All of these chairs have participated in creating a strong historical community at Hope College, and I look forward to building on their achievements. I wanted to convey some of the priorities we have as a department over the next few years. One of our main goals is to be more intentional in helping our students think through their vocations, both as history students and in their lives beyond Hope College. We have always talked with students about how the skills of a historian—critical reading, clear writing, and thorough research—are building blocks for a wide variety of careers.

We are working on ways to have our students do more intentional reflection, both in the classroom and out, on the ways their historical training relates to their calling in life. Moreover, we want to help students find more opportunities to explore their calling through internships, job shadows, and independent research projects. At the same time, we want our students to see the study of history as valuable beyond building a career.
Historical thinking involves understanding the complexity of change over time as well as the importance of understanding multiple points of view. It makes us better citizens, community members and people of faith. During these stressful times, we hope our majors can bring much-needed historical perspective to understanding the challenges of our nation and world.
I hope you will read our blog over the next year and see the wide variety of experiences and ideas in which our faculty, students, and alumni are engaged. I would also like to put out an invitation to our alumni. If you have insights about the value of your history major or minor that you would like to share, please contact me. We would love to have you write a blog post for us.
You may be asking yourself at this point: what do you do as a historian?
Hope also provided me with the incredible opportunity to study abroad. I also spent a wonderful semester at York St. At the beginning of my sophomore year I declared as a history major and started my journey. The spring semester of my junior year, I took my Seminar class with Dr. The topic was the Civil War and Dr.
My final internship in the fall of was a turning point in my life. Ever since I was a kid, museums have been a point of fascination for me. Baer directed me towards the Gerald R. Ford museum. I was also very fortunate to work in the museum during a few exciting times. I had never worked in a museum, but my job went beyond just technical skill. This ability made the entire learning experience richer. This museum internship is a job that I will remember for a long time.
Ford and the American presidency. If you are in the Grand Rapids area, go check out the newly renovated Gerald R. It's not uncommon to see mixed tag matches, but the men and women don't actually wrestle each other. Two female wrestlers, Awesome Kong and the late Chyna, built careers competing against men, but they were also more physically equal to them in size and stature.
This powerful female portrayal in Lucha Underground is directly attributed to one of the show's executive producers, acclaimed filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. Rodriguez is the mastermind behind several blockbuster films including Machete , Spy Kids and Sin City. In a makeshift gym covered in graffiti that doubles as one of Lucha Underground's sets, Karlee Perez stands among several media members.
Despite her small stature, you can immediately feel her presence. Similar to her character Catrina, she dominates the room. Catrina is the prime example of a powerful female character in Lucha Underground. Starting as the valet for one of the show's biggest male wrestlers, Mil Muertes, she'd built her character into one of the faces of the company.
By season two, she was running the Temple. She wants to be in control. That's what turns her on is the power. After one of Catrina's prodigies scores a victory, you'll see her slink into the ring, hover over the defeated opponent and slowly lick his or her face. The gesture, which was Perez's idea, has been aptly named "the lick of death.
Everybody has seen somebody kiss. Not everybody sees a girl grab somebody and lick them while blood is coming down their face. Perez is no stranger to entertaining in the squared circle. She became very familiar with how the WWE booked female characters by spending time in the locker room after debuting on the main roster.
Maybe, maybe not. Hey, sweetie!

Thanks for the compliment! I just wish those sarcastic lowlives over at TMZ felt the same way.

Those idiots really need to grow up and get over themselves. They treat the majority of their news stories with such a snide, unprofessional attitude, and not once have they ever been cute or funny in the slightest on account of it. I defiitely plan on bookmark this blog of yours simply to see what else you can provide us with in the future. Kudos for developing this blog and giving people like me something to check out every now and then during the workday lull, and good luck in the future with it!
I appreciate you compliment. No pun intended, of course…lol. What a great article. I hope David McLane and Jeannie Buss take your advice into account, too, because you seem to have some pretty good ideas on how Women of Wrestling can improve for , and believe me when I say that I want WOW to succeed in very much the same way you do.
Well, then, good luck to you with the rest of this blog. I appreciate the feedback.

Until then, thanks for your support! Thanks for sharing! Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it. McLane at the mark when he announced that he and the rest of WOW management would indeed be bringing in some of the experienced women from the independent scene. Maybe a handful of the WOW women did i. Otherwise, thank you for your feedback.
I really appreciate it. Good write-up, bro. I actually learned somthing about this promotion just by reading this article. Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you writing this post. I hear WOW will begin hitting the airwaves this coming Saturday. Good riddance that THAT joke of a promotion.
I tip my hat to you, good sir. You truly deserve praise for your approach. I swear, Blance must me back in WOW, what with Caged Heat losing their WOW Tag Team Championships to a couple of glorified, randomly paired jobbers from the indies and that no-talent bimbo Lana Star squaring off against one of the new girls already for the WOW championship—which, by the way, Lana won back in against Terri Gold after Terri was forced to relinquish the belt after the company had folded the first time.
Needless to say, then, anyone expecting me to discuss Women of Wrestling ever again—at least positively —is only wasting his or her time. Good for you, Dustin! Here are my reasons for saying so. Just no excitement whatsoever. Say what you will about Ring of Honor and Lucha Underground, but at least ROH has been around the block for just over fourteen years and at least has a somewhat decent TV deal on Destination America, and LU has at least created enough buzz around it since its inception back on October 27, I mean, come on!
I honestly should have thought about that when I first wrote McLane back in March The more I think about it, the more I realize just how much of a missed opportunity that would have been for the federation back then with the inclusion of such a belt. Boy, do I feel ignorant now for not thinking of that until now!
