College grads taking more
unpaid internships, jobs
out of chosen field

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Lauren Mennen

Original Article

Posted By:Calvinesq, 2/3/2013 7:30:05 AM

Recent college graduates and even those who have been out of school for several years now are finding an increasingly harder time getting a job in this economy. The amount of young adults – from ages 18 to 29 – who are unemployed rose over 1.5 percent in January to 13.1 percent, according to statistics released Friday. The overall unemployment rate had a smaller increase - rising 0.1 percent to 7.9 percent - according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Careful who you vote for next time.

I see this every day. I work at a university and see my students taking just about any job they can get.

Everyone was warned that this was coming, but of course young college students failed to do their political homework and voted against their best interests. Now many will suffer for the rest of their lives with short circuited careers. Many will lose a million dollars or more in lifetime income. I´ve never seen such a direct correlation between a vote and prosperity in my lifetime. The sad thing is that no one in the Democratic party cares, because these young college people were just pawns in a political game to advance socialism at any cost. Sad thing is that most of these young people don´t even know what socialism or any other ´ism´ means. Lambs to the Democratic slaughter.

The young voters wanted Obama and now they are stuck with the Emperor King and his failed economy. Enjoy the poverty, millenials. Winston Churchill said that anyone who was a conservative at age 20 had no heart, and anyone who was a liberal at age 40 had no head. Hopefully, these younglings will get heads over the next 15 years...

But, by golly, they have FREE BIRTH CONTROL.

Some time ago I remember someone saying that in time a college degree would mean about the same as a high school diploma to employers. Looks like that time is here.

If you get a degree in Art history, womens studies, or basket weaving... You will be unemployed!

Accounting
Math
Health care
Engineering
Hospitality
Criminal justice
More useful degrees... I also advocate for community college 2 year degrees.
Allied Health degrees

Not everyone is college material. We have a bunch of ignorant children who feel good about themselves.

Never give away your work to a profit making entity.

If you think they will hire you at the end of your internship, look behind you, because there are 30 people who just graduated for them to pick from.

This is not an apprenticeship program.

And if you want to make films STOP giving it away on youtube.

You can buy knowledge and degrees, but wisdom comes only with age and experience. At some point millions of unemployed college grads are going to realize they got screwed by a Pied Piper who only needed their votes. When wisdom comes their anger will no longer be misdirected at George Bush and republicans.

The propagandized youth voted for the Obummer economy. When will they throw off the yoke of the Leftist education and on-going propaganda and learn about real life?

The scary thing about the Unemployed College Ninnies for Obama is that they will become what most Democrats are: bitter; envious; and unhappy people.

Instead of realizing their mistake, they will support ever more anti-business regulations, more generous safety nets and more intrusive rules on our lives (ban plastic bags, forbid guns, more stringent building codes, no fracking, mandates for "living wage").

Or simply, we didn´t get our share, so why should you enjoy yours.

I feel for this years´ college grads, however many of them would have done better with vo-tech schools and community colleges. My advice to my kids and their friends in their forties who hold good jobs is to avail themselves of advanced education, the sort of new skills the college grads have (I´m thinking particularly of the computer crowd). The bosses can hire these new grads for a LOT LESS money. My son´s employer offers lots of opportunities for more education and my son takes every one he can.

And #11, if you can find a black democrat made of glass you´ve got it made.

This is another Agenda 21 tactic; Entice youth to take out easy school loans to get degreed in anything. Once they graduate & realize there´s no where to go or their debt is too high to manage, offer them civil servant jobs... that will forgive student loan debts after 2 to 3 years.

The result is a generation of youth who never knew the path to success...never experienced the joy of individual accomplishment... and are trained to depend on gov´t for their needs... ergo, slaves.

A woman who, as a newborn, was abandoned in the bathroom of a Pennsylvania fast-food restaurant said she has found her birth mother just three weeks after launching a search that garnered worldwide attention, and as her mother prepared to look for her. Katheryn Deprill, 27, said Tuesday she felt "pure joy" when she met her biological mother for the first time Monday at an attorney´s office. And, after she learned the sad details of her conception and abandonment, she said she understood why her mom did what she did. "She is better than anything I could´ve ever imagined. She

First Amendment enthusiasts are thrilled that Mike Adams, a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, won his lawsuit against administrators who denied him a promotion because of his conservative, Christian views. Adams joined the university in 1993. He was an atheist at the time. By the year 2000, he had converted to Christianity and become an outspoken political conservative. He eventually wrote columns for Townhall.com.

A glitch in Obamacare

Nearly six months after the disastrous launch of Healthcare.gov, with the website running smoothly and more than five million people signed up as open enrollment heads to a close, a new glitch has come to light: Incorrect poverty-level guidelines are automatically telling what could be tens of thousands of eligible people they do not qualify for subsidized insurance. The error in the federal marketplace primarily affects households with incomes just above the poverty line in states like Pennsylvania that have not expanded Medicaid. The mistake raises the price of their insurance by thousands of dollars, making insurance so unaffordable many

Playing classical music to your child
can improve their listening skills

Daily Mail (UK), by Sarah Harris    Original Article

Playing classical music such as Beethoven and Mozart to young children boosts their concentration and self-discipline, a new study suggests. Youngsters also improve their general listening and social skills by being exposed to repertoires from composers including Ravel, Shostakovich and Mendelssohn. In addition, they are likely to appreciate a wider range of music in later years, according to a study from the Institute of Education, (IoE), University of London.

ANTIOCH, CA. - Police say a man with every intention of robbing a Wells Fargo Bank, entered that establishment on Monday morning and approached a bank teller.

According to police, the teller was unable to decipher the handwriting and then contacted her manager for assistance. As the teller consulted with her manager, police say the suspect made a break for it, exiting the bank through the back door.

The box arrived at Ted Nobles´ house in Middletown, Del., two days before Christmas, and, for the longest time, he let it sit there, unopened. "I was overwhelmed," he says. The sender was an older man in Fresno, Calif., a vet who had served in the same part of Europe during World War II as Nobles´ great-uncle Wally. For more than a decade, Nobles had been researching the history of his family, including his maternal grandmother´s only sibling, Lt.

Ethan Krupp, the little man who played “Pajama Boy” in a widely mocked Obamacare ad, once characterized himself as a “liberal f[***].” Krupp, an Organizing for Action (OFA) content writer who became the face of progressive America while wearing a onesie pajama suit, also remarked that gays “are all liberal f[***]s” and criticized a “conservative gay p[****]” on his now-deleted WordPress blog, entitled “Not Being Creative.”

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
