The first show of 2015 features an announcement from an Aggie legend and a story of overcoming more than a mountain on the way to the X games. We also look at how Utah State embraced Martin Luther King Jr. day.

Self-Absorption
“All social etiquette regarding the use of phones in company seems to have disappeared. The device takes precedence over the person that is present, and that felt wrong. It is a form of rejection and lowers the self-worth of the person superseded for a device. I feel it also highlights a growing sense of self-absorption in people as they would rather focus on their world in their phone, rather than speak to the person they are with.” 
 
—Babycakes Romero, British photographer, on his new photo series, “The Death of Conversation,” documenting obsessed smart phone users, “What your smartphone addiction actually looks like,” The Washington Post, October 2014. Image: Babycakes Romero
