    Police brutality stories in American society are no longer a rare occurrence; many have become so desensitized to these reports that it barely stirs a reaction out of them any longer. And if these stories still do get a reaction, it is usually distrust and outrage for the people who serve and protect. This is the problem then: some police are abusing the power that was given to them in confidence of our protection, and more people are beginning to distrust police indiscriminately because of these unjust actions. This past Sunday, a 25-year-old Baltimore citizen named Freddie Gray died in a…

    Note taking: love it or hate it, it’s one of the easiest and most common ways of keeping up with lecture material.  Despite its ubiquity, it seems that every student—and even every class—needs a slightly different approach for maximum study usage. If your notes seem to be slipping toward the end of the school year or you’d like to try out something different, ask yourself these questions. How Do You Take Notes? Even in 2015, many students prefer to take notes by hand.  Studies have shown that it helps cement information in your long-term memory, and many students appreciate the lack…

    Meet the president Michael Schill is new to the University of Oregon, but he may look familiar to some students. Before his official debut press conference on April 14 with cameras, lights and media, UO’s newest president took a much more incognito tour of campus. Before he was even named a finalist for the position, Schill took an informal trip to Eugene and spent some time walking through the campus and talking with some of the students. This impressed the only student to interview the final four presidential candidates. “When I asked him a question about students, he already had a good…

    For 45 minutes, an infant is swaddled and snoozed into a cozy fMRI machine. That’s all it takes for researchers at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds to observe how structures inside the child’s brain communicate with each other. Nicole Schmidt, a research program manager at the Waisman Center, is among the researchers behind the Baby Brain and Behavior Project. “It’s so neat because the babies are just such quiet little bundles, but there’s so much going on developmentally,” Schmidt said.

  • You Should Be Using: handyLock to Automatically Lock Your Mac While You’re Away

    14 Apr 2015 | 6:32 am
    Having your own Mac to use around campus is awesome, but let’s be honest–you probably don’t pack it up and tote it with you on every bathroom break. When you walk away from your computer it’s good to have someone watch it, but even so it’s better to have it locked until you get back. Now you can use handyLock to provide you extra security and keep all of your information, files, and work safe and secure until you get back to your computer. You use handyLock by pairing it with a Bluetooth device (like your iPhone). When you get out of range the computer will know and lock…

  • 5 Great Alternatives to Joining the Peace Corps

    10 Apr 2015 | 2:47 pm
    Before I elected to move to South Korea, I was weighing my options. I knew I wanted to travel, but I wasn’t certain for how long.  I felt it was in my best interest to evaluate every possibility. One of those options I considered, but ultimately looked past, was the Peace Corps. Now, don’t get me wrong, serving in the Peace Corps is honorable. However, a two-year commitment is huge. I read several articles and blogs talking about how difficult it can be to work in such a capacity while unpaid, and how the chance of being majorly sick, at least once, is high. People are often relying on…

  • Animated Philosophers Presents a Rocking Introduction to Socrates, the Father of Greek Philosophy

    Josh Jones

    //www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk0oSfivOyc Would there be such a thing as philosophy had there been no such person—or literary character, at least—as Socrates? Surely people the world over have always asked questions about the nature of reality, and come up with all sorts of speculative answers. But the particular form of inquiry known as the Socratic method—a blanket presumption of ignorance—would not have become the dominant force in Western intellectual history without its namesake. And that is, of course, not all. In the work of Socrates’ highly imaginative student, interpreter, and…
  • Visit The Online Library of Babel: New Web Site Turns Borges’ “Library of Babel” Into a Virtual Reality

    Colin Marshall
    27 Apr 2015 | 4:55 am
    Jorge Luis Borges specialized in envisioning the unenvisionable: a map the same size as the land it depicts, an event whose possible outcomes all occur simultaneously, a single point in space containing all other points in space, a vast library containing all possible books. That last, the setting, subject, and title of his short story “The Library of Babel,” has given readers much to think about since its first publication in 1941, and in recent decades has done more than its part to bolster Borges’ posthumous reputation as a seer of our unprecedentedly rich but often…

As a promotional posting, WQXR also created this mashup of 46 recordings in 3 minutes, showing the varying approaches to Stravinsky’s score, and the wildly different dynamics of interpretation.

