Not sure why Bob Mould wasn't mentioned here...
Baba Ghannouj is a hidden gem in the tangle of bad restaurants near 54 & 55. It does a brisk business at lunchtime, which means the cooks are always refilling the buffet line with freshly cooked food. The cuisine is Mediterranean and the highlights include the lamb with tzatziki sauce, the humus, and the curried chicken. There are plenty of vegetarian options, too. They are currently offering a lunch special of a "cheese-steak" (in a pita) with fries and a drink for $6.
Bill, could you please name some of the schools in NC that have 50% drop out rates? And the methodology you used to determine that was the rate? thanks
While the past cannot be changed, its hard to believe this issue has not yet been addressed. It is unfortunate that film is still being handled as a second class art form at NCMA, particularly since these film series have become more and more popular over the years. Not only is a cultural service being handicapped to current and future patrons, but an opportunity for increased revenue to the museum is being missed. With proper facilities, NCMA could become the premiere venue for classic film in North Carolina. Lets hope improvement and expansion plans will be in the works soon.
Wait a minute, aren't smaller government and federalism at opposite ends of the ideological spectrum?
God, we can't even get competent fascist corporate overlords these days...
Bill are you a product of NC's schools? Your subject verb agreement leads me to believe otherwise.... our latest graduation rates are way, way up -above 80% to be factual. Countries that support teachers with higher pay and unions do extremely well... google it... and study after study has shown that as a whole charters perform worse or on par with public schools.... not better... ever. I do agree we need different options for our students but nothing good can come from anything proposed by the fascist, semi-racist ALEC or their corporate agenda.
This is another reason why Duke Energy leaves itself wide open to criticism for supporting ALEC. Already, Duke ignored 150,000 people nationwide asking it to dump ALEC for suppressing voters and attacking climate and clean energy policies it claims to support. The RPS battle in the North Carolina legislature, led by former Duke engineer and ALEC member Rep. Mike Hager, is another new example.]
Thanks for writing!
After decades of Liberal Education policies, many Schools in NC have a 50% dropout rate, and it is estimated that 20% of the population is functionally illiterate ( i.e. can't fill out an employment application). The situation is getting worse to the point that America ( and NC ) is losing our competitive position, but, for the Professional Educators, it's all about getting more, and more, and more money.
Just how bad does it have to get before we do something ?
Medium wage America has 14% manufacturing employment and falling .. High wage Germany has 34% manufacturing employment and rising.. What's going on? Well , Germany has 2/3 education in trades, while in America, every student is supposed to go to college.
Not working out very well, is it?

While it is true that digital projection is becoming the mainstay of multiplexes, there is good reason not to turn our backs on reel-to-reel presentation in the indoor auditorium. Doing so would effectively eliminate access to archival film libraries, which stipulate their films be presented using this "obsolete" technology. As long as there is demand for screening classic and archival prints, there will be a need for reel-to-reel presentation.

Ok now using that same line of thought, why don't we cap executive pay at Boeing or Bank of America or any other for-profit businesses that are either providing services to or being propped up by the federal government? Why not require an executive pay cap for any business taking advantage of those wonderful tax breaks and union-free benefits of locating in NC?

Unlimited immigration has become part of the multicult religion, and to challenge it, no matter how reasonably, is heresy and must be silenced.
Excuse me but, if the company created a performance of Skriker which was oblique and the audience left feeling confused then they did a good job. the skriker and her minions are a metaphor for hallucinations in relation to postnatal depression, drug taking and shared hallucinations. I'm sorry but your critique is faulty.

A couple of passes and corner kicks, plus a supposed uncalled foul, without shots on target doesn't really equal early offensive aggression.
