Revolution in the Oil and Gas Business and its Implications from both the Environmental and Energy Perspectives."  Guests may attend the talk without joining us for dinner, but those who intend to come for the meal should RSVP to Diane Nutbrown at dnutbrow@emporia.edu before 5 PM on Friday, September 29.

The abstract is as follows:

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking as it is more commonly known, has become a despised term in many quarters, but most people do not look at both sides of the process but simply see it as a blessing or a curse. In my opinion it can be both but there is a need for better communication on both sides and not the general mass hysteria that accompanies such discussion. In this presentation I will try and outline some of the issues on both sides of the argument. These are simply my opinions backed up as far as possible by published data.

               First a little history, not many people realize that the first patent for fracking was issued back in the 1850s during the Civil War and applied to water wells to improve supply of fresh water for the soldiers. There were various attempts at fracking oil and gas wells during the 1920s and 30s with limited success. After that in the 50s and 60s many vertical wells were successful fracked with little attention from people outside the industry. However it was in the 1990s and the first decade of this century that fracking started to gain attention. The first big shale gas development was in the Fort Worth Basin, TX. Mitchell Energy desperate to find gas in the basin finally successfully developed the technique of horizontal drilling around 2000 after many failed and expensive attempts. The real breakthrough coming with the combination of horizontal drilling and fracking leading to significant gas production from the Barnett and later many oil source rocks long thought to be past prime.

               So what are the major environmental problems? The first is the water issue-fracking a well requires large amounts of fresh water, a precious resource in states such as Texas, Oklahoma and California where there are steady droughts and water could be used for other purposes. This issue is being addressed and alternative techniques are being developed. Second the concern that gas will get in water wells. This has been happening in oil and gas producing regions for years and has not been shown to cause health issues. Numerous papers were published a few years back suggesting fracking was responsible for this and these papers were later found to be false and some were retracted. Third chemicals from the fracking operation will get into the aquifers and water wells. This is indeed a concern but many studies have shown a limited number of occurrences and few health related incidents. Fourth-damage to the environment in rural areas. That is a problem, huge storage pits have to be dug for water storage and new roads for rig transport. Fifth earthquakes are another big problem but not directly related to the fracking. The earthquakes are caused by disposal wells where salty formation water is reinjected into very deep formations, subsequently causing the earthquakes.

               Finally I think one has to ask the question why would the oil companies want to intentionally fracture the ground water aquifers? By doing so they would only produce water and that is not their goal.

​ESU Theatre's production of "Family Furniture" by A.R. Gurney plays tonight through Saturday at 7:30 PM!

"Family Furniture" was inspired by Gurney's own life and the culture of the 1950's when he was a young adult. The show focuses on a young adult brother and sister pair who must come to terms with traumatic events going on in their family. The potential of a mother's infidelity and a father's apathy threatens to divide a seemingly normal, nuclear family in a society where keeping up with appearances can be more important than honesty.

"Family Furniture" will play in the Ronald Q. Frederickson Theatre at 7:30 PM September 26 – 30 with an additional matinee performance at 2:00 PM on September 30. Emporia State University. Tickets can be reserved at tickets.emporia.edu, at the ESU Memorial Union Ticket Office or by calling 620-341-6378.

​The 10th annual Depression Screening will be held next week (Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday) in the Memorial Union Ballroom from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm!

Why do we have a Depression Screening:

Depression is a major factor in academic problems.  It is listed as the 4th leading reason (from an ESU survey) students don't do well academically (after stress, anxiety, and sleep problems by). We want to reach out to as many students as possible so we can connect with those who are experiencing depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues that are interfering with daily functioning.

Faculty:

Many faculty offer extra credit to students who participate. Offering extra credit in classes has been proven to be the best incentive to get students to participate in the Depression Screening. I believe we are lucky on this campus to have so many faculty members partner with Counseling Services in this endeavor. Please ask your teachers if they are offering extra credit in your classes.

Logistics:

When: October 2, 3, and 4th, between 10:00-2:00 pm

Where: Memorial Union 2nd floor (Ballroom Monday and Tuesday, lobby on Wednesday)

What happens: Students complete a questionnaire and meet individually with a counselor or counseling intern for 5-10 minutes. An appointment for later counseling can be made if needed. Students are then given an extra credit ticket, signed by the counselor, to give to those faculty who are partnering with Counseling Services.

