Day 5 – Early start to a long day!

Day 5c

On Sunday morning, we had to depart by 7:30 AM to drive to the province and city of San Luis.  Although not one of the largest cities in Argentina, San Luis was perhaps the most proud.  Because of gold, San Luis, is perhaps the most affluent province in all of Argentina.  To give a sense of the affluence of this city and province, …

Day 4 – Time for some fun!

Day 4b

After an insanely successful concert at the Compañia de Jésus Church in Cordoba, Hernan, our tour guide arranged for the choir to go dancing at a local disco two blocks from the hotel.  With no other performances in Córdoba on the following day, a night out to experience Argentinian nightlife seemed reasonable.

Day 3 in Argentina was the biggest travel day of our tour!

Day 3c

Although we got an early 7:15 AM start on our trek to Cordoba, the slow travel speed of the bus and distance we needed to cover made it impossible to make our 12:00 noon arrival time.  As stated earlier, we have a double-decker bus, which is generally comfortable for the group, but difficult to negotiate in an urban environment with low trees …

This opposition notwithstanding, AIIB, has so far picked up 27 regional members and seven non-regional members, including the U.K., Germany, France and Italy. In addition, there was a virtual avalanche of applications before the …

Did They Steal The Music? Morgan Professor Weighs In For NY Times

Morgan State Newsroom

Changing copyright laws to stop infringement is like changing murder laws to stop homicides. The root of both issues is cultural. But sure, why not? Let’s change, update, remix, and mash-up copyright laws to reflect the times.  And while we’re at it, copyright laws aren’t the only laws that need an update: There are still lots of places in the …
