The 11th Annual Chalk Arts Festival took place on Saturday, June 15 at The Gateway, where spectators could come enjoy a stroll through the chalk art gallery. Over 20,000 were in attendance to not only admire chalk drawings but also to support Utah Foster Care. This year’s theme for artists was “Best in the West.” From Toy Story to Looney Tunes to cowboys, the festival showed a variety of interpretations of what the West means to each artist. “The best part of art is being able to have an idea in your head and being able to physically portray it,” said artist Melody Tripp. Tripp and her husband, Trent, spent hours drawing a depiction from a photo of their son in Zion. The contest began on Friday, when many of the artists started working on their chalk art pictures. Some estimated they spent 16 hours or more drawing. Sponsors, donors and volunteers were in attendance to give to Utah Foster Care that helps the lives of over 2,600 foster children. The festival was organized 11 years ago with the intent to raise awareness in the community about foster care. “We were looking for an event that would draw attention to our cause, and we thought about Writers on your mark Writing for one and all The Wasatch Iron Pen Writing Competition is a 24-hour writing contest held annually at the Utah Arts Festival and is open to all ages and levels of writing. Rachael Folland Staff Writer The Wasatch Iron Pen Writing Competition can provide writers with endless opportunities in the field of the literary pen. The SLCC Community Writing Center will host the competition at the Utah Arts Festival beginning on Friday, June 20, 2013. The 24-hour contest is open to all ages and levels of writing in the categories of fiction, non-fiction or poetry. For those who want to take the Ultra Iron Pen Challenge, they can take on all three categories. “I find that this is a great jump start for writers to get their foot in the door. If something wins a prize like this – to put it on a resume when you’re seeking publication – is really helpful,” said SLCC Community Writing Center Director Andrea Malouf. Writers have the opportunity to share their voices and be creative through their pieces. The writers will be given a visual prompt at 6 p.m. on Friday, and then have the next 24 hours to come up with a piece relating to that prompt.

For Salt Lake Community College students, the UAF provides an opportunity to enjoy the first big party of summer in the company of energetic local bands and a chance to experience the beautiful genius of local artists in living color. “The festival has been a jumping-off point for local bands starting their first national tours. The local music is the biggest attraction for college students,” said Teri Mumm, marketing manager for the UAF. “The biggest night for music is Thursday which attracts many young people because it’s the first real outdoor party of the summer.” Thursday marks not only the opening of the festival, but the arrival of some of the most exciting new bands in Utah.

The GLOBE Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 A3 Community chalking continued from A1 holding a race, but everybody does that,” said community manager for Utah Foster Care Deborah Lindner. “Somebody had heard about street painting in California, so I did some research and found it was big out there and so we brought it here.” When the festival had its first year, the organizers of the foundation had to beg artists to participate—and now they have to turn people away, says Lindner. In fact, artists are specially invited to draw at the festival, with some coming from miles away. One such artist is Holly Bailey, who has been completing works of art for 22 years. Since the start of the festival, she has won an award every year except one. This year, she was invited by KSL to be a guest artist and not a contestant. She also raised money in her community to donate to the foundation. “I do murals for a living, so there are a lot of companies I work for [who donated]; friends and family – any local companies that had to do with children [who] I thought might be interested [in donating],” says Bailey. To donate or to be a volunteer for Utah Foster Care call 877-505-5437 or visit the website: www.utahfostercare.org.

The Bay Area vertical dance troupe, BANDALOOP, will make the first of twicedaily festival appearances by entertaining crowds with thrilling performances using the curved facade of The City Library as their stage. Additionally, Thursday’s festivities will have an early bird special of $6 admission before 3 p.m. and $10 afterwards. The festival provides students with more than just a chance to listen to live music as this marks the first year that the UAF will be partnering with the Leonardo to give students and patrons alike an opportunity to explore the museum. “We are partnering with the Leonardo to allow entrance to the museum with paid admission to the festival,” said Mumm. “The Leonardo Used with permission of the Utah Arts Festival; photo by Nicole Morgenthau.

