And here is another (shorter) story I wrote for our November issue
about a little known part of the immigration debate that prevents hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants from earning a pay check. As one source in my story asks, "What sort of country is this that brings people in but doesn't give them equal rights?"

My latest:

"For some students, the difficulty in choosing a school sometimes leads to making no decision at all. On Decision Day, increasing numbers of students are paying deposits at two, three or even four schools so they can hold their places while they decide — or while they hold out to see if they get off the waitlist at their dream school. Colleges call it “summer melt” and plan for a certain percentage of committed freshmen to essentially drop out before the first day of school."

I wrote about my home state! 

“We talk about a boat in eastern Washington, we’re talking about a row boat with a set of oars on it that we take fishing on the little lakes. If you talk about a boat in western Washington, you’re talking about a yacht.”

Here is a link to my story on international adoption in this week's magazine, but alas, it's only available to subscribers online. Grab a copy if you can—I'm really proud of this one.

My latest on the continuing drama at UVA:

"Trustees at the University of Virginia voted unanimously on Tuesday to reinstate the president they ousted just two weeks ago. But while the decision to restore Teresa Sullivan to the position she had held since August 2010 brings to an end days of swirling uncertainty, speculation and campus protests, the issues the drama brought to the forefront are likely to echo across college campuses nationwide for months to come."

Wonder Woman Warren for U.S. Senate in MA, latest TV spot correctly attacks D.C. for Oil subsidies and other giveaways. Why doesn't she attack big Academia for the high debts of education for students ?  She is extremely well paid as Harvard prof..

Just realized I forgot to share my latest stories on Google+. Here is my first feature for Marie Claire about rape on college campuses. Here's one quote from the story that I find particularly haunting: "I don't particularly like phrasing it this way, but in a purely statistical sense, a college campus is a pretty safe place to commit a sexual assault from the perspective of a rapist. Your odds of having anything serious happen to you are really, really small," said one expert.

Dear Kayla,
I am Jamson Mahbub an Investigative Reporter of SA TV, Bangladesh. In the last 20 years Bangladesh witnessed the murder of 13 Journalists and most of them were crime reporters. And the world saw murders of some 962 Journalists around the globe in the same period. Last year  the renowned journalist couple of Bangladesh, Shagar Sarwar and Mehrun Runi were murdered brutally.  I believe this is not only a concern for Bangladeshi Journalists but staggering for the whole world in deed.
I would really appreciate if you can kindly make up some time so that I can take your (the person concerned) interview through SKYPE in this regard. I am planning to make an in-depth report on the issue. So, your co-operation is highly cherished.   

Please feel free to contact for any further information.

I'm going back to school. ...for work:

"On the plus side, MOOCs are free, open to anyone and taught by professors at prestigious universities. On the downside, they have low completion rates, and critics questions the utility of students being graded by their peers. TIME is enrolling in several of these classes to see what all the fuss is about."
