This Washington Football fan created the ultimate design for the name ‘Scouts’

One Washington Football fan took the hypothetical designs to the next level in his complete rebranding of the team under the name ‘Washington Scouts.’

Michigan-based graphic designer Zack Rueger proposed Scouts to replace Washington’s previous mascot in hopes of honoring Native Americans. In describing his inspiration, he wrote, “Scouts celebrates the proud tradition of Native American culture and the inclusion of scouts into the military.”

He went on to reference the impacts Native Americans had on the military such as the 29 Native American soldiers who were awarded the Medal of Honor or the Alamo Scouts during World War II who ran 108 missions without losing a single person. Rather than removing the team’s previous connection to Native American culture, Rueger believed Washington could honor them in its new name.

In addition to coining a name, he created a plethora of logos, jerseys and branded designs that the team could

Looking for advice on drafting a winning application to Harvard or another elite school? Look no further. hbs.edu

May 30th, 2018 was Decision Day — the day when I would know my fate.

Two weeks earlier, I had interviewed for Harvard Business School via its 2+2 deferred admissions program. Now, as a friend and I boarded a flight from Paris to London, I checked my phone for news of a decision.

It was 5:40 p.m. local time. Decisions were scheduled to be released at noon in Boston, which meant 6 p.m. where I was located. With no news as I boarded the plane, and with no Wi-Fi on the aircraft, I had to wait until I landed to either celebrate or be met with disappointment.

No matter the outcome, I knew that I would eventually end up at Harvard Business School. If I got the unfortunate news

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s latest weapon against COVID-19? Art.

On Wednesday, Garcetti announced a new initiative called the L.A. Mask Print Project, in which L.A. County artists can submit designs for posters bearing the public health message of the moment: Wear a mask. Posters chosen for the city’s coronavirus website can be downloaded for free, and Garcetti is encouraging local businesses and residents to display them.

“Wearing a mask is critical to helping us stop the spread of this virus, safely reopen our city and save lives,” Garcetti said in an email to The Times. “And we need to use every tool at our disposal to deliver this message across Los Angeles, throughout our country and around the world.”
