1GenCyber camp at The Citadel inspires future cybersecurity professionals

In an effort to encourage local middle and high school students to pursue careers in the field of cybersecurity, The Citadel is hosting a weeklong summer GenCyber camp.

GenCyber is a program that provides cybersecurity camp experiences for K-12 students and teachers and is funded by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Science Foundation. The camp is offered to 20 students in grades 8-12 through a $63,367 grant provided to The Citadel by GenCyber.

2Richland deputy was killed in military combat. How a fitness event honors his memory

1st Lt. Ryan Rawl was killed by a suicide bomber in an Afghan market in June 2012 while serving with the S.C. National Guard. The attack killed another Lexington guardsman and more than a dozen civilians.

Though Rawl was killed thousands of miles from Richland County, Lott said they still consider his death a line-of-duty death. So in 2013, the sheriff's department began hosting the Ryan Rawl Memorial Event, in which teams of two take on a series of boot camp-style workouts followed by a run. The event, held every Fourth of July at the State House in downtown Columbia, is a nod to the good physical shape that servicemen and women have to be in, and honors Rawl and others who made the ultimate sacrifice serving their country.

3Every Citadel cadet must memorize and recite a Robert E. Lee quote. It's fake.

At The Citadel, every freshman cadet is required to memorize a quotation from Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee on the importance of duty. These words loom large in the quasi-military environment of the public college, mounted on plaques in each barracks. The quote echoes in the checkered quadrangles as upperclassmen demand their recitation from petrified freshmen, or knobs.

7A glance at the 2018 SoCon non-conference football slate

Which SoCon outfit has the toughest non-conference schedule? That’s not as easy to answer this season as it was last year (when Mercer played Auburn and Alabama). After taking the opposition, location, and schedule placement into consideration, I tend to give the nod to Furman. You could also make a case for The Citadel.

The answer to the question of who Chris Lemonis is, is a complex one which takes more nuance than looking at his record at Indiana.

1Serving those who served our country: Reducing the barriers to PTSD treatment

By Professor Alexandra Macdonald, Ph.D., The Citadel

Throughout my career in psychology, I have been lucky enough to be able to serve those who have served or are serving our country. Being in the military increases one’s risk for experiencing a potentially traumatic event, and there are estimates that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects between 11 to 20 percent of veterans and service members.

By Dr. Richard M. Ebeling, the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina.

The world may be on the brink of a series of trade wars between the United States and both the European Union and China. All the parties say they don’t want this — though President has asserted that trade wars are not a problem and easy to win. That remains to be seen!

Lee Winroth steps quickly to the mat. On the bar in front of her is 190 kilograms, which is about 420 pounds and nearly three times her body weight.

2The Intersection of Leadership and Community

Bo Cain first walked into Metanoia when he was a “NOB”, which is Citadel-speak for freshman. At the time, Citadel Junior Amber Mills was coordinating service projects with Metanoia. He remembers his weekly commitment seemed like a great chance to get off campus and get away from the whole “NOB culture” feeling but ended up meaning much more to him.

3Review: John Warley's book on The Citadel reads like an eloquent novel

As a cadet at The Citadel, my roommates and I had an ongoing joke about what the school might look like by the time our sons could attend. (That we assumed we’d have sons says much about us, but says something about the culture of The Citadel in the mid-1990s, too.) Would it be co-ed? Would it still be a military college? Would it even exist?

2. Into the Shadows: Intelligence, emerging threats and data analysis

Since the tragic events of 9/11, the United States has spent about $2.8 trillion on counterterrorism activities. Terrorism is a foreign as well as a domestic matter that requires robust response from many entities, including law enforcement and intelligence agencies. The Defense Post sat down with Michael Brady, a retired Lieutenant Colonel and former director of the Presidential Emergency Operations Center in the White House, to discuss intelligence gathering and challenges associated with it. In September 2017, Brady published a spy novel, Into the Shadows: The Fever, which provided insight into intelligence community operations and sacrifices made to keep the United States safe. The novel is the story of a career CIA non-official cover intelligence officer, Michael Brennan, and his work toward disrupting a scheme by Islamic State to introduce the deadly Ebola virus into New York City.

