The Round Up
The Round Up is the independent, student-run newspaper of New Mexico State University. It publishes daily breaking news and information on its website, prints a weekly edition on the campus; the Round Up was established in 1907, was first published in Albuquerque, New Mexico, US. The Round Up was established in 1907 as a result of a merger of The New Mexico Collegian, founded in January 1891, the College Weekly, founded in November 1906, it was first published in 1907-1908 school year, with 37 weekly issues completing its first volume, through the leadership of Justin R. Weddell, the Managing Editor; the Round Up was first printed in Albuquerque resulting to its first publication to the public, since the city has the best printing machine at that time. The name of the student newspapers was selected as a result of its one editorial stating, "It is a precise name for the paper, a weekly round-up of news and involves a rounding up of subscribers and advertisers as well; the NMSU Board of Regents recognized the Round Up as an important function of the university, making it the official student publication of the university.
In 1999, The Round Up launched its website. The Round Up underwent many different faces and phases including breaking away from the student government, ASNMSU, becoming independent in 2013. In 2015, the paper changed its brand identity and format for a year, reduced its frequency to once monthly. In 2016 it reverted to the previous format and weekly publication, becoming based at NMSU; the Round Up continues to promote its digital platform. Now in its 112th year of existence, The Round Up is the longest-standing student organization on the NMSU campus, has never skipped a semester of coverage; the Round Up official website Digitized and searchable version of The Round Up since 1893
Aristida is a nearly cosmopolitan genus of plants in the grass family. Aristida is distinguished by having three awns on each lemma of each floret; the genus includes about 300 species found worldwide in arid warm regions. This genus is among those colloquially called three-awns wiregrasses and needlegrasses; the name Aristida is derived from the Latin "arista", meaning "awn". They are characteristic of semiarid grassland; the Wiregrass Region of North America is named for A. stricta. Other locales where this genus is an important component of the ecosystem include the Carolina Bays, the sandhills of the Carolinas, elsewhere, Mulga scrub in Australia, the xeric grasslands around Lake Turkana in Africa. Local increases in the abundance of wiregrasses is a good indicator of overgrazing, as livestock avoid them. Aristida stems are ascending to erect, with both cauline leaves; the leaves may be flat or inrolled, the basal leaves may be tufted. The inflorescences may be either raceme-like, with spiky branches.
The glumes of a spikelet are narrow lanceolate without any awns, while the lemmas are hard, three-veined, have the three awns near the tip. The awns may be quite long. Selected species include: New Mexico State University Botanical Garden, which has a large collection of local Aristida species Puccinia aristidae, a plant pathogenic urediniomycete fungus first described from three-awn grass List of Poaceae genera Hickman, James C.: The Jepson Manual - Higher Plants of California: 1234-1235
Battle of I-10
The Battle of I-10 is the name given to the New Mexico State–UTEP football rivalry. It is a college rivalry game between The University of Texas at El Paso and New Mexico State University, it is called the Battle of I-10 because the two universities are located along Interstate 10 connecting El Paso and Las Cruces. The 104-year-old series between the UTEP Miners and the NMSU Aggies has had many exciting finishes in its storied history. Although UTEP holds the series lead at 57–37–2 due to dominance in the series from the 1920s to the 1960s, UTEP's advantage is 8–2 since 2009; the winner of the annual matchup receives a pair of traveling trophies. The older of the two is known as the Silver Spade, it is a replica of an old prospector's shovel found in an abandoned mine in the Organ Mountains near Las Cruces and has been traded between the schools since 1955. A second trophy titled the Mayor's Cup but nicknamed the Brass Spittoon, was added in 1982. Due to the close proximity of the campuses it was natural for a rivalry to develop.
The Texas College of Mines played its first game against a collegiate opponent versus New Mexico A&M in 1914 and, with few exceptions, including during World War I and World War II, the teams would meet again every year. Following World War II the series resumed on an annual basis from 1946 until 2001, when UTEP's administration made the controversial decision to cancel their scheduled trip to Las Cruces in favor of scheduling an additional home contest against a Division I-AA opponent; the schools agreed to meet again in 2002, but did not play again until 2004 in El Paso when the Miners exacted revenge for their blowout loss two years prior with a 45–0 pasting of the Aggies, the most lopsided result in the series in 55 years. The blowout marked the beginning of a three-game winning streak for UTEP in the rivalry; the tide of the series seemingly turned back in the Aggies' favor, as NMSU defeated UTEP the next two years, their first back-to-back wins over UTEP since 1994 and 1995. The Aggies edged the Miners 34–33 on September 20, 2008 at the Sun Bowl for their first win in El Paso since 1994.
