6A WEDNESDAY, JAN. 1, 2014 Jontana SIDNEY HERALD New guide, color .heel help Yellowstc,ne visitors identify microbes MSU NEWS SERVICE BOZEMAN -- A new nature guide from Montana State University and the Yellowstone Association helps visitors to Yellowstone National Park use color coding to identify which microorganisms might live in the park's hot springs. "Living Colors: Microbes of Yellowstone National Park" is a full-color guide that introduces the public to some of the tiniest residents of Yellowstone. An ac- companying identification wheel is also available and can be used by itself or to accompany the book. The products were created as an educational partner- ship involving the Yellow- stone Association, MSU's Thermal Biology Institute and the Montana Institute on Ecosystems. Both TBI and the Mon- tana IoE are involved in research that focuses on the critical role microbes play in human and natural eco- systems. However, despite Yellowstone seeing upwards of 3 million visitors per year, many of those visitors are unaware of the diversity of life around them. When visitors stand on a board- walk at Yellowstone, there may be more microbes in the soil beneath their feet than humans on Earth. YA offers numerous guides to Yellowstone wild- life, but it had no "wildlife guide" about the park's mi- crobes. Scientists represent- ing many disciplines such as microbial ecology, biol- ogy, chemistry, biogeochem- istry, molecular bioscience, and virology participated in creating the book and iden- tification wheel. Their goal was to educate the public about their research and to create an attractive and accessible guide to Yellow- stone's microbes that would appeal to tourists and older children. To purchase the book or microbial identification wheel, visit https://www. and search for "Microbes of Yellowstone" or visit any of the 11 Yellowstone Association bookstores in Yellowstone National Park or its store at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

"I'm thank- ful that the Associated Students of the University of Montana shared these concerns with me so that we could work together to find a solution that protects students' jobs and provides hardworking Montana students with relief from U.S. Rep. Steve Daines, R- Mont., has announced that he has introduced legisla- tion in direct response to University of Montana student concerns to protect Montana student jobs from cut hours due to Obam- acare's employer mandate. H.R. 3777, the Protect- ing Jobs for Students Act, protects student jobs by preventing reduction in hours or loss of employ- ment caused as a result of the Obamacare employer mandate. "Because of Obamacare's SPREAD rilE WORD! Smith, Lange & Halley, P.C. Certified Pu this misguided Obamacare mandate." The Associated Students of the University of Mon- tana recently contacted Daines with concerns about the potential reduction of student hours for on-cam- pus jobs as a result of the health care law employer mandate and its impact on Montana University System policies. The ASUM Senate passed a formal resolution affirm- ing their opposition to the "undue burden being placed on student employment by provisions" found in the Obamacare employer man- date and called on Daines to work toward a solution that would protect student employees from these provi- sions. "Because of this, many student employees will be forced out of their employ- ment and all students will now be prevented from working over 29.75 hours per week, per the new MUS policy put in place to the ACA provisions," ASUM President Asa Hohman wrote in a letter to Daines. "This will place an unac- ceptable burden on student employees who budget their finances around their cur- rent levels of employment. Considering the burden this will place on students, ASUM respectfully requests that you work with us to carve out an exemption for students to these provisions of the Affordable Care Act." Under Obamacare, students working more than 30 hours per week in part-time jobs potentially face reduced hours to avoid being considered full- time employees under the health care law. Daines' bill would protect these jobs for students by removing them from the definition of full- time employee as defined under the health care law. Specifically, Daines' bill would protect enrolled students who are participat- ing in Federal Work Study; employed as a requirement of their enrollment, degree program or scholarship or tuition reduction associ- ated with their enrollment; receiving credit at their school for the work, such as an externship or intern- ship; or are carrying at least a half-time class load and employed by the univer- sity.
