This holiday is celebrated every year on March 17th, honoring the Irish patron saint, St. Patrick. The celebrations are largely Irish culture themed and typically consist of wearing green, parades, and drinking. Some churches may hold religious services and many schools and offices close in Suffolk County, the area containing Boston and its suburbs.

  • State projects Nevada  population topping 3 million in 2018
    Nevada is adding residents at a pace that should push the statewide population over 3 million by next year, the state's top population-counter said Tuesday.

    The Silver State today has more than 2.9 million residents, with almost 75 percent living in Clark County and the Las Vegas area, Nevada State Demographer Jeff Hardcastle said.
    That growth is less the result of new residents moving in than families staying and having children, he added.
    Nevada led the nation in growth for several years before the Great Recession began in late 2007, and data from the U.S. Census shows the state has now bounced back to become the second-fastest growing in 2016, behind only Utah, Hardcastle said.

  • Underground mine rescue competition
    Many underground mines are a long way from town — any town. If emergency help is needed immediately, the only way to access it is to have it on site. Mine rescue teams are required by law at all underground mines. Team members work for the mines in many different capacities and their mine rescue training is on top of whatever skill set they use in their regular mine job.

  • Men can be victims of Domestic Violence
    One in four men will be a victim of domestic violence in the United States. Forty-eight percent of men have dealt with some sort of psychological aggression from a domestic partner. This percent equals that of female victims.
  • Cognitive Plenty versus Cognitive Deprivation
    I recently taught a class referencing Jean Piaget, the Swiss psychologist who delineated stages of cognitive development for children. While some have rejected his findings because he primarily studied his own children as opposed to a wide, random sampling, I find his work of vast interest and importance.
  • Spring Tips for Winter Wheat
    As I drive around the area, I can see that the winter wheat planted last fall has responded well to the above average precipitation received over the winter months. Winter wheat production can be improved and input costs reduced with good knowledge of growth and development. Seeding date, irrigation scheduling, fertilizer, and pest control are more effective if accurately timed to crop development.

At least one benefit of the rising waters in the Humboldt River is that those with the toys can now enjoy some time on the water in town. This is exactly what a few young men did over St. Patrick's Day weekend. With the sun shining and the water levels high a few locals took their jet skis to the river, entertaining themselves and any spectators that happened by.
