Taking the Internship Certificate Program on the Road to Boston

Adrienne Mc Nally, Professor Michael Gregorek and I went to Boston during Spring Break to present at the national Cooperative Education and Internship Association conference.  I had the pleasure of first presenting with Michael on the successes we have had in collaborating on our two programs--the School of Management's Professional Enrichment Program and the Career Services Internship Certificate Program.   In true Michael style he was the star of the show.  40 audience participants laughed in between nodding their heads in disbelief of his successful outreach to students and professionals alike.  They were captivated by not only Michael's energetic delivery, (at one point he was on both… More

Crap Detection 101

Was President Barack Obama born in the United States?  Does the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommend a vegan diet for infants?  As the inventor of the WWW, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, recently commented, “the Internet does not have an IQ.”  Consider for a moment that close to 90% of university students begin their research using a search engine, and that less than 1% of all searchers travel past the first page of results.  The implications are enormous… No less problematic is that more and more of today’s information is delivered un-authorized.  In the past, scholars, editors, publishers and librarians… More

Junk Food Legislation

A big debate in both the marketing and nutrition worlds is the need for more legislation limiting access to food that is less than healthful. In light of increasing obesity, especially among children and adolescents many schools are reconsidering what is offered in the cafeterias and vending machines. According to the Boston Globe , the Massachusetts state senate, in reaction to a recent report that one on three children in the state is overweight, passed a law  last Thursday banning junk food and soda from being available in schools. Instead low-fat dairy products, fruits, vegetables, more whole products will be sold or served. Will this help… More

Motion Graphics get their due

The title sequence in film has been an art form ever since Saul Bass made a sequence for Carmen Jones in 1955 that did not merely attempt to convey the names of the cast and crew for the audience.  That was over 50 years ago, and now, finally, the title sequence as art form is being recognized for the important role it plays in setting the stage for a film.  This year's South by Southwest film festival is having its own little version of the Oscars for title sequences in both film and television.   Other film festivals are following suit,… More
