Relax people! They won't consider Chattanooga. You're beloved tax dollars are not going anywhere.
Hazing went on when I was in the band 26 years ago. I just didn't go to the bon fire where the hazing would take place. It's common knowledge that freshmen or new members get hazed at these events. Band Camp is at least chaparoned by band directors and parents. They are less likely to pull anything that would have to be explained the next day.
The original statement from the NHTSA said they wanted to ban all electronic communication devices except GPS units. That would mean that truck drivers could not use their CB radios and emergency response personnel couldn't communicate with their dispatchers. I think they need to rethink this recommendation. I agree with banning texting. I even agree with banning hand held communications but a hands free device is no different than having a person in the car talking to you while you are driving. Are they going to ban all verbal communication in the car because the driver might get distracted. That would mean I can't drive my four year old around anymore. He never shuts up!
I served on an education board for a private school and I've never been a teacher. I am a business professional and you need to have a mix of views and experiences to make it work. I have two children and I brought the perspective of not only how to run a business, which a school is, but the perspective of the parents and what they want for their childs education.
Start with her best friend or her boyfriend's house. That's where they usually head.
I wished America would pull the giant stick out of its a$$.
Does the answer to every problem have to involve a gun! It is possible to protect yourself against an unarmed assailant if you have basic self defense training. Even armed assailants can be stopped in their tracks without having to shoot a gun and risk killing an innocent bystander or yourself. Guns are wrestled away from their owners all the time. No point in arming a thug if you don't have to. Using the palm of your hand to drive his nose into his brain only hurts him.
I attend one of these online colleges. I am able to think more rationally than others in my department that have "brick and morter" degrees. They don't know the correct way to handle problems that come up. Yet, because I got my degree from an online division of this university instead of going on campus, my education is looked at negatively and I am not offered any hope for advancement.
This SUV is the worst piece of crap I've ever owned. There are serious design flaws in it. There are compliant blogs on the internet where owners are all complaining about the same defects no matter what year vehicle they own. I'm getting rid of mine ASAP before the thing blows up in my garage.
Equinox SUCKS! I have one and I can't wait to get rid of it.
