AESE announcement - It’s time to submit the forms to nominate noteworthy publications and exceptional individuals in publishing for the annual Association of Earth Science Editors (AESE) awards. This year we have pushed the deadline forward a bit—to May 15, 2017—for submitting materials to be considered. This earlier deadline will give the committee enough time to read and judge the submitted publications before this year’s annual meeting in Yellowknife, NWT (September 6–9, 2017), where the winners will be announced at the Awards Banquet.
Mark your calendars! The 2017 annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors will take place in Yellowknife, N.W.T., September 6 to 9, 2017. Yellowknife is well known for its former gold mines and more recently for its diamond mines. It is also a world-class location to observe well-preserved geological features and formations from the Late Archean Era. Many geological features, including pillow basalt, glacial striae and permafrost features, can be seen right in town. We hope that you will take some time to enjoy the region’s many natural attractions, including its geological diversity, while attending the meeting.

As with most STEM majors, students are faced with the quandary of which concentration they should choose. In the latest installment of the "Ask Anthony" series form the American Society of Civil Engineers, Anthony Fasano P.E. gives students advice on questions he receives most. Specifically, he looks at how choosing a specialization both at the bachelor's- and master's-level may affect their careers.
