The Anti-Thiel Fellowship: $100,000 To Students Who Stay In School And Work On Their Ideas Every year, Peter Thiel offers a select group of entrepreneurial college students $100,000 and the promise of mentorship to quit school and work on their passion projects. Michael Baum, a serial entrepreneur who most recently founded the big data company Splunk, does the opposite: He offers teams of student entrepreneurs $100,000 and mentorship to work on their dream projects--while still staying in school. Baum launched his initiative, Founder.org, as a way to bridge the gap between school and having a successful company. In 2013, Founder.org received over 300 applications and selected 10 teams from its dozens of partner schools. This year, nearly 1,000 applications yielded 10 winning teams and 40 finalist teams that will be eligible for prizes during the year-long accelerator's annual Founder Forum.
Pay Off Your Student Loans With Volunteer Work Through SponsorChange Amid the great music and movies (and, yes, parties) that will light up Austin, Texas, next month during the South by Southwest festival, a small nonprofit called SponsorChange.org will receive a community service award for finding a way to help college graduates battle student loan debt by volunteering. If you have a student loan (and we're guessing you do—the researchers at ProjectOnStudentDebt.org say seven of 10 college students who graduated in 2013 owed money on a student loan, averaging nearly $30,000 in debt each) or would love to help others knock down those payments, you'll want to know about SponsorChange. Here's how it works: Graduates with student loan debt sign up to volunteer at organizations that need manpower. The grads help their community by putting in hours toward that organization's goals.

Actually about doing a lot of GREAT and BIG things. #smcampn As I woke up to the morning news on February the 15th I was shocked to discover that my hometown Chelyabinsk in Russia was struck by a meteor. As the day progressed, many Russian people started uploading their photographs and videos online across various platforms. I remembered the Crowdmap experiment that we did in the Social Media Campaigning class and I thought that it might be helpful in this real situation to gather all the content about the meteor in one place. I have used the template that we set up in the class but i had to make a few changes: Firstly, I had to ensure that my Crowdmap is in Russian language. Luckily, Crowdmap support various languages and I had no problem switching to Russian.
The Working Tools of a Master Mason "On a certain level, the crucifixion was a great mystical and magical act —- perhaps the greatest feat of divine magic ever performed. In submitting to the crucifixion, Lord Yeshua [Jesus] made his body a magical talisman of liberation. In effect, cosmic ignorance, the law, and karmic matrix were crucified (suspended), so that anyone who identifies with Lord Yeshua is “drawing near” and Yeshua made himself a vehicle through which others may draw near to supernal being." "'Sigil' as a word is out of date.