  • A Harrowing Test Drive of Buckminster Fuller’s 1933 Dymaxion Car: Art That’s Scary to Ride

Like Fuller’s Dymaxion house, the three-wheel Dymaxion car could be disassembled and re-assembled with ease. You can see vintage videos of both here. The concept car didn’t get much beyond the concept stage. Only three original versions were built, one of which rolled over at the 1933 World’s Fair,…

    The Four Hour Consensus In 2007, Tim Ferriss published a hit book that suggested “work,” in the traditional money-making sense of the term, could and should be reduced to as little as four hours per week — freeing time for more fulfilling pursuits. Seventy-five years earlier, the British philosopher Bertrand Russell, in an essay titled In Praise of Idleness, suggested this same number of working hours as a worthy goal, explaining… In a world where no one is compelled to work more than four hours a day, every person possessed of scientific curiosity will be able to…

    The Watch to Watch A couple weeks ago, the New York Times reviewed the Apple Watch. A paragraph early in the article caught my attention: First there was a day to learn the device’s initially complex user interface. Then another to determine how it could best fit it into my life. And still one more to figure out exactly what Apple’s first major new product in five years is trying to do — and, crucially, what it isn’t. It’s worth taking a moment to recognize what’s strange here. If it takes three days to figure out why something might be useful to you, then you probably…

    Distracted in the Dugout Last week, the Washington Post featured a front page story about the declining number of kids who play organized baseball. There are various reasons for this decline, but the story emphasized the sport’s lack of action. Here’s an articulate 15-year old, as quoted in the article, explaining his reasons for quitting baseball: Baseball is a bunch of thinking, and I live a different lifestyle than baseball. In basketball and football, you live in the moment. You got to be quick. Everything I do, I do with urgency. This teenager is right. Baseball, undoubtedly,…
  • What Steve Jobs Meant When He Said “Follow Your Heart”

    Study Hacks
    5 Apr 2015 | 2:45 pm
    What Steve Said I opened my last book with Steve Jobs’s 2005 commencement address at Stanford University. Toward the end of the speech, I noted, Jobs said: And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Many people interpreted this suggestion simplistically, assuming that Jobs was telling them to follow their passion and everything would work out. I argued in my book that this interpretation conflicted with Jobs’s own story. During the period leading up to Apple’s…

    Bound Gaps Solved Last year, Yitang (Tom) Zhang published a paper in the Annals of Mathematics titled “Bounded Gaps Between Primes.” The abstract for the paper is simple enough for a non-mathematician to understand. It states that there are infinitely many pairs of consecutive prime numbers that are no more than 70,000,000 apart. Don’t let the simplicity of the claim fool you: people have being trying to prove something like this for over 150 years. At the time when Zhang submitted his result he held a “tenuous” temporary position in the mathematics department at…

  • Cracking the Code to Getting Into the Best Colleges

    Todd Johnson
    23 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    I recently read an article about a person who claimed that they had cracked the code to getting into the best colleges. And I laughed as I read the article. Why?  Because there is no secret code to crack. It is all about what each college wants. Every college wants good grades and strong test scores But the most selective colleges want more. They want interesting students. They want students with a passion or focus. And they have needs to fill. They need softball catchers and if that is you this year you have a leg up in admissions. But if they filled the catcher’s position last year…
  • Is the PSAT Really Important?

    Todd Johnson
    21 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    I work with a number of families that are very concerned about preparing for the PSAT. This year there is additional concern because the format has changed in anticipation of the new SAT going into effect in March 2016. The October 2015 PSAT will be using the format for the new SAT. But, the real question, regardless of format, is whether the PSAT is important to you? For most students, the answer is a clear NO. The results of the PSAT are not used in college admissions. Most selective colleges do not care if you are a National Merit Scholar or not.  What they care about is how did you do on…
  • Should Sophomores take the ACT, the Old SAT or the New SAT?

