Did you know the first American State Fair was held in Syracuse New York in 1841? This event kicked off the American Tradition of showcasing a states agricultural achievements and economic prowess.

Nine years later, Ohio would hold it’s first State Fair in 1850 in the Cincinnati community of Camp Washington.

Government shutdowns . . . What about them?

January 22, 2019 - 1:41pm -- staubach.9@osu.edu

As of the writing of this blog post (1/14/19) we are 24 days into the partial shutdown of our federal government. This is the longest shutdown in U.S. history. The next closest was 21 days in 1995-1996 under President Bill Clinton. I found myself wondering why shutdowns happen, what circumstances lead to them, when have they happened, and how long have they lasted. And, what impact does this have on people, communities, and the economy?

Two Minutes with Tony: Powerful Passion

September 14, 2018 - 2:51pm -- staubach.9@osu.edu

Failure only comes to those who lack passion and love for the task at hand.

There is no success without passion. There is no love without understanding. There is no power without cooperation. The reality is that the greatest leaders are followers, playing a role in a successful system. The sun will rise tomorrow but, will you be here to enjoy that warmth?

Two Minutes with Tony: Perception

I have always been fascinated with space. I enjoy thinking about how our solar system is like other scientific structures. For example, the earth orbits the sun and the sun orbits the center of our galaxy. And, on the surface this reminds me of the conceptual drawings of electrons circling the nucleus of an atom.
