 Spring Cleaning

Spring is here and we’re getting ready to clean up inside our homes and to work outside in our lawns and gardens.  But all that lifting, climbing, trimming and other spring cleaning activities heighten the risk for home injuries.  According to the Home Safety Council (www.homesafetycouncil.org) there are over 10 million unintentional home injuries in the U.S. per year that result in visits to hospital emergency rooms.

On Wednesday, May 21st ITS will be performing extensive work on the IC web infrastructure which will result in a 2-3 hour downtime of websites and web services starting at 6:00 AM.

The main IC website, as well as myHome, myIthaca, and HomerConnect will all be unavailable during the downtime. While the normal IC website content will not be available, people who attempt to access www.ithaca.edu will be re-directed to a temporary web page that will provide direct links to the following major services:

  • Outlook email and calendar
  • The ACE page (access to HomerAdmin, Parnassus, Argus and Advance)
  • Sakai

All other Web services will be unavailable. We'll make every effort to have the work completed by 8:00 AM, but if complications arise the downtime may extend to as late as 9:00 AM.

Note that myHome is set as the default browser Web page on many campus computers, and will display a "page not found" message during the downtime.

Like any organization that deals with sensitive information, Ithaca College must be in compliance with a variety of security standards. To ensure this compliance, our security practices and policies are regularly reviewed by external auditors, and often result in recommended or mandated changes to our security practices. One such recommendation that the college as a whole has been asked to comply with is the enforcement of screen saver passwords on virtually all college-owned computers.

ENVS will hold the first-ever model solar car race on the Fitness Quad at 1:30 PM on Tuesday, May 6! Students in this term’s introductory Environmental Science and Technology class built miniature (approximately 8” wide by 12” long) solar-powered cars using guidelines set by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Solar Sprint event. Student teams chose their preferred design; their cars (each one unique in design, durability, and appearance) will race on Tuesday. About six cars will compete in each heat, with the top three cars advancing to the next round. A one-foot tall barrier will be built at the end of the course into which all the cars must crash. The fastest and most durable car will be pronounced the winner!
