Don't Let Your Facebook Follies Wreck Your Future

Good grades and community service hours might not be enough to get students into their dream college anymore.

It might come down to their Facebook pages.

Applying to college? Clean up your Facebook profile
Chron.com-Nov 20, 2014

College admissions officers are turning to sites like Facebook more and more to learn about applicants, a new survey shows.

    • Keeping profiles professional
      DO NOT POST:

      Illegal activities: Students experiment with many activities and substances, but the second you post risky behavior you become vulnerable not only for school expulsion but for criminal prosecution.


      Bullying: This includes any verbal, written or physical conduct that denigrates or shows hostility toward anyone.


      Trash talk about your teachers: You never know which one of your professors will hold the keys to the next great internship or job announcement.


      Lies or plagiarized content: Don’t lie about professional or academic achievements when applying to college or an internship. People will investigate.


      Threaten violence: Even anonymous, empty threats raise red flags. Social media is not the place to vent your frustrations and violent thoughts. Talk to a school counselor.


      ALSO:


      Don’t rely on privacy settings 100 percent. Although most major social network sites update you with privacy improvements, the changes often are too frequent to follow and can get complicated. It’s best to assume anything you post is fair game.

NY GOV. ANDREW CUOMO ANNOUNCES DRAFT MEDICAL MARIJUANA REGULATIONS


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the release of proposed regulations for the State’s medical marijuana program as required by the Compassionate Care Act. The proposed regulations are an important step toward making medical marijuana a treatment option in New York for individuals suffering from one of the debilitating diseases outlined in the Act. These regulations provide a comprehensive structure that will govern all aspects of the medical marijuana program in New York State.

“Today we take another step forward to provide much-needed relief to New Yorkers living with extraordinary pain, while balancing the need to safeguard general public health and safety,” Governor Cuomo said. “These proposed regulations are designed with that in mind, so that we can alleviate suffering for patients with serious conditions while also ensuring that medical marijuana is dispensed and administered responsibly.”

Whoa! Look what things are coming down to! US Cultural collapse! Without reaching back more than a few months, we've had more injustices, inhumanities, scandals and shocks than anyone could have imagined. And they keep coming!

Check Out These Cool, Innovative Ways To Charge Your Cell Phone

2AA Battery Charger

This came for the Dollar store! The same display had USB wires for Androids and iPhone for $1 each, so I bought two for each phone. I picked up a few extra as stocking-stuffers for the coming Holiday Season! I get a full charge on my iPhone from 50% in about twenty minutes! This particular item comes in white or black!

Solar Charger

A full-featured solar charger like mine means you rarely run out of battery power when you're on the go! I got this one for about USD $8 on Ali Baba.  It takes about an hour to fully charge my iPhone from 39%.
