Prospect Mountain High School’sBob 319robotics team (which includes Devanee) had another bumper year, winning many titles in competitions far-and-wide, and being the runners-up in their national competition in Detroit — in April.

School is coming to an end, and the seniors like Devanee have graduated. So, this was the end-of-season congratulatory dinner for the team, all of its boosters, supporters, family and friends. It was a good night. Good and plentiful food. Everybody had fun with the night ending with a final demo of this years robot.

Aretha Franklin’s Ostentatious Gold Coffin Does Her An Injustice.

by Anura Guruge



She does NOT need a $40,000 gold coffin (and all the handles etc. are indeed real gold) to make her look good or enhance her image or reputation. This tawdry looking casket diminishes her. Yes, by all means dress her well and put jewelry on her — but she didn’t need such a casket.

I would have thought her upbringing in a religious family would have ensured humility in death. Yes, this could be her family rather than her. But, you would think they would have known better.

There is plenty of poverty in Detroit. It has one of the highest poverty rates among the 20 largest U.S. cities. I had expected better from her. C’est la vie.

This is a very BIG DEAL. “The Globals” is the World Cup of high school robotics. They are competing with teams from all over the WORLD. So, it was huge that this team from New Hampshire managed to make it. Appears that they are highly seeded and the coaches are ‘quietly confident’.
