The Daily Word in our high-tech legacy, Darren White and a dry river
By August March [ Thu Jul 28 2016 11:34 AM ]
Our city's high-tech legacy should be leveraged toward tourism and convention growth, say experts in the travel and airline industry.
Lockheed Martin has enlisted New Mexico Tech as a partner in its bid to assume management of Sandia National Laboratories.
DOJ Federal Monitor James Ginger will release his third report on APD reform efforts today.
Former Bernalillo County Sheriff and New Mexico Secretary of Public Safety Darren White says, "This year I can’t back the GOP," and has consequently endorsed his former boss, Gary Johnson, for POTUS.
High temperatures, sparse rainfall and the subsequent need for more water by farmers along the middle Rio Grande have resulted in a 17 mile section of the river running dry.
Trout fishing along the Pecos River can be enhanced by using simulators, bead-head prince nymphs or worms; meanwhile try angling at Isleta Lakes in the early morning while using garlic chicken liver or shrimp as bait.
Meanwhile, here's some local hip-hop about our fabulous Duke City!

Yeezus comin’ on June 18
Kanye West’s newest LP confirmed
By Mark Lopez [ Mon May 20 2013 2:47 PM ]
Think what you will about Kanye West. Personally, I’ve always appreciated his music, but his personality always got in the way of me finding him likable. So, I just tend not to focus on him outside of his righteous rhymes. Sure, the rapper has garnered himself some controversy. (Remember that whole Taylor Swift speech interruption? Way to steal a young girl’s spotlight, K-Dubs). But music blogs are going nuts today over the announcement that West’s upcoming record, titled Yeezus, is dropping on June 18 and is already available to preorder on iTunes.
West performed two new tracks from his forthcoming LP on “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend, giving fans a taste of what’s to come. And Kim Kardashian posted a photo on Instragram, which has already been confirmed to be the cover art for the album. You know ... because they gotta keep it in the family (but only if it’s in front of the entire world). So, be on the lookout for what will no doubt be another interesting and thought-provoking record from one of hip-hop’s most notable figures.
