In light of last month’s connection-spam lawsuit, we thought it’d be wise to talk about how to connect with new professional contacts on LinkedIn. After all, the point of social media is to be, well, social, which involves introducing yourself to new people and starting conversations. Today, we’ll discuss the top three unwritten rules of “connection invitations” over LinkedIn.
A private school in Melbourne, Australia, took a hit last week as reports emerge of student gambling within a local gaming store. According to The New Daily, a group of young men—still dressed in their private school’s uniform—frequently visit the local TAB outlet and bet large sums of money that one local bystander described as “staggering.” The outlets didn’t notify the school that students in their uniform were placing bets, and the headmaster has found himself unable to address the problem without knowing who the gambling students are.
But Australia isn’t the only country that’s been affected by student gambling. Advances in technology and lack of oversight have resulted in a new wave of addictive gaming behaviors that have been ridiculed by media and leave administrators floundering to regain control.
Q: Our school recently received an application for financial aid that listed only one income. After we asked for clarification, we learned that one of the student’s parents has chosen not to work. We’re at a loss on how to evaluate this particular situation—do you have any advice?
Did you receive an email from LinkedIn on October 2nd about a class action lawsuit? Most emails listing you as a possible claimant in a multi-million dollar settlement are phishing scams—but believe it or not, this one is real. Here’s what happened and what this means for LinkedIn.
In an online universe populated by news media that seems to thrive on negative stories about violence and hate, it's refreshing to stumble across a gem that restores some faith in the future of our species. This month’s School Spotlight features one such story coming from the University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy—and a budding engineer who helped make a mother’s dream come true.
