“My arts education has made me a more empathetic person and has nurtured my natural curiosity about humanity and the human condition,” Odom said during the virtual Arthur Miller Foundation Honors gala on Monday. “If you know a little something about storytelling — how to reach people, how to connect with people — those things can be useful for the things you’re going to do in this world and be in this world.”

On today’s edition of BIG NOON KICKOFF, host Rob Stone and analysts Brady Quinn, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart and Urban Meyer talk about how this week’s cancellations and postponements could affect the College Football Playoff, if Group of 5 teams like Cincinnati and BYU have a Playoff path and more.

In Urban Dictionary, Meyer says he hasn’t said “The M Word’ in at least 40 years:
“The Team Up North is a term I used and I learned in the ’70s when the great Woody Hayes was coaching against the great Bo Schembechler in the greatest rivalry of all, the Wolverines against Ohio State. Woody Hayes would never use the term University of the M word. I just remember that from 30 years ago, and when I became head coach at Ohio State, we made that a rule around the facility. As a matter of fact, I don’t

Knox Co. Board of Education discusses student quarantines

Officials said that they heard from several parents who are concerned over students going home in “low risk” situations.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Knox County Board of Education met on Wednesday and discussed concerns they’ve heard from parents about students being quarantined more than once.

Dr. Martha Buchanan, the director of the Knox County Department of Health, appeared and talked about data related to kids being quarantined. However, she said the department’s data was mixed with their overall data on the spread of COVID-19.

She urged officials not to change their current policies and said that coronavirus cases are rising at a significant rate.

“At this time, I don’t think it’s time to make a change,” she said during the meeting. “I don’t believe there is evidence to.”

Buchanan also said that cases are low in schools due to their quarantine policies. Sending student home after possible exposures to COVID-19

Joni Mitchell Discusses Health Recovery, Early Days With Cameron Crowe

Joni Mitchell has not talked with the media since suffering an aneurysm in 2015, but she has spoken with a part-time member of the press — Cameron Crowe, the rock journalist turned writer-director turned very occasional rock journalist again — for a Q&A that has been published in England’s Guardian. In the interview, Mitchell talks for the first time about the difficulty of her recovering from the debilitating physical setback of five years ago, on top of reminiscing about the earliest days of her music career in the ’60s.

The article appears days prior to the Friday release of “Joni Mitchell Archives Vol 1: The Early Years (1963-1967),” a boxed set covering live and studio material from the period leading up to the release of her debut album, which she was once happy to keep in the vault but now has a more sanguine attitude about releasing.

Donovan Mitchell discusses voting, education and police reform with VP candidate Kamala Harris

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell impressed everyone with his playoff performances in the NBA Bubble. But, as Portland Trail Blazers star CJ McCollum put it, “what [Mitchell] did in terms of speaking out was even more impressive.”

That’s why Mitchell recently joined McCollum and 76ers forward Tobias Harris as part of a discussion with Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris.

A video of the conversation — with all four participants wearing masks and socially distanced — was released Tuesday, and touched on topics ranging from voting to education to police brutality.

“I went to private school and public school. I’ve seen two different Americas,” Mitchell told Harris. “There are friends I went to private school with who have no idea what’s happening 45 minutes away in the projects, now idea how people live.”

Mitchell went on to ask Harris about her education policies.

“You have raised what I think

Where the world discusses science.

“I am looking at the future with concern, but with good hope.” –Albert Schweitzer
Every so often, the argument comes up that science is expendable. That we’re simply investing too much of our resources — too much public money — into an endeavor with no short-term benefits. Meanwhile, there’s suffering of all kinds, from poverty to disease to war to natural disasters, plaguing humanity all across…

A man who was not even known as a gun collector amassed an arsenal that all experts agree included illegal fully automatic weapons. He carried out an act of carnage, alone and using only those weapons, that exceeded in casualty count almost every military battle fought in recent decades by American troops, and that equaled or surpassed all but a very small number of terrorist attacks.
He shot…

Two years ago, I wrote about a study that demonstrated how the antivaccine movement had learned