    Todd Johnson
    14 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    A year from now in March 2016, the SAT will change. The writing section is going away, penalties for wrong answers are going away and the topics covered by the SAT are changing. For more specific examples of the changes, take a look at the College Board’s description of the changes.  But, the real question for those of you who are sophomores right now is, should you take the ACT, the old SAT or the new SAT. You basically have three options. Option one would be to wait until next spring and take just the new SAT. The potential issue with that approach is that despite the information…

    The Rice/Baylor BS/MD program and the Baylor 2 BS/MD program, both with Baylor College of Medicine, are now requiring the MCAT for students matriculating to the program. They changed the policy late last year but a reader just noticed that I had failed to change the post I had done earlier about which programs did not require the MCAT. These two programs have now been taken off the list of non MCAT programs. Thanks, Linda.

    Note taking: love it or hate it, it’s one of the easiest and most common ways of keeping up with lecture material.  Despite its ubiquity, it seems that every student—and even every class—needs a slightly different approach for maximum study usage. If your notes seem to be slipping toward the end of the school year or you’d like to try out something different, ask yourself these questions. How Do You Take Notes? Even in 2015, many students prefer to take notes by hand.  Studies have shown that it helps cement information in your long-term memory, and many students appreciate the lack…

    Having your own Mac to use around campus is awesome, but let’s be honest–you probably don’t pack it up and tote it with you on every bathroom break. When you walk away from your computer it’s good to have someone watch it, but even so it’s better to have it locked until you get back. Now you can use handyLock to provide you extra security and keep all of your information, files, and work safe and secure until you get back to your computer. You use handyLock by pairing it with a Bluetooth device (like your iPhone). When you get out of range the computer will know and lock…

    Before I elected to move to South Korea, I was weighing my options. I knew I wanted to travel, but I wasn’t certain for how long.  I felt it was in my best interest to evaluate every possibility. One of those options I considered, but ultimately looked past, was the Peace Corps. Now, don’t get me wrong, serving in the Peace Corps is honorable. However, a two-year commitment is huge. I read several articles and blogs talking about how difficult it can be to work in such a capacity while unpaid, and how the chance of being majorly sick, at least once, is high.

    Since our goal here at Great College Advice is to educate, inform and guide, we are embarking on a series of blog posts to shine a light on the world of college athletic recruiting, which can be a murky and anxiety-ridden process for many students. Our work with student-athletes who aspire to play their sport at the varsity level in college has shown us that, while no two stories of athletic recruiting are the same, meaningful lessons can be learned from the experiences of others who have gone through it. So, we have asked students who have just recently completed their own recruiting journey…

When newly admitted students walk onto campus this month, they will be greeted by cookies to eat with milk in wine glasses, brightly colored…

Some interesting findings include the following: Wyoming has a lot of anthropology majors.  This must be due to the efforts of my college dorm mate, Sarah Strauss, who is on the faculty there. Florida is full of criminologists.  These folks must also be fans of Carl Hiassen. Alabama has a bunch of school counselors, despite the fact that most public schools have had to decrease the number of school counselors.  Maybe someone should tell the kids in Alabama?

    As I move into making more videos for Friends’ Central I’m concerned with what the effect will be. Following Wistia’s method, one of the most helpful web video production sites I’ve come across, engagement/retention can be seen as an analog for quality. There are different metrics to use when trying to reach different goals but I see no better way to measure quality (at least in the eyes of your viewers), than engagement. I’m happy to say then, that the 2015 Valentine’s Day video I produced (with some content from others at the school) was enjoyed by those…

    Summer is almost here, and as many soon-to-be grads have already realized: the job market may be better... but it isn't great. In fact, the number of job openings targeted to new graduates is down about 20 percent in 2015. However, the overall job market has increased by 20%... and many of the the full-time employment (FTE) positions available are the types of jobs college graduates covet such as non-retail sales, customer service and business support...

