The Untitled Sibling Project

Do you guys remember my first blog post that came from an inspirational weekend with my college friends to celebrate a wedding? Well, the gang reunited again last weekend and I walked away with a new swimsuit, a concrete coaster, a little sleep deprivation, and another blog post. Unfortunately, what it didn’t leave me with […]

James O'Brien's Literature Archive

I’ve been meaning to write another blog entry for some time now. A fair bit’s happened since the last one. For example, I finally got a job after half a year of unemployment. It’s at a retailer that shall remain nameless, but I get a steady 30+ hours a week, a consistent work schedule, two […]

AU first year experience

This was the first assignment for this project; my name is on the top, “Abigail”. I thought this task was very creative and I enjoyed the fact that something that looked so abstract had meaning. This was my wingspan. I enjoyed this assignment because I like how the photograph turned out. At this point in […]

HST 241: Narrating the Past with Digital History

With the growing interest in digitizing as many pieces of history as we can, many new problems and perils come about. With the ability to save just about everything that has been created, one of the main questions that Rosenzweig brings up is what is worth saving. When one has the ability to preserve everything, […]

Fort Bragg Advocate-News
Three teams from Fort Bragg demonstrated their creative skills at the Odyssey of the Mind Regional Tournament in Santa Rosa Feb. 23. While all three teams made us proud, the Division 3 team (high school-aged) went on to the State Finals, also held in Santa Rosa this year on March 30. They finished in a respectable fifth place at State. Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving competition in which students are given a choice of five long-term problems to work on, while also practicing for a “spontaneous problem,” without knowing the details until competition day. ContributedOdyssey of the Mind team members Frej Barty, Abilene Kamstra, Holiday Barrett and Litzy Garcia. The Division 1 team and Division 3 teams chose a problem entitled “Leonardo’s Workshop”. In eight minutes, they had to show the judges three recreations of Leonardo’s Da Vinci’s work, plus an original invention, using a skit taking place in Leonardo’s workshop. One of the painting recreations had to be done without using paint! Well, how about shaving cream? That’s what the Division 1 team did. The Division 2 team chose a problem called “Opposites Distract”. Their challenge was to set up arguments by creating two groups, only to find out that they have common ground. The team chose an ocean theme, with crabs and snails arguing, and made elaborate props for special effects. There is no need to eat each other if you can make vegetarian sushi! ContributedOdyseey of the Mind team members Mian Musib Ahmad, Ash Hebden, Pirate O’Neal, Amalia Sanchez-Llanez and Ryan Welter. Participating members in Division 3 were Molly Windsor-Marshall, Sebastian Garcia, Holiday Barrett, and Abilene Kamstra. Division 2 was Frej Barty, Litzy Garcia, Abilene Kamstra, and Holiday Barrett. Division 1 was Ryan Welter, Ella Sweigart, Pirate O’Neal, Ash Hebden, Analia Sanchez-Llanez and Mian Musib Ahmad. The teams were coached by Lorrie Lagasse, Maiah Austin, Taimi Barty and Arwen Hebden. We would like to thank the judges from Fort Bragg that volunteered their time at the competition. Anyone wishing to participate in Odyssey of the Mind next year can contact Maiah Austin at Dana Gray Elementary School in the fall.

I am pleased that the windscreen wipers have been legitimized. Now so many Jamaicans will want to join the cadre of strongmen who provide well needed, if not always welcome services to dirty car-owners . Work is work. The international Labour Organization says so.  I am not questioning the worth, input or output of the members […]
