DailyCents.com Introduces Green Cents Blogger Linda Daly and Welcomes Back Jane Dough

Friday, May 30th, 2008 | Financial Press Release

DailyCents.com announces the addition of two new bloggers. Linda Daly will be blogging about living green and being socially responsible, and Jane Dough makes her return to Daily Cents where she will once again share tips on personal finance.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2008 -- DailyCents.com, a daily e-mail service, blog, and website that delivers punchy information to help the multi-tasking woman, announces the addition of Green Cents, a timely blog about how women can live a greener life without complete sacrifice and how being charitable and socially responsible increases the humanity of both the recipients and the contributors. In addition, Daily Cents is also pleased to welcome back Jane Dough, our own personal finance expert.

Linda Daly is a firm believer that any party worth its salt should benefit a charity. Otherwise what's the point? AND, if a charity does not have a party then she's going to do her best to make sure people know about the good work that's being done. She and her friends have their own charity, Vintage Hollywood that holds an annual food and wine event for charities in Southern California. When she's not out on a personal crusade to raise awareness and funds for nonprofits worldwide, she lives as "greenly" as possible in Los Angeles with her two kids, two dogs, two fish, horses, goats, sheep donkeys and chickens.

Jane Dough, the doyenne of personal finance, joins DailyCents.com as a twice-weekly blogger -- and considering the state of our economy, not a moment too soon. Jane will help explain what's happening on the financial frontier and -- more importantly -- how those events will impact us personally. Jane plans to write on headline issues like the current mortgage meltdown, $4-a-gallon gasoline and the credit crunch as well as fundamentals close to women's pocketbooks such as savings, funding educations, retirement and debt.

"The addition of Linda Daly and the return of Jane Dough to our editorial staff is another effort on our part to bring the most relevant and useful information to our readers," said Brian McMahon, President and CEO of Daily Cents. "We want to provide fun, helpful, practical information for our audience, and we are committed to building a recognized team of experts to ensure it."

myUsearch Announces Scholarship for Students Frustrated With College Admissions

Friday, May 30th, 2008 | Financial Press Release

College matching service, myUsearch.com, will award a $1000 scholarship to the student with the best ideas to improve college admissions.

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 21, 2008 -- As high school seniors approach graduation, students and parents can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The college admissions process is finally over. Those countless hours spent agonizing over SAT scores, college essays and admissions standards have finally come to an end. Unfortunately, getting accepted to college is only the first battle...figuring out how to pay for it can be even worse. To numb the pain, college matching service, myUsearch, has launched a college scholarship that asks students to tell the story of their excruciating college admissions process and suggest ways for colleges to make it better.

News Image

Last year's college admissions were reported to be more competitive than ever. The acceptance rates at Yale, Harvard, and Columbia fell below 10 percent for fall 2007 admissions and state schools are becoming much more difficult to get into. This has left many students with shattered dreams and dimmed expectations for the 2008 school year.

"The college admissions process has this smoke and mirrors aspect to it", says Derek Kraus, founder of myUsearch. "Students have to jump through hoops and they are often left with no idea why they did or did not get in to the college of their choice. By offering this scholarship, we will give students a forum to voice their frustrations with the application process, and hopefully this will start the dialogue needed to convince schools to make the appropriate changes."

This 1000 dollar college scholarship will be open to students starting college in 2008. The scholarship is financial need based, requiring a household income of less than 100,000 dollars. To apply for this and any other open scholarships, students must complete the myUsearch questionnaire and meet the requirements of the available college scholarships.

About myUsearch, LLC:
myUsearch, LLC is an unbiased online resource dedicated to objectively matching students to schools and providing fair and accurate college enrollment information. The myUsearch Smart Questionnaire determines the needs of students in order to accurately match them with any of the 3,400+ colleges in the company database. The myUsearch blog offers an honest view of colleges and the college enrollment process. myUsearch offers students a completely honest and objective match by providing the names of matching colleges regardless of their willingness to pay for a listing, and allowing only the schools that match the students' criteria to contact them.
