Eating the right foods might be on the minds of those who wish to stay healthy, but eating safely is the focus of the Food Microbiology Symposium. Arriving at SCSU this fall, the symposium will highlight the ever-expanding relationship between microbiological technologies and our everyday produce. These technologies are used to treat the food we eat to ensure it is safe for people to consume. Many people involved with food safety and microbiology industries will be attending, from food technology advocates, to quality assurance professionals, laboratory professionals, NICHOLAS SIMMONS / STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER

McMullen-Boyer said she always enjoyed listening to him read the news. “Marty was from the Iron Range and he had a style about him; not only in his personality but also on the air. I loved when he did a newscast. He could deliver the news spot on. He could read everything … but imagine it being delivered with a very solid Iron Range accent. And that was very endearing,” she said. “We miss him and we love him,” McMullen-Boyer said. “He was a salt of the Earth guy.” Sundvall also taught at Minnesota School of Business and St. John’s University.

Students and citizens gather in the Capital of Wisconsin to protest the governor’s budget repair bill.

Walker recall was waste

Christian Gilman MANAGING EDITOR

Bills. Protests. Ballots. Scott Walker remains governor of Wisconsin. When Walker unveiled his budget, busting collective bargaining rights for many public employee unions, protests erupted. The state capital was infused with teachers, students and private citizens protesting the bill. It was a round the clock occupation of the capital. Organizers provided food, shelter, health care, day care, education and a sense of purpose for the protesters who accepted the call to camp out in the capital. Citizens of Wisconsin spent the better part of a aMIZIVLPITN ÅOP\QVO\PM system to oust Walker. They even set up a website “” Hundreds of thousands of dollars poured into Wis-

consin in the past months preparing for the recall of the century. This historic recall amounted to nearly $70 million in campaign funds. This shattered Wisconsin’s record of $37 million [XMV\_PMV?ITSMZ_I[ÅZ[\ elected governor. This is astonishing as the majority of the money raised by Walker came from outside Wisconsin. After thousands of people went to the polls, millions of dollars spent, tears were shed as the announcement came — Walker wins the recall. Many saw this as a Republican win for big business and a loss for private citizens. But what about the cost? Was the recall worth it? Before the outcome many would say the recall was necessary. Necessary to allow the voters of Wisconsin to express their opinion and MTMK\\PMWNÅKQIT\PMa_Q[P to reside in the governor’s mansion in their home state. After the results the opinion varies more. This is because the results did not change...Scott Walker is still

A waste of money. The biggest result of the recall was to show everyone, the more money you have – the better your chances of winning are. Politics are a money game. This recall is a perfect example of it. A look at the money difference between Walker and his opponent, Tom Barret, will show you – money matters. Walker raised over seven times the amount Barret did in campaign contributions. Most of the money was spent in television advertising. Walker was able to put his face on more stations, more personal TV’s than his opponent. The recall was pointless as the fallout shows – the people have chosen – Scott Walker is governor of Wisconsin.

Kids do not get enough quality family time anymore Mark Schrom SUMMER SPORTS & FITNESS EDITOR

In the age of wireless internet, and being constantly connected to the world, it seems like so many kids lose the true importance of family time. Everyone is constantly doing something these days. For kids, playing outside and riding there bike seems like a thing of the past. Now they are constantly texting three people at once and you can barley get a “yes” or a “no” out of them, let alone getting kids to sit down for quality family time. Kids are not the only onesto blame either, so many parents work there butts off all day every day but forget the importance of family time. Father’s Day was yesterday, a holiday that rather obligates people to get together. According to A.C. Nielsen Co. the

average parent only spends 38.5 minutes per week in a meaningful conversation with their children. I don’t think that amount of time is []NÅKQMV\NWZIVaKPQTL A family meal helps emphasize the importance of the family as a unit. Meals will help everyone sit down together and discuss life and daily issues. According to Harvard research, family dinners are more important than play, story time and other family events in the development of vocabulary of younger children. The dinner table is a place where \ITSKIVÆW_NZMMTa It teaches kids how to express themselves properly and gives them “real live” demonstrations and practice not only in speech but also social interactions. Family meals play a vital role in the importance of the health of children as well, meals can be a useful tool in teaching healthy eating habits.

Adolescents can learn proper eating habits from seeing the balanced meal that is prepared. A study done in 2004 at the University of Minnesota stated that “Adolescent girls who have frequent family meals, and a positive atmosphere during those meals, are less likely to have eating disorders.” Family dinners help establish proper eating habits for the rest of their life. During meals, family can interact with each other and be connected on a deeper level. Children can hear about the occurrences in the work place and the troubles of every day life. This will help them build a better understanding of the real world and be more prepared for a higher level of education. Vice-versa, parents can be more involved with their kids daily life. Just listening to your child’s successes and problems at schools shows them

that you care and gives them incentive to keep trying. It can also be used as a time to address sex, alcohol and drugs. By keeping kids informed about these things in a very informal comfortable atmosphere, it can reinforce your moral beliefs within your kids. By taking the time to cook a healthy and balanced family meal once or twice a week, it will build cohesion of the family. Family time is the most important time. Kids need to disconnect from the wireless world and share their lives with family more than 30 minutes a week and parents need to take some time off from work and show children that family time matters. 6WWVMJMVMÅ\[NZWUNI[\NWWLIVL VWNIUQTa\QUMM^MZaWVMJMVMÅ\[NZWU a family meal.
