Austin Peay State University’s new Spanish Class tackles Vampires and Zombies

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The last few years have been rough for Spain. The unemployment rate is close to 30 percent, which has led to daily protests and civil unrest in that European nation. For some scholars, this turmoil helps explain the sudden popularity of vampire and zombie literature in that country.

“Spain is in shambles,” Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo, Austin Peay State University associate professor of Spanish, said. “From 2008, the world crisis has hit them hard. When you read a novel from Spain about a zombie apocalypse, it makes you feel like this is happening. You feel the same destruction of society in every aspect.”

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of April 3rd, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The economic data reports were mixed and mostly ignored by the financial markets. Real GDP rose at a 2.6% annual rate in the 3rd estimate for 4Q13 (vs. +2.4% in the second estimate and +3.2% in the advance estimate).

Most of the story remained that same. Government subtracted a full percentage point from overall growth, but that was offset by a narrower trade deficit (which added a percentage point).
