Here’s the news that caught my eye today while wishing contributor Bridget Casey a happy birthday.
(The link back to your blog counts as a gift, right?)
- Further proof that there’s a scholarship for everyone, even the undead: presenting the zombie apocalypse scholarship. Use your brain (your sweet, delicious brain) and apply already!
- Want to hurt Peyton Manning? (We are in Patriots territory here, after all.) Well, you can’t sack the Denver QB/Papa John’s franchise owner—but you can cripple him financially by buying half-price pizzas. OK, your business probably helps more than it hurts, but isn’t cheap pizza worth it?
- If paying half-price or helping out Peyton is too much for you, head on over to Michael Scott’s favorite pizza joint instead. Just punch in your ZIP code on this site and see if you’re able to get a free NY slice from Sbarro.
- A dean at USC says students and their parents should think of unpaid internships as “learning experiences,” not “jobs.” Something tells me unpaid interns with an inbox full of assignments and demanding bosses may disagree. (Interns Shane and Alexandra get the best of both worlds—paychecks and a demanding boss. Wait a second…)
- Who’s the best person to get advice from about giving gifts? Why, a behavioral economist, of course! Bloomberg has tips from one such economist, based on six behavioral findings (like thinking people like what you like) that lead directly to missing the mark.
