When it comes to being the most prepared to become a teacher, Missouri State University students rank first among 28 schools in the state.
Students like Joe Shaughnessy are the reason why Missouri State University is ranked highest in the state for preparing its students to become teachers.
It's awesome to be a part of that because that number one shines when we go out and interview as well. They’re seeing that we come from Missouri State," Shaughnessy says.

“When we talk about first generation students, we tend to think of their deficits—the lack of academic preparation, the lack of finances, the lack of cultural capital—but I’ve found through working with them that there’s a sense of resilience and pride that they have,” says Darabi, who also was a first generation student. Overall, with these students, I’ve found that there’s a sense of ‘We can do this.’ At Missouri State, we work hard not to let our programs come out of a deficit model. We’re trying to make these efforts positive for them.”

"But the notion that the Turkish Armed Forces constitute a progressive force in the country is a gross misreading of history. A closer look at the military’s involvement in Turkish affairs — and its actions towards Islamists, Kurds, and leftists — demonstrates that it has been neither a progressive force for democracy nor a protector of “secularism.”"

“First of all, I think we must be clear that this research does not mean EPDs don’t work. It doesn’t even insinuate that EPDs don’t work,” said Jared Decker, a geneticist at Missouri State University in a blog post. “What it may mean is that the environment may be limiting the expression of an animal’s full genetic potential. If that is true, emphasis on selecting for increased weaning weight should be decreased, and selection pressure redirected to different traits.”
Based on surveys of commercial cattle producers, Decker is highly suspicious that the majority of producers are using EPDs at all, and if they are using them, the question is if they are using them appropriately.

Local health departments are using their own resources to boost mosquito prevention efforts, as Congress remains split over a funding bill to boost preparation and research for the Zika virus.
Most preparations are well practiced after years of dealing with West Nile: health departments set traps, spray for mosquitoes, and encourage residents to wear long-sleeves and insect repellent.

Starry nights light up 417-land locations, and in late July and early August, look for an extra treat in the form of the Perseid meteor showers, which streak through the skies each year. For ideal viewing conditions, seek out locations as far away from cities or large towns as possible to avoid light pollution.

There is too much trivia on the campaign trail. A plethora of promises and policy proposals reveal very little of how future presidents govern in practice. There is no résumé for president. The real measure of presidential timber rests in the person, and that’s hard to assess from a campaign stump speech. One indicator that would give great insight into how great a president might be—whether they are the right leader for these times—would be getting a sneak peek at their bookshelf (or their Kindle).
Here are six books that ought to be on the next president’s bookshelf. If they are not, the candidates ought to read them while they’re out on the campaign trail—and leave them conspicuously by their plane seat. A thumbed-through copy of these reads would send strong signals that the nation’s leader is rightly focused on the nation’s challenges—and thinking about how to make America prevail and soar over a troubled world.
#4 is by Missouri State's Keith Payne.
4. The Great American Gamble: Deterrence Theory and Practice from the Cold War to the Twenty-First Century, Keith B. Payne.
No presidential responsibility carries greater weight than that of the commander and the steward of America’s nuclear arsenal and missile defense forces. Frankly, neither of these key components of America’s strategic defense are in the best of shape.
It is harder to find anyone smarter on these issues than Keith Payne, professor and head of the graduate department of defense and strategic studies at Missouri State University, who served as the Department of Defense as the deputy assistant secretary of defense for forces policy. And it is hard to find a better primer than this 2008 book on how to think about nuclear weapons policy in the twenty-first century.
