    Caitlin Hilton/The Cougar With summer ending and the school year beginning again, many students are starting the academic year with a summer love on their arm or a potential love interest close by. On the other hand, there is probably a good number of women who spend a fair amount of the summer waiting for a special someone to ask them out — myself being one of them. Vicki Larson, co-author of “The New I Do” and writer for the OMGChronicles, was asked at a teen dating seminar whether it was okay for a girl to ask a guy out.

    It’s official! You, recent graduate you, are taking the next step in your life by starting your freshman year of college. Congratulations! As with any major change in life, you’re probably going to go through several stages of *feels* when you head off to college for the first time. When it came to my experience, I distinctly remember 5 stages I went through during my freshman year and, let me tell you, were they a roller coaster of emotions. So, like all things to describe how I feel, I’m going to go through said stages…as explained by Harry Potter. Don’t fight,…

    Heading to college after your last summer home can be a relatively stressful time. From figuring out what textbooks are needed, to making sure there are enough supplies to get through the semester and even to sorting through which clothes to leave home and which to bring, packing for freshman year isn’t easy. Going into my senior year, I’ve developed a system that has helped improve the time needed to pack and the amount of stress endured during the last few days home–not to mention saving a ton of space in my car!

    There are many new experiences that come with beginning college. Some that are life changing, others, not so much. This first semester taught me a lot about myself, what I wanted out of my life, and many other lessons. Stand Up Going to college means you have to be an adult *insert fetal position and scream here*. Becoming an adult is probably the scariest thing. You feel as if your childhood is out the window and that you are all by yourself. At first I felt like that, but then I realized I was the furthest thing from it. I came to college with a really good friend who I would consider one…

    20 Aug 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Next month, a Simpsons mural will be installed in downtown Springfield, giving the town a chance to finally claim the longest-running scripted television series as its own. The city of Springfield has spent years working with 20th Century Fox pitching idea after idea with little success, according to Niel Laudati, the city’s community relations manager. “We went through several ideas: fan festivals, parades, pop-up stores in downtown Springfield, and then this mural idea was presented to them and they liked it,” said Laudati.

    With Labor Day just around the corner, now is the perfect time to plan the perfect outfit for whatever you might be doing that day. Whether it is a picnic, beach day or a barbeque, make sure you dress to impress. Do: -Wear white clothing or accessories. After all, it is technically the last time it’s acceptable to wear this color. Rules are rules! -Prepare yourself for a sad farewell to summer with a bright floral or patterned print. -Throw on your favorite pair of sunnies.

    Gov. Rick Perry was booked on felony charges of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant at the Travis County Justice Complex on Tuesday. The charges are related to Perry’s attempts to force the resignation of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg after her April 2013 arrest for drunken driving. Perry was indicted by a Travis County grand jury on the two felony charges. “I’m going to enter this courthouse with my head held high, knowing the actions I took were not only lawful and legal, but right,” Perry said outside the complex Tuesday…

    Last year, HackCollege organized its first ever Freshman Week. While students were preparing to head to college for the time or just getting settled in, we decided it was fitting to dedicate an entire week to articles that focused on helping freshmen transition smoothly into college life. This year, we’ll work on tackling even more problems incoming freshmen face in their first semester of college. Whether that be what to bring to school, general anxiety, socializing, being independent, the goal is to make freshman year less scary and more exciting. In the meantime, take a look at some…

    “You make your own luck” is a quote you’ve probably heard before. The meaning, however, is lost without more context. After all, if you make your own luck, doesn’t that make it the opposite of luck? Well, according to psychologist Richard Wiseman, author of The Luck Factor, a person’s luck is often manufactured. In his research, he discovered that lucky people tend to be more open, allowing them to better recognize opportunities that are often overlooked by others (unlucky people). Let’s explore a few ways you can work to rein in your good luck so you can…

