Hale led Covenant Academy in Macon to a 1-9 record in 2012, and coached Wildwood in Florida to a 2-9 record last season.

This the best that could be hired ? I know we have one board member that has always pushed football before education, omg. Really ?!?
But then again, the Oglethorpe County Board of Education wants to cut the Fine Arts program which stands a better chance of actually improving students college chances and furthering their careers than the football program ever would !!

But it’s also a technology that was pushed forward by a community of people who were unprepared or unwilling to deal with even the basics of everyday business. A new wave of entrepreneurs may bring the digital currency a new level of respectability, but over its first several years, bitcoin has been driven largely by computer geeks with little experience in the financial world.posted @ Monday, March 3, 2014 - 10:04

@jzigglerzdog: You have your opinion and I have mine ! I have been following the Bitcoin issue for over a year so I'm not ignorant of how it operates.
How many people have lost Bitcoins worth millions of dollars ? Are you saying this has never happened ?
At least this parrot can see through BS so far.
Not saying that in the future some cryptic currency won't be viable, but the Mt.Gox incident has shown that the open source, hackable crypto-wallets are not ready for wide use. as yet. In the future, it will become regulated like everything else, because the gov't won't allow it otherwise.

"But the community is rallying behind Bitcoin very heavily in response"
They don't want it to fail as a lot of people have invested into it and would lose millions if it fails. Bitcoin has been referred to as a high level Ponzai scheme to keep it going. They have to keep it going or else.
One thing that has always raised a huge red flag for me is that the programmer( of Bitcoin are unknown. The code supposedly has been checked, but you have always heard that a programmer usually leaves a back-door into their program.

It has always been pushed that the Bitcoin wallets are safe and secure, but this has also been proven to false lately.
"David Duccini literally makes money. he has harnessed powerful computers to create Bitcoin" I would like to see a breakdown on the cost of mining. The rate you can mine Bitcoin has slowed dramatically and the cost to mine has gone up at the same time. When Bitcoin first started, a person with a household PC could mine effectively. Now it takes a special built $50,000+ computers then electricity to run them.

With all these extreme weather events or global climate changes, whether they are real or not, there is not enough long-term planning for the growing over-population to overuse the 1.2 percent freshwater. More man-made reservoirs or desalination plants need to be built as Atlanta or California will no longer be able to handle their growing needs.posted @ Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 08:39

@Meet_Joey_Black: Events of the past need to be refreshed in all our minds (especially younger generations) to be continuously on guard so that they don't happen again. You have people denying that the Holocaust never occurred in WWII, but it did and we have to be aware the it's never allowed to happened again. Events/laws that have taken place within our own country within the last decade should be/are recognized are inroads to the lost of our personal freedoms and our personal information.
The NSA / gov't have done things that in the name of fighting terrorists as to accessing a lot of our personal information is a breach that has gone overboard, just as John Edgar Hoover Director of the FBI did in his time. History repeats itself and we have to make sure that certain things don't happen again !
The current "whistleblowers" that have exposed what our gov't has been doing, shows how quickly things can get out of hand. Some call them traitors, but they exposed the spying on our fellow nations / leaders and gathering of our personal information.
That can also be said for the new technology/programs/apps that most people use nowadays as they gather your personal info to sell/use as they want re:Facebook.posted @ Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 09:06
"Studies have not only shown correlations with academic performance, but show that the presence of African-American teachers can help reduce discipline problems and lower the number of African-American students placed in special education."
Maybe the NAACP needs to focus on parental guidance/home life to reduce discipline problems, it all starts at home ! Too many one-parent families and you can see the results now in the schools. When the kids don't have good examples at home to help further their reading and writing skills at a young age, it hurts them in the long run which is very hard to overcome even with the best teachers. The parent ( s ) have the sole responsibility for their child's behavior and learning from the start.
Basicly, you want the very best teachers regardless of race to teach the students.posted @ Saturday, February 22, 2014 - 10:35
Ahhh….the owners, the liberal Koch brothers of Kansas, at work. They also own the local Invista (formerly DuPont plant) and nothing good can be said for companies they have bought out. Basicly, no more raises for most employees to recover their buyout costs - know friends & family that work at their plants.
Currently, Invista is moving what is left of their Apparel / Beaming operations to Mexico by middle of this year with probably an upcoming layoff then.posted @ Friday, February 21, 2014 - 11:21

TurboTax ! If you have used it for several years, it imports info from previous years. Fill in the blanks or electronically import your info (W-2,401k,etc) if available. Answer the questions and it will usually find all the tax breaks you are due, plus it does a tax audit risk analysis before filing. Then refund is paid directly into your bank account is the fastest way to get the IRS to pay up, averaging 7-10 days. If you have to pay then schedule it for April 14 or push it to the 15th lol.posted @ Thursday, February 20, 2014 - 09:47

Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
