"Comedian Louis C.K. made headlines recently with his Tweets about Common Core. He brought the conversation into the mainstream arena after stating that his daughters used to like math, but Common Core curriculum made them cry. It's not the first instance of a child crying during homework, as you might imagine."--Heather Callaghan

Georgia jobless rate remains unchanged at 7 percent

"Don’t believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud."

"In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government."--Paul Bedard

What about delays and/or cancellations? Will the games be held in the Lindsey Hopkins indoor facility?

Community recognizes Athens' first graduating class of medical students

Athens campus is part of the GRU-UGA partnership
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_College_of_Georgia

"In 2010, the University of Georgia partnered with Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University (formerly Georgia Health Sciences University) to create a four-year medical education program in Athens to help alleviate a statewide shortage of physicians that in Georgia, as well as to increase research on disease prevention and treatment. The GRU College of Nursing also has a satellite campus in Athens, and the UGA College of Pharmacy has a satellite campus in Augusta. Georgia Regents University is the only public medical school in Georgia and one of four research universities."--Wikipedia

Ben Affleck caught counting cards, kicked out of Las Vegas casino

[quote][b]Used2baFreeCountry[/b] - Isn't a "card-counter" nothing more than a skilled-player who uses his intellectual ability to somewhat reduce the odds that are naturally in favor of the casino?
[/quote]

"...card counting is a technique used in blackjack to gain a slight advantage over the casino. All casino games have a built-in house edge that ensures you will lose at least some of your money when you play. The longer you play a casino game, the more likely you will lose. But with card counting, the odds can shift to the player's favor."--from http://www.blackjack-guide.net/how-to-learn-card.html

Card Counting is Illegal” and 4 Other Myths Casinos Want You to Believe by Colin Jones
http://www.billrini.com/2012/06/19/card-counting-illegal-4-myths-casinos...

"The most common gambling myth I have to debunk is the idea that card counting is illegal. Even some local police officers are in the dark on this one (yes, I’ve been mistakenly detained for card counting). But as long as using your brain is legal, no one will be doing jail time for simply counting cards. Where it gets complicated is that casinos have the right to refuse service to anyone they choose. So card counters get asked to leave, and can even be “trespassed”,meaning they have the right to arrest you for trespassing if you return to their property. However, the act of card counting is perfectly legal."--Colin Jones. He co-managed one of the largest blackjack teams in recent history, winning millions from casinos. Colin and friends now teach others how to play blackjack and count cards at www.blackjackapprenticeship.com.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
