Louisiana
(Slp: t. 341; Ibp. 99'6 "; b. 28 '; dr. 14'; a. 16 de comprimento
24-pdrs. )

A primeira Louisiana foi construída em New Orleans, Louisiana, em 1812, para serviços mercantis no Mississippi; adquirido pela Marinha em setembro daquele ano, e colocado em serviço imediatamente com a pequena força que defendia Nova Orleans contra a invasão britânica.

Anexado à estação de Nova Orleans, desarmado e não equipado durante os primeiros 2 anos de guerra, Louisiana foi feita a nau capitânia do Comodoro Daniel T. Patterson em agosto de 1814, recebeu suas armas, e junto com a escuna Carolina e um punhado de canhoneiras, preparada para proteja a cidade de um ataque marítimo. O navio mais pesado e armado da pequena flotilha de Patterson, o saveiro servia como bateria flutuante, estacionada ao longo da margem direita do Mississippi para cobrir qualquer possível ataque por terra ou mar.

Em 23 de dezembro, o Exército Britânico estava desembarcando suas forças a apenas 9 milhas abaixo de Nova Orleans, e o Comodoro Patterson ordenou que Louisiana e Carolina navegassem rio abaixo e atacassem, apoiando as tropas do General Jackson reunidas às pressas. Acalmado, o saveiro não conseguiu navegar, mas no dia seguinte juntou-se a Carolina e nos 4 dias seguintes golpeou os britânicos no naufrágio, tornando seu avanço insustentável e dando a Jackson tempo para cavar. Na noite de 27 de dezembro, Carolina foi atingida por fogo inimigo e explodiu, deixando Louisiana a única embarcação naval em Nova Orleans.

Os britânicos avançaram no dia 28, mas a bateria pesada do L Louisiana os forçou a recuar. Embora eles retaliassem com um canhão incessante de 7 horas, o saveiro foi capaz de disparar cerca de 800 tiros contra o inimigo, sofrendo apenas um homem ferido. Descendo rio abaixo em 30 de dezembro, a Louisiana continuou a punir o inimigo com fogo de flanco devastador. Enquanto isso, os canhões do saveiro foram trazidos para terra e colocados em redutos para bombardear o inimigo. Enquanto os ingleses continuavam a pressionar o ataque, a Louisiana apoiou os soldados do general Jackson com fogo preciso até o pôr do sol, 8 de janeiro de 1815, os veteranos britânicos foram desastrosamente derrotados no último ataque e o valioso porto de Nova Orleans permaneceu americano. O General Jackson prestou uma homenagem merecida ao papel fundamental da Marinha nesta grande vitória

Louisiana foi posteriormente desmontada e encerrada em Nova Orleans, e em 1821 foi desmembrada.

St. Louis Park Senior High School Class de 1962

Os Parkettes consistiam em até 40 meninas a cada ano, com idades entre 15 e 17 anos. A cada ano, eram realizados testes para substituir as meninas mais velhas.

Os Parkettes eram uma organização independente, separada da escola secundária. Eles praticavam dentro e ao redor da escola, e em grupos menores, eles se apresentavam como líderes de torcida do colégio.

O programa Parkette era um programa único. Na época em que foi iniciado, havia poucas oportunidades para meninas do ensino médio participarem das atividades. Este programa deu-lhes a oportunidade de desenvolver autoconfiança, disciplina e a capacidade de se apresentarem bem.

Na primavera de 1956, alguém decidiu que uma linha de dança seria uma adição maravilhosa ao espírito do St. Louis Park. Eles abordaram a Sra. Fran Libby com a ideia de ser a coreógrafa do grupo. Seu entusiasmo impulsionou a ideia e, nos 12 anos seguintes, ela foi a líder da linha de dança. Todas as meninas eram da St. Louis Park High School.

Nos primeiros anos, eles dançaram nos jogos de basquete de Park High e depois nos jogos Distritais e Regionais na William Arena. Eles passaram a se apresentar no Aquatennial, no St. Paul Winter Carnival e em muitas outras ocasiões.

Em 1958, eles cumpriram o papel de Lakerettes e se apresentaram nos jogos de basquete do Lake no Arsenal de Minneapolis. Eles se tornaram bem conhecidos e foram convidados a se apresentar nacionalmente na televisão, em convenções, no Rose Bowl e em muitos outros eventos. Em 1964, eles foram convidados a atuar como líderes de torcida nos jogos de futebol Viking. Isso continuou até 1983, quando o gerente da Viking, Mike Lynn, decidiu que queria líderes de torcida mais maduras, como as Dallas Cowgirls.

