What I earned at Condé Nast far exceeds the value of any unlimited Metro Card, living stipend, or hourly wage they could have given me.
So you can chalk up face time with editors, writers, researchers, and stylists, who you are now separated from by one degree to whatever the hourly wage comes out to be, based on your small stipend, or you can accept the experience for its face value: priceless.
Furthering the debate over Condé Nast shutting down their intern program, this pre-med student interned at a magazine company. Nonetheless, she does make a point, I too don’t have anything to regret with my unpaid internship experience. But something should be done.

The trial of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy is set to start on Monday, four months after a military coup removed him from power.
As the trial starts, there is concern of a fair trial and the restarting of civil unrest across Egypt. Definitely something to keep an eye out for.

Test uestion 1 on the first-grade test is based on the New York Common Core Standard, 1.OA4: Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. (Really.)
Debate this. This piece really brings up a lot of points comparing U.S. education to international educational systems. It covers how first grade starts much earlier here than elsewhere and takes into account an odd test a first grader had to take. And interestingly, the tests “were internationally benchmarked.” Even if we may be behind other countries, is that fair?
