 UAFS is a member of the NCAA D II. An outsanding university must have an solid athletic programm. Here we are, the university since becoming a member of the NCAA ( National Collegial Athletic Association) has proven by multiple wins of its conference.  Last night, the volleyball women's team hosted a conference game against St Mary's University.  Students, staff, faculty members came out to support our lady Lions. It was realy fun. More fun with the win of the ladies by 3 sets to nothing. The game was intense, every set was toughly fought, as we know our ladies did not give up. Each home game not matter the sport , is a get together for students , staff and faculty member to cheer our school athlets and show our pride.  The most intersting fact about the volleyball team is that, we have three international student-athlets. They are from Brazil and Serbia. The are outstanding players and students too.  So far the Lady lions are leading the conference and are in a good position to finish strong. They are also better than ever with the experienced coaching staff.
 The  UAFS lady lions are takindg on the TAMUI lady dustdevill tomorrow at noon.
Go lady lions!!!!!

Eating more fruit and vegetables daily may reduce stroke risk significantly

QINGDAO, China, May 9 (UPI) --People who ate the most fruits and vegetables were 21 percent less likely to have a stroke than those who ate the least amounts of produce, according to new research.
Senior author Dr. Yan Qu of the Qingdao Municipal Hospital and professor at the Medical College of Qingdao University in Qingdao, China, and colleagues at the Hiser Medical Center in Qingdao and Department of Epidemiology and Health Statistics at the Medical College of Qingdao University conducted a meta-analysis of 20 studies published over the last 19 years, involving data from 760,629 men and women who had 16,981 strokes.

The study, published in the journal Stroke, found stroke risk decreased by 32 percent for every 200 grams -- or 21 ounces, or about two smallish apples -- of fruit eaten daily and 11 percent with every 200 grams of vegetables eaten daily. Citrus fruit, apples, pears and leafy vegetables might contribute added protection against stroke.

"Improving diet and lifestyle is critical for heart and stroke risk reduction in the general population," Qu said in a statement. "In particular, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is highly recommended because it meets micronutrient and macronutrient and fiber requirements without adding substantially to overall energy requirements."
Stroke is the leading cause of death in China claiming some 1.7 million people in 2010 and the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.

See you later

I am starting to get really sad due to teh fact that I am leaving in three days. However, I know I souldn't be so melancholic, since my experience at UAFS has been one of the greatest of my life. If I am unhappy about leaving, it's because I was very happy living here; and that's something good, that's something I must cherish.

I have many, many memories to rejoice in. They are really varied and I wouldn't be able to choose only one. They go from the most typical American traditions (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Homecoming, Valentine's Day, Fall Festival, Superbowl) to the most international events (Hmong Night, African Night, Thai New Year, Vietnamese Moon Festival, and, of course, iFest). I also tried compeltely new things, such as eating alligator, or feeding llamas in a farm. I went hiking, kayaking, horseriding... I taught classes and I attended several courses. Overall, it was a fantastic year.

But, you know what? Those things, those activities would have meant nothing if I wouldn't have shared them with the lovely people of Fort Smith and the sweet international students that I met along the way. What makes this place worth it, is my friends, my new family. And that's why I know I am not saying goodbye. I am sayingh