De 1965 a 1983, os Parkettes foram líderes de torcida dos Vikings. O Echowan de 1965 continha o seguinte comentário sobre os Parkettes: "Aos dezessete vocês, meninas, nunca se dobram os joelhos", disse a sra. Fran Libby, conselheira da Parkette. Com esse estímulo constante e práticas extenuantes, Parkettes atingiu quase a perfeição.

Eles foram convidados pelo Departamento de Correções do Estado de Minnesota para fazerem parte de um grupo que recebia no St. Cloud Reformatory. Percorrer os blocos de celas e ver a gratidão nos rostos dos presos e # 39 angustiados, mas profundamente gratificados.

O que eles experimentaram em St. Cloud foi diferente da alegria que sentiram ao dançar no St. Paul Winter Carnival e da emoção que experimentaram sempre que fizeram uma apresentação televisionada em um jogo do Lakers na NBA. Não tão empolgante quanto a televisão era dançar em um jogo de futebol dos Vikings em temperaturas congelantes, vestindo apenas saias e suéteres. Mas os encantos do megafone de ouro dados às garotas que dançam em todos os jogos mais do que compensaram os dedos dos pés frios e as mãos congeladas.

O destaque do ano para as meninas que dançaram para os Parkettes foram as viagens que fizeram durante as férias de primavera. Os destinos eram variados e incluíam Grécia, Itália, Venezuela, Bahamas, Panamá e Havaí várias vezes. Eles frequentemente se apresentavam para públicos estrangeiros nessas viagens.

As viagens eram pagas com os ganhos dos Parkettes e do Fã-Clube. Os Vikings e Lakers pagaram à organização Parkette por sua aparência e desempenho nos jogos. Os pais da Parkette venderam programas nos jogos Viking por comissões de concessão. As meninas contribuíram com dinheiro em empregos individuais, como babá.

Ser selecionado como membro da Parkettes foi um compromisso que exigiu muito trabalho.

Edição dos primeiros anos

Ruston College, uma precursora da Louisiana Tech, foi fundada em meados de 1880 por W. C. Friley, um pastor batista do sul. Esta instituição durou sete anos e teve inscrições anuais de cerca de 250 alunos. [9] Friley posteriormente, de 1892 a 1894, serviu como o primeiro presidente da Hardin – Simmons University em Abilene, Texas, e de 1909 a 1910, como o segundo presidente do Louisiana College em Pineville.

Em 14 de maio de 1894, o Júri da Polícia Paroquial de Lincoln realizou uma sessão especial para traçar planos para garantir uma escola industrial regional. O júri policial (um órgão semelhante a um tribunal de condado ou comissão de condado em outros estados) pediu ao Representante Estadual George M. Lomax para apresentar a legislação proposta durante a próxima sessão. O representante Lomax, o representante da paróquia de Jackson J. T. M. Hancock e o jornalista, advogado e futuro juiz John B. Holstead lutaram pela aprovação do projeto de lei. Em 6 de julho de 1894, o projeto de lei proposto foi aprovado como Lei nº 68 da Assembleia Geral da Louisiana. [8] A lei estabeleceu o "Instituto Industrial e o Colégio da Louisiana", um instituto industrial criado para a educação de crianças brancas nas artes e nas ciências. [8]

Em 1894, o coronel Arthur T. Prescott foi eleito o primeiro presidente do colégio. Ele se mudou para Ruston e começou a supervisionar a construção de um prédio principal de dois andares. O prédio de tijolos abrigava oito grandes salas de aula, um auditório, um laboratório químico e dois escritórios. Um edifício de estrutura também foi construído nas proximidades e foi usado para o ensino de mecânicos. O prédio principal estava localizado em um terreno de 20 acres (81.000 m 2) que foi doado à escola por Francis P. Stubbs. Em 23 de setembro de 1895, a escola iniciou sua primeira sessão com seis professores e 202 alunos.

Em maio de 1897, Harry Howard se tornou o primeiro graduado. O coronel Prescott concedeu-lhe o diploma de bacharel em indústria, mas não houve início formal. A primeira cerimônia formal foi realizada na Ruston Opera House no mês de maio seguinte, com dez graduados recebendo seus diplomas.

