Ramadan (Islam)

This message relates to Ramadan (Islam) which is observed from June 28 through the evening of July 28, 2014.

Ramadan is observed on the ninth month of the Islamic Lunar calendar, when Muslims believe Allah revealed to Muhammad, through the angel Gabriel, the first verse of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam. Muhammad continued to receive these revelations throughout the rest of his life.

During this sacred month of Ramadan, Muslims from around the world spend the daylight hours fasting.  Muslims use this time for inner reflection, devotion to God and self-control.  Fasting, the Fourth Pillar (obligation) of Islam serves many purposes: While they are hungry and thirsty, Muslims are reminded of the suffering of the poor. Fasting is also an opportunity to practice self-control and to cleanse the body and mind. And in this most sacred month, fasting helps Muslims feel the peace that comes from spiritual devotion as well as kinship with fellow believers.

Ramadan will end the evening of July 28th, commencing a joyous three day festival, “Eid al-Fitr.”  “Fitr” means “to break,” as Muslims end the fasting period with food and festivities.

New Restaurants in Fargo

Welcome to Summer 2014, where school’s out for summer, no more studying (at least for most of us), sitting in class, or worrying about what assignment is due next week.  Now, with all of this free time that we all have, it’s time to check out some of the new area restaurants that will be coming to town.  The first one on the list, Chipotle, is one of my favorite restaurants.

The best way that I can describe Chipotle is that it is very similar to a Qudoba.  If you have never been to a Qudoba before, well then I’m not sure how else to describe it.  Chipotle serves burritos, burrito bowls, crispy tacos, soft tacos, salads, and chips and guacamole, among others.  It is actually my mom’s favorite restaurant, and she would always take my family and I there whenever we were in St. Cloud, MN.


Chipotle will be located at the Prairie Stone Center 1680 45th St. S.  Other restaurants in the same area that are planning to open soon include: Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint, Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Classic Rock Coffee and Panda Express.  I have only heard of two of those restaurants before, both Potbelly Sandwhich Shop and Panda Express.  I’ve had Potbelly before, but I don’t really remember exactly what I had.  I believe they serve hot sandwhiches, and I may or may not have had a pulled pork sandwhich (yummm!).  Just about everyone should know Panda Express, seeing that this restaurant has been such a big hit at the Memorial Union.

Another restaurant that plans on opening up in South Fargo is Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews.  It plans on constructing at 4159 17th Ave. S., in an area just west of the West Acres Cinema and east of Granite City.  I have never eaten there before, but I heard that it’s pretty tasty!

Last but not least, a new restaurant that has been open since this winter is Sweeto Burrito located in Downtown Fargo.  I have only eaten there once, but man was it delicious!  I ordered the bacon cheeseburger burrito, and yes, there were fries in my burrito, and yes, it did taste like a bacon cheeseburger.

Out of all of these restaurants, I believe Chipotle will be the biggest hit.  Maybe I will see you there!

Have a splendid summer!

Time Management - Graduate Students

Summer has officially arrived! The weather has warmed up, the sun is out, and the pools are open! While it is tempting to lay outside all day soaking up the sun, for graduate students this is not always the best option. While there is plenty of time to enjoy some fun in the sum, time management is extremely important, especially in the summer. Below are 3 tips to help you manage your time effectively so you can be at your academic best when school starts again in the fall.
  • Read Peer Reviewed Articles. Summer is a great time catch up on the relevant literature in your field. Head to the library and find the most current issues of the big journals in your field. They make some great poolside reading.
  • Update your Curriculum Vitae. Use some down time to polish your curriculum vitae or resume. Head to the career center for advice on formatting (http://www.ndsu.edu/career/).
  • Learn a New Statistic Technique. Use this summer to hone your SPSS skills, or teach yourself how to do a Poisson Regression. Learning something new will make you feel accomplished!
