Culture carries UCLA women’s basketball into 4th straight NCAA tournament

LOS ANGELES — If it had been up to the players, UCLA’s women’s basketball team likely wouldn’t have played in the 2015 WNIT at all. The Bruins were 13-19, fed up from a frustrating season that included several blown late-game leads, and would have much preferred to be on spring break instead of running through practice drills. But it wasn’t up to them. “(The coaches) wanted to put the future of the program first,” said Kari Korver, a redshirt sophomore that season who is now in her first season ...

MS Gov Signs Strict Abortion Ban After Judge Rejected Less-Restrictive Law

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant on Thursday signed one of the strictest abortion laws in the nation — a measure that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, about six weeks into pregnancy. The New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights called the measure “cruel and clearly unconstitutional” and said it would sue Mississippi to try to block the law from taking effect on July 1. Bryant’s action came despite a federal judge’s decision last year striking d...

Linville Gorge: A Sparkle of Rekindled Joy

“It’s the closest you can get to God – a place where you can talk about all your hopes, fears, and dreams,” Dad said. That faraway gaze sprinkled with a sparkle of rekindled joy in his eyes was becoming more familiar these days as he reflected and reminisced of past memories – memories of a simpler time when laughter, friendship, and comradery was never in short supply, especially when in the presence of those whom did life together – a family in a sense. That family consisted of Dad and...

Playa Fly Crownin Me for Throwback Thursday

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we’re going to head to Tennessee. Back in the 90s, Tennessee had some of the best underground music. Taylor Boyz, Lil Milt, Kingpin Skinny Pimp and a few others were my favorites. The artist I’m featuring today is none other than Playa Fly. Playa Fly burst on the scene as part of the Three 6 Mafia. Not too long after that, Playa Fly split from the group. Playa Fly and Three 6 Mafia beefing with each other. With the two sides beefing, great music from both ca...

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

5 Clean Energy Blogs to Read in 2019

Clean energy is a powerful force for battling climate change and saving the environment. For the first time, two states- California and Hawaii- had committed to 100 percent clean energy goals last year. That means a total of one hundred cities have committed towards 100 percent clean energy. The Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport in Tennessee announced in 2018 that it would be the first airport in the U.S to run on 100% solar power and other airports are interested in the same thing.

History of popular condiments

Condiments can make or break a meal. They’re the addition that saves a dry sandwich and the extra touch that spices up a bit of sushi. No matter what you’re eating, there always seems to be a condiment on the side that is there to at least improve a dish, if not save it entirely. It’s something that has been done throughout history — something that’s immediately clear as soon as you take a deeper look at where your favorite condiments come from. This is how your favorite condiments came to do...

College admissions: long a murky cesspool of sports, affirmative action, government and benefactors

If you were laboring under the illusion that the admissions process at elite colleges is a meritocracy, stop. The college admissions cheating scandal comes as no surprise for those who have watched the process over the years. Parents want their kids in good schools because that reflects on them, not the kids. It does not matter if you are Jared Kushner’s dad getting him into Harvard by funding a building, or Forrest Gump’s mom doing the Greenbow, Alabama Middle School Principal to advance her so...

5 Unsung Word of Mouth Marketing Examples

Word of mouth marketing is — and has always been — the most effective (and cost-effective) way to generate customers and grow any business. But for a long time, word of mouth marketing has been mostly ignored in favor of outbound and inbound acquisition efforts, plus a big shift toward social media. The truth is that social media and word of mouth marketing are NOT THE SAME THING any more than toothpaste is the same as a toothpaste tube. Word of mouth is the toothpaste; social media is the tube...

Most popular whiskeys in the world

Whiskey is one of the world’s most beloved spirits. It’s both sipped neat and mixed into cocktails, savored and taken as a shot alongside a pint of beer. With this level of universal popularity, it should come as no surprise that countries around the world make the spirit. Each does things a little differently, making exploring the world through a dram or glass all too easy to do. Quick note: America, Ireland, and Mexico use the spelling “whiskey.” Everywhere else goes with the English spelli...

Best US vintage trailer rentals

Before there was #vanlife, there was trailer life. In the 1950s and ‘60s, hitting the great highways and meandering backroads of the US with the family and a nicely outfitted trailer was the best way to see the country, and tons of great models emerged from that time period, including the now-iconic and coveted silver Airstreams. Nowadays, you’re more likely to see sleek modern RVs and boxy fold-out campers at campsites, but these charming relics of the USA’s great road-trip era are still flo...
