For years, archaeological teams have traveled to Israel to explore and excavate the area – to learn about the history, culture and to further experience this ancient land. Dr. John Strong, associate professor of religious studies at Missouri State University, has participated in many of these digs, and he discusses the plans for this summer (June 13-July15). He will also be blogging about his experiences at www.missouristate.edu/relst.
Just being told to eat right or exercise can be frustrating for people who do not know where to begin in their quest for better health. To assist people in finding their appropriate blend of fitness and nutrition, Dr. Barbara Bushman, professor of health, physical education and recreation at Missouri State University, compiled and edited a new resource from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), “The ACSM’s Complete Guide to Fitness & Health.” The book is available at www.humankinetics.com/ or at many online bookstores.
