The WADA Ruling on Russian Doping and the Lasting Legacy of Rocky IV
I was asked by the Notre Dame media folks to write up an OpEd on the recent World Anti-Doping Agency ruling against Russia. The Hill picked it up, and here it is, complete with a Rocky IV reference right off the bat. This likely won’t be a popular opinion, but I think it is a good conversation starter about the current sports culture both nationally and globally. It also hits on how much popular media shapes our views.
Evolution of Human Diet Class Activity
I put together this fun in-class activity to explore some of concepts on the evolution of the human diet. Students had a lot of fun with this one, and it was relaxed and fun class, which students needed at the end of the semester.

When: Tuesday, December 10 @ 6pm
Where: Ironhand Vineyard’s Wine Bar
1025 Northside Blvd.

Come see how many Star Wars Hoth-related references I can make in under 45 minutes.
