re: No carry permit needed in Iowa any longer - Buck Strickland
Here's a link to HB16 in its current form. [link=(https://www.legis.la.gov/legis/BillDocs.aspx?i=239780&t=text)]HB16[/link] The second link allows you to follow the bill as it works its way through the sausage making process. [link=(https://www.legis.la.gov/legis/BillInfo.aspx?s=21RS&b=HB1...

re: Our army is becoming significantly weaker and its because of women - Buck Strickland

re: .22 pistol recommendations - Buck Strickland
Plus 1 for the M & P Shield 22 recommendation. I bought one for my wife (no pics) because she didn't like shooting the 9mm version I own. I've put about 1000 rounds through it with no issues. Its very light and easy to rack. Buck...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
I'd echo what BTX said. Meeks isn't hard as long as you are comfortable with writing. My biggest complaint is his condescending emails. I have a theory that he sends the same ones each session to "motivate" his classes. They just rubbed me the wrong way. If he has a legitimate complaint about the wa...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
bookdragon, I had James for Mkt701 this session. It was a lot of reading, but was manageable. I paired it with MADM701, which was also a fair amount of reading/writing. I'm comfortable with writing, so neither class was that big of deal. ...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
Quick question for anyone who has Shaugnessy. Does he allow you to use a formula sheet? White has us trying to memorize 30 different formulas. Over 34% have dropped now. Additionally, the forums are still not back up, so there is no way to ask questions or get assistance without emailing her d...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
Rosendo, I don't know if you have been on Moodle today, but there is an open revolt. Several threads were started criticizing White. In response, she pulled down all of the forums and sent an email to everyone in the course. She is of course pulling out all of the people who dropped from the clas...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
Rosendo, I am in the same spot. There is no real instruction and not enough hours in the day to read hundreds of forum posts looking for the answers to the problems. Unlike other professors, like Dr. Vines, she offers a single zoom session. I'm pretty disheartened. This is my fifth class, and I ...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
I don't know where the info is coming from or whether it is accurate. I'm going to try and hold out until the withdrawal date and make the call then. I've never submitted an assessment on a course before, but I'll be doing it with this class. ...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
Unless I missed it, has there been any discussion of ECON 705 with White? From my perspective, it's been a complete train wreck, with sub par materials and practically nothing in the way of teaching. There have been several instances of the professor arguing with students in the forums over the wor...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Buck Strickland
@hannat @perry Is there a formula for WACC in the spreadsheets that Perry shared? I didn't see one. @hannat, I'm specifically looking at problem 4 in the practice set. Additionally, for purposes of satisfying Dr. Vines, do I need to just put the variables in the formula from the functio...
