Slices of Life: In Search of fitness

Slices of Life: In Search of fitness

    By: Jill Pertler     I’m seeking fitness. Again. You haven’t seen him, have you? It’s a recurring theme in my life. I seek fitness. I find fitness (sort of). Time passes. Fitness, fickle friend that he is, hides from me, and the game begins anew. Olly olly oxen free! When things first begin to slide, I attempt to ignore the circumstances by pretending fitness is still in the room right by my side. Then I opt for the position that fitness is ... Full Story

A Technology World

  By Daris Howard   I had been grading papers all day, and I was exhausted. As the work day ended and I left my office, it felt good to step out into the fresh air. I decided to take a longer route to the parking lot to see if I could clear the cobwebs from my head. As I turned the last corner, about 100 yards from where I was parked, I joined a couple of young men who were coming from the lower part of campus. Their clothes were rough and their appearance unkempt. They ... Full Story

“Son of Stim”

“Son of Stim”

          The President's "Jobs Plan" calls for another $400 billion dollars in BORROWING. Yes, that's what you call it when you spend money now and say you'll pay for it somehow over the next ten years. Oh, and by the way, exactly how does having workers and employers NOT pay into Social Security stimulate the economy? Isn't Social Security going broke one of the major concerns causing insecurity in this economy? And how again does increasing ... Full Story

Slices of Life: There’s an app for that

Slices of Life: There’s an app for that

    By: Jill Pertler   I come from a generation where an application was something you filled out when you wanted a job. TV (all five channels of it) was in 2D. Phones were unitaskers and could hardly be described as smart. Times have changed. At least they are changing at my house. This week, we got our first smartphone – which, by logical inference, makes us a “smartfamily.” Or, since the phone belongs to my husband, maybe he’s the smart one. ... Full Story

And third, he is in Georgia."—Author and journalist Amy Goodman There is nothing moral or just about the death penalty—certainly not the way it is implemented in America, and anyone who says otherwise is either deluding themselves or trying to ...
