22 hours ago - Larry Stambeck Jr. woke to sudden, sharp pain on a September morning in 2016. He shifted around on his extra-large twin bed in East McNair Hall. Ouch. Maybe he had slept funny. Maybe he pulled something. Maybe it would go away on its own? I’ll give it a few days, he decided. A week went by. The pain persisted. He felt a couple of lumps, too. The #michigantech sophomore studying electrical engineering technology Googled his symptoms. Cancer, as it’s known to do, crept to the top of the list. Larry shrugged it off. Humor helped him express concerns tucked beneath the surface. “I told a few friends about what was going on, what I was experiencing. I remember joking, ‘I probably have cancer, haha!’” Eventually Larry scheduled an appointment to see a doctor. Blood work, x-rays, a CT scan. Swift action from a team of up-north #healthcare providers. All jokes aside, Larry, 20, had cancer. Testicular cancer. Read one Husky's story about classes, cancer, and chemo—and getting by with help from close friends.

Monday - Road and runway maintenance. Anti-icing and deicing. Mobility in snow—army tanks to snowmobiles. In-house engineers tackle the chilliest of problems at Michigan Tech’s Keweenaw Research Center. ❄️ . . . . . . With more than 250 inches of snow annually, the Keweenaw Research Center is ideal for cold-weather research. As Director Jay Meldrum puts it, “Besides our engineering talent, we have consistently lousy winter weather and remoteness, too—advantages many other test facilities do not have. We even test in the off-season. Some call that summer.” #michigantech #innovationshore #engineering #snowiestschool
