Posting memories on social media help people remember them, even if the events are less significant than others, researchers at Cornell University have found. Qi Wang, a professor in Cornell’s School of Human Ecology, led the research. Wang instructed participants to keep a diary to record everything that happened to them during the day, whether they had posted about them online and how important the events were to them. A surprise memory test after one week revealed that participants were more likely to remember the events they posted on social media, even if they were less important than other events.…

By: Christie Citranglo, Sydney O’Shaughnessy, Sarah Chaneles Dilmun Hill Student Farm at Cornell University has been harvesting vegetables for the community for 20 years — now with a new high tunnel. The farm is a student- and volunteer-run organization that harvests for the Community Supported Agriculture. Workers grow and harvest vegetables for the CSA supporters, and the supporters reap both the risks and benefits of local farming. However, with their newly installed high tunnel, farmers at Dilmun Hill will be able to extend the growing season of most of their crops. High tunnels are similar to greenhouses as they provide…

Not only is Tompkins County in a drought, but 24 counties in the state of New York are currently in varying degrees of natural disasters. The severe drought has been going on since late spring when a high-pressure system sat over the area for a prolonged period of time. A high-pressure system is a region of high-pressure air moving counterclockwise. It is also called an anticyclone. High-pressure systems are usually larger and last for a long period of time. What is the most important fact about high-pressure systems for Ithacans? They cause the area affected to be dry…

by Cecilia Morales and Alexa Salvato On a crisp, sunny Saturday in Ithaca, New York, over a dozen Ithacans gathered in Carpenter Circle, clad in overalls and hiking boots, to spend their morning working hard in Ithaca Community Garden. Sept. 24 was this month’s workday at the garden. The workday system allows gardeners with plots to help out in the garden as part of a payoff system for the cost of their plots, completing various tasks to maintain the garden. “Basically we work on the compost, we mow, we have a couple food donation plots, that people work on,…

By Tiarra Braddock and Sharon Mejia Have you ever wondered how modern technology can help people with disabilities? The Finger Lakes Independence Center, FLIC, in Ithaca has launched a five-part workshop series named “Powering Up Your Potential: Adaptive Devices and Assistive Tech”. These kind of workshops aim to inform people about technology that can assist people with disabilities to live more independently, without any barriers. The first workshop of the series was on Sept. 23 and it was a screening of the documentary “Freedom Machines.” This documentary tells the stories of individuals with disabilities who have overcome challenges with the…

By Mary Ford and Rachel Wolfgang Families went to the Museum of the Earth in Trumansburg Sept. 24 to take part in Museum Day Live!, a national event hosted by the Smithsonian through which local museums offer free admission to visitors. The Museum of the Earth featured its newly acquired Stegosaurus and Quetzalcoatlus models as well as dioramas and tree models, all given to the museum by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Beth Stricker, director of exhibitions at the Paleontological Research Institution, was involved in acquiring the artifacts from the Smithsonian and designing the exhibit as the Museum…

by Sara Kim and Annie Uhle A semi-retired business owner, Kristin Lovelace-Ross recently has more free time since decreasing her work hours. In her free time, she cares for her own flower and vegetable garden.

Founded in 2002, the Tompkins County Community Beautification Program is supported by the Tompkins County Tourism Program and the area’s hotel room tax, according to the Cornell…

By Rachel Mucha and Anne Uhle The excitement was palpable as dozens of children ran around the museum’s crowded rooms, stuffing colorful eggs into their bags. While many children were preoccupied with the egg hunt, others were playing with dinosaurs toys or learning about prehistoric eggs from workers. All of this was a part of the Dino Eggstravaganza that the Museum of the Earth holds every year during the Easter season. The Dino Eggstravaganza was happening long before the Museum of the Earth even existed. Twenty years ago, it was simply called the Dinosaur Egg Hunt, and it took place…

By Aaron Laramee and Arlana Shikongo The millennial generation is teased for being born with their cellphones and tablets in their hands. Despite their seemingly inherent tech savviness, technology and science are ever evolving industries and new gadgets are booted out of factories daily. That said, it is not every day that one has the opportunity to fiddle with 3-D printers or voice-activated speakers, but during the Tech Week held at the Groton Public Library, members of the community did. Teen Tech Week, a teaching based, nationwide event, aims to expose teenagers to technology, digital resources and services. The Groton…
