    Are Smart Drugs A Smart Way To Get Ahead?
    Psychology Today
    School's almost out and final exams are approaching. As the economy slowly builds steam, hiring trends are looking hopeful and pay raises and promotions are on the incline. And some people, young and old, are popping pills to ensure they don't get left behind. Among the most common brain-boosting pills are prescription stimulants used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), such as Adderall and Ritalin, and the wakefulness-promoting medication modafinil (Provigil). Dubbed "smart drugs," "study drugs," "cognitive enhancers" and other terms that ring with positivity, these pills have sparked a heated debate about the ethics of using drugs to get ahead.

    Differences Give Mixed-Heritage Students A Common Bond
    Los Angeles Times
    No matter what their ancestry or their skin color, many members of UCLA's Mixed Student Union say they have repeatedly been asked the same question by classmates and strangers curious about an ambiguous racial appearance: "What are you?" And that shared experience, they say, helps to bond the otherwise extremely diverse group, which is devoted to the rising numbers of students who are biracial and from mixed ethnic heritages.

    COIL — Virtual Mobility Without Commercialization
    University World News
    Much, if not all, of the debate in higher education seems to be focused these days on massive open online courses, or MOOCs, which according to several people should be considered nothing less than a revolutionary new model for higher education teaching and learning. In the meantime, a slower burning addition to international teaching and learning is already taking place with much less attention — "virtual mobility," as it is called in Europe, or "collaborative online international learning," as it is more correctly referred to in the United States.

    Scrutiny Of QS Rankings
    Inside Higher Ed
    Upon signing up for Opinion Outpost, a website on which users take surveys for points that can be redeemed for cash, an untenured philosophy professor took surveys related to toilet paper brands and frozen foods and other sundries. Completing the surveys at $1 to $5 a pop was a good way to make some extra pocket money, explained the professor, who preferred not to be named. Most of the surveys the professor completed through Opinion Outpost did not seem to be particularly high-stakes, but one, in retrospect, was: the QS Global Academic Survey, which counts for 40 percent of the QS World University Rankings, one of three major international university ranking systems.
