The partnership has expanded to include additional services such as grants, committees and participation in the Content Networks. OVEC collaborates with the CEHD on facilitating teacher recruitment, leadership initiatives, and faculty research efforts.

Craving ribs? Try avocado
If you feel like dining on ribs or pork sausages, chances are your taste buds would be happy with something else that is fatty, so go for plant foods that are loaded with fat, such as avocados (13 grams of fat in 1/2 avocado) or macadamia nuts (a whopping 21 grams of fat in a 1 oz. serving—more than ribs). The good news is that fats found in plants are healthy and unsaturated.
