Prof. Jane DeRose Evans testifies in favor of the MoU for Cyprus before the Presidential Cultural Property Advisory Committee

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Prof Evans testified yesterday in Washington, DC on behalf of the extention of the Memorandum of Understanding to impose import restrictions on Cypriote antiquities into the United States.  The bilateral agreement between Cyprus and the United States lasts for five years, and Evans noted the dangers of looting to the national security of the US, as smugglers do not specialize in antiquities, but use the smuggling networks to move arms, drugs and humans as well as antiquties.  She wanted to especially bring to the attention of the advisory committee the special vulnerability of coins, which are found using metal detectors (the use of metal detectors is highly regulated on Cyprus, as in most antiquities-rich countries).   Looters searching for coins destroy important information about entire sites, leading to the loss of the knowledge of not only the history of Cyprus, but all human history.

Tyler Carnival Is a Major Success

Author: Kylie Doyle

Once per year, Tyler throws a celebration to reward the students and faculty for their hard work throughout the semester by bringing in rides, free food, and games open to anyone who walks through the doors! Every year brings something different to the students, and this year was no exception to the rule of excellence. Despite the event taking place inside for the first time since its inception due to an overwhelming expectation of heavy rain, the turnout was bigger, and the food was even more plentiful! Mini funnel cakes, a DJ, cotton candy, free junk food, inflatable rides, (and the highlight of the evening: A mechanical bull!) were all available for the carnival-goers to enjoy from 1PM to 4PM. Students filled the halls of Tyler to enjoy what the carnival had to offer. The day was bright and sunny and the atmosphere was energetic despite the beginning of finals. Read More
