Audiences Want More Diverse Film Casts, Despite Studio Fears — Study

Thu, 2016-05-19 12:40

When Hollywood is taken to task for the lack of diversity in high-profile films, decision-makers' responses tend to boil down to the idea that they're actually giving audiences what they want. Movies led by familiar (usually meaning white) faces are the most profitable, they argue, hence the casting of Scarlett Johansson in "Ghost in the Shell" and Tilda Swinton in "Doctor Strange."

MBA News: Rising tuition, rising demand

Thu, 2016-05-19 12:30

In 2010, McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management did something extraordinary. It more than tripled the cost to attend its MBA program. The idea behind it was to make the program more self-sufficient and to rely less on money from the government of the province of Quebec. This year, the Montreal-based school will see a record number of applications, up 15% from last year. The director of the program says the increase in tuition has only raised the school’s cache, convincing people that more expensive means higher quality.
