Faculty and Staff Notes

Celebrate Benedictine's heritage at Founders' Day

Faculty and staff are invited to attend the annual Founders' Day Celebration at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 3, in the Krasa Dining Room. Alicia Tait, assistant to the President for Mission Integration, will present the recipient of the Kevin Doyle Faculty Award for Leadership in Mission and Catholic Identity and the speaker is Benedictine graduate Gregory Meluch, C81. The program will be streamed live to the Springfield and Mesa branch campuses. Hors d'ouvres, refreshments and desserts will be served.

Deadline for Doyle award nominations is coming soon

Each year at the Founder's Day celebration, the University honors the work of a particular faculty member who truly lives the Benedictine Hallmarks in his or her daily life; someone who demonstrates a spirit of faithful service to the University as well as to those around him or her. The Kevin Doyle Faculty Award for Leadership in Mission and Catholic Identity has been given to a faculty member each year since 2012 to recognize individuals who seek to go beyond their role, demonstrating the desire to nourish the University community through their work and witness. Nominees must be a current employee, must answer the question through his/her work and witness, "who we are as Benedictine and why we are special because of it in an effective, creative, interesting and successful way," must have already accomplished a recognized task or has something in process. Please consider a deserving nominee by providing a brief description of why you nominated that particular individual reflecting on the criteria listed above. Nominations should be sent to Alicia Cordoba Tait at atait@ben.edu. Nominations will be accepted through Friday, February 10.

The primary mission is to help spread weather information through an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand website in addition to harnessing the power of social media. The presentation includes an overview of the climatology for our area, basic storm spotting tips, cloud features and how weather works.

For children with the XP gene, sunlight can kill

Brophy, Ph.D., M.F.A., will be held from 7:00-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14, in the Goodwin Hall Auditorium. Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder of DNA repair in which the ability to repair damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) light is deficient. When exposed to the ultraviolet rays of sunlight, XP patients risk developing cancer as young children, so they live very dramatic and unusual lives. The film explores how XP families from the United States, Cuba, England, Peru, Israel, Australia, Pakistan and the Dominican Republic live, love, worship and struggle to survive. The screening is free and open to the public. A question-and-answer session will follow the screening.

Student Health Services

Beat the cold and flu season by washing your hands and getting a flu shot

Cold and flu viruses are easily spread.  It is important to take care of yourself and practice respiratory etiquette. You can decrease your chances of getting a cold or flu by getting a flu shot (the best way to protect yourself against the flu virus and to prevent the spread of flu); sleeping 7-9 hours per night, eating healthy, exercising and drinking lots of water; washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (or use an alcohol-based cleanser when soap and water are not available); and covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing. (coughing into a tissue is acceptable as long as you dispose of the tissue into the trash and wash your hands afterward). If you have a temperature of 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, you should remain at home until fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.

Healthy Table

How to tell if an avocado is ripe … or rotten

When purchasing avocados, look for hard, unripened fruit with light green skin. The Hass Avocado Board recommends purchasing unripe, firm green avocados four to five days ahead of when you need to use them and storing the fruit at room temperature. Avocados usually turn from light green to dark green to black when ripening, but some varieties don't change color, so you can't rely on color alone to determine if the fruit is ripe. Instead, gently squeeze the avocado in the palm of your hand to check for ripeness. Ripe, ready-to-eat fruit will be firm yet yield to gentle pressure. Once ripened, use avocados immediately or store them in the refrigerator for two to three days. Cut avocado can be stored in the refrigerator, but to prevent browning from oxidation, sprinkle it with lemon or lime juice and wrap it in plastic wrap, or store it in an airtight container. If the outer layer turns brown or black during storage, skim the layer and discard.
