What in the world WSSU Rams? You haven’t even announce an interim person to hold the ship together. I know it wasn’t George Knox’s decision either. Donald Trump management style is spreading.
Your man crush for President Donald John Trump is showing. Stop giving him credit for stuff he has nothing to do with.
Winston-Salem State University is acting like typical small colleges. Get a new AD or Chancellor/President and coaches get fired. They have to bring their person in. I hope he got a good package on his way out.

Governor Ralph Northam today announced that Virginia has secured over $15.8 billion of capital investment since he took office on January 13, 2018. The capital investment represents over 300 economic development projects in every region of the Commonwealth and has led to the creation of more than 48,000 jobs. Over $2 billion of this investment and more than 7,500 new jobs are in distressed communities, in which the unemployment or poverty rates are above the statewide average.
“Securing a strong, stable, and growing economy has been a top priority of my administration since day one, and this key milestone is a reflection of the hard work and collaboration among state, local, and regional partners, and members of the General Assembly,” said Governor Northam. “Virginia has secured significant capital investment and created new jobs in every corner of our Commonwealth—while there is still much important work ahead of us, I am proud of our positive growth to date and remain committed to using every tool we have to ensure that all Virginians can participate in our economic progress.”
The capital investment secured during Governor Northam’s term is well over double the level of investment that any one of the previous six administrations secured during their first sixteen months in office. The Commonwealth’s labor force continues to expand as businesses grow and make new investments, reaching a new record high with nine consecutive months of expansion and an unemployment rate of 2.9 percent. Additional information about the Commonwealth’s economic progress is available here.
“Governor Northam has been a fierce champion for capital investment and job creation in Virginia, and securing over $15.8 billion of capital investment in 16 months is a great testament to his efforts,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “We will continue working to ensure the Commonwealth provides a competitive business environment that allows our existing businesses to thrive, encourages entrepreneurs to start companies here, and helps attract new businesses to invest and create jobs in Virginia.”

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, along with his wife and brother-in-law, reportedly is under federal criminal investigation for a questionable property tax appeal that has hung over him since last year’s gubernatorial race.
Pritzker – a Democrat who took office earlier this year – has been the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation since last October, although no criminal charges have been brought against him, a law enforcement source told Chicago radio station WBEZ.
"I'm very confident that any review of this matter will show that all the rules were followed," Pritzker said Wednesday during a press conference. "I have not been contacted by any law enforcement, neither has MK (Pritzker's wife)."

A suspected burglar was shot dead by a Washington state homeowner Monday, who pulled the trigger while still on the phone with a 911 operator reporting the break-in, officials said.
The King County Sheriff's Office said on Twitter the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. in White Center, located south of Seattle, after the homeowner woke up to find the suspect inside his home.

You people should petition your locale to let Canada dump their garbage there.

A Richmond jury has found 18-year-old Demeco Pressey-Robertson not guilty in the murder of 23-year-old Josh Grey.
After a day of deliberating five charges, the jury found that Robertson was guilty of attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery, but struck down charges of murder, use of a firearm in the commission of murder, and use of a firearm in the commission of a robbery.
Inside John Marshall Courthouse Monday, Pressey-Robertson plead not guilty to the murder of Grey on September 17, 2018.
He and 15-year-old Tyshawn Andrews were charged with killing Grey. Andrews is accused of carrying out the robbery and killing, which was caught on surveillance video.

This Earth Day, it almost feels like we should be carving some turkey. Why? Because we have a lot to be thankful for since the first Earth Day event occurred 49 years ago.
We should be thankful that the gloom-and-doom predictions made throughout the past several decades haven’t come true. Fear-mongering about explosive population growth, food crises and the imminent depletion of natural resources have been a staple of Earth Day events since 1970. And the common thread among them is that they’ve stirred up a lot more emotions than facts.
“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate … that there won’t be any more crude oil,” ecologist Kenneth Watt warned around the time of the first Earth Day event. “You’ll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill ’er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’” Watt also warned of global cooling and nitrogen buildup rendering all of the planet’s land unusable.
The issue, however, is that present trends do not continue. They change dramatically for a number of reasons. Innovation happens. Consumer behavior changes. Importantly, price signals play a huge role in communicating information to energy producers as well as consumers. Higher prices at the pump encourage companies to extract and supply more oil. Expensive gas prices, meanwhile, motivate entrepreneurs to invest in alternatives to oil, whether that’s batteries, natural-gas vehicles or biofuels. Drivers will examine their consumption options as well, whether carpooling, finding alternative modes of transportation or, over time, purchasing a more fuel-efficient vehicle.
Here we are, 19 years past Watt’s arbitrary deadline, and drivers are pulling up to the pump saying, “Fill ’er up, buddy” (figuratively speaking, as Watts also didn’t foresee self-service stations) without any cause for concern. Thanks to human ingenuity and the entrepreneurial drive of energy producers, the United States is now the world’s largest oil producer, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration — and continually breaking records.

The next time parking enforcement officers use chalk to mark your tires, they might be acting unconstitutionally.
A federal appeals court ruled Monday that "chalking" is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.
The case was brought by Alison Taylor, a Michigan woman whom the court describes as a "frequent recipient of parking tickets." The city of Saginaw, Mich., like countless other cities around the country, uses chalk to mark the tires of cars to enforce time limits on parking.
By the time Taylor received her 15th citation in just a few years, she decided to go after the city — and specifically after parking enforcement officer Tabitha Hoskins.
Hoskins, Taylor alleged in her lawsuit, was a "prolific" chalker. Every single one of Taylor's 15 tickets was issued by Hoskins after she marked a tire with chalk, and then circled back to see if Taylor's car had moved. That chalking, Taylor argued, was unconstitutional.

Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday reportedly threatened to "declare war" against Canada within the next week if the country fails to remove tons of garbage that was previously shipped to Manila.
Duterte, in remarks aired by state media and reported by The Canadian Press, said he will "give a warning to Canada maybe next week that they better pull that thing out or I will set sail."

Thank you President Barack Hussein Obama for fixing this problem and giving us top-notch care.Read more
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., claimed during a recent town hall event that the Department of Veterans Affairs “isn’t broken" and is actually providing “some of the highest quality” care to veterans.
“All I can think of is that classic refrain that my parents always taught me growing up, is that: ‘if it ain't broke, don't fix it,’" she said in New York, as part of her argument against privatizing aspects of the scandal-scarred agency's work.
