Even before my graduation from Michigan State University this past spring, it was clear to me and to those in my graduating class that we would be entering the most difficult job market (save for those poor ’09 grads) in recent years. With many of my friends planning to move away from Michigan after graduation, I knew I too, would most likely end up a Detroit native living in a foreign land.
The cold of winter is awesome – I love it. Call me crazy. Maybe it’s because I’m from Michigan where it is commonplace to drive our snowmobiles to work and break out the snowshoes just to get to the mailbox.
In the days leading up to the blizzaster, I was pretty skeptical that anything of substance would actually happen. Living in Chicago after moving from Detroit, I am always looking to compare life here to life where I grew up.
Recently, I feel like life is moving extraordinarily fast. It seems like just a couple of days ago it was April. Okay, that is actually true, so let’s try that again. It seems like just a couple of weeks ago it was February. Even so, trying to remember what February was all about, on the other hand, is a dubious task.

One in four Jews is a carrier for one of 19 life-altering Jewish genetic disorders. The Center is the first and only community screening program in the nation to exclusively use an advanced gene sequencing carrier panel via saliva. This new gene sequencing test is the most advanced carrier screening option available and provides the same high detection rates whether it's completed through a blood draw or saliva sample.
