Facebook Profiles
As Facebook has become more and more popular—if it were a country, it would be the third largest in the world—its use in the field of education has expanded, too. In fact, more than 80% of college admissions officers report using Facebook as part of their recruiting process.

Are admissions officers really looking at the Facebook profiles of prospective students? And if so, are they making admissions decisions based on these profiles?

Look over this infographic. What piece of information surprises you? Is there any information that you do not understand? How do you feel about college admissions officers checking prospective students' Facebook pages?

Teen Drivers: The Risks & Dangers


Teenagers face increased risks and dangers over other drivers. Teenagers between the ages of 16 and 19 are 4 times more likely to get into accidents while driving than the average adult. The younger they are, the more at risk they are - 16-year-olds are twice as likely to crash per mile driven than 18-19 year-olds. In 2008, 6,428 teens were killed in car accidents.

Which type of driver should really worry us? The best way to answer is to look at the strengths and weaknesses of both kinds of motorists.
