JoBros and The Salvation Army (team up this holiday season to promote the charity’s new virtual red kettles. Plus Seventeen magazine partners up with Dell to offer readers an exclusive chance to buy a Product RED laptop—partial proceeds go to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS) (Trendhunter) (Derek Baird: Barking Robot)
- Mixed martial arts (carves a niche at some high schools…as long as they don’t actually hit anyone) (New York Times, reg. required)
- Doing good pays (for college. Tufts program helps grads pay down their debts in exchange for working in public service. In bad news for college students, Tennessee’s new anti-P2P law will cost colleges $13 million) (USA Today) (Ars Technica)
- X-Men meets the OC (the creator of “Gossip Girl” and “The OC” is set to pen “X-Men: First Class,” a reboot of the superhero franchise featuring a new, young cast) (E! Online via Yahoo! News - thanks Derek!)
- National Geographic (launches a video games division that will partner with Sony and Bandai to produce family-targeted games) (Cynopsis Kids)
- Amy Poehler’s ‘Smart Girls’ launches (with a trailer and two bonus videos. Interesting to note it is being “presented by” Barbie)
- JuicyCampus banned (from Tennessee State University - look for more campuses to follow suit) (Tech Crunch)
