  • Kim Jong-Un Has A 'Pleasure Squad' Of Teenage Girls Who Follow Him Around The World

    Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered a new ‘pleasure squad’ of teenage girls to serve his every whim. The North Korean leader originally stopped the practice – which has been employed in the country for decades – following the death of his father and predecessor, Kim Jong-il, in 2011. Toshimitsu Shigemura, a professor at Tokyo’s Waseda University and an authority on North Korean affairs, told The Telegraph, that at first Kim Jong-un stopped the practice because he didn’t trust the girls.

  • When It Comes to College Costs, Middle-Class Kids Are Still Screwed

    The study by researchers at Vanderbilt University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Institute for Research in Higher Education found that since 2008, overall college affordability has fallen 45 states, owing in part to slashed state spending on higher education in the years during and since the Great Recession. As a result, low- and middle-income earners in certain states now must spend as much as 76 percent of their annual income to pay a student’s tuition and expenses at a four-year public school, according to the study, The 2016 College Affordability Diagnosis. Meanwhile, financial aid doesn’t go as far as it did before, access to it has tightened, and a working student would need to work so many hours to pay the bills—and probably is already facing pressure to support him or herself, or a family—that college would take a backseat to finding a job, the study says.

  • Everything we know about the suicide at Apple’s headquarters this week

    This has been an incredibly difficult week for Apple . The company shed more than $40 billion in market capitalization on Tuesday evening following its fiscal first-quarter earnings report, which showed a much steeper decline than Wall Street was expecting in both profit and iPhone sales. Then, just one day later, tragedy struck Apple's Cupertino, California headquarters when one of the company's employees was found dead in a conference room on campus. The story is still unfolding two days later. DON'T MISS:  Completely change the look of your iPhone with round folder icons, no jailbreak needed The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 9-1-1 call placed from Apple's Cupertino campus at approximately 8:35 a.m. PDT on Wednesday. According to a brief press conference later that morning, the call came from an Apple employee who said that there was a “person down” on campus. Upon responding, police found the body of a young male who was later confirmed to be an Apple employee. On Thursday evening, the Santa Clara County coroner’s office identified the deceased male as 25-year-old Edward Mackowiak, according to Reuters . A LinkedIn page that has now been deleted listed Mackowiak as a software engineer at Apple, and the company had earlier confirmed that he was an employee. A cause of death was then released on Friday morning. In a written statement, the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office said: "The Medical Examiner determined the manner of death was suicide and the cause was a gunshot to the head." TMZ  had reported soon after the story broke on Wednesday morning that a gun was found by police near Mackowiak's body. “We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of a young and talented coworker,” an Apple spokesperson said on Thursday in a statement given  to Matt Keller , a reporter with local ABC affiliate ABC 7 . “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends, including the many people he worked with here at Apple. We are working to support them however we can in this difficult time.”
