Kentucky is not ranked # 3. They ranked #11.
Why in god's name would anyone buy from Rose's or any store owned by someone who hates his customers. Art Pope uses his profits to hurt women, the poor, the elderly. He supports right-wing groups that want to take away hard earned freedoms.
And, how can Pope, with his obvious political agenda, be allowed to hold a job as NCs budget director? Pope is a menace who pulls the strings of the puppet governor, McCrory. They all need to be kicked out of office in 2014 then tarred and feathered.
The fact is Carolina North is stalled. Swamp gas will be delivered. Electricity and optical fiber are going in the j conduit.
The abandoned airport property is well located and would fit for modular building easily with minimum investments. Shipping container living and working spaces can be put together for under 20 grand.
Frankly I'd ask IKEA to come in and hire because of their progress and international distribution that would insure work and expansion of employment in the building sector.
Tranditional building techniques are 30 percent waste. Only modular building techniques will keep ahead of demand.
Practical programmer: This appears on the editor's blog (not on Page 1), which documents the streets of the Triangle primarily through photographs. Somtimes the subject matter is serious, such as the portrait of the homeless man from last month; sometimes it's artful, such as the hanging of the holiday wreath at American Tobacco, and sometimes the content is light-hearted, such as this one.
We need some levity and humor in this world. We don't really think sex is happening in the Museum Hotel, at least not yet.
One thing that is unclear in the instructions. Approximately what dimensions should the dough be after the multiple folding process when the dough is cut into biscuits? Approximately what thickness?
Is there no oversight at about what is published? This is hardly a "page 1" story. Nothing but innuendo without any substance at all.
Pope's request is ridiculous. It's a scavenger hunt, and goes well beyond reason.
Can we make a statement about Plagiarism in our district please? The work of "Chapel Hill High School principal Sulura Jackson" is now part of a marketing blog for a anti-plagiarism product (http://en.writecheck.com/blog/2013/12/4/plagiarism-allegations-phd-student-and-principal).
They write, "When word arrives that a principal has been passing off the words of others as her own, it sets a terrible example for students and raises questions about why plagiarism is wrong, especially when someone such as the principal can do it and get away with it. It seems unfair to punish students for something that their educators are excused from."
Very admirable, trying to hurt someone's business because you have a political disagreement with them. How do these people look themselves in the mirror??
Why are Progressives so self-righteous and why does the INDY enable them?? As Cromwell's rules states it, "I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible that you may be mistaken." This is the humility Progressives lack.

According to Forbes most recent list of the 400 wealthiest Americans, the wealth of the super-rich has grown during the last year. Meanwhile, as the wealthy get wealthier, the middle class continues to reduce in size, widening yet more the gap between the rich and the poor.

According to the Public Schools of North Carolina web site, "Plagiarism is illegal in the state of North Carolina according to General Statute § 14-118.2."
This time, we got the following crossword puzzle clue What the Tin Man had that also known as what the Tin Man had 6 letters .
Pope is a 1&%er piece of human excrement.
"Are these people serious? That's close to $32,000 a year for a 40 hour work week. I know people with college degrees who don't make that much in their current (professional) jobs." Sounds like this commenter got it backwards. Getting $32,000/year for 40hrs/week is enough to be comfortable for a single person in most parts of the country. That's not too much to ask but it sounds like those degree holders working in their field aren't making what they're worth either. If the top 1% of wage earners weren't hogging 50% of the nations wealth wages could come up at all levels. Remember who the real enemy is.
Thanks for commenting, Sloan! What Duke is doing this season is no accident. Although there are probably no first-team All-America candidates, it's a team with no glaring weaknesses. None. Now the challenge is to sustain.
This is a joke, right? Principal plagiarizes and administration blames teachers for calling it out? It's plagiarism.
What do other schools do?
The administration in NYC got it right when they call out another principal who ended up leaving, saying, "We do not tolerate plagiarism in our schools," Walcott said in a statement. "We teach our students the importance of integrity in their work, so to have this allegation about one of our principals is very concerning." http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/education/principal-school-writers-rips-david-foster-wallace-grad-speech-article-1.125809#ixzz2mlHvHa2l
We have got nothing so far from the administration other than it was handled poorly by the teachers, and it's a distraction. We need a statement that addresses the accusation of plagiarism in our schools. Do we tolerate it? Apparently yes. But that's the wrong message. Be leaders. Be courageous!
When Toronto School Board member who had plagiarized wrote his resignation he writes, "I regret that I have not set a good or proper example for the many thousands of young people I've been privileged to meet and know." http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/toronto-school-board-head-resigns-plagiarism-allegations-grow-1.1398446 . He seems to understand why this is so important and needs to stop.
We get an statement from the principal that this issue was a distraction. No message that plagiarism is not tolerated. She does not get it. As an educator, this is the moment when you could have made a statement and used it as a lesson for everyone. But you were sorry you got caught.
How different is this boston principal from ours: http://www.poynter.org/latest-news/mediawire/219865/boston-principal-who-plagiarized-forbes-column-resigns/ . A thought from the principal to the staff, that was plagiarized.
Please take this seriously. This is not a joke.
Yet another reason to become a vegetarian- to save beautiful forests and wildlife habitat from being bulldozed to feed suffering animals living in misery, which are fed to humans in bbq joints making them sick, overweight and unhappy . It is time to wake up people, and stop the madness. This old way of life, the good ol' boy network of "BBQ bigots", that want to sell or buy Hofmann Forest, is so yesterday.
As someone who studies works from the Enlightenment period, I must point out that the letter writer's assertion that the 18th century is not part of the Enlightenment is incorrect. I do not know any historian or philosopher who would give that statement any credit. While the movement began in the later 1600s it is, in fact, associated mostly with the 18th century.
I cannot speak to the assertions about Madison or Jefferson but the clear misstatement that the letter begins with makes me doubt the rest of it.
In re-reading the article and the quotes from Lynn Fox, I am disappointed that a member of the Improvement Team has only picked up the administration viewpoint which consistently doesn't recognize or doesn't care to recognize deeper issues. I would encourage Fox to dig deeper and talk with others outside of the team, and learn what is going in in the school. Her quotes suggest she believes the words of the administration, but hasn't seen what actually goes on. Her view is disconnected with what many, many others see happening.
One final point, both the superintendent and Fox feel that this was handled poorly, which misses the point (intentionally or not). Neither make a comment about plagiarism nor the myriad of examples of it written at the hand of Principal Jackson. What would have been the outcome if indeed they followed Fox's suggestion that "they should have gone to her and it would have been resolved." Principal Jackson's words want it to go away. Surrogates attack the issue, suggesting its not plagiarism, or in the ironic case Callie WILLIAMS writing about Sulura WILLIAMS Jackson's "cryptomnesia". But she apparently continues to borrow words, assuming we must not be smart enough to catch on (her thanksgiving note).
We have process problems as I wrote earlier that need to be attended to, that I'm not sure the Improvement Team can address. But it is a different issue. Let's address the plagiarism issue first and be done with it. Then we can move on.