O artigo 256 da constituição estadual de 1898 mudou o nome da escola para Louisiana Industrial Institute. [10] Dois anos depois, o curso de estudos foi reorganizado em dois anos de trabalho preparatório e três anos de cursos de nível universitário. Os alunos que concluíram o ensino médio foram admitidos no sétimo trimestre (nível universitário) do estudo sem exame. Com o passar dos anos, os cursos mudaram e os requisitos de admissão tornaram-se mais rígidos. De 1917 a 1925, vários currículos foram organizados de acordo com os padrões da faculdade júnior e foram oferecidos levando ao grau de Bacharel em Indústria. Em 1919, o Conselho de Curadores ampliou o currículo e começou a conceder um diploma de bacharelado padrão. A primeira delas foi concedida em 15 de junho de 1921, o Bacharelado em Engenharia.

A Constituição, adotada em 18 de junho de 1921, mudou o nome da escola no Artigo XII, Seção 9, de Louisiana Industrial Institute para Louisiana Polytechnic Institute, [11] ou simplesmente "Louisiana Tech".

Edição de expansão

O edifício principal, também conhecido como Old Main, queimou totalmente em 1936, mas as colunas que marcavam a entrada permanecem no lugar atrás da Biblioteca Memorial Prescott. Em junho de 1936, a construção de um novo prédio administrativo havia começado. Após a conclusão em janeiro de 1937, foi nomeado Leche Hall em homenagem ao então governador Richard W. Leche, de Nova Orleans. O prédio foi renomeado após a morte do ex-presidente da universidade, J.E. Keeny, e continua sendo o remodelado Keeny Hall.

O Instituto Politécnico da Louisiana experimentou um surto de crescimento da infraestrutura em 1939 e 1940. Sete edifícios foram projetados pelo arquiteto Edward F. Neild e concluídos a um custo de $ 2.054.270. Eram Aswell Hall (dormitório feminino), Robinson Hall (dormitório masculino para juniores e idosos), Tolliver Hall (refeitório com 880 lugares), Bogard Hall (o edifício da engenharia), o S.J. Wages Power Plant, Reese Agricultural Hall (localizado na South Campus Tech Farm) e o Howard Auditorium & amp Fine Arts Building. [12]

Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, o Louisiana Polytechnic Institute foi uma das 131 faculdades e universidades em todo o país que participaram do Programa de Treinamento do V-12 Navy College, que oferecia aos alunos um caminho para uma comissão da Marinha. [13]

Em 1959, quatro alunos conquistaram os primeiros mestrados da instituição.

Era da Universidade Editar

Em 1962, Foster Jay Taylor tornou-se o 12º presidente do Louisiana Polytechnic Institute, tendo sucedido Ralph L. Ropp. Durante seus 25 anos como presidente, o Dr. Taylor supervisionou a transformação do antigo Instituto Politécnico da Louisiana na Louisiana Tech University. As matrículas da universidade aumentaram de cerca de 3.000 alunos em 1962 para cerca de 12.000 alunos em 1987. Os primeiros alunos afro-americanos na Louisiana Tech, James Earl Potts (um aluno transferido da vizinha HBCU Grambling State University) e Bertha Bradford-Robinson, foram admitidos na primavera de 1965. [15]

A maioria dos edifícios modernos no campus principal foram construídos ou reformados durante o mandato de Taylor como presidente da universidade. As principais instalações esportivas foram construídas durante a Era Taylor, incluindo o Joe Aillet Stadium, o Thomas Assembly Center, o J.C. Love Field e o Lady Techster Softball Complex. Além das instalações esportivas, a Wyly Tower de 16 andares, a Student Bookstore, o Nethken Hall (prédio de Engenharia Elétrica), a University President's House e o atual College of Business Building foram construídos no campus principal. A fim de abrigar o crescente corpo discente da Louisiana Tech, o Dr. Taylor liderou a construção dos dormitórios residenciais de Graham, Harper, Kidd, Caruthers e Neilson.

O tempo de Taylor como presidente da Louisiana Tech também marcou o início do atletismo Lady Techster. Em 1974, Taylor estabeleceu o programa de basquete feminino Lady Techsters com uma dotação de US $ 5.000. Ele contratou Sonja Hogg, uma instrutora de educação física de 28 anos na Ruston High School, como a primeira treinadora principal das Lady Techsters. Sob o comando do treinador Hogg e seu sucessor Leon Barmore, os Lady Techsters venceram três campeonatos nacionais durante a década de 1980. [16] Em 1980, o Dr. Taylor fundou a equipe Lady Techster Softball com Barry Canterbury servindo como o primeiro treinador principal da equipe. A equipe fez sete times consecutivos para o Torneio de Softball da NCAA e três viagens para o Women's College World Series durante os anos 1980.

O primeiro doutorado foi concedido em 1971, um Ph.D. em engenharia química.