The exhibit recognizes many of the turning points in our history from the use of stone tools to the era of the Internet with an immersive display that incorporates forty high-definition projectors, multi-channel motion graphics and cinema-quality sound. The SLCC Community Writing Center will have a large presence at the festival this year as they host the 11thAnnual Wasatch Iron Pen Competition, a 24-hour writing marathon where budding writers face off against each other in a battle of mental and creative endurance. “The SLCC Writing Center is one of our bigger collaborations this year at the festival. They will be holding workshops dedicated to helping develop writing skills within the community,” said Mumm. films continued from A1 “It’s such a quick turnaround,” said Brian Higgins, city producer for the 48 Hour Film Project in Salt Lake City. “So Friday night, you don’t have a film, and Sunday night you do, and Wednesday you are watching it in the cinema.” All filmmakers get a chance to see their film make it to the big screen before a large audience and they could win a city award: Movie Magic Screenwriter Software 6, and the grand prize of $5,000 at The 48 Hour Film Project will return to Salt Lake City at the end of spring in 2014 for another 48-hour film competition.

You see a lot of first-time filmmakers who can just have the opportunity to make something and guarantee that they’re going to see it on the screen,” said Higgins. “A lot of times in independent film, you go to make something, and it’s going to be five years before it even sees the light of day, even if it ever does get released, but with this, you know you’re guaranteed.” Some challenges faced by teams included a lead actor breaking his ankle during filming and a crew member with heat stroke. One film in particular stood out for the amount of locations in one film. Transjumbled, a science-fiction film by Zobec, used 15 locations. “We (8-bit film’s Dungeons and Spies) filmed at Dragon’s Keep in Provo. Jonathan had actually filmed there for his 24-hour project and so it was really good because he knew the people, and they were really great. Actually, we got ten more extras from the Dragon’s Keep,” said Juliet DeVette, SLCC film student. “We just kept going through the night – Friday and Saturday night.” Photo by James Nguyen Mustafa Oudah from 8-bit films “Dungeons and Spies.” From the Farmers Market to the table Local Brewery Review: Moab Brewery Local goods are fresh and help the economy. The Downtown Famers Market has been meeting this need for 21 years. Kachina Choate Staff Writer The Downtown Salt Lake City Farmers Market has grown from humble roots to fill Pioneer Park every Saturday morning during the summer and fall. No matter if a person wants to buy or sell the farmers market is a way to test out new products and be entertained while you shop. “Our goal is to put on a community event for the community to help these vendors help the local population of Salt Lake City,” said Downtown Alliance communications director Nick Como. Twenty-one years ago, Bob Farrington, former director of the Downtown Alliance, was looking for a way to improve the area around Pioneer Park. He decided that he wanted a farmers market. He drove up and down I-89 stopping at every farm stand he saw asking if they would come to Salt Lake City and set up shop on Saturday mornings in a park in a troubled neighborhood. Many people thought that Farrington was crazy to even try. “It probably took a little crazy to get something like this going, and here we are twenty years later. It’s grown and grown,” said Como. “We were in half the park, now the whole park, and we have everything from art and craft vendors to prepared foods to packaged foods, like breads and hummus, and of course fruits and vegetables which is how we all started and is the nucleus of the farmers market.” Not only is the farmers market a great place to shop— it is an experience. Nestled between vendors are buskers or street performers. At 11:30 a.m. on the music stage, people are treated to popular local bands. “For me, it’s not going there (the farmers market) for the food or prices. It’s just something to do to get out of the house,” said SLCC instructor Andrew Wilson. “It’s more like an activity than actually trying to get bargains on food.” The farmers market has helped entrepreneurs including Rico who started out selling beans at the market and now owns a restaurant and factory. “This is a place where you can test out our product to 10,000 people all at once, and it’s like a big test kitchen,” said Como. With demand for local goods so high, the Downtown Alliance tested out the winter markets this past year. “We are hoping to do a year round public market that’s in a location every day or once a week or something like that throughout the winter months,” said Como. The Moab Brewery has been brewing ales and quenching tourist’s thirst for 17 years, but Salt Lake Community College students don’t need to venture all the way to the home of Utah’s famous arches to get a taste of Moab. Clinton