Monday: The full moon occurs tonight at 6:54 p.m. The full moon in September is known as the Harvest Moon. The harvest moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the fall equinox. It is called the Harvest Moon because with the light of this moon, farmers can work late at night during the peak of their harvest.

Tuesday: Half an hour after sunset, the planet Mercury remains a difficult planet to find. To find Mercury, you will need binoculars and a clear horizon to the west-southwest. Slowly scan the horizon and Mercury will appear.

Wednesday: Today is the last day of summer, because the start of tomorrow morning marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. The equinox occurs at 2:21 p.m., when the Sun is directly over the equator, and day and night are roughly equal in length. The Sun will continue to move south across our skies towards the Tropic of Capricorn as we progress into the fall.

Ball State’s Department of Counseling, Social Psychology, and Counseling Introduces Brand New Undergraduate Minor Fri, 17 Sep 2021 16:05:00 +0000

Interaction has become the focus of Ball State’s newest undergraduate miner: counseling.

At the start of the 2021-22 school year, this course replaced the university’s minor interpersonal relations. Through the minor counseling, students can learn more about “human behavior and the emotional, social, occupational, academic and physical health issues that people have at different stages of their lives,” according to the Ball State website.

Mary Kite, professor of social psychology, and Mia Tabberson, doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program, surveyed graduating students of the Counseling Psychology program during the fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters, as well as undergraduates. cycle of the minor interpersonal relations, to see which courses could benefit the students.

“We did a survey of all the students who were, at the time, in the interpersonal minor, and we asked them what courses they would like to take,” Kite said. “We received a lot of information from the students about courses that might be of interest to them. “

Tabberson hopes the new minor will provide students of all majors with interpersonal skills, including team collaboration and personal interaction experiences.

Course in counseling minor

The program requires 15 hours with two compulsory courses: CPSY 200 Counseling Fundamentals and CPSY 420 Counseling Techniques. In addition, students choose three courses from the choices:

  • CPSY 320 Addictions and Behavioral Addictions
  • CPSY 330 Career guidance
  • CPSY 340 Positive Psychology
  • CPSY 351 Diversity in Counseling
  • CPSY 360 Interrelational Aspects of Sexuality
  • CPSY 370 Introduction to Disability, Chronic Conditions and Rehabilitation

Source: Ball State Counseling Webpage for Minors

“It’s kind of a good stepping stone – if anyone thought they could maybe see themselves looking into it [to] in mental health, that would be a great type of tester to see if the material is interesting, ”Tabberson said.

Students of the interpersonal minor can choose to end their existing minor or move on to the counseling minor, Kite said. New students cannot register for the Interpersonal Relations minor, but students wishing to complete the course can do so until the end of the 2022-2023 academic year.

Kite and Tabberson have been working on the Minor Guidance Program for three years through research and investigation.

“We’re super excited about the lessons,” said Kite. “They are more contemporary than some of the things we were teaching before. “

A master’s program for the minor was created to show “what are the objectives of [the courses] are and what students would get out of the classroom[es]Kite said. After creating the masters program, they proposed the minor to the College of Health, and then it was introduced to the university.

“You have to introduce all of these people and justify the minor’s reasons,” Kite said. “Then, finally, the provost approves the minor and it happens. ”

Doctoral students, including Tabberson, teach the courses that make up the Minor in Counseling, which gives them more teaching opportunities.

Tabberson also said that classes for the new minor in counseling are more varied than what students would find in interpersonal skills classes, which she hopes will provide them with a diverse set of skills.

“The miner before had [fewer] course and fewer options, ”she said. “And [these] the new courses are hopefully more interesting for students and have more for students to apply in their work once they leave college.

Due to the improved program, Tabberson said she recommends the undergraduate minor in counseling to any student enrolled in college and believes it can benefit anyone in their future career.

“I think the skills learned in this major or minor would be applicable to any position that interacts with people on a daily basis, but in particular, those [in] help the fields, ”she said. “This minor is very complementary to any type of student attending Ball State.”

Tabberson enjoys participating in the positive psychology class, CPSY 340, and has stated that she would like to participate in its teaching. Previously, she taught a counseling skills course, CPSY 420, which sparked her interest in teaching psychological interviewing skills to students.

