Atlantic Mag: American Colleges Are Becoming Force for Inequality

From Atlantic Magazine, May 16 (Click to read full article)

"...Far from wanting to enroll more low-income students, colleges recruit more affluent ones who will pay full price to attend. A follow-up survey of college business officers found that the most common strategy to deal with financial challenges in the next few years was to "raise net tuition revenue." More than 7 in 10 college CFOs cited this answer. In other words, schools are becoming more reliant on the inequality in the system than ever before...." ---Atlantic Magazine Online, May 16

CMPD to Host Awards Ceremony Wednesday

"...honoring officers who’ve provided service to the community, helped bring down crime and even saved lives..." 

They're all heroes. A salary increase for everyone in the CMPD would be even better than a few dozen awards. Maybe more man power would be better. Has the mayor or anyone on the city council given that a thought?

WE Wuz Wrong... or Wuz We?

It has come to our attention that there is another, more idiotic explanation for the UNCC Mascot, the 'FortyNiner (aka '49er) :

"...The nickname "49ers" derives from the fact that the university's predecessor—Charlotte Center of the University of North Carolina (CCUNC - established in 1946) was saved from being shut down by the state in 1949 by Bonnie Cone, when the Charlotte Center became Charlotte College. Due to this "49er spirit" that Cone felt embodied the University, referring to the settlers that endured much hardships in traveling across the United States to seek fortune in the California Gold Rush, students of the fledgling UNC Charlotte chose "49ers" as the school's mascot. The fact that the site of the U.S.'s first major gold discovery, Reed's Gold Mine, is located nearby may also be a contributing factor to the nickname.  

The fact that the University's Main Campus front entrance is located on North Carolina Highway 49 is pure coincidence.

Prior to the "49ers" moniker, the athletic teams were known as the "Owls" due to CCUNC's beginnings as a night school..."  [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlotte_49ers]

Coincidence, huh? 

Why not call the new football team the Bonnie Cones? Or the Coneheads?