Baker Contributing Writer Moab Brewery rates 3/5 The Moab Brewery specializes in brewing ales and is inspired by the unique environment of the Moab area. Moab Brewery creates refreshing hand crafted ales which pack powerful flavor. The brewery offers many noteworthy beers, from hop-filled IPAs to malty amber ales that taste even better in the middle of the Utah desert. While Moab is home and birthplace of these unique ales, the brews can be found in places throughout Salt Lake City. Moab Brewery offers three of their top selling beers in cans available in supermarkets and gas stations. Moab Brewery’s most popular beer is their Dead Horse Amber Ale. This amber ale gets its name from a scenic overlook in Canyonlands National Park. It packs a strong flavor of malt that overpowers the less noticeable hints of hops. The beer has a medium-light, sweet, crisp feel, which is very refreshing. Dead Horse Amber Ale is a beer that provides plenty of flavors, yet its most noteworthy attribute is the drinkability. Ale purists might be disappointed by the thinner feel of this particular brew, but thanks to the low alcohol content and the amber color, Dead Horse Amber Ale is great for summer sessions, especially in the scorching desert of Moab. One of the newer beers produced out of Moab’s hot desert is Johnny’s American IPA. It is a unique and flavorful beer that satisfies beer-enthusiasts’ demands for a hoppy brew. While delivering on the expected dominant flavor and aroma of hops, this India pale ale has an unusually low percentage of alcohol. Coming in at 4% ABV, making a flavorful IPA to meet Utah’s state liquor laws was a tall order, but Moab Brewery delivered. With an overpowering taste of hops and subtle hint of fruit, this beer is suited for seasoned beer drinkers with a love for hops and might be slightly overwhelming for those new to craft beers. Despite the strong flavor of hops, the lower amount of alcohol makes this beer more drinkable than some IPAs and would be a good beer to try for a first IPA. One of the most distinguished aspects of this beer is its appearance in a glass. It has a medium to high amount of carbonation and a golden orange color and, once poured, produces a foamy head that hangs above the glass for a considerable amount of time. Johnny’s American IPA looks great and delivers on taste. While a beer with a low amount of alcohol is usually considered a bad thing in the world of microbreweries, it could be argued that the 4% ABV works in this particular beer’s favor. The lower alcohol content makes this beer fun to session and allows the consumer to enjoy even more of this great tasting IPA. For students at Salt Lake Community College who enjoy a good ale, Dead Horse Amber Ale is a worthy choice. For beer drinkers who would like test the waters of IPAs, or who are looking for a good IPA to session this summer, Johnny’s American IPA is a fun beer that is easy to find in Salt Lake. Bottom line: The Moab Brewery delivers on taste and has a large variety of beers to suite all styles of consumers. It is a unique brewery that gives Utahans great options for local ales that are ice cold and on the shelves of gas stations all summer long. The GLOBE A4 Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 Arts&Entertainment ‘Man of Steel’ proves that change can be good Stephen Romney Staff Writer “It’s pretty good” When I heard that the director’s chair for Man of Steel was given to Zack Snyder, a filmmaker who can produce decent adaptations of graphic novels one moment and then make a film about vapid-eyed strippers who are actually mental patients fighting monsters in their delusional minds the next, I braced myself for a needlessly hardboiled reboot of an American icon with slow-motion galore. However, I found myself pleasantly surprised that, though different from its predecessors, still feels like a real Superman story. There are deviations from the mythos, but it still has all of the necessary elements to make a superhero movie compelling. Henry Cavill stars as Clark Kent, the last son of Krypton, sent to Earth by his father JorEl, played by Russell Crowe, as the Krypton planet meets its end. While struggling to form his identity as a child of two worlds, the arrival of General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, forces him to step up as the defender of Earth he is fated to be. The movie is long at 153 minutes. The story also spends a great deal of time depicting the fate of Krypton. It’s not a particularly boring or drawn-out sequence, but it’s sizable enough that I got a little impatient. This isn’t entirely helped by its not-so chronological progression as the film glances over Clark’s childhood assuming that it’s the same kind of information we already know about. The story really picks up when Zod arrives on the planet. This also allows for the more intense action scenes that, while mostly CGI, are still easy to follow and don’t linger too long. Zack Snyder managed to keep his use of slo-mo to a minimum. Speaking of Zod, the changes that were made to the mythos were pretty