Why did John McCain have a hard time drawing crowds at his campaign rallies…???

while Obama had no trouble filling sports venues during his rallies?? You’d think the republicans would also be able to fill sports venues with ease……like the Louisiana Superdome right after Hurricane Katrina
Palin drew massive crowds as well, were they at work during Saracuda’s rallies????

Didn’t you ask this back in October?
It seems like it’s just a big basketball game to you libs.

Can you drive a vespa on the interstate in louisiana?

I’d like to get one because they’re much cheaper than a car, and great on gas, and I only travel within about 30-40 miles from where I live, But that’s using the interstate, so…?

If you are talking of real actual Vespa your can use 50cc scooters not use on Interstate. The 150cc Vespa scooters can use Interstate *legally* but can only do about 59mph and is not safely on the Interstate.

The Vespa 300cc scooters are 80mph on the Interstate.

Creole Common Routes; St.Domingue (Haiti) – Louisiana Part 2

From the pots of red beans and rice bubbling in French Quarter restaurants to the amulet bags for sale in neighborhood botanicas, Haitian influence is seen, heard and tasted across this city. French colonists from Saint-Domingue — later renamed Haiti — had traveled to New Orleans since the early 1700s. That connection flourished in 1809 and 1810, when 10,000 refugees arrived in New Orleans from Saint-Domingue. Those numbers were later strengthen with another migration wave of 15,000 in the 1820s. The refugees were a combination of French colonists, their slaves and free people of color who had fled the slave uprisings.The refugees doubled the city’s population and infused New Orleans with Franco-Caribbean traditions, including theater companies, elaborate dances and black political activists. Also, as Saint-Domingue’s lucrative sugarcane fields burned during the revolution there, New Orleans’ sugar industry soared. A lot of the things about New Orleans we view as unique came from those Haitian refugees. New Orleans is the most Haitian city in America, much more than Miami or New York. Essentially all of the surviving whites (along with some of the gens de couleur) became refugees. Approximately 10,000 French refugees came to the Gulf Coast larger than the population of New Orleans and Mobile at the time (8,000 and 810 respectively). These Saint-Dominguens made a significant contribution to the Gulf Coasts creole culture. Saint-Dominguens included John James Audubon, Louis Moreau Gottschalks family, and (likely) Marie Laveau and Jean Laffitte. Black refugees to Louisiana brought with them elements of African and Haitian culture in the form of voodoo/hoodoo practices, shotgun house architecture, and the language, oral traditions, and dance steps of Mardi Gras Indian rites.

High School’s Copyright?

I’m starting a prep sports website, that includes scores, records, etc for nearly every team in Louisiana high school sports. I have a couple of questions about aspects of my site concerning copyright infringement.

1. I have tons of video of high school games that I’ve personally filmed. I would like to offer copies for sale. Do I have the right to sell the footage because I filmed it. Or does the school in the films or the LHSAA have a say so?

2. I would like to create an online store that sells high school sports apparel. I’ve talked to a couple of local high schools and they said they don’t believe that they own the copyright. There are also a number of mom and pop shops around my area that create their own items without permission, so I’m wondering if this is legal.

3. Lastly, I’ve been gathering scores from articles I’ve found on NEWSBANK, which is a free site that has back articles from Louisiana newspapers. Is it legal for me to copy game summaries from the papers to put on my site under the corresponding games, I would cite the source of course.

Thanks for your help, hope to hear back from you soon.

1. You may or may not be able to. It’s impossible to say without additional facts.

2. The high school may have copyright rights to the design of the logo, as well as trademark rights to the use of the logo as a source of goods or services. Again, it’s impossible to say without additional facts.

3. Generally speaking, it is copyright infringement to use another’s copyrighted work without permission. Copying game summaries would constitute copyright infringement in most cases.

Citation to the source is absolutely irrelevant as far as copyright infringement is concerned. If you make a video with your hard work, someone cannot simply sell your video by citing you as the author. That would be unfair, right?

Needless to say, you really should consult an attorney. No stranger here can give you any accurate, substantive advice based on limited facts.
