Enterprise Web Initiative
What's our progress?
Nancy Newland, IT Service Owner, NNewland@csi.edu, 208-732-6238

Welcome to the first eNotes project update for the Enterprise Web Initiative. 

Perhaps as you already know, PowerEngineers out of Boise has teamed up with CSI to help redesign our web site. It is really 4 projects in 1. Identity Management, Website Redesign, Intranet, Student Portal.



First, it was established when and how a person becomes a CSI identity. Here is where we are on that:



Next is the exciting part of the project- the website!



Additionally, last week PowerEngineers offered us a sneak peek of some mock ups they had made for the new website home page and mobile look. This is not the final design, just a taste of what may be to come!

The CSI Forensics Team Needs Students!!!  Have your students join the speech and debate team. They will take COMM 105, get three credits, travel, compete and have fun. COMM 105 is both an academic class and a competitive team. Students will prepare speeches and travel throughout the Northwest to competitions with students in other colleges - both community colleges and universities. All travel costs are covered by CSI. The team will even travel to Washington, D.C. in the spring. Not only will they get excellent speech and communication training, they'll broaden their knowledge of current events, history, critical thinking, and argumentation.

The College of Southern Idaho Sustainability Council is working to turn shoes into cash for the Twin Falls Humane Society's animal shelter. THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 15! And now, you can send yourself a reminder so you don't forget to donate! Here are two reminder options:  

1. Push notifications: Open your web browser on your phone and go to rmd.at/shoed. Follow the instructions to sign up for reminders.   

Or   

2. Text notifications: Text the message @shoed to the number 81010   

Volunteers with the council have placed collection bins at every building on the CSI campus as well as at the animal shelter at 420 Victory Avenue in Twin Falls. People are urged to donate their lightly used shoes to any of the bins. The CSI group has partnered with Funds2Orgs, a network of micro-enterprise partners in developing nations which will buy the shoes for redistribution to help people in those nations start, maintain, and grow businesses such as Haiti, Honduras, and other African and Central American nations. The Sustainability Council hopes to gather enough pairs of shoes to earn $1,000 to donate to the animal shelter. Glanbia Foods corporate office in Twin Falls and Sawtooth Elementary School have joined the shoe donation effort.   

For more information, please contact CSI Sustainability Council co-chair Jan Simpkin at 732-6840 or at  jsimpkin@csi.edu.

CSI Hosteurs Club students will sell food throughout the show, including loaded baked potatoes, homemade chili, Navajo tacos, scones, bread bowl soup and beverages. Candied apples and crepes will also be available.

Persistence
CSI Stage Door Series: Persistence of Memory
The CSI Stage Door Series will present "Persistence of Memory" on November 16. The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students and will be available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu.

Time can affect our perception of art in a myriad of ways. CSI faculty members Scott Farkas, Brent Jensen and Milica Popovic will address this matter by looking back at their own personal artistic histories while spontaneously creating art on stage in reaction to those remembrances. Through the use of audio and visual retrospectives of the artists' work, the audience will experience the reactions, reflections and projections of the artists as they comment on their output in real time. 

The CSI Stage Door Series, intimate arts experiences where both performers and audience members are on the stage itself, are designed to be thought-provoking and a little out of the ordinary in different ways - whether it's because of the intimate setting, the material performed, the way they are presented, or the collaborations involved. Follow up productions include Something Special - The Legacy of R.J. Baxter and the Ineffable Power of Radio, Inside Earth, Wine, and Fire, Dear Elizabeth, Soiled Doves, and The Mathematics of Resonant Bodies.

Men
Men's Best Life: 20 Ways to Never Get Sick
-By Grant Stoddard for Best Life Men's Health

Note: This is great advise for men and women alike! Subscribe to get more great articles.
Those friends, family members or coworkers who never get sick may seem superhuman. But it's a lot more likely that they're instituting some of the immunity-boosting strategies below to ward off seasonal viruses such as colds and flu. Be like them! Don't wait until you feel something's amiss. Absorb the following tips and limit your chances of being laid up with the man flu this season.

1. MIND OVER MATTER
Some people swear that echinacea and vitamin C helps them stave off cold and flu like nothing else. They're so steadfast in those beliefs that the shortage of scientific evidence to support them doesn't seem to matter. But that's not to say that these scientifically unsupported preventative measures don't work. The fact that people believe they do might be why, experts say.

2. SLEEP
Scientists do agree on the efficacy of a good night's sleep in lowering your chances of getting sick. According to recent research, people who sleep only five to six hours a night have a 30% chance of catching a cold, while those who get more than seven hours reduce their risk to 17%.

3. EAT YOUR CARROTS
Although there's not much empirical evidence for Vitamin C's role in preventing cold and flu, there is data showing that Vitamin A does play an important role in the immune system. It does that by helping to regulate T cells, the SWAT team of the immune system. Just one medium carrot contains 200% of the suggested daily Vitamin A intake.

4. DON'T STRESS
Time and time again, stress has been shown to make people susceptible to getting sick. Although the causes of stress in your life may be inevitable, the way in which you choose to deal with them isn't. Strategies for siphoning off stress include exercise, meditation, better quality of sleep and making time to do the things that you really enjoy doing.