Side Note:

Emporia State University has one of the best attended Depression Screenings nationally. This is in part to the commitment ESU has to our students' success. I want to thank all who have joined in this effort in the past and encourage more to join in. If you are planning on giving extra credit in your classes, it would help to know how many students you are offering it to. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me at 341-5222 or emailing me.

A simple thing as exercising for 20 minutes a day can improve your overall quality of life. With physical wellness, it's not just as simple as exercising! In order to have great physical wellness, you need to have exercise, adequate hydration, proper nutrition and a good night of sleep! A good tip: work on trying to accomplish one of these tasks and build on one each week. Start with one positive habit (like drinking more water than usual) and that can snowball into more positive habits!

You’re invited to come see Andi Zeisler from Bitch Media speak to students about feminism!

 From Riot Grrrl to Marketplace Feminism: Selling—and Selling Out—Feminism

In the space of a few short years, feminism—an ideology debated, derided, and declared dead by mainstream media for decades—has suddenly become a hot media commodity. Celebrities love it; advertisers want it; fashion designers praise it. But what is this new feminism, and is it really about equality—or just commerce? This talk discusses the slow shift from the insurgent, collective power of Riot Grrrl to the new market-friendly feminism, and questions what we can learn from both.

AND

Let’s Talk Andi Zeisler

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 | 5:00pm – 7:00pm | Diversity Lounge, MU

​"Family Furniture" was inspired by author A.R. Gurney's own life and the culture of the 1950's when he was a young adult. The show focuses on a young adult brother and sister pair who must come to terms with traumatic events going on in their family. The potential of a mother's infidelity and a father's apathy threatens to divide a seemingly normal, nuclear family in a society where keeping up with appearances can be more important than honesty.

"Family Furniture" will play in the Ronald Q. Frederickson Theatre at 7:30 PM September 26 – 30 with an additional matinee performance at 2:00 PM on September 30. Tickets can be reserved at the ESU Memorial Union Ticket Office, at tickets.emporia.edu or by calling 620-341-6378.

    ​The Intensive English Program is still seeking around 15 to 20 individuals willing to be a conversation partner with an international student.

    Conversation partners meet for at least one hour each week for casual conversation. The two partners choose the time and place for their meetings, which means that it's easy to fit the conversation around your normal schedule. Conversation partners are not required to tutor. You just have to have an informal conversation for one hour each week.

    Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to be conversation partners. All fluent English speakers are welcome, which means English does not have to be your first language. As long as you are fluent in English, you can be a conversation partner.

    Topeka – In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Governor Sam Brownback today ordered flags to be flown at half-staff from sun-up to sundown on Monday, September 11, 2017 in observance of Patriot Day.

    By a joint resolution approved Dec. 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), Congress designated September 11 of each year as Patriot Day, and by Public Law 111-13, approved April 21, 2009, requested the observance of Sept. 11 as an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.

    "September 11, 2001 changed the course of our nation's history, and it's important we set aside time to remember and honor the thousands people who died and continue to preserve their memory," Governor Brownback said. "Our hearts remain with the heroes who lost their lives that day, and with the families and friends that still grieve them."

    Patriot Day is an annual observance to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.  

    "We remember all of those who lost their lives on this tragic day 16 years ago," said Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. "We will never forget."

    President Donald J. Trump proclaimed Friday, September 8, 2017, through Sunday, September 10, 2017, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance.

    Spanish Club is hosting a book club that is open to all. We will be reading, "El Odio Que Das" or "The Hate You Give" by Angie Thomas. If you are interested, please attend our first Spanish Club meeting, which will be this Sunday, September 10th at 7 p.m. is 825 State St.

    Food from Casa Ramos will be provided.

    You can buy your own copy of the book on Amazon for $20 or we can provide electronic versions. 

    If you cannot make the meeting, email sspoon2@g.emporia.edu to express your interested in joining. 

    The description of the book is below: 

    Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

El imbalance entre estos dos mundos es destrozado cuando Starr es testiga del balasero de su viejo amigo Khalil por un policía. Khalil estaba sin armas. Pronto después, su muerte llegó a noticias nacionales. Unos lo llaman matón, tal vez un narco o cholo. Protestadores defienden el nombre de Khalil en las calles. Unos policías y el narco local tratan de intimidar a Starr y su familia. Lo que todos quieren saber es: ¿qué fue lo que realmente pasó esa noche?

    ​Do you have an hour each week to spend talking to an international student? The Intensive English Program (IEP) is seeking conversation partners to meet with international students that would like to improve their English conversation skills.

