News editor of The Signpost Individuals will spend 80,000 hours of their lifetime at work, estimated Paul Thompson, WSU president, at Thursday's Convocation. "The objective in finding a career is to discover one genius," or those things you enjoy and do well, he explained. President Thompson delivered Weber State's first Convocation speech of the school year, addressing the topic of expectations for the upcoming school year, falacies students may face in finding a career choice, and myths they may have about what area of education to pursue. "Students have a lot of questions about careers and education," he said. In his address, Thompson cited six myths students have about careers. "The first myth is that to be happy, I must get into the right profession such as medicine, law, etc. People in those professions are as unhappy as anyone else," he noted.- Second, he said students think that to be happy they must make a lot of President Thompson's Six Myths About Careers I must get into the "right profession," such as medicine or law. I must make a lot of money. I must rise to the top of an organization. I must please my parents and pursue the career they want me to pursue.

Convocations are every every Thursday at 10:30 in the AustadAuditorium. Ogden drug bust leaves man dead SHOOTOUT: Undercover police officer is in good condition after a hotel shootout with a reputed member of the Sundowners Motorcycle Club. Associated Press OGDEN - A suspect has died and an undercover police officer was in good condition Thursday following a shootout late Wednesday at an Ogden hotel when a drug deal apparently went bad, police said. Weber County Attorney Reed Richards said the shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m. shortly after two suspects entered a room at the Flying J Motel to buy a quantity of marijuana from the officer and an informant. One of the suspects entered the room with a drawn handgun, apparently intent on robbing the agent, Richards said. The man was critically wounded and died early Thursday. He was identified as Charles Kent, 41, Ogden. Richards said Kent was affiliated with the Sundowners Motorcycle Club and has a prior drug-related arrest. A man who answered the telephone at the Sundowners clubhouse in Ogden said Kent "Has nothing to do with us." The man refused to give his name. Richards did not know how the gunfire started, but said "there were a number of shots. He (the suspect) was shot several times." Undercover officer Pete O'Brien was wounded in the shoulder, but was in good condition Thursday at a local hospital, Richards said. The second suspect, identified only as Philip Catania, 21, Ogden. He was arraigned Thursday on two counts of aggravated robbery. Motel clerk Velvet Toothaker said she was in the lobby when officers carried the wounded agent in, prior to taking him to the hospital. "He looked scared, but they were telling him everything will be okay," she said. Toothaker recently moved to the area from California with her children to get away from the drug problem.

The next myth he cited that to be happy, individuals feel they must rise to the top of an organization. He said that does not guarantee happiness, but does entail stress, frustration and a lot of hours. To be happy I must please my parents and pursue the career they want me to pursue, and a career decision is so important it would be disasterous to make a mistake, were two other myths Thompson cited students sometimes believe. "All career decisions are correctable ... and unfortunately it takes years to find one's genius," he said.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
