Stephen Owens 25 January 2010 MC 3101- Section 002 Advocate News The most newsworthy article on the front page of the January 21 edition of The Advocate is headlined “La. to join prison project.” This story impacts every taxpayer in Louisiana. The removal of non-violent inmates helps lowers the burden on all taxpayers, as the state has to spend less on incarceration fees. It’s also impactful on the incarcerated and their families. Louisiana has the nation’s highest incarceration rate, but Jindal said “more than 90 percent of Louisiana’s prisoners will eventually be released and re-enter the public.” This prison project will help the prisoners make an easier transition back into society. The article also has elements of prominence. Gov. Jindal is one of the most prominent people in Louisiana. Another article on the front page of The Advocate is headlined “Lincoln Theater earns spot on National Register.” This story shows prominence in that this run-down Baton Rouge theater has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
