    What to Know

    The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the NC State Wolfpack will face off in an ACC clash at 7 p.m. ET Jan. 17 at McCamish Pavilion. NC State should still be riding high after a victory, while the Yellow Jackets will be looking to get back in the win column.

    The contest between Georgia Tech and the Pittsburgh Panthers this past Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Georgia Tech falling 71-60 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. One thing holding Georgia Tech back was the mediocre play of guard Miles Kelly, who did not have his best game: he finished with only six points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 27 minutes on the court.

    Meanwhile, it was a close one, but this past Saturday NC State sidestepped the Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes for an 83-81 win. The Wolfpack relied on the efforts of forward Ernest Ross, who had 17 points in addition to nine boards, and forward DJ Burns, who had 13 points and seven assists along with nine rebounds. Ross hadn’t helped his team much against the Virginia Tech Hokies two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Ross’ points were the most he has had all season.

FDA should OK easier access to drug that reverses overdoses

  • Endnotes
  • The federal government appears to be on the verge of doing something right for a change—shocking, I know.

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is mulling a proposal [1] to make certain naloxone products, which reverse drug overdoses, available over-the-counter.

    The FDA generally doesn’t take such actions lightly—and in fact has a reputation for its long delays. Yet in this case, there’s room for cautious optimism. The agency might do the right thing—easing the opioid epidemic in Georgia and across the country in the process.

    In 2020, there were over 68,000 opioid overdose-related deaths [2] in America—over 1,300 of which [3] happened in the Peach State. That number accounts for two thirds of Georgia’s overdose deaths, and trend lines show that the opioid epidemic will likely only get worse in the near future.

    “Opioid-involved overdose deaths have been rapidly increasing in Georgia since 2010, driven largely by increased use and misuse of prescription opioids (e.g., Oxycodone and Hydrocodone),” wrote the Georgia Department of Public Health [4]. “Beginning in 2013, illicit opioids such as heroin and fentanyl drove the sharp increase in opioid-involved overdose deaths.” Put simply, the opioid epidemic is very real and has sadly touched myriad families.

    Faced with mounting deaths, many public health professionals increasingly looked to naloxone to reverse opioid overdoses. First approved in 1971 [5], naloxone is now available in injectable and nasal spray forms, and it combats overdoses by restoring normal breathing. It works remarkably fast too—sometimes within 2-3 minutes [6]—and essentially poses no threat [7] to people who haven’t ingested opioids.

Georgia Tech Baseball Begins Season Unranked In D1 Baseball Top 25

  • More Georgia Tech Related Content:
  • It was not completely unexpected, but Georgia Tech Baseball is going to start the season unranked in the D1 Baseball top 25 rankings. 

    The Yellow Jackets are going to have to replace several star players from last year’s team that got drafted into the MLB Draft. Kevin Parada, Tres Gonzalez, Zach Maxwell, Marquis Grissom Jr, and Tim Borden are all gone, just to name a few. Nine players total were selected in the draft and that is a lot of talent for any program to try and replace.





    In total, there were seven ACC teams that made the cut for the top 25, led by No. 6 Wake Forest. No. 12 North Carolina, No. 14 Virginia Tech, No. 16 Louisville, No. 19 Virginia, No. 21 NC State, and No. 22 Miami joined the Demon Deacons in the rankings.

    LSU will begin the season ranked No. 1 and there are seven SEC teams in the top 10. 






    Despite the talent leaving, there is still plenty in Atlanta to win this season. Stephen Reid, Jackson Finley, Jake DeLeo, Jack Rubenstein, Drew Compton, Cody Carwile, Logan McGuire, Aeden Finateri, and Jadyn Jackson are some of the players that are back. If those experienced players take a leap and the young talent can provide a spark, this team is going to surprise people. 



    Georgia Tech baseball opens its season with a three-game home series against Miami (OH) on February 17th.

Georgia Prepares to Launch Digital Lari Pilot in First Half of 2023

  • Georgia Prepares to Launch Digital Lari Pilot in First Half of 2023

    The central bank of Georgia intends to publish a document detailing the concept of a national digital currency in the coming months. Other participating parties will use it to finalize their proposals for the pilot which the monetary authority plans to initiate in the first half of the year.

    Financial Authorities in Georgia Gear Up for Digital Currency Trials

    The National Bank of Georgia (NBG) is going to release a ‘digital lari’ whitepaper, allowing potential partners to fine-tune their proposals for the test phase of the project. A pilot version of the central bank digital currency (CBDC) was initially expected in 2022 but the NBG postponed the trials for this year.

    “In the first half of 2023, we will publish the document and soon after that, together with the winning partner, we will discuss how long it would take to implement the project,” Deputy Governor Papuna Lezhava explained in an interview with the Rustavi 2 TV channel.

