Long Island Business Institute
Long Island Business Institute, founded 1968, with campuses located in Flushing Queens and Commack, Long Island, is pleased to announce the establishment of a downtown Manhattan Extension Site, located at 408 Broadway, just south of Canal Street. The college is offering Associates degrees and certificate programs and serving a community of over 1000 students, LIBI offers programs including Homeland Security and Security Management, Court Reporting, Elder Care, Digital Marketing, Hospitality Management, Office Management, Accounting, Business Management and ESL. Students have the opportunity to transfer to four-year colleges in the New York City area and the Northeastern region, as a result of LIBI’s formal agreements with multiple notable colleges and universities. Students will have access to the convenient Tribeca location as well as both the Queens and Long Island Campuses. President Monica Foote of LIBI, who spearheaded the establishment of LIBI’s first Manhattan location, notes “the launch of an LIBI site in Tribeca, a crossroads of the financial and cultural heart of New York City, is the logical next step in the evolution of LIBI, which has focused on providing cutting-edge and in-demand career education”. College chairman Leon Lee states “the competitive programs we have offered at LIBI for over four decades are aimed at an underserved population, the career-minded student, and tailored to the needs of the New York City business and legal community, homeland security, and the growing elderly population. As we are closely aligned with these communities, we know that now is the appropriate time to establish a presence in Manhattan.”LIBI is entering the New York City financial district, filling a much-needed vacancy in quality post-secondary career education. The mission of LIBI has been to provide affordable, high quality post-secondary education, which is especially needed in the current environment. Professors are typically practitioners, with extensive experience in their fields, a factor which LIBI’s administration feels differentiates the value of an LIBI education from a job placement standpoint. The emphasis on the transferability of an LIBI education either directly to the business world or to areas of further post-secondary education is a further differentiator: student choice at the end of his or her LIBI education is a major factor in students choosing to enter LIBI. The convenience of a downtown Manhattan location will be another strong draw and a further benefit to students. LIBI offers generous scholarships and financial aid to students who qualify. In addition, LIBI offers membership to qualified students in the Alpha Beta Kappa National Honors Society. LIBI is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), one of the oldest and largest national accrediting bodies in the United States.

Free online videos are revolutionizing online education
Knowledge has always been power, and access to it was once very tightly controlled. Thankfully, we now live in a world where most people accept that, while not all goods and services should be equally distributed, it would be best if education were. Higher levels of education mean happier, healthier people working together to solve bigger and harder problems. And we’ve got a lot of big, hard problems to solve. The steps that were first taken by the public education system are being expanded...
Why you should take a year off before going to college
Thinking of taking some time away from the books before heading into college? Robin Barton, editor of Lonely Planet’s “The Big Trip,” says you’re not alone. “People are seeing gap years not as an excuse to party, but as a part of personal growth,” Barton says. “You can volunteer, you can teach, you can do all sorts of things. You can simply travel and work if that’s what you want to do.” The evidence is there. Ninety-seven percent of gap year-goers said it helped them become more mature, and 93...
Is Harvard really discriminating against Asian applicants?
[REUTERS] In recent months, Harvard University has come under attack in court for allegedly limiting the number of Asian-American students it admits. A Reuters examination reveals how the lawsuit brought in their name arose from a broader goal: upending a nearly 40-year-old Supreme Court decision that has primarily helped blacks and Hispanics. A civil rights group representing African-American and other minority students has recently filed papers seeking to enter the case, arguing they are the...
The latest threat to college students is ... free tanning?
Parents now have something else to worry about when sending their kids to college: unfettered access to tanning beds. A new survey has found that up to half of apartment housing within a five-mile radius of the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University offer free on-site indoor tanning, often to minors (which is illegal). And it’s not just Texas, either: Another recent study found that half of the top 125 colleges ranked in the U.S. News and World Report have indoor tanning either...

City Council considers limits on Uber's growth
The City Council Transportation Committee held a hearing Tuesday to discuss legislation that would limit the growth of car services including Uber for one year.

Bunny infestation overruns Boston
An infestation of urban-dwelling creatures usually causes people to gag or get the frights, but one furry city animal is taking over Boston's terrain – and winning its residents' hearts. Boston is known to be home to many creatures people look to avoid: Rats, squirrels, mice, roaches, pigeons, seagulls, mosquitos, plenty of other bugs and birds, raccoons, possums, and sometimes a few Yankees and Lakers fans. But the city is experiencing the most adorable annual “infestation” imaginable:...
Jada Pinkett Smith talks the 'erotic exhaltation' of 'Magic Mike XXL'
Stepping into the scene-stealing shoes of Matthew McConaughey is certainly a daunting task, but Jada Pinkett Smith was up to the challenge. In fact, she walks into "Magic Mike XXL" and walks right away with the movie. Or struts away with it, rather. "Nobody can replace Matthew, let's just be real on that. I surely know I can't, with his fine self," Pinkett Smith says. "But I actually didn't feel the pressure being a woman. If a man had actually played that role, that's a hard act to follow. But...
Halle Berry doesn't miss 'drive-by' breastfeeding on 'Extant' set
Last summer, astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) thought she'd saved humanity from certain doom, but of course that's not the case or else there wouldn't be a Season 2 for "Extant," Berry's first foray into network television, which returns tonight. So what has Berry learned from finishing her freshman year on TV? "It is a whole lot of work. I mean, I've never worked so hard in my life as last year," Berry says. "And I was nursing — my baby was 3 months old — so I was doing drive-by nursings...
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner get divorced for their 10th anniversary
Remember a month ago when sources were saying that Ben Affleck wanted his and Jennifer Garner's divorce announcement to go out before their 10th anniversary on June 29?

RELATED: Jennifer Garner calls in the lawyers "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce," the statement reads. "We go forward...
U.S. women edge Germany, advance to World Cup championship game
The U.S. women are now one win away from their third Women’s World Cup title and first since 1999 as they defeated Germany, 2-0, in the tournament’s semi-finals Tuesday night in Montreal. The Americans will play the winner of Japan – England (tonight, 7, FOX Sports 1) on Sunday (7 p.m., FOX) in the 2015 Women’s World Cup championship game in Vancouver. In a frantic second half against the Germans, the U.S. first avoided disaster, capitalized on a controversial penalty kick and then broke things...
SEC schools, Florida State far from best in home field advantage study
By and large, the SEC rules college football. But according to one recent study, the conference doesn't rule when it comes to home field advantage. In a recent report pieced together by statistician extraordinaire Paul Bessire of PredictionMachine.com, the Mountain West Conference, followed by the Big 12, dominates home field advantage in terms of how a team will perform at home against an “average opponent.” How that plays out though is different than one might, at first glance, consider when...
NBA Free Agent Watch: Which 5 players are most likely to sign with new teams?
Recent announcements from Lebron James and Dwayne Wade (opting out of contracts) have sparked the imagination of many hoping to see the NBA's top superstars in different team colors.

And so the attention is turns to some other NBA players who may be on the move when free agency officially begins Wednesday. Here are Metro's...

Yes, you CAN get work done in a coworking space — here’s how
The first time Jonathan Tzou entered a coworking space was back in 2006, when he was a student at the University of Pennsylvania helping build a biomedical device prototype. “Workspaces like this were not super common at the time," says Tzou, who now works for a new task-completion app called Complete. But he loved it: “Building resources were ample, and mentorship was always within arm's reach," he says. "Without [that environment], I don't think our team would have been able to file our...
