Given all the popular cooking shows on TV these days, no wonder high school students (and their parents) are beginning to ask how food is at different colleges and about the food scene in nearby neighborhoods and towns. I have personal experience with a "foody" son. Way before the current...

Tyler Lewis | May 28, 2015 | College
I just recently finished my first year at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. While I hate using cliché metaphors, I would be neglecting their typical accuracy by not comparing my first year of college to that of a roller coaster ride.

Scott Weingold | May 28, 2015 | College

Aran Khanna | May 27, 2015 | Technology
It seems so harmless to attach a location with a single message, but the problem is over time the information from these messages adds up. You can see for yourself the potentially invasive usage of the information you share, and decide for yourself if this is something you should worry about.
