One of my favorite kinds of television shows are news programs and/or investigative journalism pieces. If you learn something new every day, it has been a successful day, in my opinion, and these shows, for the most part, are well researched, well directed and overall present credible information. Occasionally, they do miss the mark, however, and we need people knowledgeable in those particular fields to set us straight as to the misinformation. One such event happened the other day as I was watching one of the investigators on a local news station talk about how some companies promise to speed up your PC in minutes over the Internet without no worry or inconvenience to you.
Arizona State University’s award-winning Project Humanities has partnered with Equality TV to create and host “Hacks 4 Humanity”, a two-day, 36-hour event. This event will combine technological developments with the humanities. Participants will cluster to create their own apps or other technologies that support the social good. Each app will in some way reflect one or more of the seven principles – forgiveness, kindness, integrity, self-reflection, compassion, respect and empathy.
Over the course of 10 days in August, all 16 Arizona Dutch Bros. Coffee locations banded together with the community to raise $23,907 for Ryan House. The funds will support their mission of providing respite and palliative care to children with life-threatening conditions and, as needed, end-of-life care.
A recent letter from Dean Pyle (“Arizona universities are most affordable in the country,” AFN, Sept. 7) pointed out the benefits of sending our kids to one of the state universities here in Arizona. It is no joke that college is expensive, but during these difficult times, it is certainly an investment that parents and students should perceive as the best guarantee for their financial future.
In what could be the first crack in the state's ban on gay marriage, a federal judge on Friday ordered the state to issue a death certificate for George Martinez that lists Green Valley resident Fred McQuire as his legal spouse.
A proposal asking voters to hike the pay of state legislators by $11,000 a year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer — as is her own party's nominee for state superintendent of public instruction.
I’ve been seeing campaign commercials lately about increased tuition by political candidates stating that Arizona universities are become less affordable. As a father of a recent Mountain Pointe High School grad and now a student at Arizona State University, the process of choosing the college that was best for our child was based on financial affordability for our family. I am also a believer that higher education is the best investment a parent can make for their child, ensuring much success as they enter the workforce.
Dr. Maria Harper-Marinick, executive vice chancellor and provost of the Maricopa Community Colleges, has been re-elected as chair of the U.S. Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance (ACSFA). U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan first appointed Harper-Marinick to the committee in 2012.
Let’s face it, America and the West are failing now on the world stage. Particularly in the Middle East, fanatical Islamists are riding a huge wave of success. The convert-or-die crowd seems close to establishing the long-desired caliphate of regional Islamic hegemony.
Like many middle-class parents, we promised our kids that we would pay for their college education, a reasonable promise in the 1980s from two parents who were teachers. We are still paying off their college loans in 2014, yet we feel lucky compared to students and families who are paying off college loans accrued between 2008 and 2014.
