The class of 2012 is about to get a gigantic wake-up call: In the last year, college graduates were more likely to be employed as servers, bartenders, and food-service helpers than as engineers, physicists, chemists, and mathematicians combined. Only three of the 30 occupations with the largest projected number of openings by 2020 will require a college degree—teachers, college professors, and accountants. 
Today, new numbers find that half of college grads under 25 are out of work.

It’s convenient to think of the trash can as a black hole into which scraps and discards and mistakes disappear. But these cities, some of the greenest cities in the world, know better. Producing more trash means wasting more money and using up more resources that could be put to better use. 
A few lessons on taking out the trash.

The fact is, freelance is becoming the new 9-to-5, whether we want it to or not. Tom Fisher, writing in the Huffington Post, reports that “contingent workforce,” meaning the self-employed, freelancers, or “accidental entrepreneurs” laid off from full-time positions, will make up between 40 and 45 percent of the workforce by 2020 and become a majority by 2030.
