Grandma’s Basketball Roundup

Many of you have heard me talk about how much my grandma loves basketball so I asked her if we could talk about it in a podcast. It’s not often you can get NBA insight from a sweet, 80-something-year-old woman.

Please give a listen and share with anyone you think might enjoy. We’d love feedback and ideas so we can get ready for next season. Thanks!

“I decided to start a fashion blog based on this party…”

A Starbucks Education

I’ve often thought of myself as a modern-day Cassandra — forseeing events of the future without being able to stop them. So when I read that Starbucks was going to start paying for their employees’ college education, I wasn’t surprised. For a long time, I’ve thought that Starbucks would find its way into more than just our college campus student unions. Somehow they would get involved in our education as well. Sure they say they’ll “pay” for their worker’s college educations. But there are a couple of catches. For one, you have to attend Arizona State University. Why? Because Starbucks probably owns ASU. How else would you explain their education materials? I mean, take a look at some of the exam questions from a sampling of ASU courses.

GREEK HISTORY FINAL:

Greece: the cradle of Western Civilization and home to more than 20 Starbucks locations, including the shop near the Acropolis. Thousands of years separate the construction of these two buildings. Explain how they both could be classified as wonders of the world.

MICRO ECONOMICS QUIZ:

If you bought 10,000 shares of Starbucks when it was 43.00 / share, you would make a profit if you sell. But why would anyone ever want to sell their stake in Starbucks?

ART HISTORY FINAL:

The above painting, depicting a farmer and his latte-drinking daughter was actually modeled after the artist’s sister and dentist. Name the artist, the painting and the Fall seasonal drink menu.

(AUTHOR’S NOTE: It’s weird — I’ve been to the Art Institute of Chicago and seen this painting up close and there’s definitely something different about this one. I think the farmer doesn’t wear glasses in the original.)

INTRO TO PSYCHOLOGY MIDTERM:

There are five recognized stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance). Would drinking Starbucks coffee be a beneficial step to add to the grieving process? Before you answer, remember who is paying for your education.
