Edward C. Baig USA TODAY Published 1:08 PM EST Mar 6, 2019 You grab your keys, smartphone and wallet when you leave the house. Would it be such a disaster if you left that last one behind? In the not too distant future, it may not be. Your physical wallet is on borrowed time. Your phone, after all, increasingly provides the utility in digital form for the many reasons you schlep a Costanza-sized billfold in the first place, from showing off pictures to making mobile payments.

‘This Is Not Who I Am’: For Harvard Admissions Dean, The Trial Is Personal The trial investigating whether the College discriminates against Asian-Americans could decide the fate of affirmative action in America. But for Dean of Admissions William R. Fitzsimmons '67, it could also decide who he is at Harvard — and how he is remembered. Harvard's long-serving Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid William R.

Almost one of every two people living in the region drew a paycheck by August. Employers added 4,500 new positions from May into August, when 655,500 payroll jobs were counted in metropolitan Memphis. Historic? In a way.

We don’t give up this many yards to no team. I don’t care who it is, what receivers they got. We’re DBU.
