New chancellor: UNCG must produce engaged citizens

Frank Gilliam

Public higher education is at a critical juncture in America, Frank Gilliam, the new chancellor of UNCG, told faculty, staff and students at Alumni House on Friday.

“How do we continue to deliver a high-quality educational experience for our students while the business model is changing beneath our feet?” Gilliam asked. “As you all know, across the country states are disinvesting, if you will, in public higher education. And this troubles me, of course, because as probably most of you in the room know, the prosperity of states like North Carolina, or California, or Wisconsin are directly attributable to the institutions of higher learning in those states and the human capital that it produces.” Read More

The Weekender: Girl on Fire Edition

Remember that time in Hunger Games when Lenny Kravitz put the girl in the fire dress? That was awesome.

Remember that time in Hunger Games when Lenny Kravitz put the girl in the fire dress? That was awesome.

If this were Panem, we would be District 12, the hungriest area in the whole Hunger Games universe — that is, if you don’t count District 13, which was wiped off the map for rebellion… or was it?

Will a champion shall arise, Katniss-like, from our ranks who will change the fate of the Triad? I’d settle for enough food for all of our people, and maybe a dim-sum restaurant.

Either way, The Hunger Games goes down for free in Center City Park tonight at sunset.

Sing a simple song: International karaoke in Greensboro

Empty orchestras

by Anthony Harrison

Three young Korean men sat on the couches in one of the medium-sized rooms of Sing-a-Song Karaoke in Greensboro. It was early in the night. One of them, Kevin Hong, smartly dressed and sitting alone on the left couch, sang a dirge-like Korean pop ballad.

Seung Lee, the potbellied owner of Sing-a-Song, had popped in to check and see how they were doing, chatting with them in Korean. The room was dimly lit except for the flashes of LED lights on the floor and walls.
