Whether a person lives the healthiest lifestyle or not they will need to visit a doctor’s office eventually.

USUE can start training individuals to join an ever-growing job market.

Sports performance is mandatory to athletic enhancement and professional enrichment; it’s the Cheech to Chong. If you didn’t understood that analogy, I just assigned you with your first homework assignment. However, training can’t be something you dabble in if you plan on dominating the collegiate ranks, getting drafted to the professional ranks and actually being a force.

Nothing beats the feeling of playing a game on your home court, having your warm-up playlist blasting through the gym speakers, hearing the crowd cheering for your team and killing a team and sending them back home with a loss on their record. This is exactly the kind of feeling the USU Eastern women’s volleyball team experienced last weekend.

It is pretty rare that I end up with a sweet tooth, so you get to benefit from it. Today’s recipe is cherry bars. This is a great recipe to use for a date or party. It is easy to make but looks super fancy if trying to impress someone with your culinary skills. There is really little to talk about health wise and cost wise this time since, we are dealing with a dessert after all. All I can think of is that for a gluten free option you can use sweet potato flour in place of the standard flour and vegetable shortening instead of butter for a lower cholesterol option.

For the first 200,000 years, our specie, Homo Sapien, had eek’d out a meager existence, surviving on a system of ever-evolving farming practices and techniques. Historians recorded clearly the years that crops resulted in feast as well as in famine, but due to our ingenuity, the years of famine were soon to become something only found in our history, maybe.

The conflict in the Middle East has been raging for nearly two decades. Though the actual fighting has been dialed back a great deal, there are still casualties unaccounted for, the coalition interpreter. These individuals have an essential skill that the U.S. could not continue its operations without. The ability to translate from the dialects in the theaters of operation to English so that service members can properly do their duties is invaluable.

What happens when the choices we make are taken away from us? When we no longer have a say on what we are allowed to do. Just imagine what our life would be like in a dictatorship where we no longer had choices, and the few we did no longer mattered. I know what you are thinking, “this is the United States of America,” and “there is no way this can happen here.” You don’t see this is happening now. Last week, Utah’s Gov. Gary Herbert attempted to do just this. He decided to defund the Planned Parenthood program.

When things go wrong, we work to fix them. One way or another, we at least try. The Umpqua Community College shooting shocked the nation, yet this is almost routine. The United States has had 15-mass shootings since Barack Obama took office, according to Time magazine. Countless lives lost, and what have we done, nothing. Every time this happens we cry, we talk about change and we are shocked. Many Americans have lost hope of change. Many Americans lost their lives for nothing. Many Americans look for a solution that has not worked.
