"Researchers have created a font that can boost your memory⠀

Ironically named "Sans Forgetica", the font is a handy type-tool for stressed-out students who are struggling to remember their notes.⠀

The font is more difficult to read than most typefaces – and that’s by design. It prompts your brain to engage in deeper processing.⠀

To make your brain work harder to retain information, the font is legible yet evidently broken and disconnected. Since chunks of words are removed, the brain is required to put more effort into reading.⠀

Sans Forgetica has promising statistics but comes with limitations. It’s not for every day reading and you wouldn’t want novels printed in it - this would probably just cause a headache⠀

Want to try it out? Download Sans Forgetica for free via the link in our bio."

Seth's Blog: The problem with forced rankings
"...When the US News college list started to get traction, plenty of college presidents spoke out in opposition. Over time, though, they discovered that being well ranked was profitable, and in an industry that touches billions of dollars a year, status leads to money and money leads to more status... Today, many colleges are intentionally gaming the system by changing what they originally stood for simply to move up.

High rankings do more than distort the behavior of those that seek to move up. High rankings attract the sort of people who don't want to discover their own 'best'. Who want to be around others that care about high rankings. Who will run to the next high rank the moment the world changes. And those that are attracted to the winner of a forced ranking change the very tenor of the place they chose. So now, that restaurant that used to be special is merely crowded. Now the company that only keeps its top performers is a horrible place to work..."

How to Write Quick Research Papers and Essays - Album on Imgur
RNJ-marketing-material = we should get a lot of content like this that is useful for college students and start posting it on our site. Write it in a way that references Kean, but it's blatantly pandering. Perhaps mention a specific professor that is known as being a tough grader. ----- Be sure to read the comment thread by shadowex: https://imgur.com/gallery/yEQSv/comment/1125100087 talking about how this is formulaic writing and it would result in a mediocre grade
