ISHPEMING — With colder weather fast approaching it’s important to know that anyone and everyone can suffer from aches and pains and especially the winter blues. Cold weather can induce symptoms much like that of depression, a name for it, seasonal affective disorder, which can affect anyone at any age. To combat symptoms it is important to stay active, stay social, and know the signs that something isn’t right. “Well, the lack of light means limited hours to do what we like, the cold drives us indoors, and the fewer hours in sunlight means reduced serotonin levels. So that results in feeling depressed many days, lack of motivation, not enjoying things you used to do, a change in weight and sleeping patterns either increased or decreased, lack of concentration, indecisiveness, in some cases even thinking about death.” To learn more about this illness and symptoms please seek professional services from a local therapist or counselor and be aware of signs.The post What to do when the Winter Blues strike you appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.

|Phil Niemisto Pocket Park’s new additionABC 10 / 3 d. 2 h. 19 min. ago more|
MARQUETTE — Phil Niemisto’s image will live on in downtown Marquette. A statue of the downtown Marquette icon was unveiled today in the pocket park named after him. A crowd gathered on the West Washington Street park to watch artist Earl Senchuk reveal the life-like recreation of Phil that took him three months to complete. “It was like there was no procrastination at all. It was literally get up in the morning and work until 7, 8 o’clock every night. I had to do it without Phil being there because I couldn’t have him there all the time, so he would come over and fall asleep,” said Senchuck. The statue is made from steel, foam, mesh, concrete and polygem epoxy. The Marquette Downtown Development Authority thinks the statue is an important work of art for the community. “I think it’s a fun project and I think people should be excited about it. I really believe this is a gift from the community to the community,” said Executive Director of the Marquette Downtown Development Authority Mona Lang. The community raised almost $14,000 for the project. The remaining funds will go to purchasing flowers for the pocket park and paying for future maintenance costs.The post Phil Niemisto Pocket Park’s new addition appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.

|NMU to offer nursing degree onlineABC 10 / 3 d. 9 h. 2 min. ago more|
MARQUETTE — Nursing students pursuing a bachelor’s will no longer have to get up for their 8:00 a.m. class, or any class, for that matter. Instead, they can log on to their computer through NMU’s online RN to BSN program. Students from the U.P. and parts of Lower Michigan will be able to enroll for classes next semester without being required to come on campus. “This group of students are generally working adults who have families so attending traditional face–to–face courses is usually fairly difficult so offering this program online will allow them to complete the coursework at time of day that works well with them so we really think this will be more effective in recruiting students rather than the face–to–face format,” said Katie Menard, Associate Professor at the School of Nursing at NMU. This program will include reduced tuition rates and courses that are paired with applied workplace leadership courses offered through the university.The post NMU to offer nursing degree online appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.
|High school students learn the science of movement from MTUABC 10 / 3 d. 9 h. 14 min. ago more|
CHASSELL — High school students are learning about the movement functions of their bodies this week. Michigan Technological University’s Department of Physiology is visiting Keweenaw-area high schools with a hands on demonstration as part of International Biology Week. No, this is a construction site relay, but an obstacle course. “We designed an activity today for the students. So we wanted to delver an activity where students had to roll up their sleeves, actually build a device, when attached to your body would make it harder to turn,” said Dr. Steven Elmer, physiology professor at MTU. Chassell High School students are testing the limitations of how the human body moves by suiting up with a home made body rig that mimics the effects of wide radius motion. Students participated in a course race while carrying the wooden frame that slows movement and makes it a little more difficult to perform regular functions of the human body, such as turning and changing directions. Professor Elmer and his team have been visiting are high schools to educate students on the subject of body movements and its relationship to physiology, psychology and neuroscience. “You know we, we walk through out the day and about fifty percent of our steps throughout the day involve turning. We know very little about turning, we know a lot about how you walk. Students had to navigate their way through a Slalom race course either with or without this wooden device that made it harder to turn. They compared their times, they graphed their results, and then we applied the results to certainly turning performance and Olympic sports to rehabilitation and even dinosaur evolution,” said Elmer. They also visited Houghton, Dollar Bay, Baraga, Lake Linden and Ontanogon schools.The post High school students learn the science of movement from MTU appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.