minimal, despite the panic of the fan boys. Even though the appearances and certain events were different, at the heart of the film, the characters are the same ones fans know and love. When it comes to the acting, it’s pretty good. It took a while for Henry Cavill’s performance to grow on me, but by the end of the film, I was able to see him as Superman. Michael Shannon’s performance as Zod, however, was a bit mixed. He was good at being intimidating, but there are points in the film where the intensity is dialed down at an Photo courtesy of Warner Brothers While the costume was not well recieved in the publicity photo, it’s limited appearance in the film made it bearable. almost jarring pace. Although the motivations are clear, they could’ve conveyed the more sympathetic aspects of Zod in a smoother way. There are times where the score composed by Hans Zimmer, the composer for Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, comes on a little too strong and heavy. Combine this with the surround-sound of a movie theater, and your head will feel like a plate of Jell-O being carried by a shivering waiter on roller skates. Overall, I enjoyed this film as it was much better than I expected. It’s a fresh take on Superman that sidesteps much of the information we already know going in while still making it easy for those unfamiliar with the character to get invested. While it is long, it still maintains a steady pace once it gets past the backstory showcased at the start of the film. If you’re a fan of the Nolan Batman films or are a die-hard fan of the Superman comics, then you’ll definitely find enjoyment with this film. On my personal scale, I give Man of Steel a 4/5.

The Animal Crossing franchise revolves around the player, a new citizen in town, and the citizens of the town with whatever name you decide to give it. The premise is that the player has to help the town expand, create friendships and essentially live a second life in game. New Leaf, the newest version of the game, changes the formula though not the game play. New Leaf’s biggest change is that when the player arrives in town, s/he becomes the mayor, rather than just a citizen. Being mayor is harder than it seems in the lazy little village as you have to enact new laws in the town and increase your approval rating. While passing laws isn’t obligatory, it does help customize your personal Photo courtesy of Nintendo experience with game. Laws that you can pass include the ‘Night Owl’ law which forces the citizens and shops to be active at night, or the ‘Keep Your Town Beautiful’ law that prevents weeds from growing. Another change is increased customizability as you can now change the town and change the avatar even more. Character customization ranges from simple shirt designs to eye color and even pants. Want to make the character look like Bruce Lee from ‘Game of Death’? Now it’s possible. Customizing the town is the real focus, since as mayor, the player can add decorations like water fountains and bridges. These changes add to the ‘Perfect Town Goal’ and increase the game’s replayability. Increased player connectivity also adds value as you can visit other players’ houses and even visit friends’ towns. Apart from just visiting the town, New Leaf also adds multi-player minigames. With an increased focus on customization and multi-player, this is the best Animal Crossing to date. Fans who already play are in for a treat, and this is the best place for new people interested in the series. For a more in-depth review, be sure to check out the online edition at www.

The Weekly Reel: The Makings of a Cinematic Univer se Stephen Romney Staff Writer Ever since the release of Marvel’s The Avengers, many individuals in Hollywood want to create a cinematic universe of their own. This is not solely limited to Marvel’s rival company DC; there are rumors circulating of the creation of a Tom Clancy cinematic universe. Point being, cinematic universes have become a hot property. By taking a look at Marvel’s playbook, let’s figure out what goes into making a successful cinematic universe. The first thing that is needed is a series of interconnected stories, either with adaptations of known franchises or a meticulously planned series of original stories with characters that audiences can latch onto and follow. In the case of Marvel and DC, no like how comic companies had editors-in-chief. Not only do you want to avoid conflicting events in your universe, you also want to make sure that the films in that universe have a similar feel to them so that it feels explanation is needed. like it’s a part of the brand The second thing that’s you’re creating. needed is someone to oversee In the case of Marvel, the creation of said films, much that person is Kevin Feige, president of production at Marvel Studios. In the case of DC, the public hopes that the responsibility will fall to Christopher Nolan, even though the filmmaker has gone on record saying that The Dark Knight Rises would be his last superhero film; yet, he stayed on as the producer of Man of Steel. REEL