    Fresh out of college, most recent grads find themselves facing one heck of a conundrum: They can't get experience until they have experience. Perhaps rightfully so, no one wants to hire someone completely green. But this leaves the newcomers to the “real world” up the creek without the proverbial paddle. The answer? Internships.

    When it comes to moving at the end of a spring semester, whether it be out of a dorm, back home for the summer, or into a shared space with roommates for a few months, you can rest assured that it’s going to be one of the less enjoyable tasks you have to take on as the events of the semester draw to a temporary close. Luckily, there are a variety of ways to hit the ground running when it comes to moving as a student, many without even breaking the bank if you take the right approach. A critical factor in moving successfully on a tight budget will be to plan ahead as soon as you can—read…

    No two things go together better than game day and takeout from your favorite spot. Whether it’s pizza and wings, burgers and fries or foot-long subs and chips, the official start of March Madness means an inevitable spike in restaurant business that only the NCAA Basketball Championships can generate. In honor of March Madness, food takeout and delivery app GrubHub provided Huffington Post with a ranking of the hungriest colleges in the U.S., determined by comparing the average number of orders per day over the three weeks leading up to last year’s March Madness to the number of food…

    Thomas Frank

    Today we’re wrapping up my two-episode mini-series on my video creation process (here’s the first), and I’ll be walking you through how I actually edit my videos and get them up on YouTube. Editing starts with a couple of preliminary passes where I chop up the footage, sync the audio, and remove bad takes. After that, I’ll start the process of creating graphics, animations, screencasts, and other B-roll. Once editing’s done, it’s time to publish! This episode also goes a bit into some of the things I do to create shortcuts in this process, which makes…

    If you’ve got finals or other exams coming up, and they’re causing a buildup of anxiety – you’re not alone. Unless your test is fighting a bear. Then you’re alone and you should probably stop reading blogs and go practice your bear-headlock technique. For the rest of us, test anxiety is an incredibly common phenomenon that I believe stems from several fears. Here are a few key ones: The fear of the unknown The fear that you’re unprepared The fear that everything is riding on this exam These fears and others can be quelled in several ways, and in this…

  • The “Stuff That Works” Library: Your Brain’s Unique Combo of Learning Sources

    Thomas Frank

    Bruce Lee once said, “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” I see this as a solid answer to an important question: How should you fill your brain? Or, more specifically, who should you trust to teach you things? What makes a learning source worthy of your attention? And, how much of what that source communicates should you incorporate into your own life? These questions can be thought of within the context of an idea I had a while ago, which I like to call the “Stuff that Works” library. Your brain, among the sea of all…

That’s what Chris Bailey did – with productivity as his chosen topic, he took 365 days after graduating to dive into a project he called A Year of Productivity. For an entire year, he read and practiced all he could around productivity, habit-building, mindfulness, time management, focus and concentration, and more. He also built a blog around the project in order to…

    14 Apr 2015 | 4:42 am
    How to Deal With a College Rejection Letter It’s bound to happen at least once, especially if you’re applying to six to 10 colleges: a rejection. But getting a rejection letter, even from your top choice school, doesn’t have to be the end of the world. So if you do get that dreaded rejection letter, don’t let it get the best of you. Instead, try this: Scream, cry and then regroup. Getting a rejection letter could make you a bit emotional, and that’s okay. Let it out, and then regroup. After all, it’s their loss.

    In December, Tyler Lessard predicted on MarketingProfs that 2015 would be the year of video marketing. This was reinforced in January on VentureBeat by Tod Sacerdoti who said that this would be video advertising’s breakout year. Both pointed to video’s power to tell a story, engage a viewer, and motivate an action. More recently, though, what has become apparent is that this is really the year of the Facebook video. In a report entitled, “The State of Video Advertising: Facebook’s Rise to Dominance,” Mixpo concluded that more marketers will use Facebook video for their ad campaigns…

    Taking out a student loan, whether it is from the federal government or through a private lender, is almost a given part of the college process. It seems like an easy source of money and, in most cases, you don’t have to worry about making payments until after graduation. But, when these loans are combined with revolving credit card debt that builds up during the college years, some graduates quickly find out how difficult it can be starting their post-college life with a large amount of debt.

