CTU among handful of U.S. universities to offer advanced degree in this evolving field

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Colorado Technical University (CTU), a leading provider of education for career-motivated students, has launched a new Master of Science in Homeland Security degree that addresses the evolving and advanced skills required for professionals to help prepare and protect the nation and our local communities from terrorism, natural disasters and public health emergencies.

CTU is one of only a handful of universities in the world to offer a master’s degree in homeland security online. The specialized CTU Master of Science in Homeland Security curriculum is designed specifically for aspiring leaders in homeland security professions such as law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, public health, security and critical infrastructures. The innovative content provides an understanding of key strategies, policies and constitutional issues, as well as providing the analytical and communications tools to help prepare students to be true thought-leaders in their chosen area of expertise. It also is designed to expand students’ knowledge of other homeland security sub-disciplines, including cyber security, law enforcement, fire, emergency services and public health.

“The advanced degree program allows students to hone their critical thinking, research and communication skills to help advance in their existing organizations, agencies or companies or to move into other careers within the new and developing field of homeland security,” said Nadav Morag, Ph.D., CTU University Dean of Security Studies, a published author on terrorism, security strategy and foreign policy. “Our coursework is designed for high-level thinkers who will learn to solve complex programs and make strategic policy.”

By Ed Duffy

 

After Deborah Key retired, she wanted to come up with a way to cover the cost for heatlh insurance, which she no longer was getting from work. What started as a part time activity soon evolved into a retail store and a new business venture.

Deborah retired from School District 11 in 2007. Soon afterwards, she and her husband Jim (owner of Sealed Coat Specialists since 1972) began hunting for re-sellable treasures at auctions and yard sales and such. They did well enough that they put aside some of their earnings and used it to open up New 2 You neighborhood bargain store at Maizeland and Academy Blvd in May of 2012.

New 2 You features quality merchandise, most used, some new. Items include tools, furniture, jewelry, housewares, collectibles and holiday items. They also have their own line of soaps, bodywash and lotions, which they make right at the shop.

The merchandise comes from a variety of sources, including public auctions and liquidations. Liquidation sales can include returns, but also new merchandise that has been pulled from shelves of stores like Home Depot because it’s last year’s model, a discontinued item or the package has been damaged. They don’t buy from individuals at the shop. It’s just not efficient given their business model.

Not everything they buy is fit for resale. When you buy at auction sometimes you’re buying blind or you buy a “lot” of items, incuding some good, some not so good. When they do get items that are usable, but not store material, they’ll sometimes set it out in front of the shop with a “FREE” sign on it. Deborah explains, “Someone in the neighborhood gets something they need, and we don’t have to pay to have it removed.” 

Deborah says she’s having more fun than she ever imagined at her new job. She gets to work with sister-in-law and store manager, Cheryl Murdoch, meets new people daily and gets to be her own boss. She also gets to help out folks in the neighborhood who want/need nice things at affordable prices (and sometimes free).

So if you’re looking for some unique gift ideas this holiday season, or you just like bargains, a trip to New 2 You can save you money while supporting a local, indendent, small business. You’ll find them at 3960 Maizeland Rd, Colorado Springs. You can reach them at 719-591-1877. Hours are from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday, 9am to 6pm Saturday and noon to 5pm Sunday.

Press Release (City of Colorado Springs)

In October, the League of American Bicyclists recognized the City of Colorado Springs with a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) award for its City Administration Building (CAB) located downtown at 30 S. Nevada Ave. The CAB facilities provide employees access to showers, lockers, bicycle lockers, secure bicycle parking and a wellness program with rewards for physical activity.

When employees bike they become healthier, reduce heath care costs, connect to community and save money. The City joins a group of close to 500 local businesses, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies across the United States incorporating bicycling into the American workplace. In fact, it was earlier this year when Colorado Springs Utilities was awarded the first BFB in Colorado Springs that the City recognized their opportunity to apply.

Currently, the Colorado Springs community is ranked a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community. To help reach the next level, we challenge other Colorado Springs businesses to also apply to the free BFB program at bikeleague.org/businesses.
