Here’s the news that caught my eye today while realizing that any employee can anger their boss by tweeting.
(Oh, and by taking steroids too. Bosses probably don’t like that much either.)
- Today’s student loan interest update: There’s still no resolution. Also, don’t expect one by July 1, says ABC News. If the senate does reach a compromise, it will likely be something they “attempt to fix retroactively” (which is actually what also happened last year). Gee, wouldn’t it be nice if you could fix other things about student loans retroactively, like borrowing them?
- Think you’ll spend your summer internship sitting in an office? Well, not if you work for a news station covering the Supreme Court. There, interns literally sprint to deliver the court’s decisions to on-air anchors. This feels like another summer tradition to me: color war. Where’s Rudy the Rabbit when you need him? He’d be awesome at this.
- Speaking of the Supreme Court, they handed down a pretty important ruling today, finding the the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to be unconstitutional. Nerd Wallet details how this could impact same-sex couples financially, including the fact that some couples filing jointly could actually see their tax bills increase. (Probably worth it, though, right?)
- I didn’t attend grad school, so I don’t know much about it, besides that it’s supposedly not much fun (wonder if the latter influenced the former?). But that could all change soon, thanks to a new project: GradPay. According to The Billfold, GradPay could help students figure out if grad school is right for them by asking master’s and Ph.D. students ”about the kind of work they do, how much they’re paid, and what kind of benefits, health or otherwise, they receive.“
- Getting an entry-level job always feels like a catch-22: You can’t get a job without experience; you can’t get experience without a job. In the end, you get frustrated, sit on the couch, and eat Hot Pockets (it happens to all of us). Well, HackCollege has suggestions that can help—and not, like, “Go for Lean Pockets because they’re better for you” suggestions. Rather, they’ve found five ways to boost your résumé without actually landing a job.
- There’s no better way to beat the heat than sitting in an air-conditioned movie theater for a couple hours. Enter AMC. Through August 14, they’re offering $3 movies at 10 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Sure, the timing is crummy and the movies are second-runs you’ve probably seen before (well, maybe not Olympus Has Fallen), but hey, air conditioning!