This year, I want to reopen that topic and let you know how to build credit responsibly while still avoiding the pitfalls that lead to early debt and financial hardships. Credit Follows You Everywhere The most important thing to know about credit is that it follows you everywhere. Want to rent an apartment? Credit check. Buy an iPhone with a service contract? Credit check. Applying for a job? Some employers may run a credit check. The point is,…

    Heading off for a semester (or year) abroad? By most accounts, you can plan on having a life-changing experience of one kind or another. You’ve signed up to something you can talk about for the rest of your life: the time you lived and studied in another country and culture, living it up and learning all kinds of new things. Of course, each person’s experience abroad is radically different depending on their chosen destination, their previous travel experiences, and the kind of studies they’ll be undertaking. Regardless of what and where you’re studying, however, there are some useful…

    Has a writer ever inspired as many adaptations and references as William Shakespeare? In the four hundred years since his death, his work has patterned much of the fabric of world literature and seen countless permutations on stage and screen. Less discussed are the visual representations of Shakespeare in fine art and illustration, but they are multitude. In one small sampling, Richard Altick notes in his extensive study Paintings from Books, that “pictures from Shakespeare accounted for about one fifth—some 2,300—of the total number of literary paintings recorded between 1760 and…

    Before Theodor Seuss Geisel AKA Dr. Seuss convinced generations of children that a wocket might just be in their pocket, he was the chief editorial cartoonist for the New York newspaper PM from 1940 to 1948. During his tenure he cranked out some 400 cartoons that, among other things, praised FDR’s policies, chided isolationists like Charles Lindbergh and supported civil rights for blacks and Jews. He also staunchly supported America’s war effort. To that end, Dr. Seuss drew many cartoons that, to today’s eyes, are breathtakingly racist. Check out the cartoon above. It shows an…

    Yesterday we featured George Orwell’s review of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf — not just an isolated newspaper piece, or one of a scattered few, in a life otherwise spent churning out important novels like Animal Farm and 1984, but a particularly perceptive book review among the many in his prolific journalistic career. (He even wrote “Confessions of a Book Reviewer,” the definitive article on that practice.) Today we have another of Orwell’s pieces taking on a well-known 20th-century Continental figure: this time, the French existentialist philosopher…

John Travolta appeared in the 1976 horror film, and Stephen King wrote the book behind it. So Grohl name checks them both. Where Jack Black fits into the picture, I’m not exactly sure.

    A Weekly Plan Case Study Last week I wrote a post about my habit of planning out my whole week in advance. I provided some example plans from my own life, but many of you were interested in how this technique applies to other types of work. Fortunately, I recently received the following note from a lawyer whom I’ll call John: I tried writing out my week last week for the first time using [a method from your blog post]. When I reviewed my week on Friday afternoon, I was surprised at how much more I accomplished compared to my usual method of scheduling time to complete tasks in Outlook.

    Einstein’s Strain Earlier today, I was browsing Maria Popova’s Brain Pickings blog and stumbled across a letter that Albert Einstein wrote to his son Hans Albert in the fall of 1915. This date, of course, is important in the lifetime of Albert Einstein, as this was right after he finished writing one of the masterpieces of modern science: his general theory of relativity. (To paraphrase my astronomy teacher at Dartmouth: “most scientific breakthroughs are expected, many different people are closing in on the same idea, but general relativity, this came out of nowhere, it was…

    A Planning Habit On Monday mornings I plan the upcoming work week. I capture this plan in an e-mail and send it to myself so that I will be sure to see it and have access to it daily. (See the snapshot above of some recent plans in my inbox.) This planning can take a long time; almost always longer than an hour. But the return on investment is phenomenal. To visualize your whole week at once allows you to spread out, batch, and prioritize work in a manner that significantly increases what you accomplish and goes a long way toward eliminating work pile-ups and late nights (the latter being…

  • Should You Work During College?

