BBB’s Ethical Athlete Scholarships

Being a great athlete isn’t just about running the fastest or jumping the highest. It’s also about doing the right thing. That’s why Better Business Bureau (BBB) has partnered with Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) to recognize Arizona high school athletes whose ethics standout to coaches, teammates, and fans. Do you know an athlete that does the right thing on and off the field? Nominate them today we’re at BBB ethical athlete’s scholarship, click here to see more details.

The Better Business Bureau has partnered with Isagenix to recognize high school athletes doing the right thing on and off the court. Two athletes are chosen each month during the school year. Each month a $1,000 scholarship is issued to one male and one female. Then, all the winners during the school year are eligible for the “Ethical Champion” at the end of the school year and two of our winners (again, one male, one female) will receive an additional $2,500 scholarship.

Do you know the next the winner? We’ve already had three winners in Mohave County – two from Mohave High School and one from Lake Havasu High School and hopefully more to come!

“Is This the Life We Really Want?” releases today
First album of new material for Roger Waters in 25 years coincides with North American tour

Today Sony/Columbia releases Roger Waters’ “Is This the Life We Really Want?”

The 12-track album is the first album of new material from the co-founder of Pink Floyd since 1992’s “Amused to Death.”

Sony/Columbia describes the album as “an unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times” and “a natural successor to classic Pink Floyd albums such as ‘Animals’ and ‘The Wall.'”

It’s produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, U2).

Tracklist for the album is as follows:

  1.     When We Were Young
  2.     Déjà Vu
  3.     The Last Refugee
  4.     Picture That
  5.     Broken Bones
  6.     Is This the Life We Really Want?
  7.     Bird in a Gale
  8.     The Most Beautiful Girl
  9.     Smell the Roses
  10.     Wait for Her
  11.     Oceans Apart
  12.     Part of Me Died

“Smell the Roses” and “Deja Vu” were released as advance singles on April 21 and May 8, respectively.

Musicians on “Is This the Life We Really Want?” include: Waters (vocals, acoustic, bass), Godrich (arrangement, sound collages, keyboards, guitar), Gus Seyffert (bass, guitar, keyboards), Jonathan Wilson (guitar, keyboards), Joey Waronker (drums), Roger Manning (keyboards), Lee Pardini (keyboards), and Lucius (vocals) with Jessica Wolfe and Holly Proctor.
