An analog audio setup brings with it nostalgia. Pulling the vinyl out of its sleeve, being careful not to touch the grooves, gently cleaning dust off its surface, setting it on the turntable and placing the needle on its edge, then adjusting the levels until the sound is crisp, deep, and crystal clear-- all of this culminates an experience that is long-lost in an age that prefers convenient over complicated.

There is a lot that could be said about the 2010’s. Above all else, though, this decade has shown the way technology has become so inter-woven in our society that it is near impossible to separate the two.

From the social media apps we frequent, to how we work or pay for food or communicate with one another, technology has made our lives far more convenient. Ten years ago, did anyone think that you could walk into a store, grab anything you want, tuck it in your bag, then leave without having to stop to pay, and do it completely ethically and legally? (Well, okay, Amazon might have, considering they did just that with Amazon Go in 2018.)

Before the majority of households could obtain household consoles, gaming meant going down to the local pizza parlor with friends and playing a handful of different games, or planting yourself down at a specific cabinet to get your name on the high score screen.

November 11-17th is National Apprenticeship Week, and Continuing Education and Workforce Training would like to take the time to appreciate the fantastic apprentices in our program. Thank you, apprentices, for all of your hard work and dedication!

There has been a boom of women working in the construction industries, with the amount of women in the trades being the highest it has been in 20 years (Hegewisch, 2019).

Though progress has been made, there is still a large gap between men and women in the trades. While more women were entering these fields, still fewer than 1 in 20 (or 3.4%) laborers are women (Hegewisch, 2019).
