Have you ever seen people walking around with red circles on their back, legs or arms? How about Michael Phelps in the Olympics with strange marks on his back? Well, we finally figured out what the conversation was really about. On September 23, a group of students from Grand Canyon University AzHOSA and the GCU Physical Therapy Club got to partake in a cupping clinic and live demonstration.

Vivid descriptions of a cadaver are included in this article. Consider yourself forewarned.

I cannot believe I am doing this.

I stood outside the Grand Canyon University cadaver lab, overwhelmed by nerves. Why in the world did I sign up for a field trip where we would be viewing the anatomy of a complete (very dead) body? Whatever happened to peaceful field trips to the zoo and aquarium?

If the name Amazon popped into your head upon seeing the words “online shopping,” you are probably not alone. Tens of millions of people rely on the Internet giant and other e-commerce stores for everything from diapers to gluten-free flours. Every time a transaction is made on these sites, a shopper’s full name, address and credit card information is sent to a server. To save time, repeat customers often store their sensitive information with the e-commerce site, potentially posing a significant risk in the event of a data breach. If you choose a degree in information technology with an emphasis in cyber security, you can put your God-given talent to work by helping to protect people in your community and throughout the country from online thieves.

Back in 2003 I took a course in data mining as a graduate student at the University of Washington. At the time, data mining seemed like a nice marketing term – just another hot technology buzz phrase to describe the same old database design and searching techniques. Fast forward to the year 2018 and data mining has evolved to the point where it could actually be offered as a degree program. During the fall 2017 semester I taught a course at Grand Canyon University in our growing computer science program called Search Engines and Data Mining. Over the last 20 years the internet has evolved into an economy of information where data mining is a core skill that our computer science students are expected to enter the workforce with.

Most of us have heard about the popularity of bitcoin, but how bitcoin and digital currencies actually work is not as widely known. The technology behind digital currencies like bitcoin and ethereum is called the blockchain. The blockchain is the mechanism that keeps digital currency transactions secure. Quite literally, the blockchain is a public ledger of all transactions and anyone is able to see it and make their own transactions. How this public ledger works is the complete reversal of our traditional banking system and really ushers in a new era of distributed computing.
