If there were a “Like” button for what I am about to tell you, I would click it and then when it gave the option to “Unlike,” I would click it, too.
I am about to leave for the rest of the summer, and I have to say it is a bittersweet feeling.
For the first month, I am going to be roaming exotic terrain in Cambodia in Southeast Asia and then for the remainder of the summer, I will be doing an internship in Lubbock, Texas.

For Brandon Newton, few introductions will be required when he begins his collegiate golf career at Louisiana Tech University.
He has known the Bulldogs’ head coach (Jeff Parks) a long time and he’s played the program’s home course (Choudrant’s Squire Creek) more times than he can remember.
So for Newton, joining the Western Athletic Conference team provides a perfect fit to continue an outstanding career that was recently capped off by yet another individual and team championship at the high school level.

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Two years after falling to Arkansas in extra innings in North Little Rock it was a repeat nightmare for Louisiana Tech, as the Bulldogs fell to No. 17 Arkansas, 6-5, in 10 innings in front of a sellout crowd of 10,512 at Dickey-Stephens Park Tuesday night.
The game was similar to the 2010 meeting between the two teams in the same ballpark when Arkansas nabbed a 5-4, 10-inning win over Tech.

Rising rate of C-sections may be bad

Cesarean sections used to be the last resort of doctors when a traditional delivery proved unsuccessful. In recent years, C-sections have surged in popularity with most states across the United States witnessing significant increases in the number of C-sections performed.
Cesarean sections have been a part of human culture for centuries. Though C-sections can be traced to ancient Greek mythology, the procedure remains largely shrouded in mystery, so much so that the origin of its name is still debated.

Prime Wellness offers help in meeting goals

Barbara Bryan went to LOTS to get better, but didn’t realize she’d get well to boot.

Everyone is so knowledgeable and helpful in teaching you the exercises and setting you up a fitness program. I work out four times a week and have dropped four sizes. I plan to continue. I love it there.”
