An idea so crazy, it just might work. 
First, it entirely removes up-front tuition barriers to attending college. Second, after the transition to Pay It Forward is complete, the system is not only entirely self-financing – it also supports successive net increases in college enrollment, making higher education both more affordable ...

Grimm alleges the decision to carry through with the charges may have been influenced by “wide publicity about sexual assaults in the military.”
After the rape, Morthole said Bohlayer tried accompany her to her house in a cab, but when she refused, “he got within six inches of my face and started screaming obscenities at me, which prompted the guard I was standing next to to hold up his arm and say, 'Stand down.'” ...

[re-shared] WTF is wrong with Carl Levin? He can't retire soon enough! This is just the latest sign of his sudden lurch towards insanity that became obvious with his "bipartisan" effort to kill the filibuster reform.

This is kind of amazing. (Full disclosure: I also did not read the books.)
George R.R. Martin, the author who wrote the books that inspired the HBO series, once said in an interview that the “Red Wedding” scene was inspired by the real-life Black Dinner, which took place in 1440 in Scotland. William Douglas, the 6th Earl of Douglas, visited 10-year-old King James II of ...

The (mostly female) workforce that's getting an all-too-small chunk of tuition dollars.

Sigh. 
The PWFA responds to many concerns raised in a report released on Wednesday by the National Women's Law Center and A Better Balance which highlights the ways many employers fail to make basic accommodations for pregnant women. The report, “It Shouldn't Be a Heavy Lift: Fair Treatment for ...

Great, thanks. 
“I have advised some women attorneys that a jacket with sleeves below the elbow is appropriate or a professional dress equivalent,” he wrote in the upcoming newsletter. “Your personal appearance in court is a reflection upon the entire legal profession.” Though Taylor's letter is set to appear ...

It's not entirely clear whether the target is attorneys or all women who show up in court (including witnesses and defendants). One quoted sentence suggests that the "code" would apply to attorneys, but it hardly seems likely that attorneys would show up in court wearing sundresses, miniskirts or sweatpants, or, for that matter, their male counterparts would show up wearing shorts or tank tops. Attorneys are drilled in law school  to choose proper "professional" attire -- this is usually not something that comes from the courts. So I would be somewhat surprised if he's really targeting attorneys. The other point is that the screed is going to be in a newsletter. That hardly sounds like a formal dress code. There is reason to be concerned, however. First, he compares the courtroom to a church. This might be natural for a retired chaplain, but he really should put a sock into that one. And, no matter how sexist his preferences may sound (for all we know he considers knee-length skirt to be "revealing"), the usual advice for lawyers is to cater to judges' whims or risk antagonizing them -- unless, of course, the judge gets sanctioned by some oversight institution.

This is getting kind of amazing. 
The Obama administration had appealed the decision of Judge Edward R. Korman, who similarly ordered the FDA to make the drug available over the counter and without age restriction in a scathing decision in which he said the agency “bowed to political pressure” and that Health and Human Services ...

NG FOR IN A MAN

I am looking to meet someone who is honest,sweet,caring,attractive,someone
who is getting tired of the bar scene, someone who is looking for something that can turn into a long term relationship and possibly marriage.
Someone who will enjoy just spending time together no matter what we're doing.I would love to start traveling more as well.
I am into sports and like to explore many different things.I am a fun loving person who loves to laugh and make others laugh.
I always try to enjoy the simple things in life,and not take anything for granted. I also enjoy spending time with the familys
watching football and playing with the neice and nephews.
I love to go out and have fun,but I can also stay in and just relax

Megyn Kelly, you're awesome. Even if you claim not to be feminist. 
“Oh it doesn't have anything to do with submissiveness per se and it was certainly poorly constructed how I said it. What I meant is, look, throughout society, look at other animals, the male of the species choose to be the protector,” Erickson began. “We've gotten to a point in this country ...
