Predicting your personality in 10 questions
Posted: April 21, 2015 - 8:16 am

It’s amazing what someone can determine about you through your answers to just a few questions. I found this out after taking a 10-question online psychological perception test over the weekend.

Math is important, and, to some, it’s actually fun
Posted: April 14, 2015 - 8:21 am

The last time I remember doing some form of hardcore math was during the latter stages of my college career. It was a calculus class, which is a routine course to take in college. But my situation was different for a couple of reasons. First, I was one of those rare birds who was taking the class as an elective, and second, I, as a journalism major, was not supposed to like math.

Section baseball building something special
Posted: April 08, 2015 - 8:38 am

I remember in my first conversation with Drew Davis, the day after he was hired as Section’s baseball coach in the summer of 2007, and he was talking about building the Lions into a power program.

A batty situation
Posted: April 07, 2015 - 8:31 am

My alma mater, Ohio University, made national headlines last week, but it wasn’t for particularly good reasons. The story involved bats, a broken foot and the protest of the potential purchase of a $1 million-plus home for the university president and his wife. And while the bats made the story unique, I believe the underlying sentiment behind the protest is felt at colleges and universities nationwide.

Now we can all be teachers thanks to the legislature

Thanks to the Alabama Legislature, I can be a teacher if I want. The best part is I don’t even have to go to school to do so.