One example has been the East Coast private jet company who has offered a 10 hour card at a discounted $43,000.   The point of a taking your child on a college tour is to determine if your child will excel academically, ‘like’ the people and be engaged in the community of that specific…

    Approximately 30 years ago, then Dean of the School of General Studies Ward Dennis classified GS students as “nontraditional.” Originally referring to “adult” education, the term has since become obsolete and, at times, even subversive—it represents a time when “adult education” was considered distinct from just education. Now that we’ve reached the point of graduation, we’ve grown tired of the “nontraditional” categorization, as it’s increasingly difficult to define “traditional” in the context of higher learning. The “entry delay” argument is immediately…

    I’d like to think that I was a feminist before I got to college, but I know that it isn’t true. Don’t get me wrong—I supported the equality of the sexes, condemned misogyny and unequal pay and the like—but I never used the word. I was never actively engaged, mentally or physically, in the achievement of a better world for women. I didn’t see that we don’t already live in that world in the first place. Naturally, things changed for me in college. I went from hanging out mostly with men to hanging out mostly with women. I met a girl who I have now been dating for more than two…

  • Course registration…or the Hunger Games?

    21 Apr 2015 | 10:30 pm
    In the beginning of April, I was trying to do work when I got an email saying the course offerings for fall 2015 were out. At that moment, my productivity went right down the drain. First, I’m shocked because it feels like this semester just started. It seems like I just had to go through the awkward introductions and yet it’s already almost coming to an end. Second, I had been waiting for weeks to see what was going to be offered, so I jumped right on. Registration this time is a little bittersweet for me. I’ll finally get to go early on the first day, guaranteeing that I’ll get…

Some did not go back to school simply because they couldn’t [...]

  • Your Network is Your Net Worth: Using Your Network to Succeed in College

    Joshua Rodriguez
    9 Apr 2015 | 10:18 am
    When I was growing up, my parents would often tell me that I needed to go to college to have an opportunity at a better life. That made sense to me. My parents didn’t graduate from high school and worked service jobs. College was my opportunity to help my family become financially stable and realize the American Dream. I was fortunate to get a full-tuition scholarship to Pomona College, one of the premier liberal arts colleges in the nation. Things changed once I got to college; I hit a wall. I had focused all of my time on getting into college and never really thought about how to…
  • Tailoring Your College Experience

    Leobardo Espinoza
    23 Mar 2015 | 8:26 am
    Before you even get to college, it is important to think about what kind of experience you’d like to have. As a college student, you will have the opportunity to tailor your experience to whatever you want it to be. College is like a buffet restaurant; everything you could possibly want is laid out in front of you for you to choose, but it’s up to you to decide what your meal will look like. Out of the millions of things to choose from, you’re only going to be able to do a fraction of them. This is why it is important to plan ahead about what you want your experience to look…
  • Preparing for College with AP: Why It Matters, and Why It’s Personal

    Steven Colón
    5 Mar 2015 | 12:45 pm
    I’m passionate about every part of the College Board’s Access to Opportunity work, but encouraging students who have shown the potential to be successful in challenging courses to take AP classes is especially personal and rewarding. Those students have proven they are ready and should be encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities they’ve earned through their hard work and grit. I took one AP course in high school — AP calculus — and it was easily one of the best classes I ever took. I took it because I liked math and knew I was good at it, but I…
  • Handling the Pressure of Others’ Expectations

