Rolling Stone retracted "A Rape on Campus," but what impact will this have on victims of sexual assault? I spoke with Kelly McBride, media ethicist and VP of academic programs for the Poynter Institute: http://yhoo.it/1GZVO9s

The United States unemployment rate has been slowly but continually dropping since peaking at 10 percent in October 2009. Today it stands at 5.5 percent, with 295,000 jobs added last month alone. In fact, more jobs were created in 2014 than in any year since 1999. The flip side is that 9 million workers remain without a job, a number that might be much lower if those Americans had the necessary skills that many companies currently seek. In fact, ...