see page A6 The GLOBE Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 Opinion [email protected]cc.edu Romney Responds: Sex, Lies and Scouting Stephen Romney Staff Writer With the recent change in the policies of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) regarding homosexual members, many people on both sides cry foul for varying reasons. As commentator Shad Engkilterra pointed out in the previous print issue of The Globe, the BSA change in policy appears to be half-hearted. However, there’s a layer of politicking at work when it comes to the decision the BSA has made, a practice that has been used throughout history by our government. As part of their code of ethics, Boy Scouts are not allowed to engage in sexual activity outside of the institution of marriage, so the worry that gay Boy Scouts will turn other boys gay via “fooling around” is thrown out the window when you realize that having sex before marriage, even if you’re heterosexual, will get you kicked out as it’s a violation of the rules. The next rationale people use to argue for the full lifting of the ban is that the Scoutmaster Handbook explicitly states that “no Scoutmaster should undertake to teach Scouts, in any formalized manner, about sexual behavior.” As such, the argument is that the BSA is overstepping its bounds by implementing such a ban. Now the lifting of the ban on homosexual scouts only applies to scouts and not scout leaders. The obvious question is why not lift the ban on leaders as well, since many of the incoming scouts will eventually turn 18 and be considered adults. Here’s where the strategy comes into play. Many of the organizations that support the BSA are religious, including the LDS Church. As such, the BSA doesn’t want to risk losing a great deal of their monetary support. Since much of their support also comes from the government, there’s the looming pressure that if they don’t do something, they will lose the kickbacks they get from the government as a non-profit organization. The BSA has essentially solved part of the issue and kicked the rest down the road. This tactic was used in the past with the Compromise of 1850 when the balance between the slave states and the free states A5 was at risk because the U.S. acquired new territory from France and Mexico. The compromise introduced the idea of popular sovereignty where a state could decide whether or not it was a slave state by voting on the issue in a state poll, but the complexity of the bill only allowed it to apply to the territories of Utah and New Mexico, whereas the new state of California was admitted as a free state by default. The compromise only prevented secession and sectional conflicts for a short time before the nation broke out into civil war. Looking at that same scenario as applied to the BSA, its change in policy is only a temporary compromise, as it makes it look like the BSA is changing begrudgingly in an attempt to keep the favors of the various religious organizations that support them. On that same note, the idea that the gay members of the Scouts will eventually become adults is merely the tool that pushes the issue down the road until the time comes that those scouts will want to become Scoutmasters, thus appearing to “force” the BSA’s hand into lifting the ban in its entirety. Student loan rates to increase If you and congress do nothing, your student loan interest rate will double this July. Shad Engkilterra Staff Writer Interest rates on subsidized Stafford loans are set to double on July 1, 2013 if Congress takes no action. Republicans and Democrats have been unable to come to a compromise that does not put the financial burden squarely on the future of students. While some groups have mobilized to put pressure on Congress to keep the interest rate low, it is up to each individual student to make his or her wishes known to Congress and the President of the United States. MoveOn.org is organizing a day of action on June 27 with students gathering on campuses, in front of Fannie Mae offices and in other areas Senator Mike Lee can be reached at 801-5245933. Senator Orrin Hatch can be reached at 801-524-4380. President Obama can be reached at 202-456-1111. that have high visibility, and has an online petition to lower interest rates with almost 450,000 signatures. They are arguing that students should get the same loan rate that the banks get “through the Federal Reserve discount window,” which is set at about .75 percent. Senator Elizabeth Warren has backed the idea with the Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act. House Republicans have proposed a bill that adds 2.5 percent to the base interest rate on 10-year treasury notes. This would result in a percentage rate higher than the current 3.4 percent and would be capped at 8.5 percent. Congressman Matheson has already come out in support of not raising rates. Other representatives did not return phone calls. Students who want to keep student interest rates from doubling or worse should contact their Congressmen and Senators, as well as President Obama.