3. James Island mayor's words drip with venom, commissioners say

In a blistering letter between local governments, commissioners of the James Island Public Service District derided the town of James Island as "a paper town, providing no essential services" and disparaged the town's mayor while rejecting a proposal involving garbage collection. "The venom which drips from your every utterance makes any communication from your office suspect and suspicious," said the three-page letter to Mayor Bill Woolsey, signed by JIPSD Commissioners Bill "Cubby" Wilder, Sandi Engelman, Kay Kernodle and Donald Hollingsworth. The other three commissioners, including Woolsey's wife Kathy, did not sign the letter, which came in response to the mayor's criticism of a proposed JIPSD property tax hike. Bill Woolsey had also sent a proposal, suggesting the town could pay the district for garbage collection, and the district could then reduce the property tax paid by town residents.

How new NCAA rules on redshirts and transfers will impact Citadel, Charleston Southern football
Late in the 2016 football season, The Citadel coach Brent Thompson faced a dilemma. The Bulldogs, 9-0 and on the way to a second straight Southern Conference championship, were preparing for a stretch run that included rival VMI, ACC foe North Carolina and a first-round FCS playoff game. The problem: Thompson's triple-option offense was running out of slotbacks due to injuries. "With just 63 scholarships, you can run out of players at a position pretty quickly," Thompson says now. "We were trying to hold off playing true freshmen and burning their redshirts, and that made us dangerously thin. "The new rule could have saved us." The rule Thompson speaks of is the new NCAA policy, approved by the Division I council last week, that allows football players to participate in up to four games in a season without losing their redshirt year.

Military service academy football, quickly explained
Army and Navy square off in one of the most famous rivalries in college football, and both compete with the Air Force in the three-pronged Commander-in-Chief’s trophy race every season. But there are two other official branches of the military, plus whatever the hell the Space Force is. Together, they form a small slice of the college football ecosystem. And what about schools like Texas A&M and The Citadel? A&M, University of North Georgia, The Citadel, Virginia Military Institute, Norwich University, and Virginia Tech are senior military colleges. It’s like these schools have ROTC programs on steroids. They mirror a service academy experience at a regular school (particularly at A&M and Virginia Tech). That’s why you’ll see these guys and girls at Aggies home games.

1. Military Colleges Aim to Develop Cyber Programs
In an effort to address growing concerns over the looming skills gap, leading military colleges and universities in the US have moved to establish cyber institutes. Among the senior military colleges (SMCs) are The Citadel, the University of North Georgia, Norwich University, Texas A&M, Virginia Military Institute and Virginia Tech, according to Citadel Today. The Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which has been tabled for the fall, attempts to “authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2019 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes.” Congressional leaders are hoping to include within that act an amendment that authorizes the Secretary of Defense to establish cyber institutes at SMCs. Initiated by the University of North Georgia, the collaborative group of institutions has the support of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-South Carolina). The amendment, sponsored by Rep. Jody Hice (R-Georgia) was also included in the Senate Armed Services Committee FY19 NDAA, which is currently up for consideration on the senate floor.

3. Reading program provides learning opportunities for local students, teachers

Students and teachers alike are learning how to improve their skills this summer through one Citadel program. The Citadel Summer Reading Program offers tutoring services to K-9 students who are reading below grade level.

