Rosemont Middle School seventh graders are looking at their parents, then into a mirror, seeing their hair and eye color in a whole new way, thanks to teacher Mike Heft’s course on genetics and how to determine dominant genes. To introduce his students to the field of genetics, Heft gave his students a worksheet that had a mom and dad “unimonster,” little creatures that were a cross between a gerbil and Thing from the “Addams Family.” Each parent had his or her own distinct look, with one having curly and the other straight hair.

Lincoln alumnus and two-time Olympian Donna Mayhew (javelin) was a special guest. Mayhew talked to the teams about sportsmanship and her Olympic experiences and showed pictures and medals of her accomplishments.

Part 2   Picking up where we left off — weight does not determine your size, shape or health. Though it may be a contributing factor, a more accurate gauge of health and wellness is how you feel. Sometimes, heavier is better. Here are a few things that can add pounds and may enhance your health at the same time.  Dense bones weigh more and are more resistant to injury and osteoporosis.  Hydration keeps your many systems running — body fluids circulate throughout your body: in the colon, intestines, joints and stomach.

Part 2   For a successful appearance, the positive appearance of an employee in a corporation can attract more clients and create more chances for promotion. A negative appearance can create barriers between employee/potential clients and inhibit chances for professional advancement. Corporate human resources are asking for image consultation seminars and employee support, particularly for new employees entering employment from colleges. Jeans, T-shirts, sneakers, and an ultra-casual attitude and collegiate appearance are detrimental to an employee in a corporate culture.

Many charities have reported a decrease in the amount of donations received due to the poor state of the economy. In what ways can people be charitable even if they are not able to give monetarily?   If the money experts are right, we have a difficult few years ahead of us. Bailouts, foreclosures, layoffs, store closings — all of these seem to loom in our future. The more we hear, the more apprehensive we become about our national and even international financial security.

Many charities have reported a decrease in the amount of donations received due to the poor state of the economy. In what ways can people be charitable even if they are not able to give monetarily? These are difficult times and it seems that we are just at the beginning. Everyone will be affected. We all have an obligation to cut back on our frivolous spending, but we also have an obligation to give to charity. In Judaism, tzedakah is the word usually used for charity. But it is a poor translation, for the word tzedakah really means “justice,” not “charity,” and that is a huge difference.

Many charities have reported a decrease in the amount of donations received due to the poor state of the economy. In what ways can people be charitable even if they are not able to give monetarily? Perhaps it is time to think differently about ways in which we can support charities. Our Master Teacher, Jesus, praised the widow who gave her two copper coins (which amounted to one penny) to the temple treasury. She put in all that she had, her whole living. This story is commonly known as “The Widow’s Mite,” (Mark 13:43)
