certificate, certify, bachelordom, notary



China and India, home to a third of humanity, both face a marriage crisis that will last for generations. In India 500 year-old laws are being revised to allow men to marry out of caste, village and state—while in China 50m “guanggun” (光棍“bare branches”) look doomed to bachelordom http://econ.st/1HXY6J4



THE CERTIFICATE SOLUTION
A key goal of the Obama administration has been to create an environment in which every American receives at least one year of postsecondary education. One year is a notable time frame as that it doesn't correlate with an associate degree or a bachelor's degree. A report being issued today suggests that the United States needs to follow that cue and focus on a form of education that comes in a range of durations -- the certificate. The report, issued by Complete College America and prepared by FutureWorks, argues that it may be more viable for many Americans with limited time to earn a certificate than to earn a college degree. And the report notes that while those who take some courses toward a degree but do not finish are unlikely to gain much economically from their efforts, there is substantial evidence that certificates do advance people economically. The article is in Inside Higher Ed.
