Getting better all the time: JILA strontium atomic clock sets new records

By caughey

In another advance at the far frontiers of timekeeping by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) researchers, the latest modification of a record-setting strontium atomic clock has achieved precision and stability levels that now mean the clock would neither gain nor lose one second in some 15 billion years—roughly the age of the universe.

Coffee for Your Garden & Your Skin

Coffee for Your Garden & Your Skin

coffee grounds

When I was a barista in Brooklyn, I remember a customer asking for the café’s unwanted coffee grounds for his home composting. We had tons of it—leftover from the espresso grinder and from making drip coffee—filling up our trashcans so we were happy to pass some on to him.

Recycling coffee grounds into your compost or fertilizer is a fantastic way to cut down on coffee waste. It’s also a great way to add valuable nutrients to your garden, since coffee is full of nitrogen and antioxidants.

Another fun use for coffee, which I also learned while working at that shop in Brooklyn, is for skincare. A couple of my former co-workers would take expired whole beans, grind them up, and use them to make facial or body scrubs. Not only does a coffee scrub smell delicious, it also makes for a wonderful natural exfoliant.

Since I don’t have a garden but I am obsessed with DIY natural skincare products, I’ve definitely thought about making my own coffee scrub. Whatever you’re into, it’s good to know that we can reuse coffee grounds instead of just trashing them.

If you decide to take on your own beauty …read more

Chancellor’s Corner: Reporting Bias Motivated Incidents, a call to action

Chancellor’s Corner: Reporting Bias Motivated Incidents, a call to action

By fraziere

This week when you walk around campus, you might see a series of posters asking you to report Bias Motivated Incidents (BMI’s). The posters, which are part of a CU-Boulder student-led campaign, use very graphic language to bring attention to the need to report acts of bias on our campus. I am joining the students in asking you to report these incidents by visiting http://ift.tt/1cY4e5X, so we can provide support services and administrative action as appropriate.

Faces of Boulder-Pic of the Day!

“I am in love with traveling and hiking and I want to make it a life goal to make sacrifices to spend money on traveling rather than lots of material goods.”

Meet Emily! She is a sophomore at CU Boulder, majoring in Anthropology and Journalism, while passionately minoring in Spanish.

“I am studying abroad in Argentina this summer to practice my Spanish language skills,” she says.

What made Emily want to attend CU Boulder?

“I grew up in Colorado and as much as I loved the idea of moving to a new state, I wanted to explore Colorado on my own terms. I also appreciated the academics of CU. I love the relaxed vibe of Boulder and I’m amazed how many people I meet that love adventure and the outdoors as much as I do. Not to mention Boulder is just insanely beautiful.”