Em 1992, Louisiana Tech tornou-se uma universidade de "admissões seletivas". Esta universidade aumentou seus critérios de admissão quatro vezes desde 2000, elevando a média de pontuação geral mínima, a pontuação ACT composta e a classificação da classe.

Louisiana Tech ganhou o reconhecimento do Conselho de Regentes da Louisiana por sua taxa de graduação e taxa de retenção. De acordo com um relatório do Conselho de Regentes da Louisiana publicado em dezembro de 2011, a Louisiana Tech tem a segunda maior taxa de graduação entre as quatorze universidades públicas do estado da Louisiana. A taxa de graduação de 53,3% em 6 anos é a mais alta do Sistema da Universidade de Louisiana. [17] Louisiana Tech tem uma taxa de retenção de 78,64% entre os calouros entrantes que permanecem na mesma escola após o primeiro ano, a taxa mais alta no Sistema da Universidade de Louisiana. [18] A proporção média de tempo para obtenção do diploma para graduados da Tech é de 4,7 anos, a mais rápida do Sistema UL. [19]

Louisiana Tech se tornou a primeira no mundo a conferir um diploma de bacharel em engenharia de nanossistemas quando Josh Brown se formou em maio de 2007. [20] Continuando sua missão como pioneira em engenharia, a Louisiana Tech também lançou o primeiro diploma de bacharelado em engenharia cibernética do país em 2012.

Em maio de 2017 [atualização], Louisiana Tech concedeu mais de 100.900 graus. [21]

O campus da Louisiana Tech University está localizado em Ruston, Louisiana. As principais estradas que fazem fronteira ou cruzam com o campus da Tech são Tech Drive, California Avenue, Alabama Avenue e Railroad Avenue. As rodovias interestadual 20 e US 80 e 167 estão localizadas a 1,6 km do campus principal. Além disso, um conjunto de trilhos operados pela Kansas City Southern Railway corta o campus perto da Railroad Avenue.

A parte do Campus Principal localizada a oeste de Tech Drive e ao norte da ferrovia inclui todas as principais instalações esportivas da universidade, exceto o J.C. Love Field. As terras a leste de Tech Drive e ao norte da ferrovia incluem o Lambright Intramural Center, J.C. Love Field e os University Park Apartments. A maioria dos conjuntos residenciais mais antigos está localizada perto da California Avenue e ao longo da Tech Drive ao sul dos trilhos da ferrovia. A parte mais antiga do Campus Principal está localizada ao sul da Railroad Avenue. O Enterprise Campus está localizado em um terreno de 50 acres (200.000 m 2) a leste da Homer Street e na fronteira com a parte mais antiga do Campus Principal.

Além do Campus Principal, Louisiana Tech também tem 474 acres (1,92 km 2) de terreno localizado no Campus Sul, 167 acres (0,68 km 2) de terras agrícolas a oeste do Campus Principal, 603 acres (2,44 km 2) de terreno florestal em Winn, Natchitoches e Union Parishes, 30 acres (120.000 m 2) de terreno em Shreveport, um campo de golfe de 44 acres (180.000 m 2) em Lincoln Parish, 14 acres (57.000 m 2) de terreno para um arboreto a oeste do Campus Principal e um Centro de Operações de Voo no Aeroporto Regional de Ruston. [22]

Editar campus principal

O Campus Principal da Louisiana Tech University originou-se em 1894 como um terreno de 20 acres (81.000 m 2) com apenas dois edifícios, o Antigo Prédio Principal e um prédio próximo usado pelo Departamento de Mecânica (o precursor do Colégio de Engenharia e Ciência). Hoje, o Campus Principal ocupa um terreno de 280 acres (1,1 km 2) com 86 prédios, incluindo 22 prédios de apartamentos para os University Park Apartments na parte norte do campus. [22] Muitos dos edifícios, especialmente os edifícios mais antigos, no Campus Principal são construídos no estilo Revival Colonial. [23] Bogard Hall, Howard Auditorium, Keeny Hall, University Hall (anteriormente a Biblioteca Prescott original), Reese Hall, Robinson Hall e Tolliver Hall estão todos incluídos no Registro Nacional de Lugares Históricos. [24]

O edifício mais antigo existente no campus da Louisiana Tech é o Ropp Center. A casa de madeira de estilo italiano foi construída em 1911 e leva o nome de Ralph L. Ropp, presidente da Louisiana Tech de 1949 a 1962. O Ropp Center serviu como residência de sete presidentes de tecnologia da Louisiana até a casa de um novo presidente ser construída em 1972 no lado oeste do campus da Tech. O Ropp Center foi usado pela Faculdade de Economia Doméstica por treze anos, até que o Escritório de Programas Especiais se mudou para o prédio em 1985. Em 2002, uma reforma de $ 1 milhão foi concluída para transformar o Ropp Center em um clube de professores e funcionários que é usado para eventos especiais e hospedagem para convidados no campus. [25]

