8:23- FACEBOOK OR DISGRACEBOOK? 25% OF COLLEGE ADMISSIONS OFFICERS SAY THEY LOOK AT APPLICANTS' SOCIAL MEDIA 

Before the age of the internet, college admissions were seemingly just about getting good test scores and crafting the perfect essay. But then social media hit, and the application process suddenly included students feverishly scrolling through their profiles to make sure admissions counselors wouldn't find anything questionable or inappropriate.  But now, with the proliferation of Snapchat and Instagram stories, things are changing-again. Partially because these social platforms and features operate by displaying content that either disappears or can only be seen by approved friends and contacts, college admission officers are focusing less on applicants' social media presence.  

According to the latest report from Kaplan Test Prep, an organization that provides educational services, 364 admissions offers were surveyed from colleges and universities across the country, and only 25 percent reported that they look at applicants' social media profiles. This might still seem like a large percentage, and it is, but the number is actually down from 40 percent just three years ago (when the disappearing stories format was not yet released and/or popular).  

What you post on social media can and will be held against you, especially when it comes to getting into college.

8:43- WHOLE FOODS RANKED WORST ON CANCER-LINKED PACKAGE CHEMICALS

Whole Foods Market, hailed for its high standards for healthy food, ranked worst in a study of five major U.S. grocery chains for chemicals it uses in packaging at its popular hot-food bar. In response, the company said it has removed all the coated paper products in question and has started a search for new biodegradable packaging.  

The study -- released by watchdog groups Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families and Toxic-Free Future -- found that Amazon.com Inc.’s grocer was the biggest offender when it came to food contact papers that appear to have been treated with a class of chemicals, some of which have been linked to cancer. They found high levels of fluorine in five of the 17 items tested at Whole Foods -- four of which were containers for its salad and hot-food bar.
