Children, obey your parents in the LORD, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”-which is the first commandment with a promise- “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the LORD.

Ephesians 6:1-4


On July 11, professors Larry Mylin, John Harms, Rick Schaeffer, Jesse Kleingardner and Roseann Sachs accompanied 11 biochemistry, chemistry and biology majors to the 9th Annual Disappearing Boundaries Summer Research Meeting at Albright College.

New blog site launched for couples raising a child with a disability

Some of you know our daughter Mary and know how God has used her tremendously to shape our lives. We know the joys she has brought us, but we also know that having a child with disabilities puts a lot of strain on a marriage. For that reason, Laurie and I have launched a blog/ministry to give hope and encouragement to other couples in our situation. Check out our web site and feel free to encourage others who might benefit from our site to do the same. – Brian Nejmeh

Windows 10 update required

This is for employees that currently have Windows 10 (Windows 10 has a white flag in the bottom left corner.) Because Microsoft is now doing Windows 10 updates every 12 to 18 months, we need to do what they call a Feature 10 Update, which is a lot bigger than a normal Windows update. How do you know if you need this update? After determining that you have Windows 10, you will go to the Start button, then select Settings (little gear icon) > System > About. If the version is NOT 1803, you will need to run this update. We will have this Feature update available in Microsoft Software Center for you to install starting today and going through Aug. 6. On Aug. 7, this Feature Update will install on your machine automatically, if you have not done so already. Once it is done installing, it will ask you to restart, or it may restart your machine automatically. During the installation, you may continue to work on your machine. After restarting, you may have a 15 to 30 minute time period that you will be unable to do any work on your machine. You may see your machine restart multiple times and will know when it is done, when it comes back to the login screen. After you login, it will run through several screens saying it is setting up Windows for you. This may take approximately five minutes. After that is done, you should be good to go. We recommend you do this Feature 10 Update while on campus with a wired network connection. If you are unable complete this update while on campus, you may connect to OpenVPN and run the install that way, but it will take considerably longer to do so. For more details on this installation process go to this ITS Blog post: Please remember to check the computers assigned to student employees.