O Quadrangle (o Quad) é o ponto focal da parte mais antiga do Campus Principal. O Quad é considerado um dos locais mais belos e pacíficos da Louisiana Tech. [26] Grandes carvalhos e bancos de parque ao redor do Quad proporcionam aos alunos e visitantes um lugar tranquilo para estudar e relaxar. No centro do Quad está a escultura e fonte de The Lady of the Mist, um marco para alunos e ex-alunos. Os prédios ao redor do Quad são Keeny Hall, Howard Auditorium, o Student Center, a Livraria, a Wyly Tower of Learning, a atual Prescott Memorial Library e a Prescott Library original, agora conhecida como University Hall.

Outro local popular no Campus Principal é a Centennial Plaza. Em 1994, o Centennial Plaza foi construído para comemorar o 100º aniversário da fundação da Louisiana Tech. A praça foi financiada por uma taxa de autoavaliação do aluno e projetada especificamente para o uso e aproveitamento do corpo discente. Centennial Plaza é usado para eventos especiais ao longo do ano, como Christmas in the Plaza, eventos de cinema e feiras de organização de estudantes. A Centennial Plaza é um dos principais pontos de encontro dos estudantes devido à proximidade da praça com os restaurantes do campus, cafeterias, refeitórios, correios da universidade e escritórios da Student Life, SGA e Union Board. No centro da praça está a Torre do Relógio, que tem som e recursos digitais para tocar Alma Mater, Fight Song e quaisquer outras músicas e chamadas conforme necessário. A Alumni Brick Walkway passa pela Centennial Plaza e ao redor da Torre do Relógio. [27] Um grande selo da Louisiana Tech marca o meio da Centennial Plaza, a oeste da Torre do Relógio. A Centennial Plaza é cercada pelo Tolliver Hall, o Student Center, o Howard Auditorium e o Harper Residence Hall.

Louisiana Tech tem dois refeitórios principais em Wisteria Drive, no extremo oeste da Centennial Plaza. O primeiro refeitório é o Student Center, que abriga o refeitório, um refeitório menor para comer e se socializar, o La Tech Cafe, vários pequenos restaurantes, incluindo o Chick-fil-A e o Tonk. O Student Center também abriga o CEnIT Innovation Lab, várias grandes áreas de estudo e uma sala de conferências. Uma das três estátuas de buldogue de bronze está localizada no primeiro andar do Centro Estudantil próximo à entrada do Tonk. Os alunos acariciam a estátua do buldogue para dar sorte enquanto caminham ao lado da estátua.

O segundo centro estudantil no campus de tecnologia é o Tolliver Hall. O Tolliver Hall, que recebeu o nome da primeira nutricionista em tempo integral da Tech, Irene Tolliver, está localizado no extremo oeste da Centennial Plaza, próximo ao Wisteria Student Center. Este prédio de dois andares foi construído na década de 1920 como um dos três refeitórios da Louisiana Tech. A área de alimentação no segundo andar permaneceu aberta até ser fechada na década de 1980. Em 2003, quase US $ 3 milhões foram gastos para transformar o Tolliver Hall em um moderno centro cibernético de estudantes. O segundo andar agora abriga um cyber café que inclui estações de computador, um restaurante McAlister's Deli, vários restaurantes menores, uma grande sala de jantar com televisões de tela grande e mesas menores em volta do chão para jantar e estudar. Os escritórios da Louisiana Tech Student Government Association, do Union Board, do International Student Office e de assuntos multiculturais também estão localizados no segundo andar. O primeiro andar é usado como correio para os alunos, professores e funcionários administrativos da Tech. [28]

Na última década, a Louisiana Tech construiu novos edifícios e renovou alguns dos edifícios mais antigos do Campus Principal. A universidade ergueu o Davison Hall (casa do programa de Aviação Profissional da universidade), o Edifício de Micromanufatura e o Edifício de Engenharia Biomédica na extremidade sul do Campus Principal ao longo da Hergot Avenue. A tecnologia demoliu o antigo Hale Hall e construiu um novo Hale Hall no estilo e design do antecessor em 2004. [29] Na extremidade leste do campus, a universidade renovou o edifício agora conhecido como University Hall, redesenhou o interior da livraria e fez os reparos necessários no Keeny Hall e no Howard Auditorium. Todas as principais instalações de atletismo na parte norte do Campus Principal receberam grandes atualizações e renovações nos últimos cinco anos.

