North Olmsted's Brian Rector wins 400th career match and B-W Stays Unbeaten With 9-0 Win Versus Otterbein
Baldwin-Wallace College men's tennis coach Brian Rector won his 400th career match and his Yellow Jackets remained unbeaten at 15-0 overall with a 9-0 shutout victory against Ohio Athletic Conference rival Otterbein University on Saturday, in its OAC opener at the "Pop" Collins Tennis Courts.

With the win against Otterbein, Rector, a 1986 North Olmsted High School graduate, 1989 B-W graduate and former Academic All-American, is an amazing 400-83 in 23 seasons at his alma mater. He is the winningest tennis coach in OAC and Ohio collegiate tennis history.
"I am excited about winning my 400th career match and equally excited that our team is now 15-0 this season," said a smiling Rector. "To be able to win 400 matches takes the hard work, dedication, determination and efforts of a lot of young men over the past 23 years. Outstanding, talented student-athletes make a coach look great, and over the years, I have had the opportunity to coach many great, young student-athletes. We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished both in the classroom and on the tennis courts at B-W and just hope we can keep doing it for a long time to come."

Column: College salary system outmoded

No public expenditure has a more productive impact on a nation's health than its investment in education. But college costs have risen faster than inflation for three decades and, at roughly 25 percent of the average household's income, now strain the budgets of most middle-class families.

They impose an unprecedented debt burden on graduates and place college out of reach for many. This makes President Barack Obama's recent statement that college is "an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford" an especially urgent message.
As a career-long academic and former university chancellor, I support this position. But I disagree with its assumption that the answer to rising college costs is to throw more public money into the system. In fact, increased public support has probably facilitated rising tuition. Overlooked in the debate are reforms for outmoded employment policies that overcompensate faculty for inefficient teaching schedules.

Through the first half of the 20th century faculties in academic institutions were generally underpaid relative to other comparably educated members of the workforce. Teaching was viewed as a "calling" in the tradition of tweed jackets, pipe tobacco and avuncular campus life. Trade-offs for modest salaries were found in the relaxed lifestyle of college and university communities, which, to varying degrees, were retreats from the pressures of the real world, reflected in such benefits as tenure, light teaching loads, long summer vacations and sabbaticals.
With the 1970s advent of collective bargaining in higher education, this began to change. The result has been more equitable circumstances for college faculty members, who deserve salaries comparable to those of other educated professionals. Happily, senior faculty at most state universities and colleges now earn $80,000 to $150,000, roughly in line with the average incomes of other Americans who hold advanced degrees.

Not changed, however, are the accommodations designed to compensate for low pay in earlier times. Though faculty salaries now mirror those of most upper-middle-class Americans working 40 hours for 50 weeks, they generally continue to pay for teaching time of nine to 15 hours per week for 30 weeks, with a month-long winter break, a week off in the spring and a summer vacation from mid-May until September.
Such a teaching schedule may be appropriate in research universities where standards for faculty employment are exceptionally high − and are based on the premise that critically important work, along with research-driven teaching, can best be performed outside the classroom. The faculties of research universities are at the center of America's progress in intellectual, technological and scientific pursuits, and there should be no quarrel with their financial rewards or schedules. Indeed, they often work hours well beyond those of average middle-class professionals.

Unfortunately, the salaries and the workloads applied to the highest echelons of faculty have been grafted onto colleges whose primary mission is teaching, not research. These include many state colleges, virtually all community colleges and hundreds of private institutions.

What's Left of Marni for H&M in LA

If you're still on the hunt for Marni for H&M loot, a Racked tipster reveals that, even after Americana at Brand's impromptu relaunch of the collab, the store remains surprisingly well-stocked: "Tons of stuff at Americana; 2 racks of the patent leather top, in 2 colors. All the way in the back of the store, first floor." This nuggets of news inspired us to check in with the rest of the stores in our LA shopping guide to hear what they've managed to hold on to.
Beverly Center: "All women's items were sold on launch day, but there are still some men's button-downs, T-shirts and jackets available."
West Hollywood: "We're completely out of accessories. Some men's bulk items are available, and about 50 to 70 pieces of women's jackets, shirts and skirts in various sizes."
South Coast Plaza: "A handful of men's and women's garments in four or five styles. No accessories."