5. EAT STRAWBERRIES
Although there are lots of great foods to help fight stress, strawberries are an easy snack, dessert, or addition to a salad. The berry is packed with vitamin C, which reduces stress if you believe that sort of thing - which in turn can help boost your immune system. Even with new farming techniques, winter can be a strawberry desert. Buy frozen strawberries when they're not available fresh, and add them to a warm dessert to double down on comfort.

Brady Tom Brady's 5 Best Men's Life Tips
Tom Brady's 5 Best Men's Life Tips
 
Bestlifeonline.com

Are you ready to do the drill and take a few lessons from Tom Brady? Bring these five tips to work and watch your management skills sharpen before your eyes ... and your boss's too.
Be the Leader, Not the Boss
"You choose to be quarterback, you take on a lot of other things. You can't ask people to do things or set expectations for them without doing things or setting even higher expectations for yourself. If you're the one screwing up or screwing off, it becomes just a lot of talk. I've always tried to be the guy who expects the most out of himself, so when I do ask those other guys to do the same, they'll look at me and say, 'Well, maybe this guy isn't so full of crap.'"
Get Comfortable With Control
If your priorities are about the team and its success, then other guys won't be so hesitant to let you take over. "I like to have my hands in a little bit of everything," says Brady. "There were a lot of things I didn't feel comfortable having my hands in, but with the leadership challenges that I face now, I'm very comfortable with the demands of it. That definitely has become easier over the years. You gain credibility with the past performance, and that's what you use."
Be Part of the Team
"The only thing 'individual' about a team sport is what I control: My actions and my attitude. If you want an individual sport, play tennis or golf. Then you're Tiger Woods and everything's great; you only have yourself to blame. When you're playing a team sport, you really understand that it takes every player on the team to achieve your goals, even if it's a rookie sixth-round draft pick."
Work Well With Other Bosses
All bosses have bigger bosses, and quarterbacks have head coaches. Brady's boss happens to be a guy named Bill Belichick. "Our relationship is based on about 90 percent football, which is right where I want it," says Brady. "What's most important to Coach Belichick is winning football games, and that's what's most important to me. As long as those priorities remain the same, we're always going to get along. I trust him so much in any decision he has to make, and over the years I've gained his trust too. Now I feel like when he asks me a question, he genuinely wants to know not just the answer, but my answer. There's no other coach I'd ever want to play for."

New talent needs time to assimilate, of course, but they have to execute at game time. "Jump in as fast as you can," says Brady. "Communicate the best you can, involve yourself in what they are doing throughout the day, and develop a relationship. With each practice, you learn something different. As Coach Belichick says, "The price for success is always paid in advance."

Researchers are now convinced that HPV causes most oropharyngeal cancers; the latest findings show that 3 out of 4 cases of the disease are HPV-positive. - Evan Kafka
by Peter Jaret, AARP The Magazine, Oct/Nov 2016
 
Even before the biopsy results, Scott Davis sensed something was wrong. On a camping trip with his wife in the summer of 2015, the 55-year-old AARP creative director from Washington, D.C., noticed a small lump in his neck. Back home, his primary care doctor recommended waiting a couple of weeks. "But I just didn't feel comfortable waiting," Davis says.
He was right to be worried. Arjun Joshi, a surgeon at George Washington University, performed a biopsy on his neck that showed cancer in his lymph nodes; a subsequent examination revealed that the cancer's source was one of his tonsils.
The diagnosis came as a shock. "Cancer doesn't run in my family," Davis says. "I've always thought of myself as healthy and active. I'm not a smoker."
Joshi told Davis that he was not alone, and that the majority of cases he sees are similar. Indeed, more and more men just like Davis - healthy, in their 40s to 60s - are showing up with a form of throat cancer that targets the tonsils and the back of the tongue, an area called the oropharynx. One of Davis' colleagues, in fact, is battling the same form of cancer.
Oropharyngeal carcinomas are diagnosed in more than 15,000 men and women in the U.S. each year. But public health experts warn that the number of cases in men over age 50 will rise dramatically in the coming years.
Zeroing in on an unexpected culprit
Thirty years ago, as the overall incidence of head and neck cancers began declining, experts assumed that oropharyngeal cancers were on the run. Smoking has the leading risk factor. As tobacco use declined, so would cases of the cancer. But instead, even as fewer Americans smoked, doctors began to diagnose more oropharyngeal cancers. Many patients, like Davis, were younger than the typical ones doctors had seen before. Men outnumber women 4 to 1.
Maura Gillison, an oncologist at the Ohio State University in Columbus, was one of the first researchers to suspect that the cancers were being caused by an unexpected culprit: human papillomavirus, or HPV, the same virus that causes cervical cancer in women.

Craft
Fall Wellbeing Craft Make-it-and-Take-it is Nov. 16
Join Ansina Durham and Sandy Wapinski on Wednesday, November 16th from 2-3 p.m. in the CSI Library Quiet Room
 
We will create a Thanksgiving Bowl hoping it becomes part of your family's tradition of giving thanks. The simple leaf bowl, fashioned from repurposed book pages holds acorns gathered from the grounds at the College of Southern Idaho. As the bowl is passed around, everyone may take an acorn to express gratitude, silently or out loud. Pass the bowl again to collect the acorns. Placed on the table, the full bowl is a reminder of all your family's blessings.
 
~ Let our lives be full of both Thanks and Giving.
