Re: “Will Puckett bids farewell to the Queen City

Quiet Jenna, unless you're going to work as hard as he did to create something wonderful...

Re: “Will Puckett bids farewell to the Queen City

Jenna, you are incorrect on how much he got paid, and honestly why does it matter? NoDa, other neighborhoods, and galleries are made more rich by having this kind of art. I am certain the hours, days, weeks he spent creating his art are worth more.

Re: “Will Puckett bids farewell to the Queen City

Everyone would be shocked if they knew how much he got paid for these murals. (Some $50k each)

Some of them are good (Jack Beagles) and some of them are practically theft from neighborhood coffers (Cordelia Park lookout).

Re: “Uber, Lyft and Yellow Cab ­— how do they compare?

From what I've read, Uber is increasingly involved in arranging the financing and/or leasing of the cars. It is a way for people who lack the credit history to buy a new car to get one for non-uber uses. Traditional car leases are a trap for an uber driver - they get the income upfront without realizing running the wheels off a leased car will kill them at the end of the lease. Uber announced a partnership with Hertz a month or two ago where Hertz will lease cars for $180 a week (including insurance) without a mileage charge

Some uber drivers keep driving even though they are unhappy because they obligated themselves to pay uber each week for the car.

Re: “Underground midwives flout N.C. law to give moms-to-be more choices

I am from NC and conceived there. But thank God I moved to FL when I was 3 months into my pregnancy. I had a doula and 2 midwives. I did all of my prenatal care at The Palms Birth House instead of a regular OBGYN. I chose to be natural bc thats the way its always been meant to be. The US is the only country that teats pregnancy like an illness instead of a miracle. The birth house is safe and has a direct partnership with Boca Reginald Hospital (which advocates natural birth bscrein case of emergency. The birth house does a "high risk" screening before they begin any type of prenatal care. If you are low-risk they train you to prepare for your babybaby's birth the natural way... With water birth being an option for you also. I waa low risk but at 42 weeks my little guy still had not come and my amniotic fluid was drying up so I had to be checked into Boca Reginald Hospital. I was still able to deliver naturally and my midwives were both in the room along with a pro-natural dr. The problem is that drs say they support your choice to be natural but are quick to force interventions down your throat at the first sign of complication. I am supposed to be moving back to NC to marry the man of my dreams, but reading this article makes me 2nd guess settling there. I dont want to have to sneak around... I want to have all of my children the way God intended me to. No drugs, no knives just me, my doula, my midwife, my spouse, my baby and God. Women have been pushing out babies since before men started calling themselves drs. Let the women choose what they want! If something should go wrong then put it on their choice... Just like you would if they were at a hospital with some random dr on call in their room. Let us choose! And midwives make it all possible. I wouldnt want to put anyone in danger but if i should find myself pregnant and in nc i will choose midwifrey any and everyday.
