According to a report, fewer than half of students under 25 will earn a degree. The half that do will be unemployed or working in a job that doesn't yier bachelors. Too many people are drifting off to four year college without a purpose or understanding of the relationship between what they might study and how they're going to do in the job market.

Don't use Mirena if you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily or have certain cancers. Less than 1% of users get a serious infection called pelvic inflammatory disease. If you have persistent pelvic or stomach pain, or if Mirena comes out, tell your healthcare provider. If it comes out, use back-up birth control. Mirena may attach to or go through the uterine wall and cause other problems. Mirena can be life threatening and may result in loss of pregnancy or fertility. Ovarian cysts may occur, but usually disappear. Bleeding and spotting may increase in the first few months and continue to be irregular. Periods over time may become shorter, lighter, or even stop.
