Brainstorming is sometimes a spur-of-the-moment activity. Arguably, the best tool for generating ideas remains the humble pen and paper. Again arguably, the second best tools are mobile phones and tablets.
"A proposed change that would lead to smaller Pell Grants for some students enrolled in online classes was intended to prevent financial aid fraud.
