Miso pastes is a traditional Japanese seasoning produced by fermenting soybeans with salt and the fungus Aspergillus oryzae, known in Japanese as kōjikin. Negi and tofu, a strongly flavored ingredient mixed with a delicately flavored ingredient, are often combined.
Sweet Mochi is Japanese sticky rice cake used both in savory and sweet dishes. Mochi is usually made from sweet rice (also called Mochi rice) cooked and pounded until it becomes a paste that is very sticky and smooth, then formed into cakes or blocks. It is often eaten in New Year.

Pavlis Honors College Angel Tree
This holiday season, the Pavlis Honors College is sponsoring a Salvation Army Angel Tree. If you are able to purchase a gift for a child in need, stop by room 722 of the M&M building to choose an angel tag off our tree. The tags contain the name of a child, their age and their interests. After purchasing a gift, attach the tag to it and return it under the tree. The Salvation Army asks that the gifts remain unwrapped. The last day to drop off a gift will be Dec. 11.
For many children in the Keweenaw, your gift may be the only one they open this holiday season. We are sponsoring 50 children this year and with the help of Michigan Tech faculty, staff and students, hope to provide all of them with gifts. Thank you for your generosity.

Book Drive to Support Community Center in Ghana, Africa
Pavlis Institute for Global Technological Leadership this past summer had the incredible opportunity to travel to Ghana, Africa to carry out numerous projects. Part of the experience led to a community center in a small town called Abesim. The Pavlis program has worked with this community center in the past, but the team felt that they should bring attention back to this incredible resource for students. One of the most unfortunate things about this community center is that it is etremely lacking in educational material for students achieving higher education. Therefore, as part of a Senior Capston Experience, Courtney De Cramer is working with the Ghana team that will be traveling to the country in the summer of 2016 to donate college-level textbooks to this community center. Therefore, they are running a book drive from December 7-December 19 to collect any college level materials for the team to bring on their journey. They will accept any and all donations. To donate or for questions please contact Pete Seim (email@example.com) or Courtney De Cramer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
