Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
An Evaluation of the Climate Prediction Center’s Analog Forecasts During the 2020–21 Meteorological Winter
By matthew teare
Matthew Teare is a Meteorology major and Mathematics minor in his second year at Millersville University. He conducted his research as part of the McNairy Library
Research Fellows program under the mentorship of librarian Melissa Gold and professor Sepideh Yalda. His interests in anomalous weather and lesser-studied forecasting methods inspired his research on the Climate Prediction Center’s (CPC) analog forecasts during the 2020–21 winter season. He hopes that his project can improve analog-based weather forecasts by using that winter as a case study. His future goals are to explore nontraditional forecasting methods in order to further improve weather forecasts, with a focus in long-range weather forecasting.
