LSU Fights to Move up from its No.16 Rank

Louisiana State University is on bye this weekend, but the LSU Tigers will take on College Football Playoff (CFP) selection committee’s No. 6 pick Alabama when they return to the field on November 8th.

Although LSU ranks No. 16, they recently won against No. 4 Mississippi, and have only lost two games against No. 1 Mississippi State, and No. 3 Auburn.

This year is the first year that college football is following the CFP selection rankings, as opposed to the previous Bowl Championship Series (BCS) rankings.

The BCS rankings are said to have led to too much controversy over the years and the CFP is a newer system that it is initiating this year. The CFP is comprised of a 12-member committee that will compile the rankings of the top 25 teams. The teams that land in the top four spots are the ones who will get to compete in a playoff that will then decide the national championship. Even though the new system is supposed to be a resolution to the controversy issues, some are skeptical that there is still bias present in the rankings.

Whether you are a college football fanatic, or a high school senior applying to college, the LSU Tigers are a force to be reckoned with and rank among the top 10 college football teams in the nation. If you are moving to Baton Rouge to attend LSU, let All My Sons Moving & Storage make your move simple and fun so that you do not miss the weekly game.

Black Thursday in Knoxville: A New Tradition?

For many shoppers, Black Friday is now Black Thursday. However, not every store is honoring the change.

In fact, most people believe that Black Friday should remain Black Friday and that Thursday should be for family time only, and that store employees should not have to work on Thanksgiving.

If you are moving to Knoxville, here is a list of store openings for the upcoming holiday.

1) Macy’s – 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day

2) Best Buy – 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day

3) Walmart – 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day

4) Toys R Us – 5 p.m. Thanksgiving Day

Opposition to the Black Thursday change have sparked dispute and has even lead to the creation of a Facebook group, “Boycott Black Thursday” which already has 50,000 members. The page aims to bring community awareness to retail stores, that residents and employees would rather spend time with their families than shop on the holiday.

Stores that have joined the movement and have announced that they will remain closed, as tradition, are:

1) American Girl

2) BJ’s

3) Burlington

4) Costco

5) Dillard’s

6) Marshalls

7) Homegoods

8) Nordstrom

9) Pier 1 Imports

10) T.J.Maxx

Among the major chains that have not yet released their holiday hours are: Target, JCPenney, and Kohl’s, but all were open on Thanksgiving Day last year.

Don’t just save your money this holiday season, save time and let All My Sons Moving & Storage of Knoxville assist you in your moving needs so that you can be settled in just in time for the new year!

Milwaukee Art Museum Renovation

As previously mentioned, the Milwaukee Art Museum has been featuring the ‘Of Heaven and Earth’ exhibition which consists of great artists such as Bellini, Botticelli, and Titian. Although the museum is continuing the exhibit through the end of the year, they are discontinuing their ‘classic’ pieces temporarily. By November, the Milwaukee Art Museum’s traditional pieces will be rotating out for a full year as they begin the museums renovation.

The Milwaukee Art Museum has become one of the most significant art museums in the region and is due for a renovation in order to continue to serve future visitors. Complete restorations will be done in both the Saarinen and Kahler buildings that generally houses over 30,000 works of art. The renovation will make the complex more energy efficient, improve lighting, create more gallery space, fix deferred maintenance, and provide an additional lakeside entrance.

So if you have not visited the museum’s permanent collection, be sure to visit the works of artists such as Pablo Picasso before they are closed until next fall. However, if you are in the process of moving to Milwaukee and will not be able to make the deadline, don’t worry. Milwaukee Art Museum is still featuring several rare collections that you can enjoy in the meantime while renovations are being made.

Marylanders’ Gas Pump Prices drop below $3

The nation is witnessing decreasing gas prices and Marylanders are filling up their tanks, fast!

Although gas prices are usually lower in the fall than in the summer, the recent weeks have brought a drastic drop that we have not seen in years.

In July, the price of crude oil by the barrel was over $100. On Monday, the nation saw the prices at the pump drop an average of 11 cents, due to the current barrel cost of only $80.

Marylanders have been seeing $2.99 per gallon signs and stopping to fill up as soon as possible before prices inevitably increase again. However, driver advocacy group AAA expects prices to drop another 20 cents by the end of the year.

Averages across Baltimore are $3.04, $2.99, $2.98, and $2.96. According to AAA, the rates are 25 cents less than they were last year and 17 states are seeing an average of less than $3 per gallon.

Maryland residents welcome the new fuel costs and say that it will give them a little extra pocket cash to be able to go to a nice dinner, see a movie, or do something with the family on the weekend, and more excitingly…on Halloween!

The extra pocket cash that people are likely to spend within their local business market, will stimulate the local economy and cause a positive ripple effect.

If you are planning on making a trip to Maryland or moving to Maryland before the end of 2014, be sure to take advantage of the ultra-low fuel costs and save money on your vacation or move.

Athletic Women Excel of Tulsa

Athletes have been used as an iconic image for a strong, powerful, and healthy person. However, when we talk about athletes many of us immediately think professional athletes, which is not always the case.

Everyone has the potential to be an athlete whether they go professional or not. There are many unspoken benefits of being an athlete of all kinds, which Athletic Women Excel of Tulsa is trying to promote.

AWE Tulsa is a new initiative introduced by the Tulsa Sports Commission that wants to educate females on how they can own their bodies and fight past their comfort zones.

Being an athlete, you learn about defeat and how to pick yourself back up again. You learn how to push yourself past your comfort zone to do better and be better. Perhaps most importantly, you develop a sense of confidence that you otherwise would not have.

Aside from health benefits and physical appearance, AWE Tulsa pushes female athletes in order to promote the benefiting characteristics that participating in athletics can have. The Tulsa Sports Commission is hopeful that this initiative will bring a new focus on womens’ athletic events and programs to Tulsa. If you are a woman and moving to Tulsa, be sure to take a look at this new initiative taking place in the Tulsa community.
