This has led to increased tuition costs and lending to individuals who will more than likely never be able to pay back their student loans. The end result, according to Mark Cuban, will be a bursting of the debt bubble, a significant drop in college tuitions, and an outright collapse of America’s institution of higher learning: College tuitions have exploded because of easy money guaranteed by Sallie Mae.

A Navy SEAL's 5 Tips to Train Your Dog Former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland is a soft-spoken guy — but he knows how to get a dog's attention. "It's all about how you carry yourself," says Ritland, who is now paid up to $100,000 per animal to train dogs for the military and homeowners at his Trikos school in Dallas. "Training dogs for the military is no different than training your dog to not bark — They always respond to non-verbal communication, reinforcement and psychology." In his new book How to Train Your Dog—The Navy SEAL Way, out today, Ritland explains how to use the SEAL mindset to transform your dog into an elite pet.

I work in a residential special school and, in my spare time, I enjoy listening to music and spending probably more time than is good for me on Facebook!

This brings with it a lot of strengths and also a lot of issues. In this blog, I will be evaluating my life with Aspergers and letting my readership into my innermost thoughts.

Rand Paul and Edward Snowden Will Speak at the Same Conference this Weekend - Bloomberg Politics On Saturday night, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul will give a video address to the International Students For Liberty Conference in downtown Washington, D.C. One night earlier, self-exiled whistleblower Edward Snowden—who has a little less mobility inside the United States than Paul—will address ISFL "via videoconference," according to organizers. Paul has consistently spoken out on behalf of Snowden, calling his actions "civil disobedience," and saying that if Snowden faced justice he should "share a jail cell" with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Not every potential 2016er could appear on the same virtual dais as Snowden.
