Why bother to find a health care provider or make an appointment?

The annual check-up of the past is undergoing a total transformation, so if you haven’t had a #wellness visit in a while, it might be time to check it out.

“This course is giving students a huge opportunity to get more information on STEM fields and what it would be like to work in STEM, along with learning more about themselves.”
Addressing the STEM crisis through #career development, from Penn State College of Education: http://bit.ly/2bXCa7Y
New research out of the College of Education shows that students who participate in career development and readiness courses related to their STEM majors are less likely to switch to another major.

Geosciences professor Demian Saffer is pushing the boundaries on how we measure a spectrum of earthquakes. He served as co-chief scientist aboard several recent international drilling missions to install earthquake monitoring equipment beneath the sea floor in Japan, and will lead a project in 2018 looking at slow earthquakes off the coast of New Zealand.

“The aim of this project is to accelerate the development of the next generation of conjugated polymers for flexible electronics,” said Gomez. “By developing computational tools and examining molecular design rules, we will be able to better predict the electrical conductivity and mechanical properties of polymers to advance the development of new materials to create flexible electronic devices.”

The #research, led by Enrique Gomez, associate professor of chemical engineering at Penn State, will lay the foundation for predicting the mechanical and conductive properties of these #polymers from their chemical structure. http://bit.ly/2bxBAhi #NSF #NationalScienceFoundation
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $1.2M in funding to three Penn State chemical engineering researchers for a proposal which aims to identify the key polymeric properties of conjugated polymers used to develop flexible electronics.

A decade of #research spanning two generations of Penn State Abington students concluded last week when they unveiled a historical marker dedicated to a legendary #Philadelphia-born #Arctic explorer.

The students, along with P.J. Capelotti, professor of #anthropology at the Abington campus, and other dignitaries gathered at the tomb of Elisha Kent Kane in the city's historic Laurel Hill Cemetery. The surgeon's accomplishments earned him international fame in the mid-19th century, and he is considered the most influential of the American explorers of the Arctic.

“Kane was a brilliant writer, great explorer and respected scientist,” said Capelotti. “If you look at mid-19th century maps, the North Pole was every bit as blank as the back side of the moon was before 1968.” http://bit.ly/2bSZmku

Fueled by a lifelong love of #magazines, Lyndsay Green, who earned her Penn State #journalism degree in 2010, took her interest in #travel and created Beauty Atlas — a digital magazine that showcases how people from all corners of the globe view #beauty.

What are the styles? What kind of natural resources do some regions have that others do not? How do different cultures define “beautiful?”

What should you do when someone asks you to write a letter of recommendation or to serve as a #reference and for whatever reason you are not comfortable serving in this capacity and you are not sure how to respond to the request?
Penn State's Ask an Ethicist discusses the do's and don'ts: http://bit.ly/2bXBShA

#Career #resume #jobs
In preparation for Fall Career Days at Penn State, we are publishing questions over the next week that will discuss internships, interviewing, résumés and reference writing. The first question centers around writing references for someone. What happens when someone is asked to serve as a reference for a colleague or student and the individual is not comfortable serving in this capacity? How should someone respond to the request?

Penn State Schreyer Honors College alumnus, Luke Brezovec’s dual love for #science and #art has lead him to taking #photographs all over the world.

Brexovec, who conducted #research at the University of Cambridge through a Schreyer Honors College International Research Grant in the fall of 2013, traveled to various countries including: #Belgium, #Italy and #Poland. Brexovec, who will be attending Stanford this fall for his doctorate in #neuroscience, hopes to publish a book of all his photos from his various travels.

The Penn State Hershey #Medical Minute: The importance of catching and treating #sepsis early:

*S*lurred speech

*E*xtreme shivering, fever, very cold or muscle pain

*P*assing no urine (in a day)

*S*evere breathlessness

I feel like I might die”

*S*kin mottled or discolored

http://bit.ly/2bJ4H1h #PennState #research #health
Every minute, someone comes into a hospital emergency department in the United States with sepsis, a life-threatening over-response to infection that damages tissues and organs. The CDC has declared the condition a medical emergency.

*Penn State’*s #Financial Literacy Center is working to help the Penn State community make informed financial decisions and feel confident in money management.

“We want them [students] to learn the basics of financial literacy — especially the concepts of proper #budgeting, managing credit card and other consumer debts, and saving and investing — but most importantly, reaching for a future life based on the concepts of financial security and freedom,” said Daad Rizk, manager of the Financial Literacy Center in Penn State Outreach and Online Education. #finances #financialliteracy #money

Creating and balancing a budget, managing credit cards, saving for a rainy day, applying for student loans — managing your money can be daunting without help. Penn State has a number of resources available to students, faculty and staff to help navigate these topics and build the skills necessary for healthy financial literacy.

Psoriasis is a misunderstood #disease, often kept under wraps by sufferers who want to hide their skin lesions. This week, Dr. Sara Ferguson, a #dermatologist at Penn State Medical Group in State College, separates fact from myth about psoriasis and the various treatment options. http://bit.ly/2bUqnE3 #research #medicalminute #health

Flagship campus of large university with 24 campuses statewide & standout student-run philanthropy.- Google
"Summer classes are always smaller, class sizes can be as small as 8 students."
"Tuition keeps rising, and the quality of the education keeps falling."

If you like wasting your money on required courses such as gender studies and queer theory, then attend Penn State. It's no wonder that it was a haven for a person like Jerry Sandusky. When I attended back in the 80's, they were inculcating students with idiotic notions such as "Marriage is Rape". All of that crap is nonsense. The feminists complain about rape but not when boys are the victims.

Great place if you want to do research in gravity: I'm a graduate student in the gravity group and believe that it was a great choice to come here. Beside the excellent research, State College is a nice town (maybe a bit small) and has almost everything one can wish for - due to its size everything is also nearby. The Penn State Campus is really pretty and sometimes I just go to the Aboretum to think about my research.

PSU. High quality education comparable to Ivy League, but without the Ivy League price. Proud of my alma mater.

Big university in a small town, plenty of opportunities and resources for everyone. If you take full advantage and get involved it will certainly be an unforgettable experience. The university gets smaller the more you join clubs and activities and make them your own.

Known as a "public ivy" for a reason. Expect tough academics and to work hard for your grades. Top public university, in my opinion.

Building is one of the centers of Penn State. It has a lot of history and is a must-see if you come visit PSU. You won't be disappointed.
