Dooley wants Tech to ‘finish game’

“With 3:20 to go in the first half, we had the football at Hawaii’s 40-yard line. But we did a poor job of blocking on the first and second downs and then we wind up punting. Then, at the end of the game, with about 1:29 left and the score tied in regulation, we had some drops that kept us from getting a field goal that maybe could have won it for us.

Don’t fall prey to fraud

In this day and age, fraud takes on numerous forms, and people can never be too careful.
Promises of “free” prizes and vacations, surprise inheritances and money for assembling products at home are other types of common fraud strategies which seek to draw money from victims. Those who fall prey to such schemes may be asked to pay processing or shipping fees and get little or nothing in return.

Making the most of the least

Everyone says it, but has any of us ever really thought about what it means?
“It” is the casserole someone might bring for a grieving family who is focused on more trying things than what to eat for dinner or the free-of-charge afternoon of babysitting a relative might provide a desperately exhausted mom and dad.
“Least,” as we all know, means the lowest, the most base of comparisons.
The word “could” insinuates ability or illustrates skill to commit to a certain action.

Lottery scam hits parish

The catch is that before the recipients collect the money, they must pay “taxes and charges.” Victims are told to wire money to pay the taxes in order to collect their prize. In some cases, the victims are told in their letter to contact a “lottery claim agent” to finalize the payment process. Such “agent” asks the victim to provide identifying information as well as bank account numbers so the alleged “lottery winnings” can be deposited in the victim’s account.

Tech steps forward to aid freshmen

The whole goal, said Linda Griffin, dean of student development, is to get students involved as soon as they step foot on campus, even before — mail-outs to new freshmen begin during the summer, familiarizing them with traditions and features of the university.
Faculty also now have a resource in the BARC at their disposal for referrals. Instructors can now intervene, to a degree, and help students having academic or social difficulties through the BARC.

Don't fight the losing battles

We tried spanking, but that didn’t faze her so we stopped. Taking away toys and privileges doesn’t work either. The only good news is she doesn’t come out of her room. Help!
Answer: You’re fighting a losing battle. This particular battle, in fact, is one of three battles you cannot win, no matter what. You cannot make a child eat, use the toilet, or sleep. You can put a child to bed, and you can enforce staying in the room, if not the bed, but you cannot make the child go to sleep.
