Grown In Your Own Backyard The Hydroponics Tomato Greenhouse at Brigham Young University-Idaho is located on the south side of the Benson building. The primary purpose for the on-site greenhouse is not only educational, but it also supplies tomatoes to University’s Food Services. The greenhouse tomatoes are available to the University from January to July, every year. Food Services use an average of 400 to 500 pounds of tomatoes per week. Surprisingly, the greenhouse here on campus can provide at least two-thirds of those tomatoes. The greenhouse was constructed with glass so that natural sunlight can easily penetrate the walls and reach the plants. An advanced ventilation system allows proper airflow to the plants, as a generator then creates carbon dioxide, a gas that tomato plants readily need to survive. “The greenhouse provides hands on learning. You get to work with fertilizers and see how increasing and decreasing certain fertilizers affect the plants,” said Chad Blackburn, Hydroponics Greenhouse Manager. Since tomato plants can grow 24 hours a day, special lamps turn on at certain parts of the day (at night for instance) to supply adequate lighting for the plants. Care such as this, ensures continuous growth. Plants that normally grow in a warm climate are unable to sustain themselves if transported and grown in a colder environment. With the help of a solid, sophisticated greenhouse provides a convenient method of horticultural production. Having a controlled and contained setting, allows plant life to thrive without interruption, a fascinating...

F O L L O W I N G THE DEATH of Osama Bin Laden, many American young people across the country gathered on street comers and in front of the White House, some celebrating with chants of "U-S-A" and others singing the national anthem. Press coverage of the youthñil celebrators, many of them part of Generation Y or the Millennial Generation, renamed these young people the "9/11 Generation."' Newspaper accounts following Bin Laden's demise discuss him as "the common evil" that the Millennial Generation faced in much the same way as their grandparents had faced Hitler.2 One student remarks that Bin Laden's death is "the defining moment" of his generation.^ Nine-eleven, it appears, is a memorable moment for this generation. Over nine years earlier, on September 11, 2001,1 was also concemed about how young people would come to understand what came to be called "9/11." After spending the moming of September 11, 2001 watching television as the Twin Towers in New York collapsed, I arrived on campus to teach my lower-division history class, and was immediately informed that classes were cancelled for the day because of the "evil attacks." Since I regularly tell my students that "evil" is not a useful analytic term for the writing and understanding of history, I devised a questionnaire for my History 101 students to assess their understanding of the event."

One of the first things we, our family and our friends notice as we get older is the rapidly receding hairline. In some cases, the hairline does not recede instead it forms odd islands and lagoons. Our hair is prominently located on the top of our head and therefore, any changes are immediately noticed. The quantum of hair on the head and its location can dramatically alter a person’s appearance. Fortunately, medical science has made deep strides in this area and can help people recover some of their lost looks.