Rehydrate! diversions Food columnist Nadhirrah shares some tips and explains the reasons for staying hydrated this summer. Nadhirrah Staff Writer ANSWER TO TODAY’S PUZZLE C A S I T H E W R I P O N M A N T I C E L E I E L L E R A D S I S C S A Y A M S N O O T A N L S A D D N A P O L E O N O V E R E A T B R A Z I L N I C E N E S E N R I O C O D E S L O B N O A S N C Y L D E R O E W A L P E R A S E S B I S E C T N A T U R A L D Y N A M I T E A N O N G A M I E M E N E G O D A S A R L O S S E P T H P A R E V E R R E D A Z O N A E R A L D G E S The Earth is covered with about 70 percent water. Humans are made up of about the same percent as Earth, so it is no wonder why we need to keep hydrated. According to thefreedictionary.com, hydration is the process of combining with water. Summer is here, and in Utah, it will be hot causing people to become dehydrated. There is one very simple way to avoid this process: drink water. Keeping hydrated is important since we are mostly water; it makes sense that the body uses water to maintain its system. Water is the agent that makes blood flow, which supplies needed nutrients to cells and removes waste; it is also the means of controlling heart rate and body temperature. Without water the body will stop working. Survival experts say after three days water is needed or the person will die. Most people when they get thirsty don’t reach for water. Being thirsty is one of the signs of dehydration. Other signs include dry skin, headache and constipation. The big question is how much water is necessary to stay hydrated. The simple rule that we hear all the time is eight glasses a day. This is the minimum. People need to drink enough to replace what has been expelled though perspiration, breathing and bodily waste. The Mayo Clinic recommends that men consume about 3 liters and women 2.2 liters of water through drinking and high water-content food SIGNS OF DEHYDRATION: • Dry, sticky mouth • Sleepiness or tiredness • Decreased urine output • Few or no tears when crying • Dry skin • Headache • Constipation • Dizziness or lightheadedness SIGNS OF SEVERE DEHYDRATION: • Extreme thirst • Extreme fussiness or sleepiness in infants and children • Irritability and confusion in adults • Very dry mouth, skin and mucous membranes like cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce and citrus fruit. One of the quickest ways to hydrate naturally is to drink coconut water or eat watermelon; both are healthy alternatives to Gatorade. While soda is liquid, it is combined with sugar and caffeine, so soda is not the best thing to use to hydrate. If a person is unable to keep fluids down, more irritable, sleepy or less active than usual, has diarrhea, bloody stool, or has other signs of dehydration, it is time to seek medical attention. Dehydration, especially in older individuals and children, should be taken seriously. The simple key is to drink water and eat lots of water laden fruits and if all else fails drink at least eight, eight-ounce glasses of water a day. • Lack of sweating • Little or no urination • Any urine that is produced will be dark yellow or amber • Sunken eyes • Shriveled and dry skin that lacks elasticity and doesn’t “bounce back” when pinched into a fold • In infants, sunken fontanels • Low blood pressure • Rapid heartbeat • Rapid breathing • No tears when crying • Fever • In the most serious cases, delirium or unconsciousness Courtesy of mayoclinic.com The GLOBE A6 Opinion [email protected] Another Wacky Wednesday: World Sauntering Day Contributing Writer Take it easy. Walk slowly. Drift, loiter, meander and dilly-dally while taking a stroll today, World Sauntering Day. W. T. Rabe created this wacky holiday during the 1970s at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan as a campaign against jogging. According to a recent informal survey, Salt Lake Community College students are not among those who observe World Sauntering Day, which is recognized every year on June 19; yet, students claim to be avid saunterers. “I don’t plan to saunter; it just happens,” wrote one student in response to the survey. Students are sauntering at home, at work and at school. They are sauntering alone, with their dogs and with their spouses. They are sauntering in parks, in the mountains and around town. Although it seems sauntering can take place anywhere anytime, there are a few reel continued from A4 The third aspect that’s necessary for the creation of a cinematic universe is a character who can start things off, one who can carry a film and lay solid groundwork for expansion and continuation. For Marvel, that character was Iron Man, and for DC, they first attempted this with Hal Jordan (the Green Lantern) but Use your melon - st ay nutr itiously hydr ated Nadhirrah Staff Writer June 19 is World Sauntering Day. Jessica Bustamante Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 supposed rules to sauntering. “You should wear comfortable clothing,” said John Rabe, son of W. T. Rabe, on National Public Radio. “You don’t care where you’re going, how you’re going or when you get there.” Cam Misrasi, a student at SLCC, said that he saunters in his “pink Jerusalem