West This Week’s Drought Summary A weak ridge in the upper atmosphere tried to assert itself over the western contiguous U. Most of the interior basin, 4 Corners States, and southern California received no precipitation. The Pacific lows and cold fronts were dried out as they crossed the Rockies, leaving the Great Plains and Upper Midwest with little to no precipitation. They picked up Gulf of Mexico moisture as they crossed the Mississippi River Valley, dropping 2 or more inches of rain in the wetter areas from southeastern Texas to Southern New England. In spite of these areas receiving precipitation, the week was wetter than normal only along the northern California to Washington coast, the northern parts of the Pacific Northwest, and parts of the Gulf Coast, East Coast, and Mid-Appalachia. The dryness this week was a continuation of severely dry conditions which have persisted for the last 3 to 4 months across much of the Southwest to southern Plains. Contraction of drought and abnormal dryness occurred in parts of the South to Mid-Atlantic where the heaviest rains fell, but drought expansion was the rule across the rest of the CONUS. Northeast Precipitation amounts ranged from a few tenths of an inch along the Great Lakes to over 2 inches in parts of coastal New England, but mostly it was a drier-than-normal week. Precipitation largely missed the Maryland corridor from Washington, D. Loch Raven and Liberty Reservoir levels were down significantly.
Each incident hurts all of us. These acts of violence are like red dots covering a map, much like an epidemic spreading out of control if not stopped. Categories of red dots that are the focus of Iowa State Green Dot are explained below. This includes partner violence, sexual assault, stalking, bullying, child abuse, and elder abuse. It includes the use of alcohol or drugs to commit any of these acts.
These acts are inclusive of acts committed by strangers, friends, acquaintances, intimates, or other persons.

Tons — Refers to an exaggerated quantity, as in tons of sunshine or tons of work. Dish — As in to dish out the latest rumor on someone. Pre-owned — What is so disgraceful about owning a used car now and then? We used to have hiring, training and orientation. Let that sink in — One could say shocking, profound, or important.
Animal Science Animal Science The Animal Science major is designed for students who have an interest in animal production, management, sales, research, and health care. The hands-on coursework focuses on domestic animals — beef and dairy cattle, cats, dogs, horses, sheep, swine, poultry, and the services related to these animals. ECC students will master the topics of animal nutrition, breeding and health. Instruction includes outings to livestock operations in the area, as well as partnerships with local producers and the Extension Service.
Animal Science majors are prepared for a wide range of careers in agriculture and veterinary medicine, livestock production, agribusiness and finance, livestock sales and promotion, biotechnology and international agriculture. This program includes a career seminar and a paid on-the-job training internship that has proven to be invaluable to our students for professional networking, building their resumes, and getting their foot in the door to make a great impression on a local employer.
Specific careers include animal care, livestock production, agribusiness and finance, animal transport, livestock sales, animal feeds and feeding, and animal pharmaceuticals. According to the U. Students who plan to transfer their credits are encouraged to visit with an admissions representative or academic advisor of the college or university to which they plan to transfer to ensure that the transfer of their ECC credits is seamless and complete.
Participants are dual-enrolled at ECC and the university with access to academic advising and student services at both institutions. The universities guarantee admission into the desired degree program, provided all requirements are met. What students appreciate about ECC is our smaller class sizes, which results in more one-on-one attention from the instructor and greater classroom success.
Iowa State sociologists find older adults turning to online options for love, marriage Posted Jan 27, AMES, Iowa — Some people who find themselves alone on Valentine’s Day may be tempted to look for love online. And new research by two Iowa State University sociologists has found that older adults who are turning to their computers to find love — largely because of the time constraints in their busy lives — are making their desired love connections. ISU Associate Professor of Sociology Alicia Cast and her graduate research assistant, Jamie McCartney, have been collecting data from approximately central Iowa newlywed couples over a three-year period.
Among the sample, 25 couples first met online — either through online dating, social networking sites, or some other online means. In preliminary analysis presented at the Midwest Sociological Society’s annual meeting, the researchers reported that online subjects didn’t differ significantly from offline couples in terms of self-esteem levels, attractiveness, intelligence and other personal characteristics.

The two explorers, along with their five crewmen, stepped ashore near where the Iowa river flowed into the Mississippi. It is believed that the voyage marked the first time that white people visited the region of Iowa. After surveying the surrounding area, the Frenchmen recorded in their journals that Iowa appeared lush, green, and fertile.
For the next years, thousands of white settlers would agree with these early visitors: Iowa was indeed lush and green; moreover, its soil was highly productive. In fact, much of the history of the Hawkeye State is inseparably intertwined with its agricultural productivity. Iowa stands today as one of the leading agricultural states in the nation, a fact foreshadowed by the observation of the early French explorers. The Indians Before , however, the region had long been home to many Native Americans.
The Potawatomi, Oto, and Missouri Indians had sold their land to the federal government by while the Sauk and Mesquaki remained in the Iowa region until The Santee Band of the Sioux was the last to negotiate a treaty with the federal government in The Sauk and Mesquaki constituted the largest and most powerful tribes in the Upper Mississippi Valley. They had earlier moved from the Michigan region into Wisconsin and by the s, they had relocated in western Illinois.
There they established their villages along the Rock and Mississippi Rivers. They lived in their main villages only for a few months each year.

Every year millions of people record stories of all varieties on audiovisual media, ranging from narratives of everyday life to historic events. These moments are chronicled and stored each day on multiple formats and media, whether they are digital or analogue. How do we ensure that this ever-growing corpus that is our cultural history today is preserved and exists in the future? And how do we guarantee that this rapidly accumulating, collective moving story of ours is not lost, as much of our history on these fragile media has been over the past years?
In addition to their daily efforts to provide access to historic collections housed in established archives, archivists actively rescue collections in danger of loss or destruction due to poor climates, less than ideal storage conditions, political unrest or the economic challenges that many countries are confronted with daily. Our stories are moving in many ways. First, they move through the very act of playing this unique material on the original equipment that transports the object as part of viewing or hearing it, whether it is motion picture film, a vinyl record, an audio cassette or a videotape.
Second, as physical objects, made of organic material, these items are constantly and naturally moving through an ongoing state of decay, are deteriorating, and moving towards inaccessibility as they travel through their own timeline. Third, in countries and institutions with resources available to digitize collections, the rate at which our stories can now quickly move around the globe, thanks to the newest digital communication technologies now allows us to share our stories faster and ever more widely to more locations around the world than ever before.
Lastly, of course, stories move us emotionally. We see this every year on Home Movie Day, an event that provides a moment for publics around the world to bring their visual cultural heritage to archives and libraries, to view, sometimes for the first time in decades. As they see lost family members, loved ones and ancestors long gone come to life on the screen, tears flow, emotions are high, and these moments of our captured history transport us to new heights as our histories unfold before our eyes.

Even a nose twitch and a mouth gag. Yet within the dozens of dusty boxes and musty bags filled with hundreds of veterinary artifacts that were contributed to the College of Veterinary Medicine’s new heritage room, there was nary a rumen magnet. It’s not surprising, really. There probably aren’t many rumen magnets around.
