You’ve seen the tiny house shows, you’ve thought about how cool it would be to pack up and live light, but if you’ve never actually gotten to experience a tiny home, the Creative Animal Foundation will be at Athens Technical College on Monday showing the possibilities of 200-square-foot living and the value of living sustainably.
Classroom talks will start at 9 a.m., and from noon–5 p.m. the tiny house will be open to the public for viewing. You’ll also get the chance to talk sustainability with tour hosts Stephanie Arne, co-founder and board president of CAF, and Tim Davison, co-founder and board vice-president.
Forty-three teams from high schools across the state gathered inside Stegeman Coliseum last weekend to take part in the Peachtree State Championship Qualifying FIRST Robotics Competition.
Teams were divided into two sides, red and blue. Each match consisted of three red and three blue teams—each with its own robot—competing to see which team could complete a series a tasks first.
A red team consisting of OTTO from Forsyth Central High School, RoboMustangs from Meadowcreek High School and RoboBibb from Bibb County high schools won the state championship.
Those teams, along with 12 others from Georgia, will participate in the national championship in Houston, which kicks off Apr. 19.

Former Florida congressman, tea party star and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West was at the University of Georgia on Tuesday to talk about “the war on radical Islam,” embracing President Trump’s travel ban from certain Muslim nations while criticizing U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East dating back to the 1970s.
West began by reading 1786 letter written by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson about the Barbary Pirates off North Africa to describe a long, contentious relationship between America and Islam.
This was part of a highly-rehearsed presentation, noted one student who said he has seen West speak before. West was “painting a picture of ‘us versus them’” by tracing the history of an entire religion back to terrorist group, the student said, and criticized him for seeming to lump all Muslims into the “extremist category.”
West disagreed—it’s they who paint this picture, he said. “I’m not making any of this up. We’ve been dealing with this since 1786.”
The University of Georgia's independently organized version of the famed TED Talks is happening from 1–5 p.m. today, and they'll be streamed on Facebook Live so you can avoid work and watch from the comfort of your own office.
Check out the list of presenters—all UGA students and alumni—here. We're proud to say they include Flagpole contributor Carolyn Crist, who's also an adjunct professor at the Grady College of Journalism and co-owner of printing company Pixel & Ink.

It's that time of year again: Pollen is filling our noses, spring is in the air, and the Georgia legislature is trying to pass another campus carry bill.
A group of over 200 students and other protesters gathered in front of the UGA Arch Tuesday afternoon, chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, campus carry has got to go,” and holding signs.
Speakers included professors, students and survivors of the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007.
“The majority of UGA feels that this bill will make our campus less safe,” said student Mallory Harris, who organized the protest.