However, the most recent three games in the series have gone back to the Miners, with UTEP defeating NMSU at Aggie Memorial Stadium 38–12 on September 19, 2009, topping the Aggies 42–10 at the Sun Bowl on September 18, 2010, again defeating the Aggies 16–10 on September 17, 2011 in Las Cruces for their first back-to-back road wins in the series since winning four straight games in Las Cruces between 1986 and 1991. From 1920 to 1951 UTEP hosted 22 of 28 games. Before 1927 NMSU dominated the first 10 games with a record of 8–1–1. From 1927 to 1967 UTEP dominated the series with a record of 29–7–1. NMSU's back-to-back victories in 1960–1961 were its first since 1937–1938; as of 2011, UTEP has won on the road 17 times. There have been 2 ties in the series, once in El Paso in 1925 and once in Las Cruces in 1952; the September 26, 1998 game at Aggie Memorial Stadium set the all-time attendance record for any football game at the stadium with 32,993 in attendance. The September 25, 1999 game at Sun Bowl Stadium set a new attendance record for that stadium with 52,247 which surpasses all Sun Bowl games and NFL Exhibition games played there.
However, since 2 regular season UTEP games have surpassed that attendance. The two most lopsided victories in the rivalry occurred in 1922 and 1948. 1922 – NMSU 64, UTEP 0 1948 – UTEP 92, NMSU 7 Note: UTEP was known as the Texas School of Mines and Metallurgy prior to 1949 and Texas Western College from 1949–1967, NMSU was known as New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts prior to 1960. Both schools are listed under their modern abbreviations for all games; the NMSU and UTEP men's basketball programs share remarkably similar histories and have played an competitive series of games against one another. The programs both experienced their greatest national prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when both schools were led by young up-and-coming coaches who would win more than 700 games and appeared in the NCAA Tournament's Final Four within four years of each other. UTEP won the 1966 national title while NMSU advanced to the 1970 national semifinal before falling to UCLA, but won the consolation game to finish the season third in the nation.
Both programs returned to national prominence in the early 1990s with the Aggies and Miners both advancing to the NCAA Tournament's "Sweet Sixteen" in 1992. NMSU has appeared in the NCAA Tournament 18 times to UTEP's 17 appearances, NMSU has advanced to the Sweet Sixteen five times to UTEP's four. Most both schools won conference titles and advanced to the NCAA tournament in 2010. There is some discrepancy between the two schools on the all-time series record as well as the number of all-time meetings between the schools. Entering the 2017–18 season NMSU records show that the schools have met 200 times, with NMSU holding a 109–103 all time advantage, while UTEP records show 201 meetings with NMSU's advantage at 108–104. Uniquely among non-conference rivalries, the schools traditionally play a two-game home-and-home series each season, unlike most other non-conference rivalry series where a single meeting per season is the norm. UTEP swept the 2010–11 series between the schools, winning 73–56 on November 23, 2010 in El Paso and 74–72 on November 30, 2010 in Las Cruces.

Garrey Edward Carruthers is an American politician, who served as the 27th governor of New Mexico and the Chancellor of New Mexico State University. He served as special assistant to the U. S. Secretary of Agriculture from 1974 to 1975, director of the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute at NMSU, state chair of the Republican Party of New Mexico from 1977 to 1979, assistant Secretary of the Interior for land and resources from 1981 to 1984, he earned his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from New Mexico State University and a PhD in Economics in 1968 from Iowa State University. A Republican, he was elected the 27th Governor of New Mexico in 1986. A major focal point of the race was reinstating the death penalty, resulting in outgoing Democratic Governor Toney Anaya commuting the sentences of all on death row in protest, his term ended in 1991: he could not seek reelection, since at that time, New Mexico term limits did not allow governors to seek consecutive terms. Carruthers was replaced by Democrat Bruce King.
After leaving office, he was served as president and CEO of the Cimarron Health Plan, now Molina Healthcare of New Mexico, Inc. from 1993 to 2003. In 2003, he was named dean of NMSU's College of Business, he helped establish NMSU's economic development operation, the Arrowhead Center, served as the university's vice president for economic development. He helped found NMSU's Domenici Institute and serves as its director. In May 2013 he was elected president of NMSU by the Board of Regents in a 3-2 vote. In 2017, the Board of Regents announced that his contract would not be renewed, resulting in his retirement effective July 1, 2018. Questioned by faculty at an on-campus meeting on his candidacy to become NMSU chancellor in 2013, Carruthers said that there was not a scientific consensus on climate change, he stated: "I don't know. I'm an economist. I don't do global warming. It's a scientific judgment that I can't make." Concerns were raised about his role in a tobacco industry lobby, The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition, which he chaired from 1993 to 1998.
