CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. − Beyond the crest of Heartbreak Hill, just past a patch of asphalt stamped “Water Station Mile 21” on the Boston Marathon route, Patrick Downes, dressed in a collared shirt and gray slacks, walked on stage at Boston College’s Robsham Theatre. He strode by a sheet of loose-leaf paper marked “Do Not Step Here,” and took a seat behind a microphone in a black wooden chair. It was minutes past 7 p.m. on April 14, hours short of the second anniversary of two backpack bombs exploding five miles east on Boylston St. He was introduced to 450 students and alumni as a bombing survivor. He reflected on his route home. “The last time I was on this stage I think I was wearing a mullet, impersonating Doug Flutie,” he said. “I chose not to bring the mullet wig tonight.” That was as a student more than a decade ago. He spiked a football and performed one-arm pushups then, co-eds on campus likening his look to Prince … [Read more...] about At 2015 Boston Marathon, bombing survivors set to go distance
Google rewarded the man who bought its domain for a single minute with a “very Googley” bounty. The multi-billion dollar search engine giant paid Boston-area business student Sanmay Ved $6,006.13 — which spells out “Google” numerically — after he reported a hiccup in the system that allowed him to buy Google.com for just $12 in September. Having a hard time spotting “Google” in that lump sum? “Squint a little and you’ll see it!” Google wrote in a Thursday blog post announcing the prize. Ved wrote about his purchase and the subsequent reward last year, but refused to reveal how much he had earned. “Google Security has now contacted me, and has offered me a $x reward in a very Googley way. I have opted to donate the money to charity,” he wrote in a post on LinkedIn. When Google learned Ved was giving all of his bounty to the Art of Living … [Read more...] about Here’s how much Google paid to get its name back from the MBA student who briefly owned Google.com
By Chris Taylor NEW YORK (Reuters) - For most students, getting their college bachelor's degree takes four years. For some, five. For Michelle Schroeder-Gardner? Three. The 28-year-old financial blogger from St. Louis graduated in business administration and management in 2010, and then later got a finance MBA. By stacking credits while still in high school and taking a heavy course load in college, she shaved a full year off her college experience at Webster University. "I saved at least $40,000," she says. Schroeder-Gardner's college-on-steroids experience is an instructive one. What if one solution to the nation's student debt crisis were right in front of our noses this whole time: Finishing your degree as quickly as humanly possible? A quarter of students already take an accelerated load, according to a new report by student loan company Sallie Mae, "How America Pays for College." If a student combines that with the ballooning number of advanced-placement credits, it … [Read more...] about Your Money: How college fast-trackers save time and money
