Baghdad, Iraq – After five days of classes, Staff Sgt. Cara Duda stood in front of her peers at the Tree of Life chapel on Union III. She held up a manila folder – her values badge – with words she had used to describe herself only days before. Some words provided demographics – white, female, Catholic. Others showed roles or personality traits – mother, independent, passionate.
As she held up the folder, Duda spoke to the rest of the class about what she learned in the Equal Opportunity Leader’s Course.
The values badge is the first assignment students of the EOLC are given on the first day of the course and the last activity they revisit after completing the final exam.

American Heart Association reports Healthy Diet may reduce High Blood Pressure risk in Pregnancy-Related Diabetes
Dallas, TX – Women with pregnancy-related diabetes (gestational diabetes) are at greater risk of developing high blood pressure later in life; however, a healthy diet may significantly reduce that risk, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Hypertension.
Researchers studied 3,818 women with a history of pregnancy-related diabetes enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study II as a part of the ongoing Diabetes & Women’s Health Study. Over 22 years of follow-up, 1,069 women developed high blood pressure, which in turn increased their risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Greenbelt, MD – A powerful combination of observations and computer simulations is giving new clues to how the moon got its mysterious “tattoos” — swirling patterns of light and dark found at over a hundred locations across the lunar surface.
“These patterns, called ‘lunar swirls,’ appear almost painted on the surface of the moon,” said John Keller of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “They are unique; we’ve only seen these features on the moon, and their origin has remained a mystery since their discovery.” Keller is project scientist for NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission, which made the observations.