An “Identity Politics” Victory Would Mean the End of Liberty by Richard M. Ebeling
America started a “great experiment” in human history, that being the ideas of individual freedom and limited government. All of history before this assumed that the individual was subservient to the tribe, and governments had nearly absolute power over people in the form of ruling kings and princes. Today, again, there are counter-revolutions against this great experiment in human liberty. In China it takes the form of an asserted alternative to Western constitutional democracy that claims the superiority of an authoritarian model (on a Marxian foundation) under which political power is concentrated in the hands of one party and one leader. To assure “unity” and one over-arching plan for Chinese “national greatness” reclaimed, it utilizes a vast surveillance state that watches, controls, arrests, and imprisons or kills any and all who offer criticism, dissent, and resistance to Beijing’s “Big Brother” State.

1Senior military colleges push to secure collective national cyber institute

America’s Senior Military Colleges (SMC) worked jointly to address the escalating need for highly trained cyber operations and cybersecurity leaders. The colleges, which include The Citadel, the University of North Georgia, Norwich University, Texas A&M, Virginia Military Institute and Virginia Tech worked with their congressional leaders on an amendment authorizing the Secretary of Defense to establish cyber institutes at SMCs. The measure could accelerate the growth of the existing pipeline of disciplined, capable leaders educated by the SMCs for armed forces, Department of Defense and civilian cyber enterprises.

3The best answer to Trump's tariffs: free trade

By Richard M. Ebeling, BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel

In the Bible it says, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone . . .” It also has been said that the one who strikes the second blow starts any fight. If the world is to avoid trade wars due to tariffs being imposed by the Trump Administration, both the United States and its trading partners in Europe and North America should look within themselves and ask if they are blameless in their own trade practices, and if it would not be far better if everyone were to simply follow a policy of free trade.

2As Cincinnati Opera nears its 100th anniversary, collaboration is key

Cincinnati Opera has come a long way since it was a festival that presented four grand operas each summer in Music Hall. As America’s second-oldest opera company opens its 98th season this month, it is in the midst of a new vision that the company hopes will ensure its viability for maybe, well, another century.

Now, it is taking more steps. In December, Julie Grady Heard, formerly at Cintas and Huntington Bank, was hired for the newly created role of director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Joining her as artistic adviser is Metropolitan Opera bass Morris Robinson, who will star as Porgy in Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” in the 2019 Summer Festival. Besides his community appearances, Robinson will be closely involved in programming and casting. His marketing and sales background – skills honed when he worked in business after graduating from the Citadel in Charleston, S.C. – will help him to strategize the best way to build more diverse audiences for opera, he said.

As the state faces tough decisions each year to allocate limited resources, our colleges and universities are challenged to supplement annual appropriations with donor dollars.

U.S. Army Captain Jordan Dix is a Richmond native and a 2009 graduate of James River High School. He is on home for a 2 week leave and heard about Friday's event. His training with the Army Rangers led him to believe this is something he could do, and do well. But Dix missed the two qualifiers for this championship, and lobbied the event organizers to include him. Dix wrestled in college for The Citadel, and has completed not only Army Ranger training but an Iron Man triathlon as well. He has spent the last few days training at Elkins Sports Performance in Henrico with the express purpose of winning the title. The winner gets $25,000 and the title of best athlete on the planet.

4Is there such a thing as a hurricane-proof house? Sullivan Island dome home has no roof to blow off

When Huiet and Helen Paul lost their beachfront home to Hurricane Hugo in 1989 — just as they were finishing up a $175,000 renovation — they didn't just rebuild. They rethought. And the resulting product was a unique coastal home, a concrete dome that appears to bubble out of a sand dune. As hurricane season officially starts Friday, it remains to be seen whether this home and others along the coast might be put to the test.

Timothy Mays, a civil and environmental engineering professor at The Citadel, said there's no definitive listing of which South Carolina homes are built best to withstand storms, but the dome's aerodynamic shape and concrete construction are "awesome" as far as handling high winds.

Under the anxiety of a possible nuclear war in Korea, actual terrorist attacks in the Middle East and by seemingly “lone wolves” in other countries, threats of trade wars, and polarizing trends in politics in many places, the real underlying issue is and remains, how should people live together?
