Intramurals

There is nothing more exciting in my line of work than intramurals.  Yes, we complete against some of the best DII schools in our region on the intercollegiate level, however: here's the deal.  With an intercollegiate contest you either go there or they come to you; you play the game and then you go home or they go home.  Yes there is excitement and build up because you want to do well and represent your institution but at the end of day you might not ever see your opponent again. However, when you play in intramural action it stays with… More

Haste Makes Waste

Got home to review my first ever blog and low and behold....it was full of mistakes.  There lies the lesson, be efficient with time but mind your time so it is productive.  I rushed to get it out and I made a lousy first impression.  I will try my best to make it up to you.  By the way, who came up with the term "blog".  It sounds like a vegetable you hated that your mom made you eat at dinner time, UGH! Today the Bear family mourns the loss of the mother of our Assistant Athletic Director and volleyball coach Gail Wasmus.  Folks… 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

To answer our question, were you to look closely when the character Joe Pitt enters the "Mormon… 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