A construção começou no início de 2011 em um novo prédio da Faculdade de Negócios. A instalação de 42.000 pés quadrados (3.900 m 2) serve como a peça central dos programas de empreendedorismo e negócios do College of Business. O prédio possui novas salas de aula, dois auditórios, laboratórios de informática, centros de pesquisa, salas de reuniões e centros de apoio a carreiras e estudantes. [30] A Louisiana Tech anunciou planos para construir um novo edifício da Faculdade de Engenharia e Ciências de 60.000 pés quadrados (5.600 m 2) adjacente ao Bogard Hall.

O campus também hospeda o Idea Place, [31] um museu de ciências AE Phillips Lab School, uma escola K-8 que é reconhecida como uma "Escola Cinco Estrelas" pelo Departamento de Educação de Louisiana [32] e pelo Joe D. Waggonner Center para Política e Políticas Públicas Bipartidárias. [33]

Editar Campus Sul

O South Campus está localizado a sudoeste do campus principal em Ruston e cobre quase 900 acres (364 ha). É o lar da Escola de Ciências Agrárias e Florestais, Centro de Desenvolvimento Rural, Centro Equino, Jardim Hortícola John D. Griffin e Fazenda Tecnológica. A Tech Farm Salesroom comercializa ao público laticínios, carnes e produtos vegetais produzidos e processados ​​pela Tech Farm. Os alunos matriculados em programas de agricultura ou silvicultura assistem às aulas em Reese Hall, o laboratório agrícola, e em Lomax Hall, o complexo de silvicultura e ciência de plantas que abriga as Estufas Tecnológicas da Louisiana, o Conservatório de Horticultura e o Laboratório de Dados Espaciais.

Edição Enterprise Campus

No segundo trimestre de 2009, a universidade inaugurou o novo Enterprise Campus, que expandirá o campus em 50 acres (20 ha) após a conclusão. O Enterprise Campus será um projeto de construção verde e um centro de pesquisa disponível para empresas e negócios de tecnologia. O campus Enterprise também tentará estabelecer uma ponte entre as faculdades de Engenharia e Negócios com a adição do Centro de Empreendedorismo e Inovação (EIC). [34]

Em 2010, a Louisiana Tech concluiu as reformas do antigo Edifício de Artes Visuais, transformando-o no novo Centro de Empreendedorismo e Inovação (E & ampI). O Centro de E & ampI servirá como o hub central para os programas do Centro de Empreendedorismo e Tecnologia da Informação (CEnIT) e está localizado entre o edifício College of Business e Bogard Hall (COES).

A Louisiana Tech inaugurou a Tech Pointe, o primeiro edifício no Enterprise Campus, em 2010. A Tech Pointe abrigará o Cyberspace Research Laboratory, bem como empresas de alta tecnologia e empresas de tecnologia start-up. A instalação de 42.000 pés quadrados (3.900 m 2) incluirá acesso à Louisiana Optical Network Initiative (LONI), redes de fibra óptica e de Internet, recursos de computação avançados e outros suportes de tecnologia da informação necessários para atender às demandas de 24/7 empresas de alta tecnologia e pesquisas especializadas em segurança cibernética. A conclusão da Tech Pointe está prevista para 2011.

A universidade revelou recentemente planos para construir um novo prédio da Faculdade de Engenharia e Ciências (COES). O prédio de três andares e 127.000 [35] pés quadrados (11.800 m 2) fornecerá novos laboratórios de aprendizagem ativos, oficinas de engenharia e salas de reunião para aulas de matemática, ciências e engenharia.

Lady of the Mist Edit

The Lady of the Mist is one of the most recognizable landmarks on the Louisiana Tech Main Campus. The granite sculpture sits in the midst of a fountain in the middle of the quadrangle (The Quad), one of the focal points of the university and part of the older section of the Main Campus. [22] The Lady of the Mist symbolizes "Alma Mater" welcoming new students and bidding farewell to Tech graduates. The statue also symbolizes the hope that Louisiana Tech graduates will fulfill their ambitions and highest callings in life.

The statue and fountain was funded in 1938 by the Women's Panhellenic Association of Ruston, the governing body of the university's sorority groups. The Lady of the Mist was the idea of Art & Architecture faculty member Mary Moffett and Art Department Chair Elizabeth Bethea. [104] The Lady of the Mist was created by Duncan Ferguson and Jules Struppeck and specifically located in the middle of the Quad facing north toward the old north entrance columns of the Tech campus. This was done to welcome everyone to the campus as people looked through the north entrance columns to see the statue's open arms waiting to greet them.

