15 Years Later We Still Remember

With the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, MBU Timeline staffers conducted spot interviews with several individuals on the Missouri Baptist University campus regarding where they were during the attack, what it was like growing up after and how they think the attack shaped the world today.

If I Had a BILLION Dollars … I’d Be Rich

The largest Powerball jackpot in history climbed to $1.6 billion — that’s BILLION — before three winning tickets produced the magic numbers recently, in California, Tennessee and Florida. Each winner will walk away with more than $330 million after taxes. In an instant lives are changed, bank accounts will soar, wildest dreams will be realized and, undoubtedly, problems will arise. One couple sharing a winning ticket, from Tennessee, has come forward, but the other two winners remain in hiding, no doubt getting their financial affairs in order before claiming more money than they could ever imagine. So we’ve asked MBU Timeline writers to blog about what they would do with that kind of money, this unimaginable wealth that has us all pondering, wishing … perhaps hoping. And we have also sent reporters out across campus to ask faculty, staff and students the same question: What would you do with all that money?
