Efficiently designed? What does that even mean? You should probably reconsider your vocabulary, Mr. Author Man.
But really, the Night Security Shuttle is a wholly abused system by those too inebriated (or stupid) to count to five. Because of this, "All lines busy" is usually what students hear when they need to go from the Village to the Library.
As stated in the article, it's a "free taxi" service. What about the Toomer's Ten service? It has been unsuccessful in alleviating much of the strain usually reserved for the "Drunk Bus."

Thank you. There are so many reasons this article is important. Thank you for your courage to stand up for what is right. After all, our country was founded on religious tolerance. Our founders put their lives on the line to stand against the kind of intolerance we are seeing today. Oh what awful crimes have been done "in the name of Christ"! Hatred is NOT a Christian value - ever.

I agree with AZP0027, your article is offensive to all Muslims, but I guess that was the whole point of writing it. I also agree that you need to do some research before making strong statement of the “philosophical basis for the Muslim faith is that ALL infidels must be killed.” kind! The Philosophical bases of Islam are Monotheism, and the responsibility bestowed upon mankind to develop and sustain the universe.
“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into Nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (Not that ye may despise (Each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most Righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted with all things).” Al-Ĥujurāt (13).
This is a verse from the Qur’an, which I bet you have never read, but still allow yourself to make false statements about its content. I can also guess that you don’t know any Muslims, as a Muslim myself, I would never tell anybody that an infidel is any one who is not Muslim, Instead I would refer to the Qur’an and share with them this verse from Al-Baquarre (62)
“Those who believe (in the Qur-ān), And those who follow the Jewish (scriptures),
And the Christians and the Sabians, - Any who believe in God And the Last Day, And work righteousness, Shall have their reward With their Lord: on them Shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
In all religions there are fanatics whose actions can distort that religion’s image. As educated people and students of a research university we have the responsibility of setting a good example by applying rational thinking that is based on accurate data collection (from multiple sources) and analysis.

I have never been so offended. First of all what does it matter if Obama is a Muslim? Are we not in a country founded on freedom of religion? All Muslims are not like the fundamentalists. They are peaceful people trying to live their lives according to their Koran. Yes, the radicals believe they are supposed to kill all infidels but that is NOT the basis of the Muslim faith. One quote from the Koran that most people seem to ignore is "all those who love death hate me." Do some research before you just go writing an article. Another thing that offended me was Mr. Anderson's asking "Almighty God for protection" against our president, just because someone is a Muslim does NOT mean that they are out to kill everyone. The fact that he even mentioned God in this article is a blatant disregard for our college's secularism.

Pretty amusing that the author cites Snopes as a source, then puts forward a false claim about "Obama admitting his Muslim faith" that Snopes itself has debunked:

I have been using Transloc at Auburn for a few years, and love it! I looked up Nextbus, and it doesn't seem to work. There are literally hundreds of articles about this... just type 'nextbus sucks' on google and you will see plenty of examples.

I'm a little disappointed by the TransLoc application - my sister goes to Georgia Tech and they have something called NextBus. Transloc only shows little balloons moving around on a map - not very useful if you don't know the geography. NextBus actually gives the arrival times - in fact, the arrival times for the next several buses. I used it when I visited my sister and it saved us from waiting in the rain. I hope Auburn gets the NextBus system soon.

You can have a try as following:
I agreed that the textbook prices are skyrocketing and some of my textbooks cost over $230!
I found a website that saved me huge money, Dealoz.com
It compares 200 book prices and provides free coupons. The cool thing about it is that I don't need to wait in line to buy textbooks at school. This website even provides LiveChat to help you while you shop online.

It looks as if the people who are working on bacterial fuels are reaching the same conclusions that we have been writing about....we need a political effort to get large scale plantings of the grasses in place of Cotton and Corn. The best place to start is to make the US Congress live up to our treaty obligation to remove the Cotton Subsidy, as signed into law during the WTO Hong Kong round (DEC. 2005). Our WTO negotiator, Rob Portman, twisted arms and got the first WTO Treaty signed, by promising, in writing, that we would comply with the verdict of the World Court, (after losing 4 times to that date, and once more since then)to end our Cotton subsidy. If you wonder why we did not get a climate agreement in Copenhagen, you might see that we are not trustworthy when it comes to treaties...ask a native American about that. Anyway, we need more people of foresight to rally around the environmental issues that matter most. Mr. Portman, had to resign from the WTO, because he couldn't face his fellow ministers and the foreign press about the fact that the ink wasn't even dry, before the Cotton subsidy was right back in the 2010 Farm Bill....That's why I keep asking "why would Nancy Pelosi, no Neocon she, be pushing a treaty busting Farm Bill? She doesn't know much about farming, but ole Arlin Spector does, and when he offered to turn back into a Democrat, I'm pretty sure, he wanted to keep that subsidy that he had shepherded for many years for his Agro Business constituents, and the Dems really needed him....just saying....
Please contact Bambooisgrass.com, and let us know how we can work together. Alabama needs jobs, and the new ones will be good for everyone.
