A Florida college professor has been fired after a school investigation found that she ordered students to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the 2012 presidential elections.
The Board of Trustees at Brevard Community College (BCC) voted to fire professor Sharon Sweet. “The board voted 3-1, with one member absent, to dismiss professor Sweet,” school spokesman John Glisch told Campus Reform Wednesday afternoon.
“The termination took effect immediately, ending pay and benefits for Sweet who had been suspended with pay under provisions of the United Faculty of Florida collective bargaining agreement with the college, pending the board’s decision,” the school added in a press release.
Sweet had been placed on leave without pay while the investigation was ongoing.

Rutgers has fired embattled athletic director Tim Pernetti (left), who staunchly defended men's basketball coach Mike Rice after the coach was accused of assaulting his players.

The video footage was brought to the attention of university officials by former Rutgers director of player development Eric Murdock (right). Murdock's contract was not renewed shortly after he came forward with the controversial video.
Now Murdock himself is under investigation -- by the FBI.

We've all heard the stories of food contamination, thefts and assaults committed by McDonald's employees. Well, one McDonald's franchise in Massachusetts has decided to take proactive measures to increase the intelligence and maturity levels of its cashiers.
Update: According to an article in today's Boston Globe, the owner of the Winchendon, Mass. McDonald's says his restaurant is an equal opportunity employer, and that the ad seeking cashiers with advanced degrees and 2 years experience is bogus.
“We do not require a bachelor’s degree for employment,” said Joe Ruscito in a statement. “My organization is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse work force.”

You may have heard that rapper Nicki Minaj fired her entire Glam squad for making her look like a hot mess these last couple of years. Well, Terrence Davidson, Nicki's wig maker, decided to come forward and clear the air in a letter to his fans (yes, he has fans).
Terrence'e letter reads more like an online resume than clearing the air. He's basically putting the word out that his questionable wig-making skills are available for the right price. But after seeing the disastrous wigs on Nicki, he probably won't get too many job offers.
Maybe Beyonce needs a wig maker who specializes in circus or sideshow style wigs?
Read Terrence's letter after the break.

Just when we thought Beyonce was taking a break from hogging the spotlight, she posted this photo on her social networking page today. The photo appears to show Beyonce wearing overalls while driving a UPS truck. I checked, and a Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter did not apply for a job at UPS recently.
Just last week, Beyonce posted photos of herself working the night shift on a construction site. Make that money girl.
