Finals Motivation in a Fluffy Form – WCN (WestminsterCollege Network)

Every year the Friday before finals week, Puppies take over campus.  Pause for Paws is an event that takes place where Faculty and Staff bring their puppies for an hour of puppy fun before the stress of finals week begins.  “There’s just nothing like a dog” said Melissa Baron, Director of Health and Wellness.  “It is scientifically proven that holding a dog does help relieve stress.”  The event is a huge hit every year and students look forward to every year.  There is always the favorite dogs but new ones come every year.  WCN’s Tori Zabo shows us this years event.

Tim Tebow: Georgia football challenged to find motivation for Texas – DawgNation

Motivation
ATHENS — SEC legend Tim Tebow has been right about Georgia football most of the season, and that’s why his concerns about the Bulldogs having an Alabama hangover in the Sugar Bowl are alarming. After all, Tebow predicted Georgia QB Jake Fromm would bounce back after the LSU loss, and Tebow said freshman Justin Fields could ultimately be an answer for the Bulldogs in short-yardage situations. And now Tebow says Georgia coach Kirby Smart will be challenged to get his No. 5-ranked Bulldogs (11-2) motivated to play No. 15-ranked Texas (9-4) in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 in New Orleans. Tebow said allowing the SEC Championship Game to ‘slip through their fingers’ in the 35-28 loss could damage morale. “Now for the time leading up to the game, where’s your mo...

PODCAST: Tide to use Heisman snub as motivation in CFP – Touchdown Alabama Magazine

Motivation
He took a program that was already dominant and made it virtually unstoppable in college football; however, it was not enough for Heisman voters to award Tua Tagovailoa of the University of Alabama with the Heisman Memorial Trophy on Saturday night.  The sophomore fell second to Kyler Murray of Oklahoma, despite setting multiple school records and becoming the first one to do something rare in Crimson Tide football: make a Nick Saban-coached defense take a back seat. In the latest edition of In My Own Words, Stephen Smith of Touchdown Alabama Magazine discussed how the Heisman would be a massive recruiting tool (should Tagovailoa win) or massive motivational tool. After seeing what happened in New York City, the school and it...

0 Comments Dec. 9, 2018 1:34 p.m. ET Regarding Allan Ripp’s “Take It From an Almost-Harvard Man” (op-ed, Nov. 27 and Keith Cravens’s letter of Dec. 3): The mystique of Harvard and Yale was not lost on the novelist William Faulkner. The 20-year-old future Noble Prize winner spent a few months in New Haven, Connecticut, while visiting his friend Phil Stone, a student at Yale. In his early novel, “Mosquitoes” (1927), Faulkner wrote of the colleges’ vast influence: “I guess there is a time in life of every . . . [college-bound] young American, . . . when he wants to go to Yale or Harvard. . . . A kind of illusio...

Derby win is all the motivation that Forfar need – The Courier

Motivation
© DC Thomson Jim Weir. The fact that they would be the first League One club to beat Arbroath this season isn’t in Forfar manager Jim Weir’s thoughts ahead of today’s Angus derby. The only motivation he and his players need is ending a frustrating run of head-to-heads with their local rivals. Arbroath have won the last five encounters between the two sides. And if you go back further, Forfar have only won once in the last 10. Now the Loons want to start turning the tide at Station Park this afternoon. “I’m sure our fans would love to see us end Arbroath’s unbeaten run,” said Weir. “But the main thing is they are just desperate for a derby victory. “It’s been a while. “We’ve been unlucky in...

Launching your project’s online campaign is daunting, but ignore social media at your peril. Now, even micro-budget filmmakers launch sophisticated campaigns to find an audience for their films.   So how should yo...

Trump’s Attorney General Pick Questioned DOJ’s ‘Motivation’ in Attempt to Block AT&T-Time Warner Merger – Variety

Motivation
WASHINGTON — William Barr, Donald Trump’s choice for the next attorney general, earlier this year questioned the antitrust division’s motivation for attempting to block the merger of AT&T and Time Warner. Barr, who served as attorney general under George H.W. Bush, was a member of the Time Warner board of directors. In February, just as the case was being readied for trial, Barr gave a sworn declaration about a key meeting held between Time Warner executives and Justice Department officials in November 2017, just before the DOJ sued to block the deal. Barr’s account of the meeting conflicted with that of Makan Delrahim, who is in charge of the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division. In an affidavit filed in federal appellate court, Delrahim said that a...
