Radical change author speaks at NSU

On April 7, 2014, NSU will have host Sam Bracken, author of “My Orange Duffel Bag: A Journey to Radical Change.”

He will give a keynote lecture on Monday, April 7 at 7 p.m. in the NSU Center for the Performing Arts.

Bracken will share his incredible story of how he overcame being knocked down time and time again while growing up.

His message will include seven rules for the road and lessons for being successful in life.

This author discusses how he was homeless at age 15, but managed to turn his life around and graduate 11th out of 700 students from his Las Vegas high school.

Braken also received a full-ride scholarship to The Georgia Institute of Technology and becoming successful in his own personal life.

The title of his graphic mini-memoir self-help book comes from the fact that when he came to Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Ga., everything he owned fit in an orange duffle bag.

Many NSU students are already familiar with Bracken’s book, as it was used as the common read in the fall semester by NSU’s President’s Leadership Class, RISE and the Honor’s Program.

Braken will have a book signing immediately following his lecture at the NSU RiverHawk Shoppe.

This event is sponsored by the NSU Foundation and Masonic Leadership Endowment.

  • It could be called the Ten Commandments of Major League Baseball, even though it’s 74 pages long. Or perhaps, since it has just been discovered, it could be baseball’s version of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Regardless, the 1876 “Founding Documents and Original Constitution of Major League Baseball” are a valuable piece of sports memorabilia. The documents will go on sale May 24 in online bidding sponsored by SCP Auctions, Sports Collectors Daily reported. The artifact is a handwritten document that officials from California-based SCP Auctions claim is of “unprecedented historical significance.” The contents became part of baseball’s early bylaws, but the location of the original documents had been a mystery. They had been in the possession of the family of a longtime National League executive and had been passed down through the generations, Sports Collectors Daily reported. “This is a huge revelation,” SCP Auctions Vice President Dan Imler told USA Today. “This is not a document that has made the rounds publicly. It’s never been exhibited in a major institution. It’s never been sold previously in a prior auction. It has never appeared anywhere.” The baseball constitution continues a trend of originating documents that have come to auction. In 2016, SCP Auctions sold a set of 1857 documents representing the original rules of baseball for $3.26 million on auction, Sports Collectors Daily reported. James Naismith’s original 13-page “Rules of Basket Ball” sold for $4.34 million in 2010 by Sotheby’s to a consortium put together by Josh Swade, who chronicled his quest in his 2013 book, “The Holy Grail of Hoops One Fan’s Quest to Buy the Original Rules of Basketball,” and in an ESPN documentary. The SCP auction for the baseball constitution documents will close on June 10.
  • New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said the city would begin to take down the first of four Confederate monuments early Monday, Fox News reported, while a group that sued the city to halt the action held a vigil in protest. The Liberty Monument, erected in 1891, is an obelisk that commemorates the Crescent City White League, which tried to overthrow a biracial government in New Orleans after the Civil War. Landrieu called the Liberty Monument “the most offensive of the four” and said it was erected to “revere white supremacy,” Fox News reported. “If there was ever a statue that needed to be taken down, it’s that one,” Landrieu said. Meanwhile, the Monumental Task Committee began holding a vigil at midnight at the Jefferson Davis statue, WWL reported. Landrieu has begun reviewing a bid for the removal of the Davis, Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard statues, WWL reported. A City Hall spokesman issued a statement Sunday, saying that the city is “committed to taking down the Confederate monuments.” 
  • It’s been two years since Broken Arrow High School released a Lip Dub video. The 2017 video was well worth the wait. The video had nearly 20,000 views after just a few days online.
  • The state of Arkansas plans to conduct a double execution on Monday. Two condemned killers who admit they're guilty but fear poor health could lead to extreme pain during lethal injections might become the first inmates put to death in a double execution in the U.S. in more than 16 years. Jack Jones (pictured, left) and Marcel Williams are set to die Monday night. If put to death, they would be the second and third Arkansas inmates executed this month. Arkansas originally wanted to execute eight inmates before one of its lethal injection drugs expires at the end of the month in the nation's most aggressive execution schedule since the U.S. Supreme Court restored the death penalty in 1976. Arkansas put Ledell Lee to death last week in its first execution since 2005. Another inmate, Kenneth Williams, is set for execution Thursday.
  • Saturday, funeral services were held in Tulsa, for Oklahoma State Rep. David Brumbaugh. He passed away last weekend due to an apparent heart attack. Friends, family and colleagues had nothing but good things to say about Brumbaugh. “Every time that he spoke, he did it not because of what he thought politically, but because it’s what he thought was right,” one colleague said.  “Hopefully, those of us that are still there will be able to follow that.” The service was held at Tulsa Bible Church.  During the service, Brumbaugh was remembered as a man dedicated to public service and to his faith.
