7. Egwuekwe: ‘Expand Your Networks’ -

As a kid growing up in Memphis, Meka Egwuekwe remembers his first computer clearly: It was from Texas Instruments, the kind Bill Cosby was selling on TV. He played games for six months, then, bored, he pulled out the instruction book and began learning to program in a language called BASIC.

A 3-Star Healthy Task Force appointed to propose a method for catching Tennesseans in a health care coverage gap is taking a politically safe road to reach the same goal as Insure Tennessee.

17. Alzheimer’s Inquiries Abound Following Pat Summitt’s Death -

June was Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. But this year, it would be more accurate to call it Pat Summitt Month.

The legendary University of Tennessee women’s basketball coach died at age 64 on June 28 after a five-year fight with early-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. She was just 59 years old at the time of her diagnosis and still coaching. The disease did not spare her because she led the Lady Vols to eight NCAA championships.

19. Last Word: Two Paths, Council Day, Conley Writes and WIGS Debut -

One of my newest travel interests is renting a bicycle. For years, I’ve enjoyed getting out and running. It’s a great way to exercise while seeing a city.

Even now, Explore Bike Share founder Doug Carpenter does not try to pretend that the initiative will cure all that ails Memphis.

51. Last Word: Behind Grit N Grind, Brooks at 100 and Massacre -

This is a 12-month-a-year basketball town. There’s the season, possibly a post season, which by NBA standards is a second season. (Yep, they are still playing.)

58. Grinding Recovery -

Michael Drury is watching the current U.S. presidential season with a combination of professional detachment and an air of resignation.

Detachment, because part of his job as chief economist at Memphis-based McVean Trading & Investments is to keep abreast of what makes economies around the world tick.

60. Born to Play Football, Paxton Lynch Just Changing Leagues -

The player can’t tell you how it all started, not really. Neither can the player’s first coach and probably not the player’s dad.

No, to get to the root of things you turn to mom. Because mom will remember the details. And so as the countdown to the Thursday, April 28, NFL Draft turns from days to hours – experts of one stripe or another projecting how high former University of Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch will be taken – it’s good to step back for a moment.

67. Editorial: Baseball's Impact Goes Beyond the Outfield -

72. Financial Advice is Not a Luxury -

Ray’s Take: There’s an old saying that if you don't know where you're going, it's difficult to get there. That is never truer than with your financial goals.

The accumulation of money will do very little for your happiness unless you have a carefully constructed and regularly reviewed plan for what you’re going to do with it.

73. Will Barton Making His Own Path in NBA -

Will Barton, in case you were wondering, still talks with his old college basketball coach.

74. Local Nominees Sought for Annual Dunavant Awards -

The path isn’t always a smooth one lined with platitudes and milestones.

But that’s politics, which is a part of service in local government.

78. Editorial: Time for Blight Talk to Become Action -

80. Stephenson Leverages Capital for Community Change -

Why start a bank? It’s a question that would never occur to most people. But to Susan Stephenson, the answer is obvious: “It’s infinite variety. You get to participate in other people’s dreams. In the morning, I can be a first-time homeowner. In the afternoon, I’m a small business looking to open a new location.”

81. Last Word: The De-Annexation Express, Return of The Curb Market and Different Fuel -

84. Randolph gets first triple-double in a stunning win over Clippers -

Mike Conley and his sore Achilles were in street clothes on the bench. Zach Randolph, after missing seven straight games with a sore knee, was back in uniform and playing. And playing so well that late in the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies 113-102 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, March 19 at FedExForum, Conley had a secret to share.

85. Five to Watch -

“You can’t live in Memphis without some kind of side hustle, right?” That’s the way former WMC-TV reporter Lauren Squires Ready sees it. Her side hustle, the passion project she’s been pursuing in her free time separate from all the writing, reporting and live shots as an on-air news personality?

88. Porter-Leath's Early Childhood Academy Highlights Collaboration -

90. Blight Fight Touts New Pathway, Partnerships -

The local effort to fight blight has been in recent years a machete-like action to cut through bureaucratic red tape and get possession of the most blighted properties.

So there have been a lot of press conferences where bulldozers are featured prominently to demolish the targeted property.

91. McDonald's Trial Gives Peek at Chain's Inner Workings -

NEW YORK (AP) – A pivotal trial against McDonald's that began this week is providing a peek into the inner workings of the maker of the Big Mac.

94. Last Word: Cubits Anyone, The G-Word and The TV News Crime Block -

How long is a cubit? After a day in which many of you got about four to five inches of rain and more to come Thursday, it seems an appropriate and timely question.
And yes, there is a cubit conversion chart on line for converting that and other really old units of measurement no longer in use like the mina, drachma or the synodic month.
So the average cubit, which is supposed to be the length of a forearm, is 18 inches or a foot and a half. That’s 0.4572 of a meter, which might as well be an ancient unit of measurement.
