    State officials say the number of men pursuing public college degrees must increase to catch up with their female counterparts as part of a statewide effort to expand the number of Texans who graduate.

    Officials with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board tell the Austin American-Statesman that lower enrollment figures among men impede efforts to have 550,000 young adults earn a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2030.

    The board reports that some 62,200 men received degrees from public schools in 2016 compared to 82,700 women.

    The gender divide is nothing new on public campuses in Texas. The board says women have comprised at least 56 percent of the population since 2000.

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.
