A memorial honoring faculty and staff who have passed away has been erected as part of the renovations to Jeannette Stromberg Hall, said Director of Marketing and Communications Brad Moore.
It was created to replace a large pyramid-shaped memorial that had not stood up well against the weather. The monument is located on Main campus just north of the Student Resource Center, near the L-Building, he said.
“Leonardo,” CNM’s annual literary and arts magazine, is accepting submissions from students through February, 2013, said “Leonardo” Faculty Adviser and full-time CHSS Instructor Patrick Houlihan.
The deadline for submissions is Feb. 2, 2013 and any CNM student can submit art, writing or photography for possible publication in the magazine, he said.
“We encourage anyone who is writing poems, short stories or flash fiction — whatever you’re writing, you can submit it. I’d love to see more artwork. I go by the art studios and the students do some phenomenal work, from sketching to painting to all kinds of forms and formats,” he said.
Liberal Arts Major Makayla Armijo said will be submitting paintings, poems and drawings to “Leonardo”.
There are many chartered organizations within CNM that are created and ran by students to create opportunities for their peers, but the problem lies in raising awareness about the groups and motivating people to get involved.
These students are willing to help each other gain experience in fields they may be pursuing as a career or even as a lifetime hobby.
Leonardo is an annual magazine that the Chronicle writes about during every publication season, and in this week’s issue Leonardo’s adviser, Full-time CHSS instructor Patrick Houlihan, is calling for more student involvement to continue a tradition that has been occurring for over a decade.
They have a board consisting entirely of student editors and designers who dedicate their free time to putting together a unique compilation that helps express the artistic styles of other student photographer, writers, and other artists of various types of mediums.
The past ten years have seen phenomenal changes in prenatal care and neonatal intensive care capabilities. These changes have saved lives that, in the past, would never have come to fruition. This means we have also seen a multitude of miracle baby stories from around the world.
There are families that are enjoying children’s birthdays would not have been possible 15 or 20 years ago. While these stories are inspiring and heartwarming they leave out the rest of the story. Just because we can save a child, does that mean we should?
This question has been the subject many of debates and with good reason. We perceive our children as being our future. Most parents would sacrifice themselves rather than see their children suffer.
Medical professionals are trained to save and protect lives at all cost. The idea of allowing anyone to die has been viewed as aberrant. Allowing an infant to die is considered absolutely unethical.
Stuntman and first-time director Dan Bradley’s remake of the 1984 film “Red Dawn” sets out to be a mindless action film and it accomplishes that and nothing more.
The thinly plotted war movie is filled with well-paced action scenes and just a couple over-the-top moments. The special effects are used liberally but are not very well done. The North Korean paratroopers who descended into the town looked like a beginner job at best.
Those looking for a thought-provoking or light-hearted film should skip this one. Moviegoers excited by explosions, chaos, realistic war scenes and films that do not tie up loose ends will enjoy “Red Dawn.”
Chris Hemsworth (“Avengers” and “Cabin in the Woods”) and Josh Peck (“Drake and Josh”) play brothers Jed and Matt, who gather a group of teens to defend their town from the invading North Korean army, while struggling to form a brotherly bond that was broken when Jed joined the Marines in the wake of their mother’s death.
