When Jorge Velasquez accepted an internship at Citigroup this summer, he wasn't dreaming about becoming the next Jamie Dimon. He's far more interested in following in the footsteps of Steve Jobs. As a math whiz with a passion for economics, the rising college senior would seem to fit the mold for Wall Street. But Velasquez was actually drawn to the Citi gig because he thought it would make him stand out if he applies for a...

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized Friday for controversial comments he made at a luncheon with the Asian Chamber of Commerce in Las Vegas.

4 Ways Internships Are Still Vital To Landing A Post-College Job

When can a post-grad find love? I’m not talking about actual love — there are several apps for that; I’m talking true, gainful employment love.

When night falls, it's pitch dark on Ellison Drive, except for one street light shining on three school children shooting hoops.

Michael Brown's Family Asks: What Else Do They Need to 'Arrest the Killer'?

A medical examiner hired by the family of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager shot to death by a police officer in Missouri, said Monday that Brown could have survived all but the last of six shots — a bullet to the top of the head. “This is the last shot, and this is the only shot that is not treatable,” said the medical examiner, Dr. Michael Baden, pointing to a diagram of where the six...

Stephanie Chang Is Poised to Make Political History in Michigan

Stephanie Chang won the Democratic primary for 6th District Representative and is poised to become the first Asian-American woman in Michigan’s State Legislature.