Kelsey Thiem, an assistant professor in the Department of Counseling Psychology, Social Psychology and Counseling, also assisted in teaching and research for the minor in counseling program. Thiem said via email that she is evaluating minors, much like the new board, through additional reading and research to ensure instruction is properly updated to meet the needs of enrolled students. .

“At the heart of our new minor, the focus is on preparing students to better understand people and their behavior,” Thiem said.

Like Tabberson, Thiem said she feels the development of the courses and the curriculum itself are moving the university forward in today’s education climate.

“Our world is becoming more diverse every day,” Thiem said, “and our courses help students better understand and appreciate the different identities people hold and the experiences they have based on those identities. Therefore, I think our minor applies to students, regardless of what field they specialize in or what career they plan to pursue.

Titans turns Harley Quinn’s biggest joke into a dangerous threat Thu, 16 Sep 2021 18:48:54 +0000

A classic Batman villain has returned to the DC Universe to continue his evolution from Gotham City’s biggest joke to a legitimate supervillain.

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Titans United # 1 on sale now from DC Comics.

Over the past few years, Kite Man has grown from one of Batman’s weirdest dark villains to a fan-favorite character, with his own tagline, “Kite-Man, back, hell yeah!” However, the Titans aren’t too excited to see him just yet.

In Titans United # 1 by Cavan Scott, Jose Luis, Jonas Trindade, Rex Lokus and Carlos M. Mangual, a strange encounter with a man who mimicked the powers of the Titans led to tragedy when he was killed. But his demise was only the prelude to more danger when Kite Man reappeared after a long absence, now seemingly wielding Raven’s powers as he defeated Hawk and Dove to the hilt. But this new set of powers is just another step in Kite Man’s recent evolution from a joke character to a serious threat to the Infinite Frontier.

RELATED: The Oracle Of The Titans May Have Just Created Batman’s Ultron – With A Twist

The Titans were still reeling from an encounter with Evan Morton, a petty con artist who was trying to change his life, but suddenly gained uncontrollable powers. The Titans failed to save him, but that wasn’t the end of the problem. Shortly thereafter, a call arrived from Hawk, who reluctantly admitted that he and Dove were being beaten by Kite Man. But both had a good excuse as to why: the normally helpless villain had somehow gained access to what appeared to be Raven’s magic, hinting that he might also be afflicted with the same condition as Evan.

But while that may make Kite Man a victim of the circumstances, at the moment he poses a credible threat to two very powerful individuals. This is the greatest distance Kite Man put between himself and the total loser that was presented to the DCU so long ago.

Kite Man was first introduced in the 1960s Batman # 133 by Bill Finger and Dick Sprang. He was a villain who used kites for all of his crimes, usually performing burglaries to steal large sums of money. In his first appearance he almost killed Robin, but since then Kite Man has become something of a joke when compared to other DC villains, a combination of his choice of theme, his silly personality, and his lack of powers. .

RELATED: Nightwing: How Dick Grayson Failed To Teach DC’s Worst Sidekick

This lasted most of his career until Tom King’s run on Batman. Before that, not much was known about Chuck Brown’s origins beyond a childhood fascination with kites. This isn’t the most intimidating backstory, nor a plausible reason why he would stick a giant kite on his back and commit crimes. This all changed during the history of “The War of Jokes and Puzzles”.

Detailing Batman’s early years, it also chronicles how Kite Man was born. He was originally a low level criminal operating during a war between the Joker and the Riddler. But he did it only to support his son, with whom he bonded by flying kites. Unfortunately, he gained attention from both sides of the war and as a result, the Riddler poisoned the string that Chuck’s son was using to hold the kite. The poor boy died soon after, leaving Chuck with a desire for revenge. He created the character of Kite Man and joined the Joker camp.

RELATED: Teen Titans Brings Back Classic Arrowverse Villain With New Deadly Plan

But that was just the start of Kite Man’s tragedy. He then helped Batman apprehend both the Joker and the Riddler, being a key factor in ending the war and saving countless lives. But at the end of it all, the Riddler revealed that everything – his son’s death, his transformation into a Kite Man, even their collective defeat to the joke villain – was designed by the Riddler to make the Joker laugh.

It turned Kite Man from the underworld joke to perhaps one of DCU’s most tragic villains, caught in the crossfire of more dangerous villains and completely powerless to stop it all.

