Concordia has settled on an interim president. Former president Frederick Lowy is said to be in talks to take over. The Board of Governor’s Executive Committee recommended Lowy out of twenty one candidates. His duties will consist of strengthening the relationship between the Board and the senior administration. Smoothing things over with the Concordia community will also be on the agenda. 

Lowy was previously president and vice-chancellor of Concordia from nineteen ninety five until two thousand five.

The Extreme Weather Desk

I'm not sure when it started or when I first noticed it but CNN now has an Extreme Weather Desk as a regular feature in the course of their daily 24/7 news broadcasts. In my day... and I'm not kidding even though I'm only 54,  in my day we didn't need an extreme weather desk! Of course occasionally the weather got crazy somewhere around the globe but that was exceptional and it was reported on then as it is today, breathlessly and with a sense of awe but you know, just not every damned day of the week!

What Americans Spend Their Money On

When looking at the budget fights the Americans are currently embroiled in, it's important to ignore the spin from both sides and remember what it is they actually spend their money on. If ever there was a case to be made that the Military Industrial Complex has taken over and has far too much influence on American policy both foreign and domestic, it's contained in the numbers below which were put together by the non-partisan National Priorities Project.
