re: What Universities Should the State of La Close? - LXIXER on 2/15/16 at 8:55 pm
The graduation rates you are comparing are from 2011. The students who enrolled at Nicholls and are reflected in the statistics you posted enrolled under open admissions. Anyone with half a brain could just about get in any of the universities in Louisiana except maybe LSU. Graduation rates were ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Isn't student loan debt the only type of debt you can't declare bankruptcy on?[/quote] Educational debts are not discharged in bankruptcy.

re: Anybody purchase a Ninja Blender? - LXIXER on 1/31/16 at 8:50 pm
I really like my ninja blender. Used it a bunch for about two years until the motor burnt up. Called the company and explained that the base sounded like a bearing had gone out and the motor burnt up. Even though it was well out of warranty, they sent me a whole new blender and asked that I retur...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Alabama state retirement system? - LXIXER on 12/30/15 at 10:13 pm
I doubt his retirement will be based on his full salary, depending on where the salary funds are actually coming from. A few years ago, Les Miles' base salary at LSU was only 300,000. This is what was reported to the retirement system as his salary. The salary coming from radio, tv, private sour...
