The Newyorker has put its entire archives online which gives users access to some outstanding past articles. For today, the links have been provided by a reader of two recent Newyorker articles.

Yesterday, I was reading a piece on how Ivy League colleges are not very useful – it spoke about the opinions of a professor from Yale who has been questioning an Ivy League education for some time now. Today’s first link is a hilarious take on college education – the author supplies cartoons to complement what another author Joshua Rotham has to say on “What college can’t do”. It gives glimpses of the current culture and education.

The second one is on Ebola – it is scary as it points out the sad end for caretakers in spite of quarantine measures.
