1  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Texas bill would fine men $100 each time they masturbate.How much would you owe on: March 20, 2017, 11:18:54 AM
(CNN)A Texas lawmaker has proposed a bill that would fine a man $100 each time he masturbates.
The bill also imposes a 24-hour waiting period if a guy wants a colonoscopy or a vasectomy, or if he's in the market for some Viagra.
Rep. Jessica Farrar, a Democrat, knows her bill isn't going to get very far. But she proposed it last week to make a point and give male lawmakers a taste of their own medicine.

Farrar has long been an advocate of women's health in a state that has made it extremely difficult for women to get abortions. And the bill, by pointing out a sexist double standard, is meant to shine a light on the obstacles women deal with when it comes to their health care.
"Let's look at what Texas has done to women," Farrar told CNN. "What if men had to undergo the same intrusive procedures?"
Even the name is a jab
Farrar's bill would penalize men for masturbation because such behavior is a failure to preserve the sanctity of life and "an act against an unborn child."
Even the bill's name -- "A Man's Right to Know Act" -- is a jab at a pamphlet Texas doctors are required to give women seeking abortions.

ASU won't rush search for Dan Land's successor

Even with spring football just weeks out, Albany State University will not rush the hiring process.
The plan is to announce an interim this week, and find a permanent fix before the summer.
Success came quickly for the Golden Rams in the first two seasons under Dan Land.
ASU won the SIAC east in his first season, and fell one game short of a second championship appearance in in year two.
Land stepped down Monday citing personal reasons.
He will remain with the school as a faculty member.

Since the program has been a perennial contender in the SIAC, Athletic Director Sherie Gordon will take her time to make the right decision.
"Football is the face of the department and institution in some cases," Gordon said. "And here because of the legacy we've had under coach White, coach Smith and coach Land it's important to make sure we keep that legacy of success and a strong program moving forward."
Albany state won 6 SIAC championships under Mike White.
The Rams were knocking on the door for more titles in Land's two seasons.
In order to keep the momentum going, Gordon ideally wants a head coach hired before players leave for the summer.

Who quits right before Spring football practice is to begin?  What kind of signal/message is this sending to the kids? It doesn't make sense.  Coach White's first two season as Head Coach he went 4-6 both years. I guess things didn't go the way he(White) wanted those years. He stuck with it.....  tiptoe

Dam, I thought it said Head Men's and Women's Basketball Coach. Look like Dan was headed in the right direction. I just don't know what direction. Defense did alright but that Offense sucked. Maybe he was trying to hire Uyl as Offensive Coordinator and they wouldn't let him... tiptoe
6  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Quiz: How well do you know these famous Georgia women? on: March 02, 2017, 11:19:12 AM
OK so I got 5 right. See how many you can get right.

Women’s History Month is this March, and while much of the attention tends to center on a handful of our remarkable female pioneers, they didn’t change the world by themselves. Georgia’s history is filled with outstanding women who made significant contributions to American culture, business, sports and more.

Take our quiz and find out how much you know about the famous women who called Georgia home:

7  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Minnesota Vikings’ Glass-Covered Stadium Is Killing Dozens of Birds on: March 01, 2017, 01:38:02 PM
According to The Guardian, the gleaming glass that covers the outside of the structure — a structure that cost over $1 billion in taxpayer dollars to build — reflects the sky almost perfectly. Birds flying close to the new stadium are unable to tell the difference between what is glass and what is the great blue yonder, causing them to fly beak-first into the arena’s walls.

Over the fall, conservationists kept track of how this shining stadium affected the local avian population and found 60 birds, dead from crashing into the Vikings’ home, scattered around the glass walls. They found another 14 birds alive, but stunned from collisions.

Three animal protection groups released a report on these findings, claiming the stadium is set to kill at least 360 birds over the next three years. The report also adds that these numbers are an underestimate, because they don’t take into account the uncounted birds removed by the stadium’s staff and others.

Before U.S. Bank Stadium opened, the Audubon Society warned that the building’s glass would be a devastating “death trap” for birds, and advised the stadium’s owners to add a feature, like an outer-coating to the glass, to help the animals discern between sky and stadium. The owners declined to make any changes.

A new study has been launched to look into the stadium’s effect on the local birds, but it isn’t slated for completion until 2019. Until then, U.S. Bank Stadium is set to remain a confusing and potentially lethal place for birds to be near.

The FCS Championship game is just like the DII level. It depends on who is playing, where the game is being played and who will bring the most people.

Everyone else in the GA University System


ABAC (Tifton,GA) won't be this way for long. Especially if they merge with Bainbridge(GA) College. My bet is they got a lot of Darton students since there enrollment has gone up a lot. I've been seeing more and more news coverage on ABAC from the Albany news media. ABAC is only 40 miles from Albany. Georgia Southwestern(Americus) is about 37 miles from Albany. They have seen a good increase of students also. Fort Valley to Americus is 42 miles. I figured they would merge Fort valley with GSW.

I've lived in that area twice. Once near Windy Hill Road and once near Delk Road. Believe me when I say It will be a nightmare. Sunday games may be OK because traffic is not that bad.They have built up a lot in that area. Cobb Parkway is already a nightmare at times and it's the only road that runs parallel to I-75. I like hanging out at the Galleria and Cumberland Mall.
15  Discussion / Sports Forum / Turner Field officially belongs to Georgia State and development team on: January 05, 2017, 12:04:24 PM
A little more than three years after the Atlanta Braves announced their plan to relocate to Cobb County, and a few days after the team formally moved out of Turner Field, their old home has a new owner.

Georgia State University and a private development team officially closed Thursday on their purchase of the ballpark and surrounding parking lots, completing the long-simmering deal and marking a new era for The Ted and the neighborhoods around it.


That's going to be one Bad A-- Stadium.
