Dr. Richard Moreau, ACC chemistry LUMBERJACK Issue 6 Published by the students of Alpena Community College March 1991 instructor, anticipates lendin; IB expertise to the annual Science Olympics. A student competition, by Ellen Wisniewski If you are working on a computer in the BTC lab and a bouncing ball appears on. your screen, do not mistake it for a game. It is not, and it isn’t fun to play. The computers have been infected by the “bouncing ball’ virus. How did the computers become infected? Ken Hubbard, computer technician / advisor, stated ”The computers could have become infected by one of two ways. One, it could have been accidently brought in by a student using a disk from another college and using it in our computers. Two, a student could have intentionally brought the virus in. Why someone would do this or who could have done this is something I don’t know. Right now, the virus hasn’t damaged anything in “the computers, but it is very frustrating and distracting to students. Unfortunately, each time T have tried to wipe out the virus, According to authorities in the field, there are certain truths about computer viruses that we all need to be aware of. One is that viruses do exist and they can’t be, the event has expanded to include two new schools. completely avoided. Viruses at, some point can probably farm! your data, but the Beas of that are slim and it depends on the type of virus. Unfortunately, there is_ no sure protection against viruses. Once one is stopped, another one “is created and each time they are less detectable than the last. Finally, the major problem is’ that we won't see the end of it soon. If the viruses continue to become less detectable, then the aes likely we are to stop them; Unusual events highlight annual science competition by Frank Krist: The annual Region 2 Michigan Science — Ol; competition ec will ee held at ACC Saturday, - March I Se from elementary, junior high and high school will be competing in events like the Road Rally, in which students’ abilities to “read and use typographical road maps are tested. Other events range from playing music with bottles to chemistry “placing and participating which go towards the team (school’s) score. Region 2 director and ACC chemistry instructor, Dr. Richard Moreau is pleased to see twor new schools, Thunder Bay and Forest Area Junior Highs, will be attending the Science Olympiad for the first time. There , will be 11 high schools and 10 junior high schools competing in labs, or even the ion of insects and fossils. Events like Bee Building, Mousetrap Vehicle a the ee Drop require stu construct things for Soe The top three participants ie each event will receive medals, gold, silver and mpetitors also get points for people from are profitti *vaccines’ and ’viruses.’ On the brighter side, viruses: are not running rampant and they tend not to propagate themselves. People won’t normally pass on bad programs and some viruses reach a quick death before they can ee themselves out too far. According to Hubbard ‘aly one virus has been found at this time, but it can jump from . computer to computer each time «the infected disk is used.” The three high schools and junior high schools with the highest point total ‘will receive trophies. Their coaches will be presented with plaques, and everyone on the winning team gets a gold medal. The top two teams qualify for state competition to be held April 13 at Michigan State computer aided manufacturing demonstrations will take place at Besser Technical Center (BTC) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in room 106B. ‘The Science Olympiad starts at 9:30 am., and the awards ceremony will be held in the East © Campus at 4 p.m. Events will be i place at the Besser Technical Center (BTC) and at the Natural Resources Center (NRC) with the Astronomy Contest to be held at the Besser Museum. Gulf war causes shift in WAFB enrollment. “by Rich Spicer With at least 700 servicemen and women from Wurtsmith “Air Force Base in Oscoda currently stationed in the Middle East, it might be fair to assume that the number of students attending the’ Huron Shores Campus on the base hasdrastically dwindled. Not 50, director of the campus. Records show the current enrollment count at 542, down only six from last - year. Despite this slight decrease, the number of generated credit hours has increased by 254 over the same period, indicating that the average course load per student has increased. Sleevi attributes these_ says Tim Sleevi,~ numbers to ”...a more aggressive effort to attract military dependents and ciliaris, in addition to those response, with “about 21 students involved. Sleevi is also pleased ‘with the possibility of the addition of a nursing program starting in the fall. While not yet chiseled in stone, Sleevi stresses the program will be part-time should it become: reality. Another exciting addition to the Huron Shores Campus is a new counselor. Jim Howse brings with him 30 years of orpsticnes in “working with students. Sleevi © said the Oscoda High School counselor is available three nights a week to provide guidance for ‘Wurtsmith students. An eye to the future, with a wider array of classes, has helped the Huron Shores Campus enrollment count remain stable in this time of war. “Desert Storm is a big concern (at Wurtsmith),” said Sleevi, ”The military has been very helpful in the process to ~ minimize the hassle.” — Sleevi _ added, ”We're doing well; better than anticipated ...

ACC does not belong to this project, but because of the volunteer internship work at the college, Nethercut was invited to join. ACC’s internship program’ involves students using volunteer work experience for college credit.