The Lady fell into disrepair in the years after its construction. In 1985, the statue was restored through the efforts of the Student Government Association, Panhellenic, Residence Hall Association, and Association of Women Students. Today, the statue remains a focal point for students and alumni who return to the Tech campus. Incoming freshman commemorate their new beginning by tossing a gold medallion into the fountain. [105]

The alumni walkway was constructed in 1995 as part of the centennial celebration at Louisiana Tech. The brick path stretches from the corner of Adams Boulevard and Dan Reneau Drive through the heart of Centennial Plaza to the footsteps of Tolliver Hall. The alumni brick walkway then follows Wisteria Street north toward Railroad Avenue. The plan is to extend the alumni brick walkway through the University Park student housing apartments that were built near J.C. Love Field. [106] As of May 2011 [update] , the walkway contained 72,000 engraved bricks representing all Louisiana Tech graduates from 1897 up to the year 2000. [22]

Teaching WWII history, Holocaust may be required in Louisiana schools

Over 6,000,000 Jewish people were killed during the Holocaust. USA TODAY

BATON ROUGE — A bill that would mandate the instruction of World War II and the Holocaust to high school students passed 65-32 in the House Monday. It would include training for teachers instructing students on such history.

“By teaching students about World War II, they become stronger in their ability as a society to resist efforts to marginalize and demonize vulnerable groups of people,” said the bill’s author, Rep. Valarie Hodges, R-Denham Springs.

Rep. Valarie Hodges, R-Denham Springs, said that it is the legislators and the educator’s responsibility to share the stories of the Holocaust because survivors will soon no longer be around to share themselves. (Photo: Sarah Gamard)

The bill, House Bill 416, would call on schools across the state to partner with the National WWII Museum in New Orleans to teach the curriculum.

Rep. Hodges said that it is the legislators and the educator’s responsibility to share the stories of the Holocaust because survivors will soon no longer be around to share themselves.

There was opposition to the bill from the Louisiana Board of Secondary Education (BESE). A commission is reviewing state social studies standards that will make a recommendation to BESE for new standards in October.

Hodges explained that her bill is timely because waiting for the review commission to create new standards would be too late. Once new standards are created, they are in place for the next seven years.

Rep. Beryl Amedee, R-Houma, said she had heard from opponents who think that all curriculum standards decisions should be made by BESE, not the Legislature. Hodges responded that the Legislature has mandated curriculum 37 different times in the past.

Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge, brought an amendment to the bill to mandate the teaching of significant Black historical figures. The amendment failed, but it created robust debate by House members on what should and should not be mandated in Louisiana public schools.

“We all have passions on what we think should be taught,” said Rep. Royce Duplessis, D-New Orleans. He said that last year he brought a resolution to recommend that schools teach the history of racism, and he agreed with James’ amendment since that “question is not being asked.”

The House debate followed controversy about a bill by former House Education Committee Chairman Rep. Raymond Garofalo’s, R-Chalmette, that would have prohibited any teaching that the United States or Louisiana is systematically racist or sexist.

The bill was shelved after protests by members of the Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus, and Garofalo was eventually stripped of the committee chairmanship by GOP leaders.

“I hope this is not the message that we start today of coming up with our own standards on what we want taught,” said Rep. Tammy Phelps, D-Shreveport. “If all of us next session come up with things we want to do besides allowing BESE to do, I want us to remember this day.”

Hodges is also the author of House Bill 352, which would require the teaching of the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Federalist Papers, the Gettysburg Address and the concepts of national sovereignty, American exceptionalism, globalism and immigration policy.

The bill, House Bill 352, was supposed to be debated on the House floor on Monday as well, but Hodges returned it to the calendar.

Rep. Hodges closed on her bill thanking the House members for a dignified debate, and the bill will now be heard in the Senate.