In a letter, four state representatives said that science climate change, is an essential issue for NMSU. They raised concerns about Carruthers's involvement in TASSC; the state representatives said TASSC had "a clear history of industry involvement in staking out positions opposing now held beliefs regarding public health and the environment." In response, Carruthers expressed disagreement with the stance of TASSC on the risks of second-hand smoke. "I'm four-square against second-hand smoke," Carruthers said in an interview with the Albuquerque Journal. "I don't think people should smoke, second-hand smoke is detrimental to other people's health." Appearances on C-SPAN
A greenhouse is a structure with walls and roof made chiefly of transparent material, such as glass, in which plants requiring regulated climatic conditions are grown. These structures range in size from small sheds to industrial-sized buildings. A miniature greenhouse is known as a cold frame; the interior of a greenhouse exposed to sunlight becomes warmer than the external ambient temperature, protecting its contents in cold weather. Many commercial glass greenhouses or hothouses are high tech production facilities for vegetables or flowers; the glass greenhouses are filled with equipment including screening installations, cooling and may be controlled by a computer to optimize conditions for plant growth. Different techniques are used to evaluate optimality-degrees and comfort ratio of greenhouse micro-climate in order to reduce production risk prior to cultivation of a specific crop; the idea of growing plants in environmentally controlled areas has existed since Roman times. The Roman emperor Tiberius ate a cucumber-like vegetable daily.
The Roman gardeners used artificial methods of growing to have it available for his table every day of the year. Cucumbers were planted in wheeled carts which were put in the sun daily taken inside to keep them warm at night; the cucumbers were stored under frames or in cucumber houses glazed with either oiled cloth known as specularia or with sheets of selenite, according to the description by Pliny the Elder. The first description of a heated greenhouse is from the Sanga Yorok, a treatise on husbandry compiled by a royal physician of the Joseon dynasty of Korea during the 1450s, in its chapter on cultivating vegetables during winter; the treatise contains detailed instructions on constructing a greenhouse, capable of cultivating vegetables, forcing flowers, ripening fruit within an artificially heated environment, by utilizing ondol, the traditional Korean underfloor heating system, to maintain heat and humidity. The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty confirm that greenhouse-like structures incorporating ondol were constructed to provide heat for mandarin orange trees during the winter of 1438.
The concept of greenhouses appeared in the Netherlands and England in the 17th century, along with the plants. Some of these early attempts required enormous amounts of work to winterize. There were serious problems with providing balanced heat in these early greenhouses; the first'stove' greenhouse in the UK was completed at Chelsea Physic Garden by 1681. Today, the Netherlands has many of the largest greenhouses in the world, some of them so vast that they are able to produce millions of vegetables every year; the French botanist Charles Lucien Bonaparte is credited with building the first practical modern greenhouse in Leiden, during the 1800s to grow medicinal tropical plants. Only on the estates of the rich, the growth of the science of botany caused greenhouses to spread to the universities; the French called their first greenhouses orangeries, since they were used to protect orange trees from freezing. As pineapples became popular, pineries, or pineapple pits, were built. Experimentation with the design of greenhouses continued during the 17th century in Europe, as technology produced better glass and construction techniques improved.
The greenhouse at the Palace of Versailles was an example of their size and elaborateness. The golden era of the greenhouse was in England during the Victorian era, where the largest glasshouses yet conceived were constructed, as the wealthy upper class and aspiring botanists competed to build the most elaborate buildings. A good example of this trend is the pioneering Kew Gardens. Joseph Paxton, who had experimented with glass and iron in the creation of large greenhouses as the head gardener at Chatsworth, in Derbyshire, working for the Duke of Devonshire and built The Crystal Palace in London. Other large greenhouses built in the 19th century included the New York Crystal Palace, Munich’s Glaspalast and the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken for King Leopold II of Belgium. In Japan, the first greenhouse was built in 1880 by Samuel Cocking, a British merchant who exported herbs. In the 20th century, the geodesic dome was added to the many types of greenhouses. Notable examples are the Eden Project, in Cornwall, The Rodale Institute in Pennsylvania, the Climatron at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis and Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky.
Greenhouse structures adapted in the 1960s when wider sheets of polyethylene film became available. Hoop houses were made by several companies and were frequently made by the growers themselves. Constructed of aluminum extrusions, special galvanized steel tubing, or just lengths of steel or PVC water pipe, construction costs were reduced; this resulted in many more greenhouses being constructed on garden centers. Polyethylene film durability increased when more effective UV-inhibitors were developed and added in the 1970s. Gutter-connected greenhouses became more prevalent in the 1990s; these greenhouses have
