Found your web site and decided to use a fast read, not what a usually do but nice one. Nice to see a blog for any change that isn’t full of spam and rubbish, and in fact makes some sense. Anyway, wonderful write up.

@ToomerIdiot11 are you even surprised? These kids who sit around acting like they're educated liberal journalists who can't even copy edit their own stories just makes me sick.
last week their copy editor must have decided to do her job, but she wrote about some up and coming paper that she is interviewing at and whether or not she should dump her boyfriend blah blah who cares. Do any of you actually know what happens in this country? I never see columns talking about anything but Playboy, sorority, football and other meaningless s***. Get real. You're all useless to your profession. Please don't blame the school when you all graduate this year and are not hired. You earned your one way ticket to freelancing for the rest of your life before you finally give up and either take a brain dead PR job or change careers while drowning under your school debt that your Spend-a-holic President has done nothing about. But you won't know because you're a moron.
By the way, if you're a journalism student and you are just learning that Playboy has a history that doesn't involve porn and you are shocked to learn they have an editorial department, you have no business ever telling anyone you are a journalism student because you have already failed your professional peers.

first it would help if you all included photo credits on your pictures. That's what real publications do.
second I love how quick you all are to get sports stories out, but it took you 3 hours, and getting scooped by every other outlet in the state AND national news, to get a story about a shooting at your main feeder junior college.
Let's not show the world where our priorities are too much.
Get it together and act like you all want to be hired one day

I appreciate the opportunity to share about our passion for old-time music and this upcoming event, but do want do want to clarify an error made in reporting our names: Ashley gave the interview and will teaching fiddle, mandolin, and bass; his wife, Joni (myself), will be teaching banjo, guitar, and flatfooting.

Honestly, I thought The Plainsman was better than that. First, I can't believe this paper would sway an article so hard to one side of an argument. What Lee did was wrong, I can admit that. People do make mistakes though, don't they? The real problem lies with Alexandra's extremely stupid quotes. I find it hard to believe that a grown man would put his hands on a young lady like that in a common meeting. Eric, you must truly be as dumb as Alexandra for allowing such a ridiculous quote to even enter the article. Besides the Lee County Republican Party, there is also another loser in this article because of your piss poor journalism skills. Why would you accuse or even suggest that Thrift would be in this for herself. I see her on the concourse all the time working hard to bring people together for what she believes in. She also helped me in a class our freshman year and I made a C thanks to her help. If not for her help, myself and our great University would be missing a wonderful and intelligent leader.
Plainsman, I only ask that you exercise good judgement and discretion before your next article comes out because you truly don't understand what it takes to be a good writer with a newspaper that has integrity.

I'm just about through with this whole sad affair. The ban was preordained by the powers that be before the vast majority of the Auburn family heard anything about it.
The effort to collect "feedback" and "input" was and is a total sham; the unverifiable results on which the administration is basing its decisions directly contradict the freely-available feedback available online (Wordpress and Plainsman) which suggests a very different degree of support. Count the pro- and con- posts yourself.
The scientific foundation on which this proposed ban rests has been challenged and no adequate answers have been offered by proponents of the ban. Note that the known dangers of secondhand smoke are necessary but not sufficient to find an objective justification for the kind of ban that is being proposed.
I say the ban that is being proposed; of course, none of us know what ban is being proposed, since the bill/resolution has not been drafted yet. Frankly, I find it curious that the SGA votes on issues which have not been well-defined. Given that they don't even keep track of the bills they pass on their website anymore, perhaps this isn't so surprising.
“This policy could upset a few people here and there,” Smith said, “but this policy could also prevent someone from starting to smoke."
=> Technically, according to the survey conducted by the SGA - which we can only assume greatly favors the side of the administration, which is plainly pro-ban - about 1/5 people (~ 5,000 students) will be upset by this bill. That's compared to about nobody who would be upset to see the bill pass... since the bill's failing would maintain the status quo.
Whatever. Some of us are too busy to attend meetings, especially when the presence or absence of the little people won't make any difference at all.

This is a great article with some solid advice. The fact that the nutrition - the right nutrition - is so vital, it cannot be stressed too much. Something that can also help, particularly with study and the run-up to exams, is a brain supplement like neurapex (www.neurapex.com) as it gives the pre-frontal cortex of your brain (which is the area used for maintaining concentration and focus) the nutrition it needs. I can't recommend it highly enough.