    Todd Johnson
    14 Aug 2014 | 3:00 am
    I was brought up to believe that a little hard work never hurt anyone. When I was in college, I worked in the college library. When my children turned 16 they knew that they would need to get a job. Sometimes working is about making money but sometimes it is also about learning the skills required to hold a job. And once you finish college, that will be an important skill to have. I have always told students that they should consider working a job in college, even if they don’t need the money. There have been studies in the past that have showed that students that have a job during…
  • Why My Students Don’t Use Essay Prompts for the Common Application

    Todd Johnson
    5 Aug 2014 | 3:00 am
    Last week I told you what the common app personal statement prompts were for 2014-15. For many of you, this meant you could now start working on your personal statement. But let me tell you a secret. I start my students working on the common app personal statement in June before senior year. And I don’t give them the prompts. Not then. Not ever. Why? I mean, how do you write an essay if you don’t even know what the essay prompt is? The common app personal statement essay is used by colleges to see how well you write and to hopefully, learn a little bit more about who you are. As…

    Todd Johnson

    The common application for 2014-2015 comes out tomorrow and many students have been waiting to write their personal statement. Wait no longer, here are the essay prompts for the common application personal statement: Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story. Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure.  How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn? Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea.  What…
  • I Don’t Care About your A+ Grade

    Todd Johnson
    24 Jul 2014 | 3:00 am
    I don’t care that you got an A+ grade in one of your classes. Don’t misunderstand me. I think it great that you did really well in one of your classes. You should be proud of yourself. But in the world of college admissions, there is no such thing as an A+. The highest grade available on a 4.0 scale is an A. Not an A+. Why? Because an A grade says you did as well as you possibly could. You can’t do any better.  That is why the vast majority of high schools in this country do not give any grade higher than an A. Sure, colleges will see that your transcript says that you…
  • Average GPA’s for Admissions to California Colleges

    Todd Johnson
    22 Jul 2014 | 3:00 am
    Last week I mentioned that the required GPA for the UC San Diego Medical Scholars Program was a 4.0 or higher. If you are interested in any public college in California you will note that the average accepted GPA is very high. Most of the UC’s have an average accepted GPA over 4.0. But what if the highest GPA in your class is a 3.97 or something below a 4.0. Does that person not stand of chance of getting into a California public college? No, that is not at all what it means. If you missed my recent post about the difference between weighted and unweighted grades, go read it now. In…

And then it adds and checks two more boxes for fun and value. In 3-door or 5-door liftback models, the 2015 Yaris makes every day driving less every day. The 2015 Yaris, like the previous-generations, comes in 3-door and 5-door liftback configurations, but the style is all-new.

    Mark Frost
    13 Aug 2014 | 8:54 am
    “You make your own luck” is a quote you’ve probably heard before. The meaning, however, is lost without more context. After all, if you make your own luck, doesn’t that make it the opposite of luck? Well, according to psychologist Richard Wiseman, author of The Luck Factor, a person’s luck is often manufactured. In his research, he discovered that lucky people tend to be more open, allowing them to better recognize opportunities that are often overlooked by others (unlucky people). Let’s explore a few ways you can work to rein in your good luck so you can…

You’ve signed up to something you can talk about for the rest of your life: the time you lived and studied in another country and culture, living it up and learning all kinds of new things. Of course, each person’s experience abroad is radically different depending on their chosen destination, their previous travel experiences, and the kind of studies they’ll be undertaking.

Mark broke any illusions Tomas had about college, making sure he didn’t procrastinate on the application process, coaching him on writing successful essays, and expanding his list of possible schools outside of the Northeast, where Tomas assumed he was destined.

He advises students to scope out studying spaces when touring a school, and shows some of the offerings at Seattle University.

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad!

  • New: RSS Image Enclosures Now Visible

    Phil Hollows
    13 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

If you want to buy a car while in college, you’ll need to know a few things to get a good deal on a reliable vehicle.

    Yo, I’m about the blow your mind here. Ok… think about the amount of money you have right now.

