Utah's Pioneer Day

News Body:
Each year on July 24th the state of Utah celebrates Pioneer Day in which we commemorate the first pioneers to enter the Salt Lake Valley. As part of those celebrations, All Independence University staff members living in Utah have the day off. That does not mean you will not receive any help should you attempt to contact the school, it just means that our normal rapid service may be slightly delayed. Rest assured, however, that we endeavor to help you as quickly as possible and we will have staff on hand for key positions like IU Help and Student Tech Support. Further, all faculty and Associate Deans will also be available to answer your questions.

Newsstand Spotlight: Vancouver Sun

News Body:
Vancouver, British Columbia, home to this week's ProQuest Newsstand spotlight, is the largest Canadian city on the west coast. The Vancouver Sun was first published in 1912 and through Newsstand we have access to all the full-text articles starting in 1987. Different from most Western newspapers where the Sunday edition is one of the top selling papers, Vancouver Sun publishes on a six days a week schedule of Monday to Saturday Due to the high Asian population within Vancouver, the Sun is also published in Mandarin Chinese with original content.
