Graduates of four-year universities flock to community colleges for job skills

“There’s a lot of disciplines universities aren’t offering,” said Cecilia Rios-Aguilar, an associate professor of education at UCLA and director of its Higher Education Research Institute, who said it’s no surprise that college graduates who want more specialized training or career changes are turning to community colleges. “The universities aren’t keeping up.”

By definition, community colleges are more responsive to the needs of local employers than some universities, said Davis Jenkins, a researcher at the Community College Research Center.

“Certainly the regional universities should be more customer-responsive,” he said.

PepsiCo is bringing refreshments to BravoCon – including a special limited-edition beverage, Pepsi Sparkling Rosé, a non-alcoholic concoction meant to taste a little like champagne or sparkling wine

The Pepsi move to create a bespoke beverage is indicative of how far some advertisers will go to capture new attention from consumers. Kaplan, the Pepsi executive, says the new Sparkling Rosé is the result of work that involves various divisions of the company, including Pepsi’s research and development team. The drink has caffeine, he says, and “tiny champagne bubbles” that create an interesting drinking experience. Pepsi is issuing just 100 limited-edition bottles of the stuff, and will also offer samples at the event.

Films like “Dumbo,” “The Aristocats,” “Lady and the Tramp” and “Jungle Book,” some of which were made nearly 80 years ago, offer a disclaimer saying,” “This program is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.” Since its initial release in 1941, “Dumbo” has been criticized for including a version of vocal blackface, while “The Aristocats” and “Peter Pan” have been the subject of scrutiny for racist depictions of characters.
