“What’s more, taxpayers are now paying for schools that are unregulated and by many measures unsuccessful at actually educating people. A 2011 report on commercial colleges from the National Bureau of Economic Research found that students from for-profits “are more likely to be unemployed and to have experienced substantial unemployment (more than three months) since leaving school.” In addition to finding it more difficult to secure employment, those for-profit graduates who did get jobs earned on average $1,800 to $2,000 less a year than they would have, had they gone to a public school or nonprofit institution.”—http://america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2014/4/gi-bill-for-profitcollegesveterans.html
To prepare for the season two premiere of Orphan black on April 19th we thought we’d take a look back at season one in every way we possibly could. Since we’re already on Tumblr we thought, (and sorry Tumblr mobile users) why not just turn the entire thing into GIFs? Why not just turn EVERYTHING into GIFs? As we’re pretty busy this week we’re going to start with season one of OB, and next: THE WORLD.

John Coltrane Talks About Malcolm X and Music of the Times
Dave Liebman posted this audio interview with John Coltrane on Facbook. About the interview, he writes, “Maybe the best interview of Trane from 1966. Sounds like it was done at his home in Long Island by Frank Kofsky. His humility is astounding and some great thoughts concerning recordings. - Lieb” Thanks, Dave.