    Conversation partners is a program that pairs international students with fluent English speakers to give the international student a chance to practice conversational English. The program also builds connections within the ESU community.

    Conversation partners meet for at least one hour each week for casual conversation. The two partners choose the time and place for their meetings, which means that it's easy to fit the conversation around your normal schedule. Conversation partners are not required to tutor. You just have to have an informal conversation for one hour each week.

    Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to be conversation partners. All fluent English speakers are welcome, which means English does not have to be your first language. As long as you are fluent in English, you can be a conversation partner. ​

    To sign up to be a conversation partner or for more information, email iep@emporia.edu or stop by the IEP office in Roosevelt Hall room 113.

    ​Calling all faculty who want to improve their course design skills and/or Canvas knowledge. The Online Readiness Course (ORC) begins September 11th and ends on October 13th. This course rigorously explores all the Canvas tools necessary to take a course you have already taught in a face-to-face environment and redesign it with the online learner in mind.

    There are 3 main components to the course:

    • Best practices in online pedagogy and androgogy
    • Advanced Canvas tools and Analytics
    • Course design

    In addition, you will get to experience being a fully-online learner and educator using Canvas.

    As a student in ORC, you will progress through the following Modules:

    1. Module 1: Orientation. Checking your tech prerequisites; getting to know each other; introducing the Principles of Online Pedagogy (POP) framework.
    2. Module 2: Designing Your Environment. Your classroom is a place, not a filing cabinet! Careful user experience (UX) design helps your online space actively encourage student engagement.
    3. Module 3: Designing Your Content. From pedagogical considerations like active learning and universal design, to tech considerations like choosing appropriate media types, this module focuses on creating course content that fits the online environments you're using.
    4. Module 4: Interacting. Instructor presence and community-building are important, and work differently online than in a physical space. Developing your presence and baseline habits is crucial to success.
    5. Module 5: Revising, Iterating, and Troubleshooting. Responding quickly and effectively to the unexpected is a critical skill for any online instructor.

    There are no texts to purchase. All readings, media and all other required materials will be provided within the course!

    Each Assignment contains the materials required for you to complete it successfully. In addition, every Module contains further readings to deepen your understanding of the principles and practices you've encountered. At the end of the course, you will be awarded a Digital Badge through our Hornet Badges portal. 

    Please email Dr. Anna Catterson acatters@emporia.edu if interested in enrolling!​

    I am looking for veterans (students, faculty, and/or staff) of all ages and military experiences to interview for a research project I am currently working on.  The outcome of the project will be a published collection of oral histories from veterans that allow for documentation of their historical accounts and tell their stories of their time in the U.S. military.  My goal is to allow the veterans’ voices to be heard and preserved in history for future generations. 

    It would be an honor to interview you for this project. Would you be willing to share your story with me?
    If so, please email me at: asimon3@g.emporia.edu

    ​Do you have an hour each week to spend talking to an international student? The Intensive English Program (IEP) is seeking conversation partners to meet with international students that would like to improve their English conversation skills.

    Conversation partners is a program that pairs international students with fluent English speakers to give the international student a chance to practice conversational English. The program also builds connections within the ESU community.

    Conversation partners meet for at least one hour each week for casual conversation. The two partners choose the time and place for their meetings, which means that it's easy to fit the conversation around your normal schedule. Conversation partners are not required to tutor. You just have to have an informal conversation for one hour each week.

    Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to be conversation partners. All fluent English speakers are welcome, which means English does not have to be your first language. As long as you are fluent in English, you can be a conversation partner. ​

    To sign up to be a conversation partner or for more information, email iep@emporia.edu or stop by the IEP office in Roosevelt Hall Room 113.

    Be sure to pick up your FREE copy of We ARE Americans: Undocumented Students Pursuing the American Dream by William Perez! 

    "Through the inspiring stories of 16 students―from seniors in high school to graduate students―William Perez gives voice to the estimated 2.4 million undocumented students in the United States, and draws attention to their plight. These stories reveal how―despite financial hardship, the unpredictability of living with the daily threat of deportation, restrictions of all sorts, and often in the face of discrimination by their teachers―so many are not just persisting in the American educational system, but achieving academically, and moreover often participating in service to their local communities."

    TOPEKA – In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Governor Sam Brownback ordered flags in Kansas to be flown at half-staff from sun-up until sun-down on Tuesday, August 29th, in honor of former Lt. Governor Thomas Docking, who passed away last Thursday.

