Microchip Research

The implanting of microchips into the human body is becoming a new “trend,” in which tens of thousands of people around the world are applying to replace all personal identification documents, including personal identification (for each individual).

It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye…

Well we finally made it, the end of semester number two in our graduate school journey. Oh what a semester it has been! Unexpected and unprecedented to say the least! It’s been difficult to stay motivated and keep a smile on my face during these stressful and scary times, but I tried my very best […]

The Loyal Resident

It was March 16, 2020, a beautiful day with marshmallow clouds and blue skies; the buds on the dogwood trees were struggling to bloom, and the grass was cut. The people of the town were gathering provisions — paper towels, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, Lysol spray, Clorox wipes, ground beef, chicken wings — and rushing […]

The show must go on…

I have to admit my start to this project has been a bit stalled. I have been in a Research and Methodologies coma for the last two weeks anxiously trying to perfect my research purpose which is due Monday. So please forgive me. Dr. Nelson has been such a sweetheart, bless his heart with all […]
