"What are we talking about? We talking about fiction or we talking about fact? You talking about fiction? Hold up pardon my back..."
– Excerpt from Jay – Z, "What We Talking About"
I've been at a lost for words lately watching all the New World Order-like advancements unravel before our eyes. From Stand your Ground to Stop and Frisk, war is being waged on those who refuse to follow the "logical" standards of our society.
And there have been a long list of murders, both old and new: Jordan Davis, Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, and Ramarley Graham. Why have people lost what little respect they had for our community? Why have they turned their backs and begun to raise deadly guns again?
On Senior Day, the University of Memphis reaped huge dividends from its departing class as the Tigers beat back the SMU Mustangs 67-58 at the FedExForum on Saturday.
"In the second half, the senior guards would not let us be denied," said head coach Josh Pastner. "This win will keep us in the top 25 for the entire season. This is a great feat in itself. Not too many programs stay in the top 25 the whole season."
The nationally televised game was punctuated by ear-ringing energy, with Tigers finding a way to overcome a 30-26 deficit at the half.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Memphis plans to partner with the National League of Cities (NLC) and the U.S. Dept. of Education to hold a "community conversation" to discuss strategies to advance learning, enhance student engagement and improve schools.
Three goals for cities to focus on – early childhood education, afterschool and postsecondary attainment – were outlined Monday in a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between NLC and the Dept. of Education. The MOU was unveiled at NLC's Congressional City Conference in Washington.
"We understand that increasing our educated workforce in specific areas directly improves Memphis' economic future," said Mayor A C Wharton Jr. "This partnership with the City of Memphis, the National League of Cities, the Department of Education and America's Promise with support from AT& T will assist the City of Memphis in creating pathways to prosperity for more of our citizens."