    Shantae Edwards
    9 Feb 2015 | 9:05 am
    Pressure. A single word with a powerful meaning. As a first-generation college student, pressure was a big part of my life. In ninth grade, I felt completely alone. I looked around, and I saw many people from my community; however, few shared in my dreams for success. I didn’t allow this to discourage me, though; on the contrary, it inspired me to push forward and make things happen for myself. The struggle to resist this pressure is real. It creeps up on you whenever others deem you “exceptional” or impose an impossible array of expectations on you. It hurts because there…
  • Advice for Rural Students on Adjusting to College in Urban Areas

    MyKayla Hilgart
    29 Jan 2015 | 10:34 am
    I grew up in a small town. To give you some perspective – it is unincorporated, an hour-and-a-half drive away from Walmart in any direction and does not even have a stoplight. While it was a great, safe place to grow up, I always knew I wanted to go away for college, and eventually, even farther away for a career. I have always enjoyed traveling anywhere and everywhere, but my family much prefers to stay home in the solitude of Northern Wisconsin. Lucky for me, they are understanding and support me in all my endeavors. My mother is a bank teller, and my father is a machinist; however,…

  • Disappointed With Your First SAT Attempt? Tips for a better SAT score!

    Ok, so your first attempt wasn’t exactly the cakewalk you thought it would be. It’s not the end of the world. That’s why the test is offered several times a year. There is still time to improve (if there is at least one test date before your college application deadlines).  Most students take the test more than once, increasing their chances of the score they want. Each test you take is an opportunity to improve the next time around. Taking a test is like flexing a specific muscle. The more you do it, the better your results will become.

  • ISIS Will Thrive: Ideology on Display

    collectivistduck
    6 Apr 2015 | 8:56 pm
    To a secular westerner, ISIS is a conundrum. Why would fellow westerners leave their comfortable, sheltered life, to meet eventual death in a foreign land? Why would any sane woman ever choose to join a movement known for its brutality toward women, whereas in the western world (comparatively) they are left unmolested? To those who read this blog, my answer is unsurprising: ideology. The western world has become drunk with success. It assumes that liberalism is so all powerful that it can peacefully convince anyone of its righteousness. That no matter how old, how ‘backward’ your…

    In the western world, communism is the most popular competing ideology. No other ideology has had such a dramatic rise and fall from power. No other ideology has posed such a serious threat to the dominance of classical liberalism and capitalism. And even after communism’s official fall, its remnants continue to evolve and thrive. As of this writing there are only four nations whose governments are proclaimed followers of Marxist-Leninism (communism). They are China, Cuba, Laos, and Vietnam. Contrast this with the 25 nations who were followers during communism’s peak. If we…

    We kill animals, insects, bacteria, plants, and more without remorse or care. No tears are shed for the wanton slaughter of insects or the mass extermination of trees. Every season we harvest our genetically engineered (or selectively bred) animals and plants. No one has nightmares over the death of a spider who was stepped on; a casualty of coincidence. And I don’t see media decrying the abject domestication and persistent war against dangerous and helpful bacterium. As every day we wash our hands at the sink we are obliterating countless cellular and complex organisms. For the most part I…

    Racism has existed since competing tribes have existed. It is a deeply engrained, biological creation. It occurs through a need for the brain to process vast quantities of information in an efficient manner. We categorize, we stereotype, and we generalize people into convenient ‘groups’. That’s not to say racism is good. Racism is clearly bad from a social and economic point of view. But it is the truth. We do not have the cognitive resources to process the amount of information we go through on a daily basis. Just think about how large your ‘video’ file would be if, everything you…

  • A Brief History of Golf

    angela moore
    24 Apr 2015 | 12:34 pm
    The game of golf as we know it today can be attributed to the Scots, although there are records of several stick and ball games throughout history. As far back as the 13th century, the Dutch played a game where a leather ball was hit with the intention of reaching a target several hundred yards away. The winner would be the player who reached the target with the fewest shots. However, the Scottish sport, which was known as Golf, had one distinction that separates it from similar sports in history: the hole. When we’re talking about the modern game with 18 holes, golf history traces its…
