U.S. President Barack Obama speaks before signing a Presidential Memorandum at the White House in Washington

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama will issue rules on Friday aimed at cracking down on low-performing for-profit career training colleges the administration says bury students under mountains of debt and fail to prepare them for a well-paying job.

Vue artistique d’exoplanètes terrestres. © NASA/JPL-Caltech Par Guillaume Cannat Des exoplanètes deux à trois fois plus massives que la Terre pourraient se révéler plus adaptées à l’apparition de la vie que notre planète. Dans cette hypothèse, deux astronomes proposent d’étudier avec la plus grande attention le système planétaire qui semble entourer l’une des étoiles les plus proches du Soleil, Alpha Centauri B, pour y chercher des mondes « super habitables. » « Pour être habitable, un monde (planète ou lune) n’a pas besoin de se situer dans la zone d’habitabilité d’une étoile. De même, un monde circulant dans cette zone d’habitabilité n’est pas…

Revoking recognition means the 65-year-old local chapter is no longer affiliated with ASU. The group won’t be listed on the university’s website and cannot…

13 Words You Probably Didn’t Know Were Invented By Shakespeare

Wikimedia

Like Precalculus and Newton’s laws, Shakespeare’s plays are among the most groaned-about high school topics, begetting the complaint: “When will I ever need to know about this in real life?” Turns out, pretty often. Shakespeare can be credited for the invention of thousands of words that are now an everyday part of the English language (including, but not limited to, “eyeball,” “fashionable,” and “manager.”) In addition to his being a particularly clever wordsmith, Shakespeare’s word invention can be credited to the fact that the English language as a whole was in a major state of flux during the time that…
