Somehow I feel as though there was not enough time given for this contest I mean come on really..according to your news date, the contest was announced May 22nd, which puts it in between publishings, therefore when the new edition on May 27th..readers only had a little bit over a day, and, according to your instructions the submissions have to be brought down to you.... come on you guys, ...REALLY?.... sounds contrived, and perhaps if I'm close to being right, maybe you could extend the deadline and includes all of your viewers not just select few..

Will the fountain be on? If not, it will not be Alive After Five. Please make ready clean, empty plastic cups for the children to scoop up water to throw on each other.
Looking forward to their expansion
Way to go, Carissa Sindon! Art is one way to measure the quality of life in any community. Thanks for contributing towards ours! I hope to see continued growth in the livability of Boise for local artists... art feeds our souls!
To a capitalist everything looks like capital.
Human capital is one of the more odious terms in the capitalist lexicon. The phrase advances a couple of key confusions: First, that human value arises from an ability to produce wealth (it does to parasites); second, that there is no distinction between labor (the work that humans do) and capital (sources of wealth that passively generate income).
Economist Branko Milanovic explains:
If “human capital” and “real” capital are the same thing, how can there be a conflict between labor and capital? If profits and wages are the same thing, why should we fight about distribution? You have your form of capital (which just happens to look like labor), and I have mine, which just happens to look like T-bills and stocks.
In a world measured by greedy capitalists and their accountants, everything must be assigned a number, so it will flow through the accounting routines programmed into the computers. Thus the perceived need to create the concept of human capital and to maximize it.
What say we take a ‘Creative’ step to break free of corporate/capitalist-speak and break free of the need to assign an economic value to everything under the sun?
It's funny how the BLM and USFS actively burn 100 year old log cabins to the ground. Then fine you and arrest you for sifting through the ashes of cabins they've burned. Like half of the cabins in Stibnite, Cinnabar, Roosevelt and Thunder Mountain burned by the Payette NF
You mistakingly wrote "It was during this period Hemingway made observations and gathered material for what would become his second novel, The Sun Also Rises (1926)." His time in Italy during WWI was depicted in A Farewell to Arms, which was his second novel. The Sun Also Rises was the 1st, & based on his early time in Spain.
sounds great to me!
Kudos to you good friend - a job WELL DONE!
We will miss you Jeff. Good luck man.
Why are you showing a story that over a year old? This year, 2015, the concert was on Feb. 9th
I think the date is wrong.
As a professional working in the Silicon Valley in the late 80’s through the 90’s I have attended a few TED Conferences in Monterey, just over the hill. While they were invitation events, it wasn't too hard to come by one of those. Nevertheless, in the “old days” the quality of the audience was determined by the interest and curiosity of the attendees. It is amazing to read that evaluating the quality of individuals who would like to attend TEDxBoise has been refined to an audience application process. One can only imagine the quality of the people who are determining the quality of each interested potential attendee. They must be stupendous, or perhaps a word that sounds similar. Conceivably the person behind this significant feat deserves to present their own TED Talk.
It's really a questionable process. First, they want a "quality" audience, so they have them write an essay about...why they're worthy of listening to some notable community members, selected by a self-selected committee, speak for a few minutes on a dramatically lit stage? The desirability of the prize aside, a friend of mine who's very intelligent, very socially conscious and active, has something of a writing disability. He wanted to see the event, but couldn't write an essay, so gave up. Then there's the speaker selection. One of the selected speakers is the father of the event organizer. If the event is to be socially (if not professionally) credible, there should be some rules in place about that kind of thing.
Bookmakers don't "[cheat] gamblers out of their money"--they set odds. It's a mathematical concept. So learn what words mean before you attempt silly wordplay ...
Ah, the times have changed! Back when I was a kid (right here in Boise), they were CHRISTMAS windows; now they're WINTER windows. And - it was the FAIRYLAND Parade; now it's the HOLIDAY Parade!
Hopefully nobody's offended by Winter or Holidays, huh?
Old Boise Music Studios is as busy as ever offering music and arts instruction to kids and adults from all over the Treasure Valley. Since the writing of this article there was clarification on the use of the name Old Boise Music Studios, which for many years has been the name used by the collective of independent professional musicians who offer private and group lessons at this location. The non-profit discussed in this article will be housed at OBMS, headed by Jordan Paige and will operate under a different name.
What happened to all of the benefit show money? Seems like this place is flop...
Robert Franz has been such a treasure for Boise! (Shamefully for me, I can't comment on the ballet, as I haven't "tasted" their work in years. Have it on my to-do list now!)
The orchestra truly does get stronger with every performance. Given that a superlative CAN be reached, I'm not sure how long that improvement can continue--we'll soon hear the pinnacle, and aren't we lucky!
