Why Teachers Quit Their Jobs

I became a high school English teacher for two reasons: I liked a college major where homework involved reading a book in bed and I had seen Dead Poet’s Society 184 too many times. This seems to be the story of most high school English teachers.

Pima Animal Care Center Looking for “Unicorn” Adopters and Fosters

Pima Animal Care Center has continued to experience a high intake of animals at the shelter. In the last week, PACC has taken in 374 dogs and 261 cats. The current number of dogs housed at the shelter is 492. The shelter is working hard to prevent running out of open kennels and having to put dogs in pop-up kennels again, but the shelter is close to needing to do that.

The influence of coping strategies on the long-term impacts of bullying

Peer victimization, or bullying, is a common experience in high school and one whose negative impacts are widely understood. This social stressor is associated with an array of short- and long-term effects on social-emotional functioning, academic achievement, substance use, and other health behaviors throughout life. Depression, anxiety, shyness, loneliness, and decreased self-esteem are also among the many adverse health outcomes associated with peer victimization. However, it is true that individuals can mitigate these negative effects, depending on how they respond to or cope with experiences of bullying.

Dogs, Unlike Wolves, Are Born to Communicate With People

Megan Callahan-Beckel has been working with gray wolves since she was 4 years old. Now the animal care coordinator at the Wildlife Science Center in Minnesota—where her mother, Peggy Callahan, is the executive director—Callahan-Beckel grew up in a home inhabited by not only dogs but also wolf puppies, who must be intensively hand-reared for them to be comfortable with humans later in life. She now raises wolf puppies in her own home every summer, and they come to adore her and see her as a kind of mom.

Doubt Cast on Premise of Subsurface Liquid Water Lakes on Mars – May Just Be Frozen Clay

Three studies published in the past month have cast doubt on the premise of subsurface lakes below the Martian south pole. Where there’s water, there’s life. That’s the case on Earth, at least, and also why scientists remain tantalized by any evidence suggesting there’s liquid water on cold, dry Mars. The Red Planet is a difficult place to look for liquid water: While water ice is plentiful, any water warm enough to be liquid on the surface would last for only a few moments before turning into vapor in Mars’ wispy air.

Understanding Past Climate Change 'Tipping Points' Can Help Us Prepare for the Future

Scientists are calling for a better understanding of past extreme climate change events in an attempt to anticipate future changes. Enter geoarchaeologist and anthropologist C. Michael Barton at Arizona State University. The School of Human Evolution and Social Change researcher, along with Foundation Professor Sander van der Leeuw and an international and interdisciplinary team, published their analysis this week in the journal Nature Geoscience. The paper describes past abrupt climate changes, what led up to the “tipping points” for those events and what followed.

Tech experts share what you need to know about the Internet of Things

If someone asked you to explain what the Internet of Things (IoT) is, could you? Even though the term was introduced by Kevin Ashton of Procter & Gamble in 1999, the idea actually dates back to 1982 when students at Carnegie Mellon University invented the first “thing” — an ARPANET-connected Coca-Cola machine.

Party of four

The de Castro Lopes Francisco quadruplets are primed to take ASU by storm this fall. If three is a crowd, four is likely to be a bit overwhelming at times. Fraternal quadruplets Felipe, Jeremias, Matheus and Victor de Castro Lopes Francisco would probably agree. Growing up, the brothers had their share of sibling squabbles — on and off the soccer field.
