As we go further into the fall semester here at Idaho State University, it is safe to say that many students are beginning to feel the stress that comes with college. With school work, jobs, and personal issues, it is no surprise that students would be feeling overwhelmed with the responsibilities that take precedence over their lives while in college.

Stress is something we all experience, yet it can be a huge roadblock from being able to live healthy and productive lives. However, despite stress being inevitable, it definitely is manageable.

Fire season has begun here in Idaho, which has impacted those who are unfortunate enough to be close to the fires. To those of us in the Pocatello area, fires have sprung up all around us, surrounding us in thick smoke and the prominent odor left from the fires. 

The fires surrounding Pocatello, and parts of the Eastern side of the state, have caused mayhem on the land of the affected areas. Despite no injuries or damage to buildings being reported amidst the burning so far, damage to the land as well as traffic delays have been the biggest impacts we have seen yet.

The Games We Play: A Look at Why We Play Games.

This is CEWT’s third post and second blog post in our Games Series. Our last blog post focused on the history of games. This week’s blog will focus on the ‘why’ of playing games. But first, I want to give our readers a bit of context on our ‘why’. Why is a continuing education and workforce training program writing about games? This answer is simple…and maybe a bit complicated. 

The simple part is much easier to explain so let's start there. We are writing about games because of the people who work here, and because it does relate to our work but we’ll visit that later on in this article. For now, let’s focus on CEWT’s employees.

Games anyone? A Look at the Past, Present, and Future of Games.

Games have been around for over a millennium. This issue of the CEWT blog will focus on the evolution of games.

The oldest playable board game in the world, The Royal Game of Ur, dates back 4,600 years. Its gameplay rules were found written on a cuneiform tablet (dating to 177 BC) and deciphered by curator Irving Finkel. While The Royal Game of Ur is the oldest playable board game known to man, it is not the oldest game in existence. The gameplay rules of many ancient games are lost to history. We know the games exist, we just don’t know how to play them. Senet, a game dating back to 3,100 B.C is one of the earliest known games1. A favorite of King Tut and Queen Nefertari, Senet rules do exist for modern play, but the rules are reconstructed and many variations exist2. It should be noted that royalty’s love of games was not limited to the Egyptians.

The Art of Selling

Isaac Dayley on Jul 18, 2022 9:37:00 AM

The first documented use of the word ‘selling’ was “Snake Oil Selling” in 1790, a phrase which refers to the practice of fraudulent selling, or selling goods other than advertised. So even from the beginning, selling as a profession has been seen as inherently dishonest and deceptive.
