The Solution To Meaningless Bowl Games

Austin Darrow I CNBNewsnet The college football bowl season is upon us and it is under lots of scrutiny, between stars sitting out to prep for the draft and because of the sole factor that they’re meaningless games. The NCAA has these bowl games for one reason and one reason only, the money. The student-athletes are being forced to play these games, which does not matter whatsoever. There’s only one way to fix all of this and that’s to get rid of every bowl game that comes before the New Year’s six bowl games. I bet you couldn’t name more than five bowl games that come before New Year’s Day. There’s 34 bowl games that are played from December 17th-30th (One of those are played... Read more →

Who Are the Best CEOs Today? What Can We Learn from Them?

(CNBNewsnet)(November 29, 2016)--There is no definitive way of ranking the world’s best CEOs. Some use company performances and bottom lines to rank CEOs. Others, like Washington State University, focus on innovations and how these top executives are leading the mobile revolution. Among the top names are Tim Cook and Larry Page, CEOs at the two most influential tech companies in the world: Apple and Alphabet (Google). Both CEOs have introduced a lot of innovations in recent years, changing the way we interact with mobile devices greatly. With both of these CEOs, one of the best things we can learn from them is their approach towards innovation. Innovation doesn’t always mean change.

Obama Unilaterally Rewrites Law, Imposes Transgender Policy on Nation’s Schools

Ryan T. Anderson / @ryantand / May 13, 2016 All across America, parents, teachers and local school districts have been having conversations about how best to accommodate the privacy and safety concerns of transgender students while also addressing the privacy and safety concerns of other students. Solutions were found, such as the creation of new single-occupancy restrooms and changing facilities for transgender students while retaining girls’ and boys’ rooms for biological girls and boys. But activists attacked these commonsense compromise policies as “transphobic.” And now the Obama administration has said that a 1972 law settles all of these issues: Students are to be treated the same based on their “gender identity,” regardless of their sex. Obama’s departments of Justice and Education declared that “both federal... Read more →
