|49 min 55 sec ago||I go to Hawaii almost every||
I go to Hawaii almost every other year. Maui is a good choice for a first timer as they really gear towards tourists. For Maui, I prefer Wailea area as you have better weather there than north (Kaanapali, Kapalua). There are some nice snorkeling areas off the public beaches and a lot of turtles hang out there. You can always go on tours to Molokini and a visit to the aquarium is a must.
I prefer the Big Island as it is more raw and climate/terrain is more diverse. The night snorkel to watch the giant rays feed is the single greatest nature experience I have ever had.

25% to 30% decrease is pretty drastic.
What is really awful is that he uses overall numbers for state aid, but uses per student numbers for costs. He is comparing apples to oranges.
Apples to apples comparison would have been bad enough, but he is using intellectually dishonest slight of hand here and that is embarassing.

His math is terrible. He just glosses over the fact that per student spending has drastically decreased over the years and just posts the fact that overall spending has increased (due to being there are more students!).
This is really a very very bad analysis. I am embarassed that a UM alum wrote it.

How is this even a question?
There is absolutely no relationship between Gary or Jaylen committing. Why put up such arbitrary question? It would be worth asking if they were going after the same position in same sport or we only had one scholarship left and we can only take one. That I can understand.
I want both. Everybody wants both. There is no question.

So far, I had been okay with the TV changes since most of them were done with expediency in mind.
HOWEVER, this change with Sansa marrying Ramsey is just too much. Hasn't this girl gone through enough already? Do we really need to pile on some more?
I really do not like this.

I guess I am the only one who knows about academic scandals at UNC, Syracuse, etc... and everyone knows Kentucky basketball players go to real classes.

They are STUDENT-athletes. If this benefits their academic quest, I don't know why there is even any debate.
I worked 20 hours or so during my years at Michigan and it was very difficult to juggle my time. I can't even imagine how you can do it with 40 hours.
Peppers ended up getting a redshirt year. I don't see people talking about how his career is ruined now.

I am all for it. If you really are serious about the student-athlete thing, this is a must.
There are enough things for freshmen to adjust to. Not making them travel all over the country would be a good thing.
This would also force those who view college as nothing more than a stopover from coming.
This is a win-win.

It is not a meteor, it is a space ship. Based on the fact that it looks like it is largely intact, you can deduce that it received a critical damage, tried to land on the nearby planet, but did not have enough power to land safely.
And you can trust me, I have an aerospace degree.

Pads are fine, just get rid of hard shells. Soft helmets and pads would reduce a lot more than just concussions.

I would be very comfortable if Shane starts for the Utah game.
The numbers were not great, but with assembled OL and WR's dropping passes everywhere, I thought Shane made pretty good decisions and his balls were on the money for the most part. I have no problems with him starting, Rudock or no Rudock.

NCAA cannot monitor the quality of education. That is what accreditation organizations are supposed to do. NCAA must hold UNC accountable for mis-representing the education it was providing, but it does not owe these former students anything.
If we want to be angry, we should be angry at the accreditation organization for not punishing UNC harshly for this fraud to discourage this kind of behavior from other universities.
This issue goes WAY beyond athletics.

NCAA's requirement is that the athlete is a student in good standing.
It is up to the individual college to make sure that they are providing good education.
NCAA does not have the responsibility to make sure colleges are doing their job. That is what accreditation organizations are supposed to do.

That is why you have accreditation.

The key is they REACT to academic violations. They do not send out inspectors to actively monitor academic compliance. That is what accreditation organizations are supposed to do.
As the article states, you do not sue AMA for a doctor's malpractice, even though it is AMA that sets the guidelines. The same applies here.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||That is not what this lawsuit||
That is not what this lawsuit is about. This is a lawsuit from former student athletes that are saying it is NCAA's fault that they did not receive a proper education. That is not NCAA's job.

Seriously, how is this even a question? It is like asking whether who I would rather see win the lottery; my brother or my neighbor.

You paid for those shampoo packets and tiny soap bars. It is part of the service that a hotel provides. Ceiling tiles are another story.
|7 weeks 22 hours ago||This deal is available to||
This deal is available to everyone.
It is called Interenet Plus (Double Play) from Comcast. (go here http://www.comcast.com/cable-internet-packages.html and expand to see ALL packages).
It includes Limited Basic, HBO, and Streampix (and WatchESPN), plus 50mbs Internet. Limited Basic is pretty much just local channels and Discovery, but I need it since there are too many trees in my neighborhood to get OTA signal (I tried many, many times).
I got it for $69.95. It looks like they have a special going now and have it listed for $39.99. That is a STEAL.
The only bad thing is that I cannot add BTN channel to this package (all upgrades require Basic Cable).

Living in Seattle, I am very familiar with Legion of Boom. What really makes the unit tick is not Richard Sherman, but Earl Thomas. If Jabril can do the kind of things that Earl Thomas does (which I believe he can) this defense will take a huge step forward.

That is not really any different than what I have with my Comcast deal. $75 gets me Internet, limited cable, watchespn, and hbo. I am just waiting for a B1G Network package.

Index funds are the way to go. Low fees and proven to be better than any stock picking over the long run. There is no better way.
