Ruben Harris is a professional cellist and a recovering investment banker who now leads partnerships in San Francisco for Honor, a healthcare startup focused on seniors.

He is also a founder of the Breaking Into Startups podcast.

7,000 people drop out of high school every day.

The reasons why these students drop out are complex, but society tends to perceive these individuals negatively.

However, many of these people had to leave to support family or care for a member of the family, or faced other pressures that justify their decision.

Many of these students still want to learn a skill set that prepares them for the high-skilled careers that are the backbone of today’s economy.

Most Millennials are too young to remember Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times At Ridgemont High 1982 .

These days a Millennial college drop out looks more like Kramer LaPlante—clean shaven, slick hair, a six figure bank account, and juggling CNBC interviews between business trips to China and Manhattan.

LaPlante and Kassan were living in an apartment together at University of California Santa Barbara.

LaPlante was just going through the motions.

After years of being roommates this was finally our chance to do something together.

Within weeks thanks to the duo s savvy social media strategy and Millennial fan support, MVMT had become the second most-funded fashion campaign in Indiegogo history at the time raising over $290,000.

Steve Jobs, the man, the myth, the legend, is either universally admired or hated or, a little bit of both .

Today, as you will know if you are semi-obsessive about now-deceased company CEOs, marks five years since Jobs's death.

To remember, here are 10 interesting facts about the Apple co-founder's life:

Jobs was half Syrian, half American, and adopted at birth

Steve Jobs biological parents Abdulfattah "John" Jandal and Joanne Schieble Simpson became pregnant at the age of 23.

Simpson s father forbade the two from marrying, and due to the stigma surrounding single motherhood at the time, the two decided to put Steve up for adoption.

University researchers hope to use the data to lower dropout rates.

(Dropping out refers to those who have left higher-education entirely and those who transfer to other colleges.)

The card data tells researchers how frequently a student has entered a residence hall, library, and the student recreation center, which includes a salon, convenience store, mail room, and movie theater.

“By getting their digital traces, you can explore their patterns of movement, behavior and interactions, and that tells you a great deal about them,” Sudha Ram, a professor of management information systems who directs the initiative, said in a press release.

Researchers have gathered freshman data over a three-year time frame so far, and they found that their predictions for who is more likely to drop out are 73 percent accurate.

They also have plans to give academic advisers an online dashboard to look at student data in real time.

p Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg features in a long line of university dropouts who became millionaires after founding technology companies - Bill Gates and Steve Jobs among them.

But 12 years after leaving Harvard to work on Facebook full time, he has returned to pick up his degree.

Zuckerberg founded what was then called "The Facebook" in his college dormitory in 2004.

The service was at first limited only to Harvard students before expanding to other Ivy League universities.

He is due to deliver the university's commencement address, a speech given to graduating students, later on Thursday.

After receiving the honour he posted a photo of him with his parents Edward and Karen Zuckerberg.

Harvard just announced that Facebook founder and aspiring politician Mark Zuckerberg will deliver this year’s commencement address.

As part of the deal, the university will give Zuckerberg an honorary degree and an honorary doctoral gown.

This, despite the fact that Zuck dropped out of Harvard College in his second year.

Clearly elated by this turn of events, Mark Zuckerberg invited Bill Gates to sit on a sofaand endure almost 60 seconds of very bad acting as he pretended to spot Harvard’s invitation on his iPhone.

Gates casually munches on snacks as Zuck grins at him like an impatient school boy with a crush on the teacher.

The ageing Microsoft founder and fellow dropout—who gave the Harvard commencement address ten years ago when Zuck’s wife Priscilla graduated as Mark watched from the crowd—is a good sport about the whole thing.

If you've been experiencing Wi-Fi dropouts and slow speeds on your home network recently, certain Google devices might be to blame according to several users in the Google Home Help Forum, as reported by Android Police.

One anonymous user in the forum started a thread after noticing that their Wi-Fi network had started dropping out with alarming frequency upon returning home with an Android device.

As an experiment, the user disconnected their Google Cast-enabled devices from the network, including an Android handset, multiple Chromecasts and Google Home Mini units.

A stable network that has had no dropouts or issues since.

After doing some research online, the user noticed several other posts from people with similar issues, all from around the same period (December 2017).

The issue was reported on the forums of several router manufacturers, leading one representative from router-maker TP-Link to return with an explanation.

You don't necessarily have to go to college to achieve success -- and people like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates prove that.

Who says you have to go to college to get a degree?

After dropping out of Harvard University 12 years ago, Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he will be finally getting his college degree — an honorary degree that he will receive as part of his presentation of the commencement address to Harvard’s class of 2017.

The news was first announced through a post on Harvard’s website, however it was followed by a whimsical and completely cringe-worthy video on Zuckerberg’s Facebook page — which also starred none other than Bill Gates, who gave the commencement address at Harvard back in 2007.

Incidentally, Zuckerberg attended that address — at the time, his wife Priscilla Chan was graduating.

“Mark Zuckerberg’s leadership has profoundly altered the nature of social engagement worldwide.
