  • College Board: Pay for this test we made to measure your aptitude for college
  • College Board: Oh, you want to do well on said test? Pay for materials put out by us to do it
  • College Board: Pay us to send your test results to colleges. We won't even use paper; it's electronic
  • College Board: Pay us to take a test that certifies mastery of college level material. Take college level classes to get into college basically. But pay us
  • College Board: Pay us to send a lengthy, confusing financial aid application to colleges even if you don't get in. Pay us more if your parents are divorced

In fact, it is black southern popular culture, and hip-hop in particular, that was doing the ethnographic work about the South when sociologists were not. Three Six Mafia, Gangsta Boo, 8-Ball and MJG, Arrested Development, Ludacris, T.I., Outkast, Nappy Roots—the list goes on and on—were giving us a visual and lyrical ethnographic analysis of the post-soul South through their music and music videos while sociologists were still talking about Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles and historians were talking about everything before King’s assassination.

We’re now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they’ll take you where you want to go! 

…they’ll be designed to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention. They won’t have a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal… because they don’t need them. Our software and sensors do all the work. 

The future just got a little bit closer.

A multiple drone-owner, Martha Stewart loves beholding her dominion from every angle. When Vanity Fair’s Bennett Marcus asked if any of her neighbors were concerned about the flying gadget, Stewart replied, “No. I don’t have any neighbors,” while laughing. The stately, full laugh of a solitary drone-master.

WRAS 88.5FM, also know as Album 88, is an institution among student-run radio stations. Georgia State students have pioneered the station for over four decades, as it is entirely student run. The station has advanced musical genres, as well as helped discover such artists as Outkast and REM.

GSU President Mark Becker announced, after students had completed finals and left campus, a sell-out of WRAS airtime for Georgia Public Broadcasting programs from the hours of 5AM to 7PM. This decision was negotiated for months, and decided without any input from students.

It is unacceptable, to me, because WRAS is one of the few radio stations I’ll actually listen to in Atlanta.