    Remember the Mega Maid from Spaceballs?  You know, that star-cruising, colossal, maid-shaped ship with a gargantuan vacuum bent on stealing all the oxygen from an entire planet?

    Sometime in the midst of my 8th year of life on this earth, my constant “polite” nudges and hints must have cracked something in my mother’s brain – for she finally bought me my very first copy of Pokémon Blue. That morning, sitting on a lawn chair in my driveway and “keeping an eye on” my parents’ garage sale, I was presented with the momentous choice many of us have had to make: This was 1999; the only computer in the house ran Windows 95 and was there mainly so my dad could play Descent, which scared the crap out of my brother and me.

    Last week saw a gathering of 35 students in our Online MSc programmes with the University of Salford. They came from all over the world (literally, with 29 nationalities present) for a full residential week. A mandatory event during the course of otherwise fully online  master programmes, this residency has undoubtedly created new bonds between participants, whichever their programme of study was.

      European Banks preparing for the stress tests The latest comments of Ms Nouy, the Single Supervisory Mechanism Chair, picture a new scenario for European banks. The new pan-European regulator certainly wants to establish an high degree of credibility and is sending a clear message to the banks: act now or fail. Overall the new stress tests will strengthen the banking sector that faces several challenges. One of these challenges is the intimate link between banks and sovereign bonds that the SSM is trying to break.  Several European banks still rely on the profitable carry…

    Remember last year, when everything — all the events, activities and fun — was planned for you? Unless your institution has a dedicated sophomore program (most don’t!), you may find that when you get back on campus you feel a bit lost — or maybe even forgotten! There will still be tons of things going on, but you may not be as excited about them since you’ve “been there and done that.” Graduation is still a few years away, so what are you supposed to do for now? Sophomore year is often the time when students start to ask some of the big questions:…
  • 3 Essential Pieces of Advice for First-Generation College Students

    Julie Tucker
    30 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Recently, I had an opportunity to sit down with first-generation college students (“first-gens”) and discuss their transition to college. As a first-generation college student myself, these were discussions I related to, as the students expressed emotions and shared stories that I, too, had felt and experienced during college. Over the course of these discussions, three pieces of advice for first-gens emerged: 1. Ask For Help and Do It Early In talking to first-gens and even thinking about my own experience as a first-gen, many of us think we shouldn’t ask for help. We think…

So I declared that I would be the FIRST to complete college in my family, despite the vast opposing voices I encountered along the way. The journey to college was not easy. I navigated the FAFSA…

    A Choice My Parents Didn’t Have When I was growing up, my parents said two things to me that I will never forget: “America is a land of opportunity,” and “Education is the key to success.” My parents would have loved to have gone to college, but they did not get the opportunity to go because it was beyond their reach financially. Regardless of our circumstances, my parents knew the value of education, and that is why they sacrificed their own time, comfort, happiness and dreams to make sure that my future held brighter prospects and more security than their own.

This first semester taught me a lot about myself, what I wanted out of my life, and many other lessons.

    As much as we would like to believe that Fascism was defeated in the 40’s, it is still alive. It goes beyond Greece’s Golden Dawn, it goes past Russian Neo-Nazi’s, and it goes even further than France’s National Front. Fascist principals have pervaded every nation it has ever come in contact with. It has changed the way we view government, citizenship, and the definition of ‘Nation’. In my last two articles I’ve outlined the history and the philosophical principals of Fascism. Now let’s expand this to talk about how it impacts us in America. The fact is that many of the core…

You hardly need money to do them, and by extension, you hardly have to do any productive work to receive them. All you need is $10 and an empty room, then take a small tablet, inhale a few fumes, or eat a couple grams; you’re off to space. But society doesn’t benefit from this transaction. You don’t buy any products or participate in the social world in any way. Societies hate that. Or, to put it more succinctly, collections of people hate this sort of behavior. Why? To…
