Plenty of high-school graduates find it discouraging to select their major, especially when everybody around them seems to have reached their unique solution. The major selection isn’t permanent and is amenable to correction but an early right choice can save you time and money. This article gives some hints on this urgent topic.
I Hold to Your Interests
1. Reckon with your hobbies, passions, and values. These essential questions are most often missed by students. Usually graduates ask themselves about benefits of the major and about job it will bring. More significant is that a major is not inevitably a high road to a prospective career. R Read more…

NYU’s expansion plans hit a snag today after State Supreme Court Justice in Manhattan Donna Mills ruled that the city illegally approved construction within public parklands without New York State’s approval. Mills dismissed five other claims against NYU’s pending construction on the two superblocks housing the Washington Square Village, Silver Towers, and Coles Sports Center.
The city’s approval of NYU’s proposal violated the Public Trust Doctrine and therefore allocated three strips of public parkland for non-park uses without proper approval. Now, the university must seek the State Legislator’s approval before using these small parklands for the project.
“So NYU has to go back to square one, said Randy Mastro, lawyer for NYUs opposition. Its massive expansion project is now dead, absent State Legislature approval, and that is never going to happen. End of story.

Do you have anything you’d like to add to the discussion, Terry?
The scene was a meeting at the Edusummit conference at UNESCO in Paris in 2011. The question came from the Chair.
Thank you, but no: everything I was going to say has already been said.
That was my response, because I didn’t see any purpose in repeating points that had not only been made, but also generally agreed upon. In fact, my contributions to many meetings are based on Salvator Rosa’s, dictum:
Be silent, unless what you have to say is better than silence.
The question is: does that make me a good collaborator, or not so good? How do we measure such things? And does any of it matter anyway?
Such navel-gazing arises from the fact that I’ve been asked to chair a seminar at BETT about measuring what we might call “soft” skills. Skills such as collaboration. Called “Mea

We witnessed the biggest win by a Big 12 team this week as well as the biggest upset of the season. Heres how those two games impacted the fifth week of this seasons power rankings.
1. Oklahoma Sooners (4-0, 1-0)
Previous ranking: T-3rd
The Sooners can easily claim that they have the best win of the year in the Big 12 after defeating a ranked Notre Dame team 35-21 on the road. Like all of their wins this season, OUs defense stepped up in a big way. The Sooners intercepted Tommy Rees twice within a 43-second span and scored 14 points off of those two turnovers. Other than giving up an 80-yard rushing touchdown, OU made Notre Dame work for their points.
