In 2012 more than 1.6 million people in the United States were diagnosed with cancer. This year, one Utahn is wearing out his tennis shoes to make that number go down.
Utah Runner Landon Cooper is running over 3,000 miles to raise awareness and funds for sarcoma cancer research. Cooper said part of what keeps him going is devoting every run to what he calls, a warrior.
Officials with Kennecott Utah Copper say a landslide that they’ve been anticipating for months has happened in Brigham Canyon Mine. UPR’s Brianna Bodily has more on the condition of employees, and precautions Kennecott took to avoid injury.

Gulls have invaded the eastern edge of the Utah State University campus near the Living Learning Community residence halls and Old Main Hill. And they’re causing problems for LLC residents like Anne Toller, Kimberly Lamping and Caitlyn Chamberlain.

The Board of Directors of the Cache Valley Center for the Arts (CVCA) is pleased to announce the appointment of James D. Kreutzberg as its Executive Director beginning July 1, 2013.

Late last month, the US Interior Department finalized a new set of rules pertaining to Oil Shale and Tar Sands development on federal lands.
A new ruling by the Department of the Interior means that 680,000 acres of BLM land in the west will be available for leasing for research and development of oil shale, and nearly 130,000 acres will be opened up for testing tar sands production in Utah.
Those numbers are much lower than first planned, when rules on oil shale and tar sands leases were crafted in the waning days of the Bush Administration.
A massive open online course, or a MOOC for short, has come to the USU campus: or rather, to the entire world.
The MOOC USU is offering is ITLS 5245/6245, Interactive Multimedia Production. The graduate-level class is being taken by hundreds of students and non-students in the U.S. and other countries across the globe.
The MOOC is not for credit and is completely free, but this could pose problems for the course in the future. Andrew Walker of the instructional technology and learning science department at USU is the instructor for the MOOC.