    Docking, 63, served as Lieutenant Governor from 1983 to 1987 with Governor John Carlin. He was the son of former Kansas Governor Robert Docking, who served from 1967 to 1975, and the grandson of former Kansas Governor George Docking, who served from 1957 to 1961.

     "On behalf of myself and Mary, together with Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer and his wife Ruth, we extend our deepest condolences to the Docking family," Governor Brownback said. "Thomas Docking served the citizens of our state with great dedication, just as his father and grandfather before him."

    Former Lt. Gov. Docking is survived by his wife Jill, his son Brian, daughter in law Emily, and their children Charlotte and Jane, as well as his daughter Margery and brother Bill.

    "We hope they take solace in the fact that he lived his life as a fine example of a great Kansan," said Lt. Gov. Colyer.

    A service in honor of Docking's life will take place at 10 a.m. Tuesday, August 29, at Botanica Gardens, 701 Amidon St., Wichita, Kan.​

    ​Dear Emporia State Community:

    At the risk of sounding too effusive, I need to start this note with an awesome "Wow!" Emporia State University continues to amaze me just as it did when I first toured the campus as a Freshman.

    This university that is recognized for its quality of programs, our amazing faculty and our impactful service is truly an impressive place. This week has been one of those that I went home, totally exhausted and totally inspired by Emporia State University.

    From move-in day, orientation events, the eclipse party, and the start of our classes, I want to thank all the students, faculty, and staff who went beyond the call of duty to start this year off on a great note. I am blown away how here at ESU, students are not only admitted, but students are welcome. 

    To our faculty, our staff, our students, and our community members: This morning I felt compelled to send you this very simple message to let you know how proud I am of this university and how much I admire each and every one of you. 

    As we gear up for the rest of our year, please receive my sincere note of appreciation.

    Yours In Service,

    Megan McReynolds

    Topeka – In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff from sun-up to sun-down on Tuesday, August 22 to honor former Kansas Senate President Paul "Bud" Burke who passed away on Thursday, August 16.

    Burke, 83, served as Kansas Senate President from 1989 to 1997. The Republican from Leawood previously served as Senate Majority Leader from 1985 to 1988, and was a member of the Kansas House from 1973 to 1974.

    "Bud Burke was committed to public service and loved this state deeply," said Governor Brownback. "He had a great sense of humor and truly cared about the future of Kansas. Mary and I send our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends."

    "I knew Bud and always appreciated his long-standing commitment to serving the people of the state he loved," said Lt. Governor Dr. Jeff Colyer. "He will be remembered fondly, and we send our condolences to his family."

    Services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Lawrence. A celebration of Burke's life will be held at the KU Endowment Association in Lawrence following the funeral services.

    ​Calling all faculty who want to improve their course design skills and/or Canvas knowledge. The Online Readiness Course (ORC) begins September 11th and ends on October 13th. This course rigorously explores all the Canvas tools necessary to take a course you have already taught in a face-to-face environment and redesign it with the online learner in mind.

    There are 3 main components to the course:

    • Best practices in online pedagogy and androgogy
    • Advanced Canvas tools and Analytics
    • Course design

    In addition, you will get to experience being a fully-online learner and educator using Canvas.

    As a student in ORC, you will progress through the following Modules:

    1. Module 1: Orientation. Checking your tech prerequisites; getting to know each other; introducing the Principles of Online Pedagogy (POP) framework.
    2. Module 2: Designing Your Environment. Your classroom is a place, not a filing cabinet! Careful user experience (UX) design helps your online space actively encourage student engagement.
    3. Module 3: Designing Your Content. From pedagogical considerations like active learning and universal design, to tech considerations like choosing appropriate media types, this module focuses on creating course content that fits the online environments you're using.
    4. Module 4: Interacting. Instructor presence and community-building are important, and work differently online than in a physical space. Developing your presence and baseline habits is crucial to success.
    5. Module 5: Revising, Iterating, and Troubleshooting. Responding quickly and effectively to the unexpected is a critical skill for any online instructor.

    There are no texts to purchase. All readings, media and all other required materials will be provided within the course!

    Each Assignment contains the materials required for you to complete it successfully. In addition, every Module contains further readings to deepen your understanding of the principles and practices you've encountered. At the end of the course, you will be awarded a Digital Badge through our Hornet Badges portal. 

    Please email Dr. Anna Catterson acatters@emporia.edu if interested in enrolling!​
