tice yesterday after the loss against O’Gorman,” Klatt said. “We focused on what we needed to work on and we feel great about our chances. Now, we just have to come out and execute.” Senior forward Jack Talley is ready. “This needs to be a high intensity game on and off the court,” Talley said. “We know what we need to accomplish to get the W.” Dress theme tonight is designated as orange crush.

Thank you for your service, President Barack Obama

Aerospace firms start recruitment

I guess it is true when people say you never know how much you will miss someone until they are gone. Tuesday night, President Barack Obama said goodbye to America, giving his last speech of his presidency in the city where it all started. Obama earned applause and approval from the Chicago crowd of 18,000 people where he first launched his presidential campaign as he addressed topics relating to the economy and racism and also talked about supporting his successor, Hear me. . . President-elect Donald Trump. But what captured the attenMaham Shah tion of Americans nationwide was his heartfelt tributes to Vice President Joe Biden and First Lady Michelle Obama. He moved the hearts of listeners while praising his “brother”(Biden) and “best friend” (Michelle). He ended the night next to family, friends and those gathered to bid farewell to the leader. Well, Warriors, this is MY ode to the greatest POTUS of my lifetime. Dear Barack Hussein Obama: Thank you for going down in history as one of the most influential persons in our time. Thank you for making me feel safer in my own country. Thank you for fighting for the environment, the veterans, the Muslims, the Native Americans, the LGBTQ community, the immigrants and the medical industry. And thank you for never giving up on America. Through relentless economic problems, tragic and deadly events and hate crimes, you never lost hope for us. You will be missed. Sincerely, Proud U.S. Citizen Maham Shah Vote senior Maham Shah for president in 2036.

By Samantha Masunaga Los Angeles Times (TNS) LOS ANGELES — Silicon Valley and other tech centers have always been popular landing places for young engineers, with their lure of cutting-edge technology and top-notch pay. But aerospace companies are facing an even stiffer challenge as Web and computer companies, and other sectors like the auto industry, move into areas like drones and autonomous systems.


171 Augustana students are spending January studying in 22 countries throughout the world and Hawai’i.


Technology Watch Aerospace employers are realizing they have to dig deeper — and adjust their messaging — to capture top tech talent. They are starting to reach out earlier to potential employees — as early as elementary school or even pre-kindergarten — to get them interested in science and math. And they’re recognizing the challenge they have building awareness with a generation that never had a real space race, but grew up with Google, Snapchat and Apple as part of their daily lives. Lockheed Martin Corp. has launched a program called Generation Beyond aimed at encouraging middle school students’ interest in deep space exploration. The initiative includes a class curriculum, a downloadable Mars weather app and a traveling school bus modified so that children riding it can see the Martian landscape through the windows.
