Learning the rules of Las Vegas

in
Aswell, Taylor.jpg

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Or at least that is what the commercials say. That’s the idea of Vegas the city wants people to embrace. They want people to come to Vegas, lose their inhibitions and have a great time, all the while making sure people know the only place you can talk about crazy Vegas antics is in Vegas. It’s a way to create a unique bond with a city paralleled only with our neighbor to the south, New Orleans.

This election is dog meat

in
Gallagher, Maggie.jpg

The Democrats’ war on women meme is failing.
If you read between the lines of the April 17 poll from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, you can see it’s President Obama, not Gov. Romney, who has reasons to fear a growing gender gap. (This may be why Obama disavowed the meme and slapped back Hilary Rosen’s mean-girl words to Ann Romney.)

Man comments on alcohol, sales tax

in

I commend Choudrant High School for their mock crash they put on for the benefit of their fellow classmates and everyone in attendance. It was a startling representation of what can happen when students drink and drive.
I also want to commend Dr. Tommy Grafton, head of Partners in Prevention, for putting on these mock crashes and also setting up those silhouettes along I-20 which show deaths resulting from drinking and wrecking families.
I commend Mayor Dan Hollingsworth for his leadership and foresight and Christian convictions. But I don’t commend him for his weak compliance with alcohol consumption.

Tech students make dresses from duct tape, magazines

042012 Tech Merchandising C.jpg

Several groups of merchandising and consumer studies students in Louisiana Tech’s School of Human Ecology recently participated in a unique class project where they used only duct tape and magazines to design wearable dresses.
Students in a product development class were given an assignment to design a wearable garment using only duct tape and magazines. The garments were designed on a dress form, but had to come off the form and be worn by a person. The students worked in teams and were given just three hours to complete the design.
