Sauer mentioned that more than 125 LANL employees expressed an interest in the program.Students would complete the Associate’s Degree in Pre-Engineering at UNM-LA. The UNM School of Engineering plans to start offering upper division classes on the UNM-LA campus in Fall 2020. Students interested in the Mechanical Engineering program should contact Irina Alvestad at 505.661.4696 or email email@example.com.The Advisory Board recommended no increase in tuition and fees for 2020-21, following the proposal by the UNM-LA Executive Team.

The branded cannabis to be sold with the permission of the legendary musician’s familyJust in time for the reggae legend’s birthday, a Bob Marley Cannabis Line has launched, dubbed “Marley Natural” included four types of cannabis flower, as well as hemp seed oil-based body care products.The line of cannabis will initially be carried in a handful of dispensaries in California (where medical marijuana is legal) before expanding in that state over the next month. That expansion will continue to other states where the drug is legal throughout the rest of this year and, by next year, they will be sold internationally, the company said in a press release Friday morning.The company is also launching a line of body care products, including lotion and soap, made with hemp seed oil and Jamaican botanicals as well as a line of wood and glass marijuana-smoking accessories. Those products are available to buy online.The branded pot—named after Marley, who died from melanoma cancer in 1981—will be sold with the permission of the legendary musician’s family. It is part of a 30-year worldwide exclusive licensing agreement with Marley Natural’s parent company, Privateer Holdings, a cannabis-focused investment firm.

IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 RELATED PHOTOS KEYWORDS Clear mission: Japan will be aiming for its first victory in the FIVB World League when it takes on Argentina this weekend. | FIVB FIVB World League Japan coach Masashi Nambu, in his first season on the job, admitted that he and his squad were happy to be back home after a long journey.“After three weeks away it feels good to be back home,” Nambu said on Friday at a press conference. “Everybody is happy. We hope to play better this weekend.”Argentina (3-3) is currently in second place in Pool D behind leader France (6-0) with 11 points, while Japan is last with just one point.“We played Japan last weekend in Argentina,” said coach Julio Velasco. “They were some good, interesting games. I’m sure they will play better here. They have played outside the country for three weeks, which is tough.”Velasco, who took over as Argentina coach in late April after leading Iran to two Asian championships (2011, 2013), says he is using the World League as an opportunity to look over his new charges.“This is my first year with Argentina, so I am testing and using different players now,” stated Velasco. “The philosophy of a coach must be very pragmatic. Each team has to find a balance between the different aspects of the game. This is what we are looking at now. This is the best way to do it, rather than using the same system with different teams.”Velasco said he enjoyed his time in Iran, but that the pull of his native country brought him back home.“I was very happy to work in Iran these past years,” he commented. “I am very happy the Iran team continues to win. Argentina is a special country. It is my country and I have lived outside it for 31 years. I made the move more for emotional reasons than professional reasons.”Nambu acknowledged that he is going through a learning process the first time around.“As the new coach of Japan I feel I am gaining experience with each match,” he noted. “I can see our improvement step-by-step.”Nambu believes some of his side’s troubles so far have been self-inflicted.“Toward the end of matches we have made a lot of unforced errors,” he said. “I think that is due to lack of experience. We will fight here with all of our might.”Japan suffered a blow during training on Friday when outside spiker Tatsuya Fukuzawa injured his ankle. He has been ruled out of this weekend’s matches.Nambu also said that he will use Shinji Takahashi at setter, after Hideomi Fukatsu was hurt against Argentina last weekend.Argentina will be without the services of Pablo Bengolea, who was injured during the victories over Japan.Facundo Conte led Argentina’s sweep over Japan with 36 points in the two matches last weekend.Kunihiro Shimizu is the second-highest scorer (87 points) in the group at the halfway mark.The 25th FIVB World League features 28 teams split into seven pools of four that compete in a six-round, 12-match format.Russia is the defending World League champion, while Brazil was the runnerup last season. Komaki, Aichi Pref. – After a tough stretch on the road, Japan will aim for its first victory when it takes on Argentina in a pair of matches in FIVB World League Pool D action at Komaki Park Arena starting on Saturday.Japan (0-6) was swept by Germany, France and the South Americans the past three weeks.

BATON ROUGE – One half of the promising Montverde, Florida, connection for LSU will be on display when the Tigers play at Alabama-Birmingham at 8 p.m. Thursday on the CBS Sports Network.Freshman point guard Jalyn Patterson, who was part of the Montverde Academy team that won back-to-back national prep championships in 2013 and 2014, is expected to start, as junior point guard Josh Gray has an ankle injury. Gray is averaging 11.1 points and 4.6 assists a game for the 7-2 Tigers and hit the game-winning layup to beat No. 16 West Virginia, 74-73, with 7.4 seconds to go on Dec. 4. Gray injured his ankle in the Tigers’ 76-67 win over Sam Houston State on Saturday.Sophomore shooting guard Tim Quarterman, who scored a career-high 21 at West Virginia and is averaging 11.8 points and 5.3 rebounds, is also “banged up,” according to coach Johnny Jones.Patterson is averaging only 2.2 points a game in nine games this season and 13.6 minutes an outing as he has been slowed by a minor injury himself. But Jones is ready to start him if need be.“He’s a good ball handler, a good passer and doesn’t take a lot of chances,” Jones said. “He’s a very capable scorer. He’s been in that position before. He just hasn’t been at this level for any stretches of time. But we’re very confident in him in the role that he may have to play. The only difference is the number of minutes he can play. It’s going to depend on how long he can go.”Patterson averaged 12.1 points and 4.1 assists for Montverde last season and led the team in 3-point field goal percentage at 48.9. Many of his assists were to 6-foot-8 forward Ben Simmons, an LSU early signee last November who is considered the No. 1 player in the nation.“Whatever the coaches need me to do,” Patterson said before the season in an interview with NOLA.com. “I just do what a point guard does. I help my teammates and find ways they can score the ball. All my career, I’ve been a player like that.”UAB (4-6) is coming off a 79-71 win over UNC-Asheville. The Tigers are making their final road trip before opening Southeastern Conference play on Jan. 8 at Missouri. LSU hosts Charleston on Dec. 22, followed by Southern Mississippi on Dec. 29 and Savannah State on Jan. 3.“It will certainly be a great challenge for us at UAB,” Jones said. “It’s going to give us an opportunity to go on the road to see if we can continue to improve. We may be a little hampered because of injuries, and it may cause us to shuffle our lineup. We have had adversity, and our kids have done an excellent job of filling that void and being able to fight through it. We are going to be presented with that same type of challenge on Thursday night.”
