All the world's a stage

December 10, 2014 - 9:44am
John F. Kennedy once said, "If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him." I agree with him wholeheartedly. I remember the day that sentiment hit home for me personally. My then-17-year-old daughter, who had been researching colleges and programs and figuring out what she wanted to do, came to me and said, "It might not be the smartest or most stable thing to do, but I don't want to be 50 years old regretting that I never tried to make it in musical theater." How could I argue with my spirited and wise kid who could see at a young age that if you give up on your vision or your dreams too early, you will regret it? She's a smart kid who could have studied just about anything in college. She knew she could follow a traditional path toward a career that offered easier job opportunities, stability and financial security, but she also knew that wouldn't make her happy. I had to set my talented artist free to follow her vision.

Facing off with a fungal threat

December 9, 2014 - 3:26pm
That fuzzy fungus creeping onto the forgotten food buried in your crisper is hiding something. Mold is more than a nuisance that spoils dated produce, it also indicates the presence of toxins. Certain molds, such as those that grow on corn, pistachios and peanuts, produce a deadly carcinogenic toxin called aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is responsible for up to 28 percent of liver cancer cases worldwide and is the biggest risk factor for the disease. But an MSU researcher is fighting the fungus and working to prevent future cases of aflatoxin-induced liver cancer.
