Before Southeastern Conference play began, head coach Mike Bianco and the Ole Miss Rebels baseball team, now ranked No. 16, had a world of confidence, but that confidence was quickly shaken. 

 

Before Southeastern Conference play began, head coach Mike Bianco and the Ole Miss Rebels baseball team, now ranked No. 16, had a world of confidence, but that confidence was quickly shaken. 

The Rebels dropped two of three games in their first Southeastern Conference series against Auburn in which Ole Miss scored a combined eight runs during the weekend. Then in-state foe Southern Miss came to Oxford and blanked Ole Miss 10-0.

Occasionally I find myself appealing to members of a previous generation to discuss how their perception of a topic has changed from when they were my age to what it is now.

 

Occasionally I find myself appealing to members of a previous generation to discuss how their perception of a topic has changed from when they were my age to what it is now.

Recently I asked an elder what he thought of politics when he was younger and what he presently thinks about them. “When I was your age, politicians were more noble,” he told me.

“Screwed” won’t begin to describe our situation if I’m echoing that sentiment by age 75.

There are probably very few guaranteed-lose-every-pound-you-ever-needed-without-giving-up-your-chocolate-crème-pie-diets that I haven’t been on or thought about going on, and I’m still 40 pounds overweight. Go figure.

On the shelves of our pharmacies and retail stores sit a variety of weight loss programs and pills promising results that only the fat-loss fairy could deliver. And as far as I know, she popped some fen-phen, got a huge settlement and disappeared years ago.

Nutt, Rebels prepare for LSU
Only two games remain in Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt’s tenure at Ole Miss, and he faces the task of preparing his team to play LSU, the top-ranked team in the latest BCS Standings, as well as the unanimously No. 1 team in both the Associated Press and the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Polls.

During his first two seasons in Oxford, Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt did win. 

During his first two seasons in Oxford, Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt did win. 

It started with a 31-30 signature win over No. 4 Florida in the Swamp, included back-to-back wins over LSU and finished with the second of back-to-back Cotton Bowl wins. However, after a disappointing 4-8 season, followed by a 2-7 start to this season, Athletics Pete Boone announced that the 2011 football season will be the last for head coach Houston Nutt.

Did you know that inside your car may be a device that continuously records while you’re behind the wheel? And that same device can help prove fault or innocence if you’re involved in an accident where it’s your word against someone else’s?

Cancer is a scary word. Most of us know someone who has had it; some of us may have even had it ourselves.  
In recent years, there has been a focus on breast cancer, and rightfully so.  
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women, second only to skin cancer.  
The statistics on breast cancer are sobering. In the United States, approximately one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime, and in 2010, there was an expected 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed.

During the past few weeks I’ve become really jaded with politics and society in general.  

With next year comes a presidential election and the mudslinging between candidates has already begun. I don’t know what it is about an election that seems to bring out the heartlessness in people.

USA Today reported this week that more Americans seem to be “tailoring” their religion.  

The article focuses mostly on Christianity. It cites a new book written by religion statistics expert George Barna titled “Futurecast.”  

In the book, Barna uses annual surveys to show that only two major religious belief trends in America have continued to rise from 1991 to 2011: accepting Jesus as Savior and expecting to go to heaven after death.

When I first heard the term “GM foods,” I thought General Motors was branching out. But as I read on, I became fascinated. 

USA Today had an article that literally opened my eyes to something going on over at the United States Agriculture Department.
