Macarons, sold on weekends at the 43rd Express Vietnamese restaurant in Phoenix, AZ.  

Flavors here include: Green tea, Pandan, Thai tea, Lemon, Red velvet, Almond, Coffee, Tiramisu, Taro, and that blue one that kind of tasted like bubble gum. :)

You can also get them with a big slab of ice cream in the middle. :P

Street food in Guiyang, the capital of Guizhou Province. Guizhou is the poorest province in China and kind of reminds me of what China was like 20 years ago.

For Pork Lovers - This was a "naturally" raised pig, cooked Hakka style at a family farm restaurant near Hsinchu, Taiwan.  Doesn't get much better than this! (apologies to my Muslim friends)

SESSION ANNOUNCEMENT: Sport, nationalism, and geopolitical identity narratives (N.B. this session is already full!)

AAG Annual Meeting, Chicago, April 21-25, 2015

Session organizers:
Natalie Koch, Syracuse University, nkoch@maxwell.syr.edu
Pauliina Raento, University of Helsinki, pauliina.raento@helsinki.fi

Although often overlooked by academics, sport is an especially productive lens through which to analyze and understand the performance of nationalism and geopolitical identity narratives around the world. The various practices, subjectivities, and institutions surrounding sport represent a powerful means by which the state system has developed and been reproduced. So too are sports a way to challenge assumptions about the territorial state and citizenship, as confirmed by extensive media coverage during the 2014 World Cup and Sochi Olympics about athletes representing states other than “their own.”

Part of a broader discussion about subjectivity, nationalism, and geopolitics, the goals of this session are 1) to unite political and sports geographers working on these intersecting themes through specific case studies; and 2) to consider overlaps with related subfields, such as animal geographies, cultural geography, etc.
Join Us in Chicago. You will be joined by fellow geographers, GIS specialists, environmental scientists, and other leaders for the latest in research and applications in geography, sustainability, and GIScience. Headquarters Hotel: Hyatt Regency, 151 East Wacker Drive, Chicago, Ill.

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Please contact LESLIE if you are interested in participating in a panel session on:
"Geography, Sustainability and the Green Campus"

2015 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers, April 21-25, Chicago, IL.

Sustainability is one of the "Hottest College Majors" according to a recent report by US News and World Report.  This session will investigate what we, as Geographers, are doing to provide our students with skills and knowledge related to sustainability education. The discipline of Geography has a long tradition of addressing these topics, whether we called it "man-land," "nature and society" or "humans and the environment."  Perhaps the newest term is simply "sustainability."

This session provides examples of how Geography is participating in promoting sustainability through our teaching, mentoring, and advising. We will explore: whether sustainability courses being taught in Geography Departments or elsewhere on campus;  if Geography Faculty are the advisors of student groups that focus on sustainability initiatives; and the extent to which we provide linkages between our geographic research and student interest in sustainability.

If you have examples from your own experience, and want to participate in this panel session, please contact me as soon as possible and by October 20th at the latest.

Thanks, Leslie

This is the most authentic Mexican food in town. This is where all of the Mexican laborers eat -- sometimes I am the only non-Mexican in the restaurant! I almost always order the daily special and have never been disappointed. If you want Real-Mex (not Tex-Mex of Fast-Mex), this is the place!