But he is no longer helpless. Having access to the powers of the Titans turns Kite Man from a tragic character to a believable threat. He’s already defeated Hawk and Dove, and he’s already fought Batman. If this all translates into how he uses his newfound powers, then he’s become a major villain.

]]> Bird Watching Today: Birds Warn Birds and Animals | New Sat, 11 Sep 2021 20:00:00 +0000

Among the ornithological specialties, one stands out particularly well: behavior.

If hawks and owls are hiding in trees when looking for a meal or trying to sleep, the nosy jay or crow will find them. These wanderers have been compared to warning systems in the bird world, just like corvids in general. Their high intelligence makes them think, and with that ability also comes fun. If any of the corvids are gathering around a cluster of trees, they have found something that you will soon hear about.

From time to time we walk in the forest in search of birds to observe. Warning systems in closed areas become the job of songbirds, as the area is denser. Groups of birds like the downy woodpecker, chickadee, nuthatch, and crested tit get together and watch each other when needed. Some of these birds will scan the sky for hawks (especially accipiters), trees for snakes, and the ground for rats and other land predators. Once something is spied on, the birds will send an alarm call to those who weren’t on the alert.

What’s surprising is that studies have been done that show birds and other animals like chipmunks and squirrels can figure out what the other is trying to convey. There are different alarm calls for known predators, suspected predators, and humans, and these animals will behave accordingly. Predators known as the Red-tailed Hawk elicit a different response and alarm call than a bird watcher.

Some of us have also witnessed the appearance of an eagle at our favorite birding site. It never ceases to laugh at how an eagle, no matter how large, can be spied on by a seagull before a human knows it’s on the horizon. When a group of gulls take off, rest assured that there is something to fear in their path. However, there are a few unlucky ones, such as American coots and Pied-billed Grebes, who sometimes sacrifice themselves for the good of others.

Mississippi kites that perch on power lines usually hunt large insects and the very rare bird. However, most birds know they are safe and will perch right next to them on high wires, but the Fork-tailed Kite will pick up chicks and small vertebrates from the treetops. The dovetail is more of a threat to birds, although it is not as abundant.

We must pity the American Kestrel, who minds his business by hunting mice. During desperate times when the Cooper’s Hawk and Red-tailed Hawk move in, it’s the kestrel that loses its prey, and no verbal complaints will change the outcome.

Juvenile tits will fight to death if one irritates the other. The writer once parted two on wet ground before the inevitable.

During nesting season, a Baltimore Oriole fed an Eastern Phoebe who had just taken flight. Perhaps this is because the youngster made it known he was hungry and nature kicked in, but was the oriole just helping?

Kitefest takes off | Wareham Sat, 04 Sep 2021 19:36:05 +0000

When the wind was cooperative, freshly decorated kites soared into the sunny blue skies of Onset Beach on Saturday, September 4, as part of the Onset Bay Association’s sixth annual Kitefest.

Out of town visitors and families from Wareham gathered on the beach to decorate and fly kites with the help of a few volunteers from the association, including Milly Burrows, Jane Haupt, Melissa Goodell and Noah Young.

Onset Bay Association volunteer Amanda Cobb, who coordinated the event, said Kitefest drew children from Wareham and Onset, as well as many families from places such as Brockton, New Bedford, Rhode Island and New Jersey.

The festival offers something new and different for children to do, she said.

“Kids don’t fly kites anymore,” Cobb said. “For many children, this is their first time.

She said Kitefest is generally a big hit with families and children often fly their kites with their parents and grandparents. There’s no pressure because it’s not competitive, Cobb said.

From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., plain white kites could be purchased from Onset Bay Association volunteers for $ 5, and there were plenty of markers on hand for the kids to spend time on. decorate their new kites.

“They spend about as much time – sometimes more time – decorating as they do flying,” Cobb said.

The Kitefest was held, in part, thanks to contributions from the Wareham Cultural Council, Cobb said.

The Wareham Cultural Council is one of more than 300 local councils in the state that receive funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to support community projects and programs in the arts, humanities and sciences.

Kitefest was the last official Onset Bay Association event of the summer, but the group is still looking for volunteers to help with the events. Anyone interested can contact the association by email
