Wiz Khalifa Brushed Off SpaceGhostPurrp Beef For 'T.A.P.' Collaboration
Mtv News- RAP FIX - almost 5 years
By Rob Markman The beat on "T.A.P.,"  from Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Allderdice mixtape was courtesy of A$AP Rocky producer SpaceGhostPurrp, but fans may not know that Purrp was once a Taylor Gang detractor. Luckily, the two artists were able to sidestep any issues to collaborate on a great track. For those unfamiliar with Purrp's catalog, in 2011 he released a song called"F--- Taylor Gang," on which he rapped, "This ain't no Wiz, so f--- a Khalifa." The song didn't hit Wiz's radar at first, but the Purrp-produced A$AP Rocky track "Pretty Flacko" did. "I love that beat. I'm like, 'Man, that beat is hard as hell,' " Wiz said when he appeared on last week's "RapFix Live." After hearing "Pretty Flacko," which dropped on New Year's Day, the Taylor Gang captain immediately took to Twitter to express his appreciation for SpaceGhost's work. Shortly after, the emerging producer hit Wiz back suggesting that they record a song together, and of course Khalifa agreed. "Then somebody was like, ' ...

Mama Drama: Attention Anxiety – Is it ADHD?
Denver Post - almost 5 years
Dear Mama Drama: (photo credit) My seven-year-old daughter is struggling in school. Her teachers say she daydreams and is off in her own world so she doesn’t get her work done. At home she also needs lots of reminders and support to get things done. Someone suggested that she may have attention deficit disorder, but I’m not sure what that means. I’ve seen kids who are very hyper and have trouble sitting still, but this doesn’t fit my daughter. While she needs help getting ready for school and keeping track of her things, she can also sit and draw or read for hours. Other people have suggested she might need medication, which seems really scary to me. Can you give me some insight and ideas for how to support her? ~Anxious Mama Dear Anxious: Attention concerns can be related to a variety of different issues, such as health problems, development, sensory processing needs, or neurological needs related to brain function. In order to help your daughter be successful in school ...

    More Details Hide Details Taylor's other work is The United States and the Spanish Civil War, 1936–1939, with the introduction by the diplomatic historian Claude G. Bowers. Taylor also read the initial manuscript for Professor John D. Winters' The Civil War in Louisiana (1963). Taylor served on numerous state and national boards and commissions.

Moreland (Class of 1983) said of Taylor's Tech Presidency: "…For 25 years, Dr. Taylor led Louisiana Tech on what is broadly known as the most crucially transformational years in Tech's history. It would be impossible to recall almost any aspect of Tech's history without the presence of Dr. Taylor progressively spearheading efforts large and small, from a simple name change to a skyscraper. His efforts made Louisiana Tech a household name throughout the nation and in many parts of the world. He cleverly grew the athletic programs into national prominence to blaze an early path for women in sports, long before it was widely accepted, and for numerous other All-American athletes who became his anointed ambassadors for Tech, and like a great branching tree that he painstakingly cultivated, they helped him put Louisiana Tech on the map.
  • 1987

Taylor was succeeded as the president by his vice-president, Daniel Reneau. On Taylor's death in Ruston at the age of eighty-seven, Reneau described his predecessor as "a great leader and a great president. I was privileged to serve seven years under him as vice president. A senior statesman and point guard in the Tech family has fallen, and we will miss him greatly." Taylor's services were held on May 18, 2011 at the First Baptist Church in downtown Ruston. Interment followed at Greenwood Cemetery. Taylor was eulogized by Sidney "Sid" Moreland, IV, former Louisiana Tech Student Body President, speaking "for all the students who were fortunate enough to pursue their education under the leadership of Jay Taylor…He epitomized the grace, humility, vision, and the intellectual depth that only a great university deserves. He made us all believe in that greatness and the gift of his tireless work lives on in all of us who were served by him, and blessed that he was ours…"
