Hillary Clinton takes from the students she says needs help

You could give scholarships to thousands of students, benefit research on campus, give more students grants for research and studying.

Sending a text, tweet, or FB Like is NOT communication

Sending a text message is not communication. Sending a tweet is not communication. Liking a post on FaceBook is not communication. Posting a photo of your main course meal is not communication.

A PhD in me: Margo Kingston

She won’t just be Doctor Margo – she’ll be a doctor of Margo. This might be the most indulgent exercise in academic history.
Tim Blair

What a disgraceful waste of taxpayers’ money. Tim Blair alerts us to a most unusual and unfortunate misuse of public money.   A grand announcement from self-obsessed former Fairfax frightbat Margo Kingston: It’s official, folks. I have a scholarship to do a Doctorate in Creative Practice at Macquarie University … Thus an ex-nursing trainee will become Dr Margo! And you’re paying […]

Cate Blanchett

European fashion label Zara’s first Queensland store at Robina

Zara opened their first Queensland store on the Gold Coast this morning. Zara is one of the case studies I use in my “Strategic Business Growth College” — a two-day management program I ran just this month at the Majestic Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
