Pearl Harbor Remembered 80 years later

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Tue, 12/07/2021 - 13:20

When hundreds of Japanese planes bombed American service members and civilians on U.S. soil on Dec. 7, 1941 – killing more than 2,400 – America was an “isolated, quiet, withdrawn” nation said Craig Nelson, author of the 2016 book “Pearl Harbor: From Infamy to Greatness.”

The events of that day, dubbed “a date which will live in infamy” by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt, launched America’s involvement in World War II, beginning decades of growing global U.S. influence.

FUN WITH BONES

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Fri, 12/03/2021 - 11:11

Anatomy and Physiology students had the opportunity this week to dissect bones. Who knew you could dissect a bone, isn't it just bone? As these students found out there is more to the bone than just bone.

Did you know that joints, such as the ball that fits into the hip joint are smooth and look like marble?

Did you know that the knee cap slides along something that looks like a track?

Students were able to see these characteristics of bone as well as the meniscus, the ACL, muscle, and fat. Students also sawed the bone in half to see bone marrow.
