The athletic department, the fans, the university. We just found out who the Holy Father is when it comes to setting the course for saving (selling) our conference salvation. The fans are the Spirit. Crucial, but assumed as an ethereal constant and taken for granted no matter the spiritual terrain, largely ignored in all of this. The Son, surprisingly, is the University. Right now both are wondering: Father, Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me?

Some employers and insurers have also developed “wellness” programs that cut insurance premiums for patients who lose weight or stop smoking. An article in the Times on Monday describes an approach that is gaining ground: paying people to take their medications to avoid the much larger costs of hospitalization. Do monetary incentives work? Do such payments raise ethical questions or alter the doctor-patient relationship? James C. Capretta , ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
