Age of e-mail; living without

It’s so easy to take e-mail for granted. In a nano second, text, photos and gigabytes of information can be sent to anyone with an e-mail account all over the world. However, what happens when your e-mail goes down?
On Nov. 1, USU-College of Eastern Utah IT Department lost all faculty and staff e-mail for the better part of three days. It was frightening to some but proved to be more of an annoyance to others.

Stench in SAC solved

After three weeks of headaches, sinus problems and nose bleeds, residents in the SAC may feel better without their daily dose of pain killers and tissue paper. Utah State University’s Rachel Curry, safety/industrial hygienist, was on campus Thursday, Nov. 11 to test the air quality in the building and provide a plan to aerate the building of the sewer gasses that have plagued its residences.

S.E.C.

While the weather is cooling down sports are heating up. College and professional football are separating the contenders from the pretenders, and the teams on the bubble for post season are fighting to clinch the final spots. College basketball has just started and Duke is ranked as the no. 1 team in the preseason power rankings. There have been quite a few stories that could have made the Sports Editor’s Choice this week, but unfortunately there is only space for five.
5- 400 and counting

One loss, or no losses?

The curse of the no. 1 has been the story of the year in college football, although Auburn and Oregon have broken the curse for now fans are still weary it’ll come back. Experts like Kirk Herbstreit are saying there is no dominant team this year, but what do experts know?

Next on the tee: Coaches and their lessons

Anyone of us that has ever participated in an organized sports team has had the experience of hopefully having a coach that has made a difference in our lives. If you aren’t much of a “sports nut,” then it may not have been a coach in the sense of being on a team, but perhaps a teacher or mentor. According to the dictionary a coach, is defined as, “a person that trains an athlete or a team of athletes.”

Men’s team starts out hot, runs over competition

Starting the season with the highest preseason ranking in the school’s history can be good motivation for a team, and put a target on your back for other teams to take a whack at.
“With this being my first year here, I didn’t know much about the school’s basketball history, so when my teammates told me that we were ranked eighth and that’s the highest the school has ever been, I was really excited and grateful to be a part of the CEU men’s basketball history,” says Trevor Bamgartner a freshmen guard and key player to this year’s team.

What we are thankful for: a few words from The Eagle staff

Capt. Mae – I am thankful for life.  I can’t express how important it is to me.  I’m thankful for the many friends, past and present, who have helped me with becoming who I am today.  I’m thankful for my family.  They love me and I love them beyond belief.  I’m thankful for nature and the peace which it brings me. I am so thankful for the good God who gave me everything I have. And I am so thankful for Church Group; I love you all.

‘Tis the season to be laughing

Historic Helper City, Utah November 16, 2010—What do two disc jockeys at radio station OKKK, the members of the Smut Snatchers of the New Order, two very different twins, a child who is constantly followed by a pack of dogs, a Humane Society employee wrecked by the plight of ducks, a cranky old lady who poisons poodles, a UFO- spotting nut job, a city council candidate who wants to tax prisoners and a used weapons dealer have in common? They all live in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas!

Actors on the Spot continue shows

Laughter: the milk to our Cocoa Puffs. On campus the “Actors on the Spot” improvisational comedy team has been developing for several years.
We are liken unto the famous television show, “Whose Line is it Anyway,” though we do not have the witty Wayne Brady or the gelatinous Drew Carey.
Look past the arrogance in this comment, but “Actor’s on the Spot” is the funniest, most fun, free activity on campus.
In the past, there was a huge influx of student attendance, but this year has been slow to say the least. As the team captain, it is disheartening but understandable.
