General Discussion Forum / Paul Quinn thinking outside the box...

Many of our schools have more than enough land to do something very similar to this (I know in Tuskegee case we do).  You wouldn't have to get rid of football to do it either; and the students could work it just like the Paul Quinn students and get some money for it.  With the new stadium coming in Atlanta in a few years, they might jump at the idea of serving organic products.

Congrats to my boy Nick Mosby on his victory... :clap: :clap: :clap:

Political newcomer Nick Mosby, an electrical engineer from Reservoir Hill, bested two-term incumbent Conaway by 648 votes in the Democratic primary, part of a larger shift on the Council that increases the number of allies of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Politics / Gas Prices soar....
« on: March 29, 2011, 09:45:36 AM »
Have you ever wondered why when you go to the gas station to fill up the family car, the price of gas at the pump has just jumped 25 cents a gallon over the past three days? Perhaps you thought the oil companies were just being greedy. Or you believed the nightly news pundit who said that gas prices went up because the crisis in Libya was affecting supplies of oil. One professional oil trader says that you'd be wrong on both counts.

Dan Dicker, who has spent nearly three decades in the oil market, has a profoundly disturbing explanation of why the price of oil, and the gasoline that comes from the crude product, has risen so dramatically in recent months. It turns out, Dicker says, that the price has nothing to do with supply and demand for oil. It's the financial market for oil, filled with both professional speculators and amateur investors betting on poorly understood oil exchange-traded funds, who have ratcheted up the price of gas to such sky high levels.
