The way people buy and sell homes with a real estate agent could soon change for buyers, sellers, and agents. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) agreed Friday to pay a lawsuit settlement of $418 million to home sellers across the country. So, what could that mean for all parties involved? Coastal Carolina University Economics Professor Robert Salvino said the biggest motivation for this shift is that people aren't comfortable with the commission, and as home prices have increased because of inflation, so have commission percentages.

Emma Romito has never been in a sucking pluff mud grip or hammered apart oyster clusters on the public shellfish beds in Murrells Inlet. She doesn’t track the tides, know it’s important to rinse mud from boots and buckets before it dries harder than cement or get a homecoming feeling when she inhales the salty marsh. There aren’t coastal oyster beds in Cincinnati, Ohio. But she spent a day of her spring break with her sister and mother shoving oyster shells in a wire box they’d built with other volunteers gathered in the back parking lot of the Coastal Carolina University Science Center.

TikTok is facing a potential ban in the U.S. if the Senate takes up and passes a House bill that passed with broad bipartisan support and a pledge from the president to sign it as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle warn about the threats it poses to national security. “It is the access to the data, and the data we're talking about is your personal data. So if, if China so wanted, they could access your data and then do an influence campaign against you,” said Mark Chandler, a professor of practice in Coastal Carolina University’s department of intelligence and security studies and a former senior Defense Department executive.

It all started during the 2011 college football season when the Kappa Sigma fraternity at Coastal Carolina University hatched a plan: they’d get a live rooster mascot to show off at their tailgate. The Japanese Shamo they found for sale was just right—a fighting rooster like the Chanticleer, complete with feathers the same shade of teal as the school’s colors. But caring full time for a chicken, it turns out, isn’t exactly what frats do best. Enter Melissa Stalvey. Her husband’s family had been raising chickens in Myrtle Beach for a generation, and although she’d grown up in Indiana as a Notre Dame fan, she’d come to “bleed teal” in support of her husband’s alma mater. An arrangement was made whereby she would keep Maddox (named after the CCU English professor who picked the school’s mascot in the 1960s), allowing the Kappa Sigs to pick him up on game days.