Louisiana Slp - History

Neuromuscular Features Affecting Speech
Strength
Speed
Faixa
Steadiness
Tone
Accuracy

Confirmatory signs
Signs other than the deviant speech characteristics and
features of speech muscles during speech that can help
confirm a speech diagnosis

Can be found in speech or nonspeech muscles

Examples of confirmatory signs within the speech system
Atrophy
Fasciculations
Emotional lability
Reduced reflexes
Presence of pathologic reflexes
Strength of cough and coup de glotte

Examples of confirmatory signs in nonspeech motor system
Gait disturbances
Abnormal muscle stretch reflexes
Limb atrophy and fasciculations
Loss of automatic movements
Difficulty initiating limb movements
Abnormalities of strength speed, accuracy, tone, steadiness and ROM
at rest or during nonspeech tasks

Assessment Process
História
Assessment of nonspeech function
Perceptual analysis of speech
Intelligibility assessment
Acoustic and physiologic analyses

PROTOCOL FOR EXAMINATION OF MOTOR SPEECH DISORDERS

1. History
* facts about onset and course
* associated deficits
* patient's awareness of the symptoms/perception of the deficit
* degree of disability or handicap caused by the problem i.e.
consequences of the problem
* what kinds of things have been tried to manage the problems
* suggestions of questions pp.68-69
2. Assessment of nonspeech function

A. cranial nerve/oral mechanism exam e.g. Dworkin-Culatta Oral Mechanism Examination
or other commercial or non-commercial format

3. Perceptual analysis of speech
A. gather the following speech samples audio and/or video tape for analysis a
* vowel prolongation
* alternating motion rates (AMR) and sequential motion rates (SMR)
using speech syllables and or words such as "puppy" "buttercup"
* standard reading passage
* narrative about pictured scene
* conversation sample
* stress test (counting for 2-4 minutes)
* complex multisyllabic words and sentences
* repeat days of week, months, CVC syllables with identical initial
and final consonants, sing familiar tune

B. identify and rate deviant speech characteristics (pg 82 text)

4. Intelligibility assessment
rate intelligibility using one of following scales
* Assessment of Intelligibility of Dysarthric Speech
* Frenchay Dysarthria Assessment
* Word Intelligibility Test (Kent et. al, 1989)
* Tikofsky Test of Intelligibility
* Situational Intelligibility Survey (Berry and Sanders, 1983)

5. Acoustic and Physiologic Measures

* Perceptually based clinical assessment will probably always be
most important component of clinical diagnosis
* As expense of instrumentation decreases, many acoustic and physiologic measures
that have been used extensively in research have potential value for clinical diagnosis
(and management - but we will deal with this later)
* Lack of instrumental use clinically may also reflect a lack of knowledge on the part
of current clinicians - "phobias" about using instrumentation - or lack of clearly demonstrated
clinical value

Examples of instrumental measures relevant to motor speech evaluations
Magnitude and timing of F2 movements
F2 slope
Diadochokinetic rate - average rate, variation of rate, intensity variations during repetitions
VOT
Pitch and intensity magnitude and variations during speech and sustained vowels
Measures of nasal resonance (Nasometer)


Assessment and Evaluation of Speech-Language Disorders in Schools

This is a guide to ASHA documents and references to consider when conducting comprehensive speech-language assessments. Speech-language assessment is a complex process. Assessing, describing, and interpreting an individual's communication ability requires the integration of a variety of information gathered in the evaluation process. ASHA's Preferred Practice Patterns for the Professions of Speech-Language Pathology (2004) indicates that comprehensive speech-language pathology assessment includes these components:

  • Case history, including medical status, education, socioeconomic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds and information from teachers and other related service providers
  • Patient/client/student and family interview
  • Review of auditory, visual, motor, and cognitive status
  • Standardized and/or non-standardized measures of specific aspects of speech, spoken and non-spoken language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing function, including observations and analysis of work samples
  • Identification of potential for effective intervention strategies and compensations
  • Selection of standardized measures for speech, language, cognitive-communication, and/or swallowing assessment with consideration for documented ecological validity and cultural sensitivity
  • Follow-up services to monitor communication and swallowing status and ensure appropriate intervention and support for individuals with identified speech, language, cognitive-communication, and/or swallowing disorders

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, 2004) has specific provisions concerning the assessment of students (Sections 300.301-300.305) in schools. In addition, SLPs need to follow state and local requirements for the assessments of students.

It is important to note the distinctions between the terms evaluation e assessment according to IDEA Part C Guidelines. Evaluation means the "procedures used by qualified personnel to determine a child's initial and continuing eligibility. " IDEA (2004), Part B requires that an evaluation be comprehensive and assess all areas of suspected disability. It is important for the clinician to involve other assessment staff as part of the multidisciplinary evaluation team to address educational and/or behavioral concerns for students who are not meeting the grade-level expectations (IDEA, 2004, Section 34 CFR 300.304).

Assessment means "the ongoing procedures used by qualified personnel to identify the child's unique strengths and needs and the early intervention services appropriate to meet those needs throughout the period of the child's eligibility. and includes the assessment of the child. and the assessment of the child's family. " (IDEA, Part C, Section 303.321)
