Teilhard de Chardin, the controversial French philosopher and Jesuit priest, once said, “The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.”

But hope – what’s hope have to do with that next generation who are sitting in classrooms across our country? Actually, hope has everything to do with it. Hope gives a future orientation to students who are bored at school.

The first thing Veronica Coleman-Davis wanted to do was take a look at where thousands of untested rape kits had been stored over the last 30 years.

48. Time for Winning -

Through a 31-game regular season and an 18-game grind in the American Athletic Conference, the University of Memphis never lost back-to-back games. It’s a notable achievement.

53. City, Arena Prepare for Tourney Spotlights -

It’s an audition. That’s the simplest way to explain Memphis serving as host for the inaugural American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament March 12-15 at FedExForum.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The nation's regional airlines are having trouble hiring enough pilots, the government says, suggesting one reason may be that they simply don't pay enough.

I was not a part of that survey, but I would like to add one more to that list of “do overs”: to listen more.

70. Breaking Through -

If it was just an abstraction or a mere theory, it wouldn’t have a definition in the dictionary or a website. It would simply be another urban myth.

But with a few keystrokes you can go right to www.glassceiling.com. And the dictionary definition of “glass ceiling” is tangible – “an unfair system or set of attitudes that prevents some people (such as women or people of a certain race) from getting the most powerful jobs.” In fact, you can almost see a woman stuck in middle management, briefcase in hand, staring up at that glass ceiling and wondering: Where do I find the ladder that gets me from here to there?
