    A water sports revolution is coming to Tulsa

    Oklahoma was among the first states to implement universal pre-K, programs for 4-year-olds offered by public schools. Only eight states fund pre-K for all children. Ginnie Graham and Bob Doucette talk about the positive impacts of this program and more. Mayor G.T. Bynum made a social media post recently that caught my eye: A 3D computer animated tour of construction projects happening now on the Arkansas River just south of the area we know as Zink Lake. Zink Lake doesn’t look very lake-ish right now. Water flowing down the Arkansas has been on the ebb for some time, much in part due to dry conditions that have…

    Opinion | China is coming for American video games

    Fans of video games should pay heed to the fate of big Hollywood studios — which first ceded creative control to Chinese censors in pursuit of box-office gold and then found themselves floundering when China largely closed its borders to Hollywood products — as China’s government-allied businesses acquire a larger stake in the global gaming industry. It makes sense that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its business affiliates would set their sights on video games. The overall size of the gaming market dwarfs that of the global box office. The largest player in this space is Tencent, “the world’s biggest game company.” The company’s first big purchase was Riot…

    Sports News: Big changes coming to NIL rules?

    A change to the NIL rules of college sports might be changing sooner rather than later. According to Ross Dellenger, college leaders want the NCAA to start investigating recruiting violations related to NIL. Under current NCAA rules, NIL does not mean pay-for-play, meaning boosters cannot legally agree to pay money for a certain recruit/transfer to commit to a school for money or a guaranteed NIL deal. Under new ruling, schools with boosters that have communicated with players before their commitment would be sanctioned. In recent days, reports have surfaced of alleged tampering of Pittsburgh Panthers wideout Jordan Addison, and a potential NIL deal related to the USC Trojans, even going…
