I have to admit, oftentimes I find it difficult to decide what I will wear into class when I am playing my role of a College Instructor. I think some of my angst is in how I was brought up (professionally). When I was an up-and-coming professional the customary dress (for men) was to always wear a suit, and not just any suit. Grey or blue pin stripe was the gold standard, and always a crisp white shirt (properly washed, ironed and with the just right amount of starch, of course) and at all times done by your local dry cleaners.

By Darren Johnson
Campus News and Nu2U

Ah, celebrities. They go on each other’s talk shows and podcasts and pontificate. They go on awards shows, giving each other awards, and pontificate.

Again, I’ll likely skip watching the NCAA “March Madness” tournament this year.

Yes, it is exciting when small programs make it – locally, Manhattan and UAlbany made the show as low seeds – and, from a sporting perspective, there is nothing quite like a 67-team showdown over a short span of time.

But I can’t get past one thing: These athletes are being exploited. Continue reading
