I was pretty excited to be able to come and have part of my school paid for because of the scholarship, Jonessaid He majored in apparel merchandising and product development at the university. While there, he transformed his love for fashion into a shoe business called Like Father Like Son. Its a company that creates matching dress shoes for fathers and their sons. Jones is now in the works of launching his own business, which includes a line of bold-colored and sophisticated shoe designs. He wants to make sure the shoes affordable for everyone. He added that is important because he grew up not being able to afford many shoes. My motto is vintage with a twist, so I just add my own touch to it, Jones said. Part of his fashionsense comes from his mother, who he says was known in life for her flashy hats and passion of shoes. She died a few weeks agofrom an unexpected health complication. It was three weeks before she could watch Jones walk across the stage to get his diploma. This tragedy hasnt slowed him down. It has actually made him more determined to chase his dreams and make his mom proud.

Giant posters depicted Assad and his Christian ally, Russian President Vladimir Putin. In live footage shown on state television, a woman identified as the mother of slain Syrian soldier carried her son's picture alongside an image of the Virgin Mary. "I am sure his soul is in peace now because Aleppo has been liberated," she said. Although some Christians stayed on the sidelines of the civil war, many saw the rise of Islamic State and other Sunni Muslim insurgent groups as a threat to the very existence of their communities, some as old as the bible. The Christian population of Aleppo has shrunk since the start of the conflict to around 50,000 from 250,000 according to Bakhash. FIGHTING IN RURAL AREAS Outside the city, rebels still hold at least 40 percent of Aleppo province, and rebels have still fired sporadic shells from the fringes of the city to the south. Russian jets resumed heavy strikes on rebel-held rural areas of Aleppo province after a pause during a ceasefire to complete the evacuation of rebels from the city. A bombing raid in the rebel-held town of Atareb in western Aleppo countryside killed at least seven refugees who had fled from the city under the evacuation deal, a local resident said. Some people who fled east Aleppo earlier in the war have begun returning to inspect homes in neighborhoods reduced to rubble by years of aerial bombing, which intensified last year when Russia joined the war. The army and pro-government militias are still combing parts of east Aleppo. Rebels accuse the pro-government forces of carrying out summary executions of scores of youths who stayed behind, and say looting has been rampant.
I could not. I fell all the way in, and if theyd even tried a little to compel me, I would have become a devotee in a hot second. *** I always knew Id be an easy get for any cult. My first inclination is to agree with anything a person is saying to me. I can shut this off once I get to know someone and it turns out theyre my enemy or loathsome in some way, but always, when I first meet a person I want to be seen as agreeable and pleasant. As a freshman in college I was befriended by a cool sophomore named Cambria a name that should belong to a fashion designer or an era, not a regular college kid who told me about this great moneymaking venture she was getting into. Its called a pyramid scheme, she said. And heres why it cant lose. Say no more, I said. And take 100 dollars from me.
