Former Purdue basketball star Joe Barry Carroll is the force behind two art exhibits

Joe Barry Carroll, the former Purdue All-American, is the force behind two exhibits opening this week at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. The former Purdue All-American, who played in West Lafayette from 1976 to 1980, is the only Purdue men’s basketball player to score a triple double, with 16 points, 16 rebounds and a school record 11 blocks. In 1980, Carroll led the Boilermakers to the NCAA tournament Final Four. Later that year he was the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. Over his 11-year NBA career – which included seven seasons with the Golden State Warriors – he racked up 12,455 points, 5,404 rebounds, 1,264 assists and 1,122 blocked shots. He is less recognized for his prowess with a paintbrush and his way with words, for his creativity and his artistic vision. But that may be changing. an image of “La Scala” by Joe Barry Carroll, part of “My View From Seven Feet” (Photo: Photo provided) On display in the McDonald Gallery, “My View From Seven Feet” showcases 11 paintings and mixed media works by Carroll, accompanied by narratives t...

NorthShore Inline Marathon expands reach in roller sports

A year ago, the NorthShore Inline Marathon teamed up with Harbor City Roller Derby for it’s 23rd edition and the partnership — along with an international tournament for roller sports in Barcelona — inspired race director Mike Ward to think differently about the three-day event. The result was a rebranding for the 24th year of what’s billed as “the nation’s largest skating race.” Introducing the NorthShore Inline Marathon and SkateFest, which gets underway Friday and runs through Sunday throughout the city of Duluth. The signature event remains the 26.2-mile marathon that begins in Two Harbors and finishes in Canal Park, with a trip through the Interstate 35 tunnels along the way. But that race is now one of a handful of races and disciplines — some with wheels, some without — that take place on race day, and just one of the many events that take place throughout the weekend. “It worked out really well and it kind of sparked in me that, ‘Hey, these roller derby enthusiasts, they’re coming up to do the race, too,’” Ward said Wednesday from his office in Canal Park. “They want to do the race for fitness and fun and team camaraderie, but they’re also interested in rolle...

Even if we go with the Bush-era figure of $6.8 million, you’re far above the often-proposed

Even if we go with the Bush-era figure of $6.8 million, you’re far above the often-proposed cap of $250,000 for noneconomic damages.  I’m morally opposed to ANY damage cap because I don’t believe that you can set a flat rate on every human’s life.  But if we’re going to do caps at all, couldn’t they at least be in line with what the feds think a human life is worth? To protests from business and praise from unions, environmentalists and consumer groups, one agency after another has ratcheted up the price of life, justifying tougher — and more costly — standards. The Environmental Protection Agency set the value of a life at $9.1 million last year in proposing tighter restrictions on air pollution. The agency used numbers as low as $6.8 million during the George W. Bush administration. The Food and Drug Administration declared that life was worth $7.9 million last year, up from $5 million in 2008, in proposing warning labels on cigarette packages featuring images of cancer victims. The Transportation Department has used values of around $6 million to justify recent decisions to impose regulations that the Bush administration had rejected as too expensive, like requiring stronger ...

Minister suspends hare coursing licences after deadly rabbit disease discovered in the wild

A DISEASE WHICH is fatal to hares and rabbits has been discovered for the first time in the wild in Ireland prompting Culture Minister Josepha Madigan to suspend coursing club licences. The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht made the announcement this afternoon in an appeal for the public to report any suspected cases to the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS). Rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD) was first reported in farmed animals in China in 1984 and wiped out millions of the animals within a year of being discovered. Animals who contract the disease display symptoms including swollen eyelids, partial paralysis and bleeding from the eyes and mouth, as well as spasms before dying within days.  The Department confirmed  the disease has been found in wild rabbits in Ireland and as hare coursing is “considered to increase the risk of disease spread,” licences for coursing clubs have been suspended.  “This is a serious development for the wild Irish hare and the decision to suspend the licences issued to the Irish Coursing Club to capture and tag hares is in the best interests of animal welfare,” Madigan said. “While there is no threat to human health, experts...