    Several alternative approaches to testing the digital incarnation of the Georgian lari have been approved already, the official further revealed. Noting that it remains to be decided whether to continue with the realization of the project, Lezhava said:

New Bill Would Ban Feds from Working with Big Tech to Censor Americans


Leading Republican lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives filed new legislation that would ban federal employees from working with big tech companies to censor Americans.

The bill comes as ongoing reports show that federal law enforcement and the White House have regularly communicated with social media companies like Facebook and Twitter, pressuring the companies to remove posts and accounts for a range of issues, including questioning the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The collusion between bureaucrats and Big Tech has gone on for far too long. Government agencies shouldn’t censor the free speech of Americans,” said Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who is helping lead the effort. “The Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act is an important first step toward transparency and accountability for Biden’s bureaucrats and Big Tech.”

The bill would prevent federal officials from using their influence or authority, “including contracting, grantmaking, rulemaking, licensing, permitting, investigatory, or enforcement actions – to promote the censorship of lawful speech or advocate that a third party or private entity censor speech.”

For violators, the bill uses the same penalties for violations of the Hatch Act, which can include removal, fines, or a reduction in pay. The bill singles out high level officials, banning them from personally advocating for this kind of censorship.

The House now has a Republicans majority, emboldening those lawmakers. However, their legislation will still have a tough time in the divided Senate and faces a potential veto from President Joe Biden.

Dykes: ‘Battle-hardened’ TCU put pieces together



No. 3 TCU enters the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday against No. 1 Georgia as a 12.5-point underdog, but first-year coach Sonny Dykes said Tuesday that the Horned Frogs believe they shed the label of a Cinderella team weeks ago.

TCU was picked to finish seventh in the Big 12 conference and is now in position to win the program’s first national title since 1938. Dykes conceded that most within the program would admit this past summer they didn’t think they’d be playing for the national title.

It wasn’t that they didn’t think they were capable of it, Dykes said, “we just hadn’t done it together.”

That mentality began to change, he said, following a three-game stretch that included wins against West Virginia, Texas and Baylor.

“I think that point, our guys started to believe, ‘OK, we’re a real football team and we’re a battle-hardened team and we’ve had to overcome some adversity,'” Dykes said. “And you know what? We have a chance to make a run.”

TCU, which went 12-0 during the regular season before losing in overtime to Kansas State in the Big 12 championship game, has proven skeptics wrong all season, and will have one last chance to defy the odds on the sport’s biggest stage. TCU could become the first team since Georgia in 1990 to win the national title after being unranked in the preseason Associated Press poll, which began in 1950.

“When you hear about how you’re about to lose to a team, or however many points you’re going to lose by, it just fuels us as a team,” LB Dee Winters said.

New WVU Tech president excited to return home to West Virginia



BECKLEY, W.Va. — The new president of West Virginia University Institute of Technology says he’s preparing to move from Georgia back home to the Mountain State.

T. Ramon Stuart, a native of Welch, will begin his new role on Jan. 1, 2023.

Stuart most recently served as the president of Clayton State University in Morrow, Ga.

“We’re so excited to come back home. We’re starting to look at different places already. We’re going to make the transition quick because we believe in being part of the community because the university is the community,” he said.

Prior to his role at Clayton State, he served as the provost and vice president of academic affairs at Fort Valley State University in Fort Valley, Ga.

Before moving to Georgia, Stuart served in the provost’s office at West Virginia State University. He worked as an associate provost and associate vice president for academic affairs. He also served as a faculty member teaching undergraduate and graduate courses at WVSU, West Virginia State Community and Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Stuart said he’s excited to be part of the team at WVU Tech.

“You can tell that people that work here at West Virginia Tech believe in the institution, they believe in what they do and they understand who they’re doing it for,” he said.

While Stuart has a lot of knowledge and experience in student success and support, academics, fundraising, community collaboration and overall institutional growth, he said he wants to hear from the WVU Tech community to help move the campus forward.

Senator Wyden to investigate whether domain registrar Neustar sold user data to the US government



If you’re tired of censorship, cancel culture, and the erosion of privacy and civil liberties subscribe to Reclaim The Net.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) has called on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate whether domain name registry Neustar violated the privacy of millions of Americans “when it sold records of where they went online to the federal government.”

Wyden’s letter to the FTC states that in 2016, the Department of Defense funded a research team at Georgia Tech to purchase Neustar’s data. The senator obtained communications between the researchers and “both the FBI and the Department of Justice, indicating that government officials asked the researchers to run specific queries and that the researchers wrote affidavits and reports for the government describing their findings.”

We obtained a copy of the letter for you here.

Additionally, Wyden cited a statement by the Department of Justice, in an unrelated court case, which he says alleges that Neustar executive Rodney Jeff, “who led the company’s efforts to sell data to Georgia Tech, was also involved in the sale of DNS data directly to the U.S. government.”

The court documents state: “Rodney Joffe and certain companies with which he was affiliated, including officers and employees of those companies, have provided assistance to and received payment from multiple agencies of the United States government. This has included assistance to the United States intelligence community and law enforcement agencies on cyber security matters.