cruisers, aka flip flops.” He claims that sauntering is a prerequisite for being a hippie. According to the MerriamWebster Dictionary, to saunter is “to walk about in an idle or leisurely manner.” If this sounds pointless to you, then you might be interested to learn about the benefits of sauntering. Sauntering helps “people with depression or anxiety. Walking literally does increase your mood. Makes you feel better, mentally, physically, emotionally,” said Tatiana Burton, the health promotion program manager for the Health and Wellness Department at SLCC. If you didn’t make any plans to saunter today, don’t worry. There are plenty of opportunities this month to celebrate World Sauntering Day. You can saunter in Murray Park during the Murray Arts in the Park on June 20 and then saunter to Library Square to experience the Utah Arts Festival, which is going on from June 20 through June 23. Every Saturday morning until Oct. 19, you can saunter through Pioneer Park and absorb the Downtown Farmers Market or saunter through Liberty Park and check out the free Chase Home Museum of Folk Arts. For higher altitudes, you can saunter around the Plaza Deck at Snowbird every Friday night before watching free and family friendly movies. There are unlimited possibilities this summer. Whether or not you have work or family or both, the only thing holding you back is you. Get out there and “smell the roses,” as Rabe would say, “pay attention to the world around you.” Happy sauntering! Nothing is better after a day in the hot summer sun than a nice cold slice of watermelon. People have been enjoying watermelon for at least 5,000 years. There are ancient hieroglyphs showing watermelon cultivation in Egypt. Watermelons are native to Africa where they became a convenient way to take water across the deserts and saved lives when other water was contaminated. They were so important that King Tut was buried with watermelon seeds. Watermelon belongs to the curcurbitaceae family – cousin to cucumbers and pumpkins. It is made up of 92 percent water. Not only do they help rehydrate but watermelons also provide electrolytes. They have no fat or cholesterol and contain vitamins A and C and potassium. Watermelons have an anti-inflammatory property. They have a long tradition of being used to treat sunburns, hangovers and depression. Lycopene found in red or pink watermelon is thought to help now hope that character will be Superman. The fourth thing that one needs to successfully create a cinematic universe is a character to link the separate stories together, one that goes from film to film, either as an Easter egg in a teaser scene or as simply a recurring member of the supporting cast. Nick Fury and Agent Coulson were those characters for Marvel, as they began appearing in The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2. For DC, people speculate that the character that could be used for such a role would be Amanda Waller, a recurring villain/antihero who has been branded in the New 52 as DC’s answer to Marvel’s Nick Fury. She appeared in Green Lantern and is also set to appear in Season 2 of DC’s television series Arrow, as well as being rumored to appear in an upcoming Green Arrow film. The primary reason for such speculation was that the character played a similar role in the DC animated universe of the 90s and early 2000s, linking Justice League Unlimited to Batman Beyond. Finally, you need something for the films to lead up to, the culmination of all the plotlines and stories you’ve been releasing to audiences over the prevent cancer and cataract formation. There are over 500 kinds of watermelon including square, seedless and yellow. These are divided into two main categories picnic and icebox. The icebox watermelons are usually smaller, and in Japan, be kept in the refrigerator and lasts about a week. Like most food, the sooner it is eaten the more nutrients it will have. Many people have heard or been told by a prankster not to eat the seeds, usually after it has been accidently swallowed, because it will grow in the stomach. While this may be funny to tell people, it is not true. In China, they roast watermelon seeds like pumpkin seeds. Down south, they pickle the rind for a treat, and in Russia, they make watermelon beer. There is no need to waste any part of the watermelon; it is completely edible. For people with a sweet tooth, try drying a watermelon. Cut off the rind, are made square to fit the shelf pickle that if you choose, place of a refrigerator exactly.

This is what essentially rewards the viewers for their loyalty to your brand. For Marvel, this was The Avengers. DC is hoping to create the same lightning-ina-bottle effect by leading up to a Justice League movie, which is rumored to be in the hands of Zack Snyder if Man of Steel proves to be successful. David S. Goyer, writer for Man of Steel, has been confirmed as the screenwriter. Take pride in what you’ve accomplished so far and know that you can add a Bachelor’s to your list of achievements.

Whether or not these companies will be successful is another story entirely, as only time and money will tell the story of triumphant success or abject failure.