It’s been nine years since the last installment of the Pixar franchise — does the new

It’s been nine years since the last installment of the Pixar franchise — does the new one have any extras after the story ends? With “Toy Story 4,” “Child’s Play,” “Men in Black: International” and “Dark Phoenix,” June has been surprisingly full of new entries in old franchises — all of those movies are part of movie franchises that began in 2000 or earlier. Even by the sequel-heavy standards of summer, that’s pretty crazy! And while “Dark Phoenix” and the new “Men in Black” have been major disappointments at the box office, “Toy Story 4” didn’t suffer quite so dramatic a fate. What’s craziest about that fact is that “Toy Story” is the oldest of those three franchises, having kicked off with the original film back in 1995 — two years before the first “Men in Black” and five years before the first “X-Men” movie. And it also has had the longest hiatus of the trio, keeping fans waiting for this particular film for nine years since the release of “Toy Story 3.” So the big question is, does this long awaited, hugely anticipated new “Toy Story” film contain any scenes during or after the closing credits that you should stick around for? The answer is yes! Don’t move a muscle. Of cour...

Church and ministry leadership resources to better equip, train and provide ideas for today’s church and

Church and ministry leadership resources to better equip, train and provide ideas for today’s church and ministry leaders, like you. You’ve probably seen lists of Bible contradictions. Here are my favorites. Play along at home and see which of these are your list, too. My focus here is just on contradictions in the Bible. These are mostly clashes between two sets of verses in the Bible, but some are the Bible clashing with reality. (I’ve written about the Bible clashing with science here.) There are lots of contradictions that I find fairly trivial. For example, that Ahaziah was 22 (or 42) years old when he became king (2 Kings 8:26 vs. 2 Chronicles 22:2). Or that Solomon had made a basin that was ten cubits in diameter and thirty in circumference (1 Kings 7:23). The contradictions on this list are much more fundamental attacks on the Christian message. Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins (Ecclesiastes 7:20). This is standard Christian dogma, but things get confusing when you read the opening verse of Job, which says of Job, “This man was blameless and upright.” Even as his life was going to hell because of Satan and G...

Best kids’ shoe brands of 2019: Plae, TOMS, Keen, Adidas, Hush Puppies

Insider Picks writes about products and services to help you navigate when shopping online.

Finding the best shoes for your kids isn’t brain surgery, but it can still make your head hurt. This pair pinches their toes, that pair is too hard to put on, that one always falls off, and this one falls apart even before those ever-larger feet outgrow it. Even once you find a pair of comfortable, supportive shoes that your kid can get on and off with relative ease, you’ve only solved one part of the puzzle. Your kid can’t wear sneakers with a school uniform nor can they wear their dressy shoes in gym class. And you’re not going to send them off on a playdate with the same shoes they wore during the hike on Sunday, are you? No, you parents, you’re not looking for a pair of kids’ shoes, you’re looking for pairs aplenty. Do yourself a favor and do what my wife and I have learned to do: Once you find a brand of shoes that works for a certain activity — one that looks the part, that...

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Apple announced their new iPhones today. There are three new phones – iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The most affordable out of these three, the iPhone 11, only has two rear cameras (standard and ultra-wide), whereas the two top models – iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Max – feature three rear cameras – standard, telephoto, and ultra-wide. All new cameras feature 12MP sensors and are capable to record up to 4K 60fps video. FiLMiC will come with a new version of their app that will be able to record with two cameras at the same time. I monitored the Apple event in Cupertino, California and in this article I summarized all the important information about the new iPhones. I focused on their camera capabilities. The new iPhone 11 Pro comes in two sizes – iPhone 11 Pro with 5.8″ (2436 x 1125 resolution at 458 ppi) OLED display and iPhone 11 Pro Max with 6.5″ (2688 x 1242 resolution at 458 ppi) OLED display. The new iPhones offer 4 hours (5 hours for the Max version) more battery life than the previous generation. Display and batt...
