Traditional colleges/universities have outdated business models. They have lost focus on teaching to the majority, and instead are spending exhorbitant amounts on unnecessary faculty/facilities/classes to keep up their reputation. Many schools can't compete in this arms race, as they continually raise tuition each year to cover the costs...so as a result they have no choice but to change or die.
Here in NYC (and other major cities), institutions like Flatiron School, General Assembly, Metis, FullStack Academy, etc are gaining in popularity, with new competitors popping up all the time. They teach relevant courses for today's in-demand tech jobs (web development, data science, product management, etc), at a fraction of the price and time needed for an advanced degree.

I will be volunteering/safari'ing in the Serengeti while the ND and Miami (NTM) games are played. Anyone know of any M-friendly pubs in Arusha?

Isn't she married to Mike Comrie?

There are many Brooklyn residents like myself that have been eyeing the Islanders situation over the last year or so, and quietly hoping they would move to Barclays. As a die-hard Wings fan, I would attend many games (maybe even season tix), and happily embrace them as my "Eastern Conference" team. There are many young professionals from out of town now living in Brooklyn - I think this demographic, in addition to the existing LIRR fans will be a huge base of support for them. I think the enthusiasm will return in a big way.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||I made the mistake||
of going to all 3 NYC Michigan bars last Saturday.
1st was Brother Jimmy's - I got there around 7:30. It was way too crowded in the bar area and impossible to get beers, so I walked over to Ainsworth, supposedly the new hot sports bar in Grammercy / Union Sq.
2nd Ainsworth - Unfortunately they had velvet ropes and a guy wearing a suit rejecting anyone that wasn't on a reservation list - even if you just wanted to hang out at the bar (WTF?).
3rd Prof Thoms. So I made a mad dash over to Professor Thom's and crammed my way in near the entrance. It was incredibly crowded, though fortunately was able to get beers due to my lucky position near the bar. I left just before halftime and went back to Brooklyn to watch the second half at my local bar.
So I understand that Bro Jimmy's and Prof Thoms are going to be crowded drunk-fests like Duffy's et al - but WTF with Ainsworth? Reservations only? And what happened to the Brooklyn bar? I know Pub One closed, but i'm sure there's more out there that would accomodate us? Argh, maybe i'm just getting too old for this....Also, get off my lawn.

I haven't been this excited about a freshman walk-on since Mike Kaselitz.
Seriously though, despite the fact that he probably will never see any meaningful action, i've heard good things about him - smart, good size, good all-around kid.. Great to have him aboard - hopefully he can at least lead the scout team and help prepare the defense each week..

I was once apprehended by Allen Jefferson of the Detroit Police Department during the summer of 1996...while hanging out in a deserted park late at night drinking beers with some h.s. friends. I still think the fact that I recognized him and started blowing smoke up his ass is the reason we got off so easy - they seemed ready to make an example of us

|3 years 26 weeks ago||Pub One||
is the Brooklyn bar on Front St. I dropped in last Friday to scout out the place, get to know the bartender/waitresses, etc. All in all, good spot with good food and beer selection. The staff is very friendly, and there seems to be plenty of TV's up front - my only concern is the size of the place. Not sure it could hold anywhere near the Bro Jimmy's or Prof Thom's crowds....
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Also - the NYC Alumni Club has added||
Pub One in Brooklyn as an official gameday bar. In Dumbo, right under the Brooklyn Bridge. Never been, but hear the food is pretty good.....I hope to see fellow MGoBrooklyners there..

|3 years 49 weeks ago||first of all,||
i don't see how comments on the Fab 5 can translate to being 'political.' i tend to agree with 'some' of Beckmann's political views, yet i in no way share ANY of his moronic and misinformed opinions on the Fab 5.
i still say fire him though...
