There and thousands of college scholarships available to high school students every year which can of course be overwhelming. In an effort to help students narrow down their search, Bremen High School College & Career Counselor Kristine Bonebrake provides some effective scholarship search techniques. 1.

Matt Lauer looks on during the NBC News Commander-in-Chief Forum. Photo: Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Most weeks, New York Magazine writer-at-large Frank Rich speaks with contributor Alex Carp about the biggest stories in politics and culture. Today: NBC’s disastrous presidential forum, allegations of a Trump pay-to-play, and Fox News without Roger Ailes. Before Wednesday night’s presidential forum had even ended, reporters and fact-checkers were picking apart Matt Lauer’s failure to challenge Donald Trump’s false statements and attacking the parity of his questions.

As 2019 draws to a close, anyone glancing back at the year in the rearview mirror will find it unusually chock-full of Laura Dern moments. In February, she appeared on the big screen as the wife of Liam Neeson’s vengeful snowplow driver in “Cold Pursuit.” In April, she costarred in literary-hoax film “J.T. LeRoy” with Kristen Stewart. In May, she appeared in the wrongful-execution film “Trial by Fire.” The following month, HBO aired the second (and possibly final) season of “Big Little Lies,” the series that earned her an Emmy and a Golden Globe award (in 2017 and 2018, respectively). Last month, she was back in the multiplex for a memorable turn as a hard-charging divorce attorney in Noah Baumbach’s ”Marriage Story,” starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson (which started streaming on Netflix on Dec. 6).
