Our #1 Best-Selling Drone--Meet the Dark Night of the Sky!
So, much, hype. This trailer is 1:41 and it feels like its got 141 spoilers hidden inside. Hadn't seen it posted here yet, but its fantastic and this season looks awesome.
In today's Chicago Tribune, there's a headline with great news on student debt. Northwestern has decided that for students needing financial aid, they will now receive grants and scholarships instead of loans.
Northwestern University students who qualify for financial aid no longer will have to borrow to pay for their education, part of a plan announced Thursday to make the school more affordable and prevent students from being saddled with crippling debt.
Starting next fall, freshmen who ordinarily would have to take out loans will instead receive a combination of grants and scholarships, along with earnings from work-study and summer jobs, to cover their expenses. Current undergraduate students who already have $20,000 or more in loans will have that debt capped starting next fall, and receive a scholarship instead of having to borrow more.
Around half of all Northwestern students qualify for financial aid. Full-time tuition for undergraduates in 2015-16 is $48,624. Room and board, fees and average costs for books and personal expenses tack on almost $20,000 more.
This is great news for Northwestern students. I'd love to see Michigan move to doing something similar for qualified students. Back in the day (late 70's), my tuition, room, board, books, and fees for a year at Michigan were under 4k. I was able to pay for school between a few grants, scholarships, work-study, and summer jobs. That is completely impossible now. In today's environment, I wouldn't have ended up at Michigan. My daughter enlisted in the Navy several years back partially to avoid incurring student loans. I don't want to see great students turned away to lesser schools just because of the financial cost.
In honor of National Pancake day we can all share where we had our best hotcakes at. Whether that be a chain restaurant, greasy spoon or anyone else. For me it's a tie between the pancakes from scratch my grandma used to make and the ones from the Original House of Pancakes..... Mmmmmmm! Pancakes!
Maybe it was from your motorcycle as you listened to K-Log and drove down a runway next to an F-14.
Maybe it was chasing your girlfriend who had a REALLY awesome and badass Porsche
Maybe it was on a work trip to Germany on the unrestricted Autobahn. What's the fastest you've ever driven? Was it legal? What was the fastest car you've ever driven? We did a biggest/most powerful/etc. a while ago, but let's hear about the need... the need for Speed!
I am in the market for a new gas grill and was hoping the board could provide some recs.
Only criteria: I will likely use it once a week or so in the summer, so would like to keep the price below $500. I don't really need bells and whistles, but I do want something sturdy that won't rust out within a couple seasons.
Will ask Tom Herman for advice on any subsequent grill purchases.
