    They're known as some of the most inspirational businessmen in history. But the success of industry giants such as Sir Richard Branson and Lord Sugar is actually putting working-class boys off of further education. A number of high profile celebrities who have gone on to make their fortunes after dropping out of education or choosing to not go to university are inspiring young men to following in their footsteps, according to a new report.

    Every January, Glassdoor publishes its list of the best jobs of the year. For 2016, the top spot goes to data scientist. "It isn't a big surprise to see data scientist at No. 1 this year because it's one of the hottest and fastest growing jobs we're seeing right now," says Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor's chief economist. "Since all companies have an online presence these days, they all need people who know how to manage and store data that helps them make better business decisions, compared to years ago when businesses didn't have data management at their fingertips to review...

    Students on Cabrillo College Nursing Program’s waiting list are postponing their careers for six years or more due to high demand and a new state-approved application called the multicriteria selection process.

    If you are trying to figure out what to major in at college, then take a look at typical salaries for each major. After all, odds are that college will cost you or your son, daughter or grandchild a lot. It makes sense to get a handle on the payback. Clarifying your career-earnings prospects can aid your career planning and retirement planning.

The complaint, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, reads like a soap opera: "This action arises from the tragic tale of a greedy stage mother posing as a talent manager who, instead of acting in the best interest of her daughter/client, schemed to defraud her unsuspecting victim."

After making his name as the eccentric and beloved alien on 1970s TV hit Mork and Mindy, Robin transferred his attentions to Hollywood with a stream of box office hits.

"Now he says the wrong thing and the NBA wants to oust him. So we live in an era, unfortunately,...

    This month, high school seniors across America are receiving college decision letters of acceptance and rejection. Many of these students, and their parents, will think that where they go to college will significantly affect their employment future. They think wrong. Today, whether you go to college retains some importance in your employment options. But where you go to college is of almost no importance. Whether your degree, for example, is from UCLA or from less prestigious Sonoma State matters far less than your academic performance and the skills you can show employers.

Colleges have been selling this idea that going to college will get you a job, but this isn't the case any more, she says. And if getting a college degree no longer guarantees you a job offer, then you need to really pinpoint your reasons for going. In fact, unless you're really great at school or got accepted into a...

    A number of recent articles explore the growing trend among college-age people to question whether college is worth the costs -- both the direct costs in terms of tuition and opportunity costs in terms of lost time. In other words, many more college-eligible people are now thinking outside the college box. Three factors are impelling this widespread re-examination of the necessity of college. First, the soaring cost of college tuition and the debt it is causing are becoming widely known. For example, the NY Times has prominently reported that average student loan debt rose 5% from 2010 to 2011, now...

And no sooner had she been acquitted on all counts except for lying to police than...

Stock, who was responsible for dozens of hits as part of Stock, Aitken and Waterman and helped launch Kylie Minogue's pop career, put some of the blame on the rise of stars including Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. He said they were among a wave of performers who 'have taken sexualised imagery, dance moves and lyrical content way beyond the limits of decency'.

The English major asks, Would you like fries with that? But exactly what an English major makes in a lifetime has never been clear, and some defenders of the humanities have said that their students are endowed with critical thinking and other skills that could enable them to catch up to other students in earnings. Turns out, on average, they were wrong. Over a lifetime, the earnings of workers who have...

Combining several papers by Stack, we came up with a list of the most suicidal jobs. This list is not weighted for demographic factors. If it were, the list might look different. For instance, men are four times more likely to commit suicide than women, according to Stack, and white Americans are twice as likely to commit suicide as...

The feds are the single largest employer in the country with more than 1.8 million civilian employees on the payroll. Salaries and benefits afforded to government workers are competitive with civilian careers, opportunities to advance are as good or better than in the private sector, and best of all, the government never goes out of business.

Offshoring is a major structural shift in the way the economy works. Alan Blinder has called it a shift equivalent to the industrial revolution. Ponder that!

We were raised to expect that co-parenting was an attainable goal, she laments, yet breast-feeding ties her, and not her husband, to their baby.

    Alec Baldwin, the US actor, has said he has lost interest in acting and considers his film career a failure. "I consider my entire movie career a complete failure," he told the magazine. "The goal of moviemaking is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that." Baldwin has expressed interest in politics in the past but did not say in the interview what he intended to do if he quit acting.

    Why do people say, I hate to say I told you so? People love to say that. And I did tell you so where Mike Huckabee was concerned. Now that Maurice Clemmons, one of the many criminals whose sentences he commuted as Arkansas governor, has apparently gone on to murder four police officers in Washington State, Huckabees political career is finished. He will never be president. He will never be elected to anything. He can keep hosting his show on Fox News and hed better because its the closest to politics hes ever going to come. This is...

    Do you lead one? Do you have one? It's a pretty good question these days since there's a lot of talk about Tribes going around. And it seems to be an evolving situation but an interesting one since it's apparent that it's becoming a very powerful cultural phenomenon. I would say that it's probably because of the increased connectivity we all have allows us access to people who have the same views and values. For more on Tribes, I would recommend Seth Godin's book, oddly enough titled: Tribes. I had the priviledge of attending the recent PGC200 ( launch event...

    The only Republican to vote for the House Democrats' health care reform bill said he voted his conscience, putting aside concerns about the cost in hopes of providing health care access to all Americans. Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao of Louisiana said he cast "a very difficult vote" on Saturday, when the House passed the bill 220-215, just over the 218 required for passage. "But at the end of the day I have to vote on the needs of my district down here in New Orleans and vote according to my conscience," Mr. Cao said in an inte

    Are Career DOJ Bureaucrats Targeting GOP Activists? Posted by: Erick Erickson Friday, October 17, 2008 at 07:18AM CDT The implications of this article are downright frightening. former Republican congressional candidate Tan Nguyen [ ] ran for office in the 47th Congressional District of California in 2006 against incumbent Loretta Sanchez. On October 1, the Civil Rights Division announced the indictment of Nguyen for obstruction of justice for supposedly making misleading statements to investigators regarding a letter that was sent to Latino voters during the election. This investigation and indictment represents a particularly egregious example of the government persecuting someone for...
