Homework is the literal worst. You head home after a rough day of say, third grade, sit down to watch your favorite cartoon with your favorite snack, trying to wash away thoughts of gym class, gross school lunch and rejection from your first crush and then…your heart sinks.

Copies of the classic American novels have been lifted from the shelves of classrooms and libraries across a school district in Accomack County, Virginia, according to The Washington Post. While the books are already gone, the school district still has to decide whether it’s going to permanently ban them. “We have a committee looking at all of this,” Chris Holland, district superintendent, told Delmarva Now. “There’s been no recommendation right now.” Read more…More about Academic Freedom, The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn, To Kill A Mockingbird, Education, and School
Forget college football. It’s time for the Collegiate StarLeague, which just opened registration for the 2016-2017 season. Gamers can enter college-level tournaments in StarCraft 2, League of Legends, Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Vainglory. Interested North American college players have the whole month of September to register for CSL and create or join a team. Each game has at least two divisions, except for StarCraft 2 and Vainglory. That means your school can be represented by more than one team in the other three games. Most games have a registration fee. Competing teams and players have the opportunity to win cash and scholarship prizes. Prize pools range from $8,000 in StarCraft 2 to $50,000 in CS:GO and Dota 2.

As pointed out by the Daily Show Twitter account, a few sentences of Donald Trump Jr.’s speech seem to have been lifted directly from an article in The American Conservative, published last May.

From journalism to digital marketing to the finance or business fields, nearly every industry’s hiring managers are clamoring for talent who know the golden rule: Content is king.